Bose® Offers New Accessories for ControlSpace® and PowerMatch™ Systems

New ControlSpace® SP-24 Sound Processor Offers Simplified Sound Processing for 2×4 Installed and Portable Applications

PowerMatch™ CobraNet® Card provides enhanced capability for Bose PowerMatch configurable professional power amplifiers

Framingham, Massachusetts, July 12, 2012 – The Bose® Professional Systems Division is offering new components for two of its flagship systems: the ControlSpace® SP-24 sound processor and a new CobraNet® compatible interface card for its PowerMatch™ amplifier line.

ControlSpace SP-24 sound processor
The ControlSpace SP-24 sound processor is a 2×4 loudspeaker processor for both installed and portable applications. It offers a different approach to configuration through two methods of control: a simplified front panel interface and a comprehensive PC software editor application.

“Customers have told us loudspeaker processors can be difficult and time consuming to set up. Bose wanted to address this with the SP-24 processor,” said Kyle Sullivan, electronics product manager, Bose Professional Systems Division. “We chose to keep the front panel very straightforward and provide users with access to the most common functions. And, for more complex applications, the SP-24 Editor software enables full access to all signal processing settings and routing. Both solutions make it possible for installers to optimize and control loudspeaker systems quickly and easily according to their installation needs.”

The ControlSpace SP-24 processor’s front panel features LCD menus and controls that allow for selection of pre-programmed scenes, gain and delay parameters, or quick access to Bose loudspeaker presets. There are also signal and clip LED indicators for input channels and a convenient front panel lockout feature that prevents unauthorized use.

The included ControlSpace SP-24 Editor software provides real-time control and monitoring, whether connected live or offline. Users can set gain/delay operations, custom channel routing, input and output 9-band equalization, band pass filters, delays, peak limiter, gain and polarity control. Custom loudspeaker EQ curves can be created or Bose professional loudspeaker EQs recalled for quick, optimized set-up. Custom scenes designed with the SP-24 Editor software can also be saved locally to a PC or, using a USB connection, stored to the SP-24 processor hardware.

The SP-24 includes standard XLR connectors for easy connection to pro-level sources such as mixing consoles, amplifiers, and powered loudspeakers. A USB port provides plug-and-play PC access for system configuration, programming, signal level monitoring and firmware updates using the SP-24 Editor software. With the 2×4 configuration, the Bose sound processor is a convenient option for both installed and portable applications.

The ControlSpace SP-24 sound processor will be available from Bose through authorized Bose dealers in July 2012 and is covered by a five-year transferable, limited warranty. The ControlSpace SP-24 Editor software will be available to download online at the same time.

CobraNet compatible interface card
Adding to the capability already enabled in ControlSpace ESP-00/88 engineered sound processors, Bose now offers a complete CobraNet network solution with its flagship DSP and amplifier products. The new CobraNet card easily inserts into the digital input card slot of the PowerMatch configurable professional power amplifier, enabling connection of up to 16 channels of uncompressed 48 kHz digital audio on the CobraNet network. The new PowerMatch CobraNet card enables configurable routing/mixing of CobraNet channels to amplifier channels, with 8 digital audio input channels as well as a diagnostic 8-channel audio monitoring bus and dual redundant network connections. The PowerMatch expansion card joins the ControlSpace ESP expansion card to give customers control and amplification solutions for CobraNet network applications. The PowerMatch CobraNet card will be available from Bose through authorized Bose dealers in June 2012 and is covered by a 5-year transferable, limited warranty.

