FlexTally
The standard package of FlexTally contains one station unit that connects to a video switcher and four lamp units that are to be attached to each camera, each lamp illuminates automatically according to the switching operation. The Tally Lamp System can be used for recording or live streaming with multiple cameras. Without a professional broadcasting studio camera setup, on camera performers or presenters have no way to know which of the multiple cameras is active. Using a tally lamp system, an indicator lamp called a “tally lamp” is set near the lens of each camera and the tally lamp with a pilot lamp to show which camera is active.

Since its launch, FlexTally has been well received by professional and individual users around the world for its ease of use and simple operation. It is possible to connect directly to Cerevo’s LiveWedge switcher without going through a router. In addition, FlexTally is compatible with other brands switchers*1 such as Blackmagic Design’s ATEM series, NewTek’s TriCaster series, as well as other switchers that support GPIO-capable connections.
Furthermore, vMix software switcher vMix is now supported by FlexTally. Combining the software switcher and FlexTally allows for an easy way to deploy multi-camera live streaming to further enhance production quality.

Announces a Sensor Module for Skis “SKI-1”, The Sixth Product for its XON Smart Sports Brand https://info-en-blog.cerevo.com/2019/01/07/2277/ Sun, 06 Jan 2019 21:26:12 +0000 https://info-en-blog.cerevo.com/?p=2277 6th January, 2019 (PST) –

The Sixth Product for its XON Smart Sports Brand
A collaboration with Reine Deer, blending traditionally crafted Japanese wooden skis with the latest IoT technology

 

Cerevo Inc., an Internet connected consumer electronics manufacturer based in Tokyo, Japan, announces that it has developed a ski-specific module “SKI-1”, equipped with built-in sensors and data communication functions. SKI-1, the sixth product of Cerevo’s XON smart sports brand, is also connectable to smartphones for linking to the cloud.

Cerevo is collaborating with the first Japanese luxury ski brand Reine Deer, which sells luxury ski-related items such as wooden skis incorporating traditional Japanese craftsmanship produced by Snow Snow Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Iida City, Nagano Prefecture, CEO: Mika Takagi), by providing them with SKI-1 as a sensor module.

Cerevo will exhibit SKI-1 and Reine Deer skis at its own booth at CES 2019 to be held from January 8th 2019. The product is scheduled for release next winter.

XON SKI-1
https://ski1.cerevo.com/

 

SKI-1 is a sensor module for skis equipped with an LTE module and multiple sensors. The sensor data is measured by SKI-1 and recorded via your smartphone to the cloud, using the same system which debuted in the first XON series product SNOW-1.
Users can check their performance data in real time with the companion smartphone application, by graphically visualizing their skiing they can look back on their own runs and improve techniques.
In addition, since SKI-1 is equipped with a GPS and LTE module, if your skis are lost, the location information of the skis is periodically transmitted by SKI-1 allowing you to easily locate them.

Cerevo launched the first product in XON series, SNOW-1, in 2015 and selected skiing as a new winter sport to develop the next XON series product for. The reason for choosing skiing was that Cerevo felt the market requirements matched the those of the original SNOW-1. SNOW-1’s function to measure in real time objective information such as the center of gravity, load and bend etc., and to visualize this information to combine with video shot in real time are features that both amatuer and professional skiers also desire.
As a result of consulting with Snow Snow, a manufacturer of winter sports equipment, we felt that we could use the leading technology from SNOW-1 for skis. We then began model development collaboration with Reine Deer to respond to user needs to improve skiing skills using IoT.

The ski on the right features Fujin, the god of wind and Raijin, the god of thunder in gold leaf, the lion’s design on the left uses the techniques of Makie, Mother-of-pearl, and Japanese Lacquer.
Price: 112 million yen / set (tax excluded)

Ms. Mika Takagi, CEO of Snow Snow Co., Ltd. discusses this collaboration,
“When the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake occurred, I learned the shocking news from overseas and tried to find something that I could do for the affected area, during that time I learned about the excellent traditional crafts in the Tohoku region. Currently, I am developing skis and ski wear using traditional crafts and I am convinced that sports with common rules around the world such as skiing are a key to overcoming cultural differences.
This collaboration between the skis of the ski equipment brand Reine Deer and Cerevo’s SKI-1 makes for a thrilling item that merges traditional Japanese crafting techniques and the latest IoT sensor technology from Japan.
It is a product that can be fully enjoyed all over the world, combining technology which visualizes the skill and movement of traditionally crafted skis. At the same time, it is a product that can protect against theft or loss which is a concern, so I am very excited to see this product come to fruition.

