Jigsaw24 Expands Via24 Cloud Services With Deployment of EditShare EFSv

EditShare®, a technology leader that specializes in collaboration, security, and intelligent storage solutions for media creation and management, today announced that Jigsaw24 is the first UK-based EditShare reseller to deploy EFSv, enabling virtualized production and editing workflows in the AWS cloud. EFSv significantly expands multi vendor remote production and post production capabilities, which is attractive to Jigsaw24’s customers who rely on a broad range of creative platforms for projects.

We serve a market that has a lot of independent creatives hired for their talent, not the tools they use. Being vendor-agnostic and offering open solutions that allow creative freedom is the cornerstone of our business,” states David Skeggs, Head of Business Management, Jigsaw24. “Of all the remote production and media management solutions in the cloud, EFSv is the best at enabling workflows for customers who need to support multiple editorial tools. Creator-focused, EFSv makes it seamless to move from one creative tool to the next with underlying capabilities to build extensive media workflows.”

FOR-A HVS-2000 Video Switcher Helps Custom Media Solutions Pivot from Live Event to Streaming Event with Limited Crew Posted: 13/05/2020
FOR-A HVS-2000 Video Switcher Helps Custom Media Solutions and nbsp;Pivot from Live Event to Streaming Event with Limited Crew and nbsp;

When the COVID-19 pandemic forced Orange Conference 2020, an annual event in Atlanta for Christian family ministry teams, to convert from a live, arena-sized event to a three-day streaming program, Custom Media Solutions relied heavily on its FOR-A HVS-2000 video switcher. The coverage required 16 inputs, 10 keyers, 11 DVEs, and at least four AUX buses.

Due to social distancing requirements, CMS had to produce the event using less than half of its usual crew in its production trailer. “We automated as much as possible using the features from the switcher,” said Marc Shroyer, president of CMS. “We had a couple of still stores with user flags and a lot of lower-thirds from the ProPresenter presentation system. We used DVEs for picture-in-picture looks that we could display on the multi-view at all times, so we could decide when to use them on the fly.”

The contestants’ performances were played live to NAMM-goers through KRK ROKIT G4 10-3 Studio Monitors and winners were chosen by a Gibson panel toward the end of each day. Word of the contest spread quickly as each daily winner took home a new pair of KRK’s ROKIT G4 RP5 White Noise Studio Monitors and KNS8400 Headphones.

QCommunications Takes Flight with the Launch of its Airborne Division Manned by Company and rsquo;s QForce Posted: 06/05/2020
QCommunications Takes Flight with the Launch of its Airborne Division Manned by Company and rsquo;s QForce

QCommunications (QComm), a leading engineering project management and installation vendor specializing in The Spectrum Act (REPACK project), has announced the launch of its Airborne Division. The Airborne Division, established to answer the growing demand for safe and accurate signal verification and to maximize product optimizations, will use state-of-the-art, custom made sUAS’s (drones) with proprietary RF software as an added benefit and verification tool to serve and support the broadcast industry.

Leveraging a partnership with SixArms, an innovative company based in Australia that produces efficient, accurate and cost-effective measurement solutions via cutting-edge unmanned aerial vehicle technologies, The Airborne Division utilizes proven signal verification and coverage mapping technology to capture the characterizations of antenna systems. This system allows measurements of Horizontal Radiation Patterns (HRP), Vertical Radiation Patterns (VRP), Effective Radiated Patterns (ERP), polarization discriminations and many other specific modulation parameters while providing overall uncertainties in the order of 1-2dB. QComm’s Airborne Division will be one of just two SixArm certified “operators” within the United States.

NC State University Revolutionizes Production Facilities with IP Connectivity Posted: 06/05/2020
NC State University Revolutionizes Production Facilities with IP Connectivity

North Carolina (NC) State University has transformed its live course production capabilities with a networked video infrastructure, based on the SMPTE ST 2110 standard for connectivity, around its campuses in Raleigh, N.C. Technology from Imagine Communications is at the heart of NC State DELTA (Distance Education and Learning Technology Applications) providing a quantum leap in capacity and operational efficiency.

DELTA already had dedicated fiber runs linking their centralized operations center located in Ricks Hall Annex with six other buildings on the main campus and two additional buildings located up to 10.5 kilometers (6.5 miles) away on their Centennial Campus. Fiber links were being used simply as single-mode, point-to-point connections, providing the capacity for just four video signals per classroom transmitted back to the operations center. In addition to replacing systems that were beyond end of life, it was important to DELTA to provide much greater capacity if it was to meet its commitment to the wider university community for high-quality educational media supporting distance learning in an efficient, effective and service-oriented environment. For the year 2018-2019, this included more than 130 live courses and greater than 7,000 hours of classroom recordings, to support almost 50,000 students enrolled in online and distance learning courses.

The new system uses just 16 fibers to provide extensive networked capability, leaving 20 strands from the original installation free for future expansion. By taking a networked IP approach, the new system gave the DELTA team the capability of 32 x 32 HD signals from each remote building. This is achieved thanks to bidirectional 100 gigabit ethernet capacity across the fiber network.

With the launch of the 1073® OPX, AMS Neve has taken its 1970s classic and updated it for today’s workflow by packing eight legendary 1073® remote-controlled preamps with Marinair® transformers into a 2U rack unit.

The optional digital I/O card comes with Neve’s industry-revered mastering-grade converters with up to 192kHz/24-Bit A/D conversion over USB connection. This ensures that the unit can be used as a Primary Audio Interface to any connected DAW-enabled computer, as well as Primary and Secondary Dante™ connectivity for Audio-over-IP applications.

The 1073® OPX is shipping now and carries a retail price £2,995 / $3,695. The price for the optional Digital I/O card is £795 / $995. As an introductory offer, AMS Neve is selling the 1073® OPX and Digital I/O card together at a special bundle price of £3,495 / $4,295.
