en-US Broadcast Equipment Blog | 3D Broadcast Sales Equipment reviews, news and tips Mon, 20 Oct 2014 08:05:38 +0000 http://fishpig.co.uk/magento/wordpress-integration/?v= http://www.3dbroadcastsales.com/blog/ Advances in Live Broadcast Equipment: Announcing the New XT2000 Video Switcher HVS XT2000 Video SwitcherWhen it comes to broadcast equipment, the XT2000 video switcher helps a studio engineer to select between a variety of video sources and mix them together, creating special effects. This is the simplistic explanation, but this video switcher has some ground breaking features using technology that has never been used in the past by operators. There are several features that are exclusive and can elevate a professional allowing them to do an incredible job on their production job. MELite is one such exclusive feature which enables the traditional AUX bus to transform, making it functional so it will mix, cut and wipe.

Running on a V6 XT2K engine, the XT2000 video switcher is ready for HD, SD and Full HD which equates to 4K production. Mixers generate a variety of transitions from dissolves to pattern wipes and perform key operations to generate colour signals. Vision mixers have video connections and use SDI. With live television and video tape recording, video servers help to enable linear video editing with the right broadcast equipment.

The XT2000 video switcher has been said to have production capabilities that make it comparable to a fully functional 6 M/E switcher that has a 3 M/E/ panel. An additional M/E panel can be added to include another operator, including the power of a second switcher in a separate location, all connected to a V6 XT2K engine. This switcher is cost effective, adding the necessary versatility to allow operators to have increased power and to display independently in on stage monitor display control.

This video switcher has ONStage which is a technology that has been recently developed and is designed for staging events where a variety of images are magnified and displayed (conference, church) each with their own transition. Operators are able to mix, DVE, key and wipe all changes with a complete preview control that is connected to the transition area within the lever area. Operators can take a lot more artistic control and have more power when they are working with video switching using the XT2000 video switcher.

Additional flexibility is provided through FLEXaKey which is another feature exclusive to the XT2000 video switcher. This allows an operator to personalise their production requirements by allowing them to add and move a key and DVE layers to their traditional M/E resources. It also allows operators to multiply layers, selecting them and graphics as they are needed.

This new switcher device has a four channel media player that can store clips and images and back them up in a memory. There is a panel snap shot recall and a sequence and macro memory recall. This is simply called “Midas Touch” and is a system that allows the operator to easily configure changes and have full control of the system. The switcher has synchronizers for frames on every input and includes a frame grab to capture images through any input. SD to HD migration can be re-sized with the included re-sizer. There are 12 keyers in the system and there are 12 floating 2.5 D and 3D DVE effects. Multi-viewers can be user configured with the XT2000 video switcher. The control panel is easy to operate and highly functional and features crystal clear OLED source name displays. The device has many colour LED buttons and features a touch screen menu with remote options.

Sony Nex-VG900 Pro: Full Frame Camcorder NEX-VG900 Sony CamcorderThe Sony Nex-VG900 Pro is a Sony camcorder with a difference. It has a wide range of innovative new features that make this Sony camcorder a market leader and a great buy for consumers starting to edge into professional shooting and professionals looking for a good event camera. Often described as the first prosumer camcorder with full-frame capabilities, this is truly a groundbreaking innovation.

The Nex-VG900 Pro has added a pro audio microphone kit to the Nex-VG900 Sony Camcorder, boosting the captured sound quality when using this Sony camcorder. It can record sound in high quality stereo and 5.1 surround sound without the need for additional separate microphones and audio equipment, producing a sound track that sounds amazing on a home cinema system.

Canon EOS 6D – the new canon entry level full frame DSLR professional camera eos_6dThe Canon EOS 6D, along with the Nikon D600, represent a new market segment in professional cameras, the mid range full frame DSLRs. While the Canon EOS 6D has some great features, one of the most impactful of these may be its price, coming in at nearly £1000 cheaper than the Canon EOS 5D mark III.

