Brainstorm EasySet 3D at IBC 2012

I stopped at the Brainstorm stand for the presentation on the EasySet 3D product. This is a Chroma key studio in a PC with advanced scripting to allow the scripting of a full show using many virtual and 3D elements as part of the show.
The product is a specialized virtual on air studio in a trackless physical studio configuration.

The Brainstorm company has always worked in the 3D market and have many products to complement the broadcast market. The product engine is being used by others to complement their products. The product includes a good library of virtual sets but also the elements of building your own virtual studio. These includes walls, ceilings, floors, backgrounds but then also set pieces. Import from popular 3D applications like Maya and 3D Studios are also possible.

Camera inputs can be cloned allow for some simulated multiple views of the subjects.

A new hardware mixer panel is being launched at IBC 2012 and connects to the PC for a more familiar mixing environment.

External data sources for graphics is possible allow for real time data manipulation into graphics being used in the scene.

Double Bunk in Caravan

With our family expanding, we faced a challenge of adding another berth in our caravan, but I did not want to make it permanent.
A couple of options are available, of which one is simply to add a bunk to the single berth. We however did not want to cause any permanent markings on the interior of the caravan .

Netdata + SNMP + Mikrotik

Always wanted to see my Internet line usage as a gauge without having to log into the router.

CasparCG Simple Playlist

It is possible to build a simple playlist as a rundown in the CasparCG client. It will very simply play each item after each other that are on the same layer. In this very simple post I show how to build such a playlist including the very important step of activating the OSC.

The Open Sound Control (OSC) implementation is how the client knows what the server is doing and then being able to send new command back to the server when a piece of media has ended to trigger playback of the next piece. For more details on the OCS, please see
