FC Bayern Basketball Relies on Advanced Access Control System from Riedel/DECA and Ticketmaster

WUPPERTAL, Germany — Jan. 20, 2015 — Riedel/DECA Card Engineering has completed the installation of new ticket-scanning electronics at Munich’s Audi Dome, home to current German champion FC Bayern Basketball. Working in partnership with Ticketmaster, Riedel/DECA implemented an access control system that simplifies and speeds guest entry into the arena. The innovative concept offers not only fan security but also efficient visitor management for the club. Within just 90 days, the company integrated Ticketmaster technology into scanning terminals that were delivered and installed in time for the start of the basketball season.

“We have observed the market for a long time and have opted for the well-known quality of Riedel/DECA and Ticketmaster. In a remarkably short time frame, they provided us with a robust, cleverly integrated solution featuring the latest in access control technology,” said Benedikt Peine, head of ticketing and merchandising at FC Bayern München Basketball GmbH. “The terminals themselves have a fresh, modern, and customized design combining new innovations such as mobile ticketing and fast barcode recognition, and the minimal cabling needed to support them made installation both convenient and cost-effective. The speed of the installation and the efficiency of the ticket-scanning systems allowed us to start the new basketball season with a more secure entry system that has eliminated lines and streamlined entry for fans.”

In this joint project with Ticketmaster, Riedel/DECA quickly provided ticket-scanning terminals that ensure optimum security, validating tickets with bright LED indicators that prevent ticket misuse or counterfeiting, and increasing the rate at which guests can enter the arena. The clean cylindrical design of each terminal also affords plenty of space for branding. The installed solution supports guest management for more than 6,000 attendees per event. “It was essential for FC Bayern to get a complete solution”, said Carsten Kerner, COO at Ticketmaster GmbH, who, as general manager of ALBA Berlin for many years, understands the requirements of professional basketball very well. “This is a collaboration of two partners who are leaders in their industries. We’ve already worked successfully with Riedel/DECA at the European Song Contest in Baku and know, that with their know-how and reliability, they are the ideal partner for this challenging project.”

Unlike the former system, which had to be set up manually, the new scan modules automatically recognize the date and event enabling effective and cost-efficient processing. The barcode reader integrated in the terminals can recognize and screen contactless mobile, print@home, and standard tickets as well as season tickets.

“Riedel/DECA has long provided access management systems for premier sports and entertainment facilities, so the company was uniquely prepared to meet the tight delivery timeline for the Audi Dome installation,” said Rainer Kluth, managing director at DECA Card Engineering GmbH. “Going forward, FC Bayern Basketball and its fans will benefit from the most modern access control system available today.”

Calibre releases NEW LEDView325DS Digital Signage LED Videowall Scaler

LEDView325DS Angled

Calibre announces the release of its latest model in the highly successful LEDView range of LED videowall optimised image scalers.

LEDView325DS is designed specifically for cost conscious digital signage projects where quality is required but without breaking the bank.

Digital signage is a market often ignored when it comes to high quality scaling with many clients relying on software based solutions from a PC. This unfortunately causes difficulty creating and showing client content together with severe image quality issues, both of which lead to unhappy clients.

LEDView325DS is a cost effective yet high quality image scaler which provides Calibre’s market-leading pixel-accurate per-edge image re-sizing algorithm which allows each edge of the picture content to be independently dragged to the correct position on the LED videowall.

There is also per input colour calibration capability to ensure client content looks how the client wants with control of RGB gains and blacks as well as saturation and hue even on digital computer-originated content. These are the kinds of functions typically found on premium live events models, which are now available without the cost associated with a live events scaler.

LEDView325DS gives outstanding image quality with fast simple set-up of picture size, colour calibration and network-based back-up and restore of settings for fast disaster recovery. Control and configuration is by internet browser, using the inbuilt webserver so when connected to a suitable network remote control and status monitoring is also possible.

Calibre UK will exhibit on stand 4U64 at ISE 2015 taking place from 10-12 February 2015 at the Amsterdam RAI.

