Light Iron Chooses Christie Solaria Projection For Postproduction Needs

Light Iron, a leading postproduction house based in Los Angeles, has expanded its use of Christie Solaria® Series digital cinema projectors offering rich, saturated color, high brightness and sharp, 4K resolution to its ever growing clientele.

A Christie CP4230 digital cinema projector was installed at Light Iron's new facility in New York City


“We’ve used other manufacturer’s 4K projectors when 4K projectors first hit the streets, but the fact of the matter is it’s more important to be the best at something than the first. And the best 4K solution is exactly what Christie brings to the market. With its reliable and proven name, it was an easy decision to make Christie the standard for our screening rooms in both Los Angeles and New York City, with Christie Solaria 2K and 4K projectors in operation at both locations, including a Christie Solaria CP4230, which will be highlighted at the official unveiling of our new facility in New York City tonight,” said Michael Cioni, CEO, Light Iron.
.
“Christie’s all-in-one design allows us to view 4K content without an external cinema server. This allows us to stream uncompressed 4K content from our DI color systems directly to Christie projectors in our LA and New York facilities. This makes the integration of 4K into our technical pipeline nearly identical to our 2K pipeline, and that’s one of the reasons it’s the best projection solution on the market,” added Cioni.

Christie DLP Cinema® Projectors a Hit with Postproduction Houses
“Our product flexibility is gaining us a lot of converts in the postproduction space. One of our key differentiators here is that the user doesn’t have to swap input cards when switching between uncompressed and packaged cinema content, as two slots are standard on the Solaria 4K projectors,” said Don Shaw, senior director, Product Management with Christie’s Entertainment Solutions group. “And as one of these connections is a professional-grade quad 3G-SDI connect, Christie can ensure that post facilities have a robust and convenient digital interface for flawless viewing of 4K digital cinema or alternative content.”
.
After four years in Los Angeles, Light Iron has expanded into New York to help serve the postproduction community there. A pioneer in 4K postproduction projection, Light Iron hopes to demonstrate to the NYC cinema and postproduction community the solid workflows that 4K enables and how easy, cost-effective and quick it is to implement a 4K workflow as an alternative to 2K workflows, which don’t facilitate 4K digital content as well. Light Iron’s New York screening room has a 35-foot throw and a Microperf screen 16 feet wide by 9 feet. The 4K content is played out of a Quantel Pablo Rio with AJA Corvid Ultra video card, while 4K content is fed via 4 by 3G-SDI. The facility at 580 Broadway will be unveiled to a broad cross-section of the industry at its grand opening tonight.
.
“Ours is the only post facility designed for 4K from the ground up. While working with 4K files is becoming common, viewing pixel-for-pixel results is not. The Christie CP4230 expands Light Iron’s creative freedom by enabling real-time 4K monitoring in a calibrated DCI space. Since that’s where the cinema is headed, that’s where Light Iron needs to be. There’s really no one else on either coast that feels as strongly about this as we do,” said Cioni.

GeoBroadcast Solutions Names Jampro Antennas as Exclusive Supplier for MaxxCasting, ZoneCasting Networks

CHICAGO — Terrestrial radio innovators GeoBroadcast Solutions (GBS) announce Jampro Antennas as a technology partner to advance its vision of helping radio broadcasters maximize over-the-air signals and grow revenues.

Jampro joins Harris Broadcast as exclusive technology suppliers for GBS MaxxCasting and ZoneCasting networks. MaxxCasting expands FM signal coverage areas, allowing broadcasters to take full advantage of their FCC-allotted spectrum. ZoneCasting, pending FCC approval, brings hyper-localization to radio through targeted over-the-air content delivery.

Jampro will supply all antennas, combiners and support equipment related to installation of these components. The custom antennas are specially designed for these networks, providing the advanced directivity required to ensure both maximized market coverage and highly-specific regional targeting.

Peter Handy, CEO of GeoBroadcast Systems, notes that Jampro brought a flexible approach to its antenna designs that uniquely fit requirements for MaxxCasting and ZoneCasting deployments. That flexibility extends to custom designs that meet the needs of each broadcaster — highly important as coverage patterns and targeting requirements will differ for each market.

“One critical concern is to minimize conflicts created between transmitting multiple signals across the same market,” said Handy. “Jampro clearly addresses these challenges with custom designs that can increase or decrease directionality. This is perfect for ZoneCasting, where we are geographically targeting content across multiple zones in a single market. Furthermore, it is ideal for spreading coverage into areas of a broadcast market that is lacking a clear over-the-air signal.”

The business benefit of integrating Jampro antennas therefore becomes very clear: A larger audience receives the signal due to their exceptional directionality, which means advertisers reach more listeners. This potentially translates to more advertising dollars for the broadcaster by opening new revenue streams.

