We decided to extend our rebate for these customers with 600 MHz systems that have been rendered illegal during this crisis.”

IBC Moves Forward With Virtual Showcase from Sept. 8-11

Fri, 10 Jul 2020 09:15:51 -0400

IBC has unveiled plans for IBC Showcase, a virtual event that is set to take place in September. Taking place from Sept. 8-11, it will feature three core components: an Exhibitor Showcase, a Sponsored Program of presentations, and discussions and comprehensive coverage of product launches via the online IBC Daily News site.
 
The event is taking place virtually after the decision was reached to cancel IBC2020 amid concerns around the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
 
The theme for the week is “Empowering Content Everywhere” with IBC offering attendees the opportunity to connect with their community and discover a new perspective at IBC Showcase, online and on demand.
 
“We’re excited to unveil IBC Showcase, an online platform that will give the media and technology community a chance to connect,” says IBC chief executive Michael Crimp. “It will provide a platform for exhibitors to launch and demonstrate their latest products and services, while others in the industry will be able to learn about cutting- edge technology and find out about the latest tools and techniques for creating and delivering great content. We would, of course, have liked to meet with you all in Amsterdam this year, but we hope instead to see you online during IBC Showcase in September.”
 
The Exhibitor Showcase will serve as a one-stop-shop for exhibitor innovation, offering insight into the latest products and solutions through demonstration videos, product launches, press conferences and curated workflow tours.
 
The Programs are a range of free-to-access sessions, with future-facing content from leaders across the media, entertainment and technology space. It will include sponsored sessions that will provide insight into cutting edge technology and solutions from the industry’s leading providers.
 
IBC is also continuing with its popular Accelerator Media Innovation Program. These fast-track, collaborative projects are addressing complex media and entertainment industry challenges across business and technology. Champions of the Accelerators include the BBC, ITV, ViacomCBS, Telenet/Liberty Global, Associated Press, Al Jazeera, BT, MovieLabs, Universal Studios, Paramount Studios, and Sony Innovation Studios.

Middle Atlantic Products Launches New Line of LundHalsey Visionline 24/7 Control Room Consoles.

Thu, 09 Jul 2020 09:02:54 -0400

Middle Atlantic Products, a brand of Legrand | AV, has announced the new LundHalsey Visionline 24/7 control room consoles. Visionline is the latest console family directly available from Legrand | AV and manufactured by solutions partner LundHalsey, the U.K.-based market leader in the design, manufacture, and installation of control room furniture solutions. Visionline features the same stylish, ergonomic design and durability introduced in LundHalsey’s premier Kontrol family, but in a smaller footprint and in straight, concave, and convex options to fit a control room of any size.
 
The new LundHalsey Visionline 24/7 control room consoles from Middle Atlantic Products, a brand of Legrand | AV.
“No two control rooms are exactly alike in size, function, or setup,” said Paul Dolynchuk, director, product management at Legrand | AV. “The new compact, modular Visionline console provides greater design flexibility for organizations who need customized multi-console configuration options in width, stand-alone, back to back, concave, or convex arrangements. We’re excited to offer this new console directly from Legrand | AV.”
 
The Visionline family includes two models: Visionline Air sit/stand console and Visionline fixed height 24/7 control room console. Visionline Air is a human-centered console designed to provide a sit/stand environment that optimizes operator well-being and comfort with an adjustable height between 26″- 47″. The work surface can be moved at the touch of a button or remotely via the mobile app. The Visionline fixed-height console is the perfect solution for any modern 24/7 control room. Designed to ISO 11064, the international ergonomic standard for control room design, the fixed-height model is supported by a robust frame providing perfect cable management, integration for active equipment, and class-leading industrial design.
 
Stylish and ergonomically designed, both models feature a modular steel bay system architecture and a .5-inch-thick compact laminate work surface with unmatched durability, manufacturability, and integrated cable management to keep cables neat and connections secure. Every console can be configured with single or side-by-side articulating monitor arm options that fully adjust to any user height and reach as well as with a range of accessories, including operated status control LEDs, corner LEDs, universal PDU, wireless charger, touch-sensitive desktop PDU, and a dimmable LED task light.
 
