DIEST, Belgium – HARMAN Professional is announcing that its Benelux distributor, AudioXL, has been named the exclusive distributor of the JBL Intellivox and AXYS loudspeaker products for the Benelux region. In October 2013, HARMAN acquired Duran Audio and its flagship Intellivox and AXYX lines, before incorporating them into the JBL product lineup.

“We are very excited about having the Intellivox and AXYS products as part of the JBL portfolio,” explained William van Druten, General Manager at AudioXL. “Intellivox was the first digitally steerable array on the market and the engineers from Duran Audio are widely regarded as the pioneers of and the authority on this technology. Intellivox is a great solution for delivering clear and intelligible speech in difficult acoustic environments and there are already many high-profile applications of the products around the world. This, combined with AudioXL’s experienced and skilled team and the wider portfolio of HARMAN products, is a recipe for success. I am sure we can continue to grow the market for the product and deliver fantastic solutions for many more projects.”

In recent years, Intellivox has become the preferred loudspeaker solution for major railway stations in Holland. Intellivox has not only been chosen for its ability to deliver the ultimate intelligibility but also for its subjective sound quality and natural sound reproduction. Stations now installed with Intellivox include: Den Haag, Rotterdam, Utrecht and Eindhoven.

The product has also enjoyed great success in the worship and AV markets. The AXYS range is also widely used by many rental companies in the region and is known for delivering transparent sound reproduction even at high sound pressure levels.

“This new relationship with AudioXL presents some really exciting opportunities,” Nick Screen, HARMAN Sales Director – Duran Audio Products. “With Intellivox it has always been about selling solutions, but it was a niche solution for intelligibility and many clients want a complete audio system. The HARMAN acquisition and the partnership with AudioXL means that we can now offer a complete HARMAN-based sound system solution that delivers Intellivox-quality intelligibility. Combine this with AudioXL’s team and large customer base and you have a winning formula.”

HARMAN’s Martin Professional Helps Foster Immersive Experience for Thousands at Eagle Brook Church

CENTERVILLE, Minnesota – When a person enters a service at Eagle Brook Church, the congregation’s goal is for them to be welcomed by real people, challenged by biblical messages that address everyday problems and inspired by excellent music. With 18,000 attendees worshiping at 6 locations throughout the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area, the scale of Eagle Brook Church makes providing a personalized, immersive experience a challenge. Making the music even more inspiring, however, became a little less daunting of a task with the installation of HARMAN’s Martin Professional lighting fixtures.

Deployed to compliment the message and the music at the Lino Lakes campus are 16 Mac Viper Air FX fixtures and eight Martin 250 Washes. For Easter and other special occasions, the church supplements its installed fixtures by renting other Martin Fixtures. The church’s Blaine campus boasts 10 Mac 700 Profiles and four Mac 250 Entours. At Spring Lake Park, six Mac 250 Entours and six Mac 250 washes are used, and eight washes and six Mac 250 Entours are used at the White Bear Lake campus.

Eagle Brook Church has come a long way since 1948, when it was founded as a Sunday school initially attended by only 19. Today, for weekend services, the teaching pastor’s message is delivered live at the Lino Lakes location and broadcast via simulcast technology to the Blaine, Coon Rapids, Spring Lake Park, White Bear Lake and Woodbury locations.

While the pastor’s message is simulcast, each Eagle Brook campus has its own music. Nate Nohling, Lead Lighting Director, oversees lighting and scenic design across the organization and works closely with Tom Clark and Travis Leatherman who help to design and program across the 6 campuses. “My goal is to create an immersive environment that enhances the worship experience,” he said. “We don’t want the lights to become the focal point or draw attention away from the experience. Instead, we want the lighting to match the energy of the music. To attain that, I work closely with the music pastors to make sure my design is cohesive with their vision.”

