Snell Offers Leading Motion Adaptive Conversion Technology in Versatile, Cost-Effective 30 Series Format Converter Cards

New Series Combines Broad I/O Support and Exceptional Up-, Down-, and Crossconversion to Meet Demands of Common Conversion Applications

READING, U.K. — Aug. 6, 2013 — Snell today announced the release of the 30 Series IQ range of format converter cards, which offer Snell’s renowned high-performance processing in a cost-effective design with the power and functionality required to address a wide range of applications. Based on a single IQ Modular Infrastructure module, single- and dual-channel cards in the series couple motion adaptive broadcast-quality conversion with support for a wealth of input and output types to enable flexible up-, down-, and crossconversion. In particular, the module allows output of an SD/HD simulcast in a single card while maintaining independent aspect ratios, metadata, and audio for each channel. Supporting up to 10 cards, the module allows 20 channels of conversion in a 3U rack space for remarkable space and power utilization. The 30 Series IQ range of format converter cards is available starting at $2,995 per channel.

“Cards in the new 30 Series IQ format converter range are ideal for handling a wide variety of common applications such as upconversion for re-purposing of SD content on HD channels, or down-conversion to maintain SD output feeds,” said Steve Cole, product manager at Snell. “With numerous processing options, a rich array of features, and multiple rear panel types, these versatile cards are suited to numerous applications and price points, and by condensing multiple functions into a single card they provide further cost savings to our customers.”

The 30 Series’ broad input/output support enables handling of SDI and AES digital video and audio, analog video and audio (including HDMI), fiber, and GPIs. All cards in the series include a frame synchronizer capable of referencing to a SD bi-level or HD tri-level reference and a variable aspect ratio converter with reading and writing of WSS, VI, and 2016 AFD signaling. Within the series, space-saving dual-channel cards give users the freedom to output two channels independently or to output an SD/HD simulcast while maintaining independent aspect ratios, metadata, and audio for each channel.

Standard audio handling capabilities include audio channel routing, delay adjustment, and level controls. Video metadata such as time code, closed captions, and teletext captions can be passed through the module or processed according to the required output standard. Further tailoring of 30 Series cards to system requirements is made easy by software options that provide noise reduction and side-bar keying. Versions are also available with SFP cages that enable fiber conversion or the use of HDMI and additional electrical outputs on HD-BNCs.

Comprehensive control and monitoring capabilities are inclusive to all Snell equipment; therefore, the new 30 Series range has full RollCall and SNMP compatibility at no extra cost, allowing easy integration with Snell or third-party network management systems.

Iconyx Welcomes You to Las Vegas

Las Vegas, NV – August, 2013… Despite the recent real estate woes, Las Vegas remains one of the fastest growing cities in America. And as the city has grown, so has its airport. Along with the recent opening of its new 1.9 million square foot Terminal 3, McCarran International Airport has also revamped and renovated the original Terminal 1, including an updated sound system featuring dozens of Renkus-Heinz Iconyx digitally steerable array loudspeakers.

“Terminal 1 was not designed with a dedicated paging system,” explains Edouard Charland, Vice President of Lenexa, KS-based Coffeen Fricke & Associates, Inc. (CFA). ”The airport was using the fire alarm systems for paging, and most of the terminal-wide announcements were originating from a paging office that was using the telephone system to originate those announcements. This approach produced low levels of speech intelligibility and offered very little flexibility for zoning and directing announcements.”

Based on their involvement in the Terminal 3 project, CFA was called in to offer suggestions for the ailing audio issues at Terminal 1.. One of the most challenging areas was the expansive baggage claim area. As Charland explains, in addition to the typical acoustical issues inherent in large spaces, there was something uniquely Vegas.

“All around the carousel area there are numerous large screens playing video advertisements for local casinos and night clubs. The audio systems for those screens are fairly loud. They’re running pretty much non-stop 24/7, and they’re only overridden for emergency announcements.”

The baggage claim area is covered by 32 Iconyx IC16-R-II steered arrays, mounted on opposite sides of each carousel’s pillar to provide 360 degrees of coverage. As CFA’s Sr. Vice President Robert Ledo points out, the arrangement provided an unprecedented degree of control. ”Typically, an airport will be zoned so that all of baggage claim is a single zone, or possibly a couple of zones. But this arrangement also enables them to address each individual carousel – this was an airport directive.”

“The Iconyx system actually enabled us to provide better intelligibility than something like an overhead distribution scheme,” Ledo adds. ”It can concentrate the energy right at the people, and cut through the background noise.”

Another area where the Iconyx steered beam technology really shined was in the lengthy ticketing lobby, where the building’s unique architecture presented its own set of challenges. ”The ticketing lobby’s design looks like an airplane wing,” says Charland. ”So the horizontal coverage pattern varies as you go further down toward the narrower taper of the wing. Using the Iconyx provided us a way to cover the entire space not only horizontally but also to change the front and back coverage distance as the dimensions change.”

Twenty-two IC16-R-II columns are mounted about every 50 feet along the second floor walkway overlooking the main ticketing lobby. Custom brackets and fittings include metal wedges on the top of each cabinet to prevent their being mistaken for cup holders. ”The beams are steered downward, each one a bit differently depending on the dimensions of the coverage area,” says Ledo. ”It also provides a bit of a buffer zone right below the speakers in the ticketing counters themselves. You don’t want to bombard the ticketing counter itself with sound because agents are trying to talk to passengers. So being able to steer and direct the sound to where it needs to be helps provide that buffer.”

