Owned and operated by concert promoter Live Nation, the intimate 1000-capacity club recently bumped up its production values with the addition of a new ARCS II loudspeaker system from L-ACOUSTICS. more

Real Life Christian Church Expands Its Multi-Site Ministry With Sennheiser Wireless Microphones and In Ear Monitor Systems

Sennheiser’s Evolution Wireless G3 Series Prevails in a High-Volume RF Region, While Providing Scalability and Ease of Operation

Orlando, FL, November 26, 2013: Real Life Christian Church is an Orlando-based ministry providing services to over 5,000 people across five locations, each utilizing Sennheiser microphones and wireless systems. At each of its campuses, the church features live and video teaching as well as upbeat music from a modern worship band, with a volunteer production staff handling most of the AVL duties. The church recently expanded its facilities by adding a new portable campus at the University of Central Florida (UCF) — the second largest university in the United States.

Since the newest campus is ‘portable,’ it requires production staff to quickly set up and strike all the equipment needed to produce a high quality service each week. The system is outfitted with several channels of Sennheiser evolution wireless G3 systems and microphones not only because they are extremely easy to set up, but because they routinely deliver high quality audio and reliability in one of the most congested RF environments in the country.

In addition to using Sennheiser evolution wireless at all of its campuses, Real Life also uses Sennheiser equipment to facilitate Real Life TV on Good Life Broadcasting, a regional broadcast network that reaches millions of people in central Florida. Real Life is also able to extend its reach by hosting church online and a podcast that worshipers can tune into from anywhere in the world.

“We need to make sure that the audio is consistent across each of our environments, whether our services are happening in person or via broadcast,” says Phil Ramsey, media pastor for Real Life. “We use Sennheiser, because any lack in clarity or intelligibility can negatively impact the overall worship experience for our congregation.”

Depending on Sennheiser Evolution Wireless G3:

Real Life saw the potential of portable ministry campuses for its growing congregation early on. Before opening its newest UCF location in August, the church already had two other portable facilities that required set up and strike each week. When it came to expand again, Ramsey didn’t hesitate specifying Sennheiser equipment again since it had already proven its worthiness among the churches four other locations in and around Orlando.

“We really needed microphone system that we can come in, plug in and go,” says Ramsey. “The frequency coordination on the G3 wireless system is so simple, and it is the standard at all of our locations so any of our volunteers can have everything set up and running in a matter of minutes. We’ve never had wireless microphone issues at these portable facilities, and this is huge for us. Everything is rock solid.”

At all of its combined campuses, Real Life utilizes approximately 40 channels of G3 wireless systems, as well as accompanying in ear monitor (IEM) systems. Ramsey says Real Life will soon be integrating several Sennheiser SKM 2000 handheld wireless transmitters into its arsenal, coupled with Neumann KK 204, KK 205 and Sennheiser e965 microphone capsules. “As far as wireless mics are concerned, these capsules deliver the ultimate clarity we are looking for in our style of music, and enable the vocals to sit on top of the mix without a lot of work,” says Ramsey.

Sennheiser Wireless Systems Manager:

Sennheiser’s Wireless Systems Manager (WSM) software enables Real Life to access and monitor its wireless equipment via remote control. The production team is able to view mute status, battery life and other important parameters by utilizing WSM’s advanced software features. “We use WSM because most of our equipment is locked up in a rack and we don’t have immediate access to the hardware,” says Ramsey. “With the WSM software, we have so much control in the palm of our hands and without having to access the physical devices. When you are in a 100,000 square foot facility, that makes all the difference.”

With its eyes on the future and on the further development of its new UCF campus, Real Life has never looked back in its quest for outstanding audio: “For our church, the message is so important,” he says. “We want to glorify Christ in everything that we do, and we believe that audio is one of the primary methods for relaying that message. It doesn’t matter whether someone is tuning in on their cell phone, their iPad, or attending in person. We want the audio to hit the mark.”

The DSP ‘Brain’ of Brno: Symetrix Processing Massive Audio Installation at Leading Czech University

Brno University's main auditorium, one of the rooms served by SymNet processing

Distributor Audio Digital and systems integrator APS install Symetrix technology throughout new campus building.

Established in 1899, Brno University of Technology has evolved over the ensuing century to become one of the Czech Republic’s leading universities. Staff have consistently sought to match this cutting-edge reputation with high-end technology, and it was in this spirit that distributor Audio Digital and systems integrator APS recently provided the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Communications’ new complex with a system that harnesses the power of Symetrix audio processing.
 
The scale of the installation was truly immense and encompassed 12 lecture halls with capacities ranging from 75 to 200 seats, along with many other smaller lecture rooms. But the undoubted centrepiece of the project – and its most challenging aspect in acoustical terms – was a 300-capacity auditorium designed in the shape of a large sphere.
 
“The volume and acoustics of the room are everything but standard, and yet a perfect coverage and intelligibility had to be achieved,” says Michal Zeman of Audio Digital. No small feat – yet Zeman was always aware that a system based around Symetrix SymNet Edge DSP technology could get the job done.
 
Modular in nature, SymNet Edge provides both the 48-channel digital audio matrix required today and the ability to scale up in the future should the need arise. Consisting of three Edge units located around the auditorium and connected over a standard Ethernet network using an Audinate Dante bus, Edge’s decentralised structure allowed Audio Digital and APS to keep analogue cable runs to an absolute minimum.
 
