Their exhibits will include, "MXF file transfer and management system F-BOX," "BS/CS oriented business broadcasting system," "disaster and meteorology information services," and "subtitle creation solutions." They will also be holding a reference exhibit on Hybridcast.
■BS/CS oriented business broadcasting system supporting data filing
As the main business broadcast system of their company’s enterprises, this system covers the organization department, which is business-critical in broadcasting, the advertisement department, and the broadcasting department. It generates broadcasting data directed at broadcasting equipment.
Sales manager Nobuaki Odagawa, from the Fujij Mic sales center, stated, "Our company provides systems that perfectly fit the characteristics of BS and CS broadcasting. In this age of data filing, we provide a line-up of broadcasting equipment and broadcasting-related solutions that support it, as well as coordinated business broadcasting systems, at low costs."
The sales center sub-manager, Jun Takamisawa, explained, "For broadcasters like CS, we have constructed an easy-to-use system that goes beyond just listening. We have a established a new business flow, as well as expanded to new features, such as our VOD organization manager."
■Subtitle superimposition in program material| MXF files Loudness measurement/correction support as well
The MXF file transfer and management system F-BOX (picture above) is a system made for contained program materials (MXF files) and can handle subtitle superimposition and loudness measurement/correction. Mr. Takamisawa went on to say that, "We displayed it last year as well, but this year we have expanded it and have enhanced it with even more features. It is now feasible to keep a simple archive when the F-BOX is used together with a LTO-6 drive."
■Broadcasters and local governments coordinate to bring cloud-utilizing emergency information transmissions
Their disaster/meteorological information service is a service that provides stable reception, management and distribution of disaster and meteorological information through their IP-VPN network and cloud service.
Mr. Takamisawa stated, "NNT Communications’ IP-VPN network and cloud service can distribute both domestically and outside the country. We mainly expect demand from broadcasting companies, but also local governments and digital signage systems as well." He went on to say, "Since it supports public institutions like the Japan Meteorological Business Support Center and L Alert, it can deliver information to various broadcasters instantaneously." Since the Great East Japan Earthquake, the need for information related to disaster information have been on the rise, so their company has been putting great effort into the field.
■Support for subtitle creation for 8,000 programs yearly
Their subtitle creation solution is a total solution that provides the creation, superimposition and sending of subtitles.
Mr. Takamisawa stated, "It supports the subtitle creation for the 8,000+ dramas, variety shows and anime, etc., that our company broadcasts yearly. It also supports the real time captioning of 1,800 hours of live news and sports broadcasts as well."
■Expanding to service broadcasters nationwide
Mr. Odagawa expressed his wishes by saying, "Our company first appeared at this exhibition last year, so this is only our second time. Until now, we have mainly developed systems for Fuji TV, but for many years now we have also created systems designed for other broadcasters as well. Inter BEE is a great chance for us to let other broadcasters know what we we do. Through the combination of displays and demos, we hope to call attention to our skills."
