Priced at just $995 US, it provides these two independent modes in an integrated unit. From any HDMI input source such as a camera or switcher, Matrox Monarch HD generates an H.264-encoded stream compliant with RTSP or RTMP protocol. While encoding the video at bitrates suitable for live streaming, Matrox Monarch HD simultaneously records a high-quality MP4 or MOV file to an SD card, a USB drive, or a network-mapped drive. Matrox Monarch HD is remotely controlled using any computer or mobile device with a web browser. The new Monarch SDK, an HTTP-based API, includes documentation and sample code that let AV and broadcast equipment developers write applications to configure and control Monarch HD streaming capabilities, giving them a very straightforward way to include a high quality webcasting service as part of their overall product offerings.

VS4Recorder — Multi-Camera Recording App
VS4Recorder™ is a standalone multi-camera recording app bundled with Matrox VS4 quad HD capture cards at no additional cost. VS4Recorder gives live event producers complete independent control over capture of the four inputs connected to the VS4 to create files for use with popular editing apps from Adobe, Apple and Avid and for archiving. AVI files can be created using the high-quality Matrox MPEG 2 I-Frame codec. MOV QuickTime files can be created using DV, DVCPRO, DVCPRO50 and DVCPRO HD. New features include gang recording of an unlimited number of video sources, an H.264 codec with MOV or MP4 file wrapping so that files can be immediately available for upload to the internet; DirectShow filters for developers to incorporate VS4 functionality in their own applications; event markers for Adobe Premiere CC so that while recording, users can highlight moments of interest for quicker post-event editing; and settings for capture duration and file switching without frame loss.

Matrox MicroQuad — Multiviewer
Matrox MicroQuad is a four-channel SDI-to-HDMI multiviewer for 3G/HD/SD at a breakthrough price. It lets broadcasters and A/V professionals use an affordable HDMI display to view up to four SDI video signals and show or hide labels and VU meters.

SSL Live Console on the Road with Flogging Molly’s GREEN 17 TOUR

“Bar none, it’s the best digital console on the market”

LOS ANGELES - When an analogue stalwart front-of-house engineer who’s known to eschew digital consoles finally finds one that meets his standards it’s a milestone. Flogging Molly is named for their inauspicious start playing Molly Malone’s Pub in Los Angeles Monday nights in the Nineties. The seven-piece Irish/American, punk/folk ensemble is a rock band with traditional Irish instruments, fronted by Dave King on acoustic guitar and Bridget Regan on fiddle, with electric guitar, bass drums, accordion and banjo. An SSL Live console, supplied by VER Tour Sound, the latest addition to SSL’s Live partner network, was deployed at front of house for the group’s 10th Annual GREEN 17 TOUR, the band’s countdown to St. Patrick’s Day. Stopping at 27 cities, the tour started at Atlanta’s Tabernacle and ended five weeks later at New Orleans’ House of Blues.

FOH engineer Kevin Lemoine describes the touras “theaters and larger clubs, like the House of Blues, with loudspeakers ranging from a very nice d&b J-series outside <where everything is pristine and clean, all the way down to 15-year-old EV boxes.”

Lemoine has mixed Green Day for 13 years and is known for carrying an analogue console during most of his tours. He has mixed a number of other well-known acts, including Sugar Ray, Buck Owens, the Luna Chicks, Iggy Pop, Ice-T, Jane’s Addiction, The Black Crowes and The Reverend Horton Heat, among others.

VER’s Jason Vrobel has worked Green Day shows with Lemoine since 2004 as crew chief and system engineer. “I’ve known Kevin for a very long time,” Vrobel states. “He’s always been anti-digital. Always uses analogue as much as he possibly can. Anytime there’s analogue/digital situation, it wasn’t his choice. This was the first time he was extremely happy.”

“I didn’t have any time on the SSL Live before we went out on tour,” says Lemoine. “Back at VER, Jason programmed the inputs, effects sends and returns, groups, basically assigning the whole console before the tour. So no training, a little bit of YouTube searching about how things work, how it was set up, how it operated, but the rest of it was hands-on right there. It’s not a very difficult console to get around on.”

SSL Live is designed to provide a flexible workflow with several operational approaches, combining a large multi-touch daylight screen, with a second channel control screen surrounded by dedicated encoders, and up to three five-layered, 12-channel fader tiles plus, under the hood, there’s abundant, adaptable bus architecture. “The first day, was a little nerve-wracking because I was just learning the console,” says Lemoine. “Second day, I got a little deeper into what was available on each input; compressors, limiters, gates and how things worked. For the stuff that you use every day, it’s laid out pretty well. The sound was great on the first day and throughout the tour, I just refined the great sound.”

