Broadcast Pix Announces fX3D Real-Time 3D Graphics System

Billerica, Massachusetts – Broadcast Pix™ today introduced fX3D, a real-time 3D graphics system designed to build dynamic graphic content for live events, sports, broadcast news, or channel branding. Designed as a standalone graphics system for existing broadcast infrastructures or as an addition to Broadcast Pix Granite™ or Mica™ integrated production switchers, fX3D makes it easy to create and playout high-end graphics. fX3D will be available at the 2014 NAB Show (Booth SL6325), which runs April 7-10 in Las Vegas, Nev., and is one of several new products that will be demonstrated by Broadcast Pix.

The fX3D system includes three software modules that create a simplified end-to-end graphics workflow. fX3D Creator software provides an intuitive interface to design and create graphic content, complete with a built-in 3D modeler. Lights, shaders, movement, and materials on 3D objects can be controlled in real time and in resolution independent HD. fX3D API allows the system to be controlled through Broadcast Pix switchers, and also allows integration with third-party products, such as broadcast news systems.

fX3D Playout is a template-based rundown controller that brings completed graphics to air. Assets can be searched using a variety of parameters, including keywords and date. fX3D Playout also allows manual or automatic graphic content updates via external resources, including RSS feeds or XML files, and supports multi-resolution output.

“Many of our customers have expressed interest in a powerful but affordable high-end graphics system, and our answer is fX3D. From designing and creating graphics to updating information within those graphics and then taking those graphics to air, fX3D does it all,” explained Steve Ellis, general manager, Broadcast Pix. “It is a complete graphics solution, so you never need to leave the application to get results that rival what you see on national networks.”

The hardware behind fX3D is the real-time fX3D Engine, which provides the power to create and repurpose 3D graphics simultaneously. Housed in a 3 RU chassis, the Windows-based, single-channel system will also be available in a dual-channel configuration. Plus, a high efficiency broadcast model with dual power supplies and support for higher pixel counts will be available in May.

Cinemagic to Digitize National Chain with Christie Cinema Solutions

Cinemagic, a cinema chain focused on building cinemas in towns between 50 and 70 thousand inhabitants of Mexico, and Christie®, the dominant brand in the global digital cinema projection market, today announced the joint digitization of 70 screens currently operated by Cinemagic in Mexico.

Christie will supply an assortment of Christie Solaria® One+ and Christie CP2220 projectors to the Cinemagic complexes, facilitated by Scrabble Entertainment, an international deployment entity whose financing of DCI-compliant digital cinema projector conversions helps all manner of cinemas make the move to digital technology.

“With Christie supplying the highest quality of digital cinema equipment and technical support, Cinemagic will be able to offer to our audience the best quality in cinema projection in each of the cities we serve,” said Roberto Quintero, CEO, Cinemagic.

“Cinemagic is to be commended on its mission to bring cinema to the small communities without entertainment options in Mexico,” said Ernesto Armus, general manager for Christie Mexico. “We are honored to be part of its mission and are committed to supplying Cinemagic with the world’s leading digital projection hardware, software and services.”

Roberto Quintero said, “We are confident that with dedication, effort and together with our strategic partners, we will ensure the growth and consolidation of our project to successfully bring cinema to the small communities of our country.”

TNDV Lands New Facility as Tenth Anniversary Approaches

Mobile production specialist converts large, secure warehouse into creative business space

NASHVILLE, March 5, 2014TNDV celebrates ten years of business by securing a massive new facility in northeast Nashville that will double as a place of business and creativity. The secure, climate-controlled facility gives owner Nic Dugger and his growing team a space to maintain and upgrade trucks, host clients, plan upcoming projects and accommodate post-production work.

Dugger and his team re-designed the former armored truck warehouse from scratch, from concrete pours and office partitions to lighting, wiring and security systems. The 10,000 square foot space provides plenty of room to securely park and work on TNDV’s trucks, and includes a networked infrastructure with state-of-the-art AV technology to share data, audio and video across offices and conference rooms. The main board room is equipped with the latest HD playback and recording technology to evaluate and review projects with staff and clients, while UHDTV displays and fiber optic tie lines to the trucks enable real-time review of media still residing on video servers and ProTools.

While the technological gains are impressive, Dugger notes that the move was firmly rooted in square footage, with a need to better accommodate activity and growth.

