Broadcast transformation: “Put the viewer first” Inside By Chris Forrester An IBC panel was unanimous about the impact IP was making – and would continue to make – to broadcasting. But as Richard Lindsay-Davies, CEO, DTG, warned: “Whatever we do, we must put the viewer first.” The DTG is about to publish a Green Paper summarising its recent research and analysis, but he said the report could be distilled down to three core elements: taking the best of our existing system, always protecting younger viewers, and keeping everything affordable. Justin Gupta, Google’s head of broadcast & entertainment, said IP is changing everything, and the viewer benefits. He said that some former niche topics, such as eSports, had been brought to life by YouTube and were now mainstream, thanks to IP.

IP has clear benefits but it brings technological and business challenges

Liz Ross, CEO at Freeview in Australia, warned that their own research showed that viewers don’t like multiple “coloured buttons” and she was anxious about menu-driven options. “Don’t design a system for youngsters. They’ll get it anyway. Design for older viewers, the mass-market and elderly.” She was also concerned about any ‘IP-based broadcast’ system that went to rural and countryside

locations where fibre would never be available. Raymond Lamphen, GM/VP at DMC, echoed that thought and said the technology is not the problem. “Where’s the business model [for some services]? Life is harder over IP, and linear TV is still the most valuable sector in broadcasting.” Lindsay-Davies welcomed the extra viewer choices available, but cautioned that

Hundreds turn out for 4K 4Charity Fun Run

August, 2017, Sam Blackman died peacefully surrounded by his family after suffering a sudden cardiac arrest the previous day. He was 41 years old. “The 4K 4Charity Fun Run Series was near and dear to Sam. He was passionate about creating an activity that provided all a healthy, fun alternative to traditional networking events and a way to give back,” said Laura Barber, 4K 4Charity Fun

Nearly 380 people from 159 companies representing 26 countries braved the wet conditions yesterday morning for this year’s 4K 4Charity Fun Run at IBC2017. Total registrations were up 20 per cent from 2016, helping to generate nearly $38,500, which will be donated to global charitable organisation Heifer

Ahead of the run, there was a moment of reflection in memory of Sam Blackman, who was CEO and co-founder of AWS Elemental and co-founder of the 4K 4Charity Fun Run. On 27

‘transmissions’ had to scale, and technology had to work. “We have a major test suite in London and engineers are sometimes brought to near tears trying to get their technology running. I fear that we may not be on a gentle flight-path, but fast approaching a cliff edge. And where’s the bandwidth? How do we overcome capped data rates? I don’t think we have all the answers.”

From science fiction to science reality By George Jarrett The greatest star turn of this IBC is Hanson Robotics’ Sophia, pushing the frontier of AI and robotic technologies close to human acting roles in movies, and the hosting of chat shows. In preparation for his Tech Talks Keynote today, Dr David Hanson responded first to the use of blushing and lipstick make up: “Right now, the material that we use doesn’t have that ability. We can do sensing, light sensing, and touch sensitivity. You could show light through the skin, but we couldn’t make her flush like human skin, yet.” Founder and CEO of the company, he continued with his goals: “We are applying robotic technology that physically

embodies computer animation,” he said. “We are working towards making an interface for AI to interact in a completely natural way, to the best of our ability.” Full bandwidth and natural interfacing is something that is still under development. “We are trying to do so many things across so many disciplines. The summary here is that we bring robots to life as animated characters, but we are also questing to tap into the mysteries of what is a living organism, and make AI really alive,” Hanson said. “To make robots truly alive is the stuff of science fiction, so what we are trying to do is turn the science fiction medium of character animation into science reality,” he added. This means actual living robots, and they

Voice and AI voted hottest new tech trends OUTLINED

By Ann-Marie Corvin Forget VR – what broadcasters and media companies should be investing in is voice UI and AI technologies. That’s the unanimous verdict of technology heads from Channel 4, IBM, Liberty Global and Ericsson. The media companies all gathered for an expert panel challenged with assessing the hottest new technology trends at IBC, based on how they might offer their businesses the chance to expand reach, grow services and satisfy consumer demand. Channel 4’s CTO Orpheus Warr said that voice search technology had “real momentum” and was “super close to tipping point”. “With voice the opportunities for ways that people can discover

our content is huge. The options are growing and growing – some voice apps are pretty basic, but others are amazing,” he said. Warr added that when voice was integrated with AI, smart devices around the home, recommendation engines and creating smart navigation it would present the UK commercial broadcaster with exciting new ways to bring viewers closer to its content. Steve Plunkett, CTO at Ericsson’s media and broadcast services division, added that with consumer uptake of voice activated services such as the Alexa platform proving “unexpected hits”, he expects there will be widespread adoption of the technology. “I think voice will become the most pervasive ordinary

Making a case for LTO LTO Program By Carolyn Giardina LTO Program, the consortium made up of IBM, HPE and Quantum, has released a report that contends that LTO is more cost-effective than cloud-based storage options. “Cloud storage can appear attractive, but what some users don’t realise is there are a lot of hidden costs if

you want to retrieve your data. Cloud can quickly get expensive,” said Quantum’s Mark O’Malley. IBC delegates can drop by the LTO Program stand to learn more about the report; to see a demo of the LTFS; or hear about the next version of LTO technology, LTO8, which is expected to double the capacity of LTO7 and be available early next year. 6.A21

Accelerating live UHD video processing from edge to cloud Advantech By Heather McLean Advantech has just announced a strategic partnership with Socionext to provide high density and efficient live hardware transcoding solutions for the data centre. By using Socionext Media Cloud technology on new Advantech VEGA 7000 Series servers accelerated by the VEGA-3318 transcoding card, cloud service providers and equipment manufacturers will be able to

deliver up to 32 4Kp60 live HEVC profiles per rack unit. Brian Carr, product strategist and marketing director for video solutions at Advantech, said: “We are taking care of the transition to HEVC. With Apple’s announcements and Window’s announcements on HEVC, HEVC will be everywhere.” The VEGA-3318 accelerator was shortlisted for the IABM Design & Innovation Awards 2017 in the Playout & Delivery Systems category. 11.C32

interactive technology we’ll see,” he added. Adrian Drury, technology strategy and insight director at Liberty Global, confirmed that voice would be central to the cable operator’s next-generation TV platform. “Voice UI is what our customer base wants and we’ve been doing a lot of work around that,” he said. AI, machine learning and automation was the other key

area that panellists agreed would disrupt all aspects of a broadcaster’s business. “It will be important in pulling insights out of video content, for automatic metadata generation, smart search and even for monetisation – finding out what content and ads consumers are most interested in,” he said. While the panel was keeping an eye on AR, they were less upbeat about VR, citing

sluggish consumer uptake, bulky and expensive kit, and the fact that genres such as soaps and sports were shared TV experiences. “I’m not going to have our audiences suddenly watch Corrie on a VR headset,” said Drury. “In the gamer market – yes, but even in sports it’s challenging because putting a headset on makes it more isolationist,” he added.

WCME: Full video production for less than !20,000 By Chris Forrester George MacCallum, a selfshooting “one-man band”, set himself the challenge for the popular ‘What Caught My Eye’ session to re-equip his complete video production kit with the latest equipment for less than €20,000 – and succeeded, he said, with kit that was better, lighter, more robust and versatile. He praised Sony’s A9 camera [Hall 13.A10] saying it could be an “excellent upgrade with a good battery, two SD slots, and just €5,400 for the body.” MacCallum also picked the Canon E0S C200 camera [Hall 12.D60] capable of RAW 4K, with a touchscreen, face-following auto-focus “and very easy menu for self-shooters”. Cost: €6,899. Panasonic’s EVA-1 [Hall 11.C45] was also impressive and from the Varicam design team, extremely lightweight (at just 1.2kg for the body) and potentially very useful for drone use. Cost: €7,250. As far as accessories were concerned, he loved the

MacCallum discovered lighter, versatile kit within his budget

Shoulderpod [Hall 9.LP12] made by a Barcelona-based business with a strong design ethic. It is able to turn a smartphone into a production rig. “This could appeal to broadcasters and news journalists all over the world.” The kit was priced at between €40 and €120, and he bought one! MacCallum also enthused over Force Servo’s Pointer Gimbal [Hall 8, B28] which was “really cool” with space to add other accessories. “It isn’t cheap but has so many applications, even for flying on kites, as well as vehicles.” Cost: €5,000. Waterbird Systems’ Multi-Slider [Hall 11.B12]

also caught his interest because of its adaptability, and allowed configuration into any number of shapes. It is app-driven, allowing for time-lapses and variable speed transitions. Cost: €5,000. Aladdin’s Bi-Flex lighting panel [Hall 12.G80] was also “neat” in terms of size, weight and extreme adaptability. Cost: About €700. MacCallum also included the Røde Video Mic Pro [Hall 8.D56] praising its construction, small size, battery life and price. Cost: About €300. ‘What Caught My Eye’ sessions are held in Room E102 from 08:30-09:15.

News broadcasters: Don’t sign your own death warrant OUTLINED

By Chris Forrester Ignoring the opportunities and flexibility of mobile could mean that broadcasters risk signing their own death warrant. This was the message from IBC’s ‘Live is Dead: Long Live Live’ session, where the panellists were unanimous in urging broadcasters, not just in news, but right across the entertainment spectrum, to embrace mobile technology. “Live can be done now, or differently, better and even with others,” said BBC North’s Tim Sargeant. “We have to break out of the expensive gallery-based facility and do things differently and with the new toolsets that are cheap and with rich features. We need to use this complementary

world, with more self-streaming from journalists and also working with partners from other reputable organisations, tapping into their output.” Glen Mulcahy, RTE head of innovation, was blunt in his message, saying that the smartphone was the true ‘Swiss Army knife’ for broadcasters. “But if you just use it as a phone or to check emails then it’s like owning a Ferrari but only driving in first gear! Mobile journalism is all about off-the-shelf kit. The days of the €80,000 news crew are numbered. Today we can do the same for much less than €5,000. It is the story that is everything.” Mulcahy showed delegates impressive footage, all of

which had been captured on a smartphone, which he said were getting better every day, and are now 4K, HDR and HEVC. Perhaps even more technically challenging was Swisscom Television’s Thomas Rajman, who worked with Red Bull to create six live simultaneous events from cable cars in the Swiss Alps (Gondeli 2017), some with DJs and some with music groups. Using mobile technology and Sony cloud-based remote switching, the transmission was viewed by more than 200,000. Another event at the Locarno Film Festival this August saw live reports and backstage interviews which generated 120 stories and 700 minutes of broadcast. “Our biggest worry was whether the

4K transmissions from the International Space Stations, and a broadcast that started when the ISS was over New Mexico and 11 minutes later was over Africa.

Automated closed caption service trialled TVU Networks By Will Strauss A closed captioning service that uses voice recognition software to automatically

Increasing the value of video IBM Watson Media By Anne Morris The US Open tennis championships proved to be more than a platform for tennis stars to show their prowess this year: it also served as the launchpad for IBM Watson Media – a new suite of artificial intelligence-powered solutions on the IBM Cloud that is also being showcased for the first time at IBC. David Kulczar, offering manager, said the first product, Watson Video Enrichment, will officially go live on 19 September 2017. Using dark video data, Watson is able to create a metadata package that transforms an asset into a searchable and more valuable piece of video, thereby improving content search and discovery. Other products will follow later in the year and will focus on

06 IBC D3 2017 v3 Final.indd 1

David Kulczar, offering manager, IBM Watson Media

aspects such as compliance, closed-captioning and cognitive highlights. Kulczar added that facial recognition technology is also under development and could be made available in the fourth quarter of 2017. The suite of products is designed to be integrated with asset management platforms to help video content providers improve both their internal

efficiency and the customer experience. Kulczar noted that particular interest has been shown in the indexing capabilities to help find a certain piece of content among back-catalogues that could date back decades. Overall, IBM Watson Media will provide five main solutions to help solve some of the current issues faced by large businesses. These are content and discovery as outlined above; recommendations to help understand why users watch a particular piece of content; closed-captioning; highlight clipping; and a compliance solution – initially with a focus on detecting nudity and profanity, for example. The suite of solutions is being offered globally and already supports a large number of languages, with more to follow in the coming months. 14.M16

Making the grade: Canon’s newly-launched DP-V2411 4K 24-inch professional reference display in use on a DIT cart, where its HDR, 4096x2160 resolution, DCI-compliant 2000:1 contrast ratio and BT.2020 colour space should prove useful. 12.D60

VR fi rm targets sports market Texel By Will Strauss Sports broadcasters and sporting federations are the target for an Israeli start-up that is promising to deliver high quality VR content even when available bandwidth is low. Texel’s platform achieves the feat by transferring only selected parts of the VR data based on what users will

actually visualise. It analyses usage and interactions, along with the content, in real time. This allows it to transmit the most pertinent parts, as determined by the user’s expectations and movements. The service is said to be compatible with all VR equipment and platforms. Two European broadcasters have been lined up to trial the platform. 3.B56

said Arri product manager, Curt Schaller. “Such systems are normally very heavy, but can’t carry a big load,” added Milan Krsljanin, Arri’s director of group business development. “If you have a lighter head, everything behind it can be lighter,” such as the crane, said Schaller. All of Arri’s stabilisers are mechanically balanced, “which means its [direct drive] motor can devote 100 per cent of its power to the only job: stabilisation,” he added.

Users can control everything on the device (camera, gimbal and lens) from one controller, via a single wireless (or Ethernet) connection, using the Master Grip-equipped remote control. The SRH-3 will be available in November. Arri has also added a new mechanical Standard Grip to its electronic Master Grip range so that users can benefit from the ergonomic design for both hands without having to purchase two electronic grips. 12.F21

4:1 compression ratio and a latency of a few milliseconds. The Virtuoso solution offers multi-channel bi-directional TICO Ultra HD/4K compression in a compact 1RU media server. “We are seeing growing interest in Ultra HD/4K in live production among our customers,” said Johnny Dolvik, chief product and development officer, Nevion. “A big challenge for broadcasters and service

providers is the bandwidth required to transport Ultra HD/4K video signals. TICO compression enables them to transport pristine quality video using the same bandwidth as currently used for uncompressed 3G high-definition with a minimal effect on latency. Adding TICO to Virtuoso’s existing JPEG 2000 and H.264 compression capabilities made a lot of sense for Nevion.”

IBC’s Big Screen sessions: Watch, and be amazed OUTLINED

By Chris Forrester The RAI Auditorium is arguably the best-equipped cinema on the planet, at least for the four days of the IBC’s Big Screen sessions. It features not only the very latest cinema projection and audio but also expert panellists, aided by supremely competent technicians to showcase footage. The 2017 sessions have been shaped by global industry

professionals and designed to be a critical examination of the future of cinema now that the conversion from film to digital is largely complete. The fourday programme examines and demonstrates the hottest topics, themes, and insights surrounding the art, science, and business of cinema from capture through to exhibition. Sunday’s cinematic treats look at the changes in laser delivery [09:30-10:45], and

ask whether Direct View Displays will have an impact [11:00-12:30, Auditorium]. The European Digital Cinema Forum will then update delegates on technology changes [15:15-18:15 Emerald Room]. IBC’s Big Screen sessions come to a climax on Monday with the Keynote [10:00-11:00, Auditorium] which is followed by three compelling Business Insight sessions [11:15-12:00, 13:00-13:45, 13:45-14:30,

Today in the future Every IBC visitor should take time out to visit the IBC Future Zone, the specially curated demonstration area looking forward to the products of IBC2020. This fascinating area, in the Park Lounge near Hall 8, offers demonstrations at the cutting edge, from 3D audio to virtual teleportation, holographic telepresence to haptic control. At the centre of the zone is the Future Reality Theatre, which is host to a series of presentations and discussions

today. After a welcome and introduction to the theatre, the day starts with a fascinating session on the changing nature of the way we entertain. John Canning, vice president of interactive experiences, NBC Entertainment Digital, will spark the discussions around the way technologies like VR will find new audiences. The requirements for VR remain the focus after lunch, with debates around camera technology, marketing and branding using VR, and the

enterprise marketplace. All these sessions are led by experts and future-thinkers, and are designed to trigger lively debates. These are hot topics, and the programme is sure to pose some key questions. The whole programme in the Future Reality Theatre is free to all IBC visitors, as of course is the entire IBC Future Zone. The Future Zone and all its demonstrations remains open throughout IBC exhibition hours, until Tuesday afternoon.

