FSR’s Digital Ribbon Cables Offer Price-Pleasing Solution for Simple Installions

Award-winning Innovation Made Global Debut at InfoComm

Woodland Park, NJ – FSR president Jan Sandri has announced the availability of the Company’s new Digital Ribbon mega-bandwidth HDMI cables. First shown at InfoComm 2013, the innovation received an outstanding reception by attendees, and was recognized with a 2013 Best of InfoComm Award as “Best New AV Accessory” by rAVe [Publications].

FSR’s Digital Ribbon Cables save installation time and money while providing the highest quality Images over the longest distances. Based upon a proprietary composite technology, the cable packs 10.2 Gb/Sec of bandwidth in a cable profile that is only 5mm x 2.5mm. This allows Digital Ribbon to carry 1080p and 4k x 2k HDMI signals up to 325 feet, nearly twice that of other “extended” solutions, with crystal clear accuracy.

“We didn’t want just another ‘me too’ HDMI extender product. In fact, we already have two of those. We wanted something new, something that outperforms everyone else, that is easier to install and costs less. Digital Ribbon is the answer,” exclaimed Sandri

Digital Ribbon is a money saving solution. First, Digital Ribbon is a cable. Simply pull the cable, plug it in on both ends and you are done. Installation could not be faster. Second, Digital Ribbon does not require transmitters or receivers to work. This means no black boxes to hide and no wall warts to plug in. Lastly, Digital Ribbon is far less expensive than an “extender” transmitter / receiver pair and the wire needed to connect them.

Digital Ribbon supports HD resolutions up to 1080p, 4k x 2k, 3D, Deep Color and more at distances up to 325’ while maintaining HDCP and EDID compatibility. Cables are available in a variety of lengths from 50’ to 325’, are UL listed and Plenum rated.

Shotoku Serves Up A Win For Tennis Championship Broadcasts

UNIQUE VR TRACKING SYSTEM PROVIDES AUGMENTED REALITY FOR HIGH-PROFILE SPORTING EVENT

Staines, UK – Shotoku Broadcast Systems, a leading international manufacturer of advanced camera support products, recently facilitated the introduction of Augmented Reality (AR) to BBC Sport for its live outside broadcasts of the Wimbledon 2013 tennis championships. Shotoku sales director James Eddershaw announced from the Company’s European headquarters in Staines, UK, that Shotoku provided BBC Sport with two TP-90VR and SX300VR Tracking Pedestal & Head systems for its temporary OB studio during its live outdoor coverage of the Lawn Tennis Championships.

AR was introduced on the first day of the tournament and continued to be used for every studio broadcast throughout the two-week tournament. The level of use and complexity of the graphics adapted as the tournament progressed, right up to the final day. In the UK alone, more than 17m viewers watched the men’s final broadcast.

It was Shotoku’s unique VR tracking technology that made transferring systems more typically found in permanent studio installations, into the temporary OB studio possible. Using highly accurate internal encoders to monitor all moving axes and combine with simple in-studio referencing technology, allowed Shotoku to drastically reduce the time required for installation and calibration.

“We are delighted to have been able to work with BBC Sport to help them deliver AR for the first time at an Outside Broadcast, especially at such a prestigious event as the Wimbledon tennis championships.” said Eddershaw. “We are particularly pleased with the reaction of the camera operators who used the equipment for the first time in an OB environment. Any changes to their normal operation came simply from working with the in-shot graphics, not the equipment.”

Shotoku’s recently introduced SX-300VR virtual tracking EFP head features precise tracking and uncompromised operation. Based on the popular SX300 EFP head, the ergonomic design with decades of extensive VR experience behind it provides a robust, reliable platform for a wide range of camera and lens configurations. The SX-300VR provides high-accuracy, real-time data output with absolutely no loss in manual performance. Like all Shotoku VR systems, the unit combines with the Serial Position Interface (SPI) for frame-synchronized high-resolution data tracking, compatible with all leading VR graphics systems. The head may be simply mounted on a tripod, or for real-time full 3D tracking, one of Shotoku’s VR pedestals such as the lightweight, 3-stage TP-90VR, used in this application. While both are typically employed for a range of studio configurations, the SX-300VR and TP-90VR proved to be robust, flexible and reliable in a challenging OB studio application.

