Spider Ranch Utilizes Vue Audiotechnik Al-4 System for Clint Eastwood at At&T Pebble Beach

Monterey, California, March 26, 2015 – The AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am has evolved into one of the most prestigious stops on the PGA Tour since singer Bing Crosby started it in 1937. This annual golf tournament played at Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course and the Monterey Peninsula Country Club Shore Course, features an all-star lineup of both pros and celebrities, making it as much fun for serious golfers as it is for autograph seekers.

Run almost entirely by volunteers, the famous golf tournament is one of the Monterey Peninsula’s largest fundraisers, doling out a whopping six million dollars to local non-profits and other youth-oriented charities each year. Clint Eastwood heads up a prestigious evening party honoring the volunteers and Spider Ranch Productions was chosen once again to provide full technical production. The 2,500 person event is held at the Monterey Conference Center in the 19,600 square foot Serra Ballroom that sports a production technology challenging 15-foot high ceiling.

Spider Ranch Productions (San Francisco) provided sound, lights and video. Audio featured the VUE Audiotechnik al-4 subcompact line array system hung in 3 clusters as delays, supporting the Spider’s main system, along with DiGiGo SD8 (FOH) and SD9 (MON) consoles, Shure wireless UHFR mics, and Shure PSM900 IEM’s.

The lineup of artists included Jake Owen, Kenny G, Ray Romano, Clay Walker, Joe Don Rooney, Gary Mule Deer, Michael Bolton, Colt Ford, Larry the Cable Guy, Huey Lewis, Charles Kelly, Bill Hopkins Band and of course Clint Eastwood as the main host.

The biggest challenge that faced the audio production was how to deal with the low 15-foot ceiling without obscuring sightlines and still provide perfect coverage and sound quality for the delays. Spider Ranch’s owner Alex Moran explained his choice of the VUE Audiotechnik al-4 system.

“We used the al-4s here last year and they were a dramatic improvement in several ways over loudspeakers we have used in past years. Due to the venue’s small ceiling heights the VUE al-4 line array was the ideal choice for this delay application. The line array’s small footprint solved the sightline dilemma. Additionally the low ceiling height made traditional rigging options unavailable, so the delay loudspeakers needed to be dead hung. This was not a problem with the al-4s since they are so lightweight a single technician took the entire array up in a scissor lift and easily hung it. Solving these problems and having a quality loudspeaker system that exhibits excellent definition and clarity makes the VUE al-4 a perfect fit for this kind of job.”

This year Spider Ranch added the recently released al-4-sb flyable isobaric subwoofer to each delay hang. The compact al-4-sb has two long-excursion 15-inch transducers with neodymium magnets and 4-inch voice coils placed front-to-front in an isobaric configuration.

“We used the al-4-sb as a low frequency component companion to the al-4s. This brought out the true nature of the music being performed on stage a 110 feet away to the people at the rear of the hall. At this event everyone is important and the sound quality everywhere is paramount. I’m very pleased with the addition of these compact isobaric cabinets.”

WSDG CREATES RUSTIC OWL CITY STUDIO FOR PLATINUM ARTIST ADAM YOUNG

src=”http://blog.svconline.com/briefingroom/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/140825-Adam-Young-Residence-Studio-Plan-and-Section-231×300.jpg” alt=”140825 Adam Young Residence Studio-Plan and Section” width=”231″ height=”300″ class=”alignnone size-medium wp-image-86531″ />Owl City Brian Bradley_2386 150Owl City Brian Bradley_2390 150Owl City ltr WSDG cofounder John Storyk_studio owner Adam Young_GCPRO founder PK Pandey  photo by Felipe Tavera  150140825 Adam Young Residence Studio-Plan and Section

OWATONNA, MN: Rapidly progressing from nascent electronica music experiments in his parents’ basement back in 2007, singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist Adam Young evolved from initial iTunes sales and a burgeoning Myspace site to a major deal with Republic Records in 2008, and on to Fireflies, a six-time platinum single, from his Ocean Eyes debut album (certified platinum in 2010). Increasing critical and commercial success has intensified Young’s focus on his music. To support his creativity he moved from his family home to a handsome rustic log cabin deep in the Minnesota woods, where he recently completed construction on a Walters-Storyk Design Group-WSDG, ‘dream’ studio.

