THE OFFICIAL NEWSPAPER OF IBC

IBC takes industry pulse By Chris Forrester

Broadcasting is ever-changing; it is one of the delights of the business but also the over-riding challenge. Staying abreast – and ahead – of change is what the IBC Conference is all about. IBC2015 is no exception, with Daily expert panels and compelling Keynotes designed to inform delegates, and to prepare for the years ahead. This year five key themes will be evident, in short: The Pulse of the Industry, Reinventing Broadcasting, the Digital Disruptors, The Future, and It’s a Wrap which summarises IBC’s findings. Thursday’s opener (Forum 09:00-10:30) reflects IBC’s aim, with a Ray Snoddymoderated panel (‘The Future is Now: Broadcasting in an age of challenge’) and four acknowledged experts to take the pulse of the media business. Fran Unsworth (director, BBC World Service Group) will outline how the BBC is embracing technology to cope with squeezed budgets and tough competition from well-funded rivals. OSN’s CEO David Butorac runs some 150 pay-TV channels in perhaps the most competitive broadcasting environment on the planet. Philip Luff runs Scripps Networks International in the

UK/EMEA and will address how expansion is high on Scripps’ agenda. Thomas Riedl, head of Global Android TV Partnerships at Google is superbly qualified to take the industry’s pulse. Thursday afternoon (Forum 17:15-18:15) also sees IBC’s top-flight Leaders’ Summit take centre stage. Moderated by Andrew Neil, the panel will address how well TV is tackling the internet era. These IBC opening debates are typical of those that follow, in that IBC’s Themes are examined in detail. On Friday morning (Forum 10:00-11:00) it looks at Global Ambitions when JB Perrette of Discovery Networks International explains the broadcaster’s philosophy – and how it is evolving. Saturday’s Forum Keynote (10:00-11:00) is another indicator

– and one of IBC’s 2015 Themes – of Disruption in the business, in the form of ‘OTT Comes of Age’. It is headlined by Charlie Ergen-backed Dish TV and Sling TV on pioneering a ‘nextgeneration’ TV service with Sling TV CEO Roger Lynch keynoting. Up for discussion is the huge shift in some consumers from conventional linear TV to OTTsupplied viewing and which has placed Netflix as the US’ third broadcaster when measured in hours viewed. Saturday (Forum 13:3015:00) sees Gerry O’Sullivan (former interim CEO of Digicel Group) host a compelling session, produced by journalist Kate Bulkley, where some heavyweight CTOs take a look at the next 12 months for the industry.

Sunday’s Forum (10:00-11:00) has its hottest of hot topics in the form of BT TV and BT Sport’s managing director, Delia Bushell and how BT has wholly shaken up the UK broadcasting model, winning subscribers from Sky and new channels to rival Sky. No doubt the vexed topic of Ultra HD will also be mentioned!

IBC Conference 2015: Media in an age of disruption Michael Lumley chairs the IBC2015 conference committee. Here he introduces the programme, and points to some of the highlights already confirmed We have given this year’s IBC conference the overall title of ‘The Future of Media in an Age of Disruption’, setting up very nicely the issues we have to address. In media, and especially in broadcasting, wherever we look we are facing disruption. The multi-channel, multi-platform, multi-device world is here. The transition from traditional broadcast hardware and connectivity to IT products, IP streaming and files is part of everyone’s roadmap. What comes after HD? 4K? High frame rates? Extended colour gamut? Super Hi-Vision? What about the new players coming into broadcasting, Google’s YouTube to Twitter to Vice Media – all of which will be present at the conference. Our conference committee brings together senior people from all sides of the industry, each of whom bring their own vision of the future. It can cause some lively debates in the committee but the result is a better conference! The consultant editor for the conference is journalist and commentator Kate Bulkley, who has been a great resource in setting the direction, and I am extremely grateful for her energy and support. The conference runs for a full five days, starting on Thursday 10 September, the day before the exhibition opens. That is very deliberate. We want our conference delegates to be stimulated by the issues raised and the questions asked in our sessions. And we want them to have time to go out onto the exhibition floor and start seeking answers from the vendors in the industry. Thursday is our annual health check of the media business. But this is no navel-gazing day. Delegates will be challenged at every turn. The opening session brings

together CEOs from OSN in the Middle East, BBC Worldwide and Scripps Interactive in the USA. We conclude the day with a big picture session on how the internet era is impacting television, and how the industry is coping. Friday’s theme is the core of the whole conference: Reinventing Broadcasting. We are pleased to have JB Perrette who is leading the push by Discovery Communications International to be one of the industry’s most progressive content providers. On Saturday we look at the new digital-first players. What are the implications of Netflix and Amazon, Google and Facebook? We start the day with the CEO of Sling TV, Roger Lynch. Sling is part of one of the USA’s biggest pay-TV players, DISH, and Sling is a pay-lite, over-the-top pioneer. On Sunday we prepare for the future today. BT has just announced the first 4K channel in Europe, and we have a keynote from the MD of BT Sport and BT TV, Delia Bushell, on how the broadcast model is changing, and how evolving communications technology will drive that change. Monday sees the conference draw all its themes together. By long tradition, it is also the day we give the Auditorium over to debates and demonstrations on the future of cinema. The conference is divided vertically, too. This year we are presenting six streams: Business Operations, Content Innovation, What Caught My Eye, Strategic Insights, Advances in Technology, New Disruptors plus we also have the IBC Big Screen Experience. Whatever your role – creative, commercial or engineering – there are sessions tailored to you, where you can share knowledge and experience.

Augmented reality and wearables The broadcast business is full of challenges today, not least because of new consumer demands. That is why we are looking at more intuitive user interfaces and on-screen guides. Why are companies like Viacom and Liberty Global broadening their business models by adding free television from pay only, and getting into the production of content rather than just the delivery? Content is king, and the creative community continues to innovate in the look and feel of what we produce. Presentations and demonstrations are joined by a daily session that looks at exciting new innovations such as augmented reality and wearables. These sessions are linked to the IBC Future Zone, the part of the exhibition where researchers get to show prototypes of what might go on to become the hit product of

IBC in years to come. The technical papers remain a central part of the IBC Conference. Long recognised as the most respected platform to discuss the latest in research and development, competition to get into this peer-reviewed section of the programme remains fierce. Once more we are inviting new entrants to the industry to take part in the IBC Rising Stars programme. This includes tailored and exclusive conference sessions looking at the specific issues facing young professionals keen to make a mark in the industry. Perhaps most important, it is a great networking opportunity, not just with fellow newcomers but with many of the established industry leaders. IBC Big Screen Experience

Last, but definitely not least, we will once again be converting the Auditorium in the RAI to

the IBC Big Screen Experience with the absolute state of the art in cinema technology. It plays host to conference sessions, including free sessions on high dynamic range production, and special presentations by motion picture industry leaders. We even manage to fit in a couple of movie screenings – look out for details of this year’s films coming soon. This is just a tiny fraction of what we have lined up for this year’s conference. Some is not even finalised yet: we are still monitoring the moves in the industry and adapting our plans accordingly. You can see the conference programme as it develops, and find out about all our speakers, at www.ibc.org/conference. Registration is now open, so you can choose the right pass and make plans for which conference sessions are mustattends for you. I look forward to seeing you in Amsterdam.

IBC2015 is flying high Exhibition committee chairman John Holton looks at some of this year’s plans and considers even more expansion in the future The fascinating thing about our industry – and what keeps me associated with IBC – is that it is constantly changing. Every time we think we have reached the peak, something new comes along and the industry grows again. This time last year I was proud of the fact that we had reached the magic 50,000, both in square metres of exhibition space and in visitor numbers. Well, this year the numbers are even bigger. IBC really is where the leading brands, the finest minds and the wisest investors come each year. It is the premier annual event for professionals in electronic media and entertainment worldwide. As such, the job of my committee is to deliver an exhibition which shows the capability of our industry. This year it means we are even bigger. Our partners at the RAI have fulfilled their side of the bargain, adding a new building on the north-east corner of the site. It’s called the Amtrium. It includes a new two-storey restaurant called The Roast, which I am looking forward to trying. Perhaps even more important, it includes a large space which we can convert into tailored accommodation for a major exhibitor. So just as Sony has made its home in the Elicium building, this year the open space in the Amtrium will be given over to Imagine Communications.

