Chyron Products at BVE 2012:

BlueNet(TM) Graphics Creation and Playout This year at BVE 2012, Chyron will demonstrate BlueNet(TM), a comprehensive solution that fully addresses broadcasters’ requirements for streamlined end-to-end graphics workflows. BlueNet leverages Chyron’s acclaimed suite of graphics tools for ordering and graphics asset management, collaborative graphics creation, and real-time playout. Integration with Axis World Graphics, Chyron’s cutting-edge cloud-based services offering, extends the power of BlueNet workflows to speed even the most sophisticated graphics to air.

BlueNet minimizes the cycle time from creation to air, ensuring very fast news and sports workflows. Order management tools allow producer-driven content to move smoothly into a rundown, and management tools and easily accessible templates enable instant and efficient collaboration in preparing graphics.

Channel Box² Branding and Promo System Chyron also will showcase its newly enhanced Channel Box². Channel Box² is a next-generation channel branding system that features 2D/3D design with a complete data acquisition toolset for all branding applications.

Thailand’s Education Ministry Builds End-to-End IPTV Communications Network Based on Haivision

Haivision’s Advanced Furnace(TM) IP System and Barracuda(TM) H.264 Encoders Drive Controlled and Secure Video Access to Link Headquarters With Educators Throughout the Country

MONTREAL and CHICAGO — Jan. 10, 2012 — Haivision Network Video today announced that Thailand’s Office of the Basic Education Commission (OBEC) has chosen Haivision’s advanced Furnace(TM) IP video system and Barracuda(TM) H.264 encoders to create an end-to-end IPTV solution linking the agency’s headquarters with educators throughout the country. The Haivision infrastructure enables OBEC to maintain a reliable, real-time video link with geographically dispersed officers and staff, facilitating communications throughout the organization and supporting OBEC’s mission to serve as the education hub for Thailand.

“In order to meet our growing communications requirements, we sought a reliable end-to-end IPTV solution to link all of our facilities so that they could better share expertise and ensure equal development and access across all regions. With Haivision, we’ve been able to take our internal communications to the next level — and we rely on Haivision’s complete IPTV solution to drive controlled and secure video across our entire network,” said OBEC’s Ajarn Mana. “The Barracuda encoder delivers high-performance H.264 encoding in a uniquely compact form factor, and its ability to deliver multiple streams at different resolutions and bitrates to multiple destinations makes it a perfect fit within Haivision’s Furnace end-to-end H.264 IP video solution.”

Fueled by Barracuda H.264 encoders, the advanced Furnace IP video system delivers media to Haivision Stingray(TM) set-top boxes and InStream(TM) players (available on any desktop), enabling OBEC to share live video throughout its Bangkok facilities. The IP video network serves multiple purposes on a daily basis; for instance, live broadcast meetings from headquarters to the education office area notify teachers of new policies and keep all staff informed of general announcements. The system has also proved invaluable for distance learning purposes and for officer and staff training by providing a high-quality live video link from headquarters to PCs for e-training. With the first phase in place, OBEC is now implementing the second phase of the network to enable recording, playback, and WAN streaming.

“As Thailand’s central education authority responsible for teachers and schools across the nation, OBEC has recognized the need for communications and media accessibility across its organization and throughout the country,” said Charles Dobson, senior director, international business development, Haivision Network Video. “The Furnace IP video distribution system provides end-to-end protection of both internal and broadcast content, from the encoders within the OBEC headquarters all the way to the viewers throughout regional facilities.”

# # #

About OBEC The Office of the Basic Education Commission, or OBEC, based in Bangkok, Thailand, has established a core government mission to become the education hub for the country. To this end, the OBEC supports a range of strategic and administrative functions, allocating budget and resources to support programs such as developing teaching standards, building infrastructure, ensuring all classes have high-speed Internet connections, and defining programs for studies at the K-12 level. Today, OBEC administers 14,000 schools and has an ongoing program to upgrade or certify at least one school for every Tambon (or regional district) nationwide.

About Haivision Network Video Haivision delivers advanced technology for streaming, recording, managing, and distributing secure IP video and interactive media within the enterprise, education, medical/healthcare, and federal/military markets. Haivision is a private company based in Montreal and Chicago, with technical excellence centers in Beaverton, Ore.; Austin, Texas; and Hamburg, Germany.

BenQ Announces North American Launch of Latest XL Series Gaming Monitors

XL2420T and XL2420TX Prove that ‘Gaming is in the Details’ for Professional and Competitive FPS Gamers

IRVINE, Calif. — Jan. 10, 2012 — BenQ America Corp. today announced the North American launch of the XL2420T and XL2420TX, the company’s latest gaming monitors for professional and competitive FPS (first-person shooter) games. Engineered in conjunction with ZOWIE GEAR — a manufacturer of high-end professional gaming gear and R&D partner to BenQ — the new XL Series models reflect BenQ’s commitment to delivering cutting-edge pro gaming monitors equipped with innovative features to help gamers take their performance to the next level.

“The new XL Series models prove that ‘gaming is in the details,’ building on the technology of our popular XL2410T monitors, which were featured at huge gaming events such as DreamHack Summer 2011, Global Starcraft II League, and GamesCon 2011, ESEA,”” said Lars Yoder, President of BenQ America Corp. “Offering a 120-Hz refresh rate, 2-ms GTG response time, and 12M:1 dynamic contrast ratio, the XL2420T and XL2420TX not only provide the fundamentals essential to mastering FPS gaming, but also possess exclusive features meticulously constructed to provide FPS gamers with the ultimate sense of ease and control.”