Horizontal/vertical polarised broadband UHF panel antenna Jampro Antennas By Mark Hallinger The JUHD broadband panel is designed to be used as part of antennas where either horizontally or vertically polarised propagation is required. Dual/individual inputs for horizontal or vertical polarisation allow for varying levels of polarisation split and pattern performance. JUHD & JUVD models are engineered and best used for digital/ analogue TV and mobile video, said the company. Built with corrosionresistant stainless steel aluminium reflecting panels, the panel will

last a long time, according to Jampro. The JUHD & JUVD antenna is based on a

modular design and can be configured to provide various azimuth and elevation patterns. By using optional beam tilt and null fill, the elevation pattern can be shaped to maximise coverage. It can be used with a variety of common analogue and digital transmission standards, in UHF bands IV and V with high power ratings. It can also be used in multiple channel broadband applications, and features flexible panel placement for custom patterns, and an optional mounting spine for top mount Flexible: The panel can be configured to configuration.

The SilverBack 12G transceiver provides cameras with a full-bandwidth fibre optic link

MultiDyne By Ian McMurray Bringing the simplicity of 12Gbps connectivity to the company’s fibre transport systems is MultiDyne, with its new SilverBack 12G camera-mounted transceivers, and FiberSaver 12G optical remapper/multiplexers. The addition of 12G support to MultiDyne’s fibre solutions enables 4K video to be transported over a single connection, simplifying infrastructures, reducing cabling requirements and speeding equipment set-up and strike, said the company. It also provides users with denser signal capacity, greater connection flexibility and stronger compatibility with the growing array of 12G-enabled cameras and production gear. SilverBack-12G provides a full-bandwidth fibre optic link between any camera and a production truck or control room. SilverBack-12G puts all of the signals needed for multi-camera production – including 12Gb/s, 3Gb/s or 1.5Gb/s video, audio, intercom, camera control, tally, data and more – onto a single tactical or SMPTE hybrid fibre cable for robust connectivity even across long distances. The new SilverBack-12G series incorporates all of the features of earlier SilverBack models, including operator-friendly ergonomics and full-sized BNC connectors for easy interfacing. The FiberSaver-12G rackmount model accepts up to 36 optical signals for transport over two fibre cables, while 5-inch square portable models offer six or 12 channels. In addition to 12Gbps signals, FiberSaver12G units are also compatible with 3Gbps and 1.5Gbps inputs for maximum flexibility. 11.D40 Untitled-3 1

Sound choice for IBC Award OUTLINED

This year’s IBC International Honour for Excellence goes to Dolby Laboratories for 50 years of continuous innovation in audio. This is IBC’s highest accolade, and follows a personal presentation of the John Tucker Award (the predecessor to the International Honour for Excellence) to Ray Dolby in 2000. At the time of the first IBC, in 1967, all recordings were analogue, and the build-up of tape

hiss severely limited what creative recording artists could achieve in the studio. With the Type A noise reducer, Dolby solved the problem. With the Type B noise reducer, designed for consumer cassette recorders, it became a household name. A Clockwork Orange, in 1971, was the first film to use Dolby noise reduction on all its pre-mixes. In 1977 the first Star Wars movie took a huge leap

forward with a high-fidelity, four-channel optical sound track. Batman Returns (1992) was the first film with Dolby Digital sound and 5.1 surround, and in 2012 Brave became the first to feature Dolby Atmos: object-based audio that can precisely place individual sounds anywhere in a three-dimensional space, including overhead. “The significance of Dolby to the development of the creative

electronic arts cannot be underestimated,” said Michael Crimp, CEO of IBC. “Dolby’s great achievements in changing the soundtrack of all our lives, over 50 years, cannot be underestimated, and I am delighted that Dolby is the recipient of the IBC2017 International Honour for Excellence.” The award will be received by Craig Todd, senior VP and CTO at Dolby Laboratories, during tonight’s IBC2017 Awards Ceremony. The show, which starts at 18:30 and is free for

all visitors, takes place in the Auditorium, which the IBC technical team has kitted out with state-of-the-art technology, including Dolby Vision projection and Dolby Atmos sound. All this technology will be given a thorough workout, not only with a look at Dolby’s history but with excerpts from the 2017 UEFA Champions’ League Final, produced by BT Sport in 4K Ultra HD and Dolby Atmos sound. Don’t miss this opportunity to see great football, great pictures and, of course, great sound.

graphyne2 pay-TV suite extended ADB By Ian McMurray Responding to operators’ requirement for agility and fast answers in a changing environment, ADB has extended its graphyne2 pay-TV suite. graphyne2 includes a family of solutions that are designed for pay-TV in online, hybrid and

theibcdaily Q&A OUTLINED

Dan McQuillin, managing director, Broadcast Bionics Has IBC come at a good time for the electronic media industry? Why? 2017 has been a record- and ground-breaking year for Bionics. In partnership with Microsoft, Skype TX for Radio is transforming the way radio engages listeners, we have pioneered technology, revolutionising radio production, delivery and consumption.

IBC2017 comes at the perfect time to share this vision and help customers fit content and studios for social, mobile and smart speaker delivery.

What do you think are the key developments in, or threats to, your market sector at the current time? Consumption of media in general, and audio in

particular, is changing. There are tremendous opportunities to innovate both content and delivery in exciting ways. As we help to make radio interactive, shareable and discoverable, our customers are seeing huge increases in social engagement and delivering enhanced content across a range of platforms and devices to new audiences.

IBC’s Wrap-Up: What you might have missed By Chris Forrester Monday’s IBC Wrap-Up session [Forum, 11.30-13.00] somehow always manages to capture the very essence of the year’s conference and exhibition highlights.

Few delegates can attend all of the conference sessions, or walk all of IBC’s exhibition halls, and not even IBC’s distinguished Wrap-Up panellists faithfully promise to cover every debate, or visit every stand. But they will have closely followed the trends

and developments in all of IBC’s key topics. Moderated by John Ive, IABM’s strategic insight director, and with panellists including the EBU director of technology and innovation Simon Fell, GfK head of customer and audience

theibcdaily Today in the Content Everywhere Hub OUTLINED

Today’s debates on the IBC Content Everywhere Hub stage tackle two key topics for OTT creators and service providers. How do you first design and then build a service when you are aiming for large audiences? The Hub is host to a series of 20-minute presentations from exhibitors, which today run from 10:00-17:30. Twice during the day there are hour-long debates, led by

those with experience and in-depth knowledge, to tackle the big questions. At 13:00 the topic is building broadcast-scale OTT audiences and moving towards broadcast economics. Representatives from Streamroot and Wowza will explore new technologies to close the gap between broadcast and online distribution economics, and business models that

can be used to build large audiences online. Later, at 15:30, the debate moves on to service design considerations in the multi-screen world. Even while the market is being fragmented by screen size, resolution and device operating system, the consumer is demanding to be able to switch between different screens to suit their movements. Representatives from ACCESS,

Higher dynamic range than the nakedEYE Indiecam By David Fox The new nakedEYE HDRi is a specialised camera system for creating spherical 360° HDRi (high dynamic range imaging) shots and sequences used for CGI and VFX lighting – these capture and combine several different, lower dynamic range exposures to offer the widest possible dynamic range result. The camera allows for highly automated and very quick

recordings of large exposure brackets, and provides timer functions (delayed recording start) and the recording of bracket sequences for moving shots and timelapse. All settings and values are stored permanently until they are changed by the user. The nakedEYE HDRi system, which is based on Indiecam’s 380g nakedEYE 4K 50/60p VR-camera, records images in the uncompressed 12-bit CinemaDNG Raw format. It is a high-quality, high-resolution,

By Ian McMurray SmartBEAM is a multi-screen delivery solution being demonstrated by Eutelsat at IBC. The company said it addresses the growing number of IP-native screens, while leveraging all the advantages of satellite broadcast to offer rich video content and a high-quality user experience. TV operators can broadcast video content in IP format via satellite, creating a network dedicated to all IP-native devices such as tablets and smartphones. The solution can be deployed at home as well as in public venues. According to Eutelsat, the inherent strength of satellite broadcasting enables TV operators to provide ubiquitous coverage with a guaranteed quality of service, and extend OTT video services across the territory irrespective of local internet connection speeds or network congestion. SmartBEAM is designed to offer the same experience to users located beyond the range of terrestrial networks, eliminating user frustration with re-buffering as terrestrial networks saturate. Combining satellite broadcasting with advanced video players is said to allow low video latency and fast channel zapping times, irrespective of the number of simultaneous users, further enhancing the end user experience. TV operator distribution costs remain stable even as service usage increases, according to Eutelsat, while end-users can enjoy unlimited streaming time, irrespective of their monthly mobile data plan. 1.D59

If you want to put a powerful light aloft, you either call in a huge crane or you can attach Light & Motion’s Stella Pro 10,000c to a drone. Its 10,000-lumen LED outputs up to 20,580 Lux at 1m, allowing the 750g light to deliver the equivalent 5600K output of a 400W HMI more than four times its size and weight. A pair of these can easily be flown by one of the larger professional drones. “Being able to place that much light in the air plus the ability to add light modifiers makes this a powerful aerial solution. As an aerial cinematographer, the Stella Pro 10,000c has opened lighting possibilities

I never thought possible,” said Chris Odom of drone cinematography and photography specialists FireFly Media Group. The robust IP54-rated 10,000c can be used with a wide range of mounts, modifiers and power options, has a TLCI score of 93, offers continuous dimming and controlled focus from 120° down to 50° or 25°, and is flicker-free to 1,000fps.

Generating revenues for OTT aggregators through auto ad detection K.A. Srinivasan, co-founder, Amagi The broadcast industry is seeing a growing shift away from the demand for traditional linear broadcasts and towards OTT and video-on-demand (VoD) viewership. An ABI Research report published in January predicted that live-linear OTT services alone would grow to about $7bn in global revenue by 2021, up from about $1bn in 2016. This shift has been on the upswing for a few years now, and today traditional TV networks are rapidly adding OTT and VoD services to their offerings to remain competitive. ‘Cord cutters’ are growing in number so much that most traditional broadcasters are now delivering their content either via their own OTT platforms

or through independent OTT content-aggregation platforms. With this paradigm shift, OTT content-aggregation platforms have become key players in the current OTT landscape. OTT platforms are becoming popular with advertisers as well, owing to the ability to deliver targeted advertising on an individual level. With the possibility of delivering mid-roll video ads in live linear content over the internet to the right audience, advertisers are looking forward to shifting a large chunk of their advertising dollars from traditional TV to OTT platforms. However, the biggest challenge for OTT aggregators is in detecting the ad avails present in live streaming

channels and inserting personalised ads for targeted reach. In an ideal world, it is expected that any broadcaster would supply ad triggers in the stream to enable the aggregator to detect and replace ad avails with personalised ads. But, many broadcasters do not provide the ad triggers. As a result, it’s up to the aggregator to detect and replace the ad avails. Because ad avails cannot be detected, aggregators are not able to monetise the premium ad inventory. It’s against this backdrop that we enter IBC2017, where we believe OTT aggregators will be looking for solutions that help make the most of this monetisation opportunity – thereby creating better value for

themselves and for advertisers, and in turn providing a superior, engaging and personalised experience to the audience. Amagi stands ready to serve OTT platform providers worldwide as they address the complex challenges of monetising content and personalising ads. Amagi is leading the way to a solution with machine-learning-based automatic ad-detection technology. With this technology, OTT aggregators can automatically identify ads in input broadcast streams and replace them with dynamically inserted personalised ads on the server side. Visitors to Amagi’s stand at IBC2017 will see automated ad-detection technology

in action and learn about its benefits, namely how it: eliminates OTT aggregators’ dependence on broadcasters to provide any type of ad triggers; creates a new source of ad revenue instead of forgoing ad avail opportunities; detects ads in real time on live linear channels streamed on OTT platforms; integrates with leading ad networks for programmatic buying; inserts ads dynamically with server-side ad stitching; and scales widely for deployment across regions These benefits ultimately help ensure the viability of an OTT aggregator’s platform. 2.B19

Giving live streaming a sporting chance All Seeing Eye integrated Limelight Networks

WISI

By Anne Morris

By Ian McMurray

As more high-profile live sporting matches are streamed online, the delay between the live event and the online stream has become an increasing source of frustration for online viewers who may read about highlights through social media feeds before seeing them online. To address this issue, Limelight Networks has introduced Limelight Video Acceleration for live streaming delivery and is showing this capability in Hall 14. The solution utilises the Limelight Orchestrate Platform and the company’s live video delivery expertise to shrink live streaming latencies to as low as five seconds with standard HLS and MPEG-DASH video streaming formats.

The integration of Inca Networks’ All Seeing Eye monitoring system and troubleshooting tool with the WISI Tangram and Chameleon video processing platforms has been announced. The Inca All Seeing Eye 5420 is a multi-view visual monitoring platform created to give operators greater visibility and reliability within their network. It became part of the WISI portfolio when the company acquired Inca Networks in 2015. The All Seeing Eye offers sophisticated monitoring, including an overview mosaic of all IP video streams, making it easy to check the performance of an entire headend on a web

Limelight aims to shrink live streaming latencies

With Limelight Video Acceleration, operators are able to “deliver the biggest matches of the season or online gaming events to their viewers with the lowest latency available from standard video streaming formats,” claimed the company. Limelight Video Acceleration complements the Limelight Video Platform to simplify the management and distribution

of VoD content. Limelight is also demonstrating new capabilities for digital rights management support to protect video content from copying and sharing, improved video audience analytics for audience usage metrics to aid ad monetisation, and cloud-based DVR capability for recording live streams to VoD files for future playback. 14.G01

browser, said the company. Built to monitor all outputs within a network, the All Seeing Eye immediately alerts the operator if a service is down or impaired. According to WISI, it also gives operators the ability to easily troubleshoot video streams by tracing impairments through the network with simple click-through to local and remote system management interfaces. Alert methods include email notifications, colour-coded video mosaics and SNMP alerts. Powering the All Seeing Eye is VidiOS, Inca’s web-based user interface. Features include inbound and outbound video thumbnails and detailed stream statistics, including PID and payload details, and error warnings. 5.B50

Drones go mainstream OUTLINED

Douglas I. Sheer, chief executive and chief analyst of D.I.S. Consulting Corporation Drones are becoming as much of a mainstream accessory product as tripods or batteries. In 2004 drone systems began to be used by the military to deliver ordinance in war zones. The earliest recorded use of an unmanned aerial vehicle for warfighting occurred on August 22, 1849, when the Austrians attacked the Italian city of Venice with unmanned balloons loaded with explosives known as Austrian balloons. Drones then became popular consumer toys catering to the same sort of customer who in the past might have found pleasure in flying radio-controlled model aeroplanes. But, in the past few years, drones have been taken seriously as commercial and professional tools, particularly for carrying cameras into hard to reach places much more affordably and safely than helicopters or small aeroplanes. From the recent high-rise fire in London’s Grenfell Tower where a drone was used during and after the horrific event to search for victims, to the trans-channel flight of a large drone car carrying a pilot, to routine uses in movies, drone technology is rapidly becoming a mainstream professional tool. Most of the dominant brands of drones in use among professionals are, not surprisingly, made in China and sell for prices not too far above those of similar consumer models, averaging in the low thousands of US dollars or Euros. There are, however, many brands, often

made in America or Europe, that are larger, more rugged and often far pricier than the Chinese brands; these are often dedicated to heavier lifting, longer range operation or niche applications. Miniaturisation and the manufacture of ultralight cameras using microfibre are allowing for the use of even smaller drones as well, allowing for some truly unique applications. Sizing the commercial/ professional market requires segregation from the consumer market which is best when done by application rather than manufacturer or model. In the US alone, 820,000 mainly professional/commercial and consumer individual drones have been governmentally registered for approved operation since that became a requirement in 2015. However the true installed base – cutting across all types of applications and users – likely runs into the millions of units. Many millions of consumers have purchased them but not registered with the authorities. In many regions registration is still a new and untested concept.

