NAB Chief LeGeyt Stresses Local Broadcast’s Role in Difficult Times President/CEO outlines four key points he seeks to make with lawmakers By Michael Malone NEXT TV

“Welcome to the 2022 NAB Show!” began Curtis LeGeyt, National Association of Broadcasters president and CEO, in his State of the Industry address. “Six words that I’ve waited three years to say!” The 2022 NAB Show is LeGeyt’s first in his new role. He was chief operating officer of NAB before moving up to president and CEO at the start of the year, with Gordon Smith retiring. “There is truly no greater honor than representing your interests in the halls of government every day,” he said, “and I cannot imagine a more exciting or more important time to take the reins of this great association.”

01-16_NAB22_DAY3.indd 4

LeGeyt spoke of the role local broadcasters have played amidst the pandemic, civil unrest and attacks on democracy. “Through everything, you were — and are — a leading voice in helping communities sort through a multitude of information and emotions,” LeGeyt said, “while also striving to find common ground and common good.” He mentioned broadcasters’ ability to bind the communities they work in, while other media often divides them. He noted “next generation” technologies that make broadcast television even more powerful, including ATSC 3.0, 5G, streaming and mobile video, and new developments that are leading an evolution in radio. “The data capabilities of HD Radio and the connected car give

broadcasters powerful new ways to build and extend their listener relationships,” he said. LeGeyt described the four areas he’s working on with policymakers. “First, Congress must take action to rein in the gatekeeping ability of the Big Tech giants who are stifling the economics of local news,” he said, noting how local broadcasters lose some $2 billion annually when their content is accessed through Google and Facebook. Next, LeGeyt said, lawmakers “must modernize media-ownership laws to reflect the realities of the marketplace.” Google and Facebook control around 77 percent of locally focused digital advertising, he added. Third, NAB urges the FCC

“to reorient how it thinks about broadcast policy more broadly,” LeGeyt said. He added that broadcast’s ability to function in the public interest is premised on “its economic viability.” His final point for policymakers is urging congressional support for the Local Radio Freedom Act, which opposes a new performance fee on local radio stations. “Broadcasting is more than a technology. It is a public service — interwoven in the fabric of our communities,” said LeGeyt, sharing a story about Doug Kammerer, meteorologist at NBC’s WRC Washington, who was live on the air when he saw a tornado on the radar, and called his children to warn them while still broadcasting. “Doug is one of thousands of local broadcasters providing these kinds of lifelines in their communities every day,” LeGeyt said. He concluded, “My hope as your president and CEO is for us to continue our work together to always be there for our communities and give Americans the trusted local journalism only broadcasters can provide.” Rob Hubbard of Hubbard Broadcasting said LeGeyt delivered a strong presentation. “Curtis has been doing a great job and will continue to do great,” he said. Asked what about the address stood out for him, Hubbard said, “the focus on what we do to help our communities.” Walter Podrazik, a lecturer at

Following LeGeyt’s remarks, Caroline Beasley, CEO of Beasley Media Group, was given the National Radio Award, which honors outstanding leadership in radio. “My service to the radio industry has always come from a true love for the business,” Beasley said. “I grew up in it.” Beasley said radio broadcasters have a more robust opportunity to deliver compelling content than ever before. “I don’t know about you, but I’m very excited about what the future holds,” she said.

Following recorded statements from President Joe Biden and former President Bill Clinton, among others, an emotional Smith said he is accepting the award not for the recognition of what he has accomplished, but “as a reminder that there is still much yet to do.” He referred to himself as a “foot soldier” in the broadcast battle.

CONVERSATION

FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel (left) chats with NAB President and CEO Curtis LeGeyt at a Monday morning keynote discussion.

Rosenworcel: ‘We’ve Turned the Volume Down and Ramped Up the Activity’ Touts agency’s bipartisan approach in first appearance before broadcasters as FCC chair By Daniel Frankel NEXT TV

In her first NAB Show appearance since her designation as Federal Communications Commission chair, Jessica Rosenworcel conceded that the introduction of a fifth commissioner would solve the agency’s current 2-to-2 political gridlock, but she’s not losing any sleep over it. “We’ve got to figure out how to work together, or we don’t get anything done,” she told NAB President and CEO Curtis LeGeyt during a Monday morning keynote discussion.

01-16_NAB22_DAY3.indd 8

Whereas previous FCC administrations added to the cacophony of divisive political noise emanating from the Beltway, Rosenworcel said that five months into her administration as the FCC’s first permanent female chair in its 87-year history, the group has simply been given too much to do by Congress to fight amongst itself. “We’ve turned down the volume and ramped up the activity,” Rosenworcel said, citing initiatives ranging from the CARES Act to the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. “But yes,” she conceded, “I’m

looking forward to the day when we have five commissioners.” It was a cordial discussion between a new FCC chair and an also-new NAB chief, who assumed his role in January. The pair grew up just 20 minutes down the road from one another in Connecticut. LeGeyt, a former prep basketball player, noted that his high school was 4-0 against Rosenworcel’s alma mater. Sharing her connection to and affinity for local media, Rosenworcel recalled her teenage fondness for the local radio station WTIC-FM and its “Prize Patrol” promotion, which called for

aspiring winners to place a bumper sticker on their cars — an act her parents wouldn’t concede to. “I was so resentful, which is probably why I’m up here telling you about it today,” said Rosenworcel “We all have so many choices for content,” she said. “But when I get in my car, I want to hear someone from the town I live in.” Steering the discussion to policy specifics, LeGeyt mentioned the deployment of ATSC 3.0. Rosenworcel works to position the FCC as a facilitator and partner to station operators, she said. The agency wants to enable stations to use ATSC 1.0 and ATSC 3.0 simultaneously, so they can experiment with the latter. “The framework the FCC has for ATSC 3.0 is the right framework,” she said. “It gives broadcasters a chance to experience, develop use cases and find out what works at scale. “We want stations to come to us and tell us what they’re seeing,” Rosenworcel added. “If there’s a hurdle in our rules, maybe we can fix that.”

