Revolabs Selects VITEC Distribution GmbH and POLYFON Distribution AG as New Distributors of Revolabs FLX(TM)

SUDBURY, Mass. — Dec. 10, 2012 — Revolabs Inc. today announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with VITEC Distribution GmbH, parent company to POLYFON Distribution AG. Based in Germany, VITEC is a specialist distributor of audio and video conferencing, presentation, and telecommunications solutions. Under the agreement, VITEC and Polyfon will distribute the Revolabs FLX(TM) wireless conference phone throughout Germany and Switzerland, respectively.

“Over the last year, we have focused on expanding our distribution network across the globe,” said Marc Cremer, COO at Revolabs. “As a result, we have seen tremendous demand for all our wireless audio products internationally, and particularly for our FLX wireless conference phone. Partnering with VITEC and POLYFON is a key move in continuing our expansion and meeting the demand for FLX in Germany and Switzerland.”

“The FLX wireless conference phone will make an excellent addition to our lineup of conferencing solutions,” said Wilhelm Mettner of VITEC and POLYFON. “For all of our customers — from small businesses to large enterprises — there is a great demand for wireless solutions that provide exceptional audio quality. The FLX meets this need, while also providing easy set up, compatibility with all major video conferencing systems, and much more. We are excited to offer these unique advantages to our customers.”

The FLX combines wireless operation with high-quality wideband audio, 128-bit encryption, and integrated Bluetooth(R). Unlike the single-component design of other solutions, the systems consist of several distinct components, giving users unprecedented freedom with respect to placement and accessibility of the speaker, microphones, and dial pad. Because its dialer operates like a telephone for handset calls, the FLX eliminates the need for a separate desk and conference phone. FLX is available with a variety of Revolabs microphones, including lapel, omnidirectional, and directional tabletop microphones.

Available in analog or VoIP interfaces, the Revolabs FLX is the first and only wireless conference phone designed for VoIP networks. Ideal for conference rooms, executive offices, and SoHo environments, the FLX integrates directly with most IP telephone switches that follow the SIP standard, enabling new features — such as voicemail alerts and “do not disturb” — previously only available through digital switch environments. The ideal unified communication technology, the FLX can also serve as the audio interface for virtually any major brand of video-conferencing equipment.

FOR-A to Demo the FT-ONE 4K Super Slow Motion Camera at Sports Video Group’s League Technology Summit

Fort Lee, N.J.– Professionals in the sports industry will gather next week to discuss best practices and share new technologies in sports production at the Sports Video Group’s League Technology Summit. FOR-A Company Limited, a leading manufacturer of video and audio systems for the broadcast and professional video industries, will exhibit the FT-ONE full 4K high resolution variable frame rate camera at the event. The summit takes place at the New York Hilton today and tomorrow, December 10-11.

Introduced earlier this year, the FT-ONE 4K super slow motion camera is ideal for high-end sports production. The camera features FOR-A’s originally developed, state-of-the-art high-sensitivity CMOS color sensor. The FT-ONE has the ability to record up to 900 frames per second, and can record and play back full 4K film look imagery. One output channel can provide full 4K (four 1080p HD-SDI) outputs, while the other output channel provides down-converted HD-SDI for live viewing and play back. The FT-ONE captures images as uncompressed raw data on the system’s internal memory, which has a recording capacity of 9.4 seconds. This data is then stored on one of two hot-swappable SSD cartridges, each of which is capable of storing 84 seconds of full 4K resolution images.

“The SVG Technology Summit focuses on the latest products and trends in sports production,” said Pedro Silvestre, Sales Director, FOR-A America. “As the world’s first full 4K super slow motion camera, the FT-ONE epitomizes the idea of product innovation. This is the reason why we chose to demo the camera at this event. We feel that the summit is a great chance for FOR-A to showcase the FT-ONE to some of the top professionals in the sports technology industry.”

