Sound Devices Releases 788T Firmware Update

-

Sound Devices announced the availability of a Version 3.0 firmware update for its flagship 788T and 788T-SSD digital audio recorders. A free download for all existing and new 788T users, this latest software update offers a 192 kHz sampling rate for up to four tracks, increased C-Link metadata functionality and added limiters for digital inputs.

Version 3.0 provides for scene, take, notes, false takes, circle and track name metadata to be synched between C-Linked 788Ts. It also features digital input limiters for AES3 and AES42 inputs, ideal for digital microphones. Additional enhancements include a left/right tone identification mode with a shortcut to toggle the mode on or off, added user-customizable CL-9 encoder adjustments which affect trim gain and EQ frequency, and the option to decode MS into LR MIX only and leave ISO tracks as un-decoded MS.

In addition, Version 3.0 offers a new timecode mode, “Free Run – Auto Output Mute.” This is the same as the “Free” run mode, but mutes the “Lemo” timecode output when stopped and can be used to roll external devices when the Rec-Run timecode is not suitable.

“As our flagship digital audio recorder, the 788T has become a mainstay in the industry, and is in constant use on high-profile film, television and new media projects,” said Paul Isaacs, technical development manager for Sound Devices.

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

1
Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
