America’s Only Television Manufacturer, SunBriteTV, Names Top Tier Independent Representative Firms in Key Regions

MOORPARK, California, February 21, 2012 — At a time when the biggest brands in the consumer electronics marketplace are scaling back new product development and holding dealers to maintain sales performance in a commoditized and competitive economy, one American company is making dealer support central to its growth strategy in outdoor TV technology. SunBriteTV today announced that it has signed deals with 10 independent firms to represent its products in key regions such as New England, metro-New York, Southern California and Florida. While the company continues to carve out a winning niche as the world’s premier maker of true outdoor televisions, SunBriteTV will provide its dealers with the most sophisticated and reliable products on the market as it prepares to introduce new products to its Signature and Professional lines this Spring.

“The SunBriteTV sales and distribution strategy is focused on supporting custom installation and AV specialty retail/custom channels,” said Tom Dixon, vice president of marketing, SunBriteTV. “We feel that these are the top-tier rep firms in the AV space and view our partnerships as an opportunity for both sides to grow our market share and bring innovative new products to the outdoor TV technology market.”

The following firms signed to represent SunBriteTV are: The Jarmac Group Inc., JBA Sales, Balaton Marketing, High-Tech Marketing, WSR Sales, Orion Advanced Marketing, New Age Marketing, Sound-Tech Marketing Inc., JBA MARKETING INC. and Rich Jackson.

Along with the new products, SunBriteTV will support dealers with an aggressive marketing campaign that includes advertising in a wide variety of trade and luxury publications. Advertisements in trade publications are designed to educate dealers about SunBriteTV products and how they can be easily integrated into systems, while advertisements in luxury publications show the benefits and superior performance of SunBriteTVs to end users.

“We want to be the best partner for our dealers, and we’re finding new ways of enhancing the awareness of our brand,” said Dixon. “SunBriteTV is committed to manufacturing products that offer total quality, reliability and pride of ownership and our dealers will play a pivotal role in our plan of expanding entertainment to the outdoor space.”

Auralex Helps Increase Speech Intelligibility at New Life Community Church

OXNARD, CA, FEBRUARY 8, 2012 – Auralex Acoustics, Inc., the industry leader in innovative sound control solutions, is a critical element in the overall sound design at New Life Community Church in Oxnard, California. The church features custom Auralex ELiTE ProPanels and ProBaffles to help absorb additional sound energy and add aesthetic visual appeal throughout its cavernous interior, with the main goal of making speech intelligibility clearer and only slightly secondary goal of better music clarity

Richard Rutherford of Rutherford Design was posed to re-purpose the 50,000 square foot industrial space, which would be the new home for New Life Community Church. Since Rutherford was involved in the design process, before the walls were even up. This enabled him to suggest some basic acoustical layouts throughout the space to help with speech intelligibility. The two main walls are not parallel and the entrance hallway and doorways are slightly offset, even though they look symmetrical. Also, the rear main wall is not a straight line; it actually curves. These small architectural details, in terms of non-parallel walls and entrances, naturally help to redirect reflections and sound energy.

“In a house of worship, I’m concerned more with the peripheral seats and the back half of the room,” says Rutherford. “To communicate with those people intimately, the spoken word in this kind of environment needs a high level of intelligibility. In a space like this, regardless of the budget or loudness of the audio system, if you have a six-, seven- or eight-second overall reverb time, there’s just no way it’s going to be intelligible.”

Rutherford installed 51 custom ELiTE ProPanels (4ft x 8ft x 2in) on the walls around the 900-seat sanctuary worship area. ELiTE ProPanels are fabric-covered, acoustic-absorptive panels designed to absorb slap and flutter echoes, providing a more pleasing and accurate listening environment. Rutherford also specified 21 custom ProBaffles (4ft x 20ft x 2in), which were mounted above the light fixture’s line of sight and hang from the ceiling. ProBaffles are absorptive panels wrapped in a lightweight material and designed to be hung vertically from the ceilings in commercial facilities. The panels have a fiberglass core and carry a Class-A fire rating. The edges and corners are square and non-hardened.

“The layout of the ceiling gave us an opportunity to do a fairly symmetrical array of hanging flags to baffle the low-mid frequencies getting toward the back of the room,” continues Rutherford. “After the installation of the Auralex products, the room now sits at about a second-and-a-half reverb, and it sounds great, regardless of where you are sitting in the sanctuary.”

