HRS Control Launches Complete Line of ECS Embedded Control Servers At InfoComm14

HRS Control has introduced a complete line of ECS Embedded Control Servers encompassing both touch screen and central control servers. They will be unveiled to InfoComm14 attendees in the HRS Control booth # C4834 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 18-20. This family of products expands the capabilities of today’s available control system technology to meet the needs of a wide array of applications for permanent AV installs large and small.

The new stand-alone Mantis and Enterprise servers join HRS Control’s UDC Pro ECS-Raptor, which was introduced last year. Raptor offers embedded Linux for 24/7 operation and reliability; it has a small footprint and low power consumption and is designed for one to three rooms or areas. Raptor supports all protocols: UDP, TCP, Telnet, HTTP, RS232/422, IR, Art-Net/DMX, MIDI, relays, contact closure and more. The SDK incorporates JavaScript and JSON objects to give power to developers.

Raptor is fast and easy to configure. Users can connect to the control system with the HRS Control Pro app on iOS, Windows 8 and RT, and Android. It also works with HRS Control’s new eTouch series of wall-mount and desktop embedded touch screens.

Users who need more power and reach than Raptor can now step up to Mantis, which is designed for five to ten rooms or areas. It’s built on a Linux embedded OS and runs multiple instances of the HRS server.

“Mantis enables users to independently manage six different control systems from one server,” notes Drew Taylor, director of sales and applications at HRS Control. “Mantis features the power of six Raptors on one computer, so it’s ideal for customers who need control in multiple rooms and want access and management from a central server.”

Users with enterprise or university-style applications can now check out the aptly-named Enterprise server for control of 10 to 100 rooms or areas. It boasts enterprise class hardware full of redundancy running HRS Embedded.

“Enterprise features a modular licensing model,” Taylor explains. “It comes with 10 server licenses, but customers can add up to 90 more for managing 100 different control systems from one server. This eliminates the need for a small black box or control processor in every classroom or conference room. Instead, users get up to 100 virtual controllers, which are independently managed and configured from a central point. That equates to cost savings since customers don’t need to purchase and install equipment in every room, and they have a single point of control, management and advanced monitoring.”

Rounding out the product family are two new HRS-eTouch touch screen controllers available in wall-mount and desktop configurations in 4 inch screen and 7 inch screen models. They can be used with Raptor, Mantis and Enterprise in a multi-controller interface environment. They also feature a built-in control server for a stand-a-lone single-controller application requiring no additional hardware or software investment.

The HRS-eTouch wall-mount kit is shipping now; desktop kits will be available soon.

Raptor is shipping now. Orders for Mantis and Enterprise will be taken at InfoComm14.

Lightware to Showcase New 25G Hybrid 80×80 Digital Matrix Switcher At InfoComm 2014

Lightware U.S.A., the US distributor for Budapest-based Lightware Visual Engineering products, has announced that the 25G Hybrid 80×80 digital matrix switcher has begun shipping. The 80×80 frame will be showcased in the Lightware Visual Engineering booth at InfoComm 2014, June 14-20, at the Las Vegas Convention Center where working demos will be scheduled. It will also be displayed in the HDBaseT 4K switching demo area where it will run with fiber HDBaseT extenders and HDMI local in and out.

“The 80×80 is the second frame size in the 25G Hybrid series; the 25G Hybrid 160×160 has been shipping since last year,” says Drew Taylor, director of sales and applications for Lightware U.S.A. “No other matrix switchers have the capabilities of this series, which is ideal for any application concerned about building a large-scale, future-proof switching system. Instead of running cable for every signal type the 25G Hybrid architecture, saves cost and energy by using a single fiber or CAT cable to deliver full HD and 4K digital video, audio, Ethernet, IR, RS232 and power.”

Designed for exceptionally high-resolution image quality and 24/7 reliability, 25G Hybrid technology sets a new standard in the pro AV industry. More than just a switcher, the 25G Hybrid is a complete source that manages and distributes all digital and analog signals over a single CAT5 cable or fiber via specially-developed input/output cards combined with audio add-ons. As a comprehensive line of digital matrix switchers, transmitters and receivers, 25G Hybrid combines switching with a powerful suite of diagnostic tools for the digital age, delivering a superior user experience for yachts, corporate infrastructure, government data centers and university infrastructures.

