DiGiCo Delivers the Ultimate Desks for Ultra Music Festival

Beachsound deploys SD5, SD8, SD9 and SD11 consoles for Miami’s huge EDM event

MIAMI — Audio at an EDM festival, how hard can it be? Triple the usual number of subs and have the DJ send left/right to the console, hand him a wireless mic and crank it up. Easy. Right? Wrong. EDM shows require a specific kind of flexibility and complete reliability as evidenced by Miami’s Beachsound, which relies exclusively on DiGiCo consoles for one of the EDM world’s biggest annual events, Ultra Music Festival.

“We are managing a lot of audio,” says Beachsound crew chief Neil Rosenstock who has headed up the company’s audio team at Ultra for five years. “If you are on a show with 96 inputs and you lose a channel, there are still 95 channels of audio to listen to. If you lose a channel on an EDM show, you just lost half of the PA. The productions look cool, but without the music they’re just blinking lights.”

Rock-solid reliability is a must and it is telling that Beachsound has DiGiCo SD5, SD8, SD9 and SD11 desks in its inventory, and during Ultra every console in the shop goes out on the gig.

“For Ultra 2014 we had an SD5 at the Main Stage feeding an SD11 as the production console,” Rosenstock reports. “We have been all-digital from the time the signal hits the SD-Rack for about four years now. Everything from the console to the amps is run AES and the connection from the SD-Rack to the SD5 is all fiber. We are taking S/PDIF outputs from the DJs to feed the PA along with an analog feed as a backup.”

Lorin White was the house mix engineer on the festival’s primary stage this year and his role is a little different at Ultra than on the typical rock gig. “About two-thirds of the acts travel with their own engineer, but that term in EDM can mean a lot of things,” he says. “Some of them are more like a producer. They’ll show up and check out the PA, and during the show may actually be onstage with their client while I mix. Some will stand with me and supervise, and some are hands-on with the faders. For that last group of guys it is crucial that the console offers the ability to have every control they need during the set immediately at hand and not buried in another layer. The DiGiCo desks give us that ability.”

Ultra is one of the biggest EDM events in the world, drawing some 200,000 attendees to Bayfront Park in downtown Miami every spring. In addition to the SD5 and SD11 at the Main Stage this year, Beachsound provided an SD9 on the Radio Stage and an SD8 for one act on the Live Stage.

In addition to ease-of-use and overall sound quality, Beachsound turns to DiGiCo for some very specific needs for Ultra. In particular, the onboard dynamic process as well as the ease of integration with the Waves plug-in architecture.

“DJs have EQ and that can be a challenge,” says Rosenstock. “The DiGiCo EQ and compression allow us to keep an overall consistency in the sound despite every DJ providing us with very different EQ. The onboard dynamics processing is crucial in managing overall volume no matter how hard the act is pushing the inputs. Ultra is shoehorned into a relatively small area for a music festival and we have to keep it down to 106 dB A-weighted, which can be a challenge.”

“What we are doing is really managing the outer edges of the sonic spectrum,” adds White. He points to DiGiCo’s easy integration of multi-band compression plug-ins as a must-have for these gigs. “Some of the DJs have been known to overdrive the inputs and there is the ever-present low-end whose impact has to be maximized without taking us past our SPL limit. But there are also these high-frequency filter sweeps that many DJs incorporate as an effect. Those can get very harsh and brittle sounding through a big PA without some treatment. The ability to access excellent multi-band compression–be it via the onboard dynamics or plug-ins–means we can treat each part of the spectrum separately. We never have to sacrifice in one area to get another part of it right.”

And Beachsound is spreading the DiGiCo gospel to other parts of the EDM world. “Last year, we had an act come in whose engineer was not familiar with DiGiCo and because of an issue with his console he had to use our SD5,” White recalls. “Initially, he was not happy about it, but he seemed to soften up during the actual show. This year, he was back and told me he has been touring with an SD11 ever since last year’s Ultra.”

Beachsound owner Andre Serafini sums it up by adding, “As a rental house we stock several console brands to meet rider requirements. But when the decision is ours, the choice is always DiGiCo. We wouldn’t do a gig like Ultra with anything else.”

