Technomad PowerChiton Amplifiers Revive Stadium Audio at Excelsior Springs High School

Compact, efficient design allows installation team to seamlessly integrate PowerChiton amplifier modules into existing scoreboard

BOSTON, July 30, 2013 — Students rooting for the home team at Excelsior Springs High School in Excelsior Springs, Missouri, can now enjoy vibrant, crystal-clear sound as they take in football games and other events at their school’s outdoor stadium. As part of a long-overdue audio upgrade, the school has installed two Technomad PowerChiton 500 modules at the stadium to drive its loudspeakers, significantly improving sound quality.

Kansas City, Missouri-based systems integrator Harvest Productions, which performed the upgrade, housed the new PowerChiton modules inside the stadium’s scoreboard. The compact PowerChiton design enabled the unusual installation, ensuring they are not visible to spectators. The PowerChiton amplifiers now deliver 1100 watts at four ohms, with excellent sound quality across the stadium.

The weatherproof design also ensures better outdoor protection than the school’s previous amplifiers, which were damaged from years of exposure to the elements. PowerChiton modules are built with an integral IP66-rated, NEMA weatherproof shell, and can be installed anywhere without concern about moisture or dirt.

“The old amplifiers were a mess; we found insects nesting inside the amplifier casings, which were standard electrical boxes without any weather sealing,” said Martin Pilewski, Corporate Business Development Manager at Harvest Productions. “Plus, the casings would cause the amplifiers to overheat. Every time this happened the staff would turn up the volume, which caused the speakers to blow. The PowerChiton was right in line with the school’s need for compact, weatherproof amplifiers. Not only were they ideal for outdoor audio use, but they also fit within their budget.”

The efficient PowerChiton design requires only a passive radiator for cooling, so there is a lower chance that the system will overheat. The amplifier unit is also fuse-protected for maximum operational efficiency.

“We have one of the most sophisticated high school stadiums in the area, and it was embarrassing when our speakers blew out during a football game,” said Roger Siegel, assistant director of activities at Excelsior Springs High School. “We’ve been up and running with the new system for a year now and the sound quality is a monumental improvement. The audio is crisp, clear and perfectly leveled across the stadium. We are absolutely thrilled with our new system.”

The PowerChiton is available in both wireless and Ethernet options. Pilewski chose the Ethernet version as the most cost-effective configuration for Excelsior Springs High School.

“The system was easy to set up and install,” he said. “There were already solid line level feeds in the scoreboard, so there was no need to overhaul anything just to install wireless units. We just screwed the amplifier to a wall, connected the input and output through compression fittings and plugged in the unit. It doesn’t get much simpler than that.”

HRS Control Adds Schedule Management and Mass Updater Features to Popular Raptor Server

HRS Control has announced a new Schedule Management feature for UDC Pro ECS-Raptor, a UDC Pro Embedded Control Server for permanent AV installs. Schedule Management enables users to schedule control and macros using the familiar Google calendar interface. A second new feature, Raptor Mass Updater, is also in the works.

A Linux-embedded server that significantly lowers costs to users over full-blown Windows servers, the popular Raptor began shipping in February. Raptor comes with an Ethernet connection to the device network, optional WiFi and one USB port while supporting a wide variety of third party network interface products for legacy control such as Serial, IR, Contact Closure, Relay, Sensor, DMX, MIDI, LTC, MTC, time code and more. It occupies 1RU in height and one-half of a rack in width and ships with an optional rack shelf for space-saving rack mounting.

Raptor supports the same user interfaces as UDC software: iPad touch control with the HRS Control Pro iOS app available in Apple’s App Store; the HRS Control Pro app for any Windows tablet available in the Windows Store; in-wall mount touch screen and button solutions; Android tablets; and web browsers. Any device with a browser can act as a controller.

“We always intended to introduce Schedule Management but when one of Raptor’s first clients asked for it, we gave it priority,” says programmer Daniel Renne. Users simply access the list of macros on their web browser, drag-and- drop macros into the calendar view and set the times to trigger them.

“Once the configuration is built the user can manage rooms and schedule control events quickly and easily. This feature is designed to give the end user a simple drag and drop interface for managing scheduled automation and control in a variety of markets,” says Drew Taylor at HRS Control.

