Austin, TX, March 22, 2010 – Audio specialist Sennheiser provided spectacular sound for a diverse range of artists during the SXSW Music Festival as its microphones and wireless transmitters—as well as the revolutionary loudspeakers from distributed brand K-array—were put through the paces over the course of the three-day event. Sennheiser sponsored busy stages at the PureVolume House, Maggie Mae’s and Speakeasy–each located at the heart of Austin’s music scene.

The stage at PureVolume House featured a set of the K-array Redline KR200s loudspeakers, which deliver ‘no compromise sound’ within an astonishingly small footprint. Artists were also provided with a Sennheiser SKM 2000 wireless handheld transmitter with MMD 935-1 capsule and a full complement of evolution microphones for reinforcing guitars, drums and other instruments. Similar equipment was used during performances at Maggie Mae’s and Speakeasy.

Sky Chooses Vizrt for Stereo 3D Channel

March 22, 2010 — Sky Sports today announced that it has chosen Vizrt as the core graphics platform for its 3DTV channel, due to launch in April.
Darren Long, Sky Sports’ Director of Operations described his reasons for the decision, “We have worked with Vizrt for more than ten years.
They have supported us with excellent graphics for our SD sports coverage, then later for HD and now they will do so again for 3D. Vizrt has always been a real-time 3D system and this meant it was easy for our designers to convert Sky Sports’ current HD designs to their stereo 3D equivalents. The results are stunning and the graphics drew special attention from viewers when we recently ran our world’s first stereo 3D football match trial. I am sure that Vizrt’s graphics will enhance our new 3D channel, just as they do for all our other channels.? more
