Behan’s Pub Raises The Bar With Martin Audio

Bronx, NY––Located on Katonah Avenue that runs through the heart of Woodlawn’s Irish section, Behan’s Public House is a popular stopover in the neighborhood.

During the day, older patrons stop by for drinks and soccer watching before Behan’s turns into a nighttime dance club with DJs that appeals to a much younger crowd with music that can he heard a block away.

Following a fire this summer, the pub was totally renovated with a new bar, furnishings, millwork and a Martin Audio loudspeaker system installed by New York City’s Foundation Audio.

Asked why he chose Martin Audio, Foundation owner Justin Shafran said, “When considering the speaker system for Behan’s Pub, I wanted to use a product that would ensure the customer would be extremely happy in terms of performance and value.

“Because the venue functions as a local bar and nightclub,” Justin continued, “I had to spec a system with exceptional clarity for the bar that could also provide the SPLs and low end required for dance music. This project was the first time we used Martin Audio. The other speaker brands I had been using were OK, but always sounded a bit muffled. I had heard good things about Martin Audio so I figured I would give them a try.

“We installed eight Martin Audio AQ28’s and four AQ212 subs at strategic locations throughout Behan’s,” adds Shafran. “The sound is so clear and the system has the power we needed while the sound remains undistorted and clean even at the upper limits of the system when it’s used for the nightclub.

“Finally, I was very happy with the response of Martin Audio because this project was very fast track from the start. Knowing a company stands behind their product is very important for me and they really went the extra mile to ensure we would meet our deadline. I’m now specifying Martin Audio on several new projects.”

CTS Audio Shows Faith in HARMAN’s JBL Professional VTX Line Arrays at National Catholic Youth Conference

NORTHRIDGE, California – Continuing a series of high-profile events using HARMAN’s JBL VTX line arrays and Crown I-Tech HD amplifiers, CTS Audio provided a HARMAN Professional audio system for the National Catholic Youth Conference at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Sponsored by the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry, the National Catholic Youth Conference featured a variety of spoken-word, live music and dramatic performances. Given the event’s diverse programming, CTS Audio—which has supplied the sound reinforcement for the bi-annual National Catholic Youth Conference for more than 15 years—needed an audio system that would accommodate this variety in a large stadium environment. Working with production company Declan Weir Productions, CTS Audio designed and deployed a HARMAN audio system featuring JBL Professional VTX line arrays powered by Crown I-Tech HD amplifiers.

The production was configured in the round, with the main PA system including a total of 90 JBL VTX V25 fullsize line array elements (in six columns of 15 each), with 24 S28 subwoofers flown in the center of the main PA loudspeakers in a cardioid setup. Eight VRX932 Constant Curvature loudspeakers provided additional fill. At each end of the stadium, 24 JBL VERTEC® VT4888 midsize line array elements served as delay loudspeakers. Crown I-Tech HD 12000 amplifiers powered the system.

According to Mike Taylor, Vice President of CTS Audio, the main challenges of the event included proper time-alignment of the loudspeakers. “We were faced with a complex task of achieving direct sound rather than reflections in such a large stadium,” said Mike Taylor, Vice President of CTS Audio. “And with the design, coming up with a subwoofer arrangement that was even across the room was also a challenge.”

In addition, CTS Audio configured and monitored the audio system with JBL HiQnet Performance Manager™.

“[JBL’s Associate Director, Tour Sound] Paul Bauman and [HARMAN Professional’s Application Engineer, Live Sound and Rental for North America] Raul Gonzalez helped us develop a solution utilizing Performance Manager,” Taylor noted. “This enabled us to model and program every loudspeaker in the system before even hanging a single box.”

Although CTS Audio has used VTX frequently since adding the loudspeakers to its inventory, this was the first time CTS supplied VTX for the National Catholic Youth Conference. “The event was a huge success,” Taylor said. “Two years ago we used VERTEC and this was an improvement on an already good-sounding system. VTX is a whole different animal—the enclosures and the high-frequency range are amazing.”

OAKMONT BAPTIST SELECTS NEW LOUDSPEAKER SYSTEM FROM WORXAUDIO TECHNOLOGIES

**** Photo: Oakmont Baptist Church sanctuary ****

Iconyx Brings a New Chapter to Historic Manhattan Church

New York, NY – January, 2014… The brick and brownstone building that is home to New York’s Seventh Day Adventist Church has stood on this tree-lined street in Greenwich Village since 1882. Today, this 1,000-seat historic landmark retains much of its original architecture and interior design, including grand Tiffany style stained-glass windows, smoothly aged, dark wooden pews, and high, vaulted ceilings. A magnificent organ rises high above the stage, and a balcony partially extends over the large, open auditorium.

