Austin, TX — December 11, 2013 -– ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage, network connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, today announced that it will show its fully certified, next-generation connectivity solutions for Dell rack server environments at Dell World 2013 in Austin, Texas, December 11 through December 13. Located in booth #408 in the Dell Technical Partner Pavilion, ATTO will highlight the recent certification of their FastFrame™ 10Gb Ethernet Optical Network Interface Cards (NICs) and Celerity™ Gen 5 16Gb Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) with the Dell PowerEdge™ R620 and R720 rack servers.
“ATTO is excited to continue our longstanding relationship with Dell who, like ATTO, offers next-generation solutions for the full breadth of the computing market, covering enterprise to data center environments,” said Wayne Arvidson, Vice President of Marketing at ATTO Technology. “Dell World 2013 is a terrific platform for ATTO to highlight our newly certified products, available directly through Dell and certified VAR’s, which feature technology differentiators designed to provide faster time to data, analytics and critical business decisions.”
Dell’s latest generation of the PowerEdge family is engineered with the right combination of features and performance scalability to handle tough workloads for both large and small data center environments. The PowerEdge R620 rack server is a hyper-dense, two-socket, 1U rack server that has a large memory footprint and impressive I/O options to make it exceptional for space-sensitive environments. The PowerEdge R720 rack server was built to run complex workloads using highly scalable memory, I/O capacity and flexible network options. These server units, when connected to ATTO products, offer a solution that supports the most demanding application requirements.
ATTO Gen 5 powered Celerity 16Gb Fibre Channel HBAs, including the industry’s first quad channel card, deliver the highest bandwidth and lowest latency available in the market, as well as reliable and scalable connectivity with twice the maximum throughput of previous solutions. ATTO’s Advanced Data Streaming (ADS™) technology manages latency in real-time environments for the smoothest data streaming and best-in-industry data transfers, while MultiPath Director™ allows not just servers, but also Windows, Linux and Mac workstations to directly connect to enterprise class storage, reducing the latency commonly found in client-server architectures.
ATTO’s FastFrame 10Gb Ethernet NICs comprise a versatile portfolio for flexible design, whether used in workstations, servers or data center racked servers. Available in single, dual and quad-port configurations, FastFrame NICs include high quality SFPs and deliver high performance I/O connectivity and lossless Ethernet support for improved iSCSI block storage access. Quad-port cards remove switch-to-server bottlenecks and free up PCI slots for easier system design. FastFrame NICs incorporate ATTO’s exclusive ADS technology and are proven to outperform competitive products in demanding applications that require low latency, all while saving up to 30% in power consumption.
“ATTO offers the broadest range of storage & network connectivity solutions for the Enterprise environment, from data center to highly specialized workgroup applications,” added Arvidson. “We look forward to demonstrating how ATTO enables users to effectively maximize their data throughput with our unique, high-performance products.”

London, UK — December 11, 2013 — Camera Corps, a Vitec Group company with extensive experience in designing speciality camera systems, reports an outstandingly successful 2013 both as a manufacturer and provider of broadcast support services.
“Second-screen devices are really pushing the need for close-up content,” comments Camera Corps founder and managing director Laurie Frost. “They place extra demands on producers to come up with new and exciting angles that will deliver strong visual impact when viewed on handheld displays. Compact remotely operated systems such as Q-Ball allow dramatic main-screen and second-screen content to be captured from multiple sources quickly, efficiently and economically. They give producers the freedom to source live video from up to 98 cameras under full control from a two or three-person production crew or even a single operator. Whether in the studio, on the sports field, on the music stage or out in the jungle, day or night, these cameras can get right into the action, providing a lot more bang for your production buck.”
Camera Corps successes during 2013 included coverage of the Bobsleigh, Skeleton and Luge World Cup in Sochi mid February with Moscow-based NAO Sports Broadcasting. The cameras were rigged as come-and-go pairs and cut into the programme in quick succession to give a real idea of speed. MiniZoom cameras were placed close to the action and provided very dramatic viewing angles. Video was also captured from sleds showing what the competitors actually experienced as they sped down the trackways.
Working in partnership with NEP Visions, Camera Corps provided a wide range of specialist remote cameras for the ESPN X-Games games series shot during April, May and June in Europe and South America. “The entire Camera Corp team were great,” comments David O’Carroll, Technical Projects Manager, NEP Visions. “From our earliest conversations they provided the experience, flexibility and support necessary to help us achieve the best possible coverage for ESPN.”
Other highlight events in the first half of the year included the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships. Multiple Q-Ball robotic pan/tilt/zoom cameras, MiniShot and HotShot heads televised the excitement with Simply SMPTE dual mode electro-optical links allowing very long links between the cameras and the broadcast control centre. Q-Ball captured for worldwide audiences the magical moment UK tennis fans had been waiting nearly 80 years for when home-grown talent Andy Murray became Wimbledon Champion.
BBC Television chose a Q-Ball system to capture the first public appearance of a new heir to the UK throne. Coupling the camera to a London street lamp post allowed the BBC team to capture footage from the front entrance of the maternity hospital over the heads of other reporters and camera crews.
During the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series in August, a Q-Ball was mounted at the extreme edge of the diving platform, 90 feet above Boston Harbor. “This is exactly the kind of work Q-Ball was designed for,” Laurie Frost adds. “It enabled the Red Bull production team to achieve shots that would have been extremely dangerous if not impossible any other way.”
In October, Q-Ball covered the winner’s podium as Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel was crowned four-times world champion at the Indian Grand Prix motor race circuit.
