Addressing the possibilities opened up by the Niles acquisition, experts from LTN Global and Niles will be at the LTN Global booth to discuss how the companies’ united strengths can bring customers enhanced products and services at the highest levels of quality, reliability, and scalability.

Throughout the 2019 NAB Show, LTN Global will showcase the LTN Network — the company’s unique global IP transmission solution — and how it facilitates the delivery of broadcast-quality traffic in real time. The company also will unveil significant enhancements to the LTN LEAF™ solution for transmitting or receiving low-latency live video.

LTN LEAF™ Integrated Encode/Decode Appliance — Now With HEVC and 1080p60 Support

At the 2019 NAB Show, LTN Global will showcase updates to LTN LEAF™, a cost-effective, fully managed solution for transmitting or receiving broadcast-quality SD or HD video. Available in a variety of encoder/decoder configurations, the integrated appliance leverages LTN’s ultra-low-latency (less than 200 milliseconds) live video transport with high reliability and exceptional quality. With recent updates such as HEVC and 1080p60 support, LTN LEAF brings even greater bandwidth efficiency and value to applications including esports broadcast and digital offerings, with both linear and digital distribution.

LTN LEAF produces high-quality MPEG4/H.264 encoding for fast-motion sports and complex tape playout content at bit rates up to 20 Mbps and supports both point-to-point and point-to-multipoint global transmission. The solution also supports news distribution, enabling access to video from hundreds of sites across a mesh network. LEAF’s very low-latency encode mode facilitates interactive interviews and live shots with lower end-to-end latency (SDI to SDI) than satellite.

Riedel North America Promotes Justin McClellan and Stephen Remich

At the same time, Stephen Remich will move from technical service to a system consultant position. McClellan now reports directly to Joyce Bente, President and CEO of Riedel North America, and Remich reports to Rick Seegull, Manager of System Consulting at Riedel.

“It’s always rewarding to be able to promote up-and-coming talent, and Justin and Stephen are two of our brightest stars. Justin’s work in technical service and then system consulting has given him people skills he can now apply to his new sales role. And, of course, his intimate knowledge of Riedel products is already well established,” Bente said. “Stephen has just started his career, and we are very happy he chose to start with us for what will certainly be a very successful career.”

Serving as system consultant for Riedel since 2013, McClellan managed RF and communications systems based on Riedel’s MediorNet, Artist, and Performer solutions for numerous high-profile events — including the 2014 CMT Music Awards, the 2014 Central American and Caribbean Games, and four episodes of CMT’s “Crossroads” program. Previously, he was RF/Comms Tech/Systems Engineer for Alford Media Services, and he also served as a technical student worker for the music department of Shawnee Community College while a student there.

While a student at APU, he served as an engineering intern, helping design, integrate, and maintain video, lighting, audio, intercom, and electrical systems for large corporate, concert, and sporting events. Remich also served as a cinematic arts student worker at APU, gaining valuable experience diagnosing and fixing technical issues with a variety of cinematic equipment. As an independent contractor, he has worked in a variety of roles including audio assist, key grip, grip, electrician, and art production assistant.
