DNF Controls Announces New On-Set Playback Control Application for Live Productions

Application Built on DNF’s Flex Control Network(R) Eliminates Need for TD Assistance in Handling On-Set Displays

SYLMAR, Calif. — Jan. 3, 2012 — DNF Controls today announced the On-Set Playback Control Application built on the Flex Control Network(R), DNF’s modular platform of professional IP-based machine controllers that solve all manner of operational control problems and set a new standard of excellence for operational efficiency and profitability. The On-Set Playback Control Application is a specific combination of Flex Control equipment that allows a single technical director (TD) to operate simultaneous and timed events for on-set displays and transitions at the touch of a button, without the need for a back-up TD or complex custom programming. The new application was developed specifically for managing on-set displays during live productions — especially non-linear productions or breaking news — in which a second “TD assist” might be required and/or talent interacts with video and graphics.

The On-Set Playback Control Application eliminates the need for a second operator and additional equipment, while at the same time increasing production value. The application provides simple, push-button random access to clips and graphics for non-scripted events while controlling up to 24 different machines and allowing talent to interact with sophisticated on-set transitions.

“The advent of HD and flat-panel displays has brought more images to the set, adding another layer of complexity to the playout a technical director has to manage,” said Dan Fogel, CTO of DNF Controls. “This application is highly targeted at efficient workflow and relieving the burden on the TD so that quality remains high consistently without the expense of extra personnel. Now a single TD can control everything the audience will see in real time without imposing impossible-to-synchronize button pushes.”

The On-Set Playback Control Application consists of a CP20 event-based, cue-marking, VTR-style control panel and up to six DC20 device controllers, depending on the number of channels or devices to be controlled. The result is an integrated, standalone tactile, sophisticated, cost-effective backup and manual playout control system always at hand.

The On-Set Playback Control Application is based on the Flex Control Network, DNF’s flagship technology that encompasses DNF’s more than 20 years of experience providing “must work,” mission-critical control systems for broadcast and production operations. The Flex Control platform consists of device controllers with 25 drivers and interface solutions that combine with a full range of control panels to create applications for solving even the most complex control problems while using existing IP infrastructure as the backbone. With its tactile control surfaces, browser-based interfaces for ease of use and deployment, and simple push-button operation using “event to action” logic for sophisticated, automated control, Flex Control delivers unparalleled centralized and distributed control over machinery and workflows.

Panamax/Furman Updates MyBlueBOLT.com Certification, Training, and Partnership Resources

PETALUMA, Calif. — Dec. 15, 2011 — Panamax/Furman today announced that MyBlueBOLT.com has received an update to enhance the user’s experience with an improved certification process and training resources. Users of the BlueBOLT(R) energy management and control platform will appreciate such new additions as the “Maximizing BlueBOLT” video orientation, which helps new or existing users get the most out of their BlueBOLT experience and details value-added features such as auto-reboot, “connection lost” notifications, and an assisted setup of budget alerts in the energy management section.

An update for future BlueBOLT certified dealers, or current certified dealers looking to bring new personnel up to speed, is the completely new certification training video and simplified certification portal. The new online training video includes marked test questions, as well as an extended look at the BlueBOLT online interface. Dealers, installers, and contractors can obtain their BlueBOLT certification through this enhanced online training course via almost any Internet-connected tablet, computer, or mobile phone.

Automation and control-centric dealers or programmers will appreciate MyBlueBOLT.com’s new dedicated control partners’ page. This page acts as a reference for anyone checking the status of an automation platform driver or control module for their respective BlueBOLT or control-friendly power management hardware. These drivers, designed by third parties or specific Panamax/Furman control partners, provide an alternate method of power-related control through local IP or RS-232, depending on hardware. In most cases, programmers can leave BlueBOLT control and communication intact, allowing for simultaneous local automation, as well as cloud-based BlueBOLT control. This flexibility makes for a highly configurable automation environment and a better experience for the customer.

