Menlo Park multi-campus house of worship celebrates impressive systems upgrade

Atlanta, GA (3-14-2012) – Paul Wonsek Associates (PWA) of Marietta, GA, and Michael Garrison Associates (MGA) of Fresno, CA, recently implemented an impressive $2 million renovation of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church. This ambitious project included upgrades to the existing acoustics, audio and video systems in addition to other building systems upgrades. Menlo Park Presbyterian Church’s “home campus” attracts a diverse group of people to multiple weekend services held in two separate venues. More than 3,000 people attend services over four sites on a weekend.

With their home campus in Menlo Park, California, the Menlo Park Presbyterian network delivers 11 services each weekend from multiple locations. The main weekly programs take place at the Menlo Park headquarters, and are then broadcast live to their satellite locations in San Mateo, the Bay Area and Mountain View. Worship services hosted in the Menlo Park sanctuary include both traditional and informal services, where a live worship band and video messaging enlist the newly upgraded projection and audio equipment.

Three retractable projection screens were installed in the 1,100 capacity main sanctuary: one 9.0′x 16.0′Stewart Filmscreen with Ultramatte 130 and two 7.2′x 12.8′ Stewart Filmscreen with Ultramatte 130. With a long throw distance plus ambient light to contend with, three 10,000 lumen Digital Projection TITAN 1080p-700 projectors were chosen to deliver the imagery to each screen.

For Durst and MGA, the project was a resounding success. Said Garrison, “We went from working with a church concerned that their budget might limit what the systems could accomplish to people thrilled with the finished product.”

Many thanks to Menlo Park Presbyterian Church, Michael Garrison Associates and everyone else involved that selected DP’s precision displays for this commanding installation.

Megaplex Theatres Launches VIP Experience with Christie Projectors

Christie, a global leader in visual display technology, is providing the 4K DLP Cinema projection solution at a new screen at the Megaplex Theatres at Jordan Commons, which debuts March 15 with VIP seating, table service and full reclining chairs as part of Megaplex’s transition to complete digital projection throughout its chain. Megaplex, a leading independent cinema chain in Utah, is converting all of its screens to digital projection, drawing from the Christie Solaria Series. The new projectors, including the Christie CP4230 driving the VIP experience at Megaplex Jordan Commons, are being installed by CLACO Equipment and Service.

Specific to Megaplex Theatres at Jordan Commons, Christie’s CP4230 was chosen to deliver massive, crisp resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels, with 34,000 lumens brightness, to make 3D movies come alive. This is in keeping with Megaplex’s emphasis on providing an industry-leading viewing experience for its guests. It is this commitment that led the chain to evaluate various suppliers for digital projection in 2011, and then chose Christie equipment and CLACO to deliver it.

“We know that moving to digital projection provides our guests with the best image quality, and helps us keep filling the seats for blockbuster titles as studios release them. After looking at the available choices and with the advice of CLACO, we decided that Christie had the best product, both technically and in terms of energy savings, service and support,” said Blake Andersen, senior vice president and general manager of Megaplex Theatres. “These new projectors let us offer more options to our advertisers and partners as well.”

Noted Eric Butterworth, sales manager at CLACO, “Christie was easily our recommended choice for Megaplex. The combination of Christie Digital Cinema projectors, Christie’s excellent customer service and 24-hour tech support, and their Christie Digital Xenolite Lamp (CDXL) technology were just some of the reasons why we went with Christie.

“CDXL lamps give us more options in terms of the brightness delivered on the screen, to achieve best image quality. This flexibility means that I could go with a lower lamp size, and still maintain the necessary brightness that the customer required, which provided greater savings,” said Butterworth. “For example, rather than be forced to run a 6,000 watt lamp in a non-Christie projector, I opted to install a Christie DCP with a 4,500 watt lamp, delivering the same or better brightness, with the attendant cost savings.”

