LynTec to Highlight Industry-Leading Power Control and Distribution Systems at PLASA Focus: Baltimore 2014

LENEXA, Kan. — April 22, 2014 — LynTec, a leading manufacturer of customized electrical power control for professional audio, video, and lighting (AVL) systems, will highlight its award-winning Remote Power Control Mobile (RPCM) power distribution panel at PLASA Focus: Baltimore 2014, taking place May 8-9 at the Reitz Arena of Loyola University Maryland in Baltimore.

“As LynTec’s first exhibition on the East Coast, PLASA Focus: Baltimore is a prime opportunity for sound, lighting, and video professionals to learn how our power control and distribution solutions can deliver space, time, and cost savings,” said Mark Bishop, president, LynTec. “The RPCM is the market’s first intelligent mobile power distribution panel, bringing the dependable features from our popular RPC controller to a fully portable product. We’ll also showcase our entire RPC line of remote power control systems for entertainment industry applications, including the RPCR relay panel and new features such as the market’s only emergency auto-on function for egress lighting requirements.”

A 2013 winner of a Live Design International (LDI) Award for Best Debuting Product of the Year, the RPCM is ideal for temporary live events in venues such as houses of worship, stadiums, and theaters. The system provides direct on/off control for LED lighting and takes loads out of standby mode by directly shutting down circuits — reducing energy and system maintenance costs, and facilitating more sustainable setups — within a portable roadcase design. The RPCM’s switch-grade motorized circuit breakers provide remotely managed electrical protection and on/off control within a single enclosure. In addition, the unit offers current monitoring at the branch circuit level to enable real-time current draw on a branch breaker, phase, or panel basis. A built-in Web server enables users to monitor and control distribution with ease, directly on the network, from a Web interface on any browser-enabled smart device. The RPCM also interfaces with most third-party control systems using IP, DMX, and sACN protocols.

Also on display at PLASA Focus: Baltimore 2014, LynTec’s Remote Power Controller (RPC) series panel version 2 combines the latest motorized breaker technology with a new and improved controller featuring more memory, a faster processor for real-time monitoring down to the circuit level, and the capacity to use multiple control protocols simultaneously — now including sACN. These new features complement the device’s onboard server with network or smart-device access, load-specified switch-grade motorized circuit breakers, built-in auto-off brownout protection using controlled circuit breaker shutdown and restart, optional sequential circuit level on/off capabilities, and the ability to interface with third-party control systems via contact closure, TCP/IP, DMX, or RS-232.

In addition, LynTec will display its award-winning RPCR relay panel. Ideal for houses of worship, schools, performing arts centers, auditoriums, and other large assembly spaces, the RPCR is the only relay panel built specifically for the entertainment industry. Based on LynTec’s popular RPC series panel, the RPCR brings branch circuit control and monitoring to any existing breaker panel, regardless of brand, make, or model. The unit combines relay functionality with a built-in Web server to provide remote electrical control to applications, including LED lighting, powered amplifiers, and energy management programs. Additionally, a Web-enabled browser-based interface allows users to set up, troubleshoot, control, and monitor relay status remotely across existing networks, resulting in simpler, more efficient power management from any computer, tablet, or handheld smart device. The point-and-click interface enables users to set up zones easily, perform sequential on/off switching and scheduling, activate emergency overrides, and provide dependable brownout protection.

NEP Upgrades Mobile Fleet With Embedded Audio as Part of Large-Scale Technology Enhancement Project

With Upgrade to Grass Valley Switchers Now Well Underway, NEP to Install 16-Channel Embedded Audio Support on Seven Units by Fall

PITTSBURGH — April 22, 2014 — NEP has begun phase two of its large-scale, fleetwide technology enhancement with major audio infrastructure upgrades for seven of the company’s U.S.-based mobile broadcasting vehicles. The enhancement includes router upgrades to support 16 channels of embedded audio across all recording and playback devices, as well as inbound and outbound paths to remote outside broadcasting locations.

“The transition to embedded audio over HD-SDI video will be a huge asset for both our engineering crews and our broadcast customers, especially those that need to create multiple audio streams in 5.1 to support various international markets,” said George Hoover, chief technology officer, NEP. “In addition to reducing engineering and operating costs as well as weight, rack space, and power consumption — always important factors on mobile units — embedded audio will better equip us to support the channel payloads required for multichannel audio in large-scale, live mobile productions.”

Although the audio will eventually be upgraded on NEP’s entire fleet of U.S. mobile broadcasting units, the company is planning to complete the upgrade on seven HD vehicles over this summer. They include PESA router upgrades for full embedded audio with LED legend-able panels in SS18, SS16, SS20, ND5, and ND6. The audio upgrade is a full-featured retrofit that will enable channel swapping, shuffle, delay, and phase adjustments for each path while maintaining full sample accuracy. This audio enhancement project will also include audio console upgrades to NCPX and NCPVII, including the addition of BlueFin technology.

