NAB Show to Explore Artemis Lunar Exploration Program with NASA Administrator

Tue, 18 Feb 2020 16:46:48 -0500

NAB Show has confirmed NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine as a featured speaker for a NAB Show Main Stage session on Monday, April 20 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The session will focus on the use of advanced media technology in documenting NASA’s Artemis program, targeting a return to the Moon by 2024, sustainable exploration by 2028 and preparing for human exploration of Mars in the 2030s.
 
The Artemis program includes plans for robotic and human scientific research of the lunar surface and observations of the solar system that can only be performed beyond the Earth’s atmosphere. Paramount to the missions will be documenting human expeditions for the world to see, including the first woman and next man on the Moon by 2024.
 
“When we return to the Moon, the camera is the mission,” said Bridenstine. “Through advances in media technology, we look forward to sharing this incredible endeavor with the world using modern audio and video capabilities and distributing the content across an array of platforms.”
 
Bridenstine was nominated by the President, confirmed by the U.S. Senate and sworn in as NASA’s 13th administrator on April 23, 2018. The Administrator serves as NASA's chief executive officer, responsible for leading NASA in its mission to discover and expand knowledge for the benefit of humanity. This leadership requires articulating the agency's vision, setting its programmatic and budget priorities and internal policies, and assessing agency performance.
 
Before joining NASA, Bridenstine served in the U.S. Congress, representing Oklahoma’s First Congressional District, serving on the Armed Services Committee and the Science, Space and Technology Committee. Bridenstine’s career in federal service began in the U.S. Navy, flying the E-2C Hawkeye off the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier.

Audio-Technica Extends 600 MHz Rebate Program

Wed, 12 Feb 2020 17:22:08 -0500

Audio TechnicaAudio-Technica has extended its existing trade-in program for 600 MHz wireless systems through July 13. This initiative was designed to provide options for end users as the industry transitions away from wireless systems operating in the 600 MHz band (614-698 MHz), a move mandated by law as a result of the ongoing FCC wireless-spectrum reallocation. The program is designed to help wireless users switch to a system that accommodates the new guidelines outlined by the FCC.
 
The official cutoff date for any wireless system operating in the auctioned portion of the 600 MHz spectrum is July 13 and covers any device capable of tuning into that spectrum even if it’s not being used.
 
Gary Boss, marketing director, professional markets, Audio-Technica, says, “After several years of transitioning to the new standards, we are now in the final months of the use of the 600 MHz band by the public. This is truly the last chance to switch over to a new option that accommodates the new guidelines. Our rebate is intended to assist with a smooth transition for all wireless users.”
 
The following A-T wireless systems are eligible for the extended rebate, with the rebate amount:
 
2000 Series (single-channel): $50 trade-in
3000 Series (4th Generation) (single-channel) and 3000 Series network-enabled (newly introduced, now shipping): $75 trade-in
5000 Series (3rd Generation) (dual-channel receiver): $500 trade-in
System 10 stack-mount (single-channel): $50 trade-in
System 10 camera-mount (single-channel): $75 trade-in
System 10 PRO rack-mount (single-channel): $75 trade-in
System 10 PRO rack-mount (dual-channel): $150 trade-in

Sony TRIMASTER Series Unfurls New 4K HDR Monitors

Tue, 11 Feb 2020 16:49:09 -0500

Sony Electronics has made available its new set of high-grade 4K HDR monitors from Sony’s TRIMASTER range in the U.S. The PVM-X2400 (24’’) and the PVM-X1800 (18.4’’) professional 4K HDR monitors — first unveiled and demonstrated at the BSC Expo 2020 in London — set new standards in professional monitor performance.
 
The monitors provide high picture quality and accurate color reproduction thanks to Sony’s specified and dedicated panels, which offer ultra-high definition with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels and an impressive brightness of all-white luminance of 1000 cd/m2. For optimum film production, their wide color gamut matches the BVM-HX310 TRIMASTER HX master monitor. This means both monitors offer accurate color reproduction and precise greyscale, giving filmmakers a reliable tool to help make critical imaging decisions and faithful color matching throughout the workflow. With its compact size and high portability, the monitors are aimed to expand footprints in 4K HDR production, including versatile applications such as on-set monitoring, non-linear video editing, studio wall monitoring, and rack-mount monitoring in OB trucks or machine rooms.
 
The monitors also feature new Black Detail High/Mid/Low, which helps maintain accurate color reproduction by reducing the brightness of the backlight to reproduce the correct colors and gradations in low-luminance areas. Another new function, Dynamic Contrast Drive, dynamically changes backlight luminance to adapt to each scene or frame when transferring images from PVM-X2400/X1800 to existing Sony OLED monitor. This functionality allows filmmakers to check the highlight and low light balance of the contents with both bright and dark scenes.
 
The PVM-X2400 and the PVM-X1800 professional 4K HDR monitors will be available in the U.S. starting in July 2020.

ISE 2020: AIMS Establish IPMX Standards, Specifications for AV Over IP

Mon, 10 Feb 2020 16:37:27 -0500

At ISE 2020 in Amsterdam, the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) ProAV Working Group will introduce Internet Protocol Media Experience (IPMX), a set of open standards and specifications designed to enable carriage of compressed and uncompressed video, audio, and data over IP networks. IPMX addresses the ProAV industry’s need for a single set of common, ubiquitous standards-based protocols that ensure interoperability for AV over IP. The AIMS stand (15-B250) will feature information and technical sessions covering every aspect of IPMX.
 
“IPMX implements a standards-based approach based on SMPTE ST 2110, with features and capabilities that target the specific needs of the ProAV industry,” said David Chiappini, chair of the AIMS ProAV Working Group. “As manufacturers build IPMX support into their products, end users and integrators can be assured that those products truly conform to an interoperable and open standard for AV over IP.”
 
In addition to simplifying implementation of SMPTE ST 2110 and ensuring interoperability for AV-over-IP systems, IPMX incorporates further features tailored to ProAV installations. These features include AMWA NMOS IS-04 and IS-05 for discovery, registration, and connection management; and specifications for copy protection and security.
 
IPMX is the result of the AIMS ProAV Working Group’s efforts to define an open-standards approach to addressing the ProAV world’s move toward IP media. The working group’s approach for ProAV follows AIMS’ broader efforts with the broadcast/media industry — namely, to promote multivendor interoperability that will foster long-term protection of customers’ investments in technology and products. With the new IPMX open standards and specifications approach, AIMS presents a flexible, future-proof way to meet the video, audio, and data requirements of current and future ProAV solutions over IP — a framework for open, easy-to-deploy solutions.