SoundLab Held At USITT With Yamaha Support

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Held at USITT every other year, SoundLab concentrates on free product demonstrations for students, and this year, the conference was devoted to live sound reinforcement. Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. made a key contribution by supplying its latest products set up for the event in the Arena at the Fort Worth Convention Center.

“The idea that Mike Hooker (Head of Sound Design at UC Irvine’s Department of Dramatic Arts) and myself who co-chaired the project together was to provide students with the opportunity to mix live music while being mentored by some of the top people in the field as well as mixing on premium systems, states Erik Alberg, Technical Director for Events and Conferences, Hope College, Holland, Michigan. The ideal system was to be much larger and possibly bigger than students would ever have a chance to mix on with in their own university settings. We came up with a model of having two consoles at FOH and switching the live console from one to the other while bands were performing on stage.”

Alberg said they contacted a lot of manufacturers to see if they were interested in participating. “We needed a console to drive the line array rigs and were thrilled when Yamaha stepped up and offered us not only equipment but the expertise of their staff. Kevin Kimmel, a systems application engineer at Yamaha Commercial Audio was a great help in developing the system layout for FOH and monitor system. We created a network of inputs and consoles that not only worked for the SoundLab mixing events, but also for the special events held at USITT such as the keynote speech and award presentations, along with system demonstrations.”

The console system included three Yamaha CL5 consoles, two at front of house that handled the mixing for the live bands, and one as a monitor console. There was also a CL1 at front of house that switched between the two CL5s and was used for running the special events requirements such as wireless microphones, video feeds, and playback. The whole system was connected via Dante and included Yamaha Rio boxes onstage for inputs and outputs to the mains.

The bands were mixed by students at USITT under the mentoring of Buford Jones and Jim Van Bergen, as well as Kimmel who stepped in for one session and provided invaluable services as monitor engineer for all but one of the bands. Over 70 students had the chance to mix during the event.

“The Yamaha consoles were intrinsic to the success of this year’s SoundLab, says Alberg. They worked well and we had no problems with connectivity or routing thanks to Dante and Yamaha. I was also very impressed with the consoles, their flexibility, and ease of use. Sonically they were great and provided our students with an amazing opportunity. The Yamaha staff was critical to the success of the project. Their patience, understanding, and support were great and a real gift.”

Christie a Premiere Sponsor of Lollipop Theater Network

Christie®, a global leader in visual display solutions, is pleased to announce its donation of digital cinema technology and installation services as a Premiere Sponsor of A Night Under the Stars, Lollipop Theater Network’s fundraising event on April 26. Installed by Christie’s Managed Services team, the Christie Solaria® Series projector and Christie Vive Audio™ immersive cinema system will provide hospital-bound children the opportunity to experience the magic of movies through the screening of 20th Century Fox’s animated hit, Rio 2. The event will be staged outdoors at the Nickelodeon Animation Studio lot in Burbank, California, and will also feature family friendly activities, food and beverages, music, and autographs from attending celebrities.

Established in 2001, Lollipop Theater Network has spent the past 12 years working to bring blockbuster movies to children confined to hospitals due to chronic illnesses or life threatening diseases. Through its collaboration with organizations such as Christie, LOLLIPOP has screened more than 290 films for hospitalized children across 18 states nationwide.

Christie CEO Jack Kline has always been impressed by the extraordinary work of Lollipop Theater Network. Inspired to take on a more active role in supporting LOLLIPOP’s cause, he recently became a member of that organization’s Board of Directors.

“Community outreach has always been important to us here at Christie, and the mission and goals of Lollipop Theater Network are not only easy to admire, but are undertakings that we are thrilled to help support,” said Kline. “Our renowned digital cinema technology will provide LOLLIPOP with the opportunity to give these children an authentic movie theater experience.”

“As a nonprofit, our organization’s success depends on the generosity of our community, and the immense support Christie has given us has been essential in bringing our vision to life for the upcoming A Night Under the Stars event,” said Evelyn Iocolano, executive director and co-founder of Lollipop Theater Network. “We have always appreciated Jack Kline and Christie’s support of our organization and we welcome Jack as a new Board member. It has been great to work with Christie’s Managed Services team, whose superior level of professionalism and technical expertise will help us achieve our ambitious goals on behalf of so many deserving children.”

