Broadcast Pix Part of New Video Call Center Solution for New Genre of Production Workflow

Billerica, Massachusetts – Broadcast Pix™ announced today that its integrated production switchers are being used with the new Video Call Center (VCC) automated production solution to bring the caller-based talk radio show format to television. By utilizing Broadcast Pix’s application programming interface (API) and file-based macros, the VCC system essentially creates a video-driven version of talk radio using Web-based video sources.

Inventor Tom Wolzien company received a patent for VCC on July 1. A 45-year television veteran, Wolzien serves as a consultant for large media organizations through his company, Wolzien LCC, and is the lead independent director for TiVo, Inc. Since last year, Wolzien and his team have been testing the VCC system by producing TalkCenterAmerica®, a series of call-in shows covering a variety of topics.

“VCC is right at the intersection of social and mass media, TV and the Web,” said Wolzien. “What’s unique is that the system doesn’t just handle a single IP video call, but it’s designed to handle multiple video calls simultaneously, each with the power of its own computer – essential for any live caller-based TV program.”

With VCC, the on-camera host produces the call-in show without a traditional control room. Broadcast Pix API and Fluent™ Macros allow the VCC software to provide the host with a great deal of production flexibility, such as triggering sequences of individual key/shot combinations that can be modified based on available callers. As a result, with no content costs for callers and minimal staffing requirements, VCC is a cost effective approach to producing live programming.

Using Skype and similar technologies on various devices, multiple Web video callers can connect to the show. Viewers can see the callers and whatever the callers want to show. Proprietary CAT™ Caller Acquisition Software assists screeners with incoming calls, audio metering, video cropping and conversion, and return video. Plus, a patented Text Overlay superimposes caller names and locations over the caller’s picture at the screener’s position and remains on-screen when the caller is added to the live production.

“The innovative technical team at Broadcast Pix has been supportive every step of the way as we implemented the Video Call Center,” said Wolzien. “As an inventor, I have appreciated their readiness to help us solve the challenges of integrating the complex aspects of television automation in a way that appears simple to the host who solely controls the air. And on the technical side, I have appreciated their rapid and creative support when we have run into problems.”

“Video Call Center utilizes today’s Web-based video technologies to adapt the caller-based talk radio format for TV,” said Steve Ellis, CEO of Broadcast Pix. “It’s truly an innovative way to produce high quality programming with minimal staff, and Broadcast Pix is proud to be part of the process.”

About Broadcast Pix Founded in 2002, Broadcast Pix is the leader in integrated production switchers, with customers in more than 110 countries. Available in several configurations, from compact systems with end-to-end integration to large-scale systems for high-end live productions, Broadcast Pix switchers include CG, dual clip stores, file-based macros, external control software, and customizable multi-view and virtual sets with patented control options.

DoD Extends JITC Certification to Include PESA Video Distribution System (VDS) Product Upgrades

Huntsville, Alabama – PESA, a leading designer and manufacturer of professional audio and video distribution solutions, today announced the U.S. Department of Defense has approved upgrades to its Video Distribution System (VDS), which includes several products in its Cheetah large-scale digital router product line. After initially receiving certification in January 2013, the company submitted a number of software and firmware updates for evaluation and testing.

The most significant upgrade is the new series of Vidblox 2K DVI dual link extenders, which transport video resolutions up to 2560×1600@60Hz over coax and/or fiber. “Vidblox 2K provides an inexpensive multi-path solution for distributing ultra high-resolution graphics over long distances,” explained Col. John T. Wright (U.S. Army, Retired), PESA senior vice president, sales and business development. “It’s a significant step forward in functionality, and with JITC certification, now the DoD can install an even wider range of PESA products in a variety of applications.”

PESA was the first company to achieve listing on the Department of Defense Unified Capabilities (UC) Approved Products List (APL) as a VDS, and remains the industry leader for large-scale VDS solutions. It is the only listing of such equipment approved by the DoD to be fielded in DoD networks. The APL is managed by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA).

