FCC Settles Investigation Of Relay Service Providers

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 17:19:27 -0500

The Federal Communications Commission today announced a $9.1 million settlement with two companies which provide telecommunications services to consumers with hearing and speech disabilities. In addition to a monetary penalty for improper billing, the settlement with telecommunications relay service (TRS) providers Purple Communications and CSDVRS repays the TRS Fund and establishes a 5-year compliance plan to ensure that services going forward incorporate the required checks.
 
The TRS Fund reimburses telephone carriers and other providers for providing relay services to consumers with hearing and speech disabilities. To ensure that TRS is used for its intended purpose and that providers are only compensated for service provided to eligible individuals, for some forms of TRS, providers must verify the registration information of TRS users before issuing those users the ten-digit numbers necessary to use the service. The Commission established a clear legal standard for this verification in a 2008 order.
 
In December 2015, the Commission fined Purple for failing to properly verify customers and for submitting improper bills for reimbursement from the TRS Fund. The settlement resolves that proceeding, as well as additional investigations and pending matters against the companies. Today’s action by the Commission approves a settlement that resolves all pending enforcement matters involving Purple and CSDVRS.
 
The Commission’s adoption of this settlement reflects FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s recently announced process change that any settlement (formally called a “Consent Decree”) stemming from a Commission action will be voted on by the Commission.

Leader Electronics Joins AIMS

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 16:44:28 -0500

Leader Electronics Corporation has joined the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS). A globally active producer of high-grade test and measurement equipment for the broadcast industry, Leader is in full accord with the desire expressed by a growing number of broadcasters and media organizations to implement IP-based technology alongside legacy SDI-based systems or even to replace SDI entirely.
 
“The television industry is in fast transition as it embraces higher display resolution standards such as 4K, higher dynamic range, wider colour gamut and the increasing use of IP,” says Leader’s European business development manager Kevin Salvidge. “Joining AIMS demonstrates Leader’s continued commitment to providing the industry’s technical managers, content producers and post-production creatives with all the facilities they need to operate successfully in an increasingly multi-standard world. We are allowing broadcasters to migrate from the traditional SDI world to the brave new IP world at their own pace, with test and measurement products that operate in either or both environments.”
 
The Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the education, awareness, and promotion of industry standards for the transmission of video, audio, and ancillary information over an IP infrastructure, as well as products based on those standards. The group represents the interests of broadcast and media companies as well as technology suppliers who share a commitment to facilitating the industry’s transition from SDI to IP through standards and interoperable solutions that enable the rapid evolution to open, agile, and versatile production environments.
 
Leader’s flagship LV5490 4K/HD/SD test instrument is already compatible with Sony’s IP Live Video and Networked Media Interface technologies.  The Networked Media Interface packetizes video, audio and metadata, enabling real-time transmission between video production equipment via standard network infrastructures. It enhance Sony’s IP Live Production system by increasing efficiency and reducing cost for the broadcasting of live studio and sports production.
 
The LV5490 with its latest features will be demonstrated on Leader booth C9021 at the 2017 NAB Show, Las Vegas Convention Center, April 24-27.

ISE 2017 Welcomed Record Attendees to Annual A/V Show

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 16:54:03 -0500

By the time the show closed its doors last Friday, Integrated Systems Europe had proven unequivocally why it is the international destination of choice for A/V and systems-integration professionals.
 
ISE 2017 saw 1,192 of the world’s leading A/V equipment vendors and service suppliers showcase the latest technology for the digital signage, unified communications, audio, smart building, residential, and education sectors.
 
On the show floor the atmosphere was decidedly upbeat. Exhibitors, including 202 making their ISE debuts, were seen increasingly to present their products and solutions in ‘real world’ scenarios, designed to meet the needs of the increasing numbers of end users visiting the show.
 
Registered visitor attendees to ISE 2017 were at an all-time high at 73,413. This represents an 11.7% increase over the 2016 edition. Attendees came from 150 different countries, reflecting the show’s global reach and influence, while almost 600 registered attendees were from the press and media.
 
