Nova Entertainment Deploys Matrox Avio KVM Extenders in Audio Production Studios

Zero-latency, zero-compression Avio 125 KVM extenders transmit dual-HD video and multiple USB 2.0 signals to production studios 120 meters from control room

Matrox® Graphics Inc. today announced that Nova Entertainment recently deployed Matrox Avio™ F125 KVM extenders to transmit high-resolution, multi-display desktops in their production studios with computing resources centralized in a separate area. Nova Entertainment operates commercial radio networks broadcasting in metropolitan and regional areas and was looking to provide their audio engineers with an uncompromised remote audio production workflow. By selecting Avio F125 solutions to extend dual-HD video and multiple USB 2.0 signals, their engineers can now produce high-quality promotional spots and commercials without latency or interruption.

Nova Entertainment Deploys Matrox Avio KVM Extenders in Audio Production Studios

Housed in a master control room, Avio F125 transmitters attach locally to Apple® Mac Pro® workstations running Avid® Pro Tools® software. OM3 multi-mode fiber-optic cables connect Avio F125 transmitters to Avio F125 receiver units stationed in different audio production studios up to 120 meters away. At the operator location, each Avio receiver unit connects two 1920×1080 Samsung® monitors and high-speed USB 2.0 peripherals including a keyboard, mouse, CD/DVD burner, and external hard disc drive (HDD). According to Luke McKew, Technology Manager at Nova Entertainment, the new workspace allows users to productively record, edit, and mix the latest audio projects.

“Working off a higher-resolution setup makes it easier for the audio engineers to see small changes within the editing software, while the ability to quickly burn a CD or plug in an external HDD without having to walk back to the control room greatly improves workflow and efficiency,” said McKew. “We highly recommend Avio to other stations that are looking to upgrade or install KVM solutions for their own audio production facilities as it is a truly worthwhile investment.”

Matrox Avio KVM extenders will be demonstrated live at NAB Show (Las Vegas, April 7-10, booth SL5019) and InfoComm (Las Vegas, June 18-20, booth 2247).

Digital Alert Systems Expands Its Low-Cost EAS/CAP Systems With Two New Models for Low Power Stations

Designed for Low-Power Stations, New DASLC+ and DASLC+R Serve as Powerful All-in-One Solutions With Rich Functionality and Expanded Input Capacity

LYNDONVILLE, N.Y. — April 1, 2014 — Digital Alert Systems, a division of Monroe Electronics and provider of next-generation Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) and Emergency Alert Systems (EAS), today announced two new products that double the input capacity of the company’s DASDEC(TM)-II LC low-cost CAP/EAS systems giving low power stations more targeted solutions. The new DASLC+ and DASLC+R accept more monitoring source inputs while providing core EAS/CAP decoding functionality, audio switching, and radios in an all-in-one package. A new expansion slot on each model gives users room for future upgrades.

“Digital Alert Systems is always striving to develop and deliver specific DASDEC models that provide customers with the best possible value for their money while meeting all their requirements,” said Bill Robertson, vice president of business development at Digital Alert Systems. “The DASLC+ models complete our comprehensive product line, supplying the higher input capacity that many low-power stations require, without additional features — and costs — they don’t need. Starting from the DASLC at only $1,995 for an integrated EAS/CAP decoder, and now with the LC ‘Plus’ models, we are well-positioned to meet the requirements of each and every customer, from the newest low-power stations to the largest broadcast facilities.”

Like their two-input predecessors, both the DASLC+ and DASLC+R offer broadcasters critical functionality in a low-cost design, while the DASLC+R features three integrated high-performance AM/FM/NOAA radio receivers. Both models meet all FCC Part 11 rules and conform to FEMA CAP v1.2 and IPAWS 1.0 standards, giving most low-power stations everything they should need for FCC EAS compliance.

The DASLC+ and DASLC+R are easy to set up and easy to use. Because all required reports can be emailed to specific station personnel, who only need to check if the unit emails a problem or doesn’t send a weekly or monthly report, it’s almost a set-and-forget EAS/CAP solution. While a new expansion slot assures scalability, an optional software license key allows each unit to be upgraded for full encoder/decoder operation. Users also can choose to enable the video output in order to view a full-screen video display of the EAS/CAP message.

Further information about Digital Alert Systems and the company’s products is available at www.digitalalertsystems.com.