ASHLY’S VERSATILE TM-360 AMP/MIXER CHOSEN FOR NATIONAL CZECH & SLOVAK MUSEUM & LIBRARY

czeck_slovak-museum.JPGCEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA – JULY 2012: Established in 1974 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library (NCSML) quickly became a focus of cultural life in east-central Iowa and a tourist destination for travelers both national and international. A series of expansion projects led to a new building dedicated in 1995 by then-US president Bill Clinton, Czech Republic president Václav Havel, and Slovakia president Michal Kovác. A devastating flood in 2008 damaged over $8 million of museum and library collections and caused insurers to balk at the idea of covering the museum for fear the Cedar River would flood again. In an epic, but ultimately cost-effective solution, the NCSML moved its building to higher ground and simultaneously expanded to over 50,000 square feet. The NCSML recently reopened with an inviting gift shop designed to send visitors home with items that more

The RapcoHorizon Company Rips Up the Stage and Raffles Off an i-JAM at Warped Tour 2012

Phoenix-Based blessthefall Rocks with RapcoHorizon Microphone, Instrument and Patch Cables, in addition to the i-JAM 3-n-1 Smartphone Interface

ST. LOUIS, MO, JULY 12, 2012 ― The RapcoHorizon Company (Summer NAMM 2012, Booth 411), a leading manufacturer of audio/video interfacing and cable equipment, is jamming with blessthefall on the Monster Energy Stage at Warped Tour 2012. With five shows per week at tour stops throughout the United States and Canada, from June 16 to August 5, the Phoenix-based band is putting the RapcoHorizon microphone, instrument and patch cables to the extreme touring test. Additionally, Eric Lambert, the band’s stage-right guitarist, relies on the company’s i-JAM 3-n-1 Smartphone Interface during every performance. The band, one of the RapcoHorizon endorsed artists, also raffled off one i-JAM at the St. Louis tour stop. Blessthefall fan, Clint Bowman, went home a winner.

Similar to the company’s i-BLOX, the i-JAM 3-n-1 serves as an audio interface that connects an instrument to iPhone applications. During warm ups, Lambert utilizes the unit’s built-in amplifier to render the amplification of his guitar without additional equipment. Whenever applicable, he can also use the unit to create recordings of his performances. “I love how convenient the i-JAM is,” says Lambert. “I can keep it in my rack and pull it out right before we go on to start warming up.”

In addition to Lambert’s use of the i-JAM, the five members of the band rely on RapcoHorizon RoadHog cables each night. Despite being used non-stop during the five weekly performances of the Warped tour, the RapcoHorizon cables have yet to hit their limit. “The RapcoHorizon Company produces great-quality gear that makes it possible for us to perform without any worries,” states Lambert. “It’s also great to have access to a company that is such an avid supporter of local musicians.”

blessthefall is an American post-hardcore band from Phoenix, currently signed to Fearless Records. Founded in 2003 by guitarist Mike Frisby, drummer Matt Traynor and bassist Jared Warth, the band was formed during high school practice sessions. Today, blessthefall consists of five members, including Lambert, Traynor and Warth. Other members are front-man Beau Bokan and Elliott Gruenberg, who recently replaced Frisby on guitar. The band’s third studio album, Awakening, was released in October 2011.

The Warped Tour is a music and extreme sports festival, sponsored by skateboard shoe manufacturer Vans, with stops throughout all of North America. Created in 1994 by Kevin Lyman, the tour began as a showcase for punk rock music, but has more recently favored a diversity of genres. To add to the complicated audio requirements, each stop of the tour is held in parking lots and fields, where stages and other structures must be built each time.

The RapcoHorizon Company, located in Jackson, Missouri, is one of the world’s largest manufacturers and suppliers of audio, video, home theater, data and telecommunications cable in both bulk wire and assemblies. Used worldwide by concert touring sound companies, video and sound contractors, recording studios, system integrators, audiophiles and musicians, The RapcoHorizon Company’s products provide optimal flexibility and premium performance. The company’s state-of-the-art Custom Shop can modify existing products or build new devices to meet any need.

Masque Sound Serves Up Turnkey Solutions for Broadway’s Newest Supper Club

Custom Audio Equipment Package Raises the Temperature at 54 Below

NEW YORK, JULY 12, 2012—Before the doors opened at 54 Below, Broadway’s newest supper club, Masque Sound, a leading theatrical sound reinforcement, installation and design company, was busy installing a custom audio equipment package for the Great White Way’s newest hot spot. Located below what was once the legendary nightclub Studio 54, 54 Below aims to provide an unforgettable New York nightlife experience, combining performances by Broadway’s best with world-class dining in an elegant setting.

