AURALEX PROVIDES EXQUISITE DINING EXPERIENCE AT NEW YORK’S TRENDY EMPELLÓN TAQUERIA

NEW YORK, NY — Auralex® Acoustics, Inc., the industry leader in innovative sound control solutions, recently retrofitted the ceiling of Empellón Taqueria, a premier casual-dining Mexican restaurant in New York City, with Auralex ELiTE™ C44 ProPanels™. The ELiTE C44 ProPanels help absorb additional sound energy throughout the busy restaurant, providing a memorable dining experience for all the senses.

Dan Ross at Dale Pro Audio consulted for the project in terms of placement and quantity of panels, to optimize the effects of the product. “This install was a retrofit, based on the need to reduce the sound level of the restaurant, as it was very reflective,” says Ross. “The restaurant was getting great reviews, food wise, but the common complaint was the noise level. After installing several Auralex C44 panels on the ceiling, the owner and customers have heard a discernable difference in the sound level.”

Auralex’s Elite C44 ProPanel is a 4′x4′ absorption panel with a 2″ thickness, providing a cost-effective and professional broadband treatment option when a significant amount of coverage is needed. Its overall NRC of 1.05 makes it the perfect choice for controlling many common acoustical problems at a wide range of frequencies. C44 ProPanels are available in sandstone fabric and are typically available for immediate shipment.

“We love the Auralex ProPanel product and it is working out great at our restaurant,” says Empellón Taqueria Operating Partner David Rodolitz. “The panels have drastically cut down the noise and sound in the restaurant, making it a much more enjoyable dining experience for our guests. Not only are the panels extremely functional, but they also look quite nice and add to the overall design of the space.”

Founded in 2011 by head chef and owner Alex Stupak, Empellón Taqueria opened its doors with the intention of treating tacos with a high level of respect and serving them in an unpretentious and social environment. Empellón offers a diverse selection of tacos and other casual Mexican fare. Empellón’s approach to cuisine is informed by authenticity and tradition but is not limited by it.

“I am so impressed with Auralex, that I have already ordered additional panels for our new restaurant Empellón Cocina, which is slated to open in the early months of 2012,” adds Rodolitz.

Anton/Bauer Weathers The Cold, Powers Production Of Documentary Shot In Canadian Arctic

SHELTON, CT – While filming on location in sub-zero temperatures, it wasn’t long before Producer Joe Lloyd of Curbsyde Productions realized that in order to keep his gear running he would need a reliable power solution, able to withstand the brutal elements of northern Canada. Anton/Bauer, a brand of The Vitec Group, and a premier global provider of batteries, chargers, lighting and other mobile power systems for the professional broadcast, video and film industries provided the solution. Lloyd turned to the Anton/Bauer DIONIC 90 and QR-DSLR Gold Mount to help film “Going Through RTW: The North,” a documentary which follows a group of travelers as they explore the arctic portion of northern Canada by motorcycle.
The eight-episode documentary is part of a larger series entitled Reconnecting With Canada, that documents motorcycle enthusiasts as they tour the different regions of Canada. According to Canadian-born Lloyd, the series evolved from his desire to become acquainted with his homeland after exploring other countries. “After seeing a variety of other countries, I wanted to experience my own,” he explains. “Canada is very much a winter country; experiencing Canada means experiencing the snow, which provided an extreme environment for filming. We needed a power source that could endure in such conditions.”

Anton/Bauer’s reputation as a provider of sustainable products is what drew Lloyd to the company’s power products. He relied upon eight DIONIC 90 batteries to provide the energy for his three Canon EOS 5D Mark II DSLR cameras, which each used one battery per day over a period of roughly five weeks. Unlike other batteries he has used on productions in the past, the DIONIC 90 batteries were able to last for just under four hour stretches in the brutal cold, a substantial feat considering battery life in the severe cold is extremely diminished. Lloyd also cites the battery’s other distinguishing features as the major factors in completing the documentary. “The fact that we were able to charge the batteries on the road through an inverter was also a major plus.”

