NEP Finalizes Acquisition of Global Television

Marriage of Two Leading TV Technical Production Experts Creates Worldwide Entertainment Powerhouse; Strengthens NEP’s Footprint in Australia and Asia

PITTSBURGH — Jan. 24, 2014 — NEP announced today that the company has closed on its acquisition of Australia’s Global Television from Catalyst Investment Managers. The completion of this transaction officially brings Global Television into NEP’s worldwide operations, uniting two of the world’s most experienced and successful television technical services companies.

NEP is one of the largest broadcast and live event service companies in the world, with operations across the United States, United Kingdom, and Brazil and supporting thousands of events annually around the world. Global Television, Australia’s largest provider of independent TV studios and OB services, is internationally recognized for its technical expertise in host broadcasting, and its partnerships with broadcasters and production companies have resulted in several major contracts including the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games and the 2014 G20 Summit in Brisbane.

With the acquisition, NEP adds Global Television’s top-tier fleet of outside broadcast and studio facilities to its worldwide pool of resources — raising NEP’s total facilities to more than 70 high-definition (HD) units; several HD flypacks; studios in Los Angeles, New York, London, Cardiff, Sydney, and Melbourne; thousands of plasma, LED, and projection video display solutions; and a large team of industry-leading engineering and technical experts.

“We are pleased to officially welcome Global Television into our worldwide network of brands. Global is a true service leader, and I am looking forward to working with them as they continue to grow their business,” said Kevin Rabbitt, CEO of NEP. “This is an exciting opportunity for all of us. As NEP continues to look for opportunities for expansion into new geographies, the addition of Global not only brings us to Australia, but provides a great launching point into Asia and other areas around the globe.”

Global Television will remain an independent entity based in Australia, operating under NEP management, led by Global CEO Keith Andrews and his executive team.

“We’re very excited to become a part of the NEP team. This outcome is terrific news for both NEP and Global’s clients, staff, and partners, because it will broaden and deepen the pool of expertise and technology available to them all,” said Andrews. “This is a powerful marriage of two companies with similar cultures and a shared commitment to provide exceptional service and lead technology innovation with the best teams in the business.”

Jünger Audio Celebrates Sales Success In China

As China celebrates the start of a New Year, dynamics specialist Jünger Audio is also marking an important event – the culmination of its most successful sales year in the country.

“Since opening a dedicated regional office in Beijing in 2010, we have seen our Chinese sales grow year on year,” says Jünger Audio CEO Peter Pörs. “However, 2013 was successful with sales exceeding our expectations. We shipped a wide range of audio processors which were delivered to a number of different Chinese broadcasters. 44 D*AP4 LM Digital Audio Processors went to GZTV, therefore our success was especially noticeable in the Guang Dong region where all three provincial and city TV stations are now using Jünger Audio products to control broadcast loudness.”

Pörs adds that Jünger Audio’s achievements in China are down to two key factors – having a permanent base in the country, which inspires customer confidence, and offering a range of high quality products that are renowned for their ability to deliver uncompromised audio loudness management.

“Our Beijing office is headed by Jian Gao, a Chinese national who understood both the business climate and our own industry,” he says. “Jian’s broadcast and pro audio experience, combined with her local knowledge, make a huge difference to how we are perceived by our Chinese customers. Having a local presence reassures our customers as they know they will be properly supported after they buy.”

Jünger Audio’s D*AP4 LM series has proved particularly popular in China because it gives users the processing quality and features offered by Jünger Audio’s flagship T*AP Television Audio Processors, but in a smaller 4 or 2 channel system. Incorporating Jünger Audio’s unique LEVEL MAGIC™ algorithm, the unit focuses on automatic and adaptive loudness management compliant with all current broadcast audio loudness recommendations including ITU.1770 Standards (revisions 1, 2 and 3) as well as recommended practices ATSC A/85 (2011/2013), ARIB TR-B32, Free TV OP-59, Portaria 354 and EBU R128.

Recent customers in China have included Guang Zhou TV, which has investing in 44 D*AP4 LM processors, making this one of the largest single orders to PRC in the company’s history. As the TV station of Guang Zhou city, GZTV is determined to ensure that its viewers receive the highest quality audio and it is therefore installing Jünger Audio’s loudness control throughout its playout chain and advertising servers.

Another prestigious Jünger Audio customer is Nan Fang TV Station, the second provincial terrestrial and satellite TV station in Guang Dong province. Nan Fang TV is now using D*AP4 LM processors and J*AM loudness logging software to control and monitor loudness quality on all eight of its TV channels.

In the same region, Guang Dong TV Station in Guang Zhou city has invested in 12 D*AP4 LM processors and six T*AP Television Audio Processors as part of a station upgrade to HD. These units have been installed on GDTV’s three HD channels and six SD channels, all of which will go on-air once the station completes its system upgrades.

Finally, major satellite TV station ShenZhen TV, based in Shen Zhen city, has recently started using Jünger Audio D*AP4 and J*AM loudness logging software to monitor and log its program loudness.

“Chinese broadcasters are now well aware of the importance of loudness control and are choosing Jünger Audio’s products to achieve it because they meet China’s demands for technical sophistication and audio quality,” Jian Gao says. “In recent months, Jünger Audio’s loudness control and Surround production tools have been used on some highly prestigious broadcasts – for example Shanghai Media Group’s Season One finale of The Chinese Idol, which was broadcast in August 2013; all Guang Dong TV’s New Year’s Eve concerts since 2012 and ZITV’s Voice of China, including the Season 2 Finale in 2013 where Jünger Audio’s M*AP processor was used as the Dolby surround signal monitor control. That broadcast also featured two T*AP units, which were used for Dolby E encoding from ZITV’s HD OB Van where they performed beautifully.”

