What began as an idea to host SMARTWEEK in one major city has expanded across the globe, either as a joint or independent event.

“This ‘storm’ is beyond anything I ever imagined. The vision was to create a one-day event to explore emerging smart technologies and strategies that are shaping our connected world and challenging us all to see how IoT and M2M are transforming our lives every day. This is now a three-day event, with global offshoots,” said SMARTWEEK 2014 co-founder and lecturer, Helen Kontozopoulos.

“Our lineup of speakers and sponsors for SMARTWEEK are among the most respected in the industry and we are excited to be live streaming many of the conference sessions and offering them post-event on YouTube. We are grateful for Christie’s technology support, which lets us showcase creative interactive digital content  including renderings created by Mulvey & Banani architects  to illustrate to potential funders the type of computer science department the University of Toronto envisions for its students and industry researchers. Our aim is to make the university, Toronto, and Canada a polestar for Internet of Things where great minds with big ideas make things happen.”

Christie technology in the DCS Innovation Lab includes:
- A 4 by 6 Christie® MicroTiles® array with Christie Jumpstart content management solution which allows the display of multiple, high-bandwidth video files, graphics.
- Christie Interactivity Kit is a distinctive solution for adding multi-touch interactivity to any digital display. It allows multiple users to interact simultaneously with content on Christie MicroTiles or any video wall using finger touch gestures.
- Two Christie FHD651-T 65 inch LCD flat panels and one Christie QUADHD 84 inch flat panel.

Mario Grech, SMARTWEEK co-founder, University of Toronto alumnus, lecturer and co-creator, (with Kontozopoulos), of the Department of Computer Sciences’ “The Business of Software” course, said, “We are seeing the entrepreneurial ecosystem, government, higher education and industry intersect with IoT at a level where Canada is ideally positioned as a technology hub for this exploding segment of the high tech sector. I returned to Toronto after years in the Silicon Valley to bring its culture of entrepreneurial innovation and creativity to my alma mater through lecturing, seed-funding and growing the Department of Computer Science’s innovation engine into one to be envied around the world.”

John Hallman, senior director of Canadian sales at Christie, said, “SMARTWEEK brings together industry leaders, startups and thought leaders from a global technology sector that is experiencing explosive growth. As a visual and audio technology solutions leader, Christie is at the forefront of innovation in IoT commercialization and pleased to showcase industry-leading ideas and the university’s vision for its computer science department lab of the future on bright, large-format visual displays.”

On October 26, Mark Barfoot, managing director, Hyphen Services, a division of Christie, will participate in ‘Creating IoT: 3D Printing and Prototyping,’ a Smart Industry-themed panel session exploring rapid and distributed prototyping and bespoke manufacturing. Attendees will learn how improved tools and connectivity connects people to printers and printers to assembly lines.

Christie Expands Vive Audio Solution Options
Also, on Tuesday October 28 at 3.45 p.m. in auditorium 19 of the AMC Aventura 24 multiplex, ShowEast attendees can experience the rich, dynamic, detailed sound of the Christie Vive Audio™ line, integrated with Dolby® Atmos™. The demo will feature Christie’s latest LA4 line array screen channels and LA5S wall surround speakers, which are components of the world’s first cinema line array sound system specifically designed for auditoriums over 400 seats. These Christie Vive Audio Premium Large Format (PLF) speakers feature the patented 6-inch Christie planar ribbon driver technology, designed for motion picture playback of DCI digital cinema audio format and supporting leading formats such as Dolby® Atmos™, Auro 11.1, and 7.1 and 5.1 surround sound.

In addition to the LA4 and LA5S, the new speaker line includes the Christie LA4 and LA5 line array speakers, the Christie LA4S and LA5S line array surround, and the Christie LA4C and LA5C ceiling surround.

“Accurate motion picture playback is one of the biggest challenges to designing the perfect premium large-screen auditorium. The larger the room, the more critical the choice of speakers and their proper placement,” said Patrick Artiaga, director of business development, Audio Solutions, Christie. “As Christie Vive Audio PLF speakers were specifically designed for larger rooms, they provide an optimal audio solution to match the visual experience of today’s demanding PLF auditoriums. As well, Christie backs all of its visual and audio solutions with a technical support team whose industry expertise is unsurpassed, ensuring that moviegoers enjoy the ultimate immersive experience.”

DANLEY DOES DOUBLE DUTY FOR RICHWOODS CHRISTIAN CHURCH AND SATELLITE LOCATION

Richwoods_ExteriorPEORIA, ILLINOIS – OCTOBER 2014: Richwoods Christian Church was founded in the late 1990s by pastor Jim Powell in Peoria, Illinois. Its congregation was initially small, a scant sixty-five people, but those congregants were motivated to grow the church. They succeeded, and today Richwoods Christian Church brings 1,400 people together every weekend, spread across four services at two locations. The larger location built its current sanctuary in a former high-end furniture store, where, despite low ceiling height, local A/V integration firm Advanced Audio and Lighting gave the church a highly-intelligible and musical sound reinforcement system based on Danley Sound Labs SH-50 full-range loudspeakers and TH-115 subwoofers. Not wanting to compromise at the satellite location, Richwoods Christian Church asked for Danley again. There, a collapsible system of self-powered Danley SH-96 loudspeakers and TH-118 subwoofers meets that goal.

