A rare and fascinating look over the hacker’s shoulder.
Live hacks will be interspersed with discussion of how these hacks work, including both the human and technical factors behind each attack. Attendees will leave this talk with a greater awareness of how quick, simple and devastatingly effective attacks can be and what can be done, on both human and technical fronts, to better defend organisations and IP.
12:30 – 14:00 Lunch
14:00 – 14:45 HDR: Opinion vs. Fact
HDR, like any new technology, should increase creative freedom,
not limit it. Unfortunately, many equate ‘HDR’ with ‘Complicated’, a
belief exacerbated by the number of conflicting Opinions
surrounding the subject that are too often mistaken for Facts. In
truth there are far less technology ‘rules’ on the subject than many
facing their first HDR project realize, and that the most elegant
workflow usually requires the least number of steps. This
presentation is for industry pros new to HDR who would like to
replace their phobia of HDR with enthusiasm. There’s is nothing to
fear, just Make It Look Good!

14:45 – 15:30 Case Study: Loot
Upcoming high-stakes, factual entertainment Sky One series Loot follows eight individuals for two weeks as they attempt to locate a missing treasure and keep it out of the hands of some of Britain’s best detectives, who are determined to track the competitors down using old-fashioned sleuthing techniques combined with modern technology. Shine TV’s Matt Bennett and Tom Hutchings and LiveU’s Paul Shepherd will discuss how the latest cameras and 4G streaming technologies were used to tell the story of both citizen and detective from on-the-ground filming over a huge geographical area amidst the unpredictability of factual programming.
15:30 – 16:00 Break
16:00 – 17:00 Case Study: Review it Live from Anywhere!
