Electrosonic Engineers MicroTiles Video Wall and Provides AV Support for LKAB Visitor Centre Above Arctic Circle

It may not be the Aurora Borealis, but the giant Christie MicroTiles video wall engineered by Electrosonic at the LKAB Visitor Centre in Koskullskulle, Sweden, is lighting up the north.

LKAB (Luossavaara-Kiirunavaara Aktiebolag) is the world’s technical leader in supplying iron ore pellets, acquired from underground mining, to the global steel industry. Its rich magnetite mines are located in the north of Sweden above the Arctic Circle. A new research centre in Koskullskulle includes a visitor centre that welcomes guests to the nearby Malmberget mine. LKAB’s iron ore mining operations are among the most productive in the world and feature automated processes that result in the “greenest” production of iron.

Electrosonic’s Stockholm office was tasked by LKAB consultant WSP with designing and engineering the audio-visual facilities at the visitor centre, including its showpiece video wall comprised of 192 Christie MicroTiles. The video wall dominates the flexible main presentation space, which can seat 120 people classroom style. The wall is arranged in a 16×12 configuration for an image size of 6.5 x 3.7 meters (21.4 x 12 feet). The display consumes little floor space and is bright enough to be used with full room lighting and with natural light streaming through an exterior glass wall at the opposite end of the room. During the Arctic winter, the MicroTiles display is highly visible from outside the building.

A Vista Spyder image processor, configured for eight inputs and eight outputs, feeds the video wall ensuring that all images are displayed at their full resolution and providing flexibility in image placement. The high resolution of the MicroTiles themselves means that no pixels are visible no matter how close the audience gets to the display.

Permanent inputs to the display include a Blu-ray player, a dual-output high specification computer mounted in the source system rack, a digital video tuner (set top box) and facilities for connecting sources like laptops. An Extron JMP 9600 player is used to present a show that introduces visitors to LKAB, its products and processes. Spectacular high-resolution aerial photographs of LKAB’s operating sites are used as backdrops to formal and informal presentations.

Electrosonic also supplied the presentation room with a comprehensive audio system comprised of a BSS Soundweb DSP controller that accepts inputs from the video sources and from five microphones deployed as needed, plus Crown amplifiers and JBL loudspeakers. A four-channel Bosch infrared system was also installed; it benefits the hearing impaired and may be potentially useful for simultaneous translation.

Two AMX NI-3100 controllers provide overall system control. The user interface is a touchscreen mounted at the lectern and supplemented by an Apple iPad, which enables control from anywhere in the visitor centre.

Adjacent to the presentation room is a board room for management meetings, which Electrosonic has outfitted with basic AV facilities that offer a growth path as the use of the space becomes better defined.

The main display in the board room is comprised of four NEC X551UN 55-inch LCD monitors in a 2×2 array; they feature ultra narrow mullions, sport LED illumination and are bright enough for all ambient light conditions. A Blu-ray player, set top box and two Kramer SID-X1 twisted pair transmitters feed a Kramer presentation switcher. Once again, an AMX room controller with touchscreen user interface provides overall control of the NEC display.

grandMA2 Joins Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival at Madison Square Garden

credit: Tom Case

grandMA2 met Clapton at the Crossroads when the guitar legend held his triennial guitar mega-jam with his friends and musical contemporaries. Four grandMA2 light consoles were on hand for Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival 2013, which was staged for two nights at Madison Square Garden. A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive distributor of MA Lighitng in North America.

Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival has been held every three years since since 2004 as a fundraiser for his Crossroads Centre, an addiction treatment facility in Antigua. This year, each five-hour show featured a roster of guitarists as legendary as Clapton himself, including Jeff Beck and Buddy Guy – with a surprise appearance by Keith Richards.

Two grandMA2 lights were used for concert lighting and TV/key lighting; two additional units acted as back ups. The shows were designed with the Crossroads’ branding in mind and the guitar motif was prominent. “There were lots of bright colors and images of guitars – all the content emphasized these thematic guitar images,” says Dave Maxwell, Clapton’s lighting and show designer who also crafted the TV lighting.

“This was the first Crossroads show we used the grandMA2 on – and I’ve done all the Crossroads shows with Dave. This was a huge show,” says Eric Wade, head programmer for the concert lighting. “It was our best show yet; it really turned out well.”

Wade did all the preprogramming in New Jersey. “We programmed for three or four days with all the bands. I could even call up some of the songs on YouTube and partially cue to them,” he reveals.

