Rhozet and EMC Isilon Scale-out NAS Essential in New Transcoding Workflows with Big Data Storage

Integrated Media Technologies, Inc. (IMT) has designed and implemented at Burbank’s Visual Data Media Services (VDMS) a new high performance transcoding system and shared storage workflow.  Key components in the new VDMS install are a Rhozet Carbon Coder transcode farm from Harmonic, Inc., combined with EMC Isilon’s no compromise scale-out NAS to create a large private cloud for asset management services.

John Trautman, CEO at VDMS, explained, “With IMT’s guidance, we have launched the backend infrastructure for our new and proprietary  asset management system that provides global broadcast file distribution and web publishing of all our clients’ digital assets.  With an optimized transcode platform and a large private cloud for storage, it makes managing and moving assets a straightforward and automated process.”

Pictured in Burbank, CA is John Trautman, CEO of Visual Data Media Services.

Visual Data Media Services has earned a solid reputation for quality, service and dependability by providing integrated end-to-end post-production solutions for over 15 years.  To meet the ever-evolving needs of television, feature film, and new media clients, VDMS focuses on the seamless repurposing and distribution of content for all media outlets, including Domestic Syndication, Network Broadcast, International Distribution, Home Video, Video-On-Demand, the Internet, and Mobile Devices.

As the industry transitions from physical asset inventories and distribution to digital catalogs and deliveries, it is increasingly difficult to manage assets and meet tightened delivery windows.  With a multitude of file formats, codec’s, and non-standard delivery platforms to deal with, the traditional methods no longer worked.

“We met with VDMS to determine the best of breed solution that would meet their workflow and performance needs,” explained IMT’s Jason Kranitz.  “Rhozet Carbon Coder was the most flexible of the transcoding products and fit their model nicely.  For the most comprehensive storage solution, Isilon provided the scalability and flexibility, plus the ultra-performance of their new X200 nodes.”

According to IMT’s Director of Architecture Jose Palencia, “The EMC Isilon system at VDMS accelerates high-concurrent and sequential throughput media applications, speeding access to massive amounts of critical data, dramatically reducing costs and complexity.”

The new Harmonic Rhozet and EMC Isilon X200 installation at VDMS enables clients to manage and distribute their content in a secure online environment.  Key features include customizable metadata schemas, file downloads, push files via Aspera, Smartjog and Signiant, full online asset screenings, and unlimited user access for client screenings to assist in licensing content.  All major formats and codec’s are supported.

“We realized we had to completely redesign our operation if we wanted to satisfy our clients and continue to grow at our current rapid pace,” remarked VDMS’s John Trautman.  “After many meetings with vendors at trade shows and interviewing a number of consulting companies, IMT clearly stood out.  They fully understood our complex workflows and gave us the media and storage networking solutions that are working flawlessly.  Obviously, we were under a time crunch, but after IMT’s strategy was finalized, we were able to get the entire project turned around in less than 60 days.”

PESA Introduces World’s First HDcctv-Compliant Routing Switcher

HDcctv 16X16 Routing Switcher

Compact 1RU HDcctv 16X16 Routing Switcher

Huntsville, Alabama – December 27, 2011 – PESA® today unveiled the new 16X16 PESA HDcctv Routing Switcher, the world’s first HDcctv routing switcher with full compliance to the HDcctv Alliance™ high-definition video interface standard for security and surveillance systems. With just a single RG-59 coax cable for each port, users can connect up to 16 HDcctv-compliant video cameras to the PESA HDcctv Routing Switcher and output up to 16 individual coax connections for HDcctv DVR or display devices. Designed specifically for high-definition video over coax, PESA’s new 16X16 HDcctv Routing Switcher features a compact 1RU enclosure, local or remote network control options and a redundant power supply and control card option.

“The PESA HDcctv Routing Switcher is the ultimate interface where multiple HDcctv cameras and DVR’s need to be shared or switched in the best quality format available,” said Dan Holland, PESA’s Vice President of Product Marketing. “HDcctv is based on proven uncompressed high definition video technology so there is no need to compromise quality or worry about dropped packets, latency, or bandwidth allocation issues normally found with IP based technology.”

