Ensemble Designs Showcases BrightEye NXT Router Integration with NewTek TriCaster

GRASS VALLEY, Calif., Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ensemble Designs is showcasing the BrightEye NXT Router interface for the NewTek TriCaster 8000 multi-camera live production system at ISE in Amsterdam, 4-6 February, 2014, on stand 9-G132.

TriCaster 8000 systems are augmented by integrating the Ensemble Designs BrightEye NXT Video Router to provide a wider fan-in of sources as inputs to the TriCaster. When a TriCaster system requires more than eight cameras, a BrightEye NXT router can be added to accommodate even more cameras and sources.

"The tight interface between our BrightEye NXT Router and TriCaster makes life really easy for operators who want to use a lot of sources in a show or event," said Mondae Hott, Director of Sales for Ensemble Designs. "Additionally, our router gives TriCaster users the perfect way to bring HDMI sources into the production."

The BrightEye NXT 410 Clean HDMI Router and the BrightEye NXT 430 Clean SDI Router have built-in clean and quiet frame syncs, which provide glitch-free switching, even with asynchronous cameras. The router's front panel LCD display shows full motion video of the sources being routed. The built-in web browser provides remote control and very straightforward configuration of the router.

The BrightEye NXT video routing switcher's BNCs can be configured as inputs or outputs, which lets the user decide how many inputs and outputs the router has. If the production requires an additional camera or source, a BNC can be assigned as an input on the fly.

Michael Kornet, EVP of Business Development at NewTek added, "Ensemble is known for its best-in-class products, and the new BrightEye NXT router with its small footprint and large feature set is a great complement to any TriCaster 8000 system where additional media sources are required. We're thrilled that Ensemble has joined the growing ecosystem of NewTek developers, and believe our customers will have a great workflow experience when using TriCaster 8000 and the BrightEye NXT router to produce large-scale live events."

"Development of the BrightEye NXT Routers was informed by customers asking for an elegant way to use HDMI and SDI signals together," said David Wood, Chief Design Engineer and President at Ensemble Designs. "Integration with TriCaster is a natural progression for the BrightEye NXT series."

The BrightEye NXT 410 Clean HDMI Router has four HDMI inputs; one HDMI output; two dedicated SDI inputs; two dedicated SDI outputs; one flexible SDI port that can be either an input or output; and an SFP (small format pluggable) port that can be fiber or mini BNC, and either inputs or outputs.

"You can see your HDMI and SDI sources on the front of the router," said Cindy Zuelsdorf, Marketing Czar at Ensemble Designs. "That means you don't need an external video monitor to see your sources, making it extremely easy to select sources feeding the TriCaster. It saves money and it's so convenient."

Based in Grass Valley, California and formed in 1989, Ensemble Designs is a leading provider of signal processing and infrastructure products. Customers include Lockheed, NASA, Major League Baseball, Amsterdam University, General Atomics, and Kenneth Copeland Ministries.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discussed...
