An Easy Upgrade Path Makes DK-Technologies PT0710M Waveform Monitor The Ideal Choice For PERFORM

A chance encounter at last year’s IBC exhibition has resulted in Danish metering manufacturer DK-Technologies supplying two PT0710M audio and video waveform monitors to PERFORM, a world leader at broadcasting and commercialising sport in digital media.

PERFORM’s Engineering Project Manager Mike Edwards was at the show investigating equipment for two new Avid edit suites the company was building for its OMNISPORT news service. At the entrance of Hall 8 he came across the DK-Technologies stand and stopped to demo the company’s products.

“It really is worth going to IBC,? he says. “Had it not be been for the position of the DK stand, and the excellent demo we received from Andy Page, we would not have known anything about the company’s waveform monitor products and would have only looked at Tektronix and Hamlet.?

Oxygen DCT Launches New Colour Calibration Service For The Broadcast and Post Production Industry

Oxygen DCT has launched a new service to help broadcasters and post production facilities re-align and maintain LCD picture monitors with the correct broadcast colourimetry.

Picture monitors ‘drift’ from factory settings and need re-calibration because significant differences between the brightness and colour temperature of a group of monitors in a stack can be both irritating and tiring on the eyes. In the case of Grade One monitors, which are used for high-grade ‘reference’ assessment of picture quality, post production and transmission, poor alignment can lead to problems with quality control if broadcast engineers can’t tell if the monitor is at fault or the incoming signal.

Oxygen DCT’s new Colour Calibration Service aims to rectify the problem by re-aligning monitors and ensuring they comply with ITU Recommendation ITU-R709, which defines the sampling systems, matrix values and filter characteristics for both Y, B-Y, R-Y and RGB high definition component digital more

Jünger Audio’s LEVEL MAGIC™ Technology Helps Deluxe Digital Studios Meet Differing Requirements For Loudness

When creating full range audio mixes for a variety of international broadcasters, meeting each customer’s different requirement for dynamic range, peaks and overall audio loudness can be a tricky business.

In this situation what is needed is an easy to use dynamic range processor that can create a variety of masters, but without having a detrimental effect on the mix.

Deluxe Digital Studios faced precisely this situation and its solution was to install a Jünger Audio B46 LEVEL MAGIC digital dynamics processor. The unit was supplied by Jünger Audio’s UK distributor Aspen Media and is now fully operational at Deluxe Digital Studio’s London facilities where it is being used on a range of projects, most notably foreign language dubbing.

Deluxe Digital Studios is the post production and digital film services division of Deluxe, a leading provider of entertainment industry more

Prism Sound Helps Jim Stemke Caputure A You Tube Sensation

Prism Sound equipment played an integral part in capturing the latest viral hit to take You Tube by a storm – a choral rendition of the “Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s Messiah, which was performed by 683 singers in front of stunned shoppers at Macy’s department store in Philadelphia.
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wp_RHnQ-jgU)

Led by the Opera Company of Philadelphia, this unique performance was captured on video and has already received more than six million hits. It has also been picked up by CNN and ABC and has been the fourth most shared video on Facebook.

The idea was conceived by the Knights Foundation in association with the Philadelphia Opera Company and Macy’s. The Knight’s Foundation is funding countless “Random Acts of Culture? in various locations all over the USA, but the Macy’s stunt has been far and away its most successful. Macy’s has been flooded with calls of appreciation more

Sweden’s Anaview Invests In A Prism Sound dScope Series III Audio Analyzer

Anaview AB, a Swedish technology house that specialises in providing OEM electronics for the audio industry, is the latest European company to purchase a dScope Series III analogue and digital audio analyser from Prism Sound.

Anaview is using its dScope Series III for testing distortion, bandwidth, noise and multi-tone intermodulation products in the development of switch mode amplifiers. It’s an exacting task.

“Perceived sound quality is a very complex topic,? comments Anaview’s CEO Patrik Bostrom. “An amplifier that performs well on the typically presented graphs does not necessarily sound good. In order to find a way to methodically design a good sounding amplifier one has to have a measurement system where the input signal and the performed measurements can be fully controlled by the user. For example, the multi-tone modulation is more important than THD at one frequency. The ability afforded by dScope to design our own test more