Christie’s warranty and service plus packages provide Megaplex with peace of mind across its theatre chain. These services range from quick access to spare parts, on-site preventative maintenance/emergency service, 24/7/365 remote monitoring and technical phone support from Christie’s Network Operations Center.

Christie solutions installed or to be installed by CLACO at Megaplex Theatres include the CP2220, CP2230, Christie ACT (automation controller) and CP4230, as well as the Gefen Scaler scaling and switching unit.

“When our customers make the transition to digital projection, they’re looking for the terrific image quality and technical capabilities that digital offers,” said Craig Sholder, Christie’s vice president, Entertainment Solutions. “We work with local partners to develop a solution that meets the customer’s unique needs, and provide ongoing service and support, to make the transition smooth and rewarding.”

Megaplex Chain Stands Out Among Independent Exhibitors
The Megaplex Theatre chain (www.megaplextheatres.com) is known for innovative architecture and commitment to the community. The flagship Megaplex 17 at Jordan Commons in Sandy, Utah, was built on the former site of Jordan High School and the lobby was designed to look like downtown Salt Lake City in 1870. In 2002, it was North America’s highest grossing theater for the opening weekend of “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.” Less than a year later, the theater sold over 120,000 tickets for “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl,” making this location the top-grossing movie theater in the world for this film.

With six multi-screen complexes in Utah, Megaplex Theatres was founded in 1999 by the former owner of the Utah Jazz, Larry H. Miller, and is now operated by his son Greg Miller, CEO of the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies. Two of the locations share screens with nearby museums where museum content is viewed during the day and Megaplex offers first-run movies in the evenings. Many locations offer reserved seating, lots of additional food options and D-box (moveable) seating.

Vancouver Canucks use projected imagery to create unprecedented fan experience

Atlanta, GA (3-14-2012) – Established in 1970, the Vancouver Canucks now call the 475,000 square foot Rogers Arena home. Already well-respected as the official ice hockey venue during the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, the Canucks brand and creative team wanted to set a new, and largely unchartered, direction for the venue. Led by creative director Mark Raham, the Canucks contacted Epic Production Technologies to discuss large-scale imagery solutions for the venue. Given the numerous installation details to consider, as well as the large surface area that needed to be illuminated, Larry Darling, VP of Sales for Epic Production Technologies, suggested Digital Projection International’s (DPI) high-brightness projectors.

After initially selecting lower lumen displays, four 30,000 lumen LIGHTNING 45 sx+ displays were eventually chosen. The Canucks couldn’t be more pleased, as Raham remarked, “We’re so glad we went with the higher lumen displays because they have so much visual punch. We’re discovering new ways to use them every time we work with them.” The LIGHTNING displays are used in conjunction with Hippotizer servers and a Datapath X4 processor to project a blended and mapped 200′ x 80′ image on the ice. To add dimension and scale, the ice projections are complemented by four hanging scrims, reaching four storeys in height, creating a vertical projection surface above each corner of the ice surface.

In order for the projected imagery to fit within the frame of the rink, the projectors needed to be installed above the ice, as close to each center half of the ice as possible. This presented a challenge, however, as the LIGHTNING displays also had to be installed low enough to shoot under a massive clock. Furthermore, the projectors had to dodge lighting trusses, banners and other suspended accessories. It was decided that the LIGHTNING displays would be installed 90′ above the ice, enlisting the integrated pitch, roll and yaw adjustments found in DPI’s RapidRig rigging frames. The expanded lens shift capabilities inherent in the LIGHTNING platform continue to aid the team in precisely mapping their graphics to the ice surface.

With such powerful displays in their creative arsenal, the Canucks production team are regularly discovering new ways to, as Raham describes, “make the venue itself an all-encompassing, immersive experience.” To date, attendees will experience an approximately 10-12 minute custom-created pre-game ceremony, including imagery shown during national anthems. Additionally, at key moments in the game when action on the ice has paused, the displays reveal imagery mapped to specific surface details on the ice, such as boundary lines and logos. A massive light show occurs at the end of each intermission, enlisting the projectors to elevate the intensity level of the crowd with rock-concert styled effects. A final application includes the three stars presentation at the end of the game, with custom graphics accentuating the awards ceremony.

