THE RECORDING ACADEMY® LAUNCHES CAMPAIGN TO “GIVE FANS THE CREDIT”

New Initiative Will Enhance Fans’ Music Discovery by Ensuring All Music Creators Are Credited for Their Work on Digitally Released Recordings

Honorary Ambassadors T Bone Burnett, Lamont Dozier, Sheila E, Skylar Grey, Jimmy Jam, RedOne, and Don Was to Help Generate Dialogue and Support for this Important Issue, with an Online Petition Available at www.givefansthecredit.com

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (August 23, 2012) — The Recording Academy® (www.grammy.com), the organization internationally known for the GRAMMY Awards®, is launching “Give Fans The Credit” — a new campaign that will help enhance fans’ discovery of new music by ensuring all music creators are credited for their work on digitally released recordings. Honorary Ambassadors who will help further awareness of this important initiative include: 12-time GRAMMY®-winning producer T Bone Burnett; GRAMMY-winning songwriter Lamont Dozier; singer/songwriter/percussionist Sheila E; singer/songwriter Skylar Grey; five-time GRAMMY-winning producer/songwriter Jimmy Jam; two-time GRAMMY-winning producer/songwriter RedOne; and three-time GRAMMY-winning producer Don Was. Additionally, an online petition for fans to sign and further information is available at www.givefansthecredit.com. For updates and breaking news, please visit www.grammy.com and The Recording Academy’s social networks on Twitter and Facebook: www.twitter.com/thegrammys, www.facebook.com/thegrammys.

“The staggering pace of digital innovation gives consumers access to more and more information, but in this case — digitally released music without liner notes — the music fan is getting less information,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. “We can watch movies online with the credits included, and the same should be true for digitally released recordings. If music devices can access millions of tracks in the cloud, we’re confident we can find a way to acknowledge those who created the tracks here on Earth.”

Songwriters, non-featured performers, producers and engineers make significant contributions to recordings, but as liner notes are becoming less common, these creators rarely receive credit on digital music devices. Currently, the only credits consumers are generally able to see are the song title, album, and artist; but music fans should have access to additional information: the songwriter who composed the work, the producers and engineers who shaped the sound, and the musicians who brought the song to life.

The “Give Fans The Credit” campaign will address this issue on several fronts. First, music fans who want information about their favorite tracks can sign the petition at www.givefansthecredit.com. Second, the campaign ambassadors and other leaders at The Recording Academy will begin a series of discussions with digital music services to brainstorm ways to deliver more robust crediting information on digital music platforms. At the same time, The Academy’s Producers & Engineers Wing® will continue its efforts to ensure accurate data is contained within the music files.

“By engaging consumers and the industry in this effort, we seek to give music fans the rich information and content they desire,” said Daryl Friedman, Chief Advocacy & Industry Relations Officer for The Recording Academy. “Discovery is a key part of today’s digital music services. By knowing who wrote, produced and played on the tracks, consumers will be able to discover even more great music. This will give both creators and fans the credit they deserve.”

Established in 1957, The Recording Academy is an organization of musicians, songwriters, producers, engineers and recording professionals that is dedicated to improving the cultural condition and quality of life for music and its makers. Internationally known for the GRAMMY Awards — the preeminent peer-recognized award for musical excellence and the most credible brand in music — The Recording Academy is responsible for groundbreaking professional development, cultural enrichment, advocacy, education and human services programs. The Academy continues to focus on its mission of recognizing musical excellence, advocating for the well-being of music makers and ensuring music remains an indelible part of our culture.

K-array and Hip Hop Legend Darryl McDaniels of Run DMC Help Inspire Underprivileged Children through New York Foundling’s Camp Felix

On Thursday, August 16th, children enrolled at Camp Felix participated in an exhuberant talent show, capping a two-week camp of activities that included arts and crafts, music, creative writing, drama and several workshops. Camp Felix, which is hosted each year by The New York Foundling — a prominent family services organization specializing in child welfare — is an overnight summer camp located in Putnam Valley, NY that features a variety of educational events and activities abandoned and underprivileged children.

Thursday evening’s talent show included a wide range of performances from children aged 8 to 13 such as synchronized Spanish dance routines, singer/songwriter performances and several vocal acts. The performances, which were broadcast to an audience of approximately 200 attendees through a pair of K-array KR 200 loudspeakers, also featured a performance of “Walk This Way” by Darryl McDaniels of Run DMC to cap off the evening.

Perhaps the highlight of the evening was when McDaniels gave a heartfelt message of hope to the children, stressing that they can overcome challenges and achieve whatever they want to in life. The New York Foundling, which helps over 13,000 people each year and whose guiding principle is ‘abandon no one,’ strengthens families and communities by helping each individual reach his or her potential. 

