AbelCine to Represent Hybrid’s Neon Trackless 3D Virtual Studio Solution in the New York Metro Area

AbelCine Sees Strong Market Demand for Neon

Montrouge, France – Hybrid, a leading provider of real-time graphics and robotic camera systems, has signed a dealer agreement with AbelCine—a leading supplier of camera equipment for film, digital cinema, broadcast, and new media—to market its Hybrid Neon trackless 3D virtual studio solution in the New York metropolitan area.

While AbelCine can sell Neon from any of its three locations—New York, Chicago, and Burbank—a Neon trackless virtual set system has been installed in its New York showroom to give prospective buyers an in-depth demonstration.

“Neon is a very exciting, enabling virtual studio solution because it allows customers to produce impressive, multi-camera videopresentations even when they’re working in a small space, with minimal crews and tight budgets,” said Andrew Shipsides, Director of Education for AbelCine.

“As a supplier of high-end camera equipment, we can now assist our clients in creating the look and feel of a sophisticated studio environment for a fraction the price. We’re already seeing strong customer demand, including in-house corporate video studios, webcasters, as well as government, educational, and news organizations.”

The Neon trackless virtual studio solution is a user-friendly “virtual studio in a box” that simply requires software running on a PC. Rather than camera tracking and calibration technology, the Neon 3D virtual studio solution performs visual magic—through real-time processing of video signals from fixed cameras—to give the illusion that the cameras are moving realistically in relation to the synthetic set.

Users can either use Neon’s set design tools, or import virtual sets created using 3D Max, Maya, Softimage, or other common modeling software. Despite its comparatively low price point (under $60,000), Neon delivers photo-realistic, anti-aliased sets typical of higher-end virtual set systems.

Besides native support for up to five live HD/SD camera inputs, Neon’s dual output allows it to render two sets simultaneously from a single PC. With its latest enhancements, Neon can now be controlled by Black Magic Design’s ATEM vision mixer, as well as by Hybrid’s new Ozone app for Android phones and tablets.

“For over two decades, AbelCine has been a highly respected and trusted source for acquisition gear for demanding applications ranging from corporate video to digital cinema,” said Olivier Cohen, CEO, Hybrid. “Our agreement with AbelCine promises to be mutually beneficial since they’re already marketing products and services to video professionals for whom this powerful-yet-affordable virtual studio is a natural fit.”

HARMAN’S New JBL HiQnet Performance Manager™ Version 1.5 Puts The Power Of One Platform, One Programming Interface And One Point Of Accountability In The Hands Of Live Sound System Professionals

NORTHRIDGE, California — HARMAN Professional today introduced JBL HiQnet Performance Manager™ version 1.5, a significant upgrade confirming the software application as the professional AV industry’s most comprehensive, uniform and useful live sound system configuration and control tool. This newest iteration adds support for more JBL loudspeakers, provides enhanced cardioid subwoofer array support, and broadens the capability to create custom, mixed-model racks of Crown amplifiers.

JBL HiQnet Performance Manager offers touring and performance-venue installation professionals a true workflow-based user experience for designing, deploying and controlling any configuration of HiQnet live performance systems. New to version 1.5 is support for JBL Professional’s VRX Series Constant Curvature loudspeakers, including a new generation of V5 DSP presets providing significant performance enhancements by leveraging the BSS Audio OMNIDRIVE HD™ linear phase FIR processing capability of Crown® I-Tech HD DSP power amplifiers. VRX V5 presets provide dramatic improvements in on-axis and power response due to the use of higher-order asymmetric filters, superior sound quality through the use of arbitrary coefficient FIR phase linearization, and the advanced system protection benefits of Crown’s LevelMAX™ limiter suite. In addition, the refined tonal balance consistency introduced in the new V5 presets makes the VRX Series compatible with VTX and VERTEC® Series V5 processing, allowing VRX enclosures to be effectively used as a fill system complement for tour sound and portable rental applications. The VRX Series V5 Preset Data includes bi-amp (2-way) and passive processing options for VRX928LA, VRX932LA-1 and VRX915M models including 2-way and 3-way options for use with VRX915S and VRX918S subwoofers.

JBL HiQnet Performance Manager also introduces JBL V5 Preset updates for VERTEC Series compact and subcompact models VT4887A/VT4887, VT4886 and VT4883. The new V5 preset release similarly enhances a number of performance attributes of JBL VERTEC VT4887A, VT4887 and VT4886 line array loudspeakers with cardioid subwoofer processing introduced for all VERTEC subwoofers including VT4883, VT4882, VT4881A, VT4880 and VT4880A models. JBL STX Series passive portable PA loudspeakers are also supported in Performance Manager version 1.5, providing an even greater set of sound design tools for complementary fill speaker purposes and medium- to small-format Front-of-House system design applications.

For enhanced configuration flexibility, custom racks can now be designed with mixed Crown amplifier models and can include any number of Crown amplifiers up to a total of eight. Additionally, a new amplifier sleep-mode utility that greatly reduces the system’s AC current draw when not in use can now be controlled through Performance Manager.

