The UK Final Cut User Group is hosting a special High Definition video event at next week's Video Forum.

The HD event will feature experts from Panasonic, Sony and Optex. HD will be talked about, demonstrated and projected through a Panasonic HD projector. Formats to be investigated include Panasonic DVCProHD and Sony's HDV.

User group director Rick Young called this an opportunity to experience HD first-hand: "It seems everyone is talking about HD at the moment and yet hardly anyone has seen it. What we're doing with this HD special is showing HD for what it is. Once we have all had a good look at it we can begin to access the impact it will have on what we do as video professionals."

The special event takes place at Video Forum on January 26 between 3.45pm - 5.45pm in the TV Technology Seminar Room on the show floor at Earls Court.
