Listen Provides Assistive Listening Solution Set for California Companies to Adapt and Adopt to the New 2013 California Building Standards Code

California Companies Get Ready for Updates to Building Standards and Accessibility Codes

California building and accessibility standards are changing and Listen Technologies is providing a solution set for California builders, architects, AV professionals and building owners to adapt and adopt the new standards for the Assistive Listening requirements.

Assistive Listening Systems, which are amplification systems utilizing transmitters, receivers, and coupling devices, are required for all assembly areas, conference rooms and meeting rooms for people with hearing impairments.

Recently, the California Building Standards Commission adopted the 2013 California Building Standards Code, which incorporates proposals by the Division of the State Architect and others to bring California codes in alignment with the federal standards outlined in Title II and Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, which were revised in 2010. The new California Building Standards Code is available online as of July 1, 2013.

“More than 17 percent of the population suffers from some form of hearing loss and California is to be praised for upgrading its state laws to align with the federal ADA standards to ensure that that large portion of society is able to participate in personal, business and cultural events,” said Cory Schaeffer, Co-Founder of Listen Technologies. “Listen Technologies has made it possible for California companies to bring their buildings and spaces up to code for Assistive Listening with a package designed to provide the right technology for the right space.”

The three technologies used for assistive listening are RF (Radio Frequency), IR (Infrared) and IL (Induction or Hearing Loop).

The Listen RF System transmits a clear audio signal over radio frequencies to a personal receiver. The advantage of RF technology is that there are no “line-of-site” issues and the technology can cover a wide area indoors or outdoors.

The Listen IR System uses infrared light to transmit audio to a personal receiver. The advantage of IR technology is that the system is secure—the audio signal will never leave the room, yet the listener will enjoy consistent, pristine audio.

The Listen Hearing Loop System includes an integral wire that installed around a room in a variety of ways creating an induction field that can be picked up by hearing aids equipped with a tele-coil. More than 60 percent of hearing aids and 100 percent of cochlear implants have a tele-coil. Many venues and users alike enjoy this type of an assistive listening system because the signal is directly transmitted to a user’s hearing aid.

“When designing new building, it is important for the architect to design in assistive listening solutions as early as possible into a project,” Schaeffer added. “This makes it easier and more cost-effective to be both socially responsible and compliant with the law from the very beginning of a project.”

The Department of Justice (DOJ) is responsible for enforcing the ADA standards. The DOJ may file lawsuits in federal court to enforce the ADA, and courts may order compensatory damages and back pay to remedy discrimination. The DOJ may also obtain civil penalties under Title III of up to $55,000 for the first violation and $110,000 for any subsequent violation.

For more than a decade, Listen Technologies has provided high-quality, easy-to-use assistive listening products to thousands of gathering places around the world including schools, houses of worship, factories, entertainment venues, government agencies and more.

Riedel Artist digital matrix intercom, Acrobat digital wireless intercom, Performer digital partyline intercom, and RiFace universal radio interface systems were supplied and integrated by Sony Professional Solutions MEA as part the broadcast solution within the Doha facility to ensure flexible and clear communications throughout the operation.

“The Riedel system enabled and even facilitated open voice communications between our different teams, ultimately resulting in more streamlined and efficient operation here at QTV,” said Mr. Abdulkarim Elsabbagh, head of operations at QTV.

NETIA Celebrates 20 Years in Broadcast Industry

CLARET, France — July 1, 2013 — Having developed and refined an acclaimed product portfolio over the past two decades, NETIA celebrates its 20th anniversary this month. Founded in July 1993 in Claret by Christophe Carniel and Pierre Keiflin, both engineers from L’École des Mines d’Alès, the company has grown into a leading global supplier of software-based solutions for media asset management and delivery of audiovisual content.

“From its humble beginnings 20 years ago, NETIA has evolved into a strong company and a leader within a competitive and rapidly evolving marketplace,” said Philippe Fort, CEO at NETIA. “Through the years, our agility, our unparalleled research and development department, and our willingness to meet the specific needs of our customers have made NETIA a success in delivering valuable, forward-looking solutions for smart, cost-effective media production, management, and content delivery for radio and TV broadcasters throughout the world.”

