CRAS Sets Broadcast Audio Students on the Right Track with HARMAN Studer Vista Consoles and JBL Professional LSR6300 Studio Monitors

GILBERT, Arizona – Located in the Arizona desert, the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences (CRAS) is an oasis for aspiring audio professionals. Established in 1980, CRAS offers a comprehensive educational program designed to prepare students for the fast-paced, challenging world of audio recording and sound engineering. Recently, CRAS expanded its Master Recording Program to include a Broadcast Audio segment, and outfitted its facilities with world-class HARMAN equipment that includes Studer Vista digital consoles and JBL Professional LSR6300 Series studio monitors.

The Broadcast Audio segment focuses on the opportunities and workflows and technologies that are specific to live television broadcast. Students will work out of the CRAS Broadcast audio production room as well as the CRAS mobile production trailer and work hands-on with the Studer broadcast audio mixing consoles. “Our program has always required students to study onsite for 30 weeks and then go on a mandatory internship, but we expanded that to six more weeks in our program and that includes the new Broadcast Audio phase,” said Robert Brock, Digital Department Director at CRAS. “We want our students to understand the requirements of working in broadcast production—being able to focus while working under a director and handling the pressure that comes with live broadcast.”

Brock noted a need at the educational level to raise awareness of opportunities in the broadcast industry. “The problem is a lot of people haven’t had the exposure to audio for broadcast, so there’s kind of a feeling within the broadcast industry that there isn’t a passion for audio,” Brock said. “We want to make our students aware of the numerous opportunities that exist for audio engineers in broadcast.”

While in the development stages of the Broadcast Audio segment, CRAS found an ideal partner in Studer. “We never want to do anything halfway when it comes to technology, because we want to serve the students but also want to show the industry how committed we are. A lot of manufacturers offer educational discounts and that’s fine, but we really wanted an educational partner and something that was mutually beneficial to the manufacturer and to our students. And this is where Studer really stepped up, they really understood that we wanted a partner that had some vision of their own.”

This vision led to the creation of StuderBroadcastAcademy.com, developed in partnership between Studer and CRAS. The training program is available to professional engineers but also provides the basis of the curriculum at CRAS. Students can operate a Vista 9 console in the audio production room, a Vista 5 in the mobile broadcast unit, or get training online at StuderBroadcastAcademy.com using the Studer Virtual Vista software.

“When you sit behind the Vista 9 or the 5, the user interface with Vistonics™ displays makes it really intuitive once you have it set up and configured,” Brock added. “It’s very easy to take a student who knows very little about consoles and explain just a few things and they can navigate the system, which isn’t true of all consoles out there.”

In addition, CRAS outfitted its studios with two 5.1 surround sound systems consisting of JBL LSR6325 studio monitors with LSR6312S studio monitor subwoofers. “I was at JBL’s headquarters in Northridge, California and [JBL Professional’s Senior Manager, Recording & Broadcast] Peter Chaikin showed us the LSR6325 monitors and we really liked them,” Brock noted. “They were the right form factor and sound really great. What I really like is as a system when coupled with the sub, they sound better than anything else out there. As a singular system, it jibes together really well.”

CRAS worked closely with veteran audio engineer Fred Aldous and other professionals to help CRAS devise the approach of the Broadcast Audio segment. “Fred has been working with our instructors once a week to get them up to speed on everything, and in the meantime we’ve reached out to NASCAR, the NFL and other organizations to get connected with some A1 engineers in the field. We’re really trying to connect closely with the industry,” Brock said.

Christie D4K25 Projector Wins PIPA Award

Christie®, a global audiovisual technologies company, is proud to announce that it recently received the first ever PIPA Award for the Christie D4K2560 DLP® 4K projector with TruLife™ electronics at Prolight + Sound 2014 in Frankfurt, Germany.

For the past 15 years, the Musik Media Verlag publishing house in Germany has organized the highly regarded Musikmesse International Press Award (MIPA), which honors the outstanding products for the music industry. Following the success of MIPA and to celebrate its 15th year, Musik Media decided to create the Prolight + Sound International Press Award (PIPA) for the first time. PIPA is an award that recognizes the best products in the professional audio and video industry, and is voted for by a global community of over 100 trade journalists working in the Pro-AV industry.

Nominated in the “Video / Projection Devices” category, the Christie D4K2560 with TruLife™ electronics won the award, having fended off competition from Digital Projection’s HIGHLite Laser 12K and Panasonic’s DZ12K projectors.

Christie D4K2560 Projector

The award-winning Christie D4K2560 is a high-end 3-chip DLP® projector that has native 4K (4096 x 2160) resolution, offering ultra-realistic images and smoother video. In addition, the PIPA award particularly highlights the achievement of the unique Christie TruLife electronics, a breakthrough in high frame rate and high-resolution video projection. Christie TruLife enables 4K DLP® at 120Hz performance through its support of a video-processing pipeline of up to 1.2 Gigapixels per second – 10 times faster than full high-definition bandwidth – which not only benefits the Christie D4K25 and D4K35, but also permits the Christie Mirage 4K25 and Christie Mirage 4K35 to support various 3D interconnectivity formats.