“I’m looking forward to the day when we have five commissioners.” JESSICA ROSENWORCEL FCC CHAIR

Asked by LeGeyt in the broad-reaching discussion about the topic of diversity, Rosenworcel conceded that her own pioneering position makes the issue a priority with her. She said the FCC is aggressively gathering data on the broadcast industry and noted it will be helpful for the NAB in achieving its diversity goals. “What we see on our airwaves says so much about who we are,” Rosenworcel said. l

Radio Leaders: “We’re Just Getting Started” Audacy, iHeart Media chiefs weigh in on medium’s extended relevance By Elle Kehres RADIO WORLD

The radio industry continues to make space for itself — reimagining operations, highlighting its importance in times of crisis and grabbing new technology by the lapels. On Monday, Audacy President and CEO David Field and iHeartMedia Co-Founder and CEO Bob Pittman gathered for the keynote “Transforming Radio in the Audio Renaissance,” which broke down how the radio industry is pivoting away from old norms to new. More than two years into the pandemic, industry leaders have had to embrace change, make their product malleable to multiple mediums and cater to changing audience needs to survive. Pittman said the pandemic also provided greater opportunity for listening, especially with the rise of emerging technologies and audio platforms like smart speakers and podcasting. “The sense I get is that we’re just getting started,” he said. Pittman said the challenge for radio isn’t about remaining relevant. “I think the challenge for us will be just to monetize as best we can,” he said. Echoing those sentiments, Field said it’s time for radio to get its “fair share” of advertising, something he said currently hinders the industry from reaching its full potential. “We have not been able to crack that code,” Field said. “That’s what keeps me up at night — that historically we’ve been unable to do that as an industry. “We question the efficacy of

01-16_NAB22_DAY3.indd 10

what we do,” he continued. “We’re our own worst enemy. But with the extraordinary products we offer our audiences, we are on the cusp of radio and audio surging forward.” Pittman and Field said the industry will need to make radio relevant for all clients and become “user friendly” for advertising. While garnering its fair share of funding will take time, the presenters said that hasn’t Bob diminished the qualPittman ity and reach of radio content. Recent studies show radio remains at the top of the pack in terms of trust and influence. Throughout the pandemic, Pittman said radio has created a deeper bond with audiences and in turn has increased its value. Pittman said radio continues to provide a comforting presence in these uncertain times, “keeping people company,” when driving. Despite it being the oldest of all electronic media, AM/FM radio still holds the top position of in-car media according to Edison Research. “We’re the ones riding in that empty seat next to them,” Pittman said. Both Pittman and Field said radio’s strong personal relationships with consumers contribute to its higher levels of trust — invaluable both in everyday life and in times of crisis — and that is something neither CEO is willing to sacrifice. “We play a really important role in this society,” Field said. “It is central that we keep the integrity of our broadcast stations.” Moderating the session were NAB President and CEO Curtis LeGeyt and April Carty-Sipp, the executive vice president of industry affairs at NAB. l

THE CREATIVE PROCESS

John Venzon (left), ACE, editor of the film“The Bad Guys,” and Pierre Perifel (center), the director of “The Bad Guys” at the “Good Is No Fun at All: The Making of `The Bad Guys’” session moderated by Carolyn Giardina, tech editor, “The Hollywood Reporter.”

How DreamWorks Animation Made “The Bad Guys” Animated action comedy’s director, editor go deep into the creative, technical weeds By George Winslow TV TECH

NAB Show attendees got a master class in creating a big-budget animation film on Monday as the editor and director of “The Bad Guys,” the recently released DreamWorks Animation film, walked the audience through their creative process, using an opening scene to show how it was developed from simple line drawings into the final animation. Both director Pierre Perifel and film editor John Venzon, ACE, stressed that the process of working on an animated film is very different from a live-action movie, where scripts are written, scenes filmed and then the footage is edited. In animation, much of the work is centered around editing.

01-16_NAB22_DAY3.indd 14

Venzon noted that people often think editing animation is a simple process of piecing together the art. “And I say to them, no, no, no, we edit the movie first and then we shoot it,” Venzon said. “Imagine if you came on two years ahead of time, and you sat with your director and your writer and your producer, and you reworked and reworked and reworked the movie and then only after you were happy with the movie, you would then go out and shoot it? That’s animation editing. The first two years are really figuring out the story.” This reflects the fact that animation is expensive, Perifel added. “You can have two animators working for three and half months to animate a scene,” he said. That means the story and how it will look must be established well

before the animation starts. To illustrate this creative process, Perifel and Venzon showed a series of clips, starting with a rough hand drawn animation of the opening scene.

That’s animation editing. The first two years are really figuring out the story.” JOHN VENZON, ACE EDITOR, ‘THE BAD GUYS’

The new DreamWorks Animation action comedy is based on The New York Times best-selling book series. It revolves around a crew of animal outlaws. The first clip shown introduced the animals with an opening clip of a fast-

paced bank robbery using simple line drawings. This was exciting but failed to build up the characters in a way that would make them likable enough to carry a feature film, Perifel said. So in subsequent clips, Perifel and Venzon explained how the characters were refined in a way that created an interesting family of animal predators that were about to attempt their most challenging con yet — becoming model citizens. These changes develop with increasing sophistication up to the last clip with the final animation, music, etc. By that time, the potentially unlikeable cast of a wolf, snake, shark, piranha and tarantula had been recast as a family that robs banks but doesn’t care about money. “We wanted the audience, especially moms who bring their young kids to a movie called `The Bad Guys,’ understand that it’s all about having an activity that they all do together as a family. Money is the last thing in the world on their mind. It’s more like getting back at all the people who prejudged them and were prejudiced against them.” l

Q&A

Bill Mandel, Co-Manager HDR10+ Technologies LLC What technology trends will you be following most closely at NAB Show this year? The expanding migration of the creative community and distribution platforms to an all-Ultra HD workflow. In addition to both 4K and 8K resolution, higher frame rates, deeper color and wider color gamut, we’re seeing a greater emphasis on High Dynamic Range applications