NETIA launched its first product range, “News-Assist,” in 1995 to enable audio storage, editing, and mixing. Its second product, “Video-Assist,” enabled France-based Euronews to deliver its broadcast programming in the language appropriate to each of its target regions. Over the subsequent years, NETIA worked with key partners in the broadcast space — such as France Telecom, Sony, and EVS — to design and deliver solutions, including the U-Share product, that facilitate more efficient handling of digital A/V content and its metadata.

In 1999, following the acquisition of Audio Follow and its music planning and broadcast production technology, NETIA introduced the first version of its acclaimed Radio-Assist solution, which today is deployed in more than 40 countries. In 2000, the company enhanced its Radio-Assist solution and secured major contracts with international radio and television broadcasters. Broadcasters from the United States, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia continued to invest in NETIA solutions in the next few years.

With the 2005 acquisition of Manreo, NETIA completed its range of video solutions and laid the foundation for the NETIA Media Asset Management solution and then the NETIA CMS (content management system), announced in 2010. NETIA itself became part of the GlobeCast family in 2008. Through the work of its 60 employees, distributed across 40 countries, NETIA today is a global company providing sophisticated, intuitive solutions to some of the media industry’s largest players.

More information about NETIA and its product portfolio is available at www.netia.com.

The project, managed by DOOH.IT, a longstanding YCD partner, is made of a digital multimedia ecosystem that includes video walls, kiosks and interactive applications. The project aims at changing traditional customer’s relationship in order to make it more engaging.

The airport project’s store is designed to create a unique experience for the customer. Inside the space of a digital atrium customers can experience contents ranging from entertainment, advertising and promotion, to brand video and tablet-based resources. Telecom Italia’s customer is surrounded by a complete brand experience with multiple digital displays. The airport’s store is a Telecom Italia’s communications network showcase, where the customer is connected through sound, motion, information and visualization.

The flagship store is divided into various areas, communicating specific messages, such as brand promotion, special offers, services and more. At certain times during the day displays are synchronized, delivering the value of shared communication. All of the in-store content is provided along with the Telecom Italia’s current advertising and commercial campaigns.

“The Telecom Italia flagship store at Fiumicino – Leonardo da Vinci Airport represents a unique innovative digital store concept, strengthening our brand image as an advanced company at the forefront of technology, using it with the aim of closing the gap between the customer and the company,” said Grazia Butera, Telecom Italia Consumer Communication BTL manager. “The ability to provide the customer with interactive information and spectacular, entertaining content creates a unique experience. Real-time updates and content distribution are the basis of our efficiency effort and of our desire to provide the client with the latest information.”

“The project at Telecom Italia’s flagship store reflects the inherent experiential depth of in-store digital multimedia and its contribution to the relationship between the customer and the vendor,” said Noam Levavi, YCD’s CEO. “The ability to combine essential information with innovative brand experience, creates an atmosphere where shopping is about more than just a purchase alone.”

“Digital Out Of Home communication really gets to the next level when you have a chance to work with the brand from the very beginning, designing together the experience delivered to the target” said Roberto Vogliolo, DOOH.IT’s CEO. “This is exactly what happened with Telecom Italia’s flagship store project, where technology has been perfectly integrated with the creative communication concept.”

DOOH.IT, an Italian company specializing in designing and installing digital signage networks has coordinated the entire installation. The screens and content are managed remotely by YCD|CMS from DOOH.IT headquarters in Turin.

Emirates Team New Zealand Joins Forces with BrightSign at the America’s Cup

BrightSign, LLC®, the market leader in digital signage players, today announced that Toulouse Group, Audio Visual Integration Specialists for the New Zealand Government at the Emirates Team New Zealand base, selected BrightSign to power the digital signage network in the team’s America’s Cup hospitality center in San Francisco, California. Emirates Team New Zealand is a two-time winner of the event and is expected to be among the front-runners for this year’s title. This America’s Cup installation is the latest in a long line of collaborative efforts between Toulouse Group and BrightSign. In the past few years alone, Toulouse Group utilized BrightSign’s digital signage players in many venues, including the International Award-winning New Zealand Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo, the outstanding 7,000 square-foot museum at Rotorua Museum New Zealand, and recent new exhibition installs at Carter Observatory New Zealand with its state-of-the-art, full-dome digital theater – a world-class interactive multimedia space experience.

