Elation Professional has launched the latest addition to its Colour Series of colour-changing LED luminaires, the Colour Pendant - a highly versatile wash light that allows for dynamic control of stage or house lighting levels in an energy-efficient, intelligent downlighting fixture.

The Colour Pendant houses 36 long-life 3W RGBW LEDs for fully blended colour transformations or projections of variable shades of white light. The RGBW LED is capable of emitting a wide palette of colours from saturates to more subtle pastels, making the Colour Pendant an excellent colour matching unit.

Its uniform flat-field output, 3,100 lumens of power and 41° beam angle make for a highly effective wash luminaire whether flooding a stage or studio in hues of color or functionally washing a venue in shades of white light. Full range dimming with selectable dimming curves, strobe and colour macro effects enhance its dynamic capabilities.

The Colour Pendant is convection cooled for silent operation (ideal for noise sensitive environments) and flicker free projection means it can be used in all types of broadcast situations including TV, film and video. It includes removable pendant and yoke mounting brackets for flexible set up and a white model is available through special order.

The Colour Pendant is controllable via 11 DMX channel modes (1 / 3 / 4x2 / 5x2 / 6x2 / 7 / 8 / 10 channel) and is RDM (Remote Device Management) protocol capable. It houses an internal E-Fly extended range wireless DMX transceiver for easier setup with less cable mess. A 4-button control panel with LCD display makes for easy navigation through DMX and manual settings and an auto-sensing power supply covers worldwide voltages and frequencies.

The Colour Pendant is also compact, measuring 14.7” x 9.9” x 12.0” (374mm x 252.5mm x 308.8mm) and weighing only 12.0 lbs (5.4kg). It offers all the benefits of LED like greater reliability, less maintenance and increased energy efficiency (only 110W max power consumption) for a lower cost of ownership.

Adamson Systems Engineering recently announced that registration for its popular Blueprint AV software is now free of charge to members of the professional audio industry.

James Oliver, director of marketing and sales for Adamson, commented: “We've had a banner year in terms of the growth of the company, so we decided to make Blueprint free of charge to thank all of our current and future customers. People are hearing the buzz that surrounds Adamson and now they can experience why that is happening. It’s time to let everyone try out the software that when paired with Adamson loudspeakers provides system designers with one of the most powerful tools in our industry.”

Blueprint AV allows system designers and technicians to build a simple or very complex listening area, hang multiple arrays, simulate response with a variety of acoustic measurement tools, and provide a detailed and accurate rigging plot that can be exported to DXF files for easy transfer to the rigging team.

Users can choose the quick and effective 2D mode to easily determine optimal splay settings for their arrays within their space, or they can opt for the highly detailed 3D mode, which allows for a wide variety of polygonal shapes to easily and accurately build complex spaces. The software also provides a large variety of simulation options.

Training for the software is available to users through online tutorial videos – click here – or through more in-depth modules with the company.

Having discontinued its previous modelling software, Shooter, in June 2015, Adamson will no longer offer any further updates for the product. The company suggests that those utilising Adamson Shooter now register for a free Blueprint AV account instead.

In late 2014, Symetrix announced extensive new support for third-party Dante devices from Shure, Audio-Technica, Attero Tech and Stewart Audio in version 3.0 of its SymNet Composer open architecture design software. Now, the DSP specialist has expanded its configuration opportunities even further with the release of SymNet Composer 4.0.

With SymNet Composer, integrators can use a single piece of software to streamline their programming, network discovery and Dante signal routing of SymNet hardware and multiple third-party products. The latest software version extends this capability to encompass Attero Tech’s newly-released unDUSB Dante interface.

Trent Wagner, senior product manager, Symetrix, explains: “Attero Tech’s unDUSB is a very handy, driver-free 2x2 USB-to-Dante interface that will be deployed primarily for computer-based applications in conferencing systems such as Skype and Microsoft Lync. It can also assist with playback and recording on a PC, so should be very useful for the purposes of archiving meetings and recording courtroom sessions.”

Additionally, SymNet Composer 4.0 offers full support for Symetrix’ latest ARC series wall panel remote. Expected to begin shipping shortly, ARC-3 will arrive in a single SKU supporting both surface and flush-mounting, and incorporates a brand new capacitive touch interface with LED feedback, as well as a multi-lingual graphics-capable OLED display.

DPA Microphones has revealed that it will be exhibiting the latest additions to its range of broadcast microphones at this year's upcoming IBC 2015 (booth 8:D70).

On show will be the new d:facto Interview Microphone, which was launched in April at NAB 2015 and is already garnering praise for its ability to perform in even the most demanding conditions.

With voice clarity, linearity and low handling/wind noise, this high-end handheld reporter’s mic is ideal for both outdoor or studio interview settings. The microphone features an omnidirectional 2006V capsule, based on DPA’s original 2006, but with sensitivity adjusted down 12 dB to accommodate typical interview mic and wireless handle sensitivities - ideal for handheld interview use.

In conjunction with its Dutch distributor Amptec, DPA will also be showing the recently launched d:fine in-ear broadcast headset microphone. Targeted at broadcast hosts and guests who use in-ear monitors to communicate with their producers backstage or to hear foldback from people interviewed outside the studio, the d:fine in-ear microphone is built on the same state-of-the-art capsules and mechanical design that have made DPA’s d:fine range popular.

This model incorporates two cables — microphone and in-ear — that run parallel to provide a neat and clean look. Ear pads in two different sizes are also included, with no audio leakage between the in-ear drivers and the microphone capsule, which can be either omnidirectional or directional. A steel spring construction at the ear hook offers quick mounting for any ear size, while the cable to the integrated in-ear plug(s) can be lengthened or shortened to suit the user. It is easy to adjust headset mount size and, by choosing between left and right ear orientation, it is even possible to give the broadcast host a ‘camera blind’ side.

DPA will also show its podium range, which includes the d:screet miniature podium microphone. Incorporating special interference tube technology that ensures exceptional directivity and off-axis rejection, the d:screet miniature podium microphone features a miniature capsule mounted on a delicate gooseneck that comes in several lengths for table mounting. It can even be used in a wireless configuration by employing the company’s adapter range, which is already used for other miniature microphones.

DPA's podium range also includes the d:dictate podium microphones, which feature modular capsules from DPA's d:dictate recording microphones. These are acclaimed for their exceptional linear frequency responses, high SPL and superior gain before feedback.

The company will complete its IBC 2015 line up by showing its full line of d:screet miniature, d:fine headset and d:vote instrument solutions, as well as the d:facto vocal microphone.

DPA and Amptec will also be running a daily competition at IBC, giving visitors the chance to win a DPA microphone. Anyone who visits the booth during the day and has their badge scanned will receive a pin. If they return at 5pm each day wearing their pin, they will be entered into the prize draw.

Taking over Frankfurt, Germany for three days, the World Club Dome, developed and organised by BigCityBeats, sees ravers come together under one spectacular roof to enjoy the latest and greatest in Electronic Dance Music (EDM).

BigCityBeats has long been synonymous with major opening and closing shows designed by its initiator and organiser Bernd Breiter. This year, both ceremonies featured a new light show – designed by A&O Creative under the direction of lighting designer Manfred “Ollie” Olma.

For the World Club Dome live shows, the company assembled the largest constellation of luminaires ever deployed for an event of its kind. the enabled A&O Creative, the creative department of Bremen-based lighting specialists A&O Technology, under Olma's direction, delivered its newly conceived light show “Big City Lights”.

The resulting show flooded the arena with impressive images of light. The video content was created by Saskia Olma, whilst Marco Niedermeier, CEO of A&O Technology, was active in the role of executive producer.

Olma reveals: “We provided the illumination from inside, yet to spectators it appeared as though it were happening outside the arena. It is not just an architectonic 3D light but extends into 4D and 5D. Spectators are given the impression that they are travelling in time. Based on the interaction of lighting, video, laser and pyrotechnics, the guiding leitmotif for the lighting design stemmed from the doctrine of the Four Elements. It was supported by powerful sound."

In all, A&O Creative installed almost a hundred FALCON searchlights from event partner A&O Technology in the main stage area of the Commerzbank Arena, which for three days became the world’s biggest club. Among them were a LED band made up of Video FALCONs at the front of the main stage. FALCON BEAM and FLOWER units completed the multi-level constellation.

According to the organisers, some 100,000 visitors (up to 40,000 per day) attended at least one of the shows over the course of the weekend, occupying the 500,000sqm party arena to hear some of the most famous EDM DJs and live acts in the world, including stars such as Avicii, David Guetta, Faithless and Hardwell.


Bernd Breiter, CEO of BigCityBeats, commented: “For the BigCityBeats World Club Dome, we developed an opening and closing show with maximum emotional impact. And thanks to A&O, a magnificent team and incredible equipment (including a multitude of high-powered lamps), we managed to create together a new type of spectacle. The BigCityBeats World Club Dome has drawn a massive response worldwide. I’d like to thank most warmly A&O, Marco Niedermeier, Ollie Olma and the entire team that contributed to the realisation of my dream."

Trusst has introduced a new swivel coupler clamp, model CTC-50SC, that is rated to handle heavy-duty loads up to 1,650 pounds (750kg) while providing flexibility, safety and easy installation.

Designed to connect two sections of 50mm truss or piping, the CTC-50SC features captive T-handles that make installation quick and easy. With a T-handle, the clamp can be tightened much faster because it is more ergonomically friendly to the hand than the typical nut used on most swivel couplers – thereby shaving time off the rigging process.

Another convenient feature on the CTC-50SC is that the end of the bolt is flared so that the T-handle and washer cannot spin all the way off and become lost.

The CTC-50SC coupler features a 360° wraparound design that completely encircles the truss, providing extra stability and security. An added advantage of this design is that it won’t cause any scratching or damage to truss surfaces, extending the life of the truss.

Made of rugged extruded aluminum, the CTC-50SC is built for long-lasting reliability. It is TÜV approved for safe, worry-free installation in any application. The CTC-50SC is designed to fit Trusst’s CT290 Truss Series and other major brands of truss with 50mm main chords as well as 2” steel or aluminum pipes. The clamp weighs 1.3kg and has dimensions 292 x 50 x 114mm.

DCC Labs, a Digital TV software integrator and developer specialising in STB and connected client software, is launching its Freestyle software service for TV operators and system integrators.

The new service, which is being unveiled at TV Connect 2015 in London, represents a departure from the traditional industry approach of taking a pre-existing middleware product and shoehorning it into the individual operator’s requirements. Instead, the new service builds a hybrid client from the ground up, using open stack components based on HTML5 and QML to create a pre-integrated, optimised user experience.

Harnessing DCC Labs specialist expertise in building hybrid client stacks for STBs, Smart TVs and other connected devices, the new service is designed to deliver innovative new interactive services, alongside traditional broadcast services on both legacy and new hardware. It is hardware agnostic and comes complete with full lifecycle software support and the guarantee of a back-to-back contract for systems integrators.

TV operators and systems Integrators will also benefit from DCC Labs capability in ensuring that new software will run on both existing and legacy Set Top Boxes (STBs), mobile devices and smart TV’s.

This delivers significant capex savings on hardware replacement alongside the associated costs with ‘ripping and replacing’ legacy STBS. Providing a single point of contact and offering full lifecycle support, the new Freestyle service will also enable operators and integrators to benefit from a reduced total cost of ownership, the company said.

Marek Kielczewski, CEO of DCC Labs, said: “The best approach to middleware is to offer it as a service, rather than a product. The user interface (UI) enables the delivery of the necessary content and not as a standalone component but as an integrated whole, optimised to deliver the best user experience.

“We work closely with the customer to build a service that is going to optimise their objectives and deliver against KPIs. TV operators want to develop an innovative product roadmap to differentiate their offerings from competitors and we are there to work hand-in hand with them to develop customised and bespoke services that make them stand out from the crowd.”

Sony’s new HDC-4300 is the world’s first camera to use three 2/3-inch 4K image sensors. It supports the same B4-mount lenses as well as the same control surfaces as Sony’s HDC-2000 series cameras.

Sony’s next generation of HDC series camera technology provides the ability to use the high magnification wide zoom range lenses currently employed by HD 2/3-inch systems while maintaining an adequate depth of field to properly show all the action in live event broadcasting.

The existing HDLA-1500 series, control and shading systems, viewfinders and master set-up units are all interchangeable between the HD and 4K systems. Directors and operators can keep their approach to live events -- including camera angles, zoom ranges and iris settings – while using familiar camera technology.

“This camera provides 4K capabilities and a workflow that content producers are instantly familiar and comfortable with,” said Vivian Saldanha, business head, content creation sales and market development, Sony Professional Solutions MEA. “We’ve developed an approach that allows the large existing HDC series user base to employ 4K advantages such as 8x high frame rate and 4K cut-out and zoom while using a familiar infrastructure and signal path.”

The new HDC-4300 is capable of 4K/HD operation, with2x, 3x Super Slow Motion as standard, and higher speeds up to 8x available, to produce high-quality replays and specialty program effects.

The camera uses ultra-high-precision alignment technology to realize three 4K sensor on a new prism. This allows the support of the next-generation ITU-R BT.2020 broadcast standard’s widened color space for future-proof masters or post production options for today’s productions shown on tomorrow’s 4K services.

Standard large-format B4-mount lenses mount directly onto the HDC 4300. This gives broadcasters the flexibility needed for live sports broadcasts: 4K capabilities while maintaining their customary HD-lens operating styles.

Sony’s SZC-4001 software package (sold separately) allows broadcasters to take advantage of 4K capabilities.

The SZC-4002 software package (sold separately) enables the system to shoot full HD (1920 x 1080) at frame rates up to 479.52/400 fps, as well as 59.94/50, 119.88/100, and 179.82/150 fps. Users can save these high-frame-rate shots to Sony’s PWS-4400multiport 4K/HD Live Server.

The HDC-4300 accepts the same configurations as existing 4K live systems.

A BPU-4000 baseband processor unit receives the camera signals via SMPTE fiber and connects to an HDCU-2000 or 2500 camera control unit. This provides power and full intercom, tally, and return capabilities.

Users can seamlessly blend an HDC-4300-based system with existing HDC Series camera system. The HD signals from the HDC Series cameras and from the new camera system can be adjusted to match colorimetry.

The addition of other 4K products, such as the PWS-4400 multi-port 4K/HD Live server, a multi-format switcher capable of real-time 4K signal processing based on the MVS-8000X, and Sony’s new BVM-X300 4K OLED or PMW-X300 4K LCD monitors creates an end-to-end 4K live production solution.

DPA Microphones has revealed that it will be exhibiting the latest additions to its range of broadcast microphones at this year's upcoming IBC 2015 (booth 8:D70).

On show will be the new d:facto Interview Microphone, which was launched in April at NAB 2015 and is already garnering praise for its ability to perform in even the most demanding conditions.

With voice clarity, linearity and low handling/wind noise, this high-end handheld reporter’s mic is ideal for both outdoor or studio interview settings. The microphone features an omnidirectional 2006V capsule, based on DPA’s original 2006, but with sensitivity adjusted down 12 dB to accommodate typical interview mic and wireless handle sensitivities - ideal for handheld interview use.

In conjunction with its Dutch distributor Amptec, DPA will also be showing the recently launched d:fine in-ear broadcast headset microphone. Targeted at broadcast hosts and guests who use in-ear monitors to communicate with their producers backstage or to hear foldback from people interviewed outside the studio, the d:fine in-ear microphone is built on the same state-of-the-art capsules and mechanical design that have made DPA’s d:fine range popular.

This model incorporates two cables — microphone and in-ear — that run parallel to provide a neat and clean look. Ear pads in two different sizes are also included, with no audio leakage between the in-ear drivers and the microphone capsule, which can be either omnidirectional or directional. A steel spring construction at the ear hook offers quick mounting for any ear size, while the cable to the integrated in-ear plug(s) can be lengthened or shortened to suit the user. It is easy to adjust headset mount size and, by choosing between left and right ear orientation, it is even possible to give the broadcast host a ‘camera blind’ side.

DPA will also show its podium range, which includes the d:screet miniature podium microphone. Incorporating special interference tube technology that ensures exceptional directivity and off-axis rejection, the d:screet miniature podium microphone features a miniature capsule mounted on a delicate gooseneck that comes in several lengths for table mounting. It can even be used in a wireless configuration by employing the company’s adapter range, which is already used for other miniature microphones.

DPA's podium range also includes the d:dictate podium microphones, which feature modular capsules from DPA's d:dictate recording microphones. These are acclaimed for their exceptional linear frequency responses, high SPL and superior gain before feedback.

The company will complete its IBC 2015 line up by showing its full line of d:screet miniature, d:fine headset and d:vote instrument solutions, as well as the d:facto vocal microphone.

DPA and Amptec will also be running a daily competition at IBC, giving visitors the chance to win a DPA microphone. Anyone who visits the booth during the day and has their badge scanned will receive a pin. If they return at 5pm each day wearing their pin, they will be entered into the prize draw.

Bel Digital’s BM-A1-4SHD four channel audio monitor/de-embedder is already a firm favourite with broadcasters, now all of its features are available in a newly-launched larger 2U chassis, providing increased definition in metering and an increase in SPL.

With a reduction of both chassis depth (down to 200 mm) and overall weight, the new BM-A2-4SHD MKII is ideal for OB or Flyaway applications.

The BM-A2-4SHD MKII can de-embed any group of four channels of audio from one of two SDI sources (up to 3G SDI) and display the levels on the front panel meters, as well as providing stereo audio monitoring of any combination of the four channels.

In addition to the auto-detecting SDI inputs, the BM-A2-4SHD MKII has four balanced XLR analogue inputs and two AES3id BNCs. A re-clocked loop-through output is available for the selected SDI source, providing a convenient and cost-effective method of switching SDI feeds to an external monitor. Channels 1 to 4 of the selected source are also routed to two AES3id outputs. Therefore providing format conversion and SDI de-embedding facilities. In addition, the stereo audio monitor mix is available as a separate balanced feed at a pair of XLRs.

Simple to set up and use, like the BM-A1-4SHD, all source selection and main monitoring setup is done from individual controls on the front panel, without any need for menu navigation.

The BM-A2-4SHD MKII’s audio performance is tuned for maximum clarity and delivers a higher SPL compared to the more compact BM-A1-4SHD monitor. Users also have full flexibility in assigning any channel to left, right or both speakers (or neither), and automatic level attenuation compensates for monitoring multiple channels. A ¼” jack headphone output socket is provided on the front panel, which mutes the loudspeakers when in use. If external monitoring on larger speakers is required, the audio level at the rear panel analogue outputs may be configured to be either fixed or to follow the main volume control.

