Technomad Expands PowerChiton Series for InfoComm 2013

Compact outdoor amplifier and “breakout box” series adds new model, more features

BOSTON, May 20, 2013
Technomad comes to InfoComm 2013 with new upgrades to its PowerChiton series of outdoor, weatherproof amplifier modules and breakout box accessories, giving end users and systems integrators more audio options for stadiums, resorts and other outdoor venues and facilities.

The compact and low profile of PowerChiton amplifier modules — available in four power levels up to 1600 watts — enables sound contractors to install the modules on light poles and other surfaces at any height for co-location with loudspeakers. A new balanced input provides customers with a choice of balanced and unbalanced connections, and three new integrated crossover filter options (350Hz high-pass, 85Hz high-pass, and 85Hz low-pass) allow installers to optimize amplifier performance for the assigned speakers. Filter options are selected or changed by moving the pre-amp-to-amplifier cable from one pre-amp output to another.

Technomad last year introduced the PowerChiton BreakoutBox, a companion product that enables local audio control at user-friendly locations in the same NEMA-style protective enclosure. Contractors wire the PowerChiton amplifier modules direct to the BreakoutBox, typically installed at eye level so end users can adjust volume and connect devices on the fly.

This year, Technomad introduces BreakoutBox XL, a deeper enclosure offering three expansion bays for use with up to three Technomad wireless microphones and/or custom Technomad Schedulon master audio playout systems. The BreakoutBox XL offers extra storage space so end users can lock and leave devices following an event, and adds a mic/balanced line input channel that combines into a single jack.

“The expansion slots allow customers to truly have a complete PA system for permanent outdoor installation while adding several integrated source options,” said Rodger von Kries, vice president, Technomad. “For applications such as athletic fields and resorts, audio systems can now be installed anywhere with power.”

Technomad will also demonstrate PowerChiton-integrated Apple AirPlay capability for iOS devices. This allows commercial and residential customers to wirelessly stream iTunes audio files and playlists to any iOS device in range within a PowerChiton amplifier or breakout box, reducing costs and infrastructure associated with traditional wiring and cabling.

Technomad will also show the latest design upgrades to its advanced audio loudspeakers, notably redesigned ports to its popular Noho model to enhance bass response. The new design reduces port compression and turbulence at higher SPL levels, and provides low-frequency output of +3dB at 85Hz.

Noho loudspeakers are available standalone or as part of complete Technomad Turnkey PA System with a powered amplifier, six-channel mixer, microphones, cables and more in a 6RU protective equipment rack. Mounting options include outdoor yoke mounts to simplify hanging, and Technomad’s recently-introduced stainless steel mount. Both are specifically built to survive long-term outdoor conditions, with the stainless steel mount able to tightly lock in Technomad loudspeakers from multiple fly points.

Technomad will exhibit this year at Booth 513. InfoComm 2013 takes place June 12-14 at the Orange County Exhibition Center in Orlando.

Energy Squad ecoInsight Lighting Proposal Tool Creates New Sales Opportunities for Dealers

iPad-based resource allows Energy Squad dealers to easily specify, source and create proposals for LED lighting projects

BETHESDA, Md. – May 16, 2013 – Energy Squad, the consumer electronics industry’s first full service green tech distributor, introduces the Energy Squad ecoInsight Lighting Proposal Tool, a mobile resource that allows dealers to easily specify, source and create proposals for LED lighting projects. This unique software program reduces the time it takes dealers to create energy efficiency proposals nearly in half.

“The Energy Squad ecoInsight Lighting Proposal Tool is a dealer resource unlike any other,” said Jonathan Stovall, president of Energy Squad. “No other tool, resource or app has the functionality to serve as a one-stop, full-support solution for specifying and sourcing the industry’s best high performance LED bulbs and fixtures. Now dealers have access to Energy Squad’s complete LED product catalog and the capability of producing client proposals with detailed energy saving value propositions—right on the job site.”

At the heart of the Energy Squad ecoInsight Lighting Proposal Tool—created in conjunction with ecoInsight Inc.—is an easy-to-use iPad® app that intuitively organizes specific information relative to each specific proposal. With the ability to enter all aspects of the energy saving equation in one program, dealers can now efficiently collect project data in real time.

Once information about the lighting needs for a project have been collected, a dealer can instantly access Energy Squad’s entire catalog of LED lighting brands and products to specify the appropriate solutions for the setting. Energy Squad dealers also have the added benefit of turning to Energy Squad’s team of experts via the Energy Squad Support Hotline for immediate assistance in selecting the right product for every application.

Within a very short time, the dealer can create an in-depth proposal for the client, illustrating the project cost and payback period, as well as a comprehensive analysis of long-term cost savings based on the client’s conversion to the specified LED lighting products.

Once the proposal has been accepted, the dealer can again turn to Energy Squad to supply all the products for the project, and rely upon the full-service distributor to assist with technical support, even after the sale.