To help meet that challenge and many others, Nohling said that Eagle Brook Church was a Martin house before he joined the organization more than two years ago and that it will remain one for the foreseeable future. “We’re very particular about the brand of our campuses,” he said. “A part of that brand is making sure we have the same quality of fixtures to achieve the same type of environment across our campuses. Sticking with Martin fixtures helps us by having consistency when it comes to color palettes and overall output quality of our lighting.”

In the end, though, what’s important to Nohling and other members of Eagle Brook Church’s leadership team is making sure that everyone who attends a service has a deeply personal and immersive worship experience. “Lighting plays an important role in how people experience our brand,” he said. “And when you have different spaces, lit by different fixtures, creating the same lighting experience with different rigs is a challenge. That’s why maintaining a consistent design throughout our sites is a key part of my role. We need to have one design sensibility that we can draw on to create and deliver a consistent look and feel across campuses. Utilizing Martin fixtures helps us to be confident that when you walk into any one of our campuses, it is going to look and feel like Eagle Brook Church.”

New Biamp Systems White Paper Finds Communication Technologies Fall Short of Current Collaboration Demands

Research reveals improved bottom line and a reduction in business travel as key benefits of increased investment in collaboration technologies

BEAVERTON, Oregon — Sept. 16, 2014 — Biamp Systems, a leading provider of innovative, networked media systems, has published a new white paper looking at the crucial role collaboration technologies play in today’s businesses. Titled “Clear Communications: Placing the End User at the Heart of Collaboration,” it highlights problems organizations reported as they expand working relationships over increasingly larger distances. With more than 37 percent of respondents stating that time is regularly wasted on conference calls due to unsuccessful attempts to connect and poor sound quality, businesses must address these issues or they may find themselves falling behind more efficient and productive competitors.

The report emphasizes the need for organizations to evolve their internal processes in order to cope with a workforce that continues to include numerous international locations. With 43 percent of respondent businesses having opened one or more offices over the past three years, and another 16 percent either planning or considering expansion into a new location, IT departments are under increasing pressure to ensure that teams are able to communicate effectively, despite being separated by continents, time zones, or cultures.

Investing funds solely in IT is not enough. The whitepaper recommends that IT and AV departments must work together closely in order to develop an appropriate solution. IT decision makers agreed — with 62 percent of respondents stating that AV systems that are networked into the existing IT infrastructure would increase productivity at their companies. 52 percent added that such AV systems could improve their company’s bottom line.

“Clear communication is the primary facilitator of good business relationships. With workforces becoming increasingly distributed around the globe, businesses cannot afford to be let down by the technology they use to enable collaboration,” said Graeme Harrison, Executive Vice President of Marketing at Biamp. “High quality conferencing exists, but the introduction of desktop conferencing solutions requires companies to invest thoughtfully so they gain all the benefits from this technology. Ensuring that clear, intelligible audio is included with the other capabilities is critical. Coordination between the IT department and the AV expert will enable effective collaboration.”

The white paper is now available for free download by visiting http://bit.ly/1y8Dkkz.

Wisconsin Realtors Association Upgrades to Transparent Teleconferencing via a Symetrix SymNet Radius AEC Dante Network Audio DSP

Wisconsin_Realtors_AssociationMADISON, WISCONSIN – SEPTEMBER 2014: Headquartered in Madison, the Wisconsin REALTORS® Association (WRA) is 13,000 members strong and one of the largest trade organizations in the Badger State. Among the many services that it offers its members, continuing education is perhaps the most prominent. Throughout most of its hundred-plus year history, members traveled to the WRA headquarters to keep current with seminars, workshops, and conferences, and its building contains flexible training and conference rooms to deliver those services. With the advent of modern telecommuting technologies, the WRA has sought to bring its continuing education to its members. However, the staff’s early experimentation with free web-based software and homespun A/V technology proved frustrating on both ends due to poor audio and video quality. WRA hired Peak Systems Group of Reedsburg, Wisconsin to update their rooms with modern remote conferencing technology, and the A/V integrator obliged with a new system centered on the uniquely functional Symetrix SymNet Radius AEC Dante network audio DSP.

