Earlier this year, International pop sensation Katy Perry performed a free concert in the small but prominent town of Bright in Victoria’s North East. ‘Fight On’ was a family-friendly event held to thank emergency services and first responders to Australia’s recent bushfire crisis. An exceptional popstar needs exceptional sound, and this is where local production specialist Densal Audio was able to deliver. A formidable array of RCF’s first-class workhorse HDL 20-A units were flown on both sides of the stage, an immense 11 units per side. Front fill was provided by groupings of RCF’s TT 22-A II high definition point source speakers. Highlighting their versatility, side, and rear fill was provided by further sets of HDL 20-A units, ground-stacked into small arrays to ensure coverage from all angles of the Pioneer Park Recreation Reserve.

Cinzella Festival returns to Grottaglie (Taranto) in the beautiful location of the Fantiano Quarries. Despite the social distancing guidelines for outdoor venues, the audio system of choice is the RCF HDL 10-A. Together with the main audio system, Provinciali Service chose RCF for all the audio on stage. In its fourth edition, the Cinzella Festival is the festival dedicated to music and cinema, which has become an authentic celebration of artistic and cultural attraction between the splendid Murgian hills and the deep sea strips of the Ionian-Salento peninsula. Directed by the actor Michele Riondino, the musical line-up includes live performances of Diodato, winner of the Sanremo 2020 Festival, Andrea Laszlo De Simone, Bud Spencer Blues Explosion, Mama Marjas & Don Ciccio, and Guano Padano. As per tradition, the festival took place at the Fantiano quarries, a location with a vast landscape with breathtaking scenery: a former tuff quarry that has now become a natural park. The Cinzella Festival owes its name to a figure well known to the popular culture of the area. Cinzella was a famous "companion" of men and youngsters, a woman so special as to remain etched in the collective memory. Legend has it that the statue named after the woman venerated tourists who often mistaken it for a religious icon. "The project is straightforward, with two classic 10-module HDL 10-A line arrays with three subs HDL 15-AS placed at the top of the PA, and two side fills per side, each with six HDL 10-AS subs,” says System Designer Luca Scornavacca, who describes the audio project and the choices made. "I really like this configuration for two reasons. First: they can project the low mids where the PA does not reach. Second: this configuration improves the distribution of the low mids of the cluster. The line array is in overshoot configuration, adding a few more boxes than usual to maintain a constant SPL throughout the venue without any pressure drop in the back rows." The HDL 15-AS is a 15" high power hangable subwoofer, designed to integrate perfectly into a suspended array of HDL 10-A modules. It transforms the audio system into a 4-way system (2-way of HDL 10, one of HDL 15-AS hanging and the fourth with six subs 21" SUB 9007-AS and six more 18" SUB 8006-AS on the ground). Antonello Borrelli, system manager and FOH sound engineer, explains that "The low-frequency section is a hybrid approach and has been designed to ensure good coverage. At the same time it satisfies the sound taste of the various audio technicians who accompany the numerous bands of the festival." Scornavacca specifies that "Subs are split into two stacks of three SUB 8006-ASs and one array of six 9007-ASs in the center." On the stage, managed by sound engineer Francesco Gaudio, two SUB 8006-ASs, and an HDL 10-A module as side-fill, 8 15" NX 15-SMA stage monitors are installed and a reinforcement of two SUB 8004-AS for the drum-fill.

