ABS, Experience Church.tv Announce AVL Expo for Worship Community

SEATAC, WA — Professional video and audio systems integration firm ABS (Advanced Broadcast Solutions), in collaboration with Experience Church.tv®, will present the Audio, Visual, Lighting Conference and Expo (AVL Expo) on Friday, March 9, 2012, at Experience Church in Puyallup, Wash. The one-day conference, specifically designed for the worship community, will feature educational sessions, panel discussions, and an exhibit hall with a select group of vendors that meet the needs of AV practitioners and church pastors.

“At AVL Expo, we speak the language and propose solutions that small to medium-sized churches relate to,” said Dennis Cummins, Pastor at Experience Church.tv. “The Northwest seems to be isolated from a lot of the amazing trade and tech shows in Orlando, Houston, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles. I know of many pastors that have limited budgets who cannot afford to fly volunteers across the country to gain this information, which is so desperately needed.”

Conference sessions will address a number of important topics, including cameras, image magnification (I-MAG), lighting and staging, streaming, and live and broadcast audio mixing. Mobile video will be a particular area of focus during AVL Expo. Cummins said churches often fall behind technology trends, but mobile video is too important to ignore.

“In order to make a mobile app appealing to the end user, creating compelling content is going to be a necessity. This requires the right tools and training in applying audio, video, and lighting tools,” he explained. “While many of the AVL sessions will be reinforcement and added layers from previous sessions, the information gained will be applied to mobile video applications.”

“Experience Church.tv is an excellent example of a ministry that has embraced audio and video technology with great success,” said Mark Siegel, President of ABS. “This is our fourth AVL Expo together, and we hope the show will continue to inspire smaller congregations to maximize their use of AV technology cost effectively.”

Courtesy of ABS, registration is free for the first two people registered from each church, and complimentary lunch will be provided. Additional attendees will be permitted based on availability, but space is limited. For more information and registration information, please visit www.avlexpo.com.

FOR-A to Show Multi-Format Production and Routing Switcher for First Time in Middle East at CABSAT 2012

Strong Presence at Trade Show Combined with New Office in Dubai Demonstrate Importance of Middle East/Africa Market

Tokyo, Japan – FOR-A Company Limited, a leading manufacturer of video and audio systems for the broadcast and professional video industries, announces that the company will have a strong presence at CABSAT 2012, the largest digital media and satellite expo in the MEA (Middle East and Africa) region. This year’s trade show—taking place from February 28 through March 1, 2012 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre in the UAE—is expected to be the biggest since the annual conference began 18 years ago. Over 750 exhibitors have already registered to participate.

At its booth in Sheikh Saeed Hall 3-Stand S3-19, FOR-A Company Limited will showcase a wide range of products, two of which are being shown in the Middle East for the first time.

These two HD/SD products—both of which debuted at NAB 2011—include the HVS-4000HS digital video switcher and MFR-3232 routing switcher. A multi-format production switcher available in 2, 2.5, or 3-M/E configurations, the HVS-4000HS integrates a DVE, multiviewer, up/down converter, video file support, and external device control, among other features. Leveraging the format converter, the switcher can mix HD and SD signals up to 48 inputs and 24 outputs. Also in the CABSAT booth will be the HVS-350HS HD/SD 1.5-M/E video switcher – a compact, three-rack unit switcher.

The MFR-3232 is FOR-A’s top of the line model in the MFR-5000 Series of multi-format routing switchers. It scales from 16×16 in one rack-unit to the MFR-3232’s 32×32 capacity in a two rack-unit space. MFR-3232 routers support tight integration with multiviewers as well as a built-in Web server, which provides external control using a browser.

The following products will also be on display at CABSAT:

– FA-9500 multi-purpose signal processor, which serves as a frame synchronizer, up/down/cross/aspect converter, color corrector, and video optimizer, among other signal processing functions in 3G/HD/SD environments.
– VFC-7000 HD Variable Frame Rate Camera capable of high-speed 700 fps HD recordings and slow motion replays
MV-3200 multiviewer, which provides 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, SD-SDI, analog composite and PC mixed input capability and free-layout window.
- LTR-100HS video archiving recorder, which provides LTO-5 recording for media server applications as well as file-based and long-term storage.
- VRCAM2 sensor-less live virtual studio system
- FVW-500HS HD/SD video writer

All of the products slated for display at CABSAT are new to the market and designed to offer maximum price performance in a compact solution suited to today’s multiformat, multistandard environment.

