Electrosonic Provides AV Systems for New Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex Entry Area

When Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex near Orlando, Florida, reconfigured the entry area into the park, Electrosonic was charged with providing the audio-visual design, infrastructure, equipment and programming for the background music, audio messaging and video signage for ticketing and guest relations services.

The project was the first from Electrosonic to implement QSC’s Q-Sys Digital Signal Processing (DSP) unit, which is billed as a powerful yet simple solution for audio processing, control and management. The Q-Sys CORE 3000 128×128 provides multi-channel audio playback park-wide.

“Q-Sys offers a number of advantages to the Visitor Complex,” according to Electrosonic commissioning engineer Tony Peugh. “With Q-Sys, you no longer need separate devices to play back the audio, eliminating the need for multiple CD players and solid-state audio playback machines, and minimizing the equipment footprint in the rack room.” In fact, Electrosonic combined two EER rooms into one smaller space.

“With this new configuration, 128 channels of audio are available, so you can tailor soundtracks to certain zones in the park by creating audio players in the software,” Peugh explains. Q-Sys communicates over a network with Q-LAN “so any device can share audio, functions or information. As the park expands and upgrades, more audio can be added just by providing a network connection. It’s very simple and reliable, and could very well be the next big thing.”

“The new system also has green credentials,” says Electrosonic project manager Gary Barnes. “It uses a lot less power than racks full of devices, so people concerned about LEED certification find Q-Sys a useful option.”

Electrosonic’s Design Consulting team was involved at the very start of the project, serving as the AV consultant to architects PGAV. Electrosonic’s Yiannis Cabolis was the designer of record.

Electrosonic outfitted the retail building, Voyagers, with 11 QSC speakers and a subwoofer connected to amplifiers in the EER. Twelve QSC speakers were also installed in the entry/exit turn-style area, another dozen in the self-service ticketing kiosk area, and four, including two subwoofers, in the fountain area. In all cases, the audio sources for the speakers came from Q-Sys.

Digital signage is prominent in several areas. The ticket stations and information area each feature two 32-inch high brightness, outdoor-rated LCD displays for graphics and information about tour packages and special events. Four QSC speakers and a paging station are included. The Welcome Center features an identical configuration and the ticket booths boast four LCD displays and eight speakers.

In all cases, the displays are fed by a video player located in the EER via fiber with HDMI/DVI video and serial control. Audio is fed from the player to channels of DSPs and amps. Media is controlled by a media server application running on a PC in the EER; the displays’ start and end of day routines are controlled by the system controller running on the Medialon Show Control Machine.

A covered, outdoor patio adjacent to the Rocket Garden featuring a new restaurant, the Rocket Garden Café, with counter service, has two 32-inch high brightness, outdoor-rated LCDs forming part of the scenic wall treatment. They display historical rocket and pop culture images from the 1960s.

Electrosonic was brought on board the project by Delaware North Companies Parks & Resorts, which operates Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex on behalf of NASA. Whiting-Turner Construction built the new entry area and worked closely with Electrosonic.

3G Productions Acquires MLA For Festivals, Touring & Installations


3G Productions Inc., a multifaceted audio company based in Las Vegas and Los Angeles, recently acquired a Martin Audio MLA system to provide greater sound control at electronic dance music festivals, and expand the company’s touring and installation capabilities.

Founded by Eli Stearns and Jay Curiel in 2004, 3G Productions has evolved over the years from live audio production to include full service sales and installation staffed with certified engineers and experienced installers.

3G’s extensive corporate clientele includes a vast array of Fortune 100 companies and very close relationships with the major hotel and casino groups along the Las Vegas Strip, among others. The company also specializes in touring and events such as the Beyond Wonderland Festival for INSOMNIAC at San Bernardino’s San Manuel Amphitheater, which served as the test drive for the system.

Always on the lookout for the latest technologies, 3G had been researching MLA since its inception. Response to the system from audio providers who’ve been using it was uniformly positive in terms of coverage, loudness, accuracy, and control, so 3G decided to initially acquire 32 MLA, 4 MLD (downfill), 24 MLX subs and 24 MLA Compact enclosures.

As it turns out, an intrinsic part of MLA’s appeal for 3G was based on its ability to control SPLs at festivals where noise is becoming an issue within the cities and communities where the events are held.

Asked about MLA’s trial run at the festival, 3G Vice President/Owner Jay Curiel, said, “The system was surprisingly easy to set up and our engineers were really happy with the way MLA performed. It did everything it’s supposed to do, especially in terms of controlling the sound. We were able to easily manage the SPL levels and cut off the coverage where we wanted while providing all the power and impact the audience expects. MLA passed with flying colors.”

