NEP Enters Into Agreement to Acquire Corplex

Addition of Leading Mobile Broadcast Brand Further Expands NEP’s Pool of Expertise in Delivering Industry-Leading Service for Sports and Entertainment Production

PITTSBURGH — Nov. 20, 2012 — NEP today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Corplex, a Chicago-based provider of digital and HD mobile broadcast production facilities and services. Building on their longstanding relationship, the two companies expect to consummate the transaction on or around Dec. 17, by which date NEP will acquire Corplex’s entire fleet of production vehicles including its three HD trucks: Chromium, Iridium, and Platinum. In addition, Corplex’s renowned engineering and support staff will join the team of top professionals in NEP’s Mobile Unit division.

“We’re proud to add Corplex and its talented and experienced team to our growing network of industry-leading brands in mobile production. The expertise available in both companies, combined with NEP’s depth of resources, will enable us to continue offering exceptional service to our clients focused on major sports and entertainment events,” said Mike Fernander, president and general manager, NEP U.S. Mobile Unit division. “We’ve worked together for many years in some of the world’s largest mobile broadcast compounds; therefore, we know Corplex shares NEP’s core values of delivering superior service, working together as one team, providing innovative solutions, and meeting commitments with integrity and passion.”

The Corplex brand joins NEP’s other high-profile mobile production subsidiaries including Supershooters, NCP, Denali, Sweetwater, and Trio Video. Corplex’s top executives, including current president Scott West, Dave Greany, Joe Scionti, and Carter Ruehrdanz, will all assume significant roles within the NEP Mobile Unit division. As a result of the acquisition, NEP will consolidate all of its Chicago operations at Corplex’s current Lake Bluff, Ill., headquarters.

“The acquisition by NEP is a tremendous opportunity for Corplex and our clients. This allows two financially strong and well-respected companies to join together, and it makes complete sense, given our complementary business focus and our longtime working relationship. We are very pleased to join the NEP team,” said West. “As part of NEP, we’ll be able to offer our clients access to the largest pool of resources in the industry, including some of the leading technology experts and engineers in the mobile broadcasting field.”

Founded in 1985 as a broadcast engineering company, Corplex has grown to become a leader in live television broadcasting. In 1998, Corplex designed and built one of the industry’s first all-digital mobile production units, and the company’s commitment to innovation continues to be reflected today in the design elements of Chromium, Iridium, and Platinum — all state-of-the-art 53-foot expanding HD trailers backed by three graphics/support B-units. Corplex maintains a busy schedule of production for sports, corporate, news, and entertainment events throughout the United States and Canada.

The Sound Room Welcomes the Addition of Two New Employees

November 2012: St. Louis, Mo. – Ray Kroc, founder of McDonalds once said, “You are only as good as the people you hire.” The Sound Room, a St. Louis-based home technology retailer, echoes Kroc’s sentiments by announcing the addition of two new Electronic System Designers—both with extensive home technology backgrounds. The new arrivals, which mark their fourth and fifth new hires this year, continue the company’s mission of bringing the finest home technology solutions that can’t be found at your everyday big-box store.

Dale Nester – With over 20 years of electronics integration under his belt, Nester brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to an already well-rounded staff. Nester, a St. Louis-native, owned and operated an integration company in Las Vegas, NV, designing and installing home theaters and home automation systems for famous Hollywood stars, professional athletes, casino owners and entrepreneurs.

Jim Kuhlmeyer – A lifelong Saint Lousian, Kuhlmeyer began his career in 1984 as a Sales Associate at Goedeker’s Super Store where he was regularly recognized for his achievements in both sales and customer service. After 17 years with Goedeker’s, Kuhlmeyer took his talents to Ultimate Electronics where he helped design and implement a wide-range of integrated systems.

Through their commitment to excellence and growth, The Sound Room has been able to thrive in a market where many home technology stores have been forced to close their doors. Their strategy, which has been in place since 1983, has paid off making them the 28th largest integrator by revenue in the country, according to CE Pro magazine.