Comparing it to it’s bigger, more expensive, brother gives an interesting picture. The Canon EOS 6D has 20.2m megapixels, while the Canon EOS 5D mark III has 22.3m megapixels, both of them with a full frame CMOS sensor. They have the same ISO range (100-25600 standard, 50-102800 expanded) but the Canon EOS 6D has 11 autofocus points, while the Canon EOS 5D mark III has a massive 61!

The viewfinder on the Canon EOS 6D is slightly substandard, giving only 97% visibility while the Canon EOS 5D mark III has full 100% visibility, and the Canon EOS 6D has only a single SD card slot for recording while the Canon EOS 5D mark III can accept compact flash as well.

Where the Canon EOS 6D really shines however is the weight, it’s a full 180 grams lighter than the Canon EOS 5D mark III, and also its ability to capture images in low light conditions – The Canon EOS 6D can capture images down to -3 EV, a full stop dimmer than the Canon EOS 5D mark III and equivalent to a night lit by a full moon.

Wifi and GPS have been integrated as standard into the Canon EOS 6D, while they are available as an additional extra on the Canon EOS 5D mark III, making the substantively lower price tag of the Canon EOS 6D even more attractive to the budget conscious photographer looking for a first professional camera. This gives the option of controlling the camera remotely via a smartphone, a feature which many photographers will find a useful additional to their arsenal of tools.

The silent shutter mode implemented in the Canon EOS 5D mark III has been replicated in the Canon EOS 6D for quieter, more discreet shooting, but there are other features of the Canon EOS 5D mark III which have been left off such as the ability to record data files in RAW format, including jpeg only. There’s no touchscreen which is more unusual as the Canon EOS 650D included this, and the Canon EOS 6D is essentially a full frame version of the Canon EOS 650D. It also misses out on on-chip phase detection to aid in autofocus while in live view or movie mode.

The Canon EOS 6D is a great professional camera, and a good addition to the Canon EOS range. It’s price makes it an attractive entry point into the full frame camera market, while retaining the familiarity of handling and use with the other professional cameras in the Canon EOS range.

TV Logic HD Monitors - Broadcast Equipment With Options TV Logic MonitorFor those who need reliable broadcast equipment, TVLogic has been putting out reliable monitors for many years now. Those who have had experiences with TVLogic monitors find that they really like them as they are a reliable workhorse. The weight of these monitors is quite light and this makes them easier to mount onto the camera.

TVLogic Monitors – Set Up Options

There are several TVLogic monitors to choose from, three are commonly used today. The monitor is cost-effective and provides great picture performance. The high resolution on the screen makes detail in images a lot more noticeable. Focus checking is simplified, especially when one is shooting in 4K.

There is a feature called the 058W which is similar to previous models with the 056W. There are 3G HDSDI and HDMI inputs. The HDMI out is useful if you want to set up another monitor feed or if you only have a SDI or a single HDMI output.

The Vectorscope and Waveform displays provide exposure control with a side luma zone which provides for over range error checking and a false colour. The focus assist helps to provide critical focus and a zoom mode where the picture can be checked for focus. The overscan/underscan modes provide the normal aspect ratio markers with safe area overlays. For those DSLR shooters, the monitors allow one to take their output from it and scale the images so that they fill the screen.

Size Choices

Currently available is the 55”, the 46” and the 42”. These are all great choices; it is a matter of need as well as personal taste. These monitors have three assignable function buttons. Instead of going into a menu to assign functions that are used often, one just needs to press and hold the button down.

Once a few seconds have passed, there is a drop down menu that appears containing all available options which allows the user to scroll through to the function they want using a scroll wheel, then pressing it to select that function. This makes it simple to change assigned functions as needed.

The next noticeable difference between monitor sizes is the size of the image. The smaller monitors do not provide as sharp and clear an image because of the size of the screen that displays the image. The colours of all sizes of monitor are accurate.