The 53-segment, tricolour LED bargraphs include user setup options to allow a choice of four scales and ballistics (including BBC or DIN PPM, VU and AES/EBU), as well as colour transition points and peak hold.

The front panel LCD provides signal status information of the selected source (including video format of the selected SDI signal and AES lock) and volume level indication.

The number of residential gateways, TV set-top boxes and other home broadband equipment in use that support the Broadband Forum’s TR-069 (CPE WAN Management Protocol) standard will reach 356 million in 2016, according to a new forecast by Ovum.

The trend is being driven by a growing number of service providers who embrace the management protocol to support burgeoning demand for ultrafast-broadband and smart-home services.

The forecast was commissioned by the Broadband Forum standards body responsible for TR-069 as part of a wide-reaching project that saw Ovum survey over 250 global industry executives, including over 100 in senior roles at broadband service providers, about their use of TR-069 and plans for the smart home.

TR-069 is a technical specification that defines a common communication protocol that enables broadband service providers to remotely configure devices, enable end-to-end delivery of new services, and then cost-effectively manage and support them.

Rob Gallagher, Ovum research director, said: “Our survey shows that service providers are already deriving significant value from TR-069, with over six out of ten reporting benefits such as simplified service delivery, faster fault resolution and lower installation costs.

“Adoption of TR-069 will accelerate as a growing number of DSL, fiber and cable service providers alike bake technology into their ultrafast-broadband, multiplay bundling and smart-home strategies.

With the number of connected devices and applications set to grow, they see a clear need to better visualise, support and control activity on the home network, with eight out of ten stating that TR-069 will play a significant role in their smart-home strategies.”

Robin Mersh, CEO of the Broadband Forum, said: “The Forum is delighted to see the continuing growth and expanded use of the TR-069 CPE WAN Management Protocol in broadband operators’ networks and the exciting opportunities that exist as the needs of the connected home move from managing devices to managing services. The survey brings this vibrant market sector to the attention of the whole industry and shows how the complex technical work of TR-069 is making a real practical difference.”

Ovum’s estimate of 269 million TR-069-enabled devices by end-2014 marks an increase on a projection of 250 million made by the global research and advisory firm as part of a 2012 study commissioned by the Broadband Forum. Ovum revised its estimates upwards largely to reflect moves by a growing number of service providers to take greater control over the residential gateway as they accelerate take-up of ultrafast-broadband and multiplay bundles.

Residential gateways will account for the majority of TR-069-enabled CPE, rising from just under 200 million at the end of 2014 to 255 million at the end of 2016. During this period, the percentage of fixed-broadband connections equipped with a TR-069-enabled residential gateway will increase from 26% to 30%. TV set-top boxes will be the second-largest category, rising from 46 million at the end of 2014 to 69 million at the end of 2016. More findings from the survey can be found within the ‘Efficient and Automated Smart Home Rollout’ whitepaper, which was sponsored by Axiros.

"In just a single rack unit, the MicroN offers a highly versatile signal interface that can be used in productions of every size and complexity," said Lars Höhmann, Skype & MediorNet product manager at Riedel Communications.

"For the largest media networks built on our MediorNet transport devices, MicroN can serve as a breakout box for a MetroN router and extend connectivity beyond the fiber I/Os to any type of video and audio I/O required," he added. "Or, MicroN can simply work with a MetroN router, with other MicroN units, or in a standalone point-to-point configuration to provide an economical solution for small- to medium-sized productions. And, like the other members of the MediorNet family, MicroN has powerful built-in signal processing features that eliminate the need for many external devices."

In a compact 1RU form factor for rackmount applications, the MicroN offers full support for 10G high-speed video, 3G-SDI video, MADI audio, and Gigabit Ethernet. The system includes an integrated video, audio, and data router and sync reference I/Os, including black burst, tri-level, and word clock. Built-in video and audio processing capabilities include automatic format detection, a frame synchronizer and framestore on all video outputs, a 16-channel audio embedder/de-embedder, a test pattern generator, on-screen and system VITC displays, an integrated sample-rate converter, and audio/video delay lines. The MicroN is powered by a redundant, wide-range AC power supply and also features temperature monitoring and adaptive fan control.

Interconnecting MicroN nodes in a meshed fashion leads to a very scalable, decentralised video routing application. This approach can be used as a replacement for small to medium sized routers and offers a very flexible system design, allowing users to extend the router capacity in both signal capacity and distributed system locations by adding MicroN nodes to the network. Operating in standalone mode, the MicroN can act as a 12x12 router and audio embedder/de-embedder with MADI SRC and delay, and also provides video frame sync and delay.

In a point-to-point deployment, multiple paired MicroN units can provide all of these capabilities plus support for up to 12 bi-directional SDI I/Os, two MADI I/Os, and a Gigabit Ethernet link. Multiple MicroNs can be integrated as a central video router for redundant processing of up to 192x192 HD-SDI signals, and they can also be deployed in a distributed fashion as a decentralised video router.

Thomson Video Networks has launch the FUZE-1 Playout System, a new system that integrates the traditional playout functions of a channel in a box (CiaB) with premium-quality encoding and transcoding for broadcast and OTT delivery.

Ideal for applications such as ad insertion, branding, disaster recovery, and EAS insertion, FUZE-1 provides a rich playout infrastructure together with the ability to process audio and video either directly in the compressed domain or by going back to baseband and re-encoding, the company said.

"Recent years have seen an explosion of new linear TV channels that require their own distinct graphic identity. At the same time, broadcasters know that OTT distribution of premium channels is a must if they want to stay relevant and competitive. Channel-in-a-box solutions are a big step forward, enabling broadcasters to move away from complex and expensive multi-vendor infrastructures for uncompressed playout. But in a typical CiaB system, the playout and compression functions operate as independent silos," said Eric Gallier, vice president, marketing, Thomson Video Networks.

"With FUZE-1, we're breaking down these silos with a versatile and cost-effective solution for MPEG-2, MPEG-4, and HEVC video playout on-premises or in the cloud. As the newest component in our Behind Every Screen® strategy, FUZE-1 fulfills the acquisition, branding, ad insertion, and compression requirements of today's most sophisticated multi-screen media operations."

FUZE-1 is a software-based solution for integrated playout of linear SD and HD television or multi-screen channels as well as broadcast and OTT delivery. Powered by the Thomson Video Networks MediaFlexOS video operating system, FUZE-1 provides advanced graphics, channel switching, sophisticated built-in automation, an integrated asset manager, and premium software transcoding capabilities.

FUZE-1 enables live and file-based playback, advanced graphics overlays including animated bitmaps or text crawls, and video effects such as fade in/out or video squeeze-back. FUZE-1 features a best-of-breed 1-RU IT server equipped with a secure storage system and a set of IP, ASI, and/or SDI interface options.

Using the unique clustering, load balancing, and internal redundancy capabilities of MediaFlexOS, FUZE-1 can be deployed either on-premises at data centers or in virtualised environments.

2wcom, a German manufacturer of broadcast technology products, has just launched its new FM02 FM receiver.

The receiver has the ability to perform the multiple roles of demodulation, source-switching for FM backup, and FM/RDS parameter monitoring.

The FM02 can be used in a variety of ways to meet a range of broadcasting scenarios. The dual-channel capability allows the unit to receive one FM signal for re-broadcasting, while monitoring a second FM signal with the second tuner; or to receive the same signal on both tuners with one acting as a backup. A high-quality FM tuner is key to the FM02’s specification, providing it with substantially better FM performance than is typical in competing demodulator products.

For source-switching in a backup solution, the FM02 receives an MPX signal and loops it through directly to the output. In case of failure the FM02 uses its tuner as a back-up solution to receive the MPX signal off the air. Robust performance is provided by the unit’s ability to loop through the signal even during a power failure. Extending the versatility of the unit still further, the FM02 can be used as part of a monitoring solution for both FM and RDS parameters.

Offering easy remote control via IP and snmp, the FM02 also offers remote audio quality monitoring through its built-in mp3 streaming capability.

“Like many of the products we have developed recently in response to customer requests, the FM02 is a sophisticated device that can be used in so many different ways,” said Werner Drews, managing director of 2wcom. “A high degree of versatility is very valuable to customers today, because it saves investment and operational costs, and accommodates a wide variety of network configurations and strategies, and the ability to make network changes without further cost.”

The FMC02 is a 19” unit with dual tuners and dual antenna inputs.

Thomson Video Networks is conducting France's first demonstration of high-quality video broadcast of five HD channels in a DTTV 24.8 Mbps multiplex, enabled by the company's ViBE EM4000 premium HD/SD encoder and NetProcessor multiplexer/video processor.

The demonstration, which began on Nov. 30 and will continue through Friday, Dec. 5, is being managed by the HD Forum at the NRJ main broadcasting facility in Paris.

Thomson Video Networks created the demonstration to show how advanced compression technology can be used to broadcast five HD channels, instead of the three currently used today in France, in a DTTV 24.8 Mbps multiplex without compromising video quality.

With 1080ix1920 HD content provided by five French broadcasters — Arte, Canal+, France Televisions, NRJ, and TF1 — the ViBE EM4000 encodes the video in MPEG-4 VBR (statistical multiplexing). The HD content is then multiplexed by the NetProcessor, modulated in DVB-T, and displayed on five 46-inch and 55-inch televisions with built-in decoder capabilities.

"Worldwide, broadcasters on DTTV platforms are looking for the best picture quality at the lowest possible bandwidth. In this demonstration, we're showing how dramatic advancements in compression technology are providing a migration path to HD and offering a better experience for viewers," said Claude Perron, CTO at Thomson Video Networks. "Although we're focusing on the French DTTV platform here, the technology can be applied to any DTTV platform using the EM4000 and NetProcessor."

Taking over Frankfurt, Germany for three days, the World Club Dome, developed and organised by BigCityBeats, sees ravers come together under one spectacular roof to enjoy the latest and greatest in Electronic Dance Music (EDM).

BigCityBeats has long been synonymous with major opening and closing shows designed by its initiator and organiser Bernd Breiter. This year, both ceremonies featured a new light show – designed by A&O Creative under the direction of lighting designer Manfred “Ollie” Olma.

For the World Club Dome live shows, the company assembled the largest constellation of luminaires ever deployed for an event of its kind. the enabled A&O Creative, the creative department of Bremen-based lighting specialists A&O Technology, under Olma's direction, delivered its newly conceived light show “Big City Lights”.

The resulting show flooded the arena with impressive images of light. The video content was created by Saskia Olma, whilst Marco Niedermeier, CEO of A&O Technology, was active in the role of executive producer.

Olma reveals: “We provided the illumination from inside, yet to spectators it appeared as though it were happening outside the arena. It is not just an architectonic 3D light but extends into 4D and 5D. Spectators are given the impression that they are travelling in time. Based on the interaction of lighting, video, laser and pyrotechnics, the guiding leitmotif for the lighting design stemmed from the doctrine of the Four Elements. It was supported by powerful sound."

In all, A&O Creative installed almost a hundred FALCON searchlights from event partner A&O Technology in the main stage area of the Commerzbank Arena, which for three days became the world’s biggest club. Among them were a LED band made up of Video FALCONs at the front of the main stage. FALCON BEAM and FLOWER units completed the multi-level constellation.

According to the organisers, some 100,000 visitors (up to 40,000 per day) attended at least one of the shows over the course of the weekend, occupying the 500,000sqm party arena to hear some of the most famous EDM DJs and live acts in the world, including stars such as Avicii, David Guetta, Faithless and Hardwell.


Bernd Breiter, CEO of BigCityBeats, commented: “For the BigCityBeats World Club Dome, we developed an opening and closing show with maximum emotional impact. And thanks to A&O, a magnificent team and incredible equipment (including a multitude of high-powered lamps), we managed to create together a new type of spectacle. The BigCityBeats World Club Dome has drawn a massive response worldwide. I’d like to thank most warmly A&O, Marco Niedermeier, Ollie Olma and the entire team that contributed to the realisation of my dream."

With a T-handle, the clamp can be tightened much faster because it is more ergonomically friendly to the hand than the typical nut used on most swivel couplers – thereby shaving time off the rigging process.

Another convenient feature on the CTC-50SC is that the end of the bolt is flared so that the T-handle and washer cannot spin all the way off and become lost.

The CTC-50SC coupler features a 360° wraparound design that completely encircles the truss, providing extra stability and security. An added advantage of this design is that it won’t cause any scratching or damage to truss surfaces, extending the life of the truss.

Made of rugged extruded aluminum, the CTC-50SC is built for long-lasting reliability. It is TÜV approved for safe, worry-free installation in any application. The CTC-50SC is designed to fit Trusst’s CT290 Truss Series and other major brands of truss with 50mm main chords as well as 2” steel or aluminum pipes. The clamp weighs 1.3kg and has dimensions 292 x 50 x 114mm.

Dubai could be the next target for live-event specialist Flash, which is behind events such as the Abu Dhabi Formula 1 Grand Prix and Yasalam festival.

The company, based in Abu Dhabi, is known for the success of it’s events in the capital but is looking beyond the emirate’s borders to new territory, operations director Lee Charteris told DPME.com.

“I think [Dubai] would be a natural progression for us. We want to entertain people and there are people there to be entertained so why wouldn’t we do that,” he said.

He expressed interest in Dubai’s venues but pointed to a ‘as well as rather than instead of’ situation that would see shows in both of the UAE’s major cities.

“I dream of a scenario when someone plays in Abu Dhabi and then drives up the road and plays in Dubai. Why not? That happens in lots of other countries in the world.”

But according to Charteris, this is long-term plan.

“It depends on the artist obviously, I think there’s people that could sell [shows in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi] but I think you would be pushing it right now to do that. But I think it’s only a matter of time,” he says.

And this could mean more artists visiting the region.

“If we could get into having artists that played maybe Doha, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Muscat, wherever it was, then we would be able to bring in more artists because the one thing about destination shows is that it’s quite hard to convince people to come because they need three or four days out of their lives, as opposed to if they were on tour, it being one day of their life,” he explains.

And it’s not just different locations on the cards for Flash but more high-tech shows. Charteris is enthusiastic about new technology and said the UAE could see some interesting additions to the firm’s concerts before year-end.

“I’m always looking at new ways to entertain, and I think 3D, while still in its infancy, will definitely become a part of shows. We’ve already had some discussions about hologram technology with one of the acts that wants to come over here. They would be here but it allows them to be in more than one place on the stage. So that’s something that’s being battered back and forth for one of this year’s acts,” he said

Dolby Laboratories recently partnered with Thomson Video Networks and STMicroelectronics (ST) to demonstrate the first implementation of a complete encoding-decoding chain for HD and Ultra HD broadcast based on the new Dolby AC-4 audio codec.

At the heart of a demonstration at the Dolby ATSC 3.0 showcase in Atlanta is Thomson Video Networks' ViBE VS7000 multi-screen encoding/transcoding platform and the ST Ultra HD STiH418 System-on-Chip (SoC).

Thomson Video Networks demonstrates high-efficiency video coding (HEVC) for Ultra HD video delivery featuring the integration of the Dolby AC-4 encoder with the ViBE VS7000 and a set-top box (STB) powered by ST's HEVC-capable SoC.

“The Dolby AC-4 audio format addresses the current and future needs of next-generation video and audio entertainment services,” said Giles Baker, SVP, broadcast business group, Dolby Laboratories. “It enables the distribution of future generations of media content and experiences across the broadest range of devices with far better bandwidth efficiencies compared to today's solutions.”

Eric Gallier, vice president of marketing, Thomson Video Networks, added: “The emerging Dolby AC-4 codec is rapidly becoming a new standard for next-generation audio encoding; in fact, it's known as the audio counterpart to the emerging HEVC video codec. Working together, AC-4 and HEVC provide a coherent and efficient solution to the challenge of transporting Ultra HD content on television networks.

“As one of the first-ever worldwide implementations of HEVC, our ViBE VS7000 is the ideal platform with which to demonstrate the ground breaking capabilities of Dolby AC-4 and ST's SoC for next-generation Ultra HD video offerings on any type of device and over any type of network."

available in white.,[total_comment] => 0,[articleTags] => 3821,[pct] => 1,[content] =>

Elation Professional has launched the latest addition to its Colour Series of colour-changing LED luminaires, the Colour Pendant - a highly versatile wash light that allows for dynamic control of stage or house lighting levels in an energy-efficient, intelligent downlighting fixture.

The Colour Pendant houses 36 long-life 3W RGBW LEDs for fully blended colour transformations or projections of variable shades of white light. The RGBW LED is capable of emitting a wide palette of colours from saturates to more subtle pastels, making the Colour Pendant an excellent colour matching unit.

Its uniform flat-field output, 3,100 lumens of power and 41° beam angle make for a highly effective wash luminaire whether flooding a stage or studio in hues of color or functionally washing a venue in shades of white light. Full range dimming with selectable dimming curves, strobe and colour macro effects enhance its dynamic capabilities.

The Colour Pendant is convection cooled for silent operation (ideal for noise sensitive environments) and flicker free projection means it can be used in all types of broadcast situations including TV, film and video. It includes removable pendant and yoke mounting brackets for flexible set up and a white model is available through special order.

The Colour Pendant is controllable via 11 DMX channel modes (1 / 3 / 4x2 / 5x2 / 6x2 / 7 / 8 / 10 channel) and is RDM (Remote Device Management) protocol capable. It houses an internal E-Fly extended range wireless DMX transceiver for easier setup with less cable mess. A 4-button control panel with LCD display makes for easy navigation through DMX and manual settings and an auto-sensing power supply covers worldwide voltages and frequencies.

The Colour Pendant is also compact, measuring 14.7” x 9.9” x 12.0” (374mm x 252.5mm x 308.8mm) and weighing only 12.0 lbs (5.4kg). It offers all the benefits of LED like greater reliability, less maintenance and increased energy efficiency (only 110W max power consumption) for a lower cost of ownership.

Adamson Systems Engineering recently announced that registration for its popular Blueprint AV software is now free of charge to members of the professional audio industry.

James Oliver, director of marketing and sales for Adamson, commented: “We've had a banner year in terms of the growth of the company, so we decided to make Blueprint free of charge to thank all of our current and future customers. People are hearing the buzz that surrounds Adamson and now they can experience why that is happening. It’s time to let everyone try out the software that when paired with Adamson loudspeakers provides system designers with one of the most powerful tools in our industry.”

Blueprint AV allows system designers and technicians to build a simple or very complex listening area, hang multiple arrays, simulate response with a variety of acoustic measurement tools, and provide a detailed and accurate rigging plot that can be exported to DXF files for easy transfer to the rigging team.

