EAW® Offers KF740 Zero Degree Adapter Accessory

“Flat-Front” rigging increases KF740 Array size, output and throw distance

Prolight + Sound, Frankfurt, Germany, March 21, 2012 – EAW® (Halle 8.0, Stand F21) today announced the release of the KF740 zero degree adapter accessory. The adapter accessory permits EAW KF740 line array modules to hang with zero degrees of splay between adjacent modules, increasing the output and throw distance of those arrays. In addition, the adapter accessory’s design increases the total load-bearing capability of the upper modules, significantly increasing the size of arrays that can be safely hung. EAW President Jeff Rocha made the announcement.

“We developed this adapter because our customers specifically asked for it,” Rocha said. “Once the KF740 was in the field and our customers started to push the system, they discovered that it’s truly extraordinary in terms of performance. They felt that the KF740 could work in larger venues if they could build arrays with a long hang of flat-fronted modules at the top. As usual, our customers were right.”

The new adapter accessory allows the creation of an array with up to 24 flat-fronted modules at a safety factor of 10:1. While it is unlikely that a real-world application would call for an array that includes 24 flat-fronted modules with no down fill elements, such an array would offer up to 500 feet (152.4 meters) of throw, generating over 105 dB at that distance. Much larger arrays are possible at a 5:1 safety factor.

The new zero degree KF740 adapter accessory is made from 7075-T6 and 6061-T6 aluminum and can carry well over 100,000 lbs (45,000 kg). Each adapter can carry 1,200 lbs. (544 kg) at a safety factor of 10:1. Adapters attach to the loudspeakers with custom-designed, 17-4 PH H900 stainless steel shank, quick release pins tethered to the accessory with wire lanyards.

Load-bearing requirements change with the specific configuration of a given array. Users should always generate array designs using EAW Resolution™ array design and modeling software. In addition to predicting array performance, Resolution manages safety rating data up to a safety rating of 10:1. This includes loads and failure points for the array and fly bar.

EAW® Launches Powercube™ Power and Processing Modules

Powercubes™ are optimized for use with EAW® Line Array Systems, and customers who purchase are eligible for EAW‘s Red Certification® Training Program

Prolight + Sound, Frankfurt, Germany, March 21, 2012 –EAW® (Halle 2.0, Stand F21) today announced the release of their Powercube™ amplifier racks. Designed to maximize the capabilities of EAW’s Line Arrays, each Powercube amplifier rack includes electrical power distribution, 12 channels of amplifier power with integrated digital signal processing and 12-channel input and output.

Powercubes support either three Lab.gruppen® PLM20000Q/SP amplifiers or six Powersoft® K10 DSP+AESOP amplifiers. Amplifiers are shipped separately from the respective manufacturers for user installation on delivery. Powercubes come in 115 volt and 230 volt options, making four options in total. Electrical power distribution panels are separately configured for each of the four possible options.

Powercubes are optimized for use with EAW KF740 line array systems and the largest of the EAW subwoofer systems, but Powercubes can also power and control KF760 or KF730 line array systems.

Also, Powercube purchases entitle the customer to sign up for EAW’s Red Certification® training program. Red Certification status is awarded after a two-day training seminar led by EAW’s Technical Training Manager Bernie Broderick and held at the customer’s offices. Red Certification ensures that all Powercube owners and their staffs are fully trained on all aspects of using the power and processing available through the Powercube.

“With Powercubes and Red Certification, EAW KF740 owners can assure their customers of absolutely consistent performance night after night, in venue after venue,” EAW President Jeff Rocha said. “With a network of Red Certified KF740 rental companies, owners that cross rent and tours that contract PA vendors in different cities or different countries can get this same level of consistency anywhere on the planet.”

Powercubes feature a 24U rack in a shock-absorbing cage to house the power distribution, amplifiers and input and output panels. Electrical power distribution panels include standard, three-phase input connectors and circuit breaker protected outputs configured to support each amplifier compliment.

