Blackmagic Design Announces DaVinci Resolve 16.1

Blackmagic Design Announces DaVinci Resolve 16.1
Blackmagic Design today announced DaVinci Resolve 16.1, a new update to the company’s popular edit, color, visual effects and audio post production software that includes major updates to the new cut page to help create the world’s fastest editor.
DaVinci Resolve 16.1 public beta is available for download now from the Blackmagic Design website.
While Blackmagic Design is announcing the final release of DaVinci Resolve 16.0, we are also introducing a new public beta of DaVinci Resolve 16.1 that has innovative new features. This new public beta will let us continue to develop new ideas but also collaborate with customers to ensure they are refined in the correct way to work in the real world.
As the large film studios that use DaVinci Resolve for most of the world’s feature films need to get their systems updated before the next programming season starts, this new public beta lets Blackmagic Design continue to develop new ideas without causing delays for the large studios who need a finished and well tested release of DaVinci Resolve. The new features are focused mostly on the new cut page, which we are continuing to work on in our goal to make it the world’s fastest editor. Our goal is to allow customers to dramatically decrease the total turn around time for complex work.
Changes in the bin now allow customers to place media in various folders and isolate clips from being used when viewing clips in the source tape, sync bin or sync window. Clips will be seen in all folders below the current level and as customers navigate around the levels in the bin, the source tape will reconfigure in real time. There's even a menu for directly selecting folders in a customer’s project.
An exciting feature to be added in this public beta is the new Smart Indicator. The new cut page in DaVinci Resolve 16 introduced multiple new smart features, which work by estimating where the editor wants to add an edit or transition and then allowing it to be applied without the wasted time of placing in and out points on the exact locations of the clips.
This is fast because the software guesses what the editor wants to do and just does it by adding the inset edit, or adding a transition to the edit closest to where the editor has placed the CTI. The problem is in complex edits, where it is hard to know what the software would do and which edit it would place the effect or clip into. This is where the new smart indicator provides a small marker in the timeline so customers get constant feedback on where DaVinci Resolve will place edits and transitions. The new smart indicator constantly live updates as the editor moves around the timeline.
One of the most common feedback items requested was a faster way to cut clips in the timeline, and now DaVinci Resolve 16.1 includes a cut clip icon in the user interface and simply clicking on it will slice the clips in the timeline at the CTI point. This is incredibly fast to use as with one button click, the clips are cut immediately.
Multiple changes have also been made to the new DaVinci Resolve Editor Keyboard, including a new adaptive scroll feature on the search dial, which will slow down a job when editors are hunting for an in point, all automatically. The live trimming buttons have been renamed to the same labels as the functions in the edit page, and they have been changed to trim in, trim out, transition duration, slip in and slip out. The function keys along the top of the keyboard have now been taken and used for various editing functions.
There are additional edit models on the function keys allowing more types of editing directly accessed from dedicated keys on the keyboard. There's also a new transition window that uses the F4 key and pressing and rotating the search dial allows instant selection from all the transition types in DaVinci Resolve. Customers who need quick picture in picture effects can use F5 and apply them instantly.
Sometimes when editing shows with tight deadlines there is little time to continuously play the edit to see where the edit gets a bit boring. DaVinci Resolve 16.1 introduces a new Boring Detector that allows the whole timeline to be highlighted where any shot is too long and would be boring for a viewer to watch. The boring detector can also show jump cuts where shots are too short as well. The analysis is constantly showing which parts of the timeline are boring so as editors work and add shots to their edit, they can see the remaining parts of the edit which are considered boring. The boring detector is great when using the source tape, as editors can perform a lot of edits without playing the timeline, so the boring detector will be an alternative live source of feedback.
One of the most powerful features of DaVinci Resolve 16.1 is the new sync bin. The sync bin is a digital assistant editor whicho constantly sorts through thousands of clips and finds only the clips customers need and displays them synced to the point in the timeline customers are on.
The sync bin will show the clips from the cameras on a shoot all stacked by camera number and the viewer will transform into a multi view so customers can see what options customers have for clips that sync to the shot in the timeline. The sync bin uses date and timecode to find and sync clips, and simply by using metadata and locking cameras to time of day, customers can save time in the edit.
The sync bin completely changes how multi camera editing can be completed. Just scroll along the timeline and the sync bin will display only shots that are related to the timeline clips. Customers can even scroll off the end of the timeline and keep adding shots. When using the DaVinci Resolve Editor Keyboard, customers can simply hold the camera number and rotate the search dial to "live overwrite" the clip into the timeline, making editing even faster.
The close up edit feature has now been enhanced in DaVinci Resolve 16.1 and it now does face detection and analysis and will zoom the shot based on positioning the face of the person nicely framed.
If customers are using shots from cameras without timecode then the new sync window lets them sort and sync clips from multiple cameras. The sync window supports sync by timecode and it can also detect audio and sync clips by sound. All clips that have been synced will display a sync icon in the media pool so customers can tell which clips are synced and ready for use. Manually syncing clips using the new sync window allows workflows such as multiple action cameras to use new features such as source overwrite editing and the new sync bin.
"We are excited about this update as it has more new features that bring a totally new way to solve complex editing problems," said Grant Petty, Blackmagic Design CEO. "These new features have never been done before and we are trying new ideas that we have developed in collaboration with our customers. It's very exciting to be doing things that are totally new and never been tried before!"