The upgraded products received Interoperability Certification (IOC) and Information Assurance (IA) accreditation from DISA’s Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC), which is responsible for certifying joint and combined interoperability of all DoD information technology and national security systems. With an array of software and hardware-based testing procedures, JITC evaluates technologies that provide warfighters with high-tech advantages in both peacetime and war. JITC certification ensures that a technological device or system meets the full standards to operate in a UC environment.

PESA offers a complete portfolio of secure video switching and distribution solutions that deliver up to 4K resolution. With robust features that support continuity of operations, command and control and emergency preparedness and response, the Cheetah product line has proven to be a solid foundation for many government and federal agencies, such as the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, and NASA.

“JITC certification is very important because it ensures that DoD officials can rely on our products to deliver high-quality imagery for C4ISR between distinct video chains,” added Wright. “PESA is proud to continue to provide our military and other government agencies with mission-critical products for video and audio distribution.”

Latest Version of Digital Nirvana’s Powerful Broadcast Monitoring System Now Available

SmartSearch, SmartAlerts, Variable Speed Playback, and Intuitive GUI Set it Apart from Other Monitoring Systems

Fremont, CA – Digital Nirvana announces shipment of Monitor IQ 4.0, the latest version of its broadcast monitoring software. Monitor IQ is an in-house logging and compliance monitoring solution for traditional broadcasting media. Version 4.0 made its debut at the NAB convention this past April in Las Vegas. It is available for download and will ship on new units as of July 15, 2014.

New features within Version 4.0 include: SmartSearch, SmartAlerts, transport stream recording, variable speed speed playback, enhanced editing, and an improved, easy-to-use user interface.

“With these new features, we’ve solidified Monitor IQ’s position as the smartest monitoring solution in the industry with the most rapid return on investment,” said Arco Groenenberg, director of sales and marketing for Broadcast Products, Digital Nirvana. “Based on our close customer relationships, we’ll keep pushing the envelope and bring more broadcast-centric functionality to Monitor IQ.”

The new SmartSearch feature is a highlight of Version 4.0 and sets Monitor IQ apart from other broadcast monitoring systems. With SmartSearch users can search by date, time, and channel as well as by key words in the close caption, alert reports, as-run and traffic logs. Expression searches enable simultaneous keyword searches in the As Run log and closed captioning sections. Monitor IQ’s Boolean search capability makes it easier to define the search by adding AND, OR, + within search terms. This allows the user to search for captions that contain two words, i.e. Clinton AND Obama. The results are contained within a summary list with a hyperlink to the video content.

SmartAlerts, also new to Version 4.0, can be customized based upon the channel, time of day, duration, and choice of error such as a missing closed caption, loss of video or audio, loudness, etc. Users can set up custom profiles with specific preferences that, depending upon the application, are searchable by time, date and alarm profile.

The new variable speed playback option allows for playback at speeds such as 2x, 4x, 1/2x, and -2x, for example. It enables faster operations during legal reviews, ad verification, content review and repurposing applications.

Enhanced editing provides the user the ability to produce frame-accurate cut clip edits. Users can produce cut-clips on live or previous recordings, which allows for quick turn around when repurposing and editing content.

Monitor IQ combines signal-monitoring, loudness monitoring, aircheck-logging, ad verification, competitive analysis and content repurposing and runs on Digital Nirvana’s Open Media Appliance – a highly scalable, industrial-grade server.

HD Upgrades for Melrose Community Access Include Broadcast Pix Granite 5000 System

Billerica, Massachusetts – Over the past decade, Melrose Massachusetts Television, Inc. (MMTV), the community access station for the City of Melrose, Mass., has been aggressively upgrading its production equipment. In January, the station made the move to a native HD production workflow with new cameras and an upgraded control room built around a Broadcast Pix™ Granite™ 5000 integrated production switcher.

