Tedial Certifies Ebantic as Advanced Developer of Evolution MAM Platform

Tedial, the leading independent MAM technology solutions specialist, has announced that it has certified Ebantic, a provider of solutions for the integrated management of audiovisual content, as Advanced Developer of its flexible and configurable Evolution MAM platform. Using Tedial’s Integration API, third-parties can develop tailored solutions and services for customers via the Tedial Evolution MAM platform, further highlighting the scalability and flexibility of the solution.

NUGEN Delivers Deeper Workflow Control for Producer Mixer Alvin Wee Posted: 20/11/2019
NUGEN Delivers Deeper Workflow Control for Producer Mixer Alvin Wee

For as long as he could remember, Producer/mixer Alvin Wee loved music and film; and he was fortunate enough to cut his teeth working with composers and record producers in Los Angeles on film projects such as Kung Fu PandaKingsman and Eddie the Eagle. Having such a strong background in the industry, Wee takes pride in knowing that when someone hands a project off to him, it will be done correctly, and well. In order to achieve those results, Wee relies on NUGEN Audio’s Producer bundle and Halo Upmix solutions.

 

Wee’s introduction to NUGEN began as it often does, by word of mouth. “I was talking with industry friends and colleagues. I mentioned that I was looking for a specific product for a project I was working on, and one of them recommended NUGEN,” he says. “Then, I was at a GRAMMY® party and an engineer who is a monster in the business told me that NUGEN’s meters are incredible, so I decided to check them out. I started using the NUGEN plug-ins and, right off the bat, they did exactly what I needed. So, I just kept using them.”

 

Ideally suited for both mixing and mastering situations, NUGEN’s Producer software provides Wee with a collection of highly flexible award-winning cross-platform plug-ins designed to increase the quality and efficiency of his productions. “The Producer software has been incredibly useful for me,” he adds. “I love the Stereoizer; it’s my go to plug-in that I use on all my mixes and checks. It allows me to control all the low-end and make sure that a recording doesn’t get too wobbly or crazy. I can even make the high-end feel wider and more exciting. It works really well and is very intuitive.The Visualizer tool included in the bundle is also excellent as its meters are tremendous in helping me see what I’m doing.”

Calrec Delivers for Liberman Broadcasting Posted: 19/11/2019
Calrec Delivers for Liberman Broadcasting

As the largest privately held, minority-owned Spanish-language broadcaster in the US, Liberman Broadcasting, Inc. (LBI Media, Inc.), produces over 50 hours of original television programming each week. LBI Media’s fast-paced news studios require adaptable, quick to set up and easy to operate audio solutions. In order to shift focus as rapidly as the news itself, LBI Media relies on Calrec Audio’s Brio36 and Summa digital audio consoles.

“We chose Calrec based on the company’s reputation within the industry and also to complement the rental trucks we use, the majority of which come standard with Calrec consoles,” says Chris Buchanan, vice president of engineering, Liberman Broadcasting, Inc. “We purchased the Brio36 earlier this year for LBI’s newly launched news operation in our Dallas (Irving, Texas) office, while the Summa was acquired last year as part of a much-needed upgrade at our Burbank, California facility.”

LBI Media relies on both consoles for live programming of its local and national news shows, including Alarma TV, El Mameluco, iTestigo, Noticiero Cierra de Edicion, Noticiero Estrella TV and En Vivo. As with any studio, real estate is important for LBI’s production spaces. The compact form-factor of the Calrec Brio 36 makes it a general-purpose workhorse and its connectivity with the company’s Hydra2 compatible equipment makes it even more versatile. The Brio 36 provides analogue and digital I/O and GPIO, which are built into the surface, making the console ideally suited for broadcast environments.

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.

Perfectly in sync: Atomos and Timecode Systems reveal first generation of a new, integrated product range at Inter BEE 2019

Take a global leader in recorder-monitors and add to it the clout of a powerful wireless sync platform and you get boundless opportunities for multicamera content creation of every budget and genre. The announcement of the acquisition of Timecode Systems by Atomos a few weeks ago came with a bold promise of a new, more democratic era for multicamera video production. And at this week’s Inter BEE exhibition in Japan, the newly joined companies are showing they’re already making significant headway on delivering this vision.

For InterBEE 2019, Atomos is putting the AtomX SYNC accessory for the Ninja V centre stage. It’s the first product from the recorder-monitor leaders to include fully integrated Timecode Systems sync power. This adds advanced wireless sync and remote device control features to the Ninja V’s feature set. Attaching the module locks the connected camera into a robust, frame-accurate sync with other Ninja Vs, and also any other sound and video devices, and even compatible smartphone camera apps using Timecode Systems products.

AJA Upgrades Ki Pro GO and Ki Pro Ultra Plus Posted: 13/11/2019
AJA Upgrades Ki Pro GO and amp; Ki Pro Ultra Plus

 AJA Video Systems has introduced new upgrades for its Ki Pro Family of production-proven file-based recorders. A new v1.5 firmware update for Ki Pro GO adds timecode recording and playback, expanded primary and backup recording to all USB ports and new clip naming and segment recording. Ki Pro Ultra Plus v5.0 introduces a new Infinite Recording feature that allows the unit to act as an always running backup recorder. Both firmware updates will be available soon to customers as free downloads.

Ki Pro GO is AJA’s new portable, multi-channel H.264 recorder and player, featuring up to 4-channels of simultaneous HD and SD capture to affordable, off-the-shelf USB media. With the v1.5 firmware update, Ki Pro GO now records and plays video with timecode. The timecode can originate from an incoming SDI video’s RP188 data, be recorded as the time of date or be specified to start at a specific hour. For playback, timecode values are automatically embedded as RP188 data on Ki Pro GO’s SDI outputs. The v1.5 update also expands backup and primary recording to all five USB ports, providing users with increased flexibility to choose their desired recording destination. Additionally, the update adds new clip naming and segment recording, automatically creating a unique file name for each clip and identifying each segment of a continuous recording for extended event time needs.
