NAB New York 2017
Retrospect
Contributing Editor David Kirk looks
back at some of the highlights
on show at NAB New York...

N

AB New York this year coincided
with the 143rd AES Convention
under the same Javits Center roof,
giving visitors the opportunity to
attend both events in one trip.
The only negative comment I heard
from NAB Show exhibitors was about
the slow processing of new arrivals
creating a long tailback on the first
day. That may indicate success in
terms of head count but suggests
scope for improvement in crowd
management.
Predictably, most of the NAB New
York 'new exhibits' received their first
airing at the April NAB in Las Vegas
and again at the September IBC in
Amsterdam. However, the massive
scale of both the latter conventions
leaves plenty of scope for finding
and reporting on new or upgraded
products and services at subsequent
events.
Actus Digital's Actus5 is designed
to perform HTML5-based broadcast
recording, monitoring and clip
handling. The clips can contain single
or multiple video segments complete
with metadata, overlays, special
effects and profiles for export in any
format. A NLC (Near Live Clips) ability
allows operators to start creating clips
a few seconds after broadcast content
is aired. Also exhibited were ActusView for compliance recording, ActusAdWatch for automatic commercials
tracking and verification, Actus RatingAnalyzer for tracking competitor
viewers, Actus Alert-Center for
broadcast quality assurance and Actus
ChangeTracker which compares two
linear feeds and automatically detects
any modification.

MEDIA IN ACTION

Archiware's P5 Backup module now
offers cloud-based data backup. To
monitor storage use, the P5 Backup
Overview indicates the available
storage under 'Pool Usage'. Supported
cloud integrations include Amazon
S3, Amazon Glacier, Generic S3 and
Backblaze.
Arris' AGB240 ASI to Gigabit
Ethernet bridge enables service
providers to migrate ASI video
equipment such as satellite receivers
to a common GigE IP backbone or
transport network. It is claimed to use
90% less power than alternatives.
Aveco's Redwood Blue is a
multipurpose
video
processor
powered by Harmonic Spectrum
technology. It provides a platform for
live-to-disk recording, clip delivery,
graphics insertion, master control
switching with DVEs and subtitling. It
is fully integrated with Aveco's Astra
automation products.
Camera Corps previewed a new
addition to its range of miniature
robotic camera system. The Qx
incorporates a 1/3-inch CMOS HD
sensor delivering 1080p60, 1080p50,
1080i and 720p. It has a shutter with a
speed range of 1/4 to 1/8,000 second.
Imaging sensitivity is
F5.6 at 2000 lux
and
minimum
illumination
level at F1.6
is
1.5
lux.
Enhanced
IR
capability allows
live video capture
in zero visible light

conditions using infra-red illumination.
Features include an integral 18x zoom
lens, automatic exposure, auto white
balance, colour correction, edge
enhancement, noise reduction
and gamma control. Genlock
allows easy synchronisation with
other equipment. Among the new
capabilities are 3D noise reduction and
shading correction. Fully compatible
with all existing Camera Corps control
systems, the Qx robotic pan/tilt/zoom/
focus head can be rigged with just a
single cable to the head.
Making its NAB New York debut, the
Camera Corps Clarity is a miniature
camera delivering real-time live output
and high frame rate SDI for use with
slow motion replay servers. It can
capture HD at up to 480 frames per
second, eight times real-time at 50p
or 60p frame rate. Finished in black
and measuring just 2.6 x 1 x 4.7 inches,
the Clarity head has a 7 megapixel
micro four thirds sensor. The camera
can be genlocked and has a -13 to
+122 degrees Fahrenheit temperature
tolerance. Additional features include
a positive-lock lens mount plus a
global shutter with speeds of 1/60,
1/125, 1/500 and 1/1000 second.
Sensitivity is 2000 lux at F11 aperture.
Video can be output in 1080p, 1080i
and 720 formats at 50 or 59.94 Hz.
Clear-Com presented a newlydesigned set of IFB assignment and
management capabilities within its
EHX configuration software plus
an integrated Production Maestro
Pro assignment facility. Up to 200
virtual IFBs are supported on a single
matrix and up to 64 matrices can
be networked together to form
one system. Up to 15 system
administrators can work in
parallel
using
Production
Maestro Clients to manage a
network of Eclipse-HX matrix
frames. Operators can manage
the IFBs using touch-screen and
drag-and-drop.
Crystal's Metadata Cloud uses
Temporal Fingerprint technology
to transmit metadata out-of-band
from video and audio content,
and re-synchronise it on a frameaccurate basis with the content
wherever required in the downstream
distribution chain. Television content
can be synchronised with a secondscreen application through algorithmic
identification of content being
watched. Crystal Metadata Cloud also

Datavideo HS-2200
portable video production system

measures transmission delay at each
point in the chain. This enables the
distribution network to detect audio
sync problems and remedy them
automatically, as well as making
possible an audit of exactly what video
and audio reaches any point in the
distribution chain.
Datavideo demonstrated its HS2200 portable video production
system which combines the company's
model SE-2200 production switcher
with a 17.3 inch HD LCD monitor
and an eight channel talkback/tally
system. Packed into a carrying case,
the HS-2200 includes a monitor for
displaying all incoming input video
sources as well as programme and
preview with tally indicator, on a
single multi-view screen. The HS-2200
also has an eight-channel intercom
system complete with tally lights,
belt packs and headset, supplied with
four cameraman belt packs and four
20-metre cables included.
Edishare's XStream EFS 200 is
a single-node data storage system
with 12 servers offering 24, 48, 64,
96 or 128TBs of capacity in a 2RU
form factor. The XStream EFS 300 is
equipped with six drives, and 28, 56,
84, 112 or 140TBs of usable capacity in
a 3RU chassis for customers who need
greater capacity.
Exterity's AvediaStream TVgateways
capture live digital TV and radio
channels from any terrestrial,
satellite or cable source and stream
them directly over an IP network.
TVgateways supply multiple channels
up to 4K resolution from a single
blade.
IHSE's Draco OPS+ KVM extender
is a new 4K DisplayPort KVM module
designed for UHD displays that
incorporate Intel's open pluggable
specification (OPS+). It is based on
IHSE's Draco Ultra DisplayPort CON
extender and features video and USBHID display components. The unit is
intended for system installers and
users of large video walls needing to
support 4K video and KVM/touchscreen interfaces. IHSE's 486 Series