McDaniels was enthusiastic about the sound of the K-array loudspeakers and Sennheiser’s overall participation in the event: “Sennheiser had the K-array speakers at Camp Felix for the kids’ talent show and it was amazing,” he said. “People out in the parking lot wanted to know who was sounding so good at ‘the concert.’ And it was only two speakers!”

Ben Escobedo, RF services & field support engineer, technical services, Sennheiser, was on hand to set up and provide mixing services for the event: “This camp was for a great cause, and the K-array’s were just fantastic,” he said. “For an outdoor venue such as this, I needed something that was portable and could fit in my car, but that was powerful enough to provide great sound for the entire camp audience.”

Escobedo, who was able to get the system up and running in a matter of minutes due to its extreme portability, set up a simple mixer and connected Sennheiser microphones including an ew135 G3 wireless to provide flexibility on the stage, as well as e835, e935 and e965 wired microphones.

Clear-Com to Show Tempest®2400 Seamless Roaming and Masterbelt to the European Broadcast Market for the First Time at IBC 2012

AMSTERDAM, 7 SEPTEMBER 2012 ? Clear-Com®, a global leader in critical voice communication systems, is showcasing the Tempest®2400 with Seamless Roaming capability and Tempest®2400 MasterBelt digital wireless intercom for the first time in Europe at IBC 2012 (Stand 10.D29a). In addition to the advanced features, reliability and robustness that are the hallmarks of the Tempest intercom family, the Tempest2400 Seamless Roaming and Tempest2400 MasterBelt offer even more coverage options for users. They are ideal for broadcasters working multi-venue sporting events as well as those requiring ultra-portable communications.

The Tempest2400 Seamless Roaming feature affords broadcasters the ability to move freely and wirelessly throughout large venues that are separated by sizeable distances, such as multi-studio complexes and sports arenas. This ensures that users can walk from one coverage area to another without interference or dropouts. The Seamless Roaming feature allows BeltStation users to migrate between as many as 16 different Tempest2400 BaseStations (coverage areas or zones), allowing audio professionals to focus on critical production cues rather than on the settings of their wireless BeltStations. Both Seamless Roaming and iSelect Roaming are available to accommodate virtually every application need.

Tempest2400 BaseStations are linked together with the newest ZSync (Zero Synchronization) Technology. The ZSync Technology provides a zero-sync reference that coordinates the hopping patterns of all connected BaseStations every time the system is powered up, irrespective of random time variation in power-up sequences. This provides improved system performance and a seamless wireless experience.

Ideal for mobile productions, the Tempest2400 MasterBelt offers most of the advanced features, reliability and robustness of the original Tempest2400 rack-mount BaseStation within a compact, portable package. This enables users to coordinate and communicate hands-free. One MasterBelt can be paired with any standard Tempest2400 CP-222 two-channel BeltStation to create a full-featured two-channel system operating in 80MHz of spectrum in the 2.4-GHz band. The MasterBelt itself also functions as a BeltStation, allowing communications between up to six full-duplex wireless users. The MasterBelt includes a rechargeable lithium-ion polymer battery capable of up to eight hours of operation. It can also be powered by three standard AA alkaline batteries as a backup, providing four hours of operations. As with all Tempest wireless systems, it does not interfere with traditional wireless microphone, IFB or in-ear monitor systems that operate in the UHF band.

All Tempest systems are designed to be comfortable, rugged and robust, and can operate in harsh weather conditions. Each is protected by a durable, weather-resistant ABS co-polymer blend with a high-performance polyurethane over-mold.

The Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology is embedded within all Tempest systems, which utilizes a narrow signal band that is continually changing frequencies to burn through RF noise and interference. As a result, the Tempest system does not compete with signals from other 2.4 GHz wireless devices, minimizing frequency coordination and enabling flawless performance. Moreover, the wireless system features state-of-the-art 2xTX Transmission Voice Data Redundancy, which sends each packet of audio data twice on different frequencies and through different antennas, ensuring uninterrupted audio communications.

Tempest2400 systems offer three different modes of operations—normal, shared and split. All modes are supported under the Seamless Roaming function. A single Tempest2400 in normal mode can support between one and five full-duplex wireless users who always need to speak on the intercom system. However, in split or shared mode, an unlimited number of users can monitor the conversation and share talk capability. A combination of Tempest systems operating in either normal or shared mode can co-exist in the same environment for the ultimate in flexibility.

