Digital Nirvana System Ensures Confident 24/7 Monitoring of Live Feeds at Discovery Communications

Fremont, CA – Digital Nirvana, a provider of monitoring, compliance and content repurposing systems for broadcast, cable, and satellite networks, has announced that Discovery Communications selected its Monitor IQ™ broadcast monitoring system. The system will be used to provide 24/7 confidence monitoring for 45 live channels for Discovery North America’s broadcast operations.

“ASI functionality means less hardware for across the North America services and provides greater data metrics with regards to DPI and CALM logging,” said Tim Mazzacua, Director, TOC Operations, Discovery Communications, Inc. “By reducing the total equipment footprint, we can free up valuable rack space. Additionally, the Digital Nirvana system gives us a much better idea of what our customers are actually seeing.”

Arco Groenenberg, director of sales and marketing for Broadcast Products, Digital Nirvana, said Monitor IQ provides unique benefits to large, subscriber-based networks: “Networks run the risk of losing subscribers if there are frequent signal losses. Often the provider doesn’t know there’s a signal loss until a customer reports the problem. Monitor IQ lets operators keep track of their channel feeds and react to any signal loss or impairment before customers call.

“We look forward to a continued successful relationship with Discovery,” he continued, “and ensuring the network’s programming is delivered to its customers at the highest possible quality 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”

Zylight Brings Upgraded F8 LED Fresnel to NAB 2014

LOS ANGELES – Zylight, a leading manufacturer of innovative LED lighting solutions, showcased an improved F8 LED Fresnel at the 2014 NAB Show. Introduced last year, the reengineered lighting instrument still delivers close to the light output of a traditional 1000-watt Fresnel and collapses to less than four inches thick for easy transport, but a number of refinements deliver improved performance for field and studio applications.

The yoke mount has been angled for greater positioning range and able to accommodate 90-degree stand mounting. Plus, all locking and adjustment is done with a single knob. On the light, the self-locking focus now automatically holds focus position. Other improvements include improved bellow design for smoother operation, a self-terminating DMX input, better protection from the elements and a new heat sink orientation that allows 20 percent better cooling.

“We have been blown away by the response to the F8. Broadcast studios, ENG news crews, commercial producers, independent filmmakers – our LED Fresnel has been embraced by video professionals across the industry,” said Joe Arnao, president of Zylight. “We went back to the drawing board to make the F8 even better, without changing the features that make it the most exciting lighting instrument on the market.”

Available in daylight (5600K) or tungsten (3200K) versions, the F8 lighting instrument draws only 100 watts. It has a high CRI (color rendering index) and its eight-inch SCHOTT glass lens maintains single shadow traditional Fresnel beam shaping. The fully dimmable F8 offers an adjustable beam spread (16-70 degrees), with a patented focusing system for spot and flood operations.

Bright like an HMI, the F8 is a better choice for run-and-gun ENG applications – it can be powered by a standard 14.4V camera battery or AC adapter, and it is water resistant (IP54) for use in challenging location conditions. Its LED engine features quantum dot technology to provide a more refined and balanced natural light output, which has been tuned to work with today’s digital camera systems. Like other Zylight models, the F8 features ZyLink wireless technology, which makes it easy to link multiple Zylights for simultaneous remote control. The F8 ships with barn doors and yoke mount, but additional accessories are available separately.

ABOUT ZYLIGHT LLC

Founded in 2003, Zylight LLC is the leading manufacturer of intelligent LED lighting instruments for the film and video production industry. Every model in its easy-to-use lighting system produces fully calibrated bright white light, while some also provide a spectrum of adjustable colors without gels.

New FOR-A HVS-390HS Switcher User TNDV Relied on Unit for Production of Events Surrounding ACM Awards

Cypress, CA – Video production company Tennessee Digital Video (TNDV) first used FOR-A’s HVS-390HS video switcher while producing conferences for Atlanta-based Passion City Church. Impressed with the cost efficient switcher, TNDV purchased a 2 M/E HVS-390HS of its own in December 2013. The company relied on its new switcher for events leading up to the Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards on April 6, including production of a 2-day music festival fundraiser and a red carpet show special.