I have mentioned two of our exhibitors: and I would like to mention the other 1,700 or so if I had room. But I know they will all be making www.ibc.org/register their presence felt onsite, showing off new technology and new ideas. One of the most dramatic innovations of the last year or so is the drone.

Free IBC Business Lounge The bustle and noise of the IBC show floor tells you that this is the place where the industry gets together. But sometimes you need to get away from all that, to sit quietly and discuss things in detail. You may need to agree the

the heart of IBC but comfortably away from the show floor. There is lounge seating, and for private meetings there are bookable rooms. The IBC Business Lounge features Wi-Fi and coffee, with staff available to help you. It is

a free facility for all IBC visitors, and it is open during exhibition hours. Go through the doors to the IBC Big Screen Experience and you will find it. To book rooms in advance, follow the Business Lounge link under ‘Visit’ at www.ibc.org.

Forum: The Future is Now By Chris Forrester

Thursday morning in the Forum is always seen as something of a scene-setter for the days that follow, and the opening session (moderated by journalist Ray Snoddy) maintains that tradition. ‘The Future is Now: Broadcasting in an Age of Challenge’ is part of the ‘Taking the Pulse’ theme that runs throughout the day, and promises to be a compelling introduction to the state of the industry. The four panellists are drawn from extremely diverse players: Fran Unsworth (director, BBC World Service Group) is a BBC staffer of some standing having joined the Corporation in 1980 and held some key -- and politically high-risk -- roles in news and current affairs, as well as head of Newsgathering. She is a member of the BBC’s Executive Team. Her current position puts her in the front line of developing new viewers beyond today’s

weekly audience of some 265m. And she has to operate in a tough commercial environment, where the BBC’s reputation helps but is no guarantee of success when there are plenty of other news-based rivals where funding is not a problem. BBC World is up against Al Jazeera, Russia Today and literally dozens of other news channels, whether from America, China, India or another few dozen ‘national’ broadcasters each out to tease viewers away from the BBC. Another panellist, Phillip Luff (MD UK & EMEA for Scripps Networks International), already has a close working relationship with the BBC. Back in 2011 Scripps paid Virgin Media £339m to buy 50% of UKTV, the multichannel bouquet that includes Alibi, Dave, Eden, Watch and

another 900 FTA players (not all of the same high quality). He also has piracy to contend with, as well as deep-pocketed rivals such as BeIN Sport (from Qatar’s Al Jazeera) and newer lower-cost portfolios of channels. Finally, and not least, is Google in the shape of Thomas Riedl (head of Global Android TV Partnerships) who in his own words is “building a great living room platform” with a built-in recommendation engine, instant YouTube videos and Google Cast which slings programming from one device to another. Riedl says that content-owners and distributors are “key stakeholders” for Android TV, and where they will quickly appreciate the innovation that the platform is creating. Android TV has barely been available for a year although the service is becoming increasingly available on games consoles, set-top boxes and smart TVs, with the platform saying it offers

“something for everyone”. With Google’s cash backing his service then might be a complete gamechanger and active disruptor! Hence the importance of this opening panel: Can BBC World Service Group survive the threat of global competition? Can new linear channels make headway in a crowded marketplace? Can pay-TV succeed in the MENA region? Will Google-type OTT services continue to grow, and threaten – and disrupt – the established broadcasting statusquo? These and other questions will be posed by Ray Snoddy in what promises to be a fascinating IBC ‘Taking the Pulse’ session.

Gold. The BBC owns the other half, and supplies much of the programming for the channels. But there’s much more to Scripps’ global ambitions than the BBC. In March 2015 they paid $584m to buy a majority 52.7% stake in Poland’s TVN (from France’s Vivendi) and will use the move to springboard the launch of a cluster of its channels (HGTV, Food Network, Travel Channel, etc) into the Polish market. Luff will explain Scripps’ strategy for developing this portfolio well beyond the UK and Poland. David Butorac heads up Dubaibased pay-TV broadcaster OSN. Butorac has the toughest of tough jobs, in that his competition comes from some high-quality free-to-air (FTA) channels from the likes of MBC and only about

Broadest range yet for IBC Innovation Awards Sunday night, 13 September, sees the presentation of the IBC2015 Innovation Awards. This year the shortlist covers the widest scope ever, from radio stations to remote production; from terrestrial transmitters to online apps; from playout automation for broadcasters to centralised television referee solutions for sport. What makes the IBC Innovation Awards so exciting is that they do so much more than look at new technology. To win one of these highly coveted awards, you have to create teams of collaborators, each bringing state of the art technology, and build a unique solution. Even then, you will only make the shortlist if you can demonstrate that you have achieved real success. A winning project will make the end user more effective creatively, commercially or operationally. And that is one more way in which these awards are unique. It is the end user – the broadcaster, production company or facility – which takes home the award. Although everyone involved, of course, shares in the glory. This year sees 10 shortlisted entries for the three awards. Each will be showcased in the IBC Awards Ceremony on Sunday 13 September at 18:30. First up in the Content Creation category is a major modernisation for the BBC’s local radio stations. ViLoR – Virtualised Local Radio, keeps the content local but uses common, centralised equipment. This broadcast technology as a service project saves the corporation 75% on equipment costs. The BBC developed the solution inhouse, using technology from a large

number of suppliers including Atos, Broadcast Bionics, Cisco, Comrex, EM Computers, EMC², Glensound Electronics, HP, IMI Mobile, Mayah, Microsoft, Oracle, SCISYS, Technica del Arte, Telos Axia, VMWare, Vodafone and Vortex. Also from the UK, Channel 4’s innovations regularly make the broadcaster a finalist in the IBC Innovation Awards. This year it is showcasing a light-hearted talent contest, The Singer Takes It All, which is entirely dependent on a mobile app, from initial auditions to audience votes in the live shows. Channel 4 worked with technology partners Chunk Digital, Electoral Reform Society, Endemol Shine Group and Tectonic Interactive. The third finalist is the National Basketball Association, the NBA. It already runs a central broadcast facility in Secaucus, New Jersey, but now it has added a software-defined replay centre. This gives its television match officials all the replays and reviews they need. With up to 15 simultaneous games and nine cameras at each, this is a busy centre. Cisco, Evertz, Samsung, The Systems Group and Zayo came together to collaborate on the technology.

Contrasts in Content Management Moving on to the Content Management category, where two of the four finalists are among America’s biggest broadcasters. Disney/ABC Television Group has implemented a realtime IP distribution system for content around its New York distribution facility, handling uncompressed HD for more than 200 affiliated stations across the USA. The technology comes from AC Video Solutions, Arista Networks,

Imagine Communications and The Systems Group. ESPN is also looking to the IP future, with the first large-scale, fully ethernet connected production facility in the world. Digital Center 2 is home to five studios, 16 edit suites, six control rooms and some of the most popular sports television in the USA. Its technology partners included Arista Networks, Evertz and VizRT. Much closer to IBC’s home is SBS Broadcasting in Amsterdam who have been looking at ways to improve the viewer experience of its films and drama series. It wanted to maintain dramatic, high contrast audio for its movie channels, consistent with the best loudness practices and in a highly efficient, automated workflow. The result was an anchor-based loudness normalisation workflow, using technology from Delta Sigma Consultancy, Minnetonka Audio and NUGEN Audio. The fourth finalist is dock10, one of the most efficient production and post production powerhouses in the UK. It has always encouraged collaborative and remote working, and it joins our shortlist with the implementation of Field Dock, allowing creative teams to connect into its post network from locations or anywhere else they choose. The technical team from dock10 worked with Avid and Limecraft.

