Forbidden Technologies Unveils New Brand Identity Based on Its Vision for Change

LONDON — April 7, 2014 — Forbidden Technologies plc (AIM:FBT), the AIM-quoted owner and developer of the market-leading cloud video platform Forscene, announced a new brand identity that reflects the evolution of its vision for the organisation and its role in the media industry. As remote productions become more common, production teams become more dispersed, and more people in multiple locations must feed the post-production process simultaneously, Forbidden has renewed its commitment to helping media makers change their vision of how they make media, how media is viewed, and of the media industry as a whole. In addition, this new brand identity will give Forbidden the opportunity to launch new products outside of broadcast and post-production.

“With the new brand, our mindset is focused on removing the barriers that challenge all media makers and ensure that now, the only thing forbidden’ is limitation itself,” said Greg Hirst, business development director, Forbidden Technologies plc. “That viewpoint is powering the development of Forscene and how it integrates into various workflows, enabling our customers to craft stories with the qualities their audiences want — global, real-time, multichannel, compelling — more quickly and flexibly than ever.”

Forscene is the world’s leading cloud-based video editing tool, and for more than ten years has been supporting media organisations in creating stories flexibly and easily. It provides professional post-production tools in a software-as-a-service (SaaS) package for all video industries, including broadcast post-production, news, and sport. Forscene takes advantage of cloud computing to enable the centralisation of material and collaboration in workflows. The result is the ability to connect from any Web browser and perform the full range of post-production functions using flexible monthly SaaS pricing.

Attendees of the 2014 NAB Show can experience the new brand identity — and learn more about the change in vision behind it — in Forbidden’s booth, SL5305.

Riedel Introduces Virtual Key Panel App for Artist Digital Matrix Intercom System

WUPPERTAL, Germany — April 7, 2014 — Riedel Communications, provider of pioneering real-time video, audio, data, and communications networks, today unveiled a new app that enables use of compatible iOS, OS X(R), and Android devices as virtual key panels for the company’s acclaimed Artist digital matrix intercom system. Allowing users to turn their smartphones and tablets into full-featured 12-key virtual panels for any Artist system, the new app adds even greater flexibility to the already versatile intercom solution.

“The option of using smartphones and tablets as intercom interfaces is just one more compelling reason to work with our Artist intercom product,” said Christian Bockskopf, marketing and communications for Riedel Communications. “With this new key panel app, users on the move can maintain convenient control over their Artist systems at all times.”

Operating the app’s virtual key panel via the device’s touch-screen interface, users enjoy the same signaling capabilities as they would on Riedel’s 1000 Series wired control panel for Artist systems. Like the wired control panels, the new key panel app can be configured via Riedel’s Director software.

To facilitate mobile control over the Artist system through the new app, a VOIP-108 G2 card at the Artist frame converts eight Artist matrix ports into a compressed IP stream. To assure excellent audio quality at all times, users can choose between two modes — a high-quality mode with an audio bandwidth of 6 kHz, resulting in a data rate of less than 80 kBit/s (including panel data); and a low-traffic mode with 4 kHz audio bandwidth and a data rate of less than 40 kBit/s per channel (including panel data). The VOIP-108 G2 client card then communicates with the virtual panels via a WAN connection to a wireless network.

Riedel’s key panel app for Artist intercom systems is now available through the respective app stores for iOS, OS X, and Android devices.

Further information about Riedel and the company’s products is available at www.riedel.net.

Riedel Enhances MediorNet Real-Time Media Network With MediorNet 2.0

WUPPERTAL, Germany — April 7, 2014 — Riedel Communications, a leading provider of real-time video, audio, data, and communications networks, today announced that it will showcase the new functionality enabled by its MediorNet 2.0 update at the 2014 NAB Show. With this update for Riedel’s acclaimed MediorNet real-time media network, users realize added benefits, including full video router functionality, seamless interoperability with Studer consoles, EMBER+ implementation, and extended integration of the ProBel protocol.

“MediorNet 2.0 gives MediorNet users a flexible, easy-to-operate alternative to conventional video routers,” said Karsten Schragmann, product manager at Riedel Communications. “By incorporating tremendous routing capabilities right into the MediorNet frame, this firmware update enables users to lower their operations costs while reducing the volume and complexity of cabling required for audio and video signal transport.”

