Hong Kong Grand Hyatt Hotel Finds Clarity with Steerable Meyer Sound CAL Loudspeakers

The five-star Grand Hyatt Hong Kong has installed a pair of Meyer Sound CAL™ column array loudspeakers with a goal to elevate speech and music clarity in the luxurious, yet acoustically challenging Grand Ballroom.

A room frequently used for wedding parties and auction events, the Grand Ballroom recently underwent a renovation. With its mirrored walls and low ceiling, the new interior architecture presented a difficult environment for amplified sound. Following the hotel group CEO’s request for a new sound solution, Audio Dynamic, Meyer Sound’s Hong Kong dealer, staged a convincing demo using two steerable CAL column array loudspeakers.

“When the CAL loaner system arrived, the maximum gain before feedback was immediately improved,” says Hongi Lau, audio visual project manager of the Grand Hyatt. “Speech was clear and intelligible. We were also surprised by the music quality, and how the system produces such a warm, rich sound without a subwoofer.”

Designed specifically for challenging acoustic environments, CAL loudspeakers provide highly accurate vertical beam steering to aim directly at audience members without exciting an acoustic space. Hearing clear acoustic improvements from CAL, Grand Hyatt management worked with Paul Poon of Audio Dynamic to permanently install a pair of color-matched CAL 32 loudspeakers. The hotel audio team can control the coverage angle and dispersion using the Meyer Sound Compass® control software.

“With the permanent CAL installation, the results are now even better,” reports Hongi Lau. “Maximum level at the room entrance, more than 30 meters from either speaker, is over 110 dB SPL. In addition, the level measured across the room shows minimal variation. These are really amazing loudspeakers, giving us a level of performance never before heard in this room.”

Hear them Live at InfoComm 2014: Meyer Sound Demos Installation Loudspeakers with IntelligentDC

At InfoComm 2014, visit the Meyer Sound demo room N110 and show booth C9725 to learn how its expanding self-powered loudspeaker offerings can provide a sonic and logistical edge to your next project. These products range from remotely powered installation loudspeakers featuring IntelligentDC technology, to the new flagship linear sound reinforcement systems LEO™ and LYON™ and the AVB-capable CAL™ column array loudspeaker

IntelligentDC systems are a range of self-powered loudspeakers driven by the remote IntelligentDC power supply, with one cable carrying power and balanced audio to reduce installation time and cost. Packing all the benefits of self-powering, including consistency and reliability, these systems are ideal for many commercial distributed installations and other systems that demand exceptional audio quality, as well as for where local AC outlets are not available or possible.

The InfoComm demos show configurations most commonly found in today’s integration projects, and feature a number of products with IntelligentDC technology: the MM-4XP self-powered loudspeaker, the UPJunior-XP and UPJ-1XP VariO™ loudspeakers, the UP-4XP loudspeaker, and the UMS-1XP and MM-10 subwoofers. Another remotely powered installation loudspeaker, the Stella-8C, is also demonstrated.

Also showcased in the live demos is the MJF-210, the lightest stage monitor in the Meyer Sound product line, and the steerable CAL column array loudspeaker.

At the Meyer Sound booth, see the LEO Family, comprising the newest LYON linear sound reinforcement system and its larger sibling, the LEO linear large-scale sound reinforcement system. Complemented by the 1100-LFC low-frequency control element and the Galileo® Callisto™ loudspeaker management system, LEO Family products can anchor a powerful system for installations in everything from large auditoriums to arenas and stadiums, as well as tours and festivals.

In addition, live technical demonstrations on the Meyer Sound stand and the AVnu Alliance Pavilion showcase the power of Audio Video Bridging (AVB) interoperability, featuring the CAL loudspeaker routing audio signals on an AVB network.

As part of the InfoComm University education program, Buford Jones, live audio and education specialist for Meyer Sound, leads two sessions on Wednesday, June 18. “Principles of Live Mixing” takes place at 10:30 am and “Mix It Up—Live Audio Workshop” at 12:30 pm. Also on Wednesday, June 18, Jeff Koftinoff, embedded software developer for Meyer Sound, presents “Effective Deployment and Management of Large Scale AVB Networks” at 8:00 am. Advance registration is required through InfoComm.

