Broadcast Pix Part of New Video Call Center Solution for New Genre of Production Workflow

Billerica, Massachusetts – July 15, 2014 – Broadcast Pix™ announced today that its integrated production switchers are being used with the new Video Call Center (VCC) automated production solution to bring the caller-based talk radio show format to television. By utilizing Broadcast Pix’s application programming interface (API) and file-based macros, the VCC system essentially creates a video-driven version of talk radio using Web-based video sources.

Inventor Tom Wolzien company received a patent for VCC on July 1. A 45-year television veteran, Wolzien serves as a consultant for large media organizations through his company, Wolzien LCC, and is the lead independent director for TiVo, Inc. Since last year, Wolzien and his team have been testing the VCC system by producing TalkCenterAmerica®, a series of call-in shows covering a variety of topics.

“VCC is right at the intersection of social and mass media, TV and the Web,” said Wolzien. “What’s unique is that the system doesn’t just handle a single IP video call, but it’s designed to handle multiple video calls simultaneously, each with the power of its own computer – essential for any live caller-based TV program.”

With VCC, the on-camera host produces the call-in show without a traditional control room. Broadcast Pix API and Fluent™ Macros allow the VCC software to provide the host with a great deal of production flexibility, such as triggering sequences of individual key/shot combinations that can be modified based on available callers. As a result, with no content costs for callers and minimal staffing requirements, VCC is a cost effective approach to producing live programming.

Using Skype and similar technologies on various devices, multiple Web video callers can connect to the show. Viewers can see the callers and whatever the callers want to show. Proprietary CAT™ Caller Acquisition Software assists screeners with incoming calls, audio metering, video cropping and conversion, and return video. Plus, a patented Text Overlay superimposes caller names and locations over the caller’s picture at the screener’s position and remains on-screen when the caller is added to the live production.

“The innovative technical team at Broadcast Pix has been supportive every step of the way as we implemented the Video Call Center,” said Wolzien. “As an inventor, I have appreciated their readiness to help us solve the challenges of integrating the complex aspects of television automation in a way that appears simple to the host who solely controls the air.  And on the technical side, I have appreciated their rapid and creative support when we have run into problems.”

“Video Call Center utilizes today’s Web-based video technologies to adapt the caller-based talk radio format for TV,” said Steve Ellis, CEO of Broadcast Pix. “It’s truly an innovative way to produce high quality programming with minimal staff, and Broadcast Pix is proud to be part of the process.”

About Broadcast Pix Founded in 2002, Broadcast Pix is the leader in integrated production switchers, with customers in more than 110 countries. Available in several configurations, from compact systems with end-to-end integration to large-scale systems for high-end live productions, Broadcast Pix switchers include CG, dual clip stores, file-based macros, external control software, and customizable multi-view and virtual sets with patented control options. Broadcast Pix also offers ReVue next generation slow motion systems, fX3D real-time 3D graphics, Rapid CG dynamic graphic playout software, and VOX voice-automated live video production, each designed to enhance our highly integrated live production switchers.

Sennheiser builds MOMENTUM with the world’s longest goal celebration launches awesome new headphones!!

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAALLLLLL!!!

Sennheiser builds MOMENTUM with the world’s longest goal celebration

 

Old Lyme, Conn., June 11, 2014 – The passion, the rhythm, the sound: As everyone is looking forward to a summer of football excellence, Sennheiser is inviting the world’s most vocal fans to join the biggest goal celebration. Inspired by the sheer football mania of Brazilian commentators who are legendary for their passionate goal celebrations, the audio specialist is calling on football fans to create the longest-ever online ‘goal’ shout in its Goooooool celebration chain. By joining the shout with their video clips, participants get the chance to win a limited-edition pair of MOMENTUM Samba headphones that feature the colors of the Brazilian flag. The Samba headphones will be available in the U.S. and in other regions for a limited time.

 

Just like Samba and Carnival – the passionate goal celebrations of football commentators such as Cleber Machado, Galvão Bueno or Luiz Roberto represent something distinctly Brazilian. Luiz Roberto became a legend around the globe when he seized the mic after his team had scored and shouted “gooooooooaaaaal” for a full 20 seconds. By building the longest goal shout, Sennheiser now aims to bring together the voices of fans from all over the world.

 

Inspired by their country’s incredible football commentators, the celebration will be kicked off by a group of Brazilian fans. Then fans from around the world can upload their own videos that take up the goal shout, each continuing the “ooooooooo” section for as long as possible. By uploading a video to www.sennheiser-momentum.com, it will automatically be linked to sections from other fans to make the ‘Goal-Celebration-Chain’ the world’s longest goal shout. If you are a passionate supporter of your team, it is time to be heard! Get your friends together, dress up in your team colors, and make it LOUD!

 

 

“We want to reflect the energy, the unstoppable football enthusiasm in Brazil and bring fans from around the globe together in celebrating the world’s longest goal shout,” said, Uwe Cremering, Head of Global Marketing. “Of course, while the fans will be coming together, I think we’ll also be able to enjoy the huge diversity – team colors and mascots. As part of the fun, we also want to see which country has the most fans in the shout. We are excited to see enthusiastic people joining in rooting for their team”, added Anaseth Martínez, Marketing Manager at Sennheiser Latin America.

As well as showing support, fans joining the goal shout have the opportunity to score a pair of MOMENTUM Samba headphones. Sennheiser will select ten winners from the teams and individuals taking part in the chain. The limited edition features a unique color scheme inspired by the Brazilian flag. The headphones with vibrant yellow ear cups and green detailing provide an incredible sound experience on the move. The MOMENTUM Samba will only be available in selected markets for a limited period of time.

 

The football-themed video chain will be part of Sennheiser’s “What’s Your MOMENTUM?” project. Together with Spotify, the audio specialist is presenting inspirational sound stories from all over the world, short films that showcase the life and work of some of the world’s most inspirational people, sharing their projects and unique achievements. The project is an invitation for others to share their own inspirational stories and to start video chains such as the ‘Goal-Celebration-Chain’. To learn more about the “What’s Your MOMENTUM?” project visit www.sennheiser-momentum.com. The MOMENTUM videos can also be found on www.youtube.com/sennheisermomentum.

Oppo N1 With CyanogenMod

oppo-n1

Oppo’s flagship N1 smartphone went on sale globally for the first time on December 10, but the version everybody wants — that’s the one that comes with CyanogenMod 10.2 pre-installed — wasn’t available from day one. Oppo has today announced, however, that it will be available on December 24 — just in time for Christmas.

Oppo was waiting for the N1 to pass Google’s compatibility test suite (CTS) process, which gives it access to Google’s official Android apps — including the Google Play Store. Without this, the company would have had to launch the N1 without a Play Store — or build its own — and users would have had to side-load their applications.

It was certainly worth waiting for that before launching the CyanogenMod variant, then — even if it means you won’t quite get the N1 in time for Christmas.

The N1 becomes the first phone with CyanogenMod to have been certified by Google, “which marks a major milestone for everyone” involved in the project, said CyanogenMod developer Abhisek Devkota. “This has been something a long time in the making, ever since CM 4.0.4.”

It’s unclear how much this N1 variant will cost, but it’s expected to come with the same $599 price tag (€499 in Europe) as the original model. That gets you a 5.9-inch 1080p display, a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, a 13-megapixel camera, and 2GB of RAM.
