Barix Real-Time Clock Keeps Devices Ticking

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND, December 3, 2012 — Audio over IP pioneer Barix addresses network downtime with its new Real-Time Clock accessory, ensuring that audio and control devices continue operating uninterrupted during network failures — keeping mission-critical operations for broadcast radio, streaming media, building automation and other applications on time.

The market-agnostic, self-sustaining reference clock plugs into any device with an RS232 serial port, including but not limited to Barix IP audio and control products. The Barix Real-Time Clock (RTC) maintains time, even when unpowered, for years. This allows the RTC to provide time information immediately after a device startup, independent of a network-based time reference.

“Barix devices are normally network-connected and receive the time through that connection, but what if, after a power outage, the network connection remains down?” asks Johannes G. Rietschel, CEO and founder of Barix AG. “It’s a serious concern if your operation requires time-dependent logging or control. The Barix Real-Time Clock provides that time source to maintain operations.”

Rietschel points to specific examples for streaming media and building automation. Retail businesses, for example, often operate “Store and Play” systems for in-store audio that are programmed to run time-based announcements and playlists. The Barix Real-Time Clock allows the device to work offline without network connection, playing out audio messages and time-sensitive content on time. Similarly, broadcasters streaming syndicated programs with local network IDs, jingles, ads and promos can trigger events on schedule without affecting the on-air content.

For building automation, Rietschel notes that Barix Barionet IP control devices can use the RTC to gain independence from network time references, continuing to switch lights and boilers on and off if the network goes south. This ensures that energy-saving techniques for schools, businesses and other facilities continue without disruption.

“The overarching benefit for any operation is that your devices can read the time from the RTC and run critical programs as scheduled,” he said. “It’s a low-cost accessory that can make a big difference.”

Barix will show the Real-Time Clock along with its latest one-way and two-way IP audio devices at the ISE show in Amsterdam, taking place January 29-31, 2012 at the RAI Exhibition Center (Booth #2-E64).

Stratus Broadcast Solutions Taps Myers to Manage PBS Content

Northampton, MA – Myers Information Systems – a respected developer of broadcast traffic, business, and content management software – today announced a successful integration of the company’s flagship ProTrack™ Television suite at the central hub facility of Stratus Broadcast Solutions in Davenport, Iowa. The Myers installation supports WYCC, a Chicago area PBS member station which recently hired Stratus to provide master control and trafficking services.

The complex project was completed on-schedule, despite an extremely tight three week timeframe. Using the company’s cloud-based ProHost solution, Myers temporarily assumed responsibility for program scheduling and trafficking services while fine tuning the interface between Stratus and WYCC. The live ProTrack database, along with day-to-day on-air responsibility for WYCC, was then transitioned to a physical server in the Stratus facility.

“The Joint Master Control (JMC) service model has become a core operational option in both the commercial and public television station communities. The efficiencies of the shared services infrastructure reduces the capital need and creates an innovative profitability model for the local broadcaster,” said Marc Jaromin, Stratus president and CEO. “We were fortunate to partner with
Myers – their professionalism and experience in the public television sector really helped to make a smooth and efficient transition for all concerned.”

“I’m very proud of our team,” said Crist Myers, company CEO and president. “They successfully, provided an interim workflow during the transition from WYCC to Stratus, and ‘transplanted’ the live ProTrack system onto Stratus’s servers – typically a six-weeks or more undertaking – all in a record-breaking three weeks … and they got it all done during the annual PBS and NAB conventions!”

Myers’ proven flagship suite, ProTrack, is available in both radio and television editions. It offers comprehensive scheduling and business management for individual, multichannel and multi-station facilities. Actively used by more than 226 media outlets, supporting more than 1,300 channels, ProTrack provides a high-level of structure, scalability, and systems integration for today’s rapidly evolving media environments.

