LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, APRIL 16, 2012 — Gepco International, an industry-leading brand in professional audio and video interconnect products, is pleased to show off new customer tools and products at the NAB Show April 16-19, 2012 with demonstrations in their booth (#C8508). Highlighting tools to assist customers, Gepco will unveil its new Mobile Web Reference, as well as offer a first look at its upcoming Online Panel Designer™. Also debuting at the NAB Show, the Gepco® Brand TactiFlex™ Flexible Ruggedized Fiber Optic Cables will carry the signal for 3D-4U, Inc.’s 180-degree 3D Camera demonstration, alongside a demo for Gepco® Brand RunONE™ Powered Cables.

Accessible from any device with web browsing capabilities, the Gepco Mobile Web Reference is touch-optimized for smartphones and tablets and features an intuitive user interface with expanding and collapsing menus, showing only the details the user wants to view. NAB attendees can visit the Gepco Booth for a live demonstration with a Gepco representative or to view a demonstration video.

NAB attendees can also visit the Gepco Booth to view a demonstration video for the upcoming Gepco Online Panel Designer™. To be launched later this year, the Gepco Panel Designer will provide a time-saving, visual interface for designing custom panels via a web browser. With drag-and-drop features, Gepco’s Panel Designer will allow the user to choose the panel type, size, material, finish, connectors and lettering options so the user can quickly and easily submit his or her custom panel for a quote or order.

Designed for portable applications in harsh environments, the new Gepco® Brand TactiFlex™ Flexible Ruggedized Fiber Optic Cables are tough and lightweight, yet more flexible than standard ruggedized fiber cables on the market.

TactiFlex will make its debut at NAB 2012 by carrying the signal for a demonstration of 3D-4U, Inc.’s 180-Degree 3D Camera in the Gepco Booth. Through its patent-pending software and multi-sensor 180- or 360-degree camera, 3D-4U’s unique media player allows viewers to zoom in or out, pan left or right, or tilt up or down with a variety of standard interactive controllers. The immersive video technology developed by 3D-4U utilizes custom solutions designed and built by DigiMax Consulting and Gepco International. Among the custom solutions provided by Gepco are a 16-channel CWDM (Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing) Mux/Demux, a custom fiber reel, and custom panels and boxes, all of which are terminated with various connectors.

Making their first appearance at NAB, Gepco® Brand RunONE™ Powered Cables combine audio and power, along with optional data, under a single durable, yet flexible jacket. With multiple uses for corporations, DJs, lighting rigs and tours, RunONE allows the user to pull a single cable in place of multiple cables, providing a portable and neat solution that saves time and hassle. Each RunONE cable combines one channel of power with two, eight or 12 channels of 110 Ohm balanced audio for line level, mic level or digital AES audio signals and can be used with self-powered speakers or in DMX lighting control. Using real-time analytical software, Gepco will demonstrate the superior characteristics of Gepco’s RunONE cables by comparing them to similar products. The software will measure handling noise, interference and frequency performance for differences you can not only hear, but see.

“We’re pleased to not only be able to show off some new products this year at NAB, but also new tools that will improve the customer experience,” said Joe Zajac, Sales and Applications Engineer for Gepco® Brand Products.

Christie Hosts Cinema Industry Heavyweights at First-Ever High Frame Rate (HFR) Laser Projection Demo

Christie® hosted a high frame rate (HFR) Summit yesterday at Christie’s worldwide center for engineering, research and development in Kitchener, Ontario, touring cinema-industry luminaries through its manufacturing facility and providing the first-ever laser projection of high frame rate cinema and alternative content on to a 30-foot white screen.

Recent Gordon E. Sawyer Academy Award winner Douglas Trumbull, Ian Bidgood, Technical Director, Park Road Post Production; Matt Cowan, Chief Scientific Officer, RealD; John Helliker and Bert Dunk, Directors at the Screen Industries Research and Training Centre and Demetri Portelli, Stereographer met with Christie engineering and product development staff for a vibrant information sharing session and discussion on high frame rates, laser projection, and the future of 3D and 4K projection.

