Quicklink meets massive demand for video-over-IP solutions during Covid-19 lockdown

The restrictions put in place due to Covid-19 have meant broadcasters and production companies have had to change the fundamental way they work.

The shift from an office-based to home-based environment has created an incredible demand for high-quality contributions from people around the world who traditionally would have attended studios. For companies such as Quicklink, an innovator in video-over-IP solutions, this has generated unprecedented opportunities.

Doha 360 Selects Ikegami UHK-430 and HDK-99 Cameras for New 4K OB Vehicle

Ikegami UHK-430 and HDK-99 cameras have been selected for a recently completed 4K OB vehicle commissioned by Doha 360, an IP-based media platform which enhances Qatar's national identity and reflects social and cultural progress through continuous coverage of cultural, sports and social events.

Designed and built by Milan-based broadcast system integrator Aret Video & Audio Engineering, the vehicle was commissioned in time to cover the Qatar National Day festivities celebrating the country's foundation in 1878.

"The Ikegami cameras were selected both for their high signal quality and for the proven excellence of Ikegami post-sale support," comments Aret's Vice President Alessandro Asti. "Eight UHK-430 models have been purchased plus two docking-style HDK-99. All 10 cameras can be tripod or pedestal mounted to achieve steady long-zoom closeup capture of fast-moving action while retaining the freedom to operate in free-style over-the-shoulder mode. The HDK-99 can be configured to feed directly from the camera control unit into any 4K periphery."

HD BROADCAST Chooses Leader LV5600 Waveform Monitors for OB2 UHD Truck Posted: 24/06/2020
HD BROADCAST Chooses Leader LV5600 Waveform Monitors for OB2 UHD Truck

Television production service provider HD BROADCAST, based near Mainz, has invested in Leader LV5600 waveform monitors for installation in its new UHD OB2 outside broadcast production vehicle. The instruments will be used to ensure precise matching of incoming signal feeds and to maintain the highest possible video and audio signal quality through to the transmitted output. Six units were supplied by Leader Europe distribution partner LOGIC Media Solutions.

"UHD gives content producers the ability to deliver a level of picture quality akin to the real-world live experience," says HD BROADCAST MD Constantin Novotny. "The initial challenge production teams face is to ensure every camera is fully aligned and matched to any others being used, not least in terms of colour temperature. Using the LV5600 instruments we can check those parameters quickly and accurately both in terms of signal levels and chroma vectors."

"Each LV5600 also includes a very useful tool for checking that the captured image is in perfect focus. This is especially valuable given the tremendous amount of detail UHD can resolve. The instruments also provide the measurement capabilities needed to handle additional parameters such as high dynamic range and wide color gamut."

Complementary 12G-SDI / 3G-SDI quad link interfaces are also available. This approach allows 3G camera systems to be integrated into 4K environments easily and cost-efficiently.

The Ikegami BSX-100 provides full support for Hybrid Log Gamma in conformance with ITU-R BT.2100 which is the international standard for HDR. Wide colour gamut is also supported.
