Westchester County Center – Revitalized Acoustics Draw Stars — And Crowds

Première Artists Bring Good Vibrations To Classic Venue

WHITE PLAINS, NY: An entrepreneur with a wide range of music business interests, Irwin Kornfeld has sparked new awareness for the eighty-year-old Westchester County Center. An adroit upgrade of the facility’s acoustics, coupled with a state of the art sound system, has landed the WCC and its new “Pepe Infiniti Concert Series” on the radar of booking agents and performing artists seeking viable venues for tri-state concert dates. The series’ launch featured The Beach Boys in concert in mid-May, nearly fifty years after their first WCC gig. The Johnny Winter Band and Edgar Winter Group, Boston, Il Volo, Whoopie Goldberg, Aretha Franklin and others are booked through November.

A long-time Pleasantville resident, Kornfeld recognized the need for a larger local performance venue. But, having seen shows at the WCC years ago, he knew the County Center couldn’t attract discriminating artists (or audiences) until the acoustics and sound system were improved. “I approached the County with a carefully considered proposal,” he says. “Our company, Westchester Media, Inc. would help improve the County Center’s acoustics, and in return have a wonderful venue in which to present premier entertainment,” he said.

Kornfeld’s next move was to contact the Walters-Storyk Design Group, a NY-based architectural/acoustic design firm whose credits range from Jazz At Lincoln Center to such top NY clubs as Le Poisson Rouge and the just completed 54 Below. “A few years ago I read an interview with WSDG principal John Storyk in In Tune Monthly, a music education magazine we publish,” Kornfeld says. “In addition to their high profile performance venue credits, WSDG has created recording studios for stars ranging from Jimi Hendrix to Alicia Keys. We were delighted when WSDG agreed to take on the Westchester County Center. After partner/project manager Joshua Morris provided us with their analysis and recommendations, we knew we could make this venue work for concerts and theatrical productions.”

The WSDG proposal addressed a number of significant sound distortion problems, including poor intelligibility and a lack of acoustic accuracy. “The Westchester County Center had some acoustic work done in 1988, but the critical listening issues weren’t adequately addressed,” Joshua Morris reports. “Our modeling and measurement tests determined the problems could be ameliorated through a combination of electro-acoustic solutions. The 57′ high curved ceiling and the truss cavity beneath needed to be treated with a total of 1,120 2′x4′ 4″ thick perforated PVC lapendary panels, providing almost 9,000 sq. ft. of broadband absorption. QuietStar Industries suspended these units from the ceiling with cables, which have greatly improved upon the existing ceiling reflector treatments that remained from the 1988 acoustic effort, reducing our reverberation time, especially in the lower frequencies, to manageable levels.”

WSDG also recommended that 270 sq. ft. of Rosebrand Charisma velour curtains be hung on strategic sections of the balcony edge. Additionally, WSDG worked with pro audio expert Chuck Ballantine of Pleasant Valley-based, Ballantine Communications & Staging to select an package of 11 ElectroVoice subwoofer rows, two vertical stacks of four subwoofers each, and stereo line arrays to assure the best conceivable audio system for the WCC. “We’ve worked with WSDG on other projects, and I’ve worked shows in the WCC for years, so we were very familiar with the venue,” Ballantine says. “ElectroVoice has a solid, product line and an excellent support team. This new sound system, coupled with WSDG’s acoustic treatments makes the WCC a extremely viable performance option.”

“We’ve been monitoring shifts in live performance trends, and felt the WCC had enormous potential for artists capable of filling halls with between three and five thousand seats,” Kornfeld said. “Acts fall into three basic booking categories: Those who can fill a 200-300 seat club, megastars who can sell-out 35,000+ seat stadiums, and performers who can draw fans to convenient, competitively priced shows in mid-sized venues that offer great sound, a sense of intimacy and a clear site-line. There are only a handful of halls that meet those specs in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut,” he adds. “The County Center sounds great now. Fans that have been attending events here for years commented on the marked improvement to the acoustics. After our Beach Boys sell-out, we know we can compete for the best shows that come to our area.”

Commenting on the project John Storyk remarked, “Acoustic restoration is an art and science. Virtually everyone on our staff of designers and engineers started out as musicians, myself included. A wealth of products and options exist today, which are capable of ameliorating negative acoustic issues. The process of eliminating reverberation, enhancing sound and speech intelligibility, fine-tuning a hall like the Westchester Community Center requires precise measurements and the ability to make effective, reasonably priced recommendations. Our goal is to provide audiences with a high quality listening experience. We were delighted to be associated with this project, and we look forward to enjoying the benefits of our advice. We’ll be there for Aretha!”

