PIE MAN SOUND ENSURES LONGEVITY WITH 32-CHANNEL API 1608 CONSOLE

Pie_Man_SoundCARY, NORTH CAROLINA – OCTOBER 2014: Pie Man Sound opened last month in Cary, NC, – co-owners Max and Mitch Dancik were so eager to start using their 32-channel 1608 that it’s already been used to record several local projects. Mitch said the studio is already booked solid through the year with musicians from a variety of genres anxious to record. Among others, the studio is looking forward to sessions with a young jazz/rock band working on their debut album, a quartet of Mexican classical guitarists, and a quartet of classical sax players. Mitch believes the 1608 has been a huge part of Pie Man’s early success: “My standard setup allows me to switch from record to mix mode instantly. In a ‘mix as you go’ world, this capability is critical, and a very good reason for 1608 users to consider that extra sixteen tracks.”

Pie Man was designed and built from the ground up by Wes Lachot, who told the Danciks that the 1608 would take the studio from ‘great to WOW!’ “I visited various studios,” Mitch Dancik added, “including Manifold, and my ears said it was worth it. Another important consideration was reliability and maintenance. My friend Neil Steingart was an engineer at the Record Plant in NYC and he always spoke about the indestructible API console on their mobile studio truck.” While practical elements like these helped Dancik make his decision, he said, “The most important feature is the magic that the API imparts to the sound. API is one of only a few companies keeping the best of the analog technology alive and I hope consoles like the 1608 will always be available.”

The console has not only been used on a variety of projects, but also for a wide variety of technical processes. Dancik was excited to explain how multi-faceted he has found his new gear: “The 1608 is integrated with my DAW solutions, with everything going through the API on the way in and the way out. I do hybrid mixing, with fine adjustments in the box, and broad moves on the API.” His experience with API gear is not limited to his own console, though. He attended a session with producer Joe Chiccarelli at Studio La Fabrique, “and every time he got frustrated with a piece of malfunctioning outboard gear, he’d switch to an equivalent piece of 500 series gear in an API lunchbox he had brought along. The API gear always worked as expected. I told Joe I was considering a 1608 for a new studio, and he said ‘go for it!’”

PANORAMIC HOUSE CELEBRATES ITS FIRST YEAR WITH GREAT OCEAN VIEWS AND AN API 1608

Baccigaluppi_PanoramicHouseWEST MARIN, CALIFORNIA – OCTOBER 2014: Panoramic House is a personal recording studio and vacation home owned by John Baccigaluppi and Bobby Lurie, located on the western Marin coast north of San Francisco. The duo, who own and operate studios on both the east and west coasts (The Dock in Sacramento, CA and Mavericks in NYC), renovated the historic 1960s structure, which was built entirely from recycled architectural materials salvaged from the Bay Area. Now, Panoramic House is celebrating its first year of operation with equipment relocated from Baccigaluppi’s former recording studio, The Hangar, which includes his recently-expanded API 1608.

When the five-year-old 1608 moved to Panoramic House, it was expanded to 32 channels to accommodate the studio’s 16- and 24-track analog tape decks. “With more analog tracks, we needed more console real estate,” said Baccigaluppi. “The 1608 has served me very well. I love that it has the same API circuitry that runs its large-format consoles. Eight aux sends and eight groups paired with the modular 500-series slots make it a very versatile board. We have a lot of EQ flavors, including a handful of API 550A’s, 550b’s, and 560′s.”

Baccigaluppi’s familiarity with API equipment is a contributing factor to what has made the 1608 the heart of the new studio. “Panoramic House is definitely analog-centric,” he said. “The first console I ever worked on was an API 2488 at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, and I love that the 1608 continues in that tradition. Moreover, clients are always impressed. API is a trusted name in the industry.”

Panoramic House has already been host to several big-name indie bands, including My Morning Jacket, Band of Horses, and Thee Oh Sees. With the first year behind them, Baccigaluppi and Lurie are looking forward to the fall and winter in Stinson Beach and Bolinas. “It’s funny,” Baccigaluppi said, “that most of the vacation renters come to town during the summer when it’s foggy to the point that you feel like you’re in a cloud. But that’s when people take vacations, I guess. Conveniently, most musicians are touring during the summer. The other three seasons are lovely, and that’s when most musicians want to settle in and create. Plus, that’s when the surfing is the best!”

KBZK and KXLF Replace Microwave Truck with JVC GY-HM650 ProHD Mobile News Cameras

WAYNE, NJ – JVC Professional Video, a division of JVCKENWOOD USA Corporation, today announced KBZK and KXLF, the CBS affiliates serving Montana’s Butte-Bozeman market (DMA #188), are using four JVC GY-HM650 ProHD mobile news cameras for ENG live shots on their nightly newscasts. Engineer Michael Regan said the JVC cameras have essentially replaced the station’s microwave truck for live shots, because they are more versatile and cost effective.

Considered part of the same broadcast market, the two cities are about 90 miles apart and have very different audiences, according to Bryan Zehntner, technicalKBZK JVC Camera Use director. Owned by Cordillera KBZK JVC Camera UseCommunications, KBZK (Bozeman) and KXLF (Butte) share a studio in Bozeman and produce separate evening newscasts for each station. The stations share a 90-minute morning news program as well as weekend evening newscasts.

The region’s mountainous terrain is a challenge for microwave – Regan said the station’s microwave truck requires four hops just to get a signal from Butte back to Bozeman, and it is not always possible to get line of sight to transmit. Plus, almost every reporter is a multimedia journalist working individually to report and edit stories, but the microwave truck requires at least a two-man crew. “We have a lot more live shots now that we have these cameras,” he said. “We use them all the time.”

