dock10 unleashes UHD HDR production capabilities with major investment in Sony HDC-3500 4K system cameras
dock10, the UK's leading television facility, has invested in 15 Sony HDC-3500 4K cameras as it future-proofs its infrastructure for increased 4K/UHD output. The strategic investment, made through Sony Specialist Dealer, ES Broadcast forms part of a £5 million technology investment plan to upgrade dock10 studios, post-production facilities, media storage platforms and the network that supports MediaCityUK.
As part of its ongoing commitment to investing in the UK’s very best television studios and helping content creators optimise emerging technologies such as UHD and HDR, dock10 has selected the 4K Live Production system.
The HDC-3500 - launched at IBC 2018 - supports HD, HDR and 4K, as well as IP capabilities, bringing new levels of image quality, portability and creative flexibility to production environments. With a 2/3-inch 4K CMOS sensor with global shutter technology, the cameras empower broadcast and production facilities to deliver image quality in 4K at low noise, high sensitivity and High Dynamic Range.
The Sony cameras were chosen after a rigorous head-to-head assessment process, because of their superior picture quality, format flexibility and impressive imaging power. They will complement the existing suite of Sony BVM-HX310 series monitors used across the dock10 post-production and edit suites. They will also integrate seamlessly into the existing infrastructure to enable optimum workflow efficiency and unlock new possibilities in programme making through 4K/UHD and HDR output.
Commenting on the investment, John O’Shaunessy, Head of Technology Operations at dock10, said: “In seven years since we opened dock10, we have grown into a thriving creative community and powerful regional cluster. Innovative technology has always been part of the fabric of our business and we continue to invest in solutions that will help our customers to explore new creative and commercial opportunities. We share with Sony a mutual commitment to empowering content creators to unleash their potential and our investment in cutting-edge UHD technologies will help our customers explore the latest possibilities in programme making.”
“We’re continuing to see a significant uptick in demand for 4K/UHD, HDR and IP, as the production community looks to untap operational efficiency and ROI,” commented Norbert Paquet, Head of Product Development at Sony Professional. “dock10 sits at the epicenter of UK production and is a prime example of a company investing strategically in forward-proofed solutions that will help drive value for its clients, both today and in the future. With this further investment in our flagship system cameras, the company is sending a very powerful message that it is ready to support customers as they transition to UHD/HDR.”
“We are delighted that dock10 are making this significant investment in UHD technology. ES Broadcast has worked closely with Sony and dock10 over the last 12 months or more to help them expand their UHD broadcast offering, so it is gratifying to see their diligence bear fruit,” add Benjamin Murphy, Managing Director, ES Broadcast.
dock10 is home to some of the nation’s best loved productions - from ‘The Voice’, ‘Blue Peter’, ‘Match of the Day’ and ‘A Question of Sport’. Based at the heart of MediaCityUK, its studios and specialist post-production services are used to make everything from popular prime time shows to outstanding commercials and corporate films for leading brands. It offers broadcasters, production companies and creative agencies the world-class facilities they need to produce award-winning content.
The HDC-3500 cameras are being installed in summer 2019.

Dejero Wins Second Prestigious Technology and Engineering Emmy Award Posted: 21/01/2020
Dejero Wins Second Prestigious Technology and Engineering Emmy Award

Globally recognized award underlines how Dejero exponentially improves flexibility in location coverage for newsgathering and live events crews

Dejero, an innovator in cloud-managed solutions that provide award-winning video transport and Internet connectivity while mobile or in remote locations, has been awarded a second prestigious Technology and Engineering Emmy® Award. The award, in the category of Video over Bonded Cellular Internet (VoCIP) technology, recognizes Dejero’s innovation in the industry, thanks to its Smart Blending Technology and unique hybrid encoding approach.

Headquartered in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, Dejero has perfected its patented and patent-pending Smart Blending and hybrid encoding technologies over the course of the last decade. The technologies work in concert to form a tightly integrated system which responds in real time to changes in network quality and video content. This has helped transform how broadcasters contribute live content from the field using cellular networks, providing newsgathering crews with greater flexibility in terms of the location from where they can transmit a live shot, at a fraction of the cost of conventional uplink technology.

“We are thrilled to win not just one Emmy® – the most recognized broadcast award in the world – but two,” said Bogdan Frusina, founder of Dejero. "Last year the committee rewarded our decade of innovation for pioneering reliable transmission methods that enable live contribution and distribution of TV signals over the public Internet. This year they have gone on to further recognize our industry-leading technologies, showing that our continuous development is raising the quality and reliability standards of mobile video and data transmission.”

Masstech launches new Adobe Premiere Pro panel for Kumulate Posted: 21/01/2020
Masstech launches new Adobe Premiere Pro panel for Kumulate

Adobe Premiere Pro users can now access the powerful functionality of Masstech’s intelligent storage, workflow and lifecycle management solution, Kumulate, from directly within Premiere Pro via an intuitive panel.

