Renkus-Heinz and First Baptist Church of Shawnee – Keeping Tradition Alive

 Shawnee, OK – November 2014… Shawnee’s First Baptist Church was founded in 1892, 15 years before Oklahoma gained statehood. After their main sanctuary was damaged by a tornado in the 1930s, the church rebuilt, and that structure serves as the main sanctuary to this day.

While the historic building has been well maintained over the years, its aging sound system had not been so fortunate. Church officials and congregation members alike were increasingly frustrated by intelligibility issues in the main sanctuary, and inconsistent coverage in the balcony and under balcony areas. The church turned to Edmond, OK-based AVL Systems Design, who recommended the steered-beam technology of Renkus Heinz ICONYX IC Live.

“The main sanctuary seats about 800 people, and has a balcony area in the rear,” explains Danny Nix of AVL Systems. “In addition to the intelligibility and coverage problems with the old system, there were reflection issues that needed to be addressed.”

 The new system comprises four ICONYX IC Live ICL-FR-DUAL columns, hung from the ceiling to avoid damaging the walls. “We used the IC Live’s beam steering capabilities to fill the balcony and the main floor of the church and we used four Renkus Heinz PNX61 Two-Way Complex Conic Loudspeaker Systems for under balcony coverage,” said Nix. “The IC Live’s beam steering technology eliminated the need for front fills, which made for a cleaner look overall. As a final touch, we painted the boxes to match the color of the walls.”

In the end, church officials were pleased that the ICONYX system not only addressed the sanctuary’s intelligibility and coverage issues, but also blended in seamlessly with the décor as well.

“Everyone at the church has been very happy with the results,” said Nix.

Pioneering American Sound Artist Bill Fontana Chooses Meyer Sound for Immersive Exhibit Sonic Mappings at Rome MAXXI Museum

sonic mappingsAmerican sound artist Bill Fontana has partnered with Meyer Sound in the creation of—Sonic Mappings—a permanent sound art installation for Rome’s MAXXI Museum. Fontana’s musical landscape pays tribute to Rome’s Acqua Vergine, the ancient waterway that is at the heart and soul of Roman civilization. Sonic Mappings is the centerpiece of Open Museum Open City, the museum’s latest exhibition dedicated to sound, which MAXXI Artistic Director Hou Hanru describes as “the most radical and experimental aspect of contemporary art.”

Undertaking an ambitious artistic journey, Fontana travelled the path of the Acqua Vergine from the source springs at Salone to the ancient tunnels still in existence under the streets of Rome.  By using microphones, hydrophones, and accelerometers—some placed in the water flow and some imbedded into walls—Fontana captured the diversity and full range of sonic impact and acoustic resonance. From these source recordings, Fontana created a musical composition suffused with the acoustic, harmonic, and rhythmical qualities of the water, lending a perfect complement to the sensual undulating curves of the architecture by Zaha Hadid.

Sonic Mappings connects listeners to what I think of as the acoustic soul of Rome—the sound of water ebbing and flowing through the city’s ancient aqueducts,” says Fontana. “After decades of creating sound sculptures, I have learned that creating a sense of immersion in a multi-dimensional soundscape can only be achieved using the most accurate audio technology. Without it, the listener’s illusion will break down. This is why the partnership with Meyer Sound is so critical for the Sonic Mappings experience.”

A long-time user of Meyer Sound technology, Fontana worked with Scott George of Autograph Sound to create the soundscape using two of Meyer Sound’s most powerful creative tools: SpaceMap® multichannel surround panning, which gives the designer a flexible tool to fly sounds through space, and the D-Mitri® digital audio platform, which provides the signal processing and distribution backbone for the sonic immersion. For reinforcement, Fontana specified MM-4XP self-powered loudspeakers to ensure the intricate detail of the sculpture is projected with utmost clarity and impact.

In addition to the permanently installed Sonic Mappings, Meyer Sound systems play a key role in the aural transformation of three other showpieces by artists including Philippe Rahm and Justin Bennett, who combine to deploy 82 MM-4XP loudspeakers in their exhibits. For Italian artist Francesco Fonassi, eight UPM-1P loudspeakers and two USW-1P subwoofers are implemented. Equipment support is provided by Carlo Volpe of Fox Sound Service and Linear Sound.