Gardner-Webb University Installs Two Dante-enabled Yamaha CL Consoles

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Gardner-Webb University in Boiling Springs, North Carolina has experienced remarkable growth, perseverance, and maturity since it began as a movement initiated by the Kings Mountain Baptist Association in 1905. The University began as Boiling Springs High School and later became a junior college in 1927, and renamed Gardner-Webb College in 1948. The institution officially became known as Gardner-Webb University in 1993, culminating years of preparation. Today, Gardner-Webb is flourishing with five professional schools, two academic schools, and 11 academic departments that offer just over 5,000 students, 60 undergraduate and graduate fields of study.

Recently, the University installed Yamaha CL1 and CL5 digital consoles and two RIO3224s purchased by Full Compass and installed by University staff in cooperation with the ASE Group. The consoles are located in their new 110,000-sq. ft. Tucker Student Center in Stewart Hall. Stewart Hall is unique in that it can be separated into three separate spaces.

“The performance space is non-traditional and very flexible,” states Wayne E. Johnson, Associate VP for Operations, Gardner-Webb University. “Stewart Hall works in either a coffee house/club setting by lowering electric disappearing Skyfold walls, or in an auditorium or banquet setting by raising the walls. When lowered, the center room has a balcony on three sides with bistro table seating.”

About the new CL consoles, Johnson says that the system sounds great and has a superb operational design. “We had previously been using an LS9 in older venues, but the CL Series offers much more flexibility. We also integrated with Symetrix for Dante distribution and are using MYMIX cards as well, so there are no traditional audio connections. The entire project (audio, video, monitor, lighting) is all running off Cat5. Due to the flexibility of the space, we wanted to be able to re-patch anything from speakers to light fixtures over one single wiring network.”

JVC Ships Versatile GY-HM600 ProHD Camera

WAYNE, NJ – JVC Professional Products Company, a division of JVC Americas Corp., is now shipping the GY-HM600, its next-generation handheld ProHD camera. Introduced earlier this year at the 2012 NAB Show, the new HD camera features a built-in 23x zoom lens and delivers superior low-light performance with excellent sensitivity (F11 at 2000 lux).

With a 1.22 MP color viewfinder and color 3.5-inch LCD, the GY-HM600 is versatile enough to handle tripod-based shots and run-and-gun situations. It is equipped with three, 1/3-inch 12-bit CMOS sensors, each with 1920×1080 pixels. The built-in Fujinon HD lens features a wide focal range of 29mm-667mm (35mm equivalent) and has manual focus, zoom, and iris rings, along with three ND filters. Other features include auto-focus with face detection and an optical image stabilizer.

The lightweight camera records HD or SD footage in multiple file formats, including native XDCAM EX™ (.MP4), Final Cut Pro™ (.MOV), and AVCHD, to non-proprietary SDHC or SDXC media cards. In addition to relay mode for uninterrupted recording, the GY-HM600 allows simultaneous recording to both memory cards for instant backup or client copy. Plus, the Pre Rec (retro cache) feature continuously records and stores up to 20 seconds of footage in cache memory to help prevent missed shots of breaking events.

Equipped with a LANC-based remote connector and compatible with JVC’s ProHD Compact Studio seven-inch monitor, the GY-HM600 can be used for an affordable studio system. The camera also includes a time-code synchronization input as well as HD-SDI and HDMI outputs. A built-in stereo microphone is ideal for capturing natural sound, but the GY-HM600 also includes two XLR inputs with phantom power, shotgun mic holder, headphone jack, and additional input for a wireless mic receiver.

“Our new GY-HM600 delivers innovation without compromise,” said Craig Yanagi, manager, marketing and brand strategy. “With amazing images and the industry’s fastest shoot-to-edit workflow, it’s a full-feature camera that’s ideal for news, sports, live presentations, and independent production.”

Another new ProHD camera, the GY-HM650, will be available this winter. Specifically designed for mobile newsgathering, it has similar specs to the GY-HM600 but includes built-in FTP and Wi-Fi connectivity. With its dual codecs, it simultaneously produces full HD files and smaller, Web-friendly files that can be delivered to a station without a microwave or satellite connection.

The GY-HM600 has a suggested list price of $4,695, while the GY-HM650 will have a suggested list price of $5,995.

Clay Paky Sharpys and grandMA2 Consoles Play the Made in America Festival

Clay Paky Sharpy fixtures and numerous grandMA2 lighting consoles were on hand throughout Budweiser’s Made in America Festival, which entertained crowds on Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway on Labor Day Weekend. Jay-Z and Pearl Jam headlined main stage concerts on Saturday and Sunday, respectively; punk rockers, up-and-coming rappers and native Philly artists packed the other stages across the venue. A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive distributor for both Clay Paky and grandMA in North America.