With over 50 years of ministry and community service, Tabernacle Church, located just outside Nashville, in Clarksville Tennessee, decided in 2017 that to keep up with their tremendous growth, they would undergo a monumental change with a grand new construction project, to reemerge as Mosaic Church—adding 65,000 square feet to their campus, including a 1,500 seat performance space. When audio and integration firm, Holly Media was asked to oversee the expansion of the performance space, owner Fred Holly, with over 30 years of pro audio experience, led the design effort. “With new dynamics and changing needs, the scope of the ministry has changed—it’s become a new work,” said Holly. “Tabernacle seemed old fashioned. The name didn’t match the demographic of our church because it’s very diverse—and it’s thriving. The new Mosaic Church wanted to reflect that.” The original structure was a smaller sanctuary [about 200 seats] and was insufficient space for many years. The church adapted for larger congregations by expanding Sunday services to four per day. Recently through COVID, the church was mobile, moving its worship service to a local high school, setting up and tearing down in the parking lot each week. Aside from general construction, Holly focused mainly on the performance space, and the subsequent procurement of an audio system and its installation. “Early on with my ideas for the shape of the room, I didn’t want to encounter any problems later on. I wanted the diffusion to be completely natural — with the splay of the walls and installing surface treatment. Not only does Holly Media tackle the challenges between space design and installing sound systems, Holly pulled in one of his trusted resources for advanced surface techniques and sound dampening. “Usually when clients show me plans for a church, it’s obvious architects know nothing about acoustics,” said Jay Perdue, owner and designer at Perdue Acoustics, and the lead instructor of architectural acoustics at InfoComm University. “They’re more focused on what it’s going to look like versus what it’s going to sound like.” Upon first glance, Perdue knew something about this new space was very unique. “When I first saw the room design, I thought Fred really did his homework,’ said Perdue. “The shape of the room was very nice with no corners to deal with. I checked all the parallelisms and found slap back on the back wall was a non-issue. I not only check a room for echo and reverberation, I conduct intelligibility testing as well. After a 13-point check throughout the space, it has the flattest response I’ve ever seen.” Holly has worked with most major audio brands and was looking for a sound system to deliver. “Being in this business for as long as I have, I’ve come from the old school thinking that having a solid, heavy box would also give solid frequency response — or a chance at it,” said Holly. “At first I thought to spec a JBL V 20 rig, but in the spirit of transformation, I wanted to find something new.” When Holly was referred to RCF and was introduced to Jim Reed [RCF product specialist and system designer] his curiosity was piqued. “When we spoke, Jim said he was willing to demo an RCF TT rig personally, he had my attention.” noted Holly. “I sent him the final room schematic and he returned an EASE drawing, and I was like, ‘when can you come’? [laughs] I was very excited about the possibilities.” Reed put together a complete system which included: 16 [2x8] TTL 55-A active line array modules, four companion TTS 56-AS active subwoofers, two TT 25-CXA active floor monitors, and four TT 20-CXA active monitors for the stage. For added coverage, Reed also added nine HDL 26-A active line arrays for center and front fills for added coverage. At the helm is an Allen & Health dLive s7000 mixing console. “Pulling everything out of the box, I was pleasantly surprised at the weight of it [TTL 55-A module]. The stuff is hardcore, man [laughs]. I’m an old military guy, so I know that if it’s heavy, it must be expensive.” Once all the products were out of their boxes and flown, Holly was also surprised at the time it took to test the sound system.