Makito(TM) Encoder
The Makito(TM) encoder is the first and only full-featured, high-performance compact encoder to combine the efficiencies of H.264 video compression and full HD video quality in a very small form factor — all at a very competitive price point. And now, the Makito supports constant bit rate (CBR) encoding to assure transport and system-wide compatibilities and, optionally, real-time metadata capabilities. The Makito provides H.264 encoding at up to 1080p60 with the lowest available end-to-end latencies.

KulaByte(TM) Encoder
Haivision will display its newly acquired KulaByte(TM) software encoder, which allows Kulabyte users to deliver live content to multiple sites easily and reliably. Kulabyte features best-in-class adaptive player technology that enables dynamic, real-time updates for dependable online video delivery to desktop or mobile devices. Completely software-based, the KulaByte encoder provides the most efficient use of uplink bandwidth due to extremely high quality-to-bit rate performance and tight bit rate control. With its simple user interface and operation, anyone from trained employees to volunteer teams can reliably deliver the desired results time after time.

KulaByte(TM) Live Cloud Transcoder
Haivision will also show off its KulaByte(TM) live cloud transcoding solution, capable of transforming live video source streams into all of the many formats and data rates required to distribute live video via the Internet. The KulaByte live cloud transcoder delivers live transcoded source video streams to every screen, regardless of device, player, screen size, or bandwidth. The transcoder provides high-quality, reliable, consistent output streams to the full range of playback devices, even when streaming from challenging low-bandwidth environments. Preparing the multiple renditions needed for all of these devices and bit rates previously required additional investment in on-site encoding hardware, bandwidth, and infrastructure. KulaByte eliminates this wasteful per-event overspending and complexity in favor of a flexible, comprehensive cloud-based live streaming platform.

Furnace(TM) 6.0 Including MultiStream(TM) Recording and Advanced Publishing
The highly acclaimed Furnace(TM) IP video system includes advanced recording and publishing features to enable clients to capture and distribute synchronized multistream video content. The VF Recorder module now supports recording and review of up to four simultaneous video streams associated with a combined video asset. During the recording, HotMarks(TM) (real-time metadata) can be applied to all streams either through the user interface or as triggered by third-party control systems. HotMarks enable viewers to search for and jump to specific tagged events quickly. The VF Publisher module establishes automated ingest and publishing of content. After a record process, users can instantly assign content to specific groups, make the content available within the Web portal, email links to specific users or groups, or deposit the content into third-party systems for further editing.

Viper MultiStream(TM) IP Video Streamer/Recorder
Haivision will also feature the Viper, a compact integrated appliance for capturing, streaming, reviewing, distributing, and publishing multistream H.264 content. The Viper can be used as a stand-alone device to bring powerful recording, streaming, and VoD capabilities directly from event centers by capturing and distributing multiple HD video sources or HD video and computer display sources simultaneously. The Viper supports record/review/publish and live-streaming applications. The Viper can also be integrated as a remote contributor to Haivision’s Furnace(TM) IP video system, enabling a distributed recording architecture without relying on central network video recording capacity to accommodate every user.

Torpedo(TM) DVB-to-IP Gateways
Torpedo(TM) allows enterprises to get digital broadcast transmission onto their IP networks without the need for re-encoding the video. Digital satellite (DVB-S/S2) and digital terrestrial (DVB-T/T2) broadcasts contain audio/video programming using industry-standard compression (MPEG-2 or H.264) contained within MPEG-2 transport streams. The Torpedo gateway tunes to particular channels, as delivered over RF by the DVB antennas or satellite dishes, extracts and filters the MPEG transport stream packets, and delivers the program content over IP networks, thereby eliminating the need to re-encode. A single Torpedo can support up to 15 content channels, each rebroadcast as unicast or multicast IP video data streams. Torpedo can be used as a stand-alone solution, or it can be integrated as part of Haivision’s Furnace(TM) IP video system.
