Source Distribution hosts the world premiere of the RODE Reporter Microphone at BVE North

Source Distribution was proud to present the World Premiere of the RODE Reporter Microphone, demoed at Stand E17, during the 2012 BVE North Show at the Manchester Central Exhibition Centre.

RODE has built a wide-ranging portfolio of microphones that cater for the broadcast market, at highly competitive price points. The Reporter is the latest in a line which includes the ever-popular NTG range of shotgun microphones, the innovative PinMic lapel microphone and the compact VideoMic range of on-camera DSLR microphones.

The Reporter is a die-cast dynamic hand-held interview microphone voiced primarily for speech. Due to its omnidirectional pickup pattern, the Reporter is free of the technique-related voicing issues that can occur with end-addressed alternatives. An innovative multi-layer mesh basket removes the need for a separate foam windshield to protect against environmental noise, and all Reporter microphones are supplied with a soft carry case and removable 'Flag' to accommodate prominent branding for video use.

RODE microphones are exclusively distributed in the UK and Ireland by Source Distribution. Alex Theakston, Marketing Co-ordinator for Source, comments: RODE have a knack for making highly affordable microphones without compromise, due in no small part to their impressive manufacturing facilities in their headquarters in Silverwater, Sydney. The Reporter is a welcome addition to a hugely popular roster of mics, and bolstered by its inclusion in RODE's new web-based SoundBooth audio demo application, we have no doubt it will start making an impact once broadcast professionals at BVE and beyond hear its results for themselves."

The RODE Reporter will be widely available in the UK & Ireland in February 2013, and is covered by RODEs industry leading 10 year warranty.

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.

Grass Valley and rsquo;s GV Alyve is the Clear Winner for Miss Germany Competition

 

Grass Valley’s cloud-based video production and distribution solution was central to AKK TV’s live streaming of the Miss Germany 2020 competition, held on February 15 at the Europa-Park Arena near Freiburg.

Integrating seamlessly with AKK TV’s existing Grass Valley workflow, GV Alyve also allows graphics to be added to the live stream and provides a straightforward interface for managing social interactions across multiple platforms. The system was supplied by Grass Valley’s German reseller, LOGIC media solutions.

John Sturm, Managing Director of AKK TV commented: “We looked at a number of different solutions on the market and GV Alyve exceeded our expectations both on functionality and ease of use. We’ve worked with the Grass Valley and LOGIC teams in the past and they really understand our requirements. The added capability GV Alyve brings to our workflow allows us to grow the live streaming area of our business without adding complexity to our OB set-up.”

Pete Semerak, Grass Valley’s vice president, production, added: “We’re very pleased to see a successful first deployment for GV Alyve with AKK TV. In today’s live productions environment fast and smart ways of working are central to our customers’ needs. GV Alyve gives broadcasters and production companies a simple way to integrate online and social delivery, allowing production staff to distribute media to viewers with a single click and ultimately satisfying consumer demand for always-on content.”

The international manufacturer of high-quality, easy-to-use, robust and reliable robotic and manual camera support systems will demonstrate advancements that incorporate an IP interface into its flagship SmartPed robotic pedestal; a self-contained and easy to connect pan/tilt head; numerous enhancements incorporated into the Company’s TR-XT control system and will also highlight its height drive and pan/tilt head ideal for legislative applications.

SmartPed Fully Robotic Pedestal – Absolutely Brilliant Navigation

SmartPed with Absolute Navigation is perfect for those applications where referencing the fully robotic pedestal is inconvenient or the design of the studio leaves no scope for a floor tile reference position. SmartPed now comes with two optional additions depending on the environment – AN-I is an IP interface within SmartPed enabling it to interface to existing external optical tracking systems such as Mosys StarTracker or Stype RedSpy using the absolute tracking information to reference and adjust the pedestals own internal navigation systems. AN-S provides a full integrated solution, including the optical tracking system for situations where customers do not already have installed optical tracking.

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.

AMS Neve Helps Parasite Deliver Exceptional Sound Quality Posted: 26/02/2020
AMS Neve Helps Parasite Deliver Exceptional Sound Quality

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.