With a compact frame design, the PESA HDcctv Routing Switcher uses full uncompressed video technology to distribute brilliant high resolution images from devices as far away as 100m over traditional RG-59 coax cable. With the 1.5Gbps enabled transport for each port, video resolutions for 720p and 1080p are evenly distributed without compression. Unlike IP-based switches and hubs using distributed 10Gbps backbone, PESA’s HDcctv Routing Switcher allocates a dedicated 1.5Gbps for each device connected to the router. In aggregate comparison to IP solutions, PESA’s 16X16 HDcctv compliant routing system provides over 24Gbps of non-blocking, non-compressed video switching.

Based on the HDcctv Alliance standard, all inputs are auto-equalized and outputs reclocked to transmit 720p25/30, 720p50/60, or 1080p25/30 video resolutions distances up to 100m (300ft). Two independent reference inputs allow easy selection of gen-lock from black burst or a tri-level sync source. The frame assembly features a front load / hot swappable matrix card and includes space for an optional redundant power supply and control module. Each HDcctv Routing Switcher provides control interfaces for PESA’s Ethernet control system or can be configured to support many third-party control systems. Additionally, the PESA HDcctv Routing Switcher easily supports an optional local pushbutton control panel, up to 80 remote control panels, or control via a unique PESA soft-panel – a software emulated version of control panels.

With almost four decades of proven technology development in high-quality broadcast switching products, PESA continues to be an innovative provider of future-proof video distribution product solutions. The PESA 16X16 HDcctv Routing Switcher is the world’s first fully compliant HDcctv Matrix Switch and PESA’s roadmap includes several other HDcctv matrix and signal processing devices to be introduced in 2012.

As customers analyze ever larger amounts of video data and need to derive more value and ROI from their investment in video security and surveillance equipment, the HDcctv standard continues to deliver cost-effective, full uncompressed video solutions for users looking to upgrade legacy CCTV systems or design new greenfield megapixel IP video systems.

”The enormous market opportunity for uncompressed HD surveillance video over coax is increasingly widely recognized in the security industry,” observed Todd Rockoff, executive director of HDcctv Alliance. “Realization of that market opportunity requires multi-vendor/brand compatibility, which is ensured by compliance with the HDcctv standard. By delivering the world’s first HDcctv-compliant matrix switch, PESA has contributed a critical component for enterprise-class HDcctv-based surveillance systems.”

About HDcctv Alliance
HDcctv Alliance® is the non-profit industry association that develops and promulgates the global specification for high-definition closed-circuit television (HDcctv). The V1.0 HDcctv specification is derived from broadcast industry standards for 100% digital serial transmission of uncompressed video over coaxial cable. However, HDcctv is planned to also transmit video over various media (including optical fiber and Cat5), and the HDcctv standard optimizes the interface to meet the needs of the surveillance market. The Alliance promotes industry adoption of HDcctv technology, and it provides education both to the surveillance equipment industry and to equipment buyers. HDcctv-compliant products bear the distinctive HDcctv logo that guarantees transmission distance and interoperability with other HDcctv-compliant products. The Alliance also offers an HDcctv Certificate for video surveillance system designers, installers, and dealers through an education program. An up-to-date list of HDcctv-compliant Products and Certified HDcctv Professionals is maintained at www.highdefcctv.org.

Dual DiGiCo SD8 Systems At ZZ Top’s 1st Annual La Grange Fest Blow Away Band’s Live Sound & Satellite Radio Broadcast

ZZ Top pulled off their very first La Grange Fest in late October, pairing the timeless Tejas boogie kings with Southern rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd and country singer Jamey Johnson. Set just outside Austin in Bee Cave, the fest—and subsequent live broadcast on Sirius XM radio—was accomplished using DiGiCo‘s SD8 at the hands of the band’s engineer, Jamie “Jamo” Rephann. Both Jamo and monitor engineer Jake Mann have been rockin’ SD8s (Mann on an SD8-24) for several years on the band’s tours with production partner Clair Brothers.



