Trew Audio Turns to DPA Microphones for AOL’s HuffPost Live

Sound Installation and Services Company Specifies DPA 4061 Lavalier Mics for the Online News Outlet’s LA Studio

LOS ANGELES, JUNE 18, 2013 – When AOL Productions’ HuffPost Live, an online video streaming network affiliated with the Huffington Post news outlet, sought to outfit its Beverly Hills studio with a permanent set of audio equipment, it turned to Trew Audio Los Angeles, to specify the gear. As audio is one of the most important elements of any webcast, Trew Audio, a longtime provider of sound equipment sales, rentals and services for AOL Productions, suggested DPA Microphones’ 4061 Lavalier Microphone. Used daily by the talent and guests who appear on the Website, the microphones provide clarity, flexibility and reliability.

HuffPost Live is broadcast from two studios, one in Los Angeles and the other in New York. Originally, the network operated mostly out of its New York location, only using the Beverly Hills studio sporadically. For the occasions when shows were aired from Los Angeles, AOL Productions rented equipment from Trew Audio. As the popularity of its Los Angeles shows grew, so too did HuffPost Live’s need for a permanent arrangement of gear at the Beverly Hills studio. Already familiar with the quality of DPA Microphones, and on suggestion from Trew Audio, the network purchased eight DPA 4061 microphones for its audio setup.

“When HuffPost Live approached us about audio products for the show, the first company that came to mind was DPA Microphones,” says Gary Vahling, rental manager for Trew Audio. “The quality of the company’s products is exceptional and the support provided by its staff is always top notch. We knew that with microphones from DPA, HuffPost Live would be able to ensure that viewers hear talent and guests loudly and clearly, without any noise or interference.”

With the New York version of the show already well established, Trew Audio needed to provide an audio solution that would allow the bicoastal teams to flow seamlessly between New York and Los Angeles airtime.

Offering great detail and resolution, the 4061s have a neutral sonic character and are very natural sounding. The 4061 has a very low noise floor, impressive sensitivity and can handle high SPLs. The microphone is also available with a wide range of connection adapters for all professional wireless systems, such as Audio-Technica, Sennheiser and Shure, as well as an XLR adapter for 48V Phantom Power applications. To provide the ultimate microphone solution, Vahling also supplied HuffPost Live with a Lectrosonics wireless adapter for the DPA 4061 mics.

“One of the best things about DPA Microphones is that the company supplies adapters for all of the standard wireless systems currently available on the market,” explains Vahling. “Those units make the microphones really flexible for everything we do in rentals. For customers, it allows them to change a connector on the fly depending on what they are doing.”

Also included in the kit for each of the eight DPA 4061 mics are two grids – one high boost and one soft boost – that allow the user to acoustically modify the microphone according to placement: chest, head etc. Additionally, a wide range of accessories are available, such as windscreens, clips and holders, extension cables and power supplies.

“Another great thing about DPA’s microphones is the accessory kits,” concludes Vahling. “The elements that are included along with the microphones help with all performances, whether it’s a live webcast or a musical performance.”

RPG Celebrates 30 Years of Developing Innovative Acoustical Solutions

To Enhance the Music, Improve the Intelligibility and Quiet the Noise

UPPER MARLBORO, MD: Dr. Peter D’Antonio began his career as a diffraction physicist at the Naval Research Lab (NRL) in 1967. A musician and composer with an interest in recording, Dr. D’Antonio designed and built the Underground Sound Studio in his home in the late 1970s. In the early 1980s, he became intrigued with the possibility of using diffusing surfaces based on a mathematical number theory, initially developed by Carl Friedrich Gauss in the 18th century, to diffuse rather than absorb the reflected sound from the rear wall of his control room. D’Antonio was familiar with these new, periodic diffusing surfaces; because they were 2-dimensional versions of the 3-D crystal lattices he was studying using X-ray diffraction. As a result of this research, the RPG® Diffusor was born, along with a new Live-End-Dead-End design for control rooms, using a ‘Reflection Free Zone,’ (RFZTM,) which remains the de facto design standard today.

While still working as a diffraction physicist, he incorporated RPG Diffusor Systems, Inc. in 1983. “The RPG Diffuser, which was inducted into the music industry’s TECnology Hall of Fame this year, was the first innovation inspired by our mission of ‘expanding the acoustical palette through a continued commitment to fundamental acoustics research,’” D’Antonio reveals. “Recording studio owners and designers were quick to embrace these revolutionary units. They proved highly effective in improving room acoustics and they provided handsome aesthetic enhancements as well. We literally launched a new industry.” In 1996, Dr. D’Antonio retired from NRL to devote full time to growing RPG from a pioneer in the recording industry to providing new solutions in the general architectural acoustics market. Over the past thirty years, RPG Diffusor Systems, Inc.’s award-winning innovations have changed the face (and the sound) of recording, broadcast, and performance environments. Today, a wide array of RPG products are engaged to enhance an astonishing range of acoustically challenged environments around the globe.

