Broadcast Pix Announces VOX

Breakthrough Voice-Automated Video Production – No Operator Needed

Billerica, Massachusetts - Broadcast Pix™ today announced VOX™, a breakthrough product for cost-effective live video production that works with any Granite™, Mica™, or Slate™ system to produce voice-activated video productions. VOX eliminates the need for an operator during live productions, as it detects which microphone is being used and uses sophisticated software to switch to an interesting camera position and add appropriate graphics. VOX is ideal for government and corporate meetings, interviews, video coverage of radio programs, and other productions with multiple microphones, and can be used for television broadcasts, Internet streaming, and in-house projection.

While VOX can simply switch cameras, it has the intelligence to do much more. VOX integrates with Broadcast Pix’s built-in Fluent™ Macros to create automatic video-follow-audio. Fluent Macros can be programmed to select camera presets, roll clips and animations, add or remove titles, and even execute powerful compositions such as up to six picture-in-pictures for interviews. Multiple macros can be assigned to each microphone – and selection criteria can be established – so automated productions can offer variety in shot selection and graphics, as if a technical director was at the controls.

“Broadcast Pix is known for integrated production systems that create compelling live video with minimal staff. Now, VOX can create great video with no operator at all,” said Ken Swanton, president of Broadcast Pix. “It’s a breakthrough in cost-effective production.”

VOX is already in use at Q-music, a radio network in Belgium and Holland. Q-music broadcasted live concerts and other events from its Q-Beach House in Ostend, Belgium, and streamed video programming on the Internet. The video productions were part of a pilot project for the network’s upcoming studio-based “Visual Radio” programming, which will be produced in three facilities with VOX and Broadcast Pix Mica systems.

The house was rigged with 12 cameras, including four in the on-site radio studio that were controlled through VOX. With the help of integrator Burst Video, Q-music created several macros for each studio microphone. As a result, while the video followed the audio, there were a variety of directing commands (selected randomly by the system) to produce more appealing production value.

“It is easy to put a camera in a studio,” said Rudi Wynants, engineer at Q-music, “but it is not so easy to make this interesting to watch. Broadcast Pix VOX makes it more dynamic by not giving the audience the feeling that everything is automated by a computer. For normal operations, the system runs completely standalone.”

Housed in a 1 RU chassis with eight microphone inputs, VOX includes camera control software for Panasonic and Sony robotic camera systems, and connects to any Broadcast Pix system via an RS-232 serial cable. Multiple VOX boxes can be cascaded to support up to 104 microphones.

Conditions can be set to prevent coughs or one-word comments from changing cameras, minimizing unnecessary camera changes. Microphone inputs can also be prioritized, so a host, for example, can be given priority over guests. Plus, a host can control VOX using a small override panel, through the included SoftPanel software on a laptop or Android device, or with an iPad or iPhone app. As a result, the host can roll an introduction or a commercial, or even override the automated VOX control to bring up a specific shot.

VOX will be available worldwide in December 2011. For more information about VOX, including a video created using VOX with no operator, please visit www.broadcastpix.com/VOX.

About Broadcast Pix Broadcast Pix is the leader in integrated live video production systems. Its systems provide the best control surface for combining cameras, clips and graphics to create compelling live video. These surfaces enable total control of the built-in multi-format switcher, clip store, graphics system with a Harris or Chyron CG, and device controls.

Imagina US Manages Traffic, Programming for Cable Networks with Broadway Systems

Grand Rapids, Mich. – Broadway Systems, the leading provider of advertising management software for cable networks, announced today that Imagina US, a leader in Hispanic entertainment programming, has selected Broadway’s end-to-end software platform to manage traffic and programming for four cable networks at its U.S. headquarters in Miami.

Imagina US began using the Broadway Traffic and Finance, Program Management, and Reporting modules for back office operations on May 30 for CentroaméricaTV, which provides programming from Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama; Pasiones Latin America and Pasiones US, two 24-hour channels dedicated to “telenovelas;” and Televisión Dominicana, which features a variety of programming from the Dominican Republic.

