FotoKem Automates nextLAB Integration with PIX System; Improved Process Powers “House of Cards” Dailies

BURBANK, Calif. (December 18, 2012) – The latest version of FotoKem’s award-winning nextLAB™ software for advanced media management now automates the transfer of dailies to PIX System’s industry-leading digital collaboration service. nextLAB transcodes the source media files, and immediately uploads the material and over 60 fields of searchable metadata per take directly into PIX. This strategic relationship increases the efficiency of a dailies workflow, and makes it easier for productions to securely access and leverage not just their media, but all the associated production data.

This improved process has been deployed on a number of projects, including the recent production of House of Cards for NetFlix. The automated nature and integration of nextLAB to PIX for dailies on House of Cards added a new level of data management firepower to the shoot, while keeping the workflow streamlined and simple.

Developed in house by FotoKem’s software team, nextLAB is an on-set and near-location solution for file-based workflows that supports projects from camera to color through editing and archive. nextLAB can manage digital files and metadata for a wide array of cameras in the marketplace – including ARRI, Sony, RED, Canon and Silicon Imaging – and incorporates the Academy Color Encoding Specifications (ACES) architecture.

PIX System’s secure digital collaboration platform is widely used on feature and television productions around the globe by filmmakers, motion picture studios and television networks. Over 700 productions have used the PIX service to view, manage and collaborate on their media during various phases of production and marketing.

Larry Schalit, Senior Vice President of PIX System, comments, “FotoKem shares our dedication to client service and to integrating new technology into file-based workflows. nextLAB is a great example of that commitment. They’ve been very proactive in working with us to seamlessly integrate the dailies workflow for our clients – from the camera through to PIX, the edit room, and on to archive. With nextLAB, filmmakers using PIX can be viewing dailies in our system a couple of hours after being shot. Furthermore, by capturing all of the metadata at the source, our clients are able to easily search and organize material by virtually any attribute. This saves significant time and effort throughout the project.”

FotoKem’s nextLAB was designed to identify, capture, carry and manage extensive amounts of information throughout the workflow from dailies to archive. The metadata gathered in nextLAB and now automatically shared through PIX allows for easy viewing, commenting, collaborating and manipulating of the data on set, at the studio, in editing rooms, at visual effects houses, or by other important stakeholders of a production.

Tom Vice, Vice President and General Manager of nextLAB for FotoKem, notes, “The collaboration with PIX System delivers speed, efficiency and a rich set of metadata to our customers. Their services are the industry standard at the major studios, as well as network and cable television. In combination with nextLAB, we’ve opened up the process for automatic, quick information sharing that is ideally suited to the data that nextLAB gathers and the way filmmakers need to access their material. Additionally, the team at PIX is simply outstanding, and we look forward to working closely with them for ongoing innovation for our customers.”

Bexel’s Falcon Sportscaster Console Knocks Out Clutter in Boxing Broadcast Booth

Cutting-Edge Solution Maximizes Performance and Functionality for On-Air Sports Talent

LOS ANGELES, DECEMBER 18, 2012—As a booth A2, Bob Marcus has spent the past 18 years setting up and connecting audio equipment in the announcers booth for numerous boxing and other sporting events around the country. One of the biggest recurring issues he has dealt with over the years is the clutter and lack of space available in the booth. To remedy that situation, Marcus turned to the Falcon Sportscaster Console, manufactured under the ASG-Products division of Bexel, a unit of the Vitec Group’s Services Division and a leading worldwide provider of broadcast services and solutions.

Designed to meet the needs of U.S. sports broadcasters, the Falcon was created by Bexel in response to customer requests for help reducing the space requirements of the audio equipment in the announce booth. “I first used Bexel’s Falcon for a boxing broadcast this summer and was immediately impressed,” says Marcus. “Announcers rarely have enough room on their tables for all the notes and broadcast-related information, so the smaller the footprint of the equipment that we use, the better. The Falcon is not only the smallest box out there; it comes packed with innovative features. One of its greatest features is that it offers an individual cable that connects to the breakout box so the A2 doesn’t have to carry around a bulky and heavy booth mult.”

