OPTOCORE TO SHOWCASE NEW RANGE OF MADI SWITCHES AT ISE 2013

Company Cites Advantages of MADI plus Ethernet over CAT cabling

AMSTERDAM, JANUARY 28, 2013 – Optocore, the leading provider of scalable, high-bandwidth, low-latency fiber-optic networks, for the transmission of audio, video and data in a variety of markets, including pro AV, live and fixed installations and broadcast, will launch its revolutionary new range of MADI Switches at ISE 2013 (Booth 3-A120). Developed specifically for professional audio and video users, Optocore’s new MADI Switches have extremely low power consumption, latency and setup time.

Equipped with 10 or 18 ports of MADI, the switches allow distribution over Cat5 cabling, in addition to MADI over fiber and MADI over BNC. The RJ45 MADI ports on the new products will introduce greater flexibility, lower cost and simplification of MADI connectivity. Additionally, each switch has two redundant high-speed 2GB fiber uplink ports that switch and route sixteen MADI streams and Ethernet, for creating larger switches for large size infrastructure.

“We believe this to be a great solution for the professional AV market,” says Tine Helmle, director, Optocore. “MADI is a common and open standard, as opposed to the closed proprietary Audio over Ethernet formats, with MADI ports frequently being used by manufacturers as a way to offer customers an affordable, forward-thinking open platform. By introducing the MADI Switches, Optocore is offering a greater number of options with the best technical features at a budget-friendly price.”

Each port on the MADI Switch allows for a 64-in/64-out point-to-point connection, as well as 100Mb of Ethernet on one single Cat5 cable. At the same time, the MADI Switch enables routing of each individual audio channel, providing a 640 x 640 matrix for the 10-port switch and a 1152 x 1152 matrix for the 18-port switch. It can also connect using the redundant uplink ports with up to 24 additional MADI Switches, providing audio switching and routing while additionally functioning as an Ethernet switch.

The new MADI Switches are fully compatible with Optocore and SANE. Optocore plans to develop the new devices into a complete series of MADI devices with six, 10 and 18 port switches with Cat5, fiber and BNC connectivity.

Clear-Com Features Wide Range of Intercom Offerings at ISE 2013

AMSTERDAM, 28 JANUARY 2013 ─ Clear-Com®, a global leader in critical voice communications systems, is featuring its latest range of intercom offerings at the 2013 ISE show (Stand 11-E67). Among the systems available for demonstration are the recently unveiled Eclipse HX matrices and HelixNet Partyline system. The company also presents its BroaMan interface option and the latest upgrades to the Tempest®2400 wireless intercom.

“Clear-Com has made several exciting product announcements in the last few months, and we’re pleased to show them to the ISE community,” says Dan Muchmore, Regional Sales Manager for UK, Ireland and Scandinavia, Clear-Com. “Our 40 years of experience in the dynamic world of Broadcast and Live Productions have allowed us to build a portfolio of advanced wired and wireless intercom technologies that essentially meets the demands of many System Integrators, Consultants, and End-Users within the Pro-Audio space. Clear-Com products and services have resolved communication challenges for a variety of applications and markets, including education, corporate, cruise ships and offshore.”

The Eclipse HX Digital Matrix Systems, along with the Eclipse HX (EHX) Configuration Software, are powerful matrix intercoms that offer fast performance, high system capacity and simplified operations and administration. Eclipse HX comprises the Eclipse HX-Omega, Eclipse HX-Median and Eclipse HX-PiCo matrices, as well as the EHX software. In facilities where matrix intercom systems and resources are often shared across multiple areas, fast and highly intuitive systems are critical to reliably execute system-wide changes in real time and with minimal impact on system users. Users can make changes on the Eclipse HX systems quickly and without advanced notice. This capability is especially important in live operations, such as theatre productions.

The EHX software was architected for rapid processing of configuration and routing cards to optimise system performance and speed. Its user interface is designed to be much more intuitive and easier to set up. The Eclipse HX-Omega port density offers 460 ports per 6RU frame, making it the highest density intercom matrix on the market. PiCo-Link provides intelligent audio linking between co-located Eclipse HX-PiCos, allowing users to expand resources with just two rack-unit spaces. Clear-Com’s V-Series panels, frame cards and interfaces are compatible with the new Eclipse HX range to provide a seamless logical upgrade path for existing Eclipse customers.

The Tempest®2400 with Seamless Roaming and Tempest®2400 MasterBelt add advanced wireless capabilities to the Tempest family of digital wireless intercom systems. With the latest additions, users are afforded even more wireless coverage options. The Tempest2400 with Seamless Roaming is ideal for sound designers working at multi-venue or large-scale events, as it allows users to move freely throughout large venues separated by sizeable distances. This includes multi-room complexes, multi-level facilities and sports arenas. Users can effortlessly and seamlessly roam across 16 different coverage zones without interference or dropouts.