“They were trying to adapt their existing technology for use with free web-based remote conferencing software,” said Jason Keagy, president of Peak Systems Group. “They set up a camera on a tripod and brought in a portable audio mixer, but making that all work correctly was not easy for someone without an A/V background. They had a lot of failures and poor audio quality led to a lot of frustration. Folks were struggling to understand the presentations, and they weren’t free to participate. On the video end, the staff tried to zoom the camera in on the screen, with predictable results.”

In addition to the entire pedigreed collection of audio processing modules that Symetrix has perfected, the SymNet Radius AEC includes connectivity and specialized processing to make remote conferencing transparent and pleasurable. The 1U rack unit contains eight mic/line wideband echo cancellers, eight line outputs, and four auxiliary line inputs. Each individual channel has AEC processed and direct outputs plus dedicated reference and auxiliary inputs, allowing any source connected over Dante to take advantage of the onboard processing. “They needed better audio for web feeds, as well as phone-in technology,” said Keagy. “The Radius AEC was the perfect choice. We used its expansion slot for a Symetrix 2 Line Analog Telephone Interface Card. The Radius AEC’s native Dante networking capability assured us that future system expansion, if needed, would be easy and cost-effective. But perhaps most importantly, our past experiences with Symetrix have always been predictable and trouble-free. Symetrix equipment just works – and it works well.”

Most of the system components are used in the training room, but the Radius AEC has enough inputs, outputs, processing power, and flexibility that it’s handling audio for the conference room as well. A Crestron digital media system delivers transparent A/V system control via a Crestron touch screen and coordinates video I/O and routing with the audio I/O and routing of the Radius AEC. For fine-scale control of audio processing, Peak Systems Group gave the WRA staff Symetrix ARC-WEB internet-based control, which they can access via their smartphones or via the training or conference room computers.

ABOUT SYMETRIX Symetrix is dedicated to making life sound better. As a world leader in the development and manufacturing of digital audio signal processing (DSP) systems and accessories, Symetrix provides best in class audio management solutions to businesses, schools, non-profits and government organizations.

NEW YORK CITY’S EXCLUSIVE UNION LEAGUE CLUB UPGRADES TO ASHLY

Union_League_Club_NYCNEW YORK, NEW YORK: The Union League Club of New York City was founded by Union loyalists during the Civil War and has grown since then to become one of the city’s most exclusive clubs, where the public-minded members of New York’s upper class meet away from the bustle of urban life. Its elegant clubhouse on East 32nd Street and Park Avenue in Manhattan thus serves as an oasis, and the Union League recently refurbished many of its rooms to add modern audio/visual technology where appropriate. Based on its functionality and rock-solid reliability, A/V integration firm Audio Production Services (Amawalk, New York) specified an Ashly ne24.24M Protea™ DSP Matrix Processor and an Ashly ne4250.70 Network Four-Channel Amplifier for the Union League Club’s new system.

Although most of the clubhouse areas provide a refuge from technology, club members requested video and audio in one of the large lounge spaces, the nearby coffee bar, and some ancillary lounge spaces. Inputs to the new system are many and include all manner of video feeds, wireless microphones for events, and iPod® connectivity. Those inputs feed into an Ashly ne24.24M matrix processor, which handles all of the routing, mixing and equalization. Audio Production Services biased the modular I/O of the ne24.24M to accommodate the huge number of inputs, reserving just four outputs to feed a four-channel Ashly ne4250.70 amplifier. Those four amplifier channels power 70-volt RCF ceiling speakers in four separate zones.

“I’ve used Ashly products on many previous installations,” said Simon Nathan, president of Audio Production Services. “They are very flexible and easy to work with. In addition, they are reliable, which was critical for the Union League clubhouse. Ashly’s Protea processing worked well with Key Digital’s user interface technology and allowed us to give the staff an iPad that could control the new A/V system. In all, it was a straightforward design and an easy installation, and the client is happy with its sound and performance.”

