WORLD NEWS New distribution contracts P EC Video Ltd have been appointed official distributor for Tehkron and Kamerar Brands in the UK. Kamerar manufacture a number of innovative and affordable products such as camera cages, shoulder rigs and LCD viewfinders. Tehkron have just released CagePro, the 1st and only GoPro Hero camera cage with a built in high capacity power adapter. PEC says CagePro solves a number of issues for customers wanting to use the GoPro Hero3 in a more professional way. Possibly its greatest feature is that it offers over 5 hours continuous recording on one LPE6 type battery.  www.pec.co.uk Bertie Gregory on Vancouver Island F or more than two years, Bertie Gregory, the nineteen-year-old wildlife videographer from England, shot the fauna on Vancouver Island, Canada. This island, the largest in the Pacific in North America, is not only home to black bears, one of Gregory’s main focuses. Wolves, pumas, and whales can also be found there. The young filmmaker recently finished his almost 16-minute documentary, West Coast Adventure, in which he also narrates and presents about black bears on the island. Since he did not want the bears to feel threatened or scared in their habitat, he shot from a boat with his Nikon D7000. For a firm stand, the wildlife filmmaker depended upon the lightweight and robust Ace M tripod system by Sachtler. www.sachtler.com Updating true-peak limiter N UGEN Audio, creator of intuitive tools for audio professionals, has announced the release of a significant update to ISL, its inter-sample true-peak limiter. In response to high customer demand from the film and game sectors, ISL is now available in a 7.1 surround channel configuration and adds the ability to limit true-peak audio according to the Apple Mastered for iTunes methodology.  ISL is part of NUGEN Audio’s range of innovative and intuitive loudness correction tools, which includes VisLM and LM-Correct. Providing complete control over peak levels in audio signals now from mono to 7.1, ISL measures inter-sample peaks and allows users to set the true-peak limit rather than the traditional threshold at which limiting begins. By measuring and correcting for inter-sample levels, ISL protects against distortion that can be introduced when codecs such as MP3 and AAC are applied downstream. With the new release, ISL’s true-peak detection algorithm now enables accurate assessment of audio and preparation of cleaner compressed files for Apple’s all-important iTunes® channel.  www.nugenaudio.com 18 | TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 83 NOVEMBER 2013
