‘Torus Power Hour +’ CEDIA CEU Course Promises to Be a Groundbreaker Thanks to an All-Star Cast of Industry Experts

Renowned experts Anthony Grimani, Dennis Erskine, Arthur Kelm, Dr. Henry Pajooman, David Rodarte and Kevin Main give CEDIA professionals the inside track on grounding and power for high-end, high-performance installations

TORONTO, ON, CANADA - AUGUST 25, 2014 – Torus Power, a subsidiary of Plitron Manufacturing and maker of uncompromising and unrivaled isolation transformer–based power management components, announced today the Company will be hosting the groundbreaking ‘Torus Power Hour +’ Industry Expert Panel Session and Manufacturer Training Course during CEDIA Expo 2014, onSeptember 12, from 3 to 4:30 PM (Room 605 at time of press).

“Though commonly misunderstood, proper power management ensures both the integrity and performance of connected Audio/Video equipment is preserved,” says Kevin Main, VP of Sales and Marketing for Torus Power. “The Torus Power Hour + aims to demystify and educate the audience on proper power and grounding while providing some strong opinions and invaluable application insight from some of the best minds in the industry. This will be a discussion worth making time for!”

Main will introduce Torus Power and the esteemed panel, including host David Rodarte, global strategist and champion of the CE industry and recipient of Consumer Electronics Association’s TechHome Leadership Award. Rodarte, also past CEO of NuVo Technologies and now CEO of ChangingVelocity, will lead a panel of luminaries from all corners of the industry. Panelists include Anthony Grimani, world-famous audio expert and acoustician and President of Media Specialty Resources, Inc. and Dennis Erskine, award-winning THX-certified professional theater designer, acoustical engineer, CEO of the Erskine Group, and CEDIA Vice Chairman. Joining them will be power and grounding expert Arthur Kelm, CEO of Ground One, and Dr. Henry Pajooman, Ph.D., specialist in motors and magnetics and VP of Engineering for Plitron Manufacturing.

The CEDIA course is worth 0.75 Continuing Education (CEU) credits, but Torus Power Hour’s real draw is the promise of an electrifying discussion on power and grounding for high-end, high-performance installations. The panelists will also cover everything integrators need to know to properly power, protect, and preserve electronics, followed by a deep dive into related technologies and key success factors. Some questions that will be put to the experts are: What are some of the high-level considerations that you think about when working on a power-hungry project? What are the symptoms you’ve experienced in a system that only an isolation transformer could have resolved? How do integrators justify the investment in toroidal isolation products with customers? And more.

As a thank you for the time taken away from the busy trade show floor, Torus will award one pre-registered course attendee the prize of the Torus Power AVR 20 Toroidal Isolation Power Transformer with Automatic Voltage Regulation. Enrollment for the course is limited to 90 students and early registration is encouraged.

WIND OVER THE EARTH ADDS AN API 1608 TO ITS DEMO ROOM STUDIO

BOULDER, COLORADO – AUGUST 2014: Situated in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Wind Over the Earth (WOTE) offers recording sessions for local bands, singer/songwriters, and voice-overs, as well as post-production and training services within its demo studios. It doesn’t promote itself as a commercial studio, but rather uses its space as a base of knowledge to be shared with the community. As a longtime user of API gear, WOTE has now commissioned an in-house 1608 console to offer real world knowledge and applications to its customers.

“Jumping into the 1608 is something we wanted to do for quite some time,” stated Mark Venezia, studio manager at WOTE. “The classic sound of API is something WOTE has been advocating for years, so when we were making the decision to install a console, the 1608 was the right fit.”

Since the commissioning, the 1608’s headroom, imaging, and overall depth of sound have made an immediate impact. “The 1608 has brought us up to another level of visibility,” shared Venezia. “It has made our life that much easier. The work flow on everything we do is smoother.”

Part of what makes the 1608 a success at WOTE is the setup. “We have everything wired into four bays as of right now, and the ease of use revealed itself in our first session. We custom-build all of our cables here at WOTE, and the last two 1608 consoles we have sold have included custom wiring packages for specific client needs,” explained Venezia. “In each case, customers who have been in our demo room learned first-hand the ease of use. The versatility of moving modules around is nice as well.”

With some post-production projects, recording sessions, and a series of live shows using the 1608 already complete, WOTE is eager to pursue further trainings. “We are putting together a series of master’s mixing seminars, where we will be flying out some high-profile engineers for an evening of knowledge sharing in the mixing environment. We love hosting seminars like this, as community is our number one priority,” shared Venezia. Part of the glue that holds all the future works together is the knowledge WOTE is able to pair with the gear it offers. “The 1608 is the centerpiece of the room, and everything is based around it.”

