The DC Universe just got a whole lot bigger! Must see DC, launching this October on FOX8 Batwoman starring Australia’s Ruby Rose


Media Release: Friday August 23, 2019

The DC Universe just got a whole lot bigger!
Must see DC, launching this October on FOX8
Batwoman starring Australia’s Ruby Rose

Plus new DC series Doom Patrol, Pennyworth and Swamp Thing
And all new seasons of Supergirl, The Flash and Arrow

Must see DC – Stream this October on Foxtel and screen on FOX8

The best of the DC Universe is coming to Foxtel this October, with brand new blockbuster franchises including the highly anticipated Batwoman starring Australia’s own Ruby Rose, plus new series Doom Patrol, Pennyworth and Swamp Thing, along with new seasons of returning favourites Supergirl, The Flash and Arrow. New series and seasons will launch this October across one massive premiere week on FOX8, the home of the best superhero and supernatural dramas and will be available to stream on Foxtel.

The most highly anticipated new series from DC, Batwoman starring Australian actor Ruby Rose will premiere Tuesday October 8 at 8:30pm, express from the US. Three years after Batman mysteriously disappeared, Gotham is a city in despair, and it is under the watch of Jacob Kane and his military-grade Crows Private Security. When the Alice in Wonderland gang targets the firm, Kane’s daughter Kate returns home, deciding that if she wants to help her family and her city, she will have to become the one thing her father loathes — a dark knight vigilante. With the help of her stepsister Mary and the crafty Luke Fox, the son of Wayne Enterprises’ tech guru Lucius Fox, Kate Kane continues the legacy of her missing cousin, Bruce Wayne. Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate soars through the shadowed streets of Gotham as Batwoman.

Premiering Thursday October 10 at 8:30pm, Doom Patrol is a team of traumatised and downtrodden superheroes, each of whom has suffered a horrible accident that gave them superhuman abilities but also left them scarred and disfigured. The members of the team have found their purpose through The Chief and have come together to investigate some of the world’s weirdest phenomena. After The Chief mysteriously disappears, though, the reluctant heroes find themselves called to action by Cyborg, who comes to them with a mission that they cannot refuse. Doom Patrol — part support group, part superhero team — is a band of super powered freaks fighting for a world that wants nothing to do with them.

Set in a dystopian version of Sixties London, Pennyworth premiering Thursday October 10 at 9:30pm, follows the life of Alfred Pennyworth, as a former British SAS soldier in his 20s who forms a security company and goes to work with Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge) in 1960s London. Not yet Bruce’s father, Thomas is a young billionaire from the East Coast of the United States, who finds himself in need of Alfred’s services, especially with a mysterious organisation, known as the Raven Society, out there and causing all sorts of trouble. The series comes from Gotham creator Bruno Heller and that show’s chief director Danny Cannon, based on the DC characters created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger.

Premiering on Friday October 11 at 8:30pm, Swamp Thing delves into a mysterious and deadly epidemic in Louisiana. Based on the DC Comics characters created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, and executive produced by James Wan (Aquaman, The Conjuring, Saw), Swamp Thing follows Abby Arcane as she investigates what seems to be a deadly swamp-born virus in a small town in Louisiana but soon discovers that the swamp holds mystical and terrifying secrets. When unexplainable and chilling horrors emerge from the murky marsh, no one is safe.

Returning series Supergirl is back for season 5, premiering Tuesday October 8 at 9:30pm, express from the US. In the new season Kara Zor-El aka Supergirl (played by Melissa Benoist) will be sporting a new Kryptonian supersuit — the first revamp since her co-worker, friend, and confidante Winn Schott designed her iconic red and blue gear in season one. Two new characters will also be joining the action in National City for the upcoming season. Andrea Rojas (aka Acrata) played by Julie Gonzalo is a polished businesswoman and heir to a Central American tech empire, who is now making a hostile advance into the world of media. Unapologetic and unafraid to make waves, she also holds a mystical secret. UK-based actor Staz Nair will play hardened reporter William Dey, an original character created for the series. On the surface, he is a cynic and a sell-out who looks down on Kara’s earnest idealism. Dey’s not interested in making friends, he just wants to get the story — but his ties to the criminal underworld could prove problematic.

Back for a sixth season is The Flash, premiering Wednesday October 9 at 8:30pm, express from the US. This season, there is a new doctor in Central City, and he has everyone’s pulse racing! Sendhil Ramamurthy plays Dr. Ramsey Rosso, a brilliant physician with a genius intellect, and the world’s leading expert on hematological oncology. A former colleague of S.T.A.R. Labs’ Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Rosso rekindles their friendship after they are reunited by an unexpected event. But their long-time bond is quickly shattered when the doctor’s desire to defy the laws of nature takes him down a dark path…one that transforms Rosso from an old friend into the most chilling villain Team Flash has ever faced: the monstrous Bloodwork.