For small-scale productions, where an untethered and mobile system is needed, the Tempest2400 MasterBelt is an ideal wireless solution. It offers most of the features, reliability and robustness of the Tempest2400 BaseStation within a compact, portable packaging of a BeltStation. The MasterBelt can be paired with any standard Tempest2400 two-channel BeltStation to create a six full-featured, full-duplex two-channel system.

The HelixNet™ Partyline Intercom System is the industry’s first digital network partyline intercom with a unique set of capabilities to provide efficiency, cost-savings and flexibility from setup to operation. The revolutionary HelixNet platform has proven itself by providing communication at high-profile events such as the 2012 London Olympics and Paralympics.

Included in the HelixNet portfolio of products are the HMS-4X Main Station, HBP-2X HelixNet Beltpacks, the HLI-2W2 two-wire Interface Module and the HLI-4W2 four-wire Interface Module. Each HMS-4X Main Station offers four intercom channels, program audio and power for up to 20 beltpacks over a shield twisted-pair cable (e.g. microphone cable, CAT-5 or CAT-6). Users can also work off one’s existing shielded cable infrastructure to centrally manage the entire system from the Main Station with a single cable. The HelixNet beltpack also functions as a source assignment panel, allowing users to select any two of four channels to get the job done. Furthermore, the high fidelity system delivers superb audio clarity and is rugged enough to withstand demanding work environments.

Buckcherry Rocks with The RapcoHorizon Company

As Devoted RoadHog Cable and Custom Splitter Snake Users, Buckcherry will Greet Fans at the Company’s Booth during NAMM

ANAHEIM, CA, JANUARY 25, 2012 ― Hard rock group Buckcherry can jam out more than ever thanks to The RapcoHorizon Company, a leading manufacturer of audio/video interfacing and cable equipment. Whether they’re on tour or at an individual performance, Buckcherry’s band members and techs all rely on the quality of RapcoHorizon’s custom splitter snakes and RoadHog cables. The band will also be signing autographs at the company’s booth during the 2013 NAMM Show (Hall C, Booth 4558) on Sunday, January 27 at 12 p.m.

Designed for the working musician, the RoadHog cables are road ready and tour tough, employing the most rugged constructions without sacrificing sound quality. Buckcherry used the RoadHog cables most recently on its 15-stop UK tour from northern Scotland to southern England, where the cables stood up to all the abuses typical of a hard rock tour.

“Out of all the shows we played in Europe, we didn’t have one audio incident,” says Buckcherry Tour Manager, Production Manager and Front-of-House Engineer Stephen Shaw. “When it comes to the RoadHog cables, I never have a problem with something coming up. If that does happen, it’s usually the microphone, not the RapcoHorizon stuff. It just takes another potential mishap out of the equation.”

RoadHog cables are built with PVC outer jackets that are durable and thick, yet flexible, and pure copper conductors and shields. This design ensures that the RoadHog cables provide an advanced sound and reliable operation for Buckcherry and other touring bands.

“I started using RapcoHorizon cables during my previous roles with Foreigner and Selena Gomez,” says A.J. “Jukebox” Srybnik, Buckcherry guitar tech. “I had such a good experience—they were reliable, clear and had an impressive single response and durability—the best I’d seen. So, when I started with Buckcherry in 2011 and saw they were using various cabling, I knew it was time to make the call to RapcoHorizon.”

RapcoHorizon cut and labeled every cable to the band’s desired method of organization,, making for easier setup and use. This way, whether it’s running the microphone and instrument cables to the main RapcoHorizon snake behind the drums, or running the vocals to another RapcoHorizon snake down stage, the cable setup saves the band’s crew members from wasting time figuring out what goes where.

“RapcoHorizon has beyond amazing customer service,” adds Shaw. “I can’t imagine working with anyone else. They are just fantastic, going over and above the call of duty. As for the cables, they are well built and do exactly what they are supposed to do. My confidence level is so high with these products that if something goes wrong they are usually the last thing I check.”

RapcoHorizon RoadHog cables are designed to work perfectly no matter how often they are put to use. Srybnik says that employing them every night to run audio to his panel board and effects pedals has been a great improvement from the previous setup. Another benefit of the RapcoHorizon cables is their ability to coil nicely. The quality of the cables and flexible jacket ensure that they not only lay flat on stage, but also roll up easily without causing bends.

