Broadcast Pix Granite Integrated Production System Anchors Creative Video of Washington HD Mobile Productions

Billerica, Massachusetts – From the Kennedy Center to the National Mall, Creative Video of Washington, Inc., a full-service video production company based in McLean, Va., produces a variety of live events across the Washington, DC region. Although the company maintains a very healthy SD production business – a lot of association meetings are driven by PowerPoint presentations that still use the 4:3 aspect ratio – the company made the move to native HD production with its latest mobile package, which is anchored by a Broadcast Pix™ Granite™ 1000 integrated production system.

According to Kirby Whyte, CVW president, the Granite system has been in “almost constant use” since its launch in October 2012. “Frankly, it has become the heart of our HD switcher package,” he added. In addition to meetings, Creative Video regularly provides live video production for trade shows, awards ceremonies, and indoor and outdoor concerts. The company also offers pre-production and post-production services.

Creative Video had been using a Broadcast Pix Slate™ integrated production system since 2006. “The Slate became a real SD workhorse for us,” said Whyte. “When we decided to upgrade the production switcher to Granite, we built a complete mobile production package and then realized how powerful the Granite was. It was the best decision we ever made.”

The Granite is housed in a six-foot rack, along with two 17-inch monitors, intercom equipment, and CCUs for the package’s Sony HXC-100 cameras. “The advantage to the Granite Server is that you can build it into your engineering rack and do all the wiring permanently,” said Matthew Eidemiller, CVW vice president of production. The patch panel on the back of the Granite makes it easy to connect cameras and other inputs during setup.

On location, an engineer is stationed in front of the equipment rack to handle camera shading. The Granite’s control panel is positioned nearby on a work table, along with two 42-inch monitors and a laptop loaded with Granite’s optional Chyron Lyric PRO 8 graphic creation software. The company opted to install the software on a separate computer so the remote package would not need to be accessed to create graphics during pre-production.

For most live event projects, Creative Video relies on a TD, engineer, and perhaps a content manager (formerly known as a tape operator) who handles clips and CG. The Granite provides the flexibility to adjust to each client’s specific crew requirements. “In our business, it’s all budget driven,” Eidemiller explained. “No two jobs are the same. Having a system that you can customize for each individual job makes our lives a lot easier.”

Creative Video relies several of Granite’s built-in workflow tools, including Fluent-View, the customizable multi-view. Eidemiller changes the screen layout based on the type of live program being produced, and will often customize each 42-inch monitor separately to suit the unique viewing needs of the TD and content manager. “Those that have used it on their shows are blown away with how we can set up the screens for both the director and the TD,” Whyte added.

“I’ve always been a big Broadcast Pix proponent,” Eidemiller said. “We beat the system up more than most people. Things get bounced around from moving the system in and out of the truck. I love their customer support. They’re great at talking us through a solution or getting us what we need.”

Spectrum Productions Uses New Broadcast Pix Granite X Integrated Production System for SEC Football Events

Billerica, Massachusetts – Broadcast Pix™ today announced Spectrum Productions, an AV production and rental services company, used its new Granite™ X integrated production system to produce video presentations for the Regions Bank SEC Coaches Luncheon and SEC Legends Dinner on Dec. 6 in Atlanta. The event staging included two 11×20-foot side video screens for video playback and image magnification (I-MAG), as well as an ultra-wide 52×16-foot,two-projector blend center display positioned behind the stage, all populated exclusively through the Broadcast Pix system.

The luncheon included a preview of the next day’s SEC Championship Game between the Auburn Tigers and Missouri Tigers, including insights from the head coaches of both programs, while the dinner honored 14 former players that were named the SEC 2013 Football Legends Class in September. Both events were held in the same hotel ballroom and featured a three-camera setup. According to Preston MacIntyre, president, Spectrum Productions, all video clips and graphics were accessed from the Granite’s built-in clip server.

Fluent Macros, Granite’s built-in file-based macros system, was used extensively for both programs. Spectrum created a series of complex transitions, which involved layers of motion loops, picture-in-picture compositions, keys, and more. “It really would be impossible to execute so many simultaneous cues without the Broadcast Pix Fluent Macros. That’s a lot of different commands for people to be running manually,” MacIntyre explained. “We wanted the consistency and repeatability of the macros. No matter how many steps, we knew everything was going to be perfect.”

