Broadcast Pix Expands Flint Integrated Production Switcher Family

Billerica, Massachusetts – Broadcast Pix™ will unveil its expanded family of Flint™ end-to-end integrated production switchers at the 2014 NAB Show (Booth SL6325), which runs April 7-10 in Las Vegas, Nev. All three HD models include the same Fluent™ workflow software tools, but provide different input configurations to address different production requirements and budgets.

There are three new Flint models available. The entry-level system, Flint LE, supports three HDMI or analog (composite, component or S-Video) inputs and is now priced at $7,495. Flint LX features four SDI or HDMI inputs for $9,995. Flint LS supports six inputs and offers a choice of six SDI (two of which can be HDMI) or four SDI and two HDMI or analog inputs for $12,995. In addition, all three models include two additional network inputs, which are ideal for presentations and Web pages from remote computers. All three models are available now.

Broadcast Pix will also have two raffles during the NAB Show, providing attendees the opportunity to win a Flint system as well as a new fX3D real-time 3D graphics software package. Raffle rules and instructions will be available at the Broadcast Pix booth.

“Flint has quickly become a popular choice among streaming video professionals, because it provides a complete set of production tools for true end-to-end integration,” said Steve Ellis, general manager, Broadcast Pix. “By expanding the Flint family, we’re making it more affordable than ever to produce live multi-camera productions for broadcast or webcast.”

Introduced last year, Flint handles the entire production workflow, from ingest to distribution. In addition to cameras and file-based graphics and video, its multi-format production switcher allows operators to include cloud-based content from Skype, Twitter, RSS feeds, Google Drive, Dropbox and other resources during live productions. Flint ingests and scales all sources while maintaining constant lip sync.

Flint’s switcher also includes three keyers for layering, each with PiP and customizable DVE. An internal Inscriber CG provides six graphic channels, while a built-in, two-channel clip server stores up to 30 hours of clips and animations in a variety of file formats, including ProRes, H.264, DNxHD and QuickTime animations. Flint’s audio mixer is controlled through an intuitive audio interface with on-screen stereo faders and VU meters, and two outputs allow separate mixes with independent control for master recording and Web presentations.

With up to seven simultaneous output formats, Flint offers built-in HD streaming in a variety of formats and allows live recording on its internal hard drive. Other features include a customizable multi-view, customizable virtual sets, and control of robotic cameras, video servers, external audio mixers, and other devices.

Version 3.0 software, which was announced earlier this month, allows all Flint systems to be tightly integrated with Broadcast Pix’s new fX3D and ReVue multi-channel slow motion replay system. It also includes ClearKey, Broadcast Pix’s next generation chromakey, and new device control of Blackmagic HyperDecks. The software will be available in May as a free upgrade for all Flint systems under warranty.

Custom Media Solutions Relies on New FOR-A Switcher for High-Profile Live Event Production

Cypress, CA – Specializing in high-quality live and post production services, Custom Media Solutions has been depending on FOR-A video switchers to meet its production needs in recent years. The Georgia-based firm first purchased a FOR-A HVS-300HS switcher in 2011, bought an HVS-350HS switcher when theytransitioned to full HD, and later became a user of FOR-A’s HVS-XT110 portable switcher. The company recently selected a FOR-A HVS-390HS switcher for use with its wide-ranging video production applications, including live entertainment, conferences and corporate events.

“Some features of the HVS-300HS switcher that I really appreciate include the ability to scale on every input, a frame sync option on every input, and the DVE capabilities in every keyer,” said Marc Shroyer, owner and founder of Custom Media Solutions. “When we upgraded to HD, the obvious choice for us was to buy FOR-A’s HVS-350HS switcher. The unit was still offered in a small package, yet it came with some amazing features and flexibility. Some features that have helped us to deliver impressive results to low-budget events include its keying over AUX buses, transitioning events memory and use of a second remote control panel.”

Custom Media Solutions began using FOR-A’s HVS-390HS switcher at the end of 2013, and has been extremely pleased with their new unit’s flexibility and new features.

“What has been a big hit for us so far is the Web interface, larger control panel, additional half M/E when we use it with the HVS-300HS control panel, and the use of macros,” explained Shroyer.

One of the more challenging events produced by Custom Media Solutions with
FOR-A’s HVS-350HS switcher was for Hillsong UNITED, an Australian worship music group. Conferences highlighting their U.S. tour stops were held in New York City’s Radio City Music Hall and the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles last fall.

