Jampro Antennas Powers CFAP-DT in Quebec City, Canada

Sacramento, CA – Jampro Antennas, Inc. — a world leader in the manufacture and design of radio frequency components and antennas for radio and television transmission — today announced the successful installation and commissioning of a custom designed, digital television transmission antenna for CFAP-DT, a French language broadcaster located in Québec City, Québec, Canada.

The antenna is one of Jampro’s Prostar Series, a JA/MS-20/39 SHO Broadband UHF Slot set to transmit on channel 39 in a side-mounted, horizontally polarized omnioid pattern. Jampro customized the unit to fit and travel within the confines of a hi-rise elevator, thus significantly reducing the expensive installation costs normally associated with a traditional rooftop installation.

“We delivered the antenna with polarization and transmission pattern specifically configured for CFAP’s tower location, environment and broadcast frequency,” said Alex Perchevitch, president of Jampro. “In addition, we designed the antenna’s dimensions to fit within the tower’s elevator to facilitate installation.”

CFAP-DT is a V Interactions owned station, which promotes itself with the slogan “Be Entertained”. It completed its transition to digital operation in August 2011.

Carl Tatz Design’s PhantomFocus™ System Goes to School

— Personal studio design guru Carl Tatz shares his design secrets and acclaimed PhantomFocus™ System expertise with students and staff at Berklee College of Music and SAE Nashville, as well as contributing a chapter to Bobby Owsinski’s new tome The Studio Builder’s Handbook —

Nashville, TN: “Carl Tatz has used his previous experience as a studio owner to become not only one of the most forward-looking studio designers today, but an innovator in monitoring technology as well. His PhantomFocus™ System (PFS) monitor tuning protocol is quickly becoming the standard by which all others are measured,” quotes bestselling author and music/technology advisor Bobby Owsinski, who has dedicated an entire chapter in his latest textbook, The Studio Builder’s Handbook, based on a point that Carl Tatz, noted personal studio designer and creator of the PFS, drives home with knowledgeable stealth and experience: “There is nothing more important in a control room than the accuracy of your monitoring.”

Tatz also comments about his recent invitations to lecture at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, and the Nashville, Tennessee branch of SAE: “I try to give them something practical they can take with them and use right away in their own home studios.”

“Carl was so gracious to come speak with our senior audio students at SAE Nashville during Acoustics class. The students were very excited to hear about the PhantomFocus System, and the information Carl shared provided an unparalleled educational experience for our students,” comments Crystal Armentrout, Director of Education, SAE Nashville.

Rob Jaczko, Chairman of the Production and Engineering Department at Berklee, recalls, “I thought the students asked some great questions and learned a lot also.”

“There are quite a few things you can do to improve your home studio monitoring that are really quite simple and very rewarding if you are willing to take the initiative to calculate your monitoring position relative to the room’s acoustic peaks and nulls and deal with the first reflection points relative to what I call the Null Positioning Ensemble™,” instructed Tatz.

When Tatz extends this information to its logical end, adding many steps including various decoupling and isolation modules, subwoofer system and powerful DSP, the result is what he has achieved with the PhantomFocus System. “A lot of what I do is about myth-busting, and I’ve broken quite a few in developing the PhantomFocus System, choosing to rely on physics and the resulting sonic performance rather than acoustic superstitions.” And that performance is quite dramatic, as anyone who has experienced the PFS will agree.
