Anton/Bauer Debuts Gold Mount for New Canon EOS C300 at the 2012 NAB Show

LAS VEGAS, APRIL 16, 2012—Anton/Bauer, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company, and a premier global provider of batteries, chargers, lighting and other mobile power systems for the professional broadcast, video and film industries, will debut its QRC-CA940 Gold Mount solution for the new Canon EOS C300 digital cinema camera at the 2012 NAB Show (Booth C7032). This latest introduction furthers the company’s commitment to developing power solutions for the industry’s top cameras.

The Canon EOS C300 camera was designed specifically to meet the demanding needs of today’s cinema industry and television production professionals. Featuring a unique Super 35mm-sized Canon CMOS sensor, revolutionary Canon DIGIC DV III image processor and 50 Mbps 4:2:2 codec, the EOS C300 provides outstanding cinema-quality movie capture in a modular and portable system. To help streamline battery management for Canon EOS C300 users, Anton/Bauer has simultaneously introduced the QRC-CA940, a Gold Mount that provides 7.2V power to the camera via a DC connector and 14.4V on (3) PowerTap connectors.

“While the QRC-CA940 operates similar to our other Gold Mounts, this particular mount will have three PowerTap outputs where typically we only have one,” says Shin Minowa, vice president of marketing and business development. “It is our goal to continually offer innovative power solutions to the NAB community and we are looking forward to sharing the QRC-CA940 this year. The more accessories we can power in addition to the camera, the better. Understanding our customers’ professional applications and goals, this Gold Mount was designed so that users will not have to monitor multiple batteries, therefore reducing downtime in the field, as well as the number of chargers needing to be transported.”

The QRC-CA940 was designed to be compatible with the company’s mounting bracket for 15mm or 19mm rod systems, the MATRIX Cheese Plate, or adapted to third-party support systems (15mm or 19mm clamp kits sold separately).

Qualis Audio Debuts New Measurement Capabilities for Sentinel Surround Sound Audio Monitor at the 2012 NAB Show

Dialog Balance Measurement, Downmix Loudness Measurement Now Available

LAS VEGAS, APRIL 16 2012 — Qualis Audio, a leading developer of professional audio measurement and monitoring instruments, with an emphasis on 5.1 surround sound, loudness and QoE assessment, will introduce at the 2012 NAB Show (Booth C3741) the latest firmware v1.24 for the Sentinel Surround Sound Audio Monitor. The new firmware, available now and free for existing customers, offers several enhancements and optimizations, including a unique dialog balance measurement and downmix loudness measurement. This is the first time both features, which are the subject of patent applications, are available.

Dialog Balance Measurement
With this new feature, the Sentinel provides continuous real-time measurement of dialog loudness against the loudness of the remaining program content, providing a simple display of dialog balance, a measure indicative of intelligibility. This measurement greatly eases the job of mix engineers working on live applications such as sporting events, award ceremonies and game shows. An optional alarm may be enabled to alert the engineer when the dialog loudness is insufficient to insure viewers understand what’s being said.

Downmix Loudness Measurement
This new feature enables the Sentinel to simultaneously measure and display the loudness of a surround sound program and the loudness of the same material when downmixed to stereo. An optional alarm may be enabled to alert the engineer if the difference between these loudness measurements exceeds user-set limits.

BS.1770-1 Support, Improved Report Automation
This new firmware enables the Sentinel to measure loudness according to either the BS.1770-1 or BS.1770-2 standards and includes an enhanced version of the company’s loudness report automation, which was first introduced in last year’s v1.22 firmware. This server software automatically creates reports of loudness conformance with CALM Act requirements. Reports can also include results of other audio QoE measurements. Completely automated, the software combines as-run logs with Sentinel measurements, generating daily reports that are emailed to appropriate personnel.

