Ravi ‘Drums’ Jakhotia Backs Indian Premier League’s 2012 Twenty20 Cricket Tournament Opening Ceremonies, Monitors Performances With HARMAN’s AKG IVM4500 In-Ear Monitors

VIENNA, Austria – Broadcast to more than 500 million viewers in 66 countries, The Indian Premier League launched its 2012 Twenty20 cricket tournament with an opening ceremony full of international acts at the YMCA College of Physical Education Grounds in Nandanam, Chenni, India. Backing two of the multiple groups performing at the event, which was headlined by Katy Perry, Ravi ‘Drums’ Jakhotia played with First Project and Colonial Cousins, from Africa and India respectively, relying on the HARMAN AKG IVM4500 In Ear Monitoring system to ensure his high-quality sound.

Hired by Wizcraft International Entertainment after successful Indian-based gigs in the past, Jakhotia was eager to return to the country for such a large and important event in the sporting world. During his first performance, Jakhotia accompanied the famed drum band First Project, the opening act for the ceremonies. Later on that night, Ravi Drums played with MTV and Billboard-Award-winning Colonial Cousins from India. During this performance, Jakhotia was given a 3-minute drum solo.

“The IVM4500 worked out very well during my performances, especially at such a large and loud ceremony. Its distance was perfect and sounded amazing during the show,” Jakhotia stated. “The lows were great, the mids were clear and the highs didn’t blast out my ears. AKG’s IVM4500′s are the luxury cars for monitors, with their great balance, EQ and effects all built in.”

Ravi Drums admits to having been a little overwhelmed by the IVM4500′s at first, with their intricate settings and improved features. “Usually in-ears are just plug, play and go, but for AKG’s quality to truly shine, I had to make the proper adjustments. After a few minutes with setup, the 4500′s sound was flawless and the reliability shined through.”

Firehouse Productions Uses HARMAN’s JBL CBT Series Loudspeakers For High-Quality, Visually Discreet Monitor Use on Survivor and Celebrity Apprentice

NORTHRIDGE, California – Looking to provide contestants with professional-quality monitor coverage while maintaining a low visual profile on the sets of CBS’ Survivor and NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice reality television programs, Red Hook, New York-based Firehouse Productions relies on HARMAN’s JBL CBT Series column speakers.

Both television programs needed a loudspeaker option that could provide tight vertical coverage patterns while being easily hidden amongst the design of their sets. To do so, Firehouse Productions provided JBL’s CBT 50LA-a compact, 50-centimeter-high column that utilizes a straight line of eight 2-inch drivers.

Dan Gerhard, mixer for both shows, stated, “The CBT 50LA is perfect for a set where unobtrusive monitoring of dialogue is required.” Gerhard was able to keep the speakers visually unobtrusive on both sets by attaching them to the palm trees on the set of Survivor, and attaching them to a vertical window frame on Celebrity Apprentice. At just three inches wide by 21 inches high, they provided the perfect low-profile solution with plenty of power.

“The tightly controlled pattern is ideal in reducing unwanted reflections from nearby scenery, but also throws intelligibility for some distance,” Gerhard added. “By placing the columns at head level, the speakers project the high-quality sound that we were looking for.”

“Other solutions do not have the pattern control that the CBT’s do,” said Mark Dittmar, Lead Design and Integration Engineer at Firehouse Productions. “They also help with feedback and eliminate any problems we’ve had in the past. It really is a spectacular solution and a unique way to use the CBT’s.”

Being used even with a lapel microphone, “there is concise phase coherence at low levels, making them perfect for television studio purposes,” Gerhard added.

“It’s great that the CBT’s can be used for this application and really shows their versatility and ability to provide direct, accurate and high-quality sound,” Dittmar added.

Stampede Helps Lumina Motion Create One-Of-A-Kind 3D Mapping Events For Two Audi Car Launches

Proving that it continues to meet the increasingly diverse and precise needs of the of the ProAV market, Stampede Presentation Products, Inc. recently helped Lumina Motion create two spectacular 3D mapping events for the official launches of the Audi A6 and Audi Zentrum in Santiago, Chile. According to Lumina Motion President Gonzalo de la Barra, Stampede is an indispensible partner that has allowed the company to keep up with growing demand for complex 3D mapping events.