The ingenious input panels allow for maximum flexibility without switching the connectors. The input panels provide analog connections with loop through, AES connections with parallel loop through and dual Ethernet ports for loop through the amplifier’s digital network. Selectable ground lifts located on each analog input allow it to be linked to the next successive input in series, allowing a single input to drive multiple channels of a multi-amp system.

Likewise, Powercube output panels feature both Neutrik® NL4 connectors and NL8 connectors that combine amplifier outputs. This allows for Powercube to drive KF760s, KF740s or KF730s without ever rewiring the amp rack.

Powercubes include amenities that make them easy to work with under difficult conditions. All models feature a Littlite® gooseneck lamp on the back of each rack for easy patching and configuration in dark areas. They include easily accessible courtesy power outlets appropriate to their voltage to power personal electronics or charge wireless devices. Finally, all models except the Powersoft 230V version include a locking storage drawer.

EAW® Launches Red Certification™ Training

Two-day seminar on Powercube™ power and processing module yields maximum results

Prolight + Sound, Frankfurt, Germany, March 21, 2012 – EAW® (Halle 8.0, Stand F21) today announced the launch of their Red Certification™ training program in support of their Powercube™ power and processing modules. EAW will award the Red Certification status after completion of a two-day seminar conducted at the customer’s location. EAW President Jeff Rocha made the announcement.

“Powercubes deliver tremendous capabilities to owners of EAW mobile production line array systems,” Rocha said. “Red Certification ensures that Powercube owners get the most out of these exciting, new products.”

The Red Certification training seminar was designed by EAW Technical Training Manager Bernie Broderick, a long time mobile production and concert touring veteran as well as an experienced instructor. Broderick will deliver the training seminars in North America and will work with EAW’s world-wide Application Support Group members to deliver the seminars globally.

“EAW’s line array technology is far too advanced for users to just hang a bunch of modules and hope they sound good,” Broderick said. “After completing the Red Certification training, EAW line array owners will fully understand the suite of tools that EAW provides, and they’ll know how these tools work together to deliver consistent results from venue to venue.”

The Red Certification training seminar consists of several sections, including:
• Point source physics
• Array design fundamentals
• Line array physics
• EAW Resolution™ array design and modeling software
• EAW Greybox™ settings
• Hands-on array rigging

According to Broderick, the training seminars build toward a complete understanding of EAW’s sophisticated approach to line array design, control and execution. By carefully integrating modeling software, rigging hardware and digital signal processing, users can build arrays for a range of venues and enjoy consistent results from various designs.

“Once users understand that the ‘basics’ of line array physics are incredibly complicated,” Broderick said, “they’ll appreciate the crucial role that EAW Resolution plays in designing arrays for a given venue. As soon as they start to rely on Resolution, they’ll understand why Greybox settings are the best way to get the performance they need. If they can build the array with the correct angles between the modules and apply the correct Greybox settings, they should get the results that Resolution predicts. It’s just that simple.”

Prism Sound and TTid To Host Audio Test & Measurement Seminar

Following on from last year’s hugely successful audio test and measurement training seminar at Duxford in Cambridgeshire, and due to popular demand for a re-run, Prism Sound is holding a second training event in the North of England with the aim of introducing engineers to the practical and theoretical aspects of accurately measuring audio for a wide variety of applications.

This ‘must attend’ seminar will be held in conjunction with Prism Sound’s UK partners TTid, and will take place at the University of Huddersfield from 30th – 31st May, 2012.

Simon Woollard, Applications Engineer for Prism Sound, says: “Our first training event at Duxford in 2011 was sold out, and attended by over 60 engineers from many different sectors of the audio industry. Audio engineering is now a highly diverse discipline, with engineers working on designing, installing, servicing and manufacturing a huge range of electronic and electroacoustic devices. For this reason it is very important that we organise training days such as this, to ensure that we can keep every corner of the audio industry up-to-date with the latest in test and measurement techniques. Engineers are facing increasing pressure on their time budgets, so anything that we can do to help disseminate information on improving the efficiency and scope of their audio testing is gratefully received, as evidenced by our very popular on-going program of webinars and seminars in this field.”