MMTV produces a variety of original programs, including After Hours, a talk show that is shared with other regional stations, and Sound Stage, which showcases local musicians. The station also covers parades and other local events, and supports the local city government and educational channels. Original programs are available in HD on YouTube and presented locally in letterbox SD on Comcast and Verizon FiOS.

In 2010, the nonprofit community organization upgraded to an SDI workflow and a Broadcast Pix™ Slate™ 5000 integrated production switcher. While the station researched other switcher options for the HD upgrade, it chose to stick with the reliability and flexibility of Broadcast Pix. “We wanted to keep the same abilities that we had with the Slate,” said Chris DeThomas, MMTV engineer. “It is wonderful. The hardware is a professional surface and the PixPad is great.”

Access A/V of Concord, N.H., handled the integration for the HD upgrade project. The Granite 5000 was installed in January, along with an upgraded monitor wall, Behringer audio mixer, Blackmagic HyperDeck Studio disk recorder, Clear-Com digital intercom system, Lectrosonics wireless IFB and JVC ProHD cameras. The Slate 5000 was then deployed to a local middle school for student productions.

DeThomas is very pleased with the HD upgrade. “It is everything that we have always wanted in our control room,” he said. “We have a completely professional space.”

Primarily driven by volunteers, MMTV programming is produced by people with varying degrees of production experience. MMTV uses Granite’s built-in Fluent-View customizable multi-view to accommodate both volunteers who prefer a more simplified setup and production veterans who want more information on screen.

“We customize it for different users,” DeThomas explained. “We have average folks producing for the first time, plus pros who bring that professional touch to the station. Everyone feels comfortable coming in – it makes the room not as intimidating.”

MMTV has also customized its Granite to manage productions in both of its studios. The four-camera Studio A is the default, but the control panel can quickly change to a new layout for three-camera Studio B productions. “We’re able to control two studios with one switcher and do it well,” DeThomas said. “That’s a great feature.”

Setla Film Productions Improves Location Shoots with Zylight F8

LOS ANGELES – A trained paramedic, Thaddeus Setla stumbled into a career in video production about 13 years ago, when he started producing short training videos with a consumer camcorder. These days, his San Francisco-based company, Setla Film Productions, is focused on high-end productions for the Web.

“I saw a need,” he recalled. “I realized I could impact more lives through video production than one patient at a time in the back of an ambulance. As technology and editing software improved, it allowed me to create more professional products.”

Setla travels the world visiting healthcare providers to produce Code STEMI, an online documentary series on http://CodeSTEMI.tv. “That’s where our audience is,” he explained. “They don’t have the money to travel and visit other EMS systems, so it is my goal to share that knowledge and experience with our audience.”

With his industry knowledge, Setla can ask pertinent questions to help EMS professionals share stories and procedures in an effort to improve patient care. It is his dream job, but Setla does face challenges on location, particularly with equipment. He shoots with two Sony F5 CineAlta 4K cameras, but has limited crew (when he’s not working as a one-man-band) and does not have the manpower to transport excessive gear and accessories.

Late last year, he completed shoots in Raleigh, N.C., and Phoenix using his new Zylight F8 LED Fresnels. The lightweight F8 means he can leave heavier C-stands at the office, and the light collapses to less than four inches thick for easy airline transport. “The whole goal is to have compact, dependable equipment,” Setla said.

While less bulk in the travel kit is a plus, performance and flexibility are Setla’s most important factors in the field. With little or no location scouting, Setla has to be prepared to light a huge firehouse or a small office. Interview setups on location tend to be quick, about 10 minutes or so, and very little of that time is devoted to setup for the F8. He says the light has worked better for him than 1×1 LED lights he’s used in the past, and appreciates the F8’s integrated battery connection and AC power options.

The 5600K lights have been particularly effective while shooting scenes in the ER, where the installed fluorescent lighting adds a green tint to skin tones. Setla is able to bounce light from the F8 and get “beautiful” skin tones. He has been using his F8s since October, and the results from his recent shoots prompted him to purchase Zylight’s IS3c, a large panel cyclorama and beauty light that can serve as a background color wash light or as a wide soft light.