“The America’s Cup is about much more than competition on the water – it’s a months-long gathering of the international sailing community and our presence in the America’s Cup Village will be the team’s home away from home through September,” said Marc Simpson, founder and principal of Toulouse Group. “This hospitality lounge is the “off-the-water” representation of the team and of our country, so it was important to construct a lounge that showcases the very latest technology, and BrightSign enabled us to do precisely that.”

While the installation was completed by AV integrator Toulouse Group, the hospitality lounge itself will be staffed by individuals who lack any formal AV training. This necessitated the installation of equipment that is easy to use and very reliable. BrightSign’s solid-state players served that need perfectly.

Emirates Team New Zealand’s hospitality lounge encompasses a total of 9,600 square feet, comprised of a main gathering area, several ancillary rooms and an expansive outdoor deck. An extensive Ethernet network is deployed throughout the lounge, connecting a total of 23 BrightSign HD120 and HD1020 digital signage players that feed and sync content across a massive video wall comprised of 19 Full HD 1080p displays. Sound is deployed with two BrightSign players and an EM100 expansion module. Six channels of audio fill the space with sound effects and ambient audio all in sync with the video wall. The remaining four BrightSign players feed projectors that project content on a series of white, sail-shaped screens that meld beautifully with the nautical theme of the event.

“Hosting the America’s Cup in the San Francisco Bay Area, it’s expected that the event will showcase the best technology that’s emerging from the Silicon Valley,” said Jeff Hastings, BrightSign’s CEO. “We’re very pleased that Emirates Team New Zealand and its AV integrator Toulouse Group chose BrightSign, and we’re happy to play a part in this impressive installation.”

The America’s Cup officially opens on July 4, 2013. The competition lasts nearly three months and includes a number of racing events such as the Louis Vuitton Cup and the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup. The event culminates with the America’s Cup Finals, which run from September 7-21, 2013.

Pricing & Availability
BrightSign players are available from the BrightSign store. Models range from $250 – $700. Distributor pricing is available upon request. BrightSign’s BrightAuthor software application runs on all late-model PCs and is included free of charge.

BrightSign, LLC is the market leader in digital signage players. Based in Los Gatos, California, the company develops products, software and networking solutions for digital signage.

Vitae Restaurant Serves Great Sound with Community

Located near Grand Central Terminal, in New York City’s Midtown East neighborhood, Vitae is a classy, upscale restaurant featuring a “New American” menu. Designed by architect Niels Guldager of New York interior design firm Studio CMP (www.studio-cmp.com), Vitae draws on the history of Midtown while bearing a strong contemporary identity that includes sound and acoustics as important design elements.

Architect Guldager said “bad sound can ruin an otherwise perfect restaurant environment. I want the right background music level and clarity so people can hear the music but still hold a conversation. And,” he continued, “clarity is key in getting sound into the ‘sweet spot’ as a design element.”

Guldager worked with contractor David Schwartz of Essential Communications in East Hanover, NJ, to design the sound system for Vitae. “The restaurant’s design didn’t always allow us to place the loudspeakers in the best locations for coverage,” said Schwartz. “And, the restaurant has several different ceiling heights.”

After considering these challenges, Schwartz chose Community’s new D-Series ceiling loudspeakers to meet the restaurant’s design goals of clarity and consistent level. D-Series wide, smooth dispersion helped Schwartz get good coverage throughout the restaurant. And, D-Series offered him seven different sized models, with uniform voicing, to help achieve consistent sound level and clarity in the different ceiling heights. Schwartz chose D-Series 6”, 8” and 10” models and notes that he was able to achieve “good blending despite the three different models of loudspeaker.” The system also has zones for music adjustment and source selection. This allows a choice of level and music style for private parties in spaces like the mezzanine.

With its attractive modern appearance, excellent food and great sound, Vitae continues to receive excellent reviews from publications like the New York Post, the Wall Street Journal and Virtual Gourmet and from patrons who post online comments like, “Why did I not find this place earlier?”

Sennheiser Announces Shipment of its New HDVD 800 Digital Amplifier

OLD LYME, Conn. – July 2, 2013 — Audio specialist Sennheiser announced that its new HDVD 800 digital amplifier is now shipping. The new amplifier is designed to provide a crystal clear, brilliant response and is ideally suited for driving the entire line of high-end headphones from Sennheiser, including the HD 600, HD 650, HD 700, HD 800 and other models.

