HARMAN’s Crown Introduces Its DCi Network Display Amplifiers With Front Panel Display and AVB Connectivity

ELKHART, Indiana — HARMAN’s Crown Audio today announced it is expanding its DriveCore Install (DCi) Series amplifier range with the introduction of its DCi Network Display 8|600ND and 4|1250ND power amplifiers, featuring front-panel status displays and AVB (Audio Video Bridging) connectivity. The new eight- and four-channel DCi Network Display amplifiers will be the first professional audio amplifier to be certified by the AVnu Alliance. DCi Network Display amplifiers will deliver reliable audio performance and networked operation in AVB-based audio/video systems.

“Since their recent introduction our Crown DCi Series amplifiers have set a new standard for installed sound, and our new DCI Network Display amplifiers build upon this industry-leading performance by offering certifiable compatibility with AVB-based installations, along with easy setup and operation and unshakable reliability. Combining DriveCore technology with AVB represents another first from Crown as we continue to lead the way for professional amplifier innovation for the most demanding large-scale environments,” said Daniel Saenz, Business Segement Manager, Crown Audio.

Both DCi Network Display amplifiers feature a front-panel display and LED indicators that provide at-a-glance indication of key parameters. A large multifunction knob and push buttons enable instant access to control functions. The amplifiers are compatible with HARMAN’s HiQnet Audio Architect™ system setup and control software and utilize TCP/IP-based protocol in HiQnet for network monitoring and control.

The eight-channel DCi 8|600ND delivers 600W into 8 ohms (300, 600 and 300W into 16, 4 and 2 ohms) and the four-channel DCi 4|1250ND provides 1250W into 8, 4 or 2 ohms (625W into 16 ohms). Both amplifiers offer direct drive “constant voltage” capabilities for 70Vrms and 100Vrms amplification without the need for a step-up transformer, yielding higher audio quality in distributed audio applications with power outputs of 1250W and 600W respectively.

Like all Crown DCi Series amplifiers, the DCi 8|600ND and DCi 4|1250ND utilize HARMAN’s proprietary DriveCore amplifier IC chip for powerful, highly efficient operation from a compact form factor measuring just 2 RU high. The DriveCore chip combines the amplifier driver stage into the power output stage along with additional audio-signal functions, yet is about the size of a postage stamp. The DriveCore-based Class D, next-generation PWM design dramatically reduces size and power consumption and yields much more energy-efficient operation.

Both amplifiers provide a host of networking and control features to ensure reliable operation, including continuous load monitoring, comprehensive error reporting, pilot tone monitoring and programmable general purpose input/output (GPIO) ports. The DCi 8|600ND and DCi 4|1250ND offer extensive DSP capabilities such as LevelMAX™ limiters for the inputs and outputs, with thermal limiting, input and output delay, input and output EQ, built-in crossovers and a built-in signal generator.

The amplifiers incorporate an exclusive Power Factor Corrected (PFC) universal power supply that is designed to deliver maximum power in any country and their universal AC input accepts voltages from 100 – 240 VAC, 50/60Hz (+/- 10%). A newly-designed cooling system focuses the airflow on where it’s needed most, yielding maximum efficiency even under demanding operational conditions.

Crown DCi Series amplifiers are built for the most demanding conditions of continuous professional use and carry a 3-year, no-fault fully transferrable warranty.

Marcus Anderson Creates Sounds For All Settings with HARMAN’s AKG Microphones

LONDON, United Kingdom – Although he has yet to reach the age of 30, Marcus Anderson is already a seasoned musician and one of the most accomplished saxophonists in the world. The multi-talented artist has been playing saxophone with Prince’s band, the New Power Generation, for almost two years. Recently, Anderson also released his fifth solo album, Style Meets Substance, featuring Anderson on a range of instruments and which includes original material that spans a variety of genres. Through it all, Anderson has relied on HARMAN’s AKG C519 miniature condenser microphone in the studio and on stage.

“This new album in unique because I didn’t set out to make a typical album—I kind of just created whatever music I felt like,” Anderson said of Style Meets Substance. “There’s some rock, some Bollywood, some jazz and some old-school hip-hop. It’s creative, adventurous and I hope it takes the listener on a musical journey, through these different musical genres and eras.”

More than two years ago, Anderson began his tenure with the New Power Generation. “I started playing live with Prince and then later began working with him in the studio, recording and creating songs from scratch,” he said. “It’s been cool to work with him in a studio setting. He knows when to jump in and offer feedback and when to pull back and let you be creative. He’s very respectful to his musicians and that’s the beauty of working with him. At the same time, I learn something new from him every day. I feel like I’m in grad school!”