“The guys can stomp on the RoadHog cables all night with their boots, and no matter what they seem to do to the cables, I know I can always count on them to work,” concludes Srybnik. “With other brands, the connectors often have a tendency to come apart during wear-and-tear, but not the RapcoHorizon ones. They have great strain relief and are very durable. The way these cables are manufactured is just exceptional. Using an all-RapcoHorizon rig, I can hear and feel the difference in my cable response compared to the original assorted cables.”

Srybnik says that the guitar and bass players have also noticed a difference in their sound since the RapcoHorizon cables became a Buckcherry standard. He has even been able to get a little more gain and EQ from his gear now that he’s all RoadHog.

Shaw has been with Buckcherry for more than eight years. Prior to joining the group, he worked for such performers as Kid Rock, Chevelle, Drowning Pool and System of a Down, and also toured with the comedian Dane Cook. Srybnik began working with Buckcherry in late 2011. Since then, he has introduced RapcoHorizon into the audio arsenal for the rapper Jay-Z.

Buckcherry is currently promoting its new album, Confessions, set for release on February 19, 2013. Having spent the holidays at home, the band recently took off for a U.S. and Canadian tour.

The RapcoHorizon Company, located in Jackson, Missouri, is one of the world’s largest manufacturers and suppliers of audio, video, home theater, data and telecommunications cable in both bulk wire and assemblies. Used worldwide by concert touring sound companies, video and sound contractors, recording studios, system integrators, audiophiles and musicians, The RapcoHorizon Company’s products provide optimal flexibility and premium performance. The company’s state-of-the-art Custom Shop can modify existing products or build new devices to meet any need.

The RapcoHorizon Company RoadHog Cables are the Go-To Solution for Rock Bands Around the Globe

Foreigner and Theory of a Deadman to Sign Autographs at the RapcoHorizon Booth during the NAMM Show

ANAHEIM, CA, JANUARY 25, 2013The RapcoHorizon Company, a leading manufacturer of audio/video interfacing and cable equipment, continues to make waves among the rock community as its RoadHog cables are being used regularly by such high-profile bands as Foreigner and Theory of a Deadman. Both bands will be signing autographs during the NAMM Show at the RapcoHorizon booth (Hall C, Booth 4558). Foreigner will be greeting fans on Saturday, January 26 at 1 p.m. and Theory of a Deadman will be there on Saturday, January 26 at 3 p.m.

Having recently become a RapcoHorizon endorsed artist, the legendary British-American rock group Foreigner relies on the RoadHog cables, including the company’s new RoadHog SilverHog cables, for every performance. With RoadHog running audio for the guitars and speakers, and SilverHog on the drums and keyboards, the band continues to rock as loud as the first day it hit the music scene.

“I love the RapcoHorizon cables,” says Lorenzo Banda, monitor engineer for Foreigner. “The band’s Front of House Engineer, Brian Simon, and I can hear a clear difference in what the cables have brought to us since we made the upgrade to RapcoHorizon. All of the detail that RapcoHorizon puts into building a cable just blows me away. It is done exactly the way I would do it if I were designing the cables myself. RapcoHorizon spared no expense in making sure we were taken care of and we owe them a lot of credit for that.”

Fresh off a 64-day U.S. and Canadian tour, the Canadian rock group Theory of a Deadman also uses the RoadHog cables for every show. With a rig full of RoadHog and RoadHog SilverHog cables, and RapcoHorizon custom sub snakes, the company’s products run audio to and from almost every piece of the band’s set.

“We’ve tried a lot of different cables in the five years that I’ve been with Theory,” says Harry Mapes, drum and playback tech for Theory of a Deadman. “The RapcoHorizon cables deliver unsurpassed audio quality and are the most roadworthy cables we’ve come across. They are well built and hold up unlike anything we’ve ever dealt with. They are also super durable and deliver great audio no matter what rugged treatment we put them through. We can rely on them to just plug and play every time. The SilverHog, which is a much heavier gauge, once you solder your connection, it just holds no matter what. You’re going to be in good shape after that for a long time.”

RapcoHorizon RoadHog cables are designed with a highly rugged construction, ensuring they stand up to the harshest of touring conditions. Built with durable and thick, yet flexible, PVC outer jackets, the cables boast pure copper conductors and shields. These qualities make the cables road ready and tour tough without sacrificing sound quality. The construction of the jacket also guarantees that the cables not only lie flat on stage, but also roll up easily without any bends.

The latest addition to the RoadHog family, SilverHog is a series of high-end touring cables without the high-end price tag. Built with the original RoadHog jacket, SilverHog cables also have pure silver-plated copper conductors and shields. This upgrade provides a link between ultimate sound quality and extreme durability.

