Three key live music venues in New York City managed by The Bowery Presents – Brooklyn Steel, Webster Hall and most recently the Mondo Award-nominated, 2800 capacity Terminal 5 in Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan – all feature Robe moving lights in their house rigs.

Sony’s solutions facilitate remote, virtual and distributed productions in all types of broadcast applications
Sony continues to bring to market new offerings for every type of broadcast production. These allow producers and media companies to work effectively and safely in tight spaces or work remotely, leveraging the best of a team’s expertise and creativity. Over the past few months, agile and more streamlined production workflows have quickly become the norm, with the media industry adapting to fewer or no on-site staff and the need to be able to produce from home settings, instead of studios. This has created an acceleration of the migration towards automated and distributed productions, which depend on connected and scalable technological solutions.
On September 1, 2020, the 2019-20 Men's Volleyball Super League finals ended at the Qinhuangdao National Sports Training Center. The Shanghai Men's Volleyball Team defeated the Jiangsu Men's Volleyball Team with score of 2-0 and won the championship for the sixth consecutive year. This is also the 16th championship of the Shanghai Men's Volleyball Team. This season's men's volleyball league played the first round on January 19, and it came to an abrupt suspension because of the epidemic. It was not until August 20 that the game was rekindled at the Qinhuangdao National Sports Training Center.

How do you make two people thousands of kilometers apart appear side-by-side in a virtual studio instantaneously? Teleportation technology. While it may sound like science fiction, Vizrt regularly brings people together from separate locations across the globe with help from a pair of Matrox® Monarch EDGE 4K/multi-HD encoder and decoder devices when producing its own VizrTV online series. The Monarch EDGE encoder and decoder pair alongside Vizrt’s software-defined visual storytelling tools for broadcasters allowed Vizrt to ‘teleport’ resident experts Chris Black, Vizrt’s Norway-based Head of Brand and Content Team, and Gerhard Lang, Vizrt’s Austria-based Chief Technology Officer into a virtual studio in Vomp, Austria – along with guest experts from anywhere in the world. With the ability to seamlessly execute both remote and cloud-based productions during different episodes, the Monarch EDGE has become Vizrt’s go-to broadcast-quality encoding and decoding appliances for delivering low-latency, strikingly-realistic virtual interviews.