XON SKI- Specifications (Subject to change during development)

Bluetooth 5 (Low Energy)
Internet Connectivity LTE
Onboard sensors 6-axis sensor (Acceleration, angular velocity), GPS, Foot load sensor
Waterproof performance Equivalent to IPX 4
Charging method Wireless charging by Qi
Installation method TBD

Cerevo Introduces ZECH-1 – A Sensor Device for Motor Sports with Full HD Streaming https://info-en-blog.cerevo.com/2019/01/07/2296/ Sun, 06 Jan 2019 21:26:00 +0000 https://info-en-blog.cerevo.com/?p=2296 6th January 2019 (PST) –

Cerevo Introduces ZECH-1 – A Sensor Device for Motor Sports with Full HD Streaming
Capture the race with sensor data, visualize in real time, and share to team members instantly

Cerevo Inc., an Internet connected consumer electronics manufacturer based in Tokyo, Japan, announces a new addition to its XON sports equipment brand.

Cerevo has developed a sensor device with streaming function, ZECH-1, that captures driving conditions with multiple integrated sensors, synthesizes visualized data and camera images in real time, and can live stream video in Full HD.

Cerevo will exhibit ZECH-1 at CES 2019 to be held from January 8, 2019 in Las Vegas. The release of ZECH-1 is scheduled for the summer of 2019 and will cost 999 US dollars. (tax excluded).

 

ZECH-1 is the fifth product from Cerevo’s XON smart sports brand. Designed for race teams and participants, it is the first XON product to be equipped with a live streaming function, in addition to sensors which measure the performance data of a
four-wheel race vehicle.

This product is can be attached to a four-wheel race vehicle and connected via the vehicle’s OBD-II connector. Unlike other general data loggers that only record traveling data, visualization information is generated by ZECH-1 in real time and can be live streamed directly, allowing team members to analyze a wealth of data while the vehicle is still on the track.

Moreover, the data from ZECH-1’s built-in 6-axis sensor and GPS, such as position and speed, acceleration, angular velocity, vehicle condition etc can be instantly live streamed from ZECH-1. It is also possible to record to a microSD card. All of this data is displayed in a graphical overlay to accompany the race video.

Live Telemetry Function

Live data can be streamed in real time, using a 4G/ 3G communication network. You can use the data for creating new race strategies (*1) and improve your team’s performance by sharing data such as the position of the race vehicle and current fuel and water temperature to team members in the pit.

(*)Please check the regulations of each circuit and race before using ZECH-1.

Live Streaming Function

With ZECH-1, it is possible to stream to major live streaming services at a resolution of up to 1080/60p or record to a microSD card. Full streaming control is available using the “Dashboard” control panel provided from Cerevo LiveShell series.

Cerevo’s ORBITREC The Titanium 3D Printed, Integrated Sensor Mounted,
Prestige IoT Bike
Limited production of 10 units worldwide

Exclusive Owners Will Experience a Unique Riding Experience

 

Cerevo Inc., an Internet connected consumer electronics manufacturer based in Tokyo, Japan, will be exhibiting and demonstrating ORBITREC, a connected road bike with advanced internal sensors and a 3D printed frame at CES 2019 to be held from 8th to 12nd January 2019 in Las Vegas. There will be a Touch and Try area where visitors can actually ride the ORBITREC bike and experience its performance, visitors can also check out the companion mobile app at Cerevo’s booth.
Cerevo today announces that ORBITREC’s price will be 140,000 US dollars per unit for this fully custom-made bike. By taking precise measurements of your body Cerevo will design the frame to the owner’s exact size and produce it using 3D printer technology, resulting in a bike made exclusively for each owner. The price includes travel and accommodation expenses to Japan to take measurements for your custom frame and also delivery of the bike to you in Japan after completion. We would like to invite you to Japan for this special trip to experience receiving an IoT bike that has been made uniquely for you. Cerevo believes this is a unique opportunity and perfect for rare bicycle collectors and racing bike enthusiasts.

XON ORBITREC
https://orbitrec.cerevo.com/

 

ORBITREC was produced by Triple Bottom Line (designer Satoshi Yanagisawa’s design unit) DMM.make AKIBA and ABBALab. Originally developed from the concept model DFM01, ORBITREC was born from this collaboration. To enable a customized frame to perfectly fit each individual owner, a 3D printing process combining sintered titanium and carbon fiber tubes has been developed. The customized lightweight frame can be used for personal or professional riding.
Various sensors are built into the bike’s frame, which can receive and send information, creating a ride log while cycling. The big data obtained by ORBITREC and RIDE-1, Cerevo’s smart riding recorder, is then analyzed in the cloud to further help and record your riding. You can also connect to ORBITREC through its companion smartphone application.
ORBITREC features a 9 axis sensor (acceleration, angular velocity, geomagnetism), temperature, atmosphere and illuminance sensors as well as GPS. In addition to basic information such as riding location and velocity, frame status such as lean and impact can be recorded. When combined with the GPS sensor this creates a detailed riding log history that can easily be viewed at any time.
Users can also make the most of the data of other ANT+ compatible sensors by connecting smartphones via Bluetooth.

This product has been made using 3D printing technology and uses 3D printed sintered titanium joints. As a result, it was possible to mass produce parts with sufficient practical strength using a 3D printer.
RIDE-1 features the same sensors that are built into ORBITREC. By attaching RIDE-1 on an
existing road or cyclocross bike user can experience similar functions to ORBITREC.