Marilyn Vidal-Novo, traffic manager, Imagina US, said the transition to Broadway from the previous traffic system was very easy. “The implementation of the Broadway software was the best conversion I’ve ever done,” she explained. “Based on my previous experience transitioning many software systems, I expected a delay. There was no delay whatsoever, and the implementation exceeded my expectations.“

Imagina US has a unique business model that relies on agencies for sales orders, not its own sales team. However, as its cable networks grow and an in-house sales staff is added, Imagina US will be able to seamlessly add the Broadway Sales Planning and Proposal module to the current configuration.

“With its user-friendly interface, Broadway’s reliable, end-to-end solution simplifies the management of day-to-day activities as well as the transition from other systems,” said John Sorensen, president of Broadway Systems. “Our modular approach will also make it easy for Imagina US to accommodate the future growth of its networks and sales department.”

About Imagina US
Imagina US operates through its subsidiaries: Promofilm, dedicated to the production of content and TV formats, and Media World, a division focused on the development and distribution of thematic channels, exploitation rights, and technical services in the audiovisual field.

At the show, FOR-A products will have a showcase at the booth of its Argentinean distributor SVC (Sistemas de Video Comunicacion SA), a sales, engineering, and systems integration company based in Buenos Aires. SVC has provided over 25 years of service and support to the Latin broadcast community and is a vital business partner to FOR-A in the region, which encompasses Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Bolivia.

In the SVC booth, CAPER 2011 show-goers will see a variety of FOR-A solutions for cost-effective, live broadcast production including: the VFC-7000 HD Super Slow Motion Camera; the FA-9500 3G/HD/SD multi-purpose signal processor; LTR-100HS LTO-5 Video Archiving Recorder, VTW-330 HD/SD Character Generator and HVS-300HS and HVS-350HS live video switcher.

CAPER 2011 will mark the first time that FOR-A has shown the VFC-7000 Super Slow Motion Camera in a full broadcast setup—including a high-end lens, viewfinder, and tripod—in Latin America. The VFC-7000 is a compact, lightweight, user-friendly camera capable of high-speed HD recording from 24 to 700 fps. It offers a high-sensitivity CMOS color sensor; electronic high-speed shutter of up to 1/200,000th of a second; and recording times ranging from 9.8 to 29.5 seconds.

“The ability to capture fast-moving subjects without any motion blur makes the VFC-7000 ideal for live sports,” said Pedro Silvestre, Sales Director, FOR-A Corporation of America. “The VFC-7000 is part of a comprehensive, affordable FOR-A product range which, when used together, meets critical live production needs.”

FOR-A will also show two powerful, compact HD/SD video switchers: the HVS-300HS 1-M/E portable switcher and the HVS-350HS 1.5-M/E switcher.

CAPER 2011 is also an opportunity to exhibit the FA-9500, a 3G/HD/SD multi-purpose signal processor for use in multi-standard, multi-format DTV environments. Besides functioning as a frame synchronizer, the FA-9500 provides up/down/cross/aspect conversion, plus a second converter for down/cross/aspect conversion, a color corrector, Dolby E encoder/decoder, and automatic video optimizer for all types of video and audio signals.

With its 1.5-terrabytes of recording capacity, the FOR-A LTR-100HS video archiving recorder ingests and archives large quantities of HD media cost-effectively using LTO-5 datatape. Equipped with a high-quality MPEG-2 encoder, the LTR-100HS includes an MXF wrapper/un-wrapper so that MXF files recorded in real-time to LTO-5 tape can be used directly by nonlinear editing systems.

“We’re looking forward to meeting current and prospective Latin American clients at CAPER 2011,” Silvestre added. “We’re confident that we have very compelling production solutions that will appeal to this rapidly growing DTV market.”

MOBILE BROADCAST INNOVATOR, CORPLEX, RELIES ON FUJIFILM CUSTOMER SERVICE TO MAINTAIN ITS REPUTATION FOR EXCELLENCE

Wayne, N.J. – Chicago’s Corplex Mobile Television has earned its status as an award-winning innovator in live broadcasting over more than 25 years covering sports, news and entertainment events.

So, it’s no surprise that this pioneer in all-digital mobile production has demonstrated a commitment to innovative technology along with its latest order of lenses from FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Optical Devices Division. This order coincides with the recent opening of the division’s fifth service center – in nearby Hanover Park, Illinois – this past spring. The new service facility was started to provide more locally available and immediate customer support to its Chicago-area customer base, something Corplex is already taking advantage of.

