Riedel Gear Supports Live Productions From Red Bull eSports Studio for Streaming to Millions

WUPPERTAL, Germany — Dec. 2, 2014 — Riedel Communications, provider of pioneering real-time video, audio, data, and communications networks, today announced that its MediorNet real-time network, RockNet audio system, and Artist digital matrix intercom system are being used in the Red Bull eSports studio at Red Bull Media House’s North American Headquarters in Santa Monica, California. The Riedel gear is enabling the production of events, as well as the live streams watched by millions of fans.

“Riedel products have continually provided Red Bull Media House with the flexibility, performance, and audio and video quality we require for the production of premium sports events and live broadcasts, and they have proved to be a perfect fit for Red Bull eSports studio,” said Scott Gillies, director of production & technology, at Red Bull Media House North America. “The robust functionality of both the MediorNet and Artist systems actually simplifies production while enabling us to put on a sophisticated and exciting show for the millions of fans tuning in from all around the world.”

For example, one eSports broadcast format that’s produced out of the Red Bull eSports studio pits two video gaming teams of five players against one another. As they play, MediorNet Modular frames take in a total of 20 HDMI POV video signals from the gaming consoles, convert them into HD-SDI, and carry them to the control room. The POV cameras focus on the faces and hands of all 10 players, with additional HD-SDI cameras positioned on the game commentators. These inputs are combined with the primary gameplay feeds to produce a complete eSports broadcast. An additional MediorNet Compact Frame is used for complementary shots from other parts of the competition.

Additionally, each player in this example wears a headset that provides game audio and a link to other team members. The Artist system supports these communications, as well as the intercom and on-air audio signals of the commentators. Because the Artist system works with 48-kHz digital audio, it is also being used to create a downmix of game audio for each team, as well as for the audio mixing console. Combining individual game audio with the team communications, the Artist creates 10 individual mixes for each of the 10 players. A single four-core fiber cable, equipped with OpticalCON QUAD connectors, handles all signals.

Within the control room, the MediorNet system acts as a pre-switcher, dynamically feeding eight signals to the video switcher, and also provides feeds to the edit bay, two SSD recording units, and to a monitor wall comprising two displays with 16-window split views. The MediorNet also serves as an audio de-embedder, in turn feeding audio to the audio mixing desk. The resulting audio and video mix is sent to two encoders for streaming via the Internet.

“Once again, Red Bull turned to Riedel to help further their innovation in the field of eSports, and we’re proud to continue to play a role in this space,” said Sascha Kneider, head of technical services, North America, for Riedel. “This installation is a textbook example of a system that integrates the three main product lines from Riedel. By using MediorNet as the backbone for video, RockNet for audio, and Artist intercom for communications, we can create a lot of synergies. The benefits of this approach are obvious: the customer does not have to buy three different systems that may or may not work well together, every signal is available at every node in the system, and changes are just a matter of a mouse click.”

Daimler Uses Riedel Gear to Introduce Mercedes-Benz ‘Future Truck 2025,’ the First Autonomously Driven Truck

WUPPERTAL, Germany — Nov. 20, 2014 — Riedel Communications, provider of pioneering real-time video, audio, data, and communications networks, today announced that Daimler deployed Riedel equipment to provide press and other guests with their first demonstration of the Mercedes-Benz “Future Truck 2025,” the world’s first truck capable of driving autonomously. System integrator XL Video GmbH supplied the Riedel MediorNet Modular real-time media network, Artist digital matrix intercom system, and pure fiber cable used for video and audio transport during the event, staged by creative agency [mu:d] GmbH on a new piece of autobahn.

“In introducing a major achievement for Daimler, we wanted to be certain that guests enjoyed the best possible look at the ‘Future Truck 2025,’” said Tobias Nickels, video project manager, at [mu:d] GmbH. “The quality of the signals delivered over the Riedel network, as well as the flexibility of the network itself, gave us a powerful tool for showcasing the innovation and style of this new truck.”

During the Daimler event near Magdeburg, grandstands for guests were positioned along the roadway to provide a look at the unique Mercedes-Benz truck, which uses a “Highway Pilot” system to drive autonomously at speeds of up to 80 kilometers per hour. A large LED screen displayed live images from different areas of the road during the demonstration, as well as video from three on-board cameras. A wireless receiver site for the on-board camera systems was established near the control room. The Grass Valley LDX cameras used Riedel’s MN-GV-2 cards and local power to interface via fiber into the MediorNet Modular fiber ring, which supported audio and video signal transport.

Initially, two cameras were positioned at the main grandstand and another two at autobahn overpasses. The flexibility of Riedel’s fiber-based network made it easy for [mu:d] and XL Video GmbH to go back and install a third camera on one overpass without needing to run another two kilometers of cabling. The four nodes of the fiber ring were situated in the main control room, at the video wall, and at the two overpasses.

“Riedel equipment sets the standard for live event communications and signal transport, and the performance, versatility, and reliability of the company’s solutions were evident in the quality of the Daimler ‘Future Truck 2025′ event,” said Christian Heinzel, broadcast manager at XL Video GmbH. “We felt extremely comfortable recommending this equipment to [mu:d] and Daimler, and it proved worthy for the high-profile launch of what likely represents the long-haul vehicle of the future.”