Users can choose the quick and effective 2D mode to easily determine optimal splay settings for their arrays within their space, or they can opt for the highly detailed 3D mode, which allows for a wide variety of polygonal shapes to easily and accurately build complex spaces. The software also provides a large variety of simulation options.

Training for the software is available to users through online tutorial videos – click here – or through more in-depth modules with the company.

Having discontinued its previous modelling software, Shooter, in June 2015, Adamson will no longer offer any further updates for the product. The company suggests that those utilising Adamson Shooter now register for a free Blueprint AV account instead.

In late 2014, Symetrix announced extensive new support for third-party Dante devices from Shure, Audio-Technica, Attero Tech and Stewart Audio in version 3.0 of its SymNet Composer open architecture design software. Now, the DSP specialist has expanded its configuration opportunities even further with the release of SymNet Composer 4.0.

With SymNet Composer, integrators can use a single piece of software to streamline their programming, network discovery and Dante signal routing of SymNet hardware and multiple third-party products. The latest software version extends this capability to encompass Attero Tech’s newly-released unDUSB Dante interface.

Trent Wagner, senior product manager, Symetrix, explains: “Attero Tech’s unDUSB is a very handy, driver-free 2x2 USB-to-Dante interface that will be deployed primarily for computer-based applications in conferencing systems such as Skype and Microsoft Lync. It can also assist with playback and recording on a PC, so should be very useful for the purposes of archiving meetings and recording courtroom sessions.”

Additionally, SymNet Composer 4.0 offers full support for Symetrix’ latest ARC series wall panel remote. Expected to begin shipping shortly, ARC-3 will arrive in a single SKU supporting both surface and flush-mounting, and incorporates a brand new capacitive touch interface with LED feedback, as well as a multi-lingual graphics-capable OLED display.

DPA Microphones has revealed that it will be exhibiting the latest additions to its range of broadcast microphones at this year's upcoming IBC 2015 (booth 8:D70).

On show will be the new d:facto Interview Microphone, which was launched in April at NAB 2015 and is already garnering praise for its ability to perform in even the most demanding conditions.

With voice clarity, linearity and low handling/wind noise, this high-end handheld reporter’s mic is ideal for both outdoor or studio interview settings. The microphone features an omnidirectional 2006V capsule, based on DPA’s original 2006, but with sensitivity adjusted down 12 dB to accommodate typical interview mic and wireless handle sensitivities - ideal for handheld interview use.

In conjunction with its Dutch distributor Amptec, DPA will also be showing the recently launched d:fine in-ear broadcast headset microphone. Targeted at broadcast hosts and guests who use in-ear monitors to communicate with their producers backstage or to hear foldback from people interviewed outside the studio, the d:fine in-ear microphone is built on the same state-of-the-art capsules and mechanical design that have made DPA’s d:fine range popular.

This model incorporates two cables — microphone and in-ear — that run parallel to provide a neat and clean look. Ear pads in two different sizes are also included, with no audio leakage between the in-ear drivers and the microphone capsule, which can be either omnidirectional or directional. A steel spring construction at the ear hook offers quick mounting for any ear size, while the cable to the integrated in-ear plug(s) can be lengthened or shortened to suit the user. It is easy to adjust headset mount size and, by choosing between left and right ear orientation, it is even possible to give the broadcast host a ‘camera blind’ side.

DPA will also show its podium range, which includes the d:screet miniature podium microphone. Incorporating special interference tube technology that ensures exceptional directivity and off-axis rejection, the d:screet miniature podium microphone features a miniature capsule mounted on a delicate gooseneck that comes in several lengths for table mounting. It can even be used in a wireless configuration by employing the company’s adapter range, which is already used for other miniature microphones.

DPA's podium range also includes the d:dictate podium microphones, which feature modular capsules from DPA's d:dictate recording microphones. These are acclaimed for their exceptional linear frequency responses, high SPL and superior gain before feedback.

The company will complete its IBC 2015 line up by showing its full line of d:screet miniature, d:fine headset and d:vote instrument solutions, as well as the d:facto vocal microphone.

DPA and Amptec will also be running a daily competition at IBC, giving visitors the chance to win a DPA microphone. Anyone who visits the booth during the day and has their badge scanned will receive a pin. If they return at 5pm each day wearing their pin, they will be entered into the prize draw.

Taking over Frankfurt, Germany for three days, the World Club Dome, developed and organised by BigCityBeats, sees ravers come together under one spectacular roof to enjoy the latest and greatest in Electronic Dance Music (EDM).

BigCityBeats has long been synonymous with major opening and closing shows designed by its initiator and organiser Bernd Breiter. This year, both ceremonies featured a new light show – designed by A&O Creative under the direction of lighting designer Manfred “Ollie” Olma.

For the World Club Dome live shows, the company assembled the largest constellation of luminaires ever deployed for an event of its kind. the enabled A&O Creative, the creative department of Bremen-based lighting specialists A&O Technology, under Olma's direction, delivered its newly conceived light show “Big City Lights”.

The resulting show flooded the arena with impressive images of light. The video content was created by Saskia Olma, whilst Marco Niedermeier, CEO of A&O Technology, was active in the role of executive producer.

Olma reveals: “We provided the illumination from inside, yet to spectators it appeared as though it were happening outside the arena. It is not just an architectonic 3D light but extends into 4D and 5D. Spectators are given the impression that they are travelling in time. Based on the interaction of lighting, video, laser and pyrotechnics, the guiding leitmotif for the lighting design stemmed from the doctrine of the Four Elements. It was supported by powerful sound."

In all, A&O Creative installed almost a hundred FALCON searchlights from event partner A&O Technology in the main stage area of the Commerzbank Arena, which for three days became the world’s biggest club. Among them were a LED band made up of Video FALCONs at the front of the main stage. FALCON BEAM and FLOWER units completed the multi-level constellation.

According to the organisers, some 100,000 visitors (up to 40,000 per day) attended at least one of the shows over the course of the weekend, occupying the 500,000sqm party arena to hear some of the most famous EDM DJs and live acts in the world, including stars such as Avicii, David Guetta, Faithless and Hardwell.


Bernd Breiter, CEO of BigCityBeats, commented: “For the BigCityBeats World Club Dome, we developed an opening and closing show with maximum emotional impact. And thanks to A&O, a magnificent team and incredible equipment (including a multitude of high-powered lamps), we managed to create together a new type of spectacle. The BigCityBeats World Club Dome has drawn a massive response worldwide. I’d like to thank most warmly A&O, Marco Niedermeier, Ollie Olma and the entire team that contributed to the realisation of my dream."

Trusst has introduced a new swivel coupler clamp, model CTC-50SC, that is rated to handle heavy-duty loads up to 1,650 pounds (750kg) while providing flexibility, safety and easy installation.

Designed to connect two sections of 50mm truss or piping, the CTC-50SC features captive T-handles that make installation quick and easy. With a T-handle, the clamp can be tightened much faster because it is more ergonomically friendly to the hand than the typical nut used on most swivel couplers – thereby shaving time off the rigging process.

Another convenient feature on the CTC-50SC is that the end of the bolt is flared so that the T-handle and washer cannot spin all the way off and become lost.

The CTC-50SC coupler features a 360° wraparound design that completely encircles the truss, providing extra stability and security. An added advantage of this design is that it won’t cause any scratching or damage to truss surfaces, extending the life of the truss.

Made of rugged extruded aluminum, the CTC-50SC is built for long-lasting reliability. It is TÜV approved for safe, worry-free installation in any application. The CTC-50SC is designed to fit Trusst’s CT290 Truss Series and other major brands of truss with 50mm main chords as well as 2” steel or aluminum pipes. The clamp weighs 1.3kg and has dimensions 292 x 50 x 114mm.

The new service, which is being unveiled at TV Connect 2015 in London, represents a departure from the traditional industry approach of taking a pre-existing middleware product and shoehorning it into the individual operator’s requirements. Instead, the new service builds a hybrid client from the ground up, using open stack components based on HTML5 and QML to create a pre-integrated, optimised user experience.

Harnessing DCC Labs specialist expertise in building hybrid client stacks for STBs, Smart TVs and other connected devices, the new service is designed to deliver innovative new interactive services, alongside traditional broadcast services on both legacy and new hardware. It is hardware agnostic and comes complete with full lifecycle software support and the guarantee of a back-to-back contract for systems integrators.

TV operators and systems Integrators will also benefit from DCC Labs capability in ensuring that new software will run on both existing and legacy Set Top Boxes (STBs), mobile devices and smart TV’s.

This delivers significant capex savings on hardware replacement alongside the associated costs with ‘ripping and replacing’ legacy STBS. Providing a single point of contact and offering full lifecycle support, the new Freestyle service will also enable operators and integrators to benefit from a reduced total cost of ownership, the company said.

Marek Kielczewski, CEO of DCC Labs, said: “The best approach to middleware is to offer it as a service, rather than a product. The user interface (UI) enables the delivery of the necessary content and not as a standalone component but as an integrated whole, optimised to deliver the best user experience.

“We work closely with the customer to build a service that is going to optimise their objectives and deliver against KPIs. TV operators want to develop an innovative product roadmap to differentiate their offerings from competitors and we are there to work hand-in hand with them to develop customised and bespoke services that make them stand out from the crowd.”

Sony’s new HDC-4300 is the world’s first camera to use three 2/3-inch 4K image sensors. It supports the same B4-mount lenses as well as the same control surfaces as Sony’s HDC-2000 series cameras.

Sony’s next generation of HDC series camera technology provides the ability to use the high magnification wide zoom range lenses currently employed by HD 2/3-inch systems while maintaining an adequate depth of field to properly show all the action in live event broadcasting.

The existing HDLA-1500 series, control and shading systems, viewfinders and master set-up units are all interchangeable between the HD and 4K systems. Directors and operators can keep their approach to live events -- including camera angles, zoom ranges and iris settings – while using familiar camera technology.

“This camera provides 4K capabilities and a workflow that content producers are instantly familiar and comfortable with,” said Vivian Saldanha, business head, content creation sales and market development, Sony Professional Solutions MEA. “We’ve developed an approach that allows the large existing HDC series user base to employ 4K advantages such as 8x high frame rate and 4K cut-out and zoom while using a familiar infrastructure and signal path.”

The new HDC-4300 is capable of 4K/HD operation, with2x, 3x Super Slow Motion as standard, and higher speeds up to 8x available, to produce high-quality replays and specialty program effects.

The camera uses ultra-high-precision alignment technology to realize three 4K sensor on a new prism. This allows the support of the next-generation ITU-R BT.2020 broadcast standard’s widened color space for future-proof masters or post production options for today’s productions shown on tomorrow’s 4K services.

Standard large-format B4-mount lenses mount directly onto the HDC 4300. This gives broadcasters the flexibility needed for live sports broadcasts: 4K capabilities while maintaining their customary HD-lens operating styles.

Sony’s SZC-4001 software package (sold separately) allows broadcasters to take advantage of 4K capabilities.

The SZC-4002 software package (sold separately) enables the system to shoot full HD (1920 x 1080) at frame rates up to 479.52/400 fps, as well as 59.94/50, 119.88/100, and 179.82/150 fps. Users can save these high-frame-rate shots to Sony’s PWS-4400multiport 4K/HD Live Server.

The HDC-4300 accepts the same configurations as existing 4K live systems.

A BPU-4000 baseband processor unit receives the camera signals via SMPTE fiber and connects to an HDCU-2000 or 2500 camera control unit. This provides power and full intercom, tally, and return capabilities.

Users can seamlessly blend an HDC-4300-based system with existing HDC Series camera system. The HD signals from the HDC Series cameras and from the new camera system can be adjusted to match colorimetry.

The addition of other 4K products, such as the PWS-4400 multi-port 4K/HD Live server, a multi-format switcher capable of real-time 4K signal processing based on the MVS-8000X, and Sony’s new BVM-X300 4K OLED or PMW-X300 4K LCD monitors creates an end-to-end 4K live production solution.

The HDC-4300 4K/HD live camera system is planned to be available in summer of 2015.

Elation Professional has launched the latest addition to its Colour Series of colour-changing LED luminaires, the Colour Pendant - a highly versatile wash light that allows for dynamic control of stage or house lighting levels in an energy-efficient, intelligent downlighting fixture.

The Colour Pendant houses 36 long-life 3W RGBW LEDs for fully blended colour transformations or projections of variable shades of white light. The RGBW LED is capable of emitting a wide palette of colours from saturates to more subtle pastels, making the Colour Pendant an excellent colour matching unit.

Its uniform flat-field output, 3,100 lumens of power and 41° beam angle make for a highly effective wash luminaire whether flooding a stage or studio in hues of color or functionally washing a venue in shades of white light. Full range dimming with selectable dimming curves, strobe and colour macro effects enhance its dynamic capabilities.

The Colour Pendant is convection cooled for silent operation (ideal for noise sensitive environments) and flicker free projection means it can be used in all types of broadcast situations including TV, film and video. It includes removable pendant and yoke mounting brackets for flexible set up and a white model is available through special order.

The Colour Pendant is controllable via 11 DMX channel modes (1 / 3 / 4x2 / 5x2 / 6x2 / 7 / 8 / 10 channel) and is RDM (Remote Device Management) protocol capable. It houses an internal E-Fly extended range wireless DMX transceiver for easier setup with less cable mess. A 4-button control panel with LCD display makes for easy navigation through DMX and manual settings and an auto-sensing power supply covers worldwide voltages and frequencies.

The Colour Pendant is also compact, measuring 14.7” x 9.9” x 12.0” (374mm x 252.5mm x 308.8mm) and weighing only 12.0 lbs (5.4kg). It offers all the benefits of LED like greater reliability, less maintenance and increased energy efficiency (only 110W max power consumption) for a lower cost of ownership.

DPA Microphones has revealed that it will be exhibiting the latest additions to its range of broadcast microphones at this year's upcoming IBC 2015 (booth 8:D70).

On show will be the new d:facto Interview Microphone, which was launched in April at NAB 2015 and is already garnering praise for its ability to perform in even the most demanding conditions.

With voice clarity, linearity and low handling/wind noise, this high-end handheld reporter’s mic is ideal for both outdoor or studio interview settings. The microphone features an omnidirectional 2006V capsule, based on DPA’s original 2006, but with sensitivity adjusted down 12 dB to accommodate typical interview mic and wireless handle sensitivities - ideal for handheld interview use.

In conjunction with its Dutch distributor Amptec, DPA will also be showing the recently launched d:fine in-ear broadcast headset microphone. Targeted at broadcast hosts and guests who use in-ear monitors to communicate with their producers backstage or to hear foldback from people interviewed outside the studio, the d:fine in-ear microphone is built on the same state-of-the-art capsules and mechanical design that have made DPA’s d:fine range popular.

This model incorporates two cables — microphone and in-ear — that run parallel to provide a neat and clean look. Ear pads in two different sizes are also included, with no audio leakage between the in-ear drivers and the microphone capsule, which can be either omnidirectional or directional. A steel spring construction at the ear hook offers quick mounting for any ear size, while the cable to the integrated in-ear plug(s) can be lengthened or shortened to suit the user. It is easy to adjust headset mount size and, by choosing between left and right ear orientation, it is even possible to give the broadcast host a ‘camera blind’ side.

DPA will also show its podium range, which includes the d:screet miniature podium microphone. Incorporating special interference tube technology that ensures exceptional directivity and off-axis rejection, the d:screet miniature podium microphone features a miniature capsule mounted on a delicate gooseneck that comes in several lengths for table mounting. It can even be used in a wireless configuration by employing the company’s adapter range, which is already used for other miniature microphones.

DPA's podium range also includes the d:dictate podium microphones, which feature modular capsules from DPA's d:dictate recording microphones. These are acclaimed for their exceptional linear frequency responses, high SPL and superior gain before feedback.

The company will complete its IBC 2015 line up by showing its full line of d:screet miniature, d:fine headset and d:vote instrument solutions, as well as the d:facto vocal microphone.

DPA and Amptec will also be running a daily competition at IBC, giving visitors the chance to win a DPA microphone. Anyone who visits the booth during the day and has their badge scanned will receive a pin. If they return at 5pm each day wearing their pin, they will be entered into the prize draw.

“Now in its third generation, our innovative line of Digital Xtreme matrix card cage systems provide unparalleled flexibility by giving installers a wide range of input and output options to better satisfy today's high-speed media requirements,” said Paul Harris, CEO, Aurora Multimedia. “Shown at InfoComm for the very first time, the new 4K devices further facilitate the selection, control, and delivery of any digital content, providing powerful capabilities for any restaurant, sports bar, conference center, house of worship, or other multiroom facility application.”

The units also introduce new features such as the integration of Aurora Multimedia's QXT touch panel control engine as the devices' main interface. Increasing ease-of-use, the units' front panels now house the new QXT-700 touch panel, offering control for matrix capabilities in addition to full system control by adding IP, RS232, IR, relays, and DIO ports directly onto the units.

Further major updates include the addition of an embedded 1G network switch — allowing Ethernet to pass directly over HDBaseT inputs and outputs — streamlining wiring infrastructure throughout any facility. To simplify the installation process even further, the DXM-G3 system also provides Power over HDBaseT (PoH) for all Aurora Multimedia HDBaseT peripherals — HDBaseT Wall plates and Receivers — as well as audio breakaway switching for complete flexibility within multizone audio setups.

Aurora Multimedia's third generation of card cages also provides DXM-G3 frame scaling to fit any application — providing customers with three frame sizes as well as the ability to partially fill frames to meet particular job requirements and lower costs. In addition, the devices offer a multitude of I/O card combinations such as four-channel HDMI, HDBaseT, Fiber, and SDI.

Bel Digital’s BM-A1-4SHD four channel audio monitor/de-embedder is already a firm favourite with broadcasters, now all of its features are available in a newly-launched larger 2U chassis, providing increased definition in metering and an increase in SPL.

With a reduction of both chassis depth (down to 200 mm) and overall weight, the new BM-A2-4SHD MKII is ideal for OB or Flyaway applications.

The BM-A2-4SHD MKII can de-embed any group of four channels of audio from one of two SDI sources (up to 3G SDI) and display the levels on the front panel meters, as well as providing stereo audio monitoring of any combination of the four channels.

In addition to the auto-detecting SDI inputs, the BM-A2-4SHD MKII has four balanced XLR analogue inputs and two AES3id BNCs. A re-clocked loop-through output is available for the selected SDI source, providing a convenient and cost-effective method of switching SDI feeds to an external monitor. Channels 1 to 4 of the selected source are also routed to two AES3id outputs. Therefore providing format conversion and SDI de-embedding facilities. In addition, the stereo audio monitor mix is available as a separate balanced feed at a pair of XLRs.