RTW Debuts New Masterclass PlugIns Series at 2014 NAB Show

RTW Loudness Tools First in New Range of RTW Masterclass PlugIns

COLOGNE, 2 APRIL, 2014 – RTW, a leading vendor of visual audio meters and monitoring devices for professional broadcast, production, post production and quality control, is pleased to announce the debut of its Masterclass PlugIns range at the 2014 NAB Show (C1246). The new software provides the company’s renowned metering tools as standard-format plug-ins for Windows and Mac OS platforms. The RTW Loudness Tools, scheduled for availability in May, will be the first of the company’s monitoring products available as part of the new range. This will allow a larger number of RTW customers to access its award-winning metering tools.

Each RTW Loudness Tools Masterclass PlugIn visually depicts audio with all relevant level and loudness values as specified by international standards. It conforms to the EBU R128 loudness standard, as well as SPL, ITU-R BS.1770-3/1771-1, ATSC A/85, ARIB, and custom (to set OP-59, AGCOM), making it ideal for audio and video engineers, radio producers and musicians, who are required by TV and radio broadcasters to conform to the standard. It is also a handy tool for quality control, offering the precision and ease of use required to ensure compliance with custom specifications. Operation of the plug-in is highly intuitive, so that even users without a great deal of experience in monitoring loudness can use it effectively.

The RTW Loudness Tools support all standard sampling rates up to 96 kHz and offer plug-in operation in mono, stereo and surround formats (eight channels maximum). The plug-in includes RTW’s Peak Program Meter, TruePeak, and Spot Correlator instruments and also offers all common loudness formats plus MagicLRA and an SPL view.

The user interface of the plug-in is based on the award-winning RTW TouchMonitor TM7 and TM9 units, and offers the same degree of functionality and clarity as the hardware models. The instruments provide graphical/numerical, as well as bargraph views, and can be freely rearranged and scaled. Various function parameters, such as integration time, operational range and tolerance, along with a number of viewing options for metering data and scales, offer extra flexibility. The plug-in window dimensions can be set to the native resolution of RTW TouchMonitor display screens, including 480×272, 800×480, 1024×800 (landscape view) or 272×480, 480×800, 800×1024 (portrait view). Users can store all setups and layouts as presets in their DAWs.

The RTW Loudness Tools Masterclass PlugIns require Windows 7/8 (32-bit or 64-bit) or Mac OS 10.6 or higher. RTW will first make them available in the VST 2.4 format for Windows systems and the RTAS format for Mac OS. VST, RTAS and native AAX64 support on the two platforms will follow. PACE anti-piracy and iLok USB copy-protection dongle are used for handling license management and plug-in activation. On an authorized computer, users can use unlimited RTW Loudness Tools instances.

RTW, based in Cologne (Germany), has more than 45 years of experience in designing, producing, and marketing advanced recording-studio systems. The company focuses its business on professional audio signal metering tools that are in use in the leading recording studios as well as by radio and TV broadcasters worldwide.

LynTec RPC Panel Selected for Power Control in Revamped Stony Brook Arena

Web-Enabled Circuit Control Panel Provides Reliable Electrical Protection in Large-Scale A/V Overhaul

LENEXA, Kan. — April 2, 2014 — LynTec, a leading manufacturer of customized electrical power control solutions for professional audio, video, and lighting systems, today announced that the company’s RPC (Remote Power Controller) panel with motorized breaker technology has been applied to the multimillion dollar renovation of Stony Brook University’s Stony Brook Arena. Using simple Web-enabled circuit control and reliable electrical protection, the cutting-edge athletics facility is able to power, protect, and easily manage the arena’s main audio system, scoreboards, and videoboards — creating one of the most advanced athletic and entertainment venues in the country.

Home to the Stony Brook Seawolves’ men’s and women’s basketball teams, the arena’s $21.1 million renovation is set to transform the venue into a 4,000-seat first-class facility, which will include luxury boxes, a VIP lounge area at the loge level, and new premium courtside seating for a variety of concerts, sporting competitions, and other large-scale events. To provide a performance-driven combination of advanced electrical protection and flexible third-party integration throughout the facility, a team of on-site integrators and designers turned to LynTec. The company’s RPC 342 panel, equipped with multiple motorized breakers, will bring automated power protection to the arena’s 23-amplifier audio system of 45,000 watts, two scoreboards, and two large videoboards. Wrightson, Johnson, Haddon & Williams, Inc. designed the facility’s entire A/V, broadcast, cabling, and distributed TV systems, and Advance Sound Company provided installation services.

