EVEN IN GUAM ANTON/BAUER DELIVERS STELLAR PERFORMANCE AND SUPPORT FOR PRODUCER AND AUDIO PRO HILARY STEWART

LOS ANGELES, CA. — While on location in Guam, shooting the historical documentary, Back To The Battlefields, which tells the story of Navajo Code Talkers who served in Guam, Okinawa, Tarawa, Iwo Jima, Saipan, Tinian, and Palau before, during, and after World War II, HD production coordinator and audio specialist Hilary Stewart found herself in a precarious position, thanks to lost luggage – without an adequate power source. As a longtime user of Anton/Bauer, a brand of The Vitec Group, and the world’s premier provider of batteries, chargers, lighting and other mobile power systems for the professional broadcast, video and film industries, Stewart knew if anyone could help her it was Anton/Bauer.

‘TIS, At 63: An Indomitable Club In Tune With Changing Tastes

WSDG-E Keeps Atlantis Basel Relevant, Fun and ‘Neighborly’ With Innovative Martin Audio – Residual Hearing System

BASEL, SWITZERLAND: Commonly known as ’tis to six generations of fans, the Atlantis Basel’s ‘live long and prosper’ policy has kept it one of Switzerland’s largest and most popular music halls for 63 years. The recipe for this longevity: keep pace with changing times and tastes via equal measures of culinary and entertainment treats. Founded as a café in 1947, ‘tis became a unique jazz restaurant in 1957. In 1975 it morphed into a rock club featuring concerts by Black Sabbath and other mega stars. In the late ‘90’s‘tis revitalized for the DJ generation. Today, the Atlantis continues to cook as a club, lounge and restaurant.

Studer Vista 5 Digital Console Brings State-of-the-Art Sound To Famed Great Festival Hall in Austria

The Grosses Festspielhaus (Great Festival Hall), home to the famed Salzburg Festival–one of the most famous performance spectaculars in the world–has revamped its main audio system for the first time in two decades. The upgraded system includes a completely redesigned control room, featuring a Studer Vista 5 digital console. Celebrating the hall’s 50th and the festival’s 90th anniversaries, the Vista 5 was chosen for its optimum recording capabilities, with performance recordings in demand throughout the year.

Working to achieve 5.1-quality sound in the control room, which is fairly small and oddly shaped due to the architectural aspects of the nearly century-old venue, the Vista 5 features a lightweight, high-performance compact operating surface, ideal for the small space. The console is rigged to be mobile and can be easily disconnected and reconnected and transported to areas beyond the hall for performances outside of the festival season.

The console is more

An Easy Upgrade Path Makes DK-Technologies PT0710M Waveform Monitor The Ideal Choice For PERFORM

A chance encounter at last year’s IBC exhibition has resulted in Danish metering manufacturer DK-Technologies supplying two PT0710M audio and video waveform monitors to PERFORM, a world leader at broadcasting and commercialising sport in digital media.

PERFORM’s Engineering Project Manager Mike Edwards was at the show investigating equipment for two new Avid edit suites the company was building for its OMNISPORT news service. At the entrance of Hall 8 he came across the DK-Technologies stand and stopped to demo the company’s products.

“It really is worth going to IBC,? he says. “Had it not be been for the position of the DK stand, and the excellent demo we received from Andy Page, we would not have known anything about the company’s waveform monitor products and would have only looked at Tektronix and Hamlet.?

Established in 2007, PERFOM has its headquarters in the UK and employs over 470 more

Spokane, WA – Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena has added dual Digigram ES8mic analog-to-EtherSound input modules and Digigram ES8out EtherSound-to-analog audio bridges to its video and broadcast suite.

The Robsham Theater Arts Center (RTAC) is a focal point of Boston College in Massachusetts, USA.
