Headed to IBC? Even with five days, you'll be hard-pressed to cover all the sessions and the convention exhibition floor. However, to help readers get a head start, the editors of Broadcast Engineering's World Edition have sifted through hundreds of new product announcements in order to highlight some of the products you'll see on the show floor.

The products shown here represent but a small sample of the key technologies and new services you'll see at the convention. Based on the number of press releases we've already received, you can expect to find thousands of new products being shown from more than 1000 exhibitors.

If you'd like a more interactive interface with this IBC Special Report, visit the Broadcast Engineering Web site. There, you'll find each new product, complete with a description and a hot link back to the manufacturer's Web site.

Finally, to make your convention floor time more enjoyable and efficient, don't forget to use the Broadcast Engineering map, which is located in our August issue. Your feet will appreciate it! Now, read on for some of the new products you'll find at this year's IBC.

Panther's new EvoPlus — top of the line

Panther's Evolution might well be the most complex dolly in the world. Without doubt, though, it offers options and technical preconditions like no other camera dolly. To know the Evolution dolly is a proof of competence which qualifies the dolly grip to work with any other dolly.The new EvoPlus is the successor of the Evolution and it displays some decisive advantages: the body as well as the crab and steer mechanism became reinforced, a new plug connection on the control cable protects the cable much better, optional H wheels come with a new brake system and a 360∞ rotatable Euro mount is part of the unit. Last but not least it is the long lasting design which provides for longer service intervals, thus, on the long run an EvoPlus will always pay off.

With its maximum remote versions # 7 and # 8 the Foxy Advanced will reach an overall length of over 13m / 43ft (central pivot section to remote mount). Taking a cameraman on board the Foxy Advanced will reach over 7m / 24ft on the longest platform version # 4. The Foxy Advanced is based on the well known and proven principle of the Foxy Crane system - lightweight design and compact in transport. Compared with the standard Foxy the payload of the Advanced has been raised considerably. Existing Foxy cranes can be upgraded into Foxy Advanced cranes.

Panther's fluid heads and tripods

All Panther fluid heads and tripods are now available from serial production. The range starts with the fluid heads T 4 and T 6 for compact DV cameras (75 mm bowl), the T 10 (100mm bowl) for Camcorders up to 10kg / 22lbs, the most sophisticated X15 for HD cameras up to 15kg / 33lbs and last but not least the 150mm bowl heads T 28 (EFP/16mm) and T 45 for OB and 35mm film applications.

Panther's Trixy Remote Head - entirely digital!

At IBC Panther will present their new 3 axis remote head Trixy. Weighing in at a mere 5kg / 11lbs the two axis Trixy version will carry as much camera load as 15 kg / 33lbs. The way of lens controlling is totally independent from the lens brand. External motors will drive Zoom, Focus and Iris of all known manufacturers. Including lens control all motors are controlled via CAN bus. So far existing remote heads came with a bundle of cables — on the Trixy only one single cable neatly provides the head with all necessary controls, signal and power. The biggest improvement, however, are the slip rings allowing unlimited movements in all three axis. Till today the operator had to watch the remote head so that too many movements in one direction would not cause cable spaghetti. This is no longer an issue with the Trixy — a clear winner when it comes to live production.

HALO SFN gap-filler with an echo canceller

Designed for DVB-T and DVB-H - 2k, 4k and 8k modes supported. Operating in SFN with up to 200W output power. Easy to install - the user only has to select the frequency and transmitter power.

Plug and play installation (automatic mode detection and synchronisation). Designed for multipath reception.

Benefits:

  • It is an excellent product for providing coverage when an SFN cell has larger obstacles.
  • State-of-the-art echo canceller - loop interference is completely removed.
  • No need for an external GPS reference.
  • Automatic network detection

Features:

  • Low signal quality degradation for the whole repeater.
  • High flexibility with a dynamic transmitted power level (the echoes occurring in the network are dynamic). The gap-filler is flexible and it dynamically adapts to real-time changes, thereby increasing the stability of operation.
  • Automatic adaptation to the channel characteristic changes with a channel estimation performed every few seconds (if a new signal, obstacle or any other disturbance appears in the network, the gap-filler detects it and adapts to the new circumstances).
  • Diagnostics for monitoring the quality of transmission and the status of the equipment.
  • Chaining is possible.

Are you switching your analogue off?

But your business still demands investments in analogue equipment before any total switch off? Have you considered repeaters operating in analogue or digital networks? Elti has the perfect solution for you: Analogue Digital repeaters. This type of repeater can automatically detect the type of input signal from the air and retransmit accordingly in digital or analogue. Analogue Digital repeaters promise you a smooth changeover from analogue to digital broadcasting.

Mobile repeater solutions

A perfect and complete solution for analogue and digital retransmission - repeaters and translators integrated within one outdoor cabinet.

This solution includes a self-supported tower with a receiving and transmitting antenna system. Elti's mobile repeater solution is especially suitable for filling in the gaps in existing DVB-H SFN networks.

The requirements for putting this system to efficient use are minimal: space, electricity and the RF signal in the air.
