spend time rewiring, which is a huge
advantage. Plus, the Karrera with
K-Frame gives us a great return on
investment because it's an extremely
powerful switcher," he adds.
"Grass Valley has a strong
and thriving business in the OB
market, which is evidenced by
our partnerships with important
companies such as Token Creek
Mobile Productions. We're so
pleased they continue to use our
products," says Stephen Stubelt,
Grass Valley Vice President of
Sales, North America. "The unique
combination of the LDX Premiére
cameras and XCU base stations
means that Token Creek can
minimise operational costs and
streamline reconfiguration for any
type of production, helping to grow
its business in the long run."
BT Media and Broadcast, the
specialist digital media services arm
of BT, and Nevion have signed an
agreement to provide bundled media
network solutions to broadcasters
throughout the world.
The agreement will see the
companies integrate BT's Global
Media Network (GMN) service with
Nevion's video compression and
transport equipment to provide
combined, cutting-edge solutions
to global broadcasters.
Mark Wilson-Dunn, Global Vice
President of BT Media and Broadcast
notes: "By combining our Global
Media Network with Nevion's marketleading equipment and expertise,
we can offer a unique proposition

for broadcasters and indeed any
businesses that need professional
quality media, transported in realtime between locations.
"We have already proven the value
of these joint services for some of
the leading names in broadcasting,
so it makes sense to work together
even more closely in the future and
work on ways to increase that value."
Nevion CEO Geir Bryn-Jensen
adds: "We are obviously delighted
with this agreement. We have a
relationship with BT that goes
back a long way. We even have
a technical centre of excellence
on BT's Adastral Park campus
in Ipswich, UK, which means we
can work very closely together. So
formalising the relationship made
a lot of sense, given the clear
benefits BT and Nevion can offer
jointly to our customers and our
proven track record of delivering
solutions together."
Blackmagic Design reports that
Tokyo based post-production house
Q-TEC has installed a Blackmagic
Design Universal Videohub 288 in
their Tokyo headquarters. Q-TEC
has also installed Blackmagic Design
Videohub Smart Controls and a
variety of Mini Converters into their
facility as part of an improved postproduction infrastructure.
"We have five edit suites mainly
used for TV commercials and VFX
work. Four out of five suites support
stereoscopic 3D editing, so there
is a mix of Dual Link 1.5G-SDI
and 3G-SDI equipment. We also

The iPad interface for the Blackmagic
Design Universal Videohub

use several VTR decks. Because
of that, we have to handle many
cables which are very cumbersome
if we use a patch bay," explains
Kazuhiro Aoki, Manager of the Edit
Group at Q-TEC.
"The efficiency of our work has
improved since we started using
Universal Videohub because we
don't have to leave the suites to
change patching anymore. Also, if
new staff come, they need to learn
all the locations of the patches, but
now with the Videohub and Smart
Controls, all they have to do is
press buttons."
Finally, Kramer Electronics
has become the 150th Dante
manufacturer to license Audinate's
Dante networking solution. "We see
2014 to be an important year for
Kramer's expansion of delivering
reliable and value−oriented audio
solutions," states Ezra Ozer, VP
Marketing of Kramer. "We evaluated
other audio over IP networking
technologies and it was obvious with
Audinate, we did not need to place

Tokyo-based Q-TEC has opted for
a Blackmagic Design Universal
Videohub 288

a bet, as it is the most requested
audio networking technology
in the market."
"This is another significant
milestone for Audinate as a company.
Audinate's focus on innovation, high
interoperability, easy integration, and
unsurpassed performance, have all
directly influenced our rapid business
growth and we look forward to
continuing this trend" comments Lee
Ellison, CEO of Audinate. "We share
Kramer's deep philosophical roots
in providing unparalleled customer
support and outstanding solutions.
We expect the market to rapidly
embrace Kramer's Dante networked
enabled products."

Fischer To Demo Broadcast Connectors At IBC2014
F

ischer Connectors, celebrating
its 60th anniversary this year,
is a worldwide leader in circular
push-pull connectors and cable
assembly solutions, specialising
in broadcast, audio and video
applications. Its latest innovations
are used by television producers
and movie studios worldwide.
At IBC2014, Fischer Connectors
will showcase its three premium
broadcast connecting solutions.
The company, founded by the
Swiss engineer Walter Werner
Fischer in 1954, has established

Fischer's Broadcast Connectors

a long-term partnership between
the company and the broadcast
industry over the last 60 years.
Known for their reliability, precision
and resistance, the ruggedness
of Fischer Connectors' products
fully suit the needs of any
broadcast application.
One of the novelties of Fischer
Connectors at IBC is the brandnew Fischer FiberOptic Series
Hybrid connector, a rugged solution
with two fibre channels and two
electrical contacts in one small high
performance connector.
The number of fibre optic
connecting solutions in the
television and movie
industry
is
increasing
drastically and
the new Fischer
FiberOptic Series
hybrid connector is
perfectly suitable for broadcast
applications.
The unique aspect of the brand
new Fischer FiberOptic Series hybrid

connector is that both fibre and
electrical contacts are now offered in
a single rugged connecting solution,
allowing both power and data to be
transmitted flawlessly through one
connector. Broadcast application
designers can take advantage of this
key feature, as they only need one
hybrid connector instead of one fibre
optic and one electrical connector.
This saves space, money, design
and installation time, and offers
premium optical performance in
all environments, indoor or outdoor.
The Fischer FiberOptic Series
with two or four channels is
an interconnecting solution
specially designed for premium
optical performance in extreme
environments. This technology
offers the essential quality and
stability needed for an optical link
combined with extreme robustness,
easy mating and easy cleaning.
Last year, the Fischer FiberOptic
Series received a 'Best of IBC'
award in the category production
and infrastructure.

The Fischer 1051 HD Triax Pro+
connectors link HD video cameras
and related equipment dependably.
To ensure flawless transmission,
professionals are eager for
increased user-friendliness of their
video equipment, on top of a highly
reliable signal performance.
Long transmission distance is also
an important parameter when events
take place in large-scale venues.
The Fischer 1051 HD Triax Pro+
increases transmission distance
by more than 30%. This integrated
cable and connector solution are
designed for indoor and outdoor
applications.
Fischer Connectors' primary
design and manufacturing
facilities are located in Saint-Prex,
Switzerland, with subsidiaries and
distributors located worldwide.
Fischer Connectors recently
announced its new partnership
with Canford as sole broadcast
distributor for the Fischer FiberOptic
Series in the United Kingdom.
