MEDIALON animates outdoor and indoor façades of the new Danmarks Radio Concert Hall

Danmarks Radio, the Danish Broadcasting Corporation, has recently inaugurated its new Concert Hall designed by the French architect Jean Nouvel in Ørestaden near Copenhagen.

The Danmarks Radio Concert Hall welcomes operas, classical, jazz, pop and rock venues.
Informationsteknik Scandinavia, the technical and main creative supplier for the project, selected Medialon to be the unique AV control system for the exterior and indoor illuminations.

The building’s 14,000 square meter exterior and indoor façades are lightened up by impressive lighting and artistic projections.

Two Medialon Manager V5 PRO licenses control, trough Kissbox DMX network, a total of twenty four Martin Exterior 1200 gobos-lights as well as twelve Panasonic Image video projectors, used to project animated images and lighting effects onto the architecture with a variety of customized textures, colors and moving effects.

Being user friendly, Medialon Manager software allows easy control and changes of the video content displayed on the exterior façade and match it with the music being performed inside via several Dataton Watchout PCs. Lights are also synchronized by Medialon when video content changes. Designers, artists and technicians are then able to create something much more sophisticated and exciting than with paint, static lighting or banners.

One Medialon Scheduler has also been integrated and is used as the main user interface so the Danmarks Radio can administrate and control what should be displayed inside and outside the concert hall.

Medialon also interfaces the regular house lighting control system through Kissbox I/O.

“I’m convinced that the façade’s art projection will draw the attention of citizens and tourists alike, and will act as an appetizer for activities within the Concert Hall,? says Niels Bull Klarskov, Division Manager at Informationsteknik.

“Our project together with Atelier Jean Nouvel and the Danmarks Radio is a break through within indoor and outdoor Architectural Lightning in the Nordic Area. From our knowledge it is the first time that projector technology from Martin and Panasonic is used in this magnitude to create images and expressions on a building – It is a truly not a “prêt à porter? project?, concludes Håkan Hansson, Informationsteknik CEO.

ET Quake Multimedia Rocks Nigeria’s “House On The Rock? With JBL VERTEC® Powered Line Arrays

NORTHRIDGE, California – In a house of worship installation that showcases the easy configuration capabilities of JBL VERTEC® line arrays, Nigerian systems integration firm ET Quake Multimedia recently upgraded the audio system at The Refuge in Abuja, Nigeria, a branch of the Lagos-based House on the Rock Church. UK-based independent consultant Roland Hemming provided system design assistance, relying on the superior performance characteristics of VERTEC® DP Series powered line arrays with JBL DrivePack™ technology to provide the facility with a clear, powerful full-bandwidth sound reinforcement system.

Built in 1999, The Refuge is one of 40 House on the Rock worship sites and mission facilities in Nigeria. Pastor GoodHeart Obi C. Ekwueme leads The Refuge, which acts as a springboard for strategic ministry operations in northern Nigeria and beyond. As the evangelical organization has expanded, so has its need for improved, high-performance audio systems for its churches.

jbl_hotr2.jpgThe Refuge’s new main PA system features two arrays in a left-right configuration, each containing 10 JBL VT4887ADP-AN powered compact line array elements, and three JBL VT4880A ultra-long excursion, dual 18-inch arrayable subwoofers. Using onboard amplification and digital signal processing technology designed in cooperation with Crown and dbx, each JBL VT4887ADP-AN compact line array loudspeaker contains a DP-2 DrivePack, providing 2,200 watts peak (1,100W continuous) output power. With suspension hardware including quick-release pins and end-mounted metal frames to couple adjacent units together in rigid but flexible arrays, the VERTEC loudspeakers helped simplify the installation process. “The VERTEC line arrays were a very good fit for this project,? Hemming said. “They were easy to configure and the actual installation of the loudspeakers, with all the rigging, took less than a day.?

Complementing the main line array system are eight JBL AC28/95 loudspeakers dispersed throughout the worship space as delay fills. A total of 16 VRX915M stage monitors are available to serve the venue’s performance-based worship services. Crown MA12000i and MA5000i amplifiers power the loudspeaker elements not equipped with JBL DrivePacks, while the system also features a Soundcraft MH3 mixing console at the front of house position. Signal processing is achieved with dbx DriveRack 4800 Loudspeaker Management Systems, and a variety of AKG microphones round out the new system installation.
