Riedel Real-Time Media Network and Intercom System Support Broadcast and Comms for European Elections

DB Video, Host Broadcaster of the 2014 European Parliament Elections in Brussels, Relies on Riedel MediorNet, Artist, and RockNet Systems for Stable, Flexible Signal Transport

WUPPERTAL, Germany — July 15, 2014 – Riedel Communications, provider of pioneering real-time video, audio, data, and communications networks, today announced that the European Parliament employed a large-scale MediorNet real-time media network and Artist digital matrix intercom system to meet the signal transport requirements of the 2014 European Parliament elections in Brussels. During the weeks surrounding the May 25 elections, the fiber-based Riedel installation provided a flexible and redundant network for HD video, audio, and broadcast-quality intercom signal management, routing, and processing.

“For this ‘mother of all elections,’ we needed a dependable and very versatile network to support all broadcast and communications requirements,” said Michel Melotte, technical video coordinator for DB Video, which provided the complete Riedel system for the elections as well as all broadcast sets and audiovisual facilities. “We have used Riedel equipment on big events like Tomorrowland TV and were familiar with its power and flexibility, and we knew that we could deploy it to create a decentralized matrix with signals available throughout the whole network. Thus, despite the fluid, fast-paced nature of elections coverage, we ultimately were able to accept any signal, process it as needed, and deliver a quality output to any point on the network.”

The large-scale system installed within the parliament buildings by DB Video for the elections included 40 MediorNet frames connected over redundant fiber, two Artist 64 systems, the Riedel RockNet digital audio network, and a number of Riedel panels already in use on site. These systems were connected in a ring topology over a fiber network put in place by DB Video in co-operation with Amubel, which then connected to the in-house fiber network.

The Riedel network enabled DB Video to interconnect seven different broadcast sets with up to 10 cameras each, which were used for press conferences, interviews, and live commentary on the results. An additional 40 SNG and over 60 live stand-up positions were set up throughout, and adjacent to, the parliament buildings to complement these sets. Because DB Video had created a plan to address both routing and processing, including up/downconversion, embedding/de-embedding of audio, and synchronization, Riedel was able to preprogram and test the whole system in advance. The installation was nearly plug and play, allowing DB Video to install the network much faster than expected and to focus on final adjustments to the network configuration.

During the elections, the Riedel systems proved to be very stable, maintaining high quality outputs even when pushed to 95 percent of available bandwidth. Technical support from Riedel was on-site throughout the event to ensure that any issues could be resolved quickly. Given the success of the Riedel gear in this application, the European Parliament is evaluating the system for a fixed installation in its Strasbourg, France, parliament buildings.

“Riedel equipment excels in the most challenging of environments, including live coverage and communications support during high-profile elections,” said Thomas Riedel, CEO of Riedel Communications. “The Riedel Benelux team worked closely with DB Video and our counterparts within the European Parliament to make sure that the installed fiber network could support a high volume of signals while maintaining high video and audio quality, as well as flexibility in managing a continually changing array of sources and outputs.”

Further information about Riedel and the company’s products is available at www.riedel.net.

Pro Audio Technology Subwoofer Offers Deep Bass from Shallow Cabinet

The LFC-12v is the most affordable PRO subwoofer and an ideal performer in rooms where multiple subwoofers are desired or where space is at a premium.

 

Lake Forest, CA – July 17, 2014 – Pro Audio Technology (PRO), the leader in loudspeakers and DSP-programmable amplifier systems for residential properties, today announced the LFC-12v subwoofer. PRO’s new high-sensitivity architectural subwoofer is equipped with a 12-inch, 700W driver and achieves a maximum output of 117dB from a 6-inch deep cabinet.

The professional-grade 12-inch driver employed in PRO’s LFC-12v includes a high-powered motor system designed with the most demanding music and movie soundtracks in mind. Its over-sized, four-inch voice coil aids with heat dissipation, greatly improving the thermal stability of the driver, allowing the LFC-12v to handle long periods of high output playback without over-heating and with no threat of sonic compression or damage.  The subwoofer’s four front-firing free-flow ports enhance the LFC-12v’s low-frequency extension and output, resulting in a highly dynamic listening experience.