Klaus Hilles, regional sales director DACH (Deutschland, Austria, Switzerland) for Christie, was presented with the award at a joint evening ceremony for the MIPA and PIPA awards at the Prolight + Sound show in Frankfurt; over 300 representatives of international manufacturers and distributors were in attendance.

Afterwards, Michael Garrido, senior product manager, Christie, commented, “It gives us great pleasure to receive this PIPA award and I would like to thank the international press for voting for our Christie D4K2560 DLP projector with TruLife electronics. It is particularly pleasing to see our products and technology being recognized in this way, especially as 4K is such a key focus for Christie.”

Lighting Designer Robert Coleman and Bullet For My Valentine Find the Perfect Match in HARMAN’s Martin Professional M1 Console

MOSCOW, Russia – Moscow’s Arena Club played host to the famous Welsh band, Bullet for My Valentine, on March 6 with HARMAN’s Martin Professional lighting fixtures and the M1 Console, provided by Moscow’s Euroshow Rental Company. Robert Coleman, the lighting designer for the tour and Moscow show, deployed Martin to bring out the most of his creative ideas.

The set of lighting fixtures included 10 MAC 700 Profiles (six on the middle truss, four on the back truss), 14 MAC 401 RGB Zooms (four on the side truss, five on the middle and five on the back), nine Atomic 3000 DMX strobes, six MAC Viper Profiles and the M1 Professional Lighting Console.

Coleman, who was introduced to the M1 console a few years ago but never previously had the opportunity to use it, worked with Alexey Zhuravlev, Lighting Designer, Euroshow Rental Company, to program the Moscow show.

“I thought the design was good, and I found the layout really easy to pick up. Everything seemed to be where you would expect it,” Coleman stated. “I only had a few hours to program before the show. I like that the desk was ready to go, and I didn’t have to spend ages setting up all my user preferences, window displays, etc. The same with creating effects –
certain other desks have made this process way too complicated and time-consuming. I found the desk perfect for making quick and easy effects.”

Coleman was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to learn how to operate the console and the logical programming. “Everything I asked from Zhuravlev seemed to be possible. I’ve had experiences with other desks, when asking the programmer something, only to be told, ‘I don’t think that’s possible on this desk.’”

The M1 surface has more than enough playbacks and buttons for Coleman. “Up until the Russian shows we had been touring our own desk. I had seen the M1 in a few of the venues as the house desk, but never got the chance to use it,” Coleman said. “Now I am more than happy to use the M1 in the future. I really enjoyed using the desk, and it certainly made for a better show than a couple of the others I could mention.”

Coleman also deployed the MAC Vipers in the rig partly because of the size. “The crew had to work at different grounds, from small to big, and because they were mainly placed on the floor and on the set, I didn’t want a big fixture but I still wanted something bright and powerful. That’s why MAC Viper Profile became the obvious choice.”

New York Yankees Install Front Porch Digital Solutions to Migrate, Manage, and Protect Team’s Valuable Media Assets

LAFAYETTE, Colo. — April 28, 2014 — Front Porch Digital, the global leader in cloud-based content storage management (CSM) solutions, today announced that the New York Yankees baseball franchise has installed a DIVArchive(R) CSM system to manage the team’s valuable media assets within its demanding production workflows. The team is also using a SAMMA(R) videotape migration system to migrate its legacy videotapes to digital files.

“The Yankees are one of America’s most beloved baseball teams, and in its more than 100-year history, the team has amassed an enormous archive of priceless visual materials. It’s an honor to be able to deliver a solution that not only preserves this venerable legacy but also increases the team’s production capabilities,” said Mike Knaisch, president and CEO of Front Porch Digital. “There is significant value in a team’s ability to leverage its media assets. This installation further demonstrates how Front Porch Digital solutions can scale to satisfy the most demanding workflows in the sports market — from broadcast and production at the league level, to monetizing assets for individual teams.”

The DIVArchive CSM system will serve as the heart of the Yankees’ editing and production environment, managing the team’s digital assets and making it possible to repurpose the content to enhance productions.

In order to be able to access the team’s many years of legacy content through DIVArchive, the Yankees installed a SAMMAsolo G4 HD single-stream migration solution, which supports a wide variety of videotape formats on input and then, in flight, simultaneously delivers multiple digital files including frame-accurate, lossless preservation-quality, broadcast-quality mezzanine, and proxy. The team also installed a SAMMAclean videotape cleaning unit to reduce defects from dirt and to identify other defects prior to tape migration. Leveraging SAMMA, the Yankees will migrate thousands of hours of videotape content to the digital domain.

