Creative COW Magazine : In the Air: The Battle Over Spectrum Issue
Very close to the end of preparing this issue of Creative COW Magazine, we were delighted to add Debra Kaufman to the Creative COW team, as our new Associate Editor. After over 20 years as the most respected freelance writer in the industry, she has joined us full time, and we're truly honored. More prudent magazine builders would have waited for the next full cycle before getting underway -- but what fun would that be? Instead, with a week to go before our deadline, we added not one but two stories by Debra to this issue, both of which are featured on the cover.
Tim Wilson, Editor-in-Chief/Associate Publisher of Creative COW Magazine breathes "In the Air" of revolution and change with, "If the future you thought was out there someday is actually here today, what's really ahead in your future?"
Debra Kaufman addresses The Battle Over Spectrum: NAB and the FCC -- In a battle over long-held broadcast frequencies, sides are drawn.
Adventures in the Z-Plane -- Angela Wilson Gyetvan shares her considerable 3D expertise
The 4K Restoration of Martin Scorsese's "Taxi Driver": A talk with the team behind this historic film's 4K restoration
Charting Your Camera With today's incredibly powerful and feature rich cameras, there is a lot more to setting up your camera than just white balancing
OK Go: This Too Shall Pass -- A four minute single unbroken shoot makes an incredible video
3D Post: A Business in Progress -- Over half of George Bellias's business is already 3D. Here's why...
The Story of Bessie: Creative COW's 10th Birthday: Tim Wilson recalls the ups and downs behind the COW's success

There's Something in the AirThere's Something in the Air

In this 25th Issue of Creative COW Magazine, we've done something that we've never done before, which is to feature individual stories, rather than draw attention to an overall theme. We still have a theme, of course, so please allow Tim Wilson to introduce this issue by its official name: In the Air. We thought about calling it "On the Air," just in time for NAB, but we're doing more than just talk about broadcast. This issue is a look at, not just the changes that are coming to our industry, but also the changes that are already here. Your future may well have shown up already.
