prismpicture4Avolites launches Prism Zero video application
Friday, 2 September 2022

UK - Avolites has released its new standalone video application Prism Zero to bring simplicity to complex video design and integration. The application expands the Prism range of live production tools alongside significant upgrades to Prism Player. The new platform is designed for venues, corporate events or art installations where there may not be a video specialist on site.
Prism Zero expands the set of complementary tools to give designers a straightforward platform to integrate video into their projects. Building on the feature set of Prism Player 1.1, the software enables media to be easily integrated, previewed, cropped and played back.
Prism Zero connects directly with all Avolites Titan lighting consoles via NDI connection and is controlled through the Synergy settings in both platforms. Playback, layer control (such as aspect ratio and colour adjustment), media transfer and pixel mapping can all be controlled via Synergy for seamless lighting and video integration. Video can be pixel mapped directly onto colour mixing fixtures. Media clips in different codecs can be previewed and converted on-the-fly including into the high-quality AiM codec.
“Incorporating video into projects can be complex and time consuming,” explains Paul Wong, Managing Director at Avolites. “In the current climate, more lighting designers are taking on more responsibilities and adding more elements to a show can mean learning a new software platform. Prism Zero provides the first step into integrating video into designs with a simple user interface and powerful

Speaking ahead of the show, Stuart Gibbons OBE, managing director, Le Mark Group said: “We’re delighted to be returning to the show again this year and we’re really excited to see what people think of the new products we will have on the stand. The Dirty Rigger backpack has been built around industry feedback. It’s comfortable to wear and incorporates a tough, waterproof ‘hard case’ base plus a water-resistant fabric. We really rate this backpack as a product that will safely hold both tools and a laptop.
“Meanwhile, the Dirty Rigger ladies’ work trousers will be modelled by a mannequin on the stand. Featuring a new, durable, four-way stretch fabric, the trousers offer extreme flexibility, durability and comfort.”
With an industry drive to become more sustainable and circular, Le Mark Group is proud to be launching Paper-Tak. Stuart explained: “Our customers are keen to reduce their use of plastics whenever possible. To help them achieve this, we’ve produced Paper-Tak - a tough paper-based tape

 
 
railsplitPLASA Show 2022: Artistic Licence launches railSplit uno
Thursday, 1 September 2022

UK - Artistic Licence is to launch railSplit uno, a bidirectional DMX512/RDM isolator and signal booster, with a ‘data fixer’ for dodgy DMX, at PLASA Sow 2022. The product contains prescient technology that addresses new European Electrical Installation regulations that have recently come into force.
Fittingly, railSplit uno is being entered into the Innovation Awards at this year's PLASA Show. Visitors can see the product in the Awards gallery and at the Artistic Licence stand, D15.
railSplit uno was designed in response to the new European Electrical Installation regulations IEC 60364 (BS 7671). The regulations require Surge Protection Devices (SPDs) to be fitted (including to data lines such as DMX512) for many types of lighting installation.
The existing Artistic Licence product, railSplit extreme, has internal SPDs and so provides a partial solution. However, there are two potential issues:
The new regulations will require installers to cram DMX512 SPDs into ever smaller spaces (e.g.into existing electrical installation boxes).
The SPD needs some way of informing the user if it has been damaged by a protection event. railSplit uno solves both problems. It is a combined DMX512/RDM booster, isolator and SPD presented in a DIN-rail unit just 36mm wide.
Surge protection is achieved using a combination of different electronics. Part self-heals after a protection event. The other part is sacrificial and becomes spent after a number of protection events (usually triggered by nearby lightning strikes). The problem with most SPDs

 
ccx8-and-ccx15-collage-v2Fulcrum Acoustic extends CCX range
Thursday, 1 September 2022

USA - Fulcrum Acoustic has announced the introduction of two new additions to the company’s CCX range of compact coaxial passive cardioid loudspeakers: the 8in CCX8 series and the 15in CCX15 series.
The CCX 8in coaxial system is offered in two horn patterns: CCX896 (90° x 60°) and CCX826 (120° x 60°).
Like the CCX 12in models, the CCX15 15in coaxial system is offered in a full range of five patterns: CCX1595 (90° x 45°), CCX1565 (60° x 45°), CCX1577 (75° x 75°), CCX1500 (100° x 100°), and CCX1526 (120° x 60°).suited to high-fidelity, foreground distributed systems, as well as for systems requiring targeted pattern control. Their trapezoidal shaped enclosures allow for mounting very close to ceilings with minimal effect on sight lines, which facilitates acceptance by interior designers and architects.
They are suitable for houses of worship, theatres, restaurants, transportation facilities, theme parks, and more. Other features include mounting brackets, hydrophobic stainless steel rear ports for outdoor applications, and weather resistant and custom colour options.
"Unlike conventional loudspeakers that trade off low frequency (LF) directional control for compact enclosures, our Passive Cardioid Technology enables CCX loudspeakers to achieve unprecedented LF/HF control for products of their size," says Fulcrum Acoustic co-founder and vice president of R&D David Gunness. "Combining the benefits of this technology with Temporal Equalization (TQ), single-amplified CCX products deliver impressive LF directional control, improv