“The FOR-A switcher performed beautifully,” said Shroyer. “The client needed five different outputs with five different keys, all with the ability to transition, and they also needed to have all five screens change sources simultaneously by pushing one key. They wanted to turn multiple outputs with different sources to black and white with the push of a button. We could do this thanks to the mono color option built into the switcher’s keyers. The event was a complete success, and we saved our clients a lot of money by not having to use five different switchers to perform the tasks at hand. We just needed the one FOR-A switcher to get the job done right.”

Other productions that Custom Media Solutions has used FOR-A’s switchers for include: the Delta Chairman’s Club Banquet at the Fox Theater in Atlanta, Christian music artist Chris Tomlin’s tour, a conference at the University of Tennessee, Passion City Church events, DVD shoots for artists Montel Jordan and Hillsong UNITED, events at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, productions for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and North Point Community Church’s student camps.

“We’ve been continuously pleased with our FOR-A equipment and the quality it brings to our productions,” Shroyer explained. “Our switchers have helped us to provide our customers with top notch, cutting edge video productions at very competitive prices.”

New Broadcast Pix Software Upgrades Include Next Generation Chromakey, Dual-Channel Clip Server

Billerica, Massachusetts – Broadcast Pix™ will debut ClearKey, its next generation chromakey, as well as a dual-channel clip server and several other upgrades in its Version 4.0 software for Granite™ and Mica™ integrated production switchers. Available in May, the new software features will be demonstrated at the 2014 NAB Show (Booth SL6325), which runs April 7-10 in Las Vegas, Nev. The company also announced Version 3.0 software for its Flint™ end-to-end integrated production switchers, with most of the same upgrades.

Part of Broadcast Pix’s Fluent™ workflow software, ClearKey features precise, highly adjustable keying that can handle challenging visuals, such as glass or fast-moving or out of focus objects. Robust color correction removes the most stubborn spill from chromakeyed objects, which is important for virtual set use where color contamination is almost unavoidable. A key crop function can be used to confine the keying effect to certain areas of the screen.

ClearKey also creates more realistic shadow and lighting effects. Shine a spotlight on the background, for example, and it will shine on the virtual set as well. If a subject casts a shadow on the green or blue background, ClearKey can make the shadow appear on the virtual set, if desired. A simple eye dropper tool simplifies chromakey color selection, and intuitive controls make it easy to adjust lighting, shadow and spill correction effects.

The V4 upgrade includes a dual-channel clip server for Granite and Mica, which handles playback of SD and HD footage in a variety of file formats. (Flint already includes a dual-channel clip server.) Both upgrades add new device controls for Blackmagic Design HyperDeck Studio and Studio Pro video recorders, as well as all AJA Ki Pro recorders, over a TCP/IP connection. Clips can be recorded and played back from the PixPad, and all controls can programmed into a macro for simplified control. The new upgrades also include device control for Lumens VC-G50 and VC-G30 HD PTZ cameras. Plus, Fluent-View, Broadcast Pix’s customizable multi-view, includes a new snap-to-grid feature to make it easier to build new screen layouts.

“When Broadcast Pix has a major software release, you know we’ve listened to our customers and added some pretty significant improvements,” said Steve Ellis, general manager, Broadcast Pix. “ClearKey in particular represents a major step forward that will improve productions for customers who rely on virtual sets. It is highly adjustable but easy to operate – and it delivers outstanding results.”

Flint V3 and Granite/Mica V4 are free upgrades for all respective systems under warranty and will be available in May.

NAB 2014: FOR-A to Show New Version of FT-ONE 4K Variable Frame Rate Camera, Debut 4K Extraction System

Cypress, CA – At the upcoming NAB Show in Las Vegas, FOR-A will showcase a new version of its FT-ONE 4K super slow motion camera. The new version of the FT-ONE offers fiber I/O connections built directly into the unit for ease of use when shooting from the field. The company’s new ZE-ONE 4K extraction system will also be a highlight of the company’s booth (C5117), making its first NAB appearance.

“FOR-A is excited to showcase this new version of the FT-ONE camera and debut our ZE-ONE 4K extraction system at NAB,” said Hiro Tanoue, President, FOR-ACorporation of America. “We’re now offering the FT-ONE with fiber connections built into the unit, making it easier when the production calls for the camera to be used a far distance away from the base station. We’ll have a new replay controller for the ZE-ONE extraction system, which allows operators to frame and extract specified HD scenes at any size from 4K sources.”

