Sennheiser’s K-Array Anakonda Loudspeaker Brings Extraordinary Sound and Flexibility to Musical Instrument Museum (MIM) Music Theater

Anakonda is the Perfect Front-Fill Solution for 300-Seat Music Theater That Features Diverse Artistic Performances and Exquisite Acoustics

Phoenix, AZ, February 26, 2014: Phoenix’ Musical Instrument Museum (MIM) is home to nearly 15,000 instruments and objects from all over the world, providing a unique museum experience for guests of all ages. The museum features an exquisite, 300-seat music theater that features performances from a diverse range of artists — including well known, nationally touring musical acts as well as traditional and eclectic acts from every corner of the globe. Designed and constructed as an intimate, world-class concert hall offering comfortable seating and state of the art acoustics, the theater hosted 193 concerts last year and recently was the first venue in Arizona to install the new K-array Anakonda speaker solution from Sennheiser.

The K-array Anakonda speaker system was installed directly across the edge of the stage as a front fill solution, providing greater definition and sonic clarity to the first several rows. The new installation helps the theater deliver an unparalleled listening experience for all its patrons no matter where they are seated, ensuring even sound dispersion and intelligibility.

“Our former front fills were point source, mounted just below the stage,” comments Ted Greenbaum, music theater manager. “There wasn’t even coverage and these were in the more expensive seats. So when Jerry Delgado of Sennheiser brought the Anakonda in for us to test, it was phenomenal.” “Our main PA system is built into the shell and each side is pretty far away from the center of the audience and in the first couple of rows intelligibility and imaging is an issue,” explains Jim Zick, technical manager for the Theater. “When Sennheiser brought in the Anakonda, which sounded great and was aesthetically attractive, I thought it would be a perfect solution to set this up right across the front of the stage.”

Six Anakonda loudspeakers were daisy chained at the edge of the stage and powered by a single K-array KA40 amplifier complete with DSP control. The system made its debut one evening as renowned country singer/songwriter Suzy Bogguss sang for 300 enthralled fans. “It was phenomenal,” Greenbaum recalls. “After that night, we got several emails from audience members saying it was the best sound they ever heard. Before, the front fill was lacking and the Anakonda really came through as a great solution — it was the final piece to the puzzle.”

Anakonda: Astounding intelligibility, flexibility:

In addition to theaters, the Anakonda is a perfect solution for a range of indoor or outdoors installations. Since each speaker element is bendable, the Anakonda can be wrapped around poles, columns, or mounted to curved or otherwise uneven surfaces. Speakers are available in 6′ lengths, and up to 16 combined elements can be linked and powered from a KA40 amplifier using the Anakonda’s integrated NL4 connectors. The speaker’s dedicated presets support a variety of configurations, including both standalone and combination use with K-array KMT Series subwoofers.

The Anakonda, which is priced at $859.95, is available exclusively in the U.S. through authorized Sennheiser dealers.

Thunder Audio Storms Into 2014 With K2

Prominent Midwest-based SR provider takes delivery of its first L-ACOUSTICS system

LIVONIA, Michigan — Fresh back from the 25th annual Pollstar Awards in Nashville, where they were nominated for “Sound Company of the Year,” Thunder Audio President Tony Villarreal and Vice President Paul Owen proudly announce that they have now officially taken delivery of their company’s first L-ACOUSTICS system, the new K2.

Comprised of 36 K2 and six KARA variable curvature WST® line source elements, eight K1-SB and 18 SB28 subs, six ARCS II constant curvature enclosures and 10 LA-RAK touring racks — each housing three LA8 amplified controllers — the sound reinforcement provider’s recent purchase marks one of the very first K2 systems sold in the U.S.

Thunder Audio’s company principals made the decision to join the L-ACOUSTICS family after critically listening to K2 late last year at the manufacturer’s corporate headquarters in Marcoussis, France. Fully aware of the impact that L-ACOUSTICS’ larger K1 system has had on the festival and touring industries, both Villarreal and Owen are equally optimistic about K2′s potential.

“In the past, we’ve always purchased large-scale systems based on the requirements dictated by a specific tour or application,” notes Owen. “This is the first time, however, that we’ve taken delivery of a product purely from the standpoint of feeling in our gut that it will be a success. Given the overwhelming reputation of K1 — as well as the more than 20-year legacy of K2′s predecessor, V-DOSC — we knew that getting in on the ground floor of this new system with such a stellar pedigree was absolutely the right choice for us and our client base.”

“With its compact profile, surprisingly light weight and exceptional horsepower, K2 is perfect for so many of our customers — from corporate to touring to theatrical,” agrees Villarreal. “And, of course, the sound is absolutely phenomenal. We A/B-ed it with the other four systems in our inventory and felt that it shined above and beyond anything else. We really have a sense that this is very quickly going to become the number one requested box on the market, and we’re so confident in that fact that we’ve already put in a purchase order for an additional 48 K2 for early next year, which is about the soonest we can get more seeing how popular they are right now!”