ABOUT API (AUTOMATED PROCESSES, INC.) Established more than 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.

JVC ‘F.A.S.T. Track Tour’ to Showcase Live HD Streaming Technologies

Multi-City Road Show Launches in Boston on Aug. 26

WAYNE, NJ – JVC Professional Products Company, a division of JVC Americas Corp., today announced its “F.A.S.T. Track Tour,” a series of presentations to promote the live HD streaming capabilities built into its camcorders and related products, as well as to provide information about streaming technology for video professionals. The multi-city tour launches in Boston on Aug. 26, 2014, at the Boston Marriott Newton, and continues to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., on Sept. 23. The free seminars run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and include lunch.

Short for “Fluent Adaptive Streaming Technology,” F.A.S.T. represents streaming technology built into JVC’s GY-HM650, GY-HM850 and GY-HM890 cameras that includes content-aware error correction to ensure reliable HD transmission over a variety of Internet connections. During the presentation, JVC will showcase the cameras as well as its new BR-800 ProHD Broadcaster server, BR-EN800 encoder and BR-DE800 decoder. The program will also include guest speakers and interactive demonstrations.

“JVC has already revolutionized live reporting for several broadcast news stations across the country. Now we want to show the professional non-broadcast marketplace – from corporations and churches to PEG channels and event videographers – how to provide cost effective live HD transmissions for their audiences,” said Dave Walton, assistant vice president, marketing communications. “We have recruited industry experts to share valuable information and help our attendees get on the ‘F.A.S.T. Track’ for live HD video streaming.”

The program includes an introduction to streaming technology, including details on bandwidth, data rates, encoding and protocols. Streaming production workflows, from network connectivity to delivery, will also be discussed. The seminars will be presented by industry consultant Jan Ozer, who has written more than 20 books about video technology and currently writes for Streaming Media Magazine and Streaming Media Producer.

“Many producers shy away from live streaming because they think it’s too hard, too expensive and that the quality is inferior,” said Ozer. “With its in-camera HD streaming capabilities, JVC has created a simple, high-quality and affordable streaming solution that can improve communications within an organization or potentially create a new revenue stream.”

Additional F.A.S.T. Track Tour dates are being confirmed for other major markets, including Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington D.C.

ABS Returns to Seattle and Portland for Media Technology Expo 2014

SEATAC, WA — Video professionals in the Pacific Northwest are gearing up for the 3rd Annual Media Technology Expo, which begins Sept. 30 at Fremont Studios in Seattle and concludes at Left Bank Annex in Portland, Ore., on Oct. 2. Presented by professional video and audio systems integration firm Advanced Broadcast Solutions (ABS), both venues will feature a full schedule of educational seminars, plus an exhibit hall showcasing the industry’s latest technologies and services from almost 40 exhibitors. Registration is free and includes lunch.

“Based on the response we’ve received over the past two years, it’s clear that the Pacific Northwest professional video marketplace needs a show like MTE,” said Mark Siegel, president of ABS. “Larger shows like NAB are great and attract people from across the country, but many smaller operations and even some broadcasters can’t afford to attend. MTE provides our regional production community access to new equipment demos and one-on-one time with company reps, so they can research the gear they need to drive their business.”

“MTE helps our company connect with video professionals from two of the largest television markets in the U.S.,” added Sarah Madio, marketing communications manager for Broadcast Pix, which will demo its integrated production switchers at the show. “This is a great opportunity for us to showcase our product line to schools, government channels and broadcast stations. We’ve been a part of MTE since the beginning and it keeps getting better.”

The conference program will include sessions on audio, lighting techniques, intercoms, virtual sets and 4K production. It will also feature a “Broadcast Roundtable” with local news professionals who will speak about changing business models and emerging technologies. MTE 2014 is being sponsored by the Washington Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors (WATOA).

MTE 2014 is open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. in both locations and offers free valet parking for all attendees. Registration includes free food and beverages during the show, but space is limited. For registration, vendor information, and full seminar schedule, visit www.mediatechexpo.com.

Based in SeaTac, WA, ABS (Advanced Broadcast Solutions) delivers customized, technologically superior solutions for broadcast, corporate, house of worship, entertainment, government, and educational facilities – from design and integration to installation and support services.