“When we moved to our previous location six years ago, it was me and a truck,” he said. “Ten years into business we are at five trucks with seven full-time engineers and a crew of production freelancers. Bringing one truck into that facility meant we couldn’t prep for our next show effectively. Here, we can pull three trucks indoors at once to do maintenance, make upgrades and change infrastructure as needed. The last point is very important, as we do not force a fixed inventory on our clients. We are a la carte for each show, and constantly reconfigure our trucks. Now we have a spot to prepare for the many upcoming truck shoots we have, while taking advantage of our newest 4K production acquisition systems.”

The large space also provides plenty of room for post work. While not a post-production facility, TNDV frequently works with graphics, PowerPoint files and large video and audio files post-shoot. The large amount of space allows staff to do post work in a separate part of the facility, away from the daily business operations.

“We have one particular office that we set with extra power and conditioning, additional video, audio and fiber tie lines, and sound reinforcement,” said Dugger. “That way if we are cracking through some post-production on a loud concert we’re not disturbing the peace.”

This is just one example of how well-prepared the facility is to deal with media coming in and out, as well as moving files around on site. The design includes single-mode fiber tie lines throughout, with between four and eight Cat6 cables going to each office. This infrastructure supports anything from sending video feeds from one truck router to driving ProTools rigs on the audio truck — all while carrying traditional phone and internet data.

Dugger adds that the location gives his fleet quick access to interstates instead of having to slog through city traffic. Another interesting aside regarding location is its close proximity to the production site of the ABC TV show Nashville — which shoots at the warehouse immediately across the street.

“Unintentionally, we’re building a small production community in this northeast portion of Nashville,” he said. “We expect to be here for a long time, and I’m excited about identifying some key partners in the region that might need a space. We have plenty of room to set producers up with offices for long term projects. Essentially we want to build a ‘laborhood,’ where a group of complementary professionals can network, synergize and tap each other for resources, instead of having to live by Skype and conference calls to simply communicate.”

The new TNDV facility is located at 515 Brick Church Park Drive, Nashville, TN 37207.

ABOUT TNDV: Television

Christie to Demo Breakthrough 3D Cinema Technology For Premium Cinema Experiences with Latest ‘6-Primary’ 4K Laser Projector

Christie® today announced upcoming demonstrations of the world’s most advanced laser projection architecture and Dolby® 3D, to be held in the Christie Innovation Theaters throughout CinemaCon 2014 (Caesars Palace, March 24-27) and the National Association of Broadcasters NAB Show® (Las Vegas Convention Center, April 5-10). Christie DLP Cinema® laser projectors using 6-Primary (6P) color laser modules, earmarked for mass production in early 2015, will show how 3D light levels, image uniformity, viewing comfort, and a sense of immersion can be vastly improved, especially when combined with advanced separation technology like Dolby 3D, versus conventional 3D systems found in cinemas around the world today.

“Recent declines in domestic 3D movie attendance are a sign that the novelty is wearing off, with audiences less willing to pay a premium for what is all too often a mediocre experience. The lackluster quality of this experience results from a number of technical limitations with current 3D system architectures, the most serious one being restricted light levels that amount to only 10-30 percent of those levels achieved for 2D presentations,” said Don Shaw, senior director, Product Management, Christie Entertainment Solutions. “Simply put, the movies are too dark, leaving audiences struggling to discern critical details that make up the image in front of them.”

“Christie’s latest laser projection technology, using 6 specific primary colors rather than filtered or polarized broad-spectrum white light, brings dramatically improved 3D efficiency to projection systems, regardless of the size of screen in premium movie theaters,” added Shaw. “We believe that this is the future of 3D cinema projection, that it is right around the corner, and that it will be a key element in boosting 3D box office revenues around the world. Our CinemaCon and NAB Show demonstrations will be the first 6P laser events available to the broad cinema community, from filmmakers to exhibitors, and reaffirms Christie’s 80-year commitment to cinema innovation, rather than ‘moving beyond digital cinema’ as some other industry players have promised.”

At least twice as efficient as today’s best 3D systems, Christie’s 6P laser projectors generate a proprietary mix of photoptically-optimized light wavelengths for each eye directly from the source, in effect eliminating the need for a highly inefficient stage of filtering or polarizing the light as it leaves the projector. The Christie demos will use Dolby® 3D glasses specifically engineered to exactly match the 6 primary laser light wavelengths to yield nearly 90 percent light efficiency. “Their color separation based technique for 3D is well regarded as the gold standard among industry professionals, especially for its true color reproduction, compatibility with low-gain white screens, and superior crosstalk performance – only now it can be part of a system that is tremendously more light efficient,” said Shaw.