Factors and features favoured In a recent survey, respondents were asked to rank the features and factors they would value most in a new video drone. Professionals who use drones in Europe (indicated by the orange stripe in the chart above) chose Ease of Operation, GPS Tracking of drones to reduce losses and WiFi control

capability as the three most sought-after factors and features overall.

Units and values The above findings are just some of those found in the extensive D.I.S. Consulting Corporation publication Professional Drones World 2016 which is subscribed to by many professional-use drone manufacturers. The report, which was published in the autumn of 2016, looked exclusively at non-military and non-consumer uses of drones on a worldwide basis. Markets studied included: broadcast (including news and sports), production, freelance capture, institutional, agricultural, construction and rental house. Regional breaks were made for the US, Europe, Middle East

Pro-Palette spreads even colour Zylight By David Fox A soft, even wash of light is promised from the new 350W Pro-Palette asymmetric cyclorama light. Designed for TV studios or theatres, it offers enough output to cover 8m cyc

walls. It shines pure white for a clean chromakey wash, and includes Zylight’s Color Mode to produce millions of colours without gels or filters from its red, green, blue and white LEDs. Built for floor use or truss mount, the Pro-Palette features solid aluminium and steel construction. Up to four Pro-

Palette fixtures can be daisy chained through their PowerCon connectors. The lightweight Pro-Palette features integrated DMX operation as well as an intuitive control panel for smooth 0-100 per cent dimming. It also has dual auto cooling fans. “Our IS3 panel light with Color Mode continues to

and Africa, the Americas and Asia Pacific. While consumer units run into the millions, this study targeted only the commercial and professional uses of drones. Our report showed 468,977 drones were owned/ installed among purely commercial and professional users by the end of 2015. It also showed that 231,000 units were expected to be purchased in 2016 by year’s end for the same or similar professional uses, on a global basis. The US has been and remains the single strongest regional marketplace, with Europe the second strongest. The installed value of all units as of 2015 was depicted as $1.4bn and the annual market value in 2016 was estimated to reach $645m be one of our most popular fixtures and the Pro-Palette brings that same rich colour palette in a more powerful package to provide even light output to larger cycs, horizontals and backgrounds,” said Joe Arnao, president of Zylight, who claimed that it’s an affordable choice (at

for the single year, worldwide. Production and freelance capture segments account for the most units installed, with construction and institutional (including educational, corporate and governmental uses such as police and fire) in a close third and fourth place, respectively. While drones have seen a wildly dramatic uptake in this past decade, particularly the past five years, some saturation may be seen in the commercial and professional units because of such intense purchasing. We anticipate that non-camera uses, such as delivery drones will soon dwarf camera-toting models in professional settings. Douglas I.

theibcdaily OPINION OUTLINED

Goodbye closed-box single vendor model, hello software innovation Joop Janssen, chief executive, Aperi While the broadcast industry, especially within live production, has been quick to talk about IP and its benefits, it’s been slow to adopt it in any measure that will make a difference to a broadcaster’s output or its bottom line. As a result, broadcasters and content creators have yet to benefit from the speed of innovation that’s made big differences in other markets that are now software driven. This is in part because our live production infrastructures need to be as reliable as possible. Real-world deployment can’t be done until new technology has been tried and tested to make sure it won’t fail when put into action.

But the fact is that real-time IP switching and virtualised media computing has proven itself as reliable, with virtualised infrastructures now operating 24/7 in some implementations. Not only this, but it’s allowing highest quality uncompressed video formats to be created and delivered to the distribution chain with lower latency than we’ve ever seen within live production workflows. When IP is really adopted, it makes way for virtualised media functions to be placed at the heart of live production workflows and the industry can continue to evolve. Production teams have more access to cameras and can produce more footage than ever while

operating with significantly fewer resources and equipment. And, with a floating software scheme, broadcasters no longer need to pay for hardware that sits idle – instead they just pay when in operation. But the technology implementation is just the first stage. There is a final hurdle to overcome. We can’t just replace SDI with IP connectivity or simply install the latest IP-centric pieces of technology. We, as an industry, need to change our approach to how we create content. Point-to-point, SDI-restricted workflows within an OB facility are no longer the best way to produce content. In a market where everything from the

camera to the end-user delivery infrastructure needs to be as flexible as possible, a single-brand, closed box approach no longer cuts it. The production needs differ hugely between football matches and tennis games, for example. With a virtualised live workflow, facilities providers or broadcasters can easily create a production infrastructure that’s custom-built for each task; and it can do this in a fraction of the time and cost that it takes to reconfigure an SDI-based hardware-centric OB facility. To really take the next step in how we create live programming, we must all design, create and operate within live production

video-centric customers, SGrecast is also of appeal to radio broadcasters expanding their offerings with video. Eduardo Martinez, director of technology, StreamGuys, said: “Whether sporting events, talk shows or worship services, today’s audiences expect more options for live podcasting and programming, and SGrecast enables quick repurposing of valuable material. Our new video support is also ideal for expanding the reach of radio broadcasters who augment their programming with live video experiences connection with provided screws. It comes with a removable wooden grip with a cold shoe on top, and a hand strap. The $495 cage includes numerous ¼-20 points for mounting accessories.

Vendors must share software platforms and the hardware that houses it, giving the customer the choice of how they process their functionality at every stage of production. The idea that the industry is at a ‘crossroads’, ‘a turning point’ or even facing a ‘step-change’ are all turns of phrase that we’ve heard enough, but it’s not that ominous. All we need to do is think in a slightly different way and we can put in place far more efficient and flexible workflows that enable even better live programming. 2.C21

OTT: a smorgasbord of intricate dishes Nicolay Schweigaard, communications manager, Appear TV used to be a source of conformity; a common reference point both in the living room, but also around the lunch table the following day. “Did you happen to see Friends last night?” Not anymore. Granted, this is no novel observation, but the fact that we can customise the content we watch based on libraries offering thousands of hours of content at the click of a button has created new ways of defining one’s identity. When I meet new people, I like to steer the conversation towards what the person watches on TV. There are two reasons for this newly acquired interest: firstly, what can they

recommend? And secondly, what we watch defines who we are. Albeit cynical, I often find I have more in common with people who watch the same things as me, or at least are able to argue for why they watch what they watch. Everyone likes options. Imagine going to a restaurant with one appetiser, one main entrée and one dessert. It could be a good sign, but what if you’re craving beef and the entrée is trout? What we’re seeing right now in terms of content offered on OTT platforms is more like a smorgasbord of intricate dishes. Pick one. Not to your liking? Spit it out and go for the next

tempting dish, until you’ve found something you can binge eat (watch) until your eyes swell up like coasters. But what about the other side of the table? IBC is not primarily viewer-centric, but for the supplier of TV – be it content, equipment, technology or a combination. The focus of this article has thus far largely been on OTT, but linear has by no means lost its appeal. Much is said of cord-cutters, cord-nevers and millennials. They are no doubt a force to be reckoned with, but they are still only one of many forces that drive the future of TV. At Appear, we consciously expand our portfolio to meet the

diverse needs of our customer base. We have customers in 120 countries; every one of them with distinct needs and preferences. The infrastructure of one country can vary immensely to the next. As such, pointing to overall trends is difficult, but our products reflect the ability to handle the assorted needs our customers present to us. What opportunities do we see for our customers in the current market environment? There are obvious and immense advantages to prepare for the shift from SDI to IP. New TVs are sold as 4K compatible, with consumers expecting broadcast to offer enhanced

picture resolution going forward. Appear has developed a novel HW platform, the X, operating as a default firewall, intended for the contribution and distribution market, with ultra-low delay and the ability to compress HEVC. IBC is our biggest show during the year, and for good reason. The exhibition sheds light on major technological challenges and opportunities, and we’re excited for yet another five days of knowledge sharing and feedback from new and existing customers. 1.C61

Multi-battery Micro Charger upgraded PAG By David Fox The Micro Charger, which PAG claims is the broadcast industry’s smallest, most economic multi-battery charger, is now available for the PAGlink V-Mount System of intelligent linking batteries. The upgraded charger features a new, tougher moulded housing and is designed to accept DC as well as AC input.

The charging unit clips onto the V-Mount contacts of a single PAGlink battery, which can be linked to up to seven additional batteries of any rated capacity, in any state of charge. The charger addresses the most-discharged batteries first and then fully charges all the batteries in the stack simultaneously. The ability to charge multiple batteries, using one channel, is unique to the PAGlink system. Using the Micro Charger, three

fully discharged 96Wh batteries can be fully charged in 12 hours, without user intervention.

chart, luminance heat-map, vectorscope and waveform, all supporting Dolby PQ. The new IP decapsulation and encapsulation option for the Sx Tag portable range is also being debuted at IBC2017, along with 2K-SDI monitoring and a more versatile, dual instrument display with the Rx 2000 rackmount generator and analyser.

In July, a new cloud-service for OTT video monitoring was announced by Witbe, and the company is discussing this with visitors to its IBC stand. Already adopted on-premise by multiple operators and broadcasters to analyse and optimise the quality of their OTT video services, the new capability can now be delivered through Witbe’s reference network, Galilei, from many points of presence in the world. According to the company, its new offering allows the delivery of KPIs with greater accuracy. Performance trends over time can, the company says, be more easily tracked independent of network stability. Additionally, because the number of networks involved in delivery of the OTT service is reduced, service quality is more easily derived.

Lacaze: “It was crucial to have our own network”

Marie-Véronique Lacaze, president and CEO, Witbe, said: “From the beginning, we were convinced that we could not measure a service’s variations of quality using a network with random performance. It was crucial to have our own network, to establish a frame of reference with constant measurements. We completely control the performance of our reference network, Galilei, and it is adapted for OTT video measures. Witbe is proving its unique expertise and its desire to assist its clients in their daily challenges to deliver all their services with the best quality of experience possible.” 5.A69

Versio Platform improves playout customisation OUTLINED

Imagine Communications By Ian McMurray Broadcast playout centres remain one of the last bastions of dedicated hardware and on-premises architectures, but a new offering from Imagine Communications, being launched at IBC, aims to change that. Versio Platform is described as a menu of tightly integrated

functional building blocks that offer media companies new levels of customisation in building out highly efficient and effective playout facilities. By selecting the appropriate modules, Imagine said that systems architects can create highly tailored playout facilities, precisely meeting operational requirements. Further, because the architecture is genuinely modular, the company claimed that the system can be upgraded seamlessly as market demand evolves, adding new

capacity and functionality without disrupting existing operations. The system is built on Imagine Communications’ microservices architecture, making it inherently virtualised and cloud-native. The pure-IP solution is designed from the ground up to take advantage of highly agile, geo-dispersed environments based on commercial-off-theshelf hardware. Brick Eksten, chief product officer, Imagine Communications, said: “With

Versio Platform, Imagine Communications is significantly accelerating the evolution of playout operations. It provides unprecedented flexibility and customisation, and it supports virtually any configuration or deployment option, including premises-based installation. A cloud implementation allows broadcasters and media companies to migrate from a capex to an opex business model.” 4.A01

Creating stickiness through aggregation Access By Anne Morris Consumer demand for multiple content catalogues has traditionally forced viewers to subscribe to many services, but increased competition from OTT pure players means that pay-TV

operators need to increase stickiness to their services. Offering a high-quality content catalogue is no longer enough; operators now need solutions that combine their offerings with access to personal content across multiple devices. Access is using IBC to demonstrate to operators

how deploying a simplified service that enables access to all content sources at once through a single application can enhance their offering. Neale Foster, managing director and COO, Access Europe, said: “Today’s consumers have an abundance of content available at their

fingertips, but they have to navigate numerous apps in order to access it. Through the work we have done with large operators such as Reliance Jio Infocomm, we are showing visitors to our IBC stand the benefits of aggregating multiple content sources and delivering them via a single application.” Access on-stand demonstrations include Access Twine for media distribution in

multiscreen environments. This enables operators to ensure that consumers stay within their branded environment for all their media needs. Also on show is the NetFront browser family including the new Browser BE Software Development Kit v2.4 that will show operators how to use standards to deliver best-inclass services up to 4K and 8K. 14.D14

theibcdaily OPINION OUTLINED

Video and film carriers into master archive files Time is pressing to reformat physical audio-visual carrier-based collections, says Jörg Houpert, chief technology officer, Cube-Tec International The reasons why are different, depending on the type of media, but not executing a strict, timetabled process for concluding the final move to the all-digital audio-visual archive will leave a big future burden for any archive. You only get one chance to get the final transfer to the all-digital archive right. For institutions with large single carrier collections there is no time left for continuous learning. Selection of the right migration equipment is a critical decision right now. Even with an outsourced migration project this decision should never be delegated to a digitisation service provider. What is desperately needed is a highly cost-efficient migration technology that drastically increases efficiency

by parallelisation but guarantees trustworthy transfer quality. This requires a mind shift to a digitisation set-up that approaches the task like a production line. The products used thus far for migration from video and film carriers haven’t solved this requirement. Only a next-generation technology is able to solve this demanding requirement for trustworthy large-scale media migration. The production line approach must provide a fully monitored process with parallelisation and implement an elaborate quality control process. Continuous supervision of the signal extraction and signal processing path must be fully integrated into the migration workflow. Cube-Tec has previously developed the Quadriga

migration technology together with the research and development departments of Institut für Rundfunktechnik (IRT) and the Fraunhofer Institute (FhG IIS). There are separate highly specialised Quadriga solutions for audio-, video- and film-based carrier collections. As Quadriga Audio is recognised as the leading technology in the world for quality controlled large-scale migration from physical audio carriers, Quadriga Video has inherited the same magical properties. With constant monitoring of VTR interactive status reporting (ISR) and advanced RF level surveillance and real-time AV-signal analytics, an operator can supervise four VTR playback devices with a single standard

PC workstation using the playback-while-recording mode. Quadriga Video is well on course to follow in Quadriga’s successful footsteps. Quadriga Film is the latest incarnation and makes its world debut at IBC2017. Equipped with pioneering features, the new moving image migration solution was developed in co-operation with MWA Nova and 5micron. Quadriga Film includes new inventions in sensor technology and a tension-controlled film movement avoiding a capstan drive and sprocket wheels to minimise stress for fragile archive film. The software measures and classifies photochemical and mechanical attributes. It can distinguish between superimposed and surface

damage by using a newly developed, patent pending, double-sided surface diagnostic sensor as well as a picture analysis technique. The first generation surface diagnostic sensor was developed by 5micron as part of the German dwerft research project. Its diagnostics utilise dark field measurements supporting extremely fine resolution measured in sub-microns. In addition, Quadriga automatically documents any perforation damage and the condition and types of film splices as well as film shrinkage. 5.C41

Distro deal for wireless comms Broadcast Solutions By Mark Hallinger The addition of LaON Intercom products to the portfolio of Broadcast Products, a division of Broadcast Solutions, is big news on the stand. The products of the South Korean intercom specialist work in the 5GHz UNII band and support non-compressed audio, thus

ensuring audio performance, said the company. Broadcast Products is now the exclusive distributor of LaON products in much of Europe. LaON 5GHz digital wireless intercom systems are high-performance wireless communication devices that can be used where critical and clear communication is key and belt pack mobility is required.

They allow full duplex hands-free communications with consistent audio clarity, said Broadcast Products. Other features include the use of an IP-based repeater together with a remote base station, systems that offer up to 11 full-duplex audio channels, five communication group channels and AES 256-bit Level 3 encryption. 8.A74

Meeting challenges in pay-TV Nagra

By Ian McMurray Changing consumer behaviour, increased OTT competition and fragmentation are leading to new challenges for the pay-TV industry, according to Nagra.