“Our development and design teams are the best at what they do, so we expect our business partners to live up to that standard,” de la Barra said today. “As a provider of virtually every ProAV product imaginable, Stampede consistently exceeds our expectations in terms of product selection, advice, shipping speed, reliability and support. Our business is growing, and Stampede has helped us maintain our stellar record of delivering exactly what each client requests, every time.”

The audiovisual team at Lumina Motion was hired by Audi to create show-stopping 3D mapping events for the two separate launches of the new A6 and Zentrum models. Both events required more than three weeks of development and design to create both the physical display surfaces and promotional videos to maximize the visual impact of the 3D mapping technology.

The A6 launch featured a real, full-sized Audi A6 car on a custom built ramp and backdrop, with the car completely enveloped in a flexible projection material. The entire set up was compact enough to travel to four different launch locations including shopping malls and restaurants. Lumina Motion utilized two Christie DHD800 projectors to display a dazzling video that covered every visible inch of the car and stage.

For the Zentrum launch, the company used an adhesive to apply a white vinyl material to cover the side of a building (54m wide by 9m tall). For this one-time presentation they deployed eight Christie DHD800 projectors, in stacks of two, to cover the entire building façade in striking high-definition video. The entire setup process, including detailed calibration and exact positioning of the projectors, required four nights of testing and resulted in a picture perfect execution.

According to de la Barra, “3D mapping is becoming a popular way for brands to create jaw-dropping product launches that can be attended by thousands of people and attract a lot of media attention. In situations like this, every detail must be perfect, which is why selecting the right equipment is as important as having our trained professionals perform the calibration and equipment placement on site. Stampede always gives us good advice on the best equipment to use for each audiovisual presentation we do, and we look forward to a long and profitable relationship with them.”

Stampede continues to grow its industry-leading product catalog, which now includes nearly 1,000 pages of ProAV solutions to satisfy every need.

“Stampede has always, and will always, provide the latest products to both large and small ProAV companies on schedule and wherever required,” said Stampede CEO Mark Wilkins. “Innovative content creators and production companies require a vast assortment of products, and we are proud to have more products in our 2012 Big Book of AV than ever before. Lumina Motion is a leading-edge live-video event producer, and it is exciting to play such a vital role in their unique and consistently phenomenal presentations.”

Lumina Motion is a development-oriented team that specializes in next generation audiovisuals and experiential marketing solutions, including Interactive, 3D Mapping, Beamvertising, 360° Indoor Projection and Monumental Projection solutions. They develop custom products for advertising, events and communication in general. They handle their own techniques that make it possible to give life to buildings and elements, producing a unique experience for viewers. As of June 2012 Lumina Motion will start operations in California to serve the U.S. market. For more info visit www.luminamotion.com.

Tri-C Metro Auditorium Jazzed With L-ACOUSTICS

The Jack DeJohnette Group soundchecks during the recent Tri-C JazzFest 2012 at Cuyahoga Community College's Tri-C Metro Auditorium

Cleveland’s popular JazzFest venue installs KARA, ARCS II and SB18 rig

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Known to Cleveland locals simply as “Tri-C”, Cuyahoga Community College is the oldest and largest community college in Ohio. But to jazz aficionados, the school is more than simply an institution dedicated to higher learning — it’s the host site of the renowned Tri-C JazzFest, which recently celebrated its 33rd anniversary.

One of Tri-C's new SB18/KARA arrays

One of the primary venues for the 10-day annual event is the 800-seat Tri-C Metro Auditorium, an intimate hall originally designed and built in 1971 for the Cleveland Philharmonic Orchestra. With minimal fixed PA in the room, the school would typically rent a sound reinforcement system for JazzFest each year — usually an L-ACOUSTICS dV-DOSC/ARCS package from Woodsy’s Music in Kent. But this year the college finally realized its goal of installing an L-ACOUSTICS system of its own. more

HARMAN’s Studer Consoles Specified for Olympics Transmission

Gary Clarke (left) and Pete Bridges, BBC sound supervisors, configuring the Studer consoles in Potters Bar, UK.

