NAB2013: Digital Nirvana to Show Monitoring Software and Content Repurposing Solution

Broadcast Monitoring Software includes: Flexible Archiving, Real-time Newscast Exporting, and H.264 Support

Newark, CA– Digital Nirvana’s latest version of software for its flagship broadcast monitoring product, Monitor IQ, will make its U.S. debut at the NAB2013 convention (Booth N3434) from April 8-11th at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The MediaPro IQ content repurposing solution will also be shown at the Digital Nirvana booth.

“We’re very excited about this upcoming NAB show,” said Hiren Hindocha, president and CEO of Digital Nirvana. “Our products are unique in the market and offer capabilities and cost savings that customers are demanding.”

Monitor IQ, for example, is the only broadcast monitoring system that provides centralized management, automatic ad detection, a director’s audio track, as well as an advanced metadata harvester™. Monitor IQ combines the functionality of content recording (HD and SD in full resolution), content searching, retrieve and repurposing, Web publishing, signal monitoring, air-check logging, archiving, ad verification and tracking, and competitive analysis in a scalable networked appliance.

The latest software includes several features that are a direct result of customer feedback received since the last version was released at IBC 2012. Among the new, customer-suggested features are: flexible content archiving, real-time newscast exporting, and H.264 video format support.

“Each of the features comes directly from customer input,” said Hindocha. “We’ve listened to what our customers tell us they need in a broadcast monitoring solution and created a tool that’s tailor made to address their requirements.”

Because the platform is based on open web services (REST) API’s, Digital Nirvana’s software can be easily integrated with third party products and can scale from one to multiple servers and from one to hundreds of channels. All Digital Nirvana solutions are web enabled, so users can access the software through any standard web browser without ActiveX component.

Another feature that will be demonstrated at NAB is Monitor IQ’s loudness monitoring and audio logging capability, including OEM software licensed from Minnetonka Audio Software, Inc. Loudness monitoring is bundled as a standard feature within Monitor IQ essentials, plus and premium versions. Minnetonka Audio’s AudioTools Loudness Measurement module enables Monitor IQ users to measure audio levels, perform quality control monitoring, record and log broadcast signals.

Another unique feature within the Monitor IQ Premier package is the Advanced Metadata HarvesterTM functionality which provides the ability to track any data the system logs and collects from alarms or from the broadcast feed. It can locate where the error occurred in the broadcast signal, collect forensic analysis about the event, and report that data back to the customer. It provides access to the data and to the mapping point of when, where and how that video was recorded. This new feature dynamically enhances broadcast discrepancy reporting by allowing station executives and engineers to hyperlink straight to the reported video and view a problem or issue.

The system has been divided into four packages so that a wide range of broadcasters can take advantage of the company’s technology.

Monitor IQ Starter

This entry-level package offers all the logging functionality necessary for a one- to two-channel system and includes 90 days of low-resolution storage.Searching is based upon keywords, titles, subtitles, descriptions, textual metadata, closed-caption text and imported logs, with filtering by time, date and channel. Recordings can be easily edited, clipped, stored and sent via email or FTP.

Monitor IQ Essentials

Monitor IQ Essentials is a logging and monitoring system that includes all the functionality necessary for broadcasters to ensure regulatory compliance. It includes support for IP as an input source, and loudness monitoring is now bundled in as a standard feature within the package.

Monitor IQ Plus

Monitor IQ Plus includes all of the features found within Essentials and adds several advanced enhancements such as the ability to connect and control Monitor IQ via an iPad, iPhone, or Android interface. This mobile feature makes it easy for field sales reps to show clients their ad content in the context of the broadcast programming.

Monitor IQ Premier

The Premier package extends beyond the capabilities found in the other packages with innovative, new features, such as: ad detection, directors audio track; integration with third party routers and multi-viewers, and advanced metadata harvesting.

MediaPro IQ

The MediaPro IQ content repurposing system for multi-platform distribution offers a low-cost way to repurpose HD clips from cable as well as broadcast. This new solution records encrypted cable feeds in full HD and is ideal for news and sports directors who frequently repurpose content from cable channels. For the broadcast engineer, it eliminates the need to maintain multiple set top boxes, frees up valuable rack space, and removes the cost of multiple DVRs.

