NBC Will Broadcast All PyeongChang Winter Olympic Programming Live Across All Time Zones

Wed, 29 Mar 2017 17:27:58 -0400

For the first time ever at a Winter Olympics, NBC will broadcast all of its Olympic programming live across all time zones. Whether daytime, primetime or late night, all U.S. viewers will be able to watch NBC’s coverage of the PyeongChang Winter Games at the same time. 
 
“Nothing brings America together for two weeks like the Olympics, and that communal experience will now be shared across the country at the same time, both on television and streaming online,” said Jim Bell, President, NBC Olympics Production & Programming. “That means social media won’t be ahead of the action in any time zone, and as a result, none of our viewers will have to wait for anything. This is exciting news for the audience, the advertisers, and our affiliates alike.”
 
On most nights of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games, the primetime broadcast will begin at 8 p.m. ET, 7 p.m. CT, 6 p.m. MT, and 5 p.m. PT. It will be followed in all time zones by local news, and then a “Primetime Plus” program, consisting of live continuing coverage from PyeongChang. A replay of the primetime program will follow “Primetime Plus.”
 
NBCUniversal announced last month that Mike Tirico will serve as the host of the primetime program for NBC’s coverage of the XXIII Olympic Winter Games from PyeongChang, South Korea, taking over for Bob Costas, who had served in the role for NBC since 1992. NBC’s PyeongChang primetime coverage begins Thursday, February 8, 2018. The Opening Ceremony takes place on Friday, February 9, 2018.

AJA Releases IPR-1G-SDI Mini-Converter for IP Workflows

Mon, 27 Mar 2017 17:36:44 -0400

AJA Video Systems’ new IPR-1G-SDI Mini-Converter is now available. IPR-1G-SDI extracts a JPEG 2000 essence from an incoming IP stream and presents it for display on SDI devices. 
 
A rugged, fanless VSF TR-01 (and other JPEG 2000 over MPEG2-TS formats) to 3G-SDI Mini-Converter, IPR-1G-SDI is suited for point of use applications including monitoring, digital signage, video walls and beyond.

Audio associated with the video stream is extracted, synchronized and embedded into the SDI stream as well as output on an analog RCA stereo interface.
 
IPR-1G-SDI includes:
 
–1x RJ-45 (IEC 60603-7) for 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet media input
–Essence support: VSF TR-01 and other JPEG 2000 MPEG2-TS workflows
–Rugged, fanless, and compact design
–2x 3G-SDI BNC outputs with 4:2:2 10-bits/pixel
–Embedded and analog audio outputs
–Full 10-bit pixel processing pipeline
–Network (LAN) control and status

Artel Video Systems Intros ATSC 3.0 Transition Solutions

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 17:41:46 -0400

CSIArtel Video Systems has introduced the ATSC 3.0 Transition Over Fiber and ATSC 3.0 Transition Over IP solutions to Artel’s InfinityLink broadcast media transport platform. 
 
Artel’s InfinityLink ATSC 3.0 Transition Solutions enable next-generation, over-the-air broadcast and content delivery for the new IP-based ATSC 3.0 standard while retaining legacy signal transport capabilities for ATSC 1.0. The InfinityLink ATSC 3.0 Transition Over Fiber and ATSC 3.0 Transition Over IP solutions include all necessary platform components and optical and/or electrical transceivers, ready for interconnection with either customer-furnished, single-mode fiber or a local, carrier-supplied IP GigE service.
 
“Artel understands the complexity of ATSC 3.0 adoption and the impact this will have on broadcasters. As TV stations and networks start the migration from ATSC 1.0 to 3.0, they will need solutions to make this migration as seamless as possible and accommodate their specific requirements and timing for 3.0 adoption,” says Rafael Fonseca, Vice President of Product Management, Artel Video Systems. “Networks will require flexible and future-proof solutions to manage the multifaceted challenges they face. Artel’s InfinityLink ATSC 3.0 Transition Solutions provide the versatility necessary to manage the transition from ATSC 1.0 to 3.0, and they provide a path to achieve greater efficiencies in signal transport over IP- and fiber-based networks.”
 
At the 2017 NAB Show, Artel Video Systems will demonstrate the InfinityLink ATSC 3.0 Transition Solutions. Attendees are encouraged to stop by booth N4511 to learn more.

FCC Expands Channel Sharing Opportunities for Broadcasters

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 17:03:33 -0400

The Federal Communications Commission today adopted a Report and Order that expands broadcast stations’ ability to share a single TV channel so viewers can continue to receive their broadcast programming.
 
The ability to channel-share is an important component of the FCC’s incentive auction, mandated by Congress in 2012, which provides a voluntary opportunity for full power and Class A broadcast stations to relinquish their spectrum and share a channel with another full power or Class A broadcaster in exchange for a part of the proceeds from a related mobile wireless auction. Separately, the Commission in 2015 extended channel sharing to low power television (LPTV) and TV translator stations to help stations displaced by the incentive auction stay on the air.
 
Today’s Order permits television broadcast stations with an auction-related channel sharing agreement (CSA) to continue channel sharing by entering into a new CSA in the event that their existing agreement ends. This enables stations to continue providing service to their viewers. The new rules also permit Class A stations to channel share outside of the auction context.
 
Additionally, all LPTV and TV translator stations are now able to share a channel with a full power or Class A station. This flexibility gives LPTV and TV translator stations that are displaced by the auction repacking process more options for continuing to operate. It also may reduce construction and operating costs for LPTV and TV translator stations, many of which have limited resources, are minority-owned, or provide programming to underserved audiences.

Tired of pulling the braid back over your coax cable jacket and getting little pieces of braid in your fingers?
 
Do it the EZ way! Cut a small piece of Velcro, the 'prickly' side, and stick it on the side of your coax stripper. You now have a comb to brush back the braid over the jacket. You will be happy with how nice and even the braid looks and your fingers will be happy too!
