Titan Mobile Knocks It Out Of The Park For MLB

Avolites’ compact console slugs a grand slam controlling lights at SE Systems-manned Major League Baseball stadium concert series

GREENSBORO, NC — As Major League Baseball pennant races hit a feverish pitch during these dogs days of summer, many teams are adding value to ticket prices with post-game stadium concerts by an eclectic group of all-star talent ranging from country’s Martina McBride to rap’s 50 Cent.

Much like a manager draws up a powerful yet balanced lineup full of professionals, turnkey production house SE Systems of Greensboro, NC was summoned earlier this summer by Select Artists Associates of Scottsdale, AZ to handle the pro audio/lighting needs for many of these entertaining shows hosted by the Washington Nationals and New York Mets, among others scheduled through the end of September.

Demanding a seamless, quick switchover as soon as the last pitch is thrown, SE Systems is tapping Avolites’ Titan Mobile lighting console for its small footprint (19″ x 14″), perfect for the field-friendly, time-sensitive roll-on for such a post-game assignment, explains SE lighting designer Nehemiah (aka “Captain Nemo”) Grubbs. more

Sliq Media Technologies Wins Caribbean Legislature Contract

Automated recording and transcription workflows, cross-platform streaming help Parliament of Trinidad and Tobago accelerate public record creations, expand audience reach

MONTREAL, August 19, 2014Sliq Media Technologies announces that the Parliament of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago has selected its Harmony Suite to automatically record, transcribe and stream parliamentary proceedings, minimizing labor costs and workflow errors associated with legacy transcription processes.

The Sliq solution transitions the Parliament to an automated workflow that reduces the time required to create official public records. The automated workflow will streamline their existing process, reducing the Legislature’s reliance on traditional stenography for transcriptions. The upgrade will also add cross-platform streaming capabilities for the first time, broadening the delivery of legislative content across multiple consumer devices, including web and mobile targets. Collectively, the marriage of Hansard workflow and cross-platform webcasting delivers a unified service to the public that to date has not existed for the Parliament of Trinidad and Tobago.

“The use of stenography technology in government meetings continues to diminish as more efficient tools become available to create public records,” said Sanjiv Menezes, president, Sliq Media Technologies. “Sliq provides an all-in-one, easy-to-use solution that combines transcription tools and cross-platform streaming to establish a far more efficient workflow with reliable results.”

The Sliq Harmony Suite enhances the user experience with cross-workflow indexing tools that deliver all relevant information from parliamentary proceedings alongside video and audio streams. While Sliq’s Razorback multi-channel encoders capture HD-quality (H.264) video and pristine audio streams, Harmony’s time stamped indexing tools ensure that content associated with parliamentary proceedings is uniformly presented alongside webcasts. This guarantees that all relevant legislative content, including speakers and orders of the day, is made available to constituents in one place, with simple access to specific points of interest.

The agreement includes video support at two venues and single-track audio support at three venues. Sliq Hawkeye tools will provide monitoring of all video and audio levels across the workflow, helping staff centrally monitor performance parameters for quality assurance—and quickly react to rare troubleshooting issues via diagnostics and alerting tools.

“This project advances our Caribbean presence to three countries, and we are in active discussions with several nearby countries that have recognized the efficiency and quality gains of neighboring nations that have transitioned to the Sliq platform,” said Nic Côté, VP, Business Development for Sliq. “The launch of the Harmony Suite for the Parliament of Trinidad and Tobago also gives us an opportunity to go back this winter and enjoy a warm meal with our customers at Husseins Restaurant!”

ABOUT Sliq Media Technologies

Sliq Media Technologies sells a simple yet scalable solution for high-quality media recording, streaming, annotation, indexing, transcription and closed-captioning, tailored to legislative environments. Its turnkey webcasting solution for government agencies is available in cloud-based, hybrid and self-hosting solutions and is easily accessible by a vast variety of mobile, desktop and consumer devices.

