Three years after releasing its PavoTube LED lights, Nanlite has launched its second generation units, with extended colour capability, more durable construction, enhanced battery life and improved control. There are three sizes initially: the 60cm-long 35W PavoTube II 15X; 1.2m 70W PavoTube II 30X; and 2.4m 106W PavoTube II 60X – a size not previously available. They all now run RGBWW LEDs, compared to just RGB before, which increases the variety of colours they can generate (up to 36,000). Having additional white LEDs also improves the colour temperature range (now 2,700K to 12,000K, in 100K increments –

MANAGE Interra Systems BY DAVID FOX Pixel FX: The new PavoTube II units offer a variety of lighting effects

with green/magenta adjustment). Colour accuracy is high, with a Television Lighting Consistency Index rating of about 98. The tubes offer a variety of lighting effects, such as fl ash, pulse, storm, fi rework, explosion, or police car, as well as Pixel FX, including gradients, scrolling colours, multi-colour fade, fi re, rainbows or driving – the 15X has eight controllable pixels, 30X has 16 pixels and 60X has 32 pixels.

For control there is a new Nanlink iOS and Android app that works directly with the lights via Bluetooth. It can also be used via WiFi with the addition of an optional transmitter box. They also support wired DMX/RDM. Each unit includes a built-in battery, which can run the lights for more than two hours at full brightness (they have 0 to 100% dimming), as well as AC power supply.



The JPEG-XS Activity Group within the Video Services Forum (VSF), supporting industry interoperability, recently posted new technical recommendations. Chairing the group which updated the industry on interoperable WAN/LAN transport of JPEG XS compressed video, was John Dale, CMO of Media Links.

The newly announced VSF TR-07 Technical Recommendation defi nes profi les for streaming of JPEG XS video and establishes an interoperable method for transporting that compressed video along with associated audio and ancillary data across WAN networks in an MPEG- 2 Transport Stream. Also announced, the TR-08 Technical Recommendation is focused on LAN applications and defi nes profi les for streaming of JPEG XS video over SMPTE

ST-2110-22. It adds information for the interoperable transport of audio and ancillary data over other relevant ST-2110 standards. Both Technical

Recommendations defi ne interoperable capability sets which include multiple interoperability points for specifi c target applications. These applications could include typical broadcast 2K formats and frame rates, 4K and 8K resolutions including HDR and WCG, as well as multimedia extensions including RGB with 4:4:4 sampling, at both 8- and

12-bit depths. JPEG XS is being

implemented in many industry products and is available in several Media Links offerings, including the MDP3020 MAX IP Media Gateway. The latter supports up to four video channels using JPEG XS compression, which achieves bandwidth reduction ratios of up to 10:1 and beyond, visually lossless quality and sub-millisecond latency. The device can be used in various confi gurations, either separately or in combination due to its multichannel capability.

The PT-RE-2 RoboEye robotic 4K pan/tilt camera system has been updated with several new features, such as compatibility with Telemetrics’ reFrame Automated Shot Correction technology, and integration with a new teleprompter system that can track the talent across the set. RoboEye is a fully integrated

robotic PTZ camera system that includes a 4K digital camera with a 1in Exmor R CMOS sensor, zoom lens and built-in ND fi lters. It offers advanced servo motors and image stabilisation as well as a 50/60p (HD) frame rate. For the teleprompter, RoboEye is combined with an EP-6M Televator elevating pedestal and a teleprompter, giving studios a way to robotically pan and elevate to a

variety of heights, in sync with the talent as they move across the set. When paired with the latest

Telemetrics RCCP-2A Robotics and Camera Control Panel and optional STS Studio or LGS Legislative software packages, RoboEye leverages AI and facial recognition algorithms built into its reFrame Automatic Shot Correction technology to automatically keep talent in frame. The software locks the camera onto the talent and trims the shot, without the operator having to touch the controls.

The Orion 2110 Probe from Interra Systems supports the SMPTE ST-2110 standard for IP-based media workfl ows, to provide broadcasters with future-proof, end-to-end monitoring. It performs comprehensive

ST-2110 monitoring, including ST-2110 main and redundancy signals, and NMOS-based ST-2110 feed discovery in the network. It also addresses the diverse complexities and challenges of the SDI and IP environments, offering a simple, powerful approach to

content monitoring, especially for production and contribution applications.

Anupama Anantharaman,

VP product management, Interra Systems, said: “We have developed the Orion 2110 Probe with a smart feature set that includes validation of individual essences, SDP protocol checks and monitoring density, among others. Our customers will be able to ensure high quality and performance for SDI-IP streams and take full advantage of the fl exibility and benefi ts of ST-2110.” The Probe offers a set of REST APIs to ensure seamless integration with third-party software, including most network management systems, according to the company.