Eli Stearns, President/Owner of 3G added, “We’re excited to be a partner in the prestigious MLA Network which includes so many leading audio companies. It’s great to be part of the next wave of innovation and technology, especially in terms of controlling SPL. Our primary application for MLA will be festivals and special events in city environments, but we expect the system to grow our touring market as well.”

RTW TM7 TOUCHMONITOR WINS 2013 iF PRODUCT DESIGN AWARD

International Forum Design Honors Plug-In Module Version of RTW’s TM7 TouchMonitor

COLOGNE, GERMANY, 22, APRIL, 2013 – RTW, a leading vendor of visual audio meters and monitoring devices for professional broadcast, production, post production and quality control, is happy to announce that the half 19-inch 20700VID plug-in module version of RTW’s TM7 TouchMonitor has won an iF Product Design Award. The iF (International Forum Design) jury, judging on behalf of a global organization dedicated to strengthening public awareness of design through awards, publications and exhibitions, chose the 19-inch model as a standout product in the audio and video category. This is the second iF Product Design Award for RTW. The company also won in 2011 for the TM7 and TM9 TouchMonitor series.

Known the world over as a “seal of outstanding design,” the iF product design award honors outstanding achievements in design. It covers all areas of product design and serves as a platform for design-relevant innovations around the globe. All of the 2013 iF product design award winners are available at www.ifdesign.de.

The half 19-inch 20700VID plug-in module version of RTW’s TM7 TouchMonitor is specifically designed for installation in waveform-monitor racks typically used in video studios, which are often difficult to fit. This version of the TM7 is technologically identical to the original TM7 model, providing ports for eight analog, eight digital (AES3 or AES3id) and 3G-SDI signals in different combinations (I/O options). Both versions feature a USB port that allows for preset import and export, license updates, and firmware upgrades. Featuring a 7-inch touch screen combined with unprecedented flexibility and modularity with an intuitive user interface, the TM7 is part of RTW’s innovative range of products that marks the next generation in professional audio-signal metering.

The operating concept behind the entire line of TouchMonitor audio meters, based on 16:9 touch-sensitive screens, is unique. It offers not only a built-in online help function, but also allows for monitoring separate signal groups and using multiple instruments at the same time. This way, up to 16 analog or digital signals (with 3G-SDI interface up to 32) can all be displayed. In addition, the clear-cut surface layout of the product’s housing gives it a distinctive look, which can be consistently transferred to other RTW ranges of products and also allows for variations.

“We are very proud that the International Forum Design has once again chosen RTW, this time for the design of the half 19-inch plug-in module version of our TM7 TouchMonitor,” says Andreas Tweitmann, CEO, RTW. “RTW is committed to providing the professional audio industry with the solutions it needs: devices that are both technologically advanced and well-designed. A lot of time and effort went into the design of this version of our TM7 and we are very proud our efforts have been recognized.”

Bose® RoomMatch® Loudspeakers and PowerMatch® Amplifiers Bring a Universe of Sound to Calgary’s TELUS Spark – the New Science Centre

Bose® systems are used for multiple sound systems at the $160-million new Science Centre

Framingham, Massachusetts, April 15, 2013 – When visitors come to the new TELUS Spark Science Centre (formerly the TELUS World of Science) in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, they’ll not only be awed by the sights inside the 153,000-square-foot facility, with its four exhibit galleries and 164-seat Presentation Theatre, but they’ll also be thrilled by the sounds, thanks to several systems that utilize RoomMatch® loudspeakers and PowerMatch® amplifiers from Bose® Professional Systems Division. Faced with a new space that was visually stunning but acoustically problematic due to the extensive use of hard, reflective surfaces such as glass and wood, TELUS Spark management knew they needed a special solution – one that could offer a high degree of intelligibility yet at the same time be as unobtrusive as possible to maintain the new facility’s sleek visuals. Once Martin Topp, Western Canada Manager for Bose Professional Systems, put Bose integrator Gerry Adams, of Calgary-based Adams Technologies, together with the TELUS technical management team, the solutions quickly became clear.

Adams took the TELUS team to the first public demonstration of the Bose RoomMatch system, held at the 2011 InfoComm Show in Orlando. They were impressed enough to offer the project to Adams and Bose on the spot. In fact, the system’s performance was so remarkable that the plan expanded from merely the creation of sound systems for the Presentation Theatre and the facility’s lower atrium (which would be used for day-to-day paging and other background use), to also duplicating the Theatre’s planned sound system for a larger reinforcement package in the atrium, to be deployed for special events.