Energy Squad will also host a series of short informative training videos that walk its dealers through each step of the ecoInsight proposal generating process. The first live ecoInsight webinar will be held Tuesday, May 21 at 11 a.m. EST.

Technomad Brings Professional Sound to Cowboy Fellowship Arena

Venue attached to worship facility injects excitement into live events with new advanced audio loudspeakers and subwoofers

BOSTON, April 22, 2013 — The Cowboy Fellowship Church in southern Texas is a unique worship facility that preaches evangelism, discipleship and service — with an adjoining 2800-seat live event venue on campus. The church hosts a variety of events in the venue, from all-day rodeos and bull-riding clinics to musical performances.

The venue opened in 2012 without a professional sound system, using standard stage equipment to produce and amplify audio. The church soon hired Buster Burch as facilities administrator, who specified and installed an advanced audio system to cover the entire arena in a more consistent manner. Burch researched various options and purchased a Technomad Turnkey PA System to ensure exceptional audio quality and long-term durability in the local environment. The complete system included four loudspeakers and four subwoofers along with a complete audio headend — an unusual combination.

“I wanted to put together a system that looked good, sounded good and would last,” said Burch. “Our philosophy is that it’s worth putting extra money into something that we know will last a long time. This system isn’t just for us; it’s for future generations.”

The system is unusual in that each Technomad Berlin loudspeaker, mounted 20 feet off the ground, is accompanied by a Technomad Oslo subwoofer mounted 10 feet directly below. The Berlin and the Oslo are the most powerful loudspeaker and subwoofer models in the company’s portfolio.

“I had a real desire for bass in this venue, as bass is what suffers the most when you work outside,” said Burch. “If I am showing a video of a fireworks display, I want everyone in the stands to hear and feel that boom. The Oslo gives me exactly what we needed out of the bass at the low end. I’m very pleased.”

Burch adds that the Berlins produce plenty of power, with intelligible voice and full-range musical reproduction. He notes that the wide dispersion ensures that he can walk the entire length and width of the arena without hitting a dull spot.

“We’ve had several events, and the audience feedback is that the audio is crisp and clear and not overly loud,” said Burch. “I’ve had people tell me that they don’t hear the normal delay and bounceback common in other arenas. The system works together as one giant loudspeaker to deliver audio across the entire bleachers. I have true high-end and plenty of low-end and mid response. And the sound envelope per speaker is incredibly large.”

Typical venue events include team ropings, steer ropings, bull riding clinics, and ranch rodeos featuring men and women. Birch adds that the church plans to hold more live concerts moving forward, as well as special events such as Christmas services.

This means that the church also needed a durable sound system to ensure longevity. Burch evaluated the entire facility upon joining the staff, and quickly realized that weatherproof equipment was required. A roof provided coverage overhead, but open air surrounding the venue raised concerns. The requisite combination of durability and high quality audio ultimately led him to Technomad.

“We’re about 30 miles south of San Antonio in the town of Jourdanton, and we get a lot of dust and wind as well as some cold and condensation,” said Burch. “I like how the drain holes at the bottom of the cabinets expel condensation to keep them dry. I also used Technomad’s new stainless steel mounts, which are very strong and sturdy in addition to being weatherproof. They lock in really well and give us flexibility to accurately adjust the angle and direction of each loudspeaker.”

Burch purchased the Turnkey PA System from ProAudio.com of Grand Prairie, Texas. The complete system included a pre-wired, protective equipment rack with an audio amplifier, six-channel mixer and three microphones; as well as all required cables and connectors to expedite installation. Burch added a Mackie wireless control board for remote audio adjustments, as well as Sennheiser wireless equipment.

Barix Integrates with Enghouse Interactive Applications for Avaya CS 1000 IP Phone Systems

Solution enables IP voice paging over analog speakers via digital phone systems

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND, March 25, 2013 — Conversion from analog to digital phone systems brings many benefits, from enabling voice communication on a common network to programming data applications. The transition also has its share of challenges, such as leveraging analog devices within digital voice environments. This includes enabling IP-based voice paging over existing analog speakers.

IP audio and control specialist Barix now collaborates with Enghouse Interactive, an enterprise-level communications software and services company, to eliminate this challenge in schools, hospitals, warehouses and other facilities transitioning to digital phone systems.

The solution extends the power of Enghouse Interactive Applications for Avaya CS 1000 (formerly Datapulse Progression), which enables IP voice paging in leading digital phone systems, to analog speakers using low-cost Barix IP audio hardware to receive and decode live voice. This adds functionality without forcing end users to discard speaker systems — thereby reducing costs and simplifying installations. The solution is also viable for decoding pre-recorded emergency notifications and data-centric audio applications, like bell schedules in K-12 schools.