According to the two company principals, Thunder Audio is ultimately hoping to set its sights on K1 ownership as well. “In addition to being terrific as a standalone system, K2 is also a great stepping stone for us potentially getting into K1,” Owen describes. “It would make a lot of sense for us to be able to repurpose our K2 arrays as side hangs on a stadium-sized rig, which is one of the big reasons that we began looking into it in the first place. We’ve had some prior clients that have requested L-ACOUSTICS in the past, and with K2 — and eventually K1, perhaps — we’ll be in a position to give them both the service that has been our hallmark and the systems that they’re looking for.”

Villarreal sums things up by adding, “We feel that we’ve definitely made a wise investment here. The demand for the product is strong and the support we’ve received from L-ACOUSTICS has been fantastic. It’s truly a winning combination.”

DiGiCo Sweeps the GRAMMY® Awards

ATK Audiotek deploys numerous SD Series consoles for “Music’s Biggest Night”

LOS ANGELES — Southern California-based live event sound, equipment rental and broadcast audio production specialist ATK Audiotek recently acquired a slew of DiGiCo digital consoles, immediately putting them to work on the 56th annual GRAMMY® Awards telecast in Los Angeles in late January. This is the third consecutive year that ATK has relied on DiGiCo consoles for the production of “Music’s Biggest Night,” with this year’s show marking the very first outing for the company’s latest purchases.

ATK, the audio production provider for the Recording Academy’s annual music celebration since the telecast permanently relocated to the Staples Center in downtown L.A. fourteen years ago, made the switch to DiGiCo consoles in 2012. This year, the console complement included an SD10 for Mikael Stewart, FOH production mixer and ATK’s vice president of special events, plus an SD7 for Ron Reaves, FOH music mixer, seated alongside Stewart.

“Everybody who comes through the GRAMMYs leaves happy, and all I use is the onboard processing,” says Reaves. “But my partner in crime at the GRAMMYs, Mikael Stewart, uses the Waves plugins quite extensively. He mixes all the dialog and the production elements, so he makes use of the DNS plugin on some of the podium micas.” Stewart, whose console was directly connected to a DiGiCo SoundGrid server, used the Waves Dialog Noise Suppression plugin to reduce the room regeneration coming back in to the microphones and also made use of the Waves C6 Multiband Compressor.

Tom Pesa, the A stage monitor engineer, and Michael Parker, monitor engineer for the B stage, each mixed on an SD7 with a redundant engine. This year, for the first time, an SD8-24 — supplied by Hi-Tech Audio for the occasion — was positioned backstage at A2 world, and that enabled an assistant engineer to more efficiently monitor signal distribution throughout the venue.

As in previous years, Parker and Pesa each accessed common head amps in the four SD-Racks positioned backstage. But this year, in another first, two SD-Racks were added in parallel in order to provide Reaves with discrete preamp control at FOH. “Those were running MADI to his console. Staying at 48 kHz, we got an entire rack down one MADI cable instead of two,” says Jeff Peterson, ATK’s system designer. A further four SD-Racks were dedicated to outputs. ATK’s recent purchase was comprised of six consoles — two SD10s, two SD7s and two SD5s — plus 14 SD-Racks.

ATK was not the only company utilizing DiGiCo equipment at the GRAMMY Awards show. Outside the venue, in the Music Mix Mobile (M3) Eclipse truck, which provides the 5.1 surround music mix for the broadcast, Joel Singer, engineer-in-charge and M3 company partner, made use of a DiGiGrid MGO dual-port optical MADI interface and SoundGrid SGS-1 Server One. The setup enabled co-broadcast music mixers John Harris and Eric Schilling to insert Waves Renaissance Vox and DeEsser as well as CLA-76 and SSL Compressor plugins on the truck’s console and Pro Tools system.

About DiGiCo
DiGiCo is a UK-based manufacturer of some of the world’s most popular, successful and groundbreaking digital mixing consoles for the live, theatre, broadcast and post production industries and is exclusively distributed in the U.S. by Group One Ltd. of Farmingdale, New York.

Rob Mailman Finds Supernatural Success in DiGiCo’s SD5

Veteran analog stalwart makes the jump to digital during Santana’s Las Vegas residency at House of Blues Mandalay Bay

LAS VEGAS, NV — Remember the old sound guy adage about knowing what all the knobs and buttons do? As the industry increasingly moves in a digital direction depending more on touch screens than faders and on menus and layers instead of every function being at one’s fingertips, mix engineers like Rob Mailman — who need to move fast and are accustomed to the dedicated control of analog — are searching for digital consoles that offer ease-of-navigation as well as outstanding sound quality. And like Mailman, who has now officially made the move to a DiGiCo SD5, those engineers are increasingly turning to DiGiCo citing the “analog-ness” of the SD interface. more

BenQ’s New Portable GP20 Ultra-Lite LED Projector Is Now Shipping in North America

Perfect for Home, Office, or Edutainment, the Cloud Projector Supports MHL-Equipped Smart Devices for Optimized Mobile Content Delivery

COSTA MESA, Calif. — Feb. 27, 2014 — BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions, today announced the availability of the latest addition to its popular mini projector series: the BenQ Ultra-Lite GP20, which was introduced at the 2014 International CES. Designed to provide enjoyment anywhere in the home or enhance presentations in the office or classroom, the easy-to-use, portable GP20 brings higher brightness and Colorific(TM) image quality to the mini projector series. In addition, it introduces connectivity features such as mobile high-definition link (MHL) for wireless cloud content streaming and PC-free multimedia connectivity.