Nick Whitehouse, the lighting designer for the main stage, was tasked with creating a rig “that pleased everyone and looked different for the two headline acts. It had to be efficient to meet both Jay-Z’s and Pearl Jam’s wishes for their shows and incorporate the needs of the other performers. The overall design fit the stage/set design based on a huge eagle formed from LED-panels that fitted the Americana theme” and evoked the iconic Anheuser-Busch (Budweiser) eagle logo.

Whitehouse used 68 Clay Paky Sharpy fixtures, arrayed in groups of four, to mimic the look of Par64 ACL bars. “They did that very successfully,” he reports. “A lot of the looks used the frost to help make this happen, and they very rarely moved while lit.”

He notes that the Sharpys “really show up on outdoor semi-daylight shows like no other fixtures, and they give background to the camera shots, which was very important since the whole festival was streamed live on YouTube. The Sharpys performed perfectly as always.”

A grandMA2 deployed for the main stage handled “everything we threw at it,” he reports. “It really showed how powerful a system it is.” Whitehouse extensively used the partial show read and clone feature to merge incoming acts into the festival show. He also divided the console into worlds so the incoming lighting designer could control the background of the rig and the TV gaffer (with a second online console and separate user) could run the broadcast key lights and ride inhibits of the whole rig without getting in the way. grandMA3d was also used extensively for daylight programming and fixes when required.

“A number of the lighting designers who were used to the grandMA1 became converts to grandMA2 after the festival because [the new console] showed how easy it was to pull such a large show together quickly and easily,” Whitehouse notes.

“As always, the A.C.T guys made supporting their users their top priority. A.C.T is a really great company to deal with, and we thank them for their MA programming support,” he adds.

But that’s not all.

John Duncan, Jr. of Pinpoint Lighting was the lighting designer and equipment supplier for Made in America’s B stage and electronic dance music pad. “Both stages had grandMA2 full size units and grandMA2 Lights,” he reports. “All of the 24 chrome Sharpys were spread out over the electronic tent with eight on the stage and 16 around the house.”

Duncan says he “loves” the Sharpy fixtures for “their nice beam and how it cuts through no matter how much fog or haze there is. It just punches.”

The grandMAs also performed “great,” he notes. “We had them slaved together on the B stage and had two users since we were running TV lighting at the same time. They performed very well.”

Audio Engineering Society And OCA Alliance To Collaborate On ‘Open Control Architecture’ Standard

NEW YORK: The Audio Engineering Society (AES) and the OCA Alliance have jointly announced that an AES standards project has been founded to consider OCA, the Open Control Architecture, for a public standard for control and monitoring of professional media networks.

The goal of this project, identified as: AES-X210, “Open Control Architecture (OCA),” is to produce a public, open, and royalty-free communications protocol standard for reliable and secure control and monitoring of interconnected audio devices in networks of 2 to 10,000 elements.

When the standard is complete, it is hoped that OCA will find broad acceptance in the media systems industry, and open a new era in standardized, interoperable control of devices from diverse manufacturers.

OCA will be a control and monitoring standard, not a media transport standard. It is intended to operate seamlessly with a wide range of media transport standards such as AES-X192, “High-performance streaming audio-over-IP interoperability” – currently in development – and IEEE AVB. Together, these standards will offer a path to complete network application solutions for future media networks that include both media transport and system control functionality.

OCA is substantially based on work done in the early 1990′s by the AES24 project, a pioneering effort in network system control. Although AES24 never reached full standards status, it offered a number of advanced concepts, which have found their way into various developments over the years.

In the coming months, the AES-X210 task group, part of AES working group SC-02-12 on Audio Applications of Networks, will be meeting to render the current OCA 1.1 specification into standards form and to shepherd its processing through the AES’s open standards process. Interested individuals are encouraged to participate. The full standards participation policy is available from the AES Standards website. During this period, the OCA Alliance will undertake various initiatives to support the work of AES-X210, and to define proposals for future extensions to the standard.

Crystallizing the focus of the new alliance, AES Standards Committee Chair, Bruce C. Olson remarked, “AES Standards has been deeply involved with standards for digital audio since starting work in 1977. The AES-X210 project to standardize OCA takes us to the next important milestone by integrating control with transport of audio over a variety of networks. Combined with a number of other projects in this exciting area of audio the AES continues to lead the world in audio standards, which enable a thriving marketplace for compatible products from competing manufacturers. We are very pleased to collaborate with the leading manufacturers in the OCA Alliance on this standards project.”