Envisioned as Broadway’s living room; a home away from home for show professionals and audiences, 54 Below combines grace and style in an intimate environment. As great sound plays a prominent role in this type of atmosphere, Peter Hylenski, the Grammy, Tony and Olivier Award-nominated sound designer on the project, turned to Masque Sound to supply the club’s audio equipment and help make his vision a reality.

“Having worked with Peter in the past on previous Broadway projects, we knew he was going to come up with an innovative and crowd-pleasing design,” says Matt Peskie, systems engineer, Masque Sound. “Peter’s vision was to ensure that every seat is a good seat; no matter where a patron sits, they would have no issues hearing the performers. To ensure complete coverage, we provided a large quantity of Meyer Sound speakers.”

Masque Sound also equipped 54 Below with a highly flexible Avid SC48 digital console. According to Peskie, “The fact that 54 Below will be able to save and recall settings will be extremely beneficial and time efficient. Many artists will appear for repeated acts, not to mention there will be multiple acts per night, so a digital console like the Avid will allow them go to easily back and forth to recall settings for each act.”

In addition, Masque Sound chose Millennia Media pre-amps. These high-end mic pre-amps can be combined to feed the console as well as the JoeCo black-box recorder. This gives the venue the option of dual recording, both as a primary and backup.

All of the digital signal processing is being handled using BSS processors. The venue is split up into a dozen speaker zones including ceiling speaker zones that can be controlled by BSS blue 10 remotes. This allows the bartender to play an iPod before the show and have control over the whole system. The bartender or sound system operator who has a controller can then go onto a touch screen and fade out the iPod, allowing the Avid SE48 to take over and drive the speaker.

“This was such a unique project to be involved in, as the location is a symbol of the culture and history of New York,” says Hylenski. “Based on my experience with Masque Sound, I was confident that they would help to create the right vibe for this iconic location. I have received nothing but positive feedback in terms of how the rooms and all the shows sound.”

54 Below features up to three shows nightly as well as a late-night lounge. Accommodating 144 people in the main dining room, with all tables situated no more than 24 feet from the stage, the facilities include the capability to broadcast and record audio and video.

“The turnaround time for this project was about nine or 10 weeks from start to finish,” says Peskie. “Due to the aggressive timing, we had to really coordinate on the job site, making sure both the electrical and general contractors had everything they needed. It’s a really aesthetically pleasing room, with ornate ceilings, so the key to a successful install was working closely with the other trades. The final outcome is absolutely beautiful.”

About Masque Sound
Founded in 1936 by a trio of Broadway stagehands, Masque Sound evolved into one of NYC’s most successful theatrical sound reinforcement, installation and design companies specializing in theatrical, house of worship, sporting, corporate, TV broadcast and live concert events. Celebrating more than 75 years in the industry, the company is lead by Geoff Shearing, the firm’s 3rd generation owner, and General Manager Stephanie Hansen. The company also operates Florida-based Professional Wireless Systems, a leader in the development and implementation of wireless technology. Credits range from major Broadway shows and tours including “Phantom of the Opera,” “Mamma Mia!,” “Lion King,” “Jersey Boys,” “Memphis,” “The Book of Mormon,” “Newsies” and “Once” to yearly Super Bowl broadcasts and installations of varying sizes, including New York’s New Victory Theater and historic St. Bartholomew’s Church. Masque Sound’s 70,000 sq. ft. corporate headquarters and main assembly facility is located at 21 East Union Ave., East Rutherford, NJ, 20 minutes from midtown Manhattan.

Ready to Make History Again: Peltrix Installed HARMAN’s JBL VERTEC(r) Line Arrays in Howard Theatre

Peltrix recently installed JBL VERTEC line arrays for the audio system at the restored Howard Theatre in Washington, DC.

