1. Revamped Media Server — Atlas Media Server
Designed for IPTV operators, telcos, mobile operators, broadcasters, and Over The Top (OTT) video providers, the powerful Atlas Media Server provides grooming and VOD (video on demand) options in three different sizes.

The system ingests MPEG-2, H.264, and/or H.265/HEVC live streams over IP, then “grooms” the streams by adding wrappers such as MPEG-DASH, HLS, or RTMP, plus subtitles for closed captions or multiple languages. It outputs the live streams and simultaneously stores the streams as VOD files.

2. UDP Video Packet Recovery Technology — Winner of the Society of Broadcast Engineers Technology Award for 2014 — DOZERbox II IP IP
DVEO’s patent pending “DOZER” technology enables reliable high quality video delivery over public internet or so-so private lines. The DOZERbox II IP IP is a compact end-to-end Error Correcting Router for smoothing UDP traffic over the public internet, with built-in packet recovery algorithms for alleviation of packet loss and resultant video freezes. It does not add jitter or noise, and does not increase bandwidth consumption like FEC. It is perfect for delivering critical video over congested public backbones.

The technology is also available as a software license — the Media Dozer: LIC™, or in a one RU system — the DOZER Racks IP IP™. The DOZERbox II IP IP is the winner of the prestigious Society of Broadcast Engineers Technology Award for 2014.

3. Mobile Cellular Modem Encoder for H.264 HD Streaming from HD-SDI Cameras — Mobile Backpack: H.264/HD-SDI Kit
The Mobile Backpack: H.264/HD-SDI Kit is a lightweight (about 8.6 lbs./3.9 kg.) H.264 backpack encoder for streaming HD-SDI, SDI, or HDMI video via live wireless video and data transmission, using bonded 3G and 4G mobile network connections. It bundles up to eight mobile network channels from one or more operators into a single broadband channel.

Streaming media production professionals will use this system for electronic news gathering and streaming live video from events. The system ships with a matching decoder and a custom made backpack.

4. 120 Channel Adaptive Optimized Transcoder for OTT and Multi Screen Services –Brutus V IP/IP: TELCO
The enterprise class Brutus IV IP/IP: TELCO is a real time Adaptive Optimized Transcoder with 48 Cores — ideal for simple transcoding or grooming at headends for OTT or Multiscreen services. It transcodes up to 120 SD streams, or 40 720p HD streams, or 30 1080i/p HD streams from MPEG-2 to H.264 or vice-versa. The system is suitable for IPTV, OTT, mobile TV, broadcast, and Telco TV, or as a transcoder/reformatter for RTSP IP Cameras. The Brutus supports Flash, HLS, RTMP, HTTP, Smooth, and Live streaming and works well with Wowza®, Adobe® Flash® and RealNetworks® Servers.

5. IP to SDI/HD-SDI Video and Audio Decoder — D-Streamer IP/DIG
The D-Streamer IP/DIG is a real time H.264 or MPEG-2 decoder that receives IP transport streams and decodes them to SDI or HD-SDI, or optional HDMI. Streaming media content providers use DVEO’s MultiStreamer DIG/IP to encode SDI or HD-SDI to H.264 IP, then decode the IP streams with the D-Streamer IP/DIG. The Linux® based system is available in three versions — a single input channel, two input channels, or 1-8 input channels. It is perfect for receiving and professionally decoding “poor” video from IP cameras, remote sites, content delivery networks (CDNs), or IPTV compatible appliances or players. The system works with Teradek, Nanocaster, Minicaster, Axis IP Cameras, and other streaming appliances.

6. Ad Inserter for Mobile Multi Screen Video Delivery and for OTT — Ad Serter IP/ASI/SDI
The Ad Serter IP/ASI/SDI is a broadcast quality playout server with Ad and EAS (Emergency Alert System) capabilities. It inserts or overlays video clips, graphical ads, logos, scrolling text, and RSS news feeds — anywhere on live or stored video content, on a schedule, or via signaling like SCTE 35 signals from EAS generators. Graphics, logos, and text can be static, blinking, or rotating.

The system adds messages to one to four IPTV SD channels, or to one to four targeted SD cable or on-air channels or sub channels. (An option for 1 HD and 3 SD channels is available.) Three versions are available: DVB-ASI, IP, or SDI.