For several years, Anderson has relied on the AKG C519 for use with his saxophone, clipped onto the bell of the instrument. “The C519 has been a tremendous tool for me when recording and performing live—whether it’s at a club with my own band, or in an arena with Prince,” Anderson noted. “It reproduces my playing with clarity and purity. I’ve been a fan of AKG microphones for a long time and the C519 lives up to the standard of quality that AKG has set for all its products.”

The C519’s tight cardioid polar pattern makes it an ideal tool for use near monitor wedges, while its flat frequency response delivers a natural, powerful and clear sound.

Anderson also uses an AKG WMS4500 wireless microphone system for live performances and rehearsals. “I love the WMS4500–it’s crisp, clean and clear. It just punches for me and gives me that clarity I need. I can trim back the high end if I want and pump up the low/mid when I need to.”

Suntec Singapore uses HARMAN’s Martin Professional LED Technology to Enhance Customizable Exhibition space

SINGAPORE — As Singapore’s leading venue for meetings, trade shows, lectures and other events, Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre is an award-winning multilevel space that is home to the world’s largest HD video wall. Located in the central business district of Singapore, the convention center recently underwent a massive renovation that included an advanced LED lighting solution for the center’s fourth level. Suntec Singapore originally had a different plan in mind, however, when Bo Steiber Lighting Design introduced Suntec Singapore to HARMAN’s Martin Professional VC-Dot 1, the project took a different, positive turn.

Suntec Singapore takes pride in being an industry pioneer by using cutting-edge technology to improve business and minimize its carbon footprint for both Suntec Singapore and its clients. For the level 4 modernization, Suntec Singapore sought to change the way attendees interacted with the environment and revolutionize their perception of events and venues. In the downtown modern core of Singapore, space is extremely valuable. “To us, there was one particularly relevant question to bear in mind: How can we design a space flexible enough to host an exhibition today, a wedding banquet tomorrow and a conference the next day,” explained, Arun Madhok, CEO, Suntec Singapore.

The innovative renovation incorporated the venue’s ceiling into the design to allow for Suntec Singapore to quickly alter an event space or set the mood of an event. The new design is centrally programmed and controlled, eliminating the need for staff to climb the ceiling in order to make adjustments. As a result, Suntec Singapore is now a more flexible, marketable and efficient event space.

As part of the innovative ceiling design, Martin’s LED VC-Dot 1’s allows Suntec Singapore to offer its clients unprecedented flexibility for a single space as customers can now differentiate themselves by adding logos, messaging and graphics to their event.

Summarizing the importance of the new design, Madhok stated, “Our new system costs less to operate than our previous system. We save costs on power and cooling as well as the drastic decrease in breakdowns and necessary repairs. The installation is one of our key selling points and has definitely strengthened our brand as a venue. Saying that, we have to expect our competitors to catch up, and therefore we have to constantly renew ourselves and keep up to speed with new products and possibilities. For this, a close working relationship with Martin Professional Asia & Pacific is crucial.”

French Radio Station Europe 1 Upgrades Audio with HARMAN’s Studer OnAir 3000 Digital Consoles

PARIS, France—Leading French radio station Europe 1 has recently outfitted its studios with a pair of HARMAN Studer OnAir 3000 digital consoles. The consoles were sold through Audiopole, Studer’s French distributor.

In existence since 1955, Europe 1 is owned and operated by Lagardère Active, a subsidiary of the Lagardère Group. As part of a redesign to its studios, Europe 1 required an upgrade to its audio system. After an extensive review of console options, the network opted for the OnAir 3000 consoles, installing the first one at the end of December 2013 and the second in April. The consoles are Modulo types, featuring rack-mountable mainframes that house the power supplies and host processing. The consoles are mounted into the studio desks, integrated with the attractive décor of the rooms.

“We already have had good experiences with an OnAir 3000 a couple of years ago, the console is reliable, modular, flexible and robust,” said Michaël Allouche, Europe 1’s head of engineering. “So it was quite natural to stay with the same model.”

The OnAir 3000 design is based on a completely modular desk and a new DSP engine. The fader module includes six fader strips, and up to eight fader modules may be fitted, giving a maximum console size of 48 faders. Layout options range from a highly comprehensive engineer-operated continuity console to a single fader panel for DJ and newsroom use or even a PC-operated system with no physical desk controls. The console has three main stereo mix buses plus an audition facility, four stereo aux. buses, 16 mix-minus sends, configurable as AUXes and three independent studio monitoring circuits and offers full dynamics, EQ and input/output routing in each channel.

Since the OnAir 3000 consoles have been installed, Europe 1 is very pleased with the results.