“It is no secret that our industry has went through several changes over the last few years, forcing many of our competitors to either downsize or close up all together,” said David Young, founder of The Sound Room. “We have been able to not only ride the storm, but grow our business through a strong emphasis on customer service and high-end products. The way we see the market place is quite simple: quality service and products never go out of style.”

Bryony October’s HARMAN Soundcraft® Si Performer Brings the Best out of Delilah

POTTERS BAR, United Kingdom — Having become synonymous with The Noisettes in recent years as their long-term FOH engineer and production manager, this summer Bryony October took to the road with British singer songwriter (and Chase & Status collaborator), Delilah. In so doing she became an early adopter of the new HARMAN Soundcraft Si Performer digital console—which not only builds on the successful Si platform but is the first desk to incorporate a DMX lighting interface.

Bryony knew she would need a minimum of 31 inputs and that she would also be mixing the 5-piece band’s monitor in-ears from front of house. But her chosen console also needed to be compacted into a small footprint in order to fit into a splitter van (along with IEM rack and mics).

Knowing that this tour would not warrant full production support October had earlier contacted Soundcraft to see if they had any new consoles in prospect. “The timing couldn’t have been better as the Si Performer was just being released,” she said.

With something of a history of mixing female vocal-led pop October quickly discovered that having worked the Soundcraft magic so successfully with Noisettes’ lead singer Shingai Shoniwa on a Vi1, the Performer also ticked all the boxes on her wish list.

Offered the role by tour manager Tim Boardman she went straight into production rehearsals and was soon mixing Delilah’s soulful voice and 5-piece band with no induction necessary.

As for features, the Si Performer’s FaderGlow and colour backlit name displays on every channel proved a godsend. “It has screens on each channel, so you can see the compressors and gates, and the FaderGlow changes colour so you never make a mistake when moving from FOH to monitor mixes,” October said. “It also turns the system EQ red so you can clearly see the graphic.”

“The touch screen is easy to get around quickly, with the one-touch easy mix with buttons across the top of the faders,” October added. “Finally I love the magnetic iPad notes pad which is very handy.”

The entire show mix is placed on the desk’s top layer, with October sub-mixing the drums to a group buss and also Delilah’s vocals and some of the drums to the Lexicon effects.

As for Delilah’s personal monitor mix, she said, “It’s all about the vocal level, reverbs [the desk contains four stereo Lexicon effects engines] and a low mix of everything else. It’s about creating an open and ambient sound so that the artist feels part of the show and can interact with the audience.”

Sonically, she believes, the desk could scarcely be improved—and although October has not had the opportunity to use the DMX interface, the sound engineer notes that “every single venue I arrived at knew that this was the desk with DMX.”

Summing up, October stated, “The Si Performer has been a pleasure to work on. It is an easy desk to navigate and has enabled me to deliver the five monitor mixes and house sound with ease.” She confirms that she would have no hesitation specifying this as her go-to console on any upcoming club venue splitter tour.

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®. The Company is admired by audiophiles across multiple generations and supports leading professional entertainers and the venues where they perform. More than 25 million automobiles on the road today are equipped with HARMAN audio and infotainment systems. HARMAN has a workforce of about 13,900 people across the Americas, Europe and Asia, and reported net sales of $4.4 billion for year ended June 30, 2012.

Spyders Meet Titans at Nashville’s LP Field

It may sound like a summer blockbuster action film, but Spyders met Titans when ANC Sports Enterprises selected Vista Systems’ Spyders to power two of the world’s largest video screens at Nashville’s LP Field, home of the NFL’s Tennessee Titans.

ANC Sports Enterprises, LLC of Purchase, New York, an industry leader in providing integrated signage, design and marketing solutions for sports and commercial facilities, is transforming the professional football experience with an unprecedented approach to sound and video, which debuted for the 2012 NFL season and is now featured at all Titans home games.

