At NAB 2012 teleprompter, newsroom and video server specialists Autocue will feature an exciting new range of accessories for its "Master Series" teleprompters, including a 22-inch talent feedback monitor with native HD-SDI and new mounting system; a digital tally light that displays the camera number when live on air; an under-monitor talent clock that can also act as a tally, going green when on air; and new USB hand and foot controls to ensure compatibility with the latest PC hardware.
NAB will also see the global launch of new software for Autocue's popular range of multi-format SD/HD ingest, storage and playout video servers. This v3 release provides additional support for Avid and Apple editing workflows, with new OP-Atom and ProRes formats and improved handling of QuickTime, DNxHD and XDCAM content.
The new software also provides scheduled playout of clip sequences, with both local and remote access to playlists. Improved timecode handling allows the server's time to be synchronised to house timecode via LTC and for recordings to be triggered from embedded VITC. Support for 608 and 708 closed captions has been added and transcoding can now be triggered on demand from a pre-defined list of encode profiles. Finally a new XML-based remote protocol allows the server to be controlled by a third-party application.
