Throughout the season, a wealth of exclusive offers and experiences will bring fans closer to the game.
 
“Our Nike uniforms set a new standard for connecting our most passionate fans with their favorite NBA teams and players,” says Adam Silver, NBA Commissioner. “Nike has once again taken the game of basketball to a new level, this time with one of the most advanced jerseys in sports.”

Leader Electronics Forms Leader Europe Limited for European Region

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 16:25:36 -0400

Leader Electronics has formed Leader Europe Limited as a dedicated business platform for the European region which takes effect October 1, 2017. Leader has operated a UK representative office in London since August 2014, managed by Koichi Fukagawa and (from August 2015) Kevin Salvidge, both of whom will continue to develop the European market for Leader.
 
“This is the culmination of two years of hard work,” says Salvidge. “When we initially discussed this project back in 2015, we hoped to be in a position to propose to Japan the formation of Leader Europe Limited during 2018. Being able to announce the company’s establishment 12 months ahead of schedule is testament to the skill of the Leader team in Japan and the engagement of our European channel partners who are actively introducing our products to their customers.”
 
The formation of Leader Europe Limited will benefit Leader at the International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam. Leader will continue to showcase its approach to test measurement, including real-time, color and graphical displays which ensure that both operational and production staff can maximize the quality of their content. Technicians still have full access to the classic waveform monitoring and vectorscope tools.
 
Leader Europe Limited will operate from offices at First Central 200 in London’s Park Royal, supporting its existing customer base and its expanding team of channel partners throughout Europe.

PGA Tour Taps Intel To Produce Live VR, 360 Video Content at Six Tournaments

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 17:19:17 -0400

The PGA TOUR and Intel have inked a deal to produce and globally distribute live virtual reality and live 360 video at six PGA TOUR events in 2017 and 2018. Beginning with the TOUR Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta Sept. 21-24 and the Presidents Cup at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, NJ, Sept. 28-Oct. 1. Intel will produce the live VR experience with Intel True VR technology, providing access to areas of the course that can’t be experienced anywhere else — even by fans onsite.
 
Intel True VR uses panoramic, stereoscopic camera pods to create a more natural and realistic view from any direction for a more immersive VR environment.
 
“After two years of experimenting with virtual reality on the PGA TOUR, we are very excited by the viewer experience that Intel produces,” says PGA TOUR Chief Media Officer Rick Anderson. “From the TOUR’s perspective, our goal with VR is to create an experience that is completely different than what you can get as a fan at our events or by viewers of our traditional-media platforms. We are confident that Intel’s True VR technology allows us to achieve this goal. The exclusive partnership with Intel furthers our mission of creating a total fan experience that showcases our product on a global stage.”

SMPTE Approves ST 2110 Standards for Professional Media Over Managed IP Networks

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 17:22:05 -0400

SMPTE announced the approval of the first standards within SMPTE ST 2110, Professional Media Over Managed IP Networks, a new standards suite that specifies the carriage, synchronization, and description of separate elementary essence streams over professional internet protocol (IP) networks in real-time for the purposes of live production, playout, and other professional media applications.
 
With SMPTE ST 2110 standards, intrafacility traffic now can be all-IP, which means that organizations can rely on one common data-center infrastructure rather than two separate facilities for SDI and IP switching/routing. The foundation for the first SMPTE ST 2110 standards came from Video Services Forum (VSF) Technical Recommendation for Transport of Uncompressed Elementary Stream Media Over IP (TR-03), which VSF agreed to make available to SMPTE as a contribution toward the new suite of standards.
 
More information about SMPTE ST 2110 standards is available at www.smpte.org/st-2110.

ScopePrepared By The Markertek Engineering Department...

This handy info comes from our friends at Bittree Patchbays.
 
While using chemical cleansing agents or burnishing tools on the patch cord plugs or jack field itself is not recommended, periodic service to the patch cords and the exercising of the jacks should lead to many years of faithful service from your patch bays.
 
These instructions pertain to typical nickel-plated audio cords and video cords with nickel sleeves and gold-plated center contacts:
 
1. The patch cord ends should be cleaned with denatured alcohol (electronic grade 99.97%, not rubbing alcohol) and a soft, clean, lint-free cloth. When cleaning the gold-plated center pin on video patch cord plugs, use a small electronic grade foam swab only.
 
2. Using the cleaned patch cord, exercise the jacks by inserting and removing the plug as many as 10 times. The friction from this procedure helps to remove any built-up contaminants on the mating surfaces.
 
3. Repeat step #1.
 
Note: Slight scuffs in the patch cord plug’s outer plating are considered normal as the cords themselves are designed to wear-out long before the jack’s serviceable life is fully realized.
