NEWS NAB Live from NAB Nano HDTX and new receiver platform HDTX, Shared storage C obham world’s featured smallest Nano wireless the reinforces 4k+ HD platform transmitter, NAB. and a new receiver at The ultra miniature Nano HDTX workﬂows is an HD digital video transmitter A t NAB Facilis Technology exhibited its recently expanded line of TerraBlock shared storage solutions -- including the 24D, 24EX/16, 24EX/12 and 24EX/8 -- which support a wide range of creative workflows from compressed HD through to 4k and beyond. Visitors to the Facilis booth also saw TerraBlock 6.0 powering highly-collaborative post production and content creation workflows as it interoperates with the industry’s best-of-breed ingest, archive, encoding and asset management Live from NAB solutions. designed specifi cally for POV and body-worn applications. With proven Cobham COFDM and H.264 encoding technology at its core, the transmitter provides excellent image quality retention over the wireless link and supports composite, SDI, HD-SDI and HDMI video input formats. www.cobham.com HEVC encoding transcoding solution H aivision has announced it’s HEVC baseband encoding and HEVC / H.264 transcoding solution, Kraken HEVC, providing significantly better video quality for backhaul over constricted networks. Built on Haivision’s Kraken transcoder platform, the new HEVC implementation is designed for government and enterprise applications such as intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) and video backhaul contribution. Within these environments, the challenge is to achieve the best picture quality over satellite and other constrained networks (typically in the 1 Mbps to 3 Mbps bandwidth range). Using Haivisions implementation of HEVC, early adopters have experienced picture quality gains of up to 50 percent over H.264. www.haivision.com facilis.com Q3 takes centre stage C Camera Corps technical director Jim Daniels with the new Q3 compact robotic head at the NAB. 32 | TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 89 MAY 2014 amera Corps reports a swarm of interest in its new Q3 compact robotic head among television production creatives attending NAB. Five years on from the launch of the multiple-award-winning Q-Ball, Q3 is completely redesigned to offer more features, greater sensitivity and higher image quality. “Q-Ball gave television producers the freedom to place cameras literally anywhere, for daytime or infra-red-illuminated night operation, without having to risk the safety of camera operators or sending the crewing cost into the stratosphere,” comments Camera Corps managing director Laurie Frost. “Up to 100 remote heads could be operated from a single panel. Q-Ball2 introduced the ability to store presets in non-volatile memory. Q3 adds a raft of refinements including twice the zoom range, a new high-performance imager with nearly double the sensitivity, ultra-smooth pan/tilt/zoom, the ability to intercut with studio cameras, and by popular request a cue light. Q3 can be controlled via a wide range of serial data formats including IP and our own audio-based data system.” www.cameracorps.co.uk
