NEWS 14 CAROLINA SELECTS FOR-A MBP-100CK HD/SD CHROMA KEYERS FOR WEATHER SEGMENTS

Raleigh, NC – News 14 Carolina, North Carolina’s 24-hour cable news network, recently turned to FOR-A when looking for a new, networkable HD/SD chroma keyer solution, and FOR-A delivered with the FOR-A MBP-100CK.

The unique aspect of the MBP-100CK that was particularly appealing to Dawson Heath, broadcast engineer at News 14 Carolina, is its ability to operate the chroma keyers remotely. “We were able to network the FOR-A keyers,? he explained. “We have various newsrooms around the state, and we do much of our work out of the Raleigh facility, so the remote access to the FOR-A chroma keyer functions provides us with a big advantage over using other products.?

Sennheiser Helps Light the Spirit of the Season as Crowds Gather for Tree Lighting in Rockefeller Center

New York – November 29, 2010: Tomorrow evening, thousands of people will gather at Rockefeller Plaza for the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony. The classic event, which has been an annual tradition since 1933, will feature live performances by Susan Boyle, Charice and many others. Wireless First, a Mount Vernon, NY-based production specialist, has chosen Sennheiser to provide the wireless infrastructure for the event for the ninth consecutive year. The event will appear on local and national prime-time television, broadcasting to millions of people.

Aside from the obvious logistical challenges of mounting and decorating a giant Norwegian Spruce with 30,000 environmentally friendly LED lights, Rockefeller Center presents mammoth Radio Frequency (RF) challenges to wireless operators. Rockefeller Plaza is in extremely close proximity to Radio City Music Hall and most of the major television broadcast networks, presenting a significant challenge that can only be overcome by superior wireless equipment.

Trio of Soundcraft Vi Consoles For Doctor Who Live Tour

Three Soundcraft Vi consoles–two Vi6 and a Vi1–were supplied to BBC Worldwide by ADLIB Audio for the recent Doctor Who Live tour, which visited nine major UK arenas in October and November. All desks were originally supplied by Sound Technology Ltd, Soundcraft’s UK/ROI distributors.

This action-packed stage version of the cult TV series stars a selection of classic and favourite Doctor Who monsters including The Daleks and Cybermen, with Nigel Planer as ‘intergalactic showman’ and archetypal baddie, Vorgenson.

The tour’s 270-degree sound system was specified by XL Events’ Rich Rowley, who was also instrumental in choosing ADLIB to supply the kit. The sound company itself fielded a vastly experienced team, including Tony Szabo (systems engineer), Chris Leckie (FOH, on a Soundcraft Vi6), with Fergus Mount handling audio playback on a Soundcraft Vi1, and Marc Peers mixing monitors on a second Vi6.
