Pixcom Installs Matrox Avio KVM Extenders to Facilitate Workstation Centralization Outside of Production Studios

Matrox fiber-optic KVM extenders provide real-time control while eliminating system background noise and heat in video editing studios

Matrox® Graphics Inc. today announced production company Groupe Pixcom Inc. has successfully installed Matrox Avio F120 fiber-optic KVM extenders, which have been running flawlessly since day one. Pixcom has eliminated system background noise and heat in their video editing studios by centralizing systems in a separate machine room with Avio transmitter/receiver pairs, letting video editors maintain real-time control over high-resolution dual-display desktops and peripherals.

Matrox Avio at Pixcom Studio

Moving into new offices, Pixcom required new fiber-optic KVM extenders to securely centralize high-performance workstations up to 100 meters from their video editing studios. Pixcom chose Avio over competitors for its comprehensive feature set, including zero-latency 10Gbps transmission over a single fiber-optic cable. Ease of integration, supported distance (10 km or 6.2 mi), 4K-readiness, and a compact, rack-mountable design also factored into Pixcom’s decision.

“By meeting all of our extension needs in a single box connected by a single fiber-optic cable, Avio let us reduce clutter in the workspace and cut down on the wiring required,” said Dominic Gagné, a member of Pixcom’s technical services team. “Avio is a robust technology we can rely on… to the point where we can even forget it’s there!”

Emmy Award-Winning Studio Works Mouseless, Keyboardless with Yamaha NUAGE

Jereco Studios and Yamaha NUAGE

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Jereco Studios is located in Bozeman, Montana, a small town located outside of Yellowstone National Park, and home to a unique, dense film and music community. The four-time Emmy® award-winning, commercial sound recording studio offers sync-to-film ADR and voice-over recordings with remote link up via ISDN or SourceConnect. Jereco is equipped for 5.1 and 7.1 Digital Surround Sound, Dolby E, DTS, and many other formats. In addition, the studio provides a full line of quality live sound reinforcement services and equipment rental packages.

Jeremiah Slovarp, producer/engineer and President of Jereco Studios, has been working up until now on a Yamaha 02R96v2. In early 2013, he began searching for a new, modern work surface. “Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems had posted its first NUAGE photos and articles on their web site, and I knew this system was what I was looking for,” states Slovarp. I admit, I miss the old console, but am moving ahead with the new Yamaha NUAGE. The 02R96 still works after almost 14 years, which is a real testament to Yamaha’s design and build quality.”

“In the fall of 2013, the Club Cubase newsletter announced NUAGE would be on display with technical and sales team members from Yamaha present at Poll Sound in Salt Lake, Utah, Slovarp says. It was too late for me to book a flight, so I drove the seven hours from Bozeman to Salt Lake the night before so I could be the first one at Poll Sound the following morning. I was met on demo day by the Poll Sound staff and Yamaha’s Chris Hinson and Randy Weitzel. Because I was early that morning, I had the console to myself for a good two hours while Chris and the Poll Sound staff took turns showing me around and answering questions.”

JeremiahMixingNuage

Before he left Montana, Slovarp packed up a few projects to use as workflow samples on the demo NUAGE at Poll Sound. “I think this was a great experiment and gave me the opportunity to work on the console with my own work and workflow preferences. I was particularly impressed that Chris was taking notes on my hiccups and recommendations, and passed those notes on to the NUAGE development team, some of which have shown up in the latest software updates. The integration of my existing workflow into a new platform that felt so much like my natural workspace in Nuendo really was seamless. The deep integration and control of the DAW on the console is truly complete and unique.”

Slovarp has been using Nuendo 2 since 2002, keeping up with every revision and update. He said the most important thing he appreciates about NUAGE is that it has enabled him to put down the keyboard and mouse. “I feel like I can get back to mixing, pushing faders, turning knobs, and just working on a creative console. After an eight or ten hour day, my hands would be in pain from all the manual movements I had to make being dependent on mouse editing and clicking. With the advent of all the cool and amazing new digital DAW based mixing tools and equipment, I think the industry, in general, has regressed from the art of mixing and working with consoles and large format hardware. But with NUAGE, I appreciate the deliberate move Yamaha has made to enable engineers to get back to mixing and editing as an art form.”

