NCSSM’s ETC Auditorium, now home to a new KIVA System from L-ACOUSTICS

DURHAM, North Carolina — Offering an intensive two-year study in the fields of math, science and technology, the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics (NCSSM) in Durham is distinguished as the world’s first public residential magnet school catering to high school juniors and seniors demonstrating a strong aptitude and interest in this specialized curriculum.

For more than ten years, NCSSM’s John Freidrick Educational Technology Complex (ETC) Auditorium has served as the school’s primary host venue for guest lecturers, theatrical productions and musical artists visiting the campus. When the ETC Auditorium’s original sound system was finally deemed to be inadequate for the 650-seat, single-balcony theater, the school called upon local integrator John Koelle of North State Sound to design and install a new system. more

Their XL2 mid-range HD truck is one of a fleet of 22 OB’s, which have been amalgamated under the EMF umbrella since the merger of subsidiaries EMT, SFP and VCF at the beginning of this year, and one of six HD-equipped vehicles. The 13.6-metre truck supports up to 24 cameras and incorporates a VTR area, monitor stack, production area—and now a top specification audio mixing front end.

Studer Vista 5 Console Provides Surround Sound For Fela! At the National

When the Broadway blockbuster Fela! transferred to London’s National Theatre on the South Bank this month, Tony Award-winning sound designer Robert Kaplowitz took advantage of the auditorium’s vastly different form to rework his original soundscape, with a Studer Vista 5 digital console at the control centre.

Portraying the life of Nigerian political activist and musician Fela Kuti had required the audience to be immersed in a soundfield as part of the adventurous production–but at the National he decided to go a step further.

The opportunity came when the National’s Sound Operations Manager, Borneo Brown, and assistants, Matt Berry and Ed Ferguson, requisitioned a 42-fader, custom-configured Studer Vista 5 digital console for the production.

“I had hoped to have used this desk for the Broadway production–but for various reasons it didn’t happen,? said Kaplowitz. Of the advanced feature set offered by the Vista 5, the highlight–as far as more