Amazon Web Services Elemental Mediatailor W3500 | Amazon Web Services has updated its Elemental MediaTailor to support live sources in Channel Assembly. The feature allows for the use of live streams from an origin as scheduled sources for a linear channel. Elemental MediaTailor already allows the reuse of transcoded and packaged HLS and DASH streams from existing video-on-demand catalogs. VOD-only channels allow for the creation of a basic channel priced using the same Channel Assembly rates. For on-demand content and live sources, a standard channel configuration will need to be used at a higher cost per hour. Channel Assembly with AWS Elemental MediaTailor lets users create OTT-delivered linear channels at a low running cost by using existing multi-bitrate encoded and packaged content.

in general, with particular emphasis on a variety of new tools for HDR10+ production. What are the top business challenges for 2022 facing companies or your customers in the media and entertainment industry? Rather than looking at the challenges of Ultra HD, we prefer to promote its exciting new creative opportunities, based on the many benefits HDR10+ provides. Along with vastly improved video quality, there’s robust standardization, global certification and no licensing fees; plus, seamless compatibility with the established HDR10 ecosystem. This is why HDR10+ is supported by a growing number of leading companies, many exhibiting here. This includes Black Magic Design, Evertz, Grass Valley, Harmonic, Panasonic and more than a dozen others. Sponsored Content

Is Remote Production Here to Stay? Flexibility, cost-efficiency and work-life balance are among benefits By Peter Suciu TV TECH

It was fortunate for broadcasters and video production teams that migration to the cloud was well underway when COVID-19 began to affect the world in 2020. Stations and film crews were able to pivot quickly, creating remote production solutions to meet the demand by viewers for more content who were stuck at home. Is this the new norm for production workflows? “During the pandemic [broadcasters] jumped into whatever lifeboat they could find,” said Larry Thaler, CEO of The Video Call Center. “Production was done with Skype, Microsoft Teams and even Zoom — whatever we could use to get things on the air, and business cobbled it all together.” The Video Call Center is showcasing its Airfirst platform, an

17-48_NAB22_DAY3.indd 18

end-to-end enterprise-level system designed for production teams to connect with guests anywhere in the world for TV, streaming, live or corporate events. “We have a customer who is using it to connect with refugees in Ukraine,” said Thaler. “We’ve seen the tools that can consolidate the workflow; and the controls that can bring it together will be the next step in remote production.” Thaler is a speaker for today’s CM|IP and Future of Delivery’s session “The TV Industry’s New Normal — Lessons Learnt From The Pandemic,” taking place in the CM|IP Theater, 11:20 a.m.– noon, and is open to all registered attendees. REMOTE ACCELERATION

In many ways the pandemic simply accelerated the move towards remote production, and it is unlikely that everyone will be

returning to the office or production facilities. “The assumption was that this would be for a short period of time. It has been two long years now, and during the pandemic, there was a realization that remote production could save money,” said Thaler. “We’re seeing the savings in money from not needing to bring a guest into a remote studio — and the guests can do this more easily from their homes.” “During the pandemic, people had a chance — involuntary as it was — to try out workflows that they had not tried previously,” said Dan Pisarski, vice president of engineering at LiveU. “Cloud technology has changed all this, and it has had a pretty big impact in the ability to work remotely.” Pisarski will present today’s session “Adopting New Cloud Workflows and Making Live Happen in This New Normal,” from

9:15–9:35 a.m. The session is part of the Broadcast Engineering & IT Conference and an NAB Show Conference Pass is required. “The move to virtual production really picked up during the pandemic,” said Kari Grubin, who heads the on-set virtual production initiative for SMPTE’s RIS (Rapid Industry Solutions) program. “What was found is that you don’t have to have as many people travel to these events. You can have a crew build a set and not travel.” Yet, the pandemic alone can’t be credited with the move to remote production. “It’s obvious over the last couple of years that everyone was forced to be creative and push remote production forward. I’d dare say that more advances were made in the last couple of years than in the previous decade,” said Mike Flathers, chief solutions officer at Signiant. NEW NORMAL COULD BE A HYBRID

It has been suggested that in 2022 and beyond we’ll see a hybrid approach that combines some of the pre-pandemic production methods mixed with what was learned during the pandemic to create greater efficiency. “There may be companies that depend on a large workforce inhouse, and some of those people will need to come back,” said Grubin, “but I expect we’ll see a

hybrid approach as more people continue to work remotely.” “What we have to remember is that we’ve been doing a lot of this since the silent age with rolling backgrounds on sound stages,” Grubin said. “However, the technology has advanced considerably and now it is to the benefit of the production teams and the audience.” Viewers also adjusted to the new normal. “Now that we are returning to the studio, we’re still seeing that instead of connecting with guests from a remote studio, viewers are accepting that we’ll see them from their homes, even as anchors are back in the studio,” added Pisarski. “We found that talent can do some things remotely without everyone having to be in the same room.” BRINGING IT TOGETHER

AVT Audio Video Technologies GmbH is among the exhibitors offering solutions to help production teams benefit from this new normal. The company facilitates remote production scenarios and continues to develop features for this need. That includes its Telephone Hybrid systems that offer remote production capabilities. “Our optional features Pretalk Streaming and the new MAGIC Collaboration Server offer solutions that eliminate workflow

differences between working remotely vs. in a production studio,” explained Lukas Mahler, junior marketing and sales manager at AVT. “Both can be found in the options of our flagship system MAGIC THipPro. This feature is used by German public broadcasters in large scale, as many screeners are still working from home.” An advantage that it offers is that, without any additional equipment, full productivity can be achieved remotely without compromises. “Additionally, we now offer the MAGIC Collaboration Server, which allows reporters, remote staff or external callers to connect to the telephone hybrid via MS Teams,” added Mahler. “This way remote reporting or calling in with high quality is easy, and independent from the telephone infrastructure.” CHANGES HERE TO STAY

