The SVG and SVGE editorial teams were out in full force at NAB 2022, covering the biggest sports-technology news and delivering daily SportsTechBuzz at NAB 2022 roundups. Here is a look at the news from exhibitors in North Hall.

Featured in this roundup are Advanced Image Robotics, Ai-Media, AutomaticTV, Blackmagic Design, Chyron, Cobalt Digital, Dalet, Digigram, EditShare, EEG Video, Evertz, EVS, G&D North America, GLOOKAST, IHSE USA, LucidLink, Matrox, Maxon, OpenDrives, Puget Systems, RT Software, Teradek, VITEC, and Vizrt.

Matrox Video (Booth N3118) is putting the focus on REMI and remote operation workflows at NAB 2022 with a series of showcases featuring its Monarch EDGE encoder and decoder appliances, Extio 3 IP KVM extenders, ConvertIP SMPTE ST 2110 NMOS-aware and IPMX-compatible converter s, VERO ST 2110 signal generator and diagnostic appliance, and X.mio and DSX LE5 ST 2110 NIC and SDI I/O cards. In addition, Matrox Video has unveiled four new multi-channel SDI video input and output (I/O) cards for its broadcast OEM developer card lineup. And lastly, the company it highlighting expanded display layout options and Full HD display support with its Extio 3 IP KVM extenders' Tile View feature to provide users with new productivity-enhancing remote workspace configurations.

Digigram (Booth N2238) is highlighting what Derek Badala, director, sales, Americas, Synthax, Digigram's distributor, calls a fluid IP audio codec solution, one that major sports broadcasters, including NBC Sports and Eurosport, have implemented. The high-density IQOYA SERV/LINK multichannel IP audio codec handles four to 64 stereo (eight to 128 mono) audio input and output channels and can simultaneously encode and stream the audio inputs in multiple formats and protocols, decode IP audio streams to the outputs, and transcode IP audio streams. It's used in conjunction with web platform and connection service IQOYA CONNECT to remotely manage a codec fleet and custom user profiles and monitor in real time all communications and remote-control codecs. The newest addition to the lineup is IQOYA Guest, an audio interface for connecting remotely via mobile devices. Badala observes that, while exacerbating the need for an all-IP solution like the IQOYA units, the pandemic supercharged their development.

The Advanced Image Robotics team is promoting its fully integrated remote-production solution.

Advanced Image Robotics (Booth N830C) is demonstrating its fully integrated remote-production solution that makes live-streaming sports simple and more cost-effective. Heading its product line, the AIR One Multicam platform can handle up to 4K imaging while allowing monitoring, switching, and robotic-camera control from a device as simple as a tablet.

AutomaticTV, part of the Mediapro group of companies (all of them to be found at Booth N5420), is highlight its big new addition this year: the ability to add manned ENG cameras that can capture closeups while the AutomaticTV cameras automatically capture the match or event coverage. It's an evolution for how our productions can be done, says Marketing Director Esteban Camp. All the feeds can be sent to a platform like Vmix, where the production team can do what they want. It allows for an OB van to have less resources, and four or five people can do the whole show. In Peru, it was used for the first broadcast of a women's soccer match, and they had three manual cameras that could add closeups. Also on display is AutomaticTV ONE, a single camera with three lenses, designed for lower-level collegiate, amateur, or high school sports.

LucidLink (Booth N7301) is showcasing Filespaces 2.0, its newly updated high-performance remote-collaboration solution. According to CEO/co-founder Peter Thompson, more organizations than ever are taking advantage of remote media workflows with LucidLink. LucidLinks' flagship SaaS product allows users to access cloud storage faster than ever, and version 2.0 adds new collaborative features.

GLOOKAST (Booth N725) is making a splash on the NAB 2022 exhibit floor. At a special event, Co-Founder/President Guilherme Silva announced that former Chief Revenue Officer Allan Delaurier has been appointed CEO. Aside from this shift on the business side, GLOOKAST is demonstrating metadata migration and quick archive retrieval. Designed with hybrid environments in mind, products include Media | Producer for remote transcode and ingest, Media | Services to provide customizable solutions, and Capturer for ingest of IP or SDI feeds to multiple simultaneous destinations. Outside of Las Vegas, GLOOKAST is supplying live ingest with reliability and speed for Canada's Bell Media.

Evertz Scorpion Smart Media Processing Platform

Want to check out the future of how gamification will change the way sports fans interact with their favorite sports-TV app? Visit Evertz (Booth N509) to see the demo of Ease Live AS, which is currently being used by YES Network for in-app watch parties and interactive gaming (demos of work being done with Bally Sports is also available). We've moved it forward to have a great story, says Evertz Senior Director, International Business Development, Mo Goyal. Regional sports networks and content owners can find a way to keep users engaged throughout an event with interactive graphics for things like trivia and, eventually, sports betting. We're seeing a lot of interest in what we're doing here. In other news, networking and CDN provider Lumen Technologies (Booth W4418) has opted for Evertz's Scorpion Smart Media Processing Platform for its next-generation contribution network. Speaking at a press conference, Goyal said, It gives Lumen the ability to build a large contrib