36 IBC D3 2017 v1JRJMcK.indd 1

The company is focusing on helping service providers and content rights owners at the show address the new challenges of the pay-TV landscape. Ivan Verbesselt, SVP group marketing, Nagra, said: “The battle for the consumer’s heart is still on. And while it seems

consumers have never been so spoiled with their TV services, challenges remain to win them over. A transformation needs to take place and a new TV ecosystem needs to emerge to successfully compete in this new landscape. Innovation in pay-TV has actually never been so critical to success,

and is the driving theme behind our 2017 showcase.” Highlighted on the Nagra stand is what the company describes as an ‘efficient, cost-effective and fully featured TV solution ecosystem for pay-TV’. The company said it was leveraging the latest OpenTV

technologies to deliver a unified, simple, intuitive and seamless user experience across all screens. It features Nagra’s latest operator-controlled UI, which the company claimed could enable faster deployment, greater management and richness of service, and offers a realistic path to emerging experiences like VR. 1.C81

Encryption in the cloud BuyDRM By Anne Morris First-time IBC exhibitor BuyDRM is showcasing its new KeyOS CloudPack encryption-as-a-service (EaaS) platform in Hall 14 this week. The technology is designed to enable the cloud-based encryption of MSS, HLS and DASH content using the three popular consumer DRMs: Microsoft PlayReady, Google Widevine and Apple FairPlay. The company explained that EaaS enables content owners to take existing content stored in Amazon’s AWS Cloud, Google’s Media Cloud or Microsoft’s Azure Cloud and encrypt it using military-grade AES 128-bit encryption compatible with today’s popular consumer devices. BuyDRM said it identified a significant gap in the existing conventional video workflow and deployed its KeyOS Multipack

Server into the three most popular cloud platforms, thereby moving the studio-required encryption solution next to the ‘in the clear’ studio content. BuyDRM also recently announced that the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) is now using the KeyOS MultiKey service for its VoD and catchup service, iview. ABC’s iview service records an average of 50 million monthly plays and accounts for roughly half of all streaming time for Australian TV video services. In addition, BuyDRM and SONIFI Solutions recently announced a commercial agreement whereby SONIFI is securing VoD content using KeyOS MultiKey. SONIFI chose the KeyOS platform to deliver major studio content to set-top boxes in the world’s premier hotel brands. SONIFI’s OTT VoD app gives guests access to the latest movies in the comfort of their hotel room. 14.N23

DVB committed to helping broadcasters embrace targeted advertising OUTLINED

By Thierry Fautier and Vincent Grivet, co-chairs of the DVB Commercial Study Mission Group on Targeted Advertising Targeted advertising is a necessary evolution within the TV broadcast ecosystem. The overall advertising market is shifting rapidly towards digital, programmatic and addressable delivery models, which are growing at a high rate, while TV advertising is essentially stable, leading to a situation where digital exceeds TV advertising in most markets. As advertising is an essential source of revenue for the TV ecosystem, TV advertising must, and will, be a part of this shift towards targeted/ data-driven models. This has already started in certain areas, mostly vertical platforms like pay-TV and OTT, and is now being actively considered by classical TV broadcasters. This shift to targeted models is vital to ensure that advertising on broadcast TV is able to compete effectively with newer internet-based platforms, which have increased their advertising revenue at the expense of broadcast TV. Targeted TV advertising is expected to help broadcasters increase unit selling prices and enable better monetisation of TV inventories, and may also increase viewer satisfaction by serving more relevant advertisements. DVB is committed to helping broadcasters, a core community within DVB, embrace targeted advertising. To this end, as broadcasters consider their options to leverage targeted advertising, DVB initiated a study mission group (SMG) in February 2017 to reflect upon the relevance and the possibilities of generating some elements of standardisation for targeted advertising, which would help broadcasters reach their business goals. The preliminary findings of the SMG were presented to the DVB Commercial Module in June 2017. One of the key findings of the study mission is that no

40 IBC D3 2017 v1JRJMcK.indd 1

satisfactory solution currently exists that enables broadcasters (in a horizontal, classical FTA TV environment) to deploy and benefit from targeted advertising. This is a concern for broadcasters as it limits their ability to compete with new media, for example. HbbTV includes some of the components required to enable targeted advertising in the broadcast context, and some technical trials have been done, but it does not fully meet the requirements of broadcasters. The lack of a clear and full deployment perspective of the HbbTV specification (including some of its optional features across all geographic markets) is also a constraint. Given this analysis, the SMG concluded that DVB should engage in work towards generating a targeted advertising-enabling technical framework, focusing on a horizontal broadcast business model at the minimum. As

vertical/pay-TV operator models have more room to manoeuvre and have started some (proprietary) implementations, it seems they have less interest at this time to define and adopt a new standardised framework. However, it is quite likely that if and when, as the case may be, a DVB targeted advertising standardised framework for horizontal broadcast does exist and is widely used across the market, operators would benefit from leveraging such a harmonised framework. This being the case, their specific needs should not be ignored when DVB is planning its specifications. Some of the aspects to be dealt with in such a future DVB targeted advertising framework include: in-band signalling; the enabling of virtually seamless signal switching, so that the broadcast quality experience is not compromised; reliable and accurate reporting, etc; and the readiness of broadcasters

because their business models need to be able to quickly access a very large base of addressable receivers. As new and demanding privacy regulations, such as the recent General Data Protection Regulation issued by the European Commission, will have a very high impact on the overall structuring and operations of targeted advertising, it is also important that a future DVB targeted advertising specification will enable full compliance with these regulations, although it is not up to a technical specification to resolve the delicate privacy requirements. The DVB Steering Board has recently approved the formation of a dedicated Commercial Module on Targeted Advertising (CM-TA) to develop the commercial requirements for a future DVB targeted advertising specification (or set of specifications). In doing so, DVB will obviously pay special

attention to similar activities engaged in HbbTV, its cousin organisation, as many targeted advertising-enabling mechanisms are present to a certain level in the HbbTV specification(s). DVB will also make sure to extend its reach to internet digital advertising in regards to generating the appropriate interfaces between the broadcast chain and the existing ad tech digital systems. While developing a DVB targeted advertising-enabling technical framework seems a legitimate and necessary step to allow broadcasters to adapt to a new market context, it might not be sufficient to guarantee the systematic implementation of the required technical capabilities on horizontal mass-market receivers. Therefore parallel work might be required to foster certain commercial agreements between the broadcasting community and the equipment manufacturers.

Virtual dives into the Arctic OUTLINED

Cleaning and inspection tools for fibre optics Neutrik By Mark Hallinger

IBC visitors can become divers on the showfloor

b<>com By Monica Heck Tested for the first time with the public this summer, b<>com brings its Virtual Artic Expedition demonstration to IBC, enabling visitors to feel like divers themselves. This virtual reality demonstration was initially set up in collaboration with French ocean theme park Océanopolis. During the experiment, groups of volunteer Océanopolis visitors, equipped with VR headsets and headphones, explored the Arctic seafloor 20 miles deep. The visitors, transformed into divers, move around in a hyper-realistic

58 IBC D3 2017 v1JRJMcK.indd 1

synthetic marine environment and interact freely with the fauna and flora of this extreme environment. The initial demonstration, which took place over the summer, allowed Océanopolis to measure the public’s desire for science-themed virtual reality experiences and to evaluate the business model for this highly innovative new attraction. During the experiment at Océanopolis, b<>com non-intrusively measured the psychological and physiological reactions of participants to improve the system. The Virtual Arctic Expedition demonstrates the ability for users to move wirelessly and without

lag within the virtual environment. It promotes natural interactions between users and the environment as well as among participants. The company hopes to expand its technologies to ‘edutainment’ scenarios, as well as professional sectors such as health and industry. Other demonstrations by b<>com at IBC include 3D audio for VR for true surround-sound sensations; real-time SDR-HDR conversion, using an FPGA-based prototype platform, converting any older film or footage to a format for HDTV; and next-generation video compression in a 5G context. 8.G14

#IBCShow

The company recently began shipping new cleaning and inspection accessory tools for its OpticalCon Advanced cable connectors. Designed for convenience in the field and as a much-improved method for cleaning the fibre optic ferrules without damage, the new fibre optic cleaning accessories are designed for engineers and technicians whose work routinely involves the use of Neutrik’s OpticalCon fibre optic cables. Neutrick said the operation is easy and intuitive – a user pushes one of the cleaning

tools onto the front face of the OpticalCon Advanced cable connector; the tool latches in place and holds the shutter open. The tool includes holes that are sized and positioned for inserting conventional third-party cleaning tools and inspection probes. These tools eliminate the need to remove the cable connector front housing to access the fibre optic ferrules, simplifiying cleaning and inspection, said Neutrik. The tools also make the process safer: by leaving the connector’s front housing in place, the risk of inadvertent damage to the fibre is reduced, said the company 8.C90

EBU set to prove multi-CDN advantages OUTLINED

Bram Tullemans, senior project manager, EBU The EBU has started a multiCDN project to help its members deliver content reliably over the internet in a cost-effective manner. The service is called EBU Flow and has two main objectives: to improve the quality of online delivery and to reduce the costs that content providers are facing. The project kicked-off with a pilot phase including five broadcasters, a load balancer and three CDNs. The online media traffic from the participating broadcasters is load balanced dynamically using real-time performance information gathered throughout the delivery chain. One of the sources used is Quality of Experience information collected from the content provider’s player or website that

is activated by the visit of an end user at a certain moment in time from a specific location. EBU members can use the load balancing solution to offload their online delivery traffic entirely or include their own traffic arrangements and business rules in the mix, to automatically switch suppliers when peering lines get congested for example, or to direct data flows to preferred distribution partners. The pilot will provide both technical, operational and business related findings. From a technical and architectural perspective we will learn how origins should behave in a multi-CDN setup and how geofencing, token authentication, HTTPS secured traffic, cache

purging, etc. can be applied when traffic is load-balanced over several CDNs. The combination of real-time metrics and performance of different rule-based traffic flow algorithms will be tested to create a fully redundant and cost-optimised solution. The pilot phase will capture requirements for a multi-CDN setup that will allow members to tender or deploy such a solution themselves. Interviews with EBU members and engagement with the industry have shown that there is a consensus that a multi-CDN strategy is necessary to meet the expanding demand for video content, both in terms of geography and throughput. To learn more about Flow, visit the EBU booth for a demo,

IP offers Intelligent Prompting Autoscript

By David Fox Autoscript’s Intelligent Prompting is claimed to be the broadcast industry’s first completely IP-enabled, endto-end teleprompting system. It allows devices to be located anywhere, delivering ease of use and redundancy, and can reduce set-up time by up to 75 per cent. As Intelligent Prompting units generally require no counterbalance, they can be up to 50 per cent lighter than prompters that need counterbalance. This weight

reduction eases payload issues for camera supports and prevents oscillations at the end of robotic movements. Autoscript is also previewing a new, ergonomically-designed foot control for Intelligent Prompting, powered by Ethernet. Also new is its EVO-IP monitor, claimed to be the first prompting monitor to include an Ethernet connection for receiving data from the software and controller for translation into video. “Until now, prompting systems have relied on USB, video, and serial cables to connect the controller to the

prompting engine and deliver prompting output to the monitor. Our customers needed a seamless IP prompting workflow for today’s evolving broadcast environments,” said Autoscript product manager Robin Brown. For simplicity and reliability, Intelligent Prompting avoids using video over IP and ensures that much less data is sent over the IP network. The intelligence needed to generate the script has been incorporated inside each Intelligent Prompting monitor, enabling it to produce the video output directly. The workflow removes the traditional scroll box from the operator

theibcdaily OPINION OUTLINED

Connectivity is becoming mission critical Bogdan Frusina, founder, Dejero As broadcasters and media organisations embrace the cloud as a fully-fledged part of their IT infrastructure and IP workflows, the need for reliable connectivity, especially for news gathering and live event production crews operating remotely and constantly moving from one location to the next, is one of the most pressing challenges faced by the industry today. Broadcasters are faced with a dilemma every time they need to transport live video from a remote location back to their primary broadcast facility. They need to make the always difficult decision to either send their satellite or microwave-equipped vehicle or to take a chance and rely

on mobile technology and, by default, the quality of local mobile coverage. It becomes a trade-off between transmission reliability, on-location flexibility and cost effectiveness. But, what if an expert in blending IP connections was to collaborate with a satellite communications company to address these issues, by combining cellular connectivity from multiple mobile network carriers with Ku band IP satellite connectivity? It would give broadcasters the required bandwidth and the confidence to go live from virtually anywhere. Enter Dejero and Intelsat who have formed a unique partnership to produce the Dejero CellSat solution, which is debuting

at IBC2017. With this new connectivity service, if the bandwidth available from local cellular connections dips due to network congestion or other factors, Dejero CellSat will automatically blend in Ku band IP satellite connectivity provided by Intelsat to boost bandwidth to the requested level for the live shot. Another major challenge facing mobile news crews is the problem of reliable internet connectivity. While internet connectivity is now taken for granted in offices and studios equipped with fibre connections, internet access in the field remains a major challenge. This is despite the fact that remote mobile news crews are getting increasingly

involved in the production process and need to collaborate with personnel back in the broadcast facility from wherever they may be stationed. Consumer-grade MiFi or personal WiFi hotspot devices are often not reliable enough to address this issue, as they suffer from poor signal strength and lack carrier diversity and robustness. Since they also lack cloud management, a fleet of these devices is difficult and impractical to track and manage, especially when many units are deployed. The Dejero Gateway, also at IBC, provides field crews with reliable, high-throughput, enterprise-grade internet connectivity that enables them to send and receive large

files and access newsroom systems and other private network servers as if they were working in the broadcast facility. With Dejero Gateway, a reporter can download archived b-roll footage, for example, edit in the field, and send a completed package ready for air without needing to return to the station. They can then move on to their next assignment. This kind of technology saves field crews valuable time, improves their operational efficiency and enables greater collaboration while on location. 12.B42

Live demo of ST 2110 interoperability Bridge Technologies By Ian McMurray

Frostad: “Interoperability … is crucial to the future of our industry”

A demonstration on the Bridge Technologies’ stand features Bridge’s VB440-SW dual 40 Gigabit Ethernet software probe and Embrionix Design’s SDI conversion modules. It uses live playback sources to show how

the SMPTE ST 2110 standard is a practicable way forward to achieve interoperability, by generating live streams that enable visitors to view network performance in real time. Simen K Frostad, chairman, Bridge Technologies, said: “Achieving absolute and straightforward interoperability between the systems of every

broadcast manufacturer is crucial to the future of our industry, and it is uniquely made possible by IP technology. There is no doubt that IP can do, in technical terms, whatever we as an industry need it to do in order to achieve the interoperability that is fundamental to our success. The industry absolutely must embrace IP.”

“At Bridge Technologies, we have long been proponents of the significant advantages and benefits that IP brings,” continued Frostad. “As an industry, we’re making huge strides in the right direction – but there is still much to do if the true potential of IP is to be realised.” 1.F68

Comparing the state of the OTT industry Joe Foster, chief executive, Easel TV It doesn’t seem that long ago, in the days before Netflix, that IPTV and VoD were bywords for progress. This was the exclusive domain of pay-TV operators and telcos who were serviced by a limited set of suppliers of complex on-site infrastructure. These days online video platforms (OVPs) are viewed as the foundation of a more progressive cloud-based approach. However, these OVPs initially set out to host and stream video as a service, not specifically to build and operate TV channels or VoD. By combining services of third-party software houses and systems integrators for each solution, the approach of OVPs often results in costly

service deliveries and carries a significant risk of instability following launch. Such barriers mean that even in this new, cloud-based world, VoD channels are beyond the reach of many, such as niche content providers, brand entertainment and advertisers. Using YouTube could avoid OVP costs but brands and content owners suffer brand ownership and monetising opportunity issues, making this undesirable. IBC2017 will see a lot of companies redefine themselves as OTT. Some will be OTT ‘suppliers’ – vertical market suppliers of components needed in an overall OTT end-to-end service. Others will see themselves as complete

OTT service providers – capable of offering a full end-to-end service. Many OVPs will likely lay claim to being both. But how many have simply modified their existing video hosting services rather than designing their technology from the ground up? How many have blended multiple disparate management systems into one, rather than providing a single ‘built by design’ dashboard? How many call on separate consumer player apps from separate app partners, rather than creating their own integrated device ‘player’ apps? IBC2017 provides an ideal opportunity to compare the state of the OTT industry, to challenge the market and see

the benefits of a fully architected OTT ecosystem. Suggested TV is an end-to-end OTT video service, designed from the ground up. With our own consumer-facing apps, Suggested TV boasts an award-winning user experience across web, TV and mobile devices, including iOS, Android, Amazon Fire TV, Samsung, Chromecast and Opera TV, to name a handful. Suggested TV provides one coherent management dashboard covering everything required to run the service; from CMS and accounts to marketing and analytics. Our platform supports multiple commercial models, including SVoD, TVoD and AVoD.

