Tri-C Metro Auditorium Jazzed With L-ACOUSTICS

The Jack DeJohnette Group soundchecks during the recent Tri-C JazzFest 2012 at Cuyahoga Community College's Tri-C Metro Auditorium

Cleveland’s popular JazzFest venue installs KARA, ARCS II and SB18 rig

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Known to Cleveland locals simply as “Tri-C”, Cuyahoga Community College is the oldest and largest community college in Ohio. But to jazz aficionados, the school is more than simply an institution dedicated to higher learning — it’s the host site of the renowned Tri-C JazzFest, which recently celebrated its 33rd anniversary.

One of Tri-C's new SB18/KARA arrays

One of the primary venues for the 10-day annual event is the 800-seat Tri-C Metro Auditorium, an intimate hall originally designed and built in 1971 for the Cleveland Philharmonic Orchestra. With minimal fixed PA in the room, the school would typically rent a sound reinforcement system for JazzFest each year — usually an L-ACOUSTICS dV-DOSC/ARCS package from Woodsy’s Music in Kent. But this year the college finally realized its goal of installing an L-ACOUSTICS system of its own. more

Texas Southern University Updates Control Room with Broadcast Pix Granite 5000 Video Control Center

Billerica, Massachusetts – Broadcast Pix™ today announced that Texas Southern University (TSU) School of Communication has added a Granite™ 5000 Video Control Center™ to its student control room. The new system is part of an equipment upgrade for the Houston-based school to support HD and SD video production.

The control room serves as part of the school’s production laboratory, where sophomores, juniors, and seniors work with external producers to create content. Students produce a variety of projects, from news programs to short films, and much of the content is distributed through Comcast Cable’s on-demand portal. “It’s an excellent platform for our students,” said Cliff Edwards, director of broadcast engineering, School of Communication.

Because projects are produced in both SD and HD, it was important that TSU invest in a video switcher that could handle both. “The ability to go HD or SD, that was the goal,” said Edwards. “I wanted something that was going to last and be state-of-the-art quality – and give students a leg up when they went into the real world.”

The Granite 5000 was purchased from and installed by Houston-based Industrial Audio Video last summer, and TSU began using it for classes last fall. It replaced an aging Echolab switcher and CG, and its built-in Fluent-View allowed the school to replace its cumbersome wall of CRT monitors with four Panasonic 42-inch flat panels. Edwards said students enjoy using the built-in Fluent Clip Store, which allows them to bypass time consuming, tape-based workflows. “Now, they can focus that time on putting packages together,” he added.

According to Edwards, the School of Communication needs to invest wisely when it purchases new equipment. With its Fluent™ workflow tools, regular software upgrades, and modular expandability, he said the 2 M/E Granite 5000 essentially sold itself. “I was sold on the product from day one,” Edwards added. “It’s a wonderful tool. We wow the students, we wow visitors, and when we generate content, we wow the viewers.”

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 compelling 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 systems 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.

Eastern Acoustic Works® Debuts Next-Generation SUB.two Subwoofer System

SUB.two to Offer New Subwoofer Technology Platform

Whitinsville, MA, USA, June 27, 2012 – EAW®, a world-renowned loudspeaker designer and manufacturer, recently introduced its new SUB.two at InfoComm 2012. SUB.two is the first subwoofer system in the all-new, next-generation Avalon by EAW line of dance club loudspeaker systems. SUB.two represents a completely new technology platform for the subwoofer genre in a generation: Hybrid Subwoofer Technology™. By combining a dual 12-inch bass horn-loaded with a single 21-inch direct radiating cone speaker, SUB.two produces crisp, powerful concursion at 80 Hz and deep, warm lows down to 20 Hz. The announcement was made by EAW President Jeff Rocha and further emphasizes ongoing innovations in sound reinforcement technology. SUB.two complements the already-released CLUB.two and CLUB.three three-way, main channel systems.

“Like every product in the Avalon by EAW line, SUB.two is a radical departure from existing systems, and will totally transform the discussion of what a subwoofer can be,” said Rocha.

In March, EAW debuted the CLUB.two and CLUB.three systems simultaneously at Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt, Germany and at Winter Music Conference in Miami, FL, USA. At Winter Music Conference, an Avalon by EAW system powered both the main dance floor and the DJ booth at the world-famous Delano Hotel pool parties. Performers included Luciano, Pete Tong, Miike Snow, Benny Benassi, Sultan + Ned Shepard and Groove Armada. The Delano Hotel’s week-long series of events also included the official record release party for Madonna’s new album, MDNA.

The Avalon by EAW line was co-designed by legendary dance club designer/owner John Lyons, whose Avalon Hollywood club is a favorite performance venue for world-class DJs. Lyons worked with EAW in the late 1990s to produce the original line of Avalon loudspeakers. The original Avalon line sold worldwide and came to represent the state-of-the-art in dance club sound. Lyons initiated the renewal of the line in 2011 and played an active role throughout.