Remote production may have been cobbled together, but in 2022

and beyond vendors will play a role in ensuring they are on the same path. “This year and next will bring more ‘integrated’ out-of-the-box, tried, true and tested solutions in the form of mix-and-match building blocks allowing freedom of choice around best-of-breed point technologies,” added Signiant’s Flathers. “Kind of thinking of the ‘powered by’ type of marketing with true collaboration between vendors rather than pushing a one size fits all, single vendor model.” Perhaps the biggest lesson of the past two years is that there was an acceleration to the adoption of cloud-based technologies and there is no going back. “We can get by as long as we have the right tools in place,” explained Gabriel Baños, CEO and founder of cloud-based graphics provider Flowics. “Many of the changes we’ve experienced are here to stay, even post pandemic. As an industry, we found that new production workflows could be more cost-efficient, more flexible

and offer a better work-life balance for production crews.” Baños will participate in today’s CM|IP and Future of Delivery’s session “Turning to the Cloud to Reduce TV Service CAPEX And OPEX,” 2–2:40 p.m., in the CMIP Debate Theater. “I believe we’ll see more producers building anticipation and awareness of their productions by using online platforms to drive more and more people to their digital properties and to generate larger viewer interaction,” he said. l

DASHBOARD REINVENTION

WHY THIS MATTERS The way broadcast radio looks and functions in vehicle dashboards is evolving. New technologies are driving these changes, and broadcast radio engineers and managers can help shape those decisions.

A DTS AutoStage tuning screen is displayed on the MBUX Hyperscreen of a Mercedes EQS electric vehicle. Note the screen in front of the passenger, which here shows a navigation page with a “Radio” icon.

Broadcasters Look for ‘Clarity of Fit’ in New Infotainment Systems Ensuring radio is integrated into Google’s open-source Android Automotive system is a priority By Randy J. Stine RADIO WORLD

The car dashboard of old has been replaced. The radio knob may be gone but radio broadcasters are working with carmakers to remain visible in the dashboard and not buried in some complicated set of menus on a touch screen. Radio observers say the pandemic didn’t slow the adoption of tech in the dash as automakers pivot to infotainment centers. In

17-48_NAB22_DAY3.indd 22

fact, experts say the adoption of systems such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto accelerated with automakers seeking ways to possibly monetize the dashboard. The new infotainment center world is already here, picking up where old dashboard technology left off. The influx of in-vehicle entertainment options for drivers and passengers shows no sign of slowing down. Even co-driver displays targeting front seat passengers in connected cars are now

being included. John Clark, executive director of NAB PILOT, says the broadcast industry should be paying very close attention to the overall dashboard experience. “The entire interface, or interfaces where there are multiple screens, the size of those screens, the options available all make up the overall experience. Radio is certainly a part of that and to remain strong in the dash, the radio experience must be engaging,”

Clark said. “That means complete metadata, information that enhances the in-car experience, and services that delight the driver and passengers.” NAB PILOT, Xperi and several major radio companies, including iHeartMedia, Audacy and Beasley Media Group, are part of a group that has been working to ensure that radio is integrated into Google’s open-source Android Automotive operating system. Clark says preliminary work on the Android Automotive project has been completed with some preliminary conversations with Google. Android Automotive OS, which is distinct from Android Auto, where the system runs on the user’s phone, is expected to be available in about 50 percent of new cars in the next seven years. General Motors, Ford, Audi and Stellantis are among the car manufacturers with plans to integrate the platform. INTERNET CONNECTIVITY

Meanwhile, the number of cars that support internet connectivity has been expanding for years and that trend will only accelerate, broadcast insiders say. Combined with more “native” or integrated third-party apps in the dash, many enabled by Android Automotive, it will be even easier for pure-play audio platforms like Spotify and Apple to gain premium positioning in vehicle entertainment platforms, according to Joe D’Angelo, Xperi senior vice president, Broadcast Radio & Digital Audio.

David Layer

“While broadcasters can offer their content via apps, the defense of over-the-air services requires innovation, speed and consistency on a global scale. DTS AutoStage is the only platform that meets the requirements of listeners, OEMs and broadcasters alike,” D’Angelo said. Scale, innovation and a sustainable business model will determine how well radio can defend its position and remain the dominant audio source in the car, he said. D’Angelo points to the NAB

Show exhibit floor as another showcase to allow broadcasters a chance to see the next generation of DTS AutoStage, enhanced with recommendations, personalization and an array of addition content, all generated by broadcasters. PERSONAL PROGRAMMING

“As consumers expect a more content-first, personalized experience across all media, Xperi has enhanced DTS AutoStage. We’ve leveraged our extensive video and music metadata experience and the DTS AutoStage infrastructure

to completely modernize the radio discovery and in-car listening experience,” said D’Angelo. “Drivers will now be offered a personalized, curated list of stations, programming and podcasts to connect with broadcasters like never before without the need for an app.” David Layer, vice president, advanced engineering for NAB, says the radio industry also should be watching the adoption and rollout of all-digital AM in the United States. All-digital AM gives broadcasters a chance to provide a more technologically competitive service with high fidelity — and importantly noise-free — audio, Layer said. “And perhaps most importantly, all-digital AM has the ability to deliver metadata to listeners

FIRESIDE CHAT

THE BUSINESS OF TELEVISION

Byron Allen: Broadcasters Can Lead the Way Entertainment Studios chief excited about industry developments By Kent Gibbons BROADCASTING & CABLE

Media mogul Byron Allen said he’s excited about NAB Show’s return to Las Vegas, about broadcasting and digital media and about the 40th anniversary of Allen Media Group-owned The Weather Channel. Allen will sit down tomorrow for a fireside chat with former NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith. Allen Media Group owns 27 TV stations along with pay TV channels including The Weather Channel, which is launching a Spanish-language outlet as a free streaming channel later this year. Climate change awareness makes the service important, he said. “The Weather Channel is leading the charge and leading the conversation in ‘let’s work together and let’s combat climate change and global warming,’” he said in a recent interview. Allen was reportedly interested in buying Tegna, which recently agreed to be sold to private equity-backed Standard General for $8.6 billion including $3.2 billion in assumed debt. Allen said he could not comment on Tegna but that he remains interested in buying TV stations, especially affiliates of Big Four networks. “We’re on the hunt, big time,” he said. AMG has been launching free ad-supported streaming services, including Sports.TV, TheGrio.TV and HBCUGo.TV, along with Local Now and The Weather Channel en Español, which is launching in the second or third quarter of this year. Broadcasting and cable outlets including his Entertainment Studios Networks still interest

