NEP Studios Introduces Transportable Control Room

Portable Control Room Provides Everything Smaller Productions Need Without Requiring a Permanent Studio

PITTSBURGH — March 11, 2014 — NEP Studios today announced the launch of a unique transportable studio that can be shipped to any location in North America, where it can be fully operational often in less than 12 hours. NEP’s new transportable control room provides a full complement of state-of-the-art control-room equipment to accommodate productions with up to eight cameras — making it ideal for smaller or shorter-term television programs that might not have the budget or the need to rent a permanent studio space.

“In many big cities such as New York and Los Angeles, long-term studio space for productions can, at times, be scarce,” said Barry Katz, senior vice president and general manager of NEP Studios. “The new transportable control room is a direct response to our clients who need a fast and cost-effective solution, and don’t want a long-term studio. With this unique transportable solution, we can offer them the capabilities of a permanent control room, complete with consoles and furniture, with the flexibility and efficiency of a flypack.”

This new studio solution was designed for smaller productions that have shorter run times — such as series pilots, shows that are in a limited-audience testing period, talk shows, magazine shows, multicamera corporate or enterprise video projects, or productions that rely mainly on webcasting.

Although this transportable solution can be customized to include any equipment combination specified by the client, the standard configuration supports productions of six to eight cameras and includes a choice of a Grass Valley Kayak, Kalypso, Karrera, or Kayenne switcher; a 48-input Studer Vista 5 audio-mixing desk; a six-channel DVD-RAM recorder; and eight DVE systems. Also included are a complete Riedel intercom system, an integrated router, and a monitor wall that can be scaled and configured to the size and dimensions of the production space. NEP’s transportable control room includes chairs and consoles that can be assembled in up to three rows to accommodate up to 10 technicians and production staff.

“We’re excited about this new transportable control room, because it adds a truly unique and flexible solution to NEP’s worldwide pool of industry-leading resources,” Katz said. “It also broadens the range of solutions we are able to offer our clients for smaller, short-term productions — adding more scalability to our offerings.”

BYU-Idaho Relies on Front Porch Digital for Foundation of Its Video Workflow

DIVArchive(R) CSM System Drives Storage and Search, While DIVAnet(R) Links University to Off-Campus Disaster Recovery Sites

LAFAYETTE, Colo. — March 10, 2014 — Front Porch Digital, the global leader in cloud-based content storage management (CSM) solutions, today announced that Brigham Young University-Idaho (BYU-Idaho) has installed a DIVArchive(R) CSM system and a DIVAnet(R) multisite content distribution solution in its A/V productions department, which provides video services for the entire campus. In addition to recording a weekly devotional, the department records events and other productions throughout the campus for educational purposes, then stores the files in DIVArchive. It uses DIVAnet to connect with other BYU campuses and church facilities within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), which owns and operates BYU-Idaho.

“Every production center on campus went completely tapeless about three years ago without a good digital archiving system in place. We’ve tried a few solutions but always had storage and retrieval issues, to the point where users didn’t want to move their files out of active storage because they just didn’t trust the archive,” said Luke Hale, digital systems engineer in the BYU-Idaho A/V productions department. “Our Front Porch Digital systems have alleviated all of those problems. The systems are built for broadcast and designed to prevent downtime, which is critical in a situation like ours. With Front Porch Digital, we finally have a reliable storage architecture that people will use.”

DIVArchive met BYU-Idaho’s critical requirements for reliability and discoverability with plenty of space to enable the university to keep its active storage clear. An important factor in the installation is DIVArchive’s seamless integration with BYU-Idaho’s media asset management (MAM) system.

“For us, everything is driven by the MAM, and our DIVArchive system is a powerful backend engine that drives all of our storage and discovery,” Hale said.

Another critical requirement for BYU-Idaho was disaster recovery. DIVAnet provides a way to transfer high-value assets to disaster recovery locations off campus that also use DIVArchive. At the same time, it gives BYU-Idaho a way to connect with other campuses and churches to share media for production purposes.

BYU-Idaho has integrated DIVArchive and DIVAnet with all elements of its production, building many of its video workflows with DIVArchive as the foundation. Every piece of video that will be used on the website, in a course, at events, or elsewhere, touches the DIVArchive system in one way or another.

“BYU-Idaho’s A/V department is instrumental in enhancing the learning environment for students and preserving the LDS church’s messages,” said Dave Polyard, senior vice president of sales for Front Porch Digital. “In DIVArchive and DIVAnet, the university has a reliable storage architecture that users can trust, as well as a means of moving content to disaster recovery sites to ensure its critical assets are protected.”

IMS Productions Builds New HD Mobile Unit With Beck TV

IMS-HD3 Expands IMS Productions’ Fleet of State-of-the-Art Trucks and Enables Company to Provide Dedicated Unit for Lakers Home Games

AUSTIN, Texas — March 6, 2014 — Beck TV (formerly Beck Associates), one of the United States’ premier design-build systems integrators, today announced that the company has completed a state-of-the-art HD mobile production truck for multimedia production company IMS Productions. Dubbed IMS-HD3, the new 53-foot expando unit is currently serving as a dedicated production unit for Los Angeles Lakers home basketball games at the Staples Center.

