Osheaga Music and Arts Festival Leaps Onto the World Stage as Sennheiser Provides Exquisite Sound for Fourth Year in a Row

Montreal, September 12, 2013 – Montreal’s Osheaga Music and Arts Festival, held every summer at the city’s breathtaking Parc Jean-Drapeau on Île Sainte-Hélène, is not only well established as Canada’s top music festival, but is also ranked as one of the top music festivals in the world. With many thousands of passionate indie music fans in attendance, audio manufacturer Sennheiser was on hand to support the Green Stage (La scène verte) for the fourth year in a row, along with loudspeaker manufacturer K-array.

Since launching in 2006, when headliners including Sonic Youth, Ben Harper, and the Flaming Lips drew a crowd of 25,000, Osheaga has grown to attract no less than 135,000 music fans – and along the way has become an essential stop among many touring artists’ itinerary. In 2012, Pollstar ranked Osheaga Music and Arts Festival as the 11th largest in the world. This year, amidst mostly sunny skies, international touring artists gracing the Green Stage included The Breeders, The Gaslight Anthem, Tricky, Explosions in the Sky, Beach House and many others. Sennheiser’s Global Relations Team supported Osheaga’s Green Stage by supplying an impeccably pre-configured rack of its wireless solutions including IEMs (in-ear monitors), while Sennheiser Canada supplied a comprehensive selection of instrument and vocal microphones as well as the latest energy-efficient loudspeakers from K-array.

“The Osheaga Music and Arts Festival continues to enjoy an increasing international profile as a ‘destination music festival’, attracting music fans from all around the world with the beautiful backdrop of Montreal,” said Sennheiser’s Kristy Jo Winkler, relations manager, Americas. “Four years ago, Sennheiser helped the Green Stage establish an impressive standard in sound quality, staging and power efficiency. We hope to continue doing this for many years to come.”

Sennheiser makes Osheaga’s La Scène Verte sing

Dozens of veteran and emerging artists delivered electrifying sets through to a rapt audience of as many as 25,000 at the Green Stage. Living up to its “green” moniker, the stage featured the latest, highly efficient line of K-array speakers, as well as Sennheiser’s 2000 series wireless transmitters and receivers, its evolution series wired microphones, and its ew 300 IEM G3 wireless monitoring systems.

Sennheiser e 935 wired microphones were used as well as MMD 935-1 microphone capsules in conjunction with SKM 2000 XP handheld wireless transmitters. “I have been using Sennheiser 935 capsules for many years now and I love them,” states Greg “Monk” McClement, front-of-house engineer for the Sennheiser Green Stage. “We used them throughout the festival, in both wired and wireless applications. That’s the main vocal capsule I use on anything I do.”

Sennheiser’s evolution series microphones were also used throughout the backline. Monk had Sennheiser mics covering the entire drum kit on the stage, starting with the e 602-II cardioid microphone on the kick drum: “When the e 602-II mic came out, suddenly I had the attack, as well as the softness that is necessary for the type of music that I am doing,” he says. “All kick drum mics are different, but the e 602-II gives me more options to find the sound I am looking for.”

For the rest of the drum kit, Monk used a Sennheiser e 905 on the snare, an e 604 on the toms and a Neumann KM 184 on the hi-hat. “The e 604 clip-on is great because it not only sounds great but also helps facilitate the quick changeover we need in between acts for the patch guys on stage,” observes Monk.

The guitars amplifiers were covered by Sennheiser e 906s and e 609s, which were used in combination with a Sennheiser MK 4 large-diaphragm microphone on some of the amps. “The large-diaphragm on the MK 4 helps me pick up the mid-range frequencies properly. On the guitar amps, we had the mic pretty close up to the speaker and the capsule really held up,” Monk says.

Monk was particularly pleased with the state the Sennheiser rack containing the wireless receivers and handheld transmitters arrived in. “Everything seemed to be tuned, and it was super-easy for us to access all the packs and handhelds we needed,” he says. In a live scenario where every production minute counts, this made set up more efficient: “We don’t have time to mess around,” he says. “We are doing live music and everything has to work on the first shot.” The Sennheiser IEMs, as well as the wireless transmitters, proved to be a magical combination for both the production staff and the artists: “When the in-ears sound this good, the bands are all just so happy,” Monk observes. “The clarity between the wireless mics sending and the in-ears receiving is just insane – I have never heard that kind of quality from any other company.”

K-array Powers The Green Stage for Four Years Running

The self-powered PA system on the Green Stage consisted of ten KH4 two-way speaker systems, ten KS4 dipole subwoofers, and ten KO70 dual-21-inch sub-bass cabinets, with additional KH4/KS4 arrays as well as KH15 compact two-way speakers providing fill and delay. “It felt like we were indoors,” says Monk. “It’s very difficult when you are outdoors to have that feeling, but the K-array system managed to deliver that. All the bands’ sound guys were very impressed and really felt like they were mixing inside.”

