Innovation At Inter BEE 2012
Jim Evans examines some of the audio elements making their Far East bow at the 48th Inter BEE exhibition held in Japan…
This year’s Inter BEE was held for three days under the sponsorship of JEITA (Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association), and supported by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation) and the National Association of Commercial Broadcasters in Japan (JBA). Inter BEE 2012 marked the 48th exhibition, which is well-known among users of broadcasting equipment and devices as the largest domestic exhibition of its kind for audio, video and communications professionals. An Inter BEE spokesman said: “Each year at Inter BEE broadcasting companies are joined by equipment manufacturers and companies offering other broadcasting-related services, and the exhibition is utilised not merely as a forum for providing and receiving information about the latest equipment, but also as an opportunity to engage in dialogue about standards and rules relating to broadcasting and visual technologies and to make notifications about operational matters. Inter BEE is also expected to play a role as an

information hub for the various aspects of the media business. “The previous Inter BEE 2011 saw the largest-ever number of overseas exhibitors, from 35 other countries and regions. In total there were 800 companies (466 from overseas) exhibiting in 1,329 booths. A total of 30,752 visitors attended the exhibition. Inter BEE is now recognised as an international media exhibition that plays an important role in global business schemes, standing alongside similar events such as NAB Show in the United States, IBC in Europe, and BIRTV in China. “Additionally, Inter BEE is accredited as an official event of the Japan International Contents Festival (CoFesta 2011), which is sponsored by the Ministry of Economy, Trade

and Industry, and also holds the Asia Contents Forum in collaboration with TBS DigiCon6 as a regular event. In this way we are continuing to evolve as an exhibition that attracts the attention of the contents industry both in Japan and Asia.” Ardis Te c h n o l o g i e s , manufacturer of DDP, Ethernet based SAN systems with built in metadata controller, AVFS, presented their new line of microDDPs: the microDDP160, microDDP300 and microDDP600. Console specialist Solid State Logic demonstrated compatibility with Riedel RockNet and MediorNet systems. Collaborative development between Riedel and SSL has delivered functionality, which aid customers worldwide in specifying and configuring integrated systems that deploy technology from two of the most respected names in broadcast. SSL C100 HDS and C10 HD digital broadcast consoles can now connect to Riedel RockNet low latency audio distribution network and MediorNet fibre-optic transport, routing and conversion network. Via Riedel’s RN334.MD MADI interface, SSL consoles can then remotely control mic Gain, Phantom Power and Pad settings for Riedel RN series audio interfaces connected anywhere on a RockNet network. In addition SSL’s own MORSE Stagebox and CONTINUED ON PAGE 29 Alpha-Link I/O units can also be connected via MADI t o R i e d e l ’s MediorNet networks with full remote c o n t r o l capability maintained for SSL consoles. Redundancy is a key feature for both SSL and Riedel customers and Studer VistaMix automatic microphone mixing

the new implementation ensures that Riedel and SSL remote I/O continue to behave as expected within SSL’s redundancy topology. “SSL and Riedel share a s i g n i f i c a n t c u s to m e r b a s e across the world, and these developments make it possible for our users to employ our consoles and distribution technology in truly integrated systems,” said Niall Feldman, Director of New Products for SSL. “Riedel is a highly respected, professional and innovative manufacturer, and there is considerable synergy between our technologies, so it is a great pleasure to continue to bring the relationship between our two companies ever closer together.” Studer promoted a software upgrade for its range of Vista digital mixing consoles. Studer VistaMix automatic microphone mixing removes the need for an operator to manually adjust all the faders all the time, leaving the microphones of talking participants open, while closing the microphones of silent participants in order to reduce spill and background noise. Without this facility, the reaction time of a human operator will often result in audible fade-ins of people who start talking rather unexpectedly. Also, changes in fader positions can quickly lead to disturbing changes of the total ambience/noise level in the mix. VistaMix offers the solution by mimicking the action of a human operator: increasing gain for ‘talking’ mics and reducing gain for all others, but doing it very quickly and keeping
