Wyrestorm’s Modular MX-PP-POH Delivers a Totally Custom-Built HDBaseT Matrix Solution

With its completely customizable design, RS-232 routing capabilities, integrated Power over HDBaseT and near-limitless selection of input configurations, Wyrestorm’s MX-PP-POH is the company’s most flexible, scalable, fully featured HDBT matrix yet.

Memphis, TN – June 5, 2013Wyrestorm, a global manufacturer that specializes in the design and development of innovative HD distribution products, takes truly custom AV distribution to the next level and new price point with the introduction of the MX-PP-POH Pro Plus Matrix, a totally modular, built-to-order addition to Wyrestorm’s popular Pro-Plus line of HDBaseT™ matrices, that is compatible with all leading control systems. The MX-PP-POH (power over HDBaseT) provides commercial and custom residential system integrators with the utmost in switching and installation flexibility thanks to its choice of eight or 16 fully customizable expansion bays, RS-232 control signal routing, and Power over HDBaseT capabilities—all backed by an extensive nationwide dealer training program to start in August 2013.

Building on the HDBaseT foundation at the heart of Wyrestorm’s Pro-Plus line, the MX-PP-POH supplies HD video, high-resolution audio, RS-232 and IR, as well as low voltage power via a single Cat5e/6 cable (removing the need for power supplies for each display receiving device), making it more convenient than ever before for installers to deliver feature-rich multimedia distribution systems with rock-solid reliability, enhanced flexibility, and the utmost in scalability.

Starting with a clean, 8 module compact chassis that measures only two rack units high or a 16 module chassis at three rack units high, dealers will be able to take advantage of Wyrestorm’s new, intuitive online web widget to configure the MX-PP-POH with a near-limitless combination of both analog and digital transmission cards, custom-tailored for both residential and PRO AV applications. Wyrestorm provides design ideas and concepts so integrators can easily identify configurations to meet various applications – as a boardroom presentation switcher, enhanced HDBT splitter, or a full HD video and audio distribution solution for a large scale entertainment and commercial display systems.

Examples of the numerous modular transmission card configurations include:

• An HDMI input card with HDBT 70m output (with embedded RS232 transmission), a mirror HDMI output, IR transmission, and Power over HDBaseT —the perfect choice for use with AV receivers or activating a slave outputs by using a Wyrestorm extender product. This card provides 16 or 32 active outputs depending on chassis selection.

• A DVI input card, with HDBT 70m output (with embedded RS232 transmission), IR transmission, and Power over HDBaseT—ideal for professional AV applications that don’t require audio distribution.

• An analog audio input card with HDBT 70m output (with RS232 transmission), a mirror HDMI output, IR transmission, and Power over HDBaseT —perfect for adding audio-only devices such as iPod docks, audio zone players, and media servers to your AV distribution system removing the need to run duplicated digital/analog audio products

• A VGA plus stereo audio input card with, supporting resolutions from 640×480 up to WUXGA 1920×1200.

• And non-switching HDMI Pass Thru card with HDBT 70m output (with RS232 transmission), IR transmission, and Power over HDBaseT for use with cascading matrix devices making systems such as 16×32, 16×48. This card will also be used for HD to IP wireless streaming video preview function which is a feature within the new Enado user interface due for release later this year.

• A simultaneous SPDIF Optical Out/Stereo Audio Output card HDBT 70m output (with RS232 transmission), IR transmission, and Power over HDBaseT—designed to provide local AV receivers or traditional multi-room amplifiers with digital or analog audio.

Owing to the MX-PP-POH’s modular design, on-site changes or updates will be easier than ever before, and dealers will have the flexibility to craft truly custom matrices, in configurations as diverse as 3×8, 4×8, 6×8, 8×12, 6×14, 12×16, 10×32 or any permutation in between. Add Wyrestorm’s AMP-001-010 HDBaseT Amplifier for zone amplification and video output, and you have a self-contained, one-brand video and audio distribution solution with full HD capabilities, with EDID management, HDCP compliance and complete control of all connected devices.

All MX-PP-POH orders will be assembled to the custom specifications of dealers in US and EU, with local delivery within 10 days of order, with optional custom delivery timing. Pricing of each unit will be dependent upon the dealer’s custom specifications. In addition, Wyrestorm’s line of non POH Pro Plus matrices, MX0404-PP, MX0606-PP, MX0808-PP and MX0808-PP-AUD, will continue at a new lower price point which will open HDBaseT stability to all dealers & projects regardless of project size or budget.

Revolution Nightclub Upgrades With Martin Audio

Revolution is one of the largest and most successful dance/nightclubs in Waterloo, Southern Ontario, Canada. The city has become a leading technology hub of North America largely because well-known high-tech brands such as Blackberry, Sybase, Google, Oracle, Intel, McAfee, NCR Corporation, Electronic Arts and Agfa either grew to prominence or are headquartered there.