Production Giant Pinewood Studios Group Chooses Calrec Audio for Television Sound Control

HEBDEN BRIDGE, U.K. — Dec. 10, 2012 — Calrec, a leading supplier of audio consoles for on-air and live production, announced that international production powerhouse Pinewood Studios Group has installed an Artemis Beam console in its new 5.1-capable sound-control gallery to mix audio for live and recorded television shows, the first of which was a children’s show for BBC. The sound-control gallery is part of a new television studio facility in Buckinghamshire, England, which includes all new control galleries and equipment. Pinewood produces high-profile TV shows such as “Got To Dance” and “Would I Lie To You” plus world-famous films including the recently released James Bond film, “Skyfall.”

“Our technical team evaluated several consoles in the process of selecting a sound desk for our new TV studios, and preferred the Calrec Artemis,” said Pinewood Broadcast Director Paul Darbyshire. “We were looking for a desk that would provide more channels both in and out, along with greater flexibility and ease of programming. With the Artemis we feel we have achieved that and more. It’s easy to understand why Calrec is so highly regarded in the broadcast industry.”

Pinewood’s 64-fader Artemis Beam console gives sound engineers more available channels and the ability to link those channels to the studio floors via fiber. The console also boasts Calrec’s Bluefin2 high-density signal-processing technology, which gives Pinewood a more robust console in a smaller footprint while consuming less power.

Darbyshire said the Artemis Beam is more intuitive to use and requires less time to create and recall show memories, which streamlines the production process. The team also appreciates the full redundancy offered by Calrec consoles that has earned them a reputation of being very reliable. This is especially relevant when producing live light entertainment and music shows.

“Not only do many sound supervisors working on shows at Pinewood prefer Calrec consoles, but our production clients also see benefits,” Darbyshire said.

More information about the Artemis Beam console and other Calrec products is available at calrec.com.

Martin Audio OmniLine® Conquers High Reverberation In Award-Winning Installation At Sydney Railway Terminus


A Martin Audio OmniLine® system has been specified and installed at Central Railway Station in Sydney, the largest in Australia, to conquer a speech intelligibility problem that has persisted for years.

The Country Trains Concourse, measuring 360 ft x 196 ft x 32 ft with a challenging RT60 time of 5.5 seconds in the mid-band, has long defied attempts to get intelligible announcements heard by commuters. Over the years, many brands have successively tried and failed to tame the inherent reverberation caused by a combination of terrazzo floors, sandstone and plate glass walls and a high arched steel roof.

Last year Glenn Leembruggen, principal of Acoustic Directions, became the latest specialist to do battle with the acoustically hostile environment.

Since acoustic treatment of the inside of the roof was ruled out as being financially untenable, two members of the Acoustic Directions team, David Connor and David Gilfillan, decided to trial several software-driven systems and different steerable line array solutions.

They ultimately concluded that a Martin Audio OmniLine system, with DSP processing, would produce the best quality and best speech clarity. They duly specified 120 steered elements supplied by TAG, Martin Audio’s Australian distributors.

Modular and scalable, this particular OmniLine installation used a special version of the Martin Audio Display software (operating under an FIR filtering scheme that addressed every element in the array with its own processed channel). The intelligent software enabled the array to be configured to deliver sound precisely over the venue’s vertical profile without spillage. Furthermore, elimination of high-frequency side-lobes gives OmniLine an advantage over conventional DSP steered columns making it suitable for high quality speech and music reproduction even in reverberant spaces such as railway station concourses.

Acoustic Directions were thus able to simultaneously optimize the direct field over the listening area, keep the sound off reflective rear walls, and minimise reverberant sound power. The result is remarkably high intelligibility throughout the concourse, even at rush hour, when as many as 3,000 passengers are adding to the cacophony of noise resonating around this vast cavern.

With the amps situated as much as 650 ft away from the speakers, a 100 Volt system was required, and Acoustic Directions worked with Harbuch Electronics to develop a 100V loudspeaker transformer that was ultra-flat and with only 10 degrees of phase shift at 20kHz. The FIR filters that beam control the array are implemented in Nion processors with the loudspeakers being driven by 8-channel 2.4kW amplifiers (to provide 120 amp channels).