“There were so many guitar solos, and we could do a lot of overriding and adapt on the fly. In layout view you can place the lights where they are in space and easily locate them quickly – it’s so fast. Dave did the key lighting and audience matching. I did all the cue-to-cue. It was a lot of fun!”

The grandMA2 also ran all the media and graphics, he notes. The stage sported a 56 x16-foot 10 mil LED wall and a pair of 20 mil walls; two 11 mil walls displayed IMAG for the audience, all via four Catalyst servers. “We faded in and out cameras all the live video through the consoles,” he explains.

Wade praises the flexibility of the grandMA2 and “the great layout.” He reports that he and Maxwell “didn’t have to make any concessions in the show due to the limitations of the desk. That’s amazing – and unheard of with other consoles.”

“grandMA2 is all I use,” Maxwell declares. “I like the feel, and it’s very stable. I usually program it then leave it to the operator. With the wide array of macros and the extensive programming options you can let a lot of it run on its own. No other consoles have as wide an array of automators.”

Wade rifs on grandMA2 one more time. “There’s nothing better out there in the market today,” he concludes.

UDC AJA Gang Control Debuts From HRS Control

HRS Control has introduced AJA Gang Control for its popular Universal Device Controller (UDC), which allows users to take control of the full family of AJA products from the UDC software and any tablet, touch- or web-enabled device. The AJA product lines supported include FS2, FS1, the Ki Pro family and KUMO.

HRS Control developed AJA Gang Control after offering selected customers AJA Ki Pro control for live event playback. “To meet their needs we added Ki Pro control to UDC software,” says Drew Taylor at High Resolution Systems. “AJA really liked what we were doing and recommended our software to their customers. Then we began working with AJA on custom configurations within UDC, pre-configuring the system so it can be used on a daily basis or as a training tool that can be customized further.”

“Our KUMO, FS, and Ki Pro products all have Ethernet interfaces that allow complete control of the devices over a LAN, and HRS Control has added an extra layer of customizable automation software for customers that maximize and complement this ability,” said Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems. “HRS Control’s new AJA Gang Control software offerings extend flexibility to our customers that want to add automation to their AJA based workflows, as well as integrating AJA devices together and within other control environments with protocol translation.”

Cost-effective UDC AJA Gang Control provides AJA product users with the features that have made UDC software so popular across the board: Macros, Web Server, Scheduling, Variables and Logic. Five custom controller interfaces are available for software or web server control; downloadable Apple iPad and Windows tablet apps are free of charge and the software works on Android through the web browser.

USB button panel controllers can be added to the software and rack mount button panels are also available.

Several features are tailored specifically to AJA Ki Pro. Start/stop records on multiple Ki Pros can be triggered with a press of a button or automated by time of day. Customers can get clip lists and playlist information from multiple Ki Pros and load clips and play multiple Ki Pros.

UDC Ki Pro File Management permits simultaneous file transfers over the network on multiple files across multiple Ki Pros. File transfers for archiving to local or network drives can be activated by a press of the button or via time of day with UDC scheduling.

“Ki Pro File Management is a cool new tool that streamlines file transfer for back up or archiving,” says Taylor. “It makes it easy to automate transfers, schedule them and have one-button control.”

AJA KUMO users also have KUMO matrix control with real time status updates and switching, a feature originally developed for other routers and now available for the AJA KUMO routers.

HRS Control has also introduced UDC AJA Gang Control Plus, which offers everything available in AJA Gang Control plus two additional features that enable broadcasters to group AJA devices from the technical director position. First, Protocol Translation translates known incoming control protocols to any outgoing AJA product. Supported protocols include PBUS, VDCP, Art-Net, DMX, MIDI, MOS and more.

Second, UDC Time Code allows users to execute control based on time code or deploy UDC software to generate time code. This additional feature utilizes network based time code or a third-party network interface box for LTC and MIDI time code interfacing.

UDC AJA Gang Control is a cost-effective software package for AJA product users, Taylor points out. “We’re offering it at a lower price than our UDC Pro software because it’s limited to control of AJA devices. But we provide the ability to upgrade to a full UDC Pro license at anytime. Users who choose to upgrade will be able to unlock the rest of the features and gain full control of any device that UDC supports.”

UDC AJA Gang Control is now shipping.