The Symetrix DSP – which is integrated into the auditorium’s overall Cue control system – is also advantageous to the teaching staff, who do not necessarily have extensive operational skills. “The choice of Symetrix really paid off here, too, as on one hand it offers user-friendly features such as automixing, and on the other allows external access to every single parameter needed, so there were no limits in adjusting the Cue’s user interface to the needs of the users,” says Zeman.
 
Carefully finetuning the Symetrix system to optimise the acoustics, Zeman and collaborators deployed AFMG’s EASE software to produce a loudspeaker design based around TOA line arrays and Dynacord subwoofers. Amplification comes from APart Audio amplifiers, while wired and wireless microphones by TOA, Electro-Voice and MIPRO complete the core specification.
 
Symetrix technology is by no means restricted to the main auditorium, however: two of the other lecture rooms feature SymNet Solus 16 standalone DSP units, while audio in ten smaller spaces is driven by Zone Mix 761 devices.
 
Paying tribute to the “feature-richness and competitive price level” of the Symetrix DSP technology, Zeman says that it was “from the very beginning our first and only choice for the DSP ‘brain’. No other brand I have encountered currently comes even close to what Symetrix can offer.”

Christie Visual Display Technology Powers Princess Cruises’ Upgraded Emergency Response Center

Princess Cruises, one of the premiere cruise lines in the world, is now supported with Christie® visual display technologies in the company’s new cutting-edge Emergency Response Center in its Santa Clarita headquarters. The center features a huge video display wall composed of 105 Christie® MicroTiles®, measuring 7 feet high by 20 feet wide, and powered by the Christie TVC-1700 video wall processor, which can display up to 64 outputs from a variety of digital sources and devices. Installed under the guidance of AV integrator Pacific Video Products (PVP), Princess Cruises’ video wall monitors up to 10 content feeds which include charts, videos, live television broadcast, and ship models in any size, simultaneously. When activated, the center allows the emergency response team to effectively stay in audio and visual contact with any of its ships, with information that can quickly and easily be integrated, customized, recalled and shared from different locations and sources with high accuracy and reliability.

Princess Cruises is dedicated to providing a relaxing and invigorating escape, with fleets that host over a million passengers each year. Working closely with Pacific Video Products, it developed a PC-based monitoring solution using the Christie TVC-1700, a flexible, built-to-order display wall processor delivering exceptional graphical power and multiple input options with local applications, network-streamed desktops, and direct-connected DVI, RGB and video inputs for control room video walls of any size. The TVC-1700 is managed by the intuitive, multi-tiered, proprietary software Christie MASTERSuite™ which enables instant access to any source of visual information in the control room.

Compact, Reliable, High Resolution – Christie MicroTiles Have It All
Princess Cruises and Pacific Video Products chose Christie MicroTiles after comparing several other options. According to Bob Myers of PVP, there were a number of strict requirements and challenges involved in the project that made MicroTiles the perfect solution. Among them, the system needed to be simple, reliable, and able to fit into a limited space.

“The room is unique from a design stand point, requiring a system that is flexible and compact enough to maximize use of the shallow space. Thanks to the Christie MicroTiles’ compact size and custom pedestals we were also able to add two or three vertical rows of power strips against the wall and install six LCD displays, with a live television feed where the images can be pulled onto the large video wall,” recalled Bob Myers, manager, Presentation Systems, Pacific Video Products. “Since the MicroTiles extend into the room, we used black louvered side panels to provide a clean look and promote airflow to keep the system cool. We also placed openings in the ceiling above the display to provide relief for heat buildup and further promote airflow.”

Myers continued: “We spent many months researching and reviewing different options. When we met with Christie’s Ken Hartling and the company demonstrated their MicroTiles solutions, we knew we had found our solution. The images wowed the audience with how bright and sharp they were, from almost any angle. For Princess Cruises, where the safety of thousands of passengers is paramount during emergency situations no other display wall and video processor solution would do.”

Another factor was the seamless integration of images on the screen. Christie MicroTiles can be joined with only a 1 mm gap between each unit, so one sees a higher number of high resolution images simultaneously without thick borders. “In addition, harnessing the power of the Christie TVC-1700, we are able to see these images ‘anywhere’ on the wall, in any size, something that was impossible to do before with projectors,” noted Andrew Shand, fleet safety manager (Emergency Response), Princess Cruises.

An Emergency Center with Advanced Technology
“The deployment of Christie solutions at Princess Cruises provides a highly functional, highly adaptive Emergency Response Center that will meet our customer’s needs today, while also equipping them with the tools they need for solving tomorrow’s emergency situations,” said John Stark, senior director of Control Room Solutions at Christie. “By embracing forward-looking trends and using award-winning Christie MicroTiles’ high-resolution, high brightness digital display screens and the powerful Christie TVC-1700, Princess Cruises has developed a model for digital emergency response centers that is the envy of the industry.”

“The purpose of this room is to support our ships in emergency situations,” said Paul Debnam, vice president, Occupational Safety and Emergency Response, Princess Cruises. “We can stream video and electronic data from other locations and even display information from someone’s laptop onto our video wall. The MicroTiles’ narrow seams and bright, sharp images also allow us to view anything from text to detailed electronic navigation charts in the highest resolution. We have total flexibility with the information coming in and going out using the complete Christie video display wall system.”