“ISE2017 has been the biggest and best year yet for CEDIA. We expanded our education offering and doubled bookings to more than 800,” says Vin Bruno, CEDIA CEO. “ISE 2017 also gave us a great opportunity to connect with so many of our members from around the globe. Our booth was continuously busy especially during the CEDIA Talks. The show was a huge success and we can’t wait for next year.”
 
ISE 2018 will take place at the RAI Amsterdam from February 6-9. It will feature one more additional hall to accommodate new business.

Mike Tirico To Take Over for Bob Costas as NBC’s Primetime Olympics Host

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 16:49:53 -0500

NBC Olympics announced that Bob Costas, the primetime host of every NBC Olympics since 1992, has passed the torch to Mike Tirico, who will make his debut as NBC’s primetime Olympic host beginning with PyeongChang 2018.
 
Costas served as NBC’s primetime host for a U.S.-television record 11 Olympics — every Olympics on NBC since 1992, including the 2012 London Games, which is the most-watched television event in U.S. history, reaching 217 million viewers. He also served as NBC’s late-night host at the 1988 Seoul Olympics.
 
“It has been both a privilege and an incredible personal and professional experience to have been part of NBC’s Olympic coverage all these years,” said Costas, who has the longest tenure of NBC’s sports announcers (37 years). “I’m especially appreciative of all the talented and dedicated people I worked for and with on those broadcasts. I always felt that, in a certain sense, I was carrying the ball for them. It’s been a wonderful run, but I just felt now was the right time to step away, and I’m grateful that NBC left that decision to me.”
 
Said Tirico, who made his Olympics debut last summer as an NBC daytime host and host of the Closing Ceremony in Rio, “The level and longevity of Bob’s tenure have left an indelible mark on American television and the Olympic Games. I am honored to call him a friend, humbled by this opportunity, and thankful to the many people who have helped make this possible.”
 
Tirico, who joined NBC Sports Group in July 2016, has had a whirlwind first seven months with the company. In addition to his role in Rio, he has served as host of Football Night in America, the most-watched studio show in sports, and hosted The Open and The Ryder Cup golf and Breeders’ Cup horse racing. He also handled play-by-play for Sunday Night Football, Thursday Night Football, and Notre Dame football.
 
The Opening Ceremony of the PyeongChang Winter Games is slated for Feb. 9, 2018.

Blackmagic Design Introduces HyperDeck Studio Mini

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 17:25:05 -0500

Blackmagic Design has introduced HyperDeck Studio Mini, a miniaturized professional deck that records and plays back broadcast quality 10-bit video using commonly available SD and UHS-II cards. HyperDeck Studio Mini features 6G-SDI for working with all SD, HD and Ultra HD formats up to 2160p30. HyperDeck Studio Mini is unique because it includes HDMI for monitoring, a built in sync generator and ethernet for uploading media via FTP so it also becomes an ideal solution for digital signage tasks. HyperDeck Studio Mini is available now for $695 at Markertek.
 
The advanced miniaturized design of HyperDeck Studio Mini puts the powerful features of a professional grade deck into a compact size that’s only 5.5 inches wide and 1.5 inches tall. This incredible miniaturization is made possible because HyperDeck Studio Mini records onto inexpensive, commonly available SD cards, which are a fraction of the size of SSD’s and other professional media. The design is based on the Teranex Mini form factor, making it modular so customers can mount HyperDeck Studio Mini using the optional Teranex Mini Rack Shelf and combine it with other products to create a completely customized deckbased on their workflow.

Monochrome

From the Greek μονόχρωμος (monochromos), meaning “one color”, which is a combination of μόνος (monos), meaning “alone” or “solitary”, and χρώμα (chroma), meaning “color”. Monochromatic light is light of a single wavelength, though in practice it can refer to light of a narrow wavelength range. A monochromatic object or image is one whose range of colors consists of shades of a single color or hue; monochrome images in neutral colors are also known as grayscale or black-and-white.
