Idol Puerto Rico Starts Second Season with Yamaha CL5 Digital Audio Console

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Idol Puerto Rico is a reality television competition seeking to find the next best solo singing talent. Sound familiar? That is because it is part of the Idol franchise, based on the British TV show Pop Idol and the U.S version American Idol all created by Simon Fuller. Now In its second season, Idol Puerto Rico made its debut in August 2011 and has recently added a spin off entitled Idol Kids Puerto Rico.

Ricky’s Audio Corporation of Arecibo, PR handles audio production for the show, and has supplied a new Yamaha CL5 digital audio system for the live mix to direct TV audio feed. Idol Puerto Rico is performed and transmitted live every Monday from the 1,900-seat “Centro de Bellas Artes de Caguas” theater. The audio system is distributed in three main locations: the TV broadcast room which houses the new CL5, the performance stage where two Yamaha RIO-2416 remote I/O boxes reside, and the front of house and monitor system that includes a Yamaha M7CL digital console with three Dante-MY16-AUD cards and two Cisco Gigabit switches.

A long-time Yamaha console provider, Ricky’s first mixer was a Yamaha MC1604, followed by newer analog and digital mixers, including the 01V96, LS9, and M7CL-48. “There were many factors that contributed to our decision to purchase a CL5,” states Néstor J. Heredia, 
Executive VP/Electrical Engineer, Ricky’s Audio Corporation. “The most important factor was knowing that Yamaha mixers are widely accepted and present on almost all riders, which makes the CL5 ideal for our rental inventory since most engineers will immediately feel familiar with it. Another important factor in our decision to purchase the CL5 was the ability to use a normal Ethernet cable as a transport for the Dante network along with the flexibility this protocol has to offer.”

“The Yamaha CL system sounds amazing,” says Heredia. “I am a real big fan of the sound of the PM5D, and I like the sound of the new CL Series even more.”

PixelFLEX Showcases Growing Line of Innovative LED Curtains at LDI 2012

PixelFLEX, a leading provider of flexible and lightweight LED video screens, will showcase its growing line of innovative LED Curtains at LDI 2012 in Las Vegas (Booth 2135). After the successful launch of its initial 20mm video screen at last year’s LDI Show, PixelFLEX has expanded its product offerings to include 18mm, 30mm, 50mm and 100mm screens – providing a variety of video display solutions to meet any and all live event needs.

Easy to operate and set up – videos and images can be sent to the screen using any computer with a DVI-D connection – PixelFLEX LED Curtains are available from low resolution to high resolution, allowing users to demonstrate simple effects or elaborate videos. Each typical screen panel is approximately 8×4, but modifications can be made easily to meet specific needs – panels can be attached together with PixelFLEX’s proprietary quicklock system.

Flexible in all directions, PixelFLEX LED Curtains are able to bend and shape around structures for a more creative display effect and can be stored in a single road case to simplify shipping. This flexibility, in combination with the product’s extraordinary light weight – PixelFLEX LED Curtains range from 4.5 lbs to 19.9 lbs per square meter, which is 60 to 90 percent less than most other LED video screens – provides substantial savings on transportation costs.

“Earlier this year, we used PixelFLEX’s LED Curtain at one of the largest trade shows in the country to attract attention to our exhibit and the results were exceptional,” said Corky Seeber, president of Small Tree, designers of cost-effective, Ethernet-based shared storage solutions. “The LED Curtain enabled us to have a very dynamic presentation making our booth easier to find for attendees and thus, brought more potential customers to us.”

Many well-known performers, such as musicians Rascal Flatts, TobyMac and Skillet, and Luke Bryan currently use the PixelFLEX LED Curtain to enhance their live performances with sharp video and effects. The company’s video display solution has also been used by Jimmy Kimmel Live and Joel Osteen, one of the country’s most well-known ministry leaders.

University of North Texas Students Produce New Sitcom with Hitachi Z-HD5000 HD Cameras

WOODBURY, NEW YORK – Hitachi Kokusai Electric America, Ltd., today announced that Radio-TV-Film students at the University of North Texas (UNT) in Denton, Texas used four of the department’s six Hitachi Z-HD5000 HDTV studio production cameras to produce three half-hour episodes of an original sitcom, “Peppuccinos.”

The sitcom—created and produced by Noah Sargent while an undergraduate senior in the spring of 2012—takes place in a shop that offers coffee on one side and pizza on the other, hence the name “Peppuccinos.”

Sargent and fellow radio-TV-film students volunteered their time to tackle every aspect of the demanding multi-camera production—including scriptwriting, manning cameras, technical directing, lighting design, audio recording, and music composition. They also had help from UNT theater students who lent their acting talents to bring the project to life while cameras rolled before a small studio audience.

