Biamp Systems Named Finalist in Two Categories for the Inaugural 2014 InstallAwards

AudiaFLEX NREL implementation is shortlisted in the corporate category, while installation at Purdue University earns a spot in the education category

BEAVERTON, Oregon — April 9, 2014 — Biamp Systems, a leading provider of innovative, networked media systems, today announced that the company has been selected as a finalist in two categories for Installation magazine’s inaugural InstallAwards. The Biamp(R) AudiaFLEX digital audio system — installed in the Energy Systems Integration Facility (ESIF) at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Colorado — is a finalist for the Star Product Award in the Corporate/Industrial category. In the Education category, the installation at Purdue University’s France A. Cordova Recreational Sports Center (CoRec) — which includes an expansive Biamp AudiaFLEX system — is a finalist for the Best Project Award.

Biamp’s AudiaFLEX allows users to select any configuration of input (IP-2) and output (OP-2e) pairs for the ultimate in flexibility. Providing unprecedented control, the entire audio network can be controlled over Ethernet or via the most popular control platforms. With AudiaFLEX, multi-channel audio can be seamlessly distributed among multiple units using cost-effective Cat-5 cable. Each AudiaFLEX unit can provide up to 24 channels of I/O with Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC) available as a separate input module.

At the NREL, AudiaFLEX was utilized as part of an Audia(R)/Nexia(R) audio solution combination in the newly built ESIF, which required a system that could meet the diverse needs of eight distinct workspaces. AudiaFLEX was chosen for the project due to its flexibility and modular DSP architecture. At Purdue University, AudiaFLEX was a key component in the remodel of CoRec facility. To create one large DSP audio network across the entire 355,000-square-foot facility, 18 AudiaFLEX units were installed, with many pulling double duty — operating as room audio processors as well as performing paging and background music functions.

“At Biamp, we develop and manufacture audio solutions that support the world’s most sophisticated installations. Every person at Biamp is dedicated in one way or another to making sure our products embody excellence in quality, reliability, and support,” said Biamp Systems President and CEO, Steve Metzger. “We are honored to be recognized for these two InstallAwards.”

The 2014 InstallAwards were introduced to coincide with Installation magazine’s fifteenth year of publication. The awards recognize achievement and excellence across the full spectrum of installation projects in a wide variety of applications. Winners will be announced in a ceremony at the Hilton London Wembley hotel on June 12.

Riedel’s New MediorNet MetroN Core Router Boosts Bandwidth and Flexibility in MediorNet Installations

WUPPERTAL, Germany — April 8, 2014 — Riedel Communications, provider of pioneering real-time video, audio, data, and communications networks, today announced that it has expanded its MediorNet family of real-time networks with the addition of the 2-RU large-scale MediorNet MetroN core router. In enabling Riedel’s acclaimed networked approach to signal distribution and routing, the new MediorNet MetroN fiber router provides a massive 640 GB real-time signal-routing capacity (64x10G ports).

“The MediorNet MetroN core router enables users to configure robust and highly redundant MediorNet installations in a variety of demanding applications without any concern for bandwidth limitations,” said Christian Bockskopf, marketing and communications manager for Riedel Communications. “By adding this fiber router to new or existing MediorNet systems, users can fully leverage the flexibility of our real-time networks even when working with large volumes of high-bandwidth signals.”

Riedel’s MediorNet system combines signal transport, routing, signal processing, and conversion into one integrated real-time network solution. With this network for video, audio, data, and communications, users can send any incoming signal to any output — or even to multiple outputs — with just a mouse click or, even more conveniently, by using a router control system. Eliminating the need for re-wiring when production setups change, MediorNet increases the flexibility of any installation while significantly reducing cabling and setup time. Integrated broadcast-quality processing and conversion features reduce or eliminate the need for external devices, in turn helping users to realize significant savings in infrastructure investment.