“We’re looking forward to meeting with broadcasters and video professionals at CABSAT 2012. MEA is one of the fastest growing communications markets in the world,” said Mr. Hiro Tanoue, deputy senior general manager, Overseas Sales & Marketing, for FOR-A Company Limited. “For this reason, we’re committed to having a very strong presence in the Middle East, both with our product showcase at CABSAT 2012 and with the opening of our new Dubai office. We opened the Dubai office to provide responsive customer sales and technical support to broadcasters and other A/V professionals across the MEA region.”

UK Digital Console Manufacturer DiGiCo Chosen For Live Music Production At 54th Annual GRAMMY® Awards

UK-based digital console manufacturer, DiGiCo, was the live music console of choice at the 54th Annual GRAMMY® Awards ceremony in Los Angeles, as specified by longtime show production partner ATK AudioTek. The 3-1/2 hour music celebration and ceremony garnered the second highest ratings of any GRAMMY airing with approximately 41 million viewers.

A combination of five of DiGiCo’s newer SD10 consoles (two as ‘redundant’ backups for monitors) along with one of its larger format SD7s handled FOH and monitor duties—for a total of 400+ I/O’s and 256 mic preamps distributed between 6 SD Racks—among four engineers in three locations within the Staples Center arena.

The entire PA system was powered by a versatile Optocore fiber optic network, which made it possible for the consoles to tie together seamlessly and also allowing the signal path to stay 100% digital from the mic preamps to amplifiers. Additionally, the Optocore network cut the traditional massive wire clutter down to merely two strands of fiber per console.

“The show’s producers continue to raise the bar in broadcast entertainment year after year and we needed to follow suit with the technology,” said Mikael Stewart, ATK’s production mixer and VP Special Events. “By using the best and most advanced tools, we guarantee the highest fidelity for every performance. The sonic quality of the DiGiCo consoles was one of the biggest assets this year, in addition to the Optocore infrastructure that allowed complete flexibility and accessibility.”

The process to vet the DiGiCo consoles began several years ago, when ATK began to contemplate making a switch from the consoles that had been used for nearly a decade. ATK’s Stewart along with audio consultant Jeff Peterson were instrumental in the decision to bring DiGiCo onboard and into the mix.

Peterson designed the show’s PA and console system and functioned as the systems engineer during the event, with assistance from audio consultant Andrew “Fletch” Fletcher. Ron Reaves was at front-of-house on an SD7 mixing all the musical performances alongside with Mikael Stewart, who handled all the non-music production assets on an SD10. On stage right and left respectively, Tom Pesa and Mike Parker facilitated monitor mixes for the artists on both performance stages on a pair of SD10s (with an additional two serving as ‘redundant’ backups).

“There was a noticeable difference in how the system sounded this year,” recalled Peterson, “and the comments and compliments came from touring and recording engineers alike. It’s not that the sound was bad in previous years by any means, but the overall intelligibility and the quality of the audio was noticeable. There was detail that we had never heard before, which we attributed to the addition of the DiGiCo consoles.”

“Not surprisingly, DiGiCo offers the most flexible, high performance range of digital audio mixing systems available today,” added Group One Ltd president Jack Kelly, DiGiCo’s US distributor. “With the expanding I/O and processing requirements of most of today’s large productions, including the recent GRAMMY awards show, the DiGiCo SD Range of consoles are ideal solutions for today’s engineers.”

HARMAN’s JBL ScreenArray® and VRX Series Loudspeakers Show Their Star Quality at the Academy Theater at Lighthouse International In New York

NORTHRIDGE, California – The Academy of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences (AMPAS®), known worldwide for its annual Academy Awards® ceremonies, recently completed a total remodeling of its East Coast showcase, the Academy Theater at Lighthouse International in New York City. The 220-seat auditorium was re-done in spectacular fashion, with an interior by renowned theater designer Theo Kalomirakis and an audio system including JBL’s 5732 ScreenArray 3-way high-power loudspeakers, 4642A dual-18-inch subwoofers, and VRX932LA Constant Curvature loudspeakers with VRX918S subwoofers.

Lighthouse International is a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting vision loss, and its headquarters is host to the Academy Theater. The Academy financed and upgraded all projection and sound equipment according to its standards, while Lighthouse International board member Charles S. Cohen and his wife Clo, financed the beautification of the space. Digital Media Systems of New York, a specialist in providing projection and sound for the motion picture industry, was contracted to install the new audio/video system.

“Since the Lighthouse Theater is the Academy’s East Coast showplace, we knew the sound and picture quality had to be nothing less than the absolute best,” noted Gregg Paliotta of Digital Media Systems. “However, all the speakers had to be completely hidden. Designer Theo Kalomirakis understands the importance of great sound as a vital part of the cinema experience – yet was insistent that the speakers should not intrude upon the elegant interior design of the Academy Theater.”

