“Cuando la información se organiza, surgen las ideas” Jim Rohn.
Here are the latest news…
In just over a month the world’s top sporting event will start, the Olympics Games in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). In the four years that lapse from the previous edition, not only top athletes strive to win a medal, but also manufacturers and television organizations work tirelessly to design the best audiovisual systems and the most advanced workflows to achieve the best audiovisual experience for the audience.
One of the challenges in the search for improving quality is the file transcoding where different frame rates are involved (i.e. 25fps to 30 fps and viceversa) trying to preserve the maximum picture quality. Televisión Española (RTVE) have chosen Datos Media to provide an advanced solution with a technical level matching those at BBC or NBC .
Datos Media have implemented a system based on ContentAgent from Root6 that provides a central core from where all the file’s workflow is being managed and automated, from ingest to delivery. The advanced frame rate conversion of ContentAgent uses the Tachyon technology from Cinnafilm and allows the replacement of workflows based on high cost, top level propietary hardware that adds unnecessary conversions to/from baseband in order to do the required frame rate conversions from 25 fps to 30 fps and viceversa. With ContentAgent, the advanced frame rate conversions using motion compensated algorithms is being done in parallel to the transcoding processes. These frame rate conversions uses phase correlation and other motion estimation data to achieve the best possible picture quality that technology can provide today. ContentAgent brings us not only the complete monitoring of all infrastructure work and processes carried out but also gives us ability to do a manual process control due to the Virtual folders function. In addition, this configuration allows checking all the material inside Avid Interplay, keeping the metadata, and allows to start editing even while being transcoding.
All the system runs on a powerful off the shelf hardware, that makes the best use of multi-core CPUs and Nvidia Tesla graphics cards with up to dedicated 12GB memory, to obtain a high speed transcoding and frame rate conversion processes, while It allows you to use RGB or YUV color spaces and processing with 8, 10 or 16 bit depths.
The solution that Datos Media have delivered to Televisión Española will provide huge savings in costs and will allow RTVE to stay ahead in terms of performance, versatility and quality in order to offer its audience an excellent audiovisual experience for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
The Bit Broadcast show isn´t only a national reference, but historically is also an international reference in the professional audiovisual world. A few days ago another edition of the Show closed, recording a large attendance of visitors and a high quality of exhibitors. It is a sector which evolves technologically at a rapid rhythm to the beat of the need to provide solutions to consumer demands for new products and audiovisual service.
The team from Datos Media´s has yet another year attended this event showing all the news of their brands and attending all visitors who have passed through the stand. A stand that was designed in an open manner so that visitors could see the different graphics , playout, production and media management solutions. Our suppliers such as Avid, MOG, IdeasUnlimited, Pebble Beach, Root6, DAC, or DVS Panasas have made demonstrations of their products so the visitors could see the possible solutions to their integration problems up running.
This year the BIT 2016 has been a very special show for us, this show has established us as one of the reference integrators in the audiovisual sector. And on the other hand BIT has also revealed the high quality of both participants and visitors (David Martínez, Datos Media COO)
We continue working to integrate solutions and are looking forward to enjoy another BIT Broadcast in 2018
Nos complace comunicar la incorporación de Lorenzo Grippo en Datos Media Technologies como técnico de sistemas.
Un profesional especializado en sistemas automatizados de emisión que viene de la empresa inglesa Pebble Beach.
Con esta contratación Datos Media sigue demostrando su apuesta por la búsqueda de una alta cualificación en su equipo para poder ofrecer la mejor calidad técnica a sus clientes.
In Spain, a large percentage of Spanish Broadcasters and clients of Datos Media Technologies such as RTVE, MediaSet, Atresmedia, Movistar+, AMCNetworks, Telsos360, TVG, RTVCM, Canal Sur, TV Canarias, Disney, RTV Galicia, etc have chosen the ingest file flows centralization and multi-format files, which MOG mxfSPEEDRAIL F1000 offers.
Although most of them use mxfSPEEDRAIL F1000 systems as an automated media ingest tool, it is worth noting that companies like Mediaset ,TVG and Canal Sur, apart from this configuration, they also use MOG Technologies systems for the ingest of SDI SD / HD signals directly on Avid ISIS shared storages
“From their beginning we have been working with MOG Technologies and they have fully shown us to be a Company that adapts their products to the new market necessities, new file formats and workflows, etc.. An example is the adaptation of the system to accept new types of camcorders and recorders, broadcast as well as professional (David Martinez, COO Datos Media Technologies)
In the case of Canal Sur Television, they are equipped with these product for the news production system as well as the transmission system. In the first case, they have integrated several F1000 to receive audiovisual material from territorial delegations as well as other external sources such as audiovisual producers. The material is transferred to Avid ISIS and registered in Avid Interplay for sharing. On the other hand, in the transmission system, a dozen mxfSPEEDRAIL S1000 ingest SDI signals which together with other F1000 normalize and transfer the MXF files to the rest of the automated system for its transmission.
