MediaCom and DAT Provide Full HARMAN Upgrade To Luxury Radisson BLU Hotel In Tunisia

NORTHRIDGE, California – The five-star Radisson BLU Hotel, located in Tunisia, recently completed a full upgrade of their audio system to coincide with a comprehensive renovation. Local HARMAN distributor MediaCom SA designed a system including JBL, Crown, and BSS Audio components with the installation handled by local contractor, DAT. Situated on the resort island of Djerba, the luxury hotel’s upgrades include new bars, restaurants, conference rooms and a spa.

For sound reinforcement MediaCom SA chose JBL Control 24CT loudspeakers, the Control 19CS 8″ ceiling bass driver, as well as Control 25AV surface-mount speakers. Four of the conference rooms were equipped with the JBL Control 200 series, favoring the ultra-wide ceiling speaker coverage from the 6.5″ coaxial drivers. Control 226C’s, with integrated back can, were featured in the hotel’s conference room. Control 227C’s were deployed in the remaining rooms. The lobby, spa, and pool areas also utilized the Control 226C’s.

The JBL speakers were assigned to a combination of six Crown CTs 8200A and two Crown CTs 4200A amplifiers. This system was networked with HARMAN HiQnet System Architect(tm), which allowed the amplifiers to deliver comprehensive monitoring and control functionality along with digital audio transport. Additionally, all signal processing in the new areas of the hotel is handled by BSS Audio Soundweb London devices.

Commenting on the system MediaCom chairman, Ridha Ourzli stated, “This audio solution provides great ease of use for the technical staff, the hotel’s technical engineer can receive full system feedback and diagnostics on the networked audio system from his computer.”

Ourzli added that since DAT are regular customers of HARMAN brands, their familiarity with the systems made the integration straightforward. “The client is delighted, and extremely satisfied with the solution we have provided.”

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.

StrandVision Announces Linux Digital Signage Player Optimized for Self-contained Playback – Enhanced Reliability

MENOMONIE, Wis. – April 24, 2012 – StrandVision Digital Signage today announced that it is offering a pre-configured Linux digital signage player appliance that ideally supports playback of digital signage content. The graphics-optimized unit is able to operate independently while automatically receiving content updates over the Internet.

The Intel dual-core processor SUSE Linux digital signage player, which includes 1GB of memory and Nvidia GeForce HD Graphics, as well as networking and VGA and HDMI display ports, is pre-configured by StrandVision for optimal performance and stability for years of service.

“The Linux Digital Signage Player is the best option for StrandVision customers,” said Mike Strand StrandVision founder and CEO. “We take care of the software installation/configuration and closely integrate the unit allowing our cloud services to manage the appliances so customers don’t have to worry about the initial configuration, ongoing maintenance, operating system versions or security. The small size and optional mounting bracket allows the unit to be hidden behind the display for an uncluttered installation.”

The StrandVision Linux Player includes a subset of the full digital signage playback software application that runs on StrandVision’s servers in the cloud. The Player includes its own database and Apache Web server so everything is self contained. The included Adobe Flash player only has to connect to itself for digital signage content (no network traffic) with StrandVision’s production servers in the cloud acting as backup and sending changes to content as needed.

The Linux digital signage appliance uses patented technology to poll the server cloud every minute to receive updates to digital signage content and send status and usage activity information. If the cloud cannot be reached the Linux appliance continues to play the full content loop and handles random and scheduled content properly. As a result, periodic breaks in Internet service of even up to a few hours are seldom noticeable. If the StrandVision cloud servers detect that a Linux appliance has stopped communicating with the server cloud for an hour, the system automatically sends an email alert to the customer’s technical contacts that are assigned to that particular location.

An additional benefit is that StrandVision’s cloud servers also have a lot more capability to solve issues automatically with the Linux players since the hardware and entire operating system is consistent and customized to operate within StrandVision’s cloud. The configuration also offers enhanced security and stability.