HRS Control plans to integrate the new feature into UDC for Windows to gain the same functionality across the board.

A second new feature, Raptor Mass Updater, is expected to be part of the next release at the end of August. Raptor Mass Updater will enable users to push the same configuration out to multiple Raptor units simultaneously for distributed configuration uploading.

“Currently, users have to upload a configuration to one Raptor at a time, so facilities with multiple rooms of Raptors with the same configuration will be able to do a multi-Raptor upload,” Taylor explains. “For educational customers with many classrooms or businesses with conference and meeting rooms that are alike, Raptor Mass Updater will make it easier and faster to do facility-wide updates to the control systems.”

Iconyx Brings Clarity to the Art of Living Foundation

Boone, NC – July 2013… Founded in 1981 by spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the Art of Living Foundation has evolved to become one of the world’s largest volunteer-based humanitarian and educational non-governmental organizations. Working with the United Nations Economic and Social Council, the Foundation offers programs dedicated to health, education, eliminating stress, and restoring human values in more than 140 countries worldwide.

One of the Foundation’s most treasured retreats is The International Center for Meditation and Well-Being, located in the lush, rolling hills of the Great Smokey Mountains. It’s an idyllic piece of Planet Earth, where visitors can immerse themselves in the grandeur of nature, while retuning their bodies and minds with yoga, meditation, and organic diet. 

The retreat’s Meditation Hall is a large, multi-purpose space that is used for everything from yoga and meditation classes to dance events and performances. As Jeff Hedgecock, Project Manager for AVI-SPL in Charlotte, NC explains, the room is visually appealing but acoustically challenging. 

“It’s a very large space, very bright and airy and open, with nice high ceilings,” says Hedgecock. “But when they have someone leading a yoga or mediation class, intelligibility is quite an issue. And that’s not a scenario where one wants to shout, so for people at the back of the room it’s very difficult to concentrate on the instruction being given.” 

A single pair of Renkus-Heinz Iconyx IC16-R-II provided an ideal solution for the room’s sonic challenges. “They hold some dance events and performances there as well, so the musical performance of the Iconyx was equally critical,” says Hedgecock.  

The Iconyx’s multiple steerable beams can be individually attenuated to provide uniform coverage and SPL across even the most challenging spaces. “That’s one of the things that’s great about the Iconyx – we were able to steer the beam to make the whole hall sound great,” says Hedgecock.

The design-build system is streamlined and uncomplicated. A Biamp Red One handles simple volume and source selection, with all audio routed directly to the Iconyx columns. As Hedgecock observes, aesthetics was also a consideration here. 

“The fact that we were able to paint the speakers to pretty much blend into the walls was a major advantage for them,” he explains. He points to his own previous experience with Iconyx as instrumental in trying them at the Foundation. “I’ve used Iconyx on a couple of other problematic spaces, and was pretty certain it would be a good fit here.”

Joe W. Brown Park’s Post-Katrina Restoration includes Community R-Series Loudspeakers

Joe W. Brown Memorial Park in Eastern New Orleans is a 135-acre park with an activities center, in-door heated pool, ball fields, picnic shelters, play equipment and a large nature center. After sustaining substantial damage during Hurricane Katrina, Joe W. Brown Park was restored with help from Nike, the Allstate Sugar Bowl and the Brees Dream Foundation. As part of the restoration, the city of New Orleans added Victory Field, a new football stadium, and restored an existing track and field facility.

Both facilities include new sound systems, designed and installed by Technical Services Group of Baton Rouge with Community R-Series Loudspeaker Systems. “You really can’t go wrong with Community R-Series,” said Patrick Meek of Technical Services Group. “They’re built to project crisp, intelligible sound and withstand any weather conditions.”

Meek chose Community R2 loudspeakers for Victory Field and Community R.5s for the smaller Track and Field. Powered by QSC amplifiers and using an Ashly Protea DSP, both designs have the loudspeakers on top of the press box covering the home bleachers, field and cross-field area which includes visitor seating at Victory Field.

The facilities are open to many different groups so Meek designed both systems to be user-friendly. He placed a handheld and headset microphone inside each press box and added wireless mics for the referees. “The city officials were very pleased with the systems,” Meek said, “they’re easy to use and they sound great!”

