Getting Smarter With Your Smart Phone

A smartphone is an incredibly versatile device that can record, edit and send broadcast quality content - and can even be used to go live. This taster session will introduce you to the fundamental techniques you need to know, as well as looking at the best apps and accessories to improve it. The session is aimed at iPhone/iPod owners, and while those with other smartphones can come along, not every aspect will be relevant to them. Please bring your smartphone!

Ultra HD: Introduction to the World Beyond HD

Bigger is better?  Is 4K the future?  There are new opportunities beyond HD, but with those are a new set of challenges, technologies and jargon. This session puts Ultra HD in focus, de-blurs the terminology, and answers the questions production teams are asking.

Essential Social Media & Digital Tools

Explore how key tools can help you find original stories and content. You will also learn the most effective ways of reaching out to contributors; basic tools and techniques to help you verfy the information and content you are being given; and finally helping you understand the issues surrounding online ethics, copyright and permissions.



Registration on the day

Please arrive at Wales Millennium Centre Reception 15 minutes before your session starts.  You will then be taken to the appropriate venue. Detailed joining instructions will follow. Any booking related questions contact digitalcardiff@bbc.co.uk