MOG Technologies has more than a decade of experience boosting the performance workflows within environments based on exchange of audiovisual files, ensuring high interoperability between formats and systems.
“The correct understanding of our customers’ requirements and the capability to adapt and provide a solid and complete ingest system helped us to gain the market trust”, says João Pereira, Sales Director at MOG. “Of course, that part of these results couldn’t be done without our corporate partners’ cooperation, like Datos Media that is playing an important role on the onsite consultancy and support.”
mxfSPEEDRAIL F1000 is a multi-format ingest system which allows the transfer material between camcorders , servers, editors and media managers even maintaining the original metadata. Its rewrap, trim and merge tools allow selection and pre-editing of materials from a very flexible and intuitive interface.
Datos Media has provided an entire Shotoku camera control system for the Spanish Senate. The system consists of TG-27 Shotoku robotics heads and TR-8S control systems. These devices are suitable for both parliamentary systems and television studios.
The TG-27 Shotoku robotic heads are characterized by its sturdiness, lightness and small size. Despite the small size, the mechanic is strong enough to move cameras up to seventeen kilos. The electronic control board is situated on the actual head which makes the maintenance simple and accessible. Among other advantages, the soft movement at any speed and recording angle also stand out.
On the other hand, the TR- 8S control system provides a complete and intuitive operational control with the possibility of storing up to 990 positions per camera and 10 complete sequences.
The importance of the contents to be recorded on this location makes the redundancy an important security point against any kind of breakdowns. For this reason, the system has several panels from where it can be operated simultaneously and a redundant network control allows all the devices to continue operating without interruption in the case of any failure of infrastructure.
The advance of the audiovisual technology is getting faster and faster each day and this implies a need for constant adaptation and increased business competition. Therefore, in order to achieve market leadership it is crucial to invest in experienced and trained staff.
Following this strategy, Datos Media has created a staff with professionals who have these qualities. This time, Datos Media has integrated into their Sales Department a senior executive with a long career.
Rafael Zapardiel has more than 30 years of experience in the audiovisual sector.
In 1980, he started in Pesa Electronica as an engineer. Three years later, Sony Spain hired him as Presales Engineering Manager until 1987. After a year in K-2000, a postproduction company, as technical director, he started as a Technical Subdirector in Telemadrid, a local public television, and he was in Canal Plus as Operations Manager for another year.
In 1990 he started to work in Panasonic as Engineering Manager, where he worked until he started in Quantel as Sales Manager in 1995. Quantel has been the company in which he has developed more than half of his working experience in the last 20 years. All this time he was responsible for developing the market for this Company in Spain, Portugal, Central America and the Caribbean region, introducing the technology and equipment for production and post-production in HD, stereoscopic and 4K for both television and for film.
The acquisition of VANTeC by Datos Media Technologies has been an inflection point, not only in the way each company complements the other with their experience, but also the way this consolidates both geographic markets.
Some weeks ago, a “Kick-Off” was held in Oporto (Portugal), where everybody working in VANTeC and Datos Media got together and shared experiences.
During this event, the actual state of each company (projects, organization chart, resources, etc.) was exposed, as well as future technical projects and lines of business.
Everything in the unique frame of the beautiful city of Oporto, which streets, people, gastronomy and excellent wines made this professional experience a pleasant treat for everybody.
Masterchef is a talent Show which TVE broadcasts to find the best amateur chef in Spain. Its success is demonstrated by the excellent audience in the recent editions with a 33% share. This season Masterchef has chosen the professionalism of Datos Media Technologies to integrate the audiovisual technology.
The demands for quality from the audience as well as the production create the need for optimization of flows and more powerfull and accesible system installations. Therefore, an Avid ISIS 5500 storage system has been integrated, which in a simultaneous and collaborative way connects more than a dozen Avid Mediacomposer and Protools clients , working in HD multicamera (9 cameras). The characteristics of the connection of the whole infrastructure makes it possible to work in 4k formats, as 10Gb fiber channel wires have been installed.
Another point to highlight, is the possibility to ingest the video signals from external cameras as well as EVS stage recordings. This results in a final product of high quality with better production times and optimal levels of accessibility, reliability and sturdiness.
The main aim is for the audience to enjoy every phase of the show with almost all their senses and to be able to follow the cooking techniques of the contestants down to the very last detail.