“The output of the F8 is invaluable,” he added. “It handles better than anything else I’ve ever had. My Zylights are now an essential part of my production kit.”

Available in daylight (5600K) or tungsten (3200K), the F8 has a high CRI (color rendering index) and maintains single shadow traditional Fresnel beam shaping through an eight-inch SCHOTT glass lens. The fully dimmable F8 offers an adjustable beam spread (16-70 degrees), with a patented focusing system for spot and flood operations. Its LED engine with quantum dot technology draws only 100 watts, but has close to the light output of a traditional 1000-watt Fresnel.

Sun Valley Community Church Relies on FOR-A Video Switchers

Cypress, CA – When Arizona-based Sun Valley Community Church made the jump from SD to HD production in its Gilbert campus three years ago, the house of worship began using FOR-A’s HVS-300HS video switcher. Last fall, the church was faced with the decision of purchasing a new switcher for its nearby location in Tempe. Pleased with the ease of use and performance delivered by its FOR-A switcher, Sun Valley chose another FOR-A switcher to get the job done – the HVS-XT100. The house of worship has been successfully using its HVS-XT100 portable video switcher since September 2013.

“Because we’ve been very happy with our HVS-300HS switcher, it was a simple choice to stay within the FOR-A family for our next switcher purchase,” said Greg Gardner, Sun Valley’s Video Technical Director. “We decided on the HVS-XT100 because of the new features that it offers, such as having the flexibility to assign one of the keys to any of the AUX channels, and the ability to reposition and resize the key as desired.”

The HVS-XT series is the newest addition to FOR-A’s switcher line. Building on the diverse functions and features of the popular HVS-300HS, the HVS-XT switchers include mixed HD/SD input, frame synchronizing, re-sizing engine, 2.5D wipe effects, DVE, Chroma keyer, DSK, and clip memory to support playback of video and the enhancement of productions through the use of CG wipes.

Both Sun Valley’s Gilbert and Tempe campuses have full video production suites, with each of its FOR-A switchers running three live cameras, and multiple computers driving content to three projectors in the front of the auditorium, which are used for image magnification and visual content. Since the HVS-300HS and HVS-XT100 are laid out almost identically, the church’s volunteers can help with video production at either campus without any confusion as to where buttons are located.

Sun Valley uses its new HVS-XT100 during services every weekend at its 1,300-seat location in Tempe. The church has been taking advantage of the ability to log in to the switcher via a Web browser on a laptop, smart phone, or iPad to control all aspects of the unit remotely.

“FOR-A’s switchers provide great ease of use,” explained Gardner. “The bottom line for me is that the reliability of the products and customer support from FOR-A has been phenomenal.”

ABS to Address 4K Technology Questions During Free Open House

SEATAC, WA — Professional video and audio systems integration firm Advanced Broadcast Solutions (ABS) today announced a free 4K Open House at its offices in SeaTac on July 17, 2014, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be a number of vendors at the event, including Adobe, AJA Video Systems, Elemental Technologies, Four Winds Interactive, FUJINON, Infortrend, Quantum, Planar and Sony. Lunch will be provided for registered attendees.

4K and other large raster acquisition formats offer improved resolution and high dynamic range (HDR) that rival film, enough to already convince many episodic television producers to replace 35mm film with video. Plus, 4K or ultra-high definition (UHD) displays are also being considered for a variety of applications, including I-MAG (image magnification), live events and high-end retail. However, a number of questions remain regarding production, post-production and distribution workflows.

“There are many advantages to producing in 4K, but there are disadvantages as well,” explained Mark Siegel, president of ABS. “Just because you can produce in 4K, should you? There are a lot of questions with 4K, and our open house will offer an open and frank opportunity to discuss the technology and its workflows.”
