BHV Broadcast’s Award-Winning IBC Line Up Includes Battery Replacement System, Wireless On-Air Indicator, Format Convertors & Miniature Switcher

VISIT BHV BROADCAST AT IBC

Owslebury, UK – BHV Broadcast, manufacturer of compact, cost-effective equipment for live and post-production, will return to IBC 2012 with a complement of products that have been acknowledged with awards for innovation. The Company will show an upgraded model of its Video Ghost phantom power system, an enhanced version of the TallyHo! wireless on-air indicator for vision switchers, the 3-input Callisto Micro miniature SDI switcher, the Proteus rate converter, and Syntax up converter.

Video Ghost
Spirits soar with BHV Broadcast’s Video Ghost! Developed as a low-cost, reliable alternative to traditional batteries, Video Ghost brings phantom power to the digital video world! The unit – recipient of TV Technology’s Mario Award AND Broadcast Engineering’s Pick Hit – now provides a hefty 65 watts of power at 12V for camera head-ends and remote monitors using the existing serial digital video coaxial cable. Equally at home with SD or HD signals, it can also be used to power composite to SDI converters at the camera, avoiding significant signal degradation suffered by composite video over distances.

New for IBC – Video Ghost is now available for camera attachment using the V-lock universal mounting system.

Syntax Up/Cross/Down-Converter – New Price Point!
Syntax will be at the show sporting the same broadcast quality specifications in Syntax Essence, a low-cost model. The economical version of the TV Technology STAR award-winner is BHV’s SDI up/cross/down-converter based on advanced Super-Resolution Bandlet Technology. The new model provides the same performance advantages of motion-compensated processing as its predecessor without the associated disadvantages of high cost and occasionally severe artefacts.

TallyHo! Wireless tally indication system
BHV Broadcast will also demonstrate an enhanced version of TallyHo!, a wireless tally indicator system that offers camera operators reliable remote on-air indication in the field. This unique design is comprised of a base station with direct interface to the local vision mixer and a set of camera hot-shoe mounted receiver modules. TallyHo! – recipient of IBC’s “What caught my eye” – gives the camera operator and, crucially, the camera subject, a highly visible indication of on-air status. TallyHo! operates seamlessly with any vision mixer (such as Sony Anycast) that has tally GPI outputs, but its operational potential is realised to the full when used with any of BHV Broadcast’s Callisto vision mixers.

“TallyHo! provides a viable method of transmitting real-time tally information,” explains Julian Hiorns, managing director of BHV Broadcast. “It stands alone in its ability to furnish wireless feedback to cameras; essential information that every operator in the field needs, but couldn’t access economically prior to TallyHo!”

Callisto Micro miniature SDI switcher
The three-input Callisto Micro SDI mixer is a broadcast specification (SMPTE-259M) 270Mbit video switcher designed to fit into the smallest spaces. Callisto can handle fully asynchronous (unlocked) SDI inputs environment and offers remote control and broadside bus switching, so can double as a miniature reclocking matrix.

Proteus Multi-Format/Multi-Purpose Converter
The award-winning Proteus multi-format, multi-purpose, motion-adaptive standards converter will be shown in both rack-mount and portable versions. The fully-featured broadcast specification converter features 10-bit SDI, analogue video and audio I/O, an advanced standards conversion algorithm, comprehensive audio facilities and ARC. Based on an advanced Motion Adaptive Standards Converter, Proteus offers full format conversion, frame synchronizing, TBC, video and audio Proc Amps, as well as bi-directional standards (rate) conversion. Proteus addresses lip-sync errors with variable audio delay (up to 10 seconds) featuring both tracking and block delay.

Cobalt Digital to Bring Multi-Channel Loudness Processing & Monitoring Over IP to The European Market at IBC 2012

Visit Cobalt at IBC Stand 10.B27

AWARD-WINNING TECHNOLOGY OFFERS MAXIMUM COMPLIANCE WITH MINIMUM MAINTENANCE

Urbana, IL, Cobalt Digital (www.CobaltDigital.com), manufacturer of award-winning 3G/HD/SD-SDI conversion gear for broadcast environments, will introduce the European market to technologies at IBC that provide an easy path to EBU R128 and CALM compliance. Notable among a complement of ground-breaking products is the multi-award-winning LMNTS™, an exciting breakthrough in comprehensive transport-based loudness processing, and SpotCheck™, an innovative transport stream compliance monitor. Cobalt will also demonstrate the new Blue Box Group™ series of throw down conversion modules, a new range of MADI cards including Embedder/De-embedder (with 192 x 192 crosspoint switch) and MADI DA, and both physical (OGCP-9000 and OGCP-9000/CC optimised for colour correction) and virtual remote control panels.