At 14-inches wide, the LFC-12v’s enclosure is designed to fit into a standard stud bay.  Its shallow 6-inch depth lets it function as a primary subwoofer in media and multi-purpose rooms with limited space, or as an in-wall solution for side and rear wall placement in elaborate multi-subwoofer home theaters.  Designed for use with PRO’s DSP driven amplifier / processors, integrators can select between power levels of 300, 450, and 1000 watts per channel to drive the subwoofer.  Rated at a sensitivity of 96dB with one watt of input power, this subwoofer is quick to provide dynamic, visceral bass power in every installation.

“The advantages of using multiple subwoofers in a home theater or media room are well known, but the floor space they require can be a real issue. Our LFC-12v addresses space constraints while maintaining the high-output performance and visceral slam that customers and integrators expect from PRO subwoofers,” said Paul Hales, Pro Audio Technology founder.

PRO’s DMA and PMA amplifiers provide power to the LFC-12v while enabling in-room performance calibration via PRO SoundTools, a proprietary software program that makes it easy for integrators to attain optimized audio performance in a matter of minutes. For advanced users, PRO SoundTools provides parametric EQ and delay capabilities so installers can address in-room low-frequency modal problems and precisely tune sophisticated multi-subwoofer systems.

The LFC-12v is Pro Audio Technology’s most affordable subwoofer available, for more information, please visit: www.proaudiotechnology.com.

About Pro Audio Technology

Through thoughtful combination of consumer and professional engineering technologies, Pro Audio Technology designs and manufactures a complete range of high-power loudspeakers and DSP-programmable amplifiers for high-end residential installations. PRO products unite lively dynamics, high maximum output level, and rugged durability with the refined acoustic performance you’ve come to expect from contemporary home audio equipment. The sound system of choice for discerning music and home theater enthusiasts, Pro Audio Technology products are available globally through an elite group of high-end residential custom installers.

Wohler IBC2014 Product Preview

Visit Wohler Technologies at IBC2014, Sept. 12-16, Exhibiting in Stand 10.B10

Wohler Products at IBC2014

During IBC2014 Wohler will showcase the refined IP and multicast capabilities of the company’s MPEG Series monitors. Wohler will also highlight the capabilities newly added to the award-winning iON(TM) platform, as well as its improved speed and extensibility. New for IBC2014 is the introduction of WohlerCaption, which addresses the captioning/subtitling requirements used around the world and gives users complete flexibility in delivering captioned/subtitled media in the international marketplace. Wohler will also demonstrate its flagship AMP2-E16V audio/video processing monitor throughout the IBC2014 exhibition.

MPEG DVB-ASI and IPTV Monitors
Providing functionality critical for facilities migrating toward IP-oriented distribution networks, the MPEG Series monitors decode and provide convenient at-a-glance monitoring of program content from MPEG-2/4 ASI and Ethernet IP streams, as well as 3G/HD-SDI inputs. To meet broadcasters’ increasing need for stream-based monitoring, the MPEG video monitors identify, decode, and display in high resolution both MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 signals (input via BNC or Ethernet) while giving users the ability to browse the PAT, PMT, PID, EIT, and NIT data (both ATSC and DVB tables) for each selected stream. In addition to MPEG ASI and dual-input 3G/HD-SDI with loop-through, the MPEG monitors also accommodate audio with level meters, GPI, and tally. Convenient monitoring capabilities include Dolby Digital and Digital+ decoding, as well as the capacity to decode as many as 12 audio groups. In-picture level metering of up to 16 channels of audio is provided for both average and PPM (peak) levels with selectable meter scales.

iON(TM) Remote Monitoring Platform
Uniting Wohler’s world-class technology for signal management and confidence monitoring on a single software platform, iON(TM) gives users the ability to access, control, and manage a broad range of signals and associated data remotely from any Web-enabled PC, Mac(R), smartphone, or tablet device, with video and audio content streamed in real time. iON enables practical, highly efficient monitoring of both baseband and stream-based signals, presenting monitored content in a browser for convenient review anywhere and anytime. Taking advantage of iON’s increased power and modular design, users can also add features and functions with confidence as their monitoring operations require.

WohlerCaption — Now Addressing Captioning/Subtitling Globally
A turnkey closed-caption/subtitle translation solution, WohlerCaption leverages Wohler’s RadiantGrid(TM) technology to extract closed-captioning from media sources and insert closed-captioning back into the transcoded output file.