RPG recently instituted a new management team. Dr. Peter D’Antonio is now Chairman/ CEO, and two long-term RPG team members who have contributed greatly to the firms success, have been promoted to senior management positions. John Groth has been appointed President/CFO, Jeff Madison has been named Executive Vice President. Research continues to nourish RPG product advances.

The firm has pioneered a 3-decade-long progression of groundbreaking developments, now considered indispensible to architects and acousticians. Today, a mature assessment of the need for improved acoustics is manifest far beyond the professional audio recording and broadcast studio enclave. RPG products are employed by a client base that encompasses schools, corporate boardrooms and auditoriums, concert halls, motion picture and live performance theaters, Houses of Worship, home theaters, stadiums, restaurants and the burgeoning Project Studio market.

“On-going dialogues with professional organizations such as the Audio Engineering Society, the Acoustical Society of America and Syn-Aud-Con, coupled with long-term relationships with leading architects and acousticians have inspired a number of our new products over the years,” D’Antonio says. In addition to the RPG Diffusor System, which has continued evolving to include the widest range and highest performance sound diffusors, RPG has also developed a wide range of innovative absorbing surfaces.

The ModffusorTM eliminates all the limitations of the original QRD® and represents the highest diffusive performance to date; Waveform® is a patented wide range of optimized curvilinear shapes for wall or suspended cloud installation; Topakustik® and Topperfo®, are key elements in the most expansive and versatile sound absorbing wood plank and panel system, representing hallmarks of high quality installations. “Newer products like Quietstone® , an innovative approach to utilizing recycled stone aggregate or glass to control noise, sound reflections and excess reverberation, and Clearsorber® Foil and Deamp, transparent sound absorbers with microperforations and micro-slits, respectively, illustrate the validity of our philosophy of dedicated R&D,” D’Antonio asserts.

An increasing commitment by architects to improving the sound quality in new public and private buildings has seen RPG products perform noteworthy acoustical services in many significant international projects. These include: The New York TimesCenter, designed by Renzo Piano; Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, recently completed in Dubai; Denver Museum of Nature and Science; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Jungle City, NY’s acclaimed destination recording studio; Sony Computer Entertainment America, San Mateo, CA; the renowned Jazz At Lincoln Center Complex; and, most recently the SFJAZZ Center an extraordinary new 35,000 sq. ft ‘sanctuary for jazz,’ in San Francisco.

“We consider the past 30 years a prelude to the next 3 decades,” Peter D’Antonio adds. “Sophisticated new research, measurement and simulation tools and innovative new acoustic materials are constantly being introduced. Awareness of the critical role performed by acoustics in our social, business and entertainment worlds has never been higher. Our commitment to on-going research and our state-of-the art measurement facilities for determining the absorption, scattering and diffusion coefficients are increasingly productive. RPG’s staff of mathematicians, acousticians, musicians and architects continues to guide our firm towards more breakthrough developments; and to on-going improvements to products already established as industry standards. The future looks good to us, and we’re dedicated to making it sound even better,” he concludes.

It accepts either microphone or line-level signals, provides 48-V phantom power for condenser microphones, offers peak limiters for microphone inputs and features fully adjustable high-pass filters—all in a compact package. Routing flexibility allows each input to be routed to left/right mixed tracks, isolated tracks or aux tracks.

The 788T has several options for recording media, including an internal SATA hard drive (solid-state in the 788T-SSD), CompactFlash cards, an external FireWire hard drive or DVD-RAM (with bus powering). Any or all of these can be used simultaneously. Additionally, when connected to Mac or Windows computers with high-speed USB or FireWire 400/800, the 788T functions as a high-speed mass storage device.

To simplify AES3 connectivity with mixers and cameras, the 788T has eight channels of balanced AES3 digital inputs and six channels of balanced AES3 outputs. The 788T can be clocked from an external word clock or from video sync. The 788T also comes equipped with a high-accuracy time-code reader/generator. It also includes auto-record features to chase external “Rec-Run” video sources. To simplify metadata entry, the 788T accepts USB keyboards directly or can be operated remotely from iOS devices with the optional CL-WiFi. The 788T, like all Sound Devices products, is versatile and designed to withstand the physical and environmental extremes of rigorous field production.
