NEWS MANAGE & MONITOR Monitors Remote camera systems Ikegami has added two new Grade 1 OLED monitors to its broadcast reference series. The HEM-2570W (25-inch) and HEM-1770WR (17-inch) both feature 12-bit display processing which contributes to true colour reproduction and deep blacks. Both monitors are designed for use as master reference displays in environments such as production facilities, master control rooms, presentation studios and playout suites. The 2570W incorporates a 1920 x 1080 native OLED panel capable of resolving 1 billion colours. Vitec Group’s Camera Corps will demonstrate its compact and remote camera systems at the Wildscreen Film Festival in Bristol later this month (October 19-24). Included will be the Q3 fully controllable remote pan/tilt/zoom/focus head and the MeerCat ultra-compact fi xed camera, both of which were introduced at NAB and are now in production. They will be demoed as part of a complete remotely controlled system that includes ancillary equipment from other Vitec Videocom division fi rms. www.ikegami.de Connectivity www.cameracorps.co.uk Media collaboration Backed by 10 other manufacturers, Sony has launched the Networked Media Interface, a new AV over IP interface that delivers low latency and noise-free switching of HD and 4k video, audio and metadata as part of IP-based networking. The Networked Media Interface packetizes video, audio and metadata, enabling real-time transmission between video-production products via standard network infrastructures. Support comes from Altera Corporation, Cisco, Evertz, Imagine Communications, Juniper Networks, Macnica Americas, Matrox, Rohde & Schwarz DVS, Vizrt and Xilinx. BT’s Media IP Nexus network will now offer Sony Media Cloud Services Ci products, it has been revealed. The joint initiative will enable producers and broadcasters using Ci’s digital workspace, collaboration WorkSessionSM applications, and MediaBoxesSM to collaborate more quickly and effectively across virtual teams. Production workfl ows can also be streamlined working this way by using the Ci cloud-based production suite to collect, exchange, review, and share media fi les in conjunction with BTs Media IP Nexus network, removing the need for expensive hard-copy deliveries and unreliable internet fi le transfers. www.sony.co.uk/pro www.broadcast.bt.com 24 | KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 94 OCTOBER 2014 TV-BAY094OCT14 v118.indd 24 07/10/2014 15:38
