IBC2019 Preview
Contributing Editor David Kirk looks ahead to IBC2019
and the irrevocable move toward UHD production...

I

nBroadcast readers with long
memories will recollect that
standard-definition video production
was successfully ousted by highdefinition once the cost of HD
equipment became roughly similar
to SD. The transition from HD to
UHD is currently going through the
same process to the point where
only a lunatic would now originate a
high-budget programme or series in
anything short of UHD. Transmission
service providers can catch up when
they choose. Like NAB in April 2019,
IBC in September will see a continuing
switch from HD to UHD as the main
theme before the cycle repeats itself
with an inevitable push from nominally
4K UHD to nominally 8K Hi-Vision and
of course another generation of data
compression. The following is a mixed
bag of new-for-IBC hardware, software
and cloudware as discernible in run-up
to the August edition.
AJA Video Systems' Ki Pro Ultra is
a 4K/UHD/2K/HD video recorder and
player that supports Apple ProRes
or Avid DNxHR files in a range of
video formats and frame rates up to
4K, and Avid DNxHD MXF files at HD
resolutions. Apple ProRes HQ can be
captured when using AJA Pak 2000 or
AJA PAK 1000 SSD media.
Anevia's NEA-CDN 5 software gives
operators the ability to scale their OTT
services for peak viewing by adding
their own content delivery network to
their existing infrastructure. Designed
specifically for video streaming, it
reduces network load by caching user
requests and content to form a shield
which protects origin servers from
multiple requests. Operators can scale
their service up and down by using
virtual-machine hosts over an internal
or external cloud infrastructure.
An accessible Kubernetes cluster
is required, available on most
public clouds, plus the NEA-CDN 5
configuration itself.
Anton/Bauer's Titon, on the Vitec
Group stand, is a series of V-Mount
or Gold Mount batteries available in
90 and 150Wh versions. The batteries
are intended for use with HD-DSLR,
mirrorless, ENG and digital cine
cameras as well as LED panels such
as Litepanels' new Gemini 1x1 Soft

AJA's Ki Pro Ultra 4K/UHD/2K/HD video recorder/player

RGBWW light. With P-TAP and highspeed Smart USB ports, Titon can also
power accessories such as wireless
transmitters, monitors, and smart
devices.
Custom Consoles will exhibit the
latest refinements to its MediaWall
studio monitor mounting frames
and
Module-R
control
room
furniture. The enhanced MediaWall
incorporates
redesigned
lateral
support beams which allow display
panels to be attached more easily.
Cable management is now via
steel ducts rather than PVC. The
new ducts are stronger and more
attractively styled, which customers
will appreciate in open-plan control
rooms. The supporting legs are now
a silver extrusion with a black cable
management insert, to match the
Module-R desk styles which were
introduced at IBC2018. Latestgeneration Module-R desks also
now come with a steel cable tray as
standard rather than PVC, providing
greater strength and eliminating
the environmental issue of recycling
plastic components. Also on show
will be an enhanced version of
the SystemTwo motorised heightadjustable edit-suite desk, now
equipped as standard with heavier
duty lifting pillars. Support capacity
has been increased from 140 to 240kg.
Densitron's UReady 2U Full Surface
Rack Display is a new 2U 1920 x 285
pixel wide-viewing-angle TFT display
designed for signal and picture
monitoring and as a control system
with multitouch projected capacitive
touch. The display enables users
to preview what is going out via a
specific device. It includes many of the
multitouch and swipe functions found
on modern-day mobile phones and
tablets.

Fuji will demonstrate three additions
to its UA Series of UHD 4K lenses:
the UA125x8 zoom, the UA18x6.7
handheld zoom, and the UA23x7.6
handheld zoom. The UA125x8 has 125x
high magnification optics covering a
focal length from 8 to 1000 mm, with
an F1.7 aperture. The UA125x is now
the longest and widest lens for UHD
applications in the UA series.

IDX IPL Series
PowerLink V-Mount batteries

intercom, return-video feeds to be
exchanged between the CCU-430
and a local IP network hub along
a light weight optical fibre instead
of requiring multiple SDI cables,
enabling easy and low latency signal
distribution. Uncompressed video
can be transmitted via an integral
optical interface using either one
25 GbE or two 10 GbE SFP modules.
Redundancy can be implemented
easily to ensure reliability by installing
additional SFP modules. The MoIP
interface module can be combined
with an HD output option to deliver
2160p, 1080p and 1080i over IP and/
or SDI simultaneously. Many broadcast
systems currently use a mix of SDI and
MoIP. For easy workflow transition,
2 x 12G SDI is therefore included as a
standard.
Leader Electronics will show two
new 25 GbE options for the LV5600
portable waveform monitor and its
LV7600 rasterising equivalent. Option
LV5600-SER06/LV7600-SER06 is a
25 GbE single-mode video-over-IP/
multi-mode fibre IP interface which
provides conformance with the SMPTE
2110 standard for transmitting 4K
content in a non-compressed format
via Ethernet at up to 25 gigabits per
second. SMPTE ST 2022-6, SMPTE
ST 2110-20/-30/-40 IP standards
are supported as well as SMPTE ST
2022-7 redundancy and SMPTE ST
2059 PTP synchronisation. Option
LV5600-SER32/LV7600-SER32
is
an IP test pattern generator. This
can generate HD and 3840 × 2160
UHD test signals for delivery via
SMPTE ST 2110-20 / 30/31/40
IP. IP channel stress testing can
be performed by adding jitter and
errors to IP packets. A network
synchronisation mode allows PTPsynchronised video and audio test
signals to be generated.
Mediaproxy will demonstrate recent
upgrades to its LogServer IP logging,
monitoring and analysis system.
Services such as Twitter, Facebook and
YouTube have different requirements
for how material is prepared and
Mediaproxy
has
incorporated
dedicated tools for these into
LogServer. They include features for
cropping the image and altering the

IDX' IPL Series PowerLink batteries
are stackable and hot-swappable
V-Mount units for digital cinema
cameras. Up to four can be linked
together. With 96 and 143 watt-hour
capacities, the IPL-98 and IPL-150
are both high-load batteries that
meet passenger aircraft carry-on
specification. The IPL Series also
includes two 80 watt D-Taps and
one USB output to power additional
items. An integral V-Torch LED light is
provided for use when mounting the
batteries in dark environments. Power
levels are displayed in 10% increments
via a five-LED power indicator.
Ikegami will introduce to the
European market a 4K Mediaover-IP gateway for the UHK430 studio camera. Designed to
slot directly into the camera's
CCU-430 control unit, the
Ikegami's 4K Media-over-IP
module allows 4K UHD video
gateway for the UHK-430 studio camera
and additional signals such as