Simple to set up and use, like the BM-A1-4SHD, all source selection and main monitoring setup is done from individual controls on the front panel, without any need for menu navigation.

The BM-A2-4SHD MKII’s audio performance is tuned for maximum clarity and delivers a higher SPL compared to the more compact BM-A1-4SHD monitor. Users also have full flexibility in assigning any channel to left, right or both speakers (or neither), and automatic level attenuation compensates for monitoring multiple channels. A ¼” jack headphone output socket is provided on the front panel, which mutes the loudspeakers when in use. If external monitoring on larger speakers is required, the audio level at the rear panel analogue outputs may be configured to be either fixed or to follow the main volume control.

The 53-segment, tricolour LED bargraphs include user setup options to allow a choice of four scales and ballistics (including BBC or DIN PPM, VU and AES/EBU), as well as colour transition points and peak hold.

The front panel LCD provides signal status information of the selected source (including video format of the selected SDI signal and AES lock) and volume level indication.

The number of residential gateways, TV set-top boxes and other home broadband equipment in use that support the Broadband Forum’s TR-069 (CPE WAN Management Protocol) standard will reach 356 million in 2016, according to a new forecast by Ovum.

The trend is being driven by a growing number of service providers who embrace the management protocol to support burgeoning demand for ultrafast-broadband and smart-home services.

The forecast was commissioned by the Broadband Forum standards body responsible for TR-069 as part of a wide-reaching project that saw Ovum survey over 250 global industry executives, including over 100 in senior roles at broadband service providers, about their use of TR-069 and plans for the smart home.

TR-069 is a technical specification that defines a common communication protocol that enables broadband service providers to remotely configure devices, enable end-to-end delivery of new services, and then cost-effectively manage and support them.

Rob Gallagher, Ovum research director, said: “Our survey shows that service providers are already deriving significant value from TR-069, with over six out of ten reporting benefits such as simplified service delivery, faster fault resolution and lower installation costs.

“Adoption of TR-069 will accelerate as a growing number of DSL, fiber and cable service providers alike bake technology into their ultrafast-broadband, multiplay bundling and smart-home strategies.

With the number of connected devices and applications set to grow, they see a clear need to better visualise, support and control activity on the home network, with eight out of ten stating that TR-069 will play a significant role in their smart-home strategies.”

Robin Mersh, CEO of the Broadband Forum, said: “The Forum is delighted to see the continuing growth and expanded use of the TR-069 CPE WAN Management Protocol in broadband operators’ networks and the exciting opportunities that exist as the needs of the connected home move from managing devices to managing services. The survey brings this vibrant market sector to the attention of the whole industry and shows how the complex technical work of TR-069 is making a real practical difference.”

Ovum’s estimate of 269 million TR-069-enabled devices by end-2014 marks an increase on a projection of 250 million made by the global research and advisory firm as part of a 2012 study commissioned by the Broadband Forum. Ovum revised its estimates upwards largely to reflect moves by a growing number of service providers to take greater control over the residential gateway as they accelerate take-up of ultrafast-broadband and multiplay bundles.

Residential gateways will account for the majority of TR-069-enabled CPE, rising from just under 200 million at the end of 2014 to 255 million at the end of 2016. During this period, the percentage of fixed-broadband connections equipped with a TR-069-enabled residential gateway will increase from 26% to 30%. TV set-top boxes will be the second-largest category, rising from 46 million at the end of 2014 to 69 million at the end of 2016. More findings from the survey can be found within the ‘Efficient and Automated Smart Home Rollout’ whitepaper, which was sponsored by Axiros.

Riedel Communications, provider of real-time video, audio, data, and communications networks, has launched MicroN – an 80G media distribution network device for the company's MediorNet line of media transport and management solutions.

MicroN, which works seamlessly with the MediorNet MetroN core fiber router, is a high-density signal interface with a complete array of audio, video, and data inputs and outputs. These include 24 SD/HD/3G-SDI I/Os, two MADI optical digital audio ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, two sync reference I/Os, and eight 10G SFP+ high-speed ports. MicroN is available as a fully networked MediorNet device, as well as in a point-to-point edition at a competitive price point.

"In just a single rack unit, the MicroN offers a highly versatile signal interface that can be used in productions of every size and complexity," said Lars Höhmann, Skype & MediorNet product manager at Riedel Communications.

"For the largest media networks built on our MediorNet transport devices, MicroN can serve as a breakout box for a MetroN router and extend connectivity beyond the fiber I/Os to any type of video and audio I/O required," he added. "Or, MicroN can simply work with a MetroN router, with other MicroN units, or in a standalone point-to-point configuration to provide an economical solution for small- to medium-sized productions. And, like the other members of the MediorNet family, MicroN has powerful built-in signal processing features that eliminate the need for many external devices."

In a compact 1RU form factor for rackmount applications, the MicroN offers full support for 10G high-speed video, 3G-SDI video, MADI audio, and Gigabit Ethernet. The system includes an integrated video, audio, and data router and sync reference I/Os, including black burst, tri-level, and word clock. Built-in video and audio processing capabilities include automatic format detection, a frame synchronizer and framestore on all video outputs, a 16-channel audio embedder/de-embedder, a test pattern generator, on-screen and system VITC displays, an integrated sample-rate converter, and audio/video delay lines. The MicroN is powered by a redundant, wide-range AC power supply and also features temperature monitoring and adaptive fan control.

Interconnecting MicroN nodes in a meshed fashion leads to a very scalable, decentralised video routing application. This approach can be used as a replacement for small to medium sized routers and offers a very flexible system design, allowing users to extend the router capacity in both signal capacity and distributed system locations by adding MicroN nodes to the network. Operating in standalone mode, the MicroN can act as a 12x12 router and audio embedder/de-embedder with MADI SRC and delay, and also provides video frame sync and delay.

In a point-to-point deployment, multiple paired MicroN units can provide all of these capabilities plus support for up to 12 bi-directional SDI I/Os, two MADI I/Os, and a Gigabit Ethernet link. Multiple MicroNs can be integrated as a central video router for redundant processing of up to 192x192 HD-SDI signals, and they can also be deployed in a distributed fashion as a decentralised video router.

Thomson Video Networks has launch the FUZE-1 Playout System, a new system that integrates the traditional playout functions of a channel in a box (CiaB) with premium-quality encoding and transcoding for broadcast and OTT delivery.

Ideal for applications such as ad insertion, branding, disaster recovery, and EAS insertion, FUZE-1 provides a rich playout infrastructure together with the ability to process audio and video either directly in the compressed domain or by going back to baseband and re-encoding, the company said.

"Recent years have seen an explosion of new linear TV channels that require their own distinct graphic identity. At the same time, broadcasters know that OTT distribution of premium channels is a must if they want to stay relevant and competitive. Channel-in-a-box solutions are a big step forward, enabling broadcasters to move away from complex and expensive multi-vendor infrastructures for uncompressed playout. But in a typical CiaB system, the playout and compression functions operate as independent silos," said Eric Gallier, vice president, marketing, Thomson Video Networks.

"With FUZE-1, we're breaking down these silos with a versatile and cost-effective solution for MPEG-2, MPEG-4, and HEVC video playout on-premises or in the cloud. As the newest component in our Behind Every Screen® strategy, FUZE-1 fulfills the acquisition, branding, ad insertion, and compression requirements of today's most sophisticated multi-screen media operations."

FUZE-1 is a software-based solution for integrated playout of linear SD and HD television or multi-screen channels as well as broadcast and OTT delivery. Powered by the Thomson Video Networks MediaFlexOS video operating system, FUZE-1 provides advanced graphics, channel switching, sophisticated built-in automation, an integrated asset manager, and premium software transcoding capabilities.

FUZE-1 enables live and file-based playback, advanced graphics overlays including animated bitmaps or text crawls, and video effects such as fade in/out or video squeeze-back. FUZE-1 features a best-of-breed 1-RU IT server equipped with a secure storage system and a set of IP, ASI, and/or SDI interface options.

Using the unique clustering, load balancing, and internal redundancy capabilities of MediaFlexOS, FUZE-1 can be deployed either on-premises at data centers or in virtualised environments.

2wcom, a German manufacturer of broadcast technology products, has just launched its new FM02 FM receiver.

The receiver has the ability to perform the multiple roles of demodulation, source-switching for FM backup, and FM/RDS parameter monitoring.

The FM02 can be used in a variety of ways to meet a range of broadcasting scenarios. The dual-channel capability allows the unit to receive one FM signal for re-broadcasting, while monitoring a second FM signal with the second tuner; or to receive the same signal on both tuners with one acting as a backup. A high-quality FM tuner is key to the FM02’s specification, providing it with substantially better FM performance than is typical in competing demodulator products.

For source-switching in a backup solution, the FM02 receives an MPX signal and loops it through directly to the output. In case of failure the FM02 uses its tuner as a back-up solution to receive the MPX signal off the air. Robust performance is provided by the unit’s ability to loop through the signal even during a power failure. Extending the versatility of the unit still further, the FM02 can be used as part of a monitoring solution for both FM and RDS parameters.

Offering easy remote control via IP and snmp, the FM02 also offers remote audio quality monitoring through its built-in mp3 streaming capability.

“Like many of the products we have developed recently in response to customer requests, the FM02 is a sophisticated device that can be used in so many different ways,” said Werner Drews, managing director of 2wcom. “A high degree of versatility is very valuable to customers today, because it saves investment and operational costs, and accommodates a wide variety of network configurations and strategies, and the ability to make network changes without further cost.”

The FMC02 is a 19” unit with dual tuners and dual antenna inputs.

Thomson Video Networks is conducting France's first demonstration of high-quality video broadcast of five HD channels in a DTTV 24.8 Mbps multiplex, enabled by the company's ViBE EM4000 premium HD/SD encoder and NetProcessor multiplexer/video processor.

The demonstration, which began on Nov. 30 and will continue through Friday, Dec. 5, is being managed by the HD Forum at the NRJ main broadcasting facility in Paris.

Thomson Video Networks created the demonstration to show how advanced compression technology can be used to broadcast five HD channels, instead of the three currently used today in France, in a DTTV 24.8 Mbps multiplex without compromising video quality.

With 1080ix1920 HD content provided by five French broadcasters — Arte, Canal+, France Televisions, NRJ, and TF1 — the ViBE EM4000 encodes the video in MPEG-4 VBR (statistical multiplexing). The HD content is then multiplexed by the NetProcessor, modulated in DVB-T, and displayed on five 46-inch and 55-inch televisions with built-in decoder capabilities.

"Worldwide, broadcasters on DTTV platforms are looking for the best picture quality at the lowest possible bandwidth. In this demonstration, we're showing how dramatic advancements in compression technology are providing a migration path to HD and offering a better experience for viewers," said Claude Perron, CTO at Thomson Video Networks. "Although we're focusing on the French DTTV platform here, the technology can be applied to any DTTV platform using the EM4000 and NetProcessor."

Advanced Media, a Dubai-based distributor of broadcast equipment, has brought the Freefly TERO to the Middle East region.

The Freefly TERO is a customised radio-controlled car camera mount, which Advanced Media describes as “a completely exciting new way to move the camera.”

Placing a camera in a M?VI cradle on a TERO allows for a dynamic low camera angle, coupled with full 3-axis control of the M?VI stabiliser to create never-before-seen shots. With Freefly’s custom vibration isolation system on a car as smooth as this, users can rethink what is possible from a chase car.

From the outset, Freefly knew the TERO had to be fast, agile and smooth. Drawing on feedback from professional remote control car racers, Freefly created a system that has amazing acceleration and precise control. The system also can be outfitted with an optional cockpit camera to allow the driver to control the vehicle as if they were driving it. This allows for out-of-sight operation, as well as piloting the car into dangerous situations or stunts while maintaining a safe operating distance.

The TERO is essentially a small robot, and videographers around the world appear set to put it to use in chase scenes, keeping pace with animals, mingling with dancers or just filming in tight spaces.
Advanced Media is the exclusive distributor for Freefly TERO in the Middle East.

iPad artists will be heartened to hear that Wacom’s Intuos Creative Stylus 2 is now compatible with Savage’s Procreate 2.3 software, the application of choice of many artists when it comes to drawing and illustration on the iPad.

Wacom designed its Intuos Creative Stylus 2, a pressure-sensitive stylus, with creative professionals in mind. By making the stylus compatible with Savage’s Procreate, Wacom will open its popular stylus up to a far wider base of professional artists.

The Intuos Creative Stylus 2 will be supported in Procreate 2.3 on all compatible iPads.

Users of the iPad Air 2 can connect and use all the features of the Intuos Creative Stylus 2 in Procreate 2.3, but it will remain officially unsupported. Savage and Wacom will continue to work together to improve and expand compatibility with the iPad Air 2. Other exciting additions to Procreate version 2.3 include the all-new Light Interface, along with stability upgrades and bug fixes from previous editions. The integration in Procreate is an important addition to the selection of supported apps with the Intuos Creative Stylus 2, and both teams look forward to seeing what their customers are creating with their newly compatible tools.

“Customers long hoped to pair the precision and natural feel of the Intuos Creative Stylus with the powerful and fluid tools of Procreate. This creative vision is now a reality due to the collaborative efforts of the Wacom and Procreate teams,” Wacom said in a statement.

Founded in 1983, Wacom is a global company based in Japan with subsidiaries and affiliate offices around the world to support marketing and distribution in over 150 countries.

Savage Interactive is the developer of illustration software Procreate for iPad.

Taking over Frankfurt, Germany for three days, the World Club Dome, developed and organised by BigCityBeats, sees ravers come together under one spectacular roof to enjoy the latest and greatest in Electronic Dance Music (EDM).

BigCityBeats has long been synonymous with major opening and closing shows designed by its initiator and organiser Bernd Breiter. This year, both ceremonies featured a new light show – designed by A&O Creative under the direction of lighting designer Manfred “Ollie” Olma.

For the World Club Dome live shows, the company assembled the largest constellation of luminaires ever deployed for an event of its kind. the enabled A&O Creative, the creative department of Bremen-based lighting specialists A&O Technology, under Olma's direction, delivered its newly conceived light show “Big City Lights”.

The resulting show flooded the arena with impressive images of light. The video content was created by Saskia Olma, whilst Marco Niedermeier, CEO of A&O Technology, was active in the role of executive producer.

Olma reveals: “We provided the illumination from inside, yet to spectators it appeared as though it were happening outside the arena. It is not just an architectonic 3D light but extends into 4D and 5D. Spectators are given the impression that they are travelling in time. Based on the interaction of lighting, video, laser and pyrotechnics, the guiding leitmotif for the lighting design stemmed from the doctrine of the Four Elements. It was supported by powerful sound."

In all, A&O Creative installed almost a hundred FALCON searchlights from event partner A&O Technology in the main stage area of the Commerzbank Arena, which for three days became the world’s biggest club. Among them were a LED band made up of Video FALCONs at the front of the main stage. FALCON BEAM and FLOWER units completed the multi-level constellation.

According to the organisers, some 100,000 visitors (up to 40,000 per day) attended at least one of the shows over the course of the weekend, occupying the 500,000sqm party arena to hear some of the most famous EDM DJs and live acts in the world, including stars such as Avicii, David Guetta, Faithless and Hardwell.


Bernd Breiter, CEO of BigCityBeats, commented: “For the BigCityBeats World Club Dome, we developed an opening and closing show with maximum emotional impact. And thanks to A&O, a magnificent team and incredible equipment (including a multitude of high-powered lamps), we managed to create together a new type of spectacle. The BigCityBeats World Club Dome has drawn a massive response worldwide. I’d like to thank most warmly A&O, Marco Niedermeier, Ollie Olma and the entire team that contributed to the realisation of my dream."

Trusst has introduced a new swivel coupler clamp, model CTC-50SC, that is rated to handle heavy-duty loads up to 1,650 pounds (750kg) while providing flexibility, safety and easy installation.

Designed to connect two sections of 50mm truss or piping, the CTC-50SC features captive T-handles that make installation quick and easy. With a T-handle, the clamp can be tightened much faster because it is more ergonomically friendly to the hand than the typical nut used on most swivel couplers – thereby shaving time off the rigging process.

Another convenient feature on the CTC-50SC is that the end of the bolt is flared so that the T-handle and washer cannot spin all the way off and become lost.

The CTC-50SC coupler features a 360° wraparound design that completely encircles the truss, providing extra stability and security. An added advantage of this design is that it won’t cause any scratching or damage to truss surfaces, extending the life of the truss.

Made of rugged extruded aluminum, the CTC-50SC is built for long-lasting reliability. It is TÜV approved for safe, worry-free installation in any application. The CTC-50SC is designed to fit Trusst’s CT290 Truss Series and other major brands of truss with 50mm main chords as well as 2” steel or aluminum pipes. The clamp weighs 1.3kg and has dimensions 292 x 50 x 114mm.

Dubai could be the next target for live-event specialist Flash, which is behind events such as the Abu Dhabi Formula 1 Grand Prix and Yasalam festival.

The company, based in Abu Dhabi, is known for the success of it’s events in the capital but is looking beyond the emirate’s borders to new territory, operations director Lee Charteris told DPME.com.

“I think [Dubai] would be a natural progression for us. We want to entertain people and there are people there to be entertained so why wouldn’t we do that,” he said.

He expressed interest in Dubai’s venues but pointed to a ‘as well as rather than instead of’ situation that would see shows in both of the UAE’s major cities.

“I dream of a scenario when someone plays in Abu Dhabi and then drives up the road and plays in Dubai. Why not? That happens in lots of other countries in the world.”

But according to Charteris, this is long-term plan.

“It depends on the artist obviously, I think there’s people that could sell [shows in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi] but I think you would be pushing it right now to do that. But I think it’s only a matter of time,” he says.

And this could mean more artists visiting the region.

“If we could get into having artists that played maybe Doha, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Muscat, wherever it was, then we would be able to bring in more artists because the one thing about destination shows is that it’s quite hard to convince people to come because they need three or four days out of their lives, as opposed to if they were on tour, it being one day of their life,” he explains.

And it’s not just different locations on the cards for Flash but more high-tech shows. Charteris is enthusiastic about new technology and said the UAE could see some interesting additions to the firm’s concerts before year-end.