Circuit of the Americas Hosts Formula One with Community

Community R-Series at Main Grandstand

Austin’s Circuit of the Americas (COTA) is America’s first purpose-built Formula One racing track. Completed in late 2012, COTA’s campus includes the Main Grandstand with VIP Lounge, the Grand Plaza with food court and shops, a 251 foot (77m) Observation Tower and the Pit Building with an adjacent Media Center. The track includes bleachers at several locations to supplement the Grandstand seating.

Although the Formula One and other races are the site’s main attractions, A/V systems play major supporting roles. Architect Tilke’s Formula One designs include race control systems and basic audio and video systems but Circuit of the Americas chose to upgrade and/or supplement the A/V systems in many areas.

Circuit of the Americas retained consultant Acoustic Dimensions for many of the venue’s networks and for the audio and video system upgrades. Acoustic Dimensions value engineered the low-voltage systems and, in cooperation with Hughes Associates, led the effort to comply with the mass notification code. AT&T, the overall campus technology contractor, chose Ford AV to assist in the A/V systems field design and installation.

The original audio specification consisted primarily of paging horns for race audio and public announcements. To meet COTA’s request for A/V upgrades, Acoustic Dimensions and Ford AV set up a loudspeaker performance evaluation for Circuit of the Americas’ management personnel. Conventional paging horns were used as a baseline and two upgraded systems were offered for comparison. Circuit of the Americas selected Community’s R-Series, for their overall performance and sound quality, their reputation for long-term outdoor durability and their high sensitivity (efficiency) which reduced amplifier requirements and helped Circuit of the Americas meet its budget guidelines.

Community R2s, R.5HPs and WET Series loudspeakers are used in the Main Grandstand, on the track and in other outdoor areas. Community Distributed Design Series ceiling and surface-mount loudspeakers are used in the Main Grandstand, the Grandstand VIP Lounge and the Pit Building. Community VERIS2 loudspeakers are used in the Media Center with the video systems. Audio electronics include Crown amplifiers, BSS London DSPs and Soundcraft digital mixing consoles. Acoustic Dimension’s Craig Janssen says “Circuit of the Americas is very pleased with the choice of Community loudspeakers for these systems”.

ELAN g! Gives Apple®-Enthusiast Total Control Over His 18,000-Square Foot Home

The Musil family members love using an iPad or iPhone for scheduling, playing games and staying connected to one another. So when homeowner John Musil decided he wanted simple consolidated control of the security, lighting and A/V components in his 18,000-square foot home in the Arcadia-area of Phoenix, Arizona, he had to be able to do it all from his favorite Apple devices. Now that the home has an ELAN g! Entertainment and Control System, the Musil family can easily control every major subsystem of their home with the push of a button!

Musil first hired Scottsdale-based builder Sage Luxury Homes to build his dream home that features a media room, game room, fitness area, basketball court and a guesthouse. Musil then brought Phoenix-based integrator Digital Home Lifestyles on board to install a control system that would offer complete control over every area of the home.

“When the homeowner told me that his top priority was to have total control over his home through his iPhone and iPad, I instantly thought of the ELAN g! system,” said Jeff Beall, President & CEO of Digital Home Lifestyles. “Not only is the ELAN g! system one of the most affordable control solutions on the market today, but its also one of the most capable, integrating with an endless number of third-party components and having the ability to scale to any size installation. Just as a robust wireless networking infrastructure is crucial to any new home, an easy-to-use control system like ELAN g! becomes the central nervous system that makes all the home’s technology accessible to every person who might need to use it.”

Digital Home Lifestyles equipped the home with an ELAN g! system that gives the Musil family control over lighting, surveillance, security, irrigation systems, audio, video and more. The g! system can be accessed through a variety of different interfaces including the homeowner’s iPhones and iPads, three ELAN TS10 touch screens and a whopping 25 ELAN Z100 keypads for AV functions. The installation included 10 Samsung LED LCD TVs throughout the house, three Apple TV® systems, five Apple iPod docks and two Samsung Blu-Ray Players.

Digital Home Lifestyles also installed a total of 10 Speco Technologies cameras for surveillance, and the Musil family is now able to enjoy 24 zones of high quality audio through eight Niles loudspeakers, six Monitor Audio outdoor speakers and a Source Technologies LCR flat panel speaker. The g! system controls the functions of all the major rooms in the house, including the guesthouse where visitors can use g! interfaces to control the lighting, audio and video without any instructions necessary.

