API’s 1608 Debut in Korea for Engineers-in-Training

Kwangwoon_UniversitySEOUL/ANSWONG, KOREA – JANUARY 2015: Korean distributor MI Corporation’s most recent sale for API is a landmark deal. Two 1608 consoles were sold at once, marking the first two colleges in the country to install API consoles. Although a handful of other 1608s have been sold in Korea, this particular sale adds to API’s growing presence in colleges and universities around the world. The first console of this double-hitter was sold to Kwangwoon University, where it is used in the Practical Music department. Kwangwoon is a private research university in Seoul that is best known for its engineering and IT programs. The Practical Music department is one among many designed to give students hands-on experience that will translate to important skills in the work force. Kwangwoon was founded in 1934, during the “dawn of the electronic era” for Korea, at which time the school was called the “Joseon Radio Training Center.” Music recording and transmitting is still a major part of what Kwangwoon students are learning every day – now API is part of that education.

Dowoon_Technical_CollegeThe second 1608 was purchased through MI Corporation by Doowon Technical College. This console has also been installed in the Practical Music department’s practice studio. Also like Kwangwoon, Doowon commissioned a 16-channel 1608 for its students. Based in Answong, Doowon is a school for engineers-in-training, making it the perfect home for a 1608. Chan Doo Kim, the founder and chairman of the Doowon Group, says this of the students at Doowon: “It is my hope that young engineers who will be responsible for the future carry a formidable determination and a challenging consciousness to take the highest authority in their chosen professions.” The school was founded in 1990, and has sister relationships with engineering schools in China and Japan.

Both consoles were installed in August, and have been used to give the students practical experience on top-of-the-line equipment. Hak Yong Shim of MI Corp says that the schools were convinced to purchase API gear not only by, “MI Corp suggestions, but also based on the opinions of professors at the schools.”

In the last few months, API saw new consoles installed in schools across three separate continents, from large-format Vision and Legacy units to the newest compact BOX console, which premiered at last year’s AES conference in New York. The BOX’s presence in educational facilities continues to grow as schools all over the world choose to place API equipment in their programs, with the intention of training students on the best in the world of analog recording. API hopes that this trend continues, and that opportunities for permanent placement in schools everywhere will continue to grow.

ABOUT API (AUTOMATED PROCESSES, INC.)Established 45 years ago, Automated Processes, Inc. is the leader in analog recording gear with the Vision, Legacy Series, 1608, and the BOX recording consoles, as well as its classic line of modular signal processing equipment.

SMPTE Expands Virtual Classroom With Courses on IP Media Transport and Navigating the UHD Ecosystem

New Courses Address Critical Industry Topics, Offer Access to Expert Coaching Within a Structured, Interactive Online Education Environment

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — Jan. 12, 2015 — The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers(R) (SMPTE(R)), the worldwide leader in motion-imaging standards and education for the communications, media, entertainment, and technology industries, is expanding its virtual classroom with the introduction of two new courses — “The Essentials of Internet Protocol (IP) Media Transport for Broadcasters: Moving Real-Time Video and Audio Over Packet Networks” and “Navigating the Ultra High Definition (UHD) Ecosystem.” Designed to provide focused, technical knowledge critical to working in today’s digital media industry, the SMPTE Virtual Classroom courses also include the Society’s Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA) Routing & Switching Program.

The Essentials of IP Media Transport for Broadcasters
The first course will begin Feb. 2 and run for six weeks. Subsequent courses will begin on April 6, July 13, Oct. 5, and Nov. 23.

To offer today’s media consumers a rich array of content on their choice of viewing devices, production and broadcasting facilities must implement complex infrastructure. With an understanding of IP video technology, content creators can establish streamlined, networked file-based supply chains that enable greater efficiencies and support greater scalability in meeting consumer demand.

“The increasing utility and ubiquity of packet-based network infrastructure for the creation, storage, transfer, and streaming of professional media make it more important than ever that broadcast engineers understand the basics of IP-based media transport,” said Pat Griffis, SMPTE education vice president. “With the art and science of the traditional film and broadcast industries being transformed by Silicon Valley technology, this knowledge is essential to the efficient and successful delivery of media across key media consumption platforms and all variety of viewing devices.”

SMPTE’s course on the essentials of IP media transport for broadcasters will give engineers, technicians, and professionals a solid grasp on the key principles of IP video and audio transport as implemented in modern production and broadcasting facilities. This virtual course offers industry members a unique opportunity to learn about these elements from the very organization whose standards continue to lead the future of networked media transport.

Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to describe the facility workflow domains for networked file-based and streaming media transport; compare and contrast serial digital interface (SDI) and IP-based workflow models; discuss the components and protocols used in an IP-based video production workflow; explain how to choose and configure video and audio codecs across business applications; and select appropriate image and audio synchronization methods during mixing and switching.

With a more comprehensive understanding of Internet delivery systems, participants will be able to discuss distribution outlets and common delivery protocols such as MPEG DASH, short for Moving Picture Experts Group Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP); Adobe Systems HDS (HTTP Dynamic Streaming); Apple HLS (HTTP Live Streaming); and Microsoft Smooth Streaming. They also will be able to identify factors that can impact network performance and perform basic troubleshooting for network-related workflow issues.

Navigating the UHD Ecosystem
The first course will begin March 9 and will run for eight weeks. Subsequent courses will begin on June 1, Sept. 14, and Dec. 7.

This SMPTE course is essential for engineers, technicians, and craft engineers who will deploy and use UHD systems, as well as those involved with content creation, distribution, and delivery. Editors, manufacturers, and equipment suppliers with an interest in UHD will benefit from the course, as well.

