Music Marcom Marks 10th Year

PR & Marketing agency serves over 50 music companies over the past decade, looks to the future

Phoenix, AZ (June 23, 2014) – Music Marcom (www.musicmarcom.com) is celebrating 10 years in business in 2014. During that time, the company has successfully provided marketing communications services to over 50 musical instrument, professional audio, and music technology companies as well as recording facilities and audio industry professionals.

Combining their collective PR and marketing experience from such companies as Guitar Center, Magix Entertainment, SDI Media, Steinberg Media Technologies and Fender Musical Instruments, Brian and Martina McConnon founded Music Marcom in 2004. “We actually met at the NAMM show in Anaheim, California,” points out Brian McConnon. “We have different, but complimentary skills sets that allow us to cover a lot of ground for our clients.”

The vision was to provide small to mid-size companies a menu of expert marketing and communications services as an alternative to an expensive in-house department. By keeping Music Marcom focused and specialized, they are able to provide a tremendous value for their clients. “As we ramped up, we found this formula fit a wide range of situations, from start-ups that need the entire portfolio of marketing services, to mid-size companies that need product launch or tradeshow support, and large corporations that need focused and targeted PR,” says Martina McConnon.

Kim Pfluger, PR and Events Manager for iZotope, Inc. said, “iZotope has had the pleasure of working with Music Marcom since the very beginning. Their focus, attention to detail, and assertiveness continue to build our brand in the Pro Audio, MI, and Post Production industries, as well as new industries and geographic locations. Up for anything, they deliver great results with a positive attitude, fostering close relationships with the media on iZotope’s behalf.”

As the industry has evolved, so too has the way Music Marcom markets their clients’ products and brands. “The shift to digital media has created more opportunities to engage customers, but it has also fragmented the landscape into specific interests and preferences,” adds McConnon. “We help clients plan and implement traditional PR and marketing strategies with modern digital, social, and content marketing strategies for a completely integrated approach.”

“We have been working with Music Marcom for the last five years to help us gain better product recognition of our musician oriented publications in the MI space,” said John Cerullo, Group Publisher, Hal Leonard Performing Arts Publishing Group. “They have done an amazing job augmenting our in-house efforts, which is exactly what we needed when we started this relationship. Brian and Martina have been wonderful to work with and are very engaged with both our publications and authors. This makes all the difference in the end results. We look forward to working with them well into the future.”

The partnership unites two leading technical organizations serving the media and entertainment business. It gives both SMPTE and HPA the opportunity to extend their reach and expand their membership while better serving the whole industry — from the engineering and technical professionals to the creative community.

Screen Innovations Creates New In-wall Screen Category

Austin, TX—June 2014—Screen Innovations (SI), the fastest growing technology-based screen manufacturer in the USA—and the undisputed world leader in ambient-light-rejection screen technology—has developed an exciting new in-wall installation option for its FlexGlass™ rear projection screen material.

FlexGlass™ In-wall is a revolutionary new option that integrates a screen into a wall for a flush fit and finish.

FlexGlass™ is the world’s first rollable glass projection screen with curve and custom capabilities ideal for commercial and retail installations. With FlexGlass™ In-wall, the screen is material inserted into a rigid frame at the job site, then mounted in a pre-cut opening. SI provides integrators with a template and step-by-step instructions to cut a precise opening in the wall.

FlexGlass™ Rear-Pro projection screen material is the most innovative breakthrough in rear projection screens in decades. For the first time, a screen has broken the physical barriers that limit all other rear projection screens. It does so by delivering unmatched edge-blend capability, zero hotspotting, almost infinitely variable viewing angle, and dark contrast because of its ability to reject ambient light.

FlexGlass™ is made from the same material as bulletproof glass, and is available in screens up to 9’ high and 99’ wide, allowing the best in flexibility, strength, and performance. It offers the benefits of the best rigid optical glass and panels, and, because it’s semi-rigid, FlexGlass™ can be used in curved configurations ideal for retail, in-window displays, exhibits, houses of worship, board rooms, corporate lobbies, and more. It can also be rolled in long, seamless sheets on 24” diameter cores, eliminating the logistical problems associated with moving rigid glass or Plexiglas sheets into and through buildings, elevators, and small doorways.