Artist Bill Fontana Enlists Meyer Sound System for Chilling WWI Soundscape in UK

In his newest sonic sculpture, Vertical Echoes, renowned sound artist Bill Fontana brings the horror of the WWI battlefield to IWM North, part of the Imperial War Museums, in Manchester, England. As in several of his sound installations, Fontana has selected a remotely powered IntelligentDC system from Meyer Sound to accurately reproduce his soundscape and immerse museum visitors. IntelligentDC systems will be featured in live demos at InfoComm 2014 in Las Vegas from June 17-20. Click here for details.

Vertical Echoes is housed inside a 55-meter-high tower known as the AirShard, located at IWM North. To evoke battlefield dynamics, Vertical Echoes juxtaposes the crescendos of battle against a backdrop of softer nature sounds. Featuring recordings of a Sopwith Camel warplane and vintage field gun, the soundscape is reproduced by eight self-powered UPJunior-XP VariO™ loudspeakers with IntelligentDC technology. The loudspeakers are evenly spaced along the vertical axis of the structure.

“There’s extreme dynamic range in the work, from artillery fire and the buzzing biplane, to wind in the trees and twittering birds,” says Fontana. “The UPJunior-XPs were ideal for this piece because they offered both clarity and dynamic range.”

Providing the same sonic performance as the company’s self-powered AC systems, Meyer Sound loudspeakers with IntelligentDC technology are driven by a rack-mount IntelligentDC power supply, with one cable carrying both power and balanced audio to reduce installation times and costs.

“It’s just so much easier to work with in situations like this,” notes Fontana. “You don’t have to run AC or long speaker cables, but you still get true bi-amplified systems. The UPJunior-XPs were perfectly suited to this application.”

The Meyer Sound loudspeakers were provided and installed by Pro Audio Systems of Bradford, West Yorkshire, with project management headed by Lee Unsworth. A Meyer Sound dealer in the north of England, Pro Audio Systems is also a long-time supplier for IWM North.

“I was really impressed by the quality of the loudspeakers, and their capacity to play such clear and loud sound,” observes Zoe Dunbar, head of exhibitions at IWM North. “The vertical positioning of the speakers creates a breathing wave of sound that you experientially feel. Our aspiration was to mark the centennial by engaging visitors in a challenging way and giving contemporary relevance to the First World War. I believe we have achieved those goals with Vertical Echoes, and our visitors have reacted positively.”

Vertical Echoes is the first in a series of artistic responses to World War I commissioned by IWM North in honor of the war’s centennial. The installation runs through September 21.

Recognized as one of the world’s foremost sound artists, Bill Fontana has created innovative and intriguing sound sculptures around the world since 1976. In 1999, Fontana’s requirement for very small, high-quality loudspeakers for his installation along the Lyon, France tramway provided the impetus for Meyer Sound to develop the MM-4, the first in the company’s popular line of miniature loudspeakers.

Pexip Infinity Version 6 Provides Secure and Scalable Virtual Collaboration Platform

New Security Features Align With Most Stringent U.S. Federal Government Requirements

OSLO, Norway — June 10, 2014 — Pexip(R), a global disrupter in scalable, distributed videoconferencing technology, today announced the release of Pexip Infinity Version 6. Featuring new security features to meet the most demanding United States Federal Government requirements, the latest version of the Infinity scalable meeting platform includes enhancements such as Active Directory (AD) integration, role-based authentication, and secure NTP/SNMP to provide IT managers with the most robust tools for secure meeting platform management.

“As Pexip Infinity continues to enable widespread visual communications for anyone at anytime, enhanced security is becoming more important than ever,” said Håkon Dahle, CTO, Pexip. “The launch of Infinity Version 6 is the latest example of Pexip’s commitment to information assurance. Specifically designed to meet stringent federal requirements, Version 6 offers the most scalable and secure virtual meeting platform available to customers across all verticals.”

AD integration support in Pexip Infinity Version 6 lets administrators use existing AD or LDAP servers to authenticate all incoming connections to the Pexip Management Node. As a result, organizations obtain simpler, more secure authentication capabilities while allowing the automatic enforcement of password complexity, expiration, automatic account creation/deletion, and single password access via any device. Role-based authentication now enables users to create and assign role-based permissions to individuals or administrator groups — resulting in the ability to log and track individual administrator activities.