According to the company, Lyons demands an extraordinarily high level of performance from loudspeaker systems, repeatedly asking for revisions and improvements. “Working with John Lyons takes us to a new level,” continued Rocha, “He’s never satisfied and always tries to take that next step. It puts our ingenuity to the test, but when we dig down for that ‘something extra’, it’s always there.”

BeatleShow! Vegas FOHE Gets By With a Little Help from a Yamaha PM5D

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Critics say BeatleShow! at the Saxe Theater in the Planet Hollywood Resort Casino is the closest you can get to a real Beatles concert. Producers of BeatleShow! spared no expense incorporating every meticulous detail from dramatic costume changes to sound and stage lighting, creating the most authentic Beatles experience today.

Sound choice for front of house mixing producer/engineer Mick McCoy, is a Yamaha PM5D digital mixing console. “I’ve been using the 5D since it came out,” states McCoy. “I was on the team that built Disney’s Hyperion Theater at Disneyland as the A1, and we were on the initial beta-test team for the PM1D. What an opportunity to get in on the ground floor of the whole Yamaha digital platform.”

As far as the Yamaha digital line, McCoy sights the two biggest features are recall-ability and reliability. “I’ve opened up for The Who at Carnegie Hall with an O1V96 that I brought on a plane in a suitcase. For 15 years, I have been all over the world producing BeatleShow! with Yamaha consoles, and they just don’t fail. It’s also nice to walk into a ballroom in Dubai and see your old friend the 5D sitting there when you’ve got a show to do in a few hours. Over the last ten years, the PM5D has probably been the most rider-friendly console on the market. In my Fabbey Road Studios in Orange County, I have a Yamaha DM2000.”

“The integration of Logic and a dedicated I-Mac show control is something I’ve worked on for about two years,” says McCoy. “Larry Hopkins, a musical and tech guru from Technicolor in LA, really showed me the possibilities for inexpensive automation. For BeatleShow! I use a Motu D/A to run multiple streams of audio, including a tempo map and cues to musicians, all getting stereo in-ear mixes from the PM5D, and stage monitors that are active terraced versions of the house mix—a very easy and cool 5D trick. In addition, a “tech track” or stage manager in a box connects to Clearcom to direct technicians on scenic moves and cues. MIDI output also controls scene changes on the Yamaha PM5D, and all the lighting cues that are generated in a Hog3 PC, as well as keyboard and guitar patches.

Both projection and the video walls are also driven from Logic through Canopus D/A converter boxes. After working with Yamaha engineers from Japan, it is exciting to see the Steinberg compatibility heading in this direction; it makes for an extremely automated and reliable “booked show”, something that my days with Disney taught me to value.”

Out of hundreds of cues for the show, there are only four scene changes on the Yamaha PM5D that need to be triggered manually, and this is done via a switchbox I built for just a few dollars to address the GPI port on the console. It enables me and other engineers to be out of the booth and “in the field” where our ears should be. A PC laptop with Yamaha Studio Manager running on it is wirelessly connected through an inexpensive router, so tweaking audio from the house is possible, including ancillary systems like front fills and monitors. For the price of a cheap laptop and router, an engineer can mix from anywhere in the room.” McCoy said he couldn’t imagine anyone not taking advantage of this inexpensive freedom. A keyboard Blue Toothing to the I-Mac completes mobility and provides a remote “GO” button for the Logic software.

“David Saxe who owns the theater has really given me the latitude to create a great mixing environment. I returned the favor by helping him to create Vegas, the show that follows BeatleShow! and includes about 100 of the best musicians, singers, and dancers in Las Vegas, all house-mixed on the Yamaha PM5D. And, get this, there is only a 10-minute turnaround between shows! Mind you, both of these shows are very “vintage” live shows, and the Yamaha digital format works wonderfully.”

Bexel Continues Equipment Upgrade and Expansion of HD Zoom Lens Inventory with Major Purchase from Canon

New Gear Addresses Customer Need for Long HD Image Stabilization

BURBANK, CA, JULY 2, 2012—Bexel, a unit of the Vitec Group’s Services Division and a leading worldwide provider of broadcast services and solutions, has added an array of Canon HD zoom lenses to its rental equipment inventory. The purchase comes as part of Bexel’s continuing upgrade and expansion of its long lens inventory in advance of major broadcast events up ahead this year. Included in the purchase were Canon’s DIGISUPER 86II xs, DIGISUPER 22 and XJ60 lenses.

The DIGISUPER 86II xs is a field lens that utilizes Canon’s POWER OPTICAL SYSTEM and X-Element technology and optical design concept. By adopting these, the DIGISUPER 86 xs realizes the necessary optical performance for HDTV, with a zoom ratio of 86x and improved wide angle of 9.3mm, while still maintaining a size equivalent to that of previous SDTV lenses. The Power Optical System achieves higher specifications and quality using the optical X-Element, which virtually eliminates aberrations.

“Canon has long been recognized as a leader in optical image stabilization technologies and the DIGISUPER 86II xs is a welcome addition to Bexel’s inventory,” says Tom Dickinson, chief technology officer, Bexel. “The DIGISUPER 86′s built-in optical image stabilizer eliminates even the slightest amount of wind or operator movement, providing incredible HD zoom pictures in the field. It will be used for many of our clients’ sports productions.”