“I’m always looking at new ways to entertain, and I think 3D, while still in its infancy, will definitely become a part of shows. We’ve already had some discussions about hologram technology with one of the acts that wants to come over here. They would be here but it allows them to be in more than one place on the stage. So that’s something that’s being battered back and forth for one of this year’s acts,” he said

Dolby Laboratories recently partnered with Thomson Video Networks and STMicroelectronics (ST) to demonstrate the first implementation of a complete encoding-decoding chain for HD and Ultra HD broadcast based on the new Dolby AC-4 audio codec.

At the heart of a demonstration at the Dolby ATSC 3.0 showcase in Atlanta is Thomson Video Networks' ViBE VS7000 multi-screen encoding/transcoding platform and the ST Ultra HD STiH418 System-on-Chip (SoC).

Thomson Video Networks demonstrates high-efficiency video coding (HEVC) for Ultra HD video delivery featuring the integration of the Dolby AC-4 encoder with the ViBE VS7000 and a set-top box (STB) powered by ST's HEVC-capable SoC.

“The Dolby AC-4 audio format addresses the current and future needs of next-generation video and audio entertainment services,” said Giles Baker, SVP, broadcast business group, Dolby Laboratories. “It enables the distribution of future generations of media content and experiences across the broadest range of devices with far better bandwidth efficiencies compared to today's solutions.”

Eric Gallier, vice president of marketing, Thomson Video Networks, added: “The emerging Dolby AC-4 codec is rapidly becoming a new standard for next-generation audio encoding; in fact, it's known as the audio counterpart to the emerging HEVC video codec. Working together, AC-4 and HEVC provide a coherent and efficient solution to the challenge of transporting Ultra HD content on television networks.

“As one of the first-ever worldwide implementations of HEVC, our ViBE VS7000 is the ideal platform with which to demonstrate the ground breaking capabilities of Dolby AC-4 and ST's SoC for next-generation Ultra HD video offerings on any type of device and over any type of network."

available in white.,[total_comment] => 0,[articleTags] => 3821,[pct] => 1,[content] =>

Elation Professional has launched the latest addition to its Colour Series of colour-changing LED luminaires, the Colour Pendant - a highly versatile wash light that allows for dynamic control of stage or house lighting levels in an energy-efficient, intelligent downlighting fixture.

The Colour Pendant houses 36 long-life 3W RGBW LEDs for fully blended colour transformations or projections of variable shades of white light. The RGBW LED is capable of emitting a wide palette of colours from saturates to more subtle pastels, making the Colour Pendant an excellent colour matching unit.

Its uniform flat-field output, 3,100 lumens of power and 41° beam angle make for a highly effective wash luminaire whether flooding a stage or studio in hues of color or functionally washing a venue in shades of white light. Full range dimming with selectable dimming curves, strobe and colour macro effects enhance its dynamic capabilities.

The Colour Pendant is convection cooled for silent operation (ideal for noise sensitive environments) and flicker free projection means it can be used in all types of broadcast situations including TV, film and video. It includes removable pendant and yoke mounting brackets for flexible set up and a white model is available through special order.

The Colour Pendant is controllable via 11 DMX channel modes (1 / 3 / 4x2 / 5x2 / 6x2 / 7 / 8 / 10 channel) and is RDM (Remote Device Management) protocol capable. It houses an internal E-Fly extended range wireless DMX transceiver for easier setup with less cable mess. A 4-button control panel with LCD display makes for easy navigation through DMX and manual settings and an auto-sensing power supply covers worldwide voltages and frequencies.

The Colour Pendant is also compact, measuring 14.7” x 9.9” x 12.0” (374mm x 252.5mm x 308.8mm) and weighing only 12.0 lbs (5.4kg). It offers all the benefits of LED like greater reliability, less maintenance and increased energy efficiency (only 110W max power consumption) for a lower cost of ownership.

Adamson Systems Engineering recently announced that registration for its popular Blueprint AV software is now free of charge to members of the professional audio industry.

James Oliver, director of marketing and sales for Adamson, commented: “We've had a banner year in terms of the growth of the company, so we decided to make Blueprint free of charge to thank all of our current and future customers. People are hearing the buzz that surrounds Adamson and now they can experience why that is happening. It’s time to let everyone try out the software that when paired with Adamson loudspeakers provides system designers with one of the most powerful tools in our industry.”

Blueprint AV allows system designers and technicians to build a simple or very complex listening area, hang multiple arrays, simulate response with a variety of acoustic measurement tools, and provide a detailed and accurate rigging plot that can be exported to DXF files for easy transfer to the rigging team.

Users can choose the quick and effective 2D mode to easily determine optimal splay settings for their arrays within their space, or they can opt for the highly detailed 3D mode, which allows for a wide variety of polygonal shapes to easily and accurately build complex spaces. The software also provides a large variety of simulation options.

Training for the software is available to users through online tutorial videos – click here – or through more in-depth modules with the company.

Having discontinued its previous modelling software, Shooter, in June 2015, Adamson will no longer offer any further updates for the product. The company suggests that those utilising Adamson Shooter now register for a free Blueprint AV account instead.

In late 2014, Symetrix announced extensive new support for third-party Dante devices from Shure, Audio-Technica, Attero Tech and Stewart Audio in version 3.0 of its SymNet Composer open architecture design software. Now, the DSP specialist has expanded its configuration opportunities even further with the release of SymNet Composer 4.0.

With SymNet Composer, integrators can use a single piece of software to streamline their programming, network discovery and Dante signal routing of SymNet hardware and multiple third-party products. The latest software version extends this capability to encompass Attero Tech’s newly-released unDUSB Dante interface.

Trent Wagner, senior product manager, Symetrix, explains: “Attero Tech’s unDUSB is a very handy, driver-free 2x2 USB-to-Dante interface that will be deployed primarily for computer-based applications in conferencing systems such as Skype and Microsoft Lync. It can also assist with playback and recording on a PC, so should be very useful for the purposes of archiving meetings and recording courtroom sessions.”

Additionally, SymNet Composer 4.0 offers full support for Symetrix’ latest ARC series wall panel remote. Expected to begin shipping shortly, ARC-3 will arrive in a single SKU supporting both surface and flush-mounting, and incorporates a brand new capacitive touch interface with LED feedback, as well as a multi-lingual graphics-capable OLED display.

DPA Microphones has revealed that it will be exhibiting the latest additions to its range of broadcast microphones at this year's upcoming IBC 2015 (booth 8:D70).

On show will be the new d:facto Interview Microphone, which was launched in April at NAB 2015 and is already garnering praise for its ability to perform in even the most demanding conditions.

With voice clarity, linearity and low handling/wind noise, this high-end handheld reporter’s mic is ideal for both outdoor or studio interview settings. The microphone features an omnidirectional 2006V capsule, based on DPA’s original 2006, but with sensitivity adjusted down 12 dB to accommodate typical interview mic and wireless handle sensitivities - ideal for handheld interview use.

In conjunction with its Dutch distributor Amptec, DPA will also be showing the recently launched d:fine in-ear broadcast headset microphone. Targeted at broadcast hosts and guests who use in-ear monitors to communicate with their producers backstage or to hear foldback from people interviewed outside the studio, the d:fine in-ear microphone is built on the same state-of-the-art capsules and mechanical design that have made DPA’s d:fine range popular.

This model incorporates two cables — microphone and in-ear — that run parallel to provide a neat and clean look. Ear pads in two different sizes are also included, with no audio leakage between the in-ear drivers and the microphone capsule, which can be either omnidirectional or directional. A steel spring construction at the ear hook offers quick mounting for any ear size, while the cable to the integrated in-ear plug(s) can be lengthened or shortened to suit the user. It is easy to adjust headset mount size and, by choosing between left and right ear orientation, it is even possible to give the broadcast host a ‘camera blind’ side.

DPA will also show its podium range, which includes the d:screet miniature podium microphone. Incorporating special interference tube technology that ensures exceptional directivity and off-axis rejection, the d:screet miniature podium microphone features a miniature capsule mounted on a delicate gooseneck that comes in several lengths for table mounting. It can even be used in a wireless configuration by employing the company’s adapter range, which is already used for other miniature microphones.

DPA's podium range also includes the d:dictate podium microphones, which feature modular capsules from DPA's d:dictate recording microphones. These are acclaimed for their exceptional linear frequency responses, high SPL and superior gain before feedback.

The company will complete its IBC 2015 line up by showing its full line of d:screet miniature, d:fine headset and d:vote instrument solutions, as well as the d:facto vocal microphone.

DPA and Amptec will also be running a daily competition at IBC, giving visitors the chance to win a DPA microphone. Anyone who visits the booth during the day and has their badge scanned will receive a pin. If they return at 5pm each day wearing their pin, they will be entered into the prize draw.

Taking over Frankfurt, Germany for three days, the World Club Dome, developed and organised by BigCityBeats, sees ravers come together under one spectacular roof to enjoy the latest and greatest in Electronic Dance Music (EDM).

BigCityBeats has long been synonymous with major opening and closing shows designed by its initiator and organiser Bernd Breiter. This year, both ceremonies featured a new light show – designed by A&O Creative under the direction of lighting designer Manfred “Ollie” Olma.

For the World Club Dome live shows, the company assembled the largest constellation of luminaires ever deployed for an event of its kind. the enabled A&O Creative, the creative department of Bremen-based lighting specialists A&O Technology, under Olma's direction, delivered its newly conceived light show “Big City Lights”.

The resulting show flooded the arena with impressive images of light. The video content was created by Saskia Olma, whilst Marco Niedermeier, CEO of A&O Technology, was active in the role of executive producer.

Olma reveals: “We provided the illumination from inside, yet to spectators it appeared as though it were happening outside the arena. It is not just an architectonic 3D light but extends into 4D and 5D. Spectators are given the impression that they are travelling in time. Based on the interaction of lighting, video, laser and pyrotechnics, the guiding leitmotif for the lighting design stemmed from the doctrine of the Four Elements. It was supported by powerful sound."

In all, A&O Creative installed almost a hundred FALCON searchlights from event partner A&O Technology in the main stage area of the Commerzbank Arena, which for three days became the world’s biggest club. Among them were a LED band made up of Video FALCONs at the front of the main stage. FALCON BEAM and FLOWER units completed the multi-level constellation.

According to the organisers, some 100,000 visitors (up to 40,000 per day) attended at least one of the shows over the course of the weekend, occupying the 500,000sqm party arena to hear some of the most famous EDM DJs and live acts in the world, including stars such as Avicii, David Guetta, Faithless and Hardwell.


Bernd Breiter, CEO of BigCityBeats, commented: “For the BigCityBeats World Club Dome, we developed an opening and closing show with maximum emotional impact. And thanks to A&O, a magnificent team and incredible equipment (including a multitude of high-powered lamps), we managed to create together a new type of spectacle. The BigCityBeats World Club Dome has drawn a massive response worldwide. I’d like to thank most warmly A&O, Marco Niedermeier, Ollie Olma and the entire team that contributed to the realisation of my dream."

Trusst has introduced a new swivel coupler clamp, model CTC-50SC, that is rated to handle heavy-duty loads up to 1,650 pounds (750kg) while providing flexibility, safety and easy installation.

Designed to connect two sections of 50mm truss or piping, the CTC-50SC features captive T-handles that make installation quick and easy. With a T-handle, the clamp can be tightened much faster because it is more ergonomically friendly to the hand than the typical nut used on most swivel couplers – thereby shaving time off the rigging process.

Another convenient feature on the CTC-50SC is that the end of the bolt is flared so that the T-handle and washer cannot spin all the way off and become lost.

The CTC-50SC coupler features a 360° wraparound design that completely encircles the truss, providing extra stability and security. An added advantage of this design is that it won’t cause any scratching or damage to truss surfaces, extending the life of the truss.

Made of rugged extruded aluminum, the CTC-50SC is built for long-lasting reliability. It is TÜV approved for safe, worry-free installation in any application. The CTC-50SC is designed to fit Trusst’s CT290 Truss Series and other major brands of truss with 50mm main chords as well as 2” steel or aluminum pipes. The clamp weighs 1.3kg and has dimensions 292 x 50 x 114mm.

DCC Labs, a Digital TV software integrator and developer specialising in STB and connected client software, is launching its Freestyle software service for TV operators and system integrators.

The new service, which is being unveiled at TV Connect 2015 in London, represents a departure from the traditional industry approach of taking a pre-existing middleware product and shoehorning it into the individual operator’s requirements. Instead, the new service builds a hybrid client from the ground up, using open stack components based on HTML5 and QML to create a pre-integrated, optimised user experience.

Harnessing DCC Labs specialist expertise in building hybrid client stacks for STBs, Smart TVs and other connected devices, the new service is designed to deliver innovative new interactive services, alongside traditional broadcast services on both legacy and new hardware. It is hardware agnostic and comes complete with full lifecycle software support and the guarantee of a back-to-back contract for systems integrators.

TV operators and systems Integrators will also benefit from DCC Labs capability in ensuring that new software will run on both existing and legacy Set Top Boxes (STBs), mobile devices and smart TV’s.

This delivers significant capex savings on hardware replacement alongside the associated costs with ‘ripping and replacing’ legacy STBS. Providing a single point of contact and offering full lifecycle support, the new Freestyle service will also enable operators and integrators to benefit from a reduced total cost of ownership, the company said.

Marek Kielczewski, CEO of DCC Labs, said: “The best approach to middleware is to offer it as a service, rather than a product. The user interface (UI) enables the delivery of the necessary content and not as a standalone component but as an integrated whole, optimised to deliver the best user experience.

“We work closely with the customer to build a service that is going to optimise their objectives and deliver against KPIs. TV operators want to develop an innovative product roadmap to differentiate their offerings from competitors and we are there to work hand-in hand with them to develop customised and bespoke services that make them stand out from the crowd.”

Sony’s new HDC-4300 is the world’s first camera to use three 2/3-inch 4K image sensors. It supports the same B4-mount lenses as well as the same control surfaces as Sony’s HDC-2000 series cameras.

Sony’s next generation of HDC series camera technology provides the ability to use the high magnification wide zoom range lenses currently employed by HD 2/3-inch systems while maintaining an adequate depth of field to properly show all the action in live event broadcasting.

The existing HDLA-1500 series, control and shading systems, viewfinders and master set-up units are all interchangeable between the HD and 4K systems. Directors and operators can keep their approach to live events -- including camera angles, zoom ranges and iris settings – while using familiar camera technology.

“This camera provides 4K capabilities and a workflow that content producers are instantly familiar and comfortable with,” said Vivian Saldanha, business head, content creation sales and market development, Sony Professional Solutions MEA. “We’ve developed an approach that allows the large existing HDC series user base to employ 4K advantages such as 8x high frame rate and 4K cut-out and zoom while using a familiar infrastructure and signal path.”

The new HDC-4300 is capable of 4K/HD operation, with2x, 3x Super Slow Motion as standard, and higher speeds up to 8x available, to produce high-quality replays and specialty program effects.

The camera uses ultra-high-precision alignment technology to realize three 4K sensor on a new prism. This allows the support of the next-generation ITU-R BT.2020 broadcast standard’s widened color space for future-proof masters or post production options for today’s productions shown on tomorrow’s 4K services.

Standard large-format B4-mount lenses mount directly onto the HDC 4300. This gives broadcasters the flexibility needed for live sports broadcasts: 4K capabilities while maintaining their customary HD-lens operating styles.

Sony’s SZC-4001 software package (sold separately) allows broadcasters to take advantage of 4K capabilities.

The SZC-4002 software package (sold separately) enables the system to shoot full HD (1920 x 1080) at frame rates up to 479.52/400 fps, as well as 59.94/50, 119.88/100, and 179.82/150 fps. Users can save these high-frame-rate shots to Sony’s PWS-4400multiport 4K/HD Live Server.

The HDC-4300 accepts the same configurations as existing 4K live systems.

A BPU-4000 baseband processor unit receives the camera signals via SMPTE fiber and connects to an HDCU-2000 or 2500 camera control unit. This provides power and full intercom, tally, and return capabilities.

Users can seamlessly blend an HDC-4300-based system with existing HDC Series camera system. The HD signals from the HDC Series cameras and from the new camera system can be adjusted to match colorimetry.

The addition of other 4K products, such as the PWS-4400 multi-port 4K/HD Live server, a multi-format switcher capable of real-time 4K signal processing based on the MVS-8000X, and Sony’s new BVM-X300 4K OLED or PMW-X300 4K LCD monitors creates an end-to-end 4K live production solution.

The HDC-4300 4K/HD live camera system is planned to be available in summer of 2015.

Targeted at broadcast hosts and guests who use in-ear monitors to communicate with their producers backstage or to hear foldback from people interviewed outside the studio, the d:fine in-ear microphone is built on the same state-of-the-art capsules and mechanical design that have made DPA’s d:fine range popular.

This model incorporates two cables — microphone and in-ear — that run parallel to provide a neat and clean look. Ear pads in two different sizes are also included, with no audio leakage between the in-ear drivers and the microphone capsule, which can be either omnidirectional or directional. A steel spring construction at the ear hook offers quick mounting for any ear size, while the cable to the integrated in-ear plug(s) can be lengthened or shortened to suit the user. It is easy to adjust headset mount size and, by choosing between left and right ear orientation, it is even possible to give the broadcast host a ‘camera blind’ side.

DPA will also show its podium range, which includes the d:screet miniature podium microphone. Incorporating special interference tube technology that ensures exceptional directivity and off-axis rejection, the d:screet miniature podium microphone features a miniature capsule mounted on a delicate gooseneck that comes in several lengths for table mounting. It can even be used in a wireless configuration by employing the company’s adapter range, which is already used for other miniature microphones.

DPA's podium range also includes the d:dictate podium microphones, which feature modular capsules from DPA's d:dictate recording microphones. These are acclaimed for their exceptional linear frequency responses, high SPL and superior gain before feedback.

The company will complete its IBC 2015 line up by showing its full line of d:screet miniature, d:fine headset and d:vote instrument solutions, as well as the d:facto vocal microphone.

DPA and Amptec will also be running a daily competition at IBC, giving visitors the chance to win a DPA microphone. Anyone who visits the booth during the day and has their badge scanned will receive a pin. If they return at 5pm each day wearing their pin, they will be entered into the prize draw.

Bel Digital’s BM-A1-4SHD four channel audio monitor/de-embedder is already a firm favourite with broadcasters, now all of its features are available in a newly-launched larger 2U chassis, providing increased definition in metering and an increase in SPL.

With a reduction of both chassis depth (down to 200 mm) and overall weight, the new BM-A2-4SHD MKII is ideal for OB or Flyaway applications.

The BM-A2-4SHD MKII can de-embed any group of four channels of audio from one of two SDI sources (up to 3G SDI) and display the levels on the front panel meters, as well as providing stereo audio monitoring of any combination of the four channels.

