Stampede Announces Plans To Bring Its 2012 Big Book Of AV Tour To 13 Cities In The U.S. And Canada

AMHERST, NEW YORK, December 5, 2011 — Seeking to make its 2012 Big Book of AV Tour (BBOAV) even bigger and more successful than its just completed 2011 tour, Stampede, the leading value-added distributor of professional audio video solutions, today announced plans to bring its phenomenally popular Big Book of AV Tour to 13 cities in the United States and Canada in 2012. What’s more, Stampede said it will double the length of each day’s exhibit hours and increase the number of on-site training programs.

“Our 2011 Big Book of AV Tour was the biggest, most successful tour in the three year history of the program,” Stampede President & COO Kevin Kelly said today. “Frankly, given the fact that we hit nine cities and educated several thousand attendees during the 2011 tour, it’s going to be a challenge to make the 2012 tour even bigger and better — but we have the programs underway that will do just that.”

According to Kelly, increasing the number of cities visited, doubling the length of each day’s exhibit hours, increasing the number and variety of on-site training programs, opening up the tour to more end users, and making affordable video conferencing a centerpiece of every tour stop will help strengthen the BBOAV Tour as the largest event of its kind in North America.

“We’re thrilled that the Big Book of AV Tour continues to grow and reach more dealers each year,” Kelly said. “This tour provides dealers across the country a chance to experience the latest AV technologies and equipment and learn not only how to use them, but also which ones to use for each unique job. When coupled with our Stampede University live training events on topics such as 3D technology, touch technology and digital signage, The Big Book of AV Tour is a dealer’s one-stop event for staying up-to-date on everything AV.”

The Big Book of AV Tour supports and extends the reach of the company’s The Big Book of AV, The Ultimate Audio/Video Resource Book. The 2011 tour offered a chance for dealers to see live projector and display demonstrations and take part in Stampede University live training events on topics such as 3D technology, touch technology and digital signage. In addition, dealers in attendance had the opportunity to become CTS and DSCE certified.

Published each year by Stampede, The Big Book of AV contains more than 800 pages and features thousands of products that are ideal for home theaters, schools, houses of worship and just about any venue. The book offers buyer tips for selecting the right AV equipment and recommends products to enhance the performance of displays and projectors. The book also includes a Manufacturer Resource Section with contact info for every featured brand and a glossary of commonly used AV industry terms to help dealers understand the latest technology language. The Big Book of AV is also available for free online at www.bigbookofav.com and is now compatible with iPhones, iPads and Android mobile devices.

Attendees of the 2011 tour saw the latest solutions from a variety of vendors including Atlas Sound, Avteq, BenQ, Casio, Chief, Epson, Gefen, Hall Research, Hitachi Solutions, Kramer, Lumens, Mitsubishi, Mustang, NEC, Optoma, Peerless, Perfect Path, ProSales, TechGlobal, Samsung, Severtson Screens, Sharp and Sony.

ADVANCED SYSTEMS GROUP TO ANALYZE LARGE RASTER ACQUISITON WORKFLOW CHALLENGES AT ANNUAL WORKSHOP

EMERYVILLE, CALIF.– Advanced Systems Group (ASG), a leading West Coast video and film integration firm, will examine large raster acquisition workflow challenges during its annual workshop on Dec. 13 at the SF Film Society | New People Cinema at the New People building in San Francisco. The daylong event starts at 10 a.m. and will include five presentations. The workshop is free and lunch will be served, but attendees are encouraged to register at www.asgllc.com/events/topic-raster-acquisition-workflows-december-13.

“As 4K continues to emerge as a viable acquisition and distribution format, video professionals are still trying to find ways to produce the best images and handle all that data,” said Dave Van Hoy, president of ASG. “This year, our annual conference will detail 4K options at every point in the production process, and explore the best way to manage these file-based workflows.”

The workshop begins with “Let’s Talk 4K,” an overview that explains the technical specifications of the format and explores current choices in 4K acquisition and delivery. There is a noted lack of consensus on several aspects of 4K, which will also be addressed. The session will be led by veteran director of photography and industry consultant Suny Behar, who is currently teaching a Master Class at the UCLA Graduate School of Film and Television in Los Angeles.

“DIT, Data Management, and On-Set Color Workflows” will cover a broad range of filmmaking topics. It will define the differences between DIT and DAM, explain the subtleties of file-based workflows for RED, ALEXA, and other high-resolution camera systems, and examine popular on-set color, dailies, and transcoding workflows. Presenter Jordan Livingston is an independent filmmaker and digital imaging technician who serves the Hollywood and Bay Area markets through his company, DIGILOID, which specializes in digital imaging and workflow for motion pictures, commercials, and corporate productions.

Eric Hanson of Spy Post, a FotoKem post-production company, will discuss the 4K post-production process for commercial film and corporate productions. Additional presentations will address 4K color correction and color management, as well as delivery and projection of large raster content.