The first day will be devoted to covering the basics of audio measurement and will include sessions on objective and subjective measurement correlation; audio measurement units, single-tone audio measurements; FFT’s; Sweeps and Digital Audio. There will be a general introduction session to get the day started and a Q&A wrap up so that those taking part can have their specific queries dealt with.

The second day will focus on practical measurement workshops where delegates will have the opportunity to apply the theory they have covered in day one. There will be plenty of opportunity to test ADCs, DACs and digital interfaces along with power amplifiers, loudspeakers, soundcards, Mic pres, Bluetooth and playback-only devices. Once again there will be a wrap-up Q&A session to ensure that all delegates have understood the workshops and the results they have been achieving.

Throughout the two day seminar, delegates will have access to Prism Sound’s audio test and measurement instruments including the revolutionary dScope Series III instrument, which includes precision analogue and highly-optimised digital outputs and inputs. dScope series III’s precise and automatic gain-ranging allows high resolution measurements over a massive range, from a few micro-volts to more than 150 volts RMS, and from less than 1 Hz to over 90kHz. Its interface processor uses dedicated DSP to provide a wide range of real time measurements, while its software uses the host PC for almost unlimited number crunching and analysis options such as Fast Fourier Transforms, unique ‘FFT Detectors’, swept sine and multi-tone testing. Designed to be highly programmable, the dScope Series III can be automated from a wide range of third-party software using Active X controls, or internally using VBScript.

As places are limited, anyone wanting to part should register their interest by visiting www.prismsound.com/test_measure/event_reg.php?eid=138 Delegates are encouraged to suggest topics they would like to see covered on the second day – all suggestions are welcomed. The price for this event is £45 per day, plus VAT. Limited places are also available, free of charge, for students enrolled on audio engineering programmes.

Xantech Tees Up Total Control For The New Golf Play Cafe’ Experience

When the new Golf Play Café asks patrons to “swing on over,” they mean that literally. The restaurant/bar that opened this year in Rochester, New York features over 50 world-renowned golf courses on its four state-of-the-art PGA TOUR® simulators. Players/diners can hit into the four simulators’ 20 x 20-foot screens and watch their friends do so on a dozen LG 60- and 42-inch LCD monitors throughout the bar and restaurant, linked by 12 Xantech IPRS232 XtraLink IP™ controller/switchers that enable transmission of RS232, RS422, or RS485 serial commands over an existing IP network to a specific IP address, and all controlled by a Xantech WIC1200 Web Intelligent Controller. This all-Xantech control system was installed and integrated by Muzak/Functional Communications, with offices in Rochester, Syracuse, Utica and Albany, New York.

Muzak/Functional Communications installed a total of 16 video displays in Golf Play Café to complement the restaurant’s four golf simulators, which allow short-formatted play of nine holes on one of the 50 best courses in the world stored in the PGA TOUR system’s memory and projected onto the four large screens. To create a seamless and consistent experience throughout the facility, Muzak/Functional Communications installed the system comprising Xantech IPRS232s and WIC1200 Web Intelligent Controller.

“Those LCDs are tied into the head-end equipment rack that’s controlled by the WIC1200,” explains Dru Biehler, Service Manager at Muzak/Functional Communications. The firm’s technicians then integrated eight Dell tablet computers with the WIC1200, allowing patrons to choose their own channels from anywhere in the restaurant or bar, to watch sports on popular channels such as DISH Network or to tune into the virtual courses that golfers are playing on and watch them. “The entire system is running over Cat-6 cabling with an HD video signal extended to all the displays, and the WIC1200 is the brains of the entire operation,” says Biehler. “The Xantech WIC1200 is the only piece of equipment that can do all of this, including interfacing with the Dell tablets, at a cost-effective price point. And Xantech’s technical service is amazing – you call and you get help right away. That means the world when you’re working on a project like this one, where we had a tight deadline.” In fact, says Biehler, Muzak/Functional Communications’ winning bid for the project was based in part on its ability to get the work down in the shortest time frame. “And Xantech’s ease of use and reliability helped us meet that requirement,” he says.