Handy adds that GBS representatives had a number of conversations with broadcasters at the 2013 NAB Show that recognize the game-changing capability of ZoneCasting, but in the meantime are very interested in the opportunity to increase the distribution of their over-the-air programming through MaxxCasting. This is a perception that Jampro Antennas President Alex Perchevitch echoes.

“As an industry we have always accepted the fact that the legal signal coverage of a radio station is one model, while the actual signal coverage often falls considerably short of what a broadcasters is allowed to service,” said Perchevitch. “A solution like MaxxCasting that allows you to bridge that gap is not only unique, but very compelling.”

Harris Broadcast and Jampro often collaborate on radio and television transmission projects, bringing proven compatibility to GBS for out-of-the-box reliability. Harris Broadcast will integrate Jampro antennas and combiners across its single-frequency FM transmission networks, which incorporate multiple Flexiva™ transmitters and Intraplex® synchronizers as well as special GBS control software.

About Jampro
Jampro Antennas Inc., established to answer the need for quality broadcast systems at a reasonable price, is a leading supplier of antennas, combiners & filters and RF components for every application in the broadcast industry. Reputed for innovation and customization, Jampro builds each system to the specifications of the individual broadcaster. From the first system delivered in 1954 to those installed today, the Company is committed to consistent performance and quality founded on solid engineering. Today, over 25,000 broadcasters worldwide benefit from the quality and performance provided by Jampro systems. Additional information on JAMPRO can be obtained at www.jampro.com

About GeoBroadcast Solutions
GeoBroadcast Solutions, LLC (“GBS”) was formed in 2009 by founders who collectively have hundreds of years in the radio business. Peter Handy of GBS, Rich Redmond of Harris Broadcast and Alex Perchevitch of Jampro Antenna are amongst the architects and helped develop and test the GBS ZoneCasting technology, currently filed as a petition for rulemaking with the Federal Communications Commission. In 2012, GBS identified and launched MaxxCasting, the technology that helps broadcasters cover more of their signal coverage area. Both technologies are innovative, exciting and revenue generating.

PESA Xstream Sets New Standard for Multi-Source Synchronized Presentations for IP Distribution

Huntsville, Alabama – PESA, a leading U.S.-based custom design and manufacturing company for professional audio and video signal distribution, recently introduced PESA Xstream, a cost effective, comprehensive package for digital media capture, processing, distribution, and storage. Housed in a compact, 1 RU form factor, PESA Xstream simultaneously encodes up to five independent video sources and eight audio sources concurrently from live or recorded video for multi-path H.264 IP distribution over six independent video streams – with no sync or latency issues. PESA will demonstrate the new streaming media appliance at InfoComm 2013 (Booth 2958), June 12-14 in Orlando, Fla.

PESA Xstream captures H.264 IP camera streams, NTSC/PAL or SDI video up to 1080p resolution, video playback, and even computer-based content such as PowerPoint slides, then prepares high-bandwidth MPEG-4/H.264 broadcast streams for enterprise distribution and archive. When multiple sources are captured simultaneously, the streams remain associated and synchronized during the event. Storage options include a PESA internal 2.5-inch SATA drive.

With five individually addressable video outputs as well as an integrated quad-view output, PESA Xstream allows operators to stream live content over IP while simultaneously transmitting live digital content to a quad-view display and/or full screen display. PESA Xstream can also synchronize discrete audio inputs to discrete video and IP video inputs, and offers adjustable audio delay.

PESA Xstream is an ideal solution for varied market applications, including court recording, rental and staging events, telemedicine, virtual classrooms, security and surveillance, and webcasting and remote production. An intuitive Web browser management and control interface provides complete remote capabilities, which can eliminate the need for on-site personnel to stream content to a production facility.

“Producing mixed format, multi-source presentations for IP distribution used to be a logistical nightmare,” said Howard Sutton, PESA executive chairman. “You had multiple vendors, multiple components, sync issues, too much cabling, and multiple management and control systems. PESA Xstream is so much more than a codec. In one box with integrated Web browser management and control, it handles everything – capture, scaling, sync, and more – which improves the viewing experience for your audiences and simplifies installation and operation. The purpose-built PESA Xstream sets a new standard in price and performance.”

PESA also provides access to its Application Programming Interface (API), allowing integrators to tailor applications to specific market segments. For example, PANAX develops video communication solutions for education, government, and healthcare. The company is a PESA Xstream Partner, and has developed its VTW 5080 Digital Media System solution for the education market based around the new appliance.