AVIOM ANNOUNCES TWO NEW UPDATES FOR PRO64 SYSTEM

Pro64 Firmware Update Version 4.35 and Network Manager Version 2.1 Now Available

WEST CHESTER, PA, DECEMBER 2, 2011—-Aviom’s Pro64® Firmware version 4.35 and Pro64 Network Manager™ version 2.1 are now available for download. more

Edge ShowTek Makes Use of AuviTran EtherSound Unit for Red Bull Fuel & Fury

BUENA PARK, Calif.—More than 5,000 attendees flocked to the site of this year’s Red Bull Fuel & Fury snowmobile jumping event. Held in early November in Chicago, they witnessed seven of the world’s best freestyle snowmobilers at the largest single event of the year.

Edge ShowTek (Northbrook, IL) was tasked with the audio production for the event, making good use of the new AuviTran AVM-500ES unit to maintain an EtherSound network within the entire digital system. The system consisted of a Yamaha PM5D-RH digital console, two Yamaha SB-168ES Stage Boxes, 36 NEXO GEO S8 speakers, 12 CD12 subs split between four towers, six NEXO PS15s, and five NEXO NXAMP 4x4s amplifiers.

The AVM-500ES unit is an EtherSound Network Matrix housed in a 19” 1U rack box for linking and routing up to five EtherSound networks together, Integrating a full matrix router of 320 x 320 audio channels. “The unit worked very well, states Pete Hansen, Operations Manager, Edge ShowTek. The reason we decided to use the AVM-500 was to maintain an EtherSound network throughout the whole system, which would not have been possible without the unit, or at least very undesirable from a cabling standpoint.”

Hansen said the setup for this system was quite unique in that speaker positions were both in front of and behind the Yamaha front of house position. The Edge ShowTek crew used a combination of Cat5 and Fiber Optic cable runs that were fairly long and non-linear with about 200-300 feet between each speaker tower. They were able to save about 1,000 feet of cable run by splitting the ES network in front of, and behind, the front of house position by using the AVM-500.

“We have been using EtherSound as a method of running multi-channel digital audio for years, says Hansen. It’s amazing to hear how well the audio fidelity is maintained when you never leave the digital domain, says Hansen. If you are going to use a digital console, you might as well run in a digital format like EtherSound as much as possible. The AVM-500ES allowed us to do just that over the whole system, and it sounded phenomenal.”

“An event like Fuel & Fury was an ideal use of EtherSound networking given the large distances between microphone sources, speaker towers and the Yamaha front of house, notes Trevor Waller, of Edge ShowTek and A1 for the event. With announcer microphones over 600 feet away from the mix position, the ability to send those sources to the Yamaha PM5D-RH console digitally with virtually no line losses was a great advantage in making sure the event could be heard by everyone even over the roar of snowmobiles in the air. The unit was virtually plug and play and allowed us to save valuable setup time, both in its ease of patching and integration into our system.”

The Sing Off Takes to the Stage with a Live Finale and 100 Sennheiser Wireless Microphones as The Pentatonix Rise to the Top

Pentatonix, seen here singing into Sennheiser SKM 5200 wireless transmitters with MD 5235 capsules, took top honors in season 3’s The Sing Off.

Old Lyme, Conn. – November 30, 2011 – On Monday night, NBC presented the “Live Finale: Top 3 Finalists” of its hit show The Sing Off featuring not only the final three group contestants, but over 100 Sennheiser microphones on stage. The Pentatonix were elected champions of season 3, and music mixer Randy Faustino was on hand to ensure the audio quality was outstanding until the very end.

Faustino, a multiple Emmy award-winning music mixer and CEO/President of Creative Sound Solutions, has been responsible for mixing not only The Sing Off, but other top national prime time programs including The Voice, American Idol and others. Whether he is faced with a live broadcast or an in-studio production, Faustino depends on Sennheiser transmitters and capsules to achieve a great sound. For “Live Finale: Top 3 Finalists” he used over 100 Sennheiser SKM 5200-II transmitters, each coupled with Sennheiser MD 5235 capsules.

Faustino prefers the MD 5235 capsules because of its clear sound and versatility: “It seems to work for everybody, and I never seem to have a hard time getting a great sound,” he says. “Sometimes I have people eating the microphone, other times I have performers more than a foot off the mic — it has to perform equally well in both scenarios.”

Since each performance is a ‘once in a lifetime’ career opportunity for the contenders, Faustino needs to ensure that the mix is the best it can be for whichever group approaches the mic. He says that the Sennheiser MD 5235 mic capsule helps facilitate this: “The technology has to be plug and play,” he says. “I get that one shot at putting a live mix together, and then you have to move on. I have very little EQ on those mics, and they sound fantastic across a range of vocal types — that is the beautiful part of these MD 5235 capsules.”

“You have to have a good, clear sounding capsule so you can pick out the voices and have them defined in the track,” observes Thom Salisbury, Western Regional Sales Manager for Sennheiser. “On a program like The Sing Off, you not only have a variety of frequencies coming into the vocal track, but also tonal and volume differences. The MD 5235 is very sensitive and has a very smooth frequency response — I believe this is why it is our most popular capsule for television and touring.”

