Common Sense Workplace Etiquette

By Woody Woodhall | January 26, 2014  from Pro Video Coalition

In the spirit of the New Year and of making the most out of the potential of another circle around the sun, I wanted to take a closer look at the ethics and attitudes of those people in our business who work and seem to work all the time. Some employees just have a sense about not only doing their work well, but also integrating with the team and understanding how to stay out of the way yet also being available to assist at any given moment.

The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K is now shipping at a new low price of US $2995. The new low price will be available for all customers, including existing pre-orders.

"The support from the creative community for the Blackmagic Cinema Camera and Production Camera 4K has been amazing," said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. "As with all our products, we work hard in production to reduce costs so we can pass along the savings, even to our first Blackmagic Production Camera 4K customers. The Blackmagic Production Camera 4K is a perfect companion for ATEM Production 4K switchers and we hope the new low price will help more customers to expand their Ultra HD live production set ups with even more camera angles!"
