Riedel MediorNet Interconnects
Banff Centre Venues

C

anada's Banff Centre for Arts and
Creativity recently deployed Riedel
Communications' MediorNet realtime media network to interconnect
the Centre's theatres, recital halls,
recording studios, and production
facilities.
Supplied and installed by Canadian
distributor BSE, the integrated and
decentralised signal transport network
consists of five MediorNet Compact
PRO 50G media distribution frames.
As Canada's largest arts training
institution, Banff Centre is situated
on a stunning 42-acre campus in the
Canadian Rockies near Banff, Alberta.
Prior to acquiring the MediorNet
system, the Banff Centre staff were
spending an inordinate amount of time
every day transporting and setting
up equipment at different venues, in
order to establish remote operations
for capturing and transporting camera
signals.
Now, with a MediorNet Compact
PRO unit deployed permanently in

Banff Centre video
control room

each of two control rooms and three
more used as portable stageboxes at
various event venues, Banff Centre
can
simultaneously
interconnect
multiple performance and recording
spaces with a self-healing, redundant
feed of multiplexed HD-SDI video,
MADI audio, analogue audio, Ethernet,
and intercom signals. For a larger
production in which two studios are
active simultaneously and supported
by both control rooms, the Banff
Centre team can create fibre links

between the two studio stageboxes -
while the third stagebox manages the
active cross-feeds between the control
rooms.
When
inter-control-room
feeds are not required, the fibre links
simplify the interconnection of the two
active studios.
"The MediorNet system has allowed
us to tie our campus together in one
comprehensive fibre-optic production
network. This robust flexibility is handy
since we often have simultaneous performance and recording demands that

InStudio

occur throughout our campus," said
Woody MacPhail, Senior Producer/
Technical Director, Media and Production, Banff Center. "Also, MediorNet
has allowed us to reduce our labour
costs and the ongoing wear and tear
on audio/video switching and monitoring equipment when it's moved
throughout the campus. Establishing
remote feeds is now a much more efficient process by which we just route
signals to our remote video and audio
control rooms as the need arises."
Joyce Bente, President and CEO of
Riedel North America said: "Drawing
high-profile, landmark events such as
the TEDSummit and the Banff Mountain Film + Book Festival, Banff Centre
is a showcase of the best in the creative arts. Facilities such as the Banff
Centre, with its spread-out campus
and widely distributed venues, are a
perfect use case for our MediorNet
Compact PRO. It's just right for small
to mid-sized applications, and because it's compatible with all other
MediorNet devices, it's fully scalable
as a satellite stagebox in larger media
networks."

Automatic Closed Captioning
For TV Broadcast
V

oiceInteraction's flagship product
- AUDIMUS.MEDIA - has been
adopted by TV stations across the globe
to create automatic closed captions for
their live programming and breaking
events, delivering highly accurate
captions and ensuring compliance with
the industry legal requirements.
The latest release of AUDIMUS.MEDIA,
available for demo at NAB Show 2018,
sets a new standard in the automatic
captioning
solutions
landscape,
since, among other features, it now
comprises multi-language modules to
help on cracking the language barrier
faced by video consumers.
Even though technology has made
it possible for communities to
get closer, the language is a nontransposable barrier when it comes
to
understand
foreign-language
contents. To overcome this limitation,
VoiceInteraction is presenting a new
set of multi-language features:
* An automatic live translation
module that is able to produce a text

stream in a new language,
making the content accessible
to wider audiences;
* A live-dubbing module
that creates an extra audio
track produced by a foreignlanguage synthetic voice and
further helps media companies
to instantly reach worldwide
viewers;
* Multi-language
speech
recognition that produces captions for
all speakers in a live show, not being
limited to a spoken language defined
in advance.
Built on an extensive machine learning
backbone, AUDIMUS.MEDIA performs
a daily update of the vocabulary to
make sure that unusual names and
terms are covered in breaking news.
The knowledge base can be further
enriched with local names as well
as custom word pronunciations.
Moreover, an expletive dictionary is
applied to filter out inappropriate
expressions.

To cope with the increasing number of
video distribution platforms and legal
requirements for online and offline
video captioning, AUDIMUS.MEDIA
can deliver its captions to several
platforms simultaneously through:
* Closed Caption Encoders (Link
Electronics, Evertz, EEG, DoCaption);
* Wowza Streaming Engine (allows
publishing to Youtube, Facebook Live);
* Any encoder/CDN that is able to
receive video with CEA-608 captions
muxed by software.

For offline video (VOD),
AUDIMUS.MEDIA
makes
available
timestamped
captions in several industry
standard formats (SCC,
SRT, EBU-TT-D, SMTPETT, IMSC), which can
embedded as CEA-608
captions into video files.
AUDIMUS.MEDIA is, thus,
a reliable, flexible and
cost-effective platform to produce
live captions, live subtitles and live
dubbing, targeting several markets
through different platforms. It brings
a brand-new set of possibilities to
content accessibility, that the industry
has never seen before, presented
in a complete standalone solution
that handles the entire caption's
production and distribution workflow.
AUDIMUS.MEDIA captions reach more
than 250 million people worldwide
every day. Visit VoiceInteraction at
NAB Show to learn more about this
innovate solution.