If you wish you can makes use of the calibration utility that is available on all models and sizes of monitor. The display settings once calibrated can be saved as an LUT within the monitor. The LUT capabilities can prove extremely useful for those shooting with Log.

What is the Weight Range?

Another serious difference between the 55”, 46” and 42” monitors is the weight of the monitor. The 55” is 57.5 kgs, the 46” is 43.0 kgs and the 42” is 30.2 kgs. The weight of these monitors can make a significant difference, depending upon the set up that you use with your broadcast equipment.

One can also playback recent recordings quickly with the built in speaker for audio monitoring and the headphone jack. If it is preferable to monitor audio levels visually, on screen audio meters are also available. The monitors are designed with a magnesium alloy housing making them attractive and reliable. The button layout makes it simple for those who need a good broadcast equipment set up to access what is needed to get the work done easily.

This handheld camcorder & DSLR equipment bundle is a real find! Panasonic DMC-GH4 LUMIX G Camera Bundled with the Panasonic DMW-YAGHE 4K Interface UnitOne of our latest exciting broadcast equipment bundles is the combined package of the Panasonic DMC-GH4 LUMIX G Camera and the Panasonic DMW-YAGHE 4K Interface Unit.

It features the GH4's new live MOS Sensory and Venue Engine, which combined reduces noise while increasing resolution and innovating colour reproduction. The introduction of progressive DFD technology has increased the speed of Contrast AF. The Panasonic DMC-GH4 LUMIX G was the world's first DSLM camera to record 4K videos and truly meet the demands of the Broadcast and DSLR equipment market. Combined with the professional interface unit from Panasonic, this bundle is capable of significantly powerful video transmission and advanced real time video output in Full HD via SDI and audio input via XLR.

This bundle is capable of satisfying the needs of both photographers and cinematographers alike. It's innovatively designed 16.05 mega pixel Digital Live MOS Sensor for the GH4 delivers both sensitivity, response and controls rolling shutter effect, even when using the electronic shutter function. By far its most impressive feature is the Venus Engine image processor, which delivers high-speed signal processing, as a result of its new quad-core CPU, capably capturing 4K video.

The GH4 features superior noise reduction systems and allows shooting at maximum ISO 25,600. That is not all. The picture quality is outstanding, with sensitivity, gradation performance, resolution and colour reproduction; all of which have been dramatically improved in Panasonic's latest hand held camcorder. It captures a phenomenal 12 frames per second, delivering high speed burst shooting, capable of capturing even the fastest moving of subjects.

The hand held camcorder properties' include advanced high-precision, high-speed dual Organic Light-Emitting Diode displays or OLEDs of 2,359K-dot LVF (Live View Finder) and 1,036K-dot rear monitor. Combined this achieves a high speed response with a minimum time lag while heightening the resolution. Most impressively, the OLED for the LVF contained within the GH4 boasts 10,000:1 high contrast for superior colour reproduction. Indeed, the high-precision Contrast AF system in the hand held camera benefits from Panasonic's combination of DFD (Depth from Defocus) technology, which condenses the time to focus achieving ultra high speed AF and enhanced operability due to the added feature of Face/Eye Detection AF or 49-point AF with Custom Multi AF mode.

This is a hardy handheld camcorder, tough enough to withstand the rigours of heavy field use. The main structure of the GH4 consists of a magnesium alloy full die cast front and rear frame. It is water tight, with its splash and dust-proof construction, owing to every joint, dial and button being sealed. The shutter unit has been specifically designed to allow a maximum 1/8000 shutter release and is capable of even more durability for approximately 200,000 actuations.

DSLR equipment by Panasonic is certainly leading the field. The new optional Interface Unit DMW-YAGH has been designed expressively for use with cameras like the GH4. When the two are combined the hand held camera and the Interface Unit enables significantly more powerful video transmissions and complies with Full HD, offering four parallel outputs, which can be used for 4K output.