“The console is very easy to use and the users are happy to get extensive talk-back capabilities on the console from the control room to the headphones in the studio and to external phone lines and codec as well,” said Michaël Allouche. “Using the snapshots is also very useful, there are many different users and they have all their own configuration.”

Award-Winning Producer Steve Pageot Records and Teaches with HARMAN’s AKG Microphones and Headphones

NEW YORK, New York – Legendary producer Steve Pageot picked up his first HARMAN’s AKG recording microphone at the age of 19, from where he ambitiously combined his engineering skills with a passion for music, leading to an esteemed career in music production. Inspired by electronic engineering magazines, he taught himself how to mix and record songs three years later. Today, he uses several AKG microphones and headphones that have seen him through countless studio sessions.

Having worked on multiple high-profile albums with Krayzie Bone, Aretha Franklin, and even a movie with Nick Cannon, Pageot’s credits are as his audio engineering skills. To perform consistently at a top level, he exclusively uses AKG microphones for all of his recordings. His microphone inventory includes AKG C1000S, P820 and C414 XLII microphones, and he owns three pairs of AKG K240 MKII headphones at his home studio.

“I want to use the best out there, and AKG is the best,” said Pageot. “The C1000S was the very first AKG microphone that I owned, and it still works! It is a very professional microphone that is preferred by artists like Aretha Franklin, and can be used on many different aspects of recording for many years.”

“Later on, since adding the P820 microphone to my inventory, I’ve been amazed at the sound that it produces,” Pageot continued. “Artists love this microphone, because the harder they hit it, the better it sounds. You can really hear the harmonics, as an increase in power adds more color to the sound without any distortion. I personally like to record a lot of my flute tracks on this microphone.”

Pageot also enjoys the airy qualities of the AKG C414 XLII microphone. “It’s nice to be able to change the sound with the bass cut filters, which alter the color of the sound,” Pageot added. “It is an excellent microphone for enhancing those midrange notes.”

With regards to the K240 MKII headphones, Pageot is extremely pleased with how natural the sound output is and how comfortable the design sits on his ears. “They’re amazing, and I love how transparent they sound, reproducing the recordings perfectly,” he said. “You can wear them for many hours without ear fatigue, and that’s the reason why the vocalists and I have been using them for three years in my home studio.”

Currently, Pageot is feverishly working on multiple projects, including Krayzie Bone’s final album, MTV shows and the initial stages of the latest album by the Jacksons. However, his most admirable feat could be his one-on-one music production classes, where he teaches audio students how to produce records with AKG microphones.

“I teach students that what you use in the studio dictates how your music is going to sound,” Pageot said. “I swear by AKG microphones, because they allow vocals to cut through the music, regardless of how loud it is. I don’t need to add a lot of EQ to make the vocals sound good, because these microphones reproduce the vocals exactly how it sounds in the studio. That is why I will never record without AKG microphones.”

South Main Baptist Church Transitions to Digital with HARMAN’s Si Performer 3 Consoles

Photo credit: Matt Crawford

HOUSTON, Texas – South Main Baptist Church (SMBC) in Houston recently upgraded with two HARMAN’s Soundcraft Si Performer 3 consoles, sold through Hairel Sound Enterprises. “Our old analog broadcast and sanctuary mixers started to show their age just as we hired our new music minister, Dr. Carey Cannon. The recordings of his first Christmas services inspired generous gifts towards new replacement mixers with recording capability,” said Douglas Robertson, owner of Citizen Doug Productions, who provided design, installation and training of the Si Performer 3 consoles. “I recommended that we go with the Soundcraft Performer 3, Compact Stagebox with MADI, and Dante cards to connect the mixers and provide multi-track recording support.

To match the strong music culture that includes congregational hymns, pipe organ, a 70-person choir, and guest performances, Robinson installed a Soundcraft Si Performer 3 console at the FOH position in the balcony, and one in the broadcasting room in the basement.

“We looked at mixers in all price ranges,” said Robertson. “Only Soundcraft had the card slots we needed and word clock combined with FaderGlow™ and the flexible channel programming with LED scribble strips. These were important creature features for our all-volunteer operators.”

The volunteers, some who have been serving for 35 years, only had experience with analog mixers. “The Soundcraft Si Performer 3’s interface is so intuitive that we had them mixing to air immediately,” Robertson said. “We tape delay our broadcasts, stream live, and have an active social media effort. We had to get the old mixers out and the new mixers in place without interruption.”

“We’ve just finished our Easter services with no problems and are looking forward to recording projects to teach children hymns and possibly some new ensemble CDs,” Robertson concluded.