During November, Q-Ball and MiniZoom systems were used with great success in a new one-hour-format broadcast show titled ‘Release the Hounds’. This combines horror and humour with scream-out-loud moments. The UK version is hosted by television and radio presenter Reggie Yates. Production company Gogglebox has high hopes for this format globally.
“Our challenge was to conceal robotic cameras which could shoot from a wide range of positions, including close-ups, follow-shots and wide-angle views, without cameras or camera operators intruding into view,” explains Fran Peters, Head of Production at Gogglebox. “The Camera Corps Q-Ball heads proved the perfect solution. “Their spherical shape allowed us to place individual Q-Ball cameras inside scarecrow heads which could rotate horizontally and vertically to track the action. Others were concealed to capture images from unusual angles.”
For the latest series of ‘I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!’, produced during November and December from the tropical rainforest of New South Wales, Camera Corps supplied to Gearhouse Broadcast more than 90 remotely controlled video systems. These included 16 Q-Ball heads, 20 HD-MiniZooms with infra-red night illumination, 30 MiniShots, 26 Hitachi DKH-32 and three Toshiba IKH-R1 cameras. “The Q-Ball heads incorporate a 10:1 zoom optics and a low-noise pan/tilt drive with precise speed control which allow the director to request live follow-shots,” comments Gearhouse Broadcast COO Kevin Moorhouse. “We get consistently high picture quality from the Q-Ball and HD-MiniZoom cameras, including all the detail viewers expect when watching in HD.”
The ITV2 Show has since broadcast a feature explaining how hidden Q-Ball cameras were used during the many Bush Tucker trials.
“2014 starts with the largest winter sports project we have ever undertaken,” says Camera Corps Business Development Director Shaun Glanville. “For contractual reasons we are not allowed to name the event but the scale of the support we are providing is in a league of its own including 110 palettes of equipment. 86 of these are going by air, almost enough to fill a Boeing 747, and the balance by sea. We will be fielding 160 cameras including 55 Q-Balls, nearly 50 high-specification zoom lenses, bobsleigh and helmet cameras with wireless live-feed RF video transmitters, over 100 long-distance optical and electro-optical links, tower cams, cranes, Hi-Lo platforms, LowBox camera mounts, Vinten pan/tilt heads, a 12 metre tracking system and a forest of Polecams.”

Puchheim, Germany – December 11, 2013 – Craig Lauridsen’s eBook “iPad Animation” is more than a “how to” book; it’s the most comprehensive guide to making stop motion movies on the iPad available. Featuring Boinx Software’s iStopMotion for iPad, “iPad Animation” teaches hopeful animators how to weave together story, pictures and sound to create amazing stop motion animations right from the iPad. Readers will learn how to use iMovie, GarageBand and djay in conjunction with iStopMotion for iPad. “iPad Animation” is available now through Apple’s iBookstore.
Written by Craig Lauridsen, a teacher at Newtown Movie School in New Zealand, “iPad Animation” was also designed to serve as a resource for schools and teachers looking to integrate the iPad into the curriculum worldwide. “We’ve had teachers tell us that their board has purchased a suite of iPads, and now they have to prove to the parents that they are a benefit to the learning, and not just a browsing device,” Craig says. “‘iPad Animation’ 100% meets that opportunity to turn the iPad into a creativity station. We want to get a copy of this book into every school – and the iStopMotion app as well of course.”
The iBook features chapters as easy-to-read “mind maps” that illustrate the multiple facets of stop motion animation: pictures, processes, editing and sound. Within each chapter, Lauridsen explores how each featured app’s workflow process fits with the others’. “iPad Animation” explains tips and tricks for using iStopMotion for iPad, including how to achieve special effects through simple camera angles, camera movement and a little creativity. Readers will learn how to record dialogue, make music and sample their own sound effects, then send a soundtrack directly to iStopMotion using GarageBand and djay – all right on the same iPad. They will learn how to use iMovie to edit animations like a pro. Throughout over 230 pages, “iPad Animation” includes 26 movies, 23 sounds and nearly 500 images.
“It is a rich multi sensory experience you can play with,” Lauridsen says of “iPad Animation.” “It is not just a ‘how to’ book, it is a ‘show me how’ book. Children are great at making stop motion movies. As teachers, we find the best way to solve most challenges on a budget they can afford, but to a standard that is the highest quality we can achieve.”
The Results Are In – Rave Reviews for “iPad Animation”
“This is an excellent resource for teachers that want to incorporate stop motion animation into their curriculum! Lauridsen’s book is easy to follow and full of tidbits and resources that veteran animators will find useful! I love that this is a digital book, as the video and interactive resources just can’t be duplicated with paper!” – Anna Adam, Tech Chick Tips
“We’ve been animating for five years now, the last two years with an iPad, and this book is the best source for anyone wanting to do it all with an iPad. It’s all here: the sound recording workflow, the editing, the animating, the story process, etc. This is animation gold. […] Workarounds, tips, mounting ideas, remote control of your iPad and so many more fun, real-world ideas saturate every chapter. We especially liked the use of ‘mind maps’ to navigate through the subject matter in the book. Mind maps work like our minds do, and we were able to drill down to the subject areas we were most curious about with clarity and ease.” – Animation Chefs
“This book made me realise that there are lots of possibilities using this software, and I can see why people really get into it. In short, it is fun to read and the project ideas in the last chapter really bring the possibilities alive! Having multimedia capability built right into a book still seems remarkable!” – Peter Thirkell, Victoria University
