Renewed Vision ProVideoPlayer 2 Delivers High-Impact Multiscreen Presentations for Watermark Church

Dallas-based worship organization enhances services, reduces costs with Renewed Vision software

DALLAS, September 10, 2014
Watermark Community Church, a prominent biblical community with a worship presence in three Texas cities, has chosen Renewed Vision’s ProVideoPlayer 2 (PVP2) to create dynamic, high-impact multiscreen video presentations at its 3,500-seat Dallas worship center. The PVP2 installation is a significant element of a larger technology upgrade, which includes a dedicated fiber network to connect its Dallas location with a 500-seat worship center in Fort Worth; and a third worship center opening in Plano in early 2015.

Les Brown, technical director for Watermark Community Church in Dallas, was seeking a reliable and affordable solution to replace a six-year-old Green Hippo media playback server, which reached end of life and could no longer be upgraded. He researched PVP2 following recommendations from media technicians at other houses of worship and drew on his experience using another Renewed Vision product, ProPresenter 5 softwareimage. Brown notes that ProPresenter has performed flawlessly for years, displaying biblical passages, song lyrics and other media content during services.

“We were confident that PVP2 would perform reliably to foster an inspirational worship experience for everyone,” Brown said. ”PVP2 has played a significant role in our overall upgrade plan, and offers us tremendous cost-savings. It is a fraction of the cost of competing solutions.”

Beyond its reasonable price point, Watermark Church benefits from long-term cost-savings based on its simple configuration and interoperability. Watermark Church has configured PVP2 to run on a Mac Pro, which outputs five video signals to a bank of digital video projectors, including two Christie and three Barco units. PVP2 can be programmed to deliver a different display to each of the five screens or a single display that spans all five screens, as well as a combination of displays in a single presentation.

The decision to buy PVP2 followed a successful software trial that Watermark conducted on Easter 2014. The special musical performance, which featured the house band, soloists, and back-up singers, leveraged PVP2 to project a single video across five separate large displays above the stage. The video, which featured song lyrics, graphics and particle smoke, was created in After Effects to allow the visual elements to use all five screens as if they were one display. Since the band was performing to a click-track, the lyrics would appear on the video in perfect synchronization with the vocalists.

Brown currently controls PVP2 using a Barco FSN router during services, but plans to integrate PVP2 with the church’s DMX lighting control system. This will enable the lighting director to control and synchronize the PVP2 video displays with other staging elements, like theatrical lighting and music, according to pre-programmed cues.

“The Mac Pro’s ability to output five streams at once saves us considerably on additional computer hardware, and we can make the most of our PVP2 investment since the system is easy to maintain and upgrade,” Brown said. “Reliability was a chief concern as we’ll use a DMX lighting board will control the PVP2, and won’t have a second system to cut to in the event of a technical problem. It’s been running reliably since deployment, and we’re confident we can transition to DMX integration.”

PVP2 now sits alongside a professional array of gear across Watermark Church’s infrastructure, including a professional production switcher and multi-resolution broadcast cameras. Viewers can access streaming media of the Dallas worship services at www.live.watermark.org from anywhere using their connected devices.

D-Tools and SupplyStream Form Strategic Partnership

Joint collaboration establishes standards for Data Management and Categorization for manufacturers, distributors and integrators – future integration of respective software solutions to streamline workflow for AV integrators

CONCORD, CA and DENVER, CO – SEPTEMBER 10, 2014 — D-Tools, Inc., the worldwide leader in system integration software, and SupplyStream, the leading web based product catalog  and industry purchasing platform today announced the formation of a strategic partnership that will  establish new standards for product specification gathering, categorization, management, and publishing to help streamline data management for manufacturers, distributors and integrators of audio video systems. The partnership will also focus on the integration of data and workflow for future versions of the D-Tools System Integrator software platform and SupplyStream’s online catalog and purchasing platform.

The management and publishing process for manufacturer product information is often manually executed and time-consuming, riddled with duplicate efforts and void of any set standards for nomenclature, categories, and sub-categories. One of the primary goals for the D-Tools and SupplyStream partnership is to establish a set of standards that can be used by both industry manufacturers and the dealers and integrators who ultimately utilize this information to specify, purchase, and resell products to their clients.