Predictable and reliable RF performance
In the case of a live programming scenario such as “Live Finale: Top 3 Finalists” where audio is being broadcast to millions of television viewers, the audio quality needs to be synchronous with solid and reliable RF performance. In the middle of Los Angeles — one of the most difficult RF environments in the world — the challenge can be daunting, especially considering the massive lighting rig and number of microphones operating on the stage at the same time.

Dave Bellamy of Las Vegas-based Soundtronics Wireless was in charge of ensuring that the RF for Monday evening’s performance — and indeed the entire preceding season — was flawless. “In a show like this, ‘pretty good’ isn’t going to get you there,” Bellamy observes. “This is a very demanding and exacting business, and in an extremely overcrowded RF environment, Sennheiser gives me predictable reliability.” Bellamy used Soundtronics’ Phoenix system antenna system in combination with dozens of Sennheiser EM 3732-II wireless receivers to ensure that the audio was free of any RF interference.

How does mixer Randy Faustino manage to stay cool in such a technically challenging and intense production environment? “I have to stay two steps ahead of everything, but I feel secure in the fact that Sennheiser always works. We’ve never had a failure and have always had great product support from Thom Salisbury if we ever need anything.”

AVIOM PERSONAL MIXING SYSTEM ON THE HEAR US FROM HEAVEN TOUR WITH JARED ANDERSON

Musicians Count on the Company’s A-16II Personal Mixers during Multi-city Tour

WEST CHESTER, PA, NOVEMBER 29, 2011 — Aviom Personal Mixers are improving setup and sound on Jared Anderson’s Hear Us from Heaven Tour, in which the popular Christian singer and musician has been traveling throughout the country, visiting churches and other venues for a night of prayer, worship and music. Although the tour takes Anderson and his band to a variety of venues, each with its own unique audio and equipment setup, the Aviom A-16II Personal Mixers ensure that each musician’s monitor mix remains the same, night after night.

Recently performing at churches and college venues in Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Oklahoma, the Hear Us from Heaven Tour has been supplied with sound by Sight & Sound Technologies, a company that specializes in equipment sales and training in the areas of sound lighting and video in churches. For this tour, Sight & Sound Technologies chose to provide the band with the Aviom A-16IIs because they needed a way to address monitoring quickly and easily. They also sought the ability to allow musicians to save and recall their personalized monitor mixes during the hectic setup stage.

“The Aviom system has been a real lifesaver on this tour,” says Kris Johnson, chief operating officer of Sight & Sound Technologies and the audio engineer for the tour. “The A-16II is really helpful for the guys in the band, as they can use the same mixers every night, save their mixes, then recall those mixes—regardless of the sound system we’re plugging into, which is huge for us. All of the guys are just raving about the consistency that they’re getting from the Aviom system.”

Johnson works on a variety of different consoles, depending on what is available at each venue, and he’s handled everything from a Behringer EURODESK mixer to a Midas Pro3 digital console. By using an Aviom AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module, he is able to provide a monitor feed directly to the Aviom Personal Mixers, while also plugging into the existing set of inputs to the main sound system available at the church or venue. This allows the band to get consistency in their monitor mixes and Johnson to integrate quickly into the house sound system without additional gear or hassle. All five members of the band have their own A-16IIs that they use with IEMs (in-ear monitors), with the exception of Anderson, who runs his through a powered speaker.

No matter what the venue or setup, Johnson knows the Aviom A-16IIs will see him through the performance, especially when it comes to monitoring. “We’re in churches that have every type of equipment you could ever want, from mega churches like Bethany World Prayer Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, all the way down to much smaller churches that don’t even use a regular drum kit,” he notes. “We see a lot of different types of setups, so Aviom literally saves the day when it comes to monitoring. Otherwise, my drummer is on some sort of headphone amp or a little hotspot speaker, and neither of those are any good to hear over his drums.”

As for the Aviom AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module, Johnson appreciates that its Thru feature is not dependent on the head amp’s volume. “The Thru feature is just a straight pass through, not like some systems, where if you adjust the gain or head amp, it adjusts your signal going to the board. The Aviom AN-16/i-M Mic Input Module doesn’t do that. It’s a straight pass through, allowing me to get the gain I need at front of house, but I can also adjust the gain going to the guys’ in-ears with the head amp. I really like the versatility the Aviom equipment provides.”

Sight and Sound Technologies was started in 2007 by Kris Johnson and his wife Tara. The business quickly grew and the duo began running the company fulltime in 2009, helping new and existing churches implement audio, video, lighting and portable staging systems. From start-up systems for new church plants and multi-site campuses to designing building systems for existing churches, Sight and Sound Technologies is happy to handle single item purchases all the way up to complete audio, lighting and video systems.

Aviom pioneered personal mixing with its Pro16® Monitor Mixing System and continues to break new ground with the revolutionary Pro64® Series of audio networking products. With tens of thousands of products in the field today, Aviom has set the standard for high performance, scalable digital solutions. All Aviom systems harness the power of A-Net®, Aviom’s innovative digital audio technology that simplifies system design while enhancing flexibility and fidelity.