Manufacturers Suggested Retail Pricing: starting at $6,278.00 USD
Availability: June 1, 2014

Screen Innovations makes it easy to choose the right screen for each application, based on lighting, room size, seating distance, and more. Visit www.screeninnovations.com to check out the Screen Calculator, Screen Wizard, and Projector Wizard online tools.

The Music Producers Guild Criticizes YouTube

London, UK: The Music Producers Guild is lending its support to Independent record labels as they battle YouTube for a better deal for continued access to YouTube’s online video platform.

In a statement issued today, the MPG board says:

“With regards to the recent dispute between YouTube and independent labels and the unfavourable terms which YouTube seeks, without negotiation, to impose upon independent record labels, the Music Producers Guild is deeply concerned about Google’s apparent abuse of its monopoly and associated market power and the adverse effect this will have on the wider industry and funds available for innovative and creative content production in the future.

“Independent record producers everywhere, in common with recording artists, rely upon the income from sales and streaming of music files, the production of which they have been responsible, often with little or no credit (itself ironic in this digital age). Attempts by international media conglomerates to throttle negotiation and impose unfavourable and unjust terms upon independent record companies, whom they perceive to be “small fry” and thus “fair game”, should be opposed at every opportunity.”

About Music Producers Guild (UK):

The Music Producers Guild (UK) is an independent and democratic organisation that encourages the highest standards of music production, and actively engages with other music industry organisations to campaign and lobby on matters of important mutual interest.

Viewbits HD Cameras Selected for Web Broadcasts of 2014 U.S. Chess Championships

San Diego, California — June 19, 2014 – Viewbits, the industrial cameras division of Computer Modules, Inc., announced that Spectrum Studios chose Viewbits HD cameras for video coverage of the nation’s most prestigious chess tournaments – the 2014 U.S. Championship and 2014 U.S. Women’s Championship, held May 7 through May 20 in St. Louis, Missouri. Sponsored by the United States Chess Federation (USCF) and hosted by the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis, the championships feature fierce competition and total prize funds of $244,000.

Spectrum Studios utilized eleven miniature GNAT 1080p 60 cameras and two Verio HD Remote-Control PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) cameras for a two week live HD webcast of the tournament — the HD-SDI footage was encoded for the web.

“The GNAT 1080p 60 has a huge number of options for such a small bodied camera – it’s just over 1.64 inches long,” noted Randy Sinquefield, president of Spectrum Studios. “It also has an very easy learning curve — we set up the first one in only 15 to 20 minutes. For overhead shots, we used two Verio HD pan-tilt-zoom cameras with wireless remote control. Everybody on board is thrilled with these cameras. They completely exceeded our expectations.”

“The U.S. Championships are always riveting to many fans who are eager to watch locally and remotely,” stated Joy Bray, General Manager of the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis, which hosted the event. “The small Viewbits HD cameras delivered stunning video without blocking the view of the live audience. Chess fans around the world viewed the live webcast of the tournaments, and the replays can be seen at www.uschesschamps.com.”

The 2.1 megapixel GNAT 1080p 60 features 3 Gbps HD-SDI Out, AGC (Automatic Gain Control), WDR (Wide Dynamic Range), digital zoom, and defog. It also supports brilliant DNR (Digital Noise Reduction) technologies like DNR, 3D-NR and 2D+3D.

The Verio HD pans, tilts, and zooms on command, via a wireless remote control or an optional keyboard-joystick. The output can be HD-SDI at 720p, 1080i, or 1080p, HDMI, YPbPr, or CVBS (composite video). The 8.5 inches wide camera pans and tilts at a speed of half a degree per second to 80 degrees per second, and features a built-in 10x zoom lens.

“We’re proud that our cameras were selected to document the U.S. Chess Championships,” noted Patrick Palensky, Sales Engineer for Viewbits. “The GNAT 1080p 60 is one of our best-selling cameras, and the Verio HD is a long-time customer favorite.”
