AMSTERDAM, 11 SEPTEMBER, 2014 – RTW (IBC Hall 8, Stand D92), the market leader in visual audio meters and monitoring devices, is once again providing the IBC 2014 show’s technology team with TM9 and TM7 TouchMonitor audio meters and SurroundControl 31960SD controller to support audio in the RAI’s D-Cinema auditorium featuring the IBC Big Screen Experience, as well as four TM3 TouchMonitor units to support the IBC News crew’s live and studio coverage of the show.

“We are very happy to be back this year, supporting the IBC show with an assortment of audio metering tools from RTW,” says Andreas Tweitmann, CEO, RTW. “We are longtime collaborators with IBC and are happy that the technology team finds our metering solutions useful for their important productions. This show represents the epitome of innovation in the broadcast technology market and we look forward to another inspiring show.”

In the RAI’s D-Cinema Auditorium, RTW’s TouchMonitor TM9 (HW 20911) will be used for confidence monitoring between the outputs of the console in the auditorium and the input to the cinema system. The IBC technology team chose to also use RTW’s SurroundControl 31960SD controller with 3G/HD/SD-SDI de-embedder interface option, “in order to give us flexibility to meet any de-embedding or other signal requirements,” explains Terry Nelson, Technical Resources, IBC.

Also in the auditorium, engineers will use the TouchMonitor TM7 (HW 20711), that is connected to the control surface of the Cadac console, this will help to provide accurate monitoring of the cinema system feeds.

Meanwhile, the IBC News crew will make use of several TouchMonitor TM3 audio meters. These will be used in the different production areas of IBC News and were chosen to be an important element in controlling and verifying levels.

The IBC Big Screen Experience is the ultimate showcase that demonstrates how the disciplines between cinema and traditional broadcast are merging. For the full IBC Big Screen Experience programme of events, click here.

HARMAN’s Martin Professional Lighting Creates Stunning Mountain Backdrop for Verdi’s La Traviata at the 2014 Masada Opera Festival

MASADA, Israel — The fifth annual Masada Opera Festival, held at the foot of Mount Masada—one of Israel’s most popular tourist attractions—featured stunning performances of Giuseppe Verdi’s La Traviata opera for an audience of thousands over the course of six days. With Mount Masada serving as a stage backdrop and the sets incorporating the desert elements of the area, Lighting Director Bogumil Palewicz along with Michal Znaniecki, Stage Director, and Luigi Scoglio, Set Designer, deployed HARMAN’s Martin Professional fixtures to provide stage and effects lighting.

The outdoor stage was created to depict the city of Paris, France rising from desert sand. Working with the stage designer and set designer to ensure the audience’s view was not obstructed, Palewicz created a design that positioned the lighting equipment in the sand and on towers placed away from the main stage. Palewicz used Martin’s MAC Aura LED Wash lights to create a bulb effect for the Paris stage and used Martin’s MAC Quantum Wash fixture for white light washes.

The stage design also featured Martin’s MAC III Performance, MAC Viper Profile, MAC Viper Performance, and MAC Viper Beam moving head lights. “The MAC III Performances are great for big productions like La Traviata or even events on small stages,” said Palewicz. “Despite the long distances from the stage, the fixture’s framing system allows for really precise lighting. Martin’s MAC Viper series has strong output, true colors, and tremendous gobo effects.”

In addition to lighting the stage, Palewicz also used Martin fixtures to light Mount Masada as a backdrop for the production’s set designs and integrate the mountain background seamlessly with a video wall on stage. In order to effectively extend the stage with the mountain, he utilized Martin’s MAC III AirFX fixtures to light a section of the mountain 1,200 meters wide by 500 meters tall.

Not only did the production call for the color of the mountain to change with the performance, but Palewicz also needed to project shapes and images onto the mountain as well. “I needed a powerful fixture capable of producing strong output over a long distance,” said Palewicz. “The mountain had to connect with the video wall on stage and the AirFXs were the perfect solution for creating a flawless backdrop.”

“Due to the outdoor nature of the performances, the Martin fixtures were subjected to harsh conditions such as dust and extreme heat. Their durable design more than withstood the desert environment, allowing us to have a consistent show throughout the six day festival,” said Palewicz. “I could not have imagined our success without the support from the Martin team and the reliability of their equipment.”

The production company involved with the project was Israel’s Stage Design Israel.