Pexip Infinity’s support for secure NTP and SNMP version 3 ensures that communication with external services remains encrypted and protected. By providing practical single-screen notifications to administrators whenever new platform events occur, Infinity Version 6 allows for more effective troubleshooting, issue resolution, and maintenance. In alignment with U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) requirements, a new Assured Services SIP feature enables failsafe operation within mission-critical environments.

In addition to new security enhancements, Pexip’s Infinity Version 6 is introducing a number of user-centric improvements. These include new presence capabilities for Microsoft(R) Lync(R), custom Lync pictures and avatars, and configurable conference participant limits that prevent the oversubscription of conference resources.

DPA Microphones d:fine™ 66 and 88 Miniature Headset Mics Make InfoComm Debut


New mics join the original 4066/4088 and d:fine Headsets in the d:fine family to meet a variety of needs


LAS VEGAS, JUNE 10, 2014 DPA Microphones’ new d:fine™ 66 and d:fine 88 Miniature Headset Microphones will be on display at InfoComm 2014 (Booth C11936). Ideal for productions involving presenters and performers needing to move freely about a stage without obstructions from a handheld mic or mic stand, the d:fine 66 and d:fine 88 have joined the company’s d:fine Headset Microphone family, which now addresses a variety of sound handling and size options, depending on the intended application.

With a contemporary look and classic sound, the d:fine 66 and d:fine 88 combines the 4066 Omni and 4088 Cardioid microphone capsules with features of the modern d:fine headsets, such as an advanced mount and flexible ear hooks. The new DPA d:fine 66 Omnidirectional Headset Microphone and d:fine 88 Directional Headset Microphone, which are recognized by their rounded capsules, are intended for use by actors, musicians and singers who require optimal sound and grid cleaning/changing options.

“We introduced the d:fine Headset Microphones a few years ago and selected the name based on a belief that the microphone would define a new generation of headsets,” says Christian Poulsen, CEO of DPA Microphones. “The d:fine certainly did meet our expectations, so we have now decided to expand the d:fine Headset series to include this third solution to give users a broad assortment of headsets and features. Featuring a total of four capsules – two omnis and two cardioids – and three headset mounts – single-ear, dual-ear and personalized mount, the d:fine Headset Microphones Series offers something for every user and environment.”

When DPA Microphones launched its d:fine Headset Microphones, the company met a market demand, which created a new niche of DPA headset users that did not affect the popularity of the original 4066 and 4088s. Thanks to the strong popularity of both microphone lines, this third option in the d:fine series comes as a result of a growing need for durable body worn microphone solutions with excellent sound reproduction and sturdy casing for stringent use in live environments.

ABOUT DPA:
DPA Microphones is the leading Danish Professional Audio manufacturer of high-quality condenser microphone solutions for professional applications. DPA’s ultimate goal is to always provide its customers with the absolute finest possible microphone solutions for all its markets, which include live sound, installation, recording, theatre and broadcast. When it comes to the design process, DPA takes no shortcuts. Nor does the company compromise on its manufacturing process, which is done at the DPA factory in Denmark. As a result, DPA’s products are globally praised for their exceptional clarity and transparency, unparalleled specifications, supreme reliability and, above all, pure, uncolored and undistorted sound.

Masque Sound Fills Charleston with Sweet Music for 38th Season Of Spoleto Festival USA

Custom Audio Equipment Package Turns on the Charm for Celebration of America’s Premier Performing Arts Gathering

CHARLESTON, SC, JUNE 10, 2014 – When the 38th annual Spoleto Festival USA, America’s premier performing arts festival, kicked off on May 23, Masque Sound, a leading theatrical sound reinforcement, installation and design company, was on-hand to provide Sound Supervisor Lew Mead with an extensive custom audio equipment package for the multi-venue, two-week long celebration.

For 17 days and nights each spring, Spoleto Festival USA fills Charleston, South Carolina’s historic theaters, churches and outdoor spaces with performances by renowned and emerging artists and performers in opera, theater and dance, as well as chamber, symphonic, choral and jazz music.

As sound supervisor, Mead is given the incredibly challenging task of piecing together all of the different equipment and staffing needs of the various companies at each venue, to not only provide them all with exactly what they need for their shows but also to allow them the flexibility to coordinate with multiple performers in one space. In order to pull this off, Mead begins his pre-planning as early as November of the previous year and works with an audio staff of 10 engineers during the festival.

