CAMERA STABILISERS Sachtler has sold its Artemis camera stabilisers to Arri. The Artemis range includes the new Trinity system, the EFP HD and the Cine Broadcast, as well as vests, spring arms and other accessories. Curt O. Schaller, who developed Trinity and, together with Dr Roman Foltyn of FoMA Systems, invented the Maxima gimbal that functions as the head of the system, joins Arri as product manager for camera stabilisers systems. As a result of the deal, Arri becomes the sole global sales and service provider for all Artemis products. No financial details were revealed. At NAB Arri also revealed that new recording formats and improved on-set monitoring options have been added to its Alexa SXT camera. Following an update, the 4K and HDR-capable shooter can record in ProRes 2K and 4K Cine Anamorphic, Open Gate ProRes 3.4K and ARRIRAW 3.2K. arri.com MULTIVIEWERS Cobalt Digital has agreed a partnership with Lawo that sees its 9970-QS openGear multiviewer card working with theWALL, Lawo’s mobile app for setting up and controlling multiviewers. Bob McAlpine, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Cobalt Digital, said: “Thanks to this partnership, operators can control and view their monitor walls in a studio or OB truck with one seamless solution, and both companies will be able to promote and sell an integrated system.” Lawo has also launched an IP-based product that allows a virtualised real-time production infrastructure to be added to an OB truck, TV studio or broadcast facility. The V__matrix is a software- defined core routing and processing platform that can work with both IP and SDI signals. Intended to work like a baseband router, it creates a distributed IP routing and processing matrix by having multiple cores that are connected to a high- capacity COTS switch with redundant 10GE and 40GE connections. OB Imagine Communications has revealed that four new 4K-capable outside broadcast trucks being built by NEP Visions will include Platinum IP3 routers. The Platinum IP3, which is designed to work in a hybrid SDI- IP environment, will provide signal distribution, audio multiplexing and de-multiplexing, multi-viewing and test and measurement, along with routing capabilities. Also included in the build for the four new trucks are Selenio MCP units, fortified with HD-UHD up- and down-conversion capabilities, and Selenio 6800+, Selenio X100 and Selenio X50 modular units for signal processing, monitoring and distribution. imaginecommunications.com lawo.com SGL has an established history serving the archive needs of broadcast facilities around the world.
