Hitachi Unveils CP-WU13K DLP Projector

CHULA VISTA, California, April 10, 2014 – Delivering a high-performance, 3G SDI-ready projector with a dynamic feature set and broadcast capability, Hitachi America, Ltd., Digital Media Division, Business Solutions Group is introducing its Professional Series CP-WU13K DLP projector. The Hitachi CP-WU13K projector offers 13,000 lumens brightness plus advanced functionality and flexible installation features, making it ideal for large auditoriums, broadcast applications, conference rooms, museums, and concert or stage productions.

The CP-WU13K is 3D-ready, incorporates four digital inputs for added versatility and broadcast capability, plus a high-performance filter reducing dust sticking to critical components. For even greater image quality, the CP-WU13K features 3-chip DLP technology and is equipped with 3G SDI. A standard in the broadcast industry, 3G SDI can transfer 1080p signal via coaxial cable.

The CP-WU13K offers DICOM® (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) Simulation Mode, which projects grayscale images to approximate DICOM Part 14 specifications. This mode is ideal for viewing grayscale medical images, such as X-rays, for training and educational purposes. The CPWU13K is also equipped with edge-blending functionality, which achieves the seamless projection of one image using multiple projectors. A specialized application also offers geometric correction, making projection possible on spherical surfaces and surfaces with corners, as well as conventional flat screens.

The CP-WU13K features motorized zoom, focus and lens shift control allow for a greater range of installation possibilities, enabling users to make fine adjustments via remote control or an RS232/IP device. In addition, six optional lenses are available with the CP-WU13K for even greater versatility.

With Hitachi’s Picture by Picture function, content from two sources can be displayed simultaneously, side by side on one screen. Any two sources can be used, including two HDMI sources, with both images sharing equal screen size. This is ideal for teleconferencing applications. Meanwhile, Hitachi’s Picture in Picture function enables users to display one image inside another image using any two sources. The CP-WU13K also features Hitachi’s Perfect Fit 2 image adjustment system, which corrects for any geometric image distortion and precisely fits the images to the screen or tabletop.

The CP-WU13K is equipped with a highly reliable dual lamp system, meaning if one lamp stops functioning during use, the second lamp activates and projects the image with no interruption in the projection. In addition, 24 hours of continuous operation is available with the Alternative Mode, which alternates the use of the two lamps. Embedded networking technology offers the ability to manage and control multiple projectors over a LAN connection. Also, Hitachi’s PJMessenger function allows text messages and audio alerts to be sent on all networked projectors throughout an entire campus or facility.

The CP-WU13K is backed by a 3-year warranty and Hitachi’s world-class service and support programs.

Bexel and Riedel Communications Take Flight with Collaborative Offering

Bexel’s Falcon Sportscaster Unit to Feature New Riedel AVB Interface

Bexel Used Sales: NAB Booth #N1205
Riedel Communications: NAB Booth #C4937

(LAS VEGAS, NV) – Bexel, a unit of the Vitec Group‘s Services Division and a leading worldwide provider of broadcast services and solutions, announced a new, collaborative offering with Riedel Communications at NAB 2014. Bexel’s Falcon Sportscaster Unit will now feature an AVB (audio-video bridge) interface, developed by Riedel. The optional AVB capability provides direct digital network connectivity to the announcer in the most advanced media network architecture available.

The Falcon is able to satisfy all of the demands of professional sportscasters and audio operators with its unique, interchangeable nature. The unit’s inherent flexibility can accommodate a variety of interface connectivity solutions to meet a customer’s specific needs, and now broadcasters will be able to utilize the state-of-the-art Riedel AVB interface, as the Falcon is not bound to a singular solution for connectivity.

“With Riedel, we are working with a partner company that is dynamic, resourceful and innovative,” said Andrew McHaddad, chief audio engineer, Bexel. “This collaboration is a perfect fit for everyone involved, but especially for our customers. We pride ourselves on being a leader in the sportscaster equipment market with our Falcon platform. Working with a technology-driven company like Riedel strengthens our offerings and improves users’ experiences.”

Riedel, a provider of pioneering real-time video, audio, data and communications networks, approached Bexel about partnering on an AVB interface for the Falcon.

“It has been very rewarding to work with Bexel on this new AVB application,” said Christian Diehl, product manager for Riedel Communications. “We are very interested in furthering the usage of AVB globally, and this single-cable option for the Falcon is a perfect application for it.”