Owned by Gary Stewart and his wife Sue, Revolution has been around in its current incarnation since 1996. The club is open Friday and Saturday and shares a 10,000 square foot building with Flying Dog Restaurant, a popular upscale casual dining emporium that offers DJ-driven entertainment on weekends.

Asked about the club’s longevity, Stewart answers, “We’re fortunate to have three universities that provide us with a new group of customers every September, not to mention all those tech companies.

“We’ve been bobbing and weaving over the years, always on the move to stay ahead of changing styles and demands of the market,” Stewart continues. “This year, we decided on a complete audio, video and lighting system upgrade because it was time for a change.”

Although Revolution occasionally features international DJs such as Avicii and Hardwell, Stewart insists the club “isn’t guest DJ driven. We have always appealed to the masses. We’ve managed to fill 1600 seats every weekend for over 20 years by playing what the customer wants and appealing to the ladies.

“In terms of music program, we offer more variety because our guests don’t want to be hammered by a straight EDM program five or six hours a night. They still want Top 40 material and a more accessible pop/dance format to break things up. Most of the pop music on the radio has an EDM slant from a production standpoint anyway. So eventually it all falls into place and works for us on the dance floor.”

In addition to a massive dance floor, Revolution has The Purple Room and a number of VIP suites to accommodate the special needs of its guests. As Stewart explains, “we offer first class furnishings with a degree of privacy, personal service and a feeling of being special when you step into one of our VIP areas, even if you’re not a famous celebrity.

“The Purple Room is our EDM space. We’ve been programming house DJs there for over 15 years. This space offers the more specific EDM fan a place to hear their favorite beats without having to go to a different club. It’s small and intimate with a crushing Martin PA in a room that holds up to 130 customers while total capacity for the club is 1590.”

Revolution’s recent audio, video and lighting system upgrade represents a significant investment consistent with Stewart’s commitment to keep the club at the forefront of technology. As he points out, “Besides the new audio install which features the latest Martin Audio products, we’ve put in 92 Microh LED video panels with 11 screens running around the perimeter of the dance floor and three screens behind the reconstructed DJ booth that is now the featured attraction since the DJ is the rock star.”

In addition to the LED panels, Revolution’s new lighting system consists of an Arkaos Media Master stage server; 24 Elation Design Spot pro 250s; six Martin Professional Atomic 3000DMX strobes; two Titan RBG 6 watt lasers, 60 Microh LED RGBW Max Zoom quad wash lights; a Livid OHM 64 MIDI controller; two Martin Professional/Jem K1 hazers and a 23” LCD touch screen monitor.

Revolution’s current audio upgrade features a new Martin Audio speaker system consisting of eight Blackline H3H+ three-way Hybrid system enclosures, ten WSXa subwoofers, DX2 speaker processing and MA5.2K and MA9.6K power amplifiers. This powerful new setup replaces an older Martin Audio system at a cost of just under $200,000.

Asked about his choices for audio, Stewart responds, “We’d already owned Martin Audio gear for over 10 years, so this was a natural choice for an upgrade.

“Basically, we wanted a bigger, fuller, louder sound. 15 years ago we were top of the heap and state-of-the-art, and you can quickly fall backwards in the ranks if you don’t keep changing.

“Some club owners are usually content to ‘make do,’ but we definitely wanted to make an impact and knew we had to modernize. No complaints about Martin Audio because they are top end all the way. The new amps are state of the art. I don’t know if there’s anything better than what we’re using for power, lightness, reliability and price because everything’s changed so much.

“We’ve gone to a much larger box with the H3H+’s that are mounted on flying points in the ceiling. They give us a whole lot more headroom, which makes it more fun for the customers and the DJs. The 10 WSXa sub woofers are ground-stacked in a line in front of the DJ booth and they provide more than enough low end.”

The updated system also includes new Pioneer CDJ Nexus 2000 and 900 Multi players with new technology that allows DJs to use USB, data cards and Wi-Fi in addition to CDs.

Asked how he feels about the new Martin Audio system, Stewart concludes, “We’re absolutely thrilled with the increased SPL, musicality and smoothness of coverage. It’s given us big smiles and big wow. We did a promotional event with one of the beer companies mostly attended by industry guests and the other club owners in town walked in and their jaws dropped. The room, the changes and the PA system blew them away. They were going on and on like, ‘Oh My God, Oh My God, it sounds so great,’ which is nice to hear from your competition and your peers.”