Darling and Raham are both elated with the impact the projectors have already made. According to Darling, “The upgraded fan experience really stood out during last year’s playoffs. TV broadcasters started to show the venue as soon as they possibly could so that they could show off the imagery.” Raham agrees, stating, “Our initial goal was to take the Canucks fan experience to the next level by making the venue come alive. Our fans expect and deserve to have an amazing experience every time they walk in the arena. We’ve had a great response so far and we can’t wait to unveil our next ideas.”

Martin Audio Showcases MLA Compact At Apollo Hammersmith

Martin Audio's Ferrit Rowe, Rob Hofkamp & Jim Jorgensen with MLA Compact

London––Martin Audio had such a high level of confidence in its new MLA Compact Multi-cellular loudspeaker array that the company booked the HMV Apollo Hammersmith over two days for its first international showcase.

This showcase provided the proper context for the MLA Compact’s official introduction to the media and Martin Audio’s global distributor network.

In his opening speech, Managing director Anthony Taylor referred to the 900 original MLA systems now out in the field, stating that the release of a Compact version was an inevitable consequence of the MLA’s success.

“We have been working on this really for the last 14 months and we are very excited by the concept.

“It has all the attributes of the original MLA—it is an incredibly powerful system, and the fact that it is scalable will put us into all kinds of different areas. The Compact is particularly well suited for installation projects as well as side fills for the MLA and venues up to 5,000 seats.”

He added, “I think the market expected us to go to a smaller box with the same characteristics, and this is really just the start of how we will deploy this technology.”

R&D director, Jason Baird, provided an in-depth presentation of the system before the two hangs of 12 elements rigged for the occasion were dramatically revealed (along with stacked DSX subs)––courtesy of the excellent production support provided by corporate event specialists, USS.

Reference tracks were used to demonstrate different optimizations — including spoken word (Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy), Jennifer Warnes’ Somebody, Somewhere and a blast of Rammstein.

Guests were then invited to walk the room—including up to the Circle—to experience the consistency of the cellular control, as well as to the back of the stage behind the hangs, where the sound levels were impressively quiet.

Martin Audio’s North American team- Rob Hofkamp (North American Sales Director), Ferrit Rowe (MLA Technical Training Manager), Jim Jorgensen (MLA Support Specialist)—was also on hand for the launch.

Asked about the MLA Compact’s potential in the U.S. and Canada, Hofkamp stated, “The MLA Compact is poised to make a dramatic impact on the U.S. market, both for fixed installations and regional sound companies. Its light weight, scalability and competitive pricing coupled with the power and seamless coverage of MLA technology, make it a market leader right out of the box.”

Digital Projection’s TITAN Quad Illuminates Regional Porsche 911 Launch

Atlanta, GA (3-8-2012) – Porsche fans are some of the most exuberant auto enthusiasts in the world. With this is mind, how do you launch a new Porsche model in a way that lives up to the expectations of the enthusiast community? An Atlanta-based Porsche dealership and Audio Automation & Theater, Inc. (AAT), an Atlanta-based luxury AV integrator, unveiled the solution. Using Digital Projection International’s (DPI) incredibly powerful TITAN Quad projector, 16,000 lumens of Porsche as Art imagery transformed the dealership’s front façade into a stunning visual display.

For over 11 years, AAT has specialized in state of the art home entertainment. However, through their multi-faceted team and fervent love of the Porsche brand, AAT has taken on the audio and video duties for numerous Porsche product launches over the years. Recently, the launch of the newest Porsche 911 (known within Porsche as the 991) allowed AAT the opportunity to project a 572″ x 270″ spectacle onto the front of dealership as a welcoming beacon to the launch attendees. The 633″ diagonal image included custom content created by the Porsche creative team, including test track footage of the new 991 in action, stock imagery and more.

