Carl Tatz Design Propels Fly By West to New Heights

- Nashville engineer/producer Derek West chooses Carl Tatz Design a second time to create his stunning new personal studio -

Nashville, TN: Having moved his family into a more spacious home in a bucolic country setting outside of metro Nashville, engineer/producer Derek West once again chose Carl Tatz Design LLC, the TEC Award-winning studio designer, to create this new ambitious personal studio, known as “Fly By West.” This very unique facility was retrofitted into a large unused boat garage with unusually high ceilings.

Where West’s former studio consisted of a compact control room and booth, the new studio features a full-sized custom application of the CTD MixRoom™ concept, which pairs the Carl Tatz Signature Series™ acoustic modules by Auralex® with the unrivaled accuracy and performance of the PhantomFocus™ System (PFS™) monitor tuning protocol.

The Fly By West tracking room’s multi-angled twenty-foot high knotty pine, tongue-in-groove ceilings are shared with a multi-purpose loft that is reached via a wrought iron spiral staircase. The loft area can be used by out-of-town clients for stay-over projects and offers great acoustic variety when tracking. The uniquely positioned overdub booths at the control room’s rear attest to West’s preferred M.O.

“The work that Carl did this time to create our new studio can be best described as transformational. With his design expertise we were able to take an old boat garage and transform it into a space that combines acoustic recording excellence, creative design, functional workflow, and of course, with the PhantomFocus System, a control room that competes sonically with any in the world,” states Fly By West owner Derek West. “I could not be happier with the studio – and the responses I get from client after client are not only complimentary about the space and sound, but more importantly, they tell us that ‘this is a space that I want to work in again.’”

A.T. Still University Utilizes 175-Inch, 16:9 Aspect Ratio Severtson Screens SēVision 3D GX Projection Screen for New Virtual Anatomy Lab

(left-right) John Olson, Ph.D. (A.T. Still University); Jeremy Greene, B.S. (Lab Tech; A.T. Still University); Anna Campbell, Ph.D. (A.T. Still University); Kirk Severtson (Severtson Screens COO); "The Skull"; Dan Maxwell (Severtson Screens VP Cinema Sales); Jennifer Schaal (Arizona State University Anatomy Intern); Jay Crutchfield MD FACS (A.T. Still University); Ron Severtson (Severtson Screens president/CEO).

Mesa, Ariz., Feb. 24, 2014 – Prosthetic human bodies have taken a backseat and actual human cadavers now have competition as medical students at Mesa, Ariz.-based A.T. Still University (ATSU) can now sit in a purpose-designed $500,000 classroom and have practical “virtual” contact with simulated human anatomy. This educational practice is now possible thanks in part to a recently installed 175-inch, 16:9 aspect ratio Severtson Screens motorized SēVision 3D GX projection screen in ATSU’s School of Osteopathic Medicine’s (ATSU-SOMA) new state-of-the-art Virtual Anatomy Lab.

Available since November 2013, both university officials and students alike say that the class is nearly as lifelike as actually standing over and performing skilled medical procedures on human cadavers as pieces of the human anatomy are dissected and rotated in larger than life 3D modeling.

“Our 56-seat lab is the first of its kind in Arizona, and only one of a handful of similar labs nationwide,” explained Jay Crutchfield, MD, assistant professor and anatomy director, ATSU-SOMA. “The computer systems and dual state-of-the-art computer software we utilize offer students, as well as participants in continuing education conferences, an incredible 3D visual of the human anatomy without the drawbacks and limitations of working on human flesh that, once altered via dissection by an instructor or student, can’t be put back together and studied again.”

Crutchfield added that with such sophisticated software being utilized in such a unique atmosphere, A.T. Still University’s video requirements were quite demanding as the visual reproduction of the BodyViz, Cyber-Anatomy, 4DAnatomy, and VH Dissector software is crucial in this environment and so the video equipment must be state-of-the-art, as well.

“Poor video reproduction would render the software, and the program itself, useless for our students and guests,” Crutchfield continued. “This is not a home theater, company boardroom, museum, or cinema where the lights will go completely dark and the only visual is the screen. Ambient light from the hallway, the students’ and instructor’s computer monitors, as well as periodically dimmed overhead lighting made us realize that we needed a projection screen that could not only reproduce the necessary 3D imagery precisely, but also take into account the limitations of the room itself. The Severtson Screens SēVision 3D GX reproduces the 3D imagery from the Panasonic PT-DZ870E DLP™ 3D projector incredibly, even when ambient light is present. It is exactly what we needed for this program.”