Since announcing the massive fleetwide enhancements in January, NEP has made significant progress on the first phase, upgrading 30 HD vehicles to state-of-the-art Grass Valley(R) K-Frame(TM) modular video processing engines with Kayenne(R) Video Production Center switcher platforms. In addition to the switcher and embedded audio retrofits, NEP will launch other phases of the enhancement program in the coming months. These include improving the vehicles’ slow-motion replay capabilities using EVS XT3 servers, replacing copper cable with fiber-optic cable to interconnect multiple vehicles on larger productions, and new monitor walls in several mobile units. NEP has also begun a refurbishing and upgrade program for its B units and a project to install The Wall(TM), the company’s new Apple(R) iPad(R) app for fast and easy configuration of complex monitor walls. The fleet upgrade will take place in cycles over the next three years in order not to disrupt scheduled productions.

Digigram’s New Codec Fleet Manager Speeds and Simplifies Management of AoIP Contribution Codecs

Hosted Locally or Run as SaaS in the Cloud, Application Enables Convenient Management of All AoIP Contribution Codecs via Any Web-Connected Platform

MONTBONNOT, France — April 22, 2014 — Digigram today announced the release of the company’s new Codec Fleet Manager. The Web-based application, which can be hosted privately on any virtual machine or operated as SaaS in the cloud, enables structured management of all deployed audio-over-IP (AoIP) contribution codecs. Accessible from anywhere through the Web browser of Internet-connected devices such as PCs, tablets, and smartphones, the application automatically synchronizes phone books, connection profiles, and “favorite” groups of codecs to dramatically simplify deployment and day-to-day operation of the full codec fleet.

“Our new Codec Fleet Manager offers a significant improvement over the labor-intensive and time-consuming technical processes once required to maintain a fleet of AoIP contribution codecs,” said Pascal Malgouyard, head of product marketing at Digigram. “This secure application keeps each codec up to date and enables access from any location, whether by the studio administrator or a remote technician. By encapsulating the complexity of intricate AoIP protocols and cryptic specialized IP audio parameters, this application makes codec operations as straightforward as placing a phone call.”

Digigram’s Codec Fleet Manager supports phone book creation and management much like the “contacts” interface on a smartphone, tablet, or computer. While this element of the Codec Fleet Manager describes all the characteristics of the contacts included in a fleet of codecs, the application also provides control over connection profile details, favorites, and associated filters.

The new application allows authorized users to preconfigure and edit contact settings for the entire codec fleet and then apply those settings across the whole fleet at once. Read/write access is managed by the administrator. As a consequence, at the codec level, the user interface mimics simple mobile phone operation, assuring ease of use regardless of the complexity of underlying IP protocols, profiles, N/ACIP signaling modes, and quality of the supporting connection.

The release of the Codec Fleet Manager is the first step in Digigram’s larger rollout of cloud-based AoIP solutions.

More information about Digigram and the company’s products is available at www.digigram.com or by phone at +33 4 76 52 47 47.

LynTec at InfoComm 2014

June 18-20 – Las Vegas
Booth C8725

LynTec Products on Display at InfoComm 2014:

Remote Power Controller (RPC) — New Version!
LynTec’s Remote Power Controller (RPC) series panel version 2 combines the latest motorized breaker technology with a new and improved controller, featuring more memory, a faster processor for real-time monitoring down to the circuit level, and the capacity to use multiple control protocols simultaneously — now including sACN. These new features complement the device’s onboard server with network or smart-device access, load-specified switch-grade motorized circuit breakers, built-in auto-off brownout protection using controlled circuit breaker shutdown and restart, optional sequential circuit level on/off capabilities, and ability to interface with third-party control systems via contact closure, TCP/IP, DMX, or RS-232.

This new version also provides the market’s only auto-on function to activate egress lighting via contact closure inputs from fire alarms in the event of an emergency. Supporting UL 924 requirements, the upgrade replaces the need for separate emergency lighting panels and high voltage switches. The software also turns on lighting circuits regardless of control protocol or zone assignment — similar to the function of existing emergency-off or kill features used for silencing sound reinforcement systems during alarms.

Remote Power Control Mobile (RPCM)
LynTec’s award-winning Remote Power Control Mobile (RPCM) is the first intelligent power distribution panel to bring three new features to the mobile power distribution market. First, the RPCM uses switch-grade motorized circuit breakers to provide remotely managed electrical protection and on/off control within a single enclosure. Second, the unit offers current monitoring at the branch circuit level — enabling real-time current draw on a branch breaker, phase, or panel basis in addition to notification alarms that alert users of electrical panel anomalies via text or email. Third, the RPCM’s built-in Web server enables users to monitor and control distribution with ease, directly on the network, from a Web interface on any browser-enabled smart device. RPCM also interfaces with most third-party control systems using IP, DMX, and sACN protocols.

Ideal for temporary live events in settings including houses of worship, stadiums, and theaters, the RPCM provides direct on/off control for LED lighting and takes loads out of standby mode by directly shutting down circuits — reducing energy and system maintenance costs while facilitating more sustainable setups within a portable, road case design.