“The installation is also unique in that it’s really two installations in one,” Paliotta pointed out. “The Lighthouse Theater is used as both a screening room for films and as a traditional stage for concerts, plays and other events. When films are being shown, the Microperf cinema projection screen rolls down from the ceiling. Then a motorized masking, scrim and house curtain system is engaged. When in final position, the stage has turned into an amazing screening room front end.”

“Our solution to accommodate the theater’s dual-purpose nature seems obvious in retrospect – we installed two separate audio systems. We went with JBL ScreenArray 5732 loudspeakers and 4642A subwoofers for movie screenings, and JBL VRX932LA loudspeakers and VRX918S subs for everything else.”

“The architecture wasn’t the easiest to work with, as there were ‘wings’ projecting from the walls on either side of the stage that had to be dealt with, but Kalomirakis and I came up with the solution of building the three VRX932LA speakers per side right into the wall with one VRX918S per side, and hiding the line arrays behind fabric.”

Placing the ScreenArray 5732 speakers and 4642A subwoofers required a little more ingenuity. Paliotta’s solution: “We mounted the ScreenArray speakers and subwoofers on wheels. The staff rolls them in behind the acoustically transparent perforated screen when movies are being shown, and rolls them out after the closing credits. Instead of figuring out how to locate and hide such massive speakers and subwoofers, we came upon the idea of just keeping them off the stage when not in use, and as a result, not having anything to hide in the first place!”

The result is optimized sound quality for all the Lighthouse Theater’s presentations. “It wasn’t ever not going to be JBL product,” noted Paliotta. “I’ve been a projection and sound supervisor for AMPAS for 10 years, and I know the capabilities of JBL. The ScreenArray 5732 loudspeakers are proven performers that are specifically designed for a cinema environment, and can be placed behind a perforated screen without adverse acoustic effects. The VRX932LA speakers and 4642A subwoofers gave us the coverage, clarity and low-end presence and articulation we needed in their respective applications.”

BSS Soundweb London processors are used as the digital crossovers for the speakers and subwoofers.

Sennheiser Helps Renowned Winter Carnival in Minnesota Usher in its first Annual ‘Silent Disco’

St. Paul, Minn. – February 14, 2012 – At the Beer Dabbler Winter Carnival Craft Beer Festival in St. Paul, an annual event that hosts over 60 breweries presenting over 200 craft beers, participants are always looking for new ways to interact and have fun while frolicking in the freezing cold Minnesota air. This year, the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company of Chippewa Falls, Wis. sponsored its first ‘silent disco’ during the festival. The unique event featured 30 pairs of Sennheiser RS 120 wireless headphones for attendees to enjoy while shaking it up on the dance floor.

The silent disco, which lasted 4.5 hours on the evening of January 28th, was an instant success, drawing both eager dance participants and curious onlookers who found the spectacle entertaining to watch — even through bystanders could not hear the music. From a technical perspective, the event could not have been simpler to run, requiring just 30 pairs of Sennheiser RS 120 headphones, two Sennheiser transmitters, an Apple iPad and an Apple iPod Shuffle.

“People were skeptical at first, but by 8:00 p.m. when the disco closed, there were more than 100 people still waiting in line for their turn to dance,” said Matthew Kenevan, owner and founder of Beer Dabbler. “Everyone loved the silent disco, whether they were dancing or watching, and the Sennheiser RS 120 wireless headphones delivered excellent sound quality while making the technical side as simple as possible to run the event.”

The silent disco was designed and run by Full Compass Systems, a national leader in professional audio, video, A/V and lighting systems. In addition to the audio equipment that formed the basis of the silent disco, Full Compass Systems also provided the disco lighting (and disco ball) under a canopied 25 x 25-foot dancing area.

“When we were approached about doing the silent disco, we immediately recommended Sennheiser RS 120 headsets,” said Manny Figueroa, national/international account manager at Full Compass Systems. “They delivered outstanding audio quality throughout the evening — even in 17-degree temperatures — with no additional battery charge required.” A Leinenkugel refreshment stand kept the dancers’ thirst quenched while they danced between the hours of 3:30 and 8:00 pm.

Following the overwhelming success of its very first silent disco, the Beer Dabbler Winter Carnival will now make this an integral part of the festival each year. Kenevan plans to double the size of the event next year, and will purchase twice the amount of Sennheiser RS 120 wireless headphones.

“We had a lot of good feedback on both the silent disco and the Sennheiser RS 120 wireless headphones,” Kenevan commented. “I was able to deliver top of the line audio quality for everyone who participated. I could not have been more impressed with the outcome. I’m looking forward to adding more next year!”