“Adam Young’s manager Steve Bursky was impressed by our Jungle City Studio in NYC when he worked there a couple of years ago,” reports WSDG project manager, Joshua Morris. “When Adam decided to build a studio in his new home, Bursky suggested that he talk with us. I visited the site and met with him to get a true sense of what he was looking for. The local contractor was extremely meticulous in meeting all the requirements of our drawings. The results of our final acoustic measurements for reverberation time and Sound isolation met or exceeded all our goals. This studio is a gem.”

Owl City features a spacious (675 sq. ft.) control room outfitted with an SSL AWS console, Adam Audio S-4XV mains, twin 60” LCD monitors and an extensive collection of outboard gear. The studio was constructed with natural wood to compliment the log cabin’s interior and exterior setting. The Control Room is outfitted with a custom rolling slate-topped producer’s desk, and four mobile equipment racks to facilitate room reconfiguration to accommodate diverse session requirements. WSDG also designed an innovative, polycylindrical ceiling cloud to fine-tune the mixing position. A (225 sq. ft.) live room with a (35 sq. ft.) vocal booth supports Young’s primarily keyboard-based productions. PK Pandey, founder of GCPRO, coordinated the technology package.

Commenting on his new studio Adam Young remarked, “It was a tremendous honor and privilege working with John Storyk and WSDG PM, Joshua Morris, and systems designer, Federico Petrone. The studio they designed exceeded all my expectations. I couldn’t be happier working in the environment they created to suit every specific need I had. It looks fantastic and sounds even better, and at the end of the day I am thrilled to be the proud owner of such a fabulous studio. Endless thanks, WSDG.”

Based on his vision for software that is easy to learn and use, Kundrus is a natural fit to add to EastWest’s track record of creating innovative tools for composers in music, film, TV and gaming.

Greenlight Introduces New Pricing For Popular Control System Monitoring Service

greenlight pricing

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – March 2015 – Greenlight Control LLC, developer of the popular cloud based service Greenlight, announced a price reduction per system to just $10 per month.  The new price, down from a launch price of $249 per year, makes an outstanding value even better.

 

“For anyone who was on the fence about implementing Greenlight service, this is a huge motivation to start doing so now,” said Greenlight CEO Steve Hosterman. “We are giving dealers every incentive to improve their service departments, from an amazing new price to one-on-one assistance while getting started.”

 

Greenlight has the strongest offering of any control system monitoring service, and is the only product that allows dealers to track AMX, Crestron, and RTI systems all from one web based interface. Greenlight drastically reduces costly onsite service calls by giving the dealer all of the tools necessary to remotely monitor, troubleshoot and repair client systems from anywhere in the world.

 

“Dealers across the country and around the world rely on Greenlight to keep their customers happy,” said Hosterman. “We listened to dealers who told us they wanted a flat monthly price.  Now rolling Greenlight into a service contract is a no-brainer.”

 

In addition to the new price, dealers have discrete control over which systems get charged for monitoring.  If a customer decides to not renew a service contract, the dealer can simply “un-license” that system and no longer pay for Greenlight service.  Dealers only pay for exactly what they need.

Clear-Com To Show LQ Intercom Connectivity Solution At NAB 2015

Clear-Com(r) will show its recently released LQ(tm) Series, IP interface devices designed for linking intercom and audio systems across long distances over IP networks at this year’s NAB Booth C5409. With LQ devices, users of 2-wire partyline intercoms and 4-wire intercom and audio systems would be able to cost-effectively and quickly expand their intercom systems with no additional wiring. All the intercom linking is achieved over IP networks: house LAN, WAN or internet. NAB 2015 takes place at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) from April 13-16, 2015.

