NEWS MANAGE & MONITOR Comms Riedel will launch a new MediorNet device at NAB (Booth C4937) that the company promises will add increased flexibility and convenience to its MediorNet real-time network. Riedel will also show the RSP- 2318 Smartpanel, a 1RU control panel designed to serve as a multifunctional user interface that includes three high-resolution, sunlight-readable and multi-touch colour displays as well as stereo audio, a multilingual character set and 18 keys. The RSP-2318 can be further expanded through the use of apps, the fist of which turns the Smartpanel into an intercom panel. Riedel will also show its new TNG-200 ‘Tango’ comms platform, the company’s first network-based platform supporting RAVENNA/ AES67 and AVB standards. The STX-200 interface, which allows Skype calls to be used in a professional environment, will also be on show. Loudness NUGEN Audio will demonstrate its post-production and broadcast loudness products at NAB (Booth C8947) and preview a new upmix tool for broadcast and film production. The Loudness Toolkit 2 is an upgrade of the company’s loudness measurement and correction suite. It includes new versions of the VisLM-H meter with rewritable memory edit mode, the LM-Correct quick-fix tool and the ISL true-peak limiter. A programme loudness over-dub function for enhanced workflow efficiency and a new timecode and loudness profile memory function are also built-in. The Halo Upmixer, being previewed at NAB, is for film and TV production and is capable of producing a Stereo-to-5.1/7.1/9.1 downmix- compatible upmix with optional dialogue isolation in the center channel. It is expected to be available in the second half of 2015. “These new innovations have come from extensive development and consultation with the post-production community,” said Jon Schorah, founder and creative director, NUGEN Audio. Asset management At NAB (Booth C1759) NETIA will showcase Media Assist, a new software suite that allows TV and radio content owners and producers to access, retrieve and share or distribute their digital assets to any platform. Media Assist combines the functionality of NETIA’s radio broadcast automation and media management products with a SQL database to provide a cross-media-production asset management system that includes dedicated tools. Media sharing features in Media Assist enable the publication or export of content or media assets to cross-media platforms and also facilitates the sharing and exchange of content across multiple sites within a broadcast operation. A rich-client platform and a Web-based interface are both available with the latter making it possible for journalists and reporters to work on the move while maintaining their ability to access, search, edit, and repurpose content. Also at NAB, NETIA will highlight the media management, editing, and delivery workflows possible with Media Assist modules designed for mobile devices. 28 | KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 99 MARCH 2015