Severtson Screens SēVision 3D GX offers PristiVue© technology, a revolutionary 3D coating on the screen material, which made it the perfect solution for ATSU-SOMA’s lab’s requirements.

“Proudly ‘Made in the USA’, the Severtson SēVision 3D GX projection screen that is in use in A.T. Still’s virtual anatomy lab provides the ultimate 3D experience by giving instructors the flexibility to show their projections in 2D or passive 3D formats, enhancing the students’ experience while keeping costs down,” said Kirk Severtson, Severtson Screens COO. “We are proud of the way our screen technology contributes to the education of healthcare students here in Arizona.”

According to the university, students will still take standard anatomy courses using real cadavers as nothing can truly replace working with an actual human body. However, according to university officials, simultaneously studying in the virtual anatomy lab will allow students to replace some the monotony of “lost time” preparing cadavers for course work whereas in the virtual lab, they immediately begin studying the human anatomy. Also, they added, working virtually, in some instances, allows students to better see different parts of the human body quickly and more clearly versus a cadaver.

A.T. Still University (www.atsu.edu) is the original founding institution of osteopathic healthcare, established in 1892 by Andrew Taylor Still. As a leading health sciences university, ATSU is comprised of two campuses (Kirksville, Mo., and Mesa, Ariz.) on more than 200 acres with six prestigious schools. Learning environments include residential and online medical degrees as well as community-based partnerships worldwide. ATSU has more than 700 employees dedicated to its not-for-profit mission and an average annual enrollment of over 3,100 students from 35 countries.

Since 1986 with its three production facilities in Arizona and its state-of-the-art robotic application system, Severtson Corp. continues to be a global leader in innovation and quality for home theater, education, commercial, and cinema applications worldwide.

With a SunBriteTV Outdoor Television, the Perfect Venue For Any Awards Party is Your Patio

THOUSAND OAKS, California, February 24, 2014 — A SunBriteTV outdoor television won’t be flaunting designer dresses on the red carpet, but it’s certain to be the center of attention at any awards party! SunBriteTVs are fully weatherproof and thanks to bright anti-glare HD screens, are sure to shine bright like a Hollywood starlet any time of day or night—they make backyard parties more distinctive, dynamic and fun!

“Outdoor entertaining and backyard rooms have become wildly popular thanks to homeowners who love to live and entertain outside,” said Tom Dixon, VP of Marketing, SunBriteTV. “SunBriteTV’s outdoor televisions were designed for big TV events like springtime awards shows that bring family and friends together in great weather!”

SunBriteTVs are clear winners when compared to indoor televisions in outdoor areas. Specialized gaskets and insulated electronics seal out moisture and remove common safety hazards associated with using electronics outdoors. Further, outdoor TVs remove the hassle of wheeling out and setting up an indoor TV outside.

“When there’s so much heavy lifting involved, cables to connect and calibrations to make, hauling an indoor TV outside for every event isn’t worth the time,” said Dixon. “Entertaining is all about enjoying the moment, not ruining it with extra stress!”

All models withstand temperatures from -24°F to 122°F and completely resist rain, humidity, salt corrosion, dust, and insects.

Every SunBriteTV includes a two-year warranty, a weatherproof remote, and 20 watt built-in or detachable speakers. Optional accessories include a variety of weatherproof wall-, ceiling-, or deck pole-mount installation solutions, wireless HD transceivers and media box enclosures.

GatorVision Enhances University of Florida In-Venue Sports Production with Tightrope ZEPLAY

Slo-mo instant replay system offers school a robust feature set, reliable performance and affordable price point for upgraded control room

ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA, February 24, 2014GatorVision is the University of Florida athletic department’s broadcast and production initiative, handling live and on-demand event streaming and in-venue, game day coverage as part of its operation. The recently-built control room, located in the College of Journalism and Communications building on campus, houses a full complement of cutting-edge production gear suited to both outside broadcasts and in-venue content.

For in-venue productions, Tightrope Media Systems is helping the GatorVision production team score points with fans at football, basketball, volleyball and gymnastic events. The control room includes two of its ZEPLAY slo-mo instant replay systems to inject added excitement into game day action via multi-angle replays, on-the-fly highlight packages and more.