Clay Paky Sharpys and Chromlech Elidy LEDs Help Pink Reveal The Truth About Love

Pink’s critically acclaimed The Truth About Love world tour is underway with Clay Paky Sharpys and Chromlech Elidy LEDs accompanying the pop star on more than 130 show dates in North America, Europe and Australia. A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive distributor of Clay Paky lighting and Chromlech Elidy fixtures in North America.

The Truth About Love is Pink’s sixth concert tour and supports her eponymous sixth studio album. She’s been praised not only for her strong vocals but also for a Cirque du Soleil-style show filled with aerial acrobatics.

The tour features “a multi-screen design with integrated lighting in almost all scenic elements,” says Lighting Designer Baz Halpin with silentHOUSE. “The LED screens move during the show and the lighting moves with them. The placement of soft goods, physical scenic structures along with staircases and risers give the stage an asymmetric feeling.”

One hundred Sharpys are used “all over the set,” he reports. “We have them hung from moving GT truss, LED screens, custom ‘octo-truss’ and dotted on the floor in and around the set.”

Clay Paky Sharpy is a 189W moving beam light with an unprecedented brightness usually achievable only with far greater wattages. Weighing just 16 kg, Sharpy produces a perfectly parallel, laser-like beam, which is sharply defined and free of any halo or discoloration around the edges. It offers 14 different colors and 17 gobos to change the shape of the beam and create an array of spectacular mid-air effects. ?With its light weight and modest footprint, Sharpy is small enough to fit anywhere.

During the show 40 Elidy LEDs are used on the downstage truss as audience blinders and also for dynamic effects.

French-made Chromlech Elidy fixtures are the world’s first LED matrixes capable of projecting volumetric graphics. They combine high-output, calibrated, warm white LEDs with specific optics to generate extremely narrow beams that far exceed the intensity of LED screens. Elidy fixtures are also decorative items that can blend easily into scenery, backgrounds and décor by using a wide range of accessories, including unique new customized covers. These covers are attached either magnetically or as a snap-on and change the panels’ appearance to take on different colors and textures, including wood, metal, mirror, leather, stone and even grass.

“The Sharpys were selected for their small size, flexibility in placement and power, and they’re working very well,” Halpin says. “The Sharpys and the Elidy LEDs really deliver the powerful punch we were looking for.”

Upgrades to Jazz at Lincoln Center Technical Infrastructure, Highlight Continuing Improvements by WorldStage

WorldStage recently upgraded the infrastructure & systems at Jazz at Lincoln Center, where it is the exclusive vendor for AV, to reduce set up time for shows and increase system flexibility. The Nickelodeon upfront and the gala honoring Time’s 100 Most Influential People in the World were the first large-scale events to utilize the venue’s improved technical capabilities.

At Jazz, WorldStage installed a centralized control facility with an extensive equipment roster, which can handle multiple shows efficiently and cost-effectively without bringing in full equipment packages for each event. A built-in Vista Spyder X20 screen-switching system is at the core of the control room along with a multi-viewer monitoring system.

“It’s a very comprehensive approach,” says WorldStage president Joshua Weisberg. “Having screen management capabilities built into Jazz allows us to manage images displayed on multiple screens as part of productions. The built-in Spyder offers flexibility and power combined with superior image quality.”

Productions also save time and money by utilizing fiber-optic cabling run by WorldStage to maximize production efficiency and provide the best signal transmission.

While the upgraded centralized control facility features a very complete equipment roster, WorldStage continues to customize productions as required with gear from its large rental inventory. “It’s rare that we don’t need to supplement the built-in equipment with gear specific to a job,” Weisberg says.

The engineering department at WorldStage, where Barry Grossman is the company’s head of engineering and Michael Cruz director of QC, designed and implemented the new centralized control facility, which is housed, along with comprehensive QC monitoring, in a tech room adjacent to the Rose Theater.

Doug Hosney, Vice President, Frederick P. Rose Hall, concluded, “Eliminating the repetitive equipment loading in and out of the facility streamlines the process and allows the engineers to focus on the client’s needs much earlier. Time that was being spent on load in and set-up is now focused on taking care of the client and helping them reach their production goals.”

WorldStage Inc., the company created by the merger of Scharff Weisberg Inc and Video Applications Inc, continues a thirty-year legacy of providing clients the widest variety of entertainment technology coupled with conscientious and imaginative engineering services. WorldStage provides audio, video and lighting equipment and services to the event, theatrical, broadcast and brand experience markets nationally and internationally.