ABOUT ASHLY AUDIO Ashly Audio Inc. is recognized as a world leader in the design and manufacturing of high quality & high performance signal processing equipment and power amplification for use in the commercial sound contracting and professional audio markets. The 40-year old company is headquartered in Webster, New York U.S.A.

Technology preview at IBC: Ball Chaser from HARMAN’s Studer Enables Sports Broadcasters to Bring Viewers Closer to the Action

AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands – Addressing a specific need in the sports broadcast market, HARMAN’s Studer is unveiling a prototype unit designed to provide a more rewarding audio experience for television viewers. Known as the Studer Ball Chaser, this unique product allows broadcast engineers to use a joystick to open the shotgun microphone closest to the action on the playing area, while keeping the other microphones closed.

In efforts to bring the game closer to the viewer, sports broadcasters often place 12 or more shotgun microphones around the playing area to pick up as much of the action as possible. However, leaving all 12 microphones fully or partially open for the whole match results in a lack of detail in the audio mix. Manually opening the microphone closest to the action and closing all the rest for the length of a game is virtually impossible, but the Studer Ball Chaser simplifies this complex task.

Ball Chaser connects directly to any Vista console and is a simple joystick mounted on a small, portable box. The operator configures
the unit with a simple web GUI interface, setting the layout of the physical microphones around the pitch (up to 24 microphones may be used) and linking these to the faders on the desk (mono and stereo faders may be controlled). During the game, simply moving the joystick opens and closes the relevant faders with smooth cross fades. The operator can simply watch the pitch events and open the necessary microphone without looking down at the joystick. Desk faders will respond in real time to the joystick movement and open only the microphone fader nearest to where the action is taking place. In fact, the faders do not even have to be on the active layer of the desk, freeing up valuable fader space.

The Ball Chaser link to the desk is a simple Ethernet connection, so the operator can be some distance from the Vista desk, even watching the action from the stand rather than taking space in the OB truck.

A key advantage of this unit is that it allows more gain to be given to the on-field FX microphones, as the unit always has the equivalent of one open microphone to air. This “single” microphone can have higher gain without the crowd pickup swamping the overall mix.

With leading brands including AKG®, Harman Kardon®, Infinity®, JBL®, Lexicon® and Mark Levinson ®, the Company is admired by audiophiles, musicians and the entertainment venues where they perform.

Yamaha Announces I/O Rack For Dante/MADI Conversion

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. will launch the fifth in a series of its Remote I/O (Rio) Racks at this year’s AES Convention. The new RMio64-D provides unprecedented capabilities for Yamaha CL and QL Series Consoles as well as NUAGE DAW systems that use Dante networking. The new product enables audio from a CL or QL live sound system to be converted to MADI and fed to an OB vehicle, for example, or a MADI based console can be easily integrated into a NUAGE system for post production.

Word clock synchronization can be an issue when converting between different audio formats, but now with the RMio64-D MADI inputs and outputs feature built-in, sample rate conversion sources with differing word clocks can be connected without causing noise or dropouts. In addition to redundant Dante network connections, the RMio64-D additionally supports MADI redundancy through simultaneous coaxial and optical connections. With the MADI Split (loopback) capability, a signal received at either the coaxial or optical input can now be retransmitted to the output.

On its own or in close integration with other Yamaha products, RMio64-D adds even greater value. The rack can be mounted via the CL or QL console touch screen displays with convenient remote control of Dante patching and sample rate converter settings (future update). Precision synchronization with the NUAGE system Direct Monitoring and VST System Link functions is also provided, as well as remote control from the NUAGE Workgroup Manager software.

“The RMio64-D allows smooth, simple connection between the MADI format and the Dante digital audio networking protocol that is rapidly gaining acceptance worldwide, states Marc Lopez, Marketing Manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. Built-in sample rate conversion effectively overcomes word clock synchronization issues that would otherwise limit system design freedom, and extensive compatibility with CL, QL and NUAGE systems, significantly enhancing the value of those products for use in a broad spectrum of sound systems. Tight integration is the key to complete systems solutions offered by Yamaha for our customers.”