“There are two schools of thought from a FOH perspective,” continues Lemoine. “Pretty much, it boils down to digital versus analogue consoles. To my ear, and to most of my friends’ ears, analogue consoles sound the best, but the one negative factor is transport, size, weight and all that stuff. On the other hand, you have the digital realm where the console is small, light and easy to pack around, but their sound is usually kind of inept, I think. The features are there, but in the end, the sound isn’t really what you’re looking for. So now, you have this SSL Live, which seems to be in its own realm. It’s a small digital console, easy to pack around and fits into any venue, but it doesn’t sound like a digital console, it sounds like an analogue console. It’s very pleasing to the ear.

“It’s a very wide sound stage,” adds Lemoine. “A lot of consoles don’t go that wide. It’s nice to hear your drummer’s toms go from left to right and hear a true stereo image on your cymbals. It’s definitely a wide sound stage. Bar none, it’s the best digital console on the market. I have no doubt in my mind. I really like Live’s mic pres, they’re pretty amazing.”

PreSonus Tames the Loudest Hole in Golf

Scottsdale, AZ – April 2014… With a history dating back to the 1930s, the Phoenix Open is one of pro golf’s most celebrated events. Now known as the Waste Management Phoenix Open, the tournament has hosted some of the biggest names in the game, from Arnold Palmer, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, and Ben Crenshaw to Phil Mickelson, Vijay Singh, and Tiger Woods.

In 1987, the Open moved to its current home at the world-renowned TPC Scottsdale golf course. The course was custom designed for the tournament and is best known for the 16th hole of its Stadium Course. It has often been referred to as “the loudest hole in golf”; during the tournament, its amphitheater-style seats are packed with crowds of exuberant fans and spectators who cheer and jeer loudly as the pros play through.

David Eriksson, CEO of Phoenix-based Church Technologies, is a volunteer with the Phoenix Thunderbirds, a prominent civic organization that has supported the Open throughout its storied history, raising millions of dollars for Phoenix-area charities. Eriksson, who has lent his audio skills to the event for close to a decade, explains the challenges behind the 16th hole.

“It’s always been a bit of a crazy event, and by the time the players get through to hole 16, they’re nearing the end of their game, and things are loosening up,” he observes. “But it’s still a regulation game, and the PGA has some pretty stringent regulations regarding noise. The challenge is to find just the right balance of being heard over the crowd without overpowering the game.”

Eriksson found the solution a few months before this year’s Open. “We did an event last December as part of the Shane and Shane tour, and I got to hear the new PreSonus® StudioLive™ AI loudspeakers,” he recalls. “I just loved the way they sounded, and I thought it would be great to try them out at the Open.”

Four systems were brought in to cover the 16th hole, each comprising three StudioLive 328AI Active Integration™ loudspeakers and a StudioLive 18sAI subwoofer. “We had one system in the Chairman’s Club, another in the bar area, and two more on the crowd,” says Eriksson. “The sound was just wonderful—the system had such amazing clarity.”

For next year’s Open, Eriksson plans on bringing in a StudioLive AI-series digital console, too, to take full advantage of Active Integration. “I’m really excited about being able to control the mix from an iPad,” he enthuses. “I can be down in the tee box and hear what the players are hearing. That’s an amazing advantage.”

“This is one of the biggest events in professional golf, and getting the sound right is a big part of it,” Eriksson concludes. “PreSonus has pretty much everything we need, from the console to the speakers, and it’s all fully integrated to work together. It’s a great fit.”

Zylight Brings Upgraded F8 LED Fresnel to NAB 2014

LOS ANGELES – Zylight, a leading manufacturer of innovative LED lighting solutions, showcased an improved F8 LED Fresnel at the 2014 NAB Show. Introduced last year, the reengineered lighting instrument still delivers close to the light output of a traditional 1000-watt Fresnel and collapses to less than four inches thick for easy transport, but a number of refinements deliver improved performance for field and studio applications.

The yoke mount has been angled for greater positioning range and able to accommodate 90-degree stand mounting. Plus, all locking and adjustment is done with a single knob. On the light, the self-locking focus now automatically holds focus position. Other improvements include improved bellow design for smoother operation, a self-terminating DMX input, better protection from the elements and a new heat sink orientation that allows 20 percent better cooling.

“We have been blown away by the response to the F8. Broadcast studios, ENG news crews, commercial producers, independent filmmakers – our LED Fresnel has been embraced by video professionals across the industry,” said Joe Arnao, president of Zylight. “We went back to the drawing board to make the F8 even better, without changing the features that make it the most exciting lighting instrument on the market.”

Available in daylight (5600K) or tungsten (3200K) versions, the F8 lighting instrument draws only 100 watts. It has a high CRI (color rendering index) and its eight-inch SCHOTT glass lens maintains single shadow traditional Fresnel beam shaping. The fully dimmable F8 offers an adjustable beam spread (16-70 degrees), with a patented focusing system for spot and flood operations.