Brad Noblitt, director of engineering for University of Florida’s College of Journalism and Communications, states ease of use and flexibility as two reasons for choosing ZEPLAY over competitive solutions. Noblitt has assigned a seasoned operator of a well-known instant replay brand to operate the primary system. That operator simultaneously trains students to run the second ZEPLAY.

“The learning curve on ZEPLAY is not nearly as steep as competing products,” said Noblitt. “We have a lot of student involvement at GatorVision, being part of the College of Journalism and Communications. Our primary operator teaches students how to use ZEPLAY keystroke by keystroke. Within an hour, the student can really understand the concept of the workflow.”

Noblitt also feels that ZEPLAY offers the best price to feature set ratio of slo-mo instant replay systems available.

“This gives us a true four-by-four system,” said Noblitt, referring to its four input and four output configuration. “ZEPLAY offers a lot of flexibility based on the project size and budget. We rely heavily on the system for the fan experience, and I am astounded by how quickly we can produce multiple replays. We can fire off a replay even as our opponent heads back down the basketball court. It is the meat and potatoes of our system.”

The GatorVision team further benefits from a built-in multiviewer that provides operators with a clear visual tool to monitor the various camera angles. According to Noblitt, the ZEPLAYS never stop recording, which compel camera operators to keep shooting. This ultimately creates exceptional value in terms of replay content.

Noblitt adds that the latest software release has simplified how his team can edit, trim and build packages for game highlights. Additionally, the GatorVision team creates “melts” after every game for later use, with direct playout to our XDCam disc or as an exported .mov file(s). This highlights the open, non-proprietary nature of ZEPLAY.

These features combined add even more to the educational experience for College of Journalism and Communications students interested in learning the system.

“We can easily set up a simulated game by taking our four camera feeds from the previous game, and using one of our ZEPLAY units to playback the game through our switcher,” he said. “This helps us teach our students how to direct, how to TD and how to do replays offline. If there is a problem we can hit stop, discuss what went wrong, back up a few plays and try it a different way. We built that functionality into GatorVision because it is a teaching facility. ZEPLAY offers a teaching tool to get students up to speed with true hands-on experience.”

Hand Held Audio Reports Increasing Demand for HARMAN’s AKG DMS700 Digital Wireless System

LONDON, United Kingdom – Radio microphone and in-ear monitor specialist supplier, Hand Held Audio, is finding an increasing demand for AKG’s DMS700 digital wireless system, particularly for applications where securely encrypted audio is required or desired, according to director Mick Shepherd. Hand Held Audio purchased its AKG systems through Sound Technology, AKG’s UK and ROI distributor.

Recent rentals include a large system to a major London hotel for a 2-day event, staged by a major multi-national investment corporation. The 12-way AKG system comprised three DPT700 digital wireless bodypack transmitters, with CK77 lavalier microphone, and a DHT700 digital wireless handheld transmitter with D7 dynamic capsule; for a separate room they also supplied a further eight DPT700 with CK77.

“The systems were racked with AKG power hubs and antenna distribution, with the SRA-2W remote antennae,” reports Shepherd. “The encryption facility on the DMS700 was key on this occasion.”

Around the same time they supplied a 6-way system to another client, to cover a major flagship opening of a new corporate HQ in Manchester. Again, the complement of mics included six DHT700 handheld transmitters with D7 dynamic capsules — and again it was the encryption facility that proved essential.

Hand Held then fulfilled an order for a 6-way AKG system (comprising three DPT700 with CK77, and three DHT700 with D7) — racked with power and antenna distribution to a leading London sustainable events venue to supplement the in-house facilities there.

And finally, they rounded off the year by supplying a landmark West End London theatre with a 2-way AKG system (comprising two DHT700 with D7, and a DSR700 with two SRA-2W remote antennae) for a charity pantomime production.

AKG’s DMS700 system is designed to deliver premium digital audio quality and quick-and-easy operation within even the most crowded radio environment, while the state-of-the-art 512-bit audio encryption offers the highest security available for confidential meeting environments. And this security was essential for corporate blue chip usage.