LONDON, United Kingdom – The BBC will broadcast the London 2012 Olympic Games from the specially built International Broadcast Centre (IBC) in the Olympic Park, using no fewer than seven HARMAN Studer Vista and OnAir consoles, along with a Route 6000 network core.

This will enable the BBC to take feeds from 34 participating Olympic Games venues for domestic transmission through its network. Following a promise to broadcast “every session of every sport every day,” this will amount to some 2,500 hours of TV sports coverage.

Andrew Hills, Director Product Strategy, Studer, confirmed that the integration of the desks would be carried out by Dega Broadcast Systems, at the same time extending Studer’s relationship with the UK’s state broadcaster that dates back more than a decade.

Whilst Olympic Broadcasting Services (OBS) will provide host facilities within the IBC’s 42,000-square-metre net space, the design of the BBC space has been a collaborative effort between the broadcaster and Dega, led by project coordinator John Cleaver.

The installation will see the deployment of three 62-fader Vista 9 consoles and a Vista 5 along with three OnAir desks (two OnAir 3000 and an OnAir 1500). Incoming feeds from the host broadcaster and the BBC’s own studios will be fed to the desks, with the Route 6000 linking all the consoles at the core.

According to Pete Bridges, who as Lead Sound Supervisor for the operation will oversee all sound and communications, a Vista 9 will form the hub of each of the broadcaster’s three HD and 5.1 production galleries. In addition, an interactive gallery (IPCR) will manage and route 24 separate streams whose destination will be the Internet, Red Button, and other platforms including Freesat, Sky and Virgin Media; these will be running in stereo using two OnAir 3000s.

Faced with taking the bundle of host broadcaster’s feeds and folding that into its own programming will involve combining the broadcaster’s own presenters with VT, and incoming HD-SDI video feeds and Outside Source (OS) lines. The OnAir 1500 will provide a microphone submix from the athletics stadium presentation.

As for the Vista desks, using the Vista 9 for the first time, Bridges notes that the metering will allow fast reconfiguration when dealing with a wide variety of incoming 5.1 OS lines along with commentary and 24 microphone circuits from the studio via Studer’s D21m stage boxes. Other sources to the Vista 9 will include VT and grams.

To give an idea of scale, the Vista 9 in the main gallery will provide 16 line inputs, 72 line outputs, 52 mic inputs (via RELINK sharing) with 112 AES inputs and outputs (the large number of ports being the result of having so many incoming 5.1 sources).

Situated in its own room, the Vista 5 will be used as a backup gallery to the main sound control rooms (SCRs), and will serve as a bypass source (should the main studio suddenly need to be put into bypass to allow a pre-record to take place). “We will use the Vista 5 to pick up the mix, freeing up the Vista 9s to mix the pre-record,” noted Bridges.

A further useful feature of the Vista 9, he said, will be the ability to upmix stereo sources to 5.1 and downmix 5.1 to stereo outputs.

The Route 6000 itself (which can accommodate up to 1728 x 1728 inputs and outputs) will provide 40 line inputs; 40 line outputs; four microphone inputs and two HD-SDI de-embedder/embedder cards.

Finally, use of the Studer RELINK I/O sharing resource will enable the technicians to share mic circuits between all the control desks. “This is a key benefit,” Bridges said. “We can have HD tie lines between the cores of each desk on CAT5, using Studer’s High Density data stream…with 96 bi-directional tie lines to each of the four Vista consoles, sharing the desks’ sources and outputs.”

The integration of these components has been a triumph for Dega. Stated Cleaver, “One of the realities of an event of this scale is that you are looking at building an entire broadcast centre, not just an OB. Our area of expertise is permanent installs and this is as big an installation as we would undertake anywhere. To do so in a temporary building, for use over a 3-week period, and make it work for the number of people who are going to be using it, was certainly challenging.”

He added, “Since this is our domestic Games it needs to be covered more comprehensively; the fact that we have built three full galleries, and provided interaction between them so that the three Vista 9 consoles link and route to each other to allow them to control any of the galleries, is a huge plus for what these mixers do. Without a doubt, this ability at the front end is something the broadcaster had wanted.”

