As the migration from analogue to digital television broadcasting gathers momentum, many stations are experiencing the need to handle an increasing variety of signal formats. Audio and standard definition video commonly occur in both analogue and digital formats, along with high definition video in its 1.485Gb/s uncompressed state. While a ‘clean sheet’ approach with all new digital equipment might sound attractive, it is not a feasible solution in many cases due to the existing capital investment in analogue equipment together with the need to simulcast the traditional analogue channels. In making the changes needed to support the new technology alongside the old, however, broadcasters are understandably reluctant to make capital acquisitions which are not perceived to offer full value in the ultimate all-digital future. In this mixed signal environment, a routing switcher which delivered the appropriate signal format to each destination, irrespective of its source, would be a major advantage, especially if source and destination interfaces could be upgraded in economical units as requirements changed over time.

Pro-Bel pioneered the use of ‘in router’ conversion for audio in its Freeway range of routers, introduced in sizes up to 64 x 64 in 1997. Such was the industry’s approval of the ability to route analogue audio sources to digital destinations and vice versa that, in designing Sirius, a new router family for sizes up to 256 x 256 on 16RU, Pro-Bel took up the challenge to provide this feature, not only for audio, but for standard definition video too. Furthermore, Sirius can also switch high definition video at 1.485Gb/s as well as nonvideo serial streams up to 360Mb/s or higher.
 
Universal Crosspoints
The key to Sirius' flexibility in handling multiple signal types is its universal digital crosspoint switch. All signals are converted into digits before switching and the crosspoint array is capable of routing any media signal, subject to a maximum bit-rate limit. Suitable crosspoints have been developed in integrated form for the telecommunications industry and, due to the enormous quantities consumed in that application, the broadcast industry is able to take advantage of these sophisticated products at an acceptable price. That being said, bandwidth costs money and so Sirius offers two alternative digital crosspoints. The first is capable of switching signals up to 360Mb/s which includes all of the digital video bit-rates specified by SMPTE 259M as well as AES3 digital audio and converted analogue composite video and converted analogue stereo audio. The second crosspoint type has extended bandwidth to include high definition serial digital video at 1.485Gb/s in addition to all of the previously listed formats. To achieve its full capacity, Sirius uses up to four crosspoint modules, each capable of switching any of the inputs to a group of outputs. It is not essential to fit all four modules, a small system can start with just one. It is also possible to mix the high definition and standard definition cards, accepting, of course, that HDTV outputs can only be provided from the high bandwidth crosspoint.

Looking for the Silver Lining
Harry Grinling According to the World Meteorological Organisation, there are 10 different types of cloud, each of which can be divided further into sub-types. They range from the cirrus, the thin floaty clouds which generally serve only to make the sky look beautiful to the towering, all-embracing cumulonimbus which can deliver fearful quantities of rain – the biggest cumulonimbus clouds can contain 50 million tonnes of water.

NAB Intelligence
Bruce Devlin - new It's that time of year again. 06:30 on road bikes on the Las Vegas Strip with a merry bunch of folks who believe they look good in lycra. As we pedal West up the hill towards Red Rock there will be stories of the year just gone and questions about what to look for at the show. I, for one, will be attending the Devoncroft event to check up on who is spending what and where. I will then look forward to the topics that might be buzzing around the halls. I predict there will be many displays of Machine Learning hiding under the banner of Artificial Intelligence. Some of these will show better picture quality, others will show personalisation engines, some will be improved search tools and yet more will be synthesising pictures and motions to replace reality with and Artificial reality that's more compelling for the viewer.

4k and HDR Wireless Camera Transmitters
David Edwards Across the globe, live events represented over 50 percent of the most watched TV programs last year. However, big budget episodic shows are impacting live TV and the way viewers want to see their content. Viewers are demanding the same quality of production for live event broadcasts as they see in pre-recorded TV series and films. Producers of live content are looking to new, immersive and cinematic mobile camera views to better achieve these results. This presents a challenge to live production teams as these new camera views and angles must match the quality of the rest of the production -  the demand for mobility means that the cameras need to be wireless.

Keeping Your Post Prodction on Track with Subclips and Search Bins
Alex Macleod

For my 2nd Kit Plus article I thought I’d try and build on the theme of my first, and that’s one of making sure things are organised at all levels of your post production projects.

Last time I talked about trying as best as you can to stick to the ‘two week rule’, making sure that the names & locations of every asset you import, and every bin & sequence that you create in your project - will make sense to you regardless of how long it is you spend away from it.

TV Futures - The Shadowing Experience
Daniel Jones My name is Daniel Jones, and it is no accident that I’m currently studying BSc (Hons) Television and Broadcasting at the University of Portsmouth. Since completing GSCE media studies I have been constantly questioning what I watch with questions such as, “Wow, how was that filmed?” or “That looks amazing, I wonder how long that took?” It should come as no surprise that I made it a big focus of mine to get myself some real work experience to give myself some answers to these production questions.
