With products focused on the future needs of the industry and feedback from customers, Canon will showcase its all-encompassing professional imaging range – from input to output.

Built for professionals, and perfect for small production teams and single owner operators, the EOS C200 is the first Cinema EOS camera to feature the revolutionary Cinema RAW light format1. Designed to take the complexity out of delivering high-quality footage, the EOS C200 offers a host of benefits to broadcasters and filmmakers; featuring an advanced AF system that provides reliability and accuracy when shooting 4K. It also includes a high-quality LCD panel, which allows the operator to effortlessly select their subject. For those who need to switch seamlessly between several subjects in a single shot, the Dual Pixel CMOS AF enables smooth AF operation whilst the manual focus assist function, face detection with face priority and face-only options provide greater creative focus control.

The CN-E70-200 mm T4.4 L IS cine-lens and the CN E18-80mm T4.4 L IS KAS S are just two of Canon’s compact cine-servo versatile lenses. Designed for professional and advanced amateur videographers using large-format, single-sensor cameras, these lenses unlock the creative freedom to take advantage of 4K, integrated servo control and effortless switching between several subjects in a single shot. They ensure video can be captured with the upmost precision and quality.

“The world of cinema and TV is radically changing on every level, from workflows all the way through to how production teams shoot and display footage,” says Richard Shepherd, Pro Marketing Manager, Consumer Imaging, Canon Europe. “At this exciting and challenging time, Canon’s innovations are continuously shifting to meet the fluctuating needs of broadcasters and filmmakers, and the recent launch of the EOS C200 is testament to this. From solo operators to larger production teams, Canon delivers high-quality, ease-of-use and flexibility that empowers creative shooting potential.”

Stand 7.A30

Cinegy, which develops and produces software technology for digital video processing, asset management, video compression and automation and playout will showcase the new Cinegy TV Pack, the latest version of Cinegy Capture PRO, and an advanced Cinegy Multiviewer, the most flexible and efficient multiviewer the company has ever produced.

Cinegy TV Pack is an all-in-one live production and playout package that provides, literally, everything needed to get a pixel-perfect TV channel on air at a very affordable price.

Whether purchased outright or on a cost-effective annual subscription, Cinegy TV Pack does everything, and more, in a software-only environment. The pack includes Cinegy Air PRO plus Cinegy Type for real-time playout and multi-channel automation, including channel branding and CG; basic Cinegy Capture PRO for real-time ingest; Cinegy Multiviewer for multi-channel video monitoring; Cinegy Live for mixing and cutting; and Cinegy Convert for transcoding and batch processing.

New Cinegy Multiviewer software couples OTT servers with mid-range NVIDIA graphics cards to effortlessly decode up to 24 channels of HD. This is because of the multiviewer software’s ability to offload most processing onto the NVIDIA GPU to take full advantage of its power.

Cinegy Multiviewer can also share RAM with all relevant Cinegy software running on the same machine, creating a machine-wide frame buffer that can instantly share output with any Cinegy software application running on the same system.

Cinegy Capture PRO is multi-channel, multi-format real-time ingest software that enables real-time content streams to be reliably recorded and made accessible as quickly as possible. Cinegy Capture PRO now includes native ProRes support, Dolby Digital and Dolby E decoding, DANIEL2 codec support and many other enhancements.

This is paralleled with improvements to Cinegy Desktop, a universal production tool that provides real-time access to media in Cinegy Archive along with a powerful suite of tools for logging and editing, and an almost limitless ability to import and export media to third-party non-linear editing and automation systems. Cinegy Desktop now includes substantial upgrades to the effects available to the timeline sub-system, along with an all-new GUI design and native x64 support.

Cinegy Managing Director, Co-owner, and Co-founder Daniella Weigner said, “These substantial improvements and new offerings are just the thin edge of the wedge of what we have to offer at IBC 2017. We are always developing exciting new features across our entire portfolio. The result is that it has never been easier to get a channel on air.”

DTC Domo
Stand 1.F41

At IBC 2017, DTC Domo Broadcast (DTC) will launch AEON-TX, a new HEVC transmitter for wireless 4K UHD video.

DTC Domo Broadcast Sales Director JP Delport said, “It is exciting to watch the development and possibilities of POV cameras for live broadcast; UAV use; virtual and augmented reality; 360 camera viewing; and IP delivery. However, it is the increasing adoption of UHD and HDR on a global scale that is really compelling.

“At IBC we will launch a UHD solution that makes it possible to wirelessly transmit 4K video. We believe broadcasters will be excited about AEON-TX, not for just its UHD and HDR capabilities but its ability to take advantage of next-generation HEVC compression technology. The new transmitter and decoder can handle significantly higher bit-rates than we have seen before, making wireless 4K transmission possible for the first time. We expect it to be the most exciting product being launched at IBC, and a perfect addition to DTC’s wireless camera system portfolio.”

DTC will also show its miniature Broadcast Nano HD transmitter for the first time in Europe. Broadcast Nano now incorporates a control panel; robust, broadcast-standard connectors; and forced cooling that provides significantly improved thermal performance. These improvements enable production teams to capture high definition POV images in camera situations not previously possible due to equipment size and battery run-time limitations.

DTC’s feature-rich camera back OBTX and multi-functioning PRORXD will also feature at IBC, with added benefits including dual pedestal DVB-T for high bit-rate studio applications.
