Timecode Systems Intros New Timecode-Sync Solution for GoPro HERO6 Cameras

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 07:58:00 -0500

Timecode Systems has released the SyncBac PRO for GoPro HERO6 Black cameras, a customized timecode-sync solution for the newest generation of GoPro action cameras.
 
Using the same transformative timecode technology as the original SyncBac PRO, this latest release from Timecode Systems has been remodelled to work seamlessly with the new GoPro HERO6 Black camera. By enabling the HERO6 to generate its own frame-accurate timecode, the SyncBac PRO creates the capability to timecode-sync multiple GoPro cameras wirelessly over long-range RF.
 
If GoPro cameras are being used as part of a wider professional multicamera shoot, SyncBac PRO also allows GoPro cameras to timecode-sync with professional cameras and professional audio devices using Timecode Systems products for timecode. At the end of a shoot, the edit team receives SD cards with frame-accurate timecode embedded into the MP4 file. Eliminating the need to align content manually, SyncBac PRO makes it quicker and easier to transfer footage directly into the edit timeline for a swifter and far more efficient postproduction process that delivers huge cost savings.
 
Time savings of around 85 percent are being achieved in postproduction as a result of using SyncBac PRO, but it’s not just editors who appreciate the benefits that synchronisation offers. The creative freedom SyncBac PRO allows on set means everyone from the camera operators to the artists in front of the camera feel the benefits.

FCC Authorizes Next Gen TV Broadcast Standard

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 08:54:00 -0500

FCC logoThe Federal Communications Commission has adopted new rules to let television broadcasters use the Next Generation broadcast television transmission standard, also called ATSC 3.0, on a voluntary, market-driven basis.
 
The Next Generation TV standard will let broadcasters provide consumers with more vivid pictures and sound, including Ultra High Definition television and superior reception, mobile viewing capabilities, advanced emergency alerts, better accessibility features, localized content, and interactive educational children’s content.
 
Today’s action adopts rules that will allow broadcasters the flexibility to deploy Next Generation TV service while minimizing the impact on consumers and industry stakeholders. The upgraded technology will merge the capabilities of over-the-air broadcasting with the broadband viewing and information delivery methods of the Internet using the same 6 MHz channels presently allocated for digital television (DTV).
 
Among other things, the Report & Order:
- Requires broadcasters that use Next Generation TV to partner with another local station in their market to simulcast their programming in the current DTV standard, called ATSC 1.0, so that viewers can continue to receive their existing broadcast service without having to purchase new equipment;
- Subjects Next Gen TV signals to the public interest obligations that currently apply to television broadcasters; and
- Requires broadcasters to provide advance on-air notifications to educate consumers about Next Generation TV service deployment and simulcasting.

NASCAR Debuts Live VR, 360-Degree Video at Homestead-Miami Speedway

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 17:11:26 -0500

For the first time, NASCAR fans on smartphones and tablets will have access to live, 360-degree views of pre-race events at Homestead-Miami Speedway before Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Championship finale.
 
Leading up to the Ford EcoBoost 400 on Nov. 19 (3 p.m. ET, NBC, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio), fans will have behind-the-scenes VR/360-video access to the driver’s meeting and throughout the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series garage via NASCAR.com and the NASCAR Mobile app, regardless of their location.
 
The live video, delivered by Ultracast, can also be viewed through smartphone, VR headsets, and laptops. This technology platform transforms the device into a launchpad, propelling viewers into fully immersive, 360-degree or virtual reality live experiences.
 
When engaged with the 360-degree view, fans can choose where they look as live events happen to personalize their experience. As the individual’s phone, tablet or headset moves, so does the live camera angle.
 
In addition to Sunday’s driver’s meeting, much of the at-track content available via NASCAR’s GarageCam will be presented in live VR, 360 video during Ford Championship Weekend.

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.