The ASG-Falcon provides the on-air sportscaster a “cough” switch, dual talkback outputs and ultra-high fidelity earpieces for reduced listener fatigue. All this is contained in a footprint smaller than a paperback book and allows for cable dressing that further minimizes the critical front-to-back space requirement. The Falcon supports all variety of common microphone/headset connections as well as stereo and mono earpieces.

“I was extremely impressed with the Falcon’s ability to allow a user to turn the back panel to face either left or right. This is something that comes in handy when working in such small confines,” adds Marcus. “On the other boxes, everything comes straight out the back. By having the ability to turn the Falcon’s rear connectors flush left or flush right, the user can place the box tightly against the back of the table, saving critical space. It makes life a whole lot easier. I feel it is important to give credit where credit is due and Andrew McHaddad at Bexel should be recognized for creating such an amazing and functional piece of equipment.”

The Tiffen Company’s Wildly Popular Steadicam Smoothee Is Ready For Action With The Apple iPhone 5

Colour Sound Gets Up Close & Personal with Peter Andre on Tour

West London based lighting and visuals rental specialist Colour Sound Experiment (CSE) is supplying lighting and video (LED screen and control) to the current Peter Andre ‘Up Close & Personal’ UK tour, working with lighting designer Dave Farmer of THC Design.


It’s Farmer’s first tour with Andre, asked onboard by tour director John Proctor, although he has known CSE’s Haydn Cruickshank for many years and worked with the company on several previous occasions. CSE was able to supply both lighting and video in a very competitive package.
The tour is visiting a variety of venues, taking in theatres, concert halls and arenas, so Farmer’s rig is designed with innate adaptability to work in all of these spaces. Farmer’s starting point was a basic concept from show producer Christian Storm of Mass Movement, which included some specific video treatments from which Farmer started building the lighting visuals.
The rear and riser LED screens are made up from 60 square metres of CSE’s BT12 12mm pitch lightweight screen, arranged in three sections with staggered edges to resemble a cityscape. The riser screens add an extra level of surface and also blend seamlessly into the rear screens for stage wide panoramic effects.
Video content – produced by The Clear Image Company – is being played back via a Catalyst media server also supplied by CSE, which was programmed by Hugh Davies-Webb before the start of the tour. The Catalyst is triggered by timecode from the MD for the show.
The lighting was spec’d to cover Andre and his four dancers with general washes and additional specials and effects for the set, which embraces an eclectic collage of genres and styles, complete with theming plus some visual magic and drama thrown in to the high energy mix.
“Overall it had to look big, bold, poppy and up tempo, with a serious amount of dynamic range,” explains Farmer.
CSE is supplying five trusses – front, a kabuki/pyro mid-stage truss, a 6 metre diameter semi-circle and two upstage trusses – one for lights and one flying the LED screens.
Farmer chose 13 x Clay Paky Alpha Profile HPEs as the main moving light sources, together with 10 GLP Impression 120 Zooms and 14 x CP Sharpies.
Eight of the Sharpies are on drop pipes between the three screens, and the other six on the semi-circle truss. Farmer finds them ‘Extremely versatile for high impact moments as well as holding their own, brightness wise, in relation to the LED screens”.
Six Atomic strobes are distributed between the floor and truss, and there are six LED PARs backlighting the risers.
On the floor are four Robe ROBIN LEDWash 1200s, which are used for general stage and dancer washes. Farmer is using them in Mode 1 for the first time, enabling individual control of the LED rings, through which he has created some funky and zappy effects.
He needed an intense green wash for one number coupled with some movement, for which he strobes the LEDWash LED rings making a rippling effect across the stage. He also likes the smoothness of the LEDWash output and the uniformity of the beam, which nicely resembles a traditional incandescent source rather than a collection of LEDs.
Four-lite Moles as always do a great job of the audience illumination – it’s a highly interactive show with lots of communication between Andre and his very enthusiastic fans, a 95% female demographic encompassing a wide range of ages!
Two FOH followspots complete the lighting and visuals package from CSE.
Farmer programmed and is controlling the show from his own Hog 3 console. He comments, “Myself and the production are very happy with Colour Sound who have been great – excellent service, attitude and equipment and fabulous crew!”
He’s joined on the tour by four CSE crew – Toby Lovegrove and Franki McDade on lighting and Phil Dowling and David Kyle taking care of video.