The new Riedel AVB option allows a single CAT-5 cable to connect to an AVB network carrying all five audio signals: broadcast microphone, Talk-Back #1, Talk-Back #2, IFB left, IFB right and power. All audio signals exist on the network as data, with all AD/DA conversions occurring within the Falcon unit. Powered through the network connection, this version provides the highest density of capability in the smallest footprint available in the marketplace.

“Riedel is a leader in technological innovations, and our new AVB interface brings their exciting work into the sportscaster equipment market,” concluded McHaddad. “It has been a rewarding experience working with the team from Riedel, and we are already looking forward to further collaborations.”

Tekserve Makes Shared 4K Broadcast Production a Reality at NAB 2014


Tekserve to Demonstrate Complete Video Workflows Leveraging the Extreme Bandwidth of the NetApp E-Series and EF550 Storage Arrays

LAS VEGAS, APRIL 7, 2014 – Tekserve, a leading provider of technology solutions for creative professionals in a variety of markets, will demonstrate a complete video workflow solution at NetApp’s NAB booth (SL9510), featuring the new NetApp E-5500 series and EF550 all-flash array.

The joint demonstration will highlight 4K 60 frame-per-second (high frame rate) acquisition and playback. Region-of-interest control enables replay of an HD-sized frame from within the acquired 4K content. A joystick controls frame position, pan and tilt during slo-mo playback. The extreme performance and enterprise-grade reliability of the NetApp E-5500 series and EF550 all-flash array, when used with ATTO Technology Celerity 164E quad-channel PCIE 3.0 host bus adapter card running Multi-path Director software, makes shared 4K productions a reality.

“We are thrilled to be a part of the NetApp booth, sharing this technologically advanced broadcast solution with NAB attendees,” says, Matthew Cohen, Principal, Tekserve. “Not only does this concept demonstrate our ability to work with our broadcast customers for customized workflow consulting, but also demonstrates the benefits of working with multiple vendors to pool the right resources in order to define the most accurate workflow technology for a project.”
With density and modular flexibility for the widest range of data-intensive workloads, NetApp’s new E-Series controllers are plug and play with the existing line of modular chassis holding 12, 24, or 60 drives. These chassis can be configured with SAS, NL-SAS or SATA hard disk drives or SSDs. In addition, hybrid architectures can mix types in a single enclosure. NetApp’s EF550 all-flash array can independently scale compute and capacity up to 96TB at 450K IOPS with less than one millisecond latency.

“NetApp welcomes Tekserve at our NAB booth this year,” says Jason Danielson, Solutions Marketing Manager, Media and Entertainment Solutions at NetApp. “We are proud to showcase how our new E-5500 series and EF550 all-flash array offers the external storage solution necessary to fully complement the video workflows Tekserve is implementing for their customers. Attendees are welcome to join us for a glimpse of it in action.”
Designed to support the recording and distribution from 4K sources for ROI HD extraction using AJA’s TruZoomTM application and Corvid Ultra hardware with TruScaleTM card’s superior scaling technology for live-action sports broadcasts; a version of the complete Tekserve workflow solution was first used earlier this year during a major U.S. sports broadcast.

Yamaha NUAGE Version 1.5 Announced Today

LAS VEGAS—In response to an overwhelmingly positive reaction, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. has announced Version 1.5 software of the NUAGE Advanced Production System. Available in May via free download, the new version will allow remote control of R Series audio interface head amplifiers from NUAGE Fader/Master control surfaces. In addition to providing a broader selection of I/O options for NUAGE systems, the software also allows Yamaha CL Series Digital Mixing Console inputs to be shared via a Dante network for significant system expansion capability.

Although NUAGE already allows switching between up to three different DAWs, with V1.5 the “NUAGE PT Bridge” driver for Avid Pro Tools control gains OSX 10.9 compatibility so that Pro Tools running on Mac platforms is fully supported. Also, adding Quick Control to the NUAGE Master unit, specified parameters can be assigned to the multi-function display so the user has even greater customization control. The NUAGE Master unit now has the ability to instantly access a vast range of VST instruments from the display and knobs for more efficient, effective sound crafting. The multi-function knobs will also provide as much as 512 times finer control than has been available in the Fine Mode.

“All of the powerful refinements in NUAGE V1.5 add up to enhanced efficiency and improved workflow for end users,” states Marc Lopez, marketing manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. “With ongoing feedback from the field, NUAGE will continue to evolve as the new standard for DAW system performance.”

Launched in 2012, the flexible NUAGE system features tight DAW software integration, groundbreaking operability, modular architecture, and Dante networking capability. NUAGE systems are currently being installed in audio post-production and recording facilities around the world.

For more information on NUAGE V1.5, visit Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. at NAB 2014, booth #C2143 or on the web at www.yamahaca.com.
