MassAV Creates ‘Ultimate Production Snake’ by FiberPlex

It’s lights, cameras and a whole lot more action for massAV as a result of a new FiberPlex Technologies optical snake recently added to its linecard.

The live event AV staging and production company in Billerica, Massachusetts, purchased FiberPlex’s WDM optical multiplexer to create what massAV Director of Operations Aaron Raymond calls the ultimate production snake. “We build a lot of very high end video systems, and when you start adding multiple lines of HD video along with audio, data, lighting and control for an event, it really has to be fiber,” he said, adding, “We’d been limited in our use of fiber until now because it meant having to set up an optical transmitter and receiver on every single channel, and that got expensive.”

Now, with FiberPlex’s WDM-8 active wave division multiplexer, massAV can multiplex eight discrete signals at 3 Gb/s each for transporting video, audio, lighting and control feeds onto one fiber pair.

The FiberPlex WDM multiplexer comes in 16-channel and 8-channel models and are on a cost parity with copper and copper’s associated installation and handling expenses. As the cost of copper cabling continues to rise, companies like massAV are going the fiber optic route to transport large volumes of content. Optical fiber has ten times the transference rate of copper at the high end and can transmit data error-free over greater distances by a 400:1 ratio.

“The FiberPlex multiplexer makes it so that we can run eight channels on the same fiber pair as opposed to dealing with the different types and sizes of copper cabling as well as the need to re-clock signals every couple hundred feet for longer runs,” explained Raymond.

As a result, massAV is able to replace 2,000 pounds of copper cabling with a 25-pound spool of fiber optics for large events, a savings that is realized by its corporate and other live event customers in reduced labor, setup time and transportation costs to truck in and set up copper cabling at events.

Multiplexing media and control signals onto one, 1/4-inch optical cable is also ideal for events that require running cables down hallways, across doorways or through public areas where bulky copper cabling is not practical, said Raymond.

massAV recently tried out the new multiplexer for a 1,500-person event with a main stage, two control areas, and 26 video projectors in the air – all tied together via the ultimate production snake consisting of little more than a spool of fiber optic cabling and a pair of WDM multiplexers. The setup involved multiple lines of data, video, audio, lighting control, intercom communications, and serial communications between equipment.

FiberPlex’s eight-channel WDM-8 and sixteen-channel WDM-16 multiplexers use interchangeable SFP/SFP+ modules for interfacing to a variety of gear and environments, including converting between media formats SD-SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, and 6G-SDI and for HDMI/DVI, 10/100/1G Ethernet and MADI, as well as full duplex and BiDi optical. massAV’s new multiplexer provides the flexibility now and into the immediate future as new media requirements change, noted Raymond.

FiberPlex recently took to the road to conduct a 25-city demo tour of its active wave division multiplexers as the ultimate production snake (check with a local FiberPlex representative for details). FiberPlex makes fiber optic products and systems for government agencies as well as for houses of worship, corporate facilities, broadcast applications, and K-12 and higher education.

Litepanels Announces Opening of Expanded Headquarters

New Facility Supports Business Growth for LED Lighting Leader

Chatsworth, Calif. – Litepanels(r), a Vitec Group brand and premier provider of LED lighting for the broadcast and production industries, has opened the doors of its new facility in Chatsworth, Calif. Significantly larger than the company’s previous headquarters, Litepanels made the move to a bigger footprint to support the growing demand for their proprietary LED technology in the production and broadcast communities.

Founded in the heart of the film community in 2001, Litepanels continues to operate their primary business, engineering, and production operations in the Los Angeles area. “When we looked to expand, it was important to us to stay close to the L.A. film community,” commented Litepanels Vice President of Global Marketing Chris Marchitelli. “Litepanels has grown from humble garage beginnings to become one of the leaders in the film and television lighting industry, and we wanted to keep jobs here in the city that helped us to get our start.”

Formerly operating in just over 11,000 square feet, the new Chatsworth facility covers more than 24,000 square feet. “The new facility gives us increased space for equipment, more offices for our growing staff, and a bigger staging area to meet deliveries, but this move was about more than real estate,” continued Marchitelli. “Our new headquarters gives us greater latitude for research and development, so we can continue to foster the culture of innovation that has been key to our success. We are excited to be moving into such a beautiful new facility, and we know it would not have been possible without the support and loyalty of our customers.”

Litepanels has also unveiled a new logo as part of the culmination of a yearlong rebranding effort. “Litepanels is a trailblazer in LED technology. We have evolved our product line beyond panels to include the largest lineup of LED Fresnels in the industry. With that, we knew it was time to update our logo so that it was instantly recognizable and reflective of the innovation of our fixtures,” noted Marchitelli. “We are launching some exciting products this year, and we are proud that they will be branded with the new Litepanels logo.”

Funky Junk helps Ruadhri Cushnan Upgrade His Monitors

Funky Junk, Europe’s leading supplier of new and refurbished professional recording equipment and services, has supplied Award-winning Mix engineer Ruadhri Cushnan with a pair of ATC SM25A studio monitors.

“I knew ATC had a great reputation as a monitor manufacturer and I’d specifically heard a few people talk favourably about the SM25s,” Ruadhri Cushnan says. “When I mentioned to the Funky Junk guys that I needed to improve my monitors they suggested that I try them. I did, and they were amazing, so I decided to buy a pair.”

