Wohler HDCC Cards Enabling Closed-Caption Translation Make First European Show Appearance at IBC2013

AMSTERDAM — Sept. 14, 2013 — Wohler Technologies today announced that closed-caption translation capabilities on the company’s HDCC ancillary data management platform will make their European debut at IBC2013. The new additions to the HDCC Series — HDCC-708xWST-OG2 and HDCC-WSTx708-OG2 cards support automatic, real-time translation between 608/708 and WST/OP-47 captions in baseband applications.

“The HDCC Series is all about automating and simplifying ancillary data management so that broadcasters can establish more efficient and more streamlined media workflows,” said John Terrey, vice president sales, Wohler. “With first-of-a-kind single-card functionality and on-the-fly closed-caption translation, these new HDCC cards give users very attractive solutions for overcoming key challenges in managing ancillary data insertion, extraction, and format conversion within baseband video signals.”

Replacing complex solutions and workflows that use several devices in tandem, the HDCC-708xWST-OG2 and HDCC-WSTx708-OG2 allow broadcast and postproduction facilities to automate real-time translation of 608/708 captions to WST/OP-47 captions and of WST/OP-47 captions to 608/708 captions, respectively. In addition to providing a straightforward solution for on-the-fly closed-caption translation, the simple, fast, single-card approach minimizes maintenance requirements and eliminates time spent re-entering captions.

The new HDCC Series cards are compatible with a Ross openGear(R) frame, as well as Wohler’s own MC-1RU single-rack-unit enclosure with redundant power supplies and housing for up to two cards. The HDCC-708xWST-OG2 and HDCC-WSTx708-OG2 will be featured in the Wohler stand, 10.B10, at IBC2013. Further information about Wohler’s HDCC ancillary data management platform is available online at www.wohler.com.

Vantastic Studios and Vaddio Create a New Filmmaking Paradigm in Hollywood

It may be the 21st century, but filmmaking still happens pretty much the way it did 50 years ago: The director shoots scenes on a set or on location, takes the raw footage back to a production studio and edits everything into a finished movie at some later date. It’s a time-consuming—if time-honored—method for making movies, television shows and even digital content found on the web.

Vantastic Studios, established in 2012, aims to change that. While they’re not making movies (yet), they are standing the filmmaking process on its head by creating a complete editing studio inside a customized luxury van. This approach enables them to create original content on the fly, without stopping the action to set up the next scene.

Ross Kolton, Vantastic’s Director of Production, calls this new type of filmmaking “disruptive media”—a riff on the term “disruptive innovation”—because this new model breaks existing boundaries and creates a new market space. Disruptive media enables performers to engage with people in unexpected ways, creating a type of performance art. For example, Vantastic Studios has produced several segments in which they capture the reactions and commentary of comedians riding around Los Angeles on people-watching expeditions. In some cases, the comedians jump out of the van to talk with passersby, frequently to hilarious effect. While this type of spontaneous production is a mainstay for Vantastic, they’re about to branch out into more sophisticated uses of the mobile film production studio.

“We’ve been experimenting with what this new approach is best suited for,” Kolton says. “Our method is the exact opposite of typical production techniques because we don’t design the concept and then figure out how to film it. Instead, we’re designing our content around the look you can get from the van’s cameras.”

FILMMAKING ON FOUR WHEELS
In traditional filmmaking, the director sets up scenes or shots and then positions the cameras to capture the best angles. Usually, each scene requires multiple takes, with breaks in between to reposition the cameras. The challenge with this approach is that it limits spontaneity, a core element for many performers, like comedians, or for action-oriented scenes. Vantastic Studios solves this problem by continuously filming the action while switching camera angles, adjusting sound levels, and editing footage directly from the studio contained in the van.

And what a van it is. The luxury GMC Savana van seats six people, enabling Vantastic to transport their talent—actors, musicians, comedians, models—to a location for filming. As a fully-equipped mobile production studio, the back of the van contains all the tech components Kolton needs to run the show. Starring in this technology lineup is a Vaddio ProductionVIEW Precision Camera Controller.

“The whole idea was to create a mobile studio that can be operated by one person, and the Vaddio controller makes that possible,” said Kolton. “The way the controller’s set up just makes sense. I can simply twist to zoom. I can pre-set up to 14 angles per camera with the controller, and after that I’m just hitting buttons to edit as we roll.”

That “hitting buttons” part is crucial to successful on-the-fly editing. As the action unfolds, Kolton can see each camera’s view on three large monitors in front of him. To quickly cut from one camera to another, he simply pushes the corresponding button on the Vaddio controller. Kolton can pan, tilt or zoom any of the van’s cameras using the controller’s broadcast-quality joystick to capture precisely the shot he wants.