Watts up with LED lights Canara Lighting Industries By David Fox Three new LED lighting ranges have been introduced by Canara, including a high-power panel for large studios and a colour tuneable Fresnel. The 250W CCT tuneable LED Fresnel offers adjustable colour temperature from 2700K to 6500K, with a TLCI score above 95. It has manual and DMX 512 control, with silent

64 IBC D3 2017 v1JRJMcK.indd 1

operation (fan noise less than 20dB) and 0-100 per cent flicker free dimming. Output at 2m goes from 28,900 to 31,000 Lux. Until recently, lighting fixtures above 2000W had no LED replacement, which is why Canara has developed the LED Jeet Series fixtures, with a 1200W Jeet light giving the output of a traditional 6000W light, while the 1000W Jeet replaces a 4000W fixture, with 75 per cent power saving. They can be used as a soft and hard

light with 3200K or 5600K or 6000K colour temperature, suitable for both indoor (IP20) and outdoor (IP65) applications. The new Jagle Panel digital soft light is designed for studio use, with a tuneable colour temperature from 2700K to 12,000K and a RGBW microprocessor colour mixer for customised colour wash and millions of shades. It includes colour correction and multiple DMX modes, and has a TLCI score above 90.

In this way, Suggested TV provides the following key benefits: speed – getting to market quickly; low cost – reduced costs from a shared, ready-built solution; and reliability – running on an established software platform. This makes OTT VoD channels assessable to all, including niche content providers, businesses, brands and advertisers. Our clients only need to provide their content and branding to go to market. This formidable platform is an example of to how to do OTT. It powers OTT home cinema, OTT TV, OTT hospitality and OTT brand channels. 14.H17

theibcdaily OPINION OUTLINED

Satellite for broadcast still going strong Andrew Bond, sales and marketing director, ETL Systems IBC will once again be awash with the latest innovations for the broadcast industry, from 4K to 8K, IP contribution delivery, OTT services and virtual reality, among others. With all that innovation and the increasing consumer demand for high-quality content anywhere and anytime, it is very easy to assume that satellite for broadcast has had its day. However, what we are actually seeing is quite the opposite. As the need for reliable and high density services increases, along with an increased pressure for instant coverage of live events and breaking news, the importance of satellite communications is actually

increasing. This is mainly fuelled by the fact that quite simply satellite is one of the most efficient and reliable methods of getting coverage from anywhere. Satellite remains extremely important also for outside broadcast, where very often there may be little or no other connectivity and being able to quickly establish a satellite connection means the broadcaster can be live in very little time. At the same time, this pressure to provide high-resolution content everywhere is putting pressure on bandwidth for the satellite industry, which is having to adapt to accommodate that

demand. Increasing competition in the broadcast industry also means there is an increased need for better redundancy from satellite equipment, ensuring that whatever happens, the consumer will experience a continual feed, with no loss of quality. So, while there is an increasing opportunity for the satellite industry, it is more important than ever to ensure high quality. Satellite broadcasters are looking for ways to increase efficiency and decrease any signal loss throughout the chain. Every year, IBC offers a unique opportunity to gauge what is happening within the industry and this year’s show

is no exception. Satellite traditionally has a relatively slow pace of change. However over recent months and years it has had to step up to keep pace with the broadcast industry and there will be a great deal of satellite innovation on display in Hall 1 at IBC enabling broadcasters to make the most of the inherent benefits of satellite technology. As for ETL Systems, we are showcasing our own bit of innovation, of course. We have solutions designed to meet many of the challenges faced by satellite broadcasters, such as our Griffin Redundancy Switch, which helps broadcasters ensure continual feeds by providing much-needed modem

redundancy. We are also demonstrating our StingRay VSAT Fibre solution, which provides fibre connectivity between a VSAT antenna and a remote control room. It reduces signal loss and will have a huge impact on the quality of the feed, whether it is for outside broadcast, air traffic control, military operations, or any other number of VSAT applications. 1.A33

An expanding console range DiGiCo By Mark Hallinger An expanded range of live-to-air consoles suitable for all broadcast environments is on display. DiGiCo’s latest console, the SD12, is on show at IBC for the first time. It features 72 input channels, 36 aux/group busses, a 12x8 matrix and LR/LCR bus, all with full processing capability.

Multi-head control scores a bullseye Mark Roberts Motion Control By David Fox MRMC’s new Multi-Head Controller (MHC) software controls robotic heads at the touch of a screen. The user interface is based around skins – a controller designed to be relevant to a particular sport, environment or camera position. The touchscreen UI was initially devised to control robotic cameras for Sky

66 IBC D3 2017 v1JRJMcK.indd 1

Sports’ coverage of PDC Darts tournaments. An intuitive ‘dart board skin’ allowed an operator to touch part of the board to trigger a pre-set camera move, providing a level of speed, accuracy and smoothness vital to provide close-up shots of fast-moving sports, explained MRMC. MHC’s UI can be tailored to virtually any broadcast requirement, giving users instantly recognisable buttons, graphics or moves. There are skins for tennis and football,

for example, and a generic skin can be customised for a studio, a stadium or other live event. It works as a standalone application and with hardware controllers, such as pan bars, MRMC joystick or other USB devices, such as a games controller. As it is built on IP technology, the robotic heads can be controlled remotely (and operators can watch an IP video stream, so they don’t have to have a video link to the camera). The MHC server

The SD12 has a more compact body than the SD7B, yet still benefits from dual 15-inch touchscreens and is the first console in the SD Range with built-in recording interfaces. Highlighting the need for increased channel counts to handle growing multi-channel mixes and large stadium and event projects, DiGiCo is also showcasing its flagship SD7B. The broadcast-specific console

can dynamically control an unlimited number of robotic pods and takes input information, from multiple users

delivers advanced Super FPGA audio processing power that can handle over 250 input sources with an integrated 5.1 monitor matrix and multiple embedded touchscreens for control and monitoring. With additional fader units, multiple expansion options for network integration and 192kHz processing, the SD7B provides a future-proof console, said DiGiCo. 8.C62

IP input for all-in-one production Multicam Systems By David Fox

Using the IP-connected visual radio feature in Multicam Radio

An IP interface has been released for Multicam’s integrated video production systems. It will work with any currently available PTZ camera, allowing the systems to receive IP video streams directly from a local area network without any additional hardware or software. Moving to IP also reduces the size and cost of the central server, as all video streams and PTZ camera control are managed over the network without the need for special IT equipment.

Customers retain the flexibility to use IP or SDI for each input in mixed camera environments. The interface is particularly useful for visual radio applications using Multicam Radio, or in classrooms, corporate AV environments and theatres or auditoriums using Multicam Conf, Multicam E-Learning or Multicam Tracking to produce and stream lectures, presentations and events. Paul Stewart, director of business development, Multicam Systems, said: “The flexibility and freedom of using IP PTZ cameras means our customers can both enhance services and simplify operations.”

“On a corporate or educational campus or in a large broadcast facility with multiple studios, our customers can more easily distribute cameras across many locations, and bring more content onto the network,” he continued. “Since everything runs on standard network cable, we can significantly reduce the number of cables and associated clutter common in strictly SDI systems.” 12.E56

Intelligent content Hexaglobe By Anne Morris The IT solutions specialist is showcasing a content intelligence plug-in called Advanced Replay for its clipping solution, which can be integrated with broadcast workflows to enable media companies to turn their live content into a ‘transmedia’ experience. The plug-in features speech to text and face recognition technologies to automatically assign temporal metadata while ingesting live footage. It also lets media companies automate the creation of cue points and video clipping. As transmedia techniques gain in importance, content intelligence will have a significant impact on the industry, letting media companies reach their audiences with relevant content on all platforms faster than before. 14.L10

OUTLINED

RF spectrum: going down to the wire Karl Winkler, vice president of sales and service, Lectrosonics The most pressing issue worldwide for any manufacturer or user of wireless microphone and communication systems is the changes we are experiencing in RF spectrum availability. This transition has been going on for the past 10+ years and will continue well into the future. What it means is that we must all pay close attention to the direction our governments and regulatory bodies are taking, and how this will affect our day-to-day design, manufacture and use of these systems in the field. In the not too distant past, RF spectrum was relatively widely available and the regulations for its use were straightforward. Now, we are facing shrinking availability of spectrum and, at

the same time, the regulations are getting more difficult to meet and more complicated. All this is happening while we are experiencing, in many ways, the ‘golden age of wireless communications’ with amazing technology and performance that was unimaginable just a few decades ago. The demand for wireless systems used in live performance and for content creation has been steadily rising. It is now impossible to imagine a show, a corporate event, a TV studio, a film set or even a boardroom without the use of this technology. Along with developing new strategies and technologies, most wireless equipment manufacturers have been

working together in order to lobby the appropriate government agencies. This critical work must continue. In the US, the DTVAG (DTV Audio Group, part of the Sports Video Group), with Shure, Sennheiser, Lectrosonics, Audio-Technica and others, has been instrumental in plying the FCC with important information about use cases, technical hurdles and the realities of spectrum loss. In Europe, the APWPT (Association of Professional Wireless Production Technologies) has done a great job of co-ordinating manufacturer efforts towards working with the appropriate agencies. We must also remain vigilant against encroachment on

the spectrum from unwanted sources, such as Microsoft’s bid to “bring broadband data to rural areas of the US” which has been viewed by some as an attempt to get a free ride on unlicensed spectrum. Customers and delegates visiting the IBC show have the advantage of seeing all the new technology now available from a wide range of manufacturers. At the same time, company sales, support, technical personnel and officers are all available for discussions on the topic of spectrum or anything else important and relevant to the industry. Along these lines, Lectrosonics is showing the new M2 Duet digital wireless IEM monitor system, which sets

new standards for audio and RF performance, while occupying less spectrum and less rack space than any similar system. Along with this, we are demonstrating the latest Wireless Designer software and how it can be used to integrate IEM and wireless mic systems while taking local RF conditions into account. Another product on display is the PDR micro recorder with timecode. This is the ideal solution for situations where a wireless mic system might not be practical but broadcast-quality audio is required. 8.C73

Media managed for sports, enterprise and broadcast Primestream By Carolyn Giardina The latest features in Primestream’s Dynamic Media Management platform are aimed at managing sports, enterprise and broadcast workflows, from capture through delivery. For the first time in Europe, Primestream is highlighting new versions of its Fork and Xchange Suite, with an enhanced user experience, 4K/UHD workflow, VR/360 asset management, web-based metadata tagging,

an updated Adobe Premiere Pro extension panel and archival workflows for storing and restoring media from object-based storage providers such as Amazon, SwiftStack, IBM and Cloudian. Claudio Lisman, president and CEO, Primestream, said: “Our next generation of the Dynamic Media Management platform has been well received by the industry. We are always looking to give our users an easy path to 4K/UHD and VR/360 workflow while addressing the need for teams to collaborate on projects from

anywhere. We work hard to make sure our [technologies] are ‘simply powerful’.” New tools enable Primestream users and teams to create, share and collaborate on projects inside Xchange, or via the Xchange extension panel within Adobe Premiere Pro CC. Other advances to Xchange include a new module for creating playlists of media assets and exporting for delivery to VoD systems. Primestream is also showing Xchange Workspaces, a new module for building and

Scaleable and flexible ‘mission-critical’ system on display IPE

By Heather McLean Further improvements to IDS, IPE’s scalable, network-based display and control system, are being demonstrated in Hall 11. Consisting of dedicated software and hardware devices

that use a standard TCP/IP backbone, IDS can be scaled to suit any installation, claimed the company. It is already used globally by broadcasters to provide anything from simple timing and tally information to complex station-wide control functionality via networked displays and touchscreens.

IDS gives users the ability to integrate with, and harvest, technical information from across a network, aggregate that information, and then either display or control use of the information. The system’s four primary functions include clocks and

timing, information display, control and integration, and content management. Reuben Such, head of sales and support at IPE, said: “You could operate a broadcast facility without IDS, but it would be painful and expensive. It is fair to say that for

existing users, IDS is seen as a mission-critical workflow component.” IPE said it designed IDS to be fully scalable and flexible, to allow seamless integration with existing broadcast and media processing technologies. 11.D30

Visitors to the stand of international satellite operator Spacecom, operator of the AMOS satellite fleet, are being updated on the latest developments in the company’s business. Spacecom – whose satellites cover Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East – said it was moving forward with developments for two new satellites: AMOS-17 and AMOS-8. AMOS-17, scheduled to be launched in early 2019 to cover Africa and bring connectivity to Europe and the Middle East, recently passed its critical design review (CDR) at Boeing Satellite Systems International’s facility in California. AMOS-17, a

multi-band high-throughput satellite (HTS), will offer Ku band, C band and Ka band services. Its combination of broad regional beams and high throughput spot beams

will, according to Spacecom, maximise throughput and spectral efficiency. By providing Ku band and C band over Africa, and extensive Ka Band coverage over the Middle East, Europe and Africa, Spacecom explained it will be a catalyst for the company’s growth plans over the next decade. Spacecom has also released the RFP for AMOS-8. The satellite is scheduled to be launched in 2020. David Pollack, CEO and president, Spacecom, said: “With AMOS-17 and AMOS-8, Spacecom will continue its expansion in our important markets. Africa is a fast-growing area and keeping it closely connected to markets in Europe and the Middle East is an important element of our strategy.”

The long wheelbase Mercedes Vito has a roof-mounted VSAT IP connection (Ku band and Ka band), plus bonded cellular connectivity via a 3G/4G rooftop IP antenna, with WiFi, which can be used while in motion. A COFDM MPEG4 radio link with small mast has been fitted to two London-based versions of the vehicle. There is sufficient battery power to run for at least six hours of editing plus one hour of live contribution. The broadcaster wanted the unit to

be environmentally friendly, so thanks to smart load shedding by the Megahertz designers, only necessary equipment is powered up for each stage of the newsgathering process. The engine is only needed to top up the battery in extreme circumstances. As the vans are leased, the chassis of the vehicle could not be cut or drilled into. Equipment onboard includes: TAIT TB7100 communications and CTP talkback; NTT MVE5000 encoder; Blackmagic Smart Videohub; Blackmagic ATEM vision mixer; Cobham MP4 radio camera system; and Sony headphones. 12.F20

ST 2110 test set-up Video Clarity By Will Strauss A demo in Hall 2 is showing how manufacturers can apply a test system for the various flavours of SMPTE’s new media over IP networks standard, ST 2110. The set-up, on the Video Clarity stand, features IP network transport, IP network emulation, media flow analysis, and quality and performance testing for uncompressed video, audio and ancillary data. Macnica Technology is providing the IP transport technology. The company’s transmit and receive devices are designed to augment or replace SDI-based equipment when delivering multiple types of

high-quality, contributionlevel content. PacketStorm Communications is providing the IP network emulation which is simulating actual network and media over IP analysis conditions to measure flow characteristics. Video Clarity’s RTM real-time monitor is providing the source video playout and is testing the source against the network output. The RTM system plays uncompressed content while continuously measuring audio/video quality, as well as lip sync and loudness parameters. The ST 2110 suite of standards (-10, -20, -21, -30, and -40) is currently in the final draft stage. 2.C57

The semantic answer to data simplification OUTLINED

Jean-Pierre Evain, principal project manager, EBU Data has finally emerged from its dusty den and is now a top item on every broadcaster’s agenda. To say that data drives everything has almost become a truism. But why was its importance so badly underestimated over most of the past three decades? One reason was a lack of vision that let data drop to the bottom of priority lists for research and development. Then, data was associated with archives only; certainly an important topic, but not one that helped raise its profile. But the main issue was, and to a certain extent still is, a lack of understanding and know-how. There’s a lot of catching up to do now.

