Betamobil Builds Innovative HD OB Truck on Riedel Real-Time A/V and Communications Network

WUPPERTAL, Germany — March 20, 2013 — Riedel Communications, a leading provider of real-time networks for video, audio, and communications, today announced that Berlin-based mobile production and SNG provider Betamobil has integrated Riedel technology into its newest HD OB truck. At the heart of its new six-camera unit, HD6, Betamobil uses a comprehensive system that combines Riedel’s Artist digital matrix intercom and the company’s fiber-based MediorNet media network.

“We believe that the future of mobile productions lies within flexible setup scenarios that can be adapted to the needed application,” said Thomas Busch, CEO at Betamobil. “Riedel’s real-time networks, such as MediorNet and Artist, enable us to realize incredibly flexible setups that can be quickly reconfigured.”

Betamobil uses a wide range of small and large OB vans that can be linked together and scaled up to form larger systems as the event or application demands. A Ross Carbonite(TM) switcher for vision mixing and a Soundcraft Vi1(TM) audio console are also key components of their design philosophy.

The Artist system in HD6 consists of an Artist 64 mainframe, which serves as the foundation for a total of 12 Artist 1000 series control panels. Because the modular Artist system can be expanded easily to 1024 x 1024 non-blocking ports, Betamobil is assured long-term investment security. Seamless integration with other OB trucks or broadcast production facilities is enabled via a simple fiber link. Also, by integrating Riedel’s RockNet 100 digital audio network system with MediorNet and their Soundcraft Vi1 console, Betamobil was able to establish analog audio signal distribution without the need for a dedicated audio router.

For video distribution and signal processing in HD6, Betamobil uses two MediorNet modular mainframes equipped with Riedel’s MN-HDP-6 video cards. The MN-HDP-6 cards offer two inputs and outputs, as well as two freely assignable connections with up-, down-, and cross-conversion on all inputs and outputs. They also allow for quad-split applications and support further signal processing such as audio embedding/de-embedding and frame synchronization. In addition, Betamobil uses two MediorNet Compact PRO mainframes as stagebox systems for remote applications. All signal processing and conversion options are available across all MediorNet mainframes.

“With this truck we have realized a very efficient just-enough concept without sacrificing production quality at all. It’s just a very efficient set-up based on the MediorNet network approach. This allows us to adjust quickly to the needs of a specific production. By our approach we don’t have to always carry the expensive overhead for the few productions where we utilize 100 percent of a big truck’s capacity. If we need more cameras, editing, or audio resources, we just add it to the MediorNet network by adding another small truck or external gear. This flexibility allows us to cover more productions and to be more competitive,” said Busch.

The Betamobil HD6 has already been used at various productions such as the Berlin Fashion Week.

Recent Consumer Survey Shows 75 Percent of Pay-TV Subscribers Highly Likely to Use Multiscreen Live Linear Service

New Study by The Diffusion Group and iStreamPlanet Reveals High Revenue Potential in Streaming Live Linear Channels to Multiple Devices

LAS VEGAS — March 19, 2013 — iStreamPlanet, a leading provider of live event and live linear streaming video solutions, today released the findings of a recent consumer survey it performed with The Diffusion Group (TDG), a research and advisory firm focused on the evolving broadband media ecosystem. The survey reveals the high value viewers place on live and live linear streaming video, resulting in a growing opportunity for content owners and distributors. Key findings point to strong consumer receptiveness to having access to multiscreen live linear content, and also indicate improving consumer perceptions, increasing consumer value, and potential for driving significant revenue.

In January, TDG queried 1,000 U.S. adult broadband users — 950 of which were pay-TV subscribers — about their use and perceptions of accessing live linear video on Internet-connected devices. Among the telling results: 75 percent of pay-TV subscribers were highly likely to use multiscreen live linear services if offered by their operator. What’s more, 49 percent also said that if their current pay-TV operator offered on-demand access but not live access on Internet-connected devices, and they could get such a package elsewhere at the same price, then they would definitely switch. The implication is that live linear TV Everywhere promotes retention and decreases churn, and that offering a live linear TV Everywhere service could help bring back some of the subscribers that operators have lost in the last few years.