Building on the success of the BenQ Joybee GP2, the GP20 offers the perfect balance of size and performance. While larger than the palm-sized GP2 Projector, the GP20 maintains its portability while offering a higher brightness of 700 ANSI lumens and native WXGA (1280×800) resolution, with support for resolutions up to UXGA (1600×1200). With new features including mirroring for MHL-equipped devices, the GP20 enables easy notebook PC, cable, console gaming, or smart device connection for transferring small-screen content directly to the projector from any portable device.

In addition, the GP20 offers simple wireless streaming from MHL-compatible devices such as the Roku and Chromecast players, enabling users to enjoy cloud content from popular services such as Netflix, Hulu, Aereo, and more with great ease. The PC 3D-ready GP20 allows users to share HD-quality movies, videos, photos, games, and presentations on a wall or video screen, projecting up to a 10-foot diagonal image at 10 feet from the wall. For added convenience, audio can be played through the unit’s two built-in 3-W SRS speakers or through external speakers via the audio out port.

The GP20 is packed with multimedia connectivity, including USB and SD card viewers and a document viewer for Microsoft Office and PDF documents. A plug-and-play USB feature allows for a PC-less experience. Users simply save content to a USB thumb drive, plug the drive into the projector, and project the content without the need for a PC or file conversion. In addition, a USB file transfer function lets users store their multimedia files to the unit’s 2GB on-board memory.

Based on high-efficiency 3LED illumination and DLP(R) projection technology, the GP20 Projector is designed to produce exceptional Colorific picture quality, providing users with crisp, accurate and long-lasting color without relying on traditional projection lamps. This allows users to focus on their content without worrying about issues such as decreasing brightness, color fading, or the expense of lamp replacement.

“The GP20 brings a host of new capabilities for an exceptional viewing experience, whether you are entertaining the family at home or making a presentation in the office,” said Bob Wudeck, Associate Vice President, Strategy and Business Development at BenQ America Corp. “In addition to its portability and increased brightness, the GP20 offers an intuitive interface and the ability to enjoy cloud-based content without hassle. All of this is complemented by an elegant design and an enhanced remote to simplify the control experience.”

The BenQ Ultra-Lite GP20 is available now at $799. Information on the GP20 and the full line of BenQ products is available at http://www.BenQ.com.

New bright yet budget-conscious commercial-grade projector launched by Digital Projection

Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, announces the E-Vision WXGA 6500, a new addition to the company’s popular E-Vision series. DPI’s existing high-brightness, high-value E-Vision projection line has seen continued success within the corporate AV and house of worship communities, and the new 7,000 lumen 6500 display further diversifies the options within. The E-Vision WXGA 6500 enlists the same wide array of lens options, user swappable color wheels and advanced color controls that have made the E-Vision 7000 an integral AV solution. With an MSRP of $4,995 plus lens, the new E-Vision WXGA 6500 will commence shipping in March, 2014.

The E-Vision 6500 delivers a compelling imaging solution for lecture halls, conference venues, houses of worship, corporate auditoriums and boardrooms, digital signage, and any other application needing bright, accurate imagery at a remarkably accessible price point. With a chassis weight of less than 46 pounds, the powerful yet lightweight dual-lamp E-Vision 6500 utilizes the latest in Texas Instruments’ dark metal DLP™ technology. Similar to the E-Vision 7000, the 6500 delivers core 3D functionality. Unlike DPI’s existing E-Vision 7000 displays, the E-Vision WXGA 6500 is housed in a sleek, streamlined and easily installed plastic cabinet.

DPI originally launched the E-Vision series of displays at InfoComm 2011, and has aggressively moved to expand the series to enable even more applications. Years of success in high ambient light commercial venues and houses of worship ensure the newly-launched E-Vision WXGA 6500 will continue the expansion of the E-Vision series throughout a wide variety of medium-large screen applications. A variety of fixed and zoom lens options give the E-Vision WXGA 6500 a flexible throw ratio range of .8:1 – 8.74:1. Two swappable color wheels allow the integrator or the end user to easily select and install the color wheel that provides the best balance of lumens and color depth to complement their application objectives and venue lighting conditions.

Digital Projection launches the M-Vision 930, the world’s brightest single chip DLP projector

Digital Projection International (DPI), an Emmy® Award-winning manufacturer of high-performance projection systems, announces the launch of the M-Vision WUXGA 930, the world’s brightest single chip DLP projector. Venues contending with ambient light, as well as applications needing a powerful yet budget-conscious large-format imagery solution, will directly benefit from the M-Vision 930’s 12,000 lumen light output.