Furthermore, the integration of this product information into the D-Tools and SupplyStream solutions will ultimately benefit both manufacturers and dealers, as it will provide the basis for an end-to-end process for effective research, specification, design, procurement, and installation of low-voltage audio video systems.

“We’re pleased to work with the team at SupplyStream and are confident that this collaborative effort will make it easier for everyone in the industry to manage, categorize and publish product data,” says Adam Stone, President and CEO of D-Tools. “As pioneers of the data management process we understand the challenges manufacturers, distributors, and integrators face with regard to standardized management and communication of ever-changing product information.”

In addition to standards for data management, the strategic partnership will pursue ways to integrate the two industry-first software platforms in ways that users of both will benefit from. The goal of integration will be to further streamline AV integrator workflow, making it easier for integrators to manage their data and run their businesses. Stone explains, “Our software platform has facilitated a more efficient process for thousands of integrators over the years and we look forward to working with the team at SupplyStream as we discuss how to further improve the industry data and integration company processes moving forward.”

“It makes so much sense for us to partner with D-Tools and work collectively to make dealers’ lives easier. Our visions and dedication to the dealer experience are perfectly aligned. Not only will we work together with manufacturers to make industry data cleaner and more consistent, but we are also discussing how best to share our technologies so the dealer experience can extend across both of our platforms,” says SupplyStream Founder and CEO, Kirk Chisholm.

D-Tools will be previewing the latest version of its award-winning solution, System Integrator 2015 at CEDIA (booth #526), featuring new Mobile installation functionality. D-Tools will also be announcing the winners of the 2014 D-Tools Design Awards at the booth on Friday, September 12th at 3:00 P.M. MT. Dealers can register to win an iPad Mini and $500 towards D-Tools software.

SupplyStream will officially launch their web-based dealer purchasing platform out of beta at CEDIA Expo (Booth #1264). Dealers who stop by the booth can get a personal, live demonstration of the SupplyStream powered product catalog and industry purchasing platform.

STEWART FILMSCREEN ELEVATES RESIDENTIAL THEATER TO COMMERCIAL DIGITAL CINEMA LEVEL WITH “THE 4K+ ULTRA HD EXPERIENCE THEATER” DEMONSTRATION AT CEDIA EXPO 2014

Stewart and Quantum Media Systems partner to provide 4K Ultra HD private theater packages that include advanced Digital Cinema projectors, uncompressed native 4K content, and highly specialized Stewart four-way masking screens

TORRANCE, CA and DENVER, CO – CEDIA BOOTH #136 – SEPTEMBER 10, 2014– Stewart Filmscreen Corp., the leading international manufacturer of projection screens and specialty optical coatings for residential and commercial applications—and the only manufacturer in the category that has been producing 4K+ products since 1947—is thrilled to bring CEDIA Expo attendees some of the best and most immersive visual experiences on the show floor. In collaboration with Quantum Media Systems, Stewart Filmscreen will present “The 4K+ Ultra HD Experience Theater” in booth #136 at the Colorado Convention Center September 11-13, in Denver, Colo.

Quantum Media Systems specializes in creating 4K private theater systems that go beyond typical home theater setups. Exclusively featuring Stewart Filmscreen projection screens, Quantum Media Systems Digital Cinema packages also include commercial-grade Digital Cinema projectors, proprietary Quantum Media Systems servers, and native and uncompressed 4K content for both first-run and home video releases, plus more. The 20’x24’x14’ 4K+ Ultra HD Experience Theater in Stewart Filmscreen’s booth at CEDIA Expo will feature an integrated Quantum Media Digital Cinema system that includes:

·  A 15-foot wide 1.78:1 Stewart Filmscreen Director’s Choice screen.

·  4K Commercial-grade Digital Cinema projectors.

·  Multiple servers running a wide variety of specialized uncompressed native 4K content utilizing the motion picture standard, JPEG 2000 codec.