An internationally acclaimed artist, Fontana has created sound sculptures that have changed the perceptions of visual and architectural spaces around the world since the 1970s. Meyer Sound has played a central role in many of his projects, including exhibits at the Tate Modern in London, SFMOMA in California, Madison Square Park in New York City, and the Imperial War Museum in the UK. He has also done major radio sound art projects for the BBC, the European Broadcast Union, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, National Public Radio, West German Radio (WDR), Swedish Radio, Radio France, and the Austrian State Radio. Fontana was recently honored with a Golden Nica celebrating Lifetime Achievement from the Prix Ars Electronica.

Tackling Audio in a Big Tent: Meyer Sound LYON Immerses VIPs at University of Oregon Fundraiser

u of oregonThe University of Oregon recently kicked off its $2 billion fundraising campaign with an AV spectacular under a massive tent, widely known to be a difficult setting to achieve quality sound. With the power and clarity of a Meyer Sound LYON™ linear sound reinforcement system, the audio team overcame the event’s technical complexities and offered a sonic experience that was both clear and immersive.

Even coverage is generally difficult to achieve in a tent due to its imbalanced effects on different frequencies. “The acoustic challenges of a big tent were further complicated in this case because the stage was placed in the center splitting up the audience, with video screens on all sides,” says sound designer Don Ross. “Also, there was no truss work over the stage to fly arrays, so we had to cover over 100 feet from the stage in both directions with ground-stacked speakers.”

George Relles Sound of Eugene, Ore. provided sound design support using the Meyer Sound MAPP Online Pro® acoustical prediction program. He determined that the best solution for the 260-by-150-foot tent was four arrays of one LYON-W wide-coverage and three LYON-M main line array loudspeakers each. Two 1100-LFC low-frequency control elements provided low end, with four UPM-1P loudspeakers for on-stage foldback. System drive and optimization was provided by a Galileo® Callisto™ loudspeaker management system with one Galileo Callisto 616 array processor.

The result was exceptional audio for all event programs, which included live music, speeches, and video soundtracks showcasing high-impact effects created by Ross. “Sonically as well as visually, the whole experience was fantastic,” says Michael Hull of AHM Brands, executive producer of the event on behalf of the university’s Office of Development. “Given all the complexities, we couldn’t have been happier. The sound from LYON was flawless, and fully contributed to the impact of the 360-degree immersive environment. Afterwards, we received a number of compliments on quality and clarity of the audio program.”

Ross adds: “The sound of LYON was very impressive. Speech articulation was excellent, and the coverage was great. Also, the wide-dispersion LYON-W loudspeakers on the bottom eliminated the need for front fills. And by reversing the polarity of the two opposing systems, we created an effective null on the stage that prevented feedback problems.”

For the post-program cocktail hour, a performance by jazz vocalist Halie Loren was reinforced by two UPJ-1P VariO™ loudspeakers, one 700-HP subwoofer, eight MJF-210 stage monitors, and a Galileo loudspeaker management system with one Galileo 616 processor. Outside the tent, a 150-foot long video projection screen greeted the VIPs as they walked in, with audio accompaniment by two UPJunior™ VariO™ loudspeakers.

Other equipment provided by Relles included Soundcraft Vi6 and Vi1 digital consoles at the main and cocktail stages, respectively; Sennheiser and Shure wireless microphone systems equipped with DPA d:facto II, Neumann KMS 105, and Shure KSM9 handheld capsules; and DPA d:fine 4066 headset microphones.

Warner Bros. De Lane Lea Turns To Meyer Sound for Dolby Atmos Upgrade

wb de lane leaWarner Bros. De Lane Lea, one of the world’s premier sound post-production facilities, has added 24 additional Meyer Sound cinema loudspeakers to its primary mixing stage as part of a recent upgrade to Dolby Atmos. The newly outfitted Stage 1 is central London’s largest stage and also its first to offer this format. It has been booked for the mixing of major feature films since re-opening.

Stage 1′s proven track record using the Meyer Sound 7.1 cinema system since its installation in 2010 meant that the natural choice for expansion was the selection of additional Meyer Sound components to meet the rigorous requirements of the Dolby Atmos format.