“We chose to build HD3 with Beck TV because we heard great things about the company and because the project price fit our budget,” said Paul Nijak, director of engineering for IMS Productions. “The build itself was smoother than I imagined it could be, largely because of the company’s clear commitment to getting the job done right, no matter what it takes. Beck TV’s work was very accurate, and we finished the truck on time and on budget.”

IMS Productions is located in Indianapolis just across the street from the legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The company’s HD remote-production truck fleet crisscrosses the nation to provide live production services for national sports and entertainment broadcasts and events. IMS-HD3 is a 12-camera stand-alone truck that requires no B unit.

Among the systems built into the truck are Sony 2400 cameras, a Grass Valley Kayenne K-Frame HD switcher, a Calrec Artemis Beam audio console, and Sony and EVS machines, with Evertz audio and video routing. Nijak supplied the trailer design and worked with the Beck TV team in Texas to bring the project to completion.

“Once the trailer got to Beck TV’s Austin facility, I spent time on site, almost becoming part of the integration team,” added Nijak. “I knew already that the company’s integrators were part of the staff, and during the build I found that this approach allowed Beck TV to apply an uncommonly high level of quality control.”

“Working with Paul and the rest of the IMS team to build IMS-HD3 was a complete pleasure,” said Fred Beck, president & director of engineering at Beck TV. “The folks at IMS are professionals who know exactly what they want, and that always makes an integrator’s job easier. We are currently in the middle of building another truck with IMS — the new IMS-HD5, a very robust double-expando unit — and we anticipate another successful IMS truck rollout in the very near future.”

With Archive Bridge, operators have a greater level of visibility into the workflow and can track the status of all archival requests. Facilities can now archive and restore to and from a single location, minimizing cost of the archival infrastructure.

A Statistics Reporting feature empowers users to monitor various data values in order to assess the performance of the infrastructure.

Monitoring reports include:
- Total global assets archived and/or restored
- Total assets archived and/or restored per location
- Average wait time of an archive and/or restore request in the queue
- Average execution time of an archive and/or restore request

Riedel Communications
Stand 8.0 K80

MediorNet Now Supports Studer Consoles
Riedel will present the MN-ST-AL-2, the company’s new MediorNet expansion card for Studer consoles. The MN-ST-AL-2 card provides two ports, each with redundant interfaces, for connecting Studer mixing consoles via the Studer A-Link protocol. In this way, the consoles become an integrated part of the entire signal distribution infrastructure. Users can gain up to 384 channels per connection and realize significant cost savings in cabling and maintenance while benefitting from MediorNet’s unparalleled flexibility and signal quality. Routing of the audio stream is handled by the user-friendly MediorWorks control and management software via drag-and-drop programming, which makes last-minute changes easy and intuitive. Additional routing adjustments can be performed via Pro-Bel commands or the new EMBER+ remote control protocol in MediorNet.

One MediorNet Modular frame equipped with A-Link interface cards becomes a cost-efficient audio router with 4,608 inputs and outputs in just two rack units. The card supports all Studer Vista 5 and Vista 9 consoles, as well as OnAir 3000 consoles.

RockNet Console Interfaces for SSL, Soundcraft Si, Studer, and Yamaha
Next-generation firmware for the RockNet RN.334.MD MADI interface makes SSL mixing consoles an integrated part of the Riedel RockNet digital audio network, with complete remote control functionality over all gains and the flexibility of RockNet’s renowned independent gain feature. As a result, several mixing consoles can operate with the same mic preamps without affecting one another — a capability that greatly simplifies multiconsole and recording setups. Riedel’s RN.344.SI card enables integration with any Soundcraft Si Compact console, supporting 32 inputs and 32 outputs to the RockNet system. The interface enables remote control of any RockNet mic preamp and also offers the benefit of RockNet’s independent gain feature. The RN.343.VI card ensures compatibility with select Soundcraft and Studer consoles while the RN.341.MY works with select Yamaha consoles and host devices.

“Tonewood iPhone cases are the market’s first mobile accessories to use the same select woods as today’s finest acoustic instruments,” said Dave Dilitkanich, founder, Tonewood Products. “With a combination of durable strength and one-of-a-kind design, the cases provide a precise two-part fit, a padded inner lining, and a variety of wood types to complement the elegance of popular iPhone models. The result is premium device protection that allows consumers to showcase their passion for music and design, wherever they go.”

Available in maple, rosewood, and mahogany, Tonewood Cases are made from premium tonewoods — the same high-end woods used in acoustic guitars — custom made to fit iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, and iPhone 5s mobile devices. Featuring distinctive wood grain patterns, every case is completely unique. No matter which wood type is selected, every Tonewood Case features wooden volume and power buttons, interior felt padding and rubber lining to safely cushion the phone, and two-piece construction for easy removal — creating the strongest possible case without making any compromises to the aesthetics of the wood or the iPhone’s design.

Available now, Tonewood’s iPhone cases begin at a retail price of $79.99 and can be purchased online at www.guitarcenter.com or directly from the company’s website. More information on Tonewood’s full range of products is available at www.tonewoodcases.com.
