WSDG COMPLETES 130,000 SQ. FT. PRODUCTION COMPLEX FOR NON STOP TV IN BUENOS AIRES

BUENOS AIRES: Non Stop TV is a thirty-year-old, full-service TV production complex, which totally lives up to its name. Founded in 1983, Non Stop produces content and provides audio, video and sophisticated post-production services for top rank clients in Latin America, Europe and Asia. With a staff of over 450, the studio turns out over 800 hours of programming each year for Disney Channel, Sony, Fox Sports, History Channel and many other leading broadcast/cinema content producers.

In 2010 this hugely successful facility had far outgrown its original B.A. home. Company principals reached out to the Walters-Storyk Design Group’s Argentine branch for architectural and acoustic design of a new 130,000 sq. ft. facility. The projected home for this major complex was the four-building compound of a former leading film production studio. WSDG was tasked with developing a design program for the entire full-service broadcast production facility.

WSDG Partner/Director of International Relations Sergio Molho, reports that the entire multi-office design team collaborated on developing a multi-purpose, state of the art, facility for Non Stop TV. “This 21st Century movie lot is literally a self-contained city in a Buenos Aires suburb,” Molho says. “The massive project called upon the expertise of members of WSDG designers, renderers, systems integrators and project managers in Europe, the U.S. and Latin America. Our collaborative effort over the past two years has enabled Non Stop TV to far exceed its position as the hub of Latin American entertainment programming production for the foreseeable future,” he adds.

Completed in April, 2013, the new studios feature six individual shooting stages, and more than three dozen individual production, post production and support service suites, distributed throughout the multi structure compound. Non Stop’s largest component is Studio Six, a 10,000 sq. ft. sound stage dedicated to producing original Disney Channel programming for Latin America. Amenities include (5) dressing rooms; make up, wardrobe, video library, dubbing stage, and set construction. Additional support services such as, Subtitle Division, Authorship, Media Asset Management (MAM), Electronic Art Department, Offline Editorial Suites, Multi-Format Production, Audio Recording and Mixing, and Live Transmission are also housed within the complex. Additionally, the facility houses two 5,000 sq. ft. stages, a 4000 sq. ft. stage with a spacious main control room, and a 1000 sq. ft. stage (devisable into two separate 500 sq. ft. shooting stages.)

Technology highlights include a six-channel HD EVS XT series server controlled by an EVS’ IPDirector suite of video production management applications; Final Cut PRO, Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro, Client-server architecture, Centralized Storage, Production Automation, Archive, Fiber Optics Connectivity, and a full complement of cameras, lights, microphones and related gear.

Camera Corps Q-Ball Takes Red Bull Cliff Diving Right to the Edge

BOSTON, SEPTEMBER 19, 2013 – Q-Ball remotely controlled pan/tilt/zoom equipment from Camera Corps, a Vitec Group company with extensive experience in designing specialty camera systems, recently provided dynamic coverage of the Boston leg of the 2013 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series. When the event was held in Boston, it drew more than 25,000 spectators who watched the action from the only “urban cliff” diving platform in the series. A Q-Ball was mounted at the extreme edge of the platform that resided on the Institute of Contemporary Art roof 90 feet above Boston Harbor. Q-Ball supplied close-up coverage of the divers while delivering the excitement, power and grace of the event to the home audience in full HD.

“This is exactly the type of broadcast the Q-Ball was designed for,” comments Camera Corps Managing Director Laurie Frost. “It enabled the Red Bull production team to achieve shots that would have been extremely dangerous, if not impossible, any other way. The production team was able to make full use of the platform-mounted Q-Ball to capture close-up and follow shots of each contestant during the approach, launch and descent. The Q-Ball provided footage from the center of the action without requiring a camera team to operate in a dangerous and potentially distracting location. Each dive was televised both live and in slow motion to capture the full emotion of this extreme sport.”