Besides its ease of use, Kolton appreciates the controller’s ability to integrate with non-Vaddio equipment. “It was easy to update the Vaddio firmware to work with our Sony cameras,” he said. In addition to the Vaddio ProductionVIEW controller, the van’s audiovisual equipment includes four external Sony high-definition pan/tilt/zoom cameras mounted on each corner of the van’s roof, along with another camera attached to a telescoping mast for wide-angle shots. Quick-release mounts on the exterior cameras allow them to be set up for location shots within five minutes. Inside the van, brackets along the ceiling hold lights and microphones for interior shots.

SEAMLESS SHOTS SHIFT THE FILMMAKING PARADIGM
Vantastic’s mobile studio solves the problematic go-and-stop nature of traditional filmmaking. Under the old paradigm, comedians might be filmed riffing inside the van, then the director would yell “Cut!” and everyone would wait for several minutes while camera operators set up outside to continue filming. Later, when the sequence was edited together, it would look seamless to the viewer. But it wouldn’t have felt that way to the performer who lost his or her rhythm while waiting 15 minutes or more for filming to resume.

“This ability to continuously film is especially important for comedians, who can be captured improvising inside the van on the way to a show, chatting with fans waiting outside the venue and then entering the building to perform their act,” said Kolton. “They don’t have to stop and wait for exterior shots to be set up, which can affect their comedic timing.”

The Vantastic Studios approach allows performers to go on performing without interruption. As the action shifts from the van’s interior to the street, Kolton simply uses the Vaddio controller to switch shots from the handheld camera to one of the exterior cameras. With no cuts in the action, the performer can keep rolling—and so do the cameras.

“We often position a handheld camera operator in the passenger seat to film the talent inside the van, and then we use the external cameras to seamlessly follow the talent as they exit the van,” said Kolton. As they follow the performer, Kolton’s team captures footage that imparts a sense of immediacy yet boasts the polish of a broadcast quality production.

“We produced a segment where we took Cheryl Burke of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ and E! Entertainment host [Jason] Kennedy on a tour of Cheryl’s early hangouts in Hollywood,” Kolton said. More recently, Vantastic Studios produced an episode of “Punch Drunk Sports,” featuring comedians Ari Shaffir, Sam Tripoli and Jayson Thibault.
As Vantastic explores where their new approach to video and filmmaking will go, they can see possibilities in several areas where traditional videography doesn’t work well. Skateboard videos and other action sports would greatly benefit from Vantastic’s continuous filming approach. Live concerts, including footage of the band arriving and leaving, are another possibility.

“Eventually, we’ll do live streaming from the van,” Kolton said, which will take the seamless production method to new levels.

Vantastic’s original content can be seen in many places, from network television to the web. You’ll currently find Vantastic Studios productions on their YouTube channel (Vantastic Studios Network) and, soon, on their website. Meanwhile, Kolton and his crew will continue their endeavor to replace the old-fashioned “cutting room” with a custom van, using a little help from a Vaddio ProductionVIEW controller.

NUGEN Audio Announces MXF Option for LMB Processor

Powerful Offline Loudness Analysis and Correction Tool Now Supports Native MXF Audio File-Handling for Increased Time Savings and Efficiency

LEEDS, U.K. — Sept. 13, 2013 — NUGEN Audio, creator of intuitive tools for audio professionals, today announced the availability of a new MXF file-handling option for the company’s powerful Loudness Management Batch (LMB) processor. LMB is an offline loudness analysis and correction tool for OS X(R) and Windows(R) environments that delivers network-based, automated loudness-processing for large numbers of audio and video files without requiring user intervention. The new option introduces native MXF audio-handling that enables LMB to perform automated analysis and correction of audio in an MXF container while preserving all other data within the file.

“Our customers are audio professionals with very high standards for quality, who also have a need to work as efficiently as possible and deliver loudness-compliant audio. With LMB, we have addressed these requirements with a very efficient and cost-effective solution for automated loudness correction in a wide range of applications,” said Jon Schorah, NUGEN Audio creative director. “LMB’s correction and loudness criteria make it a reliable guarantor of compliance and a great complement to real-time mixing tools such as VisLM. Now, with a file-handling option for native MXF files, we’ve taken the system to a new level of time-saving and efficiency.”

A highly versatile tool for post-production, film, and broadcast, LMB is typically used as part of a content-management workflow, as a stage of QC to check compliance of incoming content from third parties, or as a routine way of double-checking content when editors are using other loudness tools in the studio. Based on NUGEN Audio’s loudness monitoring and correction engine, LMB performs faster-than-real-time processing on batches of files, saving time and preventing human error. For streamlined processing of video, LMB automatically examines video files to analyze audio content without changing the original files. LMB’s drag-and-drop interface and Watched Folders automate the process of checking and conforming files to multiple broadcast criteria, and optional command-line operation allows for full integration into existing asset management systems and procedures.