Summing up AKG’s success, Mick Shepherd commented, “Over the last 12 months we’ve experienced steadily increasing demand for encrypted radio mic systems. The AKG DMS700 system not only has excellent 512-bit encryption but also a switching bandwidth of 150 MHz. This makes it a very flexible option in terms of frequency availability and licensing, in crowded RF environments.”

DPA Microphones Brings the Glitz of Gold to ProLight + Sound 2014

At Prolight + Sound 2014 (Booth 8:C71), DPA Microphones will be focusing attention on its range of high quality microphones for the live stage.

The company’s award-winning d:facto™ Vocal Microphone will be sporting new grids with gold and nickel finishes – ideal accessories for vocalists who want added sparkle for their onstage performances.

“We saw a demand in the market to attain the d:facto sound with more than just the traditional black grids,” says Christian Poulsen, CEO of DPA Microphones. “These grids provide the solution by bringing an exciting new visual dimension to a microphone that is already internationally acclaimed for its great sound.”

The new grids are available as accessories to existing d:facto solutions and are delivered as metal grids with foam and pop screen. Additionally, the nickel option matches the finish available on the Sennheiser 2000, 5200 and 9000 wireless mic systems and comes complete with capsule and corresponding adapters.

With a true studio sound for the live stage, the d:facto Vocal Microphone offers an extraordinarily natural sound with high separation and extreme SPL handling, giving users unlimited possibilities for their performances. In addition to use with the wired DPA handle, the d:facto provides singers and engineers with the added benefit of a state-of-the-art adapter system, which allows for seamless integration with many professional wireless systems.

DPA will also be using the ProLight + Sound platform to showcase its hugely popular range of d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphones.

Despite its tiny, discreet size and lightweight design, the DPA d:vote clip mic is rugged and stable as it features a versatile and extendable gooseneck, sturdy shock mount and a detachable cable, making it perfectly suited to the rigors of touring and live performance. As it was intended for fast-paced settings, the mic can easily be unclipped and repositioned or moved to another instrument with only one hand. Additionally, the d:vote’s microphone mounting system is designed to be extremely gentle, never marring the finish of an instrument.

On show for the first time in Europe will be DPA’s new d:vote 4099 Rock Touring Kits, which give users a choice between a four-piece or 10-piece Peli case package. The company has also released two similar Classic Touring Kits for classical musicians.

“Our d:vote microphones have always been popular with classical musicians because they deliver such fantastic sound and allow musicians to capture the true sound of their instruments,” Christian Poulsen says. “However, in recent years we’ve noticed a steady increase in sales to rock bands such as Metallica, D-A-D and Paramore, who have experienced how the DPA sound enhances their performance. With our Rock Touring Kits we are making the sound engineer’s task so much easier.”

Rock and classical musicians have embraced d:vote instruments microphones because they are so small and discreet, and because they come with an exceptional range of adapters. The 10-piece kit includes 10 d:vote microphones, 10 adapters and 25 holders for different instruments adjusted to either rock or classic applications. The four-piece kit includes four d:vote microphones, four adapters and 10 holders.

“With other brands, engineers usually have to use tape to get the mics to stay in place in certain areas that prove to be the best placements. d:vote has clips for all instruments and, with the new kits, engineers have an ingenious solution,” Christian Poulsen says.

DPA will enhance its Prolight + Sound 2014 line-up by showing its superior d:dicate™ Recording Microphone range, which delivers high quality audio across many applications including live sound for touring and installation purposes. Now incorporating the new modular MMC4018 Supercardioid Capsule, the well-known MMC4007 High-SPL Omnidirectional Capsule (now re-launched for modular use) and the modular 4000 and 2000 microphones, the d:dicate range allows users to combine various capsules with DPA’s state-of-the-art preamps for extra versatility. These preamps include the A, which is a Class A transformerless design; the B, a low cut and high boost filter version; the compact C option for visual unobtrusive miking; and the new modular MMP-E active cable preamp for hanging or table applications. An MMP-F modular boom pole is available for podium or floor stand use of the d:dicate capsules.

Continuing its tradition of offering exhibition visitors even more bang for their bucks, DPA is once again running a daily draw at ProLight + Sound 2014, with the opportunity for a lucky person to win a DPA microphone (d:vote™ or d:fine™ single-ear headset). To enter, all visitors have to do is visit the DPA booth during the day, collect a special pin and then return at 5 pm for the draw.