“We’re essentially turning an analog speaker into an IP speaker with Barix,” said Dane Smith, technical services engineer, Enghouse Interactive. “It’s ideal in situations where it’s difficult or unsuitable to add phones, such as in school and hospital hallways. Instead, our customers can use existing systems by removing ceiling tiles and placing a Barix decoder between the Ethernet cable and the speaker.”

Enghouse Interactive Applications for Avaya CS 1000 were developed to enable organizations to leverage their investment in IP by delivering practical, converged business applications to Avaya IP telephones. Applications include voice paging, pre-recorded announcements, broadcast alerts and RSS feeds on IP phones for the Avaya CS1000 PBX system. The software is added to existing IP phone systems instead of requiring end users to purchase a separate paging system. Enghouse Interactive Applications for Avaya CS 1000 customers can subsequently pick up any receiver and page to single points or multiple zones; or initiate pre-recorded announcements from the IP phone or the Applications for Avaya CS 1000 web-based administration page. This enables remote activation of audio warnings in emergency situations.

Enghouse Interactive brings Barix into projects that extend IP voice paging and pre-recorded announcement capability to analog speakers. Barix Exstreamer IP decoders are shipped direct to the end user; Enghouse Interactive simply registers each device’s corresponding IP address to the network. All Barix devices are configured to receive multiple multicast streams, ensuring reliable delivery and minimal network traffic congestion.

Smith notes that the Barix interface is simple to learn and easy to use. “We investigated several IP speaker solutions, and chose the Barix Exstreamer for its simplicity and reliability,” he said. “One of the first questions asked when talking to new customers is whether they intend to send voice or pre-recorded audio announcements to IP speakers. The Exstreamers are easy to set up and once installed, listen for multicast streams on a specific port and reliably play out any messages that are sent out across those multicast addresses.”

Smith adds that more than one multicast address can be assigned to the same speaker for maximum impact. “The customer can have IT support, sales and finance as different zones, yet pages to any of the three will still go to the same speaker using Barix, which makes it so easy to deploy,” he said.

San Lorenzo High School Sounds Off With New Technomad Turnkey PA System

Bay Area systems integrator chooses Technomad for high quality, durability and ease of installation

BOSTON, March 4, 2013San Lorenzo High School, part of the San Lorenzo Unified School District in the Bay Area of California, has installed a new Technomad Turnkey PA System to electrify sports and special events in its outdoor campus stadium. The complete solution, including four weatherproof loudspeakers and a complete, pre-wired signal processing equipment rack, will deliver superior audio quality to up to 1,500 spectators come spring.

The new audio system is the first of its kind at the high school. The timing of the installation ensures the system will improve public address quality for this year’s graduation ceremony, and will otherwise inject new life into home athletic events.

“This installation represents a significant milestone for San Lorenzo High School, as it had no real PA system previously in place and was relying on outdated field horns for use during sporting events,” said Rick McKinney, owner and president of the Hayward, California-based Lloyd F. McKinney Associates, which managed the installation.

San Lorenzo High School sought a versatile, great-sounding solution that covered the entire stadium and could remain outdoors year-round. The local climate produces heavy rains and winds in the winter months, and the school wanted to avoid the costs of replacing damaged equipment.

“We knew Technomad was the perfect match for this project when we heard their requirements,” said McKinney. “We’ve worked with Technomad many times, and we knew the superior clarity, versatility and fully weatherproof design of their loudspeakers were right in line with the school’s needs. The audio is crisp and clear, and if they get soaked it won’t make a difference in sound quality.”

McKinney chose Technomad Noho weatherproof loudspeakers, noting that they generate a very broad and smooth response, with plenty of power to cover the entire field. He mounted two on the home side and two on the visitor’s side to provide more flexibility for music and band-related productions. The complete solution includes the pre-wired signal processing rack, with an amplifier and mixer; and all required cables and connectors for the loudspeaker installation.

Despite some rain delays, McKinney had the system up and running in a few weeks. “Rain softened the ground, so we had to install plywood to keep the scissor lift from sinking into the new grass,” he said. “Once secured, we quickly mounted the loudspeakers, attached the cables, plugged in the mixer and amplifier, and turned on the system. It was seamless.”

McKinney notes that the input connector for an iPod and Mp3 player in the signal processing rack is a favorite feature. He added a wireless solution for field-level iPod control for special events.

“Features like this are important for good sound quality,” he said. “We live in a highly connected, audio-rich environment, and today’s adolescents expect the same audio quality from pre-show and halftime music that they get from their iPods and Mp3 players. The Technomad system delivers on this, and the Nohos reproduce the full musical range, with plenty of high end and very good lows and mids.”

McKinney is planning another Technomad installation at Arroyo High School in the same school district this spring. In the meantime he is relishing the success of this project for good reason.

“My children and my wife were educated through the San Lorenzo Unified School District, and I attended from the fifth grade,” McKinney said. “I’m honored to have directed this installation.”
