Panasonic PTZ Cams Integrate LiveCTRL Control/Switching App

Tue, 15 Jan 2019 17:24:48 -0500

Panasonic has announced the immediate availability of the LiveCTRL mobile application enabling control, streaming, and switching of select Panasonic pan/tilt/zoom from an iPad Pro device.
 
LiveCTRL for iPad is now available in the iTunes store for free. LiveCTRL for iPad allows you to monitor/control a single camera, while in-app purchases unlock multi-camera features and enable streaming production and control of up to four cameras.
 
Panasonic’s current generation of PTZ cameras features advanced video encoding and control for IP networks. LiveCTRL leverages this functionality and can facilitate single or multi-camera live streamed monitoring and control that utilizes a newly-designed software joystick and remote operator interface for enabling smooth control and fine-tuning.
 
The LiveCTRL app is a partnership between Panasonic and Cinamaker Inc., the iOS-based live video production platform. LiveCTRL is a simple system affording streamed video, camera and audio control, and power, from a single cable. The app is compatible with Panasonic AW-HE40, AW-UE70 and AW-HE130 PTZ cameras as input sources. Users can also add iPhones as camera sources in addition to Panasonic cameras.
 
Live streamed preview and control of a single camera inherits the current web user interface functionality with a more elegant and modern interface, with the addition of camera presets with thumbnail preview so users can quickly remember and trigger presets for PTZ cameras.
 
With LiveCTRL, a single camera stream can be sent to streaming platforms and social media outlets such as Facebook Live and YouTube Live. Upgrading to the premium license permits a user to switch between multiple cameras, live stream, and record, record and mix audio, add graphics, titles, logos, and b-roll video, and push a finished production to the same streaming platforms and social media outlets. Free and premium features are powered by Cinamaker technologies.
 
In terms of operation, Panasonic cameras, iPhone camera clients, and the LiveCTRL application running on an iPad Pro device will be connected on a network, further advancing Panasonic’s network workflow.

CBS Sports Outlines Tech Innovations for Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta

Mon, 14 Jan 2019 17:16:04 -0500

CBS Sports continues its tradition of introducing innovation and technology to the sports broadcasting industry at the Super Bowl. CBS Sports will give viewers coverage of Super Bowl LIII on February 3 from Atlanta with its use of virtual augmented reality graphics, 115 cameras including, for the first time ever on any network in the United States, multiple 8K cameras, as well as 16 cameras with 4K capabilities.
 
Implementation of AR Graphics
For the first time ever on any network at a live sporting event, CBS’ Super Bowl LIII virtual plan includes the use of a live, wireless handheld camera showing augmented reality graphics, and up-close camera tracking on the field. This will allow the camera to get closer to these virtual graphics in a way that gives viewers different perspectives and angles including never before seen field-level views of these graphics.
 
CBS will utilize four cameras (including the SkyCam) with live augmented reality graphics, plus an additional 10 cameras with trackable first down line technology. In all, 14 cameras creating virtual graphic elements that are completely manufactured will seamlessly blend into the real environment of the broadcast.
 
8K
For the first time ever on any network in the United States, CBS will use multiple 8K cameras with a unique, highly-constructed engineering solution to provide viewers with even more dramatic close-up views of the action from the endzone including possible game-changing plays along the goal lines and end lines.
 
4K
Also for the first time ever on any network, CBS will deploy 16 cameras with 4K capabilities, as well as nine Sony 4800 camera systems strategically placed around the stadium. The cameras will provide additional live game camera angles, and give the production the ability to replay key moments of the game in a super slo-motion and an HD cut-out with zoomed-in perspectives with minimal resolution loss.
 
Scores of Pylon, Endzone Cameras
Viewers will see dramatic plays from every angle as every square inch of the endzones will have multiple camera angles providing coverage. Over 25 cameras will flank each endzone including HD cameras with super slo-motion capabilities, six 4K cameras, three-goal post super slo-motion cameras shooting the backlines, and 14 cameras embedded in pylons per each side of the field. A total of 28 pylon cameras will be a part of the 50-plus camera feeds from the endzones.