“This was one of the most ambitious projects we’ve attempted, and the results were impressive. Were it not for the quality of these Hitachi cameras, we probably wouldn’t have attempted this,” said James M. Martin, a senior lecturer at the University of North Texas and technical supervisor of the sitcom. “The Hitachi cameras produced excellent HD image quality, and the students were able to ‘dial in’ the exact look they wanted because the camera shading controls were so easy to use.”

All six Hitachi cameras—purchased through Hitachi dealer Burst Communications in Houston—are outfitted with Hitachi CU-HD500 camera control units (CCUs) and RU-1000VR remote control panels.

“Producing these sitcom episodes put our students in a real-world, multi-camera television environment where they could really apply and refine the skills they learned in class,” said Martin. Prior to the “Peppuccinos” project, UNT students primarily produced newscasts, such as “The NTTV Nightly News,” a daily, half-hour news report featuring field reports via Skype; elections coverage for broadcast by local cable systems; as well as a Spanish language program. UNT has won several “Lone Star Emmy Awards for Excellence in Student Broadcasting” and other awards.

This student-driven sitcom production maximized UNT’s video facility resources, especially Studio A where the “Peppuccinos” set and risers for up to 35 audience members were constructed. The larger of two UNT studios, Studio A has an adjacent control room that houses a Ross Vision-M 1.5-M/E multi-format switcher, Compix Synergy 2 dual-channel HD graphics system, Blackmagic Design Videohub router, and a 360 Systems HD Max server.

“Since we installed six Hitachi Z-HD5000 HD cameras in 2010, we’ve transitioned to a fully digital, HD-SDI workflow that helps make the most of the high-quality imagery these cameras capture,” Martin said. “As a university facility, we need to stretch our dollars as far as they can go to provide our students with the best possible studio production experience, and Hitachi enables us to do that.”

The three “Peppuccinos” episodes were staged and recorded in one weekend, and that video is being edited by students using Apple Final Cut Pro. When finished, the shows will air on North Texas Television, a local origination channel devoted to UNT programming that is offered by the local Charter cable system, as well as on UNT’s website.

“This was a unique project that brought two UNT departments together—Radio, TV, Film and Performing Arts,” said Martin who collaborated with UNT Theater Professors Adam Chamberlin and Mario Tooch. “Based on the success of these three episodes, we’re looking forward to offering more multi-camera production projects and classes where students can obtain valuable skills and academic credit. Our goal is to prepare our students for the media jobs of the 21st century by giving them training they can’t get anywhere else.”

Young Guru Joins Platinum Engineer/Producer Panel

SAN FRANCISCO: AES Executive Director Bob Moses has announced that inMusic Brands’ Akai Professional and M-Audio are the Platinum Sponsors of the 133rd AES Convention. Coordinated by company Tradeshow and Events Manager, Lee Cwiek, the far-ranging sponsorship will provide these brands with extensive visibility across the entire AES Convention.

As a leading manufacturer of cutting-edge professional digital audio technology and musical instruments, we believe this convention provides the perfect platform to engage directly with our customers and with industry thought leaders in meaningful and exciting ways.”

“We are pleased to welcome Akai Professional and M-Audio as our Platinum Sponsors,” Moses said. “This is a great vehicle to serve these two great companies to the fullest extent possible. It is especially apropos that Young Guru, one of their highest-profile spokesmen, will participate in our Project Studio Expo on Saturday, Oct. 27 from 5-6pm, and, in our Platinum Producers and Engineers Panel, Sunday afternoon, Oct. 28, from 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm. He’ll be in terrific company, with legendary producer/engineers Jack Douglas, Warren Huart and Narada Michael Walden. Moderated by Michael Romanowski, a mastering ace and president of the NARAS Board of Governors, this superstar panel will be one of the Convention’s hottest tickets.”

“AES is the ideal venue to discuss the state of the art and to present products and technology that move it forward, added inMusic Brands’ Director of Marketing, David Frederick. “These are among the many reasons we’ve invited award-winning producer and engineer and long time MPC icon Young Guru to participate in a variety of sponsored panels.

At the AES, Young Guru will share his wealth of experiences and domain expertise on the ‘Era of an Engineer’ panel. For recording professionals, these are must-attend conversations.”

Commenting on his participation at the AES, Young Guru said, “This is truly the ‘Era Of The Engineer.’ There isn’t a person under 30 years old without a pair of headphones. This means there needs to be more dialogue about sound and how we are going to innovate at the rate of its accessibility to the masses. I’m looking forward to making my first appearance as an AES speaker at this year’s convention.”

“The 133rd Convention is shaping up as one of the most exciting in AES history,” Bob Moses concludes. “We are working hard to introduce important new events like our Project Studio Expo, and program tracks such as Sound For Pictures and Networked Audio. We’ve built a healthy exhibitor base, crowned by the Akai Professional and M-Audio Platinum Sponsorship. And, our Convention Committee has developed another killer program of Workshops, Broadcast/ Streaming, Live Sound, Technical Tours and Special Events. We anticipate a fantastic event.”