To create content for the main (and unusually sized) screen, graphic images were produced in Adobe After Effects as 3840×1080 images. A reverse anamorphic process compressed the images down to 1920×1080 resolution, which created “squished” images when played back through the Granite. The output from the Granite was fed into a Vista Systems Spyder x20 video processor, which re-created the original aspect ratio and flawlessly fed the blended image into two projectors.

Since Spectrum received its Granite X system in November, it has been used for both SEC events, the NASCAR 2013 Nationwide / Camping World Truck Series Awards Banquet in Miami Beach, Fla., and the Coalition to Salute American Heroes 2013 Road to Recovery Conference in Orlando, Fla. The company is headquartered in Atlanta, with offices in Miami, Orlando, Charlotte, N.C., and Las Vegas, Nev.

Spectrum upgraded from its Granite 5000 system to the Granite X for its advanced multi-view capabilities, which offers 16 full motion source windows and makes it easier to work with robotic cameras. MacIntyre also praised Broadcast Pix’s constant, one-frame latency, which is important for live event production. “Some competing products have quite a bit of a challenge with video delay,” he added.

Viz Trio, Vizrt’s character generator (CG), is being used extensively for live production of all real-time graphics, including lower thirds, match-ups, and score boards. Viz Virtual Studio creates augmented reality graphics on set, providing presenters with a new way of highlighting key players and match-ups.

Jim Irving, Commercial Director at deltatre, said, “We have a successful track record of integrating Vizrt products into innovative solutions for deltatre’s clients. Therefore, it’s fitting that the culmination of this relationship, Magma Pro powered by Viz Libero, will be used prominently during the biggest sporting event of 2014.”

“This solution will make anyone’s coverage of the World Cup really shine,” said Petter Ole Jakobsen, Vizrt CTO. “The mix of deltatre’s high-quality sports event data and production with our Viz Libero produces a system that gives viewers unparalleled insight into what is happening on the pitch. I can’t wait to see it live during the tournament.”

PESA JITC-Compliant Video Distribution System Supports Mission Control Center for International Space Station

Huntsville, Alabama – PESA, a leading U.S.-based custom design and manufacturing company for professional audio and video signal distribution, today announced the completion of a video routing system upgrade to NASA’s Mission Control Center (MCC) at the agency’s Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston. Lockheed Martin, a prime contractor for NASA, commissioned PESA to provide hardware and system training for its Cheetah Video Distribution System (VDS).

Mission Control supports 24/7 operations for the International Space Station (ISS) and its partners, which include NASA, the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos), Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), European Space Agency (ESA), Canadian Space Agency (CSA), and payload oversight from the Payload Operations Integration Center at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville. Operators at these remote locations frequently require the ability to individually manage the specific video resources allocated to them. With an IP-based PERC2000 system controller paired with Cattrax Web, PESA’s browser-based router control software, NASA’s technical team can securely configure input and output sources specific to user or mission requirements, limiting access to only those video sources and destinations for which the user has authorization when required.

Also key to the success of the project was PESA’s hybrid video hardware system, which supports both fiber optics and coaxial sources from a variety of broadcast and computer signal formats. Using PESA’s Vidblox extender/scaler units, every SDI, VGA, and DVI video source is fed through the router and securely distributed to the desired display or recording system.

The VDS hardware is based on a Cheetah 288XR frame that allows NASA to route 288 input sources to 432 workstations and display screens. PESA’s Cheetah routing switchers have been certified under the Department of Defense (DoD) Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC), and comply with the new JITC VDS specifications.

“We were very pleased to hear all the positive responses on how well the MCC came out both functionally and aesthetically,” said Howard Sutton, executive chairman of PESA. “We knew we had to deliver a system for the 24/7 control room that would provide instant access to real-time data and video feeds coming from satellite and ISS sources.”

“Leveraging our long time experience building mission critical routing systems, PESA is confident that our system will provide the secure and trustworthy performance that NASA demands for 24/7 operations,” added Chuck Tillett, president and COO of PESA. “We are very proud to have been selected for this important project and to have Lockheed Martin as one of our JITC-compliant VDS solution customers.”

About PESA

As a leading provider of audio/video connectivity, PESA offers a wide selection of routing switchers, matrix switchers, extenders, converters, media extenders, and signal processing gear to support government, military, industrial, commercial, broadcast and mobile truck applications.