Commenting on the launch of JBL HiQnet Performance Manager 1.5, Paul Bauman, Senior Manager – Tour Sound for JBL Professional, noted, “Because Performance Manager is the direct result of customer input and objectives, we are now able to provide the most efficient and goal-oriented software application of its kind. With the embedded system intelligence upon which the Performance Manager user interface is based, it can benefit from ongoing exponential improvements in software technology. Today’s introduction features improvements in a wide array of product areas, backed by our continued commitment to training and support. As we make JBL tour sound products sound better with a new generation of V5 processing, and easier to use in the field via Performance Manager, we are providing our customers with a serious competitive edge while also enabling them to achieve the best possible results.”

The powerful new software can be evaluated free of charge in an offline state without the ability to connect to HiQnet devices. For communication with online devices a license key, available for purchase from the HiQnet website, is required.

TSS’ Trust in HARMAN’s JBL AWC82 Loudspeakers Pays Off at FedEx Memphis World Hub

NORTHRIDGE, California – Located at Memphis International Airport, the FedEx Express World Hub is the largest and oldest facility in the FedEx Express network, capable of sorting more than 1.5 million packages every day. This “super hub” is so big that it takes up approximately 832 acres—and a recent addition to the package sort facility covers 100,000 square feet of ground and is three levels high. When Memphis systems integrator Technical Support Systems (TSS) got the call to install the new building’s paging and life safety sound system, the company opted for the new HARMAN’s JBL AWC82 full-range all-weather loudspeaker.

Aside from the sheer size of the project, the main challenge TSS faced was that the paging system had to be heard over a noisy environment. It had to overcome an 85dB ambient noise floor in an echo-prone metal building with airplanes and trucks coming in and out, conveyors going all the time and 24-hour a day activity. The system would have to be intelligible at levels over 100dB.

In addition, FedEx management wanted to step up their audio system life safety standards and performance. “The area has had a rash of tornadoes recently and people are more aware of the importance of life safety systems than ever before,” noted Chip Benson of TSS. “Those old-style metal paging horns weren’t going to cut it.”

Benson knew that JBL had recently introduced the AWC82 and that on paper it looked like the ideal solution for its high volume capability, wide coverage pattern and full-range sound. “I had never heard the speaker, but design-wise it looked like exactly what was needed, so I trusted my gut and JBL’s reputation and went with it,” he said. “We were the first to ever take delivery of the AWC82, and delivery was tight—we needed those speakers immediately and they arrived on time.”

TSS installed a total of 100 AWC82 loudspeakers—24 on each of the three levels inside the sort facility and the rest on the outside of the building covering the Hub ramp where the planes arrive. Because of the JBL AWC82’s wide 120-degree coverage pattern, Benson was able to use fewer speakers spaced farther apart compared to previous installations. In addition, Benson and crew hung 20 JBL Control™ 65 P/T pendant speakers in the electrical, mechanical and maintenance shops and installed 40 JBL Control 24CT in-ceiling speakers in a number of offices. The speakers are powered by 13 Crown CTs 2000 amplifiers located in a rack in the head-end in the building’s phone data room.

The speakers and amps are on a 70-volt distributed audio system divided into five zones: sort facility, outside, offices, hub all-call and as Benson calls it, a “bat phone” emergency override. The audio system is tied into the FedEx World Hub’s VoIP phone and paging system, which is linked to all FedEx Hub locations in Memphis. The emergency paging system is connected to FedEx’s meteorology and security departments, which has priority in the event of an emergency.

Another reason the speakers had to deliver better performance is because the paging system is part of the VoIP network. VoIP provides better bandwidth and fidelity than older analog systems and TSS needed speakers that would complement the improved audio quality.

Benson’s gambit in choosing the JBL AWC82 paid off. “Of course, part of me was reluctant to go with the JBLs sight unseen. However, when we first turned on the system we wanted to test their ability to play full-range so we played loud rock music through them. The AWC82 blew away our expectations. In fact, these speakers could be used for foreground fill at a rock concert and I would have no qualms about using them that way.”

Clay Paky Sharpys and Chromlech Elidy LEDs Help Pink Reveal The Truth About Love

Pink’s critically acclaimed The Truth About Love world tour is underway with Clay Paky Sharpys and Chromlech Elidy LEDs accompanying the pop star on more than 130 show dates in North America, Europe and Australia. A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive distributor of Clay Paky lighting and Chromlech Elidy fixtures in North America.

The Truth About Love is Pink’s sixth concert tour and supports her eponymous sixth studio album. She’s been praised not only for her strong vocals but also for a Cirque du Soleil-style show filled with aerial acrobatics.

The tour features “a multi-screen design with integrated lighting in almost all scenic elements,” says Lighting Designer Baz Halpin with silentHOUSE. “The LED screens move during the show and the lighting moves with them. The placement of soft goods, physical scenic structures along with staircases and risers give the stage an asymmetric feeling.”

