Seven key executive personnel have been brought on board to support Sohonet’s rapid expansion into new, global territories and to help develop a range of new services that will ultimately enable media customers to better manage the increasing volumes of digital content they have to deal with.

Sohonet’s recent key hires include a new Director of Product Management, Director of Sales (EMEA), Director of Sales (North America), Director of Global Operations, East Coast Sales Executive, a West Coast Sales Executive and a new CFO.

David Scammell, Sohonet’s CEO, said, “This is going to be a very exciting year for Sohonet and we are delighted to welcome a number of talented new faces to help ramp up our presence and service offerings across the globe.

Sohonet’s first quarter 2013 new hires include the following industry professionals:

Rupert Mussen replaces Clare Wadd, who has taken a role in the charity sector, as Chief Financial Officer. Rupert has extensive experience of working with technology companies and is the perfect candidate to help steer Sohonet through its rapid growth program.

Ben is a respected thought leader within the film, broadcast and games industries and has a tremendous track record in developing compelling product propositions for the production and post-production sectors.

Rhodri Evans has come on board as Director of Global Operations to ensure the effective delivery of Sohonet’s growth plans.

In response to extensive customer feedback, Sohonet has also improved its award-winning File-Runner service to make it easier to connect to both Sohonet Media Network (SMN), as well as off-net (non SMN) users.

Digital Nirvana to Present at the NAB Show Enterprise Computing PIT

Session will focus on advanced broadcast monitoring for today’s video delivery ecosystems

Newark, CA – Digital Nirvana announces plans to speak at the 2013 NAB Show’s Enterprise Computing PIT, a destination pavilion on the show floor designed to provide attendees with an intimate meeting place to learn about new tools playing an ever-expanding role in the world of media and entertainment. The presentation will focus on advanced monitoring for the broadcast infrastructure and will take place on Monday, April 8 at 3:45 pm.

At the NAB Show, which runs April 8-11, the Enterprise Computing PIT will be located at Booth N6621 in the Las Vegas Convention Center. During the conference, Digital Nirvana will exhibit its broadcast suite of content repurposing and monitoring solutions, including its latest version of Monitor IQ, in Booth N3434.

Digital Nirvana’s CEO, Hiren Hindocha, will co-present with Fereidoon Khosravi, Senior Vice President of Business Development, Venera Technologies. The two companies formed a strategic partnership last year that allows Digital Nirvana to leverage Venera’s quality control and test and measurement components with Digital Nirvana’s flagship Monitor IQ broadcast monitoring solution.

Hindocha and Khosravi will discuss how monitoring systems must mirror the increasing sophistication of the broadcast plants in which they reside. And they will address why high-quality monitoring and analyzing of digital video and audio signals is so important for broadcasters today. No longer should multiple operators have to run between disparate computers to track different broadcast parameters. The ability to cross reference all on-site and off-site systems within an enterprise, harvest metadata, drill down and take action on any issue – all from one central user interface – is what’s expected from a monitoring system today.

Among broadcasters increasingly complex set of monitoring requirements: delivery to more channels, creating a cohesive and revenue-generating mobile and online platform, and providing signals that comply with closed captioning and loudness regulations.

The most advanced monitoring systems can combine signal-monitoring, loudness monitoring, aircheck-logging, archiving, diagnostics/QC, and competitive analysis in one scalable, networked solution.

“Speaking about advanced broadcast monitoring in the context of the larger video delivery ecosystem is a great opportunity for us,” said Hiren Hindocha, president and CEO of Digital Nirvana. “At Digital Nirvana, our focus is to offer our clients an efficient broadcast monitoring system that simplifies their monitoring workflow, helps to reduce operational costs, and easily adapts to evolving broadcast environments. I’m looking forward to being a part of this presentation in NAB Enterprise Computing PIT.”

Andrea Perry of Musical Duo Kaliyo Relies On HARMAN’s Lexicon PCM Native Reverb Bundle

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – For over 15 years Andrea Perry has had a varied musical career, she’s contributed the music for dozens of video games, TV shows, movies and more. She currently runs Andrea Perry Productions, which has released three solo albums (with a fourth in the making) and along with Sarah Sharp is one half of indie pop music duo Kaliyo, whose songs have been licensed worldwide for TV, commercials and Internet marketing videos. After using countless other reverb software programs Perry was looking for something new and ultimately discovered HARMAN’s Lexicon PCM Native Reverb Bundle.

“I was using other reverb software for a while but found myself looking for a change,” said Perry, “so I started reading reviews and doing research on various music and recording websites. “The Lexicon PCM Native Reverb Bundle seemed to be highly respected by a lot of people doing a lot of different styles of music. I downloaded the demo version and fell in love with it right away when I heard it on Sarah’s voice. When the demo expired, the tracks I had used the PCM Native Reverb Bundle plug-ins on suddenly sounded very dull! It didn’t take long before I felt like I couldn’t function without the plug-ins.”

