WORLD NEWS Cobham Broadcast supports Radio 1 Big Weekend concerts C obham, the RF specialist company, provided wireless HD, fibre systems and camera control support to Ireland-based Television Mobiles Ltd’s (TVMs) televised coverage of BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend concert series in Derry-Londonderry over the 24-26 May holiday weekend. TVM deployed a range of Cobham’s camera-mounted SOLO H.264 HD transmitters supplied by Cobham distributor GTZLINK. The transmitters are specifically designed for OB applications and work in conjunction with Cobham’s feature-rich Pro-RXB receiver, a multi- way COFDM receiver designed for the new generation of H.264 wireless camera systems. Cobham’s systems were used in conjunction with TVMs deployment of its 24-camera OB6 and 30-camera OB8 trucks at the festival site and delivered flawless pictures throughout the weekend despite occasional periods of challenging weather. Turning up the creative control The Tiffen Company, a leading manufacturer of award-winning accessories for the still imaging, video, motion picture and broadcast markets, has begun shipping the new Tiffen Satin and Tiffen Black Satin MPTV Filters in 4 x 4, 4 x 5.65 and 6.6 x 6.6 sizes. Optical filter development is the cornerstone of the Tiffen Company, and our new line of integrated Tiffen filters, which includes Film Looks, exemplifies the forward-thinking innovation behind our commitment to continued research and development, says Steve Tiffen, President and CEO, The Tiffen Company. This year, we celebrate 75 years of filter engineering excellence, and it gives me great pleasure to cross this milestone by expanding the Tiffen filter product offerings yet again. We look forward to seeing the tremendous images the creative world will make with the new line of Tiffen MPTV filters, including the new Satin and Black Satin looks.
