Preview: 2018 NAB Show
Contributing Editor David Kirk takes a peek at the broadcast equipment
featuring, and the likely themes emerging, at NAB Show 2018 in Las Vegas...

T

he April 2018 NAB Show in
Las Vegas looks set to be
dominated by the ongoing
transition from HD to 4K and
from SDI to IP. Little sign of
new 8K products is evident
in the weeks leading up to
the show, though NHK will
present a conference paper
outlining its 'world's first' 12H-SDI/
IP hybrid 8K OB van. Interestingly,
NHK claims that going IP has enabled
it to save space. The following
preview of new exhibits is based as
ever on advance information, to be
supplemented by InBroadcast's online
news and post-show coverage.
Apantac's Mi-8 12G for UHD and
video-over-IP multiviewers accept
eight 12G SDI or four 12G (quadlink) inputs. Three models are
available, each in 1U. The Mi-8 is an
8 x 1 multiviewer dual HDMI and SDI
outputs. The Mi-8+ consists of two 4
x 1 multiviewers where the output of
each is available as both HDMI and
SDI. The Mi-8# is an 8 x 2 multiviewer
with two sets of HDMI and SDI outputs
where any input can be displayed on
one or both outputs.
Belden's Grass Valley Korona
K-Frame V-series switchers, intended
for low and mid-range broadcast and
media applications, are available in
three versions starting at 16 x 8 with
one, two or three mix/effects.
Blackmagic's ATEM 4 M/E Broadcast
Studio 4K live production switcher
features 16 chromakeyers, two UHD
multiviewers, 2D digital video effects
and full re-synchronisation on each
12G-SDI input. Multi-rate 12G-SDI
connections automatically switch
between all HD and UHD formats up to
2160p59.94 with a single BNC cable.
Bluefish444's IPConnect allows
Bluefish444 customers to capture
from existing SMPTE 2022-6 video
sources
across
10Gb
Network
infrastructure via a standard, offthe-shelf interface card allowing the

FOR-A's HVS-490 4K switcher

use of existing equipment alongside
Bluefish444 SDI video hardware. Using
the new SDK interface, Bluefish444
has added support for SMPTE 2022-6
capture into its IngeSTore software,
Adobe Premiere Pro CC and to the
Bluefish444 Avid OpenIO plug-in.
Brainstorm's OnMedia manages
virtual and augmented reality 3D
graphics based on social media feeds.
Co-developed with Never-no, it can
select the source information, edit
the graphics template, publish it and
send the graphics to any broadcaster's
workflow, or play the results directly
to air.
Comrex'
EarShot
provides
telephone-based
live
studio
programme and IFB audio to fieldbased remote broadcasts. Up to 30
users can listen via a mobile phone.
EarShot can handle up to four
programme feeds, or two IFB feeds.
Smartphone apps can be used to
achieve studio quality. EarShot can
be connected to low-cost Cloud-based
VoIP service, or tied to a station's VoIP
PBX.
FOR-A's HVS-490 4K switcher
has six mix/effects buses and a 2.5D
DVE to allow compositing with up
to 12 keyers. In addition to 100 wipe
patterns, the switcher can perform
rotate, perspective and reposition,
mosaic, posterisation, pseudo colour
and defocus are also provided.
The switcher has 16 video inputs
expandable to 40, along with nine
video outputs (including one HDMI
port) expandable to 22 (including two
HDMI ports).

Blackmagic's ATEM 4 M/E Broadcast Studio 4K live production switcher

Glidecam's Centurion is a threeaxis motorised gimbal designed
to work with the majority
of video cameras and DSLR
and mirrorless cameras
weighing from 500g to
2.25kg. Computer-controlled
direct-drive, brushless motors
stabilise the camera by taking
control of all three rotational
axes of movement. Each
brushless motor has an electric slip
ring so the wires will never tangle.

Glidecam's Centurion three-axis
motorised gimbal

Ikegami's UHK-435 2/3-inch 3-CMOS
sensor 4K/HD full studio camera
captures the extended depth-of-focus
of the 2/3-inch format and permits
use of the full range of B4 studio
and field box lenses. It delivers wide
dynamic range and wide colour gamut,
fully supporting Hybrid Log-Gamma
conforming to ITU-R BT.2100. Ikegami
UNICAM XE series peripherals such
as the CCU-430 camera control unit,
VFL701D 7-inch full HD LCD viewfinder
and VFE741D 7.4-inch OLED viewfinder
are fully compatible with the UHK-435.
The viewfinder can be positioned close
to the extended line of the optical axis.
Interfaces are available for a wide
range of 4K signal protocols including
Quad 3G-SDI, 12G SDI and IP.
Leader Electronics LV5490 4K
high dynamic range waveform
monitor now provides full direct
support for ITU-R BT.24080.
Preconfigured
settings
ensure reference levels are
correct for both PQ and HLG
production. A 75% HLG or
58% PQ marker is also displayed
automatically on the waveform
monitor graticule. Also now added
Ikegami's UHK-435 2/3-inch 3-CMOS
sensor 4K/HD full studio camera

is system gamma Optical-Optical
Transfer Function functionality for HLG
and Sony's SR-Live for HDR production
technology.
Matrox VS4Recorder Pro software
can record four live audio/video feeds
using a Matrox VS4 quad HD-SDI
capture card. Suitable for recording
live multi-camera productions, it has
two recording modes: 'multicam'
which provides synchronised frameaccurate captures and 'independent'
which offers a wide choice of video
and audio codecs. Octopus' newsroom
computer system version 8.1 adds
"a record number" of new features
and improvements. These include
enhanced assignment sorting and
grouping, advanced clip and rundown
management, rules-based archiving
of social media content, live on-air
insertion of social media posts, fast
conform of rundown timing after a
rehearsal, fast story editing and fast
clip insertion/replacement. Custom
shortcuts allow new slugs in a rundown
to be created quickly.
NewTek's TriCaster TC1 and IP
Series provide switching, streaming,
recording in HD, 3G, and 4K UHD on
all inputs. All of these products use
NewTek's NDI version 3 protocol which
is designed to offer improved encoding
performance and supports multicast
with forward error correction, a high
efficiency mode suitable for wireless
or long distance transmission plus PTZ
camera control and tally.
Osprey Video's Raptor I/O series
ranges from 3G-SDI to single-link
12G-SDI cards with one to eight inputs
plus HDMI 1.4 and 2.0 cards in single