Acoustic Directions optimized the frequency responses over the listening area using time-windowed impulse responses.

The installation also picked up a coveted Rutledge AV Industry Award (an AVIA) with the judges commending Acoustic Directions’ meticulous implementation of the modelling, installation and commissioning of the system.

As a result, for the first time not only can amplified speech be easily understood in any part of the concourse, but music and pre-recorded messages sound natural and clear—and roaming hand-held wireless microphones can function without fear of feedback.

In fact, such is the confidence inspired by this new solution, that special events, promotions and even live music events are being hosted at Sydney’s Central Railway Station, using the house system!

About Martin Audio®
Founded by audio engineer David Martin in 1971, Martin Audio pioneered the use of all-horn-loaded bass designs in world-class touring loudspeaker systems for groups such as Pink Floyd, ELP and Supertramp. Located outside of London, Martin Audio now embodies a sophisticated mix of acoustic design, research, mathematical modeling and software engineering for a wide range of products in the installation, cinema and touring sound markets.

About OmniLine®
OmniLine is a versatile, micro-line array designed for installation in a wide variety of architectural environments. Its modular approach and scalability extend its use from foreground applications to sound reinforcement in large acoustic spaces. Intelligent software enables an array to be configured to deliver sound precisely over any vertical angle to fit the venue profile without spilling onto surfaces where sound is not required. Additionally, elimination of high-frequency side-lobes gives OmniLine the advantage over currently available DSP steered columns, making it suitable for high quality music reproduction as well as speech in large, reverberant spaces. Each array is constructed by connecting multiple modules. Up to 32 modules can be connected where both high output and vertical focusing down to low/mid frequencies are required. Smaller number of modules (down to 4) can be used for shorter-throw applications, where vertical focusing of the low/mid frequencies is less important. This scalability means that OmniLine can be used in a variety of applications. Visually, an OmniLine array is slim and unobtrusive, with soft lines that minimize its visual presence in an architectural environment.

ELAN To Introduce New g!6.2 Software Update At ISE 2013

The world’s most sophisticated and user-friendly entertainment and control system, ELAN® g!, is about to become even more user- and integrator-friendly with the ISE 2013 market debut of the new ELAN g!6.2 Software Update which features support for international weather forecasting, a host of new drivers and ‘back end’ improvements to make it even easier for integrators to program and install. The formal introduction of the new software update will take place at ISE 2013 in Stand 1N80.

According to ELAN Home Systems Brand Manager Robert Ridenour, the announcement of the new software update, in addition to bringing critically important new functionality to market, comes less than one month after the company began delivering its g!6.0 software and underscores the speed of product enhancements that are now underway at ELAN.

“With sales of the ELAN g! System hitting critical mass around the world, we are dedicated to accelerating the pace of software development that will ensure that the ELAN g! system remains the easiest to install, use, and update entertainment and control system available from any manufacturer,” Ridenour said today.

According to Ridenour, the new ELAN g!6.2 Software Update features a host of new features including support for true global weather forecasting that will allow g! customers in every part of the world to access and display weather forecasts for their geographic area. What’s more, the g!6.2 software will allow dealers to program specific automation trigger events based on the local forecast, including, but not limited to, temperature, humidity, wind, and weather alerts for automation of things like motorized window shutters and shades, internal climate set points and distribution of email alerts to the homeowner, among others.

“Automating the home via weather information is something that few other manufacturers can accomplish and this adds a great new feature set for ELAN g! integrators,” commented Ridenour.

The new ELAN g!6.2 Software Update also provides support for a host of new drivers, including manufacturers like Rako Lighting, Cool Master, and Clypsal Lighting, among others. In addition, the new update delivers an improved dealer- programming interface that further shortens the time required to program a g! system.

“Over the last year the international appeal of the ELAN g! system has grown significantly, in no small part due to the introduction of KNX support, Chinese language support, support of international streaming content and Android support,” Ridenour stressed. “Today’s announcement will serve to strengthen g!’s international appeal that much further. We look forward to a very exciting ISE 2013.”
