Legendary Fisherman Bill Dance Reels in Viewers with HD Images Shot Using FUJINON Lenses

FUJINON ZA12x4.5BERM lenses perform in harsh conditions with outstanding reliability

Wayne, N.J. – When America’s best-known professional fisherman Bill Dance demonstrates his magic touch to TV viewers, his production crew captures the moment with super wide angle lenses from the Optical Devices Division of FUJIFILM North America Corporation. A television fixture since 1968, Dance’s trademark is his ability to entertain his audience, while he teaches them how they too can land the big fish. His shows, “Bill Dance Outdoors” and “Bill Dance Saltwater,” reach a combined total of over 200 million households airing on the NBC Sports Network, Discovery’s Destination America, and the Outdoors Channel.

Dance’s production team has used FUJINON lenses since 2008, but this year expanded their inventory with the purchase of two ZA12x4.5 BERM ENG/EFP lenses from Universal Media Services of Pensacola, Florida for use on their SonyHD cameras. Shane Bell, producer and editor for “Bill Dance Outdoor,” said, “For each half-hour show, our three-man camera crew spends up to four days fishing and filming from sunup to sundown in conditions that can include saltwater spray and harsh glare off the water. But the quality of the glass used in these lenses really helps us get great footage even with low-light or high-contrast conditions.”
The FUJINON ZA12x4.5BERM is a 2/3″ ENG-style Select Series Super Wide Angle ENG/EFP lens featuring a 2X range extender, DigiPower servo for highly accurate zoom and focus control, and Quick Zoom for rapid focus checks in the telephoto position. Their super wide angle allows the team to include both Bill and his guest fishermen in the same frame, while the quick zoom capability lets them capture the battle between fish and angler from the first strike to the moment Bill hauls his catches aboard. Bell explained, “With these lenses, we’ve been able to deliver captivating content that makes viewers feel as if they’ve climbed aboard for the fishing expedition.”

He continued, “These are also very robust lenses. We have absolute confidence that they will hold up to the rigors of our type of outdoor field production. The field crew has given the new lenses rave reviews, and the price point was also very appealing. For us, it’s an ideal combination. I would recommend FUJINON lenses without hesitation.”

Host Bill Dance added, “We depend on great equipment like FUJINON lenses. It’s what makes us a living!”

Broadcast Pix Highlights New Products at InfoComm 2014

Billerica, Massachusetts –Broadcast Pix™ will showcase new products and updated software tools at InfoComm 2014 (C5737), which runs June 18-20 in Las Vegas, Nev. Among its new offerings is its ClearKey next generation chromakey upgrade for its integrated production switchers, expanded family of Flint™ systems, and new standalone fX3D real-time 3D graphics system and ReVue HD slow motion replay system.

“We have a lot to show the AV community at InfoComm,” said Steve Ellis, general manager, Broadcast Pix. “This has been an exciting year for Broadcast Pix, with our new standalone production products that can help operations with smaller budgets deliver results that rival what you see on national networks. And by expanding the Flint family, we’re making it more affordable than ever to produce live multi-camera productions for broadcast or webcast.”

Part of the new Version 4.0 software for Granite™ and Mica™ systems, as well as Version 3.0 software for Flint, ClearKey features precise, highly adjustable keying that can handle challenging visuals and create more realistic shadow and lighting effects. Its robust color correction removes the most stubborn spill from chromakeyed objects, while a key crop function can confine the keying effect to certain areas of the screen. Chromakey color is selected with a simple eye dropper tool, and intuitive controls make it easy to adjust lighting, shadow and spill correction effects.

Both fX3D and ReVue work independently in existing production environments or can be tightly integrated with Broadcast Pix systems. fX3D features a simplified end-to-end graphics workflow that makes it easy to create and playout high-end graphics. Its three software modules provide an intuitive interface to create graphic content, complete with a built-in 3D modeler and template-based rundown controller. Developed in collaboration with strategic partner EditShare, ReVue plays back two or four channels of video in sync, so it is easy to cut between cameras and find the best replay angle. Its compact controller includes a jog/shuttle wheel for reviewing footage, intuitive controls for manual and preset playback speeds, and dedicated buttons for marking in and out points for playback.