The Linux Player is offered in addition to standard downloadable StrandVision Digital Signage applications for Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac personal computers. The StrandVision Digital Signage Linux Player is available directly from StrandVision or through authorized StrandVision resellers and system integrators. It is priced at $799.99. Additional information on StrandVision Digital Signage Linux Players is available at: http://www.strandvision.com/linux_digital_signage_player_pc.html.

Berlin’s Event Cinema Adds World-Class Audio System With HARMAN’s JBL ScreenArray(r) Cinema Loudspeakers

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – The Event Cinema in Berlin’s Sony Center at Potsdamer Platz recently upgraded its sound system with HARMAN’s JBL 5742 ScreenArray(r) 4-way cinema loudspeakers, effectively raising its standards for audio quality. The Event Cinema at the Sony Center is the flagship cinema of the Cinestar chain, which has more than 500 screens in Europe.

In addition, the JBL 5742 ScreenArray cinema loudspeaker features a 4-inch titanium high-frequency compression driver operating in conjunction with a patented Optimized Aperture waveguide for uniform frequency response over a large area. The 5742 has a quad midrange array of four 8-inch Differential Drive(r) cone midrange drivers and the low-frequency section features two 18-inch woofers. It also has a shallow profile to accommodate minimum behind the screen depth requirements, and a Flat Front Waveguide design for easy baffle wall installation.

A total of 16 Crown I-Tech 5000 HD amplifiers power the system with a total capacity of 80 kW, of which two are for each front-end system (four amplifier channels), six SRX725F (one amplifier channel per speaker) and four for the sub-bass (one channel per sub-bass).

Leading Façade Engineering And Design Firm Turns To NanoLumens For High Impact Trade Show Display

High impact customer engagement is set to rise to a whole new level of brilliance at next month’s American Institute of Architect’s annual conference in Washington, DC, when the leading façade engineering and design consulting firm Axis Façades International unveils a specially designed LED video wall as part of its trade show exhibit. According to Josh Byrd, Director of Marketing at NanoLumens®, the pioneering Norcross, Georgia based developer of the world’s first and only flexible LED displays, is creating a 9’ x 9’ 4.5mm pixel pitch seamless video wall that Axis Façades will use to showcase its portfolio of work to trade show attendees.

“This is exactly the kind of high impact, customer engaging environment that NanoLumens displays were designed to stand out in,” Byrd explained today. “We are very proud to be partnering with Axis Façades to showcase their award-winning projects.”

According to Byrd, the massive display will weigh only 383 pounds and is less than three-inches thick. What’s more, the display will feature easily adjustable brightness levels and a 960 Hz refresh rate that results in superior image quality, even on camera, while emitting virtually no heat or noise.

“By utilizing the NanoLumens display in their booth, Axis Façades will be able to show off, in brilliant fashion, projects in the US and around the world for the attendees of this year’s AIA show. Show attendees will be able to see with great clarity the unique features and materials of the projects,” he emphasized. Byrd also noted that the host location for the show, the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, is already home to a NanoFlex™ and NanoSlim™ display!

“Embracing the NanoLumens technology allows us to capture the imaginations of the highly visual professionals attending this year’s AIA show,” stated Greg Romine, Managing Director Axis Façades International.

Axis Façades is a global facade design and façade engineering consultant that focuses on embracing inventive materials and technologies. The company is often referred to as a curtain wall consultant when the focus of the project is an exterior building envelope that is not load bearing. Axis provides expert façade design and curtain wall engineering for architects, owners, and developers, and the firm’s expertise supports projects including modern facades, historic façade preservation and façade renovations. Their practice includes Axis Façade USA, Axis Façade Consulting India, Axis Façade Consulting Turkey, Axis Façade Consulting Thailand, Axis Façade Consulting China and Axis Façade Consulting Korea, all of which comprise Axis Façades International. Their website, www.facades.com, is one of the leading reference sites for architects considering inventive façade elements.