“The video quality we are achieving in this space is so incredible, we hesitate to even call it ‘home theater’, which could be something as simple as a TV and a pair of speakers. These systems deserve the moniker private theater, because they have the same quality you’d find in a commercial 4K Digital Cinema, in a residential environment,” says Ken Hoffman, CEO of Quantum Media Systems. “Best yet, these systems are available to integrators right now.”

Quantum Media Systems uses standards practiced in commercial Digital Cinemas to deliver the 4K viewing experience, including 10-12 bit DCI P3 color space, DCP delivery (the method for delivering first-run Digital Cinema movies to commercial theaters), high dynamic range, JPEG 2000 encoding, and more. Stewart Filmscreen is used exclusively for these applications as the screens provide superior resolution and pixel density.

“We selected Stewart for Quantum Media Systems Digital Cinema packages because Stewart Filmscreen is not only a household name, it has a rich legacy of manufacturing 4K screen solutions that goes all the back to 1947. Because Stewart works closely with the Hollywood community, the company uniquely understands the complex technologies involved in our offering and delivers best-in-class screens that are ideally suited to the next-level residential theaters dealers are creating,” furthered Hoffman.

Those interested in experiencing, delivering, and learning more about the best possible visual experience are encouraged to connect with the Stewart Filmscreen team, Ken Hoffman, CEO of Quantum Media Systems, or Cesar Guererro, Director of Technology, while visiting the Stewart Filmscreen 4K+ Ultra HD Experience Center at CEDIA Expo in booth #136.

DK-Technologies Appoints Anders Kjempff As New Sales and Marketing Director

DK-Technologies has announced the appointment of Anders Kjempff to the position of Sales and Marketing Director, with responsibility for promoting the company’s range of audio and video metering products including the award winning DK Meter. He will be based at DK-Technologies’ head office in Herlev, Denmark.

Kjempff brings extensive management experience to the role having previously run his own IT sales company, which he sold earlier this year. Prior to that he spent nine years with broadcast transmission company ProTeleVision Technologies (PTV) where he was Sales and Strategy Director.

Karsten Hansen, CEO of DK-Technologies, says: “There is a real sense of ‘Sliding Doors’ about Anders’ appointment because, in a parallel dimension, he should have joined the company in 2001 when DK bought the Studio Products Division of PTV. At that stage he was working for the part of the company that we didn’t buy, and that’s why he didn’t come across then. I am really delighted that our paths have finally come together. Anders has so much industry experience and is such a consummate sales and marketing professional that this is really great news for the future of DK-Technologies.”

Commenting on his appointment, Anders Kjempff adds: “I have known about DK-Technologies for many years and have always admired its approach to product design and development. DK products are conceived from a blank sheet of paper – there are no third party algorithms or components because everything is designed from scratch with no compromise. That is why the company has such a strong international reputation for quality. I am delighted that I am now part of this because I share the same values. Coming to DK really does feel like coming home.”

Under Kjempff’s guidance, DK-Technologies will be looking to promote its world class products and expand its sales network on a global scale.

Nipros Helps RED Display The Realties of Live 4K Production At IBC

IBC2014 CONVENTION, AMSTERDAM— Following a successful collaboration at the NAB Convention in April, RED Digital Cinema has re-enlisted Samaserve’s CTO Sal Sandoval to engage the Nipros LS-750GT and LS 750 camera-mounted fiber adapter system for a live 4K Production demonstration, the first of its kind, at the IBC 2014 Show.

On Saturday, September 13th, a milestone technology demonstration will kick off the IBC Show between 10:00 and 11:30 am. Entitled “One Camera, 6K Digital Stills & Motion, 4K Broadcast?” the unique session is being held during Red Digital Cinema’s presentation at the RAI Auditorium. The goal is to illustrate how Red’s 6K Dragon sensor—boasting over 19 megapixels, a new color science, higher dynamic range and the highest DxO Mark sensor rating ever—can support live (3840 x 2160 resolution) broadcasts. The live 4K broadcasts will include real-time graphics from Vizrt while simultaneously capturing 6K R3D RAW (4096 x 2160 resolution) masters. RED Digital Cinema is located at IBC booth (10.A10 – Hall 10).

