LYNX Technik Debuts yellobrik MADI Fiber to MADI Coax Converters

Lynx announced the launch of its three new MADI fiber optical to MADI coaxial converters & transceivers at NAB 2016

yellobrik - MADI fiber converter - OBD1210

MADI (Multichannel Audio Digital Interface) is a bi-directional protocol that transmits multi-channel audio over coax or fiber optic lines. MADI is commonly used on today’s digital multi-track recorders, digital live sound mixers, and digital performance systems that utilize multi-track technology.

LYNX Technik’s three new yellobriks for MADI allow for the transmission and extension of audio over long distances. They perform very long cable runs in real-time with zero degradation of signal quality – up to 10 Km (6.2 miles) with the standard fiber models, and up to 40 Km (24.8 miles) with the CWDM fiber model.

These compact and cost-effective modules are designed to convert up to 64 audio channels bidirectionally (64 IN and 64 OUT) between MADI Optical and MADI Coaxial (electrical) formats.

The three new models include:
– Bi-Directional MADI Optical to Coax Converter / Transceiver Pair (Model No. OBD 1210)
– MADI Optical to Coax Converter Transceiver that combines a fiber transmitter and receiver in a single package (Model No. OTR 1210 / OTR 1210 MM – multi-mode)
– MADI Optical to Coax Converter / Transceiver for CWDM wavelengths (Model No. OTR 1240)

As with all yellobrik’s these modules are hot swappable and rack mountable on the yellobrik RFR 1000 1RI rack frame.

The new yellobrik MADI fiber to coax converters are available now.

New release of Dejero LIVE+ Mobile App !

Dejero has announced a new release of its LIVE+ Mobile App, designed to empower mobile journalists (MoJos) and video contributors to broadcast live from virtually anywhere using their smartphones or tablets. The latest LIVE+ Mobile App by Dejero includes enhancements that give advanced users greater control when broadcasting live or recording video for later use, including an exposure and focus lock feature and a simplified on-screen zoom capability.

“With the rise of mobile journalism as a means for broadcasters to supplement their newsgathering, Dejero’s LIVE+ Mobile App enables them to cover stories immediately from locations that might be inaccessible or impractical for a traditional news crew,” said Brian Cram, CEO of Dejero. “Users are very passionate about Dejero’s products and frequently comment and post photos on social media of their use in the field. In fact, it was through social media that we received the feedback leading to these new enhancements, a perfect example of how our ongoing product development draws upon the evolving needs and requirements of our users.”Dejero LIVE+ app

The new automatic exposure and automatic focus (AE/AF) lock feature delivers more advanced control for situations in which automatic adjustments are not always ideal, such as challenging lighting situations or when there is movement within the frame. Now, by tapping and holding onto a specific area within the frame, users can choose what to lock the focus on, as well as manually adjust and lock the exposure level. This prevents the camera from automatically refocusing and adjusting the exposure, which can be distracting for viewers, and it also keeps the focus and exposure constant when the user is reframing the scene. In addition, the new on-screen zoom bar enables users to zoom in and out on the subject with a simple sliding motion.

Dejero’s LIVE+ Mobile App is ideal for covering breaking news, impromptu interviews, and live events, and it provides an excellent backup system if the primary camera or transmitter fails. Users can capture high-quality live video (up to 1080p) from virtually anywhere, record video for later broadcast, or import and upload edited video files to designated servers when traditional broadcast equipment is not at the scene. Because the app is extremely easy to use, it can be deployed by news organizations to every person in the operation, giving even non-news professionals the ability to broadcast from the scene of any breaking news they might happen upon.

The LIVE+ Mobile App for iOS is now available for free download from the Apple App Store. A license is required to send live feeds and recorded or edited files to server destinations.