MediaPro IQ allows users to easily edit, clip and publish live or recorded content in real-time. Search is based on keywords, program titles, descriptions, textual metadata, closed-caption, as-run logs, traffic logs, alarm and discrepancy logs and time/date or channel filters.

MediaPro IQ is compatible with such web browsers as: FireFox, Safari, Internet Explorer, and Chrome. iPad, iPhone, and Android interface are also available. Video can be exported to Flash, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264, and XDCAM and other formats for content repurposing.

MediaPro IQ is a cost-effective, all-in-one scaled network device based on open API’s for easy integration into other systems. It also reliably records from IP, ASI, ASI/IP, SD/HD-SDI, ATSC, QAM, NTSC, PAL or DVB-T/C/S2 protocols.

HARMAN Studer OnAir 2500 for New Thai Shopping Channel

BANGKOK, Thailand — When Korean company CJ O Shopping Co, one of Korea’s major home shopping channels, decided to launch a 24-hour Shopping Channel in Thailand, they commissioned a new HARMAN Studer OnAir 2500 mixing console.

The new fixed frame Studer console was specified in Korea and sold by 101 Technology Co, part of the Mahajak Group.

A subsidiary of the CJ Group, Korea’s biggest food ingredients manufacturer, CJ O Shopping entered into a joint venture with the biggest Thai entertainment and media group GMM Grammy. The aim is to broadcast, through GMM satellite TV, to 12 million households in Southeast Asia.

The OnAir 2500 was recommended by the Korean investors who were already familiar with the Studer platform. According to 101 Technology Co’s Wiboon Lertkultanon, having come to rely on complete reliability and superior sound quality from Studer, the choice was automatic. “Evidence of Studer reliability can be seen is the Vista 5 that we installed for CH-7 … it has been working 24/7 without failure for the past four years, while the Studer 928 analogue desk which it replaced ran for almost 20 years without problem.

“With the OnAir 2500 the price was again competitive and our team is on hand to support it.”

The basic I/O is configured with six wireless mics, CD player, hard disk player and telephone hybrid — with some special sound FX — while 101 Technology’s chief engineer, Banjongsak Wonggawee, assisted the broadcasters to configure the GPIO to control the many players and LED signs. 101 Technology also handled the operator training.

CJ O Shopping is the fifth of its kind launched outside Korea — the four others are in China, India, Japan and Vietnam.

HARMAN (www.harman.com) designs, manufactures and markets a wide range of audio and infotainment solutions for the automotive, consumer and professional markets — supported by 15 leading brands, including AKG®, Harman Kardon®, Infinity®, JBL®, Lexicon® and Mark Levinson®. The Company is admired by audiophiles across multiple generations and supports leading professional entertainers and the venues where they perform. More than 25 million automobiles on the road today are equipped with HARMAN audio and infotainment systems.

SSL Expands Capability of C100 HDS Digital Broadcast Console with Release of New V6 Software at NAB 2013

New Features Enhance Operational Efficiency

LAS VEGAS – Solid State Logic debuts its new V6 Software for the industry-leading C100 HDS Digital Broadcast Console at NAB 2013 (Booth C2617). Demonstrating ongoing development of the C100 HDS, the V6 Software release offers new features that introduce significant workflow efficiencies for operators.

“The C100 is a mature, proven product that continues to exceed the expectations of broadcasters around the world,” says Piers Plaskitt, CEO of SSL, Inc. “This new V6 software release introduces some significant features that will further improve the speed and efficiency with which engineers can operate. SSL is always listening to its clients and is involved in a process of continual development. The result is a superb broadcast production platform with an incredibly deep feature set that operators love.”

