Full Speed Ahead For Alfacam
By Sven Marinus, CEO Alfacam
Through intensive research, international contacts and over 25 years of experience, Alfacam is continuing to be at the forefront of technical evolutions. With one of the largest OB fleets in Europe and indeed worldwide, Alfacam is proving to be one of the key players in the international broadcasting scene. This spring brings an enormous production challenge for Alfacam. The company have now signed a yearly contract to produce a series of internationally renowned operas - such as ‘La Vera Constanza’, ‘La Traviata’ and ‘L’equivoco stravagante’. Alfacam France is continuing to produce the final games of the French first football league and has signed a brand new contract with the Top 14 rugby competition to produce their matches. In Germany, Alfacam are currently in full preparation for the production of the Eurosong Contest in Azerbaijan. In May, the WTCC races will also be covered by Alfacam worldwide with races in Italy (Monza), Morocco (Marrakech), Brazil (Curitiba), USA (Infineon Raceway), Japan (Suzuka), and China (Shanghai) with new HD onboard technology in the racing cars. In April, following a successful production of the UFC in Rio, Alfacam will cover the Ultimate Fighting Championship in Stockholm (Sweden) before covering the European Championship Swimming in Hungary and the European Championship Gymnastics for Men in Montpellier. Alfacam is also hosting the Euro2012 championship PolandUkraine. Next to several qualifying games during the tournament in Lviv and Kiev, they will produce the final in the NSK Olimpiejskystadium

in Kiev on the first of July. July will mark the start of an intense summer for the international Alfacam teams. The company will be providing the technical services for the mobile studio during the ‘Tour de France’. Meanwhile sister company EuroLinX also has a full agenda. Following the marathon in Vienna and several triathlons, the company is living up to its reputation as a leader in wireless broadcasting by hosting the Tour of Turkey. The ten-day cycling event will demand complex preparation and full flexibility. Finally, the summer games in London stand ‘top of the bill’. After success in Salt Lake City, Athens, Beijing, Torino and Vancouver, the Alfacam OB vans will once again be a fixture at the 27th edition of the Summer Games in London. ■

Autoscript Launches EPIC
At NAB Autoscript launched the Enhanced Prompting Imaging Centre (EPIC - patent pending), an all-in-one prompter display and on-air talent monitor that vastly simplifies studio equipment and enables easier location prompting, while retaining the advanced features and functions of the Autoscript LED prompter series. The EPIC effectively allows a single piece of equipment to do the work of two, with an onair talent screen built into the prompter display that simply flips down to offer the perfect viewing angle. This simplified camera setup makes installation easier and more practical, particularly when on-air talent monitors are required on location. Cable management is also easier, requiring just one power cable for the prompter and on-air monitor, while ClockPlus and TallyPlus are powered via the 12 VDC from the prompter; the video signal also loops through the prompter. This leads to a reduction in power consumption with the EPIC able to operate on just 60 watts by using the latest advances is switch mode PSUs. In addition the reduced weight of the overall system reduces counterbalance weight needs, which also broadens the compatibility range for support equipment including robotics. The combined elements of the prompter and on-air monitor also provide economies of scale and reduction of cost compared to purchasing two separate systems. Brian Larter, Managing Director, Autoscript, said: “Autoscript has led the way with major developments in prompting for both the scripting software systems and oncamera hardware systems, with industry firsts including prompters compatible with 16:9 camera applications, the increased clarity and brightness of LED prompter displays, and HD-SDI compatible prompters. The EPIC prompter s y s t e m represents the next evolutionary step to making prompting simpler, both in the studio and in the field.” Larter added: “We provide a vital connection between the audience and the talent. For organisations that recognise the value of this connection, there is no compromise. This understanding of our customer’s need to maintain that audience connection remains the driving force of our continuing innovation.” ■