As one of the most physically demanding sports, the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series invites the best high divers in the world to launch themselves from a platform eight stories above the water. Speeds clocked between 53 and 62 mph are typical and this is where Q-Ball, with its high-precision motors, shines. Pan/tilt/zoom commands from a Camera Corps PTZF joystick-based control unit are sent to the Q-Ball via a two-way optical link from the Red Bull Production facilities, which in turn receive broadcast-quality 1080i high-definition video. The operators were able to follow all the diving action, from the approach and takeoff to the dive and entry into the water, with no tracking problems.

The contest moves to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil before the final in Krabi Province, Thailand.

The Q-Ball has delivered close-up HD broadcast pictures from many very high-profile broadcast events in recent years, including the BBC Proms, Summer and Winter Olympics, international football, motor racing, water sports, tennis, football and rugby. Housed in a robust and weatherproof cast-aluminium sphere of similar diameter to a standard compact disc or DVD, the Q-Ball head comprises a 1080i camera with 10:1 zoom optics plus a fully rotatable pan-and-tilt head. High-precision motors enable the operator to adjust the camera angle from practically any location, including smooth adjustment of vertical and lateral tracking speeds.

The Q-Ball system is available globally for both sale and rental. For more information regarding rentals in the Americas, please contact sister Vitec company Bexel at 1 (800) 225-6185 / www.bexel.com or Camera Corps direct at www.cameracorps.co.uk.

Trollbäck + Company Launches Al Jazeera America With Bold & Modern Branding Package

Strategic design agency Trollbäck + Company (T+Co) recently created the branding package for Al Jazeera America, which launched in 40 million US homes.

The new network will broadcast unbiased, in-depth coverage of domestic and international news for American audiences – more than 14 hours of live news, magazine and discussion programs daily.

Al Jazeera America replaces Current TV (former US Vice President Al Gore’s cable channel). The Qatar-owned broadcaster acquired the network last January before gathering correspondents and executives formerly of CNN, ABC News, NBC News and CBS for its new US-based channel.



To view: www.trollback.com/al-jazeera-america/
On Vimeo: www.vimeo.com/74133845

“Our brand identity was born out of a true partnership,” remarks Patrick Bedeau, Creative Director and Creative Team Lead at Al Jazeera America. “Working closely with Trollbäck, our network’s creative team was able to shape and refine the kind of visual language we sought to help reinforce our promise of journalistic integrity and compelling, impartial news that’s relevant to American audiences.”

“This collaboration was an opportunity for us to be part of history,” says Jakob Trollbäck, Chief Creative Officer at T+Co. “Unbiased information is the foundation of democracy. We need a different media voice – one that’s trusted, independent and professional — and Al Jazeera America is the network offering exactly that.”

To highlight the idea of enlightenment, Trollbäck + Company created a modern look that captures the core qualities of energy and illumination. The comprehensive branding package includes animated logotypes; main IDs; interstitial IDs; news, business, sports and weather opens; and all the screen architecture for the news show.

From the initial discussions, Al Jazeera was very clear that its brand identity had to stand apart from its other territories; moreover, it had to speak with an American voice that resonated equally across a diverse national audience, from the Heartland to the East and West Coasts.

“As an international news organization, Al Jazeera has always focused on serious journalism,” explains Elliott Chaffer, Trollbäck + Company Creative Director. “Emerging in the US market, they will continue to uphold and fulfill their promise to see all sides of a story. It was important that their branding stated, ‘we are here,’ in a bold but not brash way, while appealing to both its existing fan base and those who are looking for real news. The whole identity is connected to the logotype that we made beautifully kinetic, with expressive paths of illumination, as well as dimensionality. You can see many different shapes and facets before it resolves.”

The main IDs incorporate dynamic choreography of light streaks while the interstitial IDs celebrate the vast epic American landscape, positioning Al Jazeera America in the center of it. For the latter, T+Co took 360-degree panoramic shots and stitched them together to form a seamless world using a custom lens they created in Maya to re-film the scenes.