BBC Sport will field 20 IBC sound technicians, managed by Jon Sweeney, Technical Operations Manager and Richard Morgan, Chief Engineer. With the aid of the Studer platforms, this will ensure that the 26 participating sports are well represented and that the broadcaster’s aim of “every session of every sport every day” is maintained.

Iconyx Gives Initiatives of Change a Clear Hearing

Caux, Switzerland – June 2012… Above the clear waters of Lake Geneva, in the small village resort of Caux overlooking Montreux, the locally-nicknamed ‘Cinderella’s Castle’ hosts an annual series of conferences hosted by CAUX-Initiatives of Change.

An independent officially recognized Swiss foundation, the body works to promote peace, prevent conflicts, build trust and encourage intercultural dialogue and ethical conduct in business. CAUX-Initiatives of Change is a member of Initiatives of Change International, an NGO in special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations and participatory status at the Council of Europe.

Their summer seminars in Caux draw people from all over the world, in what was until 1946 the grand Caux-Palace Hotel. A magnificent and peaceful setting, but one whose acoustic legacy has proved a major downside for its current use.

British sound designer Terry Nelson, whose Switzerland-based company Studio Equipment was hired to improve speech intelligibility in the main conference area, explains: “The main salon of the hotel, where the conferences are held, has high ceilings and a wonderful cupola in the centre, with pseudo-art deco plasterwork. The effect of all this is almost infinite flutter echoes, and the area under the cupola works like a whispering gallery. It’s basically a very difficult environment to deliver clear speech to up to 450 people.”

To make the acoustics more complex still, the central area and stage are flanked by a glass conservatory-style wing overlooking the gardens to stage right, and a corridor to stage left.

In a classic scenario, he says, “They’d had a PA installed, with perfectly good quality loudspeakers that were unfortunately totally the wrong choice for the highly reflective environment. People despaired about understanding conversations and presentations. They’d also installed an 8-channel multiple translation system, and many people turned to using that system’s headphones in an effort to understand what was being said.”

The conference’s British technical director Brian Thirlaway initially contacted an audio company in Zurich, which in turn recommended Studio Equipment. Says Nelson: “We did a site visit and from the outset it was obvious that we needed a highly directional system to tame the multiple reflections.” Further discussions revealed that while speech would be the primary use, subtle sound reinforcement for small groups or solo instruments was also required.

Nelson recommended Renkus-Heinz Iconyx’s digital beam steering capabilities to direct sound away from the walls and cupola. The main system consists of two IC16-R arrays, controlled by RHAON software over CobraNet via a remote Ethernet port, along with two CF Series subwoofers.

The slim arrays fit perfectly either side of a mock proscenium arch and are run via analogue audio lines from an existing DDA Q Series console, with control via Ethernet from a Renkus-Heinz IC-RC1 RHAON remote preset control that allows simple user switching between preset modes. The console also feeds two Iconyx IC7 arrays (via groups), which cover the conservatory and corridor areas.

Says Nelson: “Having looked at the room, I did an initial set-up with Renkus-Heinz’s BeamWare II beam alignment software. With the rear wall around 30 metres from the stage, I set up the IC16s so that five separate horizontal beams covered the audience area evenly from front to back.”

“One of the best comments we had,” says Nelson, “was that the general secretary of the organisation was very pleased, saying that for the first time you could understand every word without using the interpreter system headphones, even right at the back or under the cupola.

“From our point of view, when we were doing the first commissioning, one of my colleagues stood right under the cupola, where the sound comes at you from all directions.

“It takes a lot to impress him and he said he couldn’t hear a single echo, just some natural room reverb.

“The whole team was there at the time and it was a case of ‘problem solved’. As a final touch, Renkus-Heinz delivered the Iconyx arrays in a finish that precisely matches the white decor.”

Ministry of Sound Teams With Martin Audio For Innovative Nissan Juke Box

Nissan and Ministry of Sound recently introduced the Juke Box, a breakthrough automotive design with one of the best nightclub sound systems in the world, capable of producing up to 150dB.

The Juke Box sound system was engineered by Martin Audio, also responsible for creating the current iteration of the world-renowned Box Room at Ministry of Sound in London. The Box is a five-sided room within a room completely insulated and suspended from the outside wall that is considered to be acoustically perfect and one of the best sound systems in the world.