Founded by veteran English musicians Mick Jones and Ian McDonald and American vocalist Lou Gramm, Foreigner has released nine albums since 1976. The group, which boasts a total of 27 platinum album awards, continues to tour the world today. They were most recently seen headlining the Royal Caribbean Rock Legends Cruise, which hosted the likes of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Blue Oyster Cult, Paul Rodgers and Kansas.

Formed in 2001, rock band Theory of a Deadman hails from Vancouver, British Columbia. With four full-length LPs, the band quickly rose to popularity, garnering seven top-10 hits on the Mainstream Rock charts, including two number-one hits. The band’s third release, Scars and Souvenirs, went platinum.

The RapcoHorizon Company, located in Jackson, Missouri, is one of the world’s largest manufacturers and suppliers of audio, video, home theater, data and telecommunications cable in both bulk wire and assemblies. Used worldwide by concert touring sound companies, video and sound contractors, recording studios, system integrators, audiophiles and musicians, The RapcoHorizon Company’s products provide optimal flexibility and premium performance.

Folk Pop Band SHEL Among First in U.S. to Use DPA’s New d:facto™ II Vocal Mic

Emerging group performs at the 2013 NAMM Show to illustrate the benefits of the company’s new Vocal Microphone

ANAHEIM, JANUARY 24, 2013 – The folk pop band SHEL, longtime supporters of DPA Microphones, has become one of the first group of artists in the U.S. to use the company’s new d:facto™ II Vocal Microphone. The group recently took the microphone on the road for performances in Denver and Salt Lake City. Included on this tour is a final stop in Anaheim, where SHEL will perform during the 2013 NAMM Show at DPA Microphones’ booth (# 6996) throughout the entire event. Their headline performance will take place on Thursday, January 24 at 4 p.m.

“We tested the new d:facto II at home before we hit the road and absolutely loved it,” says Hannah Holbrook, who sings and plays keyboard for the band. “Having now had the chance to use it a couple times, we found the microphone to be very crisp and clear. It makes our vocals sound more natural and allows for our voices to be heard above the instruments, which is always important.”

Already fans of DPA’s d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Mics, which the sisters use on their violin and djembe drums, the band was familiar with the quality sound for which DPA Microphones is known. The new d:facto lived up to their expectations, bringing all the clarity of DPA to their vocals. Those following the group are even taking notice of the increased clarity of their vocals.

“We all keep using the word ‘pristine’ to describe the sound,” continues Holbrook. “At our stop in Denver, one of our fans who attends almost all of our shows told us that it was the best we ever sounded. I think the d:facto really helped bring our performance to the next level. We are all very pleased with these new microphones.”

Capturing a true studio sound for the live stage, the d:facto II is the latest addition to DPA’s d:facto line. It offers an extraordinarily natural sound with high separation and extreme SPL handling, giving users unlimited possibilities for their performances. The d:facto II also provides improved audio performance, as it is superbly linear in frequency and phase, both on- and off-axis, while its impressive definition and accuracy reproduces a singer’s voice effortlessly. In addition to use with the new wired DPA handle, the d:facto II provides singers and engineers with the added benefit of a state-of-the-art adapter system. This allows for seamless integration with many professional wireless systems, including Sony, Lectrosonics, Shure, Wisycom and Sennheiser.

SHEL is comprised of four sisters, Sarah, Hannah, Eva and Liza Holbrook. Classically trained musicians hailing from the artistic community of Fort Collins, Colorado, SHEL blends classical music with pop elements for an eccentric sound that is youthful and upbeat, yet highly emotive. The Holbrook sisters grew up in a musical household and first appeared on stage as backup musicians for their singer-songwriter father, Andrew Holbrook. Their latest EP, When the Dragon Came Down, was co-produced by six-time Grammy Award winner, Brent Maher. The band has attracted the attention of such major media outlets as NPR and ABC, and has toured nationwide, playing fairs and festivals, including SXSW, International Folk Alliance, Lilith Fair, Four Corners Folk Festival and Cornerstone.

SHEL’s latest stop in Anaheim will put its members’ talents on full display for the four days of the 2013 NAMM Show. In addition to hearing full performances, attendees will have the unique opportunity to hear the different mics being employed in SHEL’s setup at personal listening stations located in the DPA Microphones booth.
“We are really excited about performing at NAMM,” concludes Holbrook. “I think it is really cool how the d:facto and d:vote microphones will be running audio to personal mixers for guests to listen to our music at personal listening stations. I love the idea of being able to listen to each different type of microphone and hear how good the audio sounds.”

ABOUT DPA:
DPA Microphones A/S is the leading Danish Professional Audio manufacturer of high quality condenser microphones and microphone solutions for professional applications in studio, broadcast, theatre, video/film and sound reinforcement environments.