“We are thrilled to share our software upgrades for the Sentinel with the NAB community,” says Doug Ordon, director of U.S. sales, Qualis Audio. “The technology behind our dialog balance and downmix differential measurements has never existed before. These are innovations that allow for the Sentinel to evolve with loudness control rules and regulations. Not only do we provide innovative solutions for the broadcast industry, but we are going far beyond what’s available from anyone else. Plus, after the initial investment in the Sentinel, customers reap the rewards of software upgrades at no additional cost to them.”

The Sentinel Surround Sound Audio Monitor measures, monitors and logs loudness and virtually every other parameter necessary to ensure optimum audio reaches broadcast viewers. Its measurement and logging verify

and document CALM Act compliance, conforming fully to all ITU BS1770, ATSC, FCC and EBU
requirements. Any deviation outside of the allowed range automatically generates alarms to the user’s choice of SNMP, email or GPO. The Sentinel also measures, displays, logs and alarms all pertinent audio parameters, such as the new downmix loudness capability described above, downmix compatibility, hum, balance and other parameters required for quantifying audio quality.

The electronic equivalent of a human listener, the Sentinel operates unattended, eliminating continuous aural checks by skilled listeners. This unique ability significantly reduces personnel requirements and attendant costs while improving the consistency of audio monitoring.

Sound Devices Debuts PIX 260 Production Video Recorder at the 2012 NAB Show

LAS VEGAS, APRIL 16, 2012 — Sound Devices, experts in portable audio and video products for field production, introduces its new PIX 260 production audio/video recorder at the 2012 NAB Show (Booth C2546). Based on Sound Devices’ field-proven PIX 220 and PIX 240 recorders, the rack-mounted PIX 260 is a file-based video/audio recorder/player that seamlessly replaces tape-based video decks in production and post-production environments.

Using the Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD codecs, the PIX 260 records and plays files up to 220 Mbps in high-quality 10-bit 4:2:2 video as well as 32 tracks of 48 kHz audio. Files from the PIX 260 are ready for direct import into Avid and Final Cut editing environments, eliminating time-consuming transferring and transcoding. Files can also play out of the PIX 260 for realtime applications.

Continuing the company’s deep heritage in production sound, Sound Devices has infused the PIX 260 with 32-track record/playback capability. In addition to 16 channels of embedded SDI audio and eight channels of HDMI audio, the PIX 260 also accepts eight channels of line-level analog I/O and eight channels of AES digital audio. Using Dante, the PIX 260 can accept and transmit up to 32 channels of audio over Ethernet.

The PIX 260 has a built-in five-inch 800 x 480-pixel video display that allows users to view video and setup-menu selections. With its extensive control capabilities, the PIX 260 is a flexible video playback source that is compatible with Final Cut Pro 7, Final Cut Pro X and Avid sessions. The PIX 260 can be controlled by both external RS-422 and via Ethernet through the embedded Web server, allowing for machine transport control over Ethernet-based networks.

Up to four SATA drives can be connected to the PIX 260 simultaneously. All four drives can be recorded to simultaneously, for RAID-1 type redundancy and to eliminate the need for post-record copying when multiple copies are required.

The PIX 260 includes a built-in Ambient Clockit time-code generator/reader with genlock output for multi-camera and double-system sound applications. In addition to generating ultra-stable time-code, time-code can be read from the SDI stream, the HDMI stream or from an external source.

Like the PIX 220 and PIX 240, the PIX 260 includes a sophisticated scaler and frame rate converter. Regardless of the incoming signal, the PIX recorders can record the signal after up, down or cross-conversion at the same rate or a different rate. Hardware-based 3:2 pull-down removal is included as well.
PIX 260’s convenient 1/2-rack, 2U chassis dimension allows it to be easily integrated into any existing environment. It is powered by 10-27 VDC through its four-pin XLR connector.

Sound Devices, LLC designs and manufactures portable audio mixers, digital audio recorders, and digital video recorders and related equipment for feature film, episodic television, documentary, news-gathering, and acoustical test and measurement applications. The thirteen-year old company designs and manufactures from their Reedsburg, Wisconsin headquarters with additional offices in Madison, WI and Highland Park, IL.