The addition of the MetroN core router dramatically increases the bandwidth available across MediorNet networks. It is the first solution in the MediorNet family where the connection is realized by means of 10G links. Up to six HD-SDI signals can be transmitted over one 10G connection. Typical applications for the router include the connection of MediorNet subnets, studio backbones, routing within a 3G-SDI studio infrastructure, and supporting networked OB vans.

Further information about Riedel and the company’s products is available at www.riedel.net.

Riedel Unveils WAN-Capable MediorNet Solution

WUPPERTAL, Germany — April 8, 2014 — Riedel Communications, provider of pioneering real-time video, audio, data, and communications networks, today announced the release of the company’s first wide-area network (WAN)-supported solution: the acclaimed MediorNet real-time network with WAN capabilities. Riedel has enhanced its flagship solution to give broadcasters and other content producers greater flexibility in live production environments.

“The addition of our unique WAN transmission technology to the well-established MediorNet solution gives users an even greater degree of versatility in distributing live A/V content,” said Christian Bockskopf, marketing and communications manager for Riedel Communications. “By transmitting video and audio signals in a WAN environment, customers can connect remote MediorNet Systems globally in an easy and intelligent way.”

The video streaming technology incorporated into the MediorNet solution empowers users to achieve greater mobility in live production environments, including studios, arenas and other live event facilities, and linked OB van setups. The WAN capabilities integrated into the real-time media network also reduce the complexity of live broadcasting and assure straightforward signal distribution with maximum independence.

Riedel’s MediorNet system combines signal transport, routing, signal processing, and conversion into one integrated real-time network solution, now with WAN capabilities. With this network for video, audio, data, and communications, users can send any incoming signal to any output — or even to multiple outputs — with just a mouse-click or, even more conveniently, by using a router control system. Supporting forward error correction (FEC), retransmission management (RTM), and dynamic bit rate management (DBRM), the Code One Transport Protocol (COTP) used by MediorNet H.264 encoders and decoders ensures that the public Internet can be used effectively for point-to-point transmission of professional audio and video.

Using Riedel Communications’ MediorWorks software, users can not only configure the WAN interface, but also handle a WAN signal connection as a trunk link and split a system in various subnets. Additional valuable functions available with the WAN-capable MediorNet system are JPEG2000 encoding and decoding for SDI and DVI I/O, as well as H.264 encoding and decoding for SDI. Two variations of the H.264 encoder and one of the JPEG2000 encoder allow users to select the processing capabilities that best suit their budgetary and operational requirements.

Cinnafilm and Wohler Set Standard for File-Based Media Retiming With Release of Tachyon Wormhole

LAS VEGAS — April 7, 2014 — Cinnafilm(R) and Wohler Technologies today announced the release of Cinnafilm’s Tachyon(R) Wormhole(TM), an automated file-based retiming solution that enables up to a plus or minus 10 percent runtime adjustment while preserving not only video and audio quality, but also closed caption integrity. Based on Cinnafilm’s popular Tachyon Standards Transcoding(TM) plug-in for the Wohler RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform(TM), Tachyon Wormhole gives time back to broadcasters, allowing them to realize new revenue opportunities without materially altering the viewer’s experience of their media assets.

“Tachyon Wormhole allows users to eliminate nearly $500,000 worth of specialized hardware with a single server equipped with two graphics cards, at a price that is a fraction of the cost of the baseband hardware it is replacing,” said Ernie Sanchez, chief operations officer of Cinnafilm. “Never before has a single commodity-hardware-based solution replaced so many pieces of dedicated SDI hardware.”

Wohler’s RadiantGrid software platform serves as the processing framework for the Tachyon Wormhole appliance. Equipped with powerful NVIDIA Tesla GPUs, the technology also facilitates retiming of closed captioning data and integration of audio retiming into the Cinnafilm Tachyon Wormhole video processing workflow. The turnkey Tachyon Wormhole system can process up to two HD streams in real time, handles unlimited channels of audio, and resynchronizes CEA-608 and -708 and SMPTE 436M and 360M caption data. Users simply select their target run time by choosing a specific length or by entering a percentage adjustment.

