AJA Ki Pro Rack Delivers Spot-On Recording for BlueScreen Every Time giovedý, 24 Luglio 2014 - 09:38 PM - 7 Months, 1 ago - 20 Letture - top stories - 1-CreativeCow (Grass Valley, California--July 24, 2014) Launching a successful business out of a natural talent for compositing, Bob Kertesz founded BlueScreen LLC three decades ago. The company specializes in live, on-set blue/green screen compositing and multi-cam productions for high profile gaming companies and studios such as EA, Disney, Warner Brothers and Viacom. A core component of BlueScreen’s business involves live blue/green screen compositing for press events prior to the launch of major films, and for this niche market, Kertesz has established a specialized setup comprising high-end cameras and Ultimatte® hardware, with AJA’s Ki Pro Rack at the center of the workflow for reliable recording and playback. At each media event, Kertesz is given an average of seven hours to direct, live composite and record more than sixty journalist interviews. The studio typically provides him with an animated environment and characters from the film it is promoting. Kertesz then works his compositing magic to insert each reporter into the scene, so it appears as though he or she is interviewing the animated characters. Upon wrapping the day, each journalist leaves with a Compact Flash card containing the segment in his or her requested format.
Eight Different Functions On One Board With Crystal Vision's SYNNER 310 giovedý, 24 Luglio 2014 - 05:51 PM - 7 Months, 1 ago - 20 Letture - top stories - 1-CreativeCow (Cambridge, United Kingdom--July 24, 2014) SYNNER 310 is Crystal Vision's most multi-functional product yet. Working with 3Gb/s, HD and SD sources and both AES and analogue audio, SYNNER 310 combines a video synchroniser, tracking audio delay, embedder, de-embedder, audio processor, video proc-amp and Dolby encoder or decoder – all on one board to simplify system designs and save engineers money and rack space. These eight functions can either be used separately as required, or can be used all together to create a very powerful product able to fulfil any timing, embedding and de-embedding requirements. SYNNER 310 is fundamentally a video synchroniser. It can both synchronise incoming video signals which are not locked to the local reference – taking its timing from the external analogue reference and automatically synchronising sources between 0 and 1 frame – and compensate for timing delays within the video system, ideal for when the frame rate is correct but the source has been passed through equipment and therefore been delayed for a few lines. The ability to cross-lock allows it to conveniently use any available timing signals, with a 3Gb/s, HD or SD input referenced to either HD tri-level syncs or SD Black and Burst. SYNNER 310 includes tracking audio delay functionality to help maintain lip-sync, running the audio fast or slow to ensure the video and audio stay correctly timed. In addition, SYNNER 310 offers a flexible range of video and audio delays to help match all the signals – including up to ten frames of video and audio delay to match any big system delays.
