DPA Upgrades Popular 4099 Instrument Mic Series to d:vote™ at InfoComm 2012

LAS VEGAS, JUNE 13, 2012 – DPA Microphones, the manufacturer of high-level reference and headset microphones, is presenting its d:vote™ range of instrument microphones at InfoComm 2012 (Booth C9850). DPA’s d:vote is ideal for live performance settings requiring high-quality, discreet mics that are effortless to change. Building on the success of the highly acclaimed 4099 instrument clip mic series, d:vote features an enhanced shock mount to provide even better absorption.

DPA’s 4099 instrument microphones have been widely embraced by internationally known artists, including Sting, Randy Brecker, Wayne Shorter, John Patitucci and Bobby Ricketts. More natural sounding than any internal microphone or pickup, d:vote rejects unwanted noise and accurately captures the true voice of acoustic instruments. Now, just one microphone model can beautifully reinforce an entire orchestra.

In addition to the shock-absorption upgrades, the new d:vote instrument microphones now feature a cable available in heavy duty 2.2 mm (0.087 in) and 1.55 mm (0.061 in) diameter versions, which can be detached from the end of the gooseneck. Further flexibility is available through an extension unit for the gooseneck supplied with the mic, which lengthens its neck by 50 percent.

“After a long introduction, the 4099s have more than tripled in sales over the last two years, and continue to post strong sales numbers,” says DPA CEO Christian Poulsen. “When upgrading our mics to the d:vote, we have listened to what our users want. The improvements make it even more durable and less sensitive to noise. The new extension unit brings maximum value to demanding applications, achieving just the right sound from the instrument.”

The d:vote condenser mics feature supercardioid polar patterns for highly uniform off-axis frequency response and superior gain before feedback. Capable of handling high sound-pressure levels, these microphones live up to DPA’s pedigree of breathtaking clarity and richness.

Despite its tiny, discreet size and lightweight design, d:vote is rugged and stable, with a versatile and extendable gooseneck that provides stable positioning. The mics can easily be unclipped and repositioned, or moved to another instrument, with only one hand. d:vote’s microphone mounting system is designed to be extremely gentle, never marring the finish of an instrument.

The d:vote MicroDot connector and more than 35 DPA adapters ensure compatibility with virtually any wireless system. The product can also be used as a standard 48V phantom-powered microphone via its supplied XLR connector.

Clear-Com Expands Optocore Partnership with Distribution of BroaMan DiViNe V3R-FX-INTERCOM with SDI at InfoComm 2012

Offers Digital Distribution of Audio, Video Data and Intercom Over Fiber

LAS VEGAS, JUNE 13, 2012 ─ Clear-Com®, a global leader in critical voice communication systems, has expanded its partnership with Optocore/BroaMan and will now distribute the new BroaMan DiViNe V3R-FX-INTERCOM with SDI. InfoComm 2012 attendees will have the opportunity to see demonstrations of the DiViNe V3R-FX-INTERCOM with SDI at Clear-Com’s booth (Booth C10345).

Ideal for any setup that requires multiple feeds of high-quality audio, video, data and intercom, the DiViNe V3R-FX-INTERCOM-SDI provides scalable, protocol-independent routing, repeating, transport and distribution of multiple signals over optical fiber. The V3R-FX-INTERCOM-SDI is equipped with (four) four-wire RJ45 matrix ports and (four) four-wire RJ45 panel ports so that either matrices or intercom panels can be connected to the unit using standard CAT cables. Users can send audio and control data from Clear-Com key panels or matrices transparently through the optical network. The unit is capable of housing up to six SD/HD/3G-SDI coaxial video inputs, or outputs that are converted to and from single-mode DiViNe optical fiber links.

“Whether it’s a transportation hub, a university looking to broadcast sporting events and live music performances internally, or professional broadcasters handling a large remote event, the ability to set up a video, audio, communications and data backbone quickly and efficiently is there,” says Bob Boster, President of Clear-Com. “We are happy to partner with Optocore once again to bring further connectivity options to our users.”

Along with the DiViNe V3R-FX-INTERCOM-SDI, Clear-Com also distributes the V3R-FX-INTERCOM and X6R-FX-INTERCOM Optocore intercom interfaces.

To demonstrate the full capabilities of the DiViNe V3R-FX-INTERCOM-SDI at InfoComm, a fiber-optic cable will be installed between the Clear-Com booth (C10345) and the Optocore/BroaMan booth (Booth C10350). Video signals from a HD camera situated at the Clear-Com booth will be transported over the fiber cable to the Optocore booth, where a DiViNe V3R-FX-INTERCOM-SDI will be in place that will take the video out to a video monitor. The Optocore booth will also have the ability to control the camera. In addition, Clear-Com’s V-Series panels will be placed at both booths, connected back to a Clear-Com Eclipse Matrix, enabling the Clear-Com and Optocore staff to talk with one another.

