NUGENs Surround Mix is Essential to Audio Post-Production for Todays Evolving Media Posted: 25/03/2020
NUGENs Surround Mix is Essential to Audio Post-Production for Todays Evolving Media

NUGEN Audio’s Surround Suite offers a complete set of tools forupmixing, downmixing and multi-channel sound reshaping for the production market. Featuring the company’s Halo Downmix, Halo Upmix, ISL True Peak limiter and SEQ-S match and morph EQ software, NUGEN’s Surround Suite is perfect for both movie and television productions.

“We take pride in tailoring our products to the specific needs of audio professionals working in TV and film, enabling them to accomplish their full creative vision in a time- and results-oriented manner,” says Paul Tapper, CEO, NUGEN Audio. “Surround Suite delivers all the control necessary to define, enhance and fine-tune a surround mix. As a result, it gives users access to precise and tweakable downmixing (Halo Downmix) and coherent and natural upmixing, from stereo to 5.1 and 7.1 (Halo Upmix). They can also take advantage of the suite’s True Peak limiting (ISL) and linear phase EQ (SEQ-S).”

NUGEN’s Surround Suite offers full access to surround balances, clear visual feedback and individual surround channel access. The toolkit also allows users to regulate low frequency content and fine-tune surround mixes, without the possibility of phase warping.

Included among the NUGEN Surround Suite is Halo Downmix, which complements any post-production workflow. Using precise surround control, mix monitoring and versatile downmix balancing, Downmix helps to accelerate productivity on surround mixes. Typically considered the final piece of a production workflow, Halo Downmix allows users to easily deliver projects in both stereo and surround formats without compromise.

Somewhat of a ‘parent’ software to Downmix, NUGEN’s Halo Upmix is also included in the Surround Suite. With unique center-channel management and switchable dialog extraction, Upmix is perfect for everything from archive restoration and TV, through 7.1 feature films. With surround delivery requirement becoming increasingly common, Halo Upmix offers an indispensable tool for Dolby Atmos, Aura 3D and Ambisonic productions.

Spectra Logic Announces SpectraLIVE, a Virtual Conference and Executive Meeting Programme to Help Customers Maintain Business Continuity

Spectra Logic, a leader in data storage and data management solutions, today announced that it will provide customers and partners with several virtual opportunities to connect and engage with Spectra leadership and product managers during this unique time of global uncertainty. With customers and partners in mind, Spectra has developed SpectraLIVE, a virtual conference and executive meeting platform, alongside its monthly webinar series, to help organisations maintain business continuity and make decisions related to managing, accessing and preserving their vital data.

 

“Keeping our employees, customers and partners around the world safe is our highest priority as we deal with the challenges posed by COVID-19,” said Betsy Doughty, vice president of corporate marketing for Spectra Logic. “To that end, we have proactively put together some unique virtual offerings so that we can continue to provide the highest level of engagement and support for our Spectra customers and partners. While the coronavirus outbreak presents new hurdles for the way we do business, we want to do all we can to keep organisations operating as efficiently and securely as possible during this time.”

 

With most industry shows cancelled and countries and organisations restricting employee travel, Spectra will be producing a virtual conference to enable interaction, education and engagement between customers, partners and Spectra executives. The event will take place on Tuesday, May 12, 2020, and will enable attendees to ‘walk the floor’ by hearing about the latest market trends, learning about Spectra solutions, asking questions, sharing feedback, watching product demonstrations, and meeting with Spectra executives.

Edgeware adds automated QoE optimization to its multi-CDN control platform StreamPilot Posted: 25/03/2020
Edgeware adds automated QoE optimization to its multi-CDN control platform StreamPilot

Edgeware has today announced the addition of its automated optimization capability to its multi-CDN control platform StreamPilot. Referred to as AutoPilot, the feature gives broadcasters and content providers the option to automatically perform actions triggered by StreamPilot’s real-time session data when using a multi-CDN set-up

StreamPilot, which was launched at IBC in September 2019, has raised significant customer interest and rendered several trial projects. Insights from these customer discussions are now channelized into the new AutoPilot capabilities.

The AutoPilot feature identifies and automatically presents a unified view of problems that could affect users’ quality of experience, independent of which CDN is delivering the TV service to the viewer. The issues presented can be related to the device, delivery CDN, ISP or the content itself. The data is processed, grouped and presented with a classification on severity level.

By giving users the unique capability to automatically – or manually – mitigate the problems through actions such as selecting another CDN for the delivery, StreamPilot meets a growing demand from broadcasters and content providers to automatically optimize delivery, rather than presenting the data for them to then analyse and act upon.

Bryan Sol Aponte Takes DPA Microphones Back to the 80s on the Set of Mixed-ish Posted: 25/03/2020
Bryan and lsquo;Sol and rsquo; Aponte Takes DPA Microphones Back to the 80s on the Set of Mixed-ish

Veteran Sound Mixer Bryan “Sol” Aponte relies on DPA Microphones4061 Miniature Omnidirectional Mic to capture the hilarious and witty dialogue of one of the network’s top sitcoms, mixed-ish. Aponte’s 20-year history in the industry features an impressive resume that includes two Emmy nominations and credits on MADtv, Workaholics, American Gangster, The Young and the Restless and Splitting up Together. He recently swapped out his previous lavaliers for the 4061s because of the impressive, natural sound quality these DPA mics provide.