Bright like an HMI, the F8 is a better choice for run-and-gun ENG applications – it can be powered by a standard 14.4V camera battery or AC adapter, and it is water resistant (IP54) for use in challenging location conditions. Its LED engine features quantum dot technology to provide a more refined and balanced natural light output, which has been tuned to work with today’s digital camera systems. Like other Zylight models, the F8 features ZyLink wireless technology, which makes it easy to link multiple Zylights for simultaneous remote control. The F8 ships with barn doors and yoke mount, but additional accessories are available separately.

Founded in 2003, Zylight LLC is the leading manufacturer of intelligent LED lighting instruments for the film and video production industry.

CI-BUSS Brings Clear Sound to Dixie Regional Medical Center

St. George, UT – April 2014… Consistently voted one of the top 100 hospitals in the US, Intermountain Dixie Regional Medical Center is one of the largest and most progressive health care facilities in the Southern Utah and Nevada region. Its sprawling campus is home to a number of state-of-the-art, high tech laboratory and surgical facilities, staffed by some of the best professionals in the business.

Recently, the hospital installed new CI-BUSS communications systems from Yorba Linda, CA-based Tech Works in several of their Cardiac Catheterization lab facilities. Randy Turek of Dixie’s Cardiology Department explains the challenges of communicating within a sterile facility.

“The doctors inside the clean rooms need to be able to communicate with staff outside the glass, and for quite some time, that communication was via a hanging microphone,” says Turek. “The sound quality was terrible. The rooms themselves are a very boomy, reflective environment, with flat walls, vinyl floors, and plenty of glass, so intelligibility is poor to begin with. Communication basically consisted of a lot of yelling back and forth.”

The CI-BUSS system provided the doctors with the flexibility of using lightweight headsets, desktop or ceiling mounted microphones, with powerful digital signal processing and automatic level control for clean, intelligible, hands-free communication.

“We had tried a number of different solutions, and when we looked around at other facilities to see what they were using, we realized that everyone was having the same issues,” Turek observes. “Everyone was putting together systems with different components from different manufacturers, and the results were never quite as good as they could be. The CI-BUSS system was the first we found that was specifically designed for this purpose. We were able to configure the entire system and choose the components we needed for each application.”

With the CI-BUSS system in place, doctors are now able to communicate to staff in normal conversational tones. That has its own advantages, says Turek. “We found that after we switched to the CI-BUSS, the satisfaction levels in our patient care environment went up. Patients were happy we were no longer yelling back and forth.”

5 Seconds of Summer, One Mixing Console of Choice: HARMAN’s Soundcraft Vi4

SYDNEY, Australia – Australian pop rock band 5 Seconds of Summer is currently one of the hottest bands in the world. Since forming in December 2011 as college students posting YouTube videos of cover songs, the group has rocketed to worldwide fame—it has performed as the opening act for One Direction and will reprise that role on an upcoming tour, had its debut single “She Looks So Perfect” hit Number One in 39 countries and sold out headlining shows in Australia, the US and the UK in minutes. Over the last year the band and front of house engineer John Delf have toured the world with one console: the HARMAN Soundcraft Vi4.

“We’ve done more than 110 shows with One Direction, interspersed with 5 Seconds of Summer’s headlining shows and last year played in front of a combined audience of over one million people. Not bad for a band that at the time hadn’t even had a single out yet,” said Delf. “Most of the venues have been arenas from 10,000 to 20,000 capacity although we did a couple of shows that were 25,000 to 30,000, and a few 1,000 to 3,000-seat theaters. Through it all the Vi4 has been rock solid.”

Although 5 Seconds to Summer has been playing some of the world’s biggest venues and the Vi4 is capable of 96 inputs to mix, the band has a channel count of 32, making the Soundcraft Vi4’s compact size and ready access to all functions a big benefit. “I can get all my important channels on layer one, so I find it really easy to get access to everything I need without having to switch pages on the console,” Delf said.
What’s Delf’s biggest challenge in using the Vi4? “Trying to hear the mix over the screaming girls! For the first three songs of the set it’s almost impossible to hear the music because the fans are so excited to see the band that their screams are in the region of 115 to 120 dB, which is quite a lot louder than the usual 104-105 dB gig level. This also batters your ears and they take a little time to recover so it’s not until around song four that can you start to really get an idea as to what is going on.”