Electrosonic Delivers LED-Illuminated Video Wall for The Weather Channel

When The Weather Channel wanted to upgrade the primary studio set at its Atlanta headquarters, it turned to Electrosonic to install a new video wall to replace the previous display the company had provided. The new system, comprised of 12 Christie(r) Entero(tm) LED-illuminated rear-projection display cubes, is now seen as a backdrop for on-air talent and is a vehicle for live video and map presentations.

“In 2008, we supplied a rear-screen projection edge-blended system with Christie projectors,” explains Electrosonic Systems Consultant Pete Rajcula. “We have an ongoing relationship with The Weather Channel, and when they were looking for a new alternative to the blended system, we suggested Christie’s LED-illuminated DLP cubes, which offer extremely long lamp life, rich color and easy maintenance.”

Rajcula notes that while the former system was state-of-the-art at the time, LED-illuminated cubes have now reached maturity in the market, allowing the Weather Channel to reap the benefits of the technology.

The Christie(r) Entero(tm) LED was the first high resolution LED-based display cube introduced for the control room market. Using solid state illumination, the Entero(tm) LED display cubes feature vivid, wide color gamut performance – with no lamps to replace, no moving parts, and no consumables.

The installation was challenged by the need to do the work on a fully functioning set. Electrosonic installed the wall’s pedestal and cubes, adjusted the geometry and color balanced the screens to match the studio lighting.

“We’re extremely happy with the video wall,” reports The Weather Channel’s broadcast engineer Travis Warner.

The video wall is designed in a 2×6 configuration with dimensions measuring 26.9 feet wide by 6.8 feet high. A three-output Vista Spyder image processor drives a trio of 1-in/4-out distribution amps. Each of the DAs, in turn, drives one of three 2×2 sections of the wall. The video wall does its own processing of each 2×2 section, creating one large dynamic image across the display.

Andy Borum was Electrosonic’s project manager for the installation. “Everything went smoothly even though the studio was in use,” he reports. “The Weather Channel was prepared for our arrival, so we were able to build the wall and make the initial tweaks without disrupting on-air production.”

Electrosonic is an international audio-visual company that creates tailored, state-of-the-art solutions for a wide range of markets including theme parks, museums, control rooms, and corporate meeting rooms.

XL Events Supplies LED for Les Miserables Movie World Premiere

XL Events, working with Premier PR, specified and supplied Pixled FX-11 LED for the World premiere of the movie adaptation of Les Miserables.

Following XL’s work on the Total Recall premiere earlier this year, Premier PR once again called upon XL Events’ technical expertise to provide a suitable outdoor LED solution for the event in London’s Leicester Square.

In addition to the requirement for a ‘weather-proof’ product, the event needed LED which allowed access through the LED tiles for rigging of the lightbox letters forming the glowing Les Miserables logo.

XL Events supplied 60 tiles of Pixled’s lightweight FX-11 to fill the rear upright of the stage where the stars were interviewed by Michael Ball and Emma Willis before the film screening.

The FX-11’s easy maintenance allowed removal of the rear shutters and IMs so that the letters could be attached through the tile.

Mark Rooney, Project Manager for XL Events comments: “It was great to work with Premier PR again, and we enjoy the challenge of finding the right video product to enable them to realise their creative idea for this high-profile red carpet event.”