Delivery: Switch On and Switch Off The third category is for most innovative use of technology in content delivery. The first finalist is honoured for moving towards analogue switch-off – but this time of radio, not television. Norkring, the transmitter company in Norway, has now reached 99.5% of the population with DAB+, ready to replace the FM network. Broadcasters Digitalradio Norge, NRK, P4 Radio Hele Norge and SBS Discovery will benefit from the

work of 2WCom, Aldena, Cisco, GatesAir, Kathrein-Werke, NEC, NetCom, Net Insight, Relacom, Site Service, SmartGrid, Spinner, Telenor Satellite Broadcasting and Telmec Broadcasting. Pac-12 Networks covers an incredible 850 live sports events a year, from its 12 university members in the western USA. Every one is now a remote production, with cameras, microphones and pundits on site and directors, editors and producers back at base in San Francisco. IP connections across distances as far as 2,500km are accomplished with less than a frame delay, thanks to technology from Internet2, Nevion and T-VIPS. The last finalist covers even greater distances. Sundance Channel Global broadcasts into Latin America, with tailored content for each country and a separate, Portuguese language feed for Brazil. A cloud content replacement system allows a seamless workflow between the channel’s headquarters in New York, playout partner Telefonica in Spain and local satellite distributor Sky Brazil, and uses technology from Amagi Media Labs. All 10 projects will be on hand on Sunday night, but to find out who wins you will have to be there. The decisions of the judging panel of international editors and consultants will be revealed at the IBC Awards Ceremony, at 18:30 on Sunday night in the Auditorium. The show – which will feature some stunning new content, surprise guests and terrific entertainment – is free to all IBC visitors.

Given the age of many of these assets, not to mention the obsolete video formats, conserving them has become a priority. The IOC has recently completed a seven year project, the Patrimonial Assets Management programme, and IBC is to mark its achievement with an award.

Michael Lumley, chair of the IBC Awards panel, said “This project is very important for two reasons. First, it ensures that more than a century of Olympic history is preserved for the future. But perhaps even more important it draws the industry’s focus on a subject which it is all too easy to ignore. “Archives are at risk of becoming inaccessible, not just because of deterioration of assets but also because the hardware to play them is obsolete and virtually impossible to replicate,� Lumley stated. “Broadcasters, production companies and anyone with an audiovisual archive can look to the IOC’s Patrimonial Assets

Management project to see a model of conservation and access.� At the start of the project, IOC’s archivists found that, within just a few years, 50% of the videos would be unplayable, 20% of the faded photographs would be unusable, and there would be no audio players available for much of the collection. On the films, “vinegar syndrome� chemical deterioration was gaining ground, risking complete destruction. “It was down to us to perpetuate the cultural heritage of more than a century of Olympic history that our forebears had handed down to us,� said Christophe de Kepper, the IOC director general. “The IOC patrimony can now withstand the test of time.� The award will be presented as part of the IBC2015 Awards Ceremony, which takes place at 18:30 on Sunday 13 September, in the Auditorium in the RAI Centre. The Awards Ceremony is a free event to which all IBC visitors are welcome. Free registration for IBC2015 is now open at www.ibc.org/register

Programming with global ambition By Chris Forrester

Thirty years ago founder John Hendricks had the bright idea to launch a factual/ documentary channel for US viewers. Today Discovery Communications is present in 220 markets and territories, typically with about 10 channels on air in each. While its core services are firmly rooted in pay-TV, it has matured into free-to-air broadcasting in some markets. In 2012 it bought SBS Nordic. In 2014 it took control of Eurosport. Then in July 2015 came the clincher: it acquired the European TV rights to the Olympic Games for 2018-2024 (the BBC has the UK rights for 2018-2020). Discovery has grown to a $6.26bn revenue operation (with just 7,000 staff), and where International’s revenues now top those of the US

Keynote Session Friday 11 September 10:00-11:00, Forum domestic operation. IBC talked with JB (JeanBriac) Perrette ahead of his Keynote. He has run Discovery’s international operation since early 2014, and is – he says – having the time of his life. “We’re in a period of enormous consumer and technological change in the media business. Discovery as a company is in an equally exciting and important transformation of our business to reflect these changes. We have moved into multi-genre including fiction, kids and now sports and at the time also

moving from pay-TV exclusive to pay-TV plus FTA and now to include OTT shows that the evolution continues.� His IBC keynote is wonderfully timely. He stresses that its Discovery core mission is never forgotten. “What we are doing today is very faithful to the core brand which is to try and be curious and embrace what we don’t know and to try and figure out for all our benefits how we shape the world ahead. That curiosity

IBC Keynotes lead from the front This year’s IBC Conference is presenting another top flight portfolio of star speakers. Elsewhere we write about JB Perrette, president of Discovery Networks International, and how the division has grown its revenues this past year to exceed those of its US operation. Perrette’s Keynote (Forum, Friday 10:0011:00, Programming with a Global Ambition) will explain how this massive expansion will move forward. But he’s not alone. IBC’s hugely topical Thursday afternoon session (Forum, 17:15-18:15, The Impact of the Internet on TV), chaired by UK broadcaster Andrew Neil, splits the speaking responsibility into two. Former ITV, Disney and Endemol senior staffer Tom Toumazis MBE (now head of Partnerships at Yahoo) and Rhys NĂślke, SVP-Strategy at European media giant RTL, will debate the impact of Internet on TV and how the pair see how ‘connected TVs’ will change the broadcasting paradigm. Saturday’s Keynote (Forum, 10:00-11:00) features Roger Lynch, CEO at Sling TV, and how his Charlie Ergen-owned company is also tapping into the Over The Top market for content, and facing the toughest of tough competition for eyeballs from the likes of Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and the other OTT players. The saturated pay-TV market has to find new revenue models to

drives us.� But does spending $1.4bn on the Olympics mean investment in that core programming will suffer? Perrette came back like a rocket! “Absolutely no way. We look at moving into sport in the opposite way. The opportunity now means we can look at the thousands of hours of material available and gathered over the years. To actually be able to put more work into telling these stories beyond the usual two and a half Olympics weeks every four years, but much more into the full broadcast calendar.� Perrette is firmly on a global expansion agenda. He says that

replace the ‘cord cutters’ now impacting the business, and in the process speedily create a ‘next generation’ TV service. Sunday’s Forum session (10:00-11:00, Telcos Tune into Broadcasting) promises to be another packed house, with Delia Bushell (MD, BT TV and BT Sport, but ex-Sky bigwig) and explaining how BT plans on monetising its huge commitment to ever-more expensive TV sports rights, and rival Sky’s efforts. She will – no doubt – comment on BT Sport’s commitment to Ultra-HD, and expanding the portfolio to include (perhaps) an alternate channel. Indeed, in June she announced the signing of the AMC channel, the traditional home of Breaking Bad, Mad Men, The Walking Dead, and will launch with Fear the Walking Dead in September.

in some markets their channels still have only single-digit ratings. “But we are there and can therefore only grow. We have our staff in most of these markets and they are tasked with looking and understanding that market and coming back to us if they see an opportunity. We are just about growing our audience, on TV across all its forms, online, on mobile, on all platforms. “For sport and the brand you are going to see us busy with 4K, and probably 8K and then whatever comes after. We lead in what we do. I certainly see higher quality video images playing their role in the years ahead.�

