EXTERITY ANNOUNCES MAJOR GROWTH CONTINUES AS COMPANY PREPARES FOR EXCITING 2020, KICKING OFF WITH NEW PRODUCTS AT ISE

Date: 05/02/2020

Exterity, a leading global provider of IP video, digital signage and guest experience technologies, is off to a strong start in 2020, announcing 15% growth in both revenues and staff numbers last year when it made a series of important hires and opened key new offices to help keep pace with rapid global growth. The company, headquartered in Dalgety Bay near Edinburgh, Scotland, has seen tremendous expansion over the past three years, with revenues soaring by 80% since 2017. The announcement comes as the company prepares to unveil a raft of new products at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE 2020), which runs 11-14 February in The Netherlands (stand #10.K163, RAI, Amsterdam).

Colin Farquhar, CEO at Exterity, says: “At Exterity, we have believed since our inception in 2001 that providing the best solutions to the market requires having the best people, and we look forward to showcasing our latest innovations at ISE 2020. Having the right people in the right positions in each market better equips us to meet the massive rise in demand we are seeing on the ground.”

Over the past few months, Exterity has announced a string of key new hires across the nine offices it operates globally, including the recent hiring of Emily Parker as Sales Manager for Americas, which in turn comes on the heels of the promotion of Steven Forrest to Sales Director for Americas. The company also appointed Zaher Ajeeb as Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Sales Manager, and Victor Hasan as Regional Sales Manager, Hospitality for the Middle East, while Walid Tabet was promoted to Regional Sales Director for the Middle East. Most recently, Jamie March joined the Australia New Zealand team as Sales Manager, based in Sydney.

To bolster its global presence further in 2019, Exterity opened new offices in Saudi Arabia and in New Jersey in the US, as well as a new software innovation centre in Porto, Portugal. In 2019 the company also strengthened key partnerships with Intel, Philips, Samsung, Sky and Sony.

The new product showcase at ISE 2020 follows on a highly successful 2019 when Exterity’s solutions were adopted by a number of new customers around the world, including motorsport park The Bend, French media company NextRadioTV and the Parliament of Victoria in Australia. The products and solutions being showcased at ISE 2020 include:

· New 4K Media Player with 4K 60fps graphics and animations capability: The new AvediaPlayer m9605 Media Player can integrate both 4K video and smooth, highly detailed 4K 60fps graphics and animations into digital signage for an enhanced and captivating visual experience. The Exterity stand at ISE will feature an up-close demo.

· New ArtioFlow workflow app: ArtioFlow enables the creation of time-saving workflows by simply dragging a series of actions across the IPTV system – such as power on, set volume or channel change – to create action sequences.

· Next generation Encoders ship with Intel E3900 series technology inside: Exterity’s next generation 38-series AvediaStream HDMI Encoders, powered by Intel’s innovative Atom® E3900 processor, provide a more flexible solution, capable of supporting a wider range of codecs versus traditional, single codec ASIC solutions.

· New Pro:Idiom Gateway: The newest Exterity AvediaStream Gateway supports content-protected live TV and radio from satellite sources and streams it securely across an IP network. The g4417-pi meets the most stringent content protection requirements in delivering premium channels across an IP network.

· New AvediaStream g4401 IP-IP Gateway: The new g4401 IP-IP Gateway ensures that two paired Exterity gateways can send and receive secure reliable video streams over the internet using the SRT protocol. This enables organisations to deliver live video between remote sites, without the need for costly dedicated delivery networks.

Exterity has a global presence with customers in multiple sectors that include corporate & finance, hospitality, stadiums & venues, broadcast & media and education. Customers include organisations such as Bayer, BBC, BNP Paribas, Lord’s Cricket Ground, The Open golf championship, ParisLongchamp, Parliament of Victoria, Okada Manila Casino & Resorts, and many more.