The MediorNet 2.0 update includes robust video router functionality with switching delays of less than 40 milliseconds, as well as high-speed rerouting that allows as many as 1,000 connections to be rerouted in less than a second. Simple drag-and-drop routing of multiple connections speeds configurations, and users now have the option to delete multiple selected connections at once. The firmware update also supports more than 65,000 ProBel crosspoints.

MediorNet 2.0 introduces Studer A-Link compatibility, which enables the MediorNet Modular frame to act as a decentralized audio router with a matrix size larger than 25,000² and fully redundant interfaces. At the same time, MediorNet fully supports EMBER+ for integration with other common control systems, such as VSM and KSC Commander. Because the update permits access to all MediorNet parameters and allows users to edit I/O settings and control all routing functions, users retain control over configuration options.

Additional features that come with MediorNet 2.0 include a timecode display that can be configured to the user’s preferred size and position, an LTC input, and sample rate conversion on both optical MADI ports of MediorNet Compact systems.

Further information about Riedel and the company’s products is available at www.riedel.net.

Meyer Sound LEO is “Dynamite for Every Show” on Hedley Canadian Tour

The multiplatinum-selling pop-rock band Hedley is in the midst of their cross-continent “Wild Live” tour of Canada supported by a Meyer Sound LEO™ linear large-scale sound reinforcement system. Supplied by Richmond, BC-based KiAN Concert Sound Services, the flexible LEO system adapts to venues of all shapes and sizes, from theatres up to arenas in Montreal and Toronto.

“LEO has been dynamite for every show,” says Russ Giroux, FOH engineer and tour manager for Hedley. “I can get a clean, tight pop mix out of LEO in difficult arenas. Even when the roof level is different from one side to the other, or with very steep 200 levels, I still get solid, uniform coverage. It’s a super-versatile system that helps a lot in unconventional rooms.”

The typical configuration for the smaller venues is 12 LEO-M line array loudspeakers per side, which is increased to 15 per side for larger arenas. Available as needed are 24 MILO, 12 M’elodie, and two MICA line array loudspeakers for outfill, front-fill, and downfill applications, respectively. Twelve 1100-LFC low-frequency control elements and 12 700-HP subwoofers supply low-end reinforcement, while a Galileo® Callisto™ loudspeaker management system comprising one Galileo 616 AES and four Galileo Callisto 616 array processors supplies drive and alignment. Six MJF-212A stage monitors are used for stage foldback.

“I’ve been really impressed with the 1100-LFCs,” says Giroux. “They are super efficient, and with Galileo and the Compass® software, we’re able to steer them to avoid a power alley down the middle. Also, their power is incredible.”

Giroux appreciates the flat, linear response and pattern control of the LEO-M arrays as well. “We have a satellite B stage way in front of the arrays,” he notes. “We are able to tune the PA so the lead singer can work out in front of the speakers for 80 percent of the show, but we never worry about feedback.”

KiAN has supplied two 96-input Avid VENUE Profile consoles for FOH and monitors, while the band uses Sennheiser 2000 Series wireless microphones along with Sennheiser G3 IEM and instrument systems.

“I admit that I decided to take out this rig having never heard LEO before, so I was taking a chance,” says Giroux. “But I ‘ve worked with KiAN for years, and I was told great things about LEO by people I respect. They were right.”

One of Canada’s most popular touring acts, Juno Award-winning Hedley has released four consecutive multi-platinum albums. Its 36-city “Wild Live” tour kicked off in Prince George, BC, turned around in St. John’s, Newfoundland, and finishes in Abbotsford, BC.

Arup and McCune Reinforce Vancouver TED2014 Conference with Meyer Sound M’elodie

For its 30th anniversary, the TED conference moved from its long-time Long Beach location to a custom-built, 1,200-seat theatre at the Vancouver Convention Centre in Canada. Luminaries participating at the five-day event included Sting, Bill and Melinda Gates, and Tim Berners-Lee, best known as the inventor of the World Wide Web. As was the case in the former location, a Meyer Sound M’elodie® line array loudspeaker system was chosen to provide the audio clarity needed for an audience who came to be engaged and inspired.

“The M’elodies have treated me well since we first started using them six years ago,” says Erik Sandberg, long-time FOH engineer for the event. “Their intelligibility is exceptional, which is critical because some TED presenters are soft-spoken, and not professional speakers. Also, the system is compact and visually discreet, which the client appreciates. And although it works beautifully with the spoken word program, it also translates very well with musical presentations.”

