Bluebell Opticom At NAB Show
B

luebell will demonstrate its
Silhouette
power-insertion
product family for robotic cameras in
remote production scenarios, the
Silhouette is a fully integrated
4K UHD robotic head system
that works with SD-SDI, HD-SDI,
3G-SDI, and 4K UHD cameras to
provide power and control to
the camera head, and fibre optic
connectivity for the remote-control
panel.
Silhouette comes in three sizes
and
can
accommodate
any
combination of 4K HDR, quad
3G-SDI, trilevel sync, GigE, serial data
control, communications, IFB, and
multichannel audio signals. Customers
can choose to get power from a 12V
DC supply, a V-Mount battery, a hybrid
cable, or a combination of the three.
New are the Silhouette Combine4
and Silhouette Combine8 converters,
which will make their global debut.
These let users replace four or eight
SMPTE hybrid cables with just one.
The units fit between the camera
and the CCU on up to eight camera
channels to eliminate rigging time,

Bluebell's Silhouette line

transport weight, and fault-finding.
Designed to work with the Bluebell
ShaxX, Combine4 and Combine8 can
be configured for two identical hybrid
I/Os. The Diverse Option enables two
separate and independently routed
hybrid cables to be used.
On show will be Bluebell's Silhouette
Sync which provides transport
for 4K UHD, 3G-SDI, genlock,
communications, camera control, data,
GigE and programme audio, all over
one fibre. One of the most important

features available in all Bluebell 12G
4K UHD transport kits is the option
to convert 12G-SDI signals to HDMI
2.0 - a must-have tool for displaying
high-resolution images on a standard
4K monitor, thereby saving a small
fortune on 12G-SDI monitors.
Bluebell's BC369, a super
high-density
converter
card
that enables 12G UHD 4K HDR
optical conversion with eight I/
Os on board. When the BC369 is
deployed in Bluebell's standard
3RU rack frame, users can achieve
120 ports of 12G-SDI in the space
of three rack units for extra-dense,
reliable broadcast transport.
Bluebell's BN390 unit, which combines
four 3G-SDI signals onto one 12G-SDI
signal via a single-mode fibre output,
gains new features that make it
possible to remotely configure the

link. Using an RJ45 connector, its own
webpage and allows the user to set the
signal type and designation whilst in
service.
Bluebell has upgraded its BC860series multirate Ethernet-to-fibre
converter cards to transport "jumbo
packets" - Ethernet packets with more
than 1500 bytes of payload - ideal for
the gaming industry or anyone who
sends super-slow-motion images over
Ethernet networks.
Visitors to Bluebell booth at the 2018
NAB Show will get a look at Bluebell's
newly upgraded Network Monitoring
system.
In 2017, Bluebell earned an Emmy
Award from the National Academy
of Television Arts & Sciences for
pioneering development of SDI-overfibre optic networks.

Viz Libero AR Offers
Immersive
Sports Analysis
V

izrt brings a new tool to the
broadcast studio with Viz Libero
AR. Just in time for the World Cup, Viz
Libero AR combines the analysis power
of Viz Libero with augmented reality
(AR) graphics, creating a new way for
sports presenters to tell the story of the
action on the field and engage sports
fans.
"Viz Libero AR brings the pitch into the
studio, giving the fans the experience
of analysing the most important plays
with the experts," said Remo Ziegler,
Vizrt's VP Product Management
Sports. "The seamless transition
between Viz Libero AR and Viz Libero
analysis clips lets the viewers sit in the
first row at all times, be it in the studio
or on the pitch."
Viz Libero combines realistic 3D
replays and virtual graphics from any

sport to provide deeper, multi-angle
analysis of key plays and moments
within the game. A photorealistic
3D view based on the original game
footage enriched with analysis
graphics are placed as AR elements
in front of the sports presenter in the
studio. Studio cameras control the
angle of the field tying together the
studio and the analysis. The sports
presenter can interactively control the
action using an iPad or touchscreen.
Remo Ziegler added: "Vizrt's focus
is to expand broadcasters' sports
storytelling capabilities with tools that
inform and engage audiences. Viz
Libero AR adds a new "wow" effect
that viewers will remember from the
Football World Cup or any other sports
event beyond."
At NAB 2018, Vizrt will also showcase

other sports innovations for the World
Cup. This includes visualising player
tracking, interactive graphics and
augmented reality tools for the studio.
Teams and coaching staff will be able
to see the latest version of Viz Libero
designed to help them break down key
plays of the game.
For American Football, Viz Arena's

Virtual studio pitch - Viz Libero AR

Down and Distance package has been
enhanced with new features for the
2018 season. Vizrt will also show the
world's most advanced optical ad
replacement system, Viz Eclipse.
Viz Libero AR can be seen for the first
time during the Big AR Show on Vizrt's
NAB booth.