Like many of the era’s grand old churches, the acoustics can be magnificent for organ and choir, but the sermons were battling the architecture’s myriad reflective surfaces. Areas under and in the balcony suffered from particularly poor intelligibility, and coverage was inconsistent throughout the room. The

steep rake of the pew seating, covering almost one vertical story from the entry doors to the stage, only exacerbated the problem. The Church’s previous portable system did little to improve intelligibility, and even less for aesthetics.

“The Renkus-Heinz Iconyx was really the best choice for this room,” explains Geraldo Watson, President and CEO of BUSA AV Technology & Construction in Brooklyn, NY, the system contractor. A pair of Renkus-Heinz IC24-R-II digitally steerable column arrays are mounted left and right of the stage. “It’s a bit of a challenging room because of the shape, and all the reflective surfaces.”

“Two IC-24 columns cover the whole room. We didn’t need any fills or additional speakers,” says Richard Trombitas of Northport, NY-based Cardone, Solomon & Associates. “In addition to providing consistent coverage in the primary seating areas, Iconyx enabled us to selectively steer the sound into the areas where it was needed, while minimizing reflections from the walls and windows. With the IC-24s we were able to create a nice, narrow beam to cover the balcony and another to cover the area below it. This approach provided a comprehensive solution for this customer, utilizing only two boxes.”

Not surprisingly, aesthetics were an important consideration in this landmark building. The low profile design of the Iconyx meant they could be mounted flat against two large wooden columns, painted to match the décor, and blend almost invisibly with the architecture.

The stage area is equipped with four Renkus-Heinz TRX82/12  dual eight inch 120 X 60 degree loudspeakers for monitoring,  powered by a single Powersoft M50 amplifier. “The TRX82 is a great option for stage monitors,” says Trombitas. “Its low profile, controlled mid-bass directivity and 120 X 60 degree pattern are optimal for this, as well as many other HOW and performing arts applications”

Watson reports the Church staff and congregation have been exceptionally pleased. “When they heard the sound coming from the new system, they were amazed at the clarity. They just love it.”

HPA Tech Retreat Celebrates 20 Years of Inquiry and Illumination

Industry Thought Leaders and Technology Mavens Head Back to Palm Springs for Thoughtful Exploration of an Industry in Transition

(Los Angeles, CA) For the past twenty years, the Hollywood Post Alliance(r) (HPA) Tech Retreat(r) has gathered a veritable who’s who in engineering, technology, creativity, and strategic business together for a structured yet informal meeting of the minds; where top industry leaders engaged in all aspects of production, distribution, post production, film, television, web and related endeavors, gather in an environment conducive to the exchange of knowledge and information. This year’s 20th Anniversary confab promises all of that and more from February 17-21, 2014 at the Hyatt Regency in Indian Wells near Palm Springs, CA.

The Tech Retreat offers attendees the chance to explore the opportunities and the complexities facing an industry in transition, and to investigate new solutions and technologies that impact its many constituents.

The HPA Tech Retreat offers lively conference sessions, networking events and technology demonstrations to an engaged audience of participants and panelists that hail from a pool of the top technical, creative, business and hands-on experts. Topics will take the Tech Retreat audience from the nitty gritty to the very precipice.

For a full schedule, visit http://bit.ly/1cwt7B2. On Monday, February 17th, the event opens for early registration and a pre-Retreat course titled Physics, Psychophysics, and Vision for Advanced Motion Imaging from Charles Poynton and John Watkinson. Tuesday launches the HPA Tech Retreat, with the HPA Supersession: The New Normal is Anything But, focusing on the impact of new distribution platforms in production and post. Wednesday through Friday mornings feature breakfast roundtables where any industry relevant topic goes. The HPA Demo Room opens on Tuesday with demos and cocktails and is a hotbed of new products and technologies that feature curated and expert-demos which illustrate the latest developments. Wednesday focuses on the consumer experience and impact, and Thursday production and post. The Tech Retreat concludes Friday morning, with highlights and an emphasis on engineering. The entire event features many opportunities for one-on-one discussion with industry innovators, technology experts, business executives and other top professionals.

