New Control Room at Historic Trinity Church Built Around FOR-A Switcher

Cypress, CA – Located in the heart of Wall Street, Trinity Church was the first Anglican church in Manhattan. Founded in 1697, the iconic church has a rich history, including several signers of the Declaration of Independence (Alexander Hamilton is one) being laid to rest in its burial grounds. Aiming to preserve its 17th century roots while using 21st century technology to spread the message ofthe church, Trinity began planning the construction of a new control room early last year. The new control room was completed last month and is centered around a FOR-A 2 M/E HVS-390HS video production switcher.

The switcher first caught the attention of the house of worship’s director of media, production and operations, William Jarrett, at NAB 2013. “The HVS-390HS switcher is a perfect fit for our church,” explained Jarrett. “We appreciate the amount of inputs it offers and its optional video outputs. A frame synchronizer with every channel was also a big draw to us. We found that there’s an elegance about it that inherently made sense. We needed a system that was easy to use, and the flow of the switcher is simple for our operators to understand.”

In addition to using its video technology to perform IMAG (image magnification) production during Trinity’s services, the parish webcasts all of its Sunday morning and weekday services on its website, reaching viewers worldwide. Concerts from its Grammy-nominated choir, conferences, and other special and live events are also webcast. The first major production in the new studio was Handel’s Messiah, a widespread oratorio house of worship Christmas tradition that was first performed in the New World at Trinity Church.

The new control room was commissioned and blessed on December 8. The event was webcast on Trinity’s website, and can be viewed online here. Jarrett estimates that the switcher will be involved in 450-500 events throughout the course of a year.

“In building a new control room, we made a commitment to doing it right and designing a system that’s future resistant,” said Jarrett. “We live in a multi-platform world, and we created our control room and associated workflow with that as a focus. It’s modular in design. Our technology is designed to ease the production process and make it more streamlined, and we have the ability to swap out a piece of equipment without that affecting everything else. Using high-quality technology to convey the mission of Trinity is critical to us, and FOR-A’s switcher is an integral part of our new control room.”

PixelFLEX Introduces New FLEXCurve LED Video Screen

PixelFLEX, the leading provider of flexible and lightweight LED video screens, continues to heighten the industry standard by taking LED screens to another price and performance level with the introduction of FLEXCurve, available in 8mm, 9mm and 12mm.

FLEXCurve allows for simplified set up and a unique design while holding to the same standards as the company’s existing LED video curtain panels, which have exceeded expectations for notable musicians like Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Thompson Square.

Featuring a compact, strong and modular design, made with heavy-duty aluminum and with the added benefit of weighing under 40 pounds, FLEXCurve’s screen can be adjusted from -10 to 10 degree curve, allowing both convex and concave curves. Additionally, PixelFLEX’s newest LED video screen has a rig and click installation system, making for a seamless, fluid connection between panels. Strategic handle placements allow for an easy set up by a single person, eliminating the need for multiple hands to prep before and during a show.

As with PixelFLEX’s existing line of LED video screens, FLEXCurve is simple to operate and set up – videos and images can be sent to the screen using any computer with a DVI-D connection. In addition, the panels can be stored in a single road case to simplify shipping logistics while minimizing transportation costs. These panels ride four to a case and can be stored at any angle within the case.

“Video content is an essential part of live performances,” said Jeremy Byrd, PixelFLEX’s founder and president. “Today, delivering high quality video content is critical to maximizing the audience’s experience. With the introduction of FLEXCurve, we’re changing the conversation about video screens by providing another high-quality product but tweaking it to simplify and satisfy.”

Designed with the touring client in mind, but ideal for permanent installations as well, the slim and sleek cabinet design has fewer cables, reducing failure rate and increasing reliability. FLEXCurve includes a preview mode, permitting RGB preview testing without the need to connect to an external data source. The system allows for front and rear accessibility, enabling single module replacement and improving serviceability, while a hinged backplate provides easy access to the screen’s back panel.

FLEXCurve joins PixelFLEX’s existing line of LED video screen offerings, which range from 6mm to 100mm.

Yamaha MTX New Firmware and Software Enables AEC and Dugan MY Card Compatibility

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. has announced Version 1.2 firmware and application software for the MTX Series Matrix Processor, the core product of the Commercial Installation Solutions (CIS) product line. MTX v1.2 now makes the processor compatible with the MY4-AEC acoustic echo cancellation card required for distance conferencing and the Dugan-MY16 auto mixing capability card.

The Yamaha CIS Series, launched in 2012, includes the VXC Series Ceiling Speakers, VXS Series Surface Mount Speakers, XMV Series Multi-channel Power Amplifiers, and the MTX Series Matrix Processors specifically designed for the commercial installation solutions market. Now with MTX v1.2, there is an even more comprehensive range of flexibility that will meet the demands of installed applications.

