Console is star Performer Soundcraft (Harman)

The inclusion of integrated DMX functionality in the Soundcraft Si Performer mixer range adds light- ing control options to the existing audio feature set. The Si Performer builds upon the Si Compact range, to which it bears a likeness, providing almost twice as much DSP power and increased functionality, with an input capacity of 80 inputs to mix on all models.

The built-in I/O delivers the

following: 24 mic and eight line inputs (Si Performer 2), or 32 mic and eight line inputs (Si Performer 3), plus the four FX return chan- nels. Meanwhile, the provision of

two option card slots allows I/O expansion via any of the Sound- craft stageboxes and option cards from the Soundcraft ViSi Connect range, giving the possibility of patching up to 80 inputs to mix, or from CobraNet, Aviom or AES inputs via the appropriate cards. Core lighting control is offered

by the integration of a DMX512 port. The first release of software provides four scene masters (A-D) with associated slave channels on the ALT fader layers. Individual colour intensities or parameters are set on the slave faders with an over- all master level fader, which itself may be assigned to any of the main fader layers for simultaneous access to audio and lighting levels.


snapshot system can store DMX set- tings alongside audio set- tings, so both can be recalled automatically by a single button press or via external MIDI com- mand. With selective isolation, snapshots with just audio or light- ing changes may be recalled. Audio features include fully parametric four-band EQ on all input channels, as well as BSS

This is in addition to the already standard filters, gates, compressors and delays on all inputs, and com- pressors and delays on all outputs. Stand: 1-M22

New super-thin screen body Shenzhen Q-Color Technology

The recently launched Q-Silk Series from Shenzhen Q-Color Technology for the high-end LED display market is described as offering the thinnest screen body in the world. With a new P10mm soft LED strip, a new P16mm soft LED screen and a P80mm LED mesh display, the Q-Silk Series is aimed at stage backgrounds, live shows,

fashion shows, forums, TV studios or concert fields. In-built dissipation technol-

ogy allows the screens to work without the need for fans or air- conditioning. The series offers a modular design and can be rolled to 360º, allowing shape and pixel pitch changes. The screens are described as convenient to package and light to transport.

A P4mm die-casting alu- minium rental LED display will also be on display at the stand. Stand: 11-F76

Multiformat video mixer Roland Systems Group

The V-40HD multi-format live video switcher from Roland is designed for any live event or installation that requires the free- dom to connect a variety of ana- logue or digital sources to either computer or video format, and is particularly positioned to sup- port configurations using HDMI cameras. The V-40HD supports both MIDI and RS-232, and handles true multiformat video, which means there is no need to match input sources to the output reso- lution; every input has its own broadcast-quality scaler that individually scales each source as required to fit any output resolution chosen. It boasts 12 inputs on four

channels, and two output busses with independent scalers on the inputs and outputs, allowing the user to connect HDMI/DVI, RGB, component and composite sources.

It supports input/output reso-

lutions up to 1080p60 and 1920x1200 and is HDCP compli- ant, which allows users to mix copy-protected game and Blu-ray content with other computer and camera sources. It also features an input

source, multi-viewer output that provides a convenient monitor- ing solution when connected to an HDMI monitor, and an audio input bus with vol- ume and

The Multi-Zoom feature can be enabled when one input source is shared internally with up to three more inputs – essen- tially daisy-chaining it. The scaler for each input can zoom into any position in the video image, giv- ing the appearance that addi- tional cameras are connected and creating a virtual multi-camera environment.

The P80mm LED mesh is lightweight, extremely thin and transparent, and cuts transport and labour costs

Featured on the AVerMedia stand is the AVerCaster Combo. According to the company, it can stream live TV and video to an unlimited number of users via LAN, making it a more cost-effec- tive solution for small and medium-sized enterprises than a traditional coax- or aerial-based TV/video distri- bution system.

Capable of distributing HD digital TV, analogue TV and a range of video content, it can support a range of client devices such as Win- dows, Mac and Linux com- puters, IP-STBs, kiosks, digital signage deployments and hospital infotainment devices. It is equipped with a web-based content control interface. Each AVerCaster Combo unit can be configured to broadcast two different TV/video sources. At a weight of less than 1kg, it is also portable, giving users a high degree of flexibility in deployment. Stand: 8-D225

dela y settings , allowing users to embed audio into the HDMI output signal.

The Ki Pro Quad is a solid-state portable video recorder from AJA Video Systems that can capture high-quality edit-ready files in formats including 4K (4096x2160), Quad HD (3840x2160), 2K (2048x1080), and HD (1920x1080), for what the company says is the fastest path from camera to editorial with 10-bit 4:4:4 and 10-bit 4:2:2 colour support. “I believe a Ki Pro Quad, a Canon EOS C500 and a Thunder- bolt-enabled Mac will revolutionise the indus- try, delivering a power- ful, portable and cost-effective gear solution for pre- mium Hollywood filmmakers,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Commu- nications Group, Canon USA.

eases workflow AJA

Ki Pro Quad is said to help facilitate a powerful workflow for 4K, accepting RAW camera output via SDI, simultaneously out- putting that data via Thunderbolt. The recorder also performs debayer processing of the RAW data that can be used to produce on- board Apple ProRes recordings to SSD media. “We have been work-

ing very closely with Canon headquarters in Japan to optimise per- formance between Canon’s upcoming Cin- ema EOS C500 digital cinema camera and our Ki Pro Quad,” said Nick Rashby, president, AJA Video Systems. “Ki Pro

Quad offers some amazing new ways of working; by creating post- friendly files to removable SSDs, moving the original camera RAW files to a Mac, and allowing 4K monitoring all at the same time.” Stand: 8-R245