Since its first introduction into the market in 2012, the FT-ONE has been used in a variety of sports broadcast and digital cinematography applications, including professional football, boxing, automobile racing, ice cross downhill, and wakeboarding events, as well as a NASA rocket launch. The camera has been the recipient of multiple industry awards, including a 2012 IBC Show STAR Award from TV Technology Europe, TVB Europe’s Best of IBC 2012 Award, and most recently, a 2013 Government Video Salute at GV Expo.

The FT-ONE employs FOR-A’s high-sensitivity CMOS color sensor, “FT1-CMOS,” and plays back full 4K (4096 x 2160 pixels). One output channel can provide QFHD (four 1080p 3G-SDI) outputs, while the other output channel provides down-converted HD-SDI for live viewing and play back. The FT-ONE captures images as uncompressed raw data on the system’s internal memory, which has a recording capacity of 9.4 seconds. This data is then stored on one of two hot-swappable SSD cartridges, each of which is capable of storing 84 seconds of full 4K resolution images at 900 fps.

First introduced at last year’s IBC Show, where it won a Best of IBC award from TVB Europe, the ZE-ONE allows FT-ONE users to frame and extract desired 4K image areas to capture the action for HD replays. The 4K extraction system provides operators with an intuitive touch-screen interface to frame and extract specified HD scenes at any size from 4K sources. The ZE-ONE allows users to smoothly zoom in or out, and includes an embedded audio delay processor.

U.S. Bank Arena Upgrades Hockey Coverage to HD with Broadcast Pix Granite X Integrated Production System

Billerica, Massachusetts – When Jim Plummer, technical director for the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, was shopping for a new production switcher at the 2013 NAB Show, he kept coming back to Broadcast Pixintegrated production switchers. His choice became even easier when he won a Flint™ system during the show, which the arena upgraded to a Granite™ X.

Home to the ECHL Cincinnati Cyclones, U.S. Bank Arena was built in 1975 had a major renovation in 1997, which included the installation of a Sony analog switcher with external DVE. As part of a 2013 upgrade to HD production, which also included new cameras and monitors, the new Granite was installed early last fall in time for the current hockey season.

According to Plummer, the downtown arena seats about 17,000 spectators and hosts more than 100 events per year, including concerts, NBA preseason games, and 36 Cyclones home games. The in-house, three-camera video production is primarily used for hockey coverage, as well as some preseason basketball games and some comedy concerts. A four-screen, center hung video board provides the most prominent view for fans during the game, but there are multiple small monitors throughout the concourse, suites, and on-site restaurant.

During each home hockey game, the director switches while a second operator coordinates graphics and roll-ins. “It works out very well for us,” Plummer explained. “With hockey, you don’t know when you’re getting a stop, so you have to set your cues and be ready to go.”

The control room team also houses light and audio operators, plus one person coordinating game operations and promotions.

U.S. Bank Arena uses several of the Granite’s 12 SDI outputs during productions. One delivers a feed of the high center camera to the coach’s office, where it is recorded for review. Another feed is recorded to DVD for league officials and the visiting team. Plus, the live game production is provided to America ONE Sports, an online provider of live and on-demand sports. “Those multiple outputs really help us out a lot,” Plummer said.

Most of the Granite’s built-in Fluent™ workflow tools have already been incorporated into productions. Granite’s clip, animation, and still stores have made it easy for Plummer and his team to incorporate graphics and sound effects for “Star Wars Night” and other themed events during the season. Plus, Fluent-View, the customizable multi-view, quickly became a favorite feature among the directors, who have created different layouts for hockey, basketball, and concerts.

The optional Fluent Rapid CG feeds score and game clock data directly from the Daktronics scoreboard into graphics produced with the integrated Harris Inscriber CG. Fluent Rapid CG also manages data from an XML feed, so lower-third graphics can include real-time player statistics. “It makes things so much easier,” Plummer added.

Fluent Macros, Granite’s file-based macros system, is being used to create complex transitions and effects. Some transitions, for example, now feature the Cyclones logo, an effect that could not be produced using the previous equipment. Plummer is also planning to incorporate cloud-based content such as Twitter feeds and Instagram pictures into live productions. “It’s something we couldn’t do before,” he said.

With more than half the hockey season complete, people are noticing the improved production values, and Plummer is very pleased with the new Broadcast Pix system. “We love it,” he said. “It does everything we want it to do. The more games we do, the more comfortable we’re getting and incorporating more into the production.”

Broadcast Pix will have two raffles during the 2014 NAB Show (Booth SL6325), which runs April 7-10 in Las Vegas, Nev. Attendees will have the opportunity to win a new fX3D real-time 3D graphics software package on April 8 and a Flint integrated production switcher on April 9. Raffle instructions will be available at the Broadcast Pix booth.