“Dolby Atmos places intensive demands on the monitoring system,” notes Chris Burdon, staff re-recording mixer at Warner Bros. De Lane Lea. “Replaying full-range audio across the entire surround array at high levels, while maintaining accuracy, is a new challenge. Fortunately, we’ve found that the Meyer Sound system provides the necessary audio fidelity and output power to mix confidently in Atmos. The traditional Meyer strong points of smooth frequency response and spatial accuracy really come into their own in helping to create a continuous sound space.”

The complete Stage 1 monitoring system is anchored by three Acheron® 80 and three Acheron LF screen channel loudspeakers, one of each paired to receive a separate channel. Atmos surround sound is provided by 12 HMS-10, 10 HMS-12, and 10 HMS-5 surround loudspeakers, while five X-800C high-power cinema subwoofers in front and two X-400C cinema subwoofers in the rear provide low end. A Galileo® loudspeaker management system with one Galileo 408 processor supplies system drive and optimization.

“In our most recent feature film mix, the main setting for the characters needs a wide, surround-heavy soundscape to really immerse the audience,” explains Burdon. “The 360-degree sound image was well controlled, allowing the story to be told without distracting the viewer from the narrative.”

Burdon notes that Dolby Atmos soundtracks “often involve high sound pressure levels, but the Meyer monitoring helps keep ear fatigue to a minimum.”

Stage 1 at Warner Bros. De Lane Lea offers a seven-meter screen, an 80-fader AMS Neve DFC Gemini digital mixing console, seven Pro Tools HDX systems for playback and recording, and film and 2K 3D digital projection.

In addition to Stage 1, Meyer Sound cinema systems are installed in two other Dolby-certified mix stages at Warner Bros. De Lane Lea. The facility offers a fourth mix stage that features Dolby Atmos Home Theatre monitoring, two ADR stages, a 37-seat screening theatre with 4k 3D digital projection, and 51 cutting rooms.

From Hockey Games to Nobel Conference, Meyer Sound IntelligentDC Gives Gustavus Adolphus College Arena a Sonic Advantage

adolphus collegeWith its new Meyer Sound system featuring IntelligentDC™ technology, Gustavus Adolphus College in Minnesota is fully equipped to provide exceptional audio coverage for every function in its 1,500-capacity Lund Arena. These events range from hockey games to national programs such as the Nobel Conference®, the first ongoing educational conference in the United States to have the official authorization of the Nobel Foundation in Stockholm, Sweden.

“With the Meyer Sound system, we have controlled and uniform sound everywhere, with ample full-bandwidth power and exceptional speech intelligibility,” says Matt Dobosenki, the college’s event technical services coordinator. “With the old system, the sound would build up, overexcite the room and lose coherence. Now it’s clean and has plenty of punch, but it’s never overbearing.”

The solution selected for the arena is a remotely powered system featuring IntelligentDC, the Meyer Sound technology that combines the performance advantages of self-powered loudspeakers with the installation efficiency of Class 2 wiring. A single, five-conductor cable carries remote power and balanced audio signal to the loudspeakers from a rack-mount power supply and signal distribution unit. In the US and many other countries, electric conduit is not required.

“IntelligentDC technology is ideal for this application,” explains Jon Young, CEO of Bloomington, Minn.-based Heroic Productions, who provided and installed the sound system. “We can provide the sound quality you can only get from a self-powered, bi-amplified system, but we don’t need 60 new AC runs up on the roof beams. And with individual control of each speaker, we have total flexibility in zoning the system and balancing the levels. And if the operators want to turn the volume up in the student section twice as loud as the parent section, that’s easily done.”

The Meyer Sound models chosen for the audio upgrade include 19 UPM-1XP loudspeakers spaced over the ice floor, 20 UPJunior-XP VariO™ loudspeakers covering the spectator stands, and 16 UMS-1XP subwoofers for full-range musical punch, while eight UP-4XP loudspeakers cover an adjacent hallway. Handling system drive, optimization, and zoning is a Galileo® loudspeaker management system with two Galileo 616 processors.

In early October, the Lund Arena hosted the 50th Nobel Conference, authorized by the same foundation that grants Nobel Prizes. The two-day event presented 11 noted leaders in the sciences and humanities from around the world, including three Nobel laureates.

