    fiber connector question - extending HD signals in a theatre
    posted by Saker Klippsten on Dec. 4, 2014, 11:35 a.m.
    No difference in connector type going from LC to SC or visa versa .  It's all about mode type -single or multi you cannot mix without going through a converter. 

    We have the Blackmagic fiber extenders and fiber to HDMI converter... They are all LC end to end...

I see that there are available patch cables that go from LC to SC, does anyone know if there is any gotcha when using these mixed connector patch cables?

    Also - Does anyone have a favorite extender? I am not sold on any that I have seen. I see a number of cat6 based ones too, also there is now HDbaseT. I assume latency is a tradeoff, but is it really an issue?

    fiber connector question - extending HD signals in a theatre
    posted by Ken Spickler on Dec. 4, 2014, 12:05 p.m.
    I think of SC as a little bit old-school, but as Saker said, the connector type doesn't make a difference in the signal. What can make a difference is not just single- versus multimode, but also the rating and of the fiber. Single-mode really only has one option: 9/125um. This refers to the size of the fiber core and it's cladding. Singlemode is generally used for very long distances (500 meters to many kilometers). With multimode, however, it gets a bit more complicated. There's the legacy 62.5/125um cable (orange colored patch cables, aka "OM1" for optical multimode), and the newer 50/125um cables. For anything you do these days, 50/125 is the way to go. But the complexity goes further. The original 50/125 patch cables were also orange (aka "OM2"). With the advent of 10GbE, so-called "aqua" cables became common (aka "OM3"). These are also 50/125, but aqua-colored. They are laser optimised, have a wider bandwidth and therefore allow greater distances for the higher speeds. The latest multimode cables are "OM4" and also aqua-colored. These have an even wider bandwidth than OM3 cables.

    Here's a quick rundown of distances of 10GbE for each OM version (I would expect such converters to have similar requirements):
    OM1: ~30 meters
    OM2: ~80 meters
    OM3: 300 meters
    OM4: 400 meters

    TL;DR: tell your vendor to install OM3 fiber.

    Beg, borrow, steal (even buy) short length of cable tray?
    posted by  on Dec. 5, 2014, 6:40 a.m.
    Hi, Londoners Is there any chance that someone could sell or pint-trade me 1m of 100-150mm shallow cable tray, like the stuff that runs vertically inside racks? Plastic is fantastic but steel would be ok, too. I'm building a short deskside rack and would rather not buy 3m of the stuff from Bryant if i don't have to. thanks! - cal@bluebolt To unsubscribe from the list send a blank e-mail to mailto:studiosysadmins-discuss-request@studiosysadmins.com?subject=unsubscribe

    What are people using to create custom 3DLUT display transforms for different devices?

    I did just come across SpectraCal CalMan Studio,http://calman.spectracal.com/calman-studio.html
    which seems pretty good, does anybody have experience with it, and also hooking it up to OCIO?

    Are there other tools out there that are worth looking at?

    Full kickstart or minimal + playbook

    Hi list. We are about to switch office and are doingan overhaulof our setup.
    I wonder if anyone have any inputs.
    Earlier we have been setting up our servers manually and our workstations and rendernodes have been installed over PXE with pretty much complete kickstart files. We are running centoson everything.
    But now I have been thinking about installing all computers over PXE with a minimal install and then using ansible playbooks to configure them after need, render node, workstation,dbserver etc. What do you think?

    Cheers

    Maya 2015 and Image Sequence slow update
    posted by Fabrice Altman on Dec. 8, 2014, 11:10 a.m.

    Hi,

     

    Just wondering if anyone else has noticed this.

    In Maya 2015 (we are now with Ext1 SP5) image sequences located on a server share are very slow to update when scrubbing / playing.

    The same sequence stored locally plays fine. The sequence does not have to be displayed to slow everything, it just need to be loaded in a node.

    Very new to Maya, so I’m not sure what is going on, but this slowness in not present in Maya 2014.

     

    Cheers,

    F.

    Adobe Creative Cloud user/license management
    posted by Matthew Smyj on Dec. 8, 2014, 12:31 p.m. (1 day ago)

    We've been looking at Adobe's current offerings and while their software management tools sound promising we can't afford them. They've told us that we need to purchase 250+ clients in order to get the full blown, most granular tool set for management. This was a few months ago, prior to the management tools shipping, and things may have changed since then. So I have a couple questions:

    1.) Anyone have experience with management of the seats under the new tool set? Specifically with regard to, good/bad/nuetral experiences managing storage in the cloud, seats, software installs/upgrades and pricing under the new CC regime.

    2.) Recommendation(s) for a smaller VFX house that doesn't have a need for 250+ seats nor budget for that license tier yet still wishes to meet its contractual agreements with studios on security while using the newer Adobe software?

    Apologies if this has already been covered elsewhere. I poked around but did not find a recent thread.

    We've been looking at Adobe's current offerings and while their software management tools sound promising we can't afford them. They've told us that we need to purchase 250+ clients in order to get the full blown, most granular tool set for management. This was a few months ago, prior to the management tools shipping, and things may have changed since then. So I have a couple questions:

    1.) Anyone have experience with management of the seats under the new tool set? Specifically with regard to, good/bad/nuetral experiences managing storage in the cloud, seats, software installs/upgrades and pricing under the new CC regime.