Mark Schubin, Multiple-Emmy-award-winning SMPTE Fellow has been working in television since 1967, writing about it since 1972, and chairing the HPA Tech Retreat program since 1997, commented on the engaging presentations set for next month. “We are dealing with fundamental changes in the very nature of our industry, from changing methodologies – broadcast, cable, DVD, DVR, for example- to the previously unthinkable, such as giving fans in a stadium access to their own instant replays, letting social media shape programming, and all of those things that lay beyond. This is a challenging but expansive time. For example, at the Tech Retreat, we’ll feature a presentation that may appear to be purely tech-focused and narrow (i.e., new display connections) but it will show how the consumer technology is powerfully driving the professional world. As always, we’ll be digging into important topics that are thought provoking, but are also important in terms of our businesses and careers, including two of the most critical issues in our industry: the change from video-specific technology to commodity information technology, and the question of what comes next on the screen, and what delivers the biggest bang for the buck?” Schubin notes, “Maybe it’s something a lot simpler than “4K.” He concludes, “And, we’re spending a day with a provocative dive into one of the most important topics there is – color.”

Leon Silverman President of the HPA noted, “This year is a significant milestone for the HPA Tech Retreat as we look back over the incredible effect that technology has had on our industry over the past 20 years. As the world of film and television became increasingly impacted by computer and digital technologies, the HPA Tech Retreat served as an important common ground for our industry to experience and drive transformative change together. Now more than ever, the Tech Retreat serves as an important bridge between so many of the rapidly changing aspects of our industry. As I do every year, I look forward to spending time with the most interesting people I know, and ones I hope to know, at the HPA Tech Retreat.”

Early bird registration pricing will end on January 10 and the Tech Retreat demo room still has a few remaining spaces left. For full information and registration visit www.hpaonline.com or call the HPA office at (213) 614-0860 or email Eileen Kramer – ekramer@hpaonline.com.

DANLEY JERICHO HORNS THROW 600 FEET AT BOISE STATE UNIVERSITY

BOISE, IDAHO – JANUARY 2014: Boise State University is justifiably proud of its Broncos football team, which has only lost four games at home since 1999. In ninety-one other contests, the visitors left Bronco Stadium’s famously blue field in defeat. As the program gained regional and national notoriety, Bronco Stadium grew from 14,500 seats to its current 36,000, but the stadium’s original sound reinforcement system failed to grow with it. When a local beef producer promised money to update the stadium’s similarly outdated scoreboard, the university scrambled to match money so that it could leap forward with a cutting-edge video board and sound reinforcement system. Although the timing was far from ideal, local A/V integration firm Production Services International complemented the scoreboard expertise of Daktronics (Brookings, South Dakota) by designing, installing, and commissioning the new sound reinforcement system in just six short weeks. Danley Sound Labs delivered its high-SPL, high-fidelity, USA-built Jericho Horn loudspeakers, BC subwoofers, and OS-80 weatherproof loudspeakers to meet that tight deadline, and the results are, by all accounts, fantastic.

“The original system was designed for a much smaller stadium, and it was pretty much designed for speech only,” explained Brian Kohagen, the sales and audio engineer with PSI who designed the new sound reinforcement system and oversaw its installation and commissioning. “The Boise State University marketing department was forever asking for a high-energy, full-range sound system that could really pump up the crowd.” Kohagen drew up his original value-engineered design with a different loudspeaker manufacturer, but the 120-day timeline placed some serious challenges in the way. “It all came together so fast, it was hard to find any manufacturer that could deliver,” he said. “I had heard a Danley system at Brigham Young University, so I knew that Danley’s growing reputation for high-SPL, high-fidelity stadium sound systems was well-founded. I spoke with [Danley President] Mike [Hedden], and he assured me that their US-based manufacturing plant could deliver.” And they did.

He continued, “The real challenge at Bronco Stadium is throwing sound from the scoreboard clear across the field and past the other end zone to the opposite seating two-hundred yards away. There is no place for a real distributed system to exist, as there is no roof system at Bronco Stadium. It has to be an end fired single source.” Four Danley J3-64 Jericho Horns, two on each side of the new Daktronics scoreboard, provide the lion’s share of the coverage. Their exceptional pattern control keeps the sonic energy on the fans and prevents it from spilling outside of the stadium – an important achievement given neighbors’ frequent complaints about the old system’s pattern-free leakage. Four Danley OS-80 weatherproof Synergy Horn loudspeakers provide fill for the seating area directly below and in front of the new scoreboard where the Jericho Horns overshoot. “We easily met all of our coverage and SPL requirements,” said Kohagen. “All of the Danley full-range boxes have tremendous clarity, and we were fortunate not to have to rig any fly system. The catwalk in front of the scoreboard gave us perfect aim. All we had to do was make some adjustments left and right and then lock them in place.”