ANC Sports installed two HD video displays measuring 157 x 54 feet at LP Field, each featuring 8,478 square feet of LED signage – the largest end-zone video screens in the world. They are also the largest outdoor displays in sports with surface mount LEDs, the next evolution of outdoor signage technology. With over 3 million physical pixels per screen spaced 16mm apart, fans in the stadium will see details as sharp as on their HDTVs at home.

“The new video screens at LP Field are much larger, feature a higher-resolution, and show sharper, crisper content than the previous scoreboards,” notes Chris Mascatello, ANC’s Executive Vice President of Technology Sales. “Our surface mount LED technology provides clearer visuals and better viewing angles than traditional LED lamp video screens.”

Long-time Spyder users, ANC Sports chose Spyder X20 1608s to handle multiple inputs for the screens so they can display PIPs, overlays and transitions. “The Titans run the full gamut of content, including pre-recorded elements and animations, live game action, replays, crowd shots, and statistics,” says Mascatello. “The Spyder enables the Titans’ broadcast staff to seamlessly jump from live action, to replays supplemented with CG, to animated content, to in-game promotion and back to live game action without any alteration in the Technical Director’s preferred workflow.”

Spyder offers ANC Sports the advantage of seamless interaction with the company’s VisionSOFT 64-bit operating system, Mascatello reports. “That integration is a real benefit as DVI from VisionSOFT and HD-SDI from the broadcast switcher are composited into one image for the Spyder with no customization. Spyder’s capability of processing large files in real time supports VisionSOFT, which outputs uncompressed content to the displays creating the sharpest visuals in sports.”

Each end-zone screen can be driven separately by Spyder so different content can be displayed when desired.

More than 800 new audio speakers have also been installed at LP Field. At times the displays will coordinate with the new sound system to synch dynamic visuals with audio.

ANC Sports has formed a 10-year partnership with the Titans, which includes manufacturing, installation, operation, ongoing maintenance, content creation and display usage consultation. In addition to the Titans’ home games, LP Field hosts the Music City Bowl, soccer and concerts and the LED displays are expected to be key components in the fan experience at those events.

DK-Technologies Expands the DK Audio and Loudness Meter Family

DK-Technologies has announced the availability of its DK3 meter AND added the brand new DK4 meter to its award-winning DK METER family.

Like DK3, DK4 offers de-embedding of SDI 3G input channels. Additionally, DK4 includes three AES as well as two Analogue inputs.

Building on the already impressive DK METER Loudness and Audio toolbox, DK4 adds FFT Spectrum analysis, Screen Grabber and the classic MSD Meter Landscape View as standard features. These features are all optionally available for the other meters in the DK METER range.

To coincide with the launch of the DK4, DK-Technologies has also introduced an integrated set-up Wizard that takes DK Meter user friendliness to a whole new dimension. With this quick set-up guide, engineers can get to grips with DK’s powerful metering technology in a matter of minutes, thus giving them a head start with any meter in the DK range.

Jacob Hänel Christensen, Sales and Marketing Director for DK-Technologies, says: “With the addition of DK4, the DK METER reach has once again been expanded. Broadcasters and Post Production engineers can now monitor everything from compliant Loudness Measurements and True Peak readouts, through to detailed Spectrum Analysis.”

In common with the other meters in DK-Technologies range, the DK4 is compliant with all known loudness recommendations including; EBU R128, BCAP, ATSC A/85, ARIB, ABC, AGCOM 219 & ITU BS1770-2. Alongside StarFish™, Vectorscope and Moving Coil Emulations, new software features also include ‘Eye Width’ Instant SDI signal quality read out.

Since the launch of DK1 in 2011, the DK METER range has been rapidly adopted by broadcast and post production companies because it meets industry demand for cost-effective stereo and 5.1 metering, including loudness. No bigger than a smart phone, all of the meters in the range are easy to install and can be powered from a computer USB port, making them ideal for location recording. They are supplied with standard DK-Technologies meter scales plus the industry-standard StarFish™ and deliver conventional metering as well as loudness metering at the same time, on the same display and in a single box. Pricing for these products is highly competitive – starting at just $1499.00 in the US and €995.00 in Europe.