OPINION

Weighing investment in IP and 4K IP is a gradual transition so, protecting existing workflow and capital equipment is essential says Said Bacho, SVP EMEA, Grass Valley At IBC2014, most conversations were dominated by the latest developments in two technology areas – 4K capture and IP infrastructure. One year later, as we head to IBC2015, much progress has been made and attendees will be anxious to see the newest solutions from leading suppliers. For broadcasters looking to improve the quality of their viewers’ experience, adding 4K content is the obvious next step, which places a priority on getting 4K cameras and other 4K-capable workflow tools out into the field. To meet market demand, several 4K-capable cameras have been introduced recently, but not many operations are ready to migrate fully to 4K. High-end live productions require support for multiple

camera formats, including 4K as well as existing 1.5G or 3G HD formats. That’s not likely to change in the immediate future, so cameras that offer this flexibility will continue to lead the market as businesses determine the best applications for 4K during the shift. As an example, the LDX 86 Universe is an all-new 4K camera from Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, offering multiformat (HD/3G/4K) and multispeed (1X/3X/6X) content acquisition with outstanding image performance, excellent light sensitivity and the ability to use standard HD lenses. Generating this high-quality, visually rich 4K content also requires advanced infrastructure to handle the larger file sizes and more complex management and transmission. In other words,

broadcasters must weigh the investment not only in cameras, but also switchers, replay servers, multiviewers, routers and signal processing, and determine when the time is right to adopt 4K capability. With the increase in realtime and on-demand multiplatform delivery and high-quality live programming, broadcasters are investigating the transition from SDI to IP-based networks and workflows. In simple terms, IP technology for broadcasters is about integrating the two largest open standards in the world, Ethernet and Internet Protocol, into an environment that desperately needs more speed and more capacity. IP is a gradual transition—a migration. So, protecting existing workflow and capital equipment is essential for many because the cost of new

equipment and changes in workflows may be prohibitive. One such entry approach is to harness the power of IP while using SDN (softwaredefined networking) control and COTS (commercial offthe-shelf) switches in a familiar, broadcast-centric environment. By doing this, the routing of IP video and audio will appear the same as routing serial digital interface (SDI) to an operator, providing transparent control. As an example, Grass Valley offers GV Convergent SDN, which targets customers who want to make use of IP alongside SDI or as an entrance

into IP networking for video and audio signals. Overall, technical advances in video production and broadcast are changing the way content is captured and delivered. Broadcasters are exploring innovations that bring higher-quality content, automation, improved efficiency and more versatility to the process. With so many innovative solutions coming on the scene and so much cutting-edge technology still in development, IBC2015 promises to be an exciting event. 1.D11

Bringing IP technology to life at IBC Content Everywhere

By Adrian Pennington Taking the technology off the show floor and putting it into context of real world engineering and production scenarios is the goal of IBC Content Everywhere Technology in Action Theatre, a brand new Feature Area for IBC2015. This is your chance to hear directly from broadcasters, producers and post production houses about how a solution or service has been implemented and whether it solved the problem it was designed to. Such knowledge-building activity is especially vital in the case of emerging technologies, which is exactly where the IBC Technology in Action Theatre is focused. Comprising a programme of 30-minute free to attend sessions, which are refreshed daily, the Theatre is located in Hall 3 and is a core component of IBC Content Everywhere Europe, the section of IBC devoted to IP, cloud, big data and monetising video online. It’s fitting then that the opening panel session on Friday 11 September is an IP Primer, chaired by AMWA, to give you the binary essentials for this fundamental transport

architecture. The transition to Cloud intersects all aspects of production, post and delivery which a series of sessions allows you to tuck into. Icelandic telco Símmin will provide a live demonstration of its Cloud PVR service which also delivers multiscreen content to its customers. ‘Cloudy with a chance of media’ is a technical presentation by Cinegy in concert with one of Europe’s leading broadcasters which highlights the challenges faced with moving to an IP and cloud-based facility. Further individual sessions, hosted by executives from Italy’s RAI will share their experience in orchestrating station wide cloud and IP systems. For another take on Cloud, documentary filmmaker Paul Kittel talks us through his experience creating Channel 4’s Born

Naughty series where large amounts of material were captured and transmitted wirelessly to the internet straight from the camera with metadata, saving valuable time in the edit. The evolution of video formats towards 4K, high frame rate and wider colour depths is a challenge for

the transmission of video signals due to the limited bandwidth of available or cost effective transmission technology. IHSE makes the case for KVM Extenders and will highlight its work with Germany’s Fraunhofer IIS and VISCON in a virtual reality application, which requires both high resolution and high colour depth simultaneously. Don’t forget to visit the Download Wall and collect all the information from Technology in Action exhibitors and sessions. Also at the Technology in Action Theatre: Brainstorm Multimedia showcases the creative possibilities for working in virtual studios, augmented reality and 3D realtime graphics; Ramy Katrib, founder of DigitalFilm Tree, implements LTO Technology in the Cloud with LTFS; and Arqiva takes us under the hood of new connected TV service Freeview Play. In ‘Moving the needle and the entire studio’ BBC Studios & Post Production analyses the demands on systems and workflows to manage vast programme content and deliver to the highest specifications in hugely compressed timescales. Other highlights include Modern Times Group’s explanation of how it managed to relocate playout to a new London facility earlier this year in a complex collaboration with eleven vendors and application of an overarching media asset management system. There are plenty more action-packed sessions at the Theatre so remember to check the full programme at IBC.org for details and build them into your IBC2015 schedule.

UNTIE YOUR TALENT

How can you demonstrate your creativity if your equipment holds you back? The new CW-F25 Wireless HD Video System from IDX frees you from the restrictions of cable and provides the flexibility you need to get the best shots back to base. Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) automatically chooses the best available channel and Beam-forming technology maintains directional signal integrity. This unique combination means that no other wireless system using WiFi channels delivers greater

reliability. And because it releases camera operators from more expensive systems using licensed channels or cables, it’s cost-effective too. You also get return video, talkback, tally and camera control and an Ethernet bridge over the wireless link. To find out more or arrange a demonstration go to www.idx-europe.co.uk/CW-F25

Technical Papers and Posters IBC TV makes headline news

Selected research is presented as a poster and on display in the Zone

IBC has always been seen as the best place to discuss new ideas, and a technical paper programme has been part of IBC since the very first meeting in 1967. From then until now, the rule has always been that the papers presented at IBC are chosen by peer review. Authors submit synopses to the Technical Papers Committee and, if the subject looks promising, they are invited to write the paper. This is carefully read and investigated by fellow experts in the subject, and only if it is seen to offer new knowledge and applications does it make it into the programme. Even with that level of scrutiny, there is not room for every paper in the conference programme. Some authors are invited to present their

research as a poster, which are on display in the IBC Future Zone. At times, those authors will be present to discuss their thoughts and exchange ideas. Delegates to the conference this year get access to all the papers after the event. If you want to read the most important new work from recent years, IBC is now working with IET to publish the papers online. Through the IET Digital Library (digital-library.theiet. org) you can download papers from 2013 and 2014. Almost a hundred papers are available, either individually or as annual collections. To register for your conference pass and gain access to the digital library, visit www.ibc.org/register

IBC TV is the event’s own live, linear web channel, produced on site and packed full of commentary, interviews and opinions. It is distributed live online 24/7, with several news update broadcasts a day as well as plenty of conference session content. Plus it is also viewable on demand 365 days a year. As ever, a team of professional reporters and presenters will be scouring the whole exhibition and conference for the hottest stories, reporting live from IBC TV’s studio and production centre in Hall 12. Every keynote session in the Forum will be streamed live. Industry experts will analyse and debate what they have just heard, in conversation with the channel’s presenter Rob Curling. Regular IBC visitors who are accustomed to waking up with IBC TV will be pleased to know

that content will be broadcast 24/7 during the show so you can watch it whatever time you rise in the morning. All IBC hotels this year feature free Wi-Fi so you can pick the show up on your laptop or tablet. The reports, debates, interviews and stories all go to build a comprehensive archive of on demand content which

will be available to all IBC visitors through IBC’s VOD channel with special exclusive content available through your Touch & Connect portal. IBC TV is a year-round resource for market information.