Trevor Horn’s Band to Perform Live at MPG Awards 2014


Renowned producer, musician and songwriter Trevor Horn has revealed his plans to perform live at next month’s Music Producers Guild Awards in London – and that he will be joined on stage by some ‘special guests’.

Horn, who is attending the event to receive the Outstanding Contribution to UK Music Award, will perform as part of the supergroup Producers, the band he established in 2006 with former 10CC musician Lol Crème, award-winning engineer and producer Stephen Lipson and drummer Ash Soan. This exciting collection of extraordinarily highly regarded producers and artists have scored over 200 hit singles and albums, including their own debut album Made in Basing Street, which was released in 2012.

Music Producers Guild Chairman Steve Levine says: “A live performance by Producers is quite a coup for the MPG and we’re really thrilled that guests attending our 2014 Awards ceremony will have the opportunity to witness this unique performance. The MPG Awards are always a popular event on the music industry calendar because they are such a joyful celebration of the UK’s recording talent, but when you get the chance to see a supergroup play live as well, you just know it’s going to be a brilliant night.”

The MPG is presenting Trevor Horn with the PPL-sponsored Outstanding Contribution to UK Music Award in recognition of a remarkable career that has spanned more than three decades. The award he will receive from the MPG acknowledges those who have made a significant contribution over a long period of time to the success of the UK music recording industry.

Described variously as ‘unashamedly an exhibitionist’, an ‘architect of sound’ and a producer whose work is linked by a common theme of excellence, Horn has been responsible for numerous hits for artists such as ABC, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Grace Jones and Robbie Williams. He first achieved success as an artist with The Buggles, Yes and Art of Noise, but eventually turned to production and song writing where he established a reputation for pushing the boundaries of music production. During the early 1980s he set up Sarm Studios in London and also ZTT Records and music publishing company Perfect Songs.

Trevor Horn will be presented with his award at the MPG’s 2014 Awards Ceremony, which takes place on February 13th at the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel in London. Tickets for the event are available by emailing event organiser, Joe Edwards. Email: joe@ilikethesoundofthat.com

TRANSAUDIO GROUP TO DEBUT THE BOCK IFET CONDENSER AT WINTER NAMM

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – JANUARY 2014: World renowned manufacturing engineer David Bock has yet again captured the unmistakable tone of a cherished vintage microphone in a thoroughly modern design. This time it’s the Bock iFet phantom-powered condenser, which possesses the sonic soul of a classic fet47 mic of yesteryear plus more modern specifications, including deeper bass and higher highs. That would have been accomplishment enough, but Bock didn’t stop there. The iFet also features two completely separate amplifier circuits. The first circuit uses one FET and four transformers to beautifully capture high-SPL sources, such as drums and electric guitar. The second circuit uses one FET only and is ideally suited for quieter sources, such as voice. The two-circuit design effectively doubles the size of the Bock iFet’s sonic palette.

“There is a real art and science to designing and manufacturing a modern microphone with a specific sound, that embodies the sonic characteristics of a loved classic vintage microphone,” said Brad Lunde, president of TransAudio Group, the U.S. distributor of Bock’s entire line of high-end studio microphones. “David Bock understands the fundamentals and nuances of microphone design with tremendous depth, and he is passionate about building great microphones that will stand the test of time in the studio. With its dual-circuitry design, the Bock iFet is a great studio vocal mic – with all of the depth, character, and authenticity you would find in a vintage studio condenser many times the iFet’s price – and also a great studio high SPL input instrument and kick drum microphone. That should make it especially appealing to individuals who are on a budget yet are unwilling to fall short of perfection.”

The Bock iFet Microphone is now shipping.

US-MSRP: $2,150.00

ABOUT TRANSAUDIO GROUP TransAudio Group, founded by industry veteran Brad Lunde, has quickly become the premier U.S. importer/distributor and/or U.S. sales and marketing representative for high-end audio. Success hinges on TransAudio providing dealers and end users with a higher standard of product expertise and support far beyond the norm.www.transaudiogroup.com

JESSUP, MARYLAND – JANUARY 2014: API will introduce two new members of its acclaimed 500-series modular signal processing line at the 2014 NAMM Show: the 505 DI direct input and the 565 filter bank. Both modules possess API’s legendary sound and fit all 500-series chassis, including the API Lunchbox® and the API 1608 small-format analog console.

The 505 DI includes gain control, adjustable tone control, a bright switch, a 20dB pad, switchable 100/400k Ohm load impedance, and Thru connectivity. Like the console-based API 205L, the 505 DI is specifically designed to accept a guitar, bass or keyboard direct input while minimizing any loading effect on Hi-Z instrument pickups

The 565 Filter Bank includes a sweepable low-pass filter (500Hz to 20kHz, -12 or -18dB slope), a sweepable high-pass filter (20Hz to 400Hz, -6 or -12dB slope), and a variable notch filter (fully sweepable between 20Hz and 20kHz). The 565 circuits are true to the musical filters of the famed 215 module found in large format API consoles.

Noted Larry Droppa, president of API Audio, “Since it’s inception, the API 500 Series has dominated the ever-growing group of 500 Series products. At API, we innovate by design and keep delivering modules that outperform the competition and continue to give our end users the sound and performance they’ve come to expect from API. Both of these new modules address a specific need while keeping the integrity of the API module product line.”

MSRPs: 505 DI and the 565 Filter Bank $595.00 each