“I’ve been using the DPA lavs for a year now and I absolutely love them,” says Aponte. “My audio utility, the legendary Nick Carbone, first introduced me to them—he spoke so highly of DPA microphones in comparison to other manufacturers’ solutions. When I first tested the 4061s, I fell in love with them and immediately replaced my inventory of lavaliers with DPAs. The presence boost on the 4061s not only sounds natural, but you can place them almost anywhere on talent and capture great sound.”

The decision to switch to DPA was an easy one for Aponte. “Prior to using DPA mics, I really didn’t know what I was missing, but after using them for a year, I feel like they are far superior,” he adds. “Once I heard the mics and did side-by-side comparisons with other manufacturers, I knew I couldn’t afford not to use DPA. The 4061s don’t create microphonic noise—a challenge that I’ve faced with other brands—and they take my mixing game to the next level.”

With a capsule designed with a double vent protection system and moisture resistant materials, the 4061 miniature lavalier features a condenser element with a frequency and sensitivity response that will accurately reproduce audio signals from the human voice. Additionally, Aponte appreciates the added benefits he receives from DPA’s concealer clip, designed specifically for the 4061. “The concealer clip has helped me to solve an issue with which I have long struggled—clothing rustle, which is every mixer’s worst nightmare and a challenge we are constantly trying to overcome,” he explains. “Since incorporating DPA into the mix, that problem is nearly non-existent; they are a game changer.”

AVIWEST Unveils New RACK Series Video Encoders for Live Contribution and Remote At-Home Production Posted: 25/03/2020
AVIWEST Unveils New RACK Series Video Encoders for Live Contribution and Remote At-Home Production

AVIWEST, a global provider of video contribution systems, today announced its new RACK Series, the next generation of the company's video contribution encoder set to be released this summer. By integrating a best-in-class hardware H.265/HEVC encoder as well as an H.264/AVC encoder into a compact platform, the RACK Series is designed for space-constrained live production, including contribution applications and multicamera remote/at-home productions.

"As broadcasters aim to deliver superior-quality video content for live events, data costs are spiraling out of control," said Samuel Fleischhacker, senior product manager at AVIWEST. "The RACK Series features a next-generation encoder that is extremely powerful, significantly reducing the bit rates typically associated with broadcasting high-quality video in real time over bonded cellular and the public internet."

The RACK Series is designed to be deployed in fixed locations and directly connected on wired IP networks, offering a real cost-effective alternative to satellite or fiber. In addition, the RACK Series can be used on vans or trucks and connected to a roof-mounted AVIWEST QUAD CellLink 3G/4G antenna or KA satellite transmitter, enabling video broadcast from any location around the world, even in the midst of unpredictable and unmanaged network conditions.

Equipped with a user-friendly, intuitive touch screen, the unit supports multiple operational modes including live, record, live and record, file forward, and data hot spot for high-speed internet connectivity. All of these operations are possible in only two taps on the touch screen. The brand-new RACK Series also features a SIP-based intercom to simplify communications between the master control room on the broadcaster premises and remote operators in the field. Another key benefit of the RACK hybrid encoder is its video return function. In less than one second, it enables remote crews to receive the on-air feed from the studio, receive teleprompting information, and ensure the live stream is being delivered properly.

Switch Media Partners with SpringServe to Enable Effective OTT Monetization

Switch Media, a world leader in online video technology, has partnered with SpringServe, a leading US-based independent ad platform provider whose technology is purpose-built for video and OTT. Switch Media’s server-side ad insertion (SSAI) technology has been fully integrated with SpringServe’s ad platform to provide value-added services to OTT providers.

OTT companies that require dynamic ad insertion (DAI) also need an ad server. DAI enriches the current ad inventory – creating more addressable non-cookie-based advertising opportunities. SpringServe’s advertising platform integrated with Switch Media’s SSAI capability helps content owners to monetize their inventory effectively. Using the combined solution means that no additional time is required to test and validate integration. Users have the flexibility to add new data and features to drive targeting and additional platforms can easily be added using a centralized solution.

ASG Strengthens Los Angeles Sales, Service Efforts with Industry Veteran Team of Kym Cannon and Kelli Clark

Advanced Systems Group (ASG), a leading media technology and engineering firm, today announced it has added the team of Kymberly Cannon and Kelli Clark to enhance sales and service efforts across Southern California. Cannon, a regional sales manager, and Clark, a solutions engineer, worked together at Quantum before joining ASG earlier this month.

Before Clark was a solutions architect at Quantum, she served for 23 years as the senior SAN/fiber channel architect and supervising engineer for 20th Century Fox, and also held technical roles for Pixar Animation Studios and Skywalker Sound. Cannon spent seven years as a regional sales manager for Quantum, often partnering with ASG on top strategic accounts. Previously, she was an account manager for Dell EMC/Isilon, HP, CommVault, and HDS.

While ASG has been an established media and entertainment service provider in Los Angeles for almost a decade, the company also supports high-end corporate video clients representing a diverse group of industries in the region. The Los Angeles office is led by Andy Darcy, who relocated to the market in 2018 after previously handling business development for ASG’s New York-based operations.

“This was a rare opportunity to recruit a successful industry team to our Los Angeles operations,” said Dave Van Hoy, president of ASG. “With Kym and Kelli, we look forward to building our customer base across a number of vertical markets, growing our Managed Services efforts, and continuing to lead with service across Southern California.”