Conference streams are totally dynamic the current trends an indicator of the future or might the outcome be even more radical? A pair of back-to-back sessions on Friday in the Forum look at ‘Wearable Wearables’ (16:00-16:45) and is followed (16:45-17:45) by a

Temptations for everyone at the conference

IBC2015 has five well-designed Themes for conference delegates, each to showcase that the show is not just a technical event, important though technology has to be for broadcasters. But this year’s IBC conference is not just content rich but contains a dynamic portfolio of panels each filled with networking – and knowledge improving -- opportunities. Whether in ‘Taking the Pulse’ of broadcasting’s health, or ‘Reinventing Broadcasting’, the ‘Digital First’ disrupters, ‘Preparing for the Future’ and the final analysis (‘It’s a Wrap’) the IBC Conference team has created temptations for everyone. Typical is the business stream devoted to ‘Advertising Meets Big Data’ (Thursday, Room E102 13:30-15:00) which examines TV advertising’s future, or Friday’s ‘Breaking the Bundle: The End of TV as we know it?’ (Room E102, 14:00-15:30) and will discuss whether the HBO Now, or Apple’s expected online TV service will prove to be a genuine alternative to ‘traditional’ pay-TV bundles. Over the years IBC has spent more than a few hours discussing Media Asset Management (MAM) and the topic remains valid, except that now it tends to be ‘Media Logistics’ and ‘Supply Chain’ management. The session (Room E102, 11:3013:00) will address the challenges and solutions to achieving interoperable, efficient workflows and business practices. Similarly, the so-called Future Consumer is never far from IBC’s list of topics. A panel on Saturday (E102, 13:30-15:00) returns to the subject and will focus on the ‘Content Everywhere, Always On’ consumer, and ask whether we really know what consumers want? Are

fascinating Strategic Insight into how wearable technology could transform audience engagement (and produced by Akamai’s John Dillon). However, it also seems that consumers are buying into so-

called 4K and Ultra HD despite the lack of content. IBC firmly addresses the dilemma with a series of panels which look at UHD. One Saturday session (Emerald Room, 11:30-13:00) assumes a world where UHD

is the norm and considers the vast practicalities of designing production equipment and practices which will create, process and store these huge images – and with Japanese updates on their 8K planning.

OPINION

Evolution of monitoring ecosystem Video service operators are using data to drive processes across their organisations and reaping great benefits as a result says Mikael Dahlgren, CEO, Agama Technologies We are experiencing a shift in our industry. Video service operators are acting on the insight that the massive amounts of data collected by modern monitoring solutions can be transformed into information that can benefit their whole operation. This information is just too valuable to remain locked up in a purely technical context. It is now being used to support everything, from daily operational processes to strategic decision making. By widely using this information in data-driven processes, operators can make big gains in service quality, efficiency and

customer understanding. To enable this expanded use, it is necessary to move from narrowly focused monitoring systems to widely usable support solutions. These support solutions need to be able to analyse and adapt information to a level and format suitable for consumption by several user groups. Head-end engineers; first-line customer care agents; and managers planning new service offerings all have different needs. Even if it is fundamentally derived from the same basic data, each requires varying information presented in multiple formats to create different insights.

Apart from supporting several user groups and processes, these solutions also need other technical characteristics. Scalability is necessary, not only in the number of monitoring locations and in the amount of data collected, but also in terms of the number of supported users in the system. It is also important that the solutions can be integrated with the ecosystem of the OSS and BSS solutions that the operator utilises; that the solution can work with data from existing third party systems; and, that it can export refined information for continued use in external solutions.

At Agama Technologies we embrace this shift. For several years we have been promoting a holistic and customercentric approach and strived to empower various parts of the operators’ operations by supplying relevant information and driving awareness and insights. We will continue to drive this development with a clear focus on customer centricity and supporting datadriven processes. We are convinced that great value can be realised by operators with this approach. It should enable them to reduce OPEX, improve customer satisfaction and, consequently,

reduce churn. As the next step in this development we at Agama are launching the next generation of our solution for monitoring, assurance and analytics of video service quality and customer experience in time for IBC2015. This new generation of the solution is a major step towards a true support solution and it enables new possibilities for utilising our solution across operator processes.

Next generation cinema technology

Immersive Picture and Audio explored on the IBC Big Screen

IBC’s ‘Big Screen’ strand will examine in detail current and future advances in cinema technology. Marking its second year as a free conference strand to all IBC attendees, the ‘Big Screen’ sessions will devote a full day to the issue of HDR (high dynamic range), as well as looking at new forms of immersive cinema (picture and sound), a look into the future of the cinema business in the year 2020, plus the EDCF global briefing. This year’s keynotes will give the unique opportunity to hear first hand from the filmmakers of the first two movies to be released in a cinema HDR format. Filmmakers from The Walt Disney Studios’ Tomorrowland and Disney Pixar’s Inside Out will be presenting their experiences in the creation and distribution of the two movies. In a major three part session [11 & 12 September - HDR: from zero to infinity] delegates will understand the science

behind HDR, how it broadens the cinematographer’s palette and what aspects of post production and distribution it impacts en route to big and small screen. Chaired by Entertainment Technology consultant Robert Kisor, speakers will include Brian Bonnick, chief technology officer and executive vice president, IMAX Corporation; Stijn Henderickx, vice president Cinema, Barco; RealD senior VP Peter Lude; EDCF CEO David Monk; and David Schnuelle, senior director, Image Technology, Dolby Laboratories among others. HDR is one of a number of initiatives designed to enhance our visual perception of moving pictures. Others include multi-projection environment Barco Escape, specialist high frame rate MAGI Pods, and laser-RGB projection. A key question for delegates attending Immersive cinema: Picture [14 September] is how they also alter the possibilities for cinematic storytelling.

The industry, though, is wary of adding yet further complexity to the Digital Cinema Package (DCP) with which many existing digital cinema installations are struggling to keep up. Companion session Immersive cinema: Sound [14 September] examines the looming standards war between competing object-based 3D audio solutions Dolby Atmos and Barco Auromax against the merits of new entrant DTSX. With all major stakeholders represented this session has the definitive update. All of these remarkable changes are coming to a head because digital cinema is approaching market saturation. Cinema 2020: Seeing the future business today [September 14] looks at how file-based distribution is galvanising new business models such as streaming e-sports live to venues. Hosted by authoritative practitioners including executives from EDCF, IMAX, Cinecert and Coca-Cola and taking place in the RAI’s auditorium to take maximum advantage of its Christie 6P 2D and 3D laser projection and Dolby Atmos audio, the IBC Big Screen Experience will reveal how your local multiplex is being reinvented before your very eyes. Did we mention the movie screenings? Keep your eyes peeled and check the programme as we line up exciting films.

meet old friends at the party, the layout includes quieter areas for conversation and networking. But you will also find loud and lively music for dancing and look out for the strolling entertainers. Gold and Silver Pass delegates receive invitations to the party, as

do Friday’s Bronze Pass holders. Each exhibiting company has a number of tickets, based on the size of their stand, so hard-working staff can celebrate the successful end of the first day. Everyone else can get a ticket for a nominal fee from IBC Info Points.

Drive the driverless car After the home, the next bastion of connected lifestyle is the car. There is already a battle between the operating systems of internet giants like Microsoft, Google and Samsung and the navigation and diagnostic systems of automotive manufacturer’s to own the data we are likely to churn on four wheels. This information will come into its own as the driver takes a back seat and lets the vehicle do all of the work. At IBC2015 visitors will get a special chance to experience the driverless car. Tata Elxsi will offer visitors the chance to sit in the rear seat of the vehicle, and experience a short drive within the premises of IBC. Two Tata Elxsi engineers will be along for the ride to ensure everyone’s safety and you can see how the car’s pedestrian detection system functions. Along with this drive, you will also be able to use a tablet as an infotainment device in the car, secure connection of your

personal device via the car and witness a demonstration of live TV using the tablet as well as additional tablets in the rear seat. According to Tata Elxsi, this feature will “eventually be of a very high value for passengers and also a new opportunity for the broadcast/media industry.” All this will be demoed on a low cost car to demonstrate the effectiveness of these technologies for multiple price points in the automotive industry. In previous driverless car tests passengers have reported feeling a sense of awe and disbelief, even a spooky feeling. Though passengers might have experienced fairly advanced infotainment systems in aircraft, the experience of a “moving living room” is unique. The vehicle is much smaller, movement is much more perceptible, and the absence of a driver adds to the illusion of being in a home-like environment. What will you make of it?

