NUGEN Audio Unveils SEQ-S Software Update at NAMM 2020 Posted: 13/01/2020
NUGEN Audio Unveils SEQ-S Software Update at NAMM 2020

NUGEN Audio is pleased to announce the latest software release for its SEQ-S linear phase ‘spline match and morph’ EQ solution at the 2020 NAMM Show (Booth 14101). Now with a resizeable direct-draw interface and EQ matching presets, SEQ-S features a surround capability of up to 7.1, making it easy to fine-tune audio. Ideal for both corrective mix work and gentle mastering polish, SEQ-S is perfect for movie, television and music productions. 

“We are very excited to showcase the latest updates to NUGEN’s SEQ-S for the first time ever at the 2020 NAMM Show,” says Paul Tapper, CEO, NUGEN Audio. “Our engineering team has worked diligently over the past year to provide significant product updates and developments, and we’re sure that current and future customers will love the latest additions. SEQ-S delivers creative EQ power in a way that no other solution provides. It allows you to massage and correct any audio with incredible resolution that you just can’t get with a traditional parametric interface – allowing imaginations to run free.”

SEQ-S’ intuitive visual interface adapts to suit the task at hand, whether simple or sophisticated. Using this solution, producers can fine-tune their tracks with flexible, detailed envelopes that are difficult to achieve with traditional EQ. The new preset system for EQ matching enables producers to expedite their workflow by streamlining the match EQ process, this feature allows them to push their sound toward reference material or take a deeper creative approach with filter morphing and tempo locked effects. Additionally, the system’s newly implemented, resizeable interface offers further flexibility for users to set up SEQ-S for their precise workflow needs, allowing for more detailed curve sculpting, among other things.

NEP Hilversum Chooses Custom Consoles Control Desks and MediaWall for New MCR Suite Posted: 13/01/2020
NEP Hilversum Chooses Custom Consoles Control Desks and MediaWall for New MCR Suite

Custom Consoles announces the completion and installation of eight control desks and a large MediaWall monitor display support system for NEP Media Solutions BV. Located in the master control room at the company's studios in Hilversum's Media Park, the desks are configured in front and rear rows for use by up to six and four operators respectively.

 

"The desks are similar in style and colour scheme to a suite we produced in early 2018 for another NEP television studio facility," says Custom Consoles' Sales Manager Gary Fuller. "The forward desk centres on a dual-operator bridge with a total of eight forward-sloping 4U equipment pods. This is constructed as a rectangular unit with space for two operators. Left and right of the bridge are two units of identical design to the bridge but angled to match the curve of the 13.9 metre wide six-frame MediaWall."

"The MediaWall itself is one of the largest we have produced to date, each of the six frames accommodating four 55 inch UHD displays to create an 11-wide by two-high screen array with two additional pairs of 32 inch screens positioned to form vertical columns immediately left and right of the front-centre bridge desk. The result is a very elegant solution which can justifiably be termed state-of-the-art."

RUSHWORKS introduces RUSHPROMPTER: Powerfully Simple teleprompting software Posted: 12/12/2019
RUSHWORKS introduces RUSHPROMPTER: and ldquo;Powerfully Simple and rdquo; teleprompting software

RUSHWORKS, provider of cool technology for production, playback and streaming since 2001, today announced the release of RUSHPROMPTER™, a Windows-based teleprompting software solution available as a stand-alone download from its website, or integrated with VNEWS, the company’s TV NEWS PRODUCTION hardware/software system. Rush Beesley, RUSHWORKS founder and president, revealed details of the launch from company headquarters in Flower Mound, Texas.

“There are a lot of prompter systems out there,” says Beesley, “but we wanted to create one with a design driven by our company Mission: Keeping It Super Simple. KISS.” Having created production, editing and animation systems since the early 70s, Beesley has a lot of experience with teleprompting.

“Most people don’t realize that what we call ‘teleprompting’ was first done using long rolls of white paper on which people either hand-wrote the text or used giant typewriters developed specifically for creating extra-large type. Someone just cranked the paper under a black and white camera which displayed on a TV monitor,’ he reflected. “It was simple, but effective.”

RUSHPROMPTER keeps it simple but effective by including the basic features people want and need for script creation and prompting. In Beesley’s words, “No more. No less.” These include RTF and TXT creation, export and import, find and replace, real-time font size adjustment, variable line spacing, and individual character control of bold, italics, underline, colorize, and highlighting.

TV3 Catalonia Upgrades to HD-HDR Production with Leader LV7300 Posted: 12/12/2019
TV3 Catalonia Upgrades to HD-HDR Production with Leader LV7300

Catalonia's public broadcaster Catalan Audiovisual Media Corporation (Corporació Catalana de Mitjans Audiovisuals or CCMA) has chosen Leader's LV7300 rasterizer as the master reference instrument as part of an upgrade to HD-HDR at its Audiovisual Production Centre in Barcelona. The CCMA's primary channel is TV3 Catalonia which is transmitted to viewers in Catalonia, Andorra and the Balearic Islands.

Supplied by Leader distribution partner SetUp Electrónica, the LV7300 will be used to check video and audio signal quality in a newly equipped studio equipped to support 4K, HD and super slow motion. The studio's primary role will be to create high quality HD-HDR content.