The atrium’s system consists of left and right RoomMatch arrays, which are highly steerable, allowing the engineers to direct sound to the walls that had acoustical treatment, thus maximizing intelligibility. The system also includes Bose Panaray® MA12EX full-range modular line array loudspeakers, 18 of which were double-stacked in nine offset locations with a 502®B subwoofer below each stack. The system is driven by three PowerMatch PM8500N networkable amplifiers, each with 500 watts for each of its eight channels. A Bose ControlSpace® ESP-88 engineered sound processor is used for system DSP, with control provided by a Bose CC-64 control center.

The event sound system consists of five RoomMatch array modules and eight RMS215 subwoofers that are loaded onto carts and wheeled in when needed. The system is driven by seven four-kilowatt PM8500N amplifiers. The Presentation Theatre also has a pair of arrays, made up of three RoomMatch loudspeakers and two RMS215 subs per side, as well as a complement of 402® Series II and FreeSpace® DS 100SE speakers and Panaray modular MB4 subs mounted as fills.

This gives the Theatre full 6.1 surround capability. “Each side has a stack of five speakers and they blend so well that as you walk from the front to the back it’s very hard to distinguish where you’re hearing the sound from one box to the next. The sound is not bouncing off everywhere, it’s coming direct, and that makes for a really clean sound,” stated Dennis Cheng, A/V Manager, TELUS Spark, the New Science Centre. Speaking about the audience’s response, Barry Crean, VP Operations, TELUS Spark, the New Science Centre, stated, “They love the sound, they love the atmosphere that it provides in here.” Cheng adds, “The level of engagement from the audience is just overwhelming.”

Student Life Ministry Brings High Energy to Be Last Conference with PixelFLEX LED Curtain Video Wall

Student Life, an inter-denominational ministry offering Gospel-centered, high energy summer camps and youth conferences, has taken PixelFLEX’s ultra-flexible and lightweight LED curtain video wall on the road during its Be Last Conference celebrating Mark 9:35: If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.

On the tour, Student Life uses 16 PixelFLEX panels across the stage as an accent to the production’s main 17′ projection screen. The PixelFLEX panels run a variety of content throughout the show, including a series of flags from various countries, to provide different looks and feels on stage. For organizers of Student Life’s Be Last Conference, ease of use and set-up are the primary benefits to using the PixelFLEX solution.

“They are extremely easy to use,” said Jake Brantley, producer for Student Life. “Being able to change the look and feel of our stage at the drop of a hat is invaluable. When we have more of an upbeat sound on stage, we can use fast moving graphics and bright colors to add energy. If we’re trying to create a more serious tone, we can add darker blues and slower motion graphics without having to change the backdrops. All of this can be done simply with a click of a button.”

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 is critical to Brantley and his team during the Be Last Conference – both during and after the performance.

“With the way we’re using the LED panels on stage, having the ability to shape the panels as we need to is crucial – in one or two places we use them to create a nice arch or 90 degree bend around a corner,” Brantley stated. “On top of that, it only takes two people to load the panels in and out before and after the show, which means we can be done with set up and tear down more quickly. Finally, the fact that you can fold and store the panels in travel cases is a tremendous cost saver for a small tour like ours.”

Videos and images can be sent to PixelFLEX’s screens using any computer with a DVI-D connection. Each typical screen panel is approximately 8×4, but modifications can be made easily to meet specific needs of the consumer – panels can be attached together with PixelFLEX’s proprietary quicklock system.

“PixelFLEX’s panels give us a ton of versatility with regard to the custom content we’re able to incorporate into the tour,” Brantley remarked. “We have an unlimited amount of options as to what our stage can look like and that is cool.”

HARMAN’s Soundcraft Si Expression 3 Takes Center Stage at The Parker Playhouse

FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida – Parker Playhouse first opened its doors in 1967 and has played an important role for performing arts in the Fort Lauderdale community ever since. The performance venue, now managed by Broward Center for Performing Arts, fully seats 1,168 and hosts concerts, plays, musicals, and other events. Anton Foresta, Head Audio Engineer for Parker Playhouse and owner of Anton F. Audio Design, recently purchased a HARMAN Soundcraft Si Expression 3 digital mixer for use at Parker Playhouse, as well as other one-off events.

Parker Playhouse hosts various productions for the Fort Lauderdale area and needed a digital mixer that would fit its needs. “We host everything from a single mic production, like a comedian, to a full band. The Parker Playhouse just recently hosted comedian Jim Breuer and Alan Parsons before that,” said Foresta, who is also a touring FOH engineer for “Arrival—The Music of ABBA, Direct From Sweden.”