K2 Becomes NYC’s Newest Flying Superhero

See Factor deploys brand new L-ACOUSTICS system at acoustically challenging Javits Center for worldwide premiere of X-Men: Days of Future Past

NEW YORK CITY — For the launch of the summer blockbuster film X-Men: Days of Future Past, 20th Century Fox staged its worldwide premiere at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center on midtown Manhattan’s west side.

The debut of the $200-million-plus film, attended by Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Patrick Stewart, Halle Berry and other stars, was a huge event filling a hall inside the cavernous Javits Center and illuminating a 75-foot-wide screen hung on the hall’s north wall. The showing also had to be able to reproduce the film’s bombastic 5.1 surround soundtrack, but the Javits is no cinema; the same huge floor-to-ceiling glass wall that offers spectacular views of the Hudson River and New Jersey can also create uncontrollable aural reflections that would turn the hall into an acoustical nightmare.

Event producer Samantha Sackler Productions tapped NYC-based See Factor Industry, its longtime collaborator on east coast events and movie premieres, who called upon the sonic equivalent of a superhero: L-ACOUSTICS’ K2, a lightweight, high-powered, full-range line source array system that made its official debut earlier this year. For the X-Men premiere, the AV specialist deployed 24 K2, 12 SB28 subs and 16 coaxial 115XT HiQ wedges, all powered and processed by L-ACOUSTICS’ LA8 amplified controllers. See Factor also provided all lighting, rigging and management services for the event. more

CASIO’S LAMPFREE® PROJECTORS ILLUMINATE “G” BY GUESS STORES NATIONWIDE

 CASIO’S LAMPFREE® PROJECTORS ILLUMINATE “G” BY GUESS STORES NATIONWIDE

“G” By Guess, a retail store founded in 2007 by the Marciano brothers, wanted to upgrade and showcase its existing visual technology to further enhance the store’s overall design. To do so, “G” By Guess partnered with Pro-Motion Technology Group, the leading single-source provider of integrated technology specializing in commercial digital solutions, to transform its stores’ atmosphere. To date, “G” By Guess has installed more than 100 projectors in various store locations, including Casio’s Pro XJ-H1700, and plans to purchase additional projectors for additional locations across the United States throughout the year.

“Our company spent a lot of time researching the best projection technology for “G” By Guess and found that Casio’s projectors are unmatched in terms of their long lifespan, lightweight design and overall total cost of ownership,” said Chris Thomas, project manager at Pro-Motion Technology Group. “We recommended Casio’s Pro projectors for “G” By Guess and they have been well worth the investment.”

“G” By Guess chose Casio’s projectors specifically because of the LampFree® technology and state-of-the-art LASER & LED Hybrid Light Source. Casio projectors provide users with a 20,000 hour estimated lifespan, eliminating the need for expensive projection lamps that often need replacement and can cost almost as much as the original projector unit over one year. These units are also mercury-free, eliminating concerns for the proper disposal of used lamps and mercury pollution.

“The Casio projectors we installed have met needs beyond our expectations. Originally, “G” By Guess was looking for something to complement its store design and overall, existing visual experience and thought a projector would be a great fit,” said Thomas. “I’ve heard nothing but positive feedback from “G” By Guess’ in-store employees since we began installing the Casio projectors. We can see the difference in terms of brightness and clarity.”

Throughout many “G” By Guess locations, Casio projectors are mounted on the ceilings, and project images and music videos on the wall behind the cash registers. Each store location can run video feed up to 12-14 hours per day and can shut the units down easily without worrying about additional setup time. The next day when the power is turned back on, the projectors retain memory of the predetermined settings and cut down on calibration time. Also, since the projectors use Laser & LEDs it only takes eight seconds from power on to reach full brightness.

“Casio is proud to provide its state-of-the-art projectors to “G” By Guess store locations,” said Matt Mustachio, general manager of Casio’s Business Projector Division. “We know our units will reduce operating costs for the stores and create an inviting digital atmosphere for customers.  We look forward to building upon our relationship with “G” By Guess as they continue to upgrade locations nationwide.”
