BlackTrax delivers realtime tracking at the d3 Technologies booth 1275 at LDI 2014, 20-23 November 2014, Las Vegas Convention Center, NV

Realtime motion tracking solution specialists, CAST BlackTrax will provide core motion tracking to support d3 Technologies booth at LDI 2014. In addition, BlackTrax expert staff will be present on the d3 booth to answer any questions in relation to tracking. The d3 booth is aimed at enabling creative designers and entertainment production professionals to see its latest hardware and to get a glimpse of what the future of live projection has in store.

Delivering targets on time

Whilst the exact nature of the d3 demonstration is a closely guarded secret until the show, the booth is designed to give projection designers the ultimate freedom to move. BlackTrax will be integrated with d3’s upcoming Dynamic Blend feature to track several objects.

With the benefits of fast, consistent and precise image tracking quality and reliability, BlackTrax delivers realtime tracking data to downstream technologies such as audio, lighting, multimedia and video cameras. At the same time, it can track performers, props, a moving video wall or projection display canvas.

Excited about the latest step in the technical collaboration between the two companies, Gil Densham, President at CAST BlackTrax said: “We have worked alongside d3 on a number of the world’s highest-profile, cutting-edge projects such as Marvel Universe LIVE! and a Honda Dealer Meeting, during 2014. We’re delighted to provide our BlackTrax solution to the d3 booth, helping to show its new media servers at their best.”

Ash Nehru, Software Director at d3 Technologies added: “We’re always looking for ways to advance the state of the art, and the ability to easily project content onto moving objects is clearly the next step. We’re conscious that we’re discovering a whole new design vocabulary – we’re excited to put this in front of creative designers at LDI, and see what they will do with it. BlackTrax has played an integral role in helping us to deliver that vision consistently in the high-pressure live environment.”

CLEAR-COM BRINGS NEW COMMUNICATIONS, CONNECTIVITY AND TRANSPORT SOLUTIONS TO LDI 2014

At the upcoming LDI 2014 exhibition in Las Vegas, Clear-Com® will demonstrate its continued commitment in linking communication groups together with its latest intercom, signal transport and intercom connectivity (ICON) solutions. These new solutions can save users time and money, while making their workflows much more efficient.

Clear-Com will present the new LQ™ Series, a new family of ICON devices for linking intercom and audio systems over IP networks. Visitors will also see the new FreeSpeak II™ wireless intercom system, a DECT-based offering that operates in the license-free band 1.92 to 1.93 GHz. In addition, we will be showing ProGrid™, the synchronous, optical fiber transport solution for audio, intercom, video, and data.

As a low audio latency communication link, LQ Series can be used for natural intercom conversation, networked music performances and for audio signals that are transported between different facilities. Based on Clear-Com’s patented I.V.Core® technology, the compact LQ throw-down devices enable connections of 2-wire partyline with call signaling and 4-wire audio over LAN, WAN or Internet IP infrastructures. LQ Series has a 2-wire (LQ-2W2) or 4-wire (LQ-4W2) option. The LQ-2W2 is both Clear-Com and RTS TW compatible. A maximum of six LQ IP interfaces can be linked together in any 2- or 4-wire combination.

The recent release of FreeSpeak II™ places it as the preferred DECT-based, all-roaming wireless communication solution in the United States and Canada for live event, broadcast, sport production, industrial, military and government applications. Operating in the license-free 1.92 to 1.93 GHz band, FreeSpeak II has been demonstrating its advanced roaming capabilities across large-scale, multi-zone production areas.

The system supports up to 20 full-duplex wireless beltpacks and 10 antennas connected to one base station or fully integrated into the Clear-Com Eclipse HX digital matrix system. The base station has connections for two partylines and four 4-wires, including a dedicated SA output and program audio input. With the full-duplex 7kHz bandwidth, the digital ‘Clear-Com Sound’ reduces ear fatigue after extended usage and delivers clear intelligibility of every word said into the system.