Foresta required a console offering user-friendliness and excellent sound quality both for personal use and at the Parker Playhouse. “I wanted a small-format console that I could have for myself. I came across info on the Si Expression 3 online and as soon as I read about it, I knew that was what I wanted,” said Foresta. “I have always been a Soundcraft fan. Their consoles provide tremendous ease of use, and even during the transition to digital they kept the consoles simple, especially with their Si Series.”

Since he began using the Si Expression 3, Foresta has appreciated its performance and unique features. “Everything has been solid. I like the I/O, the 32 inputs and 16 outputs. Having a graphic EQ on every single output is an advantage that’s unique to this board as well,” said Foresta.

“At this price for a Soundcraft console, nothing compares,” Foresta concluded. “The preamps on the expression sound fantastic. I’ve used all types of consoles and this is the best-sounding console I’ve found in the small-format category.”

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.

Technomad Brings Professional Sound to Cowboy Fellowship Arena

Venue attached to worship facility injects excitement into live events with new advanced audio loudspeakers and subwoofers

BOSTON, April 22, 2013 — The Cowboy Fellowship Church in southern Texas is a unique worship facility that preaches evangelism, discipleship and service — with an adjoining 2800-seat live event venue on campus. The church hosts a variety of events in the venue, from all-day rodeos and bull-riding clinics to musical performances.

The venue opened in 2012 without a professional sound system, using standard stage equipment to produce and amplify audio. The church soon hired Buster Burch as facilities administrator, who specified and installed an advanced audio system to cover the entire arena in a more consistent manner. Burch researched various options and purchased a Technomad Turnkey PA System to ensure exceptional audio quality and long-term durability in the local environment. The complete system included four loudspeakers and four subwoofers along with a complete audio headend — an unusual combination.

“I wanted to put together a system that looked good, sounded good and would last,” said Burch. “Our philosophy is that it’s worth putting extra money into something that we know will last a long time. This system isn’t just for us; it’s for future generations.”

The system is unusual in that each Technomad Berlin loudspeaker, mounted 20 feet off the ground, is accompanied by a Technomad Oslo subwoofer mounted 10 feet directly below. The Berlin and the Oslo are the most powerful loudspeaker and subwoofer models in the company’s portfolio.

“I had a real desire for bass in this venue, as bass is what suffers the most when you work outside,” said Burch. “If I am showing a video of a fireworks display, I want everyone in the stands to hear and feel that boom. The Oslo gives me exactly what we needed out of the bass at the low end. I’m very pleased.”

Burch adds that the Berlins produce plenty of power, with intelligible voice and full-range musical reproduction. He notes that the wide dispersion ensures that he can walk the entire length and width of the arena without hitting a dull spot.

“We’ve had several events, and the audience feedback is that the audio is crisp and clear and not overly loud,” said Burch. “I’ve had people tell me that they don’t hear the normal delay and bounceback common in other arenas. The system works together as one giant loudspeaker to deliver audio across the entire bleachers. I have true high-end and plenty of low-end and mid response. And the sound envelope per speaker is incredibly large.”

Typical venue events include team ropings, steer ropings, bull riding clinics, and ranch rodeos featuring men and women. Birch adds that the church plans to hold more live concerts moving forward, as well as special events such as Christmas services.

This means that the church also needed a durable sound system to ensure longevity. Burch evaluated the entire facility upon joining the staff, and quickly realized that weatherproof equipment was required. A roof provided coverage overhead, but open air surrounding the venue raised concerns. The requisite combination of durability and high quality audio ultimately led him to Technomad.

“We’re about 30 miles south of San Antonio in the town of Jourdanton, and we get a lot of dust and wind as well as some cold and condensation,” said Burch. “I like how the drain holes at the bottom of the cabinets expel condensation to keep them dry. I also used Technomad’s new stainless steel mounts, which are very strong and sturdy in addition to being weatherproof. They lock in really well and give us flexibility to accurately adjust the angle and direction of each loudspeaker.”

Burch purchased the Turnkey PA System from ProAudio.com of Grand Prairie, Texas. The complete system included a pre-wired, protective equipment rack with an audio amplifier, six-channel mixer and three microphones; as well as all required cables and connectors to expedite installation. Burch added a Mackie wireless control board for remote audio adjustments, as well as Sennheiser wireless equipment.

ABOUT TECHNOMAD
Technomad LLC, founded in 1995, designs and manufactures loudspeaker systems for the professional audio and security/military technology industries. The company invented the first reliable full-range weatherproof loudspeaker and now offers nine models ranging in power from 60-watt loudspeakers to 1250-watt subwoofers — most available in Turnkey PA System packages featuring amplifiers, mixers and other signal processing equipment in pre-wired racks.