Zehntner estimated the stations now produce at least two or three live shots per week, compared to two or three live shots per month when the microwave truck was the primary source for live shots. The facility is equipped with two Teradek decoders to process incoming live video from the JVC cameras, which allowed two reporters to deliver live standups during the same newscast from different stages at the Montana Folk Festival in Butte in July. “The cameras work great in low-light situations,” Zehntner added.

While the stations have mobile hotspots for their cameras, Wi-Fi is usually the better option for streaming live video in the region, so each camera is equipped with a Buffalo wireless USB adapter. “There are plenty of places we can’t make a phone call, let alone stream video,” Zehntner explained. “If we are outside in a clear area where a festival or something is taking place, then we will probably have decent cell service and can use the My-Fi card. When we are in downtown Bozeman, Verizon only has marginal service. Most places either have Wi-Fi and will let us access it to do the shot, or have a guest network that is stable enough to use.”

The stations began using the new JVC mobile news cameras in February, replacing some of their aging Panasonic P2 camcorders. The rest of the Panasonic camcorder fleet will be replaced with JVC cameras in 2015. According to Regan, the new JVC cameras are an early step in a transition to full HD production, which is expected to be complete next spring. “It’s a good, solid ENG camera,” he said. “It provides exactly what we need, and the live streaming is a big advantage.”

New 3.7mm bezel models make award-winning Clarity Matrix the most comprehensive line of video wall displays in the market

Control room mappingPORTLAND, Ore., October 21, 2014 – Planar Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: PLNR), a global leader in display and digital signage technology, today announced two new ultra-narrow bezel LCD models in its line of Clarity™ Matrix LCD Video Wall System with G2 Architecture, bringing superior visual performance to an even wider variety of video wall applications.

The two new Clarity Matrix with G2 Architecture options include a 46” model with 800 nits brightness and a 55” model with 500 nits brightness. The new models feature a tiled bezel width of just 3.7mm (0.15 inches) between adjacent LCD displays for a near-seamless image.  In addition to the new offerings, Planar has also extended video and power transmission capabilities on its entire family of Clarity Matrix LCD Video Wall models to support distances of 500 feet (150 meters).

Earlier this year, Planar set new technological benchmarks with the introduction of its new G2 Architecture for the Clarity Matrix LCD Video Wall family, as well as its first LED LCD video wall model with a tiled bezel width of 3.7 mm.

‘Reliable, Rugged and Feature-Rich’ Symetrix DSPs Revamp Grand Casino Audio

Grand Casino Mille Lacs in Minnesota, USA, has been equipped with multiple Symetrix processors as part of an extensive audio upgrade.

MINNESOTA, USA: Digital signal processing solutions from Symetrix helped design and integration firm Excel AV Group to achieve its largest DSP installation to date at Grand Casino Mille Lacs recently. The system at the Minnesota, USA, entertainment complex features no fewer than 36 inputs and 28 outputs.

As company president Kevin Crow recalls, the venue operators “began looking at upgrading the sound for the main ballroom and smaller adjoining meeting rooms in February 2014. The main challenges were that they did not have a very good main PA, their control system was difficult to use, and patching was difficult.”

Flexible and easy-to-use processing was a priority, and Excel AV’s research quickly led them to investigate the possibility of deploying two Symetrix SymNet Radius open architecture Dante-scalable DSPs. “The Radius units are so powerful and with Dante capability the networking is just amazing. Also, we had already deployed them successfully on a number of projects,” says Crow.

The final Symetrix installation – comprising two Radius 12×8 DSPs along with one Axiomtek GOT-5152T-830-J touch panel controller, one xIn 12 input expander and two xOut 12 output expanders – allows staff to effortlessly combine and un-combine ballroom sound. Eight wireless mic channels can be patched to any room or zone via a wireless tablet loaded with Symetrix SymVue control software. Crow notes: “It’s now super-easy for a user to control volume for individual mics or to change room configurations and/or patching.”

For Excel AV Group, the Grand Casino installation is only the latest in a long sequence of projects for which Symetrix DSPs have proven to be ideally suited. “We love the pro-audio EQ offerings that Symetrix has in its software, and we use Symetrix for our pro-audio rigs all the time without hesitation,” says Crow.

Shure wireless microphones, Danley Sound Labs mains loudspeakers and JBL distributed speakers were also selected during an installation that has met with a wholly positive reaction from casino personnel. “They have encountered no issues running the system, which sounds fantastic for all types of entertainment, from regional acts to comedians and much more besides,” says Crow. “Reliable, rugged and feature-rich, the Symetrix products are integral to the installation and we could not be more pleased with their performance.”

The Esfera surround microphone system:

The Esfera system consists of the SPM 8000 two-channel microphone unit and the SPB 8000 processing unit. The microphone unit features the typical advantages of RF condenser microphones: natural and detailed sound, transparency, ruggedness and high resistance to adverse climatic conditions. The processing unit uses an algorithm perfectly matched to the microphones to generate a 5.1 surround signal with sampling rates of up to 96 kHz. An integrated compressor ensures a broadcast-friendly signal. For ease of operation, the processing unit uses four directly selectable presets. These can be modified via an Ethernet interface to adapt to local conditions, including the settings for the gain of the individual channels, front and surround focus, surround delay, rotation, filters and cut-off frequencies, compressor, make up gain, output gain, limiter and windshield compensation.

The HD8 DJ:

HD8 DJ_sideBuilding on the legacy of its iconic HD 25 DJ headphones, which have been used by the world’s leading music producers and DJs for 25 years, the HD8 DJ headphones are designed for the most demanding users and punishing professional environments.