Xantech’s Web Intelligent Controller WIC1200 is a stand-alone room controller for Networked/Web-based control featuring 2 IR Ports, 2 Serial Ports, 2 Contact Closure ports, and 2 Digital i/o ports as well as 2 Ethernet ports (one with Power over Ethernet [POE]) for TCP/IP telnet control with less intrusion into facility IP networks. On its own, the Web Intelligent Controller is an Event-driven component with two RS232 ports (configurable for RS422 and RS232) and a single IP port. The Event Manager is capable of Timed Events, Calendar Events, Telnet and Serial Events as well a full FTP site, Web Server and Email Server.

“We have access to the WIC1200 via the Golf Play Café’s SSLVPN,” added Biehler. “By browsing through the URL it will prompt you for your username and password. Then we have complete control over the WIC programming and the web control page from our office. That is only one of the many great features of Xantech. We also love the service and support.”

The IPRS232 XtraLink IP enables the transmission of RS232, RS422, or RS485 serial commands over an existing IP network to a specific IP address now with Power over Ethernet (POE) for streamlined installation. By allowing the use of an existing wired or wireless IP network, it offers new opportunities in installation and system flexibility, particularly in retrofitting older buildings, where new wire runs may not be practical.

Televisa San Ángel Standardizes on HARMAN Studer OnAir 3000 Consoles

SAN ÁNGEL, Mexico – In an upgrade that dramatically improves the workflow and quality of its audio system, Televisa in Mexico recently purchased eight HARMAN Studer OnAir 3000 consoles for use in its San Ángel facility. Televisa is the largest media conglomerate in Latin America and in the Spanish-speaking world.

Televisa San Ángel is Televisa’s center of production for “telenovelas,” soap operas, game shows and reality television, and handles the majority of post-production work for Televisa. San Ángel also contains the Televisa Center of Artistic Education, whose students form more than 85 percent of Televisa’s production staff.

Each of the 18-fader models at Televista San Ángel is being used in separate studios to mix audio for a variety of programming. “We needed special configurations on the consoles because the studios are handling multiple programs,” said Rafael Alfaro Bugarini of Televisa.

“We wanted consistency throughout the facility, which is why we decided to have the same model console in eight different rooms,” Alfaro added. “We also wanted to grow in terms of sound quality, which is why we chose the OnAir 3000 in particular.”

The Studer OnAir 3000′s range of compact and elegant control surface modules incorporates the same patented “Touch’n’Action” philosophy on color GUI screens. The console has three main stereo mix buses plus an audition facility, four stereo AUX buses, 16 mix-minus sends configurable as AUXes, and three independent studio monitoring circuits and offers full dynamics, EQ and input/output routing in each channel.

“With the OnAir 3000 console, we are able to have more capability with each fader,” Alfaro noted. “This means we can do so much more with less consoles. And the consoles aren’t as big, but they offer more features than other models.”

HARMAN (www.harman.com) designs, manufactures and markets a wide range of audio and infotainment solutions for the automotive, consumer and professional markets – supported by 15 leading brands, including AKG, Harman Kardon, Infinity, JBL, Lexicon and Mark Levinson. The Company is admired by audiophiles across multiple generations and supports leading professional entertainers and the venues where they perform. More than 25 million automobiles on the road today are equipped with HARMAN audio and infotainment systems. HARMAN has a workforce of about 13,000 people across the Americas, Europe and Asia, and reported net sales of $4.2 billion for twelve months ending December 31, 2011.