DPA 4006A Reference Standard Mics Bring High Level of Sound Recording to de Doelen Concert Hall

ROTTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, APRIL 13, 2012 – Broadcast Facilities Nederland (BFN) has purchased two sets of factory-matched DPA Microphones 4006A omnidirectional microphones from the company’s Benelux distributor, Amptec. The omni mics have been selected to record sessions of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra at the 2,200-capacity Grand Hall of de Doelen in Rotterdam, which will be used for broadcast.

Broadcast Facilities Nederlands engineer, Rob Heerschop, with a DPA 4006A

BFN’s recording engineer, Rob Heerschop, first used the new mics for Mahler’s Fifth Symphony and was surprised by the clear and transparent sound they brought to the orchestral works at the complex.

“Broadcast Facilities Nederland and de Doelen own a permanent studio in the main hall, for which we knew we needed a small AB microphone and a wide AB microphone for basic recordings,” explains Heerschop. “The reason we chose DPA Microphones’ 4006A is that they are simply the best for the AB recording technique when it comes to natural sound, transparency and dynamics. With our setup, we are using the shortest possible path to the Millenia preamp above the ceiling to create the best sound without any loss. For complex productions, we can add our choice of a variety of other DPA microphones, such as the DPA 4015, 4011, 4003, 4028 and a pair of 4041s.”

“I am proud to have sold DPA Reference Standard microphones to de Doelen and Broadcast Facilities Nederland, who often have to work under extreme pressure and very complicated circumstances,” adds Martin Goosen, Amptec sales manager for DPA in the Netherlands. “It is very rewarding that they are so satisfied with the results.”

BFN’s music department is involved in many live radio and TV broadcasts and CD productions on location or in its concert halls and studios in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Hilversum.

ABOUT DPA:
DPA Microphones A/S is a leading manufacturer of high quality condenser microphones and microphone solutions for professional applications in studio, broadcast, theatre, video/film and sound reinforcement environments.

Bexel Helps Bring Broadcast Events into Focus with Multi-Million-Dollar Purchase of Panasonic P2 Camcorders, Monitors

Cameras and Monitors Will Help Support Upcoming Summer Events

LAS VEGAS, APRIL 16, 2012—Bexel (2012 NAB Show Booth C6833), a unit of the Vitec Group’s Services Division and a leading worldwide provider of broadcast services and solutions, has announced a multi-million-dollar commitment to Panasonic with the purchase of the company’s newest P2 AJ-HPX3100 cameras as well as HPM-200 P2 mobiles, 64GB P2 cards and hundreds of 17”, 15” and 9” monitors and peripheral gear. The purchase is part of Bexel’s ongoing efforts to support broadcasters during this summer’s larger sporting events, as well as other sports-related and reality television productions.

The new AJ-HPX3100 camcorder is a compact, lightweight 2/3-inch P2 HD shoulder-mount camcorder, ideal for scripted, documentary, nature, cinema and commercial programming production. Similar in size to the popular HPX370, it offers two P2 slots and records in multiple worldwide formats.

“This purchase of the Panasonic HD camera equipment is extremely timely, considering this new gear will immediately go into service in London,” says Tom Dickinson, chief technology officer, Bexel. “Our clients want a turnkey workflow for production, specifically sports coverage, which requires a fast turnaround. One of the reasons we added the HPX3100 to our inventory was that it has Wi-Fi built into it. This allows users the ability to stand next to the camera with a device such as a tablet and see the content on the camcorder. The user can select and highlight clips, significantly reducing turnaround time.” The gear will also be used by clients in need of equipment that can withstand the grueling production schedules of other televised productions, such as reality TV broadcasts.

“Video professionals know that Bexel is the go-to company for equipment needs because of their knowledge and expertise,” says Joseph Facchini, vice president of sales, Panasonic System Communications of North America. “We are delighted that Bexel has chosen Panasonic P2 HD cameras and master-quality recorders, as well as our production-tough monitors, to equip world broadcasters covering the games this summer.”