“Our guests were very impressed with our demonstration of high-frame rate content using one of our prototype laser projectors,” said Don Shaw, senior director, Product Management, Christie Entertainment Solutions, “as well as the laser projector development roadmap we shared in these frank discussions.”

Big, Bright and Crystal Clear Will Spark Cinema Industry Renaissance
The consensus of the assembled industry experts was that the industry needs to differentiate itself from the plethora of varied viewing options, from tablets to home theaters and all manner of exhibitor setups, to raise itself out of its current malaise.

Doug Trumbull said “Spectacular movies delivered at high-frame rates, on to big and vividly bright screens, will enable the production and exhibition of amazingly immersive cinema experiences that will be far more powerful than any other medium.”

Echoing Mr. Trumbull’s sentiments, Ian Bidgood suggested that “…3D images must be awe-inspiring to bring back the crowds to theaters worldwide, and the higher brightness levels that are required to do justice to these images, along with higher frame rate material, will be delivered by Christie’s technology in the laser field, with new projector and cinema solutions for today and the future.”

Christie plans on incorporating laser projection technology into its cinema product line, business products line and visualization and simulation solutions where it benefits its customer base.

The Kitchener facility for projection, visualization/simulation, DLP Cinema and LED-based products and solutions is Registered to ISO14001 (Environmental Management System) and Registered to ISO9001 (Quality Management System).

Christie’s Commitment to HFR
The two main goals of Christie’s HFR activities are to help the industry develop the best HFR content and the best delivery system for HFR content. The first goal involves assisting leading-edge filmmakers and post-production companies in perfecting HFR movie creation, so the industry has the most engaging, entertaining content possible. The second goal is to assist exhibitors in showing these 3D HFR movies in all their glory. To these ends, Christie is helping create the standards for 3D HFR movies through formal and informal technology-development alliances with major producers and directors, post production facilities, studios and technology partners. On the exhibitor’s front, Christie provides one stop shopping for all the hardware, software and services that enable exhibitors to deliver a filmmaker’s vision in stunning 3D HFR quality.

Christie Broadcasts Latest Visual Technologies At NAB 2012

Christie(r) is showcasing some of its newest technologies at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show April 16-19 including a High Frame Rate (HFR) 3D demonstration, an expanded portfolio of 3-chip DLP(r) projectors that can natively project in portrait orientation and the introduction of two new 3LCD projectors. Also on the booth is a new Christie broadcast set design featuring an interactive tiled display wall.
Front and center in the high definition Christie broadcast set design is a concave backdrop of 138 Christie(r) MicroTiles(r). The 48 center tiles feature interactive technology while two portrait-mounted 55-inch Christie FHD551-x flat panels frame the sides of this fully integrated display.
With the elimination of furniture and its shallow profile view, the set is designed to show the future of broadcast sets. In addition to the interactive component allowing on-air personalities to manipulate content and illustrate their story, the set changes from one design to another with a simple touch.
Managing and controlling the multiple display and video processing technologies for maximum viewer engagement is the Christie Spyder X20 video processor.
HFR Projection Technology on Display
Christie presented the first public demonstration of HFR projection in 2011 and, for NAB 2012, it continues its technology leadership. On Monday, April 16 at 4:30 p.m. local time, in an exclusive demonstration, 3D content from award-winning director James Cameron will be screened for the media.

Using the Christie CP2220 Digital Cinema(r) projector, Christie will show the James Cameron directed medieval feast and sword fight. This 40-minute video (showing 24, 48 and 60 frames per second comparisons of cinema content) will be held several times daily in a theater-like experience complete with red velvet rope.

The Christie CP2220 projector offers full 2K resolution triple flash for 3D projection and built-in support for HDCP and de-interlacing of alternative content. Using the Texas Instruments 1.2″ DMD allows for bigger, brighter 3D movies, and more efficient cooling which extends the life of the projector.