Tyréns Deploys HARMAN’s Martin Professional Tripix 300™ LED Strips At Friends Arena, Sweden’s 65,000-seat Multi-Purpose Stadium

STOCKHOLM, Sweden — Friends Arena, the home of Sweden’s national football team, is Scandinavia’s largest indoor arena and can accommodate up to 65,000 people for concerts, sports matches, and other events. Located in the up-and-coming neighborhood of Arenastaden in Stockholm, the arena is considered the centerpiece of an area surrounded by new residential, shopping, and commercial buildings. Tyréns, one of Sweden’s leading urban planning consultancies, was brought in to develop a lighting plan for the various areas around the arena, including the surrounding streets, bus terminals, ramps, roundabouts, squares, lifts, and stairs. The company installed a range of colored lighting including HARMAN’s Martin Professional Tripix 300™ LED strips to create different effects and visual attraction.

Faced with strict budget constraints and the need for a retrofitted solution, Tyréns had to develop a creative plan to ensure the lighting fixtures were not overtly visible. In addition, the design called for low power consumption combined with high output to ensure and maintain visibility when football matches or other night events were to take place in the Friends Arena. Tyréns solved this by installing double fixtures so half can be turned off on normal days and then activated for maximum impact when the arena is full.

As part of Tyrens solution, colored lighting has been installed in the area around the arena. Below the ramps leading up to the arena, fixtures with color filters cover the pillars with narrow beams and work as a complement to the street lights. The lift towers are also covered with light from Martin’s Tripix fixtures in different colors to create obvious meeting points for event attendees.

“Because Martin’s Tripix fixtures are calibrated the color of the lift towers stand pure and consistent,” explained Frida Almqvist, Lighting Designer, Tyréns. “The fixtures are easy to maintain because of their streamlined design, and the quality is excellent.”

Commenting on the collaboration with Martin Professional, Almqvist said, “The Martin team is eager to help out with all aspects of the installation. For example, choosing the right solution for lighting control, which was a great help.”

Martin Professional and Tyréns also have several other upcoming projects. In Åkersberga, Sweden nine Martin Tripix 300 have been installed in a subway as part of a bigger project to light dark and unsafe areas of Åkersberga. Another upcoming project is lighting for a unique fountain for the Municipality of Malmö.

Trivium, The ME, And New Yamaha QL: A “Three-Way Logical” Combination

BUENA PARK, Calif.—“Trivium” is an American heavy metal band from Orlando, Florida that formed in 2000, and since signing with Roadrunner Records in 2004, has released six studio albums and eighteen singles. Selling over one million albums worldwide and following the release of their sixth album, the band is out on tour in support of Vengeance Falls.

After speaking with Clair Bros. (Littiz, PA) who is responsible for audio production for the tour about different console options, Trivium’s monitor engineer, Mike Babcock, chose the new Yamaha QL5 Digital Audio Console for monitor mixing. Clair is also providing a FOH control package, a full stage patch package, and snake system for Trivium. The band owns JH-Audio IEMs and Sennheiser transmitters. Clair is also providing a full monitor system and control package for “Volbeat” who headlines the tour.

“The Yamaha QL Console Series could not have been released at a more opportune time, states Clair Account Manager, Justin Weaver. We were in the middle of talking to tour manager Joey Brueckmann and Mike Babcock about their upcoming tour package, and the QL5 was the perfect fit for the tour. Trivium is jumping around between headline, support, and festival shows, so having a reliable, compact console in monitor world was a must since real estate on stage is at a premium.”

After speaking with Doug Staab at Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems, he assured Clair Bros. that Yamaha could have the QL5 QC’d and shipped to them before their shop load-out date. “Not only did they deliver on time, but our console department also had time to play with the console and was quite impressed with the design and feel of the QL, says Weaver. We look forward to deploying this desk on many more tours in the future that require a dependable, small-footprint mixing console.”

Initially, Trivium chose a Yamaha CL1 for the tour mainly because Brueckmann was finding that all of their fly dates had Yamaha PM5Ds for monitors, and we wanted to stay within the Yamaha family for consistency yet keep a small footprint for ease of everything,” states Babcock. The fact that the new QL5 was available was a huge bonus, mainly for the onboard preamps and not needing an additional Rio rack. I’ve never been one to shy away from new gear, especially from Yamaha.”

Babcock said since the main goal for a monitor console was a small footprint and Trivium is the main support act on the Volbeat tour, a quick load out was important. “Having a file system that is compatible with all Yamaha consoles is a big plus. The file conversion utility worked great with our first fly date festival using a Yamaha PM5D.” Babcock said that on that fly date with a converted QL5 show file for PM5D externally clocked at 96 there was no noticeable audio quality difference after gain structure was reset. “I would consider the QL5 to be PM5D quality (or better) in an Yamaha LS9 size. Great for club tours, support tours, and anywhere a small footprint is needed. Keeping client demands for high quality audio is the main goal, and the addition of the Premium Rack plug-ins is greatly appreciated and adds that little special sauce we all love. There are times where I really need dynamic EQ, and that option is great as well.”

“It all adds up to be the best monitor mixes anyone in the band has ever had mainly due to having the QL5 tools required to offset various venue conditions at the tip of my fingers.”