"Sourcing from 4K-native Sony cameras with  IP connectivity and ITU-R BT 2020 color gamut will allow us to capture images with very rich colors, greater than ever contrast and high detail," says TV3 Area of Exploitation director Ramon Sangrà.

"Leader's LV7300 rasterizer gives our operators all the tools they need to ensure that these enhancements are carried right through the production process from capture, post and archiving to actual transmission. The instrument's ability to handle 4K helps to safeguard our investment as the broadcast industry embraces ever higher standards."

Custom Consoles Module-R Desks and MediaWall Monitor Display Mounts Selected for Cardiff University School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies Posted: 10/12/2019
Custom Consoles Module-R Desks and MediaWall Monitor Display Mounts Selected for Cardiff University School of Journalism, Media and amp; Cultural Studies

 

Custom Consoles announces the completion of Module-R studio control desks and two MediaWall monitor display mounts for Cardiff University's School of Journalism, Media & Cultural Studios. The desks and display mounts form part of a full broadcast-quality news studio facility designed by UK-based system integrator ATG Danmon.

"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 coincided with a relocation to new city-centre premises. It comprised a large TV studio and dedicated gallery, a smaller TV studio with its associated gallery, plus a broadcast newsroom. These will be used to train the next generation of television, radio, online and printed-media journalists. Module-R desks and MediaWalls are used in many broadcast facilities in the UK, Europe, MENA and Asia, so were a logical choice given the need to match the functionality and processes of a real broadcast environment. They are robustly constructed, ergonomically efficient for engineering staff and well as operators, and attractively styled. Both product series also gave us the freedom to match the available room dimensions from standard modular elements."

Leader LV5600 Test Instruments Chosen for TVNs UE6 4K HDR OB Truck Posted: 23/10/2019
Leader LV5600 Test Instruments Chosen for TVNs UE6 4K HDR OB Truck

TVN MOBILE PRODUCTION has chosen Leader LV5600 test instruments as the technical reference for its newly completed UE6 4K HDR OB truck, reported to be the largest of its kind in Europe. Built in partnership between TVN and Sony, the vehicle is optimised for high quality UHD, HD and mixed format production in both HDR and SDR. Its first deployment was at the Northern Ireland v Germany UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier in Belfast in September.

 
"Leader's LV5600 provides all the test and measurement facilities we need both in the SDI and IP domains," says TVN CEO Markus Osthaus. "We have invested in three units – one for each of our production galleries and the third for the associated tender vehicle. The instruments pack a lot of features into a very compact space, including 4K, HD, HDR and SDR signal analysis. They are particularly useful for matching incoming video feeds including up to 30 Sony HDC-4300 UHD cameras."
 
""Shooting in 4K UHD requires very precise signal monitoring from the the initial point of capture right through the production and post-production chain," adds Leader's European Regional Development Manager, Kelvin Salvidge. "The LV5600 and its LV7600 rasterising equivalent are no-compromise test instruments which we see becoming the reference of choice both in the mobile and studio-based markets. Their ability to handle SDI and IP makes them truly future-proof."
 
Leader's LV5600 is a mains-powered SDI/IP waveform monitor in a half-rack width 3U desktop chassis with a touch-screen front panel display. It provides all the facilities needed to monitor UHD/HD/SD SDI as well as video-over-IP signals seamlessly in a hybrid operating environment. Engineering-related features include test pattern generation, eye pattern display, closed-caption monitoring, CIE colour chart, high dynamic range measurement, focus assist, customisable screen layout, tally interface, 4K/UHD operation, 10G IP input and 12G-SDI interfaces. SMPTE 2022-6, SMPTE 2022-7 and SMPTE 2110 protocols are all supported. The LV5600 also incorporates Leader's intuitive Cinezone and Cinelite which are familiar to many content production staff.

Broadcast Solutions to Enter the Market for Used OB Vehicles with a New Service Posted: 17/10/2019
Broadcast Solutions to Enter the Market for Used OB Vehicles with a New Service

Antti Laurila, Global Sales Director at Broadcast Solutions, on the move towards used equipment: “Over the years we see a growing need for used production vehicles in many countries. Some of our customers want to upgrade their production fleet and are looking for means to fund the purchase by selling their used OBs. Therefore, it was a logical step to use our know-how and sales network to help them find the right company to sell to.”

Within the new business unit, Broadcast Solutions acts as the agent mediating between the seller and prospective new customers of used OB vehicles. Part of the service is, of course, refurbishments of the used OBs, depending on the overall condition and the needs of the buyer. The company will also use its technical expertise to advise of potential changes that could be possible and technology choices which may provide additional benefits to the new owner. The company also offers an enhanced full support agreement, tailored to protect both equipment and vehicle. With these continuity schemes, buyers can be confident that their new investment will be protected round the clock by engineers they can trust. Identifying necessary technical upgrades for the vehicles to be future-proof investments is a huge benefit for both parties, causing a frictionless sales process and adding more options for the use of certain vehicles.

Broadcast Solutions offers this service worldwide and starts with already four OB trucks in stock, ready for purchase.

More information on the used OB truck service from Broadcast Solutions are available here: used.broadcast-solutions.de