    2.) Recommendation(s) for a smaller VFX house that doesn't have a need for 250+ seats nor budget for that license tier yet still wishes to meet its contractual agreements with studios on security while using the newer Adobe software?

    Apologies if this has already been covered elsewhere. I poked around but did not find a recent thread.

  • 12/08/14--11:40: Powerline network adaptors
  • Powerline network adaptors
    posted by Sam Edney on Dec. 8, 2014, 2:40 p.m. (1 day ago)
    I've had some strange issues with our home network recently; IP address conflicts, a different public IP sometimes (even though I should have a static one), loss of internet, lost connectivity to the router etc. While trying to figure out what was going on - I refreshed my router's web-interface via it's IP address. To my surprise, I found myself looking at a BT Home Hub (no password prompt) but on the same IP as my own Router. Im not with BT and I dont have a HomeHub.

    To cut a long story short, using TPLink Powerline adaptors are not encrypted by default. Installing them was making my home network available to my neighbours - and theirs to mine - since they had the adaptors too. I was able to browse their entire home network, see their printers and media server.

    Our houses are only around 5 years old, fully detached and we have had no issues with our electricity supplies.

    Many posts on the web say that a fusebox will filter out the signal and prevent cross-over. This is definitely not the case!

    For now I have removed the adaptors but will replace with some that offer encryption soon.

    Projector/Monitor calibration and 3D LUT generation.
    posted by Kevin Miller on Dec. 8, 2014, 4:15 p.m. (1 day ago)

    Hi All,

     

    CalMAN version 5 in the Color Cube 3D LUT workflow does custom 3D LUTs. I have had some success with it although it can be difficult some times.

    What are people using to create custom 3DLUT display transforms for different devices?

     

    I did just come across SpectraCal CalMan Studio, http://calman.spectracal.com/calman-studio.html

    which seems pretty good, does anybody have experience with it, and also hooking it up to OCIO?

     

    Are there other tools out there that are worth looking at?

     

    Sam.

    Vancouver, BC Members - New Public-Cloud User Group (PUG) - 1st MeetUp Dec 9th - Gastown Invite
    posted by Jake Warken on Dec. 8, 2014, 6:42 p.m. (1 day ago)

    Hello Vancouver based SYS Members,

    We have an exciting unique event planned for the evening of Dec 9th which I thought you might be interested in.

    Our company has been investing strongly for the last few years in the cloud and we have been recently recognised by our company being ranked in the top 40 cloud service providers by “talkin cloud” and recognise by mspmentor too, this year. http://talkincloud.com/tc100

    But that’s not the exciting news.  We are proudly part of the launch of a new community group called PUG (Public-Cloud User Group).

    PUG will be held once a month.  What is PUG?  It’s a gathering of the technology community to network, teach and learn from each other about the cloud.
    The cloud is changing and evolving every day at a frantic pace, it’s hard to keep up.  We’ll be exploring all cloud solutions, with no Sales or Agenda.  We have sponsors which we make sure to mention and let them present, but no topic is taboo.

    Join us for drinks, beer, appetizers and pizza
    Tuesday the 9th of December starting at 5.30pm (talks start at 6.30pm)
    RSVP at www.meetup.com/PublicCloud

    Discover a variety of options in the Cloud from all different Vendors. 
    We have a theme for every event and this one will be on:

    Hybrid Cloud

    We are fortunate to have Microsoft as a major sponsor for our first event.

    One topic we'll be looking at is how Microsoft System Center can help you manage your on-premise, colo, private cloud, Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure and other clouds.

    We'll have networking and discussions around all different cloud Vendors and Solutions. We'll even be SMASHING Servers!

    Expect this User Group to be different, interesting, interactive and not the traditional death by powerpoint you might be use to or expect.

    Make sure to register at www.meetup.com/publiccloud and I looking forward to seeing you there!

    Studios 100% on AWS - WAS: Photos from Sydney Meetup
    posted by Andrew Galka on Dec. 8, 2014, 6:45 p.m. (1 day ago)

    Hi


    So after watching the Youtube video it kind of seems like they were presenting an almost naive hypothetical new studio and how they would do it all on AWS.​ Has anyone actually (or know of anyone who have) delivered a project pretty much 100% via AWS infrastructure?

    Hi all,

    Photos from the December meetup in Sydney are now up here http://www.studiosysadmins.com/photologue/gallery/2014-12-ssa-sydney-deluxe/

    Thanks to everyone who came along, to Martin from StormFX for the beers and to Dylan, Michael and everyone at Deluxe for being such gracious hosts.

    A big thank you to Peter Galloway from AWS for braving the crazy weather and crazier sysadmins to come and give a great presentation.

    Studios 100% on AWS - WAS: Photos from Sydney Meetup

    The cool thing is that you can now connect to an Amazon Workstation instance with a ZeroClient. The not so cool thing is that for now, the largest Amazon Workstation instance you can get has 8GB, which isn't exactly going to make Maya, Houdini or Nuke very happy.
