HARMAN’s JBL ScreenArray® and VRX Series Loudspeakers Show Their Star Quality at the Academy Theater at Lighthouse International In New York

NORTHRIDGE, California – The Academy of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences (AMPAS®), known worldwide for its annual Academy Awards® ceremonies, recently completed a total remodeling of its East Coast showcase, the Academy Theater at Lighthouse International in New York City. The 220-seat auditorium was re-done in spectacular fashion, with an interior by renowned theater designer Theo Kalomirakis and an audio system including JBL’s 5732 ScreenArray 3-way high-power loudspeakers, 4642A dual-18-inch subwoofers, and VRX932LA Constant Curvature loudspeakers with VRX918S subwoofers.

Lighthouse International is a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting vision loss, and its headquarters is host to the Academy Theater. The Academy financed and upgraded all projection and sound equipment according to its standards, while Lighthouse International board member Charles S. Cohen and his wife Clo, financed the beautification of the space. Digital Media Systems of New York, a specialist in providing projection and sound for the motion picture industry, was contracted to install the new audio/video system.

“Since the Lighthouse Theater is the Academy’s East Coast showplace, we knew the sound and picture quality had to be nothing less than the absolute best,” noted Gregg Paliotta of Digital Media Systems. “However, all the speakers had to be completely hidden. Designer Theo Kalomirakis understands the importance of great sound as a vital part of the cinema experience – yet was insistent that the speakers should not intrude upon the elegant interior design of the Academy Theater.”

“The installation is also unique in that it’s really two installations in one,” Paliotta pointed out. “The Lighthouse Theater is used as both a screening room for films and as a traditional stage for concerts, plays and other events. When films are being shown, the Microperf cinema projection screen rolls down from the ceiling. Then a motorized masking, scrim and house curtain system is engaged. When in final position, the stage has turned into an amazing screening room front end.”

“Our solution to accommodate the theater’s dual-purpose nature seems obvious in retrospect – we installed two separate audio systems. We went with JBL ScreenArray 5732 loudspeakers and 4642A subwoofers for movie screenings, and JBL VRX932LA loudspeakers and VRX918S subs for everything else.”

“The architecture wasn’t the easiest to work with, as there were ‘wings’ projecting from the walls on either side of the stage that had to be dealt with, but Kalomirakis and I came up with the solution of building the three VRX932LA speakers per side right into the wall with one VRX918S per side, and hiding the line arrays behind fabric.”

Placing the ScreenArray 5732 speakers and 4642A subwoofers required a little more ingenuity. Paliotta’s solution: “We mounted the ScreenArray speakers and subwoofers on wheels. The staff rolls them in behind the acoustically transparent perforated screen when movies are being shown, and rolls them out after the closing credits. Instead of figuring out how to locate and hide such massive speakers and subwoofers, we came upon the idea of just keeping them off the stage when not in use, and as a result, not having anything to hide in the first place!”

The result is optimized sound quality for all the Lighthouse Theater’s presentations. “It wasn’t ever not going to be JBL product,” noted Paliotta. “I’ve been a projection and sound supervisor for AMPAS for 10 years, and I know the capabilities of JBL. The ScreenArray 5732 loudspeakers are proven performers that are specifically designed for a cinema environment, and can be placed behind a perforated screen without adverse acoustic effects. The VRX932LA speakers and 4642A subwoofers gave us the coverage, clarity and low-end presence and articulation we needed in their respective applications.”

BSS Soundweb London processors are used as the digital crossovers for the speakers and subwoofers.

Hitachi Unveils CP-WX8240 and CP-X8150 Installation Series 3LCD Projectors

CHULA VISTA, California, February 15, 2012 — Hitachi America, Ltd., Digital Media Division, Business Solutions Group today announced the introduction of its CP-WX8240 and CP-X8150 3LCD Installation Series projectors, delivering unmatched reliability and quality, flexibility and the lowest cost of ownership on the market. The new models offer higher brightness, versatile connectivity, networking capability and many additional improvements, along with complete ease of use.

