NEWS CAPTURE & PRODUCE Stand P11 Prompting NewTek will show the latest versions of its TriCaster and 3Play products at BVE 2015 (Stand G20) alongside the portable TriCaster Mini and the new TalkShow VS-100, a video calling production system designed for TV studios and live video producers. TalkShow works with Skype to allow users to route live video calls to the control room like any other video source and adjust the visual and audio quality of each call. The 1RU unit offers dual channel Ethernet connectivity and two channels of HD- SDI I/O that includes reference signal and support for professional XLR audio and Tally. The TriCaster Mini is for non-technical users that want to assemble visually sophisticated multimedia presentations and stream them live, publish them to social media or upload them to a website from any location with an Internet connection. Also at BVE NewTek is running a contest to win a complete live production suite worth over £6000, featuring a TriCaster Mini and two JVC cameras. CueScript, the provider of creative teleprompting hardware and software solutions, with innovative feature-rich designs for all broadcast productions, is celebrating a successful first year of business. Since its NAB 2014 launch, the company’s founders, Michael Accardi, Peter Carey and Brian Larter, have expanded their teams in the U.K. and U.S., to support the growing demand of its customers, located across the globe. The CueScript system has been seen in use at BBC Sports’ Personality of the Year, Broadcast Young Talent Awards and various other productions in the U.K. To continue the company’s mission, to meet and exceed the expectations of its customers, the U.K. operation now offers daily rentals as dry hire or with an operator, to provide broadcast professionals with its prompting solutions. The company will continue to expand in 2015, with the introduction of additional innovative products to be released to the prompting market. www.newtek.com www.cuescript.tv Stand G20 Live production Datavideo Technologies will launch two new low-cost HD production switchers at BVE 2015 (Stand K30) that give producers the ability to deliver live graphics and titles straight from a laptop. The SE-2200 and HS-2200 can be connected to any Windows laptop with an HDMI output. Datavideo CG software can then be used to generate and play out real-time motion titles and broadcast graphics, negating the need for an SDI interface card and high spec workstation. Allan Leonhardsen, own of UK Datavideo distributor Holdan, said: “These switchers are designed to be portable, ready for use on location. This would normally mean that producers had to rely on titles stored in memory or pre-prepared in presentation software. With the new 2200 range, Datavideo users can use a laptop to make and amend titles on the fly, giving the audience real-time information, whether its live scores or breaking news.” The switchers are available either as a vision mixer with traditional console (SE-2200) or with an integrated built-in 17 multi-viewer monitor (HS-2200). Each model is based on a 6 HD-SDI input design, complete with HDMI connectivity and includes a full range of wipes, effects and transition, multi-viewer monitoring, 4 HD outputs and balanced XLR inputs.
