SOLID STATE LOGIC’S BROADCAST EQUIPMENT DEMONSTRATION VEHICLE BEGINS ITS EPIC U.S. TOUR

SSL teams up with technology partners Genelec, Miranda and RTS to showcase the C10 HD Compact Broadcast Console in a state-of-the-art mobile broadcast studio

NEW YORK – Solid State Logic is proud to announce its newly completed Broadcast Equipment Demonstration Vehicle has set out on a non-stop tour of the United States and Canada. The tour began in San Antonio, Texas on Feb 1, 2012 and will continue onwards for the next three years. The custom designed mobile production vehicle features SSL’s C10 HD Compact Broadcast Console and associated routing and I/O solutions in conjunction with all of the key audio and video monitoring and communications systems required for a modern broadcast production facility. Housed in a Russ Berger designed acoustically accurate space, the vehicle enables potential clients to have hands-on experience of SSL’s on-air audio production technology right outside their front door.

“This is an incredibly exciting moment for us,” says Piers Plaskitt, CEO of SSL Inc. “This vehicle gives us a unique opportunity to take a sophisticated broadcast production environment out on the road to connect directly with our customers in their own locality. We know that money is tight and that many organisations simply can’t send as many people to exhibitions like NAB anymore so this vehicle gives us the chance to show the whole production team the benefits of SSL and our partners’ technology. Bringing a mini-NAB to our clients ties in nicely with the way we have designed the product to fit today’s more challenging budgets. The vehicle is equipped to demonstrate a range of broadcast production systems and will be visiting local broadcast stations, sports arenas and houses of worship. This is also a fantastic opportunity for us to visit our extensive network of educational clients to share knowledge and insight with aspiring young audio engineers. We serve up an impressive cup of coffee, too!”

The SSL Broadcast Equipment Demonstration Vehicle, designed by SSL’s Project Engineering team, was built on a 2012 F550 Ford chassis with a custom body and was crafted by leading mobile vehicle specialist Shook Mobile Technology. Russ Berger Design Group (RBDG) provided the acoustic design for the space using both absorbing and diffusing treatments as well as SpaceCoupler technology for the ceiling. The vehicle is presented in association with SSL’s technology partners: Genelec, Miranda, RTS and Savant. The truck demonstrates the capabilities of all of these systems and the integration that is possible between them.

The mobile control room space is completely climate controlled, sound isolated and treated to provide a comfortable and acoustically accurate demonstration environment. The space can accommodate several people and a larger group can watch demonstrations from outside the vehicle via an external audio monitoring system and video display, which is linked to internal cameras.

The audio monitoring system inside the vehicle is a complete Genelec 8020.LSE Espresso 5.1 system, which consists of five Genelec 8020B two-way, bi-amplified active monitors matched with a Genelec 7050B LSE™ Series Active Subwoofer. A pair of 6010A Bi-Amplified Active Monitors for PFL (pre-fade listen) and a pair of 8030A Bi-Amplified Monitors for the outdoor display round out the audio system. A Miranda Kaleido-X16 multi-viewer offers high quality and space efficient monitoring with silent operation, and Miranda’s Densité processing offers simplified signal management using multi-functional modules. An RTS Adam-M system with two key panels is employed for intercom, while a Savant True Image interface handles the vehicle’s lighting and video switching.

The SSL Broadcast Equipment Demonstration Vehicle will visit local U.S. broadcasters, houses of worship, systems integrators, key sports and entertainment events, as well as being showcased at trade exhibitions. The schedule for 2012 begins with demonstrations in Texas, moving on to locations in New Mexico, Arizona and California, stopping in Las Vegas for the NAB Show in April, on to Utah and then the Eastern Seaboard.

Acoustics First reveals the PhaseFOAM Acoustical System

Acoustics First PhaseFOAM™ - acoustic solution for critical listening environemnts.

Acoustics First PhaseFOAM™ - acoustic solution for critical listening environemnts.

If you want a kit to tell you how to design the acoustics in your broadcast facility,

The principals of Acoustics First® have been in the acoustics arena since the seventies when they introduced industrial foam as an acoustic solution for recording studios. Back then, there were neither acoustics companies nor any off the shelf acoustic materials. Everything had to be built by hand. Since then, many choices have appeared – Pre-manufactured acoustical panels, thermoformed diffusers, and many single solution room kits. While kits are convenient and give reasonable results, they can’t possibly be an exact match for your room. Just as no two snowflakes are alike; no two rooms sonically the identical. When it comes to room acoustics, there is no ‘one size fits all’. All rooms are different, so we have created the PhaseFOAM™ acoustical system to allow you, the designer, to tune your room the way you want it to sound. more

Northwest College Leans On WSDG For Studio Design

POWELL, WYO: An enthusiastic AES member, Robert Rumbolz has always made a point of attending Broadcast Facility Design Panels chaired by John Storyk at recent Conventions. In 2009 as he was reviewing plans for a teaching/recording studio for the Music Department of Northwest College in Powell, Wyo., where he serves as Music Dept. Coordinator and Director of Music Technology, Rumbolz visited the Walters-Storyk Design Group AES Booth at the Javits Center. In a meeting with WSDG principal architect/acoustician John Storyk, he sought an opinion on drawings prepared by CTA, a local (Billings, Montana) architectural firm.

A fervent supporter of pro audio education, designer of many teaching facilities around the country, and a frequent lecturer on studio design and acoustics, Storyk’s initial take on the plans revealed some design issues. A discussion with Rumbolz led to WSDG coming on board as a design consultant on the project. more

Middle Atlantic Leads In Technical Support With Revit Drawings

revit.jpgFairfield, NJ––Middle Atlantic Products, an innovative partner to the specification community, is the first rack manufacturer to provide BIM (Building Information Modeling) feature-rich 3D models of its racks, cabinets and enclosures in AutoDesk’s Revit platform.

Revit drawings help to identify problems resulting from objects occupying the same physical space, which in turn saves significant time and money during construction. Because of this, Revit drawings are rapidly becoming the new standard demanded by architects and consultants.