“First installed in the seventies, the arena’s original system featured direct power feeds without any type of motorization, resulting in current in-rushes every time the system was turned on,” said Thomas DePace, Chief Operations Officer, Advanced Sound Company. “With the installation of a new world-class stadium entertainment system, Stony Brook needed an easy-to-use, fail-safe solution that would allow the activation of the arena’s entire range of amplifiers without causing any damage to the equipment. Considering LynTec’s track record for creating simple, flexible, and dependable electrical protection, the RPC was the obvious choice for this high-profile installation — allowing us to safeguard the entire system while enabling seamless Crestron control.”

LynTec’s RPC panel combines the latest motorized breaker technology with Web-enabled circuit control to provide a complete platform for managing installed audio, video, and lighting systems. Featuring real-time monitoring down to the circuit level and the capacity to use multiple control protocols simultaneously, the panel allows smart-device access to load-specified switch-grade motorized circuit breakers — providing built-in auto-off brownout protection using controlled circuit breaker shut-down and restart, optional sequential circuit level on/off capabilities, and the ability to interface with third-party control systems via contact closure, TCP/IP, DMX, or RS-232.

“As arenas, auditoriums, theaters, and other entertainment venues continue to implement impressive A/V/L systems, there is an increasing requirement to provide fail-safe protection and control in order to both safeguard and extend the life of components,” said Mark Bishop, president of LynTec. “Our RPC panel with motorized circuit breakers allows the Stony Brook Arena to protect their investment through automated on/off capabilities, while offering a wide range of flexible options such as remote control via Ethernet connection. LynTec is proud to be part of such a remarkable installation, and we look forward to similar collaborations in the future.”

The completely revamped Stony Brook Arena will be in full operation in Fall 2014. More information on the RPC panel and LynTec’s full line of products is available at www.LynTec.com.

Sonic Equipment Company Installs Its 1,000th Christie Projector

Christie®, a global leader in digital cinema technology, is proud to announce an impressive achievement from long-term partner, Sonic Equipment Company, which recently reached a milestone with the installation of its 1,000th Christie Solaria® Series DLP Cinema® projector.

Sonic’s reputation for providing current and future Christie customers with unparalleled technical support and maintenance has made them a popular and trusted provider of cinema sales, service and installation. The partnership has allowed the two companies to leverage each other’s strengths and resources in order to offer superior services to their customers, resulting in Sonic’s cumulative sale of more than 1,000 Christie projectors.

Christie Solaria 4K Digital Cinema Projector

“Our valued partnership with Sonic has proven to be integral to our objective of providing exhibitors with the breakthrough technology needed to create the bright, vivid images that movie-goers have come to expect,” said Craig Sholder, vice president, Entertainment Solutions at Christie. “Sonic’s success is our success and helps strengthen our leadership in the exhibition industry. Our partnership continues to grow as we blaze new digital trails with technologies that include High Frame Rate and the Christie Duo ‘big screen’ premium products. We also look forward to working with Sonic to debut such ‘coming attractions’ as the ground-breaking Christie ‘6-Primary’ laser projector.”

Christie’s wide range of affordable and innovative digital cinema projectors mapped perfectly with Sonic’s mission to help smaller theatre circuits and individual screen owners make the film-to-digital conversion, providing the same care in designing, installing and servicing theatre venues as the nation’s largest chains were enjoying. The result is that Sonic has an exceptional industry reputation as the ‘one-stop shopping’ cinema sales provider for hundreds of locations across America.

“The close relationship and positive experiences we have had working with Christie is a testament to Christie’s exceptional customer-centric approach to business, with products and service that are second to none,” said Eric Olson, director of operations for Sonic. “Most importantly, our partnership has been tremendously beneficial to our customers, many of whom have facilities that presented installation challenges due to the older nature of the buildings. Together with Christie we helped them achieve best-in-class cinema for the ultimate benefit of their audiences.”

CRM Studios Gains Efficiency with HRS Control’s UDC AJA Gang Control

Dallas-based video production company CRM Studios is using HRS Control’s AJA Gang Control features for its popular Universal Device Controller Software (UDC) to gain efficiency working with AJA Ki Pro Rack recorders on Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze broadcast network, and CRM Studios other broadcast projects.

