Our visit to ISE 2017 (Integrated Systems Europe) – Part 2
Moving swiftly on to some of the capturing technologies available at ISE, we found there was a distinct lack of 360 video and VR/AR, something Dreamtek is fully immersed in this year.
We did however see a great camera over on AJA’s stand all the way over in Hall 8 which was a hidden gem! The AJA RovoCam is AJA’s FIRST compact block camera for industrial, corporate, ProAV and most importantly broadcast applications. RovoCam’s HDBaseT interface supports control of UltraHD video, power, stereo audio and RS-232 over a single Cat 5e/6 cable. Impressive eh?
There are two companion receivers to choose from; RovoRx-HDMI offers the simplest integration with an HDMI output, stereo audio out, control and power. RovoRx-SDI offers both 6G/3G-SDI and HDMI outputs, plus Genlock and other professional features. Both units provide PoH (Power over HDBaseT) to power RovoCam from a distance. Each interfaces with RovoControl, powerful control software for Mac and PC, offering full control of RovoCam’s numerous advanced features. The best bit? It retails at $2495, which is a steal.
Watch this space, we intend on using the RovoCam in a big way for 2017.
We spent some time with Clearone who we have had a great relationship with for many years, so we were really excited to see their new WS800 Wireless Microphone System product range which could really benefit our clients.
Four new models of wireless microphones/transmitters are now available, as well as a base-station receiver with either 4 or 8 channels, which connects to professional audio mixers. (You are also able to underload these units with 2 or 4 transmitters and upgrade at a later date if needed.) The microphone system uses multiple band RF technology, 24-bit digital audio, and strong encryption for security that fits any application.
It’s a compact, feature-rich and complete 2 Channel Wireless Microphone System that consists of Receiver with built-in antenna, all types of Transmitters – Boundary tabletop, Gooseneck podium, Handheld, Beltpack and Docking Station and is completely license free which is great news. It’s a new product so it might well be an expanded range in the future.
Rob Rodgers, our new Senior Business Development Manager has worked in the AV industry for 15 years and introduced me to an exciting new solution set from ZeeVee. ZeeVee is leading the way in developing video distribution platforms that ensure the highest quality video on any display device, leveraging existing or new cable infrastructure. It has been apparent for some time now that the lines between AV and IT are becoming blurred. With ZeeVee bringing to market innovative, cost effective and easy to install IP video distribution platforms this is only cementing this theory and bringing the two worlds ever closer. We can see a real desire for this within our client base who are looking to utilise existing skills and infrastructure to deliver high quality video productions.

We loved ISE 2017 and the new product ranges it’s showed us, If you are interested in any of the products I’ve blogged about, give me a shout and we can arrange a demo or loan for you.
