Famous Moscow Live Venue Switches To JBL VERTEC® Line Arrays

One of Moscow’s landmark live music venues, B1 Maximum, recently re-opened after a major refurbishment and change of identity to A2. A hallmark of the updated venue is a new live-performance sound system. Primary components of the new sound system, unveiled to the public on December 18, include JBL VERTEC® line arrays, sold through Harman Professional distributors A&T Trade and installed by prominent St. Petersburg-based concert sound rental company, Euroshow.

A2 is the latest metamorphosis of a building that was originally one of the Ordzhonikidze Moscow Machine-Tool Plant workshops, named after famous Georgian Bolshevik Sergo Ordzhonikidze. The original factory dates back to the 1930s, with a 3-story addition having been built in 1974.

B1 Maximum opened on December 7, 2006, and has presented many international artists such as Iggy Pop, Sinead O’Connor, Franz Ferdinand, Chuck Berry, Liza Minnelli, Evanescence, Blondie, Brian Ferry, Marilyn Manson and Whitesnake. The more

Lightware DVI-I Input Boards Bridge the Gap as Customers Upgrade From Analog to Digital Systems

Budapest-based Lightware Visual Engineering is introducing fully-functional DVI-I input boards for its pro line of matrices in mid-January 2011, according to the company’s US distributor Lightware U.S.A.

“This is the ‘Missing Link’ in the Lightware product mix,” says sales and marketing associate Blake Dudash. “DVI-I allows an analog signal to come into a Lightware matrix and be converted into a digital signal, so Lightware can accept any type of video from any analog or digital source (except SDI and HD-SDI) and route it in our matrix.

“Because most people are converting from analog to digital systems, they usually have some analog sources that they still need to access,” he explains. “Before, you would have had to use an external converter to gain that accessibility. Now, you can manage all analog or digital video signals in one Lightware matrix.”

The DVI-I input boards accommodate any size Lightware more