Long running series Arrow returns for the eighth and final season on Wednesday October 16 at 9:30pm, express from the US. With the reappearance of The Monitor (LaMonica Garrett) in the season seven finale of Arrow, there is no doubt that Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Team Arrow will be facing a “crisis” unlike anything they have previously faced before. We meet Diggle, Jr. — knowns as J.J. – the Flashpoint-born son of John Diggle and Lyla Michaels – in the future as the leader of the Deathstroke Gang, where he faces off against Mia and his adopted brother, Connor. Barnett joins new series regulars Katherine McNamara, Joseph David-Jones and Ben Lewis as Mia Smoak, Connor Hawke and Oliver Queen’s adopted son, William Clayton, respectively.

Kicking off in December, the DC galaxies will collide, in the highly anticipated DC crossover event – Crisis of Infinite Earths. Four of DC comics most popular returning shows: The Flash, Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl, will join forces with the DC universe’s newest superhero, Batwoman. The crossover will link the final season of Arrow, the original brand that lends its name to the Arrowverse collective, with the inaugural season of Batwoman. The DC crossover event will include 3 episodes in December and 2 episodes in January airing on FOX8, the home of the best superhero and supernatural dramas.

Sony focuses on AI, displays, automation and control at Integrate 2019 On stand E10

Sony focuses on AI, displays, automation and control at Integrate 2019
On stand E10

SYDNEY, 22 August 2019 – Sony Australia will be focusing on the key areas of AI, displays, automation and control on stand E10 at this year’s Integrate Expo from 27-29 August at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

In the field of AI Sony will demonstrate its first Artificial Intelligence (AI) based Edge Analytics solution, the REA-C1000, which allows users to create video content in real time, without the need for professional training, additional staff or equipment.

Sony REA-C1000

To watch a video of the Edge Analytics Sony REA-C1000 solution in action go to:: https://youtu.be/lsrQm6slrh4

The compact and lightweight REA-C1000 uses its advanced AI-based video analytics technology to analyse the input received from connecting cameras, automatically extract the object in focus and combine it with other images in real time on a GPU (Graphics Processor Unit). This unique technology uses motion/face detection and colour/shape recognition, effectively making the REA-C1000 the powerful brain to any connecting camera and AV setup to create professional content in a cost-effective manner for education, government and corporate organisations, keeping audiences engaged.

Next on the hit list are Sony’s BRAVIA 4K HDR display partnerships with Kramer Technology and Exterity.

With the integration of Kramer Control BRAINware into Sony’s BZ35F series of BRAVIA 4K HDR professional displays, the control processor software turns the already impressive displays into the centrepiece of any AV installation with game changing control, automation and analytics features.

Kramer’s advanced control features on Sony BRAVIA Pro Series displays

The software-based control solution makes it innately scalable and future proof, providing unparalleled control and automation tools for virtually any space. From modern meeting rooms to advanced digital signage applications, Kramer Control BRAINware eliminates the need for additional control processor hardware and cabling, greatly simplifying installation and reducing costs.

Sony has also been working closely with IP video technology leader Exterity to achieve seamless integration between Exterity’s ArtioGuest interactive guest experience portal and the latest Sony BRAVIA professional displays, which have Chromecast support built in.

The latest Sony professional displays benefit from built-in Chromecast functionality, enabling users to easily share content from subscription services, such as Netflix, YouTube, Kayo Sports, Foxtel Now and Spark Sports from their mobile device directly to the Sony screen.

This removes the need for a Chromecast dongle and other external 3rd party devices and services, simplifying ongoing support and maintenance. ArtioGuest, with its direct access to the Sony built-in Chromecast functionality, securely connects Sony TVs, Chromecast services and the guest’s mobile device, while protecting the user’s personal data.

Last but by no means least is Sony’s All-in-One Meeting Display Solution – BRAVIA Meeting software licence WQ-BM1, designed to make every meeting more productive with BRAVIA 4K professional displays – FW-BZ35F Series.

More on BRAVIA Meeting
BRAVIA Meeting is an easy to use software solution using BRAVIA as an effective meeting display screen that;
Centrally manage and control all connected displays either onsite or remotely
Improve meeting productivity by solving typical meeting room problems with the sharing of presentation content on a screen by both the presenter and participants
When there are no meetings underway, you can easily display daily corporate news or point to your company website
Integrates meeting room bookings with most major calendar applications and management platforms including Microsoft 365, Outlook and Google Calendar

This highly-scalable all-in-one information sharing and display management solution is ideal for smaller and medium-sized businesses and adds a professional accent to boardrooms, meeting rooms and huddle spaces by enabling customisation of the content shown on a BRAVIA display screen. You can create a homepage with your company logo, include a welcome message or simply show your company website. Further to this customisation, for BRAVIA display used in meeting rooms you can show the name of the room, booking schedule and any other useful information on the BRAVIA display screen.

There are also a range of companion apps and accessories that enhance real-time communication between meeting room participants enabling you to wirelessly share screenshots, pointer movements and hand-drawn annotations between BRAVIA 4K Professional Displays and participants’ own devices (PCs and tablets) using the BRAVIA Meeting client app. Coupled with Sony’s touch overlay panels, you can turn a BRAVIA FW-BZ35F Series display into an interactive touch screen. At Integrate we will also be introducing Sony’s own full HD USB camera and microphone unit – FWA-CE100 to complete our All-in-One Meeting Display Solution offering.

To see working demos on all of the above visit Sony Australia stand E10 at this year’s Integrate Expo from 27-29 August at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
