The PTX Model 3 PRO pan/tilt head is the larger, more powerful and versatile successor to the company’s PTX Model 1, Model 1L and Model 2 heads that have been marketed worldwide since 2017. Due to supply line uncertainties and materials shortages, we elected to design and manufacture the PTX Model 3 PRO from the ground up. Now built in Texas, USA, this head addresses the expanding need for a more robust platform capable of handling dimensions and payloads of cameras and lenses from virtually all manufacturers.

To maximize compatibility with a wide range of PTZ controllers, the PTX Model 3 PRO uses VISCA over IP communications protocol, extracting pan and tilt-related commands for controlling speed and direction. This assures that even non-technical volunteers will be able to operate it right out of the box. All joystick and presets incorporate smooth speed ramps that simulate what you expect from a skilled operator using a camera on a high-quality fluid head.

Marshall Electronics, an industry leading developer and manufacturer of Broadcast proAV video equipment, debuts the CV620-TBI PTZ camera at the 2022 IBC Show (Stand 11.C23). Designed to auto-track and follow presenters using more natural Pan/Tilt/Zoom movement methods with AI accuracy, the CV620-TBI uses new facial recognition technology and intelligently learns motion dynamics of the subject and anticipates movement. This removes much of the guess work for camera intelligence reducing late or inaccurate maneuvers that require corrective adjustment, greatly minimizing viewer fatigue and motion sickness.

The CV620-TBI (black) and CV620-TWI (white) PTZ cameras are built around new highly sensitive Sony sensor technology with 20x optical zoom range of 5~110mm starting at roughly 60° angle-of-view. The CV620-TBI delivers outstanding color reproduction with exceptional detail even in challenging light environments. These new PTZ cameras feature simultaneous HD outputs of 3GSDI, HDMI and IP ethernet connectivity with up to 1920x1080p resolution at 60fps. Also boasting a flexible 340° horizontal range of movement and 120° vertical tilt, the CV620-TBI provides a large reachable viewing area for the new auto-tracking feature.

Wisycom Srl announces its new Wisycom BFL1 RF-over-fiber interface, which will debut at IBC 2022 (Stand 8.D78). A compact, easy-to-set-up module, the BFL1 is an entirely new way for users to support RF coverage and distribution requirements without concern for cable loss. Expanding on Wisycom’s existing RF-over-fiber solutions, the BFL1 features selectable filters, expanded dynamic range, and a long-range Bluetooth 5 programming link. Replacing the need for larger devices that historically supported RF-over-fiber, the single-unit BFL offers the same robustness in a more compact and cost-effective package.

“RF-over-fiber systems can be challenging for users in stadiums, events, large facilities and remote productions, but the Wisycom BFL1 module simplifies the process,” explains Leslie Lello, Wisycom’s Support Manager. “The BFL1 can be easily configured by operators directly through the module’s high-contrast OLED display with navigation buttons. It will also soon be controllable through the Wisycom App, which eliminates the need for network connectivity.”

Artel Video Systems to Demo SMART Media Delivery Platform, the Ultimate in IP Networking Flexibility, at IBC2022

In home_page, Image, Product News, Uncategorized, Video/Broadcast, Video/Broadcast Product News, Web Articlesby admin

Artel Video Systems, a world-class provider of innovative, real-time multimedia delivery solutions, today announced its product highlights for IBC2022 in Amsterdam. On Stand 1C99, the company will feature products that simplify broadcasters’ shift to hybrid IP/SDI and all-IP operations. Visitors can get hands-on demonstrations of the SMART Multimedia Delivery Platform in DigiLink/InfinityLink configurations and the award-winning SMART Multimedia Delivery Platform in openGear® (SMART OG).

“While IP networking opens up a world of possibility for innovative new broadcast workflows, it’s also inherently more complicated than traditional networking. Relying on purpose-built hardware that is not reprogrammable, means broadcasters have the expensive and time-consuming task of swapping out hardware every time they need to change functionality,” said Rafael Fonseca, Vice President of Product Management at Artel Video Systems. “Our modular, software-defined systems counteract that problem. At IBC2022, broadcasters will see how Artel products can greatly increase operational flexibility and reduce effort as they transition to IP and move to optimize their IP-based operations and workflows.”