StreamGuys Expands Digital Media Footprint for The Radio Network of New Zealand

Company’s cloud-based streaming architecture helps large broadcaster target mobile devices to foster network-wide audience growth

BAYSIDE, CALIFORNIA, November 28, 2012 – Content delivery network and streaming media provider StreamGuys Inc. now supports all live and on-demand audio streaming for The Radio Network (TRN) of New Zealand — helping one of the nation’s largest broadcasters improve audio quality and expand its streaming footprint beyond the desktop.

TRN operates 124 stations in 25 markets across the country, offering seven distinct brands that broadcast news, talk, sports and music. The broadcaster migrated to StreamGuys based on its desire to move into mobile streaming, which it identifies as a key growth area. TRN has since launched iPhone and Android mobile streams for key brands and stations, with StreamGuys delivering multiple services including program audio and branded apps developed by Jacobs Media.

“We see streaming media as an important platform for radio as listening moves to other devices,” said Carolyn Luey, Group General Manager for digital at The Radio Network. “Our strategy for digital is to increase the number of touchpoints into our audience. The mobile smartphone is a critical part of this strategy.”

Luey notes that StreamGuys helps TRN deliver “the full radio experience” through live audio and video streaming. StreamGuys’ ability to support multiple audio formats over its cloud-based streaming architecture has simplified TRN’s workload, eliminating multiple format transcoding steps from their side.

“StreamGuys transcodes our streams into all the formats we need for delivery to many devices, including mobile,” said Wayne Sleeman, broadcast engineering manager at The Radio Network. “This would not have been possible with our previous streaming architecture.”

Sleeman and Luey both express that audio quality has improved since migrating to StreamGuys, offering live mp3 and HE-AAC streams to all listeners. Reliability has also improved through StreamGuys’ cloud-based architecture, which supports high availability, strong redundancy and flexibility to scale on short notice.

The scalability aspect is one that especially resonates with Sleeman. “There is a lot of flexibility to the StreamGuys architecture,” he said. “I can have a new stream up and configured by StreamGuys within a couple of hours and without a lot of aggravation.”

The flexibility of the StreamGuys architecture extends to video, which TRN has just started to explore. The broadcaster launched a live DJ stream for its NewsTalk ZB format that is gradually building numbers — with Luey adding that stronger video emphasis is likely as more homes throughout New Zealand add fiber connections.

StreamGuys is also providing a comprehensive business software package through it architecture with detailed reporting and monitoring services. The two primary resources are SGMon, a concurrency monitoring service that provides per-stream data; and SGReports, which provides richer audience details within custom reports.

“The ability to help our customers reliably reach more devices and strategize future growth neatly summarizes the role of a full-service streaming media provider in today’s broadcast market,” said Jonathan Speaker, COO, StreamGuys. “The Radio Network of New Zealand is an ideal example of how radio broadcasters are expanding their streaming media footprint into mobile and video to reach more listeners and entertain audiences in fresh ways.”

About The Radio Network (TRN)
The Radio Network operates 124 stations in New Zealand under nine brands including Newstalk ZB, ZM, Classic Hits, Radio Sport, Radio Hauraki, Coast and Flava. The Radio Network is jointly owned by Clear Channel Media + Entertainment and APN News and Media through Australian Radio Network. (www.radionetwork.co.nz)

Harris Broadcast Hires Thomason, Expands North American Radio Sales Territories

DENVER, November 27, 2012 — Harris Broadcast has reconfigured its radio broadcast sales territories in North America to maximize regional impact. The changes include the hiring of Jim Thomason, a 30-year veteran in the radio broadcast industry.

Jim Thomason will represent the southeast U.S. territory for Harris Broadcast

Thomason, who had previously worked for Harris as a district sales manager, will return to the company and focus on the southeast U.S. region. The move will shift long-time regional sales manager Garrett Wood to the northwest region, including Alaska and western Canada. Both Thomason and Wood will maintain the high level of sales and service that customers expect in these regions, while building relationships with new customers.