Shotoku USA to Exhibit Manual Camera Support Solutions at NAB 2020 Posted: 27/02/2020
Shotoku USA to Exhibit  Manual Camera Support Solutions at NAB 2020

Shotoku USA, Shotoku Broadcast Systems’ North American operation, will highlight a complement of manual support solutions at NAB 2020 in Booth C 9108 targeting a wide-range of applications. The international leader in the manufacture and marketing of camera support products will display a line-up that includes an addition to the recently launched SX200/260 ENG/EFP systems; the affordable, entry-level SD & SE tripod series, and the universally successful TP500/SX300 studio pedestal/head combination.

SX200 and SX260 ENG/EFP systems

Raising the bar on movement quality and shot framing control, the recently launched Shotoku SX200 and SX260 pan and tilt heads incorporate a brand-new design featuring Shotoku’s “Truebalance” for perfect counterbalance that is also easy to adjust throughout the range and has an intuitive display to indicate the current setting. The drag system uses Shotoku’s well known Viscam design but adds a new actuation system that combines the convenience and speed of selection of a stepped system, with the fine tuning and on-shot adjustment of a continuously variable design. The SX200 has a max payload of 44Lbs (20Kg) and the SX260 55Lbs (25Kg). The systems come standard with 2 stage ENG Carbon Fibre legs and is one of the lightest on the market at these payloads.

NEW for NAB 2020 - With these SX200/SX260 heads crossing over to the EFP application, the new TTH1002C 100mm carbon fibre EFP tripod has been added to provide an extremely rigid solution, useful when using longer lenses for sports and documentary production.

PSSI Global Services engineers massive at-home transmission for Rolex 24 Posted: 27/02/2020
PSSI Global Services engineers massive at-home transmission for Rolex 24

For NASCAR’s Rolex 24, PSSI Global Services, the industry leader in live event management, transmission and connectivity solutions, successfully engineered an at-home transmission that included delivery of 32 video paths and 150 audio paths via both satellite and AT&T Global Video Services fiber.

“This was a remarkably complex transmission for what is undoubtedly the biggest at-home transmission in the country,” said PSSI’s Director of Broadcast Sports Rick Ball. “Once again, we have continued to change the game, proving just how much can be accomplished with the right mix of expertise, experience and technology.”

Using two and a half transponders and only one amplifier, the company transmitted three different modulation schemes at the same time. The primary multiplex utilized DVB-S2X/32APSK, while the secondary program multiplex was modulated using DVB-S2X/16APSK, each at 125 Mbps. The third multiplex was 40 Mbps using DVB-S2/8PSK modulation. All together the three multiplexes, totaling 290 Mbps, occupied only 90 MHz of satellite bandwidth.

PSSI International Teleport (PIT) provided extensive hub services between the racetrack in Daytona Beach, Florida, and NASCAR headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina.

In addition to transmission of the video and audio, PSSI Global Services was also responsible for providing comms and internet for production.

Mediaproxy to demonstrate full LogServer functionality at CABSAT 2020 Posted: 27/02/2020
Mediaproxy to demonstrate full LogServer functionality at CABSAT 2020

Mediaproxy, the leading provider of software-based IP broadcast solutions, will show the latest upgrades to its LogServer IP logging, monitoring and analysis system on booth A4-10 during CABSAT 2020 from 31 March to 2 April at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

CABSAT is the leading broadcast, satellite and content exhibition for the Middle East, Africa and South Asia markets. The show is a major draw for manufacturers of production, delivery and digital media technology. Now arranged to showcase three key broadcast sectors, CABSAT covers Content Creation, Content Production and Post-Production and Content Distribution and Delivery.

Mediaproxy produces technology that plays a major role in ensuring material leaving playout systems meets technical compliance standards. Platforms such as LogServer are also able to analyze and correct any problems or faults in the distribution chain. To perform these tasks more quickly and efficiently, Mediaproxy recently added exception-based monitoring to LogServer's feature set. This uses IP penalty boxes that allow broadcasters and MSOs (multiple system operators) working at scale to deal with QC and compliance more efficiently.