The master-quality HPX3100 offers new features, including 24-bit audio in AVC-Intra 100/50, wireless metadata input capability via wireless LAN and a high-quality proxy recording option. The HPX3100 is equipped with six advanced gamma settings, including Film-Rec 600% mode (made popular by the VariCam), film-like shutter controls and intuitive film camera-like operation. It also features a built-in reverse scan that allows unique setups such as mounting the camera upside down or usage of an ultra prime lens or an anamorphic lens adapter to create a 2.35:1 aspect image.

To compliment the new camcorders, Bexel has purchased nearly 200 monitors. The high-definition LCD monitors range in size from nine to 17 inches. Bexel has also added to its inventory a significant amount of peripheral equipment, including mobile HD recorders, E-Series readers and memory cards.

“Providing clients with what they need from soup to nuts is always a driving force behind Bexel’s purchases. This new equipment, combined with our existing HD inventory, provides our customers with some of the most up-to-date HD technology,” adds Dickinson. “It also helps them ease the stress of meeting demanding production deadlines.”

Clear-Com Introduces New CC-300 and CC-400 Headsets at the 2012 NAB Show

New Headsets Offer Better Comfort, Improved Sound Quality and Greater Flexibility

LAS VEGAS, APRIL 12, 2012 ─ Clear-Com, a global leader in critical voice communication systems, will exhibit at the 2012 NAB Show (Booth C8008) the latest additions to its line of professional headsets, the CC-300 and CC-400. The CC-300 and CC-400 offer extra comfort, better performance and more flexibility for audio professionals who are constantly using intercoms during the long hours of production. These headsets are compatible with Clear-Com’s wide range of wired and wireless intercoms.

Personalized for Comfortable Fit
Wearing headsets day in and day out while communicating with other team members over the intercom can easily and quickly exhaust broadcast operators. The new Clear-Com CC-300 single-ear headset and CC-400 double-ear headset were designed to reduce fatigue and accommodate individual preferences by offering a clear and comfortable audio experience.

The CC-300 and CC-400 headsets’ microphone booms can be rotated 300 degrees, allowing the microphone to be worn on the right or left side of the head. Users can also make the headsets larger or smaller by using the slide adjustments on either side of the headband. In addition, the enclosed headphones have very soft padding and a slight rotation to provide a better fit for users.

Balanced for High Performance
The CC-300 and CC-400 headsets are equipped with hyper-cardioid dynamic microphones and high ambient noise attenuation headphones that deliver balanced audio performance to the user. The acoustic isolation capability significantly reduces external background noise and with a clear audio profile, including up to 20 kHz frequency response, the new headsets are made for professionals who demand high quality sound.

Flexibility for Operational Convenience
The CC-300 and CC-400 headset microphones can be turned on and off by moving the microphone boom. Users need only to pull the boom gently downwards to turn on the microphone and push the boom gently upwards to turn it off, in effect giving the users a quick and simple mute to their intercom system.

Interchangeable cabling is another major benefit of the CC-300 and CC-400 headsets. Both headsets come with a standard four-pin female connector, but users can easily change the cable and connector at the base of the headset by using a Phillips screwdriver in order to accommodate different connector types. The same process can be used to repair and replace a damaged cable on the fly.

“Busy production staff members need a headset that they can slip on and immediately feel the difference in fit and performance,” says Stephen Sandford, Product Manager, Clear-Com. “The Clear-Com CC-300 and CC-400 deliver by providing long-lasting comfort and high-quality audio, and can be used in conjunction with virtually all of our intercom solutions.”

About Clear-Com
Clear-Com, an HME company, is a global provider in professional voice communications systems since 1968. We develop and market proven intercom technologies such as Analog & Digital Partyline, Digital Matrix, Wireless and Intercom-over-IP systems for critical communication applications in broadcast, performance venues, military, government and enterprise markets.
