Once again i’m out in Doha avoiding the terrible British weather. This time i have a meeting room all of my own so i’m in charge of video & Powerpoint as well as sound this time! She’s a great little room with, as always in Doha, a top spec setup. Hmmmmm BSS graphics are just lovely aren’t they! We’ve just finished the Global Innovators 2013 conference and now we are heading into the first day of the meeting of the Supreme Education Council. All this and i’ll be back in the UK by the weekend! Shame I’ve had no time to make it up to the Moto GP!
A recent upgrade finally brings Dual Screen capability to the studio. A long time coming, perhaps this is the start of reaping the benefits of my hard work – or perhaps I shouldn’t go that far! All i know is that this is a lovely luxury that will be improving my workflow from now on! Editing audio to visuals on a separate screen & mixing with my analysis plugins in place, with room to breath and a comfy place to live – yes please! All this and my first little delve into the world of video/AV, something i’m fairly new too. I’ve got a variety of Display port & DVI adapters for Apple laptops now. Like gold dust these things. I’m now prepared for yet another type life saving adapter deployment. Powerpoint on a Macbook anyone? no problem. But surely a nice ThinkPad would do you nicer for your corporate doings?
After a rather early morning I’m sat here in Gatwick airport. I’m tired. I’m hot! An I haven’t even taken a single step in the Arabian heat.
I have to be brief as i’m boarding after my food and am still waiting for my curreny to arrive at the bureau de change! (They only stock £15 worth!)Were off to work at the QNCC – our first (in the flesh) international endeavour! I’m hoping to post from my hotel however i’m not sure how great the contact can be from inside the Emirates.
I’ll see you on the other side!
oh and P.S – Don’t pack a large variety of batteries in your hold luggage – doesn’t go down well with security! Although they did earn a whole lot of AA’s and a fresh pack of 4x 9v batteries! Airport tax eh!
