Myers Unveils New Identity

COMPANY REVEALS LOGO & BRANDING INITIATIVES

Northampton, MA – Myers Information Systems – an established and highly respected developer of broadcast traffic, business, and content management software – today announced a major initiative to refresh the company’s presence in the marketplace. “We’re beginning 2013 – the company’s 30th year in business – by streamlining our name and introducing a new brand identity,” said Crist Myers, company CEO and president.

“We’ve been just plain ‘Myers’ to our customers for some time now. The ‘Information Systems’ part is a bit outdated and limiting; ProTrack has evolved tremendously from its early program management and scheduling software roots into a far more capable and robust broadcast management system that supports the entire broadcast chain from program acquisition to reconciliation,” noted Myers. The new brand identity builds on the company’s solid foundation of long-held and practiced core values: User-centric, innovative software backed by a team of knowledgeable, friendly people. “Myers has enjoyed great success partnering with, and building solutions for public television and radio stations; that’s not changing. We developed the new look to make our brand more accessible to digital content operators in parallel markets, such as corporate, educational, faith-based and government media channels.”

The company’s existing email domain and web address, www.MyersInfoSys.com, will continue.

ProTrack, Myers’ proven flagship suite, is available in both radio and television editions. It offers comprehensive scheduling and business management for individual, multichannel and multi-station facilities. Actively used by more than 226 media outlets, supporting more than 1,300 channels, ProTrack provides a high-level of structure, scalability, and systems integration for today’s rapidly evolving media environments.

Stratus Broadcast Solutions Taps Myers to Manage PBS Content

Northampton, MA – Myers Information Systems – a respected developer of broadcast traffic, business, and content management software – today announced a successful integration of the company’s flagship ProTrack™ Television suite at the central hub facility of Stratus Broadcast Solutions in Davenport, Iowa. The Myers installation supports WYCC, a Chicago area PBS member station which recently hired Stratus to provide master control and trafficking services.

The complex project was completed on-schedule, despite an extremely tight three week timeframe. Using the company’s cloud-based ProHost solution, Myers temporarily assumed responsibility for program scheduling and trafficking services while fine tuning the interface between Stratus and WYCC. The live ProTrack database, along with day-to-day on-air responsibility for WYCC, was then transitioned to a physical server in the Stratus facility.

“The Joint Master Control (JMC) service model has become a core operational option in both the commercial and public television station communities. The efficiencies of the shared services infrastructure reduces the capital need and creates an innovative profitability model for the local broadcaster,” said Marc Jaromin, Stratus president and CEO. “We were fortunate to partner with
Myers – their professionalism and experience in the public television sector really helped to make a smooth and efficient transition for all concerned.”

“I’m very proud of our team,” said Crist Myers, company CEO and president. “They successfully, provided an interim workflow during the transition from WYCC to Stratus, and ‘transplanted’ the live ProTrack system onto Stratus’s servers – typically a six-weeks or more undertaking – all in a record-breaking three weeks … and they got it all done during the annual PBS and NAB conventions!”

Myers’ proven flagship suite, ProTrack, is available in both radio and television editions. It offers comprehensive scheduling and business management for individual, multichannel and multi-station facilities. Actively used by more than 226 media outlets, supporting more than 1,300 channels, ProTrack provides a high-level of structure, scalability, and systems integration for today’s rapidly evolving media environments.

DIFFUSING / SCATTERING SOUND: Sound Diffusion Explained

Acoustic Diffuser DemonstrationAcoustics First has just released another in a series of videos to help explain acoustical principles using simple, easy to understand video demonstrations. This latest demonstration tackles the mystery of acoustic sound diffusion. Using an array of ping pong balls to represent sound visually, this video simply demonstrates what occurs when sound strikes the surface of an acoustic diffuser. First, you will see what happens when sound hits a flat reflective surface with no acoustical treatment. Acoustic Sound DiffuserThe balls all bounce at the same time and in the same direction. This represents what happens to the sound when it hits a flat reflective surface like a wall. Then you see what happens when sound hits an acoustic sound diffuser. You will immediately notice the energy of the wave of balls is scattered in all different directions as well as deflected at different time intervals. Diffusers, disperse or scatter the sound like crowd control, preserving the sound to maintain sound clarity without destructive interference. This is the basic principle behind acoustic sound diffusion.

Acoustics First’s acoustical wall fabric saves $Green$ while being Green!

For Immediate Release

Acoustical wall fabric saves $Green$ while being Green!