broaman-mux22-frontBroaMan debuts12G version of Mux22
Tuesday, 30 August 2022

The Netherlands - High bandwidth fibre network specialists, BroaMan, has extended its range of Mux22 devices with the addition of the Mux22 12G - an all-in-one 12G-enabled unit. It will make its debut on their stand (Hall 8, Stand A97) at next month’s IBC2022 broadcast show at the RAI, Amsterdam.
Mux22 in its different guises has been providing solutions in the broadcast environment for nearly a decade due to its protocol independence, and ability to process any signal in just a small 1RU chassis.
Since the 4K era has been firmly adopted by both the commercial and consumer markets, it was only a matter of time before customers asked BroaMan to enable 12G transmission in its devices, states BroaMan MD, Tine Helmle. “Up until now, 12G was available for our Repeat 48 and Repeat 8 Nano, but what the market was really waiting for was the possibility of upgrading our point-to-point device … which is our unique Mux22. With its many capabilities and Optocore compatibility, it can also form part of an Optocore loop.”
The icing on the cake, she emphasised, is the option to upgrade existing Mux22 devices to the new 12G version.
Like all Mux22 devices the new interface will support eight video streams of 12G, an SDI standard supporting greater resolution, frame rates and colour fidelity. At four times the bandwidth of HD it carries around 12 Gigabits per second, making it ideal for the 4K UHD format. This fibre infrastructure also supports 3G, HD and SD-SDI (up to 80 channels) - as well as acting as a standalone 3G/HD/SD-SDI router and repeater.

maverick-storm-2-beamwashPLASA Show 2022: Chauvet answers the questions
Tuesday, 30 August 2022

UK - “What’s new?” Unscientific research has shown those to be the most common words uttered by visitors when they first enter a trade show stand. Those who pose that question to the Chauvet Professional team at PLASA stand C-16 will be treated to some exciting answers, as the company continues to build on its recent impressive string of IP65 rated product introductions, particularly in regard to their class leading weight.

Friday, 26 August 2022

Europe - KV2 Audio has announced the launch of the 500 series range of processors which, for the first time, are available directly from KV2’s online store at https://shop.kv2audio.com/
The range comprises three models; the TCL thermo-compressor/limiter; the QD8 stereo 8-band master EQ with line driver; and the MPA microphone preamplifier.
The TCL is an analogue thermo audio compressor featuring a superior natural RMS detector and dynamic voice bass enhancement control. Its patented design offers ‘an exceptionally musical and natural compression that is a component part of its real-time input, rather than a typical side-fed gain reduction circuit attempting to either follow or anticipate compression demands’.
QD8 is a George Krampera 8-band stereo equaliser specifically designed to highlight a desired band without adversely affecting the overall sonic landscape. Whilst not intended for tuning out room modes, the frequency bands and filter types have been precisely chosen after extensive research, to perfectly align with the science of human hearing and our perception of achieving the ultimate spectral balance. In a live scenario, faced with a number of different sources, program types, or performance genres at a festival or concert, the equaliser is very musical, intuitive and provides an exceptionally quick way to shape any mixed content to the sound you want to hear.
The MPA is a high-definition microphone and musical instrument preamplifier with Class-A circuitry and a quality transformer balanced output. A stepped input gain selecto

prodigy-update-automatorDirectOut Prodigy series adds Automator
Wednesday, 24 August 2022