One hundred Sharpys are used “all over the set,” he reports. “We have them hung from moving GT truss, LED screens, custom ‘octo-truss’ and dotted on the floor in and around the set.”

Clay Paky Sharpy is a 189W moving beam light with an unprecedented brightness usually achievable only with far greater wattages. Weighing just 16 kg, Sharpy produces a perfectly parallel, laser-like beam, which is sharply defined and free of any halo or discoloration around the edges. It offers 14 different colors and 17 gobos to change the shape of the beam and create an array of spectacular mid-air effects. ?With its light weight and modest footprint, Sharpy is small enough to fit anywhere.

During the show 40 Elidy LEDs are used on the downstage truss as audience blinders and also for dynamic effects.

French-made Chromlech Elidy fixtures are the world’s first LED matrixes capable of projecting volumetric graphics. They combine high-output, calibrated, warm white LEDs with specific optics to generate extremely narrow beams that far exceed the intensity of LED screens. Elidy fixtures are also decorative items that can blend easily into scenery, backgrounds and décor by using a wide range of accessories, including unique new customized covers. These covers are attached either magnetically or as a snap-on and change the panels’ appearance to take on different colors and textures, including wood, metal, mirror, leather, stone and even grass.

“The Sharpys were selected for their small size, flexibility in placement and power, and they’re working very well,” Halpin says. “The Sharpys and the Elidy LEDs really deliver the powerful punch we were looking for.”

New NEXO STM Line Array and Yamaha Consoles Put Finishing Touch on Funshine Festival

TAMPA—More than 30 acts performed over five musical stages during Funshine Fest, held May 3-5 on the fairgrounds of Florida State in Tampa with an attendance of 20,000. Main stage artists included Train, the Smashing Pumpkins, REO Speedwagon, Styx, the Wallflowers, Cheap Trick, New Found Glory, Gary Allen, and Chris Carrabba of Dashboard Confessional.

ESI Audio of Tampa provided audio production, and this year, the new NEXO STM was used as the Live Nation Amphitheatre main stage line array. Company President, Erick Celeiro, functioned as FOH tech and Ozzy Giron acted as monitor tech on the rig. The system consisted of 15 M46 per side flown, 15 B112 per side flown, 32 S118 subs ground stacked, 10 NUAR racks that included 2x 4×4 NXAmps, and four M46s stacked on S118 subs for front fills. The entire system was running from front of house via the Dante network to the amp racks. A Yamaha PM5D was at the front of house mix position.

About the new STM system, Live Nation Amphitheatre production manager Andy Martinez said, ” I have seen many systems come in and out of here, and never had a system that rigs and flies so easy and sounds amazing.” And, REO front of house engineer, Neil Schaefer, added, “I had the pleasure of using the NEXO STM, and having had plenty of time in front of NEXO rigs over the years, my expectations were high. The STM PA is very tidy with clever rigging. Most important, it sounded very good. Smooth, powerful, and responsive; a very nice rig indeed!”

The NEXO STM Series (Scale Through Modularity) loudspeaker cabinets are the first of its kind on the market and combine the best of Alpha functionality with the technical innovation of GEO waveguide designs, delivering a powerful, flexible, and easy to use system. STM enables line array systems to scale up or down depending on event audience size, from 1,000 to 100,000 people. STM is unique in that it is the first vertical array system to offer scalable LF, making it easy to add extra bass cabinets for increased power and headroom, without introducing unwanted phase anomalies.

The outdoor Pavilion Stage used a NEXO GEO T line array along with a Yamaha CL5 at front of house used by mix engineer Jan Javier, with a CL1 at monitors for engineer Rob “DH” Durkee. “I felt very comfortable taking the CL out for the three-day festival with multiple bands, some with their own engineers, some without,” states Javier. The CL screen is like the difference between a regular VHS tape and a Blue-Ray DVD. I was using AES outs all the way to the amps. The system sounded great, the desk was very easy to use from the first day. The next day, I put the Premium Rack’s Portico Compressor in stereo in the left and right, and what a difference, just passing through the unit; smooth and warm become the words to best describe the sound. I used the DCAs, as I am used to mixing that way. Assignments are very easy, and finding my way around the desk is simple and very intuitive.”

“The guest engineers were amazed at the sound of the desk and how friendly it is, notes Javier. All who used it said they would tour with it.” Javier said they ran the stage rack onstage, and ran a cat6 snake out. He also said he noticed the pre-amps are much more responsive and a lot warmer out of the box. The Pavilion Stage hosted Lone Bellow, Tonic, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, and Dead Confederates. “They all loved the sound.”

The Concourse Stage housed a Yamaha CL1 at front of house with mixing by Bryan Rogers and Justin Lenards. An LS9 was used for monitors. Rogers said the CL1 was “like butter… smooth and creamy.” Lenards who mixed FOH and Monitors said “Love it, great little console.”