About Calibre
Multi-award winning British company, Calibre has over the past 27 years achieved world recognition providing image scaling and processing technologies for use in broadcast/television, digital cinema, large venue projection, LED videowalls and surgical medical applications.

HARMAN’s Martin Professional M6 Lighting Console Road Test with Daniel Sørensen on Tour with Silya & The Sailors

SiLyA Sailors stageOSLO, Norway — On site at a Norwegian rental company in autumn 2014, Lighting Designer Daniel Sørensen was introduced to HARMAN’s Martin Professional’s Espen Bechmann (Key Account Manager, Norway), who offered him the chance to test Martin’s M6 lighting console. Sørensen jumped at the chance, immediately fell in love with the M6 and brought his newfound love on tour with him and Silya & The Sailors.

Norwegian artist Silje Haugum Nymoen, a.k.a. Silya, was known back in the day for her feature appearances with pop group Multicyde. She moved to New York and did a few solo projects under the artist name SiLyA and wrote songs for other artists. In the autumn of 2013 she had a comeback in her native Norway when she won the Norwegian version of Star Fight (Stjernekamp) and earned the title ‘Norway’s Ultimate Entertainer.’ In the wake of this victory, Silya wanted to do a show in Oslo, Norway with her band, The Rapscallions, and called in Daniel Sørensen to be in charge of scenography and lighting. What was supposed to be a couple of shows turned into three tours in 2014, and band members from Silya’s American band, The Sailors, were flown in to join the most recent tour.

Sørensen works freelance as a Lighting Designer and Tour Manager for several acts within the pop, rock and electro genres. While studying fashion design in Bournemouth, UK he was offered a part-time position as Production Manager at a student venue where he got to operate the lights for different shows. Upon his return to Norway he was offered a position at Rockefeller Music hall while also working at setting up his own fashion business. He was quickly offered the chance to tour with a band and has been busy touring and designing ever since.

Sørensen likes to work very closely with each artist to include his or her thoughts and ideas in his designs. He tries to capture the artist as he sees him or her. “Silya is so multi-faceted—her music blends the best of modern pop, soul, rock and cabaret,” said Sørensen. “She is a true entertainer, a master at captivating audiences, and she’s the most confident artist I’ve ever worked with. All this I try to take into the equation.”

Because of his background in design, Sørensen is often involved with the entire visual process in connection with concerts and tours, including scenography, costumes, lighting and even PR. He tries to incorporate elements from stage design into album covers and PR material and vice versa, to create a coherent image for the artist.

“’Silya and her band have a fascination with everything related to marine life – hence the band name – and they wanted to create a set to resemble something in between a sailors’ club and a cabaret nightclub,” said Sørensen. “So I included marine elements in the stage design, costumes and lighting design.”

As part of his design process, Sørensen always creates mood boards for the artist with pictures and thoughts. This usually goes over very well with artists as it then becomes easy to relate to Sørensen’s ideas. He recently started using Pinterest to create boards with various inspirational material such as fashion, lighting, films, textures etc. and then uses these to recreate specific atmospheres in his designs.

After getting up close and personal with the M6 console on the tour, Sørensen feels the M6 is a strong competitor to the other desks on the market. “I found the M6 is one of the most intuitive and easy to learn desks I’ve laid my hands on,” said Sørensen. “It has several features which makes it really versatile, and the user interface makes it quick and easy to customize according to your personal preferences. I would highly recommend it to anyone who needs a reliable console as a touring companion.”

A feature request from Sørensen for future versions of Martin consoles would be an option to rearrange playback banks in a specific order to match bands’ ever-changing set lists. “There are ways to work around this, but I’m hoping it will be as simple as “copy-paste” in the future,” said Sørensen.

Sørensen also used Martin’s M2GO portable controller when the crew was required to fly to venues on the tour. “Because of its compact design and low weight, you can take the M2GO onboard flights in carry-on luggage,” said Sørensen. “You are quickly up and running as you can easily load shows from the M6 via an external touchscreen. Being a big fan of the M6, I would wish for future versions to include M6-like faders.”

