The NAB Show is in full swing, and the SVG and SVG Europe editorial teams are chasing down the hottest stories from all over the Las Vegas Convention Center. To make the flood of announcements easily digestible for our readers, SVG is sending you a daily roundup in SportsTechBuzz at NAB 2024, with all the top stories gathered in one easy-to-read blog.

Today's edition features 10TX, AJA, Appear, arkona, Ateme, Audio-Technica, AWS, Brainstorm, Christy Media, Cobalt Digital, Dizplai, Evertz, Fonn Group, Grass Valley, Hitomi, Intel, Joseph Electronics, Lawo, Leader, M2A Media, Multidyne, Net Insight, Nextologies, Panasonic, Ross Video, RT Software, Sencore, Sennheiser, Skyline Communications, Solid State Logic, TATA Communications, Tinkerlist, The Switch, TSL, Veritone, VidOvation, Wasabi Technologies, Wisycom, and XD Motion.

CENTRAL HALL Sennheiser (Booth C4732, N204LMR) is introducing its new MKH 8030 figure-8 RF condenser mic to the U.S. market. The MKH 8030 unlocks M-S, double M-S, and Blumlein stereo-recording option and can provide high attenuation of neighboring sound sources. The MKH 8030 shares the qualities of the MKH 8000 family and its RF-condenser principle with the unique push-pull transducer. The qualities include high resistance to moisture; a fully floating, balanced output signal; extended low- and high-frequency response (30 Hz-50,000 Hz), and extremely low inherent self-noise, enabling capture of a sound event in its entirety and with all its intricate detail, with wide dynamics, extremely low distortion, and a frequency-independent polar pattern to avoid coloration. Senior Product Manager Kai Lange notes that motorsports have been using the 8030 on a regular basis recently.

Leader Europe's Kevin Salvidge at Leader booth

Leader (Booth C5521) has expanded its product range with three major additions designed to ease the industry's migration from SDI to IP, HD to UHD, and SDR to HDR. Making their first-ever NAB Show appearance are the ZEN-W Series SDI/IP LV5600W waveform monitor and the LV7600W rasterizer. Says Kevin Salvidge, sales engineering and technical marketing manager, Leader Europe, The WebRTC remote-control interface has been added because we are seeing more and more customers looking to install test and measurement equipment in a data-centre environment, whether as part of a remote production or general on-prem operation. We are certainly seeing within sports production not necessarily a rush to remote production but a gradual shift in that direction. We launched the W-Series to address that and provide remote connectivity. NAB 2024 is also the U.S. debut of the LT4670 1U full-rack width SDI/IP synchronous test-signal generator for use in traditional SDI broadcast facilities as well as the next generation of hybrid SDI/IP facilities.

TSL (Booth C2119) is showing off the MPA1-MIX-NET-V-R audio-monitoring unit. Best of Show Winner at September's IBC, the MIX-NET extends ST 2022-7 functionality to ST 2110 AoIP networks and has been the company's fastest-selling new product ever launched. TSL CEO Matthew Quade notes the unique genesis of the unit's interface design. The V-shaped layout of the controls for accurate fingertip navigation in low-light environments, he says, reaching over his shoulder to simulate an A1's adjusting one of the front panel's eight rotary knobs, locating them solely by touch according to their placement on the panel. We researched that by talking with potential customers and users of the unit, and that was an important conclusion.

Wisycom's Geoff Baynard shows off the BFL1 module.

Wisycom's (Booth C7507) BFL1 single RF-over-fiber module offers selectable filters and extended-range Bluetooth and is equipped with an optical laser that transforms an RF signal to an optical one. It's also, according to Product Marketing Manager Geoff Baynard, a pivotal product for Wisycom's efforts in wireless systems for broadcast sports. It's excellent for both wireless microphone and IFB applications on the field. It adds considerable range for things like parabolic and sideline-reporter microphones.

If you are looking for ways to make fiber installs quicker and easier, then check out Joseph Electronics (Booth C1708) and the SHAXX-JBT Series. Built from the company's flagship SHAXX-TOTE, it enables broadcast cameras fitted with standard SMPTE 304M hybrid connectors to be deployed using ordinary single-mode fibers and installed into standard JBT enclosures typically found in outdoor and indoor stadium locations. The result is no need to install associated SMPTE copper wiring or to carry and store additional external camera accessories during events. The company says the SHAXX-JBT is the ideal remote camera solution with only a 2U rack height and a depth of 6 in., with recessed side power and fiber connections. It is available for various camera models, and Joseph Electronics also is showing products from Bluebell Opticom Ltd., DirectOut GmbH, and Videosys at its booth.

Multidyne's (Booth C7107) new MDoG-6060 Series gateways offer SMPTE ST -2110 network interface and low-latency JPEG-XS codec modules to efficiently manage uncompressed and compressed signals as they move between legacy systems and IP networks. The products are Multidyne's first IP gateway solutions for uncompressed ST 2110 networks, and the modules provide a reliable SDI-to-IP network interface with exceptionally wide bandwidth, helping broadcast and media companies optimize throughput for uncompressed 4K and HD video transport. There are multiple I/O configurations and two 25-GB network interfaces for a redundant transport stream. New designs for the SilverBack camera mount allows the ga