New GigaCore Range of Gigabit Ethernet Switches from LUMINEX Network Intelligence Makes InfoComm Debut

LUMINEX Network Intelligence, a Belgium-based developer of lighting control, pro audio and video data distribution equipment for the entertainment industry, makes its first appearance at InfoComm showing its new range of Gigabit Ethernet switches with updated web-based user interface. The GigaCore line will be exhibited in LUMINEX booth #561 at InfoComm13, June 8-14 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando.

A young, ambitious company that has already made a name for itself in Europe, LUMINEX has designed the GigaCore line to handle the most demanding sound , video and lighting installations. This next-generation family of Ethernet switches has three models – GigaCore 12, GigaCore 14R and GigaCore 16Xt. They meet and support all industry protocols and offer a user-friendly experience with an industry-specific outlook and optimized defaults. The products come with a built-in redundancy system providing a reliable and easy-to-set-up backbone for users’ networks.

The GigaCore line will showcase its updated web-based user interface at InfoComm. It enables users to easily assign the network ports to different groups or segments on the network (protocol isolation), automatically detect links between GigaCore units and provide network switch status.

The GigaCore Ethernet switches are optimized with a very fast recovery time for any link failures delivering seamless operation for sound, video and lighting protocols running over these links. The products currently support audio over Ethernet protocols such as Dante, Ethersound and Q-Lan with a low jitter, and lighting over Ethernet protocols such as Art-Net, ETCNet2, MA-Net and Streaming ACN (sACN).

Since their introduction last year, the GigaCore line has been used in many applications and has been recommended as a third-party solution by leading industry manufacturers.

The GigaCore range offers common features on the three models, such as 12 Gigabit ports on shielded Neutrik Ethercon ports, making it a rugged, environmentally-friendly range. All devices feature wire-speed layer 2 switching, port status, three LEDs per port (PoE, RLinkX, Link/Speed) and four status LEDs (OK, PoE, RLinkX, Power).
All models come with a built-in redundancy system enabled on all ports, called RLinkX, providing a reliable and easy to set up backbone for the user’s network.
The range also offers the group function, a unique Luminex solution, providing a true user-friendly way to create subnets within your network.
A PoE supply unit, allowing for the feed of PoE compliant devices from the front ports, is available as an option.

GigaCore 12 embeds all the common features of the range.

GigaCore 14R adds two SFP cages for fiber connections. By using fiber transceivers, users can break the limits of 100m given by copper links, and makes its links interference free. it also boasts redundant fans. It adds a backup PSU and a backup PoE supply to the list of available options.

GigaCore 16Xt extends the functionality of GigaCore 14R with four SFP cages, which allow users to create complex network topologies over the fiber link, such as mesh or ring. Its feature set includes a front-end display for basic configuration, avoiding the usage of a computer to set your network, and reducing your setup time. A backup PSU and a backup PoE supply are also optional.

UDC Raptor Embedded Control Server Now Shipping from HRS Control

High Resolution Systems is now shipping UDC Pro ECS-Raptor, a UDC Pro Embedded Control Server designed for permanent AV installs. Raptor will be showcased in High Resolution Systems’ booth at InfoComm13, June 8-14 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando booth # 4089.

Raptor teams up with the company’s popular UDC software to offer a cost-effective, stable hardware/software solution for long-term installations in a wide range of environments. A custom Linux embedded server, Raptor significantly lowers costs to users over full-blown Windows servers and comes with a free version of UDC software so customers can build their workflow configuration with UDC software, load it onto Raptor, test and run their UDC configuration.

“We expect most customers will pay for an upgrade to UDC Pro software, which allows them to send all their commands from UDC software to their Windows computer before loading onto Raptor,” notes Drew Taylor at HRS Control.

Raptor supports the same user interfaces as UDC software: iPad touch control with the HRS Control Pro iOS app available in Apple’s App Store; the HRS Control Pro app for any Windows tablet; in-wall mount touchscreen and button solutions; Android tablets; and web servers. Any device with a browser can act as a controller.

Raptor comes with an Ethernet connection to the device network plus two USB ports for accessories and button control panels. It occupies 1RU in height and one-half of a rack in width and ships with an optional rack shelf for space-saving rack mounting.

Raptor’s first installation saw one system dedicated to an executive briefing room, which needed extensive device control, and a second unit filling the needs of the rest of the facility. “Even with two Raptors, this was still a very cost-effective solution for the integrator,” Taylor reports.