95 percent of them want to lean in. There’s that 5 percent that tries to minimize, which is why I sued McDonald’s for $10 billion.” That suit, claiming McDonald’s has discriminated against Black-owned media companies (including The Weather Channel and ES Networks) in ad buying, is working its way through federal courts. “I think that this industry has a huge opportunity to be the leader, make an example and show the rest of corporate America how to do it and how to help us all be better and achieve something that really is long overdue,” Allen said. “It’s something we need to put behind us and do the right way and make us all better and

In today’s session “A TikTok Tale: Entertainment That Connects,” Carly Zipp, global head of B2B Marketing at TikTok, will share the story behind this cultural reset. In a Q&A session with NAB’s Jonathan Toomey, vice president of Content Design and Development, Zipp will delve into how TikTok was engineered to entertain, how it captured the world’s imagination, and how it transcended social media to reshape the way that people experience content and connection. She will also share tips for attendees on how to take up primetime slots in this new world and connect with their audiences on a deeper level. Zipp, a seasoned marketing and communications professional with more than 15 years of experience across tech, advertising, entertainment and sports, is passionate about storytelling and creating impact for brands. Attendees will walk away from this presentation with a deeper understanding of TikTok’s cultural significance and how the future of entertainment will connect us all.

VENDOR INNOVATION

AoIP and Remote Workflows Bring Change for Audio Are remote and in-studio work both the new norm? By Steve Harvey MIX/PRO SOUND NEWS

Audio production has gone through some changes since broadcasters were driven to develop remote workflows in response to worldwide pandemic lockdowns. Are the changes they made permanent or are broadcasters returning to their previous ways of working? Dee McVicker, marketing director for Wheatstone, believes that working remotely is here to stay, but not at the exclusion of working in-studio. “Broadcasters are doing both, and at the same time,” she said. One knock-on effect of the pandemic is that everything is getting smaller, including news sets, studios, even the number of staff, she said. “In many televi-

AoIP, which was already being adopted by broadcasters at an increasing rate pre-pandemic, enabled the quick switch to remote workflows two years ago. Now, said Dave Letson, Calrec’s vice president of sales, production is routinely on-site, off-site, hybrid

Virtualization has come to the forefront as a result of the move to remote workflows. sion stations today, it’s down to a director and a producer to run the switcher, the teleprompter, the audio and everything else a staff of 10 did before.” Consequently, McVicker says, there has been a sea change in the way broadcasters think about audio. “The Tekton 32, being shown for the first time at this NAB Show, is probably the best example of a mixer that strikes that balance between automation and audio as a workflow on the one hand, and touchscreen interface on the other, for the producer or director who has to adjust EQ, fix levels and mix-in feeds while busy doing five other jobs at the same time,” she said.

or even all combined. “AoIP has accelerated these workflows, but Calrec is still selling a mix of technology, and while MADI, AES and SDI are still standard connections they are starting to decline as more connectivity migrates to ST 2110.” Berny Carpenter, audio products manager for TSL, reported that remote production specialist Game Creek has built GCV Anywhere kits from existing IP-ready equipment, including TSL’s MPA1-MIX-DANTE audio monitor. Backhaul technology allows operational staff to work from remote locations,

vastly reducing the on-site presence required for productions, he said. Simon Browne, vice president of product management for ClearCom, also sees dispersed remote workflows as the new normal. The company’s new Station-IC for PC desktops enables remote users to communicate as if they are on an intercom panel in a studio center. “The Station-IC PC application connects back to the station intercom over IP and is configured as an intercom panel within the same management tool as the local system, sharing all the same

functionality and assets,” Browne explained. The new app joins Agent-IC for tablets and mobiles in Clear-Com’s virtual intercom client portfolio. Clear-Com’s Eclipse-HX systems provide direct connection to IP devices over ST 2110, Browne said, and there is increasing interest in the IPMX open standard protocol, particularly among AV customers. VIRTUALIZATION

Virtualization has come to the forefront as a result of the move to remote workflows. “We can now run program instances of a mix engine on a regular HP or Dell server without having to add a specialized piece of hardware,” Wheatstone’s McVicker said. “We

Four independent mixing environments can run from a single Calrec ImPulse core wherever in the world it is located, with each independent mixer accessing up to 1458 paths, Letson added.

Head of Video Strategy & Market Development, Data Center and Communications Group AMD What is the top business challenge for 2022 facing companies or your customers in the media and entertainment industry? We actually see three main business challenges this industry is facing. The need to create content faster, produce it from anywhere, and deliver it everywhere — securely and instantly. This is driving companies to look for cloud-based solutions that scale quickly, and that can deliver real-time, live-video content at ultra-low latency. AMD-Xilinx, together with our partners, is proud to be at the heart of products, services and experiences that push the envelope of what’s possible in broadcasting.

sentations that are available to the consumer will be key,” and will ensure a consistent level of quality across the various distributions of each broadcast, he said. TSL’s SAM-Q-NET, launched recently in response to customer demand, offers expanded networking capabilities with native support for ST 2110-30 or AES67, Carpenter said. NMOS

and REST API allows any audio source on the network to be brought to the front panel and mixed, soloed, analyzed and monitored. “The SAM-Q platform is revolutionary for audio monitoring as the same unit can be configured in multiple ways to suit different operational positions, allowing it to be rolled out across a facility,” Carpenter said. l

FROM THE

SHOW FLOOR

What technology trends will you be following most closely at NAB Show this year? Ultra-low-latency applications are driving the majority of growth in media so we’re following new codecs and architectures like AV1. We’re also watching data center and cloud technology that need higher density video processing with better economics and reduced footprints, edge and 5G technologies. And of course, we’re involved in new approaches enabling full-application acceleration for end-toend optimization, including things like SRT, WebRTC, and AI and ML for smart streaming.

