SAN FRANCISCO: “133rd AES Convention Product Design Track Chair Conrad Cooke has developed a groundbreaking combination of razor edge Tutorials, Workshops and Master Class Events,” states Convention Co-Chair Jim McTigue. “This Track is designed to provide deep insights into emerging technology which is expected to have a lasting impact on the field of pro audio.”

“My goal was to ferret out the most relevant issues facing today’s product designers,” Conrad Cooke said. “I uncovered a wealth of knowledge, and selected thirteen presentations which present techniques to help solve some of those common issues. We are confident that attendees will come away with invaluable information that will greatly benefit their future thinking.”

133rd AES Convention Product Design Track Events Include:

A Next Generation Audio Processing Suite For The Enhancement of Acoustically Challenged Devices: Presenter, Alan Seefeldt, Dolby Laboratories – A commercial audio processing suite has been developed to enhance the sound of acoustically challenged devices such as laptops, tablets, and mobile phones. This tutorial will address the design principles and algorithms developed for the suite. Each example was designed to operate within a common frequency domain framework. Several of these algorithms were tuned specifically for the acoustics of the device on which they operate.

Implementing Application Processor Agnostic Audio Systems For Portable Consumer Applications: Presenter, Jess Brown, Wolfson Microelectronics. – This tutorial will outline future audio trends for portable consumer devices. Areas covered include: HD audio voice, capture, playback and share. The total ‘mouth to ear’ audio solution will be reviewed, from both the technology and device perspectives.

Don’t Make Your Product a Noise Nightmare: William Whitlock, President/Chief Engineer, Jensen Transformers – Audio systems that operate on AC power experience interference in the form of ground voltage differences, magnetic fields, and electric fields. Establishing high immunity in real world, mass-produced equipment is not a trivial issue. This Master Class will probe the critical importance of high common-mode impedances; the disadvantages of legacy test methods; the new IEC test for CMRR; alternatives to ordinary input stages and ubiquitous design errors.

Audio For iPad Publishers: Jeff Essex, AudioSyncrasy – Book publishers are running to the iPad, and not just for iBooks, or one-off apps. This tutorial consists of two case studies which explore how to build audio creation and content management systems to produce multiple apps in high-volume environments, including VO production, concatenation schemes, file-naming conventions, audio file types for iOS, and, helping book publishers transition from the printed page to interactive publishing.

Audio In HTML 5: Jeff Essex, AudioSyncrasy, Jory K. Prum, studio.jory.org – HTML 5 is coming. Many expect it to supplant Flash as an online rich media player, as Apple has made abundantly clear. But audio support is slow in coming, and there are currently marked differences between browsers. From an audio content standpoint, it’s the Nineties all over again. The W3C’s Audio Working Group is developing standards, but this is a fast-moving target. This talk will provide an update on what’s working, what isn’t.

Multimedia Device Audio Architecture: Laurent Le Faucheur, Texas Instruments – This tutorial investigates a low cost, hardware audio architecture that solves several mobile low power multimedia application processor constraints related to: Legacy software reuse, signal processing performance, power optimization, multiple data format interfaces, and low latency voice and tones.

Audio DSP Requirements For Tomorrow’s Mobile & Portable Devices: John Richards, Oxford Digital Limited: Presenters: Peter Eastty ( Oxford Digital), Howard Brown (IDT), Bob Adams (ADI), Alan Kramer (SRS Labs), Julia Backman (Nokia), Cyril Martin (RIM) – As the convergence of communications, entertainment and computing races ahead, largely centered on portable and mobile devices where form factors are shrinking and style wins out over practicality of design in some instances, the challenges in delivering the audio DSP to provide good sound and differentiated effects are discussed by a panel of experts representing semiconductor manufacturers, mobile/portable device manufacturers and DSP IP providers.

Other Product Design Track Presentations Include:

* Ethernet Standard Audio: Steve Lampen, Belden
* Rub & Buzz and Other Irregular Loudspeaker Distortion: Wolfgang Klippel

Seymour-Screen Excellence Introduces The Absolute Acoustically Transparent Film Screen

The Absolute features a fully-closing motorized lateral masking system

Full-Closing A.T. Motorized Lateral Masking Provides Variable Aspect Ratio with Constant Height

ISF-Certified A.T. 4K Surface and Infinite Black™ True Velvet Material Borders

Ames, IA – August 7, 2012 – Seymour-Screen Excellence today announced the debut of its Absolute curved fixed-frame acoustically transparent film-screen with a full-closing, motorized lateral masking system.