“The 25G Hybrid series is the Rolls-Royce of switchers,” Taylor points out. “They are custom built for each customer; they are not an off-the-shelf solution. Once shipped here to our facility in the US, we outfit the frames with Lightware’s MODEX (Modular Extender) family of external signal extenders to build a complete, facility-wide infrastructure solution using one matrix chassis and multiple MODEX units. Then we test the systems and document that they are fully functional and complete based on the project requirements. We offer training for customers at our location while the entire system is setup before shipping to the project site.”

At the heart of the 25G Hybrid line is super-fast 25Gbps data-rate switching, which allows transportation of next-generation video signals like HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort1.2. The future-proof platform is ready for all video and audio standards, including 4K and stereo 3D formats.

Multilayer architecture allows independent routing of each signal type (breakaway switching) for all layers. This feature provides switching and extending of all signal layers separately, or in a breakaway format, to be recombined at output to a single connection.

Each video port is equipped with a separate audio input and output (audio return channel) connector forming a 320×320 S/PDIF crosspoint switch. It manages stereo and multichannel audio as well as high-bit rate formats like Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. Multichannel-to-stereo down mixing can be provided as an option.

Other 25G Hybrid features include Ethernet 10/100 connection at all input and output ports and MODEX extension end points, USB KVM connectivity, and IT/CEC/RS-232 control signal support.

“Prospective customers attending InfoComm will have a chance to see the new 25G Hybrid 80×80 first hand in a working environment at the Lightware booth as well as out MX Series 80×80 matrix supporting HDBaseT in the 4K switching demo area,” Taylor says. “It’s a great opportunity to meet the future.”

Robert Juliat Victor Followspots Come to the “Cabaret” at Studio 54

A pair of Robert Juliat Victor followspots with DMX dimming has been installed at Studio 54 in Manhattan where the Roundabout Theatre Company’s production of “Cabaret” is packing the house. Tony Award-winner Alan Cumming reprises his role in “Cabaret,” which also stars multi-Oscar nominee Michelle Williams who is making her Broadway debut.

“I was very familiar with Juliat fixtures from working in Europe,” says Mike Baldassari, co-lighting designer for “Cabaret” with Peggy Eisenhauer. “The Victor followspot was in the exact neighborhood of what we needed at 1800 watts. We did a shoot out with some other followspots to test not only for brightness but also for noise level. The shoot out was facilitated by electrician John Wooding; Ron Fogel of Fogel Associates and Fred Lindauer of Robert Juliat provided the Victors for us to test.”

Baldassari points out that Studio 54 was originally built as the Gallo Opera House in 1927 so its acoustics reflect its heritage. “The way the dome is constructed projects all sounds like a microphone. The two followspots were off to the sides on custom-built platforms, exposed and in the house. So how much noise they made was a critical issue for us. Sound is not always a consideration, but in this case it was paramount.”

During the shoot out the Victor followspots scored points for their quiet operation and for having the smoothest field of the fixtures tested.

The use of the DMX douser control provided with the Victor followspots allowed the intensity of the fixtures to be controlled from the lighting console which was a “huge feature for us,” Baldassari says. “Because of the side spots being 45˚ off of center from each other, it was very difficult for the operators to judge their relative intensity against each other. By using the DMX dousers, we could set the level to exactly what we wanted, which would be 100% repeatable, and the operators only had to worry about finessing their pickups and irises.” After acquiring the Victors Baldassari and Eisenhauer added scrollers in front of the units which are also controlled from the lighting console.

The Victor followspots’ “set up is really perfect for what we need for ‘Cabaret,’” he declares. “They’re a really great light. We knew they would be spot on – no pun intended!”

Eric Yaple was the sales person at dealer PRG. Steve Beers is the technical director at Roundabout Theatre Company.