“Months before the festival, we compile all of the drawings and requirements for each artist and performer,” says Mead. “I then work with the venues directly to discuss which equipment we can place in each location. Lighting Supervisor Andy Cissna, Special Projects/Carpentry Coordinator Paul Hunter, Director of Production at Spoleto Festival Rhys Williams and I are in constant communication to try to blend all of the different requirements for each venue together so that it works for all parties involved.”

In addition, Festival Engineer Kate Foretek spent two weeks in the Masque Sound shop, piecing together the various custom equipment packages that the festival events required before shipping the packages to Charleston.

“The crew at Masque Sound has been fantastic to work with and incredibly helpful in terms of assisting our team through the engineering and extensive planning that goes into all of the different events,” adds Mead. “Everyone at Masque Sound is very forward-thinking, and they were all quick to anticipate and address our needs. Additionally, the depth of their inventory is great. They are always able to provide us with the exact equipment we are looking for.”

One particular instance in which Masque Sound was able to provide Mead with specific equipment to accommodate a performer’s request occurred during preparations for acclaimed recording artist Lucinda Williams’ performance. “Lucinda Williams requested two DiGiCo SD10 Live Digital consoles for her performance at the TD Arena,” says Mead. “We haven’t used the SD10s in the past, because they’ve been quite a rare commodity in the industry, but Masque Sound stocks them in its inventory and ensured that the consoles would be made available to my team. We were thrilled to be able to supply Ms. Williams with these fantastic consoles, as the sound quality was impeccable.”

Mead also credits Masque Sound’s customer service and hands-on approach as a big part of the festival’s success. “When I’m looking at these venues, I try to do it with an open mind, envisioning the different equipment that Masque Sound can offer me and seeing if I can make it work. Scott Kalata, from Masque Sound, came down to Charleston and toured all of the venues with me and came up with some suggestions, which was very helpful. The fact that I can call anyone on the team—whether that person is Scott, Gary Stocker or Dennis Short—and quickly be offered equipment advice is a huge benefit. It is really great to be able to rely on them as a resource, and it is very reassuring to know that with their extensive inventory, they can accommodate my needs for an event of this size and scope.”

In total, the festival utilized more than 200 microphones, 100 speakers and 5 digital consoles from some of the audio industry’s top manufacturers, including DiGiCo, Sennheiser, JBL and Meyer, all adding up to an incredibly successful premier performing arts festival.

HRS Control Unveils NEW Bridge Products as part of their Embedded Control Servers product line At InfoComm14

HRS Control will introduce a suite of Bridge products as part of their Embedded Control Servers product line at InfoComm14 where the company will occupy booth # C4834 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 18-20. The three devices – Lighting Bridge, Studio Bridge and Timecode Bridge – serve as middle-ware hardware devices and are designed to work as stand-alone units or as part of a larger system with UDC Pro ESC-Raptor.

“We have had this protocol translation technology since we developed it several years ago and it has been available as part of our full UDC Software package. Customers now have dedicated hardware to perform the function of protocol translation,” says Drew Taylor, director of sales and applications for HRS Control. “The Bridge products now offer this technology in a cost effective dedicated and embedded hardware platform for even better performance and reliability.”

While the Raptor provides the GUI, the Bridge products act as back-end workhorses linking external equipment for integrated communications. The bridges are ideal for concert touring, live events, broadcast studios, houses of worship, museums, theme parks, theaters and any other AV application.

The Lighting Bridge accepts incoming Art-Net or DMX triggers and executes outgoing HRS Macros that control any AV equipment. Configuration of the Lighting translation table is fast to build and simple to maintain.

The Studio Bridge translates incoming PBUS or VDCP triggers and executes HRS Macros enabling switchers in broadcast environments to talk to equipment such as Vista Systems’ Spyder and AJA Ki Pro recorders.

The Timecode Bridge listens to incoming timecode. The user adds triggers so HRS Macros can be executed at points in the timecode to trigger other equipment. It works with LTC and MTC formats.

All of the Bridge products run on Linux embedded for 24/7 reliability. They come in half-rack width with an available rack shelf. Sharing its form factor with Raptor, a Bridge can sit side-by-side with the Raptor and occupy just a single rack height.

A built-in web page is used for set up configuration and realtime system monitoring.

HRS Control is taking orders and shipping the bridge products now.
