TVLogic Adds Two More Awards To Its Growing Collection

LQM-471W MONITOR RECEIVES “STAR” AWARD FROM THE EDITORS OF TV TECHNOLOGY
DIGITAL VIDEO PRESENTS “BLACK DIAMOND” AWARD TO COMPANY FOR LVM-074W MONITOR

LAS VEGAS — TVLogic has added another two awards to its growing collection of honors. The manufacturer of LCD and OLED high definition displays received a STAR award from the editors of TV Technology at NAB 2012 for their new LQM-471W monitor; and their LVM-074W was recognized for outstanding achievement with a Black Diamond Award from Digital Video at the same show. NAB, held in Las Vegas from April 16th – April 19th, is the world’s largest electronic media show covering filmed entertainment and the development, management and delivery of content across all mediums.

Now celebrating its 12th anniversary, the STAR Awards (for Superior Technology Award Recipient) are designed to celebrate and showcase the preeminent technological innovations available to the media industry. A judging panel of broadcast industry experts reviewed a variety of products and services, examined the technical applications and their overall contribution to the industry, and then submitted their award nominees.

“The NAB show serves as the launching pad for thousands of new products and services for audio and video professionals,” said Tom Butts, TV Technology Editor-in-Chief. “Our panel of editors walked the show floor in search of the most innovative technologies. The products and services that we selected for the STAR Award made the cut—they demonstrated their ability to help advance the acquisition and distribution of entertainment and information across the media spectrum.”

The award-winning LQM-471W, a 47” 1920×1080 quad input monitor, was designed for multi-source monitoring in control rooms. With four SDI inputs/outputs, the LQM-471W supports multiple display configurations with features like Waveform/Vector Scope, Closed-Caption support, Timecode display, and remote control.

TVLogic also received a Black Diamond Award from Digital Video for their innovative LVM-074W 7″production Viewfinder Monitor. Black Diamonds recognize outstanding achievement in the advancement of video technology. A select panel of engineers, editors, and production and post professionals joined the magazine staff to judge the Best of Show awards. Weighing in at only 1.4lbs., the LVM-074W met the qualifications with its perfect blend of form and functionality.

“Our teams searched the NAB show floor for products that were truly deserving of recognition,” says NewBay Media Broadcast & Video Group Vice President & Group Publisher Eric Trabb. “Recognition with an award at NAB from the Broadcast & Video Group is a strong vote of confidence and admiration from this leading industry publication.”

Both TV Technology and Digital Video are part of NewBay Media’s Broadcast & Video Group of products.

Molloy College Addresses Integrated Media Technologies Upgrade at NAB

“Tomorrow’s Needs Today: Making the Argument for Upgrade”

Leading liberal arts institution, Molloy College, of Long Island, NY, will be participating in the Broadcast Education Association panel discussion during NAB, “Tomorrow’s Needs Today: Making the Argument for Upgrade,” on Wednesday, April 18 at The Las Vegas Hilton.   Molloy College first met with Integrated Media Technologies, Inc. (IMT) at NAB 2011 to determine the best way to upgrade their SD production facilities to full HD specs.

As media technologies continue to evolve and previous generations become obsolete, communications programs in small schools are reaching the threshold of maintaining traditional curriculum while deciding what new media to adopt and use. The BEA panel discusses strategies in proposing new media upgrades and the struggles of adopting a new program. Panelists are currently upgrading or have recently upgraded their traditional communications curriculum.
Moderator: James Cohen, Molloy College
Panelists: Matthew Tullis, Ashland University
Thomas Kenny, Molloy College

“We chose IMT after speaking with Greg Pocali at NAB 2011 last year in Las Vegas,” explained Thomas Kenny, Molloy Adjunct Instructor.  “We went to NAB to research gear and materials needed to transfer our SD studio to HD.  This included cameras, switchers, storage devices, etc.  After meeting with Greg, he pointed us in the right direction and told us exactly what we needed for a transfer.  Greg is extremely knowledgeable as an engineer and we felt comfortable with him and the staff at IMT.”

“We are upgrading our facility,” he continued, “because it is in standard-definition and at this day and age, everyone should have a high-definition facility.  If my iPad can shoot video in HD, then the studio for the students should have that capability as well.  We plan on using the facility for educational purposes to help  our students get a career in media production.  Also, this could [allow] students to start their own productions outside of class for news programs and various shows.”

Media Production Curriculum
Molloy College has had a Media Production Curriculum for several years.  Over the last two years, the college has changed its curriculum to match the change in technology.  Last year, Molloy developed and implemented a brand new minor in New Media.  This includes combining web and television – students learn how to create apps, design a website, and create web television while utilizing all mediums (iPad, Internet, television, mobile device, etc.).

Thomas Kenny concluded, “The discussion for me is based on two areas.  First is the need to have an updated, high-definition facility for our students to nurture successful careers in media/new media production. This is the area where we worked closely with Integrated Media Technologies, Inc.  The second phase of the discussion, again from the Molloy College perspective, is updating the curriculum to meet today’s standards. In today’s media culture, students creating film/television also need to include social media, websites, apps, etc., to the mix in order to have successful careers.  We are speaking about how we designed the courses for the Major & Minor.  Plus, we will tie in how both the new media Major/Minor uses the updated HD facility.

WHAT: “Tomorrow’s Needs Today: Making the Argument for Upgrade”
WHEN: Wednesday April 18, 2012 12:00pm – 1:15pm
WHERE: Las Vegas Hilton, Conference Room 1

IMT at NAB 2012, April 16-18, Las Vegas
IMT will be hosting a number of technology briefings in their hospitality suite on the second floor of the Renaissance Hotel located at 3400 Paradise Road. The hotel is conveniently located across the street from the Las Vegas Convention Center.