Electrosonic Provides AV Design and Systems to the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts Now Open in Beverly Hills

The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts (now known as The Wallis) has opened in Beverly Hills with audio-visual design and installation from Electrosonic for its public spaces and theaters. The Wallis, designed by SPF:architects, is the first performing arts center to be built in Beverly Hills.

The Center houses two performance spaces: the showpiece blackbox-style Lovelace Studio Theater, which has been re-imagined in the historic 1933 Italianate Beverly Hills Post Office, and the main stage Bram Goldsmith Theater, which makes its home in a brand new building. An education wing marks the Center’s commitment to bringing theater to young people.

Electrosonic’s Design Consulting team first came on board with the project in 2008 and provided design services for both theaters and their supporting dressing rooms, green room, workshops and control rooms.

The 500-seat Bram Goldsmith Theater will be used for theater, dance and music. Its first season productions include “Noel Coward’s Brief Encounter,” “Maurice Hines is Tappin’ Thru Life,” Martha Graham Dance Company, Rueibin Chen, Sundance Institute’s ComposersLab and a symphonic presentation of “The Trumpet of the Swan.” The Goldsmith theater has a traditional proscenium stage and full fly system, and features a top-of-the-line L-ACOUSTICS ARCS Wide/Focus line source array. Electrosonic design consultant Steve Coe initially specified another audio system from L-ACOUSTICS, but as construction progressed, the manufacturer introduced the new ARCS system that proved to be even better suited to the space.

“The client didn’t want to see any speakers in the theater; the speakers needed to be hidden in recesses and architecturally integrated with the space,” Coe explains. “So when L-ACOUSTICS unveiled its ARCS Wide/Focus system, we thought its smaller size would work to our benefit from an integration point of view. It’s very unobtrusive and has a subtle warmth that’s ideal for a theatrical environment.”

The main cluster of speakers is a four box Wide/Focus array that flies out on a motorized winch, which disappears completely above the ceiling reflector when not being used. An orchestra shell can be put in place for orchestral performances. Two 12XT speakers flank the proscenium; fourteen 8XTi speakers are recessed into the side walls for surround sound and fill. Four 5XT speakers provide surround sound for the upper balcony and the system low end is reinforced by four SB18i subwoofers.

“The ARCS system is probably the best we could have installed,” says Electrosonic project manager Dan Laspa. “This new speaker line is small and perfect for the space. The performers who appeared at the opening gala commented on how good the system sounded.”

A Yamaha PM5D portable digital mixing desk serves both theaters. It was chosen for its popularity among theatrical professionals who will be immediately familiar with its use.

Electrosonic also furnished Clearcom wired and wireless intercom systems and a QSC Q-Sys DSP system for the entire Center with ceiling-mounted speakers in the lobby, back of house, dressing rooms, all tech rooms and shops.

The blackbox-style Lovelace Studio Theater is a multi-purpose, flexible performance space with a flat floor and retractable seating for 150. It will host public performances and children’s programming, and serve as the heart of the theater school for young people. The children’s production “Jason and the Argonauts” and “White” recently finished their runs.

“Since the Lovelace is a completely flexible space, there is little permanent equipment installed there,” says Coe. A control booth has a small Yamaha LS9-16 digital console and AV connector panels are found in the lighting grid and on the side walls; QSC speakers and subwoofers can hang on the grid or stand on the floor.

Electrosonic also designed audio and video signal distribution for the two theaters, including a custom 96-way Whirlwind microphone channel splitter, with Jensen transformers, to permit the greatest flexibility in configuring productions. Digital audio and video tie lines connect the Bram Goldsmith Theater and Lovelace Studio Theater. The company will supply monitors, speakers and source racks for the Center’s education wing and rehearsal spaces, which are still under construction.

Lightware Bolsters Support of HDBaseT: Will Demonstrate at INFOCOMM 2014

Lightware Visual Engineering has furthered its support of HDBaseT with its HDBaseT-enabled 65×65 and 80×80 modular matrix switchers and the new UMX-TPS product family, featuring HDBaseT extenders. Live working demos of the entire product line will be shown in the Lightware booth at InfoComm 2014 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 14-20.