“With Jim’s hiring, we have taken the opportunity to shift sales responsibilities in a way that leverages the regional strengths of our existing sales representatives in the United States and Canada,” said Mark Goins, Manager, North American radio sales, Harris Broadcast Communications. “We had a unique opportunity in the northwest and Garrett stepped up to the challenge, as he has experience in this territory. We believe that the changes will benefit our customers in every region.”

Thomason has worked in radio since he was 16, giving him a keen insight into customer challenges and how to effectively offer solutions. He most recently served as a regional sales manager for SCMS, Inc., which is an external North American sales channel for Harris PR&E studio systems.

“Harris has set a gold standard of what customers expect in terms of products and service,” said Thomason. “My biggest challenge is making sure that customers understand how what they are buying today can play a significant role in their facility years from now. Harris has always had remarkable insight into understanding what lies ahead for the industry, and developing solutions with the future in mind.”

Goins, who also handles Midwest U.S. sales, notes that other long-time regional sales managers Ron Lane and Brian Szewczyk will see territory expansions as well. The complete breakdown follows:

Ethiopia’s National Radio Provider Goes Digital With Radio-Assist(TM) 8

ERTA Migrates to File-Based Operation and Creates Disaster Recovery Facility

CLARET, France — Nov. 21, 2012 — NETIA, a leading software manufacturer of media asset management and radio automation solutions, today announced that the Ethiopian Radio and Television Agency (ERTA) is using Radio-Assist(TM) 8 to overhaul and upgrade its nationwide radio service. ERTA, which broadcasts daily in the 11 languages spoken by ethnic groups among the country’s population, is implementing a project to boost its transmission coverage and migrate from tape to file-based operations.

Local integrator United System Integrators (USI) has worked with ERTA to create a new workflow based around Radio-Assist 8, encompassing all stages from production to broadcast, including acquisition, sound file editing, scheduling, multicasting, and administration. The architecture of the system includes a centralized archiving facility into which ERTA’s library of 50,000 hours of tape-based content is being digitized. To provide continuity in case of interruption to the main system ERTA is creating a disaster recovery site with duplicated content for additional security.

Thirty workstations equipped with Radio-Assist 8 will offer ERTA’s production staff of 150 journalists and editors access to the full range of the system’s production tools, and to the content archive and index. To provide an efficient working environment for ERTA’s multi-lingual staff, the Radio-Assist 8 system supports eight different languages used by production teams.

“Radio-Assist 8 is at the core of our new production system, and gives us the ability to move to a very efficient and flexible way of making radio programs,” said Haileab Abrha, deputy director general and head of media technology for ERTA. “The system fits easily into our existing broadcasting environment and the ability to use multiple languages in the interface makes it very flexible for our staff.”

“Radio-Assist 8 is the ideal platform for a broadcaster like ERTA to move from analog to digital operations,” said Michael Shebelle, general manager, USI. “With the access to the digitized archive that Radio-Assist 8 provides, and its range of production tools, ERTA’s staff will be able to greatly increase the quality and efficiency of their work.”

Clear-Com Takes The University Of Salford To The Head Of The Class

Eclipse Matrix, V-Series Panels and FreeSpeak Integra Wireless System
Enable Communications Across The Multilevel Facility

SALFORD, UK, 21 NOVEMBER, 2012Clear-Com, a global leader in critical voice communication systems, is allowing students at the University of Salford’s £30-million digital learning, teaching and research facility at MediaCityUK to communicate like production professionals. Students and staff across the multilevel campus use Clear-Com’s Eclipse-Median digital matrix intercom system, V-Series lever key-panels and FreeSpeak digital wireless beltpacks to coordinate the productions of one-on-one interviews, news programmes, panel discussions and music series.