IBC discoveries are showcased With over 1,700 exhibitors showcasing thousands of solutions and services it can be tricky trying to place them within the bigger industry picture amid the buzz of the show. Don’t worry, help is at hand! What Caught My Eye is an evergreen of the IBC Conference and a favourite among attendees. Free to attend and always packed, these three sessions in the Industry Insights Conference stream take a unique perspective on macro industry trends filtered through innovation debuting at IBC. What Caught My Eye on Saturday offers a content creator’s view of the IBC Exhibition. ‘New Technology, New Content’ is an audiencefocused session, taking an expert view on changing audience tastes and how technology can help content creators. Presenter Alan Griffiths, CEO of World Media Rights, will give his view on which new technology is

the one to seek out in the exhibition halls. The focus of ‘Everything Capture’ on Sunday morning is ways to make production teams more effective, on a tight budget. From cloudbased everything to back pocket low cost gadgets, you’ll get a lightening tour of what’s hot in the exhibition. Our guide is David Dawson, director, ddp Enterprises. From bright idea to production impact, how many of the innovations at this year’s IBC Exhibition will be disruptive? Your guide for Monday’s ‘Blue Sky Thinking’ is Professor Graham Thomas, Principal Technologies BBC R&D, who will search out the breakthrough ideas and try to predict what impact they could have in the next few years. All What Caught My Eye sessions take place in room E102 where your host is Tom Marshall, creative director, Captive North.

Taking the tech temperature For those of us who are fascinated by the strategic direction of media technology, the publication of IBC’s technical conference stream is a significant occasion. It reveals, for the first time, the hot ideas that everyone wants to talk about in 2015 – and, by their absence, those topics which have cooled into obscurity. Our industry thermometer is the 250 bids that we receive every January from technologists and thinkers who seek an opportunity to address our influential delegates. Topping the popularity scale this year are Ultra High Definition television and high dynamic range (HDR), both of which have dedicated conference sessions. In UHDTV our focus will be on worldwide compression and transmission trials of both 4K and 8K systems – find out what the results are telling us. And don’t

miss the cutting-edge paper by NHK on their remarkable operational plans for the start of 8K broadcasting in 2018. HDR is a striking enhancement to television, leading to a vastly more realistic rendition of natural scenes. This year, three of the world’s most well-known content producers from Europe, Japan and the US will explain how HDR figures highly in their own strategic thinking. Second screen behavioural studies have been surprising us for some time, but have you ever enjoyed a video game while watching mainstream TV? One of our second screen session presenters has – and he will reveal some unexpected conclusions from his research. This year sees several new technologies in our session on human interfaces. Human sensing (the ability to detect human posture, emotion, identity and behaviour) will be

explored by exciting newcomer, Pebbles. And Amazon will be telling us how to use social media, recommendations and interactive ads to enhance audience engagement. Now, you would think that we would know all there is to know about on-screen subtitling. Not so. Subtitles are now employed by vastly differing groups of people using a huge range of display types. This prompted the BBC to ask how we would do subtitling if we were starting from scratch. Their creative results, together with Korean developments in virtual human deaf signing and the latest in speech technology, make up a great session on access technologies. As always, our cutting-edge technology session will feature some thought-provoking ideas, such as 360-degree television viewed on a headmounted display; and we shall address such questions as

The keenest thinkers address the hottest topics

how to stream video to it and what production grammar is appropriate. Oh, and don’t miss the ‘wall of moments’ concept, the internet of things or the latest thinking on 4G and 5G.

It’s only been possible to scratch the surface of 2015’s hottest topics. Whether you are a regular or new to IBC’s technical sessions, do join us in September – and be inspired!

Extending the MAM Tedial By Mark Hallinger Tedial Evolution is being showcased at IBC2015. This software extends MAM functionality with advanced search/indexing tools, new services to surf/explore archives, and improved integration between archive and workflow engines to reinforce a collaborative environment, said the company. A new HTML5 user interface

keeps frequently used tools on the screen for improved performance. Multiscreen and multi-platform operations allow users to manage tasks, validate media or monitor workflows status from mobile devices. The product’s search/ indexing engine has been extended to organise and search collections and other object related entities, to indexing very large databases via shared indexes, and to automatically tag descriptive metadata based on scoring of

texts using stop words. Another new set of tools provides a service to manage group entities, a multi-level classification schema based on dynamic, changing relations. Using a real object relational database, entities are logged as assets, which can now be a repository for all shared information. Assets are categorised as members of multiple entities, according to user needs. 8.B41

IBC Content Everywhere is bigger than ever IBC’s Content Everywhere this year really does reach some exciting parts of the entertainment universe. For a start there’s a Friday session (in the IBC Content Everywhere Hub) devoted to Virtual Reality which will complement the demos taking place in the Future Zone, as well as to give a direct tie-in with this year’s ‘Disruptors’ strand in the mainstream conference sessions. IBC industry consultant Ian Volans says that his ‘Apps’ session (looking at online distribution to multiple devices) is a compelling direct precursor to a pair of fascinating ‘Hackathon’ sessions on Saturday and Sunday. This Hub session will look at the opportunities and challenges associated with creating and maintaining an effective – and increasingly essential – app presence in the media and entertainment sector. Each daily programme consists of two hour-long sessions and panel discussions

looking at consumer behaviours, business models and technologies that drive the growth of content engagement over connected devices. The Hub will also showcase a series of short demonstrations exhibiting the latest products and services that are shaping the development of new connected technologies; and looking at their effect on traditional broadcast media. Delegates can also linger at the Download Wall where they can Touch & Connect the session using NFC or QR code readers and keep demonstration presentations, brochures, white papers, data sheets and other useful information. Touch & Connect saves paper, and helps avoid ‘dislocated shoulder’ syndrome from too many brochures! This year also sees an expansion for IBC Content Everywhere into the Technology in Action Theatre (Hall 3.A19) with free sessions covering IP (Friday),

Updated multiservice platform debuts at IBC Newtec By Ian McMurray Making its IBC debut is the Newtec Dialog 1.2, an updated version of the multiservice platform which the company claimed would guarantee optimal modulation and bandwidth allocation, whether it is being used for broadcast, enterprise, mobility or HTS networks. Newtec’s engineers have invented Mx-DMA, a new return link technology which the company claimed combines the best features of MF-TDMA and SCPC technologies to enable services to run more efficiently than ever before over satellite, while still providing the option to have the platform also run in either SCPC or MF-TDMA. Also on show is the Newtec MCX7000 Multi-Carrier Satellite Gateway – a new dense DVBS2X multi-carrier satellite

gateway designed for efficient distribution and contribution broadcast applications. Offering, Newtec believes, significant OPEX and CAPEX savings, thanks to its multicarrier processing capabilities, and equipped with multistream and Newtec’s Clean Channel Technology, the MCX7000 is claimed to increase bandwidth efficiency by up to 51%. It is compatible with Newtec Dialog and features the company’s linear and nonlinear pre-distortion technology Equalink 3, which can insert up to 15% more channels in a DTH carrier. Also at IBC is the MDM6000 R3.1, which incorporates Newtec’s Bandwidth Cancellation (BWC) technology. This allows the transmission of two carriers in an overlay fashion which Newtec claims provides record-breaking spectral efficiencies and throughputs. 1.A49

Many IBC Content Everywhere sessions will be available on IBC VOD

Production/Post Production (Saturday), Delivery (Sunday), Cloud (Monday). The objective is to give attendees the opportunity to see technology in action across all aspects of the industry. Each session is a highly-focused 30-minute case study led by a skilled IBC exhibitor. The Technology in Action

sessions will be popular, not least with many compelling reasons to attend (‘Cloudy, with a chance of media’ is a case in point) and where Cinegy will demystify what the Cloud really means for broadcasters and how users can optimise a range of internet-oriented technologies for safe, effective and beneficial

deployment in a broadcast environment. Another Technology in Action session is devoted to virtual sets. Exhibitors Brainstorm Media will demonstrate how it has served the BBC and dozens of other demanding clients with virtual sets, stunning graphics and highly dynamic presentations.