Serving as both the first and last impression made on the attendees, Kevin Collins, owner of AAT, knew that the imagery had to blow viewers away. This was a difficult proposition, however, as the projected image would have to contend with a large amount of direct and ambient exterior lighting. Furthermore, the projector would need to be rugged enough to withstand an outdoor installation with little protection from the elements. Collins had worked previously with the TITAN line, and settled deploying a single TITAN Quad for the event, due to its brightness, image quality and rugged design.

According to Collins, “The content looked amazing. Fall and winter launches are our favorites, as it gets dark so early. As the sun began to set, attendees became more and more engaged by the content. At sun down, the imagery became a beacon to passersby and attendees alike, serving as the perfect complement to the gorgeous new 911 on display.”

Numerous inquiries from those in attendance hinted that there could be similar events to come, which couldn’t make Collins and his team any happier. “This sort of event is a perfect example as to why my firm only uses DPI projectors,” noted Collins. He continued, “They offer a diverse product line, and I know that regardless of the display that I choose, I will always get the best image quality possible.”

Sound Czech: HARMAN’s Soundcraft Si Compact 32 Digital Console Highlights Audio System at Czech Republic’s Jazz Tibet Club

OLOMOUC, Czech Republic – Located in an historic 15th century building in the city of Olomouc in the Czech Republic, the Jazz Tibet Club is a live music venue with an unusual name that hosts an unusual mix of performers. “By our name you would think we are strictly a jazz club, but we focus on non-commercial music and the range of artists and musical styles we present is extremely eclectic,” said Vladimir Foret, Program Director of the Jazz Tibet Club. Last December, Peter ?varc, sound engineer of the club, made the decision to upgrade the Jazz Tibet Club’s live sound facilities with the purchase of a HARMAN Soundcraft Si Compact 32 digital audio console.

“The Jazz Tibet Club was founded in 1994 by jazz fans and through the years we have diversified to become a unique and prestigious venue in the region,” Foret noted. “We’ve hosted artists including Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglová, Erik Truffaz, Victor Bailey, Darryl Jones, Maria Doyle Kennedy, David Kitt, Mark Geary, Astronautalis, Black Cracker and Grand Pianoramax, Shearwater, Taylor McFerrin, Liam Ó Maonlaí, Duke Special and many others.”

The Jazz Tibet Club has an intimate atmosphere that encourages close contact between the musicians and the audience. “We look for performers that have sincerity and energy,” Foret continued. “However, it was becoming apparent that our old digital console, a Yamaha 01V-which did us a great service through the years-was limiting the ability of the artists to express themselves at their best. The old console’s 16 inputs-only 12 of them with mic preamps-and four auxes could no longer accommodate our needs.”

When the club decided to upgrade, Foret and his team evaluated their options and found the Si Compact 32 to be the perfect fit. “The greatest thing about the console is how it combines the best from both the analog and the digital approach.” Foret said. “While some digital consoles require you to go through layers of menus, everything is easily accessible on the Si Compact 32. Working on this console is extremely intuitive and comfortable.”

“Really, there is nothing about the Si Compact 32 that can limit us, or any sound engineer,” Foret continued. “The console has an amazing number of inputs and busses that are sufficient for any application I can imagine, and all the inputs and busses are equipped with very high quality dynamic processors and equalization, which is an important ‘real-world’ feature. I also really like the fact that you get all this functionality in a really compact size that doesn’t take up much space in the club and only one person needs to carry it.”

With the new V2 software upgrade for Soundcraft’s Si Compact series, Foret is getting even more mileage out of the console. “We’re now running the latest V2 software, which gives us features like the ability to copy and paste channels and busses and set up assignable fader layers, and its vast amount of built-in digital signal processing,” he said.

There is nothing we could complain about,” Foret concluded. “The Si Compact 32 is fast, reliable and user-friendly. We love it!”