The Clear-Com installation at the University has vastly improved production workflow with a set of intercom systems at every key communication position in the facility. The new building is made up of three floors, and nearly every room on each of those floors either has a V-Series key-panel or FreeSpeak wireless beltpack. This includes the editing and post-production spaces located on the second floor and two live TV studios—Studios A and B—along with the galleries and a digital performance lab on the ground level. All beltpack and panels are routed through the Eclipse-Median matrix. This gives students and staff immediate access to communications wherever they are located in the building, whenever it is needed.

“In our old facility, we didn’t have a system for multilevel, group conversations,” says Ash Tidball, TV Studio Manager for the University of Salford at MediaCityUK. “Our previous intercom was very simple. You were in the studio, you had four channels, and you could talk to each other in that studio, and that was it. Coming into the new building, we wanted a system that would allow us to converse in different areas of the site, but without the crosstalk that might occur due to our close proximity to the BBC. The main goal was being able to talk to whomever we needed to, without interference.”

The Clear-Com equipment has accomplished this for Tidball, his colleagues and students. Not only does the FreeSpeak integration to the matrix offer up to 40 wireless beltpack users, but it also provides six channels per beltpack for many group and point-to-point connections.

“We have the Clear-Com system set up so we can talk just to production, sound or the floor techs,” adds Tidball. “Or we can select all three of those groups and speak with them all at the same time. It’s a very expansive system.”

Operating within the license-free 1.8GHz-1.93 GHz frequency band, away from the crowded spectrum where other wireless devices operate, FreeSpeak delivers a reliable, uninterrupted signal. FreeSpeak also combines DECT and wireless auto-roaming technologies to allow users to move about the campus freely without fading or losing connection.

The Clear-Com Eclipse is highly modular, a key specification Tidball and his colleagues had wanted in the intercom system for the new facility. The Eclipse and IP-enabled V-Series panels operate on the facility’s Ethernet and fibre network, making future upgrades simple. Further, the Eclipse Configuration Software (ECS) simplifies programming and automates the setup of intercom communications. This is especially useful in the frenetically paced work environment, where operators may not always have time to manually program the system. Staff members can also log onto the ECS through any of the main terminals in the building, conveniently changing inputs and outputs as needed.

“The University of Salford’s educational facility at MediaCityUK marks a major milestone in broadcast education in the UK, establishing what will no doubt become a premier training ground for the country’s future top broadcasters,” says Dan Muchmore, Regional Sales Manager, UK, Ireland and Scandinavia, Clear-Com. “Clear-Com is proud that this prestigious institution has selected the Eclipse-Median and FreeSpeak intercoms to train its students in professional production communications.”

About Clear-Com
Clear-Com, an HME company, is the global leader in critical voice communication systems for professional productions. Since 1968, Clear-Com has developed and marketed a comprehensive range of analogue, digital and IP-based wired and wireless intercom technologies for party-line and point-to-point communications. Recognised for our legacy of intercom innovations, production teams around the world have come to depend on Clear-Com for clear, reliable and scalable communication solutions.

DIFFUSING / SCATTERING SOUND: Sound Diffusion Explained

Acoustic Diffuser DemonstrationAcoustics First has just released another in a series of videos to help explain acoustical principles using simple, easy to understand video demonstrations. This latest demonstration tackles the mystery of acoustic sound diffusion. Using an array of ping pong balls to represent sound visually, this video simply demonstrates what occurs when sound strikes the surface of an acoustic diffuser. First, you will see what happens when sound hits a flat reflective surface with no acoustical treatment. Acoustic Sound DiffuserThe balls all bounce at the same time and in the same direction. This represents what happens to the sound when it hits a flat reflective surface like a wall. Then you see what happens when sound hits an acoustic sound diffuser. You will immediately notice the energy of the wave of balls is scattered in all different directions as well as deflected at different time intervals. Diffusers, disperse or scatter the sound like crowd control, preserving the sound to maintain sound clarity without destructive interference. This is the basic principle behind acoustic sound diffusion.