A Wearable and Virtual Reality

Future Zone technologies bleed into real world production

Always one of the most popular and exciting areas of IBC, the IBC Future Zone outside Hall 8 is essential to everyone’s show itinerary containing intrigue and prototype which may have a baring on tomorrow’s media today. As ever there is a tease of cutting-edge science experiment and daring product that we have managed to sneak out of the labs of universities, broadcasters and research institutes. Among them are exhibits from BBC R&D, Austria’s Joanneum Research, TIE Kinetix and 3D audio specialists Swiss Audec. Since Future Zone technologies bleed into real world production you can follow the story of some

them in the IBC Conference. Markus Gross, director of Walt Disney’s research lab in Zurich, for example, talks of the disruption that surrounds the content creation and distribution industries. There is also a special emphasis on Wearables and Virtual Reality – itself a wearable. Their impact on content storytelling and engagement is explored further in Conference sessions like ‘Wearable Wearables; Disrupting Storytelling; and 360 Content and Virtual Reality: A new creative medium or gamers’ paradise?’ Don’t forget to check the Technical Posters, also presented in the IBC Future Zone, for eye-catching theory which could become tomorrow’s reality.

4K glass-to-glass workflow Canon Europe

Up to the mark: Canon’s wide-ranging new EOS C300 Mark II

By David Fox An end-to-end professional Ultra HD workflow, with 4K lenses, sensors and reference displays, will be on show from Canon for the first time at IBC. These will include the new EOS C300 Mark II, a 4K update for one of the most popular HD cameras, as well as the low-cost XC10 UHD camcorder. Also on show will be the DP-V2410, a lightweight and robust 24-inch 4K reference display.

Data gathering assures quality Watermarks to deter pirates Civolution

Agama Technologies By Ian McMurray

By Will Strauss

The next generation of the Agama solution for monitoring, assurance and analytics of service quality and customer experience is being launched at IBC2015. According to Agama, many processes at a TV operator can be made more efficient and predictable when empowered with data to support better informed decisions. The company has thus developed a new generation of its solution with what it describes as a clear vision to make the valuable information derived available for a much wider use within an operator organisation. By evolving into a support system for wider use in service operations, Agama says its solution will enable operators to work in a data-driven way across departments and

Also on show, version 8 of Edius sports a refreshed GUI, new workflow clip management and accelerated 4K H.264 playback. It is the first NLE to support Canon’s new XF-AVC video format, as used by the C300 Mark II and XC10. As part of the company’s Glass-to-Glass IP system, the GV Convergent SDN makes routing IP video and audio appear the same as routing

SDI, providing transparent control, while the Nvision 8500 Hybrid Routing is designed to enable easy transition from SDI to IP infrastructures. The new iTX Integrated Playout Platform version 2.6 delivers simulcast for greater scalability, is better adapted for live content, and provides enhanced automation of ingest. The modular Kayenne K-Frame switchers deliver full multiformat support, including UHD, and can offer up to 192 inputs, 96 outputs and up to nine M/Es with six full keyers in every M/E. 1.D11

Tempo is being shown for the first time in Europe at IBC2015, described by Telestream as a tool that effectively gives users the potential of being able to lengthen or shorten the running time of a programme by up to 10% without impacting its visual or audio quality. Tempo uses new time compression algorithms and interpolates the desired time change over the duration of the content “in a way that produces no noticeable visual or audible artefacts.” Also, Tempo has the ability to re-time the complete

asset, including video, audio, captions and subtitles. Uses might include creating more ad space and fitting into ad-blocks different from the original format, or adjusting the time of clips for use in the editing process to fit into overall project time requirements. Paul Turner, Telestream’s VP of enterprise product management, said, “Tempo returns a substantial ROI by providing the ability to increase advertising avails throughout the day. “It will be interesting for companies who are working with content from other eras or other regions of the world, where the ad timing is different than their current format.” 7.G30

Cion helps Blue Tuna promote Royalton AJA Video Systems

By Carolyn Giardina Looking for a high-end cinematic aesthetic, but wanting to take a documentary approach, the team at London-based production company Blue Tuna and freelance cinematographer Ben Millar chose AJA’s Cion camera to make a new brand video for luxury property developer Royalton. They used the Cion, recently purchased by Blue Tuna’s Shoot Blue rental house, and an Angénieux 28mm-76mm zoom lens for Cion’s PL mount. “As a DP, I’m constantly looking to achieve the highest

quality image in the most efficient, affordable way possible,” said Millar. “[Cion’s] menu is intuitive, it has great features and you can shoot 4K ProRes 444 at a fraction of the traditional cost. Plus, a lot of other cameras, even in the same price range, don’t come close to matching Cion’s workflow speed with editready ProRes files.” Millar and Blue Tuna spent a week shooting in and around London for the project. At each location, they shot an average of 40-50 minutes of footage, transitioning between 4K ProRes 444 and 4K ProRes 422. Depending upon the environment, Millar also used a combination of setups, from a slider to a tripod. “The subtlety between the different colour tones

)LU4PSSHY!¸;OLZ\I[SL[`IL[^LLU[OLKPɈLYLU[JVSV\Y[VULZ^HZL_JLW[PVUHS¹

was exceptional with Cion, especially in the midtones,” Millar said. “In the Expanded 1 gamma setting with soft lighting, I saw a really big graduation between tones, which was fantastic; our editor was also happy with the nature of the colour depth. “Cion also held up well in a variety of environments; whether sun, rain or cloud, it performed flawlessly.” Miller also praised the speed at which the camera could be assembled and used. “It’s so lightweight that you can move it around easily. We were able to capture high-quality slow push ins and slow pull outs without any interruptions or issues; Cion simply captured beautiful footage.” 7.F11

Communications and Surveillance. The SOLO7-OBTx is a new camera-back transmitter that features 1080p60 and 4:2:2 with integrated camera control. It includes swappable RF modules (340MHz – 8.6GHz) and H.264/ MPEG-4 AVC video encoding.

Depending on mode, latency ranges from 1s to just 10ms, which, when coupled with ultra-low power consumption, is claimed by Cobham to deliver extended performance in the field. Also being launched is the SOLO8 SDR, a dual-input HD-SDI COFDM transmitter with integral video analytics, and IP streaming.

It includes 128GB of internal video storage and an integrated ISM band telemetry modem. The underlying transmitter platform of the SOLO8 – which Cobham calls ‘software-defined radio’ (SDR) – is considered the cornerstone of its next generation of wireless broadcast products. 1.F41

News Stream: LiveU’s LU200 was used in Sky’s coverage of the UK General Election

By Will Strauss The LU200 transmitter, which can turn any camera into a mobile live streaming device, is on display at LiveU’s stand during IBC2015. The small two-modem bonded field unit is being shown alongside the LU500 lightweight backpack transmitter. Both the LU200 and the LU500 were used by Sky News in the UK for coverage of this year’s parliamentary General Election. Sky is not the only broadcaster to use cellular bonding newsgathering technology from LiveU during election coverage in recent times. In 2014 it was used during the Indian and Sri Lankan general elections. It was also deployed to cover the 2015 Greek election. Also on show at IBC will be LiveU Central, the cloudbased management and video distribution system that allows fleets of LiveU units to be centrally controlled using geolocation capabilities. Other IBC highlights for the New Jersey-based company include MultiPoint, a video distribution service for sharing high-quality live video between multiple broadcast facilities over the public Internet. Details of a strategic collaboration with Panasonic on an endto-end system for connecting Panasonic cameras with the LiveU Central management platform will also be showcased, as well as the LU-Smart app for mobiles and tablet computers. 3.B62