On April 4-5, ACM hosted a two-day outdoor music fundraiser festival at Caesars LINQ in Las Vegas. Deemed “Party for a Cause,” the festival’s proceeds helped to fight hunger by benefitting Outnumber Hunger, and featured headliners Rascal Flatts and Keith Urban. TNDV handled video production of the festival, using the HVS-390HS to produce IMAG on three video boards, enabling the crowd to see performers up close. TNDV fed video to two different stages during the festival’s events. The production company was also on location in Las Vegas to produce a live red carpet special at the ACM Awards.

“We have a number of HD trucks and flypacks, so we own a variety of switchers,” said Nic Dugger, owner of TNDV. “The HVS-390HS stands out compared to others for the variety of useful features that it offers for such an affordable price. A lot of our productions require a second M/E for broadcast and IMAG switches, so that was a major consideration in us choosing the 2 M/E HVS-390HS. The switcher was a perfect fit for our work surrounding the ACM Awards.”

A longtime user of FOR-A color correction and video conversion products, the HVS-390HS is the first FOR-A switcher that TNDV has purchased. The company has found the unit to be well built, robust, and road worthy – all important considerations that the mobile production company looks for when selecting equipment.

“FOR-A’s HVS-390HS offers features that allow us to highly customize the unit to meet our production needs,” said Dugger. “Its expansion slots, twelve DVE channels, and option to use the larger 28-button panel greatly benefit our operations.”

NAB 2014: Digital Nirvana Introduces FIFOPro Ingest Back-Up System for Broadcast Production

Creates edit-ready backups of all live ingested media, eliminating the need for manual recording, cataloging, storing and transcoding of back-up tapes

Fremont, CA – Digital Nirvana will give the broadcast industry its first look at the company’s new FIFOPro ingest back-up system at the NAB 2014 convention, to be held from April 5-10th at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Digital Nirvana will showcase this powerful new production tool in Booth #SU11017.

The FIFOPro system was engineered to streamline workflows for news departments and live production applications. Traditionally for SAN back up, broadcasters have relied on recording onto multiple tape decks, one for each feed, with station personnel completing the cumbersome tasks of loading, labeling, cataloging and storing each tape for back-up insurance. In this mode of operation, if the need arises to restore from tape, it must be manually de-archived, taken to the editing bay, loaded and then transcoded into the proper format prior to editing.

With the FIFOPro ingest back-up system, the workflow is automated. FIFOPro continually records and archives multiple HD-SDI feeds on a rolling First-in/First-out (FIFO) basis, retaining all content for 72 hours before deleting it from the system. This data is automatically recorded in an edit-ready AVCi 50 format along with its metadata, including channel, date and time. If original content is lost or damaged, it’s a simple process to find and access the stored media via web browser and export the selected clips to the watch folder for immediate editing.

By eliminating the need for multiple tape decks, transcoding and time-consuming metadata management, the FIFOPro ingest back-up system is the perfect solution to streamline workflows, save time, space and money.

Flint’s switcher also includes three keyers for layering, each with PiP and customizable DVE. An internal Inscriber CG provides six graphic channels, while a built-in, two-channel clip server stores up to 30 hours of clips and animations in a variety of file formats, including ProRes, H.264, DNxHD and QuickTime animations. Flint’s audio mixer is controlled through an intuitive audio interface with on-screen stereo faders and VU meters, and two outputs allow separate mixes with independent control for master recording and Web presentations.

With up to seven simultaneous output formats, Flint offers built-in HD streaming in a variety of formats and allows live recording on its internal hard drive. Other features include a customizable multi-view, customizable virtual sets, and control of robotic cameras, video servers, external audio mixers, and other devices.