Highlights of the V6 upgrade include ‘Function Key Macros,’ a feature which reduces the number of physical actions required to achieve specific tasks by allowing multiple two state console switching functions to be grouped as a Macro and then actioned via soft keys, GPIs and fader functions. Another feature is ‘HyperRoute,’ which makes the already superior SSL routing system even better. The C100 routing system uniquely allows operators to use a versatile source and destination group-based approach with operation from the actual control surface, rather than a separate computer. HyperRoute introduces an additional destination-based routing structure which has the benefit of displaying destination source assignments without having to re-navigate through the source>destination path. The console’s new ‘Assignable Delay Modules’ make integrating a wider range of external sources into live-to-air feeds quicker and easier. A total of 32 of the 64 available delays can now be routed anywhere, including Aux and Monitor inserts, or external I/O destinations that pick up internal or external sources as inputs. A new ‘Control Surface Screen Saver’ extends the operational life of the console control surface by switching off all of the OLED displays and screens when not in use.

SSL’s ‘Dialogue Automix’ feature has won widespread acclaim as the finest system available for controlling audio levels and maintaining consistent ambience in the fast-paced environment of multi-mic news and panel shows. A new ‘Automix Overide’ function makes the best even better with an option to automatically close the pre fader feed to the Dialogue Automix system when the participants channel fader is closed.

V6 Software for C100 HDS is available now.

Sci-fi Thriller ‘Hero Punk’ Shot with Blackmagic Cinema Camera

Blackmagic Design today announced that “Hero Punk,” an upcoming feature film from writer and director Kanen Flowers and produced by Scruffy.TV, was shot using Blackmagic Cinema Camera.

 

“Hero Punk” is a sci-fi thriller set in 2042 in a dystopian society where the government is working to rid the world of people with mutant abilities. Because more than half of the film was shot on a 1,100 sq. ft. green screen, the team had to mark the virtual world via tracking markers and capture enough latitude in the images to separate the actors from the background, ensuring that lighting the actors would not decompose in the footage.

 

“After shooting some tests, we realized we needed a camera that could handle the richness of the green screen and the fidelity of the tracking markers, but that was flexible enough to support our sometimes ‘run and gun’ workflow where we could grab SSDs and go,” said Kanen. “We also had to stay conscious of our budget and the fact that we needed two cameras for weeks of shooting.”

 

Kanen, along with cinematographers Paul Del Vecchio and Patrick Johnson, found everything they needed in Blackmagic Cinema Camera’s super wide 13 stops of dynamic range, high resolution 2.5K sensor, built in SSD recorder, open file format support and compact design. Shooting in ProRes 442 in a 10-bit color space against green screen, the team was able to easily capture tracking markers and correctly light the actors, preserving their natural look without requiring a tremendous amount of tweaking in post.

 

“We set both cameras at the same f-stop and shot flat, which allowed us to light the talent correctly because we didn’t have any interference from the green screen. The camera’s high dynamic range ensured that when we added the color back later, we could pull a better key in the composite,” said Kanen. “The Blackmagic Cinema Camera was perfectly suited for our workflow. ProRes is a great native codec, and the ability to pop out an SSD with ProRes and seamlessly copy it over to the editing system was amazing. We even edited on site, and the rough composites allowed us to stay on track with what we needed.”

 

Blackmagic Cinema Camera’s ease of use and flexibility were essential in accommodating the production’s workflow and allowed the team to focus on performance, directing and storyline. Shooting 10 pages a day, the team was constantly setting up new shots, experimenting with perspectives, from 12 ft. in the air hovering over actors or sliding along rails underneath them, and numerous handheld and shoulder shots.

 

“During one scene, we had the two cameras on shoulder rigs in a very tight kitchen. The scene would have never happened if not for the Blackmagic Cinema Camera. There was so much movement that a DSLR would have sacrificed quality and any other camera would have been unwieldy and sacrificed movement,” said Kanen. “The Blackmagic Cinema Camera feels like a DLSR but shoots like a professional cinema camera. And it’s so intuitive that I was able to take over shooting one day. It provided us with the freedom to experiment with shots, let us achieve the look and feel that we wanted and allowed us to make the movie we wanted to make.”

 

While the film is still in the final editing and finishing stages, Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve, the world’s most advanced color correction tool, will be used for color grading.
