Haivision Makito HD Encoders Power Live Video Distribution for Marlins Park

New IP Video Installation from Daktronics and Haivision Boosts Fans’ Game Day Experience

MONTREAL and CHICAGO — August 22, 2013 — Haivision today announced that the Miami Marlins are using Haivision’s Makito HD video encoders to stream live video of the games to fans throughout Marlins Park on more than 700 flat-panel screens in private suites, concourses, clubs and retail shops.

Working with Daktronics, a leading provider of display technology and media control systems for stadiums and venues, the Miami Marlins have deployed Haivision’s Makito encoders to bring real-time video of the game into one of the most sophisticated large screen and IPTV systems in the world. For Daktronics and the Marlins, HD over IP yields significant flexibility in system design and media control. For Miami Marlins fans, the integrated system gives them the confidence to leave their seats, explore the ballpark and visit concessions and retail areas, without missing any key moments of the game.

With extremely low latency, highly efficient H.264 video compression, and 1080p60 video quality, Haivision’s Makito HD encoders are designed for IPTV and HD digital signage, providing real-time live action with imperceptible delay. The Marlins can now show the game from different angles on the field, display video from other games in progress, and include any other type of dynamic audio and video content to entertain the crowd.

“The digital display technology, featuring the Haivision Makito HD encoders at the center, is a huge part of the game day presentation,” said Claude Delorme, Executive Vice President, Operations and Events, Miami Marlins. “We relied on Daktronic’s expertise in choosing the right products and solutions to create our display and video system, and we were not disappointed. The Makito’s low latency features and superior audio and video content delivery were key in making them the perfect encoding choice for us. Marlins Park is now capable of delivering video over IP, successfully creating the ultimate experience for our fans.”

“Daktronics creates exceptional fan experiences within stadiums and other venues,” said JoAnne Gaudreau, vice president of marketing at Haivision. “Integrated video distribution plays a key role in fan engagement and participation. With the Makito, the Marlins deliver immediate media experiences to fans wherever they are by taking advantage of high quality low latency video over IP throughout multiple venues.”

“The advantages of network video are clear for large scale deployments, but we needed to avoid the pitfall of solutions that introduce significant delay between the action on the field and the displays within public areas and private boxes,” said Matt Anderson, control systems marketing manager for Daktronics. “There’s nothing more important in the sports world than right here, right now, and that’s why real-time, low latency is so important. Haivision’s Makito combines the best HD picture quality with incredible performance allowing us the flexibility to deliver video anywhere within the facility with ease.”

Wohler RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform Version 8.1 Release Makes IBC Debut

New Release Boasts Built-In Intelligence and Unparalleled Processing Speeds That Enable Highly Efficient, Highly Automated Consolidated Workflows

SAN FRANCISCO — Aug. 21, 2013 — Wohler Technologies today announced that RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform(TM) version 8.1, a major release, will be demonstrated at IBC2013. Becoming available to users worldwide this September, version 8.1 offers a matchless combination of performance and quality across a range of intensive media processing workflows. Featuring a brand-new media processing engine, the new version not only enables content transformation at unparalleled speeds in the industry today, but also performs a complete intelligent analysis of all inbound media at equally impressive speeds.

The platform’s intelligent analysis extends previous capabilities for retaining technical metadata while introducing frame-level metadata retention that facilitates smooth workflow orchestration and enables a high level of automation. RadiantGrid 8.1 also provides optimized video pipeline features such as anamorphic video handling, 2K/4K support, and higher bit depths of up to 16 bit YUV. Also available with this release, as an extended product feature, is full color legalization in both the PAL and NTSC domains. Finally, at the audio level, the platform’s new media processing engine parallelizes complex audio loudness correction alongside the video at speeds never before seen.

“With the version 8.1 release, we have completely re-engineered the very heart of the platform, culminating in an even more powerful video pipeline engine that includes advanced processing capabilities to make the RadiantGrid platform the industry’s most sophisticated and fastest end-to-end media transformation solution,” said Kirk Marple, chief software architect for Wohler RadiantGrid. “During IBC2013 we will demonstrate how this power combines with the platform’s built-in intelligence to speed and simplify critical tasks across the media delivery chain and, in turn, support effective workflow consolidation.”

