ROSCO is not a new company in the lighting industry and is well known for its light filters and other entertainment and lighting solutions. Now, after their recent acquisition of LED lighting specialist DMG Lumière, they presented their new LED fixture at this year’s NAB show, called the MIX.

The MIX will initially be available in two sizes – the MINI and the SL1 – followed by the release of the third size , namely the MAXI. These sizes have the same parameters as used with the older LED panels by DMG Lumière (the Switch line). The MIX has three different functionality modes:

  • The white mode offers a wide range of tunable white light, from daylight to tungsten, along with green/magenta correction.
  • The color mode enables users to adjust hue, saturation using the 360° hue wheel — with the ability to desaturate colors to either daylight or tungsten — and intensity, including a dimming curve.
  • The gel mode allows users to select a Rosco gel from a vast library of gels and modify the gel’s hue, saturation, and green/magenta shift as needed.

What I think is very innovative about MIX is the amount of remote controlling and the cool, smart features. The company developed the so called myMIX app for smartphones to control the MIX LED fixtures. Users can choose a color from the color palette or capture a color by photographing it with a mobile phone, then save the color and transfer it wirelessly to the MIX fixture. The app controls → continue…

NAB 2018: JVC Debuts 4K HDR, 4K-Compatible LCD Studio Monitors

By Posted by Jody Michelle Solis, Editor

JVC Professional Video, a division of JVCKENWOOD USA Corporation, today announced two new series of studio LCD monitors to support today’s growing 4K workflows. Available in two models, the DT‑U series provides native 4K resolution with 10-bit color depth and HDR compatibility. The four models in the more economical DT‑G series convert 4K and 2K sources to full HD. The new monitors will be demonstrated during the 2018 NAB Show (Booth C4315), which runs through April 12 in Las Vegas, Nev.

The 28-inch DT-U28U and 31.5-inch DT-U31U feature native 4K LCD panels with 3840×2160 resolution, LED backlight, wider color gamut, and HLG HDR and PQ HDR display for realistic imagery. Both monitors feature multiple 4K inputs, including 12G-SDI, 3G-SDI quad link, 4K/60p HDMI 2.0, and optional plug-in SFP adapter. Users can also display four independent SDI sources in quad view mode, and there are extensive connectivity options for legacy sources. The DT-U31E supports 100 percent DCI-P3 and 84 percent ITU-R BT.2020 color gamut, while the DT-U28E supports 100 percent Rec.709 and 80 percent DCI-P3 color gamut.

With sizes ranging from 17.3 to 27 inches, DT-G series monitors support 4K/60p HDMI and 2K-SDI signals. Each 8-bit panel has 10-bit signal processing and LED backlight, with the three largest models offering 1000:1 contrast ratio.

Designed for critical video applications, both the DT-G and DT-U series are equipped with a new zero latency image processing mode with only a few lines of delay, which is ideal for lip sync monitoring. Both series also feature 3D LUT 17x17x17 precise auto calibration, with built-in color generator and calibration software, and support user uploaded 3DLUT cube files, which are convenient for color creation in post. Plus, with several built-in De-log LUTs (including JVC J-log1), the monitors can convert directly to ITU-Rec.709.

All models feature a built-in auto → continue…

New SmartPanel From Riedel Redefines How a Keypanel Should Look and Feel, Enables Multiple Workflows

By Dundee Hills Group

LAS VEGAS April 9, 2018 — Building upon the technology that powers its SmartPanel app-driven user interfaces, Riedel Communications proudly introduced the new 1200 series SmartPanel today. Making its debut at the 2018 NAB Show, the RSP-1232HL represents a quantum leap forward in workflow flexibility, power, and connectivity. Featuring multiple full-color multitouch displays, 32 innovative hybrid-lever keys, the ability to leverage apps for multifunctionality, and the ability to adapt easily to the various workflows in use today, this new panel is poised to allow users to work the way they always have while opening up entirely new possibilities.

The two-year research and development effort behind the RSP-1232HL panel involved input from many users and industry pros. Every aspect of existing panel technology was evaluated, from the spacing of components to their look and feel. The result is a 32-key user interface with each lever key having an integrated rotary encoder that provides control over parameters in the same location as the key. The levers have been meticulously designed to have the perfect form, weight, comfort, responsiveness, and anti-fatigue qualities to effectively redefine the way an intercom panel should feel.

The RSP-1232HL has been designed to support varied workflows. Some comms users prefer “Talk & Listen” workflows where the user chooses what to listen to from an initially silent panel. Other workflows prefer a “Talk & Mute” workflow where users start with a panel that broadcasts everything, with the users selectively choosing which signals to turn off. Users decide which mode they prefer on a per-panel basis.

Inventing a panel from scratch also enables new features that greatly aid in making the panel easier to understand for users. Riedel’s new Logical Groups concept allows users to choose custom colors for either the key labels or the LED rings that are positioned around each → continue…

Chris Buchanan to Present Keynote at 2018 NAB Show’s Future of Cinema Conference, Produced in Partnership With SMPTE

By Dundee Hills Group

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — March 29, 2018 — SMPTE®, the organization whose standards work has supported a century of advances in entertainment technology and whose membership spans the globe, today announced that Chris Buchanan, director of new business development at Samsung Electronics America, will present the keynote at the 2018 NAB Show’s Future of Cinema Conference, produced in partnership with SMPTE. The conference will take place April 7-8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

“It’s an honor to be a keynote speaker at the Future of Cinema Conference, especially during this exciting time as new innovations shape the future of cinemagoers,” said Buchanan. “Cinemas are transforming from movie houses into immersive entertainment experiences, attracting younger generations while still delivering quality programs that appeal to longtime audiences. At Samsung, we’re eager to continue developing technologies that deepen the cinematic experience, and I look forward to sharing my perspective on the nature and impact of emerging technologies for cinema.”

Scheduled for 9:55 a.m. on Sunday, April 8, Buchanan’s keynote will speak to the future of moving pictures — as technologies ranging from LED screens to sensory immersion transform the viewing experience. Likewise exploring the future of movie-making and media consumption, additional conference sessions will dive deep into shifting models and opportunities for monetization, featuring hot topics such as next-gen cinema, high-dynamic-range (HDR), and immersive media (AR/VR/MR).

“Chris has a rich history as a media executive, having managed companies, content and artists, as well as the strategic partnerships, technologies and consumer engagement tactics critical to revenue generation in today’s media marketplace,” said Barbara Lange, SMPTE executive director. “He is a wonderful addition to a strong conference program, and we’re excited to hear his thoughts on the future of media and how we’ll get there.”

Prior to joining Samsung, Buchanan served in business development, sales and marketing roles → continue…