CRM Studios is located in the historic Las Colinas Studios, once a vacant soundstage where in the past many movies and TV shows were shot. The Studios have been rebranded and reinvigorated to Mercury Studios, home of The Glenn Beck Radio Show, The Glenn Beck Show, Pat N Stu Show, and The Dana Show. The Studios are now home to a bustling and intimate portfolio of media entities currently requiring 10+ hours of multiple camera shoots across 3+ stages. CRM Studios is a radio and TV broadcast partner to Beck’s giant news, information and opinion media organization. Other productions CRM Studios create include Your Health, GameStopTV, Dillards and many others.

“Because of the tremendous workflow and turnaround time we have always used AJA Ki-Pro recorders,” says Michael Murray, director of IT and Broadcast Engineering at CRM Studios. “As we’ve grown we’ve been adding record decks, new cameras and feeds – there are lots of new sources. Traditionally, we would have upgraded to a media asset management system. But we were looking for a temporary alternative to shorten the workflow from shooting to editing to play-out. The process needed to be sped up quite a bit.”

Murray explains that the Ki-Pro hard drives used to be removed and walked to the edit bays where the media would be transferred so everyone in post would have access to it. “Media can be transferred over a network, too, but that requires a lot of steps and is much more time consuming,” he notes.

Enter AJA Gang Control for UDC Software, which allows users to take control of the full family of AJA products from the UDC Software and any tablet-, touch- or web-enabled device. AJA introduced Murray to UDC when it showcased UDC in their booth at NAB last year.

Cost-effective UDC AJA Gang Control provides AJA product users with the features that have made UDC Software so popular across the board: Macros, Web Server, Scheduling, Variables and Logic. Five custom controller interfaces are available for software or web server control; downloadable Apple iPad and Windows tablet apps are free of charge and the software works on Android through the web browser.

USB button panel controllers can be added to the software, and rack mount button panels are also available as well as desktop and wall mount touch controllers.

Several features are tailored specifically to the AJA Ki Pro family. Start/stop records on multiple Ki Pros can be triggered with a press of a button or automated by time of day. Customers can get clip lists and playlist information from multiple Ki Pros and load clips and play multiple Ki Pros.

UDC Ki Pro File Management permits simultaneous file transfers over the network on multiple files across multiple Ki Pros. File transfers for archiving to local or network drives can be activated by a press of the button or via time of day with UDC scheduling.

UDC AJA Gang Control now permits CRM Studio to “schedule and automate the media offload” for TheBlaze. “It’s significantly faster than doing it over FireWire, and there’s less chance of damaging media in transit,” says Murray. “UDC automates all the steps to offload with just the hit of a button. With UDC software we can send the media files info right from the Ki Pro Recorder hard drive directly to near line editing storage. UDC automates what would have taken an operator multiple steps to do.”

Consequently, the product is proving to be “a huge time saver” for CRM Studios, Murray says. “It not only schedules and records but also manages the assets we own – and it is less expensive than other solutions.”

Murray gives kudos to HRS Control, which “has been great – they’re more than helpful with demos and customer support,” he says. “HRS went out of the way to address all of our questions. I’d recommend UDC AJA Gang Control to everyone!”

High Resolution Systems known as HRS Control is a company with a strong systems engineering and applications background. Its founders have decades of experience in the audio visual rental and staging industry, broadcast applications, A/V installations and system design.

Digital Vision Extends OEM Partnerships with Marquise Technologies and SGO

Mist and Mistika Integrate Digital Vision Technologies

NAB 2014, Stand Sl6026 / Chairman’s Suite, Renaissance Hotel

(London, UK) – Digital Vision is pleased to announce two key OEM partnerships. Marquise Technologies will integrate Digital Vision’s DVO Image Enhancement and Restoration toolsets into MIST, while SGO‘s Mistika post-production system will support the stylish Precision control surface made by Digital Vision.

Peter Charles, Director of OEM Sales, Digital Vision says, “A key motivator behind our OEM strategy has always been to make great products better. Working with companies like Marquise and SGO validates that ethos, and we wish them every success.”
The task of content mastering is becoming more complex. It is very common to mix materials (e.g. 35mm scans with RAW data), and each format needs specific corrections or enhancements, such as de-grain, de-noise, re-grain or stabilisation. Having the ability to perform those enhancements directly within the mastering station via the DVO tools saves considerable time and increases productivity.

The first DVO tools to be integrated into MIST are DVO Camera and DVO Enhance; they will be available for demonstration at NAB 2014 on Marquise Technologies’ stand, SL12507. The complete package offer will be released after NAB.