Dejero Wins Second Prestigious Technology and Engineering Emmy Award Posted: 21/01/2020
Dejero Wins Second Prestigious Technology and Engineering Emmy Award

Globally recognized award underlines how Dejero exponentially improves flexibility in location coverage for newsgathering and live events crews

Dejero, an innovator in cloud-managed solutions that provide award-winning video transport and Internet connectivity while mobile or in remote locations, has been awarded a second prestigious Technology and Engineering Emmy® Award. The award, in the category of Video over Bonded Cellular Internet (VoCIP) technology, recognizes Dejero’s innovation in the industry, thanks to its Smart Blending Technology and unique hybrid encoding approach.

Headquartered in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, Dejero has perfected its patented and patent-pending Smart Blending and hybrid encoding technologies over the course of the last decade. The technologies work in concert to form a tightly integrated system which responds in real time to changes in network quality and video content. This has helped transform how broadcasters contribute live content from the field using cellular networks, providing newsgathering crews with greater flexibility in terms of the location from where they can transmit a live shot, at a fraction of the cost of conventional uplink technology.

“We are thrilled to win not just one Emmy® – the most recognized broadcast award in the world – but two,” said Bogdan Frusina, founder of Dejero. "Last year the committee rewarded our decade of innovation for pioneering reliable transmission methods that enable live contribution and distribution of TV signals over the public Internet. This year they have gone on to further recognize our industry-leading technologies, showing that our continuous development is raising the quality and reliability standards of mobile video and data transmission.”

Masstech launches new Adobe Premiere Pro panel for Kumulate

Adobe Premiere Pro users can now access the powerful functionality of Masstech’s intelligent storage, workflow and lifecycle management solution, Kumulate, from directly within Premiere Pro via an intuitive panel.

The Adobe panel can be quickly and easily added to any Kumulate system with minimal configuration (individual editing stations don’t need to be added as locations in the system). Storage movement and workflow tools are then presented as a plug-in within Adobe Premiere Pro, allowing users to access their entire inventory across any type of online or deeper storage tier, including cloud, local disk, optical disk, and LTO.

All assets on all storage tiers are searchable to Premiere Pro users from within the new panel, using intuitive search criteria including structured, unstructured, and time-based metadata. These powerful tools allow users to quickly access their content libraries from within Adobe Premiere Pro, dramatically speeding up workflows.

Carlos Rodgarman Adds Prestige To His Studio By Installing A Genesys Black Posted: 20/01/2020
Carlos Rodgarman Adds Prestige To His Studio By Installing A Genesys Black

Los Angeles based producer and composer Carlos Rodgarman has installed an AMS Neve Genesys Black console in is private studio in Los Angeles.

Within months of installing the G16 desk, Rodgarman was so impressed by its power, flexibility and the way it streamlined his workflow that he upgraded to a G48 by adding a 16 channel expansion module. He also took the opportunity install the Neve GenesysControl Plugin and Neve 88R EQ hardware.