Data is for experts, or is it? Specific expertise in metadata doesn’t hurt, but we can minimise the learning curve to get developers and system integrators started. We can have a solution that adapts to an ever-growing list of data types and applications, such as descriptive and technical metadata, automatically extracted metadata that spans a wide range of features and can be used for deep learning, as well as big data, linked data and

other applications for Artificial Intelligence (AI). What if that same approach could easily cover the varying needs of a large panel of users? What if setting up a simple metadata framework took almost no time and required no prior advanced IT knowledge? What if generating a first data set could be done with minimal effort and skill in a format known to developers (JSON and JSON-LD)? What if a database acted like a simple repository that required minimal management and no schema, and had interfaces as simple as REST? What if custom data was no longer a burden? What if linking data from production silos was to become simple? What if the approach also offered a solution for dynamic web publishing? What if this would be your first step into AI? Is this a realistic proposition and can a technology solution really address all these challenges at once? Yes, it can: semantic technologies can do what traditional data techniques failed to do.

The semantic approach: simple and powerful Semantic data is based on web technology. It describes features and relationships

between uniquely identified “things” such as media resources, people, locations or events. The simple but powerful idea behind semantic modelling consists of using simple statements, so-called triples that contain a subject, a predicate and an object. Predicates are either data properties, which characterise things or resources, or object properties, which establish relationships between those things or resources. The semantic approach allows data models to be developed more quickly and intuitively, and in a flexible and scalable manner. New classes and properties can easily be added, linked, tested and optimised. This makes semantic modelling an ideal solution for aggregating data from separate data silos. Reasoning helps to make sense of your data, bringing together pieces of information that may have seemed unrelated at first glance. These operations are made possible by the SPARQL query language and the fact that semantic repositories are simple, but not dumb, buckets. Semantic data also natively enables linked data, which can be exploited to enrich in-house metadata sets with media resources online (or elsewhere).

This is one typical example of media-related AI applications that can greatly benefit from a semantic implementation, just as automatic metadata extraction and big data can. The EBUCore RDF, EBUSport and EBU CCDM (Class Conceptual Data Model) can be used to implement semantic data services, which can be adapted and extended at will. To show how powerful these approaches are, the EBU has developed several

demonstrations around sport, news and drama. Several EBU members have gone operational or are already actively implementing or investigating the use of semantic technologies, and several companies are proposing semantic solutions at IBC. In 2009, at the IBC Conference, I asked whether semantic technologies should be part of the broadcasting future. We now have the answer: yes!

David Schleifer, chief operating officer, Primestream Has IBC come at a good time for the electronic media industry? Why? Technology is moving at a fast pace, so IBC is always a good time to take the measure of what is available. Every technology change brings benefits and challenges. The shift in media production to digital file-based systems has sped up the process, multiplied the creative power of editing tools and enabled collaborative workflows that could never have been imagined with film or tape. They have also brought new challenges to the storage and

retrieval side of the equation. Those challenges are now being solved with object storage solutions that enable content libraries to scale unlimitedly.

What do you think are the key developments in, or threats to, your market sector at the current time? The cloud itself is pretty simple, but for broadcasters, leveraging it can be complex. It isn’t that difficult technically, but broadcast still straddles requirements that demand real-time, high-resolution,

quick turnaround solutions; and this is coupled with the need to connect geographically separate locations, reduce costs and extend access to assets for multi-format distribution.

Why should delegates visit your stand at IBC? For the first time in Europe, Primestream is demonstrating the next generation of its Dynamic Media Management platform. Built for ease of use, it has powerful features to manage the most complex sports, enterprise and broadcast workflows. New

versions of Primestream’s FORK and Xchange software are also being showcased loaded with an enhanced user experience, 4K/Ultra HD workflow, VR/360º asset

management, web-based metadata tagging, updated Adobe Premiere Pro extension panel and integrations with object-based storage providers. 7.D21

Mobile production added to the mix FOR-A By Will Strauss A new vision mixer designed specifically for mobile production or live event venues has been introduced at IBC2017. FOR-A’s HVS-490 HD/4K unit supports up to 40 inputs/18 outputs, 36 inputs/20 outputs or 32 inputs/22 outputs, including two-channel HDMI outputs.

Operating in 4K, it allows 10 inputs/six outputs, nine inputs/ six outputs or eight inputs/seven outputs. It also has 16 channels of 2.5 DVE and can be expanded to a maximum of 32 channels. Other switchers on FOR-A’s stand include the HVS-2000 and an updated version of the HVS-100, the HVS-100TB2. Both products feature built-in Thunderbolt technology that allows them to work with external

devices. Thunderbolt 2 I/O expansion cards enable singlecable transfer of four channels of HD video to a computer. The HVS-2000 switcher now offers 3 M/E capabilities, a 4K 3D DVE expansion card, and a 2SI software option that enables switching with less delay than SQD systems. A prototype of a new 3 M/E 12G-SDI compatible vision mixer is also on show.

The HVS-490 can handle up to 10 inputs and six outputs in 4K

Routing switchers on show include the 12G-SDI compatible MFR-

4000 and the MFR-3000 3G/ HD/SD/ASI unit. 2.A51

Transforming our business with hybrid cloud production Paul Glasgow, sales and marketing manager, Chris Steele, managing director, and Simon Fearn, product manager, Marquis Broadcast There’s been a big shift in the industry recently, from media producers talking about the cloud to actually starting to use it. Suddenly, Marquis is being called upon to help with proof-of-concepts that involve the cloud; whether private or public. Often this is around making the best of both cloud and traditional on-premise facilities, with hybrid workflows. Over the last 12 months, our strategy has been to enable and accelerate hybrid and pure play cloud production, to make possible new, more efficient workflows and transform productions. As of now, we have almost completed this transformation, with major products now supporting S3 and cloud compute when appropriate, with Project Parking and Workspace Backup also adding SwiftStack and Azure support.

Importantly, Marquis is 100 per cent agnostic in terms of cloud platform choice so its S3 cloud enablement programme has included an intensive testing and validation programme with Amazon, Dell EMC, Caringo, Cloudian, and IBM. Not only does this allow our customers to take advantage of the low cost, performance and scalability of cloud storage, they can do so with their preferred vendor. We can also support hybrid storage environments, providing the best choice of traditional storage alongside on-premise and in the cloud environments. What sets us apart is our large library of off-the-shelf legacy and contemporary industry integrations. This means that most customers will already have technology that we can easily support, enabling us to transform workflows quickly with the

lowest risk. Probably the most valuable transformation is to decouple people and operations from infrastructure and technical complexity. This enables easy load-balancing of people and resources across geographies and time zones, making production workflows more efficient and effective. A single editor might want to share a project as part of a global workflow via S3 Object Storage with Solo Parking. Or enterprise-class disaster recovery protection might be required, using Workspace Backup to backup Avid ISIS or NEXIS systems to highly resilient cloud storage, enabling ultra-fast recovery with cloud-enabled project recovery tools. Project Parking has become the industry gold standard for Avid storage management analytics and project portability. Adding cloud storage simply

transforms workflows, with the ability to archive or move Avid projects between systems and geographies simply and quickly. Thanks to Project Parking’s Avid ISIS/NEXIS analytics, no duplicate or orphaned media propagates into the cloud, further reducing cost and speed of operation. Medway, Marquis’ interoperability engine, has also become cloud-enabled, allowing the most advanced cloud/ground workflows with advanced UHD transcoding. Medway uses partial file retrieval of cloud assets together with cloud compute

ultra-advanced Avid project proxy relinking. This means anyone, anywhere could upload content to the cloud, then have Medway deliver proxies to an Avid production environment. It’s a very efficient system. Our strategy has been to transform itself and its technology, actively enabling and accelerating industry change. Uniquely, we offer a path of lowest risk and easy migration to cloud, from individual producer creators to the very largest of media enterprises. 7.G05

By Ian McMurray

Designed to allow post facilities to create, edit, mix and master high-quality Dolby Atmos content for Blu-ray or digital delivery, Dolby’s new Dolby Atmos Mastering Suite is being demonstrated at the HHB stand. HHB said demand for Dolby Atmos content looks poised to increase dramatically, driven by content distributors and the increasing uptake of Dolby Atmos-compatible home theatre systems and soundbars. Dolby has announced plans to introduce guidelines to give facilities certification for Home Entertainment Dolby Atmos mixing and mastering. Martin O’Donnell, director of sales, HHB, said: “From

Frame-accurate transport stream processing software is at the heart of an interactive demonstration on the Mediaware stand. According to the company, across the spectrum of television delivery, operators are struggling with the costs and complexity of achieving localisation and blackout for linear delivered television services. It claimed that within the broadcast industry, MPEG splicing is the most efficient means of deploying scalable content replacement and regionalised advertising insertion in transport stream broadcast environments. However operators are still

Considering the business benefits of IP John Smith, managing director, Media Links EMEA In the words of Bob Dylan: ‘for the times, they are a-changin’. The conversion to IP-centric facilities and transport systems is just one of the major changes broadcasters will need to facilitate over the next few years. However, until now, concerns about interoperability have been holding organisations back. It must be remembered: with change comes opportunity. Broadcasters need to understand the driver for implementing any new technology should be reduced costs or increased revenue or ideally both. The technology to implement a system and ensure it all works together is usually available – but at what cost, and what advantages will it supply?

One European IP demonstration project found that currently, it is around seven per cent more expensive to build a live IP production environment than a similar SDI plant. This is mainly due to the need for hybrid equipment. However, as IP becomes mainstream, these costs will reduce and the long-term benefits of IP will outweigh the additional implementation cost, reducing the total cost of ownership. The main benefit of IP-based systems is that they enable the transport of gigabit-speed data signals alongside multi-gigabit uncompressed video flows. This means live and pre-recorded video, audio plus data can be transported to any location, regardless of whether it’s down the hall or

across the world, dramatically increasing system flexibility. Content owners can maximise the value of their intellectual property and can sell it on: one US media organisation has anticipated re-transmission revenues increasing by 65 per cent within the next year. Other organisations are looking at how IP can help monetise programmes across different platforms. Live content can also take advantage of IP infrastructures. Viewers for live sports events offer advertisers and sponsors the chance to reach both captive audiences and to engage with niche ‘super fans’. Footage of events can also be re-packaged and sold onto other geographic regions.

There is no doubt live sports production is expensive. Shipping crew and equipment to remote venues is costly but this is where new workflows need to be adopted. Transporting content over IP offers the chance to reduce the number of some staff, including announcers, on site. Production can take place back at the studio and as a result increased volumes of live content could be produced, transmitted, re-packaged and sold on. It is feasible that the same team could cover multiple events shot in different locations, optimising expensive resources. At IBC2017, we are excited to introduce the MDP3020 IP media transport gateway. It is so small it fits into a standard briefcase and can

be carried in an overhead locker as hand luggage. This means connectivity can be achieved economically over long distances without the associated shipping costs of heavier equipment. One broadcaster indicated to us they anticipate offsetting the entire cost of the investment in the new equipment against the shipping costs of the kit they have been using – now that is a business benefit. 1.C31

Visualising content through metadata EBS New Media By Anne Morris Comprehensive image-led EPGs are becoming a vital tool for content suppliers in the age of ‘any time’ broadcasting, according to this metadata services company. Managing director Keith Bedford said the proliferation of new platforms has seen the demand for high-quality visual metadata flourish. “Anyone can watch anything, anywhere,” said Bedford. “In that kind of marketplace, there’s no excuse for not supplying exceptional visual content information. That’s why we’re proud to be launching our exciting new metadata solution – Pawa2 – here at IBC2017.” Pawa2 allows users to upload, manipulate and distribute images – including those with attached EXIF data – producing variations on the same source image for any platform needs. Overlays and watermarks can be output with images, and workflows can be automated to save time.

Bedford: “There’s no excuse for not supplying exceptional visual content information”

“People pick what they want to watch based on how it is sold to them visually,” added Bedford. “In a visual medium, this makes perfect sense. Be it live sports, high-end drama, or anything in between, customers expect premium image-led metadata to help them discover the best content.” Visitors to the EBS stand can get a hands-on demonstration of Pawa2, giving them the chance to test the versatility of the application’s image manipulation and distribution capabilities, said the company. 14.P26

To IP, or not to IP? That is the question Tracey J W Ford, chief sales and marketing officer, Norwia It is the industry’s most pressing question. As technology evolves to meet the needs of a completely new broadcast audience, the role of IP continues to divide opinion. Given that the transition from analogue to digital was completed with relative ease, it is puzzling to see a level of scepticism surrounding the jump from Serial Digital Interface (SDI) to IP. Does a lack of clarity over the benefits of IP prevent the industry from fully embracing the technology? Or is IP already at risk of becoming redundant at the dawn of a new broadcast age? In our view, IP has long-term benefits for all, whether you’re a novice junior or a seasoned broadcast engineer. There

is no question that we have the ability to transport an IP signal from point to point with great reliability and through cost-effective methods. The infiltration of file-based transfer took place many years ago and the benefits for workflow have been immense. Now, the aim is to have a truly flexible system that can enable scalability, self-healing redundancy and, ultimately, further cost savings. We are already seeing a healthy interest and uptake of IP, so the challenge is to bridge the divide between these early adopters and those who say they don’t see a future for IP in their sector. Although there is a surprisingly large amount of SDI equipment buried in today’s

core systems, it is possible to painlessly transition into the new IP world using the readily available conversion equipment. Although there is a huge temptation to postpone wholesale infrastructure changes until the very last minute, waiting for technology to become redundant is a risky business. It can take up to a decade for the dust to settle on new standards. Just like the early days of SDI, there are many disparate islands where varying and competing technologies exist, and the same will be apparent for those who integrate IP. The transformation of IP will define the transition from hardware environments to software layers of workflow

control, spanning across the creation and gathering of content, through to the chain of delivery – and everything in between. This transition, however, does not need to be a binary choice. The technology exists to employ a hybrid platform and effortlessly transition to IP at a pace that suits you. We are certain the industry must invest in a hybrid future now. The building blocks are in place to leverage the current benefits of SDI and IP and to make a system that can be 100 per cent functional today. In time, we will be able to peel back the SDI layer and reveal the exciting prospects of an all-IP world with all the benefits that its proponents believe in. For

now, however, it’s about choosing the right vendor who can provide an easily upgradable pathway to IP without the need for replacing the whole transport platform. With such a monumental technology shift fast approaching, it’s time for our industry to embrace hybrid networks for IP and SDI as they transit their core infrastructure in the decade to come. 10.C10

12G breathes new life into SDI Alan Wheable, communications manager, Omnitek These are challenging times for the broadcast industry with a choice of SDI or IP infrastructure, new programme production to support high dynamic range and wide colour gamut for both HD and 4K, and competition from OTT service providers. At NAB 2017 the SDI interface was alive and well and has found new life with the adoption of 12G as an interface on a range of new

products. There is demand for 12G-SDI for Ultra HD as a simple point-to-point connection, from one ‘black box’ to another, to simplify broadcast installation and maintenance. The desire of many to adopt the SMPTE 2110 video-over-IP standard has meant that manufacturers are now adding this interface to their products either in addition to SDI or instead of

it. Either way, the additional components and development required, increases the cost of these products. With regards to test and measurement equipment, this makes the choice of whether to invest in SDI or IP connectivity a difficult one. After some consideration, Omnitek has decided to simplify the choice with one box that does both at an affordable price. The Ultra platform, first launched in

2013, has always had the potential to support video-over-IP and now that SMPTE 2110 is being widely adopted, this functionality has been added too. At IBC2017, Omnitek is demonstrating its new Ultra TQ which supports the analysis of video over SDI or an IP link as an SMPTE 2110 or SMPTE 2022-6 enabled waveform rasteriser for broadcast applications.

The Ultra TQ is a fully equipped waveform rasteriser for the broadcast market. It supports the analysis and generation of all SD, HD and 3G-SDI formats with the option of analysing video, audio and ancillary data from an IP link. 10.A24

Future-proof Going with FM MPX codec the Flow GatesAir

By Mark Hallinger

The Intraplex IP Link MPXp is having its European debut, leveraging the strengths of previous IP Link codecs, including GatesAir’s Dynamic Stream Splicing technology. This can mitigate IP packet loss and eliminate off-air time, and takes advantage of forward error correction and a trio of network interfaces for optimal stream reliability. It also empowers broadcasters with more signal transport options from a single

box at historically low bitrates, said GatesAir. The initial April release of the MPXp significantly cut bandwidth consumption for uncompressed AES-192 digital composite signal transport. The latest release further reduces those bitrates from 1.8Mbps to 1.65Mbps. This bandwidth efficiency opens more headroom for increased packet protection, as well as additional audio and data services, according to GatesAir. The company claimed that Intraplex IP Link MPXp is the first FM MPX IP codec to

support – separately or together – AES-192 digital and analogue composite signals over a secure and reliable digital IP path from a single codec. The dual-domain capability allows the broadcaster to install a newer audio processor supporting AES-192 and have it interoperate with an exciter supporting only analogue composite signal interfaces. This not only provides a transitional path for a future digital exciter upgrade, but also enhances signal quality by keeping it in the digital domain across the IP path. 8.B30

Quales is now part of EditShare’s Flow platform, available as part of an integrated system or standalone. Attendees can take a look at how it can QC content at any point across the production workflow.

