Yamaha CL5 Struts Its Stuff with Charbonneau on The Offspring Live Recording

BUENA PARK, Calif.— The Offspring is an American punk rock band from Orange County, California, formed in 1984. Recently, the band asked engineer Ian Charbonneau to record and mix an upcoming web release. The recording took place in Warsaw, Poland at the Orange Warsaw Festival held at Narodowy Stadium. Charbonneau has worked with the band for the past five years, recording and mixing live TV, Webcast or Radio broadcast they may do Internationally. His last name may sound familiar, as he is the son of LeMobile Remote Recording Studio owner, and mix engineer, Guy Charbonneau. The younger Charbonneau also works on LeMobile’s Le-Fly-Pak system that utilizes a Yamaha DM2000 digital audio console for live broadcast mixing.

“Doing live projects on the road is always a lot of fun and can be very challenging, not necessarily knowing which console and set up I will have to work with. It is always different. A big part of the challenge comes from the very little prepping time and often without any sound check, you just got to nail it”, states the younger Charbonneau. “In the last few years, I’ve expended my own business in consulting, recording and mixing for artists, managements and labels when doing live TV, webcast or broadcast appearances around the globe. It gives both artists and production teams great assurance that someone is looking out for them. As most know, when doing live projects, there’s only one chance of getting things right. I was excited when I found out for this particular project, I would have the opportunity to use the new Yamaha CL5 digital audio console.”

The Poland set up consisted of two consoles, the CL5 used as the main console and a Yamaha DM2000 for backup purposes, all recorded via Nuendo Live. “I chose to try out the new CL5 even though I’m very familiar with the DM2000. I was quite pleased with how easy it was to get around this console,” says Charbonneau. “Very simple and logical layout, I find some digital console today seem to have lost their logic with too many places to do the same things, busy layouts or too many menus and layers like trying to please everyone. It is often too easy to get lost or make mistakes. The CL5 seemed to have been very well thought out.

As for sound, Charbonneau said he was also happy with what he heard. “It was really responsive; I learned over the years working with our DM2000 and other digital consoles that you often have to exaggerate a little when EQing and compressing. The CL5 seemed more natural. I was also impressed on the integration of Nuendo Live; it worked flawlessly. The Dante networking and Rio rack did great. I would be curious to try a CL5 with Le Mobile’s Fly-Pak. Great job on the new console, Yamaha!”

Visual Surveillance Manufacturer IC Realtime Opens Doors for Integrators to Tap Many Vertical Markets via Verizon 4G LTE Network

Video Surveillance Products Leader IC Realtime Joins Verizon Partner Program

Joint national program opens doors for integrators to tap vertical markets by deploying
custom-tailored HD video surveillance systems transmitted via Verizon Wireless; represents great opportunities for integrators to create recurring monthly revenues

Pompano Beach, FL – May 1, 2013 – IC Realtime, a global leader in the design and manufacture of advanced visual surveillance solutions for residential, commercial, industrial, governmental and educational channels, today announced that it has joined the Verizon Partner program. The move is the first initiative by IC Realtime’s M2M (Machine-to-Machine) Advisors Group, a newly-formed division operating from within its Pompano Beach, Florida headquarters.

Under the program IC Realtime and Verizon Wireless Connected Technologies sales teams will work with qualified IC Realtime integration companies (classified by IC Realtime as its M2M Master Integrators) to develop and deploy custom-tailored HD video surveillance solutions via the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network.

According to IC Realtime’s M2M Advisor Group President Adam Cohen, the types of applications span residential, commercial and industrial to local, state and federal branches of government.

”The program helps integrators branch-out into emerging vertical markets such as remote autonomous solar-powered systems; video over cellular; cloud-based HD-video and data storage; remote M2M command and control, and internet and video redundancy,” says Cohen. “These powerful new offerings will allow them to sell services and build recurring monthly revenue streams previously deemed unobtainable or perhaps unforeseen.”

To help integrators seize the wide range of opportunities that exist, IC Realtime will aggregate talent from its consortium of integration companies, training them in Megapixel IP video over cellular networks, command and control over remote locations, autonomous solar systems, and wireless technology.

“Such a network of skilled connected technology experts can assist the business interests of manufacturers, service providers, integrators, and consumers of electronic physical security equipment,” adds Cohen. “We believe that our pool of M2M Master Integrators will be the catalyst for a global paradigm shift in how security is procured, installed and serviced.”

Useful for the venture will be Video iVAULT™, an M2M cloud-based platform that IC Realtime created to provide live video on demand, without the need for special software or complicated hardware solutions. This platform allows wireless cameras and recorders to send event video and alerts to the IC Realtime Cloud to be securely stored long-term via wireless networks. Additionally, this solution further reduces costs by limiting the amount of video storage devices needed to be deployed onsite.

IC Realtime has also created a failover option for its DVR / NVR systems solutions to monitor in real time, grant access, communicate, and secure environments via the Verizon network. This redundancy feature provides crucial backup when power and internet lines go down. According to Cohen, the failover option is yet another example of previously untapped revenue source for integrators.

For all IC Realtime media inquiries, please contact Paul Muto at 631.849.4301 or via email at paul@mutocomm.com.

Store and Charge makes it easy to deploy and support tablets and laptops, which means less hassle for teachers and more learning for students.”

Visual Unity Bring Video On Demand To Turkish Viewers

Leading multimedia solutions provider Visual Unity has helped Turkish company Calinos Entertainment to deliver a complete Video on Demand service.

Based in Istanbul, Calinos Entertainment was established in 1997 as a content distribution company supplying television and film programmes to service providers and channels. With Visual Unity’s expertise, the company has now expanded its operations to deliver a Video on Demand service directly to their subscribers on any screen or connected device.

Visual Unity provided Calinos Entertainment with the technology needed to deliver its new service. The technical infrastructure is based on Visual Unity’s award-winning vuMediaTM Over the Top (OTT) content solution that allows broadcasters to manage, monetize and monitor delivery of content to multiscreens.

Tomas Petru, CEO of Visual Unity, says: ““Visual Unity won this contract on the basis of our proven expertise in multiscreen integration. With over 20 years’ experience in architecting, building and technically supporting linear broadcast to multiscreen solutions we demonstrated to Calinos Entertainment our ability to successfully deliver VoD solutions similar to customers such as voyo.cz, cinema.cz and TopFun.”

Visual Unity’s vuMedia™ platform supports comprehensive VoD services and integrates with billing and CRM processes. For this project, Visual Unity provided a content management system with GUI and API access, DMR protection, software to play back and control video content on the web, analytics, delivery and support for mobile devices.

In addition, Visual Unity also helped the broadcaster to build a feature-rich VoD portal that contains thousands of films, dramas and popular television programmes. This Cloud-based service allows Calinos Entertainment to publish its content online, thus alleviating the need to build an expensive, in-house and resource-intensive media library.

“Monetization is not just about selling your content – it is about building business awareness and a communication strategy around your brand,” adds Gabriel Dusil, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Strategy at Visual Unity. “We are confident that by using our proven vuMedia™ technology Calinos Entertainment can now deliver a cutting-edge viewing experience to its audiences on any screen or connected device.”