The Nipros LS-750GT fiber adapter system will facilitate the transmission of compressed and uncompressed, up to 4K, video from a RED EPIC DRAGON Cinema Camera to the RAI Convention Center’s main auditorium over fiber-optic cable (ensuring high quality signal delivery). The RED EPIC DRAGON will also provide live 4K feeds produced at the Vizrt booth (7.A10 – Hall 7) “Virtual Studio” set throughout the show

“We needed a comprehensive camera system capable of flawlessly transmitting uncompressed 4K and HD signals simultaneously for display on a large, high res screen. The specs on the Nipros System meet all of our requirements, and we are very pleased to be using it as part of our series of IBC demos,” says Jarred Land, President of Red Digital Cinema.

The flagship, Nipros LS-750/GT camera-mounted fiber adapter system, supports virtually any 4K camera. The system acquires and faultlessly passes simultaneous uncompressed 4K and HD signals for distances of up to 1.24 miles with the option of distances beyond 6.2 miles. The LS-750/GT offers users five 3G SDI streams directly out of the camera, as well as one return 3G/HD-SDI/SD-SDI signal. All types of 4K plus HD, or five separate HD streams, can be transported simultaneously, with the ability to mix the five asynchronous 3G/HD/SD streams independently.

“The Nipros System was a primary catalyst for my partners and I forming Samaserve,” Sandoval says. “Earning this level of support at so early a stage in the introduction of an important new system is critical. We are extremely pleased to have earned RED’s trust to support their DRAGON Cinema Camera Demos. The camera agnostic Nipros systems will also be on the job at the Canon Europe Ltd. Booth (11.E50 – Hall 11), and at the Ross Video Ltd. Booths (9.C10, 9.B08, 9.C23 – Hall 9, Hall 0),” Sandoval concludes.

Sound Devices Introduces FileSafe into Rack-Mounted Video and Audio Recorders

New Mission-Critical Technology Protects Video and Audio Recordings from Unintentional Drive Removal and Power Loss

AMSTERDAM, SEPTEMBER 9, 2014 – Sound Devices (IBC Show: Hall 8, Stand B59) introduces its unique FileSafe™ technology as part of its 2.02 firmware release for its multi-drive, network connected video and audio rack-mounted recorders. Incorporated into the Video Devices PIX products, including the 270i, 260i and 250i, as well as the Sound Devices 970, FileSafe recovers video and audio files if, during recording, drives are unintentionally removed or power is lost.

“Pulling a drive mid-recording with a Windows, MAC or other hardware-based recording system will most likely result in corrupted files,” says Dan Desjardins, Software Development Manager at Sound Devices. “It’s taken some clever engineering to make FileSafe work, especially with high bandwidth ProRes and DNxHD video files.”

During recording, data is written to a proprietary Sound Devices file format optimized for high-data rate, real-time video and audio recording. Video Files have an ‘.sdv’ file extension and audio files have an ‘.sda’ file extension. When a recording ends, files are automatically “finalized” by converting the ‘.sdv’ files to QuickTime movie files and the ‘.sda’ files become ‘.wav’ files. This process typically only takes a couple of seconds. In the event that files cannot be finalized, whether due to power loss or inadvertent drive disconnection, they still remain intact on the drive. These files are recovered simply by inserting the drive back into a Sound Devices or Video Devices rack-mounted recorder. Each time a drive is mounted, the recorder automatically scans for unfinalized files and finalizes them.

In the absence of a Sound Devices or Video Devices rack-mount recorder, the FileSafe MAC or PC utility, which is available as a free download http://www.sounddevices.com/products/filesafe/, can be used to recover unfinalized files. Simply connect the PIX drive caddy via Firewire, USB or eSATA to the computer, open the utility and point it to the drive’s directory path containing the unfinalized files and click ‘Scan and Finalize.’

“Providing our customers with mission-critical product performance and reliability has always been a top consideration as we continue to develop the Sound Devices and Video Devices product lines,” says Paul Isaacs, VP of Marketing and Product Design. “FileSafe is yet another example of our commitment to this design philosophy.”

