InterBEE 2013 A Vital Showcase
InterBEE has been held for almost 50 years, here are some of the key new products to be introduced...

By David Kirk
Contributing Editor

T

he 49th annual InterBEE
exhibition will be held at the
Makuhari Messe convention
centre, Tokyo, from November 13
through 15.
Given the large number of video
and audio equipment manufacturers
based in Japan, InterBEE has
long been a useful showcase
for innovation, even allowing for
the short time gap between this
event and IBC.

A working Astro Design AH-4800
8K camera is expected to appear at
InterBEE

Astro Design's AH-4800 8K
camera head, displayed as a
concept model at NAB 2013 in
April, is expected to appear as a
working version at InterBEE. The
camera head is a relatively compact
unit measuring 125 x 125 x 150
millimetres (width x height x length)
weighing 2kg. It uses a 2.5 inch 33
megapixel single-element CMOS
sensor developed by NHK. The
AH-4800 has an active resolution
of 7680 x 4320 pixels and outputs
on 12 channels of parallel optical
fibre. Also on show will be the new
DF-3512 electronic viewfinder which
has a full 1920 x 1080 LCOS (liquid
crystal on silicon) display.
Blackmagic Design will exhibit a
new version of its ATEM Production
Studio 4K Ultra HD live-production
switcher. The ATEM 1 M/E
Production Studio 4K includes ten
independent 6G-SDI inputs each
with frame sync, built-in digital video
effects with zoom, scale and rotate,
four upstream chromakeyers, three
independent auxiliary outputs with
front panel control and storage for
video clips and still-frame graphics.

Eyeheight's LE-3G multi-rate SDSDI/HD-SDI video gamut legaliser

Eyeheight, represented by its
Japanese distributor MTC, will
show the LE-3G multi-rate SDSDI/HD-SDI video gamut legaliser.
This enables video legalisation
parameters to be corrected
automatically. Single-touch
presets allow fast configuration to
0 IRE pedestal (Japan), EBU-R103
(Europe) or 7.5 IRE pedestal (US).
Features include an out-of-gamutindicate output with a visual severity
monitor output to show the operator
where on the picture, any correction
of the signal is being carried out.
A timecode-referenced output
log is generated for viewing via a
connected PC. Up to six LE-3G
modules can be accommodated in
a single rack unit.
FOR-A will demonstrate its new
HVS-XT HD/SD compact vision
mixer series which is designed for
live events, news studios, outside
broadcast vehicles and corporate
production. The HVS-XT100
comprises a separate main unit
and control panel. Model HVSXT110 is an integrated single-unit
design. The mixers are based on the
existing HVS-300, including mixed
HD/SD input, frame synchronisation,
multi-viewer, resizing, multiple digital
video effects, transition effects and
chromakey. Standard features also
include two freely assignable keyers
and two DSK channels that can be
applied to auxiliary outputs. The
HVS-XT has a built-in web server
enabling adjustment of settings from
a PC or tablet. The clip memory
within the mixer's two still stores
supports complex moves such as
character generation wipe, and has
extended capacity as standard. The
mixer stores up to 100 events and
users can customise the control
panel. The HVS-XT100 has eight
HD/SD-SDI inputs, four outputs
and one HDMI output, expandable
to 14 inputs and six outputs, or 12
inputs and eight outputs which can
be freely assigned. The HVS-XT110
is a compact version designed for
use in small outside broadcast vans
and flypacks. This unit has 12 HD/
SD-SDI inputs and six outputs plus
one assignable HDMI.
Fostex will exhibit the AR101, a
lightweight audio interface for use
with the Apple iPhone 4, iPhone 4S,
iPhone 5, or with a DSLR camera
or PC. Previewed at InterBEE

The Makuhari Messe Convention Centre, Tokyo, Japan

2012 and now in production, it
has stereo microphone inputs
(two electrostatic microphones are
supplied), line inputs, line outputs
and a headphone output. The AR101
incorporates a rotary encoder for
level and pan adjustment. More
detailed controls are available on
a dedicated iOS APP.
Grass Valley will demonstrate
the latest version of its K-Frame
modular video processor, offering
increased user flexibility for both
Kayenne and Karrera switchers.
K-Frame upgrades include internal
video clip storage and playback,
greater macro flexibility, and a mix/
effects multi-previewer function for
live productions.

Studer's OnAir range of consoles
benefit from V6 software enhancements

Harman will demonstrate V6
software for the Studer OnAir range
of consoles, including VoiceMix
automatic microphone mixing.
Already implemented on the Studer
Vista range of consoles, VoiceMix
can be used to manage unscripted
multi-microphone live events such
as talk shows and discussion panels
which are prone to inter-microphone
spill and background noise.
VoiceMix removes the need for an
operator to adjust faders manually.
It increases gain for microphones
that are actually being used and
reduces gain for all others. VoiceMix
is described as a gain-sharing rather
than a gating system; the lack of

need to set thresholds is claimed
to simplify setup. Priority can be
assigned to the main presenter who,
if necessary, can talk over guests or
contestants. Other enhancements
in V6 software include increased
integration of Axia Livewire Audio
Over IP networking, and A-Link
support for the OnAir 3000 series.
Ikegami will promote the new
HDK-97ARRI broadcast-style
production camera which uses
ARRI's Super 35mm CMOS sensor.
The camera is claimed to provide
cinematic qualities such as natural
colour rendering and wide dynamic
range. It can be connected to a
control room via up to two kilometres
of SMPTE hybrid fibre/copper
camera cable. Using Ikegami's
latest 3G signal processor, the
HDK-97ARRI provides live control
of all grey-scale, chroma and detail
functions. A new 3G transmission
system transports video from
camera head to camera control
unit plus return video in HD, two
channels of prompter video in SD,
and (when using the CCU-970M)
one channel of prompter video in HD.
Leader will show its LV5490
waveform monitor which is designed
to provide all the facilities needed for
video measurement, from standard
definition up to 4K. It is equipped