Broadcast Pix has also expanded its family of Flint systems. All three HD models include the same workflow software tools, but provide different input configurations to address different production requirements and budgets. The entry-level system, Flint LE, supports three HDMI or analog (composite, component or S-Video) inputs. Flint LX features four SDI or HDMI input, while Flint LS supports six inputs and offers a choice of six SDI (two of which can be HDMI) or four SDI and two HDMI or analog inputs. All models include two additional network inputs, which are ideal for presentations and Web pages from remote computers.

Flint handles the entire production workflow, from ingest to distribution. It includes a multi-format production mixer that allows operators to include cloud-based content from Skype, Twitter and other resources during live productions. Flint ingests and scales all sources while maintaining constant lip sync. Other built-in tools include an internal Inscriber CG, two-channel clip server, audio mixer with on-screen stereo faders and VU meters, customizable multi-view and HD streaming in a variety of formats.

Also announced for the show is VOX™ Lite, a small-scale version of its popular VOX voice-automated production option. A popular automated solution for visual radio, as well as government and corporate meetings for television, Internet, and in-house projection, VOX Lite eliminates the need for an operator for live productions, as sophisticated software detects which microphone is in use and switches cameras for automatic video-follow-audio productions. VOX Lite supports four microphones and works with any Flint, Granite or Mica integrated production switcher.

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.

Sarasota Upgrades to HD Production for City Commission Coverage with Broadcast Pix

Billerica, Massachusetts – Broadcast Pix™ today announced the city of Sarasota, Fla., has upgraded its City Hall facilities to a native HD infrastructure, anchored by a Granite™ 2000 integrated production switcher, to produce its city commission meetings for television and the Web.

In 2000, the city upgraded its small production facility in City Hall with an S-Video infrastructure. More than a dozen years later, however, the city found it difficult to maintain or replace its outdated equipment. In February, Encore Broadcast Solutions of Tampa, Fla., installed a system-wide upgrade, including an HD-SDI signal path.

“Part of our impetus for doing the upgrade was to upgrade to HD production and adopt a digital workflow,” said Miles Larsen, public broadcasting manager, city of Sarasota.

Coverage of city commission meetings is sent via fiber to master control in a nearby county building for Access Sarasota, a unique government access channel available locally on Comcast Cable and Verizon FiOS that is shared between Sarasota County and the city. Neither Comcast nor Verizon provides an HD channel, so Access Sarasota sends a 4:3 letterbox signal of its meeting coverage to maintain the wide aspect ratio. The city also provides live and on-demand HD meeting coverage on its Web site.

The upgraded system includes three new Panasonic PTZ HD cameras (as well as a previously purchased document camera) in the commission chambers. One camera provides a wide shot of the commission, another shoots close-ups of commission members, and a third is positioned to shoot presenters. The chamber upgrade also included new microphones and an electronic voting system.

In the control room, the Granite system replaced an aging Echolab switcher and PC-based graphics system. “We were not planning on doing a lot of crazy, elaborate stuff,” Larsen recalled. “This is a dedicated switcher just for covering meetings. We actually went back to Encore and asked if the Granite was more than what we needed, and they said we’d want room to grow. They were right.”

With 11 SDI inputs, Granite provides the city commission with enough inputs for all four cameras, as well as DVDs, USB thumb drives and tablets supplied by residents, when necessary. Plus, Encore and Broadcast Pix engineers were able to create an API to allow our switcher to integrate with the AMX control system in the commission chambers, so a staff member can run the production, if necessary.

Granite’s built-in production tools, including the customizable Fluent-View multi-view, have also improved workflow during meetings. In particular, the Inscriber CG is a “huge upgrade” from the previous graphics system, which Larsen said was poorly integrated and poorly positioned in the control room. “Having the CG inside the switcher is so nice,” he added. “There’s no rolling your chair back and forth between workstations, and it’s so much easier to make changes.”

The new system has only been in use since March, but Larsen is already planning to use Granite’s built-in clip store to add roll-ins to open and close meeting coverage. “We can do things we just couldn’t do before, and we have the freedom to think creatively and improve our production values,” he said. “Every time I sit down in front of the Granite, from the beginning of the meeting to the end of the meeting, I’m more convinced it was the right decision. It makes our productions easier and better.”