Clear-Com will also highlight ProGrid™, the highly resilient and scalable platform for carrying, distributing, and routing high capacity of audio, intercom and video signals, as well as control data, across long distances without compromising its performance, speed, or quality. ProGrid is based on the open AES3 and AES10 (MADI) standards, providing fiber-based transport, routing and format conversion with full management and diagnostic capabilities using the Optocore® and SANE technologies.

“We are excited to confirm our commitment to the live event and live entertainment markets by showing off our latest innovations at LDI 2014,” said Michael Rucker, Director of Sales–North and South America at Clear-Com. “Clear-Com has been a part of this vibrant market since the beginning. We are pleased to show our latest wired and wireless intercom systems as well as our innovative connectivity and infrastructure solutions. Setting up, managing and using our communication and transport products is quicker and easier than ever before, which allows users to concentrate on providing the best performance possible.”

The complete line of Clear-Com’s new and enhanced products will be available for demonstration at LDI 2014 on booth 1752.

Emmy Award-Winning Studio Works Mouseless, Keyboardless with Yamaha NUAGE

Jereco Studios and Yamaha NUAGE

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Jereco Studios is located in Bozeman, Montana, a small town located outside of Yellowstone National Park, and home to a unique, dense film and music community. The four-time Emmy® award-winning, commercial sound recording studio offers sync-to-film ADR and voice-over recordings with remote link up via ISDN or SourceConnect. Jereco is equipped for 5.1 and 7.1 Digital Surround Sound, Dolby E, DTS, and many other formats. In addition, the studio provides a full line of quality live sound reinforcement services and equipment rental packages.

Jeremiah Slovarp, producer/engineer and President of Jereco Studios, has been working up until now on a Yamaha 02R96v2. In early 2013, he began searching for a new, modern work surface. “Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems had posted its first NUAGE photos and articles on their web site, and I knew this system was what I was looking for,” states Slovarp. I admit, I miss the old console, but am moving ahead with the new Yamaha NUAGE. The 02R96 still works after almost 14 years, which is a real testament to Yamaha’s design and build quality.”

“In the fall of 2013, the Club Cubase newsletter announced NUAGE would be on display with technical and sales team members from Yamaha present at Poll Sound in Salt Lake, Utah, Slovarp says. It was too late for me to book a flight, so I drove the seven hours from Bozeman to Salt Lake the night before so I could be the first one at Poll Sound the following morning. I was met on demo day by the Poll Sound staff and Yamaha’s Chris Hinson and Randy Weitzel. Because I was early that morning, I had the console to myself for a good two hours while Chris and the Poll Sound staff took turns showing me around and answering questions.”

JeremiahMixingNuage

Before he left Montana, Slovarp packed up a few projects to use as workflow samples on the demo NUAGE at Poll Sound. “I think this was a great experiment and gave me the opportunity to work on the console with my own work and workflow preferences. I was particularly impressed that Chris was taking notes on my hiccups and recommendations, and passed those notes on to the NUAGE development team, some of which have shown up in the latest software updates. The integration of my existing workflow into a new platform that felt so much like my natural workspace in Nuendo really was seamless. The deep integration and control of the DAW on the console is truly complete and unique.”

Slovarp has been using Nuendo 2 since 2002, keeping up with every revision and update. He said the most important thing he appreciates about NUAGE is that it has enabled him to put down the keyboard and mouse. “I feel like I can get back to mixing, pushing faders, turning knobs, and just working on a creative console. After an eight or ten hour day, my hands would be in pain from all the manual movements I had to make being dependent on mouse editing and clicking. With the advent of all the cool and amazing new digital DAW based mixing tools and equipment, I think the industry, in general, has regressed from the art of mixing and working with consoles and large format hardware. But with NUAGE, I appreciate the deliberate move Yamaha has made to enable engineers to get back to mixing and editing as an art form.”