The new HDVD 800 provides a crisp and detailed, distortion-free response — making the listener feel as they were sitting directly in front of the audio source. Designed, developed and manufactured in Germany, the new amplifier is a manifestation of the effort and vision that drives Sennheiser in the development of its high-end products, creating an unsurpassed level of acoustic performance.

Balanced sound image and impressive spaciality
Sonically, the HDVD 800 delivers a balanced sound image, maximum precision and impressive spatiality. It features a fully symmetrical layout that ensures even signal transmission from the source to the headphones. “The fully symmetrical principle effectively compensates for interference and distortion,” explains Axel Grell, Sennheiser’s High-End Product Manager at Sennheiser. “The sound therefore becomes much clearer as total harmonic distortion is minimized.”

The HDVD 800 is also equipped with an asymmetrical input socket; when using this input, incoming signals are symmetrized before further processing takes place. Digital sources are connected to the rear of the unit as an AES/EBU input or S/PDIF (optical and coaxial). The HDVD 800 also features an extra USB input, which offers 24 bit data transmission at 192 KHz*.

Sophisticated materials for a premium touch

A glass panel embedded in the aluminium housing of the amplifier gives a clear view of the top-quality interior of the devices. The rotary potentiometer is mechanically connected to the volume control by a 150mm long shaft. This unusually long shaft allows the signal path between the audio source and the potentiometer to be kept very short, thus preventing possible interference of the signal. High-quality components (Alps RK 27 quad) ensure that the volume is controlled with maximum precision and a fine rotary ‘feel’. Also visible through the glass panel are the cooling element, the audio relay and countless MELF resistors for the amplifier.

The housing, the potentiometer control as well as the rotary switch for selecting the source are all made of anodized aluminium, while the front panel of the housing and the controls are milled from solid material. The HDVD 800, which is priced at $1,999.95, was developed and designed in Germany.

The Sennheiser Group, with its headquarters in Wedemark near Hanover, Germany, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of microphones, headphones and wireless transmission systems. The family-owned company, which was established in 1945, recorded sales of around €531 million in 2011. Sennheiser employs more than 2,100 people worldwide, and has manufacturing plants in Germany, Ireland and the USA. The company is represented worldwide by subsidiaries in France, Great Britain, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark (Nordic), Russia, Hong Kong, India, Singapore, Japan, China, Canada, Mexico and the USA, as well as by long-term trading partners in many other countries. Also part of the Sennheiser Group are Georg Neumann GmbH, Berlin (studio microphones and monitor loudspeakers), and the joint venture Sennheiser Communications A/S (headsets for PCs, offices and call centres).

You can find all the latest information on Sennheiser by visiting our website at www.sennheiserusa.com

*Driverless operation on a Mac from operating system OS 10.5 onwards. A driver is included for Windows computers from XP operating system onwards for 192 kHz operation.

STEVENSVILLE, Md., July 2, 2013 — Video Mount Products (videomount.com), a leading provider of mounting solutions for the commercial, security, residential, and pro audio/video markets, is proud to announce it has partnered with nearby Cub Scout Pack 129 in Centreville, Md. to collect nearly 700 teddy bears for children affected by the recent rash of tornadoes that have devastated the Midwest.

“I told the Scouts that for every teddy bear we can collect for this charity, that’s a smile on a kids face that hasn’t had a lot to smile about recently,” said Keith Fulmer, president of Video Mount Products and a longtime member of the Boy Scouts of America. “Cub Scout Pack 129 did a great job collecting and VMP had the pleasure of helping them pack and ship them out.”

Cub Scout Pack 129 crated close to 700 stuffed animals…nearly 270 pounds worth…at VMP headquarters in Stevensville, Md. VMP donated the boxes and shipping to The Teddy Bear Brigade, which will be in charge of distributing the teddy bears to the kids in need throughout Oklahoma.

“For those kids and families that have been through and lost so much basically in the blink of an eye, it’s the least we could do to return a little normalcy and hope back into their lives,” added Fulmer. “We are so proud of our Scouts and our community for coming out so strong.”