The move to Vancouver presented numerous logistical challenges for sound reinforcement. The arena-style theatre consisted of a thrust stage with a 200-degree audience wrap-around and a very steep seating rake. There also needed to be almost no bleed into the microphones, as the event would be broadcast and webcast.

“The TED conference is really three events at once,” explains Nick Malgieri, who headed event audio for San Francisco-based supplier McCune Audio/Video/Lighting. “It’s a live event for a very select audience, a live TV broadcast, and a taping session for post-production. These all have to be served without compromise, and because of the wide diversity of speakers and performers, the audio system has to handle everything. Fortunately, the clinically precise coverage patterns of the Meyer Sound speakers and the flexibility of Galileo® allowed us to zone the system for perfect results.”

Sandberg and Malgieri, as well as Kurt Graffy of Arup Acoustic Consulting collaborated on system design. Four arrays of nine M’elodie loudspeakers each covered the wide seating arc, with three 700-HP subwoofers flown in a steered directional array. Fill was provided by 10 UPM-2P and six UPA-1P loudspeakers and two UPJ-1P VariO™ loudspeakers. Two UPM-2P and two UPJ-1P loudspeakers were used for monitoring and foldback, and a Galileo loudspeaker management system consisting of two Galileo 616 processors supplied system drive and optimization. System deployment was supervised by Pete Bender, technical director of McCune.

“We had some challenges this year with the new venue and a last-minute change in hang points, but with the power of MAPP Online Pro® [acoustic prediction program], everything fell into place,” says Sandberg. “It was one of the best-sounding TED conferences I’ve done. We had a number of compliments from the audience, and Sting’s engineer—who was gracious enough to let me mix the set—was very happy with how it sounded. Also, everything went up quickly and we were out of there in record time.”

Founded in 1984, TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is a global set of conferences governed by the non-profit Sapling Foundation. The annual conferences were inaugurated in Monterey, Calif. in 1990.

Refinement, redefined: Sennheiser expands studio microphone range with the MK 8

Las Vegas, April 7, 2014: At NAB Show, the world’s largest annual conference and expo for professionals who create, manage and distribute entertainment across all platforms, audio specialist Sennheiser [booth C3217] will unveil the MK 8 large-diaphragm, multi-pattern condenser studio microphone.

The new microphone features five selectable polar patterns (omni-directional, wide cardioid, cardioid, super-cardioid, figure-of-eight), a low cut/roll-off filter and selectable pad. “The MK 8 expands Sennheiser’s successful series of large-diaphragm condensers, and professional users will appreciate its versatility,” said Sebastian Schmitz, microphone product manager. “Its sound is direct and harmonious, characterized by a defined bass, beautifully rounded mids and an open treble. Overall, it has a very musical sound.”

Designed and manufactured in Germany, the MK 8 echoes the sleek design of the MK 4 studio microphone. Where the fixed cardioid MK 4 was designed for plug-and-play simplicity, the multi-pattern MK 8 offers additional control for the refined recording engineer. The new microphone features a one-inch, dual-diaphragm capsule, precisely spattered with 24-carat gold and elastically mounted to reduce structure-borne noise. In addition, a three-position filter allows the user to either eliminate low-frequency noise below 60 Hz (-18 dB/octave, low-cut position) or introduce a softer roll-off effect from 100 Hz down to compensate for the proximity effect in close miking (-6 dB/octave, roll-off position).

The MK 8 is also fitted with a switchable pad (off, -10 dB, -20 dB). A -10 dB reduction in the capsule protects against excessively loud audio sources, while an additional -10 dB reduction in the microphone electronics avoids overloads in connected mic pre-amps and subsequent recording equipment.

The five switchable pick-up patterns exhibit relatively constant characteristics, especially in the low end. This ensures better, more defined sound, as the selected pattern is maintained over frequency. For example, the super-cardioid pattern will not “blur” but remain precise, providing the same high attenuation of lateral sound sources regardless of frequency.

Encased in a sturdy metal housing, the MK 8 has relatively low sensitivity to humidity as the impedance conversion is done within the capsule. It is packaged with a microphone clip and a protective pouch, and optional accessories include an elastic suspension, a foam windshield, a pop filter and a hard case. The new MK 8 microphone will be available in late summer.

Technical data of the MK 8:

Transducer principle externally polarised condenser microphone
Diaphragm diameter 1” (25.4 mm)
Pick-up patterns omni-directional, wide cardioid, cardioid,
super-cardioid, figure-of-eight