Christie Helps Engage Participants at T.I.N.Y – An Interactive Multimedia Public Art Installation by Artist Garson Yu at New York’s Pier 57

At the Marina at Pier 57, Christie® M-Series HD projectors are helping visitors “travel” through New York City by creating a multi-sensory experience for The Interactive New York (T.I.N.Y) exhibition, an interactive multimedia art installation by video artist Garson Yu. The exhibit is inspired by New York City as a living organism, and will let visitors interact with video and sound reminiscent of traveling in the city.

The Interactive New York (T.I.N.Y.) Exhibit at Pier 57


The interim art space, created at the entryway to Pier 57, features a “magic carpet” sculptural installation of 36 hanging shipping containers designed by Madrid-based architecture firm CH+QS Arquitectos. Eight Christie HD10K-M 1080 HD 3-chip DLP® projectors create a special interactive experience within the space, projecting moving images onto the containers of everyday life in New York, including subway scenes and scenes of childhood memories. Displayed in brilliant HD and using the projectors’ embedded warping, blending and color matching capabilities, the images help to simulate a virtual subway train – with visitors traveling from end to end, passing through the containers as one would walk through the different cars of the train. There is an ambient audio track built around the rhythmic rumble of a subway train and layered with city sounds. Walking further into the installation, visitors become participants, and are encouraged to yell and make different vocal sounds into microphones that trigger motion of the visuals.

“We are thrilled that the versatility, brightness, and interactive qualities of the Christie M- Series projectors have provided Garson Yu with an ideal medium for expressing and realizing his artistic vision,” said Kathryn Cress, vice president of global and corporate marketing for Christie. “His exhibit has brought to life a unique and creative idea that can now be enjoyed by many, with each visitor engaging with the experience in their own personal way.”

Garson Yu said, “As a student, I always wanted to design children’s playgrounds, and this is an opportunity to create something almost like an interactive carnival for families and people of all ages to come play and have fun. My hope is for this to evoke the richness of a full range of memories and emotions. I’m bringing the kind of thinking behind the film projects that I work on in Hollywood, and the Christie projectors are essential to helping me create an immersive, interactive experience that affects everyone based on their personal memories. New York is an important part of my artistic life, and it is great to come back here with this show.”

The Christie HD10K-M is a flexible, high performance 3-chip 1080 HD DLP® digital projector featuring high efficiency and brightness, drawing a maximum power of 1320W. Embedded warping, blending and color matching, along with built-in portrait capabilities provide ideal installation flexibility.

Barix and DMD2 Develop In-Store Audio Solution for Remodeled Victorinox Retail Stores

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND, June 5, 2013 — Leading corporate music provider DMD2 of Switzerland is bringing fresh energy to newly remodeled Victorinox retail stores on two continents using IP-based in-store media solutions from Barix. The Barix devices reliably play out a unique and exciting DMD2-programmed music mix that meets the retail giant’s new branding requirements.

DMD2, which also handles Barix device configuration, service monitoring and music licensing, chose Barix Exstreamer IP audio decoders for playout due to their high audio quality and reliability. DMD2 delivers the program as a single stream across seven stores in Europe and five in Hong Kong.

Habegger AG, a Swiss event and corporate architecture supplier, engaged with DMD2 to develop an in-store music concept that matched the new Victorinox store designs. The channel development phase gave birth to the “Victorinox music mix,” constantly updated with new releases as part of an eclectic music mix from the 70s to the early 2000s.

This was a new concept to the Victorinox stores as many used CD players, FM tuners or iPods to play music. DMD2 considered Barix an ideal partner to transition the stores to IP audio delivery, as many of the tools to support the new stream were well suited for Barix hardware. The music originates from datacenters in Bern, Switzerland and is delivered to Barix Exstreamer devices in each store as 64kb/s mp3 streams, with expectations to add AAC+ streams moving forward.

“We’ll eventually switch to AAC+ 48kbps encoding to increase stream stability for retail stores in the more remote areas,” said Alexander dal Farra, owner and president of DMD2. “The flexibility of Barix devices is a big benefit in this regard, as the Exstreamer offers both MP3 and AAC+ decoding functionality. This makes migration to AAC+ an easy task.”

With stores in such cities as Zurich, Dusseldorf, Hong Kong and Geneva, Victorinox now has a corporate audio solution that gives exceptional control to the brand management department.

“It’s no longer an ‘everybody is a DJ’ approach within the different store locations,” said dal Farra. “This streamlined process has also brought a fair amount of convenience to the store staff as there is no more music editorial work, licensing or normalizing of tracks.”

Dal Farra added that the new solution also provides Victorinox headquarters with the option to introduce real-time advertisements using ad injection software — a potential revenue generator that would quickly monetize the new in-store audio network.

About Barix AG (www.barix.com)