7. 50 Channel Transcoding IP Video Playout Server with Scheduling — IP Grooming Server 50ch 1TB
The IP Grooming Server 50ch 1TB is a file playout server for scheduled continuous streaming. It stores various file types, then “grooms” them by transcoding the streams to H.264 and/or scaling the video to different resolutions. It also adds various “wrappers” such as HLS, RTMP, etc.

With the IP Grooming Server, users can create their own 50 “streaming” web channels with 50 different movies or content, playing on a preset schedule. The Linux® based system is a great video hosting playout server for ISPs, corporate websites, schools, hotels, and digital signage.

8. SDI/HD-SDI to IP Live Streaming Appliance — MultiStreamer DIG/IP
The latest version of DVEO’s real time MultiStreamer DIG/IP live streaming webcasting encoder receives one, two, or four SDI or HD-SDI inputs (from cameras, editing systems, or video servers) and multiple IP inputs. It creates multiple simultaneous high, medium, and low bitrate IP streams and sends them to iPads, iPhones, content delivery networks (CDNs), and remote video capture devices. Each stream can have several proxies with different “wrappers” such as HLS, RTMP, etc. The broadcast quality system features schedulable input — it can receive input at a specified date and time — and ships with one terabyte of local storage.

The MultiStreamer is also available with other video input formats — 8VSB, HDMI, Analog, DVB-ASI, HDMI, DVB-S+S2, DVB-T+T2, QAM, ISDB-T, or DVB-C.

“We are excited to be showing our leading edge products at Streaming Media West,” said Laszlo Zoltan, Vice President of DVEO. “Our unique streaming systems feature lots of options to meet the needs of our customers. And as always, we are very open to customizing our products.”

Margarita Mix of Santa Monica Adds Fourth Fairlight EVO System

Sound Mixer Paul Hurtubise at the Fairlight EVO Audio Production System, Margarita Mix, Santa Monica, CA.

Sound Mixer Paul Hurtubise at the Fairlight EVO Audio Production System, Margarita Mix, Santa Monica, CA.

SANTA MONICA, CA (Nov 3, 2014) — Margarita Mix of Santa Monica, a FotoKem company specializing in audio post services for commercials and advertising media, has installed a fourth Fairlight EVO integrated audio production system for their award-winning team of sound designers, mixers and composers. With the upgrade, the facility’s accomplished sound mixers Paul Hurtubise, Jimmy Hite, Nathan Dubin and Jeff Levy are now working on identical audio post platforms in their HD mixing suites.

“The facility was already working extensively on Fairlight, and after careful evaluation and testing, I made the transition,” says Hurtubise, who joined Margarita Mix in late 2012 with over 20 years of experience in commercial audio post.

Having used a number of platforms over the course of his career, Hurtubise notes, “I simply think Fairlight sounds better. It’s less fatiguing on the ears, and I seem to hear things more clearly and definitively.

“The EVO workstation is also very ergonomic and easy to operate,” he adds. “I feel like I’m on a system that’s been developed for humans to work on. EVO’s jogger fits my hand, and its keyboard fits my fingers. I’m running sessions more efficiently because I’m not as focused on all the clicking.”

Hurtubise also points out that the graphic displays are less fatiguing. “It’s much easier for me to be on the Fairlight all day. I noticed immediately that I wasn’t as physically tired at the end of the day. The displays are comfortable to work on, too.”

According to the talented mixing team at Margarita Mix, there are plenty of features to like about the system. They like that the picture has a home in the system, versus floating around the screen. “The picture’s right there when I want it—I love the Pyxis,” Hurtubise says of the dual-channel HD video recorder that is integrated into EVO as standard. “I also like the streaming Pyxis video frames along the bottom of the timeline display, and being able to see the picture frames before and after the playhead. This way, I can see how many frames I have until my next edit.”

When the mixers need to face the voiceover booth with a script in front of them rather than face the EVO surface, they’ve created a macro that puts “Record” on different sides of the controller so that it’s ergonomically easier for them. Fairlight’s one-button record function also helps in VO sessions when the talent starts to speak. “We don’t want to interrupt them; if we press our ‘Record’ macro button, the disk recorder immediately stops one take and goes right into another one in the span of a 1/10th of a second,” Hurtubise explains.