‘Thinnest consumer device’ honoured ruwido

By Ian McMurray The independent jury of the Red Dot Design Awards has awarded the label ‘Best of the Best’ to ruwido for its leaf input device. Launched at IBC last year, leaf is described as fusing the essence of design with innovative technology. The anodised remote control has an in-built keypad, and features integrated speech transmission to allow searching for known content in a more natural way. Measuring 2.97mm, it has a silhouette thinner than a coin cell and is currently, the company claims, the world’s thinnest consumer electronic device. The multimodal device is manufactured using high quality aluminium and carbon and offers advantages such as haptic feedback. It features data transmission via infrared and Bluetooth Low Energy. Ferdinand Maier, CEO, ruwido,

said, the company was “truly honoured to have been given such a high mark of excellence”. “In today’s TV landscape, interaction mechanisms must be enhanced and improved to meet the user’s needs in order to make content more easily accessible,” he continued. “Yet it is just as important to create a device that is a joy to own and a

Remote impossibility: The leaf has a silhouette thinner than a coin cell

joy to use, and that users would give pride of place to in their living room. We are passionate about precise technology and manufacturing, and this award shows that combining a straightforward design with innovative functionality focused on pure usability, can touch the emotions of the user.” The device can be seen as the direct result of ruwido’s ‘thinsizing’ approach, the company claimed. Contrary to today’s common business practice of combining as many technologies, protocols and input modalities as possible, ruwido said that thinsizing allows it to carefully remove the unnecessary components from the mass of technological options, and to focus on the essentials of how users want to interact in and with their TV environment. 1.D69

Exterity By David Fox By Anne Morris A new enterprise IPTV portfolio called ‘Beyond the LAN’, that is designed to enable broadcasters, production houses and proAV specialists to stream content to a wide range of devices, is being showcased by Exterity. The company said the products extend the distribution of live and premium TV and video so that end users can view content on any preferred device, wherever they are. At IBC, the company will demonstrate how ‘Beyond the LAN’ products can make any TV and video streams available over an organisation’s LAN, wireless network, wireless area network and the internet. Colin Farquhar, CEO of Exterity, said, “With 24/7 global news impacting businesses

Screen scene: Exterity’s IPTV portfolio extends the reach of premium TV and video

today, more and more organisations are deploying Exterity video over IP systems to distribute live TV throughout their facilities. Our systems can scale to support large numbers of channels and multiple end user devices without compromising system performance, flexibility or network availability.” Addressing what it described as a recurring issue in the industry, Exterity said it would also be showing broadcasters, media operators and content providers how their content

can be fully protected as it is distributed across their corporate network. This includes integration of advanced conditional access systems to limit access to content solely to those with the right to do so. Meanwhile built-in DRM from ArrisSecure Media and other standards-based security technologies aims to ensure that organisations meet the increasingly stringent content protection demands of broadcasters and content owners. 14.H13

Hitachi’s new OB-Box concept is claimed to offer increased operational flexibility for outside broadcasts, cost-efficiency and technical performance up to Ultra HD. The fully featured modular OB facility is delivered to a customer and then mounted onto a vehicle’s chassis using a proprietary fixing kit. According to Hitachi, this reduces manufacturing and delivery time as it avoids having to source and ship an appropriate vehicle. The OB-Box comes in three configurations, supporting four, eight or 12 cameras. The option of a booth side extension adds further flexibility. Two OB-Box units can also be connected to cope with up to 20 cameras. Each OB-Box is specified,

Hitachi’s Istanbul facility to meet a customer’s exact needs, and provides all of the video, audio, transmission and infrastructure capabilities needed for a standalone OB. Besides satellite and fibre connectivity, the units are fully Ethernet networked, providing internet facilities on site. OB-Box also features sophisticated Cloud capabilities, enabling users to send UHD content back to a broadcaster’s production centre quickly and easily. Cemal Yilmaz, general manager, Hitachi Kokusai Turkey, said the OB-Box “is the result of a major development initiative at our Istanbul headquarters and the customer response we have seen so far indicates that this elegant 4K OB facility will provide a flexible option in many countries worldwide.” 11.D39

Wi-Fi built for reliability New Wave: IDX’s CW-F25 Wireless system takes advantage of licence-free Wi-Fi

New look DaVinci Resolve Blackmagic Design By Carolyn Giardina

IDX

By David Fox The new CW-F25 Wireless HD Video System from IDX boasts improved image quality with enhanced reliability. To maintain the resilience of the link, it uses Dynamic Frequency Selection, to automatically choose the best available Wi-Fi channel, plus Beamforming Technology between the transmitter and receiver, to limit interference from other 5GHz users. It also uses Adaptive Variable Bit Rate to prevent sudden disconnection. Together, these are claimed to deliver greater reliability than other Wi-Fibased wireless systems. To allow it to be mixed seamlessly with wired camera

systems, CW-F25 uses 4x4 MIMO channels with ODFM/64QAM modulation, giving a maximum data rate of 300Mbps. This supports H.264 25Mbps 4:2:2 10-bit high profile video with four channels of high quality embedded PCM audio, with a typical latency of six frames/250mS, and a typical transmission distance of 1500m (line of sight). Return video, intercom, tally and RS-422 remote control are supported, while Ethernet I/O at both transmitter and receiver creates a wireless bridge to support an IP camera feed, remote controller or other data link. Both units have one HD-SDI input and two HD-SDI outputs. Either unit requires 7~17v power via a 4-pin XLR input, and consumes about 15 Watts. 11.C25

Bidirectional switching for complex infrastructures Guntermann & Drunck

By Ian McMurray KVM matrix systems make IT infrastructures highly flexible by allowing distributed access to a great number of computers. To expand the limits of this infrastructure even further, Guntermann & Drunck (G&D) has developed the matrix grid to link systems more directly. Not only does it facilitate the operation of large installations, the company claimed, but it allows the bidirectional operation at multiple locations. The matrix grid uses the features of the dynamic ports provided by G&D matrix switches. Each port can be used as input or output and enables

bidirectional communication. The ports are used to connect computers and consoles, but also serve to establish a connection between individual matrix switches, allowing access beyond individual matrices. All digital KVM matrix systems – ControlCenter-Digital and DVICenter, in all sizes between 16 and 288 ports – can be included in the matrix grid. This, claimed G&D, allows for highly complex topologies to be set up in a variety of ways – for example, as a strand, ring, star, or as a fully meshed network. With the new matrix grid, G&D believes that customers are now able to establish much larger installations, which they can use more flexibly – for example, distributed over several locations. 1.B10

Virtual Studio solutions made easy! Datavideo introduces the TVS-1200, two 3G SDI input trackless virtual studio solution. The TVS-1200 uses two single fixed cameras. This allows the director to zoom, pan and tilt the camera virtually within the set. The TVS-1200 will be as intuitive and easy to use as its smaller brother, the TVS-1000. The TVS-1200 delivers professional input specifications (up to 1080p) and professional integration with existing Datavideo equipment. Just like the TVS-1000, the TVS-1200 is very easy to operate. With a new and improved 10 second chromakey setup, this system is up and running in less than a minute. Use Datavideo chromakey products to dress your studio in the best shade of green and use Datavideo lighting kits to bring some light in the darkness.

USD$ 8500,Prices excl. VAT and local import duties

The TVS Series virtual studios have streaming encoders on board. That means that the only thing between your studio and a broadcast on the largest CDNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is a piece of Ethernet cable or a steady WiFi connection. TVS Series equipment supports RTMP streaming and is capable of importing your FMLE settings file. With 4 M/E channels and 2 DSKâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, the options to composite images are endless. TVS Series equipment comes packed with over 30 built-in backgrounds. The software also provides you a very easy tool to composite your personal background with only a few mouse clicks. Datavideo also hosts an online marketplace, where users can buy and sell their own backgrounds.