With the new MXF option, LMB can now analyze and correct OP-Atom and OP-1a operating patterns containing PCM and D10-encoded PCM audio data without first converting the MXF files to WAV format. With the ability to correct and deliver loudness-compliant audio in the original MXF format, the solution saves time and effort.

LMB is fully compliant with CALM, ITU-R BS. 1770, EBU R128, ATSC A/85, and other global loudness regulations and standards, offering audio professionals a complete solution for loudness and true-peak compliance. LMB checks and corrects for integrated program loudness, short-term loudness, and loudness range (LRA) targeting, making the system highly effective for optimizing material with a wide loudness range, such as movie soundtracks, some sports, and live music. LMB also provides a built-in back-stop limiter for managing true-peak levels.

The base version of LMB is now available for $999, and the advanced file-handling option for MXF is priced at $1,200. More information about LMB and other NUGEN Audio products is available at www.nugenaudio.com.

Uniting the Audience: The Martin Audio Experience

Martin Audio Installation/MLA Ad

For many years Martin Audio has flourished under the memorable tagline, ‘The Martin Experience’. But actually defining what that is, and what it means to the industry, has been less clear. After reviewing at length Martin Audio’s increased profile in the industry today—and its ambition for the future—the company is about to unveil precisely what that ‘experience’ is all about.

James King, Marketing Director, explains. “After a lot of soul searching to define what lies at the heart of the brand, what quickly emerged was the importance of the audience experience. It’s what the company has been doing for over 40 years, from enabling ‘supergroups’ of the ‘70s to be able to play to larger audiences and be heard properly for the first time, through to MLA and its superlative consistency of coverage.

“The audience is central to the industry’s success, so creating exciting sound that envelops all of them and delivering truly memorable shared moments ensures better quality tours and more sell-out venues, be they bars and clubs, houses of worship, theaters or auditoriums. That’s the essence of the Martin Audio experience, and we summarize it as uniting the audience.”

Jason Baird, R&D Director adds, “The goal of delivering the Martin Audio experience to each audience member, led us to develop our patented Multi-cellular technology. First implemented in MLA, this has become renowned for its out-of-the-box coverage consistency, while still preserving all of the dynamics and projection of our signature horn-loaded approach. The future promises the development of this philosophy and technology into more and more of our market segments.”

Simon Bull, Director of Sales, went on to say, “Our customers have been asking for Martin Audio to communicate its values and create greater awareness and consideration for our touring and installation solutions. Uniting the audience does just that.”

To help illustrate and communicate the thinking, a series of print ads and brand video are being deployed, alongside a refreshed website www.martin-audio.com, featuring new case study materials.

Anthony Taylor, Managing Director, had the final word, “We’ve been looking at ways of communicating, really for the first time, exactly what makes Martin Audio tick, and to build on our recent growth and technology success in the marketplace. With ‘uniting the audience’ underpinning our philosophy and all that we do, I’m confident that our customers, FOH engineers, rental companies, production managers, system integrators and installers will also be able to take a fresh look at Martin Audio and understand how our experience provides them with better solutions for their different needs.”

Wohler RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform Vaults to New Performance Heights

AMSTERDAM — Sept. 14, 2013 — Wohler Technologies today announced a dramatic jump in the performance of the company’s RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform(TM). The platform, already capable of rapid file-based media processing, is now achieving new levels of performance, without sacrificing quality, with the version 8.1 software released this month. Through Wohler’s redesign of the critical processing steps of content ingestion and indexing, as well as transcoding, the RadiantGrid platform has increased its end-to-end throughput capabilities by an average factor of 200 percent.

“By employing CPU strategies and a unique software architecture rather than proprietary, and often costly, hardware designs, the RadiantGrid platform has achieved industry-first characteristics that bring significant benefits to our customers’ media-processing workflows,” said Craig Newbury, vice president sales, RadiantGrid at Wohler. “The results of automated media ingestion, analysis, and intelligence-gathering are united with extreme processing parallelization to bring transcoding, standards conversion, loudness management, and color legalization under a fully managed and consolidated file-based workflow at speeds that are unmatched.”

The RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform is unique in the way it binds multiple media processes into a single workflow, starting with intelligent media information-gathering at ingestion. With this approach, the user need only specify the desired output profile, rather than defining the parameters of the input — irrespective of what that input may be.

Given the radical boost in processing speeds realized with version 8.1 of RadiantGrid, users will experience a faster, more efficient total end-to-end process, including improved ingestion, indexing, and transcode times. The combination of the platform’s flexible conversion modes, such as the concurrent read/render mode enabled by RadiantGrid’s exclusive TrueGrid, with the software’s inherent versatility gives media companies the freedom to adapt the platform for further performance optimizations targeting specific environments or applications.

Wohler will showcase version 8.1 of the RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform at IBC2013, stand 10.B10. Further information about the RadiantGrid business line and other Wohler solutions is available at www.wohler.com.
