Brick House Video Launched Three "LIVE" Ones At IBC 2010
Brick House Video’s TallyHo!, a wireless tally indicator system, offers camera operators reliable remote on-air indication in the field. This unique design is comprised of a base station with direct interface to the local vision mixer and a set of camera hot-shoe mounted receiver modules. TallyHo! gives the camera operator and, crucially, the camera subject, a highly visible indication of on-air status. TallyHo! can be adapted to work with almost any vision mixer abut its operation is especially suited to Brick House Video’s Callisto vision mixers or the Sony Anycast system.
“TallyHo! provides a reasonably-priced alternative to more complex and expensive systems,” explains Julian Hiorns, managing director of Brick House Video. “It stands alone in its ability to furnish wireless feedback to cameras; essential information that every operator in the field needs, but couldn’t access economically prior to TallyHo!”
Brick House Video’s Video Ghost brings phantom power to the video camera world! Video Ghost provides a nominal 12V auxiliary power for camera accessories using the existing video cable. Under certain conditions a 200m operating length is achievable. For example, the system can be used to power a composite to SDI converter at the camera, thus avoiding the significant signal degradation suffered by composite video over such a length.
“Video Ghost is the video equivalent of phantom power for audio systems,” says Hiorns. “We developed it to provide a set of affordable phantom power modules for use with both analogue and digital video feeds. We’re delighted to bring this long over-due product to market.”
ShowTime! debuts in Europe at IBC. ShowTime! is a cost-effective package combining dynamic server control and live vision switching. Based on proven technology from two leading broadcast hardware manufacturers, ShowTime! brings the seamless integration of live sources and action replay within the grasp of the most demanding budgets. The ShowTime! package comprises Hi Tech Systems’ industry standard server controllers, Brick House Video’s award winning digital vision switchers and supporting software at a compelling price.
Notes Hiorns, “ShowTime! is simple and intuitive to use with a set-up time measured in minutes. A true fly-away kit, It is easily transported between locations.”