Although the PCM Native Reverb Bundle offers 7 exclusive Lexicon reverbs and effects and hundreds of studio presets, Perry finds herself drawn to the Vintage Plate and Hall settings the most. “I don’t know how to elaborate on this except to say that I just really like the way the Lexicon plug-ins improve the tracks, especially vocals, percussion and acoustic guitars. But when you come down to it, the plug-ins flatter pretty much everything.”

“The Lexicon reverbs add dimension and sound smooth and lush. They just make things sound better. The presets are also very helpful as starting points towards getting the sounds I want as I consider myself a non-technical person. If I’m working on a vocal, for example, I’ll grab a vintage plate reverb preset and then tweak that. If I had to start from nothing I’d be lost.”

“We are very lucky to work with artists of Andrea’s talent,” stated Noel Larson Market Manager for Recording, Tour and Portable PA at HARMAN Signal Processing. “Her ability to seamlessly cross from popular to commercial works with the same plug-ins shows the power of our reverbs. She exemplifies our brand motto, When you hear music, you hear Lexicon.”

Perry continues to collaborate with Sarah Sharp in Kaliyo and is currently working on her fourth solo album, “Four,” doing production work for 21-year-old singer/songwriter Ariel Abshire and composing for more commercials and videos. Through it all, Perry notes there’s one constant in her variegated musical career: “I now use the Lexicon PCM Native Reverb Bundle on every session.”

HARMAN’s Crown Audio Amplifiers Power the Public Address/Life Safety System In Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station

POINT LEPREAU, New Brunswick — The Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station, a power plant located near New Brunswick, Canada, recently underwent a complete audio upgrade featuring HARMAN’s Crown CTs Series Amplifiers. Point Lepreau, which began operating in 1983, has been redesigned to meet all current nuclear facility standards including its public address and life safety systems.

“Since 9/11, much closer attention has been paid to life safety systems,” said Steve O’Rourke, Audio Division Manager of Backman Vidcom, the Halifax, Nova Scotia integrator responsible for installing the plant-wide public address system. “Along with security, fire protection and rescue systems, the PA system has an extremely important role in plant safety. People need to be able to hear announcements and alerts clearly – it can be a matter of life and death in an emergency situation.”

The Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station system includes 18 Crown CTs Series CTs 8200USP/CN power amplifiers with CobraNet™ networking cards and 32 Crown CTs 2000 amps with PIP3 card connectivity. “This gives us a total of 208 channels and 92,800 watts of power,” O’Rourke noted. “We needed the networking capability the Crown amps provide because we designed the installation to be a completely self-monitoring system.”

Since the previous PA was 30 years old it needed to be completely replaced. “This gave us the opportunity to take advantage of the latest advancements in amplifier and speaker design and system control. What the plant needed was a ‘Voice of God’ PA that could reliably deliver pages all day long and could be clearly heard for any alert and emergency situations that might occur. It had to be intelligible even over the adverse noise conditions that occur in a large industrial complex,” O’Rourke stated.

Equally important, the system absolutely had to keep functioning during emergency situations and had to be CSA (Canadian Standards Association) certified and assembled to nuclear-grade standards. For these reasons O’Rourke only used most reliable components and built in a level of redundancy so that the PA would keep working even if parts of it incurred physical damage.

“The Crown amplifiers proved ideal for this unique situation because of their networking, internal processing and status reporting capabilities. We also chose them for their reliability, limited current draw and small thermal footprint,” added O’Rourke. “The flexibility of the Crown amps was key for making this installation work. I can’t imagine having undertaken this project with any other amplifier.”

“Everything in this installation had to be the best possible – even the quality of the equipment racks had to be literally nuclear-grade – and that is why there was no question about us using anything but Crown amplifiers,” O’Rourke concluded.

SKYE’s The Limit For Martin Audio

Jakarta, Indonesia––The spectacular SKYE Bar & Restaurant in Jakarta is the latest venue to be opened by the Ismaya Group. Located on the 56th floor of the 754 foot-high Menara BCA building, SKYE’s main attraction is a stupendous view over the city’s skyline.

The owners needed high-end professional audio products for its fashionable clientele, and turned to the pro division of P.T. Citra Intirama, Martin Audio’s distributors in Indonesia.

The distributor already had a relationship with the club’s owners, who have been using Martin Audio systems for many of their group restaurants and clubs over the years. They had no hesitation in recommending a similar solution to equip the brand new rooftop bar, restaurant and lounge, as well as the outdoor chill out area within the exclusive operation.

The 800-capacity venue combines a mixture of Martin Audio’s compact architectural AQ5s and EM150 for the lounge area; C10.1R two-way high performance ceiling speakers for the restaurant area; stylish, surface-mount C115s for the VIP area, and C4.8T and C6.8T ceiling speakers for restrooms and corridors linking the indoor and outdoor area.

As a result, this carefully-considered solution ensures well-balanced background music coverage throughout augmented via two Martin Audio Blackline F15+ and S18+s, which are specially installed for weekend DJ events.

The result is another successful venture for the Ismaya Group, and a significant landmark on the Indonesian club scene.