Boasting a new captioning/subtitling framework built on open standards, the solution now supports an enhanced range of input and output standards in addition to a variety of data presentations. Any captioned/subtitled input can be leveraged across any output platform while maintaining compliance with caption/subtitle requirements for broadcast and Internet-delivered content. Translation of closed-caption/subtitling data between these standards occurs without any impact on video or audio, which remain in their native state. However, because this solution is built on RadiantGrid technology, it allows users to execute multiple concurrent processing tasks, such as captioning/subtitling translation along with a transcode, and thereby output deliverables with much greater speed and efficiency.

Wohler DPP Packaging and Delivery Solution
Wohler has leveraged the powerful RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform(TM) to address plans by major U.K. broadcasters to require that file-based deliverables be compliant with the new DPP (Digital Production Partnership) standard. This turnkey solution accelerates assembly, repackaging, and delivery of file-based content in the AS-11 UKDPP file format that is specified by the DPP standard.

European Debut: Cinnafilm Tachyon(R) Wormhole(TM) Automated File-Based Retiming
Cinnafilm’s Tachyon(R) Wormhole(TM) is an automated file-based retiming solution that enables up to a plus or minus 10 percent runtime adjustment while preserving not only video and audio quality, but also closed caption integrity. Based on Cinnafilm’s popular Tachyon Standards Transcoding(TM) plug-in and the Wohler RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform(TM) framework, Tachyon Wormhole saves time for content producers, allowing them to “fit and fill” — easily adjusting content to meet specific customers’ length requirements without compromising the integrity or quality of audio, video, and captioning/subtitling. In many cases, this approach allows users to replace a great deal of expensive specialized hardware with a single server at a fraction of the cost.

LYNXdr — Disaster Recovery in the Cloud
Downtime can be a problem for just about any business, but losing the data altogether is disastrous. LYNXdr, Front Porch Digital’s private-cloud-hosted disaster recovery and business continuity service, ensures file safety and zero downtime. Moving to the cloud can reduce the total cost of ownership of digital asset management for content owners, which in turn increases ROI. As part of an overall media asset management solution, LYNXdr controls costs because users pay only for what they use when they use it. Off-site data backup to virtual machines is much less costly than on-premise physical servers and allows for instant increases in storage capacity with minimal or no effort from the IT team. Also, by consolidating operations, media organizations can cut capital and operating expenses to reduce overhead.

LYNXdr offers a secure off-site backup capability by ingesting and managing content electronically or from datatape to key strategic regional cloud locations. Additionally, there is no cost increase as the technology evolves, which means users can realize even more value from their assets.

DISTILL(SM) — Metadata Management System
At IBC2014, Front Porch Digital will launch DISTILL(SM) in the European market. This new solution, delivered over four simple steps — capture, process, manage, and retrieve, ensures that almost any metadata created at any stage of the content lifecycle can now be easily and effectively managed.

Metadata is a critical part of every media project, but the inflexibility of traditional IT solutions has made it difficult for media companies to leverage this data fully. Industry sources estimate that less than 5 percent of metadata created in production remains available for the full lifecycle of the content, with most being lost as the video asset is moved, transcoded, and monetized repeatedly. DISTILL allows media professionals to work with the tools they prefer while ensuring that users enterprise-wide and beyond (subject to access permissions) can leverage that critical data wherever and whenever they need it. The central storage and accessibility of DISTILL data also reduces the need for data movement or errors in data transposition, as direct access can be provided to the source of critical production notes and commentary along with the media.

DIVArchive(R) — Content Storage Management System
Front Porch Digital will unveil new enhancements to its DIVArchive(R) content storage management (CSM) system at IBC2014. First, Front Porch Digital and Avid(R) have strengthened their partnership once again. In addition to the recent integration with the Avid ISIS(R) shared storage system, which connects DIVArchive directly to ISIS storage via 1/10 Gb Ethernet, DIVArchive now seamlessly supports the latest Avid Interplay(R) 3.0 environments for both DET and DHM workflows.

Visitors to Front Porch Digital’s stand at IBC2014 will also see improvements to the DIVArchive Manager’s performance, including significant performance improvements, enhancements to the GUI that more accurately reflect real-time status, and additional log information that provides details on what is happening in the manager.

DIVArchive users will now see library failure notifications, a new critical error notice that pops up when a library failure occurs during mount/dismount. Users can archive with genuine checksum via API for up to 1,000 noncomplex objects, and DIVArchive has now been tested and validated with Visual Studio 2012, Java 7, and Windows(R) Server 2012.