Neutrik Nominated for NAMM Technical Excellence & Creative Award

Thu, 10 Jan 2019 16:54:13 -0500

Neutrik’s XIRIUM PRO v3.0 has been announced as a nominee for the 34th Annual NAMM Technical Excellence & Creativity (TEC) Awards in the category of Outstanding Wireless Technology Achievement. Presented by The NAMM Foundation, The NAMM TEC Awards are bestowed annually in celebration of the pro audio community by recognizing the individuals, companies, and technical innovations behind today’s sound recordings, live performances, films, television, video games, and other media.
 
“We are honored to have received this nomination. XIRIUM PRO v3.0 is a unique product that greatly simplifies system connections by eliminating the cables. This makes long-distance ‘cable runs’ not only safer, but far more practical,”comments Peter Milbery, President of Neutrik USA. “Being a company recognized as a provider of connectivity solutions, XIRIUM PRO v3.0 not only expands upon and reinforces our company mandate, it also represents a solution that, presently, is very distinctive both in terms of its design and abilities. We are most appreciative of this recognition.”
 
The nomination announcement follows a two-month call for entries of standout technical and creative products and projects that have made a significant impact on modern sound and music. A panel of respected industry voters from pro audio publications as well as members of professional music, technical and creative organizations, along with select NAMM members carefully evaluated each entry before selecting XIRIUM PRO v3.0 for the nomination.
 
Central to XIRIUM PRO’s robust performance attributes is Neutrik’s DiWA (Digital Wireless Audio), which provides compression-free, FCC license-free, wireless transmission of audio within the 5 GHz band. XIRIUM PRO v3.0’s software now offers an Advanced Mode that provides additional control and settings options. Version 3 includes a new Temperature Monitor that displays the temperature — Low, Good, High — of the base stations utilized in a XIRIUM PRO system. Additionally, Version 3 incorporates considerably expanded operation and help documentation — enabling users to get up and running faster. XIRIUM PRO’s antenna options have also been upgraded. There are now two directional antenna options for use exclusively with XIRIUM PRO receivers. Further, the upgraded package also has provisions for a variety of remote mount antenna options.
 
The NAMM TEC Awards will be held in conjunction with The NAMM Show on Saturday, January 27 in Anaheim, California.

CES 2019: Twitter To Live-Stream Single-Player, Iso-Camera Angle From NBA on TNT Games

Wed, 09 Jan 2019 17:02:01 -0500

Today at CES 2019, the NBA, Turner Sports, and Twitter announced a live-streaming deal that will provide fans in the U.S. with a complementary experience on Twitter for 20 NBA on TNT games this season. During the second half of each of the games, fans can watch the action through a single-player, isolated camera view. Fans will vote on Twitter for the player they want to see featured during the live stream of selected regular-season and playoff games airing on TNT as well as the 2019 NBA All-Star Game.
 
“The NBA Twitter community is among the most vibrant in sports and entertainment,” says NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. “While watching NBA games on TNT, our fans on Twitter can now enjoy a unique second-screen experience that will further enhance the way fans engage with each other and the game.”
 
The live streams will debut during TNT’s presentation of the 2019 NBA All-Star Game on Sunday, Feb. 17 with an iso-cam of a fan-voted player. The schedule of regular-season and playoff live streams will be announced at a later date, along with the exclusive commentators who will provide analysis for this second-screen offering.
 
As part of the expanded relationship, the NBA, through its NBA Digital partnership with Turner, will continue to provide on-demand content from the @NBA Twitter handle, including video of pregame warmups, in-game and postgame highlights, and behind-the-scenes content.
 
Since joining Twitter in 2009, the NBA has built the largest Twitter community of any sports league in the world, with 27.5 million followers.