Georgia’s Free Chapel Expands to New Gwinnett Campus with Meyer Sound MINA

free chapelFree Chapel in Georgia has opened a new satellite campus in Gwinnett with a Meyer Sound MINA™ line array loudspeaker system in its 900-capacity auditorium. The facility is the ministry’s second venue to deploy Meyer Sound, following the success with a CQ-2 and MSL-4 loudspeaker system on its main campus in Gainesville.

“Our Gwinnett auditorium is easily one of the best-sounding rooms I’ve heard in a long time in terms of coverage smoothness,” says Michael Henson, technical director for Free Chapel. “The spoken word clarity is outstanding. We get a straight unprocessed audio feed of Pastor Franklin’s voice, and we’ve found that we have to do almost nothing on the console to make it sound great in the room. The clarity and presence of the MINA system create an optimum environment for worship by producing a sound that’s immersive, but never distracting.”

The auditorium has installed dual arrays of eight MINA loudspeakers each, six 700-HP subwoofers, two UPJ-1P VariO™ loudspeakers for side fill, and eight UPM-2P loudspeakers for front fill and recessed stage monitors. A Galileo® Callisto™ loudspeaker management system with two Galileo Callisto 616 array processors provides system drive and alignment.

Audio quality is critical at Free Chapel in part because Pastor Jentezen Franklin is both an inspiring speaker and accomplished saxophonist. “He has a trained musician’s ear, and after walking the room front to back and side to side for the first time, he was very pleased with what he’d heard, as we all were,” reports Henson.

Outside of the auditorium, the café, bookstore, and entryway areas feature 44 Stella-8C installation loudspeakers. Also implemented are several loudspeaker models with IntelligentDC™, the Meyer Sound technology that combines self-powered advantages with easy installation. The IntelligentDC systems installed in these areas are four MM-4XP self-powered loudspeakers and one MM-10XP and two UMS-1XP subwoofers. All systems were designed and installed by Moyers Group.

“A high priority for this church is that anybody attending—whether in the main auditorium or the overflow areas—should experience the same high level of audio quality,” says Jeremy Moyers, president of Moyers Group.

Moyers Group also supplied dual DiGiCo SD10 digital consoles for FOH and monitors, an Optocore digital snake system, Sennheiser 2000 series wireless IEM and microphone systems, and Shure P6HW wired personal body pack receivers.

The Gwinnett facility is the newest satellite campus of Free Chapel, a fast-growing ministry led by Senior Pastor Jentezen Franklin. The main Gainesville campus’s CQ-2 and MSL-4 loudspeaker system was recently boosted with six 1100-LFC low-frequency control elements.

FSR Marks Ten-Year Commitment With Local “Backpacks 4 Kids” Program

Manufacturer Heads Back to School Once Again with United Way’s Long-Running School Supply Program

Woodland Park, NJ – FSR, a Passaic County-based manufacturer of products for the audio / video, education, hospitality, government, and religious markets, has reached a 10-year milestone in its support of the local community by once again partnering with United Way of Passaic County for the highly successful “Backpacks 4 Kids” program. Regionally, this is the largest initiative of its kind in the region. By donating essential school supplies, such as 50 backpacks filled with notebooks, pens, pencils, erasers and crayons, along with 50 lunch boxes, FSR joins other local businesses and the United Way of Passaic County in their efforts to help more than 900 local students with the essential school supplies they need for the school year ahead.

Part of a greater United Way initiative and a combined effort between area businesses, the “Backpacks 4 Kids” mission is to send students back to school in the Fall equipped with the tools they need to succeed.

“Looking back now, it’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 years since we first started participating in this extremely important program,” said Jan Sandri, FSR’s president. “FSR has always been and remains an active member of the Passaic County community and our participation in this outstanding program is just one example of our local commitment. We are truly honored to be able to help properly prepare our local kids for the new school year.”

“It is our belief that every child, no matter their background, can thrive if they have the proper tools to support their educational goals,” said Yvonne Zuidema, CEO/President of the United Way of Passaic County. “Education is crucial if our children are going to reach their life’s goals and objectives; how else can they create successful careers for themselves? With the contributions and generous support of our local residents and businesses, such as Jan Sandri and her team at FSR, we are able to start developing today the community leaders of tomorrow.”