LMNTS (Loudness Management for n-Transport Streams)
Using LINEAR ACOUSTIC® Aeromax™ technology, Cobalt’s LMNTS™ (Loudness Management for n-Transport Streams) represents a quantum leap in multi-stream loudness processing by offering an economic, consistent solution that’s easy to integrate.

Winner of both TV Technology’s STAR and Broadcast Engineering’s Pick Hit awards at NAB 2012, LMNTS performs automatic loudness processing across many transport streams making it ideal for MVPDs and MSOs where a large number of diverse programming sources must be simultaneously controlled. It operates at the MPEG IP transport layer to provide a practical loudness management solution without the need or complexity of external codecs transferring between baseband and MPEG external interfaces.

Available in both IP and ASI versions, LMNTS extracts and decodes audio codec packets from the program stream, performs high-quality PCM loudness processing, and then re-encodes and re-packets the audio within its stream. Physically, all data connections to LMNTS are via GigE IP or ASI interfaces using an industry-standard IT hardware platform with no intermediary breakouts.

SpotCheck – Audio Loudness Measurement and Recorded Data Logging System
Cobalt’s SpotCheck™ takes the guesswork out of loudness measurement and logging, and facilitates CALM and EBU R128 compliance. SpotCheck monitors an IP, ASI, or a transmitted over-the-air MPEG stream at the transmit (emission) encode point, and provides easy-to-use, convenient, long-term access to loudness records for all programming initiated from a broadcasting facility.

Segments can be searched via the intuitive display of loudness plots along with date/time-stamped thumbnails of the actual corresponding programming, or can optionally be queried and correlated using a database relationship with the facility as-run automation list. SpotCheck readily pinpoints all segments that are outside of CALM/R128 compliance, providing documentary proof should an erroneous complaint appear. Ethernet control enables integration with facility IT providing long-term logging/thumbnail storage.

Requiring no breakout from the MPEG stream and not affecting the emission stream in any way, SpotCheck provides an easily integrated, facility-based, powerful solution for loudness records and compliance interrogation and verification.

Blue Box Group – Interface Converter boxes
Cobalt is returning to its roots by presenting a modular, low-cost, signal conversion line offering excellent performance, ease-of-operation, and practical installation. The series – named Blue Box Group™ – receives its power directly form video monitors or other equipment via USB without bulky “wall wart” adapters.

MADI cards – Ideal for Outside Broadcast environment
Ideal for the OB market, Cobalt’s new series of MADI embedder/de-embedder processing cards opens up new possibilities in multi-channel/multi-source baseband audio routing (192 x 192 crosspoint switch). The 9374-EMDE Quad Stream SDI – AES – MADI series, perfect for mobile environments, provides a full unrestricted audio crosspoint that allows channel routing between any channels on up to four SDI steams, discrete AES-3id, and AES10 MADI interfaces. It uses standard 1694A cabling thus eliminating the need for fiber. Its excellent MADI receiver performance allows up to 250m MADI receive capability with no signal degradation.

Embed and de-embed-only versions are also available, as well as dual SDI stream 9372 and single SDI stream 9371 versions.

Physical and Virtual Remote Control Panels
Cobalt has developed unique remote control panels for control, configuration and monitoring of the 9000 COMPASS® and Fusion3G® cards. The OGCP-9000 can be used with multiple 8321 and HPF-9000 frames and cards. Operating with the Dashboard GUI the OGCP-9000 offers the intuitive control for quick, efficient operation. The OGCP-9000/CC is optimised for fast, real time adjustment for on-air colour correction.

The WINOGCP virtual control panel via PC offers convenient controls that mirror the abilities of the hard OGCP-9000 panel using computer mouse via Ethernet.

Both the OGCP-9000 and WINOGCP are ideal for monitoring and logging of loudness control to meet EBU R128 and ATSC A85 requirements.
