NAB product update
In addition to the nearly 200 products we featured in our March issue, here’s an additional 300 products that will be on display at the 2013 NAB Show.
CONTINUING COVERAGE Page 2
Custom-built to suit users’ exact requirements; can be modified or extended at a future date with little or no disruption to the existing installation; made from extruded aluminum; all wiring is contained within the uprights and horizontally within the cable trays, allowing for clean lines and easy maintenance.
ATTO Technology FastFrame 10GbE
Delivers high-performance I/O connectivity and lossless Ethernet support for improved iSCSI block storage access; supports OSX, Windows and Linux servers and workstations; single, dual-, quad-port SFP+ configurations make for flexible design; ideal for low-latency applications; works with existing twisted pair copper cabling.
Social media editor
Enables broadcasters to bring social media commentary into their live broadcasts quickly and easily; one or more users can monitor, select, adjust and route social media conversations to broadcast graphics systems either for on-air playback or for storage as data files for later use; multiple instances of SHOUT running across a facility can be used simultaneously by different staff members.
Jampro Antennas RCEC
Designed to provide superior mask filter performance at an affordable price with 5kW of output power; cross coupling creates steep rejection skirts; its high-Q cavities provide low pass band insertion loss in a compact design.
Graphical software interface
Customizable graphical software interface unifies the control of various products in the broadcast chain; provides flexible and reliable control across all broadcast operations from content creation to distribution, thereby increasing productivity and reducing operating costs; designed for touch surfaces; moves operators from simple push-button panels to an interactive look and feel found in smartphones and tablets.
Router control panels
Snell Luna series
1RU panels include four LED models and two LCD models; LED panels include a high-density version with 78 button keys, 72 of which can be configured as source or destination keys for increased flexibility; LCD panels include a rotary encoder control knob for user-friendly “paging”; compatible with all current Snell routers.
Dual-channel H.264 encoder
Haivision Makito X2
Delivers 12 channels of high-profile HD 1080p60 with low encoding latency of 55ms, all within a single rack unit; with dual SDi, the unit addresses video over IP encoding anywhere on a resolution/bandwidth scale from CIF as low as 32kb/s to full HD at up to 25Mb/s; with four internal encoding cores, the unit can encode each input at up to four different bitrates and profiles for Multi Bit Rate streaming.
Multiformat CMOS camera
Economical docking-style portable multiformat HD camera uses CMOS imaging sensors for 1080i/720p HD format flexibility, lower power consumption and reduced operating temperature; quickly switches between fiber or triax cable use; features fine DTL function, six-vector color corrector plus two-axis custom color, and Super Knee.
Multiple encoder platform
ViewCast Niagara 9100 series
Can be configured for a variety of video and audio inputs, including component, Y/C, composite video with balanced or unbalanced audio; designed to offer high density, exceptional performance and enhanced efficiencies; is comprehensive and adaptable.
Online video platform
Pilat Media OTTilus OVP
Enables end-to-end OTT deployments that encompass all workflow components from content acquisition to player applications; easy to deploy and compatible with all security, streaming, device and monetization options; can be deployed as a cloud service or to drive a local OTT headend.
Offers picture quality analysis on HDCP-encrypted content; also provides effective modeling of how equipment changes will impact picture quality through the network, across head-end facilities to the STB; 3D-SDI interface supports the 1080p fast progressive video format (1080p50/59) and real-time video format conversion.
Enables users to transport up to 18 HD-SDI signals per single-mode fiber; portable and easy to use; ideal for transmitting multiple high-bandwidth signals in harsh operating environments; can easily support emerging 4K applications; designed for OB, fixed facility link, cross-campus network and centralized control room applications.
Litepanels Inca 12
Tungsten balanced fixture combines the performance of large Fresnel fixtures with the advantages of LED technology; designed to supply powerful and controllable illumination comparable to a 2K while using just a small fraction of the energy required by traditional tungsten or daylight Fresnel fixtures; emits even, collimated light that is easily controlled manually or via an integrated DMX module.
Ideal for studios, production vehicles and remote headends; provides a seamless communication path between equipment; configures hardware components to user-defined preferences; features easy mapping of Tallies, mnemonics and router paths, as well as simple drag-and-drop editing; interfaces with all known mixers, multiviewers and routers.
Four-window video processor
TV One C2-6104A
Has four DVI-U inputs to place up to four sizable windows on a single DVI-U output; a fifth DVI-U input is provided for background or cascading units; each window is powered by a CORIO 2 scaler providing full PIP flexibility; DVI-U resolutions up to 1920 x 1200@60Hz and 1080p are supported along with analog DVI-A (RGBHV/YUV/YPbPr via optional HD-15 adaptor) resolutions up to 2048 x 2048 at virtually any refresh rate.
New, advanced Director’s Cut feature in IPDirector suite of video production management applications is designed to accelerate the production chain by facilitating as-live studio productions from the main video switcher and all camera ISOs, and linking it with an EDL in native formats for the most popular NLE post-production editors.
Video quality monitor
Video Clarity ClearView Extreme 4K
Designed for broadcast product manufacturers and original television program networks that need advanced 4K audio and video quality analysis; provides highly accurate reference-based objective, subjective and perceptual analysis, including fully interactive playback of two uncompressed recordings at 3840 x 2160 at 24Hz, 23.98Hz, 25Hz, 30Hz or 60Hz progressive frame rates.
Harris NEXIO Volt
Like its predecessor, the server offers a 1RU package with low operating costs and high levels of resilience and reliability; doubles the number of available record ports with four bi-directional HD channels (up to eight SD); designed to offer exceptional overall channel density for ingest and playout operations; its software-based codecs and software license keying provide flexibility.