The Absolute is the first on the market to offer a motorized lateral masking system that returns to a fully-closed position. The masking system can be programmed to stop at any aspect ratio from 1.33:1 to 2.37:1.
So as to not compromise sound, both the screen and the masking layers are acoustically transparent.

The Absolute is available with either S-SE’s ISF-certified .98 gain Enlightor 4K or 1.1 gain Enlightor 2 acoustically transparent screen surface. The 4K material is a woven fabric that makes possible placement of the screen over in-wall loudspeakers (as close as desired) without creating a frequency or phase acoustic effect. The 4K material is the only AT screen that has no visible features indicating that it is acoustically transparent, and therefore has no minimum seating distance. Both Enlightor materials are free of the historical limitations of moiré or needing EQ compensation.

The Absolute’s 3.7-inch wide borders are comprised of the company’s Infinite Black™ true velvet material which absorbs 99.7% of projected light making for the sharpest border and over-scan absorption available today. “The masking mechanics are located behind the frame so the bezel depth does not get too thick like other masking screens on the market,” says S-SE managing director Chris Seymour.

The Absolute is available in image widths ranging from 70-inches wide (76-inch diag.) to 170-inches wide (184.5-inch diag.). Featured is a full-perimeter groove tensioning system that locks the screen with a perfectly continuous support. Pricing starts at $12,500 (MSRP).

S.E.A.L. Solutions — a Long Island, NY design and installation company with a discerning clientele that includes Hollywood actors, recording artists and professional athletes — installed a 110-inch wide (119.4-inches diag.) Absolute in its Theo Kalomirakis-designed home theater demonstration room, where it is paired with a Runco Q-750i LED DLP video projector.

Of The Absolute’s performance, S.E.A.L. CEO Chris Wyllie says, “I chose Seymour-Screen Excellence because I found the Enlightor 4K surface provides a bright, clear picture. This is extremely important to me as I’ve never been fully satisfied with even the most expensive vinyl-perforated designs available today.”

About Seymour-Screen Excellence
Founded as a joint venture by US-based Seymour AV and UK-based Screen Excellence, SSE combined the leadership and innovation of their acoustically transparent projection screen materials for high-end custom installers and specialty AV retailers in North America. Using the latest in materials and design from Patrice Congard, originator of the modern acoustically transparent screen, the company’s state-of-the-art screens provide flawless picture quality and acoustic transparency, superior to traditional perforated screens or other less exacting woven screen materials. www.seymourscreenexcellence.com

Bexel’s Custom Equipment Rental Package Gives Audiences a Glimpse Inside The Glass House

Tailored Solution Is Perfect Fit for ABC’s Interactive Reality Competition’s Production Needs

BURBANK, CA, AUGUST 7, 2012—Bexel, a unit of the Vitec Group’s Services Division and a leading worldwide provider of broadcast services and solutions, supplied a state-of-the-art custom equipment package for ABC’s new interactive real-time reality competition, The Glass House. As ABC’s second in-house produced show, Bexel worked closely with technical consultant Jerry Kaman and Tim Bock, ABC’s vice president of production for alternative series and specials, to find solutions that would help meet the demands of the aggressive, technically advanced 24-hour show.

The Glass House features 14 contestants living and competing for a quarter-million dollars in a state-of-the-art house that is under complete surveillance, with no access to the outside world. The contestants aren’t just competing with each other, but also playing the game to win over the audience each week.

Bexel supplied more than 50 cameras for The Glass House, including close to 40 robotic cameras, seven fixed cameras and eight large studio cameras/handhelds for the show. Among these were Panasonic’s new AW-HE120 2.2 mega-pixel robotic cameras. Not only do the Panasonic robotic cameras provide excellent picture quality, their entire control system is IP-based. This makes it easy for busy show staff members to deploy the cameras and use off-the-shelf equipment for camera control.

The Glass House is a large-scale job that integrates some of the more complicated equipment that we own,” says Johnny Pastor, director of technical services, Bexel. “From rigging to the engineering and large router infrastructure this is an ideal project for us, as Bexel’s expertise and experience is a perfect fit for these types of reality shows.”