The monitors have now been installed at Cushnan’s project studio.

“I’ve had my own Mix space since 2007, but recently moved to my current space because it is slightly bigger and gives me more room to accommodate my ever expanding gear racks,”

Cushnan says. “Being near Funky Junk was a happy accident but one that has definitely worked out well. It’s like having a big studio maintenance department right on the doorstep. The guys are very friendly and always happy to help – and they have a good coffee machine.”

Ruadhri Cushnan started his career as an assistant engineer at Metropolis Studios before turning his hand to freelance projects. Having worked as a programmer, writer and re-mixer, Cushnan is now best known as a Mix engineer – an area he has been focusing on since 2007. Recent projects have included album and single mixes for Ed Sheeran, Half Moon Run, The Maccabees, Nina Nesbitt and Foy Vance. He was also responsible for mixing Mumford & Son’s album Babel, for which he received a Grammy in 2013.

Virtually all of Cushnan’s mix projects are carried out at his project studio where he tends to mix ‘in the box’, but with lots of traditional analogue outboard as part of the workflow.

“I occasionally record some vocals and overdubs but 90% of my time is spent mixing,” he explains. “Obviously monitoring is critical and that’s why I needed to upgrade. I’m delighted with the ATC SM25s, which I’ve been using for a little while now. They really do have an incredible amount of detail and are very easy to listen to. I can mix on them at a good level for hours and not get tired out. When I first got them I put on some old favourite vinyls that I thought I knew well and, although it’s a real cliché, it was like hearing them fresh for the first time. They are excellent speakers.”

Cushnan adds that he was very happy with the help and advice Funky Junk’s technical boffins gave him. “They have a great support system and are always very competitive on price,” he says.

The success Ruadhri Cushnan enjoyed in 2012 and 2013 looks set to continue this year as he is already busy working on album projects for Luke Sital Singh (Parlophone) Saint Raymond (Warner/Asylum), King Charles (Universal/Republic), Foy Vance (Glassnote) and Nina Nesbitt.

DPA Microphones Bring Added Clarity To David Gray’s Vocals

Leading singer songwriter David Gray has become the latest in a long line of vocalists to discover the benefits of DPA Microphones’ new d:facto™ Vocal Microphone.

Gray’s well-crafted songs were delivered with pristine clarity during his recent Sounding Out tour of Ireland after FOH engineer Graham Pattison introduced DPA’s d:facto II into the equipment line-up.

“I’ve been a fan of DPA microphones for some time because they deliver such great sound quality,” Pattison says. “However, this was the first time I’d had the opportunity to use the new d:facto II Vocal Microphone and I was really impressed with the results we achieved. Right from the first syllable in rehearsals I knew we were onto a winner, but it wasn’t until the first show in Ireland a few days later that I really heard the vocal clarity and exceptional quality through a large venue sound system. There were no gain or feedback issues, and even when left with a flat EQ it sounded exactly how I’m used to hearing David’s voice. The EQ I did end up using was just to help the vocal sit in well with the instrumentation.”

Pattison adds that Gray didn’t question why his microphone had been changed.

“He trusted my judgment and his own ears,” he explains. “During the two week tour we played 11 shows, and did a live streamed and filmed ‘other voices’ show and a live on air RTE radio show. Everyone was coming back to me with very positive feedback about the sound in general as well as his vocal performance.”

Pattison first began working with David Gray in 2007 and since then he has engineered all his live gigs. In 2011, Gray’s Lost and Found tour gave him the opportunity to experiment with a different technical approach and it was on that occasion that he began using DPA microphones.

“The Lost and Found tour was a more acoustic presentation of David’s songs, so we used different instrumentation,” Pattison explains. “We also added a couple of new musicians who could cover backing vocalist duties, so at times we had a five voice choir to back up David’s main vocal.”

Thanks to the acoustic nature of the show, Pattison decided that DPA microphones would be the perfect way to capture the instruments on stage. After speaking with DP’A UK distributor Sound Network about the tour’s requirements, Pattison settled on using two d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphones for the double bass and cello, two d:dicate™ 4011 Recording Microphones for the acoustic guitar and mandolin, two 4023 microphones for the grand piano and one d:vote 4099 Instrument Microphone for Gray’s trademark handpump harmonium.

“I chose DPA microphones for their sound quality – it really was as simple as that,” Pattison says. “DPA microphones have always been regarded as the best you can buy, so when I had an opportunity to acquire some mics for my studio and for live shows, I knew that DPA was the way I wanted to go. Apart from their exceptional sound quality, I’ve also find them extremely versatile because they can be mounted in so many different ways, including directly onto the instrument.”

Pattison says that DPA microphones are now standard on all the tours he engineers because they are so rugged and reliable.

“I did three tours last year, all with DPA, and I didn’t have any microphone failures,” he says. “Even the miniature cardioid microphone I’ve been using on David’s pump harmonium is still going strong. The build quality, particularly of the d:dicate 4011 Recording Microphones, is fantastic and no matter where in the world I ship them, they always withstand the rigors of freighting and come out of their boxes working perfectly every time.

“With an ever increasing vocal choir, I am now looking forward to getting my hands on some more DPA d:facto Vocal Microphones. With those, and the d:vote 4099 drum microphones, DPA will certainly be getting a good run in.”