Flow also includes modules such as Flow Automation, which automates repetitive or complex tasks such as transcoding and file delivery; AirFlow, for web-based review and approval; and Flow Story, for remote editing and collaboration. James Richings, managing director, EditShare, said: “Filmmakers, content producers, broadcasters, just about anyone creating content for a living, spends an exorbitant amount of time and money creating their assets. The sole purpose of Flow is to help creative professionals find and use their valuable assets, and ultimately create better content.” Richings added: “We believe that there is inherent value in checking your content at every stage of the production and post-production process. The problem is that it is usually time-consuming and expensive. But with Quales, we’re changing that.”

4K and IP in Europe: what is the state of play? OUTLINED

Lorenzo Zanni, research analyst, IABM IP and 4K/UHD are two emerging technologies at early stages of adoption in Europe. While the introduction of IP represents a technical and cultural revolution for broadcast infrastructures, 4K/UHD can be considered as a traditional ‘forklift’ upgrade for end-users’ operations. The adoption of IP technologies within broadcast infrastructures brings clear benefits to end-users’ operations, both in terms of efficiency and agility. The take-up of IP technology has been slower than expected due partly to end users’ reluctance to disrupt their existing SDI operations and, more significantly, uncertainty over IP standards. With all the major players in the interoperability arena backing the new SMPTE standard, ST 2110 – which is now in final drafting phase – adoption of IP technology for real-time signal flows is set to rise. In Europe, early adopters of IP technology have been large broadcasters and outside broadcast service providers.

The main driver behind the decision to move from SDI to IP is achieving increased operational efficiencies. IP technology, which is sometimes deployed in virtualised broadcast environments, enables end users to access new efficiency-boosting activities such as remote production. A recent example is a new IP studio at Canal+, which uses equipment from Grass Valley and Cisco installed by system integrator VIDELIO – Media. The same suppliers were also involved in the installation of IP technology for Arena Television’s new IP-based fleet – Arena is an outside broadcast service provider based in the UK. In both cases, the partnership between Grass Valley and Cisco married the capabilities of a large IT vendor with the focused approach of a traditional broadcast technology supplier, incentivising adoption for the end user. In the Canal+ example, the inclusion of Grass Valley’s equipment was key to

the customer, which already used it for SDI operations. Another recent example of a complex broadcast infrastructure being built with IP technology is the new studio in RTL headquarters in Luxembourg. This studio will use a mix of equipment from various media technology suppliers including SAM, Arista, Juniper, Grass Valley, Lawo and Harmonic. The project entails the deployment of a fully ST 2022-6-compliant facility with a clear upgrade path to ST 2110. In Canal+ and Arena’s examples, IP technology was deployed to enable remote production and support 4K/UHD live production. According to the IABM EndUser Survey, IP and hybrid SDI-IP deployments are the most preferred option for end users for enabling UHD content production, including 4K production. IP installations to handle UHD are preferred over SDI alternatives such as 12G-SDI or Quad 3G-SDI. Despite the benefit of backwards compatibility of SDI installations, end users are reluctant to invest in 12G (or Quad 3G) SDI as they

risk getting locked into an expensive technology that could be obsolete when IP becomes mainstream. At the same time, the difficult process of IP standardisation has contributed to slowing its adoption. Broadcasters are then faced with an investment dilemma which makes them more likely not to invest in 4K/UHD in the short term and adopt a ‘wait and see’ approach. Of course, 4K/UHD is not just about upgrading the broadcast infrastructure’s data rate but also about increasing storage requirements and (possibly) diminishing the number of channels delivered to viewers – which is likely to translate to lower revenues in a commercial broadcast model. Also, end users prefer HEVC for 4K/ UHD delivery – as highlighted by the IABM End-User Survey data – although use of HEVC in their organisations is very low compared to more established compression standards such as MPEG-4. These factors have all contributed to slow the adoption of 4K/UHD not only in Europe but also in North America. Despite the rise in

4K/UHD TV set adoption by consumers in Europe, the number of available 4K/UHD channels is still low. Today, 4K/ UHD remains a niche market for pay-TV operators such as BT in the UK and Sky in both the UK and Germany. Commercial and public broadcasters have not gone beyond broadcast trials in the higher resolution format – and/or occasional broadcasts for special live events. This is due to the low revenue potential of 4K/UHD in commercial broadcasting as opposed to pay-TV. In the changing broadcast industry in Europe, 4K/UHD represents less of a priority compared to efficiency-boosting technologies that guarantee a clearer return on investment. IP is undoubtedly the future for broadcast infrastructures. A visit to the IP Showcase at IBC2017, where more than 40 technology vendors are demonstrating real-time IP signal flow interoperability based on SMPTE ST 2110, will confirm that the path is now clear for broadcasters and media companies to embrace the flexibility and efficiency that IP can bring to their operations.

Mac running Unity Server. It provides multi-user Talk and Listen on multiple independent channels, as well as up to 64 independent programme audio feeds. The client apps are free for iOS or Android devices and Mac or Windows computers, which then become networked wireless intercom stations. Users can work in either 4-wire (broadcast) or 2-wire (user to user) mode with a large Push-To-Talk button that can be momentary or latched. Unity also displays camera On-Air Tally and integrates with hard-wired

communication systems like Clear-Com or RTS. Any number of clients can be included in a Unity Server system with the number of simultaneous connections being limited by the number of server-user licences purchased. For smartphone users, there are a range of suitable headsets, including versions from Dave Clark optimised for Unity. Headsets can be cabled or connected using Bluetooth or the station can be used in hands-free speaker mode.

Streaming: an evolution or a revolution? Scott Murray, vice president of marketing, Telestream Today, broadcasters are pursuing a young and increasingly influential audience that has radically different media consumption preferences. This millennial audience is characterised by a significant appetite for streamed content – both live and on-demand. This demand for streamed content places an entirely new set of technical and operational requirements on broadcasters. But also, more than any technological development in the past 50 years, this change offers fantastic commercial opportunities to progressive broadcasters. These opportunities include revenue generation through ad placement customised to the viewer, brand engagement and loyalty building. The key issue is how to efficiently and cost

effectively incorporate streaming within your mainstream broadcast operations. At Telestream, we believe the answer lies in the ecosystem in which your streaming activities operate. Should streaming be a discrete activity from your main broadcast output, or can it be part of your main production and distribution workflows? We believe content distributors who are serious about their streaming strategy should operate under a single integrated workflow where all material is originated, prepared and distributed. This helps create major operational efficiencies, eliminating duplication of efforts and harnessing the benefits of workflow automation. This is analogous to the SD-to-HD

transition where production companies needed to simultaneously produce the two formats without duplicating equipment or staff. So does this require a revolution where an enterprise-wide system is rolled out in one move? Or can it be introduced in a more organic fashion, where trial streams can be activated and feedback used to influence the development of your streaming network as it evolves? Telestream is firmly within the evolutionary camp. We have been working in the live streaming market since 2004 and we have over 50,000 active licence holders for our various streaming platforms. Most recently, we have developed extensions to our Vantage Media Processing

Platform which enable streaming to be incorporated within a broadcaster’s mainstream activities. So how do you guarantee quality of experience in a streaming environment? How do broadcasters and service providers guarantee the quality of their media experience right up to the point of consumption? Streaming is unlike terrestrial, cable or satellite broadcasts since there are many more points in the content distribution chain where issues can arise and media quality can be negatively affected. The past 12 months have seen Telestream make two strategic acquisitions. IneoQuest is the global leader in video quality monitoring and analytics solutions for content

distribution across managed and unmanaged networks, while Vidchecker is recognised as a leading automated QC solution within file-based production workflows. This year, on our IBC stand we are, for the first time, exhibiting all three companies together. We are showcasing how all three strategic elements combine to create a streaming experience that is high-value, scalable across a wide range of enterprise operations and capable of creating clear ROI with minimal risk.

Also on demonstration is the new Tracker & Reporting and Taskflow Designer options. The Cubix Cognitive Services module provides a range of features including

speech-to-text transcription, subtitle validation, language detection, image recognition and real-time content moderation. Instead of requiring operators to identify a language by listening to an audio track, Cognitive Services provides a weighted list of expected languages against which it tests each audio track. The module can then update the metadata within Cubix and tag the file before this passes through

the configured workflow. Image recognition allows labels to be detected within graphic content. Example labels are furniture, people, facial attributes and emotions, animals and buildings. Timelines offers Cubix users fast interaction with metadata, audio tracks, automated quality-control reports and edit decision lists. Clients can also generate their own metadata tracks for deep logging or to make timelinebased use of the cognitive

Any or all 27 Cubix modules can be deployed on-site, in the cloud or as a hybrid of the two

services. The new Editorial Post Production features for Cubix allow automated import, management and ingest of the media with associated

metadata into editorial systems such as those from Avid, including direct ingest to Interplay. 8.B38

#IBCShow

Yamaha’s flagship console now incorporates up to 64 channels of Dugan automixing

OUTLINED

Dan Dugan Sound Design By Mark Hallinger Automatic microphone mixing algorithms developed in co-operation with Dan Dugan Sound Design have been incorporated in the Yamaha Rivage PM10 console. Yamaha’s flagship console now incorporates up to 64 channels of Dugan Speech System automixing. This microphone mixing algorithm

helps professional audio engineers manage multiple live microphones in situations with unpredictable dialogue. The Dugan algorithm provides smooth gain control over microphones, instantaneously bringing up the gain of microphones as talkers begin speaking while reducing gain of other microphones. Transitions are seamless, with no changes in overall system gain or background noise. The algorithm also effectively reduces feedback and comb

HDR and 4K IP on the road Videlio

By Heather McLean Here at IBC, Videlio is presenting its latest HDR and 4K IP designs based on the new Cisco 9508 switches. Malcolm Robinson, head of operations, Videlio, explained: “This new cell-based technology leverages Jericho line cards and eliminates

blocking issues that we have had to work around with previous designs. “This innovative design has just been implemented for the new Arena OB12 presentation vehicle, which is to be used in conjunction with the OB-X truck,” continued Robinson. The two vehicles are the first full IP interconnected solution designed in Europe.” 10.A16

transition to ‘all-IP’ and is built to address the need for head-end and backend unification and simplicity. The company claimed it allowed service providers to focus on operational efficiency, business profitability and customer satisfaction, while having the choice to deploy the platform on virtualised infrastructure on-premise or in the cloud.

Also on show are direct-to-TV solutions for pay-TV providers (TVkey, CONNECT for TV, Wi-Fi CAM and CAST Dongle) that Nagra says make signing up for pay-TV services as easy as signing up for OTT. At the same time, the company claimed, this would lower subscriber acquisition costs and reach a wider audience for pay-TV content and services by leveraging retail and online TV sales as a pay-TV sales channel.

The broadcast antenna company’s established Prostar slot antenna is available in broadband for combined analogue and digital applications. This can eliminate the need for multiple antennas, and provides a single, compact solution that conserves tower space and minimises tower loading.

Features include operation in the broadband 100-120MHz range, with product in excess of 200MHz available. Horizontal, elliptical and circular polarisation can be used. Its rugged construction lets it withstand harsh environments whether in full or partial radome option. It is constructed of marine brass, copper, aluminium and virgin Teflon. 8.B96

OPINION Broadcast is still to realise the full benefits of IP OUTLINED

Mark Davies, director of products and technology, TSL Products With some early adopters now having success with IP, and full IP production chains successfully running from camera to transmission, the uncertainty about the technology and standards is dissipating. However, while a lot of broadcast professionals are getting excited about the benefits IP can offer, we are not at the final destination yet where we can realise its full benefits; and there are still large sections of the broadcast production community that will not see these benefits for some time. They are considering producing 4K material using quad-link 3G-SDI, or single link 12G-SDI and, in the short term, there are many who will remain with the familiar SDI production chain as this meets their business drivers.

Hybrid solutions will also continue to play an important role during this transition. Full IP adoption will be driven by cost and the business agility that it offers, as well as a continued clarification of standards. Audio is already well ahead of video in the IP domain as it can be successfully deployed through 1Gb ports rather than 10Gb ones. This has increased the speed of adoption of IP-based audio production. As such, the use of IP-based audio production is now commonplace in the radio community, using standards such as Dante, Ravenna and AES-67. Outside of the ongoing IP discussion, there is also considerable momentum behind high dynamic range (HDR), which has clear and

visible benefits; however, it is not as far down the standards clarification road as IP at this stage. This is not just a matter for technology companies either, as television set manufacturers also have a vested interest in standardising the delivery formats. Then there is the marketing activity needed to convince their customers of the benefits of HDR – thus there are more stakeholders at play. We also believe that operations will continue to look to technologies such as automation and advanced control systems in order to improve efficiencies and do more with less. From our perspective, this is where advanced control systems such as TallyMan can help, adding reliable control to value

chains within the broadcast infrastructure. As the reliance on control automation becomes more widespread, operations that are seen as complex today will be accomplished using the single push of a button on a virtual control panel. As broadcasters deal with these myriad changes and challenges, they need three key things: good, impartial advice from manufacturers and system integrators in order to make the right decisions, both for the short term and the long term; manufacturers that understand the value in creating ongoing partnerships with their customers, not just ‘box shifters’ who are only interested in the next sale; and manufacturers that understand that their

products may only be a part of the workflow, and that are willing to collaborate with each other to help broadcasters achieve a future-proof, streamlined and efficient workflow. With these elements in place, the industry is indeed in an interesting and exciting place. 10.B41

Teaming up for IP console control RTW By Mark Hallinger The company has reinforced its partnership with fellow Hall 8 exhibitor Lawo through the integration of its TM9 TouchMonitor into Lawo’s fully IP-based mc296 Grand Production Console. The TM9 is seamlessly integrated into the surface of the console, which debuted earlier this year. The TouchMonitor has been customised according to Lawo’s requirements for

integration in this new flagship console that supports all relevant standards, such as SMPTE 2110, AES67, Ravenna and Dante. The TM9 is equipped with a high-grade, nine-inch touchscreen and an easy-to-use GUI, controllable by a finger or a mouse. Instruments can be scaled, randomly positioned and combined in various configurations for optimised use of available screen space. Setup changes can easily be made because of the monitor’s context-sensitive on-screen help feature that supports the user.

In addition to the integrated RTW TM9, the mc296 offers features such as the network-based IP-Share gain compensation, enhanced multi-user operation capabilities and its mix-assist systems, enabling sound engineers to concentrate on the overall balance and sound quality of the production. The console also features LiveView video thumbnails in addition to standard channel labelling via channel numbers, individual text labels and static pictures of icons. 8.D89

TiVo: ‘Voice search is key to making the UX simple again’ OUTLINED

By Ann-Marie Corvin Consumers have been given access to multiple content platforms but not the tools to discover what’s on them – and the answer to making things simple again is voice, according to that original disrupter of digital TV, TiVo. Speaking in a Friday session on the consumer experience, Charles Dawes, senior director of marketing at TiVo claimed that its natural language voice controls, which are currently being integrated into Sky Q’s premium service, would radically simplify the user experience.