Das San-Marino-Stadion auf dem Monte Titano ist das Fussballareal des gleichnamigen Mikrostaates. Es wurde 1969 erbaut und ist unter dem Namen Serravalle-Stadion bekannt. Die kürzlich durchgeführte vollständige Erneuerung führte zum Bau eines Service-Turms mit Fernsehstudios, einem großen Presseraum, Fitnessbereich mit Phsysiotherapie und Krankenstation, sowie einer großen LED-Wand und einem neu renovierten RCF-Audiosystem. Das nur wenige hundert Meter von der italienischen Grenze entfernt gelegene Stadion gehört zu den ersten Stadien der Welt, die einen Kunst-Natur-Mischrasen verwendet haben; es verfügt über eine Gesamtkapazität von 5.000 Sitzplätzen und war Austragungsort der Spiele der U-21-Europameisterschaft 2019. Im Stadion von San Marino fanden auch die Eröffnungszeremonien der Spiele der Kleinstaaten Europas 1985, 2001 und 2017 sowie die Ausgaben der Rallye Legend seit 2002 statt. Die Sportstätte ist als UEFA Kategorie Drei-Anlage ratifiziert. Es beherbergt auch die Nationalmannschaften der Republik San Marino, die San Marino-Meisterschaften und den Titano-Cup sowie die Vorrundenspiele der Champions und der Europa League. "Nachdem wir in eine große LED-Wand investiert hatten, waren wir zuversichtlich, dass ein professionelles Audiosystem die Stimmung des Publikums während der Spiele und Veranstaltungen unterstützen würde", kommentiert Elya Bonifazi von der Organisationsabteilung des Fussballverbandes von San Marino. Der Fussballverband von San Marino befasst sich mit allen Sportinvestitionen im Stadion, mit Einrichtungen und Technologien, die für alle anderen nationalen Aktivitäten frei zugänglich sein werden. "Als der Fussballverband beschloss, das Audiosystem aufzurüsten, habe ich alle Angebote der besten Marken geprüft. Dann hörte ich die RCF-Systeme in einigen Stadien, und ich hatte keine Zweifel; es ist das für unsere Struktur am besten geeignete System. Nachdem wir eine Ausschreibung mit den Installationsfirmen durchgeführt hatten, konnten wir eines der besten Audiosysteme der Welt haben, und wir sind sicher, dass auch unser Publikum seine Klangqualität zu schätzen wissen wird". Angesichts des Verwendungszwecks und der Höhe der Überdachung umfasste der Systementwurf ein System, bestehend aus acht unter dem Dach aufgehängten P3115T-Koaxiallautsprechern und sechs P3115T-Koaxiallautsprechern für den überdachten Teil der Südtribüne und zwei [2] P6215-Koaxiallautsprechern für den nicht überdachten Teil. Zusätzlich sind zwei P6215 für die Beschallung des Spielfeldes im Einsatz. Zur Vervollständigung des Systems wurden zwei HS2200-Subwoofer installiert, die über das gesamte Klangspektrum für ausreichend Schub sorgen. Bei den P3115-T und P6215 handelt es sich um wetterfeste Zweiwege-Koaxiallautsprecher, die ebenfalls zum Systemdesign gehören. Mit ihren Hörnern mit konstanter Richtwirkung erreichen sie eine optimale Abdeckung und verfügen über genügend Leistung und Effizienz, um für eine Vielzahl von Anwendungen sowohl im Außen- als auch im Innenbereich geeignet zu sein.

Edison, New Jersey—King Lear, an epic tale written by William Shakespeare, could be argued as being one of his best stories next to Hamlet. Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear is an epic tale of sorrow, forgiveness, madness, and reconciliation of family. Shakespeare’s timeless ability to portray characters who are powerful and complex, has also masterfully demonstrated the “music of language” through his work. What once was a 300-seat movie theatre Bristol Riverside Theatre (BRT) is located in the historic district of Bristol Borough in Eastern Pennsylvania. The theatre itself, built in 1937 and reopened as a performance hall in 1986, is well-known for bringing local and national artists to the stage, producing over 200 performances each year. Earlier this year, BRT invited Eric Tucker, of New York City’s acclaimed Bedlam Theatre to direct the production of King Lear with a fresh interpretation of the Shakespearean classic. The show ran for several weeks, starting January 28th and ending February 16, 2020.

Sberbank is the largest bank in Russia and a leading international financial institution. It is Russia’s most valuable brand and one of the top 25 brands in the world. Sberbank has 11 regional banks that are responsible for the operations of more than 14,000 branches in 83 of Russia’s regions. RCF’s Russian distributor ARIS and Polymedia equipped the central office’s entrance zone with a sound system for background broadcasting and vocal announcements. “The main goal was to equip the entrance zone of the central office with a sound system for background music and vocal announcements and a mobile system for events. Glass walls and the abundance of reflective surfaces are the real acoustic challenge of this project,” says Alexandr Shamray, Sales Director of Aris. “We decided to implement a steerable vertical array RCF VSA 850 MKII and the point source wall speakers RCF MQ 30P-W.” The installation extends to more than 750 square meters covering the waiting area, self-service area, thematic exhibitions, meeting and customer service areas, access control zone, and the balcony. “The RCF VSA 850 II column is a vertical controlled array with eight amplifiers and eight 3.5 inches speakers,” says Dmitry Semenov, Lead Project Manager of Polymedia “VSA 850 II provides accurate sound directivity to the listening area. Using RCF’s RDNet software, you can control the radiation pattern by controlling the width and inclination of the sound beam, which allows you to accurately articulate our audio sources .” The miniature two-way coaxial sound projector RCF MQ 30P is ideal for complex architectural solutions,” continues Shamray “The loudspeaker features high intelligibility and a wide frequency range to ensure background music is smooth. The integrated support makes it easy to mount the speaker to a wall or ceiling and orient it in any direction. It’s compact and looks great, perfect for our application.” As a mobile speaker system, the RCF D-LINE line array series was proposed. “The HDL 30-A with HDL 38-AS became the absolute right decision for Polymedia. “The HDL-30 has the necessary sound pressure level and sufficient headroom for these rooms and RDNet control helps to quickly achieve a good result”. states Semenov.