Christie Launches a New 3LCD Projector Platform
Part of a new series, the Christie LX501 and Christie LX601i projectors are designed for small-to-medium sized venues in higher education, corporate environments and government agencies. These XGA models are the first of a new 3LCD platform that will include wide resolution models later this year.

The Christie LX501 is a 5000 lumen XGA (1024 x 768 resolution) projector that adds another feature-rich, yet affordable solution to Christie’s 3LCD product lineup.
The professional-grade Christie LX601i XGA projector offers 6000 lumens and is suitable for similar venues in the ProAV market requiring slightly higher brightness. It also offers an intuitive LCD information display panel to make setup and maintenance easier to manage.

This versatile series includes a 20,000 hours hybrid filter; expandable, wireless connectivity and a suite of optional lenses – including repeatable lens memory recall settings – making these models perfect for multi-screen applications.

Christie Expands 3-Chip DLP Portrait Display Offerings
The Christie J Series, the Christie Roadie HD+35K and now the Christie M Series offer the flexibility to create displays in portrait orientation in models ranging from 5,000 to 35,000 lumens. Not all content comes in a standard 16:9 or similar format and some of today’s most captivating visual presentations require creating displays in portrait orientation.

With all of Christie’s 3-chip DLP(r) projectors now capable of portrait mode, customers have more flexibility to showcase natural, native content display configurations – all without compromising brightness – making Christie solutions ideal for concerts, projection mapping and other large venue applications. Portrait mode also offers more vertical pixels, higher vertical resolution, and shorter throw distance capabilities using multiple projectors.

Christie is featuring its own projection mapping display including – all in portrait orientation – two Christie Roadster HD20K-J models along with a Christie Roadie HD+35K. In another portrait orientation display, four Christie HD10K-M projectors will display content on their own widescreen canvas. Both displays will demonstrate the flexibility, power and performance of Christie’s 3-chip DLP(r) projection solutions in any orientation.

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.

Optical Devices Division of FUJIFILM to Introduce Long HD Field Lens with Attractive Price Point at NAB 2012

XA77x9.5 features OS-TECH image stabilization, FIND diagnostic system, 16-bit encoding, dust-proof and anti-fogging technology, macro shooting, and remote control

Wayne, N.J., April 11, 2012 – FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Optical Devices Division announced that it will introduce the XA77x9.5 HDTV field lens during the NAB 2012 convention, which runs from April 14th-19th in the Las Vegas Convention Center (Booth #C7525). The XA77x9.5 is well suited for use within mobile trucks, at stadiums, sporting events, arenas, larger houses of worship – anywhere a long lens would be beneficial in capturing detail and close up images from far distances.

“This is a lens that makes high-quality, long-distance shooting possible for a much wider range of customers,” said Thom Calabro, Director, Marketing and Product Development, FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Optical Devices Division. “And it comes standard with several key features that ensure rock solid performance.”

Among them, the XA77x9.5 features the company’s patented OS TECH image stabilization. OS-TECH contains sensors that detect the slightest movement caused by vibration. A correction signal is applied to the optical system, which helps to maintain a stable image when shooting from an unstable platform, or in windy conditions.

The lens’ advanced diagnostic FIND (Focused Intelligent Network Diagnosis) system aids in preventative maintenance and troubleshooting by evaluating lens electronic and mechanical parameters.

The XA77x9.5 also incorporates FUJINON’s dustproof and anti-fogging technology. All FUJINON field lenses have a fixed front element that reduces dust contamination and serves as a protection for the front focus group. A concealed compartment that contains a drying agent reduces fogging in internal lens components due to humidity. All of this helps in maintaining long-term reliability and performance.

And 16-bit optical encoding output provides high positioning accuracy in virtual environments. An advanced back focus system on the XA77x9.5 allows macro shooting from as close as 2.7m from the subject. With an optional controller, the advanced back focus provides enhanced production features. Of course, this HD field lens is compatible with all existing FUJINON EFP controllers, and full remote control via RS-232 is standard.