The new software enables compatibility with the two MY cards that was previously only available for use primarily with Yamaha’s DME Series Digital Mixing Engines. The MY4-AEC card eliminates unwanted acoustic echo that is caused by secondary signals of speaker output or reflections from room surfaces that are common in teleconferencing applications. The card is equipped with a noise reduction function that removes steady-state background noise caused by air conditioning components, projector fans, etc. Once the card is installed in the processor, parameter settings can be controlled using the AEC window in the MTX Editor program.

The Dugan-MY16 card, developed by Dan Dugan Sound Design, automatically optimizes the gain distribution of multiple faders simultaneously, allowing sound engineers to focus on their mix rather than keeping track of mic levels. Auto mixing parameters can be set using dedicated software that works in conjunction with the MTX Editor and is available via free download at www.dandugan.com.

“Ever since we launched the Yamaha CIS Series, we have received very strong, positive reactions from the installed sound market regarding its DSP power and the scalability the series provides when configuring a sound solution using amplifiers and speakers,” states Marc Lopez, Marketing Manager, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, Inc. “MTX v1.2 is based on a number of requests from our customers regarding certain functionality and capabilities that are relevant to their applications. So, by adding compatibility with the MY cards, integrators will be able to address an even wider variety of installed sound applications and offer powerful functionality similar to the DME (Digital Mixing Engine) but at a lower cost to customers using the MTX5-D processor.”

Lopez also said that with the recent addition of the Wireless Digital Controller App for Android available free of charge at the Google Play Store, the MTX Series continues to bring extraordinary value to the Yamaha Commercial installation Solutions product line.

Yamaha MTX v1.2 will be released in mid-January and can be downloaded free of charge by visiting www.yamahaca.com.

ASHLY AUDIO’S NETWORK MATRIX PROCESSOR AND AMP SIMPLIFY USER CONTROL DURING STRESSFUL TIMES AT MICHIGAN FUNERAL HOMES

ROYAL OAKS, MICHIGAN: A.J. Desmond & Sons Funeral Directors have been serving families in suburban Detroit, Michigan for nearly a century. The family-owned business has maintained a commitment to serving the bereaved and the community as a whole through counseling, grief recovery groups, and other educational programs, earning A.J. Desmond & Sons Funeral Directors multiple Pursuit of Excellence awards from the National Funeral Directors Association and induction into the association’s Hall of Excellence. This is not a firm that operates by half measures, and so the small frustrations that accumulated from their sound system at the Royal Oaks location motivated them to hire Abel Electronics of St. Clair Shores, Michigan to build a state-of-the-art sound reinforcement system with intuitive operator controls. Now, an Ashly Audio ne24.24M matrix processor, a ne4250.70 multi-channel amplifier, and (critically) three WR-5 programmable remote controls give the funeral home robust, easy-to-use sound reinforcement.

“They used to have to go into the equipment closet to select input sources or change the gain for music or microphone inputs,” explained Mark Monarch, owner of Abel Electronics. “Different people would be in there, and none of them were necessarily technically inclined. It was easy for the gain structure to get messed up.” With an improper gain structure, of course, the sound quality wasn’t commensurate with the caliber of service that Desmond is known for. In addition, the sound system was old and ready for replacement. With Ashly’s modern user control solutions, Abel Electronics could robustly and inexpensively supply each of the home’s three visitation rooms with its own customized control.

At its heart, the new system consists of an Ashly ne24.24M processor outfitted with eight inputs and four outputs paired with a four-channel Ashly ne4250.70 amplifier. The amplifier delivers 250W per channel to new 70-volt SoundTube in-ceiling loudspeakers. In addition, a Marantz USB recorder allows loved ones to record a funeral service. Four new AudioTechnica wireless microphones (two handheld and two lavalier) join two existing CD players and two auxiliary inputs (suitable for iPods and the like) on the input side. Perhaps the most important improvement from the user’s perspective is the addition of three Ashly WR-5 programmable remote controls – one for each sub-dividable space. Monarch programmed them to allow appropriate selection of inputs, input volumes, and output volumes. In addition, they allow simple room combining functionality.

“We love working with Ashly equipment,” said Monarch. “It’s easy to use, easy to program, and we have zero problems with it. We have no customer call backs on account of Ashly gear. Once it’s set, it’s set, and the sound quality is excellent. Desmond loves the new user control because no one has to go into the equipment closet anymore. The closet is now under lock and key! They understand the WR-5 and are happy to have all of the relevant controls so accessible.”

ABOUT ASHLY AUDIO Ashly Audio Inc. is recognized as a world leader in the design and manufacturing of high quality & high performance signal processing equipment and power amplification for use in the commercial sound contracting and professional audio markets. The 37-year old company is headquartered in Webster, New York U.S.A.