Acoustical wall fabric installed under chair rail

Sound Channels® acoustical wall fabric is manufactured from 100% Post-Consumer Recycled material, making this a quick ship, easy, no thought acoustic solution.

Sound Channels® is applied directly to vertical surfaces, is easy to cut and installs like wall carpet. This absorptive wall fabric is a great choice to moderate speech frequencies in any application. Great to soften sound in conference rooms, distance learning, offices, and day care facilities, this material can also be used as a base layer in home theaters, recording studios and broadcast facilities.

Not only is this economical acoustical treatment available in countless colors, it is manufactured from recycled materials, reducing environmental impact!

Sound Channels in manufactured using Eco-fi fibers. Eco-fi is a high-quality polyester fiber made from 100% certified recycled plastic bottles. It can go into any textile product such as clothing, blankets, carpets, wall coverings, auto interiors, home furnishings, and craft felt. Eco-fi can also be blended with other fibers, such as cotton or wool, for enhanced qualities.

AN EASY GUIDE: 15 bottles = 1 yard of wall covering

Why buy Eco?fi products?
We have the capacity to keep billions of plastic bottles out of the world’s landfills each year by using post-consumer plastic bottles instead of virgin materials in the fiber manufacturing process. By doing this, we can lower harmful air emissions and save millions of barrels of oil from being used which, in turn, reduces the harmful effects of acid rain, global warming, and smog. Fabrics made from Eco-fi fiber are chemically and functionally nearly identical to those made from non-recycled fiber. The difference is that Eco-fi fiber is made without depleting the Earth’s natural resources. With properties such as strength, softness, shrinkage-resistance, and colorfastness, market applications for Eco-fi products are expanding every day.

Harris Demonstrates New PR&E Studio Enhancements for Networked Audio Environments at The Radio Show

DALLAS, September 19, 2012 (The Radio Show, Hilton Anatole, Booth 604)Harris Broadcast Communications today introduces a series of user-friendly features for analog and digital studio environments at The Radio Show, giving broadcasters more tools to empower on-air, production and networking capabilities in distributed and consolidated studio architectures.

Harris introduces programmable button panels that enhance routing capabilities and protect signal destinations, as well as standard metering designs across all Harris® PR&E® studio consoles to improve ease of use. New quad-meter enhancements for its largest console line also increase confidence metering for operators monitoring several on- and off-air sources at once.

Programmable Button Panels
The new “smart,” dynamic LCD button panels give operators and producers five programmable buttons to initiate audio routes or commands to and from any location. Foremost, the panels shield the air chain and other destinations from accepting undesired audio, maximizing protection in networked studio environments. This means that an on-air operator would need to approve a “request” from another studio to introduce that audio to the program. The buttons similarly protect for remote signal contributions, allowing operators to cleanly initiate mix-minus feeds on-air.

Operators benefit further from clarity on the actual “owner” of the audio source, with rich text and unique color screens offering clear visual information about where each signal originates. This is a key differentiator from competing systems that don’t identify the origination point.

Harris now offers its new programmable button panels on PR&E® RMXdigital® consoles, the VMReact™ logic processing engine and other PR&E® VistaMax™ audio networking systems. VMReact, introduced last year at The Radio Show, is a virtual toolbox that allows studio operators and engineers to customize and automate multiple processes in networked studio environments. This includes everything from switching audio routes to creating contact closures for various events.

Uniformity and Ease of Use
Harris enhances the look and feel of its metering applications at The Radio Show, introducing a standard design for meters, clocks and timers across its RMXdigital, NetWave® and Oasis™ on-air/production consoles. Harris also introduces quad-meters for most RMXdigital consoles, allowing operators to monitor additional sources. This improves metering confidence by ensuring signal integrity for program and off-air sources, such as web streaming and network routing.

Harris is also demonstrating its recently-introduced RMXengine™, offering an on-demand mix-minus and IFB for every RMXdigital fader. The auxiliary device also enables advanced dual-console operation for sophisticated dual-anchor studio operations — bridging two consoles together in a single studio. The aforementioned new programmable button panels also bring benefits to these applications, allowing for negotiated and protected air chain control between two consoles.

About Harris Broadcast Communications
Harris Broadcast Communications offers products, systems and services that provide interoperable workflow solutions for broadcast, cable, satellite and out-of-home networks. The Harris ONE™ solution brings together highly integrated and cost-effective products that enable advanced media workflows for emerging content delivery business models.
