Argosy Strengthens Commitment to Middle East Market with Opening of New Stock Facility

Argosy, a leading international supplier of broadcast cables and infrastructure products, has announced that it has relocated its Dubai office to the city’s Oudmetha area in order to hold more stock and deliver faster and more efficient services to its Middle East customers. The larger facility enables Argosy to locally stock higher volumes of its expanding product portfolio, such as racking and mains distribution units, video audio and data cabling, connectors and patching, SMPTE and fibre assembly equipment, along with KVM and network switches.

"We’re very positive about the growth potential of the Middle East market," said Chris Smeeton, director at Argosy. "Countries like Oman, Bahrain and Lebanon have seen a recent growth in the sports sector meaning more stadia and arenas have been built for boxing, football and tennis tournaments. This in turn has increased the need to produce local content so we are positioning ourselves to be able to deliver orders quickly and provide immediate assistance for such projects through our new regional office in Dubai."
Headed by regional sales manager Raziullah Baig and supported by Argosy's sales, technical and logistics teams back at its UK-based HQ, the new Dubai office brings relevant and critical stock back into the region, offering Argosy clients reduced lead times and a facility to supply to ongoing projects where specific products may be urgently required.
"The beauty of holding more stock in the region is that our clients can begin their projects earlier, starting with the readily-available products we stock in Dubai whilst the rest of their order ships from the UK," explained Baig.
As the Middle East moves towards 4K, Argosy's new partnerships with Mellanox Technologies, Canare, Allied Telesis, BarnFind, kvm-tec and other world class suppliers, will prove indispensable to the region’s content producers and broadcasters as they implement their 4K technology upgrades.
On top of its cable and infrastructure lines, Argosy also offers a range of active hardware, from intelligent power supplies to managed switches for high-capacity IP or 12G SDI.
The Canare range of 4K Ultra HD SDI cables, connectors and patch panels were shown for the first time at IBC2019, as were the Allied Telesis range of expandable, stackable, automated ethernet switches that provide the deterministic control media installations require.
Another newcomer to the Argosy catalogue is Mellanox Technologies. Its SN2010 switch, for example, is an ideal top of rack (ToR) solution for hyperconverged and storage deployments. Packed with 18 ports of 10/25GbE and 4 splittable ports of 40/100GbE, the SN2010 can deliver up to 1.7Tb/s aggregate throughput. Mellanox’s leading IP-based technologies enrich the video experience and bring the audience and content closer together.
For versatile fibre transport, Argosy supplies Barnfind’s range of fibre adaptors which allow designers to quickly create complex infrastructures – enabling data streams such as lighting control to be routed alongside audio and video.
To declutter control desks and make post houses more productive, the low-latency, 4K-ready keyboard/video/mouse technology from kvm-tec delivers high availability convenience.
"Our clients appreciate our ambition to react quickly to local market demand, provide the highest quality of products and offer a first-class service. We give them access to a huge range of reliable solutions to help minimize their procurement and logistics operations and save them a lot stress when it comes to delivering time sensitive projects. The new office makes this even more efficient," concluded Baig.

Network 10 Selects AWS Media Services For Richer Content Posted: 19/11/2019
Network 10 Selects AWS Media Services For Richer Content

Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an Amazon.com company, today announced that Network 10, one of Australia’s largest television networks, has selected AWS Media Services to support its video transport structure for remote production in South Africa for its upcoming season of the reality TV series I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here, and to enhance the streaming delivery for live-streamed sports and Network 10 shows, including The BachelorAustralian Survivor, and MasterChef Australia.

Network 10 is one of the first companies in Australia to use AWS Elemental MediaConnect, a cloud video transfer service, which provides secure and reliable delivery of live video content. The technology enabled Network 10 to transport video from Kruger National Park in South Africa to its Sydney-based production studio for I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here during the 2019 season, and will be used again in the upcoming seventh season.

