VMP Announces DVR Lockbox for Mobile/Rackmount Applications; Shipping Late Q4

STEVENSVILLE, Md., Oct. 18, 2011 — Video Mount Products (videomount.com), a leading provider of mounting solutions for the security, commercial, CI, residential, and pro audio/video markets, is proud to announce the launch of the new DVR-MB1 Mobile/Rackmount DVR Lockbox. Shipping in late Q4, the DVR-MB1 has an MSRP of $229.95.

“The DVR-MB1 is an alternative to our popular DVR-LB1 and DVR-LB2 DVR lockboxes,” explained Keith Fulmer, president of Video Mount Products. “The DVR-MB1 has been designed specifically for the peace of mind of those who require the flexibility of DVRs being either portable or rack mounted in settings that may be prone to theft or vandalism.”

According to Fulmer, high-end electronics have become a staple in today’s security, CI, residential, and commercial marketplaces. As these expensive technologies and equipment, including DVRs, find homes in more and more commercial and professional settings, additional security measures need to be taken to insure these electronics are not harmed or stolen without compromising the unit’s functionality and portability.

Additional features of the VMP DVR-MB1 lockbox include:
• Interior dimensions 17” W x 13.8” D x 3” H
• Lockbox is mountable on left, right, bottom, and rear sides for mobile applications
• Securing strips included for DVR in mobile applications
• Removable top for installation secured with security hardware
• Front door secured with key lock
• Single fan included and mounting locations for up to four fans

TBN’s HD Upgrade of Tustin Production Center Builds Audio Monitoring on Wohler AMP2-16-3G Units

SAN FRANCISCO — Oct. 18, 2011 — Wohler Technologies today announced that Christian broadcaster Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) has installed nine AMP2-16-3G audio monitors in an HD upgrade of its Tustin Production Center. The new monitors, delivered and installed by systems integrator TV Magic, enable simultaneous real-time monitoring of 16 audio channels of HD-SDI feeds.

“When we first designed the Tustin production center with TBN, our goal was to establish a robust and reliable facility that would streamline the network’s operations and allow for more effective monitoring of multiple channel feeds,” said Steve Rosen, TV Magic president and CEO. “Wohler units met the requirements of that SD installation with ease, and the AMP2-16-3G today is proving its quality and value within TBN’s HD production operations. TBN can count on the AMP2-16-3G’s continued reliability, knowing that it’s backed by great support from Wohler.”

The compact AMP2-16-3G systems offer powerful monitoring capabilities, a highly configurable interface, and a rich feature set that simplifies monitoring at the TBN production facility. In addition to providing real-time level metering for 16 channels of audio, the Wohler monitor provides metadata display and loudness metering, as well as Dolby(R) D, E, and DD+ support. The unit’s intuitive interface, complete with an integrated help system, allows users to manage presets, channel clusters, and mixing and routing. The Wohler system adds further convenience by enabling insertion of the intercom signal into headsets along with the HD-SDI input.

“TBN’s Tustin production facility manages a complex variety of signals, and the AMP2-16-3G provides the flexibility and rock-solid reliability that are so critical in a live production environment,” said Don Bird, chief marketing officer at Wohler. “We’re pleased that through this installation, Wohler products continue to serve as the foundation for the Tustin facility’s monitoring operations.”

Further information about Wohler and the company’s products is available at www.wohler.com.

Sound Works Productions Supports ALS Walk

CHICAGO—Now in its ninth year, the Les Turner Foundation ALS Walk 4 Life recently took place at Montrose Harbor in Chicago, and turned to Sound Works Productions (Frankfort, Illinois) for their audio production needs. The Walk4Life is one of the world’s largest ALS gatherings, and this year more than 5,000 walkers gathered to add to the already $6 million in pledges received since the Foundation began.

“The Foundation determined that this year they needed a sound system that would let speeches and music be heard throughout the entire park setting,” states Daniel Nickleski, Sound Works Productions, Inc. “We decided that our NEXO GEO S12 system would be the perfect fit.” The audio rig was comprised of seven NEXO GEO S1210s and one GEO S1230 line array per side along with four RS18 Ray Subs per side and three NEXO NXAMP 4x4s. The walkers were treated to music by Beatles cover band American English whose engineer, Nickleski said, was ‘absolutely thrilled with the NEXO sound system and one of the best mid-sized line arrays he has ever mixed on.’

“Every last person could hear all speeches without issue,” Nickleski added. “At the end of the event, the client said they were thrilled with the quality of audio and service we provided.”

LEIGHTRONIX Enhances Video Server with Multi-Zone Playback Capabilities

LEIGHTRONIX announced today the release of Zoned TOTAL INFO, a new multi-zone display feature for UltraNEXUS and UltraNEXUS-SDI digital video servers. The new feature combines multiple digital media resources, including video clips and promos, slides, and slide show sequences, with dynamic, real-time weather and news information.

Zoned TOTAL INFO provides three video zones that include a primary digital media playback window and two dynamic TOTAL INFO data content zones. One of the TOTAL INFO zones is dedicated to local weather information while the other rotates between user-selected news, sports, metro traffic, financials, and general interest “dailies” data categories. The dynamic data is automatically retrieved from the online TOTAL INFO data server and then rendered for display over thematic graphic backgrounds specific to each data category.

Zoned TOTAL INFO may be set up to automatically display between programs as part of the UltraNEXUS/UltraNEXUS-SDI Virtual Channel playlists, two independent, default looping video resources that fill unscheduled programming time on each of the video server playback channels. Alternatively, Zoned TOTAL INFO may be enabled to run full time as a complement to scheduled and immediate program playback.

TOTAL INFO adds visual impact/quality to local broadcast and cable channels with a striking montage of informational and entertainment programming comprised of dynamic data and custom user graphics layered over backgrounds. TOTAL INFO has gained tremendous popularity among locally originated television operations such as public, educational, and government (PEG) cable access channels as well as private, in-house communication networks in corporate, hospitality, medical, and institutional settings.

A one year subscription to TOTAL INFO is included with UltraNEXUS and UltraNEXUS-SDI video servers and may be added as an option to NEXUS video server systems. The multi-zone enhancement is exclusive to the UltraNEXUS and UltraNEXUS-SDI. Current UltraNEXUS and UltraNEXUS-SDI users with active TOTAL INFO subscriptions will be able to access the new display feature through a firmware upgrade at no cost.