DIELECTRIC FM PYLON ANTENNA

W7107 | Dielectric is introducing a pylon FM antenna. It said the FMP line will be “the broadcast industry’s first slot cavity microstrip FM antenna product family.” Pylon antennas, which are used in television, are notable for high efficiency, low windload, multicasting capabilities, pattern flexibility and small tower footprint. The company said it has adapted what was long a solution for mostly single-channel TV operations for both broadband TV and FM broadcasting. They include reducing the antenna Q factor, which is said to improve the bandwidth from one to 20 percent; and stabilizing the H:V ratio across the band. The 20 percent bandwidth translates to full FM band operation, which is the key goal of the FMP antenna’s design, according to the company.

Minimizing the Impact on the Environment PHOTO CREDIT: Philip Steury/Getty Images

Sustainability is important to the M&E industry

By Peter Suciu TV TECH

The media and entertainment industry has a place at the table when it comes to having an impact on the environment and is taking steps to do its part. An unexpected side effect of the global COVID-19 pandemic was the savings in costs to production facilities and stations as they shuttered and staffs starting

worked from home. As the world has settled into its new normal, production companies are sending fewer people to work on large events, which is offering savings in a green way. “It hasn’t just been good for the bean counters, but it offered sustainability as well,” said Dan Pisarski, vice president of engineering at LiveU. “It isn’t just the dollars that are being saved, but possibly the environment. Sending a small

army of personnel and some really big trucks has an impact and we have to take stock of that.” Tracing it back down to the manufacturing of those assets, there is no denying it isn’t exactly the most environmentally friendly way to do business. And as gas prices reach record levels, doing more with less could be necessary for the bottom line. “The problem, too, is that a lot of it is special use,” added Pisarski. “Cloud technology is starting to change all this.” A SHARED SOLUTION

While the pandemic accelerated this move, the industry was already headed in this direction and sustainability is becoming more than just the next buzzword. “We’re doing more with remote production and virtualization, and that has been crucial in reducing emissions,” said Chris Braehler, vice president of product development at SDVI, supplier of cloud-based media supply chain technology. As energy costs rise, what could help save the planet will help keep productions on budget. Whether in-house or in a data cen-

WHY THIS MATTERS More energy efficient products and use of shared resources can help increase sustainability. That will save money and help save the planet in the process.

ter, the racks of servers need to run around the clock, so the benefit of the cloud is that those racks are used by four or five vendors. “The facilities are simply more sustainable, and even as the servers are always running, this is now about sharing the infrastructure,” said Braehler. “It is like a house. It needs to be heated in the winter no matter the number of people living there. Sharing is always going to be better for the environment.” MORE EFFICIENT DEVICES

This move to greener technology began well before the pandemic

and will certainly continue. “There has been a global concern over climate change, and even 10 years ago we looked at how we could reduce power consumption,” explained Rémi Beaudouin, chief strategy officer at video compression provider ATEME. In addition to maximizing the compression of video, ATEME has been leading the way in also reducing the energy that is being used in the process. “Several years ago, the industry was focused on speed, but now we’re taking a look at the power consumption of the devices,” said Beaudouin. “We believe in innovation, and we want to make sure our technology has a limited impact on the environment.”

While efforts will likely increase, the industry will probably face limits on how efficient the technology can be made. Moore’s Law posited a doubling every two years in the number of components per integrated circuit — but the same principle has held true with other advancements including memory capacity, improvements in sensors and even the number and size of pixels in digital cameras. Yet, there could be a limit to how efficient any device could be made. “Energy consumption and heat reduction remain at the forefront,” said Braehler. “But where any of our production devices and tools reach the point of maximum efficiency, then it will come back to the sharing issue.”

Altadena, Calif.-based Nila Inc. is one of those companies that has strived to be a pioneer in sustainable technology. It was among the first LED lighting product manufacturers to produce LED luminaires with color rendering and brightness levels to replace tungsten, HMI and metal halide fixtures. “When Nila first began selling LED fixtures to broadcasters, our biggest customers were from island countries that couldn’t power conventional light fixtures in their studios,” said Tom Kirby, marketing manager at Nila Inc. Now, most broadcast networks and their affiliates have moved to LED. “That shift has been partially driven by an overall move toward more environmentally friendly business practices, and partially driven by shooters who quickly discovered how much easier it was to get the job done using our LED light kits,” said Kirby. “When you only have one chance to get the shot, you’d rather not deal with lamp breakage, long warm up times and the huge power demands of HMI.” The added benefit is the sustainability of the product. This includes how it is manufactured, how long it lasts and what even happens after its end of life. “A light isn’t automatically sustainable just because it uses LEDs as a light source,” Kirby said. “The materials used in the manufacture of the light are equally important. An LED fixture that’s constructed with a plastic housing may be energy efficient, but it isn’t truly sustainable in the long term.” Sustainability shouldn’t be a new trend, because anything that results in a longer lasting and more efficient product or reduces the production budget while reducing the carbon footprint should be seen as a step in the right direction. “It is good that the industry is moving forward,” added Braehler. “If we don’t do something, at some point we will regret it. We can’t just say we are saying we are green. We need to act now.” l

ADVANCED CINEMATOGRAPHY

Gary Adcock discusses the opportunities and challenges of virtual production.