Vaino Gennaro, Business Director-Live sound Sennheiser Canada, articulated how the K-array speaker system continues to deliver significant energy and cost savings: “The power consumption on the K-array KH4/KS4 speaker system is reduced to a minimum thanks to the use of digital amplifier modules with high-energy output from minimal power input, hence saving energy and becoming the first ‘green’ PA in the market.”

“The compact size, shape and light weight of the K-array system will fit most PA system demands while requiring only a minimal footprint,” Gennaro continued. “This results in savings on trucking – smaller trucks mean lower rental costs, savings on fuel, and requires only a regular driver’s license.” He also observes that the labor for set-up and teardown is minimized, because less crew and man-hours are required. “A lighter system requires fewer rigging points, smaller motors, and can be easily ground-stacked,” he says.

Aside from the cost and set-up efficiencies, the K-array over-delivered when it came to the sound. With its built-in DSP settings, the entire rig was easy to tune and optimize for the venue. “It delivered an awesome clean and true sound that could be heard even from a distance!” says Gennaro. One of the main considerations in setting up the PA was ensuring that the PA would deliver sufficient headroom, in case a sound engineer were to push the system by a few dBs. Gennaro recalls such an instance: “During a set by C2C, the engineer pushed the system and the K-arrays really rose to the occasion and sounded amazing,” he says. “On the live console faders for a system this large, the difference of zero plus one or zero plus two can mean a huge amount of sound. We knew the speakers would handle this and there was absolutely no distortion.”

Looking back on another successful Osheaga festival, Monk is grateful to have Sennheiser at his back: “Sennheiser takes professionals very seriously, and the company stands behind their products when they are engaged at a festival like this,” he concludes. “Each time, they put a really good team together with a lot of experience. This goes a long way during a festival that has many of us working long hours over the course of many days. It is also great for the bands coming in to play, because they know they’re going to get great sound.”

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. In 2012 the family company, which was founded in 1945, achieved a turnover of around 584 million euros. Sennheiser employs more than 2,300 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, Switzerland and Liechtenstein, Germany, Denmark (Nordic), Russia, Hong Kong, India, Singapore, Japan, China, Australia and New Zealand, 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).

Harmonic Announces Interoperability of MediaGrid Storage System With Adobe Anywhere for Video

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Sept. 10, 2013 — Harmonic (NASDAQ: HLIT), the worldwide leader in video delivery infrastructure, today announced interoperability of the Harmonic MediaGrid shared storage system with the Adobe(R) Anywhere for video collaborative workflow platform. Integration of the two products enables media organizations to centralize and manage media delivery services from a primary location while giving users of Adobe professional video tools the benefit of collaborating remotely with fast response times and the best available quality that can be delivered over the available network connection.

“Adobe Anywhere brings together teams of talent to collaborate and create productions from virtually any location where there is network connectivity. Many editors say now, even in remote environments that don’t have high bandwidth, the combination of MediaGrid and Adobe Anywhere makes it possible to edit efficiently,” said Michael Coleman, senior product manager, collaborative workflows, professional video at Adobe. “Today’s announcement ensures users can tap into the full potential of Adobe Anywhere to enable truly effective remote editing workflows.”

Adobe Anywhere is a modern collaborative workflow platform that empowers users of Adobe professional video solutions to work together, using centralized media, across standard networks. The MediaGrid shared storage system provides the bandwidth performance and storage capacity needed to support the on-demand adaptive bit rate transcoding used by Adobe Anywhere transcode engines to stream content over bandwidth connections that may lack performance normally needed to edit centrally stored high-resolution, high-quality images.

Providing a compelling alternative to remote editing solutions that rely on low-resolution proxy material, non-real-time file transfers, or even the exchange of hard drives, the integration of the MediaGrid system with Adobe Anywhere offers significant time savings while eliminating compromises in resolution, image, and sound quality. By minimizing the hardware and support needed by satellite sites, the solution also simplifies administration and management tasks while reducing CAPEX and OPEX expenditures.

Together, Adobe Anywhere and MediaGrid are ideal for editing applications in news, production, postproduction, or any other situation in which collaborative workflows or media access is limited by or unsuitable for traditional edit-in-place operations.

“This integrated solution takes full advantage of the MediaGrid storage system’s ability to deliver high-bandwidth, low-latency performance to attached I/O devices,” said Tom Lattie, vice president of product management, at Harmonic. “MediaGrid provides known and sustainable performance, delivering bandwidth consistently and at the same throughput level whether storage is 1 percent or 99 percent full. The exceptional bandwidth performance of the storage system allows users to maximize the performance of the Adobe Anywhere solution and, in turn, to realize a host of other operational benefits stemming from efficient and reliable collaborative editing workflows.”

Harmonic’s line of advanced broadcast and multiscreen solutions, including the MediaGrid shared storage system, will be featured at Harmonic’s stand 1.B20 during IBC2013 in Amsterdam, Sept. 13-17. Further information about Harmonic and the company’s products is available at www.harmonicinc.com.
