NASCAR To Expand In-Car Twitter Live Streams

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 17:22:29 -0400

NASCAR announced it will live-stream one in-car camera on Twitter for 15 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races during the second half of the 2018 season, including all 10 NASCAR Playoff races.
Beginning with five regular season races this summer, the experience will once again provide fans a unique look from inside the race car with a live camera stream that can be accessed via NASCAR’s Twitter, @NASCAR.
Fans can watch full broadcasts of these regular season and NASCAR Playoff races on NBC, NBCSN, and the NBC Sports app.
NASCAR debuted the in-car camera live stream on Twitter during last year’s NASCAR Playoffs, when four Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Championship contenders drove the live audience on Twitter from the green flag all the way to Victory Lane.
Fans on Twitter will experience an in-car camera live stream from the iconic Daytona International Speedway for the first time during the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race on July 7.
NASCAR will also stream an in-car camera on Twitter during regular season races at the road course at Watkins Glen International on Aug. 5, the night race at Bristol Motor Speedway Aug. 18, the sport’s annual throwback event at Darlington Raceway Sept. 2 and the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway Sept. 9.
This live stream will be accessible for free for logged-in and logged-out users in the United States via NASCAR’s official Twitter handle and connected devices. Real-time race highlights will also be available on @NASCAR, offering fans additional ways to follow the playoffs at home or on the go.
On the same screen of this live stream, fans will find a real-time curated timeline of Tweets that capture the best of the NASCAR race live conversation.
“We are thrilled to bring NASCAR’s unique in-car camera back to Twitter in 2018,” says Laura Froelich, global head of sports partnerships at Twitter.
“NASCAR fans will once again be able to watch this live streamed racing action at the same speed as the real-time conversation all in one place on Twitter.”
Last fall, 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Champion Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick and Brad Keselowski each scored race wins as the featured driver in the NASCAR Playoffs live stream, crossing the finish line and taking the checkered flag with viewers on Twitter in tow. will continue to offer its full portfolio of complementary viewing products throughout the 2018 season. In-car camera angles will also be available on NASCAR Drive and NASCAR Mobile.

NAB 2018: Artel Video Systems To Hold IP-Centric Demonstrations

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 17:23:46 -0400

Artel Video Systems is announcing plans for three active IP-centric media-delivery demonstrations at the 2018 NAB Show, showcasing the company’s expanding portfolio of solutions for SMPTE ST 2110, AES67; SMPTE ST 2022-7 hitless protection and ARQ RIST OTT streaming.
Artel will feature three integrated demo areas, each specifically designed to address customers’ unique requirements as they migrate toward all-IP or hybrid IP/SDI networks, while providing flexible and scalable solutions to meet their future needs as their networks grow.
SMPTE 2110, AES67 Audio-Over-IP Accuracy, Layer 2 and Layer 3 Network Routing
Artel will showcase an active end-to-end network highlighting the SMPTE ST 2110 and AES67 audio-over-IP accuracy capabilities of the Quarra PTP Ethernet switches. The demonstration will also highlight Layer 2 and Layer 3 network routing with the SMART Media Delivery Platform for reliable and accurate video, audio, and data transport. Interoperability with other IP-based solutions will be shown.
SMPTE 2022-7 Hitless Protection Switching
Artel will provide an interactive demonstration for attendees to test the SMPTE 2022-7 hitless protection switching capabilities in the SMART Media Delivery Platform. In addition, attendees will learn about the SMART software-enabled capabilities and advanced features and functionality.
OTT Streaming
The need for reliable delivery of high-quality media over unmanaged IP networks is on the rise in broadcast, campus networks, and other commercial OTT applications. At the 2018 NAB Show, Artel will showcase an active network demonstrating the delivery of video over an IP network featuring the ARQ IP Streaming System. The ARQ is a scalable solution and can quickly accommodate new streams to deliver multiple UDP unicast and multicast services.
Mobility in Newsgathering, Live Sports, First Response, and Aerial Surveillance
Capturing and transmitting live video for commercial and government applications is on the rise due to its cost- and timing-saving benefits. In a fourth demo area at the 2018 NAB Show, Artel will feature two tethered-drone concepts highlighting applications for news gathering, live sports, first responders, aerial surveillance, and military and defense operations.

FCC and FTC to Host Policy Forum and Consumer Expo to Fight Robocalls

Tue, 13 Mar 2018 17:38:52 -0400

The Federal Communications Commission and the Federal Trade Commission today announced two upcoming events aimed at furthering the fight against illegal robocalls and caller ID spoofing. The agencies will co-host a Policy Forum later this month and a Technology Expo in April.
Unwanted calls—including illegal robocalls, spoofed calls, and telemarketing—are a major source of complaints to both the FTC and FCC. Under FCC Chairman Ajit Pai and Acting FTC Chairman Maureen K. Ohlhausen, the agencies have combated this consumer problem through numerous policy-making efforts and strong enforcement actions.
On March 23, the two agencies will co-host a Policy Forum at FCC headquarters to discuss the regulatory challenges posed by illegal robocalls and what the FCC and FTC are doing to both protect consumers and encourage the development of private-sector solutions. The live video feed and other information related to this event will be available at: events/events/2018/03/fighting-scourge-illegal-robocalls.
On April 23, the FCC and FTC will also co-host a Technology Expo for consumers at the Pepco Edison Place Gallery in Washington, D.C. This event will feature technologies, devices, and applications to minimize or eliminate the illegal robocalls consumers receive. The FCC and FTC have worked closely with phone companies, tech innovators, and others to find solutions for consumers to the problems of illegal robocalls and malicious spoofing. More information on this Expo, including how innovators can seek to participate, will be available at:

FCC Chairman Pai Proposes $954 Million Plan For Puerto Rico and USVI

Thu, 08 Mar 2018 17:16:13 -0500

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai today proposed to direct approximately $954 million toward restoring and expanding communications networks in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands—networks that were damaged and destroyed during the 2017 hurricane season.
Specifically, he proposed to create a $750 million Uniendo a Puerto Rico Fund (Bringing Puerto Rico Together Fund) and a $204 million Connect USVI Fund. Each of these funds would provide additional short-term assistance for restoring communications networks in the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria and longer-term support for expanding broadband access throughout the islands.
The plan would be funded by providing approximately $256 million in new funds as well as repurposing universal service support currently directed to Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

ScopePrepared By The Markertek Engineering Department...

In our modern digital lives, we have an endless number of ways we use our computers, including using them to produce video. We may want to send full-screen output as video to a switcher or recorder to make training or demonstration videos. We may want to send just the output of one program as a video source like a dedicated text or graphics program specifically for broadcast production, or it could be a program used daily for common business or personal tasks.
Many broadcast production applications have adopted NewTek’s Network Device Interface (NDI) and are able to send their output to the network where any NDI-enabled production system can receive it. Products and applications that don’t yet include IP workflows can do so by using NewTek NDI Scan Converter, one of the applications in the free NewTek NDI Tools Pack.
