WORLD NEWS Starring at One World Open House L eader Instruments recently demonstrated its range of test and measurement products to broadcasters and digital filmmakers attending Band Pro’s One World Open House 2013 at Band Pro’s Burbank headquarters. Held annually, One World Open House features the best new electronic and cine media technology from over 30 of the top manufacturers in a dynamic interactive content production environment. Centerpiece of the Leader exhibit was the LV5490 SD/ HD/4k multi-format multi-display picture and signal monitor. Launched at NAB 2013 and now deliverable, this supports the full range of standard video production and transmission resolutions from 525 and 625 standard definition up to 3840 x 2160 and 4096 x 2160 4k. Equipped with four 3G-SDI/HD-SDI/SD-SDI input channels plus a high-quality wide-viewing-angle 1920 x 1080 9 inch flat-panel display, the LV5490 allows precise matching of studio or outside broadcast cameras. It also doubles as a picture monitor for production crews working on location. The LV5490 can be used in a very wide selection of test and measurement roles. These include waveform, vector and picture monitoring, SDI signal data analysis, cyclic- redundancy-check error, embedded-audio error, event log, data dump and timing display. Leader’s CINELITE® II toolset also comes as a standard feature, allowing easy assessment of relative exposure and overall luminance. UK Sales: Powering new multiscreen platform A nevia, a leader in video streaming and infrastructure solutions for OTT, live TV and Video on Demand (VoD), have announced that French public national TV broadcaster France Televisions chose ViaMotion to power its new multiscreen platform. Francetv Pluzz is a highly popular TV portal in France, where five premium channels (France 2, France 3, France 4, France 5 and France) and nine overseas channels content can be viewed and shared on demand. The strategic importance of managing this platform in-house due to time-to- market and technology control purposes led France Televisions to select the ViaMotion Plus from Anevia. ViaMotions flexible architecture was a clear driver behind the public broadcasters decision as it allows them to gain full control over operations and contents internally while easily supporting their multi- CDN ecosystem.