“What initially made the ELAN g! system so attractive was the idea that I could easily keep an eye on the house while I’m at the office or on vacation,” said Musil. “Digital Home Lifestyles installed a number of surveillance cameras both inside and outside the house, including one on the entry gate, so it’s very simple for me to check in on the house whenever I’m away for an extended period of time. What makes the system so incredible is that the entire family is able to use the g! system without training. We’re thrilled that such an easy-to-use system can perform so many different functions throughout our house.”

Most of the technology that makes all this possible is located in a professional rack unit located in a storage closet on the lower level, which effectively hides all the unsightly black boxes typical of a home entertainment system. The rack includes an ELAN HC12 controller, three ELAN S128P AV Controller/Amplifiers, an ELAN S1616A Multi-zone Amplifier, an ELAN S86P Multi-Room A/V controller, an IC Realtime 16-Channel Security Camera DVR, a Rotel amplifier and Krell amplifier, networking components from Motorola, Netgear and Pakedge, and a networked Sony Blu-Ray player.

Kensington Church Relies on FOR-A Video Switcher While Transitioning to Full HD Production

Cypress, CA, July 29, 2013 – Kensington Church had been using their existing switcher for years when they decided to upgrade to a FOR-A HVS-390HS video switcher, but the move came sooner than expected when the current switcher gave out right before Easter weekend. The metro Detroit-based church called in local systems integrator Advanced Lighting & Sound to gut out the old equipment, install the new HVS-390HS switcher, have it operational for service the next morning, and show a volunteer how to use it. Thanks to the integrator’s expertise, some hard work, and the user friendly HVS-390HS switcher, Kensington Church went on to produce hiccup-free holiday weekend services and has been relying on the switcher ever since.

“Some of the best things about the HVS-390HS switcher are that it’s simple to use, intuitive, and offers great affordability,” said Dennis Andersen, Kensington Church’s Technical Director. “Our volunteer operator learned how to use the switcher in a matter of a few hours, just in the nick of time for Sunday service.”

Kensington Church has five locations – three are portable campuses and two are in permanent locations. The HVS-390HS switcher is installed in the main church’s control room backstage.

According to Andersen, the flexibility of the switcher is crucial to meet the production needs of Kensington Church. The church uses 2D and 3D effects, streams its services on a bi-weekly basis, employs IMAG (image magnification) in its 1,400-person auditorium and shows the services in the chapel overflow room.

Andersen explained, “We’ve really appreciated the flexibility of the switcher. There are so many assignable buttons and aux capabilities. We’ve been able to do a number of modifications based on our needs. Our production team has really relied on the front control panels that allow us to do secondary outputs at our remote campuses.”

Another key consideration in choosing the FOR-A switcher was its ability to accommodate mixed inputs. Because the church is in the process of upgrading to HD, having a switcher that’s compatible with both SD-SDI and HD inputs was a necessity.

“With Kensington Church migrating to HD, we needed to find a cost-effective, high-quality switcher that fit their needs,” said Bob Sullivan, President of Advanced Lighting & Sound. “FOR-A’s HVS-390HS solution was ideal. The switcher has a plug and play set up, so it’s really convenient for the church to have during their HD transition. And with its mix effects, aux, and keyer capabilities, it offers the features the church needs, at an affordable price.”

Waves Audio, a recipient of a technical GRAMMY® award, utilizes their professional audio processing heard on countless hit records, major motion pictures and top-selling video games, on mobile devices in the form of MaxxAudio Mobile, delivering outstanding audio performance whether users are watching a movie, listening to music, playing a game online, or using voice communication, enabling users to hear sound the way it was meant to be heard.

Eddie Sinnott, VP of Portfolio, Strategy and Marketing at Wolfson Microelectronics said: “Waves is globally-renowned for its industry-leading technology in the professional audio market, and we are delighted to partner with them to deliver this exciting new audio solution for portable devices. At Wolfson we are committed to enabling our customers to achieve the highest quality audio in their products, and this partnership helps to bring professional studio-quality audio to portable devices while extending playback time. With audio processing demands continuing to grow, this solution will allow OEMs to further differentiate their products in the market place.”