SMPTE 2014 Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition Marks Greatest Attendance in Past Decade

HPA Pre-Conference SMPTE Symposium Addressed Creative Challenges; Main Conference Offered More Than 80 Technical Presentations and a Sold-Out Exhibition Hall

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — Nov. 19, 2014 — The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers(R) (SMPTE(R)), the worldwide leader in motion-imaging standards and education for the communications, media, entertainment, and technology industries, today announced that the SMPTE 2014 Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition (SMPTE 2014) concluded successfully with record-setting paid attendance. Through presentations, debates, panel discussions, and technology exhibitions, the three-day event brought attendees an array of expert perspectives on the technologies, formats, and standards on which the industry’s future is being built.

“SMPTE 2014 demonstrated why the Society’s technical conference and exhibition has become the premier annual event for motion-imaging and media technology, production, operations, and the allied arts and sciences,” said Pat Griffis, SMPTE education vice president. “New display and acquisition standards, distribution formats, business models, virtualization models, and ways of moving content over IP are coming to the forefront and having a real impact on the industry. By offering insight into these and related advances, SMPTE 2014 empowers businesses and individuals to take entertainment media to the next level.”

From Oct. 21-23, SMPTE 2014 hosted world-renowned technology thought leaders from motion picture studios, broadcast and distribution networks, production and postproduction communities, software companies, systems integrators, manufacturers, distribution providers, over-the-top providers, and others leading the evolving motion-imaging industry. SMPTE 2014 attracted approximately 2,000 attendees representing 31 countries: the U.K., Japan, Germany, Belgium, China, South Korea, Hungary, and France, as well as the U.S. and Canada. Paid registrations were up 11 percent over 2013.

For the first time, the pre-conference SMPTE Symposium was hosted by the Hollywood Post Alliance (HPA). Held at the historic El Capitan Theatre, “Making Do With More” was a day-long event that included creative sessions with renowned filmmakers, cinematographers, visual effects artists, sound specialists, and colorists providing an in-depth discussion on the challenges they face and the expansive opportunities now open to them with new tools to support their vision. The Symposium also included a demonstration area supported by Canon, where Sony Electronics, FilmLight, Dolby Laboratories, Technology Made Simple, and Sundog Media Toolkit conducted demonstrations.

“The Symposium is an example of how HPA and SMPTE can add value to each other,” said Leon Silverman, HPA president. “The Symposium’s focus on creativity as it relates to technology complements SMPTE’s focus on technology and standards.”

The Women in the Technology Workspace Luncheon, produced by SMPTE and HPA Women in Post , featured Michelle Munson, CEO and co-founder of tech firm Aspera; Ron Bailey, vice president, human resources at Warner Bros. Entertainment; and Rob Kaufman, founder and CEO of Divorce Dialogue who specializes in the behavioral differences between men and women. The discussion centered on differences between women and men in the technology workplace and on how women can better position themselves for advancement.

In the SMTPE 2014 opening keynote, Chris Fetner, director of global content partners operations at Netflix, explained that the complicated task of empowering subscribers requires an increasingly higher quality of audio and video assets, more metadata, and localized artwork. In addition to reporting that Netflix was the first to market with the ultra-high-definition TV (UHDTV) streaming series “House of Cards,” Fetner also noted the importance of SMPTE’s Interoperable Master Format (IMF) standard, deeming it the cornerstone of Netflix expansion. The release of original miniseries “Marco Polo” in December 2014 will represent the first Netflix content delivered in the IMF 2+ extended format. Fetner’s keynote presentation is available, on-demand, to SMPTE members at www.smpte.org/smpte2014-netflix-keynote.

Mark A. Aitkin, vice president of advanced technology at Sinclair Broadcasting Group, delivered the Industry Luncheon keynote. Aitkin suggested that broadcasters missed an opportunity by not putting better support behind ATSC mobile television and called for a reinvention of broadcasting as a conveyor of uniquely wireless, unconnected bits to billions of devices. He also noted that the mobile-connected tablet is the consumption device of the future, stating that mobile video consumption will increase to account for two-thirds of all mobile data traffic by 2017.

SMPTE Hollywood Regional Governor, Paul Chapman and SMPTE Fellow, Jim DeFilippis served as program chairs for SMPTE 2014. Over the course of the event, more than 80 presentations were made through technical conference sessions that covered hot-button topics ranging from networked media, file-based workflows, cloud security, asset management, UHDTV, higher frame rate (HFR), and audio technology. This year’s technical papers were drawn from the U.K., Japan, Germany, India, Norway, China, and Canada, as well as the U.S. The sold-out exhibition hall featured displays and demonstrations from more than 80 leading technology and solution providers.