Using a combination of AWS Elemental MediaConnect and AWS Advanced APN Technology Partner, Aspera’s High Speed Transfer Service, Network 10 reduced its production turn around window from overnight to less than two hours, and in some cases, only a few minutes.

Viaccess-Orca to Host Webinar on Cutting-Edge Anti-Piracy Strategies Posted: 18/11/2019
Viaccess-Orca to Host Webinar on Cutting-Edge Anti-Piracy Strategies

Viaccess-Orca (VO), a global leader providing OTT and TV platforms, content protection, and advanced data solutions, announced today a new webinar titled, "Defining and Executing a Piracy Management Strategy Through Cutting-Edge Technologies and Services."

Ignoring piracy is not an option: the need for an efficient and personalized anti-piracy strategy is critical.

Nov. 26, 3:00 p.m. GMT --  register at http://bit.ly/37lP8Vh.

• Content piracy has evolved over the last few years with the democratization of IP-based video delivery.

• Pirates have found ways to bypass traditional content protection technologies, redistribute, and monetize pirated content.

• Broadcasters and service providers face immense pressure to increase subscribers, ensure revenues, avoid churn, protect their brand reputation, and comply with rights-holders' content-protection requirements.

• Licensing pictures or events on an exclusive basis has proven to be increasingly challenging for rights holders due to rampant piracy.

By relying on experts and specialized tools — such as dynamic watermarking, DRM, breach detection, and password-sharing identification — service providers can anticipate piracy risks, instantly identify the source of piracy, and take counteractions. The webinar will discuss why media companies should build a piracy-management strategy and how it can be supported by VO, a leader in content protection technologies.

NRL implement Quicklink Studio and Studio-in-a-box to optimise content offering Posted: 18/11/2019
NRL implement Quicklink Studio and Studio-in-a-box to optimise content offering

Earlier this year, National Rugby League (NRL) turned to Quicklink in order to improve and optimise their content offering and production operations. NRL’s webcasts both on their official website NRL.com and on the NRL app have driven digital audience engagement to new heights in 2019.

NRL implemented the Studio Browser into their workflow for HD quality, bi-directional audio/video contributions. The Studio Browser solution enables NRL to very easily introduce players and coaches via a simple web browser to their Studio for interviews on their ‘Inside NRL’ weekly feature and other studio shows.

The Studio-in-a-box was also implemented at NRL’s head office for the weekly football briefing press conferences. The portable, all-in-one solution has made it very easy for NRL to deploy and is fully remote-controllable from the Quicklink Manager at their Studio control room.

“The Studio-in-a-box is a compact unit with simple inputs/outputs that has made it easy for us to set up almost anywhere. We have been able to facilitate a regular production operation with this technology that was not on our original radar when we procured the technology and it’s been easy collaborating with Quicklink to validate things when required” says Alex Agaciak, NRL Media Services team.

A+E Networks EMEA engages Arqiva to deliver on-demand Content to Amazon Prime Posted: 15/11/2019
A+E Networks and reg; EMEA engages Arqiva to deliver on-demand Content to Amazon Prime

Arqiva, the international satellite and media services provider, has been selected by the international television company A+E Networks EMEA to provide on-demand content for the channel’s Amazon Prime on demand service in Germany and UK.

A+E Networks® EMEA, has been an Arqiva customer for over a decade, with the existing partnership spanning playout and connectivity across Africa and the Middle East, UK DTH satellite capacity and on-premise VoD processing services across EMEA (including the UK). As part of the new contract, Arqiva will manage the content processing, packaging and delivery of A+E Networks EMEA existing archive content in both UK and Germany, from where it is currently stored on Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and Amazon Simple Storage Service Glacier, to Amazon Prime.

One of A+E Networks EMEA’s key requirements was for the solution to be able to process all VoD requests as close to the cloud-based archive as possible in order to minimise content movement and therefore avoid costly cloud egress into on-premise data centres. Based on its latest hybrid on-premise/cloud offering, the solution implemented by Arqiva is the first to feature a completely cloud-contained journey, where content is taken from the online archive, processed packaged and delivered to Amazon Prime. This not only ensures significant cost-savings but transcoding in the cloud using AWS Elemental MediaConvert also enables Arqiva to process more simultaneous jobs at a far quicker pace.

Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Shoots Rare Show Content for Mumford and amp; Sons Posted: 15/11/2019
Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Shoots Rare Show Content for Mumford and amp; Sons

Blackmagic Design today announced that award winning live director, Steve Price, used the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K to create a cinematic, slow motion backdrop for Mumford & Sons’ recent appearance at the iHeart Radio music festival in Las Vegas.

Although the rise of LED technology has seen screens become an essential creative element of concert and festival productions, some artists, including the British indie folk band, prefer the focus to be on the live performance, with some clever staging and lighting to help lead the atmosphere.

With two weeks to go till the band were due to headline the festival, where the stage was almost entirely built from LEDs, a new approach was critical. “Other acts on the bill included Miley Cyrus, Alicia Keys, Def Leppard and Chance the Rapper, so it was important to stand out visually and create a unique identity for the set given the diverse lineup,” begins Steve.

“We decided to keep things simple with a classically beautiful ‘analogue’ aesthetic, with some slow motion, based around nature and people,” he reveals. “Time was tight as we were also in the midst of a US tour, and I needed to get back to the UK to pick up kit.

“I needed a camera that was capable of 120fps, that also wasn’t too bulky for a one-man shoot. That brought me to the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K which allowed me to travel as light as possible, while still being able to produce the stunning image that I like in Blackmagic’s larger cameras.”

ATG Danmon Completes News Studio Systems for Cardiff Universitys School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies Posted: 14/11/2019
ATG Danmon Completes News Studio Systems for Cardiff Universitys School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies

ATG Danmon announces the completion of a full broadcast-quality news studio facility for Cardiff University's School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies. The project coincides with a relocation to new city-centre premises situated next to BBC facilities. Cardiff University will use the facility to train the next generation of television, radio, online and printed-media journalists. Herefordshire based CJP Broadcast Service Solutionsprovided the installation services for the project.

 

"We were invited to propose a turnkey solution based on an outline specification provided by the university," explains ATG Danmon Managing Director Russell Peirson-Hagger. "The project comprised a large TV studio and dedicated gallery, a smaller TV studio with its associated gallery, plus a broadcast newsroom. Both galleries connect via SDI to Vizrt media, graphics and automation. Avid iNEWS is also integrated."

 

"The system links to a news presentation suite where a remotely controlled camera and two-way video feed allow the newsreader to talk to a newsroom reporter. The systems simulate the functionality and processes of a real broadcast environment, the output being used for academic review."

 

 

"We worked in partnership with CJP and Cardiff University staff to design and integrate a complete solution that kept within the budget and provided the specified level of functionality that is required by the teaching staff. This was successfully achieved before students returned after the summer recess.

DPP launches industry-wide sustainability initiative Posted: 14/11/2019
DPP launches industry-wide sustainability initiative

The DPP Committed to Sustainability Programme provides a self-assessment checklist that enables companies to record their progress in implementing sustainability policies, and awards them a score out of five. Completion of the assessment entitles a company to display the Committed to Sustainability mark, and to publicise their engagement with the Programme.

The score is private to the company concerned, but it can be used in procurement submissions, in marketing, and as a motivating force for further improvement. The DPP will monitor the average score for the media industry as a whole, and report regularly on the sector’s progress.

The Programme is available to all companies, free of charge, irrespective of whether they are a member of the DPP.

“We all have an obligation to take action to address the climate emergency.” says DPP Managing Director, Mark Harrison, “This programme creates a simple and effective means for all media companies to ensure they understand how they can minimise their environmental impact - and record their progress.”

The Committed to Sustainability Programme is enabled by DPP member company Atos, which, along with other members, shared its own expertise to help the DPP shape the new scheme.