In addition to the auto-detecting SDI inputs, the BM-A2-4SHD MKII has four balanced XLR analogue inputs and two AES3id BNCs. A re-clocked loop-through output is available for the selected SDI source, providing a convenient and cost-effective method of switching SDI feeds to an external monitor. Channels 1 to 4 of the selected source are also routed to two AES3id outputs. Therefore providing format conversion and SDI de-embedding facilities. In addition, the stereo audio monitor mix is available as a separate balanced feed at a pair of XLRs.

Simple to set up and use, like the BM-A1-4SHD, all source selection and main monitoring setup is done from individual controls on the front panel, without any need for menu navigation.

The BM-A2-4SHD MKII’s audio performance is tuned for maximum clarity and delivers a higher SPL compared to the more compact BM-A1-4SHD monitor. Users also have full flexibility in assigning any channel to left, right or both speakers (or neither), and automatic level attenuation compensates for monitoring multiple channels. A ¼” jack headphone output socket is provided on the front panel, which mutes the loudspeakers when in use. If external monitoring on larger speakers is required, the audio level at the rear panel analogue outputs may be configured to be either fixed or to follow the main volume control.

The 53-segment, tricolour LED bargraphs include user setup options to allow a choice of four scales and ballistics (including BBC or DIN PPM, VU and AES/EBU), as well as colour transition points and peak hold.

The front panel LCD provides signal status information of the selected source (including video format of the selected SDI signal and AES lock) and volume level indication.

The number of residential gateways, TV set-top boxes and other home broadband equipment in use that support the Broadband Forum’s TR-069 (CPE WAN Management Protocol) standard will reach 356 million in 2016, according to a new forecast by Ovum.

The trend is being driven by a growing number of service providers who embrace the management protocol to support burgeoning demand for ultrafast-broadband and smart-home services.

The forecast was commissioned by the Broadband Forum standards body responsible for TR-069 as part of a wide-reaching project that saw Ovum survey over 250 global industry executives, including over 100 in senior roles at broadband service providers, about their use of TR-069 and plans for the smart home.

TR-069 is a technical specification that defines a common communication protocol that enables broadband service providers to remotely configure devices, enable end-to-end delivery of new services, and then cost-effectively manage and support them.

Rob Gallagher, Ovum research director, said: “Our survey shows that service providers are already deriving significant value from TR-069, with over six out of ten reporting benefits such as simplified service delivery, faster fault resolution and lower installation costs.

“Adoption of TR-069 will accelerate as a growing number of DSL, fiber and cable service providers alike bake technology into their ultrafast-broadband, multiplay bundling and smart-home strategies.

With the number of connected devices and applications set to grow, they see a clear need to better visualise, support and control activity on the home network, with eight out of ten stating that TR-069 will play a significant role in their smart-home strategies.”

Robin Mersh, CEO of the Broadband Forum, said: “The Forum is delighted to see the continuing growth and expanded use of the TR-069 CPE WAN Management Protocol in broadband operators’ networks and the exciting opportunities that exist as the needs of the connected home move from managing devices to managing services. The survey brings this vibrant market sector to the attention of the whole industry and shows how the complex technical work of TR-069 is making a real practical difference.”

Ovum’s estimate of 269 million TR-069-enabled devices by end-2014 marks an increase on a projection of 250 million made by the global research and advisory firm as part of a 2012 study commissioned by the Broadband Forum. Ovum revised its estimates upwards largely to reflect moves by a growing number of service providers to take greater control over the residential gateway as they accelerate take-up of ultrafast-broadband and multiplay bundles.

Residential gateways will account for the majority of TR-069-enabled CPE, rising from just under 200 million at the end of 2014 to 255 million at the end of 2016. During this period, the percentage of fixed-broadband connections equipped with a TR-069-enabled residential gateway will increase from 26% to 30%. TV set-top boxes will be the second-largest category, rising from 46 million at the end of 2014 to 69 million at the end of 2016. More findings from the survey can be found within the ‘Efficient and Automated Smart Home Rollout’ whitepaper, which was sponsored by Axiros.

Riedel Communications, provider of real-time video, audio, data, and communications networks, has launched MicroN – an 80G media distribution network device for the company's MediorNet line of media transport and management solutions.

MicroN, which works seamlessly with the MediorNet MetroN core fiber router, is a high-density signal interface with a complete array of audio, video, and data inputs and outputs. These include 24 SD/HD/3G-SDI I/Os, two MADI optical digital audio ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, two sync reference I/Os, and eight 10G SFP+ high-speed ports. MicroN is available as a fully networked MediorNet device, as well as in a point-to-point edition at a competitive price point.

"In just a single rack unit, the MicroN offers a highly versatile signal interface that can be used in productions of every size and complexity," said Lars Höhmann, Skype & MediorNet product manager at Riedel Communications.

"For the largest media networks built on our MediorNet transport devices, MicroN can serve as a breakout box for a MetroN router and extend connectivity beyond the fiber I/Os to any type of video and audio I/O required," he added. "Or, MicroN can simply work with a MetroN router, with other MicroN units, or in a standalone point-to-point configuration to provide an economical solution for small- to medium-sized productions. And, like the other members of the MediorNet family, MicroN has powerful built-in signal processing features that eliminate the need for many external devices."

In a compact 1RU form factor for rackmount applications, the MicroN offers full support for 10G high-speed video, 3G-SDI video, MADI audio, and Gigabit Ethernet. The system includes an integrated video, audio, and data router and sync reference I/Os, including black burst, tri-level, and word clock. Built-in video and audio processing capabilities include automatic format detection, a frame synchronizer and framestore on all video outputs, a 16-channel audio embedder/de-embedder, a test pattern generator, on-screen and system VITC displays, an integrated sample-rate converter, and audio/video delay lines. The MicroN is powered by a redundant, wide-range AC power supply and also features temperature monitoring and adaptive fan control.

Interconnecting MicroN nodes in a meshed fashion leads to a very scalable, decentralised video routing application. This approach can be used as a replacement for small to medium sized routers and offers a very flexible system design, allowing users to extend the router capacity in both signal capacity and distributed system locations by adding MicroN nodes to the network. Operating in standalone mode, the MicroN can act as a 12x12 router and audio embedder/de-embedder with MADI SRC and delay, and also provides video frame sync and delay.

In a point-to-point deployment, multiple paired MicroN units can provide all of these capabilities plus support for up to 12 bi-directional SDI I/Os, two MADI I/Os, and a Gigabit Ethernet link. Multiple MicroNs can be integrated as a central video router for redundant processing of up to 192x192 HD-SDI signals, and they can also be deployed in a distributed fashion as a decentralised video router.

Thomson Video Networks has launch the FUZE-1 Playout System, a new system that integrates the traditional playout functions of a channel in a box (CiaB) with premium-quality encoding and transcoding for broadcast and OTT delivery.

Ideal for applications such as ad insertion, branding, disaster recovery, and EAS insertion, FUZE-1 provides a rich playout infrastructure together with the ability to process audio and video either directly in the compressed domain or by going back to baseband and re-encoding, the company said.

"Recent years have seen an explosion of new linear TV channels that require their own distinct graphic identity. At the same time, broadcasters know that OTT distribution of premium channels is a must if they want to stay relevant and competitive. Channel-in-a-box solutions are a big step forward, enabling broadcasters to move away from complex and expensive multi-vendor infrastructures for uncompressed playout. But in a typical CiaB system, the playout and compression functions operate as independent silos," said Eric Gallier, vice president, marketing, Thomson Video Networks.

"With FUZE-1, we're breaking down these silos with a versatile and cost-effective solution for MPEG-2, MPEG-4, and HEVC video playout on-premises or in the cloud. As the newest component in our Behind Every Screen® strategy, FUZE-1 fulfills the acquisition, branding, ad insertion, and compression requirements of today's most sophisticated multi-screen media operations."

EVS, a provider of live video production systems, will highlight its latest broadcast technology at CABSAT 2015.

The company aims to show how its technology can improve the live programming experience.

EVS’ production servers, content management solutions and multiplatform distribution tools will feature alongside digital archive management tools and the brand new OB tool, Truck Manager.

Content providers need the peace of mind of knowing that their workflows are scalable and future-proof, allowing them to easily transition to future standards and formats.

EVS will also demonstrate its new range of XT3 and XS servers, which are primarily aimed at OB and live studio operations. Both new servers offer extended format support and capabilities including 4K, 1080p and proxy, as well as new 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity and up to 12 HD/SD live recording channels. This allows customers to transition to the next generation of industry standards and workflows as needed.

Another product to be exhibited is IPDirector which is designed for live and fast turnaround production. The latest generation of IPDirector offers new capabilities and modules including web-based remote browsing and content exchange, automated clip management, archive import/export and seamless integration with EVS’ XStore scalable storage solution.

EVS’ IPDirector also guarantees advanced interoperability between production and post-production with the new EXPORT feature from IPLink for Adobe and the support of growing files in FCP-X. As a result, editors can access media directly from their editing stations, create advanced edits, which can be pushed back to the EVS environment for playout.

2wcom, a German manufacturer of broadcast technology products, has just launched its new FM02 FM receiver.

The receiver has the ability to perform the multiple roles of demodulation, source-switching for FM backup, and FM/RDS parameter monitoring.

The FM02 can be used in a variety of ways to meet a range of broadcasting scenarios. The dual-channel capability allows the unit to receive one FM signal for re-broadcasting, while monitoring a second FM signal with the second tuner; or to receive the same signal on both tuners with one acting as a backup. A high-quality FM tuner is key to the FM02’s specification, providing it with substantially better FM performance than is typical in competing demodulator products.

For source-switching in a backup solution, the FM02 receives an MPX signal and loops it through directly to the output. In case of failure the FM02 uses its tuner as a back-up solution to receive the MPX signal off the air. Robust performance is provided by the unit’s ability to loop through the signal even during a power failure. Extending the versatility of the unit still further, the FM02 can be used as part of a monitoring solution for both FM and RDS parameters.

Offering easy remote control via IP and snmp, the FM02 also offers remote audio quality monitoring through its built-in mp3 streaming capability.

“Like many of the products we have developed recently in response to customer requests, the FM02 is a sophisticated device that can be used in so many different ways,” said Werner Drews, managing director of 2wcom. “A high degree of versatility is very valuable to customers today, because it saves investment and operational costs, and accommodates a wide variety of network configurations and strategies, and the ability to make network changes without further cost.”

The FMC02 is a 19” unit with dual tuners and dual antenna inputs.

Thomson Video Networks is conducting France's first demonstration of high-quality video broadcast of five HD channels in a DTTV 24.8 Mbps multiplex, enabled by the company's ViBE EM4000 premium HD/SD encoder and NetProcessor multiplexer/video processor.

The demonstration, which began on Nov. 30 and will continue through Friday, Dec. 5, is being managed by the HD Forum at the NRJ main broadcasting facility in Paris.

Thomson Video Networks created the demonstration to show how advanced compression technology can be used to broadcast five HD channels, instead of the three currently used today in France, in a DTTV 24.8 Mbps multiplex without compromising video quality.

With 1080ix1920 HD content provided by five French broadcasters — Arte, Canal+, France Televisions, NRJ, and TF1 — the ViBE EM4000 encodes the video in MPEG-4 VBR (statistical multiplexing). The HD content is then multiplexed by the NetProcessor, modulated in DVB-T, and displayed on five 46-inch and 55-inch televisions with built-in decoder capabilities.

"Worldwide, broadcasters on DTTV platforms are looking for the best picture quality at the lowest possible bandwidth. In this demonstration, we're showing how dramatic advancements in compression technology are providing a migration path to HD and offering a better experience for viewers," said Claude Perron, CTO at Thomson Video Networks. "Although we're focusing on the French DTTV platform here, the technology can be applied to any DTTV platform using the EM4000 and NetProcessor."

Advanced Media, a Dubai-based distributor of broadcast equipment, has brought the Freefly TERO to the Middle East region.

The Freefly TERO is a customised radio-controlled car camera mount, which Advanced Media describes as “a completely exciting new way to move the camera.”

Placing a camera in a M?VI cradle on a TERO allows for a dynamic low camera angle, coupled with full 3-axis control of the M?VI stabiliser to create never-before-seen shots. With Freefly’s custom vibration isolation system on a car as smooth as this, users can rethink what is possible from a chase car.

From the outset, Freefly knew the TERO had to be fast, agile and smooth. Drawing on feedback from professional remote control car racers, Freefly created a system that has amazing acceleration and precise control. The system also can be outfitted with an optional cockpit camera to allow the driver to control the vehicle as if they were driving it. This allows for out-of-sight operation, as well as piloting the car into dangerous situations or stunts while maintaining a safe operating distance.

The TERO is essentially a small robot, and videographers around the world appear set to put it to use in chase scenes, keeping pace with animals, mingling with dancers or just filming in tight spaces.
Advanced Media is the exclusive distributor for Freefly TERO in the Middle East.

Taking over Frankfurt, Germany for three days, the World Club Dome, developed and organised by BigCityBeats, sees ravers come together under one spectacular roof to enjoy the latest and greatest in Electronic Dance Music (EDM).

BigCityBeats has long been synonymous with major opening and closing shows designed by its initiator and organiser Bernd Breiter. This year, both ceremonies featured a new light show – designed by A&O Creative under the direction of lighting designer Manfred “Ollie” Olma.

For the World Club Dome live shows, the company assembled the largest constellation of luminaires ever deployed for an event of its kind. the enabled A&O Creative, the creative department of Bremen-based lighting specialists A&O Technology, under Olma's direction, delivered its newly conceived light show “Big City Lights”.

The resulting show flooded the arena with impressive images of light. The video content was created by Saskia Olma, whilst Marco Niedermeier, CEO of A&O Technology, was active in the role of executive producer.

Olma reveals: “We provided the illumination from inside, yet to spectators it appeared as though it were happening outside the arena. It is not just an architectonic 3D light but extends into 4D and 5D. Spectators are given the impression that they are travelling in time. Based on the interaction of lighting, video, laser and pyrotechnics, the guiding leitmotif for the lighting design stemmed from the doctrine of the Four Elements. It was supported by powerful sound."

In all, A&O Creative installed almost a hundred FALCON searchlights from event partner A&O Technology in the main stage area of the Commerzbank Arena, which for three days became the world’s biggest club. Among them were a LED band made up of Video FALCONs at the front of the main stage. FALCON BEAM and FLOWER units completed the multi-level constellation.

According to the organisers, some 100,000 visitors (up to 40,000 per day) attended at least one of the shows over the course of the weekend, occupying the 500,000sqm party arena to hear some of the most famous EDM DJs and live acts in the world, including stars such as Avicii, David Guetta, Faithless and Hardwell.


Bernd Breiter, CEO of BigCityBeats, commented: “For the BigCityBeats World Club Dome, we developed an opening and closing show with maximum emotional impact. And thanks to A&O, a magnificent team and incredible equipment (including a multitude of high-powered lamps), we managed to create together a new type of spectacle. The BigCityBeats World Club Dome has drawn a massive response worldwide. I’d like to thank most warmly A&O, Marco Niedermeier, Ollie Olma and the entire team that contributed to the realisation of my dream."

Trusst has introduced a new swivel coupler clamp, model CTC-50SC, that is rated to handle heavy-duty loads up to 1,650 pounds (750kg) while providing flexibility, safety and easy installation.

Designed to connect two sections of 50mm truss or piping, the CTC-50SC features captive T-handles that make installation quick and easy. With a T-handle, the clamp can be tightened much faster because it is more ergonomically friendly to the hand than the typical nut used on most swivel couplers – thereby shaving time off the rigging process.

Another convenient feature on the CTC-50SC is that the end of the bolt is flared so that the T-handle and washer cannot spin all the way off and become lost.

The CTC-50SC coupler features a 360° wraparound design that completely encircles the truss, providing extra stability and security. An added advantage of this design is that it won’t cause any scratching or damage to truss surfaces, extending the life of the truss.

Made of rugged extruded aluminum, the CTC-50SC is built for long-lasting reliability. It is TÜV approved for safe, worry-free installation in any application. The CTC-50SC is designed to fit Trusst’s CT290 Truss Series and other major brands of truss with 50mm main chords as well as 2” steel or aluminum pipes. The clamp weighs 1.3kg and has dimensions 292 x 50 x 114mm.

Dubai could be the next target for live-event specialist Flash, which is behind events such as the Abu Dhabi Formula 1 Grand Prix and Yasalam festival.

The company, based in Abu Dhabi, is known for the success of it’s events in the capital but is looking beyond the emirate’s borders to new territory, operations director Lee Charteris told DPME.com.

“I think [Dubai] would be a natural progression for us. We want to entertain people and there are people there to be entertained so why wouldn’t we do that,” he said.

He expressed interest in Dubai’s venues but pointed to a ‘as well as rather than instead of’ situation that would see shows in both of the UAE’s major cities.

“I dream of a scenario when someone plays in Abu Dhabi and then drives up the road and plays in Dubai. Why not? That happens in lots of other countries in the world.”

But according to Charteris, this is long-term plan.

“It depends on the artist obviously, I think there’s people that could sell [shows in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi] but I think you would be pushing it right now to do that. But I think it’s only a matter of time,” he says.

And this could mean more artists visiting the region.

“If we could get into having artists that played maybe Doha, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Muscat, wherever it was, then we would be able to bring in more artists because the one thing about destination shows is that it’s quite hard to convince people to come because they need three or four days out of their lives, as opposed to if they were on tour, it being one day of their life,” he explains.

And it’s not just different locations on the cards for Flash but more high-tech shows. Charteris is enthusiastic about new technology and said the UAE could see some interesting additions to the firm’s concerts before year-end.

“I’m always looking at new ways to entertain, and I think 3D, while still in its infancy, will definitely become a part of shows. We’ve already had some discussions about hologram technology with one of the acts that wants to come over here. They would be here but it allows them to be in more than one place on the stage. So that’s something that’s being battered back and forth for one of this year’s acts,” he said

Dolby Laboratories recently partnered with Thomson Video Networks and STMicroelectronics (ST) to demonstrate the first implementation of a complete encoding-decoding chain for HD and Ultra HD broadcast based on the new Dolby AC-4 audio codec.

At the heart of a demonstration at the Dolby ATSC 3.0 showcase in Atlanta is Thomson Video Networks' ViBE VS7000 multi-screen encoding/transcoding platform and the ST Ultra HD STiH418 System-on-Chip (SoC).

Thomson Video Networks demonstrates high-efficiency video coding (HEVC) for Ultra HD video delivery featuring the integration of the Dolby AC-4 encoder with the ViBE VS7000 and a set-top box (STB) powered by ST's HEVC-capable SoC.