DANLEY SOUND LABS SH-50s AT THE COUNTRY’S LARGEST CHURCH – LIFECHURCH.TV

JENKS, OKLAHOMA: With weekly attendance topping 46,000, LifeChurch.tv is, by many counts, the largest church in the country. It has eighteen physical campuses stretching from New York to Florida and back to its headquarters in Oklahoma. As one might guess from its embrace of the “.tv” suffix, LifeChurch.tv also has a vibrant online presence, including a weekly online service and a virtual church in the online virtual world – Second Life. Its Jenks, Oklahoma location recently opened its doors and welcomed new members (or in LifeChurch.tv’s parlance, “partners”) to a progressive church experience anchored by a dynamic live band. As in many of the more recent LifeChurch.tv locations, stereo clusters of Danley Sound Labs SH-50 full-range loudspeakers deliver the full impact of the band and convey spoken word and video playback with crystalline intelligibility.

Summit Integrated Systems of Lafayette, Colorado began working with LifeChurch.tv six years ago and has designed and installed the A/V systems at most of the campus locations. “The fact that LifeChurch.tv continues to build new campuses has given us the opportunity to critique and grow with each design/build project,” explained Shane Beeson, church relationship manager and director of sales and Marketing at Summit Integrated Systems. “After every project, we meet with the LifeChurch.tv technical staff to evaluate the systems and discuss what we can improve upon. Danley Sound Lab products have been a part of Summit’s product line since Danley launched in 2005, and Danley became a part of the LifeChurch.tv conversation five years ago. We were exploring ways to improve the audio quality of their multi-site campuses while still being mindful of budget and to meet their request for a stereo system using point-source boxes.”

Although LifeChurch.tv requests stereo coverage of the worship auditorium at most sites, it also typically compromises on the architecture such that the ceiling height is lower than would be optimal. “Like every church, LifeChurch.tv operates within a budget,” said Beeson. “The ceiling height makes it challenging to get the right coverage and impact. Moreover, acoustic treatment is usually the minimum needed to get the space up and running. That was the case at Jenks, so we designed two 3-box clusters of Danley SH-50s. The supreme pattern control and smooth phase response of the Danley SH-50 gave us the control we needed for excellent coverage of the seats and minimal coverage of the walls. Danley’s innovative solution allowed us to increase performance and offset budget challenges by using a loudspeaker product with maximum pattern control to keep the sound in the seating areas without overexciting the room reflections.” In addition, Beeson noted that because the Danley SH-50 is passive, it required a minimum number of processor and amplifier channels, which helped the project stay on budget.

The Jenks system begins with a Yamaha CL5 paired with RIO stage boxes, which act as a digital snake and patch bay to collect inputs from the stage. The output from the CL5 feeds a Biamp Audia Flex, which handles loudspeaker management and processing. Lab.gruppen C-Series amplifiers power the system. Mounted at the seventeen-foot ceiling, three close-packed Danley SH-50s per side provide the main stereo coverage for the room with forty feet between them. Four subs provide low-frequency extension from below the stage. Six Danley SH-Mini loudspeakers complete the system by providing side-fill at the edge of each cluster and front-fill from the edge of a portable stage when needed.

ABOUT DANLEY SOUND LABS Danley Sound Labs is the exclusive home of Tom Danley, one of the most innovative loudspeaker designers in the industry today and recognized worldwide as a pioneer for “outside the box” thinking in professional audio technology. www.danleysoundlabs.com

River Oaks Retires Analog Console, Upgrades to Yamaha CL5 Digital

BUENA PARK, Calif.—The 600-seat River Oaks Community Church, in Goshen, Indiana, holds contemporary worship services, and on any given Sunday, serves 1,200 of its congregation. With a rotating pool of 25 musicians, a standard worship service consists of 5-10 members on stage. The church recently retired its aged analog console and upgraded to a new Yamaha CL5 digital audio console and Rio 3224-D and 1608-D input/output boxes, purchased from Mid-America Sound in Greenfield, Indiana.

“We had an analog console for about ten years that outlived its welcome”, states Tim Blaum, Program Director at the church and who installed the CL. “We realized we needed to have additional control and mixing space.”

Blaum notes that on occasion, the church had to rent a Yamaha M7CL for outdoor gigs or other special services when they needed a little extra control. “We have a volunteer team that is comfortable in the analog environment using a full bank of physical faders because it’s what we’ve been used to, but we knew it was time to upgrade to digital. Several industry professionals recommended we investigate the new Yamaha CL Series since it has several added benefits. After weighing our options, we heeded their advice and decided to go with the CL5 because of its power and features.”

Prior to the new CL’s arrival, volunteers viewed online tutorial videos, having been familiar with the M7CL. “Yamaha digital consoles have always been strong and reliable, and with the CL’s price point, the console will give us room to grow and expand our worship ministry,” Blaum says. “Talented musicians with years of training and skill lead our ministry, and our production team is eager to help them sound the best they can with our new desk.” The church is currently using the Dante network locally due to its pre-existing snake structure.

Blaum also said the front of house location is an elevated mezzanine, which makes mixing difficult. “We are living by the console’s iPad App; our engineers stay on ground level during rehearsals and worship to make sure our mix is perfect. The labeling on the CL was a major enhancement, but we really love just about every feature it has since we came directly from the analog world. The console sounds great, and since its installation, we’ve had numerous compliments about our mix greatly improving. No doubt, this is an exciting step forward for us.”