“SMPTE has been studying the entire UHD ecosystem, looking at higher frame rates (HFR), wider color gamut, pixel density, high dynamic range (HDR), peak brightness, and immersive audio,” said Richard Welsh, SMPTE governor for the EMEA and Central and South America Region and CEO at Sundog Media Toolkit. “Leading the way in practical implementation of UHD throughout the production and distribution chain, SMPTE published its first HDR standard, ST 2084, in September 2014. This course will take advantage of SMPTE’s extensive study and standards work to provide participants with an understanding of UHD and its future.”

The course begins with a review of UHD essentials, the standardization of basic parameters, and the impact that UHD will have on the industry. Turning to display technology, a critical element in making UHD practical, the course will examine techniques that support higher pixel densities and look at the current status of display manufacturing. In considering audio for UHD, the course will outline technical options for immersive sound systems, including object-based, scene-based, and discrete channel-based systems.

A subsequent discussion of UHD broadcast distribution and broadband delivery methods will focus on UHD compression, primarily high-efficiency video compression (HEVC), for transport across broadcast channels and IP-based networks via broadband Internet. The course then will examine how production and acquisition techniques are affected by working with UHD in uncompressed and compressed forms. Particular attention will be devoted to UHD interface standards and the need for faster storage with increased capacity.

Moving on to take a detailed look at UHD production workflows, the course will focus on prospects for an industrywide reference architecture — from camera to post to storage and archive — and present a case study on live UHD production. The course will conclude with a consideration of the strategic dimensions of UHD, including possible timelines and potential barriers to success.

Complete details and registration for all SMPTE Virtual Classroom courses, including the CCNA Routing & Switching Program, are available at www.smpte.org/education/courses. Space in each course is limited to 12 participants.

Prism Sound’s Lyra 2 Makes its Las Vegas Debut

Luca Pretolesi

Studio DMI, a private facility that focuses on mixing and mastering electronic music, has incorporated a range of Prism Sound equipment, including a Lyra 2 audio interface that is being used to record mixes and A/B two different sound sources.

Based in Las Vegas, Studio DMI is owned by European Music Market Inc, which also owns two publishing companies and an entry level entertainment service company called Weebang. EUMM also operates The Studio at The Wynn, a high-end recording facility in The Wynn Casino Hotel that is made available to very high end producers and artists performing at The Wynn’s venues.

Ronnie F Lee, CEO of EUMM, says: “Studio DMI is more than a studio – it is a concept based on the engineer lifestyle and creative process. Literally speaking, we have combined the word ‘studio, which means study in Italian, with DMI, which stands for digital music innovation. The basic philosophy comes from the heart, soul and mind of Luca Pretolesi, who is the creative side of our business and handles all the engineering and training of our engineering associates. Luca has 25 years’ experience of producing, performing, mixing, mastering and pioneering electronic music. This has given him a very unique grasp on the EDM industry.”

The choice of Prism Sound equipment was taken by Pretolesi after he visited the Winter Music Conference in 2013. He opted for a Prism Sound MEA-2 Equaliser, an MLA-2 Compressor and a Lyra 2 audio interface, which he installed in Studio DMI along with a new Maselec MTC-1X stereo mastering console.

“The MTC1 serves as the brain for the entire studio. It is like the hub between the mixing and mastering process,” Luca Pretolesi says. “Even before mastering, it acts as a great way to monitor multiple sources with no latency or added colour, check mono compatibility and side information – and it is all done with one finger. During mastering, it is also great to have the ability to flip between inputs, mid/side information and add parallel processing with just your hands. It allows you to make changes very quickly using only your ears rather than a mouse and your eyes.”

Pretolesi adds that, based on his 20-plus years of experience, the Prism Sound MLA-2 is by far the most transparent and musical compressor he has ever heard.

“You can really get it pumping but it doesn’t colour the sound,” he says. “I usually use a low ratio with a slow attack but it is very versatile and you can do a lot of very versatile compression.”

Pretolesi is equally impressed with his Prism Sound MEA-2 Equaliser that, like the MLA-2, is mostly used during the final stage of the mastering process.

“I usually spilt this into two parts,” he explains, “the top end, which I use for more surgical EQ-ing and the low end, between 40-300hz, which gives the sounds a great attitude and weight. The MEA-2 is capable of some very heavy lifting on the low end without losing the transients or the overall sound.”

Studio DMI’s Lyra 2 audio interface plays a bigger role in the recording and mixing process than in mastering.

“We included the Lyra 2 because we were looking for a fantastic converter to capture our mixes with the great high end sound that Prism Sound is known for,” Pretolesi says. “However, we also wanted the ability to A/B two sources, which we can do with Lyra 2 because it is a two in/four out interface.”

Studio DMI is now using its Lyra 2 to record a mix while also comparing it to reference tracks.

“Non-traditionally, I also use it musically by clipping the input to achieve a certain sound on a lot of my mixes,” Luca Pretolesi adds.

Studio DMI is primarily Luca Pretolesi’s facility, while the Wynn Studio operated by Studio DMI attracts high profile producers and artists such as Diplo, Lil Jon, Gareth Emery, MakJ and Morgan Page.

“We are currently in the process of creating an educational division to spread Luca’s passion and knowledge about mixing and mastering electronic music,” Ronnie F Lee adds. “This will be a unique learning opportunity that targets post graduates from more traditional schools and focuses on application more than theory.

The first three day workshop under the Studio DMI.edu brand will run in the first quarter of 2015, in either Las Vegas or Los Angeles. Courses will be offered in English, with other languages made available later in the year.
