NEWS MANIPULATE & EDIT Modular interfaces News production At NAB ChyronHego will showcase technology for “easing the path to all-IP operations”. The spotlight will be on end-to-end workflows for news and sports production, channel branding and tickers, and weather production. ChyronHego chief executive Johan Apel said: “The migration to IP is top-of-mind for many broadcast operations, but so far the focus has been mostly on standards for video transmission over Ethernet connections. We believe that the IP migration is about much more than replacing a cable; it requires a completely integrated, end-to-end, software-based approach that leverages standard IT equipment and infrastructure.” Among the demos will be a news production workflow powered by the CAMIO asset and data management system and working with a Lyric graphics creation and playout system, the VidiGo Live Compositor for multi-camera TV production, the Metacast weather graphics offering and hybrid virtual studio and robotic camera head technologies. chyronhego.com UHD graphics RT Software used CabSat in Dubai to showcase tOG-Vista, a multi- camera 4k stitch application that creates a panoramic live view of a sporting event and allows operators to select HD areas of interest for transmission. It is intended for capturing off-the-ball incidents or as a tool that will keep output quality high and costs down at smaller, lower profile events. Also on show was tOG-3d (UHD), the 4k version of RT Software’s regular graphics product, and Opta data integration in tOG-Sports. rtsw.co.uk LYNX Technik has released a new yellobrik SDI Frame Synchroniser. The PVD 1800 is for digital video and audio processing applications that require synchronisation of a wide variety of SDI sources. It offers a high quality feature set derived from the company’s Series 5000 rack and card frame synchronisers. LYNX Technik said: “The flexible architecture of the PVD is unique to the marketplace in that it offers full broadcast performance and features in a brick-style modular solution, at a competitive price-point. This combination makes it ideal for demanding studio and outside broadcast applications, post- production, as well as professional audio video.” The PVD 1800 can be used as a standalone module to address a specific purpose, or integrated into a larger system design with yellobrik racks. lynx-technik.co.uk Archive At NAB Imagine Products will offer up PreRoll Post, an application designed to make LTO tape archiving easier and more efficient. The system automates indexing of camera footage - complete with thumbs, proxies, and metadata - while backing up full-resolution media to local disk, long-term LTO tapes, or optical disc. With support for Mac and Windows, the software creates non-proprietary backups of any file or folder using the open-source Linear Tape File System (LTFS), quickening the process of placing any file type onto an LTO-7, LTO- 6, or LTO-5 tape, or onto Sony’s Optical Disc Archive (ODA). “Hard drives are great for delivering files to your client, but they shouldn’t be trusted as a long-term archiving solution,” said Michelle Maddox, marketing director, Imagine Products. “PreRoll Post makes using LTO tape drives or the Sony ODA easy and affordable.” imagineproducts.com 18 | KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 111 MARCH 2016 TV-BAY111MARCH_Book.indb 18 11/03/2016 17:17