Customers will also receive complimentary custom design services to achieve the perfect solution for any control space. A dedicated project manager at Middle Atlantic will work with customers throughout the project, from design, to quote, to shipment. Services will include concept drawings and high-quality 3D renderings for an accurate vision of what the finished product will look like in the environment.

NewTek Intros TriCaster 2 Elite, Brings New Flexibility, Power to Productions

Wed, 08 Jul 2020 08:59:11 -0400

NewTek this week took the wraps off of TriCaster 2 Elite, delivering what the company says is “better than broadcast” functionality and flexibility. “We are using technology to take advantage of flexibility for remote and hybrid remote productions,” says Will Waters, NewTek, head of product management.
 
First up is the support of SDI, NDI, SRT, RTMP, RTP, HTTP, SRC, and smartphones for a system that has 60×45 video crosspoints, including 32 external inputs that automatically determine video format and resolutions up to 4Kp60. No tradeoffs are required with eight configurable mix outputs in HD or two in 4Kp60, as well as direct NDI outputs for media players, multiple streaming encoders, continuous NDI conversion of all 8 SDI inputs, and 8 independently selectable recorders for immediate replay.
 
“Having any source, anywhere, and SRT output on the streaming side is a big enhancement,” says Waters.
 
One of the key new features is “Live Call Connect” which gives the ability to run Webconference applications like Zoom, Skype, Teams, GoToMeeting, and more within the TriCaster and then pull video, like each separate participant, and then pipe it into its own input crosspoint.
 
“Those systems are now embedded as a component in productions and they are now standard for studio events and remote production,” he explains. “You can have up to nine callers per application.”
 
The system also uses AI to be content aware so even if there is an interruption it identifies the person for the input when the connection is reestablished. These features, along with almost unlimited traditional SDI sources, can be accessed and used simultaneously, meaning show producers will be able to connect with in-studio guests and remote video callers without compromise or worrying about connectivity.
 
Unlike conventional routing switchers, where creative limitations are the norm, each input includes proc amp tools, independent keying and cropping for crisper video, as well as triggers for automation. There is also mix minus and talk back functionality and the system also has eight mix/effects (M/Es) with four layers each.
 
The flexibility of the platform allows content creators to produce simultaneous mixes, deliver multiple 4K streams to different places at once, feed video walls and accommodate separate branding and language packages, record program and line cuts, and much more.
 
“Serving the needs well of those who make visual storytelling a key part of their business is made possible by combining IP networking, software-defined solutions and a focus on the customer experience. TriCaster 2 Elite currently has no equal in terms of capability and value and I believe that it is the best product we have ever made,” adds Dr. Andrew Cross, president of R&D for the Vizrt Group. “More than ever, businesses, governments, schools, houses of worship and other organizations tell us they are adopting broadcast techniques to communicate their message to their world more effectively as they seek to stay relevant in a rapidly changing environment.”
 
When it comes to integration, the TriCaster control API and automation tools deliver creative video production and IP workflow solutions that are highly interoperable with existing equipment, such as control room systems, video walls, multiviewers, media platforms and the like.
 
“The control API provides the ability to automate and trigger events in a bigger ecosystem,” says Waters. “And with remote KVM people can work on distributed workflows without needing to be next to each other.”
 
In addition there is enhanced integration with Adobe Creative Cloud tools, simplified teleprompter-based scripting with Microsoft Word document files, and the ability to render virtual and augmented reality scenes in real time from Adobe Photoshop files.
 
The system also supports non-standard frame rates and aspect ratios like 9:16 to help deliver content to social media apps that deliver vertical video clips. Other features include frame sync on every input, animated GIF support in buffers, social media publishing, audio mixing and routing, including support for DANTE and AES-67, among others.