Saving Time, Money Makes Virtual Production Inevitable Industry primed to take advantage of rapid technical advances By Tom Butts TV TECH

A lot has changed in the 20 years since the first movies to use virtual production were shot on Thomson Grass Valley Viper cameras. Virtual was uncharted territory and digital cinematography was still in its infancy. Today, virtual production has come of age and, according to Gary Adcock, director/producer/ visual artist, the industry is now able to take advantage of the savings, flexibility and visual

49-64_NAB22_DAY3.indd 52

advances the technology presents. Adcock discussed the opportunities and challenges of virtual production during the Monday morning session titied, “Virtual Production, Mixed Reality and Extended Reality (XR) the Future is Now.” All of the elements that go into virtual production are advancing rapidly, from displays to lenses, cameras and graphics. Even with multimillion-dollar budgets, though, a lot of advance work is still required. And just because you’re producing

content virtually doesn’t mean you can do without traditional production-set roles. “You need a virtual gaffer as much as you need a traditional gaffer,” Adcock said. The main driver for making virtual production effective is metadata, something production crews don’t necessarily want to think about. “Metadata is one of those catchphrases that everybody hates,” Adcock said. “I’m not interested in metadata, it just should be there.” But no matter how much meta-

data you have, it’s still not enough, Adcock added. For instance, Adcock pointed out how much metadata an iPhone can gather on a continuous basis — but virtual production hasn’t caught up to the level Apple has attained. “Until we get to the level where we’re getting as much data as we can get on set as we get on our phones, we’ve not done enough,” he said. The impact on budgets should also be taken into account, Adcock said, especially with the amount of advanced planning involved. “Remember that because you’re doing all that work up front, your budget has shifted from later in the project to earlier, so you have to learn how to build your ability to timeline sooner to be able to handle what’s going on in production,” he said. And don’t forget how much can be saved on insurance when doing away with on-location production. Adcock cited an example of a recent shoot on an airport runway. “Do you have any idea what the insurance costs are to take your crew onto an airport tarmac? Hundreds of thousands of dollars per day,” he said. “But now you don’t have to worry about getting all your talent, food, gear and security or worrying about the talent wandering off on the tarmac. So virtual production gives you capabilities in places where you didn’t think it would.” The time it takes to shoot complex scenes can also be cut dramatically. Adcock cited another example of a recent documentary where, with the use of a single panel of LEDs, the production crew was able to reduce vmultipage turnarounds that would take days to produce to just a six-hour period. “That kind of turnaround is almost unheard of,” he said. “But you can do those kinds of things in a virtual production, if you’re prepared.” l

Entertainment Brands Need to Keep Up With New Platforms G4TV, Smosh, PBS face challenge of finding new viewers while satisfying core audiences By Jon Lafayette BROADCASTING+CABLE

Managing the brand of an entertainment channel or service has gotten more complicated as well-known names age in trying to attract new, younger viewers on even newer platforms. On a panel about “Building a Great Entertainment Brand,” a group of executives representing diverse content creators addressed the topic of keeping brands relevant while staying true to their core values. G4TV, a network for video gamers, is making a comeback after being off cable since 2012. “G4 was the original brand that legitimized what it meant to be a gamer and someone who is into fandom, meaning you didn’t just have to hide in your parents’ basement and quietly talk about Dungeons & Dragons,” G4 President Russell Arons said. “We celebrated it.” Now, the gamer audience is ubiquitous, Arons said. “The big reinvention is G4 representing the diversity of the audience both in our creators and in our distribution model. We are on Twitch. We are on YouTube. We are on linear cable. We are on FAST [free, ad-supported TV] channels. That’s why we have a very broad distribution — 150 million households — because that’s what you have to do to be an entertainment brand in today’s world.” Similarly, Smosh was one of the earliest comedy channels on YouTube starting in 2005. “Now, as we continue to evolve you have to think about all the distribution platforms that are

49-64_NAB22_DAY3.indd 54

available,” Smosh CEO Daniel Tibbets said. “How are we creating content for each one of those platforms? Who’s the right talent? What’s the right voice? What’s the right perspective? And so that’s really where the brand is today.” Tibbets said he runs into people in their late 30s who grew up with Smosh. “We’re at that point where we don’t want to be your father’s Smosh. We want to be relevant to the next generation,” he said. “We look at it as the audience we have, the audience we used to have, how do you bring them back, and then the audience we want.” Similarly, Arons noted, there are many viewers who remember previous iterations of G4. “I think it’s a blessing and a curse because you do have a

brand foundation, not starting from scratch, but you also have to really be relevant to today’s generations,” Arons said. “We know every generation wants their experience. And so sometimes that can be tricky.” She warns that if you don’t treat that core audience right, “they’ll turn on you.” PBS has a more mature brand and people are passionate about it, said Ira Rubenstein, chief digital and marketing officer at PBS. “Everyone in this room probably grew up on ‘Mr. Rogers’ or ‘Sesame Street,’” Rubenstein said. “And then you kind of evolved and we really never have gone away.” PBS polls as one of the most trusted media brands and that’s something that has to be maintained

as PBS content goes onto new platforms to reach new viewers, he said. PBS Digital Studios, which puts content on YouTube, has more than 30 million subscribers. Production values might be a little lower to fit in with other platforms, but the content has to meet what people expect from a PBS show. “That means we’re here to educate and inform. We’re here to bring the light and not the heat, and so that people can make their own decisions, and people can get real facts and then also learn something,” Rubenstein said. “And then, if we can make it on these different platforms in these different formats, we can reach those different audiences and introduce them to this bigger brand PBS.” l

Telestream Wheels, Deals Through Pandemic The pandemic was a busy time for Telestream, company executives said at its Monday press conference. “Through COVID-19 we’ve done five acquisitions,” President and Chief Operating Officer John Wilson said. “We’ve expanded the product portfolio to across what we’ve really done well from a media workflow-automation perspective, and then test and measurement.” First, Telestream merged with Tek Video. Then it acquired diva, Masstech, ContentAgent and Sherpa Digital Media. The company announced a new multiyear, enterprise-wide agreement with Sinclair Broadcast Group that covers all existing products and services across the station group’s properties, together with unlimited usage of Telestream Cloud Services.