The Adobe panel can be quickly and easily added to any Kumulate system with minimal configuration (individual editing stations don’t need to be added as locations in the system). Storage movement and workflow tools are then presented as a plug-in within Adobe Premiere Pro, allowing users to access their entire inventory across any type of online or deeper storage tier, including cloud, local disk, optical disk, and LTO.

All assets on all storage tiers are searchable to Premiere Pro users from within the new panel, using intuitive search criteria including structured, unstructured, and time-based metadata. These powerful tools allow users to quickly access their content libraries from within Adobe Premiere Pro, dramatically speeding up workflows.

Carlos Rodgarman Adds Prestige To His Studio By Installing A Genesys Black Posted: 20/01/2020
Carlos Rodgarman Adds Prestige To His Studio By Installing A Genesys Black

Los Angeles based producer and composer Carlos Rodgarman has installed an AMS Neve Genesys Black console in is private studio in Los Angeles.

Within months of installing the G16 desk, Rodgarman was so impressed by its power, flexibility and the way it streamlined his workflow that he upgraded to a G48 by adding a 16 channel expansion module. He also took the opportunity install the Neve GenesysControl Plugin and Neve 88R EQ hardware.

“To say I am blown away by this console is an understatement,” Rodgarman says. “The combination of Genesys Black and GenesysControl has completely revolutionised the way I work. I get all the benefits of Neve’s fabulous analogue EQ and dynamics without having to sacrifice any of the convenience of working ‘in the box’. It is transformative – just saying I have a Neve console is impressive because my clients understand the brand’s audio quality and pedigree.”

Originally from Spain, Rodgarman moved to America 18 years ago to pursue a career as a musician. As a talented pianist, he worked with many artists including Celine Dion, All-4-One, Prince Royce, Jonathan Butler, Sheila E, La India and many more.

Leeds Trinity University chooses Quicklink TX for Yorkshire Voice Posted: 20/01/2020
Leeds Trinity University chooses Quicklink TX for Yorkshire Voice

Leeds Trinity University, a university renowned for teaching excellence in television and radio, have adopted the Quicklink TX to introduce guests into their Yorkshire Voice show.

The Yorkshire Voice is a local live news show produced by Journalism students at Leeds Trinity University which is broadcast live across the University’s social media platforms and website.

At the University’s studio, the Quicklink TX is set up next to the vision mixer station. A production team member is assigned to contacting and managing the guest contributors using the Quicklink and Skype TX Controller. The SDI output from the Quicklink TX is fed into the mixer and then into the studio screen and live output.

“The Quicklink TX has enabled our Journalism students to introduce live remote contributors without the need for them to always come to the studio itself for a short interview. The solution allows our BJTC MA Journalism students to replicate remote live feeds as seen on professional broadcast productions.” Mark Willett, Senior Media Technician at Leeds Trinity University.

Mark continues “The Quicklink TX not only supplements our remote live streaming location camera but enables Journalism students in the field using a phone with Skype to provide live remote coverage”.

Intinor joins SRT Alliance

Intinor, Sweden’s leading developer of products and solutions for high-quality video over internet, has joined the Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) Alliance.

SRT is an open source video transport protocol that optimizes streaming performance across unpredictable networks, enabling the best quality live video to be transported over even the most questionable networks. The SRT Open Source project, which is spearheaded by the SRT Alliance, is a collaborative community of industry leaders and developers striving to achieve lower latency internet video transport by continuously improving open-source SRT.

As part of its participation in the alliance, Intinor has added support for SRT’s “Listener” delivery mode, soon to be followed by SRT’s “Caller” and “Rendezvous” mode to the entire Intinor Direkt Router range. Intinor has also used the opportunity to add support for NDI® connectivity.

Intinor CEO Roland Axelsson said, “The industry has embraced SRT, which has proven to be a truly collaborative and beneficial way of working together to establish a streaming protocol that mitigates or resolves issues that still surround video transport latency without having to resort to resourcing expensive alternatives.

RUSHWORKS, provider of cool technology for production, playback and streaming since 2001, enters the market with a bang for 2020, introducing another “powerfully simple” integrated PTZ production system for remote and studio operation.

REMO NDI incorporates a touch screen computer with super-fast processing, providing a small footprint system with enormous capabilities that marry well with RUSHWORKS mature production and camera control technology.

“NDI connectivity has transformed traditional wiring requirements into a few CAT5 cables that carry video, audio, PTZ camera protocols and power”, Beesley says. “We put more power and functionality into a couple of rugged Pelican cases than you’ll find in most OB (Outside Broadcast) vans … at a fraction of the size, cost and operational complexity.”

The standard REMO NDI system is powered by an All-In-One computer with 24” touchscreen and blazing fast i9 processor operating on Windows 10 Pro with 1TB SSD storage. It includes the RUSHWORKS custom shortcut keyboard, six-button Hall-effect joystick, an eight-port PoE GigE switch, and two (2) NDI PTZ cameras with 30x optical zoom lenses. It all fits in two ruggedized traveling containers with wheels and extendable handle.