NORTHRIDGE, California – Not long ago, the historic Howard Theatre in Washington, DC was slated for the wrecking ball. Built in 1910 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974, the Howard Theatre went from being a showcase for artists like Sarah Vaughn, Buddy Holly, Sammy Davis Jr., James Brown and Duke Ellington to its abandonment in 1980. By the time a non-profit citizens group called the Howard Theatre organization formed in 2006 to raise the $29 million needed to revive the theatre, it was almost in total ruin.

In September 2010 the restoration began, which was completed in April 2012 in a venue of elegance and beauty inside and out. Washington, DC’s Martinez + Johnson Architecture and Marshall Moya Design were responsible for the theatre’s design, architecture and restoration. Systems contractor Peltrix (www.peltrix.com) of Purdys, NY handled the A/V design and installation, which includes a large-scale HARMAN’s JBL VERTEC(r) line array system. Richard Talaske (www.talaske.com) of Oak Park, IL was brought in as the acoustical consultant.

“The inside of the Theatre was a complete disaster,” said Amit Peleg of Peltrix. “The roof was caving in, a pile of debris was in the middle of the floor and it was clear that everything would have to be completely gutted. However, we knew of the Theatre’s past glories and that there was the potential for magnificence buried amid the wreckage.”

The restoration plans had to combine and reconcile historic architectural elements with modern attributes including the A/V wiring, rigging, HVAC system and other aspects that were not present in the original construction. “Although the construction crew wound up tearing down almost everything to the bare walls and even dug a new basement, we had a lot of historical guidelines that we had to conform to, as the Howard Theatre organization wanted to retain the charm and distinctive look and feel of the original venue as it was back in 1910,” Peleg noted.

“Obviously, we couldn’t completely hide a system that included more than 50 JBL loudspeakers,” Peleg continued, “but we worked closely with the Howard Theatre team, the architects and Talaske to strike the best compromise between the placement and performance of the speakers while ensuring the structural integrity of the installation and intruding as little as possible on the interior design.”

The main system includes 20 JBL VERTEC VT4888DP-DA powered midsize line array elements, flown 10 on each side of the stage, along with six VERTEC VT4880ADP-DA fullsize, arrayable powered subwoofers. Four additional ASB7128 subwoofers are placed at ground level. The system also includes two VERTEC VT4887ADP-DA powered compact line array elements for center downfill and two VRX928LA compact Constant Curvature loudspeakers for delay fill under the mezzanine.

The Howard Theatre’s impressive stage monitor system consists of 13 JBL VRX915M floor wedges, two VP71215/95DPDA for side fills and a VP7215/64DPDA powered loudspeaker and ASB7118-DPDA powered subwoofer to deliver the drum mix.

“As I mentioned, we didn’t have the luxury of putting all the speakers exactly where we might have wanted them,” Peleg said. “We couldn’t place any delay speakers in the mezzanine, for example, but on the other hand we were able to install bigger line arrays than we had first envisioned. We also placed some of the side fill speakers on custom moveable brackets so they can be easily moved in and out of the way when the lighting truss is moved into and out of place for different shows. Because the room isn’t that large, we didn’t have to worry about having enough speakers to ensure adequate sound or trying to fit too many speakers into the room.”

“The result is absolutely stunning,” Peleg concluded. “The Howard Theatre is one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen and I’m really proud of the fact that by making some intelligent placement decisions and working closely with everyone involved, our team was able to install an exceptional speaker system that does not detract from the interior design.”

Story Sound Powers Emporium Music Festival with HARMAN’s JBL VTX Line Arrays

Story Sound deployed its brand-new JBL VTX line array system at the massive Emporium festival in the Dutch city of Nijmegen.

NORTHRIDGE, California – Netherlands-based production company Story Sound BV recently deployed its new HARMAN’s JBL VTX line array system at the Emporium dance festival in the Dutch city of Nijmegen. The Festival, which this year drew 30,000 people (and 120 DJ’s), embraces every genre of dance music from trance/progressive to hardstyle.

For the festival, Story Sound deployed almost 350 JBL loudspeakers, including 138 of the new VTX V25 full-range enclosures, powered by 190 Crown I-Tech HD amplifiers. This was the eighth edition of the popular event, which is held annually on the recreational area ‘De Berendonck’ just outside Nijmegen-and Story Sound has been there since the beginning.

