The GTC was formed in 1972 and now has over 1,340 members worldwide and work in all aspects of television. The GTC is a non-profit making organisation, run by a Council of television professionals. It is financed partly by members' subscriptions but also by considerable sponsorship from a number of equipment manufacturers and suppliers. As a result, the GTC offers a channel for manufacturers to consult with working cameramen when designing new equipment. Our aim is to preserve the professional status of television cameraman and to establish, uphold and advance standards and expertise within our profession.
The GTC produces two publications Zerb, and GTC In Focus.