Corplex is constantly seeking the “latest and greatest” technology for its facilities, which now includes three 53-foot expanding HD mobile units each with a graphics/support trailer, and reliable, state of the art customer service is essential to its continued success.

According to Corplex CEO Carter Ruehrdanz, “We’ve been using FUJINON lenses for so many years, we probably now have more than sixty lenses. And we’re so busy, we use them every week. Other companies also make great lenses, but we’re really happy with the fact that Fujifilm now has local service here in Chicago. We can’t afford to be down at all. We’re especially impressed with the more aggressive turnaround time and pricing we’re seeing.”

All of the new FUJINON lenses incorporate some of the most innovative features in the industry. To pair with its Sony HDC1500 cameras, Corplex has chosen two of FUJINON’s most advanced and industry-leading XA101x8.9BESM Super Telephoto EFP HD lenses, six HA23x7.6BERM Telephoto ENG HD lenses with 2x extenders, and two HA14x4.5BERM Super Wide Angle ENG/EFP HD lenses with 2.2x extenders.

The new lenses will be used on Corplex trucks for large sporting events, including NFL football, Major League Baseball playoffs, golf and hockey, as well as high profile entertainment programs. Ruehrdanz said, “We stayed with FUJINON lenses so that all the big lenses are from the same manufacturer, and we can swap things around. Our Platinum truck has two 101x lenses in addition to five 87x. The longer 101x lenses are an important element and can make a huge difference in the production. We’re also putting the new ENG lenses right to work on our handheld cameras for the beginning of the NFL season.”

In addition to their new purchases, Corplex has a large inventory of FUJINON lenses that offer a consistency in lens design that allows the servo modules and controllers to work on any box lens regardless of their age. “Because of this we’re able to have plenty of spares and additional pieces to make them full servo when needed,” said Ruehrdanz.

“It’s our job to supply every piece of gear and make sure everything’s working all the time,” said Ruehrdanz. “That’s why having local customer service is so important. We’re just looking for quality, reliability and good support. FUJINON, its lenses, and its new service center have absolutely made a big difference to us in achieving that goal.”

Mountain Lake PBS Upgrades Control Room to HD with Broadcast Pix Granite 5000 Live Video Production System

Billerica, Massachusetts – Broadcast Pix™ today announced that Plattsburgh, N.Y.-based Mountain Lake PBS (WCFE) has installed a Granite™ 5000 live video production system as part of its transition to full HD production and distribution. Completed in March, the updated control room and studio produces a variety of local programs, including the weekly Mountain Lake Journal newsmagazine.

The PBS member station serves the Burlington-Plattsburgh market (DMA #95), which includes areas of Vermont, New York, and Quebec. Director of engineering Charlie Zarbo said the studio and control room upgrades were the final stage of the station’s HD migration, which began with master control in 2007. The Granite 5000, purchased through HB Communications, replaced an aging Grass Valley 200 switcher. The HD upgrade also included new Hitachi Z-HD5000 studio cameras, Clear-Com intercom system, and Yamaha DM2000VCM digital audio mixer.

Zarbo has been very pleased with the Granite 5000 and is a fan of its PixButtons, which dynamically display sources and file names. “The control surface is nice, pretty intuitive. Whatever changes you make are reflected in the PixButtons, which is nice,” he said. “It’s got very good bang for the buck. Broadcast Pix does it all in one box at a very attractive price. We like it a lot.”

Beyond its 2 M/E switcher, Granite 5000 provides Mountain Lake PBS with a number of integrated Fluent™ workflow tools, including a clip store that is used regularly for productions. Although Granite includes a built-in Inscriber GS CG, Zarbo said the station produces its graphics with Adobe Photoshop, then easily transfers them to Granite via Fluent Watch-Folders.

Mountain Lake PBS replaced its CRT monitor wall with two 50-inch LCDs, which are fed by Granite’s built-in Fluent-View, providing a complete display for the technical director and producer. The control room also has smaller monitors for dedicated CG and audio use that are also fed by Fluent-View.

Zarbo said Fluent-View is very easy to arrange, so every TD tends to create their own on-screen look. “It’s very flexible,” he explained. “You can create a layout, save it, and recall it for a specific shoot.”