St. Michael’s Church in New York City Discovers New Clarity in Music and Spoken Word with Recent K-array Loudspeaker Installation

Churches can provide an inspirational and pleasing atmosphere for congregants to enjoy both music and sermon messages. But frequently, challenging acoustic environments and highly reflective interior spaces can make creating a quality listening experience an enormous challenge. Recently, St. Michael’s Church in New York City upgraded its audio system for masses and services and chose Sennheiser-distributed K-array loudspeakers — not only for their unmatched audio quality, but also for their ability to blend into the existing aesthetics of the church.

The St. Michael’s Episcopal Church, which is located on the upper West Side of Manhattan, has been a mainstay for parishioners since its construction was completed in 1807. Its reverberant space makes it ideal for music performances, but the existing loudspeaker system that was in place more than 25 years was simply not up to the task of accurately reproducing both spoken word and live music performances with the quality and intelligibility that was required.

Once St. Michael’s made the decision to upgrade, authorized Sennheiser dealer PanAVid recommended installing K-array speakers and amplifiers to increase both sonic integrity and intelligibility, thereby improving the overall worship experience for congregants.

“The church’s reverberation makes it difficult to produce spoken word sound that is clear to all members of the congregation, but the K-array speakers and amplifiers provided crystal clear sound that has solved the problem,” said Robert Loehr, vice president of operations at PanAVid.

PanAVid installed two K-array KK 100 loudspeakers for the main system, two KKS 50s for the main sub-woofer system, and a total of six KK 50s as delay support speakers: two in the balconies and the other four spread throughout the sanctuary, all controlled by a programmable Roland digital mixing console.

“Although the church is beautiful in its classic design, this provides a unique acoustic challenge making it difficult for many of our congregation to hear the services,” said John Edward Cantrell, St. Michael’s Church’s choirmaster, organist and chief audio engineer. “K-array speakers and amplifiers helped us take advantage of the high frequencies the room favors, while boosting the overall quality of our spoken word services.”

The combination of the KK 50, KK 100 and KKS 50 made it possible for PanAVid to design a system that would meet the needs of St. Michael’s Church. The KK 50 and KK 100 speakers are compact line array elements comprised of multiple 2” neodymium transducers in a strong stainless steel chassis — each casting a wide dispersion pattern that can be configured horizontally or vertically. The KKS50 is a compact line array bass system comprised of 4 x 4” neodymium transducers housed in a stainless steel chassis that can also be configured horizontally or vertically.

The interior of St. Michael’s Church, which has a reverb time of approximately 3.5 seconds, has been particularly challenging for spoken word messages to be heard loud and clear. But Cantrell says the new K-array-based system generates a pleasing, crystal clear sound that provides clarity throughout the entire church.

With the new K-array installation now complete, Cantrell is able to spend more time creating inspirational music by playing the organ and leading the choir rather than at the mixing console grappling with interior acoustics and audio intelligibility.

AES/EBU Announce Collaboration on Next-Generation Audio Over IP

Common Goal – Interoperability

NEW YORK: AES Standards Committee Chair Bruce Olson reports an important step forward in the development of Audio over IP in broadcasting: The Audio Engineering Society and the EBU have announced a collaboration with the goal of producing a new common packet-based network standard for linear PCM audio. This liaison is officially entitled “Next generation AES/EBU Interface Based On IP Technology.”

These two organizations have a history of fruitful collaboration. First published in 1985, the AES3 standard, also known as the AES/EBU interface, is a fundamental standard for the transport of digital audio signals between professional devices. The new liaison is a continuation of this work, which will benefit the whole professional audio industry.

The primary AES/EBU focus is on audio interoperability over high-performance IP networks, with the further goal of interoperability with the EBU’s common framework for audio contribution over IP, ACIP. The initiative is partially inspired by the ACIP project group’s interoperability recommendations for audio over wide-area IP networks. Through the ACIP2 group, chaired by the IRT’s Sonja Langhans, the EBU represents the technical interests of a key user group for the new standard, the public broadcasters of Europe.

Within the AES, the work has already started, with the project known as AES-X192. The group is chaired by Kevin Gross. A recently published draft is now being discussed among project participants, including some ACIP2 members.

New project participants are welcome. EBU Members or manufacturers working in the broadcast domain can start by joining the ACIP2 project group. Others can directly contact AES task group SC-02-12-H, which is open to any directly and materially affected individuals.. For further information visit www.X192.org. To participate, please follow the links at www.x192.org/join/; membership in SC-02-12-H is open to any directly and materially affected individuals.

It should also be noted that the 133rd AES Convention, scheduled for Oct. 26 – 29 at SF’s Moscone Center will introduced a dedicated, Networked Audio Track Chaired by noted engineer and long-time AES member, Tim Shuttleworth, the six Workshops and Tultorials developed for this event will feature participants including Sonja Langhans and Kevin Gross. They will address many of the Workflow issues and related concerns currently acting as ‘stumbling blocks’ in the path of interoperability.