For low end, Hedden recommended a pair of Danley’s new BC-415 subwoofers, which are designed to provide exceptional bass response and exceptional directivity, especially when two units are coupled. Kohagen used them that way, placing both subwoofers just above a pair of the J3-64s. “Wow, does that bottom end throw!” exclaimed Kohagen. “It’s amazing! I can sit two-hundred yards away on the stands behind the opposite end zone, and the bass still shakes the structure. It’s completely full range and sounds fantastic. Everybody that we’ve talked to has been extremely happy with it.”

Kohagen was pleased with his first-time experience working with the people at Danley Sound Labs. “Mike [Hedden] helped me out with the preliminary design,” he said. “In the weeks running up to the installation, I was completely in the loop regarding the manufacturing and shipping schedules. When it came time to commission the system, [Danley Application Engineer] Chad [Edwardson] flew out to help me voice the system. He was extremely knowledgeable and we finished the job in just one day. There were a few challenges as well, and Danley was right on top of them. One of the subwoofer drivers had glue that had not set properly, which I discovered during testing at the shop. I was on the phone with [Danley Chief Engineer] Ivan [Beaver] Sunday before the first game, and we had the replacement on Tuesday.

The most memorable moment was during the system commissioning, when we powered up the subwoofers to see what they could do. “The video board installers had been working all day and prevented a full system test up to this point, so we hadn’t heard the system at full volume,” relates Kohagen, “At 4pm we got the all clear that they were off the structure, and we lit up the low end. About sixty seconds later my phone was ringing, the head football coach was asking how long this was going to take. It turns out, his office is directly below the scoreboard, and the low end coming off the BC 415s was shaking the wall and items on his shelf. One picture actually fell off the wall.” At that point, I knew we had a kickin’ system in place, and the response from the football fans have been nothing but positive.

HARMAN’s JBL 3 Series Studio Monitors and AKG Microphones Improve Greater Media NJ’s Statewide Broadcasts

NORTHRIDGE, California – Finalizing a station-wide renovation, Greater Media, Inc.’s New Jersey-market facility WRAT-FM (The RAT) recently installed two pairs of HARMAN’s JBL LSR studio monitors. With a pair of LSR305 studio monitors in a small production room and LSR308 studio monitors in the main production room, the creative department now has a more accurate reference for the commercials, music programs, and promotional announcements they produce. Regional manufacturer’s representative Sigmet Corporation provided the JBL equipment.

“We had what I like to call a ‘snowflake collection’ in our studios in that building – no two pairs of anything were the same,” stated Keith Smeal, Director of Technical Operations, Greater Media New Jersey. “We’re currently working on getting every station on the same platform and the initial installation of the LSR’s has been a very successful starting point. The LSR monitors are a major improvement from our legacy equipment. They produce a nice, crisp and clear high end and remarkably full bottom.”

Leveraging new technology developed for JBL’s flagship M2 Master Reference Monitor, the 3 Series studio monitors feature JBL’s patent-pending Image Control Waveguide, which enables the listener to hear greater depth and ambience in recordings.

An additional pair of LSR305’s is installed in the home studio of the program manager of WJRZ, New Jersey’s Greatest Hits-another Greater Media New Jersey station.

Sigmet also delivered three pairs of JBL Control 5 loudspeakers for portable use during radio station-sponsored events. The loudspeakers’ rugged construction and high-performance capabilities provide a clear sound for event participants, whether Greater Media sets up its portable broadcast station on a boardwalk or in a parking lot for a store opening.

During the renovation, Smeal demoed numerous AKG microphones to help improve the sound of the station. A set of microphones provided by Sigmet consisting of C414s, C214s, 4500 BCs, C3000s and a D12 VR was delivered to the broadcast facility. According to Smeal, the AKG microphones were a hit at the station—a nice in-between solution for the DJs while the renovation continues. “We want to ensure we’re sending out the best sound, whether our listeners are in the car or in front of a hi-fi system,” he said

Smeal has plans to use 60 AKG C414s in his studios for a full microphone upgrade in 2014.

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.