“Dolby 3D’s advanced color separation technology is ideally suited for next generation laser projectors,” said Doug Darrow, Senior Vice President, Cinema, Dolby Laboratories. “With extremely high light efficiency, nearly no crosstalk and crisp images with vibrant colors, we believe Dolby 3D combined with laser projection produces the best possible 3D viewing experience for audiences.”

“Having had the opportunity to witness an early 6P laser demo at Christie’s worldwide center for engineering, research and development in Canada, I can confidently state that this is an exciting and important innovation in 3D cinema,“ said Matt Cowan, Co-founder & Senior Technical Advisor at Entertainment Technology Consultants. “I look forward to further refinement of this technology and upcoming installation in premiere theaters around the world.”

Consistent with efforts so far in developing 3-Primary (3P) laser projectors, which Christie sees filling important needs in several, non-cinema industries, Christie laser projectors will provide industry-leading brightness (up to 72,000 Lumens per projector head), wider color gamut capabilities, higher contrast, and dramatically reduced maintenance requirements, resulting in a better experience for all applications. As part of its largest research and development program ever, Christie will continue to develop superior 6P and 3P laser projection solutions for all of its global customers.

Specific to the development of cinema laser projectors, Christie leads the industry in this area, having announced last year that it would supply and install the world’s first commercial laser projection solution for the Seattle Cinerama Theatre, and that it was the first to receive a US FDA approval of variance allowing the sale and installation of laser projectors in movie theaters and other high performance projection venues.

DiGiCo Sweeps the GRAMMY® Awards

ATK Audiotek deploys numerous SD Series consoles for “Music’s Biggest Night”

LOS ANGELES — Southern California-based live event sound, equipment rental and broadcast audio production specialist ATK Audiotek recently acquired a slew of DiGiCo digital consoles, immediately putting them to work on the 56th annual GRAMMY® Awards telecast in Los Angeles in late January. This is the third consecutive year that ATK has relied on DiGiCo consoles for the production of “Music’s Biggest Night,” with this year’s show marking the very first outing for the company’s latest purchases.

ATK, the audio production provider for the Recording Academy’s annual music celebration since the telecast permanently relocated to the Staples Center in downtown L.A. fourteen years ago, made the switch to DiGiCo consoles in 2012. This year, the console complement included an SD10 for Mikael Stewart, FOH production mixer and ATK’s vice president of special events, plus an SD7 for Ron Reaves, FOH music mixer, seated alongside Stewart.

“Everybody who comes through the GRAMMYs leaves happy, and all I use is the onboard processing,” says Reaves. “But my partner in crime at the GRAMMYs, Mikael Stewart, uses the Waves plugins quite extensively. He mixes all the dialog and the production elements, so he makes use of the DNS plugin on some of the podium micas.” Stewart, whose console was directly connected to a DiGiCo SoundGrid server, used the Waves Dialog Noise Suppression plugin to reduce the room regeneration coming back in to the microphones and also made use of the Waves C6 Multiband Compressor.

Tom Pesa, the A stage monitor engineer, and Michael Parker, monitor engineer for the B stage, each mixed on an SD7 with a redundant engine. This year, for the first time, an SD8-24 — supplied by Hi-Tech Audio for the occasion — was positioned backstage at A2 world, and that enabled an assistant engineer to more efficiently monitor signal distribution throughout the venue.

As in previous years, Parker and Pesa each accessed common head amps in the four SD-Racks positioned backstage. But this year, in another first, two SD-Racks were added in parallel in order to provide Reaves with discrete preamp control at FOH. “Those were running MADI to his console. Staying at 48 kHz, we got an entire rack down one MADI cable instead of two,” says Jeff Peterson, ATK’s system designer. A further four SD-Racks were dedicated to outputs. ATK’s recent purchase was comprised of six consoles — two SD10s, two SD7s and two SD5s — plus 14 SD-Racks.

ATK was not the only company utilizing DiGiCo equipment at the GRAMMY Awards show. Outside the venue, in the Music Mix Mobile (M3) Eclipse truck, which provides the 5.1 surround music mix for the broadcast, Joel Singer, engineer-in-charge and M3 company partner, made use of a DiGiGrid MGO dual-port optical MADI interface and SoundGrid SGS-1 Server One. The setup enabled co-broadcast music mixers John Harris and Eric Schilling to insert Waves Renaissance Vox and DeEsser as well as CLA-76 and SSL Compressor plugins on the truck’s console and Pro Tools system.

About DiGiCo
DiGiCo is a UK-based manufacturer of some of the world’s most popular, successful and groundbreaking digital mixing consoles for the live, theatre, broadcast and post production industries and is exclusively distributed in the U.S. by Group One Ltd. of Farmingdale, New York.