The production also called for robotic cameras with infrared capabilities. For those, Bexel turned to Camera Corps and its Q-Ball. The Q-Ball is Camera Corps’ latest HD/SD pan-and-tilt camera system, combining both appearance and performance in the smallest system currently available. The Q-Ball incorporates a built-in 10x zoom optical lens and smooth accelerating pan/tilt motors in a sturdy, fully weatherproof aluminum sphere with a diameter of 115 mm/4.5in.

For the project, Bexel also built a custom HD control room with a large fiber infrastructure and custom work benches for producers and loggers. A PESA router was utilized with a distributed audio routing system, which made the cabling very easy—requiring the team to simply interconnect everything using fiber.

Technomad Loudspeakers Blanket Larkin Square in Buffalo with Brilliant Audio Quality

Noho C and Vienna weatherproof loudspeakers deliver high-quality music, intelligible announcements across large new public space

BOSTON, August 7, 2012 – The Larkin Development Group of Buffalo, NY has unveiled a multi-purpose public space in the Larkin District of Buffalo, NY to further unite the community. The newly developed Larkin Square is alive with outdoor concerts, retail markets, office buildings, lounge areas and more, bringing people together in a vibrant open-air environment.

Stretching the length of one city block, Larkin Square features an exceptional professional audio system equipped with 25 Technomad advanced audio loudspeakers. The new audio system supports the “Live at Larkin” summer concert series, a weekly Wednesday evening entertainment series featuring local musicians and nationally recognized artists.

Local systems integration firm Powerhouse Pro Systems strategically positioned the loudspeakers throughout the square to maximize coverage for large audiences. The weatherproof loudspeakers deliver background music and announcements, including public safety information, to roughly 10,000 people gathered in the square each week.

The Technomad loudspeakers comprise a mix of the company’s Noho and Vienna loudspeakers, and were chosen for their ability to deliver intelligible voice and background music in a compact and durable package. The weatherproof loudspeakers are unprotected from outdoor elements and deployed in a 70-volt configuration to accommodate lengthy cable runs.

Tony Spencer of the Buffalo-based Powerhouse Pro Systems installed the systems in cooperation with local electrical designer Paul Foxe of Wittburn Enterprises. Spencer, in the AV installation business for more than two decades, consistently uses Technomad loudspeakers for their ability to withstand rigorous climates and project full-range audio with broad dispersion over long distances.

“Technomad loudspeakers were designed to perform under a multitude of weather conditions, whether it’s 90-degree heat in the summertime or below-zero temperatures during winter,” said Spencer. “We get both in Buffalo, so having durable, weatherproof construction that could withstand snow and ice buildup was of major importance. We also wanted loudspeakers that offered good projection and delivered well-rounded audio with an admirable amount of bass. The Noho and Vienna were the perfect fit for this project as they are the ideal size, and deliver superbly intelligible speech and unmatched audio.”

Spencer and Foxe installed 10 Noho loudspeakers on five light poles spread throughout the square. The two-per-light pole strategy ensures an even outdoor audio pattern outside with broad audio coverage at any volume.

The remaining 11 Nohos blanket a covered walkway area that can accommodate 1,000 people, with the loudspeakers positioned high above the crowds. The Nohos in this section are evenly spaced and directed inward to the crowd — ensuring even audio coverage and a pleasant background music soundtrack to match the relaxing, lounge-like atmosphere of the space.

The duo also installed four compact Vienna loudspeakers in the nearby covered stage area, which is an elevated space for smaller live acts.

“We placed the Viennas roughly 10 feet up from the stage floor, which was the ideal height to deliver the perfect pitch here,” said Spencer. “This space doubles as a lounge area with background music when not being used for a live band. The Viennas fill the need perfectly.”

The Technomad system is performing without fail, and Spencer notes that there are future plans to expand Larkin Square with additional shops and recreational space. “I’m used to Technomad performing well, and that’s why I continually rely on their excellence,” he said. “When they expand, we’ll turn to Technomad again. There’s no other choice in my mind.”

ABOUT TECHNOMAD
Technomad LLC, founded in 1995, designs and manufactures loudspeaker systems for the professional audio and security/military technology industries. The company invented the first reliable full-range weatherproof loudspeaker and now offers nine models ranging in power from 60-watt loudspeakers to 1250-watt subwoofers — most available in Turnkey PA System packages featuring amplifiers, mixers and other signal processing equipment in pre-wired racks.