Released in January 2015, the LQ Series is Clear-Com’s newest line of Intercom Connectivity (ICON) solutions.
With either the two-wire (LQ-2W2) or four-wire (LQ-4W2) options, the LQ devices are ideal for intercom users who need to cost-effectively extend their existing intercom systems to single or multiple remote locations over their IT infrastructures, eliminating lengthy audio cable runs. LQ can also interface between different intercom systems routing both call signaling and audio over LAN, WAN or Internet IP connections: 2-wire
partyline with other OEM partyline systems, 2-wire with 4-wire devices, and 4-wire with 4-wire systems.

The LQ-2W2 is both Clear-Com and RTS TW compatible. A maximum of six LQ Series interfaces can be linked
together to form a managed network.

1_LQ

“Regardless of the type of intercom system being used, the LQ Series makes it easy to extend the system to the other side of a building, across campus, or across the world,” said Stephen Sandford Clear-Com’s Product Manager for Matrix and IP interfaces. “The ability to have an intercom station wherever Internet access is available is invaluable as productions become more complex and the need for reliable distributed communications
becomes more important. The LQ Series addresses this need perfectly.”

These two-channel devices are light-weight, portable and compact. They are easy to deploy and do not take up valuable rack space. Configuration is effortlessly achieved over a browser based user interface. Unique features of the LQ Series devices include Power over Ethernet, auto-nulling capability, multi-cast 1 to 5
routing, auto-discovery and use of the OPUS codec for high quality audio and low bit rate transmission.

The complete Clear-Com line of new and enhanced products will be available for demonstration at NAB 2015
on Booth C5409.

Clear-Com To Demonstrate Superior Capabilities of FreeSpeak II Wireless Intercom Solution at NAB 2015

Clear-Com® will bring its latest digital wireless intercom system, FreeSpeak II™ wireless intercom system to NAB 2015 Booth #C5409, taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) from April 13-16, 2015.

FreeSpeak II, which will have its NAB debut, has already proven to be an exceptional wireless intercom system for large scale deployments. FreeSpeak II operates in multiple license-free DECT bands from 1.897-1.933GHz. It succeeds the CellCom system in North America, which will continue to be offered for servicing and supporting existing CellCom system users.

FreeSpeak II (Base, Beltpack, Headset and Antenna)

The FreeSpeak II system delivers many improvements over CellCom. The all-new five-channel digital beltpack has an ergonomic form factor, intuitive operation and a rugged housing that is IP-65 rated for water and dust resistance. The beltpack features internal antennas, “Listen Again” audio memory replay, technician’s flash light on the underside, and real-time battery monitoring. The battery has been logged with an 18 hour continuous talk time. Beltpack users enjoy superior digital ‘Clear-Com Sound’ for clear intelligibility and ultimate audio comfort. Pairing the new beltpacks with the new distributed Active Antennas allows users to simultaneously roam across an expansive area while maintaining reliable wireless connections.

“FreeSpeak II is the wireless system that intercom users have been waiting for, whether in theatre, television, or any location where seamless mobility and high audio performance is essential,” said Simon Browne, Clear-Com’s Director of product management. “What makes FreeSpeak II stand out is not just its ability to intelligently integrate with digital intercom systems, but also the combination of digital audio clarity, innovative features, and reliable wireless connection. FreeSpeak II has made its way to the 2015 Oscars, on the War of the World Tour and on the Jimmy Kimmel Live Show, and proven to be a much more superior DECT wireless intercom system. Users forget that they are even on a wireless system.”

FreeSpeak II can be implemented as a standalone base station wireless system or as an integrated wireless solution within Eclipse HX matrices, known as FreeSpeak II Integra. When using the base station, up to 20 full-duplex wireless beltpacks can be connected; in an integrated matrix setup, as many as 50 (or 25 in North America) full-duplex wireless beltpacks can be used at the same time by strategically placing 10 or more distributed remote antennas to create an expansive coverage zone. These beltpack users are then able to directly communicate with any other remote or local matrix panel or other wireless or wired beltpack user who is on the Eclipse HX Matrix System network.

The complete Clear-Com line of new and enhanced products will be available for demonstration at NAB 2015 on Booth C5409.
