    We’re currently in-between touring seasons. Cables and snakes have been tested and repaired, wood painted, and cases treated to fresh new stenciling. All racks have been repackaged to their standard configurations, trucks subjected to annual maintenance, and warehouse floor swept - twice. Aside from a stray show here and there, for many hire companies, things are pretty quiet. Yes, these are the days that turn sound company owner and manager thoughts to Alternative Revenue Sources (ARS). The contracting/install market is… View this story

    The Lee County Emergency Operations Center (EOC), located in Fort Myers, Florida, is the official county warning point for natural or man-made hazards such as hurricanes, water shortages, and wildfires that may threaten the area. Lee County’s EOC is a state-of-the-art facility that makes extensive use of audiovisual equipment—and to ensure trouble free audio, the facility utilizes Lectrosonics’ Aspen audio processing technology. Tampa, FL-based Encore Broadcast sales manager Douglas Taylor was responsible for working with the Lee County Emergency Management… View this story

    This article is provided by AudioFanzine.   The goal of this guide is to help develop knowledge of basic acoustic principles, in order to provide further understanding of the techniques of sound engineering and recording. Each section has a theme that is first defined in technical terms and then further explained in practical terms with respect to audio. Timber Timber (pronounced /tam-ber’/) is a sound’s identity. This identity depends on the physical characteristics of the sound’s medium (the matter or… View this story

    Lowell Manufacturing Company has introduced its new LRS Series desktop rack stand. Made in the USA with 100% certified U.S. steel, the LRS has a small footprint with just enough rack space (8 or 12 rack units) to hold smaller AV or IT equipment arrangements where space is limited and a full sized cabinet is not needed.  The compact design works as a freestanding rack or it can be bolted to a desk. Either way, it’s ideal for convenient access… View this story

    Registration is now open for the first AES international conference on Sound Field Control, slated to take place at the University of Surrey, Guildford, UK, September 2-4, 2013. Held within a short distance of London’s major international airports, this conference aims to bring together engineers and perceptual scientists from around the world to share their research in this fast-moving field, and to discuss the numerous interactions between acoustics, signal processing, psychoacoustics and auditory cognition. “This is an unmissable event for… View this story

    John Murray 07/08/13 05:34 AM,
    Question: A while ago, I wondered what caused a constant directivity (CD) horn to exhibit a roll-off different from any other. I made the assumption the phenomenon existed after seeing numerous processing products that include “CD horn compensation.” I was told that no such thing existed, and that the roll-off exhibited was due to the break point associated with the diaphragm mass of the driver. Could you please elaborate on what the truth is here? And what is this break… View this story

    Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce the 3G-AE 100, a high performance audio extractor for 3G-SDI, HD-SDI, and SDI digital video signals. It automatically detects the incoming 3G-SDI/HD-SDI/SDI data rate, de-embeds up to eight channels of digital audio, and then converts it to line level, analog audio. The 3G-AE 100 features an equalized 3G-SDI/HD-SDI/SDI input and eight analog audio outputs that are switch-selectable to support audio groups 1 through 4. A buffered and reclocked 3G-SDI/HD-SDI/SDI loop-through allows two 3G-AE 100… View this story

    For the purposes of introduction, the gramophone and the phonograph have been considered a single invention since the former evolved out of the latter to eventually replace it. Both were inscribing, groove based systems. The gramophone/phonograph was the keystone innovation on which the record industry was invented. A good place to begin an exploration of the technological development of the record and the industry it spawned is in the early 1860s. This was when a Frenchman named Leon Scott, working… View this story