The CP-WX8240 and CP-X8150 provide a comprehensive array of connection options including two HDMI inputs, which address the increasing demand for digital connectivity. Both models have motorized focus, zoom and lens shift, enabling easy adjustment of the image. An optional wireless adapter enables users to connect their PC to the projector via a wireless network. This adapter supports IEEE802.11b/g and the latest 11n.

In addition to the 1.5x zoom lens that is supplied with both projectors, three optional additional lenses are available to accommodate a wide variety of projection distances. Large lens shift allows users to readjust the position of the image to perfectly fit the screen. Their center lens design also makes it easy to align the projector with the screen.

The CP-WX8240 delivers native WXGA resolution with 4,000 ANSI lumens brightness and 3,000:1 contrast, while the CP-X8150 offers XGA resolution, 5,000 ANSI lumens brightness and 3:000:1 contrast, for brighter images with more vivid colors than previous models with screen sizes up to 300 inches. Both models can be placed on a stand or tabletop, or ceiling-mounted.

The CP-WX8240 and CP-X8150 feature two computer inputs and a monitor out, two USB inputs for use with a USB memory stick, mouse or wireless adapter and an RJ-45 Ethernet jack for network connectivity. A/V connections include component, S-Video and composite video inputs, three audio inputs and an audio out, and both models have 16 Watts of audio (two 8-Watt stereo speakers). In addition, the CP-WX8240 and CP-X8150 have an RS-232C port and remote control inputs and outputs for integrated A/V system control.

Digital keystone (horizontal and vertical) and Perfect Fit also make it easy to properly position the image. Thanks to the wide lens shift and Perfect Fit feature, the Installation Series also offers Versa-Stack, enabling seamless stacking of two projectors through an RS-232 connection. This enables users to double the brightness of the image.

The CP-WX8240 and CP-X8150 feature DICOM® (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) Simulation Mode, which is ideal for viewing grayscale medical images, such as X-rays, for training and educational purposes.

The CP-WX8240 and CP-X8150 provide networking capability, allowing them to be remotely controlled via a LAN (Local Area Network) connection. Hitachi’s exclusive PJMan® Projector Management software gives users the ability to operate and monitor the projectors and receive diagnostic information from a remote location, making them ideal for installations where multiple projectors are used.

Both projectors offer a wealth of useful convenience and operational features. A Template function displays white or black lines to make writing on a whiteboard or blackboard easier. The PC-Less Presentation feature enables users to project images directly from a USB drive or other media, eliminating the need to connect a laptop or desktop computer. Each projector model will be equipped with a high-performance filter that can last up to 15,000 hours without cleaning, saving significant maintenance time.

An Input Source Naming function lets the user customize the names of input sources. Both models come with a remote control that provides MyMemory, MyText, MySource and MyScreen buttons for fast access to frequently used functions and sources. The CP-WX8240 and CP-X8150 provide extensive security features including a heavy-duty security bar and Kensington Lock slot and a transition detector that prevents unauthorized use if the projector is moved.

NFL Films Deploys Fairlight EVO and Xynergi Consoles For A Winning Strategy to Deliver Outstanding Production

MOUNT LAUREL, New Jersey- In order to achieve the highest level of audio quality in production and post-production of sports-themed entertainment and documentaries, NFL Films utilizes Fairlight’s EVO and Xynergi consoles to create material for the National Football League’s weekly highlights, analysis shows and documentaries featuring the league’s greatest players and performances.

At its Mount Laurel, NJ facility, NFL Films occupies 16 audio suites for production work, using the Xynergi console with the addition of five EVO’s in the past 18 months. “Our engineering staff was able to add the EVO consoles into our Xynergi rooms with very minimal downtime,” states Vince Caputo, Supervising Sound Mixer at NFL Films. “We knew the software and automation well, so adding the EVO control surfaces was an easy upgrade operationally as well.”

During the season, NFL Films produces weekly shows for a variety of outlets including NFL Network, ESPN, Showtime, The NBC Sports Network and Velocity. Their work in featured on programs such as NFL Films Presents, Inside The NFL, NFL Turning Point, and SoundFX.