The News, Business, Sports and Weather openers continue the “paths of illumination” theme through narratives that relate to the subject matter. News tackles global and local issues, while business highlights commerce on a micro and macro level. For the Sports open, the paths of illumination are generated by motion capture data of real athletes expressing fluidity, dynamism and speed while Weather shows evocative weather patterns.

For the screen architecture, big bold statements are delivered in a clean modern style, again driving home Al Jazeera’s commitment to clear and to-the-point news reporting. For the typography, Trollbäck+Company continued Al Jazeera’s tradition of Helvetica Neue, a font the news organization has used universally for all of its on-screen graphics.

“Being part of such a groundbreaking and important brand launch in such an important market at this time in history was an incredible experience,” concludes Chaffer. “Al Jazeera America has an ambitious mission to become the go-to network for fact-based, in-depth news. Time will tell how the American public responds, but we are very confident in the strength of the work we did and the integrity of their brand.”

Based on its audio quality and Vintage King’s comprehensive Ethernet infrastructure, VKLA installs permanent system for client demonstration

Los Angeles, CA, September 18, 2013 – On Thursday, September 26, 2013, leading audio manufacturer Focusrite will showcase its acclaimed RedNet range of products at Vintage King Los Angeles (VKLA).

Highly regarded by the Vintage King staff, the RedNet units are now a permanent component of VKLA’s audio setup and will be the subject of ongoing demonstrations in the future.

Demo times are as follows: 10:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 3:00 p.m., followed by a 7:00 p.m. evening mixer. Key staff from Focusrite and Vintage King will be on hand throughout the day.

“RedNet / Dante technology will be relevant to a wide cross section of our clientele, from composers and live performers to multi-room facility owners,” says Vintage King Audio Post Sales Manager Chris Bolitho. “The ability to send low-latency, high-resolution multi-channel audio between systems, racks and rooms using only existing Cat 5 / 6 data wiring and infrastructure has the potential to revolutionize the way so many of them work. It’s exciting to have the RedNet / Dante system permanently installed at Vintage King Los Angeles, making VKLA the premier RedNet / Dante demo facility in Los Angeles.”

Seattle Pacific University Prepares for New School Season with Hitachi Projectors

SEATTLE, Washington, September 19, 2013 — Seattle Pacific University (SPU) is a private liberal arts university, home to more than 4,000 undergraduate and graduate students. The school, located in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle, offers fewer classes during the summer. This time is used for planning and upgrading the technology and A/V equipment in the campus’ 100 classrooms. This summer, SPU has added 36 Hitachi CP-WU8450 3LCD projectors to its A/V system.

“A couple years ago, more than two dozen [non-Hitachi] projectors had to be recalled due to a power issue. Because it happened in the middle of the school year it was very disruptive,” said James Lim, microsystems analyst at SPU. “When we were in the market for new projectors, a strong support policy was obviously our priority and Hitachi’s extended service contract was very appealing right away.”

After installing and receiving positive faculty feedback on previously installed Hitachi CP-X4021N and CP-WU8440 projectors, SPU opted for the CP-WU8450 projectors. With the help of A/V installation firm Proton 360, 80 percent of SPU’s classrooms are now outfitted with Hitachi projectors.

“We’ve noticed that the CP-WU8450 actually seems brighter than its advertised brightness,” said Lim, “They’re bright enough that our faculty have actually gotten used to leaving the blinds open and the lights on in the classrooms!”

The CP-WU8450 projectors, which are networked together via an Extron controller, offer 5,000 ANSI lumens brightness and WUXGA 1920 x 1200 resolution.

“Walking through a classroom that’s outfitted with the CP-WU8450’s is markedly different from walking through other rooms in terms of the projector’s quietness and brightness,” said Lim. “We definitely like the product and will be sticking with Hitachi as long as they keep producing great projectors like this one.”

We designed the look of AroundMe to make better use of animations and visual effects, achieving outstanding image quality and maximizing all the bells and whistles that come with Apple’s new OS.”


Feature Highlights of the New AroundMe for iOS 7 App Include:
