Blackmagic made several significant product announcements that set the stage for future industry technological advances in 8K.
At the 2019 NAB Show, JVC Professional Video debuted a compact all-in-one live production and streaming system designed for sports and other live events. The company calls its new Connected Cam Studio 6000S a “self-contained control room” that features a production switcher with six IP inputs that support the NDI and SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) streaming protocols.
As the myriad of live competition television shows continue to attract new and ever larger audiences for TV networks, producing them live has become so complicated that a second technical director (TD), often called a “screens TD,” is now often being employed in concert with the lighting department’s graphics server operator and create the look of the LED video tile-intensive sets. Most stages feature literally millions of LED pixels and lighting rig configurations that adorn the brilliantly lit sets so it takes a “screens team” along with the LED tech responsible to manage the actual LED tiles.
EVS has a new server running on its core services platform, VIA and demos of Xeebra, Dyvi and a new hypervisor.
ATEN Technology has announced the addition of the 4-Port USB 4K HDMI Multi-View KVMP Switch to its Multi-View KVM product series.
The upgraded browser-based switcher Broadcast Pix Commander – a touchscreen control platform for the BPswitch range of production switchers, now provides IP-based remote control of servers and robotic cameras. IP connectivity also provides access to all workflow tools, and full-motion viewing of production elements through a standard internet connection.
Production switchers, video servers, keyers and test signal generators that support both 12G-SDI/4K and 3G-SDI/HD resolution will be booth highlights for FOR-A.
From lens to screen, from acquisition to playout, Grass Valley can be found in the entire broadcast production workflow.