NFL Films also produces documentaries and specials for HBO, such as the Emmy Award winning Lombardi, the recently premiered Namath, and the hit reality series Hard Knocks, a behind-the-scenes look into NFL training camps. Their America’s Game and A Football Life series both run on NFL Network, and have garnered critical acclaim.

“Sonically, the Fairlight product has always been brilliant, but the other main attraction for us is speed,” Caputo continued. “The bulk of our work is straight up editing of dialogue and nat sound, general track prep and sound effects placement. For all of that, the speed and flexibility of the Xynergi is unmatched. We also rely on the clip-based DSP, so that when we reach back in to our archives for a sound clip, we can import it with all of the work done, level, eq, rendered plug-ins, fades, etc. That saves us from having to do that same job twice.”

“With both the clip-based and channel strip control, there is an over-abundance of power and flexibility, so there are few boundaries,” Caputo said.

Combining the Xynergi with the EVO has only made the process easier for NFL Films, allowing the editing and mixing process to overlap. “There is much less delineation between the pre-dubbing and mixing processes, the mix is always on.” Simultaneous work helps to keep workflow moving, which is crucial for the NFL team.

Fairlight is an integral part of how NFL Films operates, as shown by their dedication to the products for nearly 20 years. “Our Fairlight network and file server are at the core of our audio operation. The server houses all of our shared data, sound efx libraries, HD video that we simultaneously stream from multiple rooms, and archives dating back over 20 years. Very little data is stored locally, making it fast and easy to work on the same project in multiple rooms,” Caputo mentioned.

For Caputo and the rest of the team at NFL Films, the ‘Fairlight way’ of operating is the only way to do it. “Our audio infrastructure and workflow are built around the Fairlight operating system. There are so many unique features in the Xynergi/EVO combination that you can’t find elsewhere. If you never had them, you wouldn’t miss them, but once you get used to that power, you can’t do without it.”

Caputo explained the long-standing relationship with Fairlight and how NFL Films has contributed in driving product development. “They trust us to give them reliable feedback, and have used it to implement features that are beneficial to us, as well as all of their end users. It is a powerful relationship we are proud to have.”

DANIEL WANG ZHERUN TO BECOME RTW’S SALES MANAGER FOR CHINA AND SOUTHEAST ASIA

Pro Audio Vendor Plans to Establish Representative Office in Beijing

COLOGNE, GERMANY, 15 FEBRUARY 2012 – RTW, a leading manufacturer and distributor of professional audio metering and control devices for studio recording and radio and TV broadcast applications, has appointed Daniel Wang Zherun as the company’s new Sales Manager for China and Southeast Asia. Wang Zherun’s top priority will be the establishment of a new representative office in Beijing.

In 2009 and 2010, Daniel Wang Zherun worked as RTW’s business development manager in Beijing, which has provided him with a deep understanding of both the RTW product range and the market environment in China and Southeast Asia. As sales manager, he will now assume additional responsibilities for developing those markets and establishing a more efficient sales infrastructure.

“We are very happy to have Daniel Wang Zherun back on our team,” says Mahmoud Chatah, RTW’s Director of Marketing and Sales. “While the local presence of the RTW brand on the Chinese and Southeast-Asian markets is currently strong, Wang Zherun will continue to expand our options in those markets. The establishment of a representative office in China is a significant advancement for us in that region. RTW has already seen much positive feedback from Asian retailers and users.”

“In the future, RTW’s market-leading metering and monitoring systems will play a much greater role in China’s fast-evolving broadcast market,” adds Wang Zherun. “This is particularly true with regard to the rise of HDTV and the loudness war, which is a widely discussed issue in China, too.”

North Coast Church Uses Broadcast Pix Granite To Feed ‘Video Venues’ Throughout Campus

Billerica, Massachusetts – Broadcast Pix™ today announced that North Coast Church is using a Granite™ 1000 Video Control Center™ to produce HD coverage of services and provide live feeds to multiple “video venues” on its main campus in Vista, Calif. David Hepburn, video production specialist, said 11 of 26 services each weekend are shared live via fiber and HD-SDI to a café and other venues across campus, some of which still require an SD feed.

“The beauty of the Granite for us – and the main reason we bought it – is that it has all the outputs we need,” Hepburn said. “It was a cost effective solution, and a big thing for us was multi-def.”