“I have never encountered a single device such as the PESA Xstream that can adapt to so many multiple video and audio standards, inputs and outputs, in one box,” said Paul Culbertson, vice president of PANAX. “It’s great to not have to use adapters to convert everything before it hits the unit. PESA Xstream provides configuration simplicity and the best streaming video I have seen. We are thrilled to introduce it to the education marketplace.”

“PESA Xstream is a game-changer,” added Malcolm Macallum, CTO of VIQ Solutions, Inc., another PESA Xstream Partner, which is incorporating the system into an end-to-end content management and distribution solution. “The unit simplifies the technology, yet provides a sophisticated combination of features and functions. No other device offers multiple HD video and audio capture from local and remote sources while eliminating associated latency at this price point.”

Pricing for PESA Xstream starts at $9,995 (United States and Canada). For more information, visit PESAXSTREAM.com or contact John T. Wright, senior vice president of sales and business development, at PESAXSTREAM@pesa.com.

LOS ANGELES—Madheart goes its own way. A producer of artfully-crafted advertising of unusual emotional power, the company is led by executive producer Lisa Phillips who has made a habit of zigging when other companies zag. Rejecting the mainstream production company business model based on a “stable” of directors, Phillips has stubbornly maintained Madheart’s boutique status.

NUGEN Audio Announces Updates to LM-Correct and Loudness Management Batch Processor

Dialog Gate Option Enables Automatic Loudness Measurement of Dialog Sections

LEEDS, U.K. — May 16, 2013 — NUGEN Audio, creator of intuitive tools for audio professionals, has released an update to its LM-Correct loudness analysis and correction tool and its Loudness Management Batch (LMB) processor. The update adds a dialog gate option to both tools that enables sound engineers to measure dialog sections within source material automatically.

Dialog gating can be used to automate dialog-anchored loudness measurement and correction, facilitating decisions based on the loudness of sections with dialog in the source material. In conjunction with other loudness parameters, the dialog measure can also be used as an indicator of dialog clarity.

“The addition of a dialog-gated measurement adds an additional level of flexibility to our offline loudness tools,” said Jon Schorah, creative director of NUGEN Audio. “We are committed to providing tools that meet ITU, ATSC (CALM Act), and EBU standards. Adding a dialog gate option ensures our users have the ongoing ability to comply automatically with the full range of broadcast delivery specifications based on current international loudness standards.”

In addition to the dialog gate option, new presets within LM-Correct add a 10-second, short-term loudness sliding window that works in conjunction with the dialog-gated program loudness. Similarly, LMB benefits from the addition of a fully adjustable short-term sliding window parameter, making it possible to adhere to specifications based upon variants of the typical EBU three-second measure.

The updates are free for all current users.

More information about LM-Correct, the LMB processor, and other NUGEN Audio products is available at www.nugenaudio.com.

Anton/Bauer Powers Filmmaker’s Wondrous Footage of the Northern Lights

Philip Clemo Captures the Celestial Light Show in Extreme Cold with Anton/Bauer DIONIC HC and DIONIC HCX Batteries

TROMSØ, NORWAY, MAY 16, 2013—When the U.K.-based filmmaker and composer Philip Clemo traveled to the northern reaches of Norway to capture footage of the aurora borealis (northern lights) phenomenon, he needed a power system capable not only of running his camera for several hours, but able to withstand the extreme cold locations above the Arctic Circle. Shooting on an ARRI ALEXA film-style digital motion picture camera, he turned to Anton/Bauer®, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company, and a premier global provider of batteries, chargers, lighting and other mobile power systems for the professional broadcast, video, film and healthcare technology industries, and its DIONIC® HC and DIONIC HCX batteries, confident they would stand up to the weather during the shoot.

Given his background as a composer, Clemo often seeks to convey ideas in his films without spoken language or text. “What I look for in my filmmaking is an unusual perspective. I want people to look at something they’re familiar with in an unfamiliar way, even to the point of not necessarily recognizing it,” he says. “So I was interested in the abstraction of the aurora and less in the environmental context. I wanted to get in a bit tighter on this amazing wonder.

Clemo had heard that many camera batteries suffer under extremely cold weather conditions. “Some people had told me that when it gets down to -40 degrees Fahrenheit, you might only get 10 percent of the charge. A friend of mine who is a director of photography told me to try Anton/Bauer batteries. He said that if there was any battery that was going to work at low temperatures, it was Anton/Bauer. He was right. The temperatures I shot in ended up being -4 degrees Fahrenheit, and I got the same results as I got back home, when I tested all my equipment in my home in the U.K. I didn’t lose any noticeable power at all.”