“At Martin Professional we’re committed to delivering innovative consoles developed on the basis of market demands and feedback,” said Paul Pelletier, Product Manager for Controllers, Martin Professional. “Letting our customers field test our consoles provides us with valuable feedback from the users in real-life applications and all this information is accumulated and used for future product development.”

Now keen to take on other Martin products, Sørensen will soon be joined on tour by the MAC Quantum Wash and the MAC Viper AirFX and will also experiment with VC-Dots.

Sachtler launches Premium Bags range

(Eching, Germany) – Sachtler, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec group company, has announced the launch of its new range of Premium Bags, in line with the phase out of the group’s Petrol Bags brand.

The new Sachtler Premium Bags will see 37 of the 47 existing bags transition over to the brand to complement Sachtler’s wider product range. The product line will enhance the tradition of creating the ultimate protection in the premium video bag market place for professional gear, with the reassurance of the exceptional quality associated with the Sachtler brand.

SAC_Bags_Range 600
James Wilson, product manager, Sachtler Bags says: “We have simplified the product range to ensure it meets all of the key needs of the industry – whether it is for the camera, lighting, audio or camera support equipment. The new Sachtler Video Bags will take the DNA of Petrol Bags and combine it with those attributes that have become synonymous with the Sachtler brand, fast, high quality and robust durability.

“There will be very few changes to the bags themselves, reflecting the quality of the existing products. The design, features and functions remain the same and any changes will be minor, and mainly cosmetic, to incorporate the Sachtler logo, a new interior design and other minor enhancements such as improved zippers and comfort fit straps.”

The 37 key products that form the new range will include carrying solutions of premium shoulder, backpack and trolley bags for video, film and broadcast applications. The products will all be manufactured and produced by the existing independent supplier – who has had a strong working relationship with the Vitec Group brand for the past 15 years.

Wilson continues: “Sachtler’s renowned camera support products are consistently delivering the ultimate performance for operators around the globe, from our award-winning artemis stabiliser systems, to our innovative tripods and the recently released Ace Accessories range. Regardless of the application, users rely on our products to offer the ultimate in quality and reliability, and that ethos will be carried through to the new range of Sachtler Premium Bags.”

The new comprehensive range of Sachtler Premium Bags is available via Sachtler and Vitec Videocom’s extensive distribution network.

The Nano series will include four level options, each of which utilizes patented Wireworld technology to provide dramatic sonic benefits.

“In-ear monitors have become an essential tool for live performances,” comments Wireworld president and founder David Salz. “The increased clarity and expressive dynamics of the Nano cables bring IEM systems to a new level of performance that artists can rely on.”

NanoAll four Nano cables employ Wireworld’s patented DNA Helix® design with eight signal conductors—four times as many as in standard cables—to channel the electromagnetic signal energy more efficiently, providing greater detail and dynamics. They also utilize Wireworld’s proprietary Composilex® 2 insulation which minimizes triboelectric noise for surprisingly lifelike tone quality.

With molded plugs and oxygen-free copper conductors, the Pulse™ brings the advantages of this leading edge cable design down to popular pricing at $40 (1.5m). The Nano-Eclipse™ has Ohno Continuous Cast® (OCC) copper conductors and sells for $160 (1.5m). The Nano-Silver Eclipse™ features OCC® silver-clad copper conductors at $220 (1.5m). And featuring carbon-fiber plugs and OCC® solid-silver conductors for uncompromised performance, the Nano-Platinum Eclipse™ has a suggested retail price of $500 (1.5m).

The Nano cables are available with mini jacks and the most popular headphone terminals in a variety of standard and custom lengths.

Wireworld Pro Audio will be exhibiting and demonstrating Nano and their entire line of Pro Audio Cables during NAMM 2015, in Hall A, Booth 6773. Please visit to learn why industry expert Bobby Owsinski said, “I was a major skeptic that high-end cables could offer any sonic improvement, but Wireworld changed my mind in a big way.”