Extron Now Shipping New Market-Leading Speaker Innovation for Suspended Ceilings

Extron Electronics is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the SpeedMount Ceiling Speaker System, a patented low profile, plenum rated two-piece ceiling tile speaker system for division-of-labor installations. The CS 1226T SpeedMount speaker system features the newest speaker innovation from Extron, a unique design that greatly simplifies ceiling speaker installation and delivers significant time and cost savings. The two-piece system consists of the CS 120P plenum rated enclosure and a CS 26T two-way speaker cartridge. A low-voltage contractor places the CS 120P enclosure directly on the ceiling grid without the need for a tile bridge, C-ring, or tile rails. Signal wiring is then routed to the enclosure. This dramatically cuts installation time and costs during the rough-in phase. Later, an AV technician can quickly complete installation by connecting the CS 26T speaker cartridge to the wiring and securing it into the enclosure. The CS 1226T is the latest in Extron’s expanding lineup of speaker system solutions that divide the installation labor between contractors, reduce parts counts, and streamline sound system integration. more

Technomad PowerChiton Amplifiers Revive Stadium Audio at Excelsior Springs High School

Compact, efficient design allows installation team to seamlessly integrate PowerChiton amplifier modules into existing scoreboard

BOSTON, July 30, 2013 — Students rooting for the home team at Excelsior Springs High School in Excelsior Springs, Missouri, can now enjoy vibrant, crystal-clear sound as they take in football games and other events at their school’s outdoor stadium. As part of a long-overdue audio upgrade, the school has installed two Technomad PowerChiton 500 modules at the stadium to drive its loudspeakers, significantly improving sound quality.

Kansas City, Missouri-based systems integrator Harvest Productions, which performed the upgrade, housed the new PowerChiton modules inside the stadium’s scoreboard. The compact PowerChiton design enabled the unusual installation, ensuring they are not visible to spectators. The PowerChiton amplifiers now deliver 1100 watts at four ohms, with excellent sound quality across the stadium.

The weatherproof design also ensures better outdoor protection than the school’s previous amplifiers, which were damaged from years of exposure to the elements. PowerChiton modules are built with an integral IP66-rated, NEMA weatherproof shell, and can be installed anywhere without concern about moisture or dirt.

“The old amplifiers were a mess; we found insects nesting inside the amplifier casings, which were standard electrical boxes without any weather sealing,” said Martin Pilewski, Corporate Business Development Manager at Harvest Productions. “Plus, the casings would cause the amplifiers to overheat. Every time this happened the staff would turn up the volume, which caused the speakers to blow. The PowerChiton was right in line with the school’s need for compact, weatherproof amplifiers. Not only were they ideal for outdoor audio use, but they also fit within their budget.”

The efficient PowerChiton design requires only a passive radiator for cooling, so there is a lower chance that the system will overheat. The amplifier unit is also fuse-protected for maximum operational efficiency.

“We have one of the most sophisticated high school stadiums in the area, and it was embarrassing when our speakers blew out during a football game,” said Roger Siegel, assistant director of activities at Excelsior Springs High School. “We’ve been up and running with the new system for a year now and the sound quality is a monumental improvement. The audio is crisp, clear and perfectly leveled across the stadium. We are absolutely thrilled with our new system.”

The PowerChiton is available in both wireless and Ethernet options. Pilewski chose the Ethernet version as the most cost-effective configuration for Excelsior Springs High School.

“The system was easy to set up and install,” he said. “There were already solid line level feeds in the scoreboard, so there was no need to overhaul anything just to install wireless units. We just screwed the amplifier to a wall, connected the input and output through compression fittings and plugged in the unit. It doesn’t get much simpler than that.”

Shotoku’s Pedestal/Head Systems Elevate Newscasts for Communications Corporation of America Stations

Torrance, CA • KETK-TV, a Communications Corporation of America station and the East Texas NBC affiliate located in Tyler, recently replaced a set of aging and obsolete pedestals with three Shotoku Broadcast Systems TP200/SX300 systems. Naoki Ebimoto President announced the installation from US headquarters in Torrance, CA.

On the air since 1987, KETK-TV provides news for Tyler, Longview, Waco, Shreveport and Baton Rouge sister stations from its Tyler facility. Communications Corporation of America is a leading medium-market broadcast and digital media company with outlets throughout Louisiana, Texas and Indiana.