“The Dolby AC-4 audio format addresses the current and future needs of next-generation video and audio entertainment services,” said Giles Baker, SVP, broadcast business group, Dolby Laboratories. “It enables the distribution of future generations of media content and experiences across the broadest range of devices with far better bandwidth efficiencies compared to today's solutions.”

Eric Gallier, vice president of marketing, Thomson Video Networks, added: “The emerging Dolby AC-4 codec is rapidly becoming a new standard for next-generation audio encoding; in fact, it's known as the audio counterpart to the emerging HEVC video codec. Working together, AC-4 and HEVC provide a coherent and efficient solution to the challenge of transporting Ultra HD content on television networks.

“As one of the first-ever worldwide implementations of HEVC, our ViBE VS7000 is the ideal platform with which to demonstrate the ground breaking capabilities of Dolby AC-4 and ST's SoC for next-generation Ultra HD video offerings on any type of device and over any type of network."

available in white.,[total_comment] => 0,[articleTags] => 3821,[pct] => 1,[content] =>

Elation Professional has launched the latest addition to its Colour Series of colour-changing LED luminaires, the Colour Pendant - a highly versatile wash light that allows for dynamic control of stage or house lighting levels in an energy-efficient, intelligent downlighting fixture.

The Colour Pendant houses 36 long-life 3W RGBW LEDs for fully blended colour transformations or projections of variable shades of white light. The RGBW LED is capable of emitting a wide palette of colours from saturates to more subtle pastels, making the Colour Pendant an excellent colour matching unit.

Its uniform flat-field output, 3,100 lumens of power and 41° beam angle make for a highly effective wash luminaire whether flooding a stage or studio in hues of color or functionally washing a venue in shades of white light. Full range dimming with selectable dimming curves, strobe and colour macro effects enhance its dynamic capabilities.

The Colour Pendant is convection cooled for silent operation (ideal for noise sensitive environments) and flicker free projection means it can be used in all types of broadcast situations including TV, film and video. It includes removable pendant and yoke mounting brackets for flexible set up and a white model is available through special order.

The Colour Pendant is controllable via 11 DMX channel modes (1 / 3 / 4x2 / 5x2 / 6x2 / 7 / 8 / 10 channel) and is RDM (Remote Device Management) protocol capable. It houses an internal E-Fly extended range wireless DMX transceiver for easier setup with less cable mess. A 4-button control panel with LCD display makes for easy navigation through DMX and manual settings and an auto-sensing power supply covers worldwide voltages and frequencies.

The Colour Pendant is also compact, measuring 14.7” x 9.9” x 12.0” (374mm x 252.5mm x 308.8mm) and weighing only 12.0 lbs (5.4kg). It offers all the benefits of LED like greater reliability, less maintenance and increased energy efficiency (only 110W max power consumption) for a lower cost of ownership.

Adamson Systems Engineering recently announced that registration for its popular Blueprint AV software is now free of charge to members of the professional audio industry.

James Oliver, director of marketing and sales for Adamson, commented: “We've had a banner year in terms of the growth of the company, so we decided to make Blueprint free of charge to thank all of our current and future customers. People are hearing the buzz that surrounds Adamson and now they can experience why that is happening. It’s time to let everyone try out the software that when paired with Adamson loudspeakers provides system designers with one of the most powerful tools in our industry.”

Blueprint AV allows system designers and technicians to build a simple or very complex listening area, hang multiple arrays, simulate response with a variety of acoustic measurement tools, and provide a detailed and accurate rigging plot that can be exported to DXF files for easy transfer to the rigging team.

Users can choose the quick and effective 2D mode to easily determine optimal splay settings for their arrays within their space, or they can opt for the highly detailed 3D mode, which allows for a wide variety of polygonal shapes to easily and accurately build complex spaces. The software also provides a large variety of simulation options.

Training for the software is available to users through online tutorial videos – click here – or through more in-depth modules with the company.

Having discontinued its previous modelling software, Shooter, in June 2015, Adamson will no longer offer any further updates for the product. The company suggests that those utilising Adamson Shooter now register for a free Blueprint AV account instead.

In late 2014, Symetrix announced extensive new support for third-party Dante devices from Shure, Audio-Technica, Attero Tech and Stewart Audio in version 3.0 of its SymNet Composer open architecture design software. Now, the DSP specialist has expanded its configuration opportunities even further with the release of SymNet Composer 4.0.

With SymNet Composer, integrators can use a single piece of software to streamline their programming, network discovery and Dante signal routing of SymNet hardware and multiple third-party products. The latest software version extends this capability to encompass Attero Tech’s newly-released unDUSB Dante interface.

Trent Wagner, senior product manager, Symetrix, explains: “Attero Tech’s unDUSB is a very handy, driver-free 2x2 USB-to-Dante interface that will be deployed primarily for computer-based applications in conferencing systems such as Skype and Microsoft Lync. It can also assist with playback and recording on a PC, so should be very useful for the purposes of archiving meetings and recording courtroom sessions.”

Additionally, SymNet Composer 4.0 offers full support for Symetrix’ latest ARC series wall panel remote. Expected to begin shipping shortly, ARC-3 will arrive in a single SKU supporting both surface and flush-mounting, and incorporates a brand new capacitive touch interface with LED feedback, as well as a multi-lingual graphics-capable OLED display.

DPA Microphones has revealed that it will be exhibiting the latest additions to its range of broadcast microphones at this year's upcoming IBC 2015 (booth 8:D70).

On show will be the new d:facto Interview Microphone, which was launched in April at NAB 2015 and is already garnering praise for its ability to perform in even the most demanding conditions.

With voice clarity, linearity and low handling/wind noise, this high-end handheld reporter’s mic is ideal for both outdoor or studio interview settings. The microphone features an omnidirectional 2006V capsule, based on DPA’s original 2006, but with sensitivity adjusted down 12 dB to accommodate typical interview mic and wireless handle sensitivities - ideal for handheld interview use.

In conjunction with its Dutch distributor Amptec, DPA will also be showing the recently launched d:fine in-ear broadcast headset microphone. Targeted at broadcast hosts and guests who use in-ear monitors to communicate with their producers backstage or to hear foldback from people interviewed outside the studio, the d:fine in-ear microphone is built on the same state-of-the-art capsules and mechanical design that have made DPA’s d:fine range popular.

This model incorporates two cables — microphone and in-ear — that run parallel to provide a neat and clean look. Ear pads in two different sizes are also included, with no audio leakage between the in-ear drivers and the microphone capsule, which can be either omnidirectional or directional. A steel spring construction at the ear hook offers quick mounting for any ear size, while the cable to the integrated in-ear plug(s) can be lengthened or shortened to suit the user. It is easy to adjust headset mount size and, by choosing between left and right ear orientation, it is even possible to give the broadcast host a ‘camera blind’ side.

DPA will also show its podium range, which includes the d:screet miniature podium microphone. Incorporating special interference tube technology that ensures exceptional directivity and off-axis rejection, the d:screet miniature podium microphone features a miniature capsule mounted on a delicate gooseneck that comes in several lengths for table mounting. It can even be used in a wireless configuration by employing the company’s adapter range, which is already used for other miniature microphones.

DPA's podium range also includes the d:dictate podium microphones, which feature modular capsules from DPA's d:dictate recording microphones. These are acclaimed for their exceptional linear frequency responses, high SPL and superior gain before feedback.

The company will complete its IBC 2015 line up by showing its full line of d:screet miniature, d:fine headset and d:vote instrument solutions, as well as the d:facto vocal microphone.

DPA and Amptec will also be running a daily competition at IBC, giving visitors the chance to win a DPA microphone. Anyone who visits the booth during the day and has their badge scanned will receive a pin. If they return at 5pm each day wearing their pin, they will be entered into the prize draw.

Taking over Frankfurt, Germany for three days, the World Club Dome, developed and organised by BigCityBeats, sees ravers come together under one spectacular roof to enjoy the latest and greatest in Electronic Dance Music (EDM).

BigCityBeats has long been synonymous with major opening and closing shows designed by its initiator and organiser Bernd Breiter. This year, both ceremonies featured a new light show – designed by A&O Creative under the direction of lighting designer Manfred “Ollie” Olma.

For the World Club Dome live shows, the company assembled the largest constellation of luminaires ever deployed for an event of its kind. the enabled A&O Creative, the creative department of Bremen-based lighting specialists A&O Technology, under Olma's direction, delivered its newly conceived light show “Big City Lights”.

The resulting show flooded the arena with impressive images of light. The video content was created by Saskia Olma, whilst Marco Niedermeier, CEO of A&O Technology, was active in the role of executive producer.

Olma reveals: “We provided the illumination from inside, yet to spectators it appeared as though it were happening outside the arena. It is not just an architectonic 3D light but extends into 4D and 5D. Spectators are given the impression that they are travelling in time. Based on the interaction of lighting, video, laser and pyrotechnics, the guiding leitmotif for the lighting design stemmed from the doctrine of the Four Elements. It was supported by powerful sound."

In all, A&O Creative installed almost a hundred FALCON searchlights from event partner A&O Technology in the main stage area of the Commerzbank Arena, which for three days became the world’s biggest club. Among them were a LED band made up of Video FALCONs at the front of the main stage. FALCON BEAM and FLOWER units completed the multi-level constellation.

According to the organisers, some 100,000 visitors (up to 40,000 per day) attended at least one of the shows over the course of the weekend, occupying the 500,000sqm party arena to hear some of the most famous EDM DJs and live acts in the world, including stars such as Avicii, David Guetta, Faithless and Hardwell.


Bernd Breiter, CEO of BigCityBeats, commented: “For the BigCityBeats World Club Dome, we developed an opening and closing show with maximum emotional impact. And thanks to A&O, a magnificent team and incredible equipment (including a multitude of high-powered lamps), we managed to create together a new type of spectacle. The BigCityBeats World Club Dome has drawn a massive response worldwide. I’d like to thank most warmly A&O, Marco Niedermeier, Ollie Olma and the entire team that contributed to the realisation of my dream."

Trusst has introduced a new swivel coupler clamp, model CTC-50SC, that is rated to handle heavy-duty loads up to 1,650 pounds (750kg) while providing flexibility, safety and easy installation.

Designed to connect two sections of 50mm truss or piping, the CTC-50SC features captive T-handles that make installation quick and easy. With a T-handle, the clamp can be tightened much faster because it is more ergonomically friendly to the hand than the typical nut used on most swivel couplers – thereby shaving time off the rigging process.

Another convenient feature on the CTC-50SC is that the end of the bolt is flared so that the T-handle and washer cannot spin all the way off and become lost.

The CTC-50SC coupler features a 360° wraparound design that completely encircles the truss, providing extra stability and security. An added advantage of this design is that it won’t cause any scratching or damage to truss surfaces, extending the life of the truss.

Made of rugged extruded aluminum, the CTC-50SC is built for long-lasting reliability. It is TÜV approved for safe, worry-free installation in any application. The CTC-50SC is designed to fit Trusst’s CT290 Truss Series and other major brands of truss with 50mm main chords as well as 2” steel or aluminum pipes. The clamp weighs 1.3kg and has dimensions 292 x 50 x 114mm.

DCC Labs, a Digital TV software integrator and developer specialising in STB and connected client software, is launching its Freestyle software service for TV operators and system integrators.

The new service, which is being unveiled at TV Connect 2015 in London, represents a departure from the traditional industry approach of taking a pre-existing middleware product and shoehorning it into the individual operator’s requirements. Instead, the new service builds a hybrid client from the ground up, using open stack components based on HTML5 and QML to create a pre-integrated, optimised user experience.

Harnessing DCC Labs specialist expertise in building hybrid client stacks for STBs, Smart TVs and other connected devices, the new service is designed to deliver innovative new interactive services, alongside traditional broadcast services on both legacy and new hardware. It is hardware agnostic and comes complete with full lifecycle software support and the guarantee of a back-to-back contract for systems integrators.

TV operators and systems Integrators will also benefit from DCC Labs capability in ensuring that new software will run on both existing and legacy Set Top Boxes (STBs), mobile devices and smart TV’s.

This delivers significant capex savings on hardware replacement alongside the associated costs with ‘ripping and replacing’ legacy STBS. Providing a single point of contact and offering full lifecycle support, the new Freestyle service will also enable operators and integrators to benefit from a reduced total cost of ownership, the company said.

Marek Kielczewski, CEO of DCC Labs, said: “The best approach to middleware is to offer it as a service, rather than a product. The user interface (UI) enables the delivery of the necessary content and not as a standalone component but as an integrated whole, optimised to deliver the best user experience.

“We work closely with the customer to build a service that is going to optimise their objectives and deliver against KPIs. TV operators want to develop an innovative product roadmap to differentiate their offerings from competitors and we are there to work hand-in hand with them to develop customised and bespoke services that make them stand out from the crowd.”

Sony’s new HDC-4300 is the world’s first camera to use three 2/3-inch 4K image sensors. It supports the same B4-mount lenses as well as the same control surfaces as Sony’s HDC-2000 series cameras.

Sony’s next generation of HDC series camera technology provides the ability to use the high magnification wide zoom range lenses currently employed by HD 2/3-inch systems while maintaining an adequate depth of field to properly show all the action in live event broadcasting.

The existing HDLA-1500 series, control and shading systems, viewfinders and master set-up units are all interchangeable between the HD and 4K systems. Directors and operators can keep their approach to live events -- including camera angles, zoom ranges and iris settings – while using familiar camera technology.

“This camera provides 4K capabilities and a workflow that content producers are instantly familiar and comfortable with,” said Vivian Saldanha, business head, content creation sales and market development, Sony Professional Solutions MEA. “We’ve developed an approach that allows the large existing HDC series user base to employ 4K advantages such as 8x high frame rate and 4K cut-out and zoom while using a familiar infrastructure and signal path.”

The new HDC-4300 is capable of 4K/HD operation, with2x, 3x Super Slow Motion as standard, and higher speeds up to 8x available, to produce high-quality replays and specialty program effects.

The camera uses ultra-high-precision alignment technology to realize three 4K sensor on a new prism. This allows the support of the next-generation ITU-R BT.2020 broadcast standard’s widened color space for future-proof masters or post production options for today’s productions shown on tomorrow’s 4K services.

Standard large-format B4-mount lenses mount directly onto the HDC 4300. This gives broadcasters the flexibility needed for live sports broadcasts: 4K capabilities while maintaining their customary HD-lens operating styles.

Sony’s SZC-4001 software package (sold separately) allows broadcasters to take advantage of 4K capabilities.

The SZC-4002 software package (sold separately) enables the system to shoot full HD (1920 x 1080) at frame rates up to 479.52/400 fps, as well as 59.94/50, 119.88/100, and 179.82/150 fps. Users can save these high-frame-rate shots to Sony’s PWS-4400multiport 4K/HD Live Server.

The HDC-4300 accepts the same configurations as existing 4K live systems.

A BPU-4000 baseband processor unit receives the camera signals via SMPTE fiber and connects to an HDCU-2000 or 2500 camera control unit. This provides power and full intercom, tally, and return capabilities.

Users can seamlessly blend an HDC-4300-based system with existing HDC Series camera system. The HD signals from the HDC Series cameras and from the new camera system can be adjusted to match colorimetry.

The addition of other 4K products, such as the PWS-4400 multi-port 4K/HD Live server, a multi-format switcher capable of real-time 4K signal processing based on the MVS-8000X, and Sony’s new BVM-X300 4K OLED or PMW-X300 4K LCD monitors creates an end-to-end 4K live production solution.

The HDC-4300 4K/HD live camera system is planned to be available in summer of 2015.

DPA Microphones has revealed that it will be exhibiting the latest additions to its range of broadcast microphones at this year's upcoming IBC 2015 (booth 8:D70).

On show will be the new d:facto Interview Microphone, which was launched in April at NAB 2015 and is already garnering praise for its ability to perform in even the most demanding conditions.

With voice clarity, linearity and low handling/wind noise, this high-end handheld reporter’s mic is ideal for both outdoor or studio interview settings. The microphone features an omnidirectional 2006V capsule, based on DPA’s original 2006, but with sensitivity adjusted down 12 dB to accommodate typical interview mic and wireless handle sensitivities - ideal for handheld interview use.

In conjunction with its Dutch distributor Amptec, DPA will also be showing the recently launched d:fine in-ear broadcast headset microphone. Targeted at broadcast hosts and guests who use in-ear monitors to communicate with their producers backstage or to hear foldback from people interviewed outside the studio, the d:fine in-ear microphone is built on the same state-of-the-art capsules and mechanical design that have made DPA’s d:fine range popular.

This model incorporates two cables — microphone and in-ear — that run parallel to provide a neat and clean look. Ear pads in two different sizes are also included, with no audio leakage between the in-ear drivers and the microphone capsule, which can be either omnidirectional or directional. A steel spring construction at the ear hook offers quick mounting for any ear size, while the cable to the integrated in-ear plug(s) can be lengthened or shortened to suit the user. It is easy to adjust headset mount size and, by choosing between left and right ear orientation, it is even possible to give the broadcast host a ‘camera blind’ side.

DPA will also show its podium range, which includes the d:screet miniature podium microphone. Incorporating special interference tube technology that ensures exceptional directivity and off-axis rejection, the d:screet miniature podium microphone features a miniature capsule mounted on a delicate gooseneck that comes in several lengths for table mounting. It can even be used in a wireless configuration by employing the company’s adapter range, which is already used for other miniature microphones.

DPA's podium range also includes the d:dictate podium microphones, which feature modular capsules from DPA's d:dictate recording microphones. These are acclaimed for their exceptional linear frequency responses, high SPL and superior gain before feedback.

The company will complete its IBC 2015 line up by showing its full line of d:screet miniature, d:fine headset and d:vote instrument solutions, as well as the d:facto vocal microphone.

DPA and Amptec will also be running a daily competition at IBC, giving visitors the chance to win a DPA microphone. Anyone who visits the booth during the day and has their badge scanned will receive a pin. If they return at 5pm each day wearing their pin, they will be entered into the prize draw.

Bel Digital’s BM-A1-4SHD four channel audio monitor/de-embedder is already a firm favourite with broadcasters, now all of its features are available in a newly-launched larger 2U chassis, providing increased definition in metering and an increase in SPL.

With a reduction of both chassis depth (down to 200 mm) and overall weight, the new BM-A2-4SHD MKII is ideal for OB or Flyaway applications.

The BM-A2-4SHD MKII can de-embed any group of four channels of audio from one of two SDI sources (up to 3G SDI) and display the levels on the front panel meters, as well as providing stereo audio monitoring of any combination of the four channels.

