TAG Video Systems Adds Dolby
Atmos Support To MCM-9000

Latest FUJINON
Premista Lens
Launched
O

F

UJIFILM has launched its new
FUIJINON Premista 19-45mm T2.9 "
(Premista 19-45mm), a wide-angle
zoom covering focal lengths from
19mm to 45mm. The new lens will be
released on 28 January 2021 as the
third model to join the Premista Series
of cinema zoom lenses. The Premista
19-45mm supports Large-Format
sensors and delivers outstanding
high resolution, natural and beautiful
bokeh and rich tonality with HDR (high
dynamic range).
The Premista 19-45mm is a compact
and
premium-quality
wide-angle
zoom lens, developed with FUJIFILM's
optical technology nurtured over many
years. It effectively controls distortion
to deliver natural images with little
distortion across the entire zoom
range.

FUJIFILM strongly supports highquality video production for a variety
of scenes by covering wide-angle focal
length and widening the range of focal
length to 19-250mm, thanks to the
addition of Premista 19-45mm to the
Premista series which prepares the
standard zoom and telephoto zoom.
In 2019, FUJIFILM released both a
standard and telephoto zoom lenses
as part of the Premista Series of
zoom lenses for high-performance
cinema cameras equipped with a
Large-Format sensor. The series has
been praised by professionals at the
frontline of video production for its
edge-to-edge sharpness and a wide
range of focal lengths for exceptional
convenience.
The Premista 19-45mm is a wideangle zoom lens that offers a constant
T-stop of 2.9 across its focal lengths
from 19mm to 45mm. Featuring largediameter aspherical lens elements
and a unique zooming system, the
lens achieves an astonishing level of
edge-to-edge sharpness. Additionally,
distortion is effectively reduced even
at the widest focal lengths, delivering
natural
footage
with
minimal
distortion across the entire zoom
range.

TT broadcasters now have
the ability to monitor
Dolby Atmos encoded audio
thanks to an industry first by
TAG Video Systems. TAG, the
world leader in 100% SW, 100%
IP, 100% COTS/Cloud, Probing,
Monitoring and Multiviewing
solutions, for all four of the
major broadcast applications
(Live Production, Playout,
Delivery and OTT), has announced
that its MCM-9000 Monitoring and
Multiviewer platform now supports
Dolby Atmos. The unique enhancement
allows broadcasters to verify, validate
and ensure error-free video and audio
content delivery for MPEG-TS and
OTT sources. TAG's MCM-9000 is now
certified by Dolby to support Dolby
Atmos, while also supporting Dolby
Digital and Dolby Digital Plus™ formats. 
Dolby Atmos, a 3D surround sound
technology developed and adapted
for home cinema use by Dolby
Laboratories, expands on existing
systems by adding multiple height
channels, allowing the sound to be
interpreted as three-dimensional.
Individual sounds can be precisely
placed in the room, including overhead

and down low, immersing the listener
in an intense experience. The added
support, certified by Dolby, enables
TAG's MCM-9000 to decode the Dolby
Atmos stream for both MPEG-TS and
OTT broadcasted content, allowing
for full monitoring and audio bars
visualization of the audio on all Dolby
Surround and Atmos channels.
" The boom in streaming services
has motivated many OTT broadcasters
to add Dolby Atmos to their content
delivery in order to enhance the
listening experience for their clients,
but until now they had no way of
monitoring the protocol, " said
Tomer Schechter, CEO. " When one
of the world's largest media and
entertainment companies came to us
to request this capability be added to

our MCM-9000 Multiviewer,
we were happy to do it and
can report that it is being
successfully used to ensure
error free video and audio
content delivery. "
The MCM-9000 monitors the
Dolby Atmos stream in parallel
with the video and regular
audio allowing the broadcaster
to ensure all structural
aspects are correct and to detect any
abnormalities. All channels can be
decoded down to baseband audio with
the Atmos information displayed on
the Multiviewer.
Added Schechter, " TAG always
strives to provide the highest level
of service by integrating support for
all the newest formats, technologies,
and hardware into our MCM-9000. If
our customers ask for it, we respond
quickly to ensure they maintain
a competitive edge in a crowded
marketplace. We're delighted to
add Dolby Atmos to the list of other
formats we recently added support
to such as CMAF and Zixi, and we'll
continue to keep ahead of the
technology curve as more formats
emerge. "

Germany's NDR Integrates CGI's
StudioDirector 2.0
C
GI, the leading newsroom system
provider in Europe has announced
that
Germany's
Norddeutscher
Rundfunk (NDR), a member of the ARD
Group, has integrated StudioDirector
2.0 into its existing OpenMedia
newsroom ecosystem.
The public radio and television
broadcaster NDR broadcasts for the
German states of Lower Saxony,
Mecklenburg-Vorpommern,SchleswigHolstein and Hamburg, and first
became a CGI (back then Annova)
customer more than 15 years ago
when it implemented an OpenMedia
newsroom system for its news
production staff. The application of
StudioDirector 2.0 from CGI follows
NDR's strategic movement to operate
its new NDR1 studio as a broadcast
automation-supported control room to
produce the regional magazine format
" Hamburg Journal " and the news
format " NDR-Info " .
When stories are created from
scratch they typically start uncoded

and therefore require additional
work before they can run properly
in the automation system. The
integration of StudioDirector 2.0
into NDR's existing OpenMedia
newsroom system enables their
editorial staff to focus on the content
and dramaturgy of the show avoiding
struggles with required directives or
automation templates or adapting the
new show design.
CGI's StudioDirector 2.0 allows news
organisations to offload monotonous
and repetitive tasks such as inserting
automation MOS (media object
server) commands and ensuring all
required graphics are linked or delinked before going to air. Journalists
and directors can select the desired
studio layout for their stories in a show
from a predefined list of models. This
dramatically increases efficiencies
by freeing up valuable editorial time
and reducing the chance of errors,
especially when it comes to lastminute edits on fast-moving stories.

The benefits of StudioDirector 2.0
is that it's intuitive to use, everything
is automated and the tool interacts
with existing IP-based systems.
StudioDirector 2.0 plays a critical
role in the interaction between the
editorial system and the control
room automation. In a joint and
constructive effort between NDR and
CGI, much more than just a tool or
practical feature was created - a new
philosophy of how editorial teams and
production crews efficiently produce a
program in direct exchange with each
other was developed. With the new
StudioDirector 2.0 installation NDR
can now use the full potential of its
OpenMedia system in the studio and
gallery, which helps them to reach the
next level of broadcast-future.
