-Ball remotely controlled pan/tilt/zoom
equipment from Camera Corps greeted
visitors to the John Lennon Educational Tour
Bus throughout IBC2013. In continuous
demonstration adjacent to the entrance, the
Q-Ball gave visitors immediate experience
of the high-efficiency ultra-modern systems
deployed throughout the truck.
Like its sister vehicle in the US, the Lennon
Bus is staffed by a crew of three producer/
engineers. Its schedule encompasses stops
at local schools, colleges and festivals,
providing free tours and workshops in which
young people produce original songs, audio
recordings, broadcast quality music videos
and live streamed events.
layBox Technology announced
at IBC2013 the completion of a
major upgrade to the playout facilities
at the studios of Hong Kong’s largest
independent broadcaster, Television
Broadcasts Ltd (TVB). The project,
which also included customer
training, was completed together
with the engineering team from
Mediatech (International) Ltd, the
local PlayBox Technology partner,
and was finalized with the installation
of 26 servers at the network’s
headquarters in TVB City, Kowloon.
The installation encompassed nine
high definition 24/7 channels. Seven
of them are already on air and the
others are in precommission testing.
European introduction of S-Log2 option
L eader Instruments chose the 2013 IBC show for the European launch of a major
enhancement to its LV5330 video production monitor and LV5380 video multi-SDI
signal analyser. Leader is adding support for the S-Log gamma correction system
used in Sony’s F65 digital cinematography camera.
“High-specification cameras such as the Sony F65 employ S-Log2 or similar gamma
responses to extend the dynamic range of cameras almost to that of film while
retaining the ease of use and flexibility of using a digital medium,” explains George
Gonos, President of Leader Instruments Corporation. “Dynamic range is substantially
improved and pixel count is hugely increased, requiring extremely accurate focus
adjustment. With this new monitoring feature, the LV5330 and LV5380 are fully
capable of emulating an S-Log display over the entire dynamic range.