Armed with the Anton/Bauer DIONIC HC and DIONIC HCX batteries, Clemo set out to capture the celestial beauty of the aurora borealis. Traveling to Tromsø, Norway, a bustling metropolis situated 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle, Clemo then drove for seven hours into the mountains and took a snowmobile ride for a further hour into the vast, frozen wilderness of northern Norway. After six days in the center he returned to the coast traveling around the fjords. He shot the footage he needed, which he will incorporate into two projects, titled Breath and First Breath. Although he had up to eight batteries with him each day, he averaged just three batteries per shoot. The Anton/Bauer batteries powered his cameras throughout the 12 days of shooting, never losing power in the cold weather.

“The Anton/Bauer support team was very helpful,” says Clemo. “I contacted them about the batteries pretty close to the last minute before I traveled, and they got right on it, supplying me the batteries and giving me advice on how to travel with them, including any travel restrictions I might face. They shipped me batteries in time for my flight out. The batteries worked perfectly. Everything Anton/Bauer told me about how they would work happened just as they said it would. It was great.”

Part of the company’s Logic Series® batteries, the 91Wh DIONIC HC is suitable for powering high-current applications in a lightweight package. Transported as carry-on luggage without restrictions, the DIONIC HC is the perfect lightweight battery for shooting on location. Working closely with cell manufacturers, the HC series incorporates high-capacity cells offering 10 amps. To continually ensure cell protection and performance integrity, a special honeycomb cell pack design protects the cells. An enhanced RealTime® display indicates both fuel gauge and remaining run-time data simultaneously, without requiring any setup. The display incorporates readouts of hours, minutes and remaining capacity, making battery change decisions quick and easy. What’s more, its motion-detection feature incorporates a sleep-mode setting that reduces battery self-discharge, allowing for extended periods of storage with minimal capacity loss. The battery can be “awakened” by the built-in motion sensor. These patented features offer confidence for the camera operator.

The DIONIC HCX is a 124Wh capacity battery with the ability to sustain a 10-amp draw, and run a 40-watt camera with a 20-watt light for two hours. It incorporates the same motion-detection feature with a “deep-sleep” setting, along with the company’s patented RealTime display, as the DIONIC HC.

HARMAN’s JBL Professional Named Official Speaker Provider for The American Pavilion at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival

NORTHRIDGE, California – HARMAN’s JBL Professional today announced that it is the Official Speaker Provider for The American Pavilion at the 66th Cannes Film Festival, which takes place May 15–26 in Cannes, France. The American Pavilion is the center of activity at the Cannes International Film Festival for the American film community, offering membership for professionals, provocative and insightful programming, immersive student programs, the Emerging Filmmaker Showcase and more.

JBL is providing four CBT 70J-1 column loudspeakers for The American Pavilion, which is located within the International Village. Because of the CBT 70J-1′s studio-grade drivers and JBL’s exclusive CBT pattern control, the loudspeakers provide the American Pavilion with superb sonic fidelity and even coverage throughout the space. The system includes four JBL CBT 70J-1 column loudspeakers instead of the 20 distributed loudspeakers that had previously been considered.

The CBT’s “Asymmetrical Progressive Gradient Coverage” sends more sound to the far area of the listening space than to the close areas. This allows sufficient sound to reach the far listeners without overwhelming listeners that are positioned closer to the loudspeakers.

The very wide 150-degree horizontal coverage allows more area in the pavilion to be covered from fewer loudspeaker locations and to ensure that off-axis listeners still hear the same quality of sound as on-axis listeners. Two of the speakers are located at the edge of the tent area, allowing them to also cover the listeners on the deck, who were not covered in previous years. In addition, the low-profile design of the CBT Series provides the pavilion with world-class sound while maintaining a visually discreet appearance.

With the ability to cover the area with fewer speakers, the entire system is driven from a single powered mixer, as opposed to the complexity of a rack system. With the power available from the existing powered mixer, each speaker is powered with 125 Watts.

“We are honored to be named as the Official Speaker Provider for The American Pavilion at Cannes,” said Brian Divine, Director of Marketing, JBL Professional. “JBL has a storied history in cinema, and this year attendees at The American Pavilion can look forward to enjoying the powerful, immersive and nuanced sound that JBL is known for.”

“We are thrilled to have the cutting-edge technology that JBL Professional brings to the table, which will give our members a sound experience beyond compare for all our programming this year,” said Julie Sisk, Founder of The American Pavilion at Cannes.

With a panoramic view of the Bay of Cannes and just a few steps from the Palais des Festivals, where all the major Festival films are premiered, The American Pavilion is now a permanent fixture on the Cannes landscape, proving to be the perfect place to transact business, share ideas and effectively reach the thousands of affluent international travelers who attend the Festival every year.