The Wohler RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform provides a seamless software architecture that combines intensive media processing capabilities, such as transcoding, standards conversion, audio processing, caption processing, and quality control, with highly intelligent content management fabric and workflow orchestration layers. Based on an extensible service-oriented architecture, the platform integrates smoothly with editorial, archive, traffic, business process, and rights management systems.

RadiantGrid Version 8.1 contains a newly accelerated media processing engine that performs complete intelligent analysis of all media inputs, with the platform’s content management fabric retaining technical metadata at the container, essence, and frame levels. Because this analysis is automated, users never need to tell the platform what type of content is being provided — just the output they require. In addition to these new advanced processing techniques, RadiantGrid version 8.1 also supports fully compliant OTT offerings for Microsoft(R) Smooth Streaming, MPEG-DASH, HLS, H.265/HEVC, and more.

The RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform version 8.1 release is now part of any new RadiantGrid platform Wohler supplies, and as with all RadiantGrid releases, is available to existing customers as an upgrade within their support and maintenance agreement. No new or special hardware is required.

Further information about Wohler’s RadiantGrid business line is available at www.wohler.com.

Professional Wireless Systems Brings Its Star-Studded Wireless Equipment to Telemundo’s “Premios Tu Mundo” Awards Show

On-Site Technical Expertise Ensures Exceptional Coverage for Telemundo Awards Show

MIAMI, AUGUST 22, 2013—For the second year in a row, Professional Wireless Systems (PWS), a Masque Sound Company and experts in supplying and supporting wireless systems for live and broadcast events, was on-site to support the red carpet and live broadcast of Telemundo’s second annual “Premios Tu Mundo” awards show at the American Airlines Arena in Miami.

The pre-show “La Alfombra de Premios Tu Mundo,” featured celebrities like Eva Longoria, Daddy Yankee and many of Hispanic Hollywood’s top celebrities.

“We are thrilled to have once again worked with Telemundo on this event, especially at the American Airlines Arena,” says Jim Van Winkle, general manager of PWS. “Having just been there for the NBA Finals and other events throughout the year, we know this venue extremely well. This allowed us to provide all the necessary equipment needed for a smooth event.”

PWS supplied the network with microphones, IFBs and wireless communications for the red carpet event. In addition, PWS provided the Shure Axient system, Telex BTR-800 wireless intercoms and IFBs for the live broadcast, as well as onsite support from John Garrido. PWS also worked closely Brooks Schroeder, who handled frequency coordination for the show and Acoutech, which provided the PA and monitor systems, microphones and in-ear monitors.

In addition to providing some of the wireless equipment, PWS monitored the event for unregistered wireless devices alongside Schroeder. “We policed the area to ensure that everyone was in compliance, so that everything would run smoothly, and there was no interference during the live broadcast,” notes Van Winkle.

The team also worked with Telemundo to solve any challenges having to do with the video wall. “Whether it’s the video wall or chance of rain in the Miami area, PWS brings its strong history of being a solutions provider with it to each and every event we work on. This allows us to act as a partner to everyone involved in making this a successful and interference-free event,” concludes Van Winkle.

The ZIG-CX-100 can be used as a point-to-point solution or integrated with matrix switching equipment to extend inputs or outputs to remote locations.

“We developed the ZIG-CX-100 to bring High-Speed HDMI video standards and full feature set – including 3D, bi-directional RS-232 and IR – to infrastructures that utilize coaxial rather than category cables,” said Ed Dellalyan, President of Zigen. “With this new solution, integrators now have a viable alternative for complex jobs involving long distance HDMI video with embedded audio transmission. This is something that’s been needed for some time in commercial installations, older homes with existing coax, and locations with outdoor displays where coax is more durable. As such, not only does it solve problems, it creates opportunities.”

The ZIG-CX-100 is an ideal solution for retrofit work or upgrades where it is impractical or impossible to run new category cables. It works especially well in locations that require multiple displays to show the same HDMI content as it enables up to 250 units to be linked in series to deliver the content to up to 250 displays. The ZIG-CX-100 is priced at $699 MSRP and orders are being accepted now for immediate delivery.