In both the ticketing lobby and baggage claim, the entire system is linked via RHAON networking, allowing for complex DSP programming to custom-steer each array independently using multiple beams. TheRHAON software and on-board contact closures are also used to monitor each array for proper operation.

Charland concludes, ”the Iconyx systems enabled us to create customized coverage patterns to fit each space, and afforded us a degree of control and monitoring over the systems that a facility like McCarran International Airport demands.”

Headquartered in Foothill Ranch, California, Renkus-Heinz, Inc. is the worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of audio operations networks, digitally steerable arrays, powered and non-powered loudspeakers, system specific electronics and fully integrated Reference Point Array systems.

POWERSOFT ACHIEVES 600 MILLION WATTS AUDIO POWER

Florence, Italy, August 2013 — Powersoft is proud to announce that it has reached the milestone of 600 million watts of audio power spread out around the world. This impressive figure has been 15 years in the making, in which time Powersoft has strived to supply the pro audio industry with power amplifiers of the highest quality and efficiency.

“We recently had a count up and realized that we were getting close to the 600 million watts mark “explains Luca Giorgi, Powersoft’s Audio BU Director. “Nearly 600 million, but not quite. We were still missing about 3 million watts and it became our goal to achieve this target before the end of August”

“To help reach this landmark figure, we needed to come up with an effective promotion,” added Francesco Fanicchi, Powersoft’s Marketing and Communication Manager, “so we created the ‘600millionreasons’ campaign. Announcing the promotion through all of our communication channels, we invited visitors to register on a dedicated website and to join our cause.” 

The 600millionreasons campaign has proven to be a success beyond expectations. Powersoft has reached the goal after just three weeks, selling several hundred of its powerful K10 and K20 amplifiers in a matter of days.  This result confirms the value and acceptance of Powersoft amplifiers and of switching mode technology in a market that can often be skeptical.

While the idea of 600 million watts can conjures up images of pollution and of huge energy bills, in truth what needs to be evaluated is the other side of the coin: how much energy has been saved?

If done well, switching mode technology for power amplification is intrinsically efficient and Powersoft has always paid a great deal attention to maximizing these characteristics and designing products that minimize energy consumption. “If we compare our top level touring amplifiers with those of our competitors using more traditional technology,” adds Giorgi, “the benefits quickly add up.

To put this into a practical example: Imagine two systems running 600 megawatts of audio power, at full power, for one hour. The first system is comprised of Powersoft PWM, switch mode amplifiers, the second with traditional linear amplifiers. With around 85% to 90% efficiency, the power required to run the Powersoft amps would produce somewhere in the region of 24 tonnes (or megagrams) of carbon dioxide emissions less than the linear amps. This means that on average K20 Powersoft amplifier can save about half kilograms per hour of CO2 (1/4 of full output power at 4 ohm).

The importance of the ecology-efficient technologies is becoming ever more relevant in the world that we live in. Integrating these technologies into products has always been part of the underlying philosophy at Powersoft—both to save customers money and as a contribution to preserving the environment.

 

Even though the original target has been reached, the 600millionreasons campaign will continue as planned until the end of August.

ESP/SurgeX Announces the SurgeX Defender Series Surge + PDU

With patented Multi-Stage power protection, the SurgeX Defender Series Surge + PDU offers a comprehensive all-in-one solution that distributes power, saves space, and safeguards IT equipment from damaging power anomalies beyond a UPS.

Knightdale, NC – August 6, 2013 – ESP/SurgeX, the leader in energy intelligence and power protection announces the SurgeX Defender Series Surge + PDU, a solution designed to address the power issues that arise in the SMB office IT setting. This first-of-its-kind device couples patented Multi-Stage power protection, filtration, and noise elimination inside the convenience of a traditional PDU chassis, creating a unique combination that offers superior defense against server damage and business downtime.

Developed in conjunction with engineers at Dell specifically for their new PowerEdge VRTX server solutions, the Surge + PDU is the ideal choice for remote and small office settings. Designed to safeguard IT equipment from damaging surges, spikes, over voltage, EMI/RFI noise, and wiring faults, it provides a level of protection superior to IT systems utilizing only an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) or power distribution unit (PDU). Featuring an optimal 1U space saving form factor that can be mounted in a rack or tower configuration, the Defender Series Surge + PDU can easily integrate into any system. This unique technology is superior to the single-stage MOV circuitry found in conventional surge protectors and is instrumental in reducing downtime for small and medium sized businesses.

Working in combination with a UPS, which is a key consideration to safeguard servers from power outages but is not designed to provide system wide power protection, the Surge + PDU insures increased uptime, longer component lifespans, reduced service calls, and greater customer satisfaction.

According to International Data Corporation, power disturbances account for about one third of all server failures. Yet many small to mid-sized businesses still keep servers on the same circuit as other office equipment where outlets are not dedicated, redundant, isolated, or protected—creating a hostile AC power environment and leaving businesses vulnerable.

“Unlike traditional, controlled datacenter environments, virtually every small and medium-sized business has significant exposure to power quality issues that can disrupt the reliability, processes, and data transmitted through networked server equipment,” said Stephen F. Galloway, President, ESP/SurgeX. “Equipment replacement is costly, but lost revenue and customer dissatisfaction can be even more devastating to a business, so inadequate power protection is simply not an option.”

The SurgeX Defender Series Surge + PDU is available in four variations, each with six C13 output connections, including a model with an IEC332 input for global markets.

SurgeX products can be found protecting a wide range of nationally recognized venues. Installations include Carnegie Hall, Hubble Telescope Center, Library of Congress, Yankee Stadium, Dallas Cowboys Stadium, Staples Center, and The Kimmel Center.