The SD8 was in place when Jamo inherited the gig from engineer buddy Toby Francis. “He’d been raving about the DiGiCo’s and I just decided to go with it,” Jamo recalled. “I had been previously using a Venue Profile for AFI and The Mars Volta, but after hearing the difference between the Avid and DiGiCo, I was sold on the SD8, and don’t want to use anything else from now on.”



But it is the sonic quality of the SD8 that induces raves from the veteran engineer. “The DiGiCo sound is the best I’ve heard on a digital desk of any make or model, and I’ve used all of them from the Yamaha MC7 to the Midas XL8. Side-by-side, the SD8 smokes them both. I didn’t touch anything but a Midas XL 4 for like 10 years, and am a huge Midas fan… but they don’t hold a candle to the DiGiCo’s. The real difference came after mixing on a Venue Profile for 2 years (with a Big Ben as an external word clock). I ran some CD’s and was amazed at the sonic quality I was hearing. Everything was in the 160-500Hz area and the ‘air’ from 8-12k was back, almost like a great analog desk! I couldn’t believe my ears and was already kicking myself for not trying this desk earlier. It has the quality of a smooth analog sounding desk and I couldn’t be happier.”



The console’s I/O section and onboard features have proved versatile for handling the various house systems the 3-piece encounters from gig to gig. “I’m using a total of 38 inputs for ZZ Top, not including the 4 audience mics. I also have as many as 8 outputs a night to drive a variety of house systems—L, R, Sub, Center, Outfill, Delays, Smart, and SMPT for video that we run through my desk to lighting. I really love the delays on the output section, available on every output, and EQ and compression if you want it. But I have to tell you, I cannot live without using the multiband compressors on a few things because of the DiGiCo sound. They’re super-transparent and really do a wonderful job with everything I use them on. I use the multibands on both channels of vocals, kick and snare channel inserts, bass group, synth bass and guitar group. Also, the regular comps and gates sound great as well. They’re very smooth and warm-sounding with no “pumping” as it were. Additionally, I do some channel splitting and panning things on the guitars. I have 3 guitar channels that I make stereo and pan all the way. I’m also using my control groups to do most of my mixing as well as the normal subbing out of kick, snare, bass, vocals, guitars, and etcetera. Then I’ll use the compressors on the subgroups if needed… it kind of melds things together, if you will, a bit better in my opinion.”
 


With space often an issue in venues and on festival dates, the SD8′s compact footprint has paid off. “It’s really comes in handy so many times when space was an issue. I just use the desk and an easy tilt so I roll up with nothing other than a Smart tablet and my desk. It has really helped me get in and out at many festivals with a minimum of space and hassle.”



The band is recorded on every gig, which serves several functions, including virtual soundchecking. “Monitor engineer and resident SD8 guru Jake Mann multitracks each show using an RME MADIface card into a MacBook Pro using Logic,” explained Jamo. “And since the band does not soundcheck at all, virtual soundcheck is KEY to my show every day.”



At the LaGrange Festival, working in tandem with the Sirius and Skynyrd’s audio crews only reinforced Jamo’s love of the DiGiCo desk. “As usual, the console preformed amazing with no issues at all. I do love the uses of delay times on the outputs as I delayed the FOH mix to radio and added Sirius’ 2 audience mics. There was an additional Profile at FOH for Skynyrd and even with the external word clock the SD8 just smoked it. I hear their engineer is now going to try the DiGiCo after hearing our show, which just destroyed his profile sonic-wise and left it sounding limp and weak! There was none of the low-mids or shimmering highs with the Profile. He ran a mic through my desk and was stunned just at the vast improvement to his voice compared to the Avid… ‘Nuff said. Not to mention, the Sirius radio guys said that it was the best sounding live performance to air over Sirius.”

rockcenter_xmaslighting_2011.JPGNEW YORK, NEW YORK – DECEMBER 2011: When construction workers decorated a twenty-foot tree with paper garlands, cranberry strings, and the tinfoil ends of blasting caps in the early years of the Great Depression, they had no way of knowing they were starting a beloved holiday tradition.
