High Resolution Systems LLC will be showcasing its new line of UDC-Touch touchscreens in the lower South Hall at NAB 2011 (Booth SL5622). The company will be sharing the booth with PI Engineering.

UDC-Touch is a Windows-Embedded based touchscreen solution for device control. At the heart of the system is High Resolution’s UDC (Universal Device Control) software, which communicates with the devices to be controlled; multiple 7 or 10-inch touchscreen interfaces can be located in different areas and access the centralized UDC system.

“UDC-Touch uses our web server feature, but we’ve developed a special app that enables the touchscreens to be faster and more economical than a web browser,” says sales engineer Drew Taylor, “Another great thing about our embedded touchscreens is that there is no moving parts to them”.

Vaddio Unveils New HD Robotic PTZ Camera Comparable to 3-Chip Broadcast Camera

New ClearVIEW HD-20 Features “True Native HD Imaging�

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (April 1, 2011) – Experience true 1080p HD video quality, without the artifacts and noise so many single chip HD cameras produce, with Vaddio’s newest high definition camera, the ClearVIEW HD-20. With a glass multi-element 20x motorized zoom lens and the newly designed precision slip-clutch robotics, the HD-20 provides fluid broadcast-quality motion control with smooth pan/tilt operation for accurate camera movement and control.

“The challenge with building the industry’s first True Single Chip HD PTZ camera was finding an imaging sensor that could natively display 1080p images,� explained President of Vaddio Rob Sheeley. “Because traditional CMOS pixels get really small in sensors larger than 2-megapixels, most video camera manufacturer’s stay with lower resolution sensors and scale a 720 image to 1080. By scaling the image, the pixel size remains large, while still reducing the noise and light more

Vizrt to Demo Integration with Stergen Live 2D to Stereo 3D Conversion Software at 2011 NAB

Bergen, Norway, Vizrt Ltd. (Oslo Main List: VIZ)

In the same way that sports was the “killer app� that fueled early interest in HDTV, many sports networks such as ESPN 3D and Sky 3D are betting that live sports will drive the fledgling 3DTV medium. With many sports aficionados among the early adopters of 3DTV, broadcasters are hustling to produce as much live 3DTV sports as possible, and they need stereo 3D production tools that make the job faster, easier, and more cost-effective.

JĂĽnger Audio Introduces Two New Combo Cards For Its C8000 Dynamics Processing and Loudness Control System

The current economic climate has made many broadcasters highly conscious of the costs they incur when choosing new equipment. This isn’t just limited to the initial purchase price – it is also reflected in ongoing costs such as energy requirements and physical space savings.

The first of these cards is the C8586, a dual combo board providing two SDI streams, each with four channels of audio. This card is particularly well suited to the needs of re-broadcasters (Sat, IPTV, Cable) as it will enable them to process up to 32 channels in dual stereo and in one frame. What’s more, the card will be very competitively priced, thus enabling more

Of course, all kinds of familiar IIR crossovers can be used, more