New PESA Xstream C22 Compact Streaming System Offers Flexible AV Configurations for Sharing Content

Huntsville, Alabama – PESA, a leading designer and manufacturer of professional audio and video distribution solutions, will introduce its PESA Xstream C22 compact streaming system at InfoComm 2014 (Booth C6014), which runs June 18-20 in Las Vegas, Nev. The latest addition to the PESA Xstream family of multi-channel HD IP streaming devices, the C22 includes I/O options for standalone streaming applications or as part of a larger hybrid broadcast system.

The C22 can be configured as a two port video encoder or two port decoder, orcan include one of each. It includes HDMI, coax and Ethernet (for an IP-based camera) video inputs, and optional SFP modules allow multiple configurations (fiber, HD-BNC, A-to-D, D-to-A and other SFP modules) for expanded connectivity. The C22 also supports two external audio sources, which can be synchronized to either or both video streams during an event.

With built-in genlock, video signals can be locked to an external source for glitch-free video switching in broadcast and pro AV applications. An HDMI out allows for local preview, while an integrated Web server allows full remote control, so no personnel are required on site for streaming content to a production facility.

“The PESA XStream C22 is an affordable streaming solution for so many markets, including medical or educational applications, justice and government, security and first responders, and sports and entertainment production. The dollar-to-stream value is significant, especially compared to other products that only offer one video stream,” said Chris Thomas, PESA vice president of engineering and CTO. “It’s a great standalone solution or it can be used with other routing equipment to share content between facilities.”

Multiple C22 units can be used to allow AV professionals to compress, stream and share high-quality content between locations and enable streaming in existing video distribution. The C22 is also an ideal bi-directional content sharing solution. Two C22 units can be configured with one encoder to send video and one decoder to receive video, allowing live interaction between sites.

The PESA Xstream C22 will be available this summer.

Miami’s 1300 Studios Keeps Hot Shoots Cool with Zylight

LOS ANGELES – Denis Lauzon has built a 30-year career in advertising, still photography and video production. As the co-owner of 1300 Studios, a full service studio in Miami, he has built a production and rental facility designed to accommodate the needs of professionals and their crews.

The facility includes a 12-person conference room equipped with a 90-inch studio monitor, lounge that doubles as a green room with a 60-inch monitor, three-station hair and makeup room with daylight-balanced lighting, kitchen for food-based projects, and reception area. Plus, there are a number of industrial spaces for various types of location shooting surrounding the studio, as well as five acres of open space for exterior shoots.

In the 30×40-foot studio, Lauzon has taken the necessary steps to limit his time on a ladder. He keeps four Zylight IS3c LED large panel lights mounted on the lighting grid, two of which are used to color the cyc. Lauzon uses the Zylight Remote to wirelessly adjust the color and intensity of the IS3c lights on the grid. (The lights can also be controlled via DMX through XLR connectors.)

All Zylight lighting instruments feature Zylink wireless technology, which allows remote control of all functions, including color hue and saturation, color temperature, and brightness. Plus, Zylights that are linked together adjust simultaneously for uniform results.

Recently, Lauzon was approached by a client who wanted to match the background to precise logo colors, which Lauzon was able to accomplish quickly without gels or filters. During a music video shoot, Lauzon used the Zylight

Remote to dynamically change the background color of the cyc during the recording artist’s performance. “The whole wall was lit and changing color,” Lauzon explained. “It looked great.”

Despite pre-planning, performers can cause problems with chromakey by the choice of color. Lauzon has programmed two memory presets on the IS3c lights – blue and greenscreen – so it is easy to accommodate last minute changes. “Wardrobe and hair color dictate chromakey,” Lauzon explained. “To fix the issue, we press the button. There’s no repainting backdrops.”

Now, the only time Lauzon has to get on the ladder is to adjust his IS3cs is to flip the instruments for lens flare effects in music videos. The IS3c’s advanced color mixing system provides rich, accurate color rendition, while its 90-degree spread makes it an ideal soft light for widescreen shots.

1300 Studios owns seven IS3c lights with soft boxes, available for rental, plus two F8 LED Fresnels (one daylight balanced and one tungsten) and one Z90 compact LED light. Lauzon said the IS3c is great on location, and he has been impressed with the F8 LED Fresnel, which collapses to less than for inches thick for easy transport. “There’s no other Fresnel like that,” Lauzon said. “The industry is definitely changing toward LEDs. There are other brands out there, but Zylight has the best features we were looking for in one package.”