“To say I am blown away by this console is an understatement,” Rodgarman says. “The combination of Genesys Black and GenesysControl has completely revolutionised the way I work. I get all the benefits of Neve’s fabulous analogue EQ and dynamics without having to sacrifice any of the convenience of working ‘in the box’. It is transformative – just saying I have a Neve console is impressive because my clients understand the brand’s audio quality and pedigree.”

Originally from Spain, Rodgarman moved to America 18 years ago to pursue a career as a musician. As a talented pianist, he worked with many artists including Celine Dion, All-4-One, Prince Royce, Jonathan Butler, Sheila E, La India and many more. He is also in demand as a producer, arranger, musical director and programmer and now spends most of his time in the studio, where he has worked with artists such as Juan Gabriel, Beto Cuevas, Jenni Rivera, producer Humberto Gatica, Laura Bretan, Cristian Castro, Isabel Pantoja, Antonio Carmona and Oskar Cartaya, whose latest project was nominated for a Latin Grammy. Composing music for advertising agencies with partner David Weisberg and film and television projects is also slotted in around his music clients and his own projects, which he releases under the name of The RodgarBand.

Leeds Trinity University chooses Quicklink TX for Yorkshire Voice Posted: 20/01/2020
Leeds Trinity University chooses Quicklink TX for Yorkshire Voice

Leeds Trinity University, a university renowned for teaching excellence in television and radio, have adopted the Quicklink TX to introduce guests into their Yorkshire Voice show.

The Yorkshire Voice is a local live news show produced by Journalism students at Leeds Trinity University which is broadcast live across the University’s social media platforms and website.

At the University’s studio, the Quicklink TX is set up next to the vision mixer station. A production team member is assigned to contacting and managing the guest contributors using the Quicklink and Skype TX Controller. The SDI output from the Quicklink TX is fed into the mixer and then into the studio screen and live output.

“The Quicklink TX has enabled our Journalism students to introduce live remote contributors without the need for them to always come to the studio itself for a short interview. The solution allows our BJTC MA Journalism students to replicate remote live feeds as seen on professional broadcast productions.” Mark Willett, Senior Media Technician at Leeds Trinity University.

Mark continues “The Quicklink TX not only supplements our remote live streaming location camera but enables Journalism students in the field using a phone with Skype to provide live remote coverage”.

As part of its participation in the alliance, Intinor has added support for SRT’s “Listener” delivery mode, soon to be followed by SRT’s “Caller” and “Rendezvous” mode to the entire Intinor Direkt Router range. Intinor has also used the opportunity to add support for NDI® connectivity.

Intinor CEO Roland Axelsson said, “The industry has embraced SRT, which has proven to be a truly collaborative and beneficial way of working together to establish a streaming protocol that mitigates or resolves issues that still surround video transport latency without having to resort to resourcing expensive alternatives.

Bannister Lake Integrates MPEG-DASH Streaming Protocol Into Chameleon Data Aggregation Workflow

Bannister Lake announced today that MPEG dynamic adaptive streaming over HTTP (DASH) video content is now fully supported through its flagship Chameleon data management product.

RUSHWORKS introduces REMO NDI Portable Touchscreen PTZ Production System

RUSHWORKS, provider of cool technology for production, playback and streaming since 2001, enters the market with a bang for 2020, introducing another “powerfully simple” integrated PTZ production system for remote and studio operation.

“It’s truly astounding what technology is serving up” says Rush Beesley, RUSHWORKS president. REMO NDI incorporates a touch screen computer with super-fast processing, providing a small footprint system with enormous capabilities that marry well with RUSHWORKS mature production and camera control technology.

“NDI connectivity has transformed traditional wiring requirements into a few CAT5 cables that carry video, audio, PTZ camera protocols and power”, Beesley says. “We put more power and functionality into a couple of rugged Pelican cases than you’ll find in most OB (Outside Broadcast) vans … at a fraction of the size, cost and operational complexity.”

The standard REMO NDI system is powered by an All-In-One computer with 24” touchscreen and blazing fast i9 processor operating on Windows 10 Pro with 1TB SSD storage. It includes the RUSHWORKS custom shortcut keyboard, six-button Hall-effect joystick, an eight-port PoE GigE switch, and two (2) NDI PTZ cameras with 30x optical zoom lenses. It all fits in two ruggedized traveling containers with wheels and extendable handle.