Custom fader sets are another admired attribute of the system. “I’ve never been on a system where I can so easily lay out faders to my liking,” says Hurtubise. “Sometimes I’m knee deep into a session and I really wish I had my beeps next to my mic, right next to my music stem, right next to my sound effects stem, next to the dialog stem next to my headphone send—then I can mute and level them very easily. I can create that quickly with Fairlight.”

There are several features on the Fairlight that the Margarita Mix team hasn’t had available on previous DAWs. “For example, I like the way Fairlight solos tracks: I can solo a set of tracks, un-solo them by holding control and pressing one button, and then re-solo that same set by pressing one button,” Hurtubise reports. “I like being able to memorize zooms. Say I have 128 tracks with 70 music stems and 40 sound effects stems. I can zoom to the music tracks and store it in U1; I can go to the sound effects tracks and store that in U2. If I hear something in the music I just press U1, and instantly I’m looking at the music stems. It is super easy.”

All four Fairlight operators at Margarita Mix use similar console control templates for uniformity. Nathan Dubin has been at Margarita Mix for over a decade recording VO, mixing for television, ADR recording for film and commercial mixing for TV and radio that has earned several industry accolades. Working with clients such as Nissan, Activision, Disney, AT&T, Kaiser Permanente, and UPS, Jimmy Hite has over 30 years of experience in sound mixing for the commercial and advertising industries, and has won numerous awards throughout his career. Paul Hurtubise focuses on commercial mixing as well as ADR and commentary recording. His recent credits include spots for Google, eHarmony, Old Navy, Hyundai, and Toyota, among others. Jeff Levy has been part of the team for 20-plus years, also earning multiple awards for mixing and sound design.

Forbidden Supplies Forscene Cloud-Editing Package for Coverage of the Toronto International Film Festival

LONDON — Oct. 28, 2014 — Forbidden Technologies plc (AIM: FBT), the AIM-quoted owner and developer of the market-leading cloud video platform Forscene, announced that it sponsored entertainment journalist Bonnie Laufer’s coverage of the renowned Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in September, which ran on U.S. entertainment Web portal The Seven Sees. Forbidden provided a turnkey cloud editing package, including access to Forscene and a Forscene server, which allowed Laufer to collaborate with editors at the headquarters of her entertainment news company, The Smart Entertainment Group, and make the finished content available to The Seven Sees.

“It was an absolute pleasure using Forscene to edit the interviews I conducted during TIFF. It was quick and efficient, and made the process easy, especially when I had interviews that used more than one camera,” said Laufer, who is executive producer at The Smart Entertainment Group and has covered TIFF for 25 years. “Having the system and server on hand to upload the interviews to my colleagues at The Seven Sees in Los Angeles was undeniably efficient and a complete lifesaver. There is no question in my mind that I will be using Forscene to edit all of my interviews from now on.”

Laufer conducted 80 celebrity interviews at TIFF and used Forscene to make the interview footage immediately available to editors at Smart Entertainment headquarters in Toronto and The Seven Sees in Los Angeles, thousands of miles away. A Forscene server at Smart Entertainment automatically ingested the TIFF interviews into predetermined folders in the Forscene cloud based on watch folders that were set up on the media storage system. Editors at Smart Entertainment and The Seven Sees could then access the media, edit the interviews, integrate graphic elements, and then make the finished packages available for review.

Once approved, the finished segments were then published directly from the Forscene server to The Seven Sees website using the original high-resolution footage stored in the Forscene cloud.

“Forscene is an amazing technology for Web streaming portals like ours that need to acquire and edit media originating anywhere in the world,” said Jonathan Ratliff, owner and editor-in-chief of The Seven Sees, which gets about 500,000 visitors per month. “The speed of acquisition and creative control it offers during the editing process is incredible. During TIFF we had almost instant access to the media acquired in Toronto so that it could be utilized in Los Angeles. The back end of publishing the content was just a drag and drop away, where we could create MPEG streams to publish to our streaming site. We are excited about the future of creative possibilities in the Forscene cloud.”

“Bonnie Laufer is a well-respected journalist in her field and has conducted thousands of celebrity interviews throughout her career,” said Greg Hirst, business development director and president of the U.S. office for Forbidden Technologies plc. “Supporting her in her coverage of such a high-profile event as TIFF exposed a new audience to Forscene and demonstrated its great benefit when generating content for Web portals, which — perhaps more than any other media outlet — are expected to run up-to-the-minute content.”
