Vision blue family in US debut V inten® showcased the benefits of its recently completed Vision blue range at this year’s NAB2013. Appearing for the first time in the US is the Vision blue3, the much anticipated third and final pan and tilt head in the Vision blue family, displayed alongside the ultimate new accessory for the range, the Vision bluebridge. The Vision blue3 was developed for today’s intermediate weight 1/3” chip camcorders and highly accessorised lightweight DSLRs, and enables users to now select the perfect head to match their application across a wider range of payloads. The Vision bluebridge is an accessory that works with any of the pan and tilt heads in the Vision blue range to extend the payloads which can be perfectly balanced. DK Meter logging has arrived D K5, the newest addition to DK- Technologies award-winning DK meter range, is introducing Logging as its significant feature, allowing detailed documentation, visualization and evaluation of DK Metering data. On show for the first time at NAB 2013, the new DK5 Logging PC application allows for session based real time logging of metering data history on loudness, along with peak channel performance, essentially providing instant documentation and metering hindsight. The integrated log session database provides safe storing, identification and advanced search facilities, while data can be exported in several file formats for additional analysis and visualization.  www.dk-technologies.com Gold Spectrum wireless production series A nton/Bauer® showcased its new Anton/Bauer Gold Spectrum© Wireless Series at the 2013 NAB Show. A collaboration between Anton/ Bauer and Vitec Group sister company Integrated Microwave Technologies, LLC (IMT), Anton/ Bauers Gold Spectrum Series is comprised of the AB-HDRF Kit, AB-HDTX transmitter, AB-HDRX dual diversity COFDM receiver and/or AB Direct VU handheld receiver/monitor. The size of each component within the series makes it ideal for reality TV, ENG/ EFP, OB and live event coverage.  www.antonbauer.comw The Vision blue3 balances payloads of between 3.0 - 6.6kg (6.6 14.6lbs) and sits between the original Vision blue, (payload range 2.1 5kg/4.6 11lbs), and the recently launched Vision blue5 (payload range 5.5 12kg/12.1lb to 26.5lb). The bluebridge offers further flexibility to camera operators using any of these heads and works by shifting the payload range down, offering users a cost effective option by extending the payload capabilities of their chosen Vision blue system. 4K UHDTV live production workflow solutions www.vinten.com www.snellgroup.com In a move that significantly lowers the barriers to 4K production, Snell has announced that it will now offer 4K functionality at no additional charge in a range of products, including select routing switchers, fiber infrastructure, and the Kahuna 360 multi-format production switcher, which now enables users to mix and match any combination of SD, HD, 1080p, and 4K sources seamlessly in the live production environment. By offering 4K functionality as a standard feature on a range of its products, Snell is building on the commitment it made last year when the company announced that it would offer 1080p functionality at no additional charge in a variety of its products. This move was welcomed by the company’s customer base, which universally applauded the announcement. The company believes a similar proposition for 4K functionality further underscores its commitment to its end-users. 26 | TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 77 MAY 2013 TV-BAY077MAY13.indd 26 02/05/2013 21:18