The talent behind the design of the XL2420T and XL2420TX includes prominent Counter-Strike legends such as Emil “HeatoN” Christensen, Abdisamad “SpawN” Mohamed, Tommy “Potti” Ingemarsson, Christer “fisker” Eriksson, and Michael “ahl” Korduner, as well as Xanver from UMX-Gaming. This collaboration yielded specific technical refinements critical to FPS gamers: a super-fast response rate, razor-sharp clarity, and tailored control.

The XL2420T and XL2420TX’s unique color-engine technology allows gamers to brighten the image display without over-exposing white levels, while the monitors’ Black eQualizer reveals critical combat details with improved visibility in darkened areas. This enables gamers to screen critical combat details quickly and with added game play comfort, while BenQ’s S Switch remote control allows them to switch swiftly between customized display settings for gaming and entertainment. The stylish controller offers a scroll button that facilitates fast navigation and adjustment of the OSD setting.

To accommodate individual viewing preferences and requirements, the XL2420T and XL2420TX feature a Display Mode that allows gamers to switch among several monitor screen sizes — 17″(4:3), 19″(4:3), 19″ widescreen (16:10), 21.5″ widescreen (16:9), 22″ widescreen (16:10), 23″ widescreen(16:9), and 24″ widescreen (16:9). The monitors’ Smart Scaling feature gives the freedom to scale the screen manually to any custom size.

The XL2420T and XL2420TX offer two variations to the preset FPS Mode. Tailored by HeatoN and SpawN, the FPS1 mode configures and optimizes the display for Counter-Strike 1.6, and the FPS2 mode does likewise for Counter-Strike Source, as recommended by BenQ. With these specialized preset modes offering optimal brightness, contrast, sharpness, and color tint, gamers gain the advantage of being able to spot and track their opponents’ every move, even in indistinct situations.

The BenQ Game Mode Loader online platform complements the XL2420T and XL2420TX, storing the gaming presets used by pro gamers and gaming legends HeatoN and SpawN. Users can install these exclusive presets and save them onto the S Switch for quick access. More presets, fine-tuned by Potti, fisker, ahl, and the acclaimed StarTale StarCraft II pro team, will soon be released on Gaming.BenQ.com to keep users on top of their game.

The XL2420T is also a great choice for extreme entertainment. It is certified as NVIDIA(R) 3D Vision(TM) 2 ready, providing gamers with full HD 3D gaming and entertainment experiences like never before. For more vivid viewing, it also comes with the NVIDIA 3D LightBoost(TM) technology for up to twice the original screen brightness. The XL2420TX is embedded with a 3D IR emitter and comes with an NVIDIA(R) 3D Vision(TM) 2 Glasses Kit for a truly immersive 3D experience with no hassles.

The BenQ XL2420T and XL2420TX are available now at MSRPs of $549 and $649, respectively, and will be on display at the 2012 International CES at the BenQ Hilton Suite 28-105. More information about the XL Series is available at http://www.benq.com/product/monitor/xl2420t.

SENSIO Nominated as Finalist for TV Innovation Awards

IMS Research has recognized SENSIO(R) Autodetect V2.0 as a top technology in the 3DTV field; winners to be announced at the 2012 International CES

MONTREAL — Jan. 5, 2012 — SENSIO Technologies Inc. (SENSIO) (TSX.V: SIO) is proud to announce that the company has been nominated as finalist in the 3DTV category of the TV Innovation Awards presented by IMS Research (http://www.imsconferences.com/index.php/tvawards2012), for its SENSIO(R) Autodetect V2.0 technology. Winners will be announced at the IMS Research Cocktail Party, held on Jan. 9 at the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino during the 2012 International CES in Las Vegas.

“As the TV industry evolves to a true on-demand experience, with users able to access extensive libraries of content to be viewed at a time and place and on the device of their choosing, many new challenges and opportunities are presented,” said IMS Research President Ian Weightman. “The goal of the TV Innovation Awards is to recognize the most forward-thinking companies who are creating products and services that are driving this new TV paradigm.”

“SENSIO(R) Autodetect is the only commercially available technology to provide automatic format detection for all of the most popular stereoscopic 3D formats, and we’re pleased that this unique capability has been recognized by the IMS Research judging panel,” said Nicholas Routhier, SENSIO President and CEO. “The TV Innovation Awards have honoured some of the industry’s best-known companies, and we are pleased that SENSIO is considered among today’s leaders in bringing critical 3D technology to market and a richer viewing experience to consumers.”

SENSIO(R) Autodetect was designed to improve the stereoscopic 3D experience of the end user, taking the technical headache out of enjoying the medium. The technology automatically detects, with superior reliability, all the most commonly used frame-compatible stereo-3D video formats (SENSIO(R) Hi-Fi 3D, Side-by-Side, Top-and-Bottom) or a 2D signal. Integrating smoothly into consumer electronics (CE) manufacturers’ products and operating seamlessly with the SENSIO(R) 3D Decoder, SENSIO(R) Autodetect eliminates issues associated with configuration of input and output formats.

SENSIO(R) Autodetect can distinguish the nature of content provided by many platforms, including video-on-demand (VOD), pay-per-view (PPV), programmed broadcasts, IP streaming and downloads, packaged media, and stereoscopic 3D (S3D) console games. Integrated into CE equipment capable of decoding 3D signals, it functions perfectly with legacy equipment (HDMI 1.3 and lower) because it is not reliant on flags or metadata. With this technology, consumers can be sure that the proper image conversion is applied to the detected signal and that the 2D/3D format always matches the content. Viewers don’t need to know in advance which format they will be watching, and there is no need to navigate through on-screen menus to select the appropriate output.