“TDG fields numerous research projects each year, testing a variety of new applications and services, but it’s unusual to see such a strong, positive consumer reaction as we did in this survey,” said Michael Greeson, founding partner and director of consumer research at The Diffusion Group. “This survey is further evidence that the time is now for content providers to start deploying live linear streaming broadcasts to all devices, or risk losing subscribers who are looking for this level of connected media from their pay TV operator.”

The survey also found that multiscreen live linear services could not only generate new revenue from digital advertising, but might also bring content distributors significant additional subscriber revenues. Half of survey respondents said they were likely to sign up for a service priced at $10 per month, and 60 percent were likely to sign up for the service if it were priced at $5 per month.

When asked whether they would sign up for a pay-TV service that included multiscreen live linear access, 30 percent of those without a pay-TV subscription said they were likely or highly likely to do so. Among those who do have a subscription, 49 percent said they would definitely watch live linear content on their Internet-connected devices if the service were offered as part of their regular pay-TV service (at no extra charge).

“Multiscreen live video and live linear channels are critical to meeting consumer expectations,” said Robin Cole, vice president of product and services for iStreamPlanet. “We are seeing this demand firsthand in the evolving business needs of our customers. Our goal at iStreamPlanet is to remove the technological barriers by providing a cost-effective and scalable solution to deliver live TV Everywhere experiences.”

The survey findings are detailed in a white paper available for download at http://www.istreamplanet.com/multiscreen-whitepaper/.

Bittree to Feature High-Performance Patch Panels for Fiber-Optic and Ethernet Cabling at 2013 NAB Show

GLENDALE, Calif. — March 20, 2013 — Bittree, a manufacturer of high-quality audio and video patching systems, today announced that its line of fiber-optic feed-through and data patch panels has been updated with new, easy-to-use lacing bars and flush-mounted keystone connectors. Bittree will demonstrate its updated fiber and data patching solutions in booth SU6521 at the 2013 NAB Show.

“The boundaries between broadcast, pro A/V, and IT are becoming less distinct as emerging technologies continue to shape broadcast operations and centers for content creation and distribution,” said Glenn Garrard, president of Bittree. “In the face of these trends, we recognized a need for patching systems to accommodate fiber-optic, Ethernet, and other data-related cabling. With the expansion of fiber-optic technology across multiple industries, Bittree’s fiber panels can be used in multiple applications from broadcast studios to server rooms.”

Bittree now offers a line of data system keystone panels for LC/LC, SC/SC, and ST/ST connections. As the industry’s first fiber panels to provide optional designation strips, these systems enable customized combinations of LC, SC, and ST couplers with the ability to mix and match accordingly. Available in 1RU and 2RU with configurations of 1×12, 1×24, and 2×16, the Bittree fiber-optic panels provide the versatility to meet a wide range of project requirements. With the addition of the fiber product line, Bittree now provides a single source for resellers and integrators to purchase both copper and fiber patching systems.

Because data systems are gaining popularity in broadcast and pro A/V environments, Bittree has added an additional line of Cat 6 feed-through data panels and bulkheads to accommodate integrators’ needs and allow Bittree customers to purchase more solutions directly from the company. Like the fiber panels, the Cat 6 systems feature optional designation strips as well as silk-screened front panels to simplify patching for technicians.

“These high-performance patching solutions are just the latest example of Bittree’s commitment to offer unique products that deliver maximum flexibility and fit the needs of a wide variety of professionals,” added Garrard.

More information about Bittree’s full range of patchbays and data system panels is available online at www.bittree.com.

Boston-Area Rental House Receives First Fujinon PL 85-300 Cabrio PL Mount Zoom in New England

Talamas expects strong demand for PL 85-300 and PL 19-90 Cabrio lenses for large sensor digital cameras

Wayne, N.J. – FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Optical Devices Division is announcing that Talamas Sales and Rentals, a broadcast equipment rental house in Boston, recently took delivery of the new FUJINON PL 85-300 (ZK3.5×85), making it the first in the region to receive the HDTV PL mount zoom lens. Talamas, which placed its order for the FUJINON Premier PL 85-300 lens when it was announced in November 2012, already owns and rents out the FUJINON PL 19-90 Cabrio (ZK4.7×19) PL Mount zoom lens.

“The new PL 85-300 is a perfect complement to our PL 19-90,” said Dave Talamas, president of Talamas. “The design of both Cabrio lenses provides exactly what the market needs. These fast, lightweight lenses offer ideal focal ranges and a built-in handgrip zoom control at a sweet spot price point that makes them ideal for many applications.”