Headlining on the largest stage was Sander van Doorn with 12 V25 loudspeakers per side, and a further six per side providing outfield coverage. The main stage also had two delay points, each containing six more VTX arrays, while the VIP section of the tribunes featured two further delay points, each containing six JBL VERTEC(r) VT4887A compact line array elements.

The stage sizes then reduced from area to area, with the smallest containing five V25 loudspeakers per side.

Taking into account three wind directions, Story Sound installed a wireless measuring device to monitor the sound levels (which were restricted to 85dBA at 100 meters), set 100 meters behind three of the stages. “Since VTX is highly focused and offers us more controllability we could produce a higher overall sound level for the audience,” he explained.

Story Sound provided a sound technician to supervise each stage, with wireless laptop communication back to the central network control position in the production village, overseen on the HARMAN HiQnet(tm) platform by Story Sound’s Barney Broomer. “We could listen to the measuring microphone on the same network while we also had a range of Soundcraft desks-Vi6, Vi4, Vi1, Si Compacts on the smaller stages-so we could control the input of the DJ and monitor feeds, as well as the MCs’ microphones, using the dynamics of the desk,” said Story.

Each DJ was provided with two JBL VRX932 loudspeakers per side as high-class reference monitoring so they were not mistaken in thinking that the lack of sound bleeding back onto the stage was an indicator that their levels were too low.

In summary, Story believed the event was a massive success. “JBL’s Performance Manager(tm) is definitely an upgrade from System Architect, where we would have had to design so many custom panels [to achieve the same effect]. This has full input / output metering and thermal monitoring so that we could measure the temperature of the amps, side hangs and run a diagnostic,” he said.

The network had been rock-solid throughout, he confirmed. “It was a very fast and the stability of the Crown amps was very good. All DJ’s were extremely happy with the sound and the promoters were very happy-noting immediately the upgrade in sound quality.”

Oxygen DCT’s New Ultra Low Price ProFlex Monitor Range

Oxygen DCT has consolidated its reputation for constant innovation with the launch of the Evolution ProFlex range of monitors. This latest addition to the popular Evolution Pro range is targeted at more budget conscious installations by offering broadcast picture quality at consumer pricing levels.

Addressing the gallery and studio market, Oxygen DCT’s low cost, high performance Evolution ProFlex broadcast monitors give budget conscious control rooms and galleries access to professional grade monitoring, thus negating the need to use large domestic televisions that don’t offer the same level of picture quality.

There are seven different sizes in the range, from a super 9.7” to a high performance 10 bit, 1.06 billion colour 55” model and an emormous 70” screen. The Evolution ProFlex range is designed to be flexible and is capable of being driven by multi-viewer systems with between four and 64 signals on a single screen. These types of monitors are typically found in control rooms, galleries and outside broadcast vehicles and are the perfect antidote to using low cost domestic or semi-professional monitors. Unlike consumer screens, these monitors are a consistent ergonomic design that will not change model or design every six months as occurs in the consumer market. They also have broadcast colour reproduction with adjustable colour controls, contrast and backlight setting allowing broadcast users to colour match panels together.

The 9.7” screens were initially developed in conjunction with ITN, which installed them in its new Channel Four News room. Following further requests from other customers Oxygen DCT decided to develop a full range of sizes for galleries and outside broadcast vehicles. Each screen is equipped with the latest, high performance LCD panels and low energy LED backlighting. ProFlex monitors are designed to be flexible with control from either rear mounted buttons or a plug-in remote control panel. DVI and HDMI inputs are standard whilst 3G-HD-SDI is optional. Prices for the Evolution ProFlex start from just £355 for the 9.7” to £477 for the 21.5” and £3,330 for the 55” model.

Oxygen DCT’s Evolution Pro series is the most extensive range of video monitors in the industry and includes the Evolution Pro-X series monitors, which are suited to grading and other colour critical viewing applications.