The inaugural SMPTE Student Film Showcase, hosted by Howard Lukk, a SMPTE standards director, was sponsored by Netflix and demonstrated how the technical and artistic talents of young filmmakers can result in meaningful content. The short films presented during the Showcase featured wide-ranging themes, from “Calibration Conundrum,” which discussed display matching and the human visual system, to “Light,” a beautifully photographed ballet sequence. All the movies were screened in the SMPTE-DCP (Digital Cinema Package) format, courtesy of Sundog Media Toolkit. SMPTE Program Committee member Corey Carbonara, professor of film and digital media in the Communication Studies Department at Baylor University, said that using the cloud platform to convert their films to SMPTE-DCP was a great learning experience for students.

At the Annual Membership Meeting, SMPTE 2014 celebrated the establishment of The Next Century Fund. SMPTE Executive Director Barbara Lange recognized the fund’s three cornerstone sponsors, The Walt Disney Company, Panasonic, and Dolby Laboratories, which brought the fund to the $1 million benchmark.

On the final night of SMPTE 2014, award-winning broadcast journalist Frank Mottek served as master of ceremonies for the Honors & Awards Ceremony, bestowing Honorary Memberships on Leonardo Chiariglione and George Lucas, with John Logie Baird receiving the SMPTE Honor Roll Award (posthumously). Ioan Allen received the Progress Medal. The complete list of honorees is available at: https://www.smpte.org/smpte2014/award-winners. The evening concluded with the third-annual SMPTE Jam.

The SMPTE 2015 Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition is scheduled for Oct. 26-29, 2015 at the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles.

Sonnet and Audinate Partner to Certify PCIe Sound Cards for Sonnet Thunderbolt 2-to-PCIe Expansion Systems

Audinate’s Dante PCIe-R, Focusrite’s RedNet PCIe Card, and Yamaha’s Dante Accelerator PCIe-R Soundcard Now Work Seamlessly With Sonnet’s Echo Express, xMac mini Server, and xMac Pro Server Solutions

IRVINE, Calif. — Nov. 18, 2014 — Sonnet Technologies today announced a collaboration with Audinate, inventor of the Dante(TM) family of digital media networking solutions, to certify compatibility of the Dante PCIe-R, a PCI Express(R) (PCIe(R)) sound card, with Sonnet’s full range of Thunderbolt(TM) 2-to-PCIe card expansion chassis. The Dante PCIe-R, also available as the Focusrite(R) RedNet(R) PCIe Card, and Yamaha’s Dante Accelerator PCIe-R Soundcard, is now seamlessly compatible with Sonnet’s full range of Echo(TM) Express products (excluding the Echo Express SEL due to size limits), as well as the Sonnet xMac(TM) mini Server and xMac Pro Server solutions.

“As cost-effective solutions for high-performance recording and audio processing workflows, Audinate’s Dante PCIe-R and Focusrite’s RedNet PCIe Card are very popular with our customers. As a result, they have been anxiously waiting for these cards to be certified as compatible with our Echo Express and xMac product lines,” said Greg LaPorte, vice president of sales and marketing, Sonnet Technologies. “Now, customers can build highly versatile and cost-effective audio workstations that enable the cards to be connected directly to any Mac computer with a Thunderbolt port - including the new Mac mini and the new Mac Pro.”

The Sonnet Echo Express product line enables any Mac(R) computer equipped with Thunderbolt 2 or Thunderbolt ports to interface with high-performance PCIe cards such as the Dante PCIe-R and Focusrite RedNet or the Yamaha Dante Accelerator PCIe-R Soundcard. The Echo Express family includes the Echo Express SE II two-slot desktop chassis and the Echo Express III-D (desktop) and III-R (rackmount) three-slot solutions. The xMac mini Server extends Thunderbolt 2-to-PCIe expansion to a Mac mini with a Thunderbolt port and provides a 1U rackmount enclosure for the computer. In similar fashion, the xMac Pro Server provides a 4U rackmount enclosure to securely mount a Mac Pro computer and connect three PCIe 2.0 slots via Thunderbolt 2.

Dante PCIe-R and Focusrite RedNet sound cards are designed to meet the needs of the most demanding audio professionals by enabling a simple, self-configuring, true plug-and-play digital audio network over standard IP and Ethernet networks at Gigabit speeds. The cards provide 256 channels of uncompressed digital audio with near-zero latency and glitch-free redundancy.

“Our partnership with Sonnet is an important link in our strategy to make the Dante PCIe-R available to sound professionals in the complete range of on-location as well as studio workflows,” said Gary Southwell, Audinate’s vice president of product management. “With Sonnet’s Thunderbolt 2-to-PCIe expansion systems, our customers will be able to take advantage of Thunderbolt’s lightning-fast connectivity by connecting the high-performance Dante PCIe-R to any computer lacking expansion slots.”

“Certification of Sonnet’s wide array of Thunderbolt 2-to-PCIe expansion systems with our RedNet PCIe Card means our customers now have more ways than ever to easily integrate RedNet Ethernet audio interfaces into their workflows,” said Ted White, Focusrite RedNet product specialist. “With Sonnet’s rackmount and desktop expansion solutions at users’ disposal, the lack of internal expansion card slots in a computer no longer matters. Users can use any modern computer with a Thunderbolt port instead.”