Nissan and Ministry of Sound turned to Martin Audio to create a totally self-sufficient 18,900W sound system for the Juke Box. A set of custom made cabinets and enclosures housing two 18” powered subs and the same Mid Hi enclosures used at MoS enable an exceptionally high output with no compromise in sound quality. All of the custom speaker housings were designed to fit into the back of the Juke around the chassis and framework of the innovative crossover model.

Discussing the Juke Box project, Martin Audio Research & Development Director Jason Baird said, “When we got the phone call from Ministry of Sound asking us if we wanted to be involved in this project, we knew it was going to be very exciting. The more I heard about the project, the more I realized it was something we had to make the time for because it was so unique.

“The trick with getting as much of the experience from the Box into the back of the car is to retain the ability to reproduce loud sound pressure levels along with the clarity, definition and abundant low end you can get in the Box. This is something we’ve managed to achieve in a surprisingly compact system.”

The Juke Box also features an integrated radio studio, allowing anything played on the system to be captured for broadcast via Ministry of Sound’s digital radio app. After its debut at the world famous Le Mans 24-hour endurance race, the Juke Box will tour Europe highlighted by the “Nissan Juke Box Sessions,” a six-month radio partnership broadcast on the Ministry of Sound’s Digital Radio channel. The show will be built around a series of exclusive DJ sets recorded at Juke Box events across Europe throughout the summer.

Firehouse Productions Provides HARMAN’s JBL VERTEC(r) Line Arrays To Celebrate Another Spectacular Night For Broadway At The 66th Annual Tony Awards

NEW YORK, New York – “If only real life could be more like theater,” joked host Neil Patrick Harris as he opened the 66th annual Tony Awards at New York City’s historic Beacon Theater. In order to bring Broadway’s memories over the past year to life, Red Hook, New York-based Firehouse Productions relied on HARMAN’s JBL VERTEC(r) line arrays and Crown amplifiers for the live sound reinforcement system.

This years’ awards show featured performances from some of the top theatrical productions of the year, including The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess, Jesus Christ Superstar, Follies, Once and more.

The house system at the Beacon Theater includes a center cluster of four JBL VERTEC VT4887 compact line array loudspeakers and a balcony hang of six VT4888 midsize line array elements per side, with an additional two per side of VT4881 compact arrayable subwoofers.

To accompany the house system, Firehouse provided two hangs of 14 VT4886 subcompact line array loudspeakers for the main PA, four hangs of two VRX932LA-1 Constant Curvature loudspeakers used for side fill, and six VT4886 subcompact loudspeakers were used for front fills. In addition, four VT4880 fullsize arrayable subwoofers were tucked under the stage.

“The hardest part of the project was finding a placement for the PA to hang that fit in with the rest of the set and lighting fixtures and wasn’t visible from a TV and audience perspective,” said Mark Dittmar, lead design and integration engineer at Firehouse Productions. “The VT4886′s were the only solution and the best in my opinion. With a 500-pound hang limit, they give us the power and coverage we need without a sacrifice. The VRX’s are great for tight pattern control for side fills as they are light and can be flown at the bottom of set features.”

The challenge of any awards show is dealing with the many microphones on stage and ensuring there is no feedback stemming from the house PA system, Dittmar noted. “The VT4886′s help to solve this problem,” he added. “In the past we’ve used a variety of small boxes, but this is a much more cohesive design and we’re thrilled that it worked out so well.”

To supplement the JBL loudspeakers, Firehouse utilized 24 Crown I-Tech IT 12000HD amplifiers, providing consistent power and sound quality. “We’ve been using Crown since the beginning,” said Dittmar. “They give us so much power in such a small package and communicate wonderfully with the JBL speakers.”

Dittmar explained that by setting the amps at 208 volts it gives them balanced power and produces less noise as well. “One of our favorite aspects about Crown is the ability to build a custom library of presets so we can control any speaker in our inventory with the proper power, our favorite being the VT4886′s.”

“It’s an honor to be a part of such a significant night and we are extremely pleased with the results from both JBL and Crown. Their excellence and support continues to give us the confidence we need to do our job to the best ability,” Dittmar summed up.