Beyond live campus distribution, the church records several versions of its services for a variety of needs. One feed, for example, provides on-demand streaming for the church’s Web site, www.northcoastchurch.com. (Hepburn hopes eventually to provide live streaming for the Web as well.) The church has satellite campuses in Fallbrook and Carlsbad, Calif., each of which receives a copy of the Vista campus Saturday night service for local playback.

Unlike many other churches that strive to create a broadcast-like presentation of their sermons through multi-camera production, North Coast Church uses a single Sony HD camcorder and simply tracks the pastor. Hepburn said the idea is to make the experience less like watching television and more like being a part of the live congregation.

As a result, Hepburn said, North Coast Church uses minimal graphics and almost no clips during productions. The few lower-thirds that are used are created in Photoshop and easily transferred to the Granite via Fluent™ Watch Folders. “For me, having a switcher that’s connected to my network just makes my workflow simpler,” he added.

In the control room, which is housed in the same building as the main venue, Granite’s built-in Fluent-View feeds two 55-inch LCD monitors. Hepburn said the customizable on-screen layout is simplified for his crew, which is mostly volunteers who have not been extensively trained in video production. “It’s easier for them to see what’s going on and execute properly,” he said.

North Coast Church moved into its current Vista facility in July 2010 and has been using its Granite system since December 2010. The system was installed by VMI, Inc., an integrator with offices in California and Washington. “As a church, we had to be realistic about the costs involved,” Hepburn noted. “Granite – that’s one area where we didn’t have to sacrifice to get a great product.”

About Broadcast Pix Broadcast Pix is the leader in live video production systems. Its Video Control Centers™ empower operators with patented techniques that combine cameras, clips and graphics to create dynamic live video. The integration of a multi-format switcher, clip store, graphics system with a Harris or Chyron CG, and device controls provides the lowest cost of ownership at a fraction of the cost of a conventional control room to buy, staff and operate. Systems range from compact units controlled by a touch-screen or voice-automation to sophisticated 2 M/E control panels. Customers include leading broadcast, corporate, education, religious, government, webcast, entertainment and mobile studios in more than 110 countries. Learn more at www.broadcastpix.com.

ATK Audiotek Utilizes HARMAN’s JBL VERTEC® Line Arrays for Custom Cart System and House PA at Lucas Oil Stadium For Super Bowl XLVI

NORTHRIDGE, California – ATK Audiotek recently provided audio services for Super Bowl XLVI, marking the 15th straight year the company has been involved in the country’s biggest sporting event. Once again, ATK Audiotek deployed its custom-designed cart system with HARMAN’s JBL VERTEC® line arrays for the Halftime Show and Post-Game Show of the Super Bowl, held at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana on February 5, 2012. The carts were also used for Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton’s rendition of “America the Beautiful” and Kelly Clarkson’s performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Super Bowl XLVI was broadcast via NBC, and for the third straight year became the most watched Super Bowl in history, viewed by an estimated 111.3 million people. Madonna starred in the Halftime Show, which also included guest appearances by Nicki Minaj, Cee Lo and MIA. The Post-Game Show included the Lombardi Trophy presentation, awarded to this year’s NFL champion New York Giants.

For Super Bowl XLVI, ATK Audiotek deployed its custom-designed cart system, which allows for easy setup between events, and quick transport of the VERTEC loudspeakers on and off the field. Each of the 18 carts included four JBL VERTEC VT4889 fullsize line array elements and two VT4880A fullsize arrayable subwoofers.

In addition to its cart system, ATK also utilized the JBL VERTEC and VLA line arrays that comprise the house PA system at Lucas Oil Stadium. ESCO Communications installed the system, which was designed by WJHW, for Lucas Oil Stadium’s opening in 2008.

“The VERTEC line arrays provide an optimal combination of light weight, fidelity and output power capability, making them ideal for our cart system,” said Brett Valasek, General Manager, ATK Audiotek. “The in-house PA system at Lucas Oil Stadium also sounds terrific and helped us deliver high-quality audio to the crowd of approximately 70,000 people.”