“I have all my main important channels on layer one of the desk, so all the drums, bass, guitars and vocals, then layer two is just for backing tracks and effects returns that usually look after themselves,” Delf said of his console configuration. “I use the VCAs a lot and have masters for all sections of the band and an all master for the whole band less vocals. It’s with this all VCA that I ride the dynamics of the band. I also have an effects VCA and a delay return VCA so I can control these levels and mutes without going on to layer two.”
Delf noted that one of the main reasons he chose the Vi4 for mixing 5 Seconds of Summer is the new Soundcraft Realtime Rack library of plug-ins developed with Universal Audio and compatible with all Soundcraft Vi Series digital consoles. “The fact that you can now use all the Universal Audio plug-ins in the live environment is so exciting,” he said. “I own Edge Recording Studios in Cheshire UK and we have a UAD2 card installed and the Universal Audio plug-ins sound amazing in the studio, so to be able to apply those to live sound is very cool.”
“Soundcraft also provided us with the touchscreen to control all these plug-ins and that makes it so much cooler to use and also looks pretty damn impressive,” Delf continued. “When I first started using them the effect was quite subtle but one day on tour one of my cables went missing and I thought I couldn’t use it for the show and that’s when I realized how much I missed it and how big a difference it really made. We found the cable in the end and it was all systems go. Not sure what I’d do without it now to be honest!”

Having used a Soundcraft Vi6 on a previous tour with the band Plan B, Delf chose the Vi4 primarily for its sound quality. “I just love the way it sounds and it was my first choice for 5 Seconds of Summer,” he said. “This band has a much smaller channel count than the Plan B tour so I was able to fit perfectly on the Vi4, so why not? It sounds amazing, has great pre’s, has built-in dbx compressors and Lexicon effects, plus the addition of the Realtime Rack UAD card. Why wouldn’t anyone choose one?”

So far, Delf is more than satisfied with the Vi4. “I have loved using the desk and all of its features,” he noted. “It’s so easy to get round and everything you need is there in front of you. We let our support act use the desk too and their engineer had never seen one before the tour and by show two he was all over it. It’s very easy to use, sounds amazing and is so quick to learn. I couldn’t ask for more. Bring on the Soundcraft Vi3000, that’s all I can say!”

Up-And-Coming Swedish Producer/Musician Erik Birkelöf Finds Sweet Sounds In HARMAN’s Lexicon LXP Native Reverb Plug-In Bundle

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — When you think of world musical centers, places that come to mind are New York, Nashville, London, Detroit, Sweden and…Sweden? From ABBA in the 1970s to Max Martin and his unstoppable string of hits today, the home of Spotify is enjoying a growing influence in pop music. 19-year old Erik Birkelöf is part of the Swedish musical movement – he’s already been playing and recording for more than half his life and is constantly honing his craft, with his most recent acquisition being a Lexicon LXP Native Reverb Plug-In Bundle.

Birkelöf began playing classical guitar about 10 years ago and progressed to playing drums and other instruments. He soon bought his first computer audio interface in order to record himself – “and then I was trapped! I found that I loved recording music as much as playing it.” In addition to his own music he likes to record other musicians. “I’ve done projects from blues to funk to electro to death metal,” he notes. “I like to record all the different styles of music, because each requires different mixing techniques.”

In his pursuit of musical knowledge Birkelöf had heard Lexicon mentioned time and again. “I can’t tell you how many people told me I needed to try a Lexicon reverb, or that they had been using something else and made the switch to Lexicon because it sounded so much better. I didn’t think a reverb plug-in could make that much of a difference – but when I finally got the chance to hear the LXP Native Reverb it was the greatest reverb I’ve ever heard.”

“I’ve used the LXP Native Reverb on some classical guitar tracks, drums, and vocals. On guitar it gives a bigger and more colored sound that really fits well with what I’m trying to create. It also does a great job filling in the gaps with vocals and drums while staying transparent,” added Birkelöf.

For Birkelöf the various effects that the LXP Native Reverb offers has opened up a lot of new possibilities. “I like the Plate as my standard when mixing a track, but now that I have more options I’m using Hall, Chamber, and Room as well. They sit in the mix much nicer then my other reverbs and make the track sound much more put together.”

Sweden is known for its support of music and the arts and Erik Birkelöf’s dream is to attend a school for music production to further his mission to help other young up-and-coming musicians. Currently he manages an initiative that gives four artists a year, under the age of 16, the opportunity to have their music recorded for free. “Obviously it would be great to work with big names, but I know how difficult it is to break into the music industry and I enjoy providing this opportunity to the next generation of musicians. My ultimate dream is to build my own studio and continue to help young artists.”

“Erik is a talented and ambitious young man who is not only working hard to make his dreams a reality, but he is taking the time to help others along the way. We are confident Erik will find Lexicon to be an invaluable tool as his career continues to develop and we look forward to hearing about his future success,” stated Jason Kunz, Market Manager, Portable PA and Recording & Broadcast for HARMAN Signal Processing.
