Built By Bruce: Capture. Create. Share. Stories.

‘Built By Bruce’…

…is a promise of precision, reliability and performance. A customised solution, built from best in class components, thoroughly tested and seamlessly integrated. Where applicable, Built By Bruce solutions will comply with manufacturer and developer certified configuration guides so as to guarantee compatibility. Where possible, Broadcast Bruce will exceed basic specifications to deliver performance and extract the most from the hardware and software tools. Always with an eye on true value and a customers return on investment, Broadcast Bruce makes no compromises on components and build quality, promising operational efficiency, technical reliability and an extended life-cycle rather than the cheapest price.

It’s not always clear…

…why a manufacturer might recommend one component over another. Sometimes it’s not even clear what component they mean. An example might be a GPU. Anyone who has ever built a server for file-based video processing will have seen the vast array of options you can be presented by: So many processors. The SAME processor integrated by different manufacturers. Consumer, workstation or server class GPU’s? Sometimes the $5000 GPU recommended is crucial. Sometimes it is a pointless extravagance. Often, the cheap consumer card will actually perform better than the high end server card. If it is not integrated correctly however, heating and power supply issues will see you lose all those savings in system crashes and hardware failures.

That’s just one component.

The systems we build often have dozens, sometimes hundreds of components. They all need to be compatible with each other and they all need to be reliable. This is where experience helps, but also strong communication channels with the people who know. No one person has all the answers, but by building good networks and maintaining open, honest dialogue with manufacturers, developers, engineers and clients, Broadcast Bruce works to simplify the process of building and integrating custom tools into your business.

Ideas by Bruce…

Over time I will populate this page with some basic templates. Starting points to be customised to integrate into your unique environment. Hopefully they provide some inspiration. Get in touch to arrange a time to meet and discuss your requirements in more detail and finalise your design before Bruce starts building.

The Ultimate in Connected Production Workflow!

Combine NewTek’s industry-leading live production systems and you get the most complete, cost-effective, end-to-end IP based live event production workflow ever available from a single solution supplier – in HD and UltraHD!

At its heart, the TriCaster is the most complete video production platform available today, and sets a platinum standard for how much you can achieve with a single system.

NewTek 3Play is an unmatched sports replay solution ensuring you never miss an angle or moment. With unparalleled connectivity and efficiency across the whole production workflow, no single integrated system offers a more complete set of real-time capabilities.

NewTek Remote Storage (NRS) is the only fully integrated, supported, and co-developed shared storage solution for NewTek based media production environments, powered by SNS. NRS is designed to enhance NewTek based media production workflows and engineered to meet the high-capacity, high-performance demands of today’s live and post-production workflows. With its powerful workflow tools and flexible configuration options, NRS can enhance any live production environment, and will accelerate time to air and post.

Binding it all together. NDI. No other system can work with as many channels and do as much with them as NewTek can with NDI. With its single cable simplicity, dozens of camera, converter and computer sources can be mixed and switched for delivery to virtually limitless monitor, projector, web and television destinations. The latest NDI software tools connect not just local network devices, but allow sources, content and people from anywhere on the planet to be a part of the story – and these software tools are FREE.

With Spark Plus and Studio I/O providing simple NDI bridging, your existing creative tools need not be made redundant. While most NewTek solutions support traditional broadcast connectivity – such as SDI, HDMI and analogue audio interfaces – bringing these tools into the NDI environment will ensure the simplest and most flexible workflow.

Broadcast Bruce is a NewTek Certified Solutions Expert and a NewTek Premier Partner. No other reseller in Australia is as experienced with NewTek technology and we are ready to show you how these powerful tools can deliver any scale production to the highest professional standards.

Full IP Production Workflows

IP Production System Plan

The transition to IP does not have to be complicated. It does not have to be expensive. It does not require that you replace your existing tools and infrastructure. What it does mean is significant improvements to workflow, production speed and flexibility. ANYTHING on the network can exist as a source and a destination. Get content live and enable review, monitoring and contribution instantly with anyone – no file copying and no need for expensive cabling and video hardware. IP can also enable easy transition to higher frame rate, higher colour space, higher resolution production over the same infrastructure. Broadcast Bruce specialises in transitioning creative organisations from traditional broadcast to IP-based workflows – improving the production and distribution of your stories and events.