In addition to the auto-detecting SDI inputs, the BM-A2-4SHD MKII has four balanced XLR analogue inputs and two AES3id BNCs. A re-clocked loop-through output is available for the selected SDI source, providing a convenient and cost-effective method of switching SDI feeds to an external monitor. Channels 1 to 4 of the selected source are also routed to two AES3id outputs. Therefore providing format conversion and SDI de-embedding facilities. In addition, the stereo audio monitor mix is available as a separate balanced feed at a pair of XLRs.

Simple to set up and use, like the BM-A1-4SHD, all source selection and main monitoring setup is done from individual controls on the front panel, without any need for menu navigation.

The BM-A2-4SHD MKII’s audio performance is tuned for maximum clarity and delivers a higher SPL compared to the more compact BM-A1-4SHD monitor. Users also have full flexibility in assigning any channel to left, right or both speakers (or neither), and automatic level attenuation compensates for monitoring multiple channels. A ¼” jack headphone output socket is provided on the front panel, which mutes the loudspeakers when in use. If external monitoring on larger speakers is required, the audio level at the rear panel analogue outputs may be configured to be either fixed or to follow the main volume control.

The 53-segment, tricolour LED bargraphs include user setup options to allow a choice of four scales and ballistics (including BBC or DIN PPM, VU and AES/EBU), as well as colour transition points and peak hold.

The front panel LCD provides signal status information of the selected source (including video format of the selected SDI signal and AES lock) and volume level indication.

The number of residential gateways, TV set-top boxes and other home broadband equipment in use that support the Broadband Forum’s TR-069 (CPE WAN Management Protocol) standard will reach 356 million in 2016, according to a new forecast by Ovum.

The trend is being driven by a growing number of service providers who embrace the management protocol to support burgeoning demand for ultrafast-broadband and smart-home services.

The forecast was commissioned by the Broadband Forum standards body responsible for TR-069 as part of a wide-reaching project that saw Ovum survey over 250 global industry executives, including over 100 in senior roles at broadband service providers, about their use of TR-069 and plans for the smart home.

TR-069 is a technical specification that defines a common communication protocol that enables broadband service providers to remotely configure devices, enable end-to-end delivery of new services, and then cost-effectively manage and support them.

Rob Gallagher, Ovum research director, said: “Our survey shows that service providers are already deriving significant value from TR-069, with over six out of ten reporting benefits such as simplified service delivery, faster fault resolution and lower installation costs.

“Adoption of TR-069 will accelerate as a growing number of DSL, fiber and cable service providers alike bake technology into their ultrafast-broadband, multiplay bundling and smart-home strategies.

With the number of connected devices and applications set to grow, they see a clear need to better visualise, support and control activity on the home network, with eight out of ten stating that TR-069 will play a significant role in their smart-home strategies.”

Robin Mersh, CEO of the Broadband Forum, said: “The Forum is delighted to see the continuing growth and expanded use of the TR-069 CPE WAN Management Protocol in broadband operators’ networks and the exciting opportunities that exist as the needs of the connected home move from managing devices to managing services. The survey brings this vibrant market sector to the attention of the whole industry and shows how the complex technical work of TR-069 is making a real practical difference.”

Ovum’s estimate of 269 million TR-069-enabled devices by end-2014 marks an increase on a projection of 250 million made by the global research and advisory firm as part of a 2012 study commissioned by the Broadband Forum. Ovum revised its estimates upwards largely to reflect moves by a growing number of service providers to take greater control over the residential gateway as they accelerate take-up of ultrafast-broadband and multiplay bundles.

Residential gateways will account for the majority of TR-069-enabled CPE, rising from just under 200 million at the end of 2014 to 255 million at the end of 2016. During this period, the percentage of fixed-broadband connections equipped with a TR-069-enabled residential gateway will increase from 26% to 30%.

Riedel Communications, provider of real-time video, audio, data, and communications networks, has launched MicroN – an 80G media distribution network device for the company's MediorNet line of media transport and management solutions.

MicroN, which works seamlessly with the MediorNet MetroN core fiber router, is a high-density signal interface with a complete array of audio, video, and data inputs and outputs. These include 24 SD/HD/3G-SDI I/Os, two MADI optical digital audio ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, two sync reference I/Os, and eight 10G SFP+ high-speed ports. MicroN is available as a fully networked MediorNet device, as well as in a point-to-point edition at a competitive price point.

"In just a single rack unit, the MicroN offers a highly versatile signal interface that can be used in productions of every size and complexity," said Lars Höhmann, Skype & MediorNet product manager at Riedel Communications.

"For the largest media networks built on our MediorNet transport devices, MicroN can serve as a breakout box for a MetroN router and extend connectivity beyond the fiber I/Os to any type of video and audio I/O required," he added. "Or, MicroN can simply work with a MetroN router, with other MicroN units, or in a standalone point-to-point configuration to provide an economical solution for small- to medium-sized productions. And, like the other members of the MediorNet family, MicroN has powerful built-in signal processing features that eliminate the need for many external devices."

In a compact 1RU form factor for rackmount applications, the MicroN offers full support for 10G high-speed video, 3G-SDI video, MADI audio, and Gigabit Ethernet. The system includes an integrated video, audio, and data router and sync reference I/Os, including black burst, tri-level, and word clock. Built-in video and audio processing capabilities include automatic format detection, a frame synchronizer and framestore on all video outputs, a 16-channel audio embedder/de-embedder, a test pattern generator, on-screen and system VITC displays, an integrated sample-rate converter, and audio/video delay lines. The MicroN is powered by a redundant, wide-range AC power supply and also features temperature monitoring and adaptive fan control.

Interconnecting MicroN nodes in a meshed fashion leads to a very scalable, decentralised video routing application. This approach can be used as a replacement for small to medium sized routers and offers a very flexible system design, allowing users to extend the router capacity in both signal capacity and distributed system locations by adding MicroN nodes to the network. Operating in standalone mode, the MicroN can act as a 12x12 router and audio embedder/de-embedder with MADI SRC and delay, and also provides video frame sync and delay.

In a point-to-point deployment, multiple paired MicroN units can provide all of these capabilities plus support for up to 12 bi-directional SDI I/Os, two MADI I/Os, and a Gigabit Ethernet link. Multiple MicroNs can be integrated as a central video router for redundant processing of up to 192x192 HD-SDI signals, and they can also be deployed in a distributed fashion as a decentralised video router.

Thomson Video Networks has launch the FUZE-1 Playout System, a new system that integrates the traditional playout functions of a channel in a box (CiaB) with premium-quality encoding and transcoding for broadcast and OTT delivery.

Ideal for applications such as ad insertion, branding, disaster recovery, and EAS insertion, FUZE-1 provides a rich playout infrastructure together with the ability to process audio and video either directly in the compressed domain or by going back to baseband and re-encoding, the company said.

"Recent years have seen an explosion of new linear TV channels that require their own distinct graphic identity. At the same time, broadcasters know that OTT distribution of premium channels is a must if they want to stay relevant and competitive. Channel-in-a-box solutions are a big step forward, enabling broadcasters to move away from complex and expensive multi-vendor infrastructures for uncompressed playout. But in a typical CiaB system, the playout and compression functions operate as independent silos," said Eric Gallier, vice president, marketing, Thomson Video Networks.

"With FUZE-1, we're breaking down these silos with a versatile and cost-effective solution for MPEG-2, MPEG-4, and HEVC video playout on-premises or in the cloud. As the newest component in our Behind Every Screen® strategy, FUZE-1 fulfills the acquisition, branding, ad insertion, and compression requirements of today's most sophisticated multi-screen media operations."

FUZE-1 is a software-based solution for integrated playout of linear SD and HD television or multi-screen channels as well as broadcast and OTT delivery. Powered by the Thomson Video Networks MediaFlexOS video operating system, FUZE-1 provides advanced graphics, channel switching, sophisticated built-in automation, an integrated asset manager, and premium software transcoding capabilities.

FUZE-1 enables live and file-based playback, advanced graphics overlays including animated bitmaps or text crawls, and video effects such as fade in/out or video squeeze-back. FUZE-1 features a best-of-breed 1-RU IT server equipped with a secure storage system and a set of IP, ASI, and/or SDI interface options.

Using the unique clustering, load balancing, and internal redundancy capabilities of MediaFlexOS, FUZE-1 can be deployed either on-premises at data centers or in virtualised environments.

2wcom, a German manufacturer of broadcast technology products, has just launched its new FM02 FM receiver.

The receiver has the ability to perform the multiple roles of demodulation, source-switching for FM backup, and FM/RDS parameter monitoring.

The FM02 can be used in a variety of ways to meet a range of broadcasting scenarios. The dual-channel capability allows the unit to receive one FM signal for re-broadcasting, while monitoring a second FM signal with the second tuner; or to receive the same signal on both tuners with one acting as a backup. A high-quality FM tuner is key to the FM02’s specification, providing it with substantially better FM performance than is typical in competing demodulator products.

For source-switching in a backup solution, the FM02 receives an MPX signal and loops it through directly to the output. In case of failure the FM02 uses its tuner as a back-up solution to receive the MPX signal off the air. Robust performance is provided by the unit’s ability to loop through the signal even during a power failure. Extending the versatility of the unit still further, the FM02 can be used as part of a monitoring solution for both FM and RDS parameters.

Offering easy remote control via IP and snmp, the FM02 also offers remote audio quality monitoring through its built-in mp3 streaming capability.

“Like many of the products we have developed recently in response to customer requests, the FM02 is a sophisticated device that can be used in so many different ways,” said Werner Drews, managing director of 2wcom. “A high degree of versatility is very valuable to customers today, because it saves investment and operational costs, and accommodates a wide variety of network configurations and strategies, and the ability to make network changes without further cost.”

The FMC02 is a 19” unit with dual tuners and dual antenna inputs.

Thomson Video Networks is conducting France's first demonstration of high-quality video broadcast of five HD channels in a DTTV 24.8 Mbps multiplex, enabled by the company's ViBE EM4000 premium HD/SD encoder and NetProcessor multiplexer/video processor.

The demonstration, which began on Nov. 30 and will continue through Friday, Dec. 5, is being managed by the HD Forum at the NRJ main broadcasting facility in Paris.

Thomson Video Networks created the demonstration to show how advanced compression technology can be used to broadcast five HD channels, instead of the three currently used today in France, in a DTTV 24.8 Mbps multiplex without compromising video quality.

With 1080ix1920 HD content provided by five French broadcasters — Arte, Canal+, France Televisions, NRJ, and TF1 — the ViBE EM4000 encodes the video in MPEG-4 VBR (statistical multiplexing). The HD content is then multiplexed by the NetProcessor, modulated in DVB-T, and displayed on five 46-inch and 55-inch televisions with built-in decoder capabilities.

"Worldwide, broadcasters on DTTV platforms are looking for the best picture quality at the lowest possible bandwidth. In this demonstration, we're showing how dramatic advancements in compression technology are providing a migration path to HD and offering a better experience for viewers," said Claude Perron, CTO at Thomson Video Networks. "Although we're focusing on the French DTTV platform here, the technology can be applied to any DTTV platform using the EM4000 and NetProcessor."

Advanced Media, a Dubai-based distributor of broadcast equipment, has brought the Freefly TERO to the Middle East region.

The Freefly TERO is a customised radio-controlled car camera mount, which Advanced Media describes as “a completely exciting new way to move the camera.”

Placing a camera in a M?VI cradle on a TERO allows for a dynamic low camera angle, coupled with full 3-axis control of the M?VI stabiliser to create never-before-seen shots. With Freefly’s custom vibration isolation system on a car as smooth as this, users can rethink what is possible from a chase car.

From the outset, Freefly knew the TERO had to be fast, agile and smooth. Drawing on feedback from professional remote control car racers, Freefly created a system that has amazing acceleration and precise control. The system also can be outfitted with an optional cockpit camera to allow the driver to control the vehicle as if they were driving it. This allows for out-of-sight operation, as well as piloting the car into dangerous situations or stunts while maintaining a safe operating distance.

The TERO is essentially a small robot, and videographers around the world appear set to put it to use in chase scenes, keeping pace with animals, mingling with dancers or just filming in tight spaces.
Advanced Media is the exclusive distributor for Freefly TERO in the Middle East.

Taking over Frankfurt, Germany for three days, the World Club Dome, developed and organised by BigCityBeats, sees ravers come together under one spectacular roof to enjoy the latest and greatest in Electronic Dance Music (EDM).

BigCityBeats has long been synonymous with major opening and closing shows designed by its initiator and organiser Bernd Breiter. This year, both ceremonies featured a new light show – designed by A&O Creative under the direction of lighting designer Manfred “Ollie” Olma.

For the World Club Dome live shows, the company assembled the largest constellation of luminaires ever deployed for an event of its kind. the enabled A&O Creative, the creative department of Bremen-based lighting specialists A&O Technology, under Olma's direction, delivered its newly conceived light show “Big City Lights”.

The resulting show flooded the arena with impressive images of light. The video content was created by Saskia Olma, whilst Marco Niedermeier, CEO of A&O Technology, was active in the role of executive producer.

Olma reveals: “We provided the illumination from inside, yet to spectators it appeared as though it were happening outside the arena. It is not just an architectonic 3D light but extends into 4D and 5D. Spectators are given the impression that they are travelling in time. Based on the interaction of lighting, video, laser and pyrotechnics, the guiding leitmotif for the lighting design stemmed from the doctrine of the Four Elements. It was supported by powerful sound."

In all, A&O Creative installed almost a hundred FALCON searchlights from event partner A&O Technology in the main stage area of the Commerzbank Arena, which for three days became the world’s biggest club. Among them were a LED band made up of Video FALCONs at the front of the main stage. FALCON BEAM and FLOWER units completed the multi-level constellation.

According to the organisers, some 100,000 visitors (up to 40,000 per day) attended at least one of the shows over the course of the weekend, occupying the 500,000sqm party arena to hear some of the most famous EDM DJs and live acts in the world, including stars such as Avicii, David Guetta, Faithless and Hardwell.


Bernd Breiter, CEO of BigCityBeats, commented: “For the BigCityBeats World Club Dome, we developed an opening and closing show with maximum emotional impact.

Trusst has introduced a new swivel coupler clamp, model CTC-50SC, that is rated to handle heavy-duty loads up to 1,650 pounds (750kg) while providing flexibility, safety and easy installation.

Designed to connect two sections of 50mm truss or piping, the CTC-50SC features captive T-handles that make installation quick and easy. With a T-handle, the clamp can be tightened much faster because it is more ergonomically friendly to the hand than the typical nut used on most swivel couplers – thereby shaving time off the rigging process.

Another convenient feature on the CTC-50SC is that the end of the bolt is flared so that the T-handle and washer cannot spin all the way off and become lost.

The CTC-50SC coupler features a 360° wraparound design that completely encircles the truss, providing extra stability and security. An added advantage of this design is that it won’t cause any scratching or damage to truss surfaces, extending the life of the truss.

Made of rugged extruded aluminum, the CTC-50SC is built for long-lasting reliability. It is TÜV approved for safe, worry-free installation in any application. The CTC-50SC is designed to fit Trusst’s CT290 Truss Series and other major brands of truss with 50mm main chords as well as 2” steel or aluminum pipes. The clamp weighs 1.3kg and has dimensions 292 x 50 x 114mm.

Dubai could be the next target for live-event specialist Flash, which is behind events such as the Abu Dhabi Formula 1 Grand Prix and Yasalam festival.

The company, based in Abu Dhabi, is known for the success of it’s events in the capital but is looking beyond the emirate’s borders to new territory, operations director Lee Charteris told DPME.com.

“I think [Dubai] would be a natural progression for us. We want to entertain people and there are people there to be entertained so why wouldn’t we do that,” he said.

He expressed interest in Dubai’s venues but pointed to a ‘as well as rather than instead of’ situation that would see shows in both of the UAE’s major cities.

“I dream of a scenario when someone plays in Abu Dhabi and then drives up the road and plays in Dubai. Why not? That happens in lots of other countries in the world.”

But according to Charteris, this is long-term plan.

“It depends on the artist obviously, I think there’s people that could sell [shows in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi] but I think you would be pushing it right now to do that. But I think it’s only a matter of time,” he says.

And this could mean more artists visiting the region.

“If we could get into having artists that played maybe Doha, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Muscat, wherever it was, then we would be able to bring in more artists because the one thing about destination shows is that it’s quite hard to convince people to come because they need three or four days out of their lives, as opposed to if they were on tour, it being one day of their life,” he explains.

And it’s not just different locations on the cards for Flash but more high-tech shows. Charteris is enthusiastic about new technology and said the UAE could see some interesting additions to the firm’s concerts before year-end.

“I’m always looking at new ways to entertain, and I think 3D, while still in its infancy, will definitely become a part of shows. We’ve already had some discussions about hologram technology with one of the acts that wants to come over here. They would be here but it allows them to be in more than one place on the stage. So that’s something that’s being battered back and forth for one of this year’s acts,” he said

Dolby Laboratories recently partnered with Thomson Video Networks and STMicroelectronics (ST) to demonstrate the first implementation of a complete encoding-decoding chain for HD and Ultra HD broadcast based on the new Dolby AC-4 audio codec.

At the heart of a demonstration at the Dolby ATSC 3.0 showcase in Atlanta is Thomson Video Networks' ViBE VS7000 multi-screen encoding/transcoding platform and the ST Ultra HD STiH418 System-on-Chip (SoC).

Thomson Video Networks demonstrates high-efficiency video coding (HEVC) for Ultra HD video delivery featuring the integration of the Dolby AC-4 encoder with the ViBE VS7000 and a set-top box (STB) powered by ST's HEVC-capable SoC.

“The Dolby AC-4 audio format addresses the current and future needs of next-generation video and audio entertainment services,” said Giles Baker, SVP, broadcast business group, Dolby Laboratories. “It enables the distribution of future generations of media content and experiences across the broadest range of devices with far better bandwidth efficiencies compared to today's solutions.”

Eric Gallier, vice president of marketing, Thomson Video Networks, added: “The emerging Dolby AC-4 codec is rapidly becoming a new standard for next-generation audio encoding; in fact, it's known as the audio counterpart to the emerging HEVC video codec. Working together, AC-4 and HEVC provide a coherent and efficient solution to the challenge of transporting Ultra HD content on television networks.

“As one of the first-ever worldwide implementations of HEVC, our ViBE VS7000 is the ideal platform with which to demonstrate the ground breaking capabilities of Dolby AC-4 and ST's SoC for next-generation Ultra HD video offerings on any type of device and over any type of network."
