Technomad and Onyx AudioVisual Upgrade Woodberry Forest School Sound Systems

Integrator chooses all-in-one Technomad Turnkey PA System to reproduce high-quality voice and music indoors at Virginia school

BOSTON, APRIL 2, 2012Woodberry Forest School, situated on the banks of the Rapidan River near Charlottesville, Virginia, is an historic boy’s prep school situated on 1200 acres of land that once belonged to General William Madison, the brother of President James Madison. Using Technomad advanced audio solutions, the school has upgraded sound systems in two athletic facilities in alignment with campus-wide building preservation efforts.

Onyx AudioVisual, a Virginia-based IT consulting company with expertise in audio/video, network infrastructure and lighting, designed and integrated the new sound systems. The company chose a Technomad Turnkey PA System to bring multiple loudspeakers and all required signal processing systems together into a single, integrated solution.

The complete system, deployed in a 70-volt configuration to accommodate lengthy cable runs across four zones, reproduces intelligible voice and high-quality music over long distances for athletic meets, games and other activities in both areas. The installations include 11 Technomad Vernal loudspeakers in the pool area and 10 in the Reily Wrestling Room, delivering high-fidelity sound and broad audio dispersion from a compact form factor.

Onyx AudioVisual also chose Technomad for its rugged, weatherproof loudspeaker designs. The project required environmentally tough loudspeakers that could withstand the humidity and moisture associated with indoor pool environments.

Bart Cardea, sales director for Onyx AudioVisual, said his team balanced perfect audio detail inside the pool area and the wrestling room to achieve pristine athletic event sound. The upgrades substantially improve sound quality around the galleries, bleachers, pool and mats to help spectators follow the action during events.

“The sound needed to be excellent quality for sports writers, fans and athletes,” said Cardea. “We needed to preserve the historic integrity of the areas, while delivering state-of-the-art sound technology. We chose Technomad because of their reputation for superior sound, easy setup and environmental durability. They exceeded our specifications for sound while meeting the environmental challenges we faced.”

Cardea added that the Technomad Turnkey PA System design established a new central audio headend from which all cable runs originate. Technomad Turnkey PA Systems include a pre-wired amplifier, six-channel mixer, cables, connectors and open rack space for audio source equipment — all delivered in a compact, durable equipment rack.

ABOUT TECHNOMAD
Technomad LLC, founded in 1995, designs and manufactures loudspeaker systems for the professional audio and security/military technology industries. The company invented the first reliable full-range weatherproof loudspeaker and now offers nine models ranging in power from 60-watt loudspeakers to 1250-watt subwoofers — most available in Turnkey PA System packages featuring amplifiers, mixers and other signal processing equipment in pre-wired racks.

ACIR to Host Yamaha CL Demo at Trump Taj Mahal

EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, N.J.—ACIR Professional will host a demo of the new Yamaha CL Digital Console Series on Thursday, April 5th from 12 Noon – 4:00 pm at the Trump Taj Mahal (Atlantic City), Xanadu Theatre. Yamaha Systems Application Engineer, Kevin Kimmel, and Regional District Manager, Bob Quinones, will be on hand to demo the new CL console and will also present the new Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5045 Primary Source Enhancer and Dugan-MY16 card. All audio professionals are welcome. RSVP: to Lisa Young (young.lisa7@gmail.com) by April 2, 2012.

Yamaha CL Series Digital Console Series: The Yamaha CL Series is a Dante network-based console featuring remote I/O for a faster, more responsive Yamaha system solution. All three CL models in the Centralogic™ series, only differentiated by frame size and input capability, feature 24 mix buses, 8 matrix buses, plus stereo and mono outputs, and 16 DCAs. The footprint of all three CL consoles is small, yet powerful and has been developed specifically for sound reinforcement applications such as performing arts venues, theaters, houses of worship, touring, and remote broadcast. The high output bus count will be a great benefit to live broadcast and monitor applications.

Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5045: The new Rupert Neve Designs Portico 5045 Primary Source Enhancer has been developed for, and is distributed exclusively by, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. Primarily used in live sound applications, the RND 5045 is a 2-channel analog, 1RU device that not only enables up to 16dB of additional gain before feedback when conditions allow, but because it is a dynamics-only processor, the integrity of the original signal is preserved. The device reduces background sounds and enhances the main audio source, providing clarity and warmth to podium, lavaliere, and headset mics, as well as in extreme situations, such as referee mics.

Dugan-MY16 Card:
The Dugan-MY16 card is designed for current model Yamaha digital mixers and processors including Yamaha 01V96, DM1000, 02R96, DM2000, M7CL, LS9, DSP5D, PM5D, and DME24/64N. Dan Dugan Sound Design automatic mic mixing products eliminate cueing errors, reduce feedback and ambient noise pickup, allow for smooth transitions between talkers, and provide consistent system gain no matter how many mics are open. The card can handle up to 64 live microphones, and is remote controllable.