In addition to enabling automated retiming, Tachyon Wormhole also offers all of the features/functionality of the award-winning Tachyon Standards Transcoding Appliance. The features and functionality include standards conversion, high-quality deinterlacing, superlative resolution conversion, inverse telecine, broken cadence removal/correction, and options such as audio loudness correction, color legalization, and watermarking.

“Transcoding is a cost of doing business for broadcasters and cable providers, and Tachyon Wormhole transforms that cost of doing business into an immediate source of revenue generation,” added Craig Newbury, vice president sales for Wohler’s RadiantGrid business line. “In leveraging the power of the RadiantGrid platform, the ROI for Tachyon Wormhole is incredibly fast, and in some installations the appliance will pay for itself in its first week of operation.”

Tachyon Wormhole is available for purchase from Cinnafilm and its resellers. More information about Cinnafilm and Tachyon Wormhole is available at http://cinnafilm.com/tachyon/tachyon-wormhole/.

Information about Wohler and the company’s products is available at www.wohler.com.

Forscene Integrates With Sony Wireless Camera Adapter to Reduce Lag Time Between Shoot and Edit

First Use of Integrated Workflow by Maverick TV on Show Commissioned by Channel 4

LONDON — April 7, 2014 — Forbidden Technologies plc (AIM:FBT), the AIM-quoted owner and developer of the market-leading cloud video platform Forscene, announced today that it has created a professional workflow using Sony’s new CBK-WA100 wireless adapter for Sony cameras.

Forbidden worked together with Sony to create a new integrated workflow and to provide a professional broadcast test case. This new workflow allows production crews to upload content directly from the Sony camera over a wireless LAN to the Forscene cloud, eliminating any delay between the shoot and post-production. Forbidden client Maverick TV is the first to use this new Forscene workflow integrated with Sony’s wireless adapter on a programme commissioned by Channel 4.

This integration is ideal for remote video production, especially reality-based, unscripted, or high-shoot-rate long-form programs. Having access to footage as it is being shot means that production teams can give feedback and direction to the location crew during the shoot, rather than having to wait for media to be uploaded at the end of the day or sent on drives from the location to the production centre.

“Production teams are becoming more and more dispersed, with remote crews needing to submit content to centralized post facilities from all over the world. The ability to get the content from the camera to the edit point quickly and efficiently is an important part of video production, and Forscene lends itself perfectly to such a workflow,” said Greg Hirst, business development director, Forbidden Technologies plc. “Forbidden has a reputation for being able to integrate easily and has established cloud-based post-production clients. The deployment at Maverick is a demonstrable use case for Sony’s wireless adapter in a cloud post environment, and the fact that Maverick is using it on a real-world production further proves the viability of the workflow.”

Crew in the field control the camera adapter from a smartphone or tablet, selecting content to upload directly from the camera to the Forscene cloud. Forscene reads the proxy in XAVC(TM) format, transcodes it and loads it into the user’s Forscene account. The material is immediately available in Forscene for production teams to review, log, edit, and give feedback to the on-location crew. At the same time, directors in the field can log in to their Forscene accounts to view and begin putting rough cuts together from anywhere with an Internet connection. Clients then have the option of exporting an EDL to complete post and relink with the high-resolution material on their local storage or finishing in Forscene and publishing directly to distribution channels from high-resolution media stored in the Forscene cloud.

Maverick, part of production giant all3media and a long-time Forbidden client, is using the Sony wireless adapter and Forscene integrated workflow on an observational documentary that is currently in production for Channel 4.

Forbidden and Sony are demonstrating the new integrated workflow for long-form production at the 2014 NAB Show at the Sony booth C11001. In addition, at the Forbidden booth SL5305, Forbidden will demonstrate the new integrated workflow for Web distribution — including native content ingest to Forscene via the Sony adapter and post-production and publishing from Forscene.
