FCC to Host Webinar on Virtual Volunteerism on Dec. 2

Mon, 30 Nov 2020 08:42:00 -0500

The FCC’s Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau (CGB) will be hosting a webinar to highlight Virtual Volunteerism, the practice of leveraging broadband to match individual volunteers with nonprofit organizations to provide direct services to those in need. The event will feature presenters from the United Nations and entities successfully using the Virtual Volunteerism model to provide services to their clients. The webinar will take place on Wednesday, December 2 starting at 1:00 p.m. EST and will be streamed live and for free at fcc.gov/live.
 
The goal of the webinar is to provide information on what Virtual Volunteerism is and how charitable and governmental organizations use the Virtual Volunteerism model to match willing volunteers from around the globe with those who could use their assistance.

Blackmagic Design Integrates Primestream's Xchange MAM/PAM Into DaVinci Resolve 17

Tue, 24 Nov 2020 08:38:00 -0500

Primestream’s Xchange media asset management and production asset management (MAM/PAM) platform has been integrated with Blackmagic Design’s newly launched DaVinci Resolve 17. The integration drives advanced content creation workflows by giving DaVinci Resolve users direct access to the libraries housed in Xchange and by enabling full round-trip content exchanges between the MAM/PAM system and DaVinci Resolve.
 
“With the release of DaVinci Resolve 17, we’ve taken editing, visual effects, audio, post, and color grading to the next generation with more than 300 improvements. One important aspect of this new release is its ability to play seamlessly with industry-leading content management platforms such as Xchange,” said Dan May, president at Blackmagic Design. “Our partnership with Primestream represents the industry’s first true integration of PAM/MAM with an advanced color grading and NLE platform. It means DaVinci Resolve can now tie directly into MAM/PAM ecosystems in a manner that simply wasn’t possible before, helping users streamline and simplify the workflows that drive content creation.”
 
Xchange is Primestream’s flagship, enterprise-ready, web-based asset management platform that offers single and multisite operations global access to their content and workflows. Using the DaVinci Resolve workflow integration SDK, Primestream has developed an Xchange Creative Panel for Resolve that enables content editors to perform several key content management tasks without leaving their familiar DaVinci Resolve environment. Users can search for media and projects held in Xchange. They can also import media, with markers and subclips, from Xchange to DaVinci Resolve, and they can export a media sequence from DaVinci Resolve and register it to Xchange.
 
“With the launch of DaVinci Resolve 17 and its support for Apple’s powerful new M1 line of Macs, postproduction teams are able to take their cinematic color grading and NLE capabilities to new heights. And now, they can take those workflows even further through seamless, end-to-end access to content assets under management by Xchange,” said Namdev Lisman, executive vice president of Primestream. “The integration brings the power of advanced MAM/PAM to Blackmagic Design’s large installed base of DaVinci Resolve users. At the same time, it brings into the fold creative team members who were previously isolated from content management workflows.”

FCC Modernizes 5.9 GHz Band to Improve Wi-Fi and Automotive Safety

Mon, 23 Nov 2020 08:00:00 -0500

The Federal Communications Commission today adopted new rules for the 5.9 GHz band (5.850-5.925 GHz) to make new spectrum available for unlicensed uses, such as Wi-Fi, and improve automotive safety. Specifically, the new band plan designates the lower 45 megahertz (5.850-5.895 GHz) for unlicensed uses and the upper 30 megahertz (5.895-5.925 GHz) for enhanced automobile safety using Cellular Vehicle-to- Everything (C-V2X) technology.
 
Increasing the amount of spectrum available for unlicensed operations is critical for meeting our nation’s connectivity needs. Today, Wi-Fi carries more than half of the Internet’s traffic. And during the COVID-19 pandemic Wi-Fi connectivity has grown in importance as Americans use it for connecting to videoconferencing, telehealth, and other critical applications and services. Offloading mobile data traffic to Wi-Fi has also helped keep America’s cellular networks from being overwhelmed and will continue to do so in the future. By one estimate, the economic value created by Wi-Fi in the United States is projected to double by 2023— reaching nearly $1 trillion.
 
The new rules also will improve automotive safety by reserving the upper 30 megahertz of the band for Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) services and designating C-V2X as the technology standard for safety-related transportation and vehicular communications. C-V2X uses cellular protocols to provide direct communications between vehicles and obstacles like other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians, and road workers, and to receive safety information from roadside transmitters. C-V2X has gained momentum both domestically and internationally. While the Commission designated Dedicated Short-Range Communications (DSRC) services as the technology standard for ITS services over twenty years ago, DSRC has not been meaningfully deployed, and this critical mid-band spectrum has largely been unused for decades. Today’s action therefore begins the transition away from DSRC services—which are incompatible with C-V2X—to hasten the actual deployment of ITS services that will improve automotive safety.
 
In addition to the new rules, the Commission adopted a Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking which proposes technical rules for outdoor unlicensed operations across the United States (except for limited number of areas) in the lower part of the band once ITS operations have vacated that spectrum. The Further Notice seeks comment on how to transition ITS operations in the band to C-V2X-based technology, including the appropriate implementation timeline and technical and operational parameters for C-V2X service. The Further Notice also seeks comment on whether the Commission should allocate additional spectrum for ITS applications in the future.