The HDBaseT connectivity standard for whole-home and commercial distribution of uncompressed HD multimedia content has become “increasingly popular and is an exciting step forward for the industry,” says Drew Taylor, director of sales and applications at Lightware U.S.A., the US distributor for Budapest-based Lightware Visual Engineering products. “HDBaseT is playing an important role in the capabilities of Lightware’s growing product range.”

HDBaseT’s 5Play feature set, which delivers uncompressed full HD digital video, audio, 100BaseT Ethernet, power and control signals over a single CAT5e/6 cable, makes it ideal for commercial integration, Taylor says. “By supporting HDBaseT Lightware is responding to needs from the integration space for remote power and the ability to extend RS232 and Ethernet from the matrix to all end points. Our UMX transmitters also can support any connection type.”

The new UMX-TPS product line includes HDBaseT extenders with wall and floor plate models. Targeted to environments such as small boardrooms and classrooms, these devices transmit universal video at resolutions up to 4K, audio, and control up to 180 meters over one CAT cable. The UMX-TPS-TX140 transmission unit is compatible with both Lightware’s HDBaseT extenders and matrix switchers.

Lightware’s own Hybrid architecture is an equivalent of HDBaseT technology delivering video, audio, Ethernet, IR, RS232 and power over a single CAT cable.

“Where Lightware separates itself from the competition is with its 65×65 and 80×80 matrix switchers, which offer Hybrid architecture with HDMI local inputs and outputs mixed with TPS boards,” says Taylor. “No other company provides that kind of solution. And Lightware switchers support 4K today – none of our competitors are shipping products with 4K capabilities yet.”

A.C.T Lighting Approved for Membership in the Con Edison Commercial and Industrial Energy Efficiency Market Partner Program

A.C.T Lighting, Inc. has been named a member of the Con Edison Commercial and Industrial Energy Efficiency Market Partner Program. The program, piloted by the utility’s Green Team brand, benefits A.C.T Lighting and its customers as its members participate in protecting the environment. It directly relates to the GDS ArcSystem of auditorium, retail and commercial LED lighting for which A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive distributor in North America.

The Market Partner Network is comprised of contractors, distributors, suppliers and manufacturers of energy efficient equipment. It also includes skilled professionals such as architects, engineers and energy consultants who assist Con Edison commercial and industrial customers in meeting their energy savings goals.

Partners receive numerous advantages from the program, including the potential to broaden their customer base and increase sales. One of the primary benefits is the financial incentives offered by Con Edison to replace less efficient incandescent, T12 fluorescent and standard metal halide technologies with energy efficient alternatives such as LED lighting.

“We discovered ConEd’s Market Partner program at a recent global energy conservation trade show we attended,” says Chris Patton, systems specialist at A.C.T Lighting. “We were impressed by the financial incentives offered to those who want to implement energy efficient measures. We are very happy to have been accepted into the program. Now, when an interested party like a theater or entertainment venue contacts Con Edison for energy efficient lighting solutions the utility can refer them to us and our GDS ArcSystem.”

Designed as an LED lighting system for new and retrofit applications, the UK-made ArcSystem is available in a range of configurations that serve as truly viable replacements for traditional incandescent sources. With a CRI in excess of 90, the ArcSystem produces an incredibly rich, warm light. It offers extremely smooth dimming from 100 to zero – a feature that’s hard to find in LED fixtures. The system can also be operated wirelessly for easy installation in existing buildings without the need for rewiring with control cable.

“The ArcSystem has been in production for over two years and has hundreds of completed installations worldwide, including many in the U.S.,” notes Patton. “The ArcSystem has just received UL 924 approval for the dual input, emergency version of its fixtures. That’s particularly important for venues looking for an all-in-one solution since it’s now possible to use a fully-listed house light product for both main house lighting and emergency lighting.”

Patton says that A.C.T Lighting is “confident that our acceptance into Con Edison’s Market Partner program will help us promote the ArcSystem’s exciting, green energy alternative to theaters and other entertainment venues in the New York metropolitan area.”