The installation also features several L-ACOUSTICS loudspeakers, Allen & Health front-of-house monitor/mix equipment, as well as several video and lighting products rounding out the acoustic treatment from Auralex for a multi-faceted, complete audio/video system.

ANTON/BAUER INTRODUCES GOLD MOUNT FOR NEW CANON EOS C300

Continues Commitment to Offering Innovative Power Solutions for Industry’s Hottest Cameras

SHELTON, CT, FEBRUARY 6, 2012—Anton/Bauer®, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company and a premier global provider of batteries, chargers, lighting and other mobile power systems for the professional broadcast, video and film industries, is pleased to introduce its QRC-CA940 Gold Mount® solution for the new Canon EOS C300 camera. This latest introduction furthers the company’s commitment to developing power solutions for the industry’s top cameras.

The Canon EOS C300 was designed specifically to meet the demanding needs of today’s cinema industry professionals. Featuring a unique Super 35mm Canon CMOS sensor, revolutionary Canon DIGIC DV III image processor and 50 Mbps 4:2:2 codec, the EOS C300 provides outstanding cinema-quality movie capture in a modular and portable system. To help streamline battery management for Canon EOS C300 users, Anton/Bauer will simultaneously introduce the QRC-CA940, a 7/14 Gold Mount that provides 7.2V power to the camera via DC connector.

“While the QRC-CA940 operates similar to our other 7/14 Gold Mounts, this particular mount will have three PowerTap® outputs where typically we only have one,” says Shin Minowa, vice president of marketing and business development. “The more accessories we can power in addition to the camera, the better. Understanding our customers’ professional applications and goals, this Gold Mount was designed so that users will not have to monitor multiple batteries, therefore reducing downtime in the field, as well as the number of chargers needing to be transported.”

The QRC-CA940 was designed to be compatible with the company’s mounting bracket for 15- or 19-mm rod systems, the MATRIX Cheese Plate, or adapted to third-party support systems (15- or 19mm clamp kits sold separately).

“Using the Shotoku system, our production team developed a new way to display the news on the [television] screen. Virtual 3D graphics were easy and reliable; they caught the attention of viewers and helped us remain the most innovative channel, with the latest technology in Argentina,” declared Gastón Serralta, IT manager for C5N.

“We were very pleased at the results of our integration with Vizrt in Buenos Aires,” said Ebimoto. “Virtual reality systems are a key to the future of television production; they enable small facilities to expand the boundaries of creativity and capture the attention of their audience.”

JVC INTRODUCES 24-INCH HD 3D PRODUCTION ANALYSIS MONITOR

WAYNE, NJ – JVC Professional Products Company, a division of JVC Americas Corp., today introduced the DT-3D24G1U 24-inch HD 3D LCD production analysis LCD monitor. The latest addition to JVC’s Vérité G Series product line, the compact monitor supports virtually any 3D camera setting, with advanced measurement tools to confirm that left and right images have been properly aligned.

With its X-Pol™ circular polarizing system, the DT-3D24G1U displays 3D images that can be seen using inexpensive polarized (passive) glasses, which avoids potential flicker and power issues associated with active shutter glasses. With no need to synchronize glasses with the display, the monitor is ideal for viewing environments where multiple displays are used, such as control rooms or production trucks. Plus, the DT-3D24G1U can be battery powered, making it ideal for location shoots.

Compatible with side-by-side and line-by-line 3D formats, the DT-3D24G1U offers a number of tools for checking 3D signals, including a 3D cursor that enables binocular disparity to be easily adjusted for optimized 3D effects. Other 3D features include unique 3D measurement markers for left and right channels, mirror/rotation of one channel for dual-camera rigs, split left/right signals for fine tuning camera positions as well as iris and white balance, and left/right sequential display to allow viewing of footage without 3D glasses. In addition, a left/right swap allows users to check whether cables from the camera(s) to the monitor are connected properly.

Beyond 3D functions, the DT-3D24G1U is equipped with many professional features found in the Vérité G Series. The LCD panel offers 1920×1200 pixel resolution with 10-bit digital processing and 3G and dual link HD-SDI inputs. Its built-in dual mode waveform and vectorscope provide an easy way to check and monitor input signals from both channels for camera adjustment. The monitor also offers various gamma selection options, displays up to 12 channels of audio metering, supports LTC/VITC time code, and provides on-screen time code display that can show any time code difference between both inputs.

The DT-3D24G1U has a list price of $11,995 and will be available in January 2012.