To “light up” Rio 2 on the big screen, Christie is providing the Christie CP4220 projector, which delivers the brightest image and highest resolution in its class, as well as the most robust and cost-effective 4K DLP Cinema® solution.

Christie’s Managed Services team will supply complete technical support for this event, expertly installing the digital cinema equipment. They are skillfully compensating for many environmental challenges typical of outdoor settings to create the optimum viewing experience for the audience.

“In installing the equipment for this event, we needed to overcome a number of technical and design challenges to ensure safety and deliver vibrant and clear visuals in an unusual, outdoor environment,” said Sean James, vice president, Christie Managed Services. “From mounting and aligning the projectors to safely running power and speaker wires while protecting the equipment from the elements, this event has engaged our team throughout the installation from every angle.”

As a new member of Lollipop’s Board of Directors, Kline joined well-known entertainers such as Anne Hathaway and Billy Bush, who are also on the Board. He is hoping to install permanent equipment in Children’s Hospital of Orange County to provide a more secure and permanent screening room for the hospital’s patients. The facility is one of the many hospitals nationwide with which Lollipop Theater Network works.‬

Alhambra, CA – Opticomm-EMCORE, a leading provider of high-definition video, audio and data transport solutions for Fiber, IP, CATx and Coax networks, will be using the InfoComm 2014 show in Las Vegas on June 18-20 as a platform to demonstrate the quality of the new Eclipse HD as it extends and switches 1080p or 1920×1200 multimedia feeds across a dedicated IP network, sent to a four-panel video wall as example of its capabilities. In addition, other high-quality products for pre- and post-production, live-feed, and Professional A/V will be on display at the booth stand, C7716.

Opticomm-EMCORE will construct a cost-efficient video/audio/data distribution system over an IP network to show design consultants, system integrators and home theater aficionados the painless switching and routing of the new Eclipse HD. This encoder/decoder system provides visually lossless transmission and processing of HDMI 1.3, 5.1 channel audio, RS-232 data and USB HID keyboard/mouse (KVM), over a dedicated Gigabit Ethernet network. A media player, Blu-ray or DVD player, laptop, camera or other HDMI source can send HD signals to the Eclipse HD encoder, which can then be sent to a Layer 2/3 Unmanaged Gigabit Ethernet Switch with IGMP 2.0 (if desired), which lastly can be received by one or more decoders to be connected to single or multiple displays. There are virtually limitless ways to configure a HD matrix by stacking IP switches.

In addition to the Eclipse HD, we will be showing the NV series as a part of the IP network exhibit, which utilizes JPEG 2000 encoding and decoding for lossless DVI, HDMI, and 3G HD-SDI distribution. Also we will also be highlighting, in our booth, the c-linx series, Optiva and GBOX fiber products. The c-linx series are small, stand-alone box units utilizing HDBaseT technology to extend signals for extension up to 100 meters, over CATx. The company will also display the Optiva OTP-1DVI2A1UKM, which has been upgraded with a larger bit-rate of 10GB optics and now supports up to 4K resolution and KVM over a secure, lossless multimode fiber up to 10 km and singlemode fiber up to 25 km. The first in the GBOX Series, GBX-HDMI-VGA, provides for the transmission of either HDMI 1.4b with HDCP and HEAC support, or VGA / Component for legacy stereo analog sources, in a point-to-point configuration. It also supports stereo analog and S/PDIF digital audio, 10/100/1000 Ethernet, bidirectional RS-232 and IR support.

Opticomm-EMCORE’s booth will display the newest and key products that we believe, will cater to consultants and integrators who build and design complex signal network systems and have need of high-quality signal management.

“We are excited to showcase our newest addition to the video-over-IP distribution category, Eclipse HD,” concludes Henok Tafese, Senior Director of Business Development.

Opticomm-EMCORE’s complete breadth of video-over-IP, fiber and CATx/HDBaseT products will be on display at InfoComm 2014, June 18-20, booth C7716 of the Las Vegas Convention Center. For more information, please visit www.opticomm.com, download the EVE/EVD-HD datasheet here, or call 626-293-3400.