The OEM agreement with SGO gives Mistika users an additional option when it comes to choosing the ‘human interface’ to drive Mistika’s powerful colour grading feature-set. While Mistika continues to support the Tangent Element panels, those who prefer the efficiency, quality, comfort and stature of a larger integrated control surface now have the option to use the Precision Panel.

The Precision Panel combined with Mistika integration will be available to order in Q3 2014, and a Precision Panel will be on display at SGO’s Booth SL9021 at NAB 2014.

About Digital Vision
Digital Vision is the supplier of the world’s best colour grading, restoration and film scanning solutions for the broadcast, film, commercial and archive industries. Founded in 1988 in Stockholm, Sweden, Digital Vision has offices in London, Los Angeles, New Zealand, and Linköping in Sweden.

Bexel to Showcase Unique Broadcast Solutions and Services at NAB 2014


(BURBANK, CA) – Bexel, a unit of the Vitec Group‘s Services Division and a leading worldwide provider of broadcast services and solutions has three focused business segments to optimize their offerings. Bexel Engineered Systems & Solutions (ESS) offers unique end-to-end solutions, including systems integration, fiber and infrastructure support. Bexel Technical Sales & Solutions (TSS) is a leading dealer of B-stock, new and used professional audio, video and fiber equipment sales. Bexel Rental Services & Solutions (RSS) provides a comprehensive resource for the latest broadcast equipment and technical services.

Bexel will be promoting RSS with a new Digital Cinema initiative, webcast solutions with Livestream and 4K production in Canon’s booth. ESS will show a remote analyst kit designed and built for Fox 1 Sports. Bexel will also be powering the live stage at the Vitec Videocom booth (C6025). The company offers systems and expertise for a wide range of broadcast needs, as well as fiber, wireless and audio integration, infrastructure services, production rentals, and new and used equipment sales.

Bexel offerings on display at NAB 2014 include the below:

* Powering the live stage at the Vitec Videocom village: The custom-designed control room duplicates a fully-functioning broadcast system typically used in studio environments. The centerpiece of this solution is Bexel’s Element Flypack, a compact and portable system that is pre-wired for any application, and can be configured with a variety of audio mixers, intercom, switchers and cameras. Presentations will take place hourly; and Bexel will take the stage on April 7, 8 and 9 from 4:15-4:45pm.

* Highlighting a growing inventory of 4K camera systems: Bexel will showcase a Sony PMW-F55 with a Fujinon Cabrio PL-mount lens, solidifying their commitment to investing in advanced camera and lens technology that broadcasters need. “We are dedicated to providing the expertise and equipment choices that satisfy a variety of shooters integrating HD video and cinema-style options,” says Tom Dickinson, CTO of Bexel. “To do that, we are broadening our PL-mount camera and lens inventory. The Sony F55 gives our clients great shots that look like film, and the ability to be more creative, particularly when paired with the Fujinon Cabrio PL lenses.”

* Over at Canon U.S.A., a leader in digital imaging solutions, Bexel’s Hercules HD Flypack will play a pivotal role in the simulation of a live 4K broadcast truck located at the booth (C4325). Bexel collaborated with Canon on the system, which utilizes Canon’s C-500 4K camera systems along with an Evertz Dreamcatcher 4K server unit. This simulation demonstrates Bexel’s capabilities for bringing the high-demand environment of live broadcasts to any location.

* Bexel ESS engineers will be available to discuss new and recently completed projects including fiber optic integration for the venues at the 2014 sporting events at Sochi; a massive fiber install at Beaver Creek, Colorado for the 2015 World Championships of Skiing; as well as other optical fiber solutions. Also broadcast systems including a unique self-contained, crewless home studio for some of FOX Sports 1′s top talent, which were permanently installed earlier this year in the analysts’ homes, allowing them to go on air immediately when something pertaining to their specialty occurs. FOX Sports 1 simply connects into any of the in-home studios via a bonded T1 pair, and goes live with HD quality video.

Bexel’s latest slate of high-profile events in support of major broadcasters includes on-site production, fiber infrastructure and engineering support for the days of live coverage leading up to Super Bowl XLVIII, as well as FOX Sports’ pre-game coverage and the big game. Support for other live events range from the Oscars(r) red carpet and telecast, NCAA basketball, and the upcoming World Cup among others.