“Everyone we worked with at Richwoods had a clear vision of what they wanted to achieve without getting overly involved in the nuts and bolts of how it would be achieved,” said Trent Keeling, vice president at Advanced Audio and Lighting. “Quality audio was high on their priority list. They wanted a system that would deliver their very contemporary praise and worship style with authority. Because there’s a lot of musical talent in the church, they needed something that would serve everything from orchestral music to a five-piece rock band, on top of having excellent intelligibility.”

Richwoods_PerformanceWhile the church’s new location in a former furniture store would serve it well in terms of location and accessibility, it was not ideal for sound reinforcement. There was only a nineteen-foot distance between the floor and the low steel, which was compressed even further by a modest stage and drop ceiling. “That’s not a standard hang height,” laughed Keeling. “One of Richwoods’ signature programs is its Christmas pageant, which involves, at various points, up to thirty children running around stage with open omnidirectional lavalier mics. If we could place the PA twenty-five feet up and twenty-five feet forward, then just about any loudspeaker could pull that off. But here we were going to be right above the stage, sixteen feet up. That’s where you separate the men from the boys.”

Keeling’s solution was to cover the room with four Danley SH-50 full-range loudspeakers, two close-packed on each side of the stage. “Danley’s Synergy Horn loudspeakers, like the flagship SH-50, have excellent phase coherency and precise pattern control down to 350Hz and lower,” he said. “Because of that pattern control, the SH-50s can be right above the stage without collapsing into feedback. In addition, the fact that the SH-50 is a three-way enclosure gives Richwoods great vocal intelligibility.” Two flown Danley TH-115 subwoofers provide low-end support. The system is nominally stereo, but because the six hundred-plus seat room is so wide, the techs are “discouraged from doing any hard panning,” in Keeling’s words. Biamp Audia provides modest processing, Lab.gruppen amplifiers power the system, the FOH desk is a Yamaha M7, and Shure microphones provide input.

The church was so pleased with the quality of its Danley sound reinforcement system that it motivated the approach they took to designing a satellite location, Richwoods East. “They recognized that the quality of their services was an important component of Richwoods’ success,” said Keeling. “They wanted the satellite to live up to the quality of the ‘Mother Ship’.” The 500-member congregation of Richwoods East meets at an Embassy Suites ballroom using a portable, plug-and-play system. Keeling maintained the ‘Mother Ship’s’ quality by designing a ground-supported system of two self-powered Danley SH-96s and two self-powered Danley TH-115 subwoofers.

Estonia Public Broadcasting Achieves “Best Sound Ever” with HARMAN Studer’s Vista 5 M3 Digital Console

Studer_EstoniaTALLINN, Estonia – Estonia Public Broadcasting recently upgraded its OB van with a HARMAN Studer Vista 5 M3 digital console. The organization chose to make the upgrade in anticipation of the Estonian Song and Dance Celebration, which took place July 4-6 in Tallinn.

Sold through ProMedia Inc., Studer’s Estonia distributor, the Vista 5 M3 is being used to mix all audio through EPB’s OB van. The console is also complemented with Studer’s Vista FX engine, a 2U chassis that offers Lexicon surround effects and a graphic EQ, all controlled through the Vistonics™ user interface. Connection to the console’s DSP engine is made directly via two high-capacity multichannel HD links.

“This is the first time we have had the chance to mix 150 channels—with the Vista 5, it’s now possible,” said Vytautas Martinonis, Head of the Radio Technical and Sound Recording Department, Estonia Public Broadcasting. “It’s given us the best sound I’ve ever heard from a digital console.”

The Studer Vista 5 M3 is ideal for small to midsize studios and OB trucks, thanks to its compact size and simple connectivity. The total I/O capacity, comprising various cards including mic/line, ADAT, TDIF, AES/EBU, SDI and MADI, may exceed 1,700 inputs and outputs.

“We chose the Vista 5 M3 because it made the most sense from an ergonomic perspective, and we know this console was specifically built with OB vans in mind,” Martinonis noted. “We have also had a positive experience with the Vista 9 that we use at the Estonia Concert Hall, so we found it to be the perfect choice.”

Martinonis also pointed out that durability was also a key factor in choosing the Vista 5 M3. “It was important to have a console that could perform in higher temperatures and could absorb the movement and bumps that come with being in a portable truck,” he said.