OneRepublic FOH Engineer Solves Live Recording Challenge With Sonnet Fusion F3 RAID Storage System

System’s High Capacity and Its Rugged and Vibration-Proof Design Enable Recording of 112 Tracks at 96kHz for Future Re-use and Virtual Sound Checks

IRVINE, Calif. — Nov. 11, 2014 – Sonnet Technologies today announced that its rugged and portable Fusion(TM) F3 two-drive RAID storage system is enabling a live recording workflow for OneRepublic’s current “Native” tour. With the ability to store up to 6TB of content on dual shock-isolated hard drives, the Fusion F3 reliably captures more than 100 tracks of audio from the band’s nightly performances, recorded at 96kHz resolution.

OneRepublic is beginning the third European leg of its “Native” tour, which began almost two years ago and so far has visited close to 200 venues in Europe and North America. Like any high-profile touring musical act, OneRepublic needs the ability to make a high-fidelity recording of each performance — both to create an archive for future recordings and live releases, and to enable the band to perform virtual sound checks. However, the OneRepublic sound crew was challenged to find a high-capacity storage solution that could stand up to the rigors of touring, as well as the extensive vibration created by OneRepublic’s characteristic low-end-heavy sound.

“Until we discovered the Fusion F3, we had tried several other external storage solutions. As soon as the bass sounds began to crank up, other units would just freeze. It was very frustrating to produce a great show and not be able to record it because the hard drive couldn’t keep up,” said Zito, the renowned front-of-house (FOH) engineer for OneRepublic and owner/operator of Zito Production Services. “Whether it’s rack-mounted or simply sitting on top of a hollow touring case, which can amplify the vibration, Sonnet Technologies’ Fusion F3 is able to handle the very large track count at 96k and the extreme bass energy without missing a beat. The Fusion F3 is an invaluable asset to our operation.”

To produce each OneRepublic performance, Zito uses the state-of-the-art DiGiCo SD7 audio mixing consoles, which together provide the necessary inputs and outputs to support the required 112 channels at 96k. For live recording, two DiGiGrid MGB MADI interfaces convert the MADI output to a network signal for input to a MacBook Pro(R) running Cubase recording software. A Thunderbolt(TM) chassis receives the recorded output via a Thunderbolt connection from the computer and converts it through a Thunderbolt-to-eSATA adapter, which in turn connects to one of the four interface options on the Fusion F3. Configured in RAID 0 mode, the storage system is able to sustain transfer rates of up to 200 MB/s, and its 6TB of memory means that Zito is able to record two to three nights of performances before having to transfer the content to secondary drives.

Each of the Fusion F3′s drives is mounted on its own multi-axis shock/vibration isolation sled to virtually eliminate vibration-related problems such as missed seek operations and cross-coupled vibration. Coupled with the system’s rugged aluminum and steel outer case construction, this configuration protects the drives and ensures reliable operation.

For a virtual sound check, the DiGiGrid MGB console receives recorded content back from the Fusion F3 via MADI. A relatively new concept, the virtual sound check is a powerful capability for large touring productions that change venues almost daily. By playing back the recording of the previous night’s performance, Zito can work with the band to fine-tune the mixing console settings for the next show and produce the ideal sound for each venue. The approach saves time and increases accuracy because the performance recording is the best source material available short of the actual performance.

“Virtual sound checks were unfathomable 10 years ago, but they are becoming more and more in demand by artists as a way to make sure that FOH is translating the performance correctly to the audience,” Zito said. “Of course, it’s imperative to have a reliable recording system to accomplish this; we would not be able to do it without the Fusion F3.”