Interactivity is also a major consideration for broadcasters and service providers, particularly because social media is how many people access video today. Outlets such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube have different, specific requirements for how material is prepared and Mediaproxy has incorporated dedicated tools for this into LogServer. These include features for cropping the image and altering the aspect ratio to make it better suited to mobile devices, in addition to the capability for inserting ad bumpers.

Bolero Sets the Bar for Wireless Intercom Usability and Comfort for California-Based DP Craig Kief Posted: 26/02/2020
Bolero Sets the Bar for Wireless Intercom Usability and Comfort for California-Based DP Craig Kief

Craig Kief, a Los Angeles-based director of photography, is using Riedel's Bolero Standalone wireless intercom for crew communications on his TV shows and commercials. The system allows him to keep all of his camera operators, focus pullers, and department heads in close communication so everyone can focus on the same goals in the middle of a busy and noisy set. With its long list of advanced features and capabilities, Bolero now enables clear communications for every production, whether it's shot on studio sets or at remote locations.

Craig's previous comms solution comprised walkie-talkies and a legacy wireless system that operated in the crowded 2.4 GHz range, delivering less-than-ideal audio quality and suffering from interference, short range, and poor battery life. Bolero has changed all of that, first by eliminating walkie-talkies completely, and next by allowing a more natural way of speaking: giving multiple users full duplex communications instead of forcing them to wait for a walkie channel to be clear before speaking.

Dalet Galaxy five gave us the technical capabilities to build this innovative media production ecosystem, with the workflow acceleration to engage with our audiences in real-time,” explains Pedro Carmona, CTO of TV Azteca. “The project execution was remarkable and the resulting impact immediate.

The benchmark for improved performance was undeniable and provided us the efficiency required to expand program options for our viewers.

South Korean film facility Live Tone Studios is celebrating the success of Parasite, the comedy satire directed by Bong Joon-ho that made Academy Awards® history in February by becoming the first foreign language film to win an Oscar® for Best Picture.

Audio post production for this remarkable movie, which also picked up three other Oscars® for Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best International Film, was carried out at the facility using one of its two large format AMS Neve DFC 3D film consoles. A 48-channel Neve Genesys console also played its part as this was used to record and monitor Additional Dialogue Replacement (ADR).

Ralph Tae-Young Choi is CEO, Sound Supervisor and Re-recording mixer at Live Tone Studios, a facility he helped establish in 1997, says: “The sound of Parasite was so detailed and emotional that it needed the console automation to operate very efficiently and simply. This is where the Neve DFC 3D really came into its own. I mix all of my movie sound with an AMS Neve DFC 3D console because it has a much more powerful audio engine and better audio quality than other consoles or DAWs. For a mixer to be intuitive and efficient, you need the console to be reliable and the AMS Neve DFC 3D excels at that.”

Nevion reports record year as shift to IP in broadcasting intensifies Posted: 26/02/2020
Nevion reports record year as shift to IP in broadcasting intensifies

Nevion, award-winning provider of virtualized media production solutions, has announced that 2019 was a record year for the company with sales orders up 52% compared to the previous year.

In addition to this, software and services now represent almost half (48%) of Nevion’s sales. This is a significant increase from 2014 when software and services represented just 16% of the company’s sales – underlining the move from dedicated hardware to software-defined IP solutions. This shift is further illustrated by the fact that two-thirds of the hardware being sold by Nevion is now IP equipment.

In 2019, Nevion provided workflow-transforming solutions, products and services to over 150 customers in around 50 countries. One of the ground-breaking projects delivered was for the organization behind the League of Legends (LoL) esports tournament, Riot Games who used Nevion’s software-defined media node Virtuoso with JPEG XS for part of its remote production of the LoL World Championship Final. 

One other highlight of 2019 for Nevion was signing a strategic partnership with Sony Imaging Products & Solutions Inc. (“Sony”), in the area of IP-based solutions for broadcasters and other industries. As part of the deal, Sony acquired a minority stake in the company through a share purchase agreement making it a leading investor in Nevion.

As a leader in its field, Nevion also spearheaded the VIRTUOSA consortium which received a €2 million grant from the European Commission in 2019 to explore 5G and virtualization remote production.