As part of the Canon purchase, Bexel also added the DIGI SUPER 22 lens to its inventory. The DIGI SUPER 22 is a new innovation in HDTV studio lens design—one that introduces an important new choice in studio system configuration. It is intended for broadcasters and producers whose foremost priority is a high-performance but cost-effective and compact HDTV studio lens and camera package that can be supported on a modest-sized pedestal or sturdy tripod system. This low-weight combination is also ideal for robotic system applications.

Bexel has also added Canon’s XJ60x9BIE-D lens to its inventory as part of the purchase. It is intended to offer the industry a cost-effective lens that can optimally service many long focal length applications in the field, large studios and special venues. This lens embodies the pinnacle in dynamic image creation for live television production for both HDTV and SDTV. It is intended for mobile truck operators and broadcasters seeking good telephoto flexibility for high-definition sports and entertainment event coverage while operating within constricted production budgets.

“We have had a great working relationship with Bexel for many years,” says Thomas Bender, director, national sales accounts, Canon. “Our lenses have become the industry standard for production trucks and various other applications, with many broadcasters coming to rely on them for critical operations. Bexel is very responsive to this need, always ensuring its customers have access to the gear they require.”

Bexel has also purchased peripheral equipment from Canon, including servo modules and lens supporters.

Swissotel Chicago Installs ELAN g! System In Common Areas To Provide Superior Guest Experience

The Swiss are well known for their appreciation of precision technology, in which they emphasize ease of use, practical capabilities and aesthetic form. That’s why for the owners of the Swissôtel Chicago, the ELAN g! Entertainment and Control System was the natural choice for giving hotel staff and guests total control of the impressive audio and video systems in the hotel’s lobby, bar, main office, reception area and media lounge, as well as five ballrooms and five meeting rooms. The ELAN g! System’s elegantly simple control interface offers guests unparalleled simplicity for making business presentations and enjoying leisure events.

According to Gary Trucinksi, President of AVLET, the professional integration company that installed the ELAN system, “Management told us they needed a system that could be used by both staff and guests, so it was immediately clear that the ELAN g! System was the best choice. Most other systems require hours of training and a high level of technical expertise, but the hotel staff couldn’t believe how easy the ELAN g! system was to use, and everything it could do.

“Now they are controlling the music and video displays throughout all the hotel’s common areas with iPads, while guests can use the system themselves in the media lounge, ballrooms and meeting rooms for business or leisure. Guests can literally walk into the media lounge, tap the iPad and start controlling the audio and video. It’s that intuitive.”

AVLET installed permanent in-wall ELAN touchscreens in the office and bar so the managers always have full control over the system. For guests in the ballrooms, meeting rooms and staff in the lobby and reception area, several iPads running the ELAN g!Mobile app provide mobile control over the rooms’ audio and video, and can easily be used as a remote control for business presentations.

There are more than 100 in-ceiling speakers located throughout these common areas, along with a 60” TV at the bar and two 60” TVs in the media lounge, giving guests a fun place to converse with friend and colleagues before they even get to their hotel room. The meeting rooms and media lounge also feature HDMI input wall plates for simple connection of laptops and other video sources for presentations or movies.

“Swissôtel Chicago has its own A/V company that runs day-to-day operations, and now they can log in to the ELAN g! System remotely from their couches at home to help if an issue arises,” Trucinski said. “That’s one of the best things about the g! System, it’s so easy for installers and A/V pros to troubleshoot because the programming is simple in the first place. Another great thing for the hotel is that because they were expecting prices more in line with a Crestron system, and ELAN g! is much more affordable, the project came in way under budget!”

The ELAN g! Entertainment and Control System provides users with the most uniform and intuitive icon-based control from their favorite devices including TVs, touchscreens, touchpads, PCs, iPhones and iPads. The standardized interface works across platforms, so that the trendy g!Mobile app users love on the iPhone appears and works similarly on ELAN touchscreens, valets and handheld remotes as well as users’ televisions and mobile devices. And the system’s IP backbone makes it just as easy to control the system from across the room – or across the globe.

Individual “apps” for each subsystem allow the user to control security, climate, lighting, media, irrigation, pool/spa, messaging, video and photos with the flick of a finger. Access is fast and secure through any ELAN home interface or globally with mobile Internet enabled devices like the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Netbooks and PC Tablets. Since the intuitive interface empowers users with personalized scheduling and detailed history views, high consumption subsystems like lighting and climate can be closely monitored and managed for a greener lifestyle – and substantial energy savings.

Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts is a distinctive group of deluxe hotels for today’s discerning modern business and leisure travellers, combining the renowned Swiss touch with a fresh, modern and contemporary design.

Each Swissôtel offers personalised service with charm and efficiency. Located in main gateway destinations and city centres, Swissôtel hotels have convenient access to business and shopping districts, and local attractions.