“It can take more than 10 clicks to find the search. Voice search is a quick and simple way to get to content more easily,” he said. TiVo’s new solution claims to enable natural language voice searches for finding digital content across linear TV and VoD. Viewers can find their desired programme by pressing and holding the voice button on the side of a touch remote and simply saying what they’re looking for. Dawes said that the technology is based around the conversational way that people really speak and takes into account pauses in

requests such as “Find me an action comedy… one with Tom Hanks.” Viewers can also use their voices to search for films from a specific director or actor and even through using a selection of well-known movie quotes such as “Show me the money!” Fellow panellist Liz Ross, CEO of Freeview Australia, also shared her insight into research which was gathered ahead of launching Freeview Plus in her home territory. “People don’t like it when you only provide a grid text-based guide for browsing or relying on the use of coloured buttons. You need to be able to make

BeIN Sports makes Atmos pledge Dolby Laboratories By Will Strauss BeIN Sports is planning to make Dolby Atmos available regularly on its sports coverage after successfully trialling the next generation audio technology, The IBC Daily has learned. The Qatar-based broadcast network completed a live public Dolby Atmos test during the UEFA Champions League final in June, bringing the object-based immersive sound experience to the Middle East and Africa for the first time.

Although user penetration was small, with only a few Dolby Atmos speaker systems installed in the region, BeIN said it collected positive feedback from subscribers. Atmos has also been well received internally at BeIN, prompting the network to make a commitment to its use. Israel Esteban, executive director of technology, BeIN Media Group, told The IBC Daily: “We thought [the Champions League Final] was a great experience. You felt like you were in the venue and part of the action. We have to look at our roadmap but we have rights to all the major

events. In every discussion we have, in every technical project we do, we now have Atmos as a requirement.” Esteban said BeIN will also look to introduce Atmos to its entertainment event coverage. Pankaj Kedia, managing director, emerging markets, Dolby Laboratories, added: “What we have done with this trial is made sure that everything works from end-to-end and shown that it is a compelling experience. As more content becomes available, there will be a lot of opportunities for us to work together.” 2.A11

The panel discussed the importance of making search easy for consumers

content search and discovery easy and integrate it into all browsing screens.” Chris McGrath, senior VP of data and analytics at Discovery Communications, also advised broadcasters to think carefully about how they programme recommendation engines. “Think about the

bias that you are putting in the algorithm if you like shows like Breaking Bad, then you usually get recommended lots more shows with anti-heroes in them – there’s not a whole lot of variety and it can result in audience fatigue which may flatten out the success of a show,” he warned.

Gearing up for Full HD in Dubai Gearhouse Broadcast By Heather Mclean The systems integration team at Gearhouse Broadcast recently signed a deal with Live Point Art Production in Dubai to build and provide a Full HD studio, the broadcaster’s first, in the company’s Dubai offices. The new HD studio includes a plethora of technology from SAM. The fast-turnaround project has been spread over just 13 weeks between signing the contract and implementing the final, ready to use studio on site. The production studio will be complete within the

More and better pixels Grass Valley By David Fox Ultra HD is more than just resolution, it also includes HDR, high frame rate and IP, according to Grass Valley. Its president, Marco Lopez, wants to “allow our customers to create better content with more and better quality pixels”, but in as flexible a way as possible, such as adopting HDR in an HD environment, perhaps for news, rather than

93 IBC D3 2017 v2 Final.indd 1

the full Ultra HD suite. This is something several of its European customers are keen on adopting. He believes that HDR “gives great benefit for little cost”, as it doesn’t require the processing power, storage and bandwidth of Ultra HD to deliver HDR to viewers. While Ultra HD is critical for some broadcasters, “for others it’s not the quantity of pixels but getting better pixels, such as wider dynamic range”, added Tim Thraves, Grass Valley’s

VP marketing. “We want to let them choose how they want to proceed. We’re offering flexibility for our customers.” Other than its value ranges, almost all of its products now support end-to-end Ultra HD HDR. “It is not just about the camera supporting HDR, but in taking the native 10-bit HDR workflow across the product range,” said Lopez. “We want to go HDR as close to the source as possible”, which is why its new XCU Universe XF base station (for its LDX 86

Tim Thraves seen through the new LDX 86N UHD/HDR camera

cameras) can automatically create the appropriate PQ or HLG versions of HDR. For live HDR production, it can

also automatically produce a second SDR signal using a live downmapper. 1.D11

Panel calls for action on cyber security

theibcdaily IMF open for review at IBC

By Ann-Marie Corvin

By George Jarrett

The Digital Production Partnership has unveiled a new cyber security programme, which enables UK broadcasters and their suppliers to self-assess against a number of key security criteria. The DPP Committed to Security programme is a broadcast-facing cyber security checklist developed with the North American Broadcasters Association that contains 20 requirements to allow suppliers to document their progress to broadcasters in the field of security. Announced during Friday’s cyber security panel ‘Safety in Numbers’, DPP MD Mark Harrison said that the time had come to take talks on cyber security and turn it into actions. “Being open and collaborative is our best means of defence when it comes to security,” he said. The 10 launch members who signed up to the programme include TVT, The Farm, Qvest, Arquiva and Dropbox. TVT’s Technology VP Peter Elvidge, who spoke on the panel, said that as a service provider his

IBC offers anyone interested in automated multi-versioning a chance to review the status of IMF for TV and online. It is a metadata rich ecosystem, and not to be seen as a product replacement. The DPP’s Caroline Ewerton is staging demos on the Prime Focus booth in Hall 7 (7.B12), and for the EBU Andy Quested of the BBC and EBU programme manager Hans Hoffmann are the focal point. “IMF is a fascinating technology. It addresses the need of the market to have an application around that allows you to create all the derivatives you need from a single master. It simplifies workflows and satisfies the need for extremely high quality,” said Hoffmann. “The codec runs very high bandwidth.” The user groups have all focused on an app that makes IMF fit for broadcast work, so one big debate has been around codec selection.

The DPP to “build all the security into one standard” with new programme

company was rarely in a position to dictate security requirements and sometimes had to use outdated procedures which had been imposed on him by clients. “Having a checklist that aims to build all the security into one standard helps us demonstrate to clients that they can trust us,” he said. Fellow panel member Craig Dwyer, a senior director at Avid, which is in the process of doing the DPP checklist, said that security problems often arose when their customers wrongly assume that it is just broadcast technology vendors that are responsible for workflow security. “They think that if they are using Microsoft or Avid products

that they don’t have to do anything,” said Dwyer. “The DPP’s standards will allow you to look at the full chain and say ‘if you are in our supply chain then these are some best practices.’” Senior programme manager at Microsoft Azure Joel Sloss also welcomed the DPP’s programme and pointed out that when the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is passed it will assume that all businesses will experience a data breach and the production industry will need to radically rethink their processes. “It means that if we as an industry don’t put best practice in place then it will be imposed on us,” he warned.

Sensing the IP change Cisco

Lightweight 4K zoom given sporting chance Fujifilm Europe

By Ian McMurray By David Fox Over the past four years, says Dave Ward, the company’s CTO of engineering and chief architect, Cisco has been at IBC articulating its vision of a broadcast industry leveraging the many and substantial benefits of an IP-based network infrastructure using COTS (commercial off-theshelf) products. “This year, we sense a real change, with many organisations anxious to find out how they can transition their workflows to take advantage of the opportunities IP brings,” he said. “They’re looking to buy real solutions.” Inevitably, there are still concerns about interoperability – in response to which, Ward notes, Cisco has set up labs

95 IBC D3 2017 v3 Final.indd 1

Ward: “The industry is looking to buy real IP solutions”

featuring equipment from many of the industry’s highest profile vendors to prove that it can be done. “There are ways in which broadcast is no different from other types of networking – and ways in which, for now, it’s different,” continued Ward. “We have, for example, learned a ton about video, and we’ve had to respond to the need for accuracy and precision in media operations.”

Sensing the industry’s growing desire to become fully IP-proficient, Cisco is also establishing the Cisco Certified Broadcast Engineer programme with the aim of equipping engineers and technicians with the skills needed to migrate video production to IP. Cisco will introduce two-day foundational training and fiveday technical deep-dive training in spring 2018. 1.A71

“We are talking about a codec which is open, standardised and widely used. It must maintain quality so we are not talking news here, merely about high quality productions,” said Hoffmann. “The time is just right. IMF can have a significant advantage in simplifying workflows. “You need to give time to the users to identify the opportunities a new technology brings, and maybe we need to modify it to match certain applications,” he added. “We need to bring it into the mainstream. It is all about automation. One of the technologies behind it is the tool that allows you to generate on a click a certain version and a certain language from a master.” A meeting of interested parties was held at the EBU stand yesterday, and on Monday (14:00-18:00) the HPA user group will meet to discuss usage, training and what’s missing in the spec, with an eye on a final spec launch just prior to NAB.

The new Fujinon UA24x7.8BERD is claimed to be “the world’s smallest and most lightweight portable broadcast zoom lens for 4K video production”. The 24x zoom weighs 1.98kg, is only 220.5mm long, and covers focal lengths from 7.8mm to 187mm. It expands the Fujinon 4K/ Ultra HD lens line-up to eight models, including two recently introduced compact, lightweight

portable zoom lenses (the UA18x5.5 and UA14x4.5). All three are designed for use with broadcast cameras using 2/3-inch sensors. It is particularly aimed at live sport production or news coverage that requires cameras to be easily mobile. According to Fujifilm, the recent introduction of compact and lightweight Ultra HD camcorders has increased the need for similarly efficient lenses. It is scheduled to ship in January. 12.B20

Sony By David Fox By Neal Romanek Sony has unveiled a new action-cam: the DSC-RX0. The ultra-compact camera, which sports a 1.0-type stacked 14.8MP Exmore RS CMOPS image sensor, is waterproof up to 10m, shockproof up to 2m and crushproof up to 200kg. The RX0 has a maximum shutter speed of 1/32000 second and can shoot as low as 16fps or up to 960fps NTSC or 1000fps PAL. It can be linked to other RX0s in a variety of configurations, and using Sony’s wireless radio commander, the FA-WRC1M, up to 15 of the cameras can be triggered remotely – ideal for bullet time and time slice recording effects. Sony is currently developing a solution for simultaneous connection and control of many more RX0 cameras, as well as a dedicated

camera control box, both of which will be available in January 2018. The RX0 is being launched with a number of accessories, including a cage, an underwater housing rated at 100m depth, a cable protector, spare lens protector and rechargeable battery pack. The €850 price point seems just low enough to put the RX0 in GoPro territory, particularly for high-end applications.

Sony Imaging’s Kaetsu Jo explained that one group ready to embrace the RX0 was VR filmmakers, and the Sony stand showed off a VR camera cage fitted with multiple RX0s. “We have much better image quality than competitor cameras,” claimed Jo. “With a one-inch sensor, it’s certainly much better than GoPro. And it’s tougher.” 13.A10

High-density fibre transport platform unleashed MultiDyne By Heather McLean The growing need for higher signal density, format flexibility and operational versatility in a fibre transport frame is being addressed by MultiDyne here at IBC, with the launch of the VF-9000, a compact 1RU solution available in 18- and 36-channel versions. The higher signal density is useful for customers working in ENG, sports production and other applications

with high channel counts, claimed MultiDyne. Users can support up to 36 video signal conversions across HD, 3Gbps and 12G from one unit, with automatic configuration of all inputs and outputs based on several parameters. Frank Jachetta, president at MultiDyne, told The Daily: “The reason this is cool is because you don’t have to buy a specific configuration; you can create it, not only the signal types but how you can combine them via multiplexing. By the nature of these different

flavour cards you can build a configuration and you can convert between transmitter or receiver simply by replacing the SFP optical modulator.” Jachetta continued: “The price per circuit is cost effective, but the major cost saving is that you don’t need different kit for different jobs.” Users can mix any combination of optical and copper connections to achieve the desired balance of inputs and outputs. The VF-9000 automatically recognises the SFP module connections, and transitions to the proper configuration upon coming online. A robust multiplexer feature effortlessly combines 18 signals over one single-mode fibre for efficient, high-density signal transport. VF-9000 systems can easily mix in audio, Ethernet, reference and other data signals based on specifications at the time of order, with plans to enable hot-swappable functionality for any card and SFP in future releases. 11.D40

Infinity AoIP goes beyond talkback OUTLINED

Telos Alliance TV Solutions Group By Mark Hallinger The introduction of the new Infinity IP Intercom promises to disrupt a critical segment of the broadcast industry, said Telos at a Friday press event. Promising a quantum leap in scalability, ease of integration, efficiency and total cost of ownership, the company said the Infinity is the first in a series

of products that represent a complete reimagining of broadcast communications. “Telos Infinity IP Intercom unleashes the full potential of a distributed IP audio infrastructure,” said Martin Dyster, VP of business development, TV Solutions Group. “You can access any networked audio endpoint through our Telos Infinity Dashboard software and make it available wherever you need it – internally or on-

air. And, because it natively supports Livewire+AES67, it seamlessly connects with our own AoIP products as well as those from other supporting manufacturers.” It replaces matrix technology with a distributed IP network that provides superior functionality in a simplified, more elegant form, said Telos. Being matrix-free allows plug-and-play networked hardware and software devices to be added to the system

Suggested TV readying for next stage Easel TV By Anne Morris The ‘all-in-one’ OTT provider Easel TV said it would welcome investors to take it to the next stage of its development following the recent completion of its horizontal OTT platform, Suggested TV. CEO Joe Foster said it has taken the company around four to six years of development work to perfect the softwareas-a-service (SaaS) product. On its blog, Easel TV said total development costs amounted to about £4 million. It is now at a point where it is able to provide a fully developed, multi-tenant, licenced OTT service that

provides content owners with an off-the-shelf platform to create their own OTT video service. “Building a horizontal solution is not easy,” said Foster, “but it was an important part of the company’s ambition to make OTT an obvious and easy choice for its customers, which include Curzon Home Cinema and hayu.” Phil Mordecai, director of Curzon Home Cinema, said Suggested TV allows his company to get on with running our business. “We focus on the editorial mix, the marketing and the analysis of our performance without having to worry about the technology,” he said. Easel TV has also been able to move into different sectors such as hotels: in 2015 it launched a TV

service called Airtime for Airwave, which supplies, installs and integrates digital hotel televisions, signage and audiovisual equipment. It also built a linear brand channel for mobile phone manufacturer HTC, initially to support the launch of a new product. “It opens up the market for other brands as well,” added Foster, noting that he had one on board and a further two in discussions. 14.H17

The Berlin Philharmonic orchestra will be available in Ultra HD and HDR from next month, using new video facilities equipped by Panasonic, to capture weekly performances in the highest possible audio and video quality. It has bought eight AK-UB300 box cameras (operated by one operator), and a UC3000 studio camera, which it only uses when it needs a camera operator to cover a soloist, or when there hasn’t been enough rehearsal time to programme the remote system. It has a Panasonic AV-HS6000 switcher, but will replace this with an HS7000series model next year. “Recording classical music in a concert hall is actually the

worst thing, because you don’t have light, and you don’t want to disturb the orchestra or the audience, so you have to be invisible and silent,” said Robert Zimmermann, MD, Berlin Phil Media. The fan, pan/tilt head and camera had to make absolutely no noise, and the models they picked (including Vinten FHR-35 remote heads) “was the only combination we could find that offered this”. 11.C45

Cyber security force assembles Qvest Media By Will Strauss

Exalux CEO Bruno Lavolee demonstrates the new Stixx Action FX

as part of a planned ad-hoc change without ever worrying about exceeding the number of available ports on a matrix. It also easily integrates into existing analogue, AES, SDI, and MADI systems using Telos Alliance xNode baseband-to-IP interfaces and other AES67 partner devices providing a means by which customers wishing to retain their existing audio infrastructure can still use the system.

Following a spate of cyber attacks on media companies, Qvest Media has launched a dedicated IT security division and is using IBC to discuss how it can help protect media data in the digital age. The systems architect and ICT integration firm is focusing on strategies and solutions for

assessing, detecting, monitoring, addressing, preventing and managing cyber risks. This work is being channelled through a newly inaugurated business unit, called QM Cyber Security, that is providing consultancy, integration and managed services to broadcasters and other media companies. Working with SecurView, QM Cyber Security will handle data centre and cloud security, malware analysis and protection, mobile

device management and access policy management as well as content security. A Security Operation Centre has been established in Germany for the new unit, which will offer 24/7 monitoring services as well as incident recovery services. Also at IBC, Qvest Media has announced the acquisition of German company HMS, a developer of hardware and software for broadcast automation. 3.B40
