BUENA PARK, Calif.—Housed in the renovated, historic Fenway Theater in Boston, the Berklee Performance Center is the Berklee College of Music’s flagship performance space seating more then 1,200 and counted among Boston’s most prestigious concert halls. Parsons Audio (Wellesley, MA) recently added two new Yamaha CL5 Digital Audio Consoles in the performance center for use by student and faculty productions as well as national entertainment.

Berklee has had a long relationship with Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems consoles dating back to 1976 beginning with the Yamaha PM1000, 3K, PM4K, PM1D, PM5D, DM2K, and now the CL Series. A CL5 is positioned at front of house with a second based in Studio BPC located in an area above the theater.

“The BPC looked upon the new CL as the PM1D successor, states Rick Scott, Sales Director, Parsons Audio LLC. Among features that were appealing to the technical team were the networking capabilities of this generation of Yamaha consoles along with its Rupert Neve plug-ins within the Premium Rack and integration with Nuendo Live.” Parsons Audio has provided customer support of the school’s Yamaha consoles since the very beginning.

“We had the Yamaha PM1D for eight years, and wanted to make sure we could stay up-to-date with current, commercially available (and currently supported) technology, states Ed Libeartore, A1 at BPC. We also really wanted to have something with remote iPad control, so we could mix monitors on stage from the FOH console.”

Liberatore said he immediately loved the sound of the preamps and the processing, and quickly became accustomed to having the controls accessible from the touch screen. “Handing an iPad off to a student assistant has been working amazingly well. It lets me concentrate on the house mix and seems to make the performers more comfortable knowing that there is somebody who can listen to the same monitor speaker with them and build a custom mix right on the spot with exactly what they need without ever having to shout to me, standing 50 feet away.”

Studio BPC, which regularly multitrack records many of the performance center concerts, is a teaching lab for live performance location recording classes. The studio is fed from a separate split off the on-stage mic snake box, but also receives a feed from the house Dante network for additional options. “I am really happy with our decision on going with the CL5 console for our live recording studio, states Alejandro Rodriguez, Associate Professor, Music Production and Engineering, Berklee College of Music. The Dante Network is key in the success of our new BPC Studio, and we use Nuendo Live linked to the CL5 as one of our two multi-track systems capable of recording up to 64 channels, receiving independently the outputs of our 64 Grace mic preamps.”

InfoComm International Teams With AMX Europe to Train 75 AV Networking Pros

Nine Discounted Sessions of InfoComm’s Networked AV Systems Class to be offered

InfoComm International is collaborating with AMX Europe to provide networked audiovisual systems training to AV professionals. At least 75 students will be able to take InfoComm’s highly regarded Networked AV Systems class at a discounted rate in Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom, dramatically raising the number of trained professionals in the region.

The three-day classes will be offered nine times in AMX Training Centres, and will cost €400/£350+VAT for members, €800/£650+VAT, for non-members.

“The AV world has evolved and if you lack knowledge of IT networks you are creating obstacles to your success,” said David Labuskes, CTS, RCDD, Executive Director and CEO, InfoComm International. “AV systems increasingly use enterprise IP networks — the same networks that already carry mission-critical voice, data and other information. These networks were never designed with real-time delivery of audiovisual content in mind. Without an in-depth understanding of IP networks and the way AV applications operate within them, customer expectations may not be met. And improperly configured AV devices can create catastrophic network problems. InfoComm thanks AMX for their strong commitment to this program and industry quality.”

”AV and IT convergence is moving ever closer and a lack of Networking and IT knowledge can be a major stumbling block to achieving successful AV installations today,” added Graeme Scott, European Training Manager, AMX Europe. “AMX is committed to empowering its customers with information and training that will keep them ahead of the game. We are delighted to be collaborating with InfoComm to deliver the Networked AV Systems training across Europe. InfoComm believes in promoting knowledge and quality throughout the industry; beliefs that AMX also holds very dear.”

The Networked AV Systems course is built around real-world applications that clients want today, and the way AV and IT technologies must be coordinated to create the best experience. The course follows the process of matching AV and networking technologies to customer needs for digital signage, conferencing, remote monitoring and management, and networked AV security. It goes through the planning for three fictional companies, each with its unique requirements.

Students will learn how to glean customer needs, manage trade-offs between quality and bandwidth, and work through the sometimes conflicting needs of customers and network managers. In the end, through better coordination among clients, IT professionals, and AV designers, network-based AV systems can deliver the kind of communication experience that benefits everyone.

Because many will need more basic education before endeavoring into Networked AV Systems, InfoComm’s Networking Technology Online class, which conveys foundational knowledge, will be a perquisite for enrollment. AMX is generously covering the cost of this class for all who enroll in the Networked AV Systems sessions at their centers. Classes will be offered as follows: 3 – 5 March, London; 6 – 8 March, Netherlands; 10 – 12 March, Sweden; 21 – 23 July, London or York; 24 – 26 July, Belgium; 28 – 30 July, Paris; 13 – 15 October, London; 16 – 18 October, TBD; and 20 – 22 October, Germany.