Sinclair Senior Director of Media Management Mike Palmer outlined some of the benefits his company has found in working with Telestream. “During COVID-19, one of the large projects we had was centralizing our ingest and prep of syndicated content, commercials and promos for all of our 600-plus channels,” he said. “So that means that when a commercial comes in, it’s going to be centrally available to all the channels without need to duplicate.” A piece of material could potentially be received by 60 sites, and people would then check the timing of that content, check the quality, and then a copy of the file was made and moved into play. The workload of processing each file is not evenly spread across a week, with the bulk of the files received on Wednesday,

Thursday and Friday. Sinclair needed a way to dynamically scale. “We wanted to centralize that process, which would mean a huge amount of cost savings to us,” Palmer said. “Our traffic teams were a little worried. They said:

‘OK, everybody is going to be ingesting this stuff in the cloud. How long is it going to take to move through? How long are we going to have to wait?’ So we actually measure our latency for a commercial coming in before we begin to process it. It’s less than 10 seconds during the entire week.” Another major announcement from Telestream is its release of the latest version of Inspect 2110, the company’s award-winning internet-protocol video monitoring solution for ST 2110 media networks. The upgrade ensures reliability within hybrid SDI-over-IP and ST 2110 deployments by using a “monitoring by exception” approach to proactively notify engineers of any quality issues within facilities and across networks. l — Craig Johnston, TV Tech

Capturing Performances in Multi-Camera Productions Live-event producers share cinematic techniques, philosophies By Kent Gibbons BROADCASTING+CABLE

Filmmakers who are bringing cinematic techniques to capturing live performances — from

Broadway shows to Super Bowl halftime shows to Netflix standup specials —- shared some of their experiences at an NAB Show Cine Consortium session Monday at the Create Inspiration Zone.

Producer Aaron Cooke said he doesn’t try to persuade legacy TV shows to try cinematic approaches. “But we are seeing directors that are now requesting that, and executive producers,” he said. “I just

think people are more savvy and they were told for so many years you can’t do it; it doesn’t work; it’s not stable; it’s a risk. And we have been proving time and again it’s not a risk and it’s actually very solid and very stable.” Technical producer Brett Dicus said it’s important going in to know the philosophies of the director, the director of photography and others about camera use and workflow. “Every single project is different and it’s very important to understand those expectations early on,” he said. Asked about favorite projects, Cameron Barnett, ACS, cited “just for the challenge of it” a Kevin Hart performance in the round at The O2 in London. “We had Kevin and 24 cameras,” Barnett said, “all shooting a version of raw.” Producer Alec Sash said recent favorites of his were productions of “David Byrne’s American Utopia” on Broadway and an as-yet-unreleased production of “Jersey Boys.” “American Utopia” was shot during two performances on a Saturday a couple of weeks before the pandemic hit. “The energy in the room was insane,” Sash said. l

E. Martin Faubell Gets SBE’s ­Lifetime Achievement Award The Society of Broadcast Engineers has honored E. Martin (Marty) Faubell with the 2022 SBE John H. Battison Award for Lifetime Achievement.

Helping Vets Break Into the Broadcast Biz Veterans-TV looks to steer former service members into production work By Elle Kehres RADIO WORLD

Founded in 2018, Veterans-TV (VETV) is now poised to help U.S. veterans find employment in

broadcast production careers. The nonprofit said it offers training classes to help those who served find a post-military career path that leads to “a calmer, more peaceful way of life.”

To do this, VETV has received $3 million in equipment and infrastructure donations from dozens of broadcast companies. This money has gone towards equipping the renowned 53-foot Denali Gold

mobile production truck to serve as its mobile classroom. Once the control center for some of America’s most popular live awards and performance shows, the truck has now found its permanent home in Grass Valley, Calif. — ready for new students. Ray Baldock, who serves on VETV’s board of directors, said the program will offer a “very personalized, hands-on experience” over the course of six weeks for $1,500 or via scholarship funds. The nonprofit is currently looking for more trainers to add to its experience-rich lineup. “So many people are lost when they come back from service,” Baldock said. “This is a great way to give back.” The outpouring of support from the broadcast industry thus far has been amazing, VETV President Bob Lefcovich said. He now hopes the community will come together again to help fund student scholarships and support the mobile classroom’s operations, he said. The nonprofit looks to raise $80,000 by the time of its first class this summer. “I think NAB Show, the heart of the broadcast community, is the perfect place to showcase VETV and how it leverages the tremendous ‘heart’ of broadcast to support veterans while addressing the industry’s need for skilled workers,” Lefcovich said. l

CONVENTION HISTORY

NAB Celebrates 100 Years of Broadcaster Gatherings A short history of NAB Shows (they haven’t always been in Las Vegas!) By James E. O’Neal TV TECH

Next year’s NAB Show is a very special one, as it marks the National Association of Broadcasters’ 100th scheduled gathering* of broadcasters and content producers for exchanging ideas, learning about new technologies and business models and inspecting the latest in broadcasting equipment. The NAB — established in April 1923 — came into being at a time when radio was just beginning to enter the home in a big way, and first-generation broadcasters recognized the need to ban together to protect their common interests and to chart a path through these very new and uncharted waters. This fledgling NAB celebrated its founding that fall by holding its first-ever industry trade show in New York City. Beginning with that initial one-day October 1923 event, NAB Shows have remained a high point in the broadcasting industry calendar, continuing to grow and gain momentum even during the years of the Great Depression and World War II. And while it may seem as if the event has always been held in Las Vegas (and in April), that’s not the case at all. After the initial NYC show, it went on to Washington, D.C., and then tried out a number of other locations, including Cleveland; St. Louis; Cincinnati; Colorado Springs, Colo.; White Sulfur Springs, W. Va.; San Francisco; Atlantic City, N.J.; and even West Baden, Ind. It’s been held in Los Angeles three times, and in the early 1950s began a regular alternation between

49-64_NAB22_DAY3.indd 60

The first Las Vegas NAB Shows (1970s) were held in the original 1959-vintage convention center, which boasted 90,000 square feet of exhibit space.

Washington, D.C. and Chicago. Dallas, Houston and Atlanta have also hosted the show, which has also meandered all across the calendar, missing only the months of December and January. The NAB Show made its way to Las Vegas for the first time in 1975, setting up shop in the

original “flying saucer”-shaped convention center and attracting 5,212 broadcasters. While the show has moved around a few times after that initial “tryout,” it’s made Las Vegas its home for more than two decades. * Although NAB Shows have been scheduled every year from

1923 onward, three have been canceled. The first was in 1945 when the government banned gatherings of more than 50 people to free up accommodations and transportation for the military and defense industry personnel. The global pandemic forced cancellation of shows scheduled in 2020 and 2021. l
