NEWS MANAGE & MONITOR Monitoring A smaller, rack-mountable version of Video Clarity’s RTM 3G real-time monitoring device will be on show at IBC. The RTM 3G Portable is a 2-RU version that, like the original, can be used to scrutinise the quality of live and pre-recorded 3Gbps content and detect subtle or intermittent errors. To make it smaller and improve reliability, the Portable incorporates SSD technology. Using it, engineers can test the quality of any delivered service they deploy from either a broadcast interface or an IP network. “We’re passionate about making broadcasters’ jobs easier, and that passion will be our focus at IBC this year,” said Blake Homan, founder of Video Clarity. Broadcast control and monitoring Axon Digital Design will showcase its latest 4K products and highlight the success of Cerebrum, the broadcast control and monitoring software, at IBC (Stand 10.A21/B21).   With IP and the next generation of standards a critical industry focus, Axon will also use the event to discuss its work in S2022 and deliver a proof of concept to demonstrate an Ethernet AVB backbone working effectively in a production environment. Cerebrum is a customizable control and monitoring system for mobile production, news and studio live production, master control and remote production. It allows for multi device monitoring and control in a single interface and supports a wide range of devices from different manufacturers 22 | KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 104 AUGUST 2015 T&M Murraypro will unveil two exciting new products at IBC in Hall 8. Their popular Test Chest receives a make over, and now gains the capability of interfacing directly with HDMI display ports on external devices. “We have been aware that Installers and System Integrators have been seeking an additional A+V mode that would extend testing capability to PC display ports. With this in mind, our Design Team has redesigned Test Chest 3G’s present SDI Input and Output interfacing to embrace digital PC and Display port capability too. The all important base band analogue capability has not been sacrificed, as it is absolutely vital for swiftly resolving Reference Sync and Composite Video issues. Our new Model has combined all these desirable features in a single, compact unit”, said Murraypro CEO Tony Drummond-Murray. Many of Test Chest’s other features have been enhanced, including the performance of our unique TDR cable testing Utility. Now, for example, the performance of installed coaxial cables up to 180M may be investigated even more thoroughly, as additional display gain is available to identify subtle return loss issues. Murraypro have managed to maintain the same Test Chest case profile, whilst squeezing in these extra features, the result is an identically sized and priced product. Murraypro also announce “Jitter Mon”, a compact Unit less than 200 mm wide and 88 mm high that monitors the overall jitter performance of an outgoing SDI feed to ensure conformance with System specifications. These products will be demonstrated in a working environment at IBC, on the Murraypro stand B:38G in Hall 8.