In addition to FileSafe, the new 2.02 firmware release includes longer file-splitting options, RS-422 control improvements and enhanced metadata editing.

Video Devices’ PIX line of rack-mounted products, PIX 270i, 260i and 250i, are a complete offering addressing a range of multiple-source video productions, including fast-paced, mission-critical studio applications, live sports and events and mobile production. Video Devices recorders offer significant advantages and time-savings for production workflows, providing tapeless, file-based recording and playback with the ability to access and transfer high-quality files over Ethernet. The units record edit-ready Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD files, and allow simultaneous multiple-drive recording, giving production staff rock-solid redundancy and backup capabilities.

A powerful tool for professionals requiring a significant number of audio channels, Sound Devices’ first-ever dedicated audio-only rack-mounted solution, the 970, records 64 channels of monophonic or polyphonic 24-bit WAV files from any of its 144 available inputs. Inputs available include 64 channels of Ethernet-based Dante, 64 channels of optical or coaxial MADI, eight channels of line-level analog and eight channels of AES digital. Any input can be assigned to any track. In addition, 32-track recording at 96 kHz is supported. The 970 records to any of four attached drives, which include two front-panel drive bays and two rear-panel e-SATA connected drives. Material can be recorded to multiple drives simultaneously or sequentially. This eliminates time-consuming post-record copying and allows for continuous long-form, high-track count recordings.

The Video Devices PIX recorders and Sound Devices 970 all feature the company’s proprietary PowerSafe technology. PowerSafe circuitry has a built-in 10-second power reserve. In the event of power loss, the unit continues to operate for up to 10 seconds, then stops any file operation and shuts down. This ensures that a complete power loss has no effect on the recording.

Sound Devices, LLC designs and manufactures portable audio mixers, digital audio recorders and related equipment for feature film, episodic television, documentary, news-gathering, live event and acoustical test and measurement applications. Video Devices, a brand of Sound Devices, produces digital video recorders and related products that address a range of multiple-source video productions, including fast-paced, mission-critical studio applications, live sports, live events and mobile production.

Founded in 1998, the company designs and manufactures both brands from their Reedsburg, Wisconsin headquarters with additional offices in Madison, WI. For more information, visit the Sound Devices and Video Devices websites, www.sounddevices.com; www.videodevices.com.

Autoscript to Launch E.P.I.C. 19 at IBC

New integrated teleprompter and talent monitor brings versatility to studio environment

Twickenham, UK (September 9, 2014) - Autoscript, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company, has announced the launch of E.P.I.C. 19, a 19-inch Enhanced Prompting Information Centre. Based on the 17-inch E.P.I.C., the world's first fully integrated prompting and on-air system, the E.P.I.C. 19 has been developed for use in large studios that have a requirement for a smart system to display prompter text and transmission images to talent.

The E.P.I.C. 19 features dual SDI inputs as standard, one for the prompter monitor and the other for the talent monitor, and an integrated tally light. The 19-inch LED prompter monitor is backlit, while the super thin on-air monitor delivers crisp and clear images to talent.

By combining both monitors in the same system, the E.P.I.C. 19 is more lightweight, and the requirement for additional components is eliminated. There is no need for an additional mounting assembly for the talent monitor, and despite the size of the display, the E.P.I.C. 19 enables camera operators to make use of full camera tilt.

"The E.P.I.C. integrated solution brings added versatility and functionality to studio operations," says Robin Brown, product manager of Autoscript. "In addition, the system is energy efficient due to the high-bright LEDs, and the long life of the prompting screen ensures durability and long-term cost savings."

The E.P.I.C. 19 features inputs for both LTC and VITC and can therefore display time code and tally functions via Autoscript's ClockPlus-E and TallyPlus-E.

"We will also be releasing the TallyPlus-E at IBC. It displays the camera number and tally state, and clips into place on the front of both the 17- and 19-inch E.P.I.C. models. It requires no external power or cabling, taking all its data internally via the E.P.I.C., to further simplify the prompting system," concludes Brown.

Both the E.P.I.C. 19 and TallyPlus-E will be in action at IBC at the Autoscript stand 11.E55 in hall 11.