NanoLumens displays are extremely slim, ultra-lightweight, energy efficient, and feature a seamless, edge-to-edge picture quality (up to a brightness of 5,000 nits) that can be viewed from any angle or any distance without color shift or picture drop-off. Designed and engineered with the environment in mind, NanoLumens displays consume significantly less energy per-square foot than conventional digital displays. Further emphasizing their commitment to eco-friendly technology, the NanoLumens displays are composed of up to 50% reclaimed materials, and are completely recyclable. What’s more, some new NanoLumens displays can be serviced from the front, making maintenance easier than ever before possible.

Designed and assembled entirely in the United States, NanoLumens displays are available in both flexible and fixed frames in five product lines: NanoFlex™, NanoFlex Wrap, and NanoFlex Ribbon flexible displays; NanoSlim™ fixed rectangular displays; and NanoShape™ fixed round, square, and triangular displays.

The company’s technology has been recognized by Entrepreneur magazine as a 2011 future-proof tech trend and was cited by The Wall Street Journal in its 2010 Technology Innovations Awards. NanoLumens’ technology also received the 2011 Breakthrough Technology of the Year Award at the American Technology Awards. Digital Signage Magazine awarded the NanoLumens NanoFlex a 2011 DIGI Award for “Best New Display Device – Non-LCD or Plasma”.

Santa Monica’s Lotus Post Positions Itself for Success With HARMAN’s JBL ScreenArray(r) Loudspeakers and LSR Series Studio Monitors

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – Located in the heart of Santa Monica, California, Lotus Post offers a broad range of audio services for movies, TV and music recording. In its new 6,000-square-foot facility with six post-production studios and another in the works, Lotus Post relies on HARMAN’s JBL ScreenArray(r) cinema loudspeakers and LSR Series studio monitors for film projects including Outrun, The Fighter, Thor, plus TV projects for Fox, Discovery Channel and Speed TV.

“Our mission is to be the best independent audio post facility in Los Angeles and offer an environment that fosters quality and creativity,” said Michael Perricone, CEO of Lotus Post. “We handle a variety of projects from feature films to promos to surround music mixing, with budgets ranging from $10,000 to $10 million.”

JBL ScreenArray loudspeakers are created to provide extended frequency response, wide dynamic range and smooth, even coverage to every seat in a theater. JBL’s LSR Series studio monitors provide high-resolution near field monitoring and feature technology that ensures accuracy at the mix position in any room. The use of JBL studio monitors in conjunction with JBL ScreenArray gives Lotus Post room-to-room consistency for mixes that consistently translate perfectly to theaters and homes.

“Every room at Lotus Post is designed to take advantage of today’s audio technology to the maximum,” Perricone noted. “We have to have sound we can believe in. The quality of our mixes can only be as good as the quality of what we’re hearing-that’s why it’s crucial for us to have speakers that don’t cut corners sonically.”

“With our JBLs, I can believe what I’m hearing-there’s no coloration, nothing to make the sound more ‘exciting’ than it really is,” Perricone added. “JBL ScreenArray loudspeakers are used in movie theaters all over the world, and what we hear in Stage One is what we know people are going to hear when they go to the movies.”

“A friend of mine had a pair of JBL LSR studio monitors and I heard them a few years ago and liked them very much,” Perricone added. “When we started Lotus Post at our original space in 2009, we took over a facility that already had JBL ScreenArray loudspeakers in two of the rooms. After working with these speakers and getting such consistently good results, we decided to equip every room with JBL systems when we moved Lotus Post to our new facility in Santa Monica.”

“The great thing about the LSR Series monitors,” Perricone concluded, “is that they do the same thing-the same quality of sound we hear in our post-production rooms translates to the big theaters. Also, thanks to their RMC Room Mode Correction, I can go from room to room in our facility and know that I’m going to hear absolutely consistent sound, with no surprises.”

Lotus Post has outfitted six of its rooms-Stages One through Six-with a range of models from the LSR6300 Series studio monitor line, plus JBL ScreenArray and cinema surround speakers in Stage One (Lotus Post’s “Big Room”) and cinema surround speakers in Stage Two.
