AVIXA Releases Rack Building Standard for Audiovisual Systems

Mon, 24 Sep 2018 17:18:28 -0400

Audiovisual and Integrated Experience Association, AVIXA has announced the release of its newest standard, Rack Building for Audiovisual Systems (F502.01:2018), which details the requirements for integrating AV systems into racks by providing a process for consistent assembly, mounting, and cable management.
This standard covers the fundamental elements of building a reliable AV equipment rack, including:
Assembly of AV equipment racks, associated options, and accessories in single and multi-rack installations.
Mounting and affixing of rack-mount and non-rack-mount AV equipment.
Cable management, including planning, lacing, location, and separation of signal and power cables for cable management entering and within racks.
Final cleaning, labeling, and finishing of the AV rack build.
Planning for the use of this standard should begin during the project design phase and be implemented in conjunction with a fully-developed project documentation package. This standard does not cover design elements; therefore, the AV system design should be documented prior to beginning the rack building.
AVIXA’s forthcoming standard AV Rack Design will outline the requirements for AV planning, design, accommodation, and equipment layout. The standard will be published in 2019.

Rosenworcel Launches New Podcast Focused On Women In Technology

Thu, 20 Sep 2018 17:03:59 -0400

Today, Federal Communications Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel launched “Broadband Conversations,” a podcast dedicated to highlighting women who are making an impact on our digital lives. Each episode, Commissioner Rosenworcel will talk to women who are breaking new ground and forging new paths in technology, media, and innovation about what they’re working on, what’s on their minds, what they think is the next for the future.
“Women are almost half the labor force in this country yet only hold barely a quarter of jobs in science, technology, engineering and math fields. I’m reminded of this fact when I go into boardrooms, classrooms, or meeting rooms—there are not enough women at the table. Because there are just too few, it’s time to amplify women’s voices from across the technology and innovation sectors.”
The first episode, featuring Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, was released today. In the episode, Commissioner Rosenworcel and Senator Cortez Masto discuss about how we can get more girls coding, how our cities can be smarter, and why getting connected and online is essential for everyone to have a fair shot at 21st century success.
Broadband Conversations can be found at the FCC, iTunes, Google Podcasts on Android, and GooglePlay.
Additional episodes will feature Kimberly Bryant, founder of Black Girls Code, Shireen Santosham, CIO of San Jose, California, Maya Wiley, Professor of Urban Policy and Management at the New School, and Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey.

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.