“KETK selected the Shotoku systems following a fairly extensive research process,” explained Dan Trent, chief engineer at KETK-TV. “Price is always a driver, and Shotoku gives ‘more bang for the buck’”.

Trent continued, “We produce 12 hours of news per day for 5 stations from our Tyler facility, so Shotoku’s TP200/S300 pedestal/head system gets a lot of use. Our former equipment wasn’t capable of up and down movement, and that limited production creativity. The new units change elevation easily, giving operators the freedom to capture a variety of shots and adjust to our different sets. ”

Shotoku’s elegant and ergonomically designed TP200/SX300 Pedestal System is a state-of-the-art configuration ideal for news and production studios. The 2-stage pneumatic pedestal has a maximum payload of over 80kg (177 lbs.) and supports a wide-range of camera configurations. Its perfect balance column and base offer maximum stability and great operational flexibility. One-step foot brake and single-action cable guard enables precise movements and control at all times for fast and easy positioning.

The companion SX300 pan & tilt fluid head offers top class performance with 40kg (88 lbs.) payload and perfect counterbalance/smooth pan & tilt drag to maximize image flexibility.

Added Trent, “The systems have been performing flawlessly; we’ve already experienced a significant improvement over the previous equipment. The operators are very happy.”

The TP200/SX300 systems have been in constant use since their installation.

New WebDT Content Manager 6.0 Pro Improves User Experience and Adds New Streamlined Features

New WebDT Content Manager 6.0 Pro Improves User Experience and Adds New Streamlined Features

WCM New Content Manager Software

Dynamic Content Management Simplified


Efficient Management of Digital Signage Networks from Any Location

InfoComm, Orlando, FL & San Jose, CA – June 12, 2013 – DT Research™, Inc., an industry leader in the development of information appliances for vertical markets, today announced the release of WebDT Content Manager version 6.0 Pro, a key tool for managing a digital signage network. WebDT Content Manager (WCM) software provides inclusive tools to schedule content files and create layout designs for media displayed on digital signs. With WCM, a network manager can manage how and when content files are played on a digital signage network from any location. The new WCM 6.0 Pro streamlines operations, enhances security, and offers scalability and rich feature sets.

The newest WebDT Content Manager release, WCM 6.0 Pro, offers an improved user experience with an even more user-friendly and intuitive interface, making the process of managing digital signage content more efficient. A digital signage content manager can now edit a content playlist with single or multiple scenes using Playlist Editor, a 3-step process to publish content in a few minutes. The new calendar interface enables convenient management of playlist schedules, with drag-and-drop operation and a mini-menu to edit schedules. WCM 6.0 Pro supports a wide variety of multimedia formats, as well as built-in Widgets, real-time video-in, executable applications and remote URLs, and files can be edited and previewed in the Media Library.
The Widget Editor allows content managers to quickly create or edit content for playlists, and apply common widgets such as clock, date, time and weather to playlists directly.

The new Player tools allows a content manager to create and monitor player groups, and check the settings, download and playback status, take snapshots, and execute on/off commands for a grouped set of media players. The updated Urgent Cast feature now has three pre-set buttons to assign different Urgent Cast content to multiple player groups, and the Urgent Cast can now be in the form of a playlist or widget. When there is an urgent situation that requires immediate broadcast, clicking the preset Urgent Cast button will publish the content as defined to all target players. Another new tool with WCM 6.0 Pro is an open canvas multi-screen layout designer, with pre-loaded attributes for popular commercial display models for quick content publishing with multiple display groupings.

Beyond content management, WCM 6.0 Pro can also monitor the status of each player, track all activity, and generate reports for network reviews and advertising proof-of-play billing. Additionally, administrators can remotely update patch, restart and shut down the player appliances.

For users who work with Microsoft Active Directory, rather than creating new usernames and passwords for WCM, the data can be directly imported to WCM, including already assigned account roles and access privileges.

WebDT Content Manager software is included with purchase of WebDT digital signage single-head and multi-head hardware appliances, greatly expanding the value and deployment efficiency. Also available is the WebDT Software Development Kit (SDK) for customization and integration with third party applications.

The WCM 6.0 Pro release improves the process for a creative, timely digital signage network deployment, and adds enhanced tools for users to deliver the most dynamic and customized communications.