Germany - The current system update of DirectOut’s Prodigy series gives the devices another boost in meeting the requirements of the market. For the modular audio converter Prodigy.MC and the multifunctional audio processor Prodigy.MP the Automator Licence is now available.
With Automator it is possible to programme triggers to run tasks in an automated way. Triggers can be coming from different sources, such as parameter or status changes in the device itself, a MIDI or OSC command from an external device, a cron job (periodically recurring trigger) or can be created based on time (e.g. LTC).
Device actions such as gains, mutes, snapshot recalls, input manager switches and EARSTM source selection or GPOs can be triggered. And it is also possible to send custom defined messages via OSC and MIDI, or to hosts via HTTP, UDP, TCP commands.
Taking into account the feedback of their customers, DirectOut implemented Disaster Recovery for their unique EARSTM feature to be yet more secure – first used at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022. For the Prodigy series, a solution with a third multichannel audio source was implemented, which is automatically selected in case the main and backup multichannel input (MADI or audio network) fail.
Further features were added to the series, such as configurable crossfades for groups as well as the automatic 4 Wire patch function for the Routing tab.
For Prodigy.MP specifically a new IIR filter was implemented - The First Order All Pass for Live Sound, which allows for phase rotation of 90 degrees at se

neumannNeumann unveils DSP-powered KH 150 monitor
Tuesday, 23 August 2022

Germany - Studio specialist Neumann.Berlin expands its line of reference-class studio monitors with the KH 150. The bi-amplified, DSP-controlled loudspeaker features the same high-resolution tweeter as all Neumann studio monitors and a newly developed 6.5” woofer with ultra-low distortion and high SPL capability.
Despite its rather compact format, the KH 150 offers ‘outstanding clarity’, even at high volume, and extended low-end. The KH 150 has a flat frequency response from 39 Hz to 21 kHz (±3 dB) and is recommended for all applications from broadcast to music production, including styles that require a powerful, deep low-end and/or elevated listening levels such as urban music, EDM, and film scoring.
“The KH 150 closes the gap between the KH 120 and the KH 310, but it does far more than that,” says portfolio manager Stephan Mauer. “Its internal DSP engine offers many benefits such as a phase linearized crossover and a new level in tonal consistency. The KH 150 is made to extremely low tolerances of no more than ± 0.8 dB! And you can hear it, too: Stereo imaging is razor-sharp.”
Digital electronics also allows the KH 150 to be calibrated via Neumann’s MA 1 Automatic Monitor Alignment (sold separately). “The KH 150 follows the same philosophy as all Neumann studio monitors: highest linearity, lowest distortion, no coloration, and perfect adaptability to any acoustic environment,” states Neumann’s CEO Ralf Oehl. “In our pursuit of sonic perfection, we not only optimize every parameter of the loudspeaker itself, we also incl

 
sully-4c654sx2022-smlPLASA Show 2022: Robert Juliat presents Sully
Tuesday, 23 August 2022

UK - Robert Juliat will be exhibiting at PLASA Show 2022 on stand C11 with its exclusive UK distributor, Ambersphere Solutions.
Robert Juliat will present Sully LED fixtures, including profile and Fresnel spots, in warm and cool white LED (Sully White), and the new 4C coloured LED models (Sully 4C) which were first seen at Prolight + Sound earlier this year.
Robert Juliat’s LED followspot range will be represented by the 300W Roxie, 600W Oz and the new long-throw 800W Arthur LT followspots illustrating how Robert Juliat creates followspots to suit all sizes of venue.
RJ Sully White was launched in 2020. It comprises a complete family - profile, single lens and followspot - of high-quality 115W white LED lighting fixtures. These are all available with a warm (3000K) or cool (5700K) white source, and have a guaranteed light output equivalent to, or greater than, that of a 1000W tungsten lamp.

Monday, 22 August 2022

USA - Introduced in March, 2021, the Ovation Rêve E-3 LED ellipsoidal combines a full spectrum of saturated colours with vivid whites featuring +/- green adjustments, along with a host of other features. Now Chauvet Professional has announced the Ovation Réve E-3 IP, which offers all the output and performance of its popular predecessor, along with the added benefit of being an IP65-rated fixture.
The Rêve E-3 IP has been designed to excel indoors or out in theatre, broadcast, event, and production applications. The new fixture offers the same 2800K to 8000K colour temperature pre-sets as the original Rêve E-3 to deliver unparalleled quality of light. An emulated “red shift” for a tungsten-like look and four 16-bit dimming curves add to its versatility, while its adjustable yoke make it easy to mount in a wide range of spaces.
Powered by 91 LEDs, the Rêve E-3 IP light engine produces a ‘rainbow of realistic, captivating colours’. Additionally, a virtual colour wheel matches a wide spectrum of popular gel options.
Suitable for indoor and outdoor film and broadcast applications, the Rêve E-3 IP has silent fan-off modes. What’s more, its six adjustable PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) modes protect against on-camera flickering. Thanks to its IP65 rating, the new fixture is very technician friendly, as its inside remains dust and debris free, making it easier to maintain.
“The introduction of the Ovation Réve E-3 IP is the latest example of our total commitment to becoming a comprehensive resource for IP65 rated products,” said A