Talamas received its new FUJINON PL 85-300 Cabrio lens in mid-February. The FUJINON PL 19-90 Cabrio lens, received last year, has already been rented to several productions requiring the look of the large sensor shallow depth of field with the ease of use. The Fujinon Cabrio PL mount lenses are a welcome addition to Talamas’ digital cinematography lens inventory.

“Demand and feedback for the PL 19-90 have been very strong, but our customers were asking us for something a little bit longer. We felt that beauty shots, nature cinematography, sports documentaries, and other applications would benefit from this new lens’ longer focal length,” said Anthony Bottaro, Talamas’ chief engineer. “With the growing popularity of digital video cameras with Super 35mm image sensors and PL mounts, we’re confident that demand will be strong for both of these ‘crossover’ lenses.”

Bottaro considers them crossover lenses because they combine the look, resolution, and other picture attributes associated with large sensor PL mount zoom lenses, but with the compact, lightweight “run and gun” functionality ENG/EFP shooters expect. Talamas’ PL mount camera inventory currently includes: the Canon EOS C300 PL, Sony PMW-F3, Sony PMW-F5, Sony PMW-F55, RED Epic, and ARRI Alexa cameras.

“Having the digital servo handgrip right on the lens for zoom control—in combination with today’s small, lightweight digital cameras–makes this lens particularly appealing to ENG shooters who like to be agile and follow the action,” said Daniel Ardizzoni, senior video technician in the rental department at Talamas.

While those shooting ENG-style are right at home with the servo unit attached to the lens, both Cabrio lens models are designed to allow cinematographers to detach the handgrip and shoot instead with industry-standard cine motors and matte boxes, as well as FUJINON wired or wireless controllers. The digital servo on Cabrio lenses has 16-bit encoding to ensure that lens data output is extremely accurate.

The FUJINON Premier PL 19-90 Cabrio lens offers a 19-90mm focal range at T2.9 and weight of only 2.7kg with servo, while the FUJINON PL 85-300 offers a focal length of 85-220mm at T2.9 and 300mm at T4.0. The weight of the PL 85-300 is 3.0kg with servo and 2.5kg without. Both models offer flange focal distance adjustment, 200-degree focus rotation, a short MOD, a macro function for close-ups of objects and the images captured cover a 31.5mm diagonal sensor size.

According to Thom Calabro, director, Marketing and Product Development, FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Optical Devices Division, “We value our long association with Talamas and we look forward to continuing to support their needs as their equipment rental business grows and expands.”

Small Tree to Increase Visibility at NAB Show with PixelFLEX LED Video Curtain Wall

Small Tree, a leading shared storage technology manufacturer, plans to make a splash at this year’s National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) trade show with the help of the innovative, ultra-flexible and lightweight LED video curtain wall from PixelFLEX.

The visually captivating video curtain wall will hang above Small Tree’s 20×30 booth (SL6005), making it easy for attendees to spot where they’ll need to go for robust and affordable shared storage systems to maximize their workflow. PixelFLEX’s 20mm LED video curtain’s unmatched flexibility will provide attendees with a 360 degree view of Small Tree’s booth from anywhere in the South Lower Hall.

“NAB is the most important show of the year for us,” said Corky Seeber, president of Small Tree. “As such, we’re investing substantial resources to increase visitors to our booth. Having used PixelFLEX’s curtain wall at last year’s show, we’ve seen firsthand the impact the technology has on getting people to notice you.”

Videos and images can be sent to PixelFLEX’s screens using any computer with a DVI-D connection. Each typical screen panel is approximately 8×4, but modifications can be made easily to meet specific needs of the consumer – panels can be attached together with PixelFLEX’s proprietary quicklock system.

Flexible in all directions, PixelFLEX LED Curtains are able to bend and shape around structures for a more creative display effect and can be stored in a single road case to simplify shipping. This flexibility, in combination with the product’s extraordinary light weight – PixelFLEX LED Curtains range from 4.5 lbs to 19.9 lbs per square meter, which is 60 to 90 percent less than most other LED video screens – provides substantial savings on transportation costs and space.

“Given our company’s continued growth, we’re increasing our booth space at the show this year,” Seeber stated. “With the traffic the PixelFLEX curtain wall generated to our booth last year, it was an easy decision to use them again.”