“As FOH engineer for one of the top touring bands in the music industry, Zito is also one of the most dedicated. His commitment to ensuring that OneRepublic’s music is presented to the audience as the band intends it, by using only best-of-breed tools, is evident in the quality of each show,” said Greg LaPorte, vice president of sales and marketing at Sonnet Technologies. “The OneRepublic tour is exactly the type of application for which we designed the Fusion F3, and we are glad the system meets the band’s requirements for durability, reliability, recording capacity, and quality.”

New York, November 11, 2014:Adder Technology, the industry leader in high performance keyboard, video and mouse (KVM) products, today announced that Illumination Entertainment has deployed the AdderLink Infinity to help address their increase in production due in part to the enormous success of the Despicable Me franchise.

After researching the KVM options available on the market to address their problem, Illumination Entertainment looked to Adder to address their connectivity challenges.

“Using the AdderLink Infinity products, our editors are now able to setup for dailies or a review session on their Avid systems in their edit bay and then bring up that system in the review suite without interrupting any other sessions,” said Joe Stevano, Illumination Entertainment, IT director. “Adding Adder’s digital KVM switching solution to our editorial infrastructure has given us increased flexibility in working on multiple productions.”

“The post production environment has always been an ideal environment for the deployment of our IP-based high performance KVM solutions,” said Tim Conway, vice president, Adder Corp. “We are pleased to have worked with the Illumination Entertainment team and succeeded in addressing their workflow challenges.   The AdderLink Infinity solution also positions the company for future scalability and upgradability in production capacity.”

Engineer Eric Masip Adds HARMAN Soundcraft Vi1 To His Mobile Inventory

Scraft_EricMasipLLEIDA, Spain – Providing audio services for concerts, theater events and conferences, freelance engineer Eric Masip recently acquired a HARMAN Soundcraft Vi1 digital console to streamline his services into a compact but powerful mixing package. While supporting several live production companies, Masip uses his Vi1 for multiple situations, including monitors mixing, FOH mixing and live recording. The console was sold to Masip by Vtecnics En Ruta, through EARPRO, Soundcraft’s distributor in Spain and Portugal.

With a versatile audio background, Masip wanted a new digital console that would complement his jack-of-all-trades work ethic. To that end, he relied on his previous experience with Soundcraft Vi Series consoles. With the Vi1, he gained the flexibility of a compact console, and the power of MADI protocols to distribute audio signals to other interfaces.

“Since I have previously worked with the Soundcraft Vi6, I am convinced that the Soundcraft brand is better for me than all of the others that I have tried,” said Masip. “A freelance engineer like myself needs something portable enough to carry to shows, but also something powerful enough to provide quality services. Ultimately, I was impressed by the compact dimensions, clean interface, good sound and elegant design of the Vi1.”

With BSS EQ’s, Lexicon effects and Soundcraft FaderGlowTM illumination, the Vi1 console offers comprehensive mixing capabilities despite it being the smallest product in the Vi Series. Many engineers recognize a Soundcraft console by its intuitive layout and design, but the improved workflow is especially important for those that wear as many hats as Masip.

“The sound is really brilliant and clear, and it performs great with many of the top bands, but it’s the workflow that is truly amazing, offering me a lot of possibilities during a show.” said Masip. “The combination of the touchscreen and the vertical organization gives the console an analog-like feel, allowing me to operate very quickly, and the FaderGlow function is an excellent addition.”

HARMAN (www.harman.com) designs, manufactures and markets premier audio, visual, infotainment and enterprise automation solutions for the automotive, consumer and professional markets. With leading brands including AKG®, Harman Kardon®, Infinity®, JBL®, Lexicon®, Mark Levinson ® and Revel®, the Company is admired by audiophiles, musicians and the entertainment venues where they perform. More than 25 million automobiles on the road today are equipped with HARMAN audio and infotainment systems. HARMAN has a workforce of approximately 16,600 people across the Americas, Europe, and Asia and reported sales of $5.6 billion for the 12 months ended September 30, 2014.