The DIONIC 90 was designed by Anton/Bauer to deliver consistently reliable performance even in the most challenging shooting environments on Earth. It offers a RealTime display that continually updates the operator on how much run-time remains and on the state of the current charge. Weighing only 1.7 pounds, the DIONIC 90 can be transported without restriction under the IATA and DOT safety regulations (http://www.antonbauer.com/Support/TransportationInformation). The 91 WH battery can handle a maximum load of 6 amps, and offers run-times ranging from six hours at 15 watts to 1.75 hours at 50 watts.

Lloyd’s experience with Anton/Bauer products was so positive that he is committed to relying upon them for future projects. “Anton/Bauer’s facilitation of our production was outstanding. Moving forward, Anton/Bauer will be a key part of our creative process,” he says.

AVIOM PERSONAL MIXING SYSTEM ON THE HEAR US FROM HEAVEN TOUR WITH JARED ANDERSON

Musicians Count on the Company’s A-16II Personal Mixers during Multi-city Tour

WEST CHESTER, PA, NOVEMBER 29, 2011 — Aviom Personal Mixers are improving setup and sound on Jared Anderson’s Hear Us from Heaven Tour, in which the popular Christian singer and musician has been traveling throughout the country, visiting churches and other venues for a night of prayer, worship and music. Although the tour takes Anderson and his band to a variety of venues, each with its own unique audio and equipment setup, the Aviom A-16II Personal Mixers ensure that each musician’s monitor mix remains the same, night after night.

Recently performing at churches and college venues in Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Oklahoma, the Hear Us from Heaven Tour has been supplied with sound by Sight & Sound Technologies, a company that specializes in equipment sales and training in the areas of sound lighting and video in churches. For this tour, Sight & Sound Technologies chose to provide the band with the Aviom A-16IIs because they needed a way to address monitoring quickly and easily. They also sought the ability to allow musicians to save and recall their personalized monitor mixes during the hectic setup stage.

“The Aviom system has been a real lifesaver on this tour,” says Kris Johnson, chief operating officer of Sight & Sound Technologies and the audio engineer for the tour. “The A-16II is really helpful for the guys in the band, as they can use the same mixers every night, save their mixes, then recall those mixes—regardless of the sound system we’re plugging into, which is huge for us. All of the guys are just raving about the consistency that they’re getting from the Aviom system.”

Johnson works on a variety of different consoles, depending on what is available at each venue, and he’s handled everything from a Behringer EURODESK mixer to a Midas Pro3 digital console. By using an Aviom AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module, he is able to provide a monitor feed directly to the Aviom Personal Mixers, while also plugging into the existing set of inputs to the main sound system available at the church or venue. This allows the band to get consistency in their monitor mixes and Johnson to integrate quickly into the house sound system without additional gear or hassle. All five members of the band have their own A-16IIs that they use with IEMs (in-ear monitors), with the exception of Anderson, who runs his through a powered speaker.

No matter what the venue or setup, Johnson knows the Aviom A-16IIs will see him through the performance, especially when it comes to monitoring. “We’re in churches that have every type of equipment you could ever want, from mega churches like Bethany World Prayer Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, all the way down to much smaller churches that don’t even use a regular drum kit,” he notes. “We see a lot of different types of setups, so Aviom literally saves the day when it comes to monitoring. Otherwise, my drummer is on some sort of headphone amp or a little hotspot speaker, and neither of those are any good to hear over his drums.”

As for the Aviom AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module, Johnson appreciates that its Thru feature is not dependent on the head amp’s volume. “The Thru feature is just a straight pass through, not like some systems, where if you adjust the gain or head amp, it adjusts your signal going to the board. The Aviom AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module doesn’t do that. It’s a straight pass through, allowing me to get the gain I need at front of house, but I can also adjust the gain going to the guys’ in-ears with the head amp. I really like the versatility the Aviom equipment provides.”

Sight and Sound Technologies was started in 2007 by Kris Johnson and his wife Tara. The business quickly grew and the duo began running the company fulltime in 2009, helping new and existing churches implement audio, video, lighting and portable staging systems. From start-up systems for new church plants and multi-site campuses to designing building systems for existing churches, Sight and Sound Technologies is happy to handle single item purchases all the way up to complete audio, lighting and video systems.