SMALL TREE TEAMS UP WITH TECHNOLOGIES FOR WORSHIP FOR MIRACLE OF SPEED GIVEAWAY

At InfoComm 2012, Small Tree and Technologies for Worship Magazine announce the launch of the Miracle of Speed promotion to provide one lucky church facility in the United States with a GraniteSTOR TITANIUM8, a high-performance, capacity dense, dedicated video editing shared storage appliance with advanced file sharing enabling simple, real-time collaboration to maximize post-production workflow. During InfoComm, Small Tree is showcasing its shared storage systems at the Technologies for Worship pavilion (Booth C5654).

As churches across the country continue to expand production efforts to enable congregations to enjoy inspirational sermons from the comfort of their homes, the demands on post-production teams have never been greater. Unfortunately, for many church-based editing teams, tight budgets and outdated technology make meeting deadlines more difficult than it should be. With the Miracle of Speed giveaway, Small Tree and Technologies for Worship hope to make life easier for one editing team desperately in need of a workflow overhaul.

“The evolution of technology has provided churches with greater opportunity to reach and engage with worshipers,” said Corky Seeber, president of Small Tree. “Unfortunately, in an attempt to save money, many facilities back-up files to low-cost drives, which is a very inefficient and ineffective approach. Ultimately, such a solution can cost more money as there’s no file protection, so if there’s a failure with the drive all of the work will need to be recreated.”

With an MSRP of $11,195, TITANIUM8 is the newest in Small Tree’s expanding GraniteSTOR line of high performance, affordable Ethernet-based shared storage systems. TITANIUM8 is a 2U rack-mount solution configurable up to 10 GbE or eight 10GbE ports and storage capacity from 8TB to 72 TB, while delivering up to 35 streams of ProRes 422. To facilitate set-up, Small Tree’s experts will assist with remote installation of the system.

Churches can enter the Miracle of Speed giveaway with a tweet on why their church can use the TITANIUM8 solution – including #SmallTreeSpeed in their tweet – or with a post on Small Tree’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/smalltreecomm). While not required to enter the contest, church post-production teams are invited to create a brief video – no longer than three minutes in length – explaining why their church needs the Miracle of Speed and can include a link to their video in their tweet or post. Small Tree will choose the winner based on the effectiveness of their entry.

“Through the Miracle of Speed giveaway, we’re hoping to raise awareness in the church production and post-production communities of the value in protecting your assets by investing in affordable shared storage technology,” Seeber continued. “The horror stories from professionals of lost projects or headaches in having to recover files are never pretty. Churches need to know that you don’t need to install a cost-prohibitive Fibre Channel system to improve workflow while getting peace of mind.”

The winning facility will be included in an installation article to be featured in Technologies for Worship Magazine.

Christie Raises The Bar With New 4K Projector And Series of Brightest 110V Projectors

Christie today announced the expansion of its 3-chip DLP platform with the introduction of the

Christie D4K25

, and new 14,000 lumen Christie M Series models. The new projectors target a variety of applications that require high brightness, superior performance and vivid, clear images.

Award-Winning Christie M Series Adds New Brighter Models
The popular M Series – including three new Roadster models and three 3D-enabled Mirage models – feature SXGA+, HD and WUXGA resolution, portrait mode capabilities, and 14,000 lumens – the highest brightness available at 110V. The projectors are designed for auditoriums, boardrooms, conference rooms, houses of worship, post-production, and live event applications that need the reliability of 3-chip DLP technology and high brightness for piercing through ambient lighting.

Featuring built-in Christie Twist, the new M Series models are equipped with two hot swappable mercury lamps for additional cost savings since the high brightness is achieved with two lamps instead of four.

“The additions to our award-winning M Series platform offer higher brightness than previously available at 110V, and with the dual lamp system, customers are receiving unparalleled performance and the best return on their investment,” said George Tsintzouras, senior director product management, Business Products, Christie.

Christie D4K25 Provides High-Brightness Solution
The Christie D4K25 targets high resolution markets including amusement parks, automotive designers, planetariums, and applications where native 4K resolution for precision image detail is critical. Featuring the ability to use different lamp powers – extending lamp life and reducing cost of ownership – the Christie D4K25 is equipped with automated image alignment for maximum lamp output and brightness.

“With this 3-chip DLP offering, Christie now has a 25,000 lumen projector with 4K resolution powered by 220V to meet the market demand for applications requiring high resolution and high brightness,” continued Tsintzouras. “DLP offers darker blacks and brighter whites for a more true-to-life images and has superior lifecycle performance. In launching the new M Series models and the Christie D4K25, Christie is thrilled to be pushing the boundaries on what DLP technology brings to the market.”

The Christie D4K25 and the new M Series models have a three-year parts and labor warranty and ship in July 2012.
