Argosy brings intelligent power management and mission-critical cabling for AV, broadcast and smart homes to ISE 2019

Argosy (10-K165), a leading international supplier of HD broadcast cables and studio infrastructure products, is bringing a range of exciting intelligent power management and mission critical cabling equipment to ISE 2019, which will interest visitors seeking better ways to install and manage their infrastructure, whether for broadcast studios or outside broadcast, AV or smart home installations.

Intelligent Power
"The balance sheet and the environment are top of mind for systems administrators these days, so streamlining maintenance and support teams, and minimising energy consumption, are absolutely critical," said Chris Smeeton, director, Argosy. “Intelligent power management is about ensuring that you can monitor and manage your systems at all times."
Smeeton observes that, with many installations spread over different locations, for example, large office buildings with multiple conference rooms, lighting systems and air-conditioning units; being able to monitor equipment power cycles and manage access restrictions is crucial from an commercial and quality stand point; “The need for a simple, centralised facility-wide control solution that can manage every aspect of performance, from controlling individual outputs to monitoring alerts has never been greater.”
A highlight on the Argosy stand, the intelligent EMU line of IP-based mains distribution units (MDUs) by IPE, is now available in a single configuration, which will auto configure as either a Master or a Slave, in standard Intelligent mode or the Automatic Change Over (ACO) model.
All AMU-3 and AMU-3-ACO units now come with an embedded web server that enables continuous remote control and monitoring. They can be daisy-chained to other EMU3 units to provide up to 48 outputs via a single IP connection. In the event of a Master unit failure, the Ethernet, can be removed and the secondary unit inserted and automatically promoted to a Master.
The new EMU3’s embedded intelligence allows a scalable power management solution with a low resource outlay. An intuitive web interface provides quick and easy access to control and configuration facilities. The health status of racks and every connected output can be easily monitored and advanced email alerting provides extensive reporting back to system administrators and engineering teams.
Going the distance
Visitors to the show will also be able to view a range of Belden structured cabling technology, including CAT5e and CAT6 cabling in LSOH and PVC options. These robust cables allow critical and non-critical equipment to be connected to any facility’s network and carry high band width signals, such as HD video streaming, quickly and reliably.
Belden offers several Category 5E performance levels. The top-of-line 1200 series system cable provides headroom beyond the TIA 568-C.2 Category 5E standard and is offered with the Bonded-Pair technology option.
Several Category 6 performance levels are also available, including the premium 4800 series with exceptional signal power, and signal-to-noise performance, the 3600 series with mid-range performance at a great price, and the 2400 Standards Compliant Plus system cable. Every level exceeds TIA 568-C.2's performance and are produced with Belden's superior quality.
Fibre conversion
Also on show is Barnfind’s BarnMini range of plug and play fibre converters that allow broadcast and AV system designers to connect more or less anything to anything, providing flexibility and therefore a cost saving to installers who wish to fit communication devices within a facility, utilising the existing legacy infrastructure that is already in place.
A range of connectors from UK manufacturer Cliff Connectors will be exhibited too, which includes a variety of panel mount connectors for audio, video, data and power transport.
Having completed a management buyout from its previous parent company, Argosy is now under the direct control of directors Chris Smeeton and Josh Simons, which gives the company the commercial agility to respond dynamically to the market. Argosy has recently broadened its remit to pro audio recording and commercial proAV.

A Headphone Wearing Theatre Audience Experiences Truly Immersive Live Audio Thanks To DPA and rsquo;s New 4560 Binaural Headset Microphone Posted: 09/12/2019
A Headphone Wearing Theatre Audience Experiences Truly Immersive Live Audio Thanks To DPA and rsquo;s New 4560 Binaural Headset Microphone

Nanna-Karina Schleimann has become one of the first sound designers to make use of DPA’s new Binaural Headset Microphone, which gives sound technicians, vloggers, film makes and YouTubers an accurate and reliable tool to capture authentic immersive audio in real time.

Delivering the superior sound quality for which DPA products are internationally renowned, this new headset allows film, theatre and online content creators to capture exactly what each ear is hearing so that those consuming the content on headphones can experience full immersive sound. Earlier this year, while the 4560 Binaural Headset Microphone was still in development, Schleimann was given the opportunity to beta test it during her graduation performance from the Danish National School of Performing Arts in Copenhagen.

Three Binaural Headset Microphones were used to amplify the voices, actions and movements of the actors performing on stage in Good For Nothing, her graduation performance production. Each member of the audience was given a pair of headphones so they could hear the sound from each actor via a wireless system.

“The binaural microphones allowed the audience to hear exactly what the actors were hearing, as if they were standing on the stage and being whispered to,” Schleimann says.

disguise solutions Powered Video-Intensive Set for Network on Broadway Posted: 06/12/2019
disguise solutions Powered Video-Intensive Set for and lsquo;Network and rsquo; on Broadway

When Tal Yarden created the projection design for ‘Network’ on Broadway he selected disguise gx 2 media servers to drive the video-intensive environment that sets the scene for the iconic story of network anchor Howard Beale. Bryan Cranston won a Tony Award for his portrayal of Beale, an ageing anchor struggling with low ratings, who unravels live on the air only to become a new populist prophet.

Based on the Oscar-winning 1976 film, ‘Network’ was directed by Ivo van Hove and opened at the Belasco Theatre in December 2018. Brian Cranston reprised the role he premiered at the National Theatre in London in 2017. The show’s limited run was extended in 2019 with the final performance in June 2019.

Video was used as a way to heighten the story of Beale and his rise to fame. New York-based disguise rental partner Sound Associates supplied the video and audio equipment for the production. The set design for the TV studio featured over 50 screens across various types of monitors plus a large LED video wall and 6 projectors powered by disguise gx 2 media servers. The capture capabilities of the servers were also used to pipe in live video footage from moving cameras on the set further enhancing the storytelling and video design.

Although the film was written in 1976, the play’s creative team made the story relevant to the time while leaving in the original period references. “We wanted to extrapolate a kind of anachronistic storytelling,” says Tal. “So, technologically, it’s not all period television sets or cameras, and some of the content - although most of it is from the 70’s - spans time.” Interestingly, in doing research for the show he found a correlation between news stories and commercial advertising past and present.

Digital Nirvanas New MonitorIQ 6.1 Enhances Ad Insertion, Monitoring, and Troubleshooting

Digital Nirvana, a provider of leading-edge media-monitoring and metadata generation services, today announced new enhancements within MonitorIQ 6.1, the company's next-generation broadcast monitoring and compliance logging platform. A new Digital Program Monitoring application in MonitorIQ 6.1 gives users unprecedented visibility into SCTE 35/104 messages for more effective resolution of digital program insertion (DPI) issues and better control over advertising insertions in a variety of streaming environments.

"MonitorIQ 6.1 incorporates powerful new features and capabilities that take compliance monitoring and advertising optimization to a new level," said Russell Wise, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Digital Nirvana. "The platform's new Digital Program Monitoring application simplifies the monitoring of content and SCTE 104/35-based metadata to ensure DPI messages were inserted correctly. We monitor the presence of markers that allow the ad to be inserted, which provides our users better control in existing and new streaming environments. Thanks to these and other enhancements in MonitorIQ 6.1, broadcasters are better prepared than ever to identify, resolve, and document critical issues and, in turn, meet their regulatory, compliance, licensing, and advertising requirements."