A late 2014 availability is expected with a target MSRP of $3,800.

For more information on the RMio64-D, visit Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. at AES 2014, Los Angeles Convention Center, booth #1401 or on the web www.yamahaca.com.

Yamaha CL/QL V3.0 Boast New Features for Broadcast, Live Sound

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Announced during IBC in September, Yamaha CL and QL Digital Audio Consoles will release V3.0 updates available in early 2015.
Version 3.0 adds features and functionality that will increase the appeal of all CL and QL Series models for broadcast applications, including 5.1 panning and monitoring for surround broadcasts, and a newly developed buss compressor that is ideal for insertion in the stereo mix buss.

For live sound applications, V3.0 will add the benefit of a new 8-band parametric EQ and real time analyzer. There will not be a QL Series V2.0 so that the CL and QL Series Consoles will be at the same V3.0 level. CL and QL files are interchangeable, making it easy to choose and combine models to best accommodate live sound front of house and monitoring as well as broadcast relay and recording, from the most basic to large scale applications.

Notable new CL/QL V3.0 features for broadcast include 5.1 Surround Panning.
Pan positioning can be set via the touch panel or knobs. Mix to Matrix can be used for international feed production, and Mix to Stereo can be used for stereo mix down. In addition to surround mixing, CL/QL V3.0 adds basic surround monitoring. Monitor alignment capability is also provided, with adjustment of relative speaker levels and delays.

Also for broadcast applications, Dan Dugan Sound Design highly regarded automatic microphone mixers already included in QL Series is now included in CL Series consoles. Gain distribution for up to 16 speech microphone channels is automatically optimized in real time, achieving smooth, natural level control.

Yamaha R&D has created an accurate VCM (Virtual Circuitry Modeling) model of an acclaimed buss compressor that is relied on in broadcast and recording studios around the world. Buss Comp 369 is ideal for inserting on the stereo mix buss for increased loudness, more uniform levels, and warm overall sound. It is an excellent choice for live sound as well as broadcast applications.

Mix minus, considered important for relay broadcast applications, previously available for CL consoles is now available in the QL consoles. The signal from a specified channel can be easily omitted from a specific bus, making it easy to quickly create a mix for the location reporter, for example, that may not include his/her own mic feed. The new Frame Delay capability enables the audio engineer to delay the audio at the console in order to achieve proper synchronization, a necessity in broadcast and in live applications where video is being used. The feature makes it possible to set that delay in frame increments for easy sync with a wide variety of video formats.

Additional live sound features include an 8-band PEQ in the GEQ Rack and Effect Rack making it possible to select 8-band Parametric EQ in the GEQ RACK and EFFECT RACK. With the real time analyzer (RTA) to support room tuning and other operations, the frequency spectrum of cued channels can be shown in the new RTA display as well as in the PEQ or GEQ display to provide visual feedback while adjusting EQ.

Also of note for the live sound market, V3.0 will now provide four banks of enhanced User Defined Keys, not only reducing the possibility of running out of keys, but it also allows keys to be grouped by function for improved efficiency. DCA Assignment Selection for Scene Management has been added to the parameters for Recall Safe, Focus Recall, and Global Paste. Rather than only being selectable with ALL parameters during scene memory management, DCA assignment is now an independent setting. This allows more refined control, such as specifying only Channel Name, Fader, and DCA Assign to be Recall Safe, for example.

We’re very pleased to brings these additional upgrades that have been requested by our users, states Marc Lopez, Marketing Manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. Our loyal sound reinforcement engineers will benefit from several great tools whether they are mixing on CL or the new QL Series as well as a whole new set of amazing features for our broadcast users. In addition to the new features in V3.0, we are currently working on a number of additional refinements that will provide even greater operability and stability and will continue to deliver products and updates that contribute to the most efficient and comfortable working environment for our customers.”

CL/QL V3.0 firmware will be available as a free download from the Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. web site, www.yamahaca.com, in early 2015.