The rap genre has recently been resurrected as the mainstream music in India. Hip-hop artist and rapper Divine, aka Vivian Fernandes, one of the pioneers of the underground Indian hip-hop rap scene, is creating a buzz across the nation with his hard-hitting tracks. In 2019, Divine notably contributed to the soundtrack of Bollywood’s blockbuster musical drama film Gully Boy, inspired by his (and peer Naezy’s) street rapper days. With his knack for penning his own hits songs, along with an electrifying live act, along with meticulous flow, and his approachable persona, Divine has become hugely popular since founding the Gully Gang. Chennai recently witnessed his high-adrenaline show at Phoenix Market Chennai Courtyard. Along with DJ JD, and rapper Shaw Rule, Divine’s Gully Gang captivated the crowd with his popular numbers. Soundgear from Chennai were the rental partner who provided an RCF HDL series PA for the event. “We have been in the pro-audio and lighting rental services for the past 12 years. Our main focus is on live sound reinforcement and we handle a lot of live bands and artists, music festivals, corporate gigs and weddings,” says Balaji, Director of Soundgear. He continues, “For the Gully Gang show, we deployed 12 RCF HDL-50A and 12 SUB 8006-AS for FOH. Additionally for both centre fills and delay, six RCF HDL 20-A per side have been deployed for more even coverage across the 2,000 capacity venue. Our client, Phoenix Chennai & Times of India, appreciated our efforts and the band’s sound engineer, Adhiraj Singh, who had the pleasure of operating the system, had nothing but good things to say about it.”

Als das 84 Millionen Pfund teure International Convention Centre Wales (ICCW) im September letzten Jahres eröffnet wurde, war es nicht nur das Erste seiner Art in Wales. Dieses Gemeinschaftsprojekt der walisischen Regierung und des Celtic Manor Resort bietet eine beeindruckende Grundfläche von 26 000 m2 für Besprechungen, Konferenzen und Ausstellungen (das entspricht der Fläche von vier internationalen Rugbyfeldern). Integriert ist zudem eine 4 000 m2 große, säulenfreie und vielseitig konfigurierbare Haupthalle, die den Technikausrüster Stage Electrics vor große Herausforderungen stellte. Die Lösung bestand in einem Komplettsystem aus dem umfangreichen Katalog von RCF, das fast 800 Lautsprecher (und insgesamt über 1 000 RCF-Komponenten) zu einer Mehrzweck-PA in der Haupthalle und mobilen Systemen für die Besprechungsräume verbindet und mit einem vollständig konformen System für Durchsagen und Sprachalarm kombiniert ist. Stage Electrics war für die AV, Beleuchtung (darunter auch öffentliche Räume) und bewegliche Technik zuständig und fungierte als Berater für die Bühnentechnik nach den Vorgaben von Russel Phillips, Vice President, Facilites and Development bei Celtic Manor. Als Erstes mussten Simon Cooper, Leiter des Entwicklerteams von Stage Electrics, und Business Development Manager Saul Eagles ein stringentes, aber kompromissloses Sparprogramm auflegen, um den Budgetrahmen nicht zu sprengen. Stage Electrics installiert seit über 15 Jahren sehr erfolgreich RCF Systeme für eine Vielzahl von Anwendungen, wie Dan Aldridge, Commercial & Projects Director, betont.

The RCF catalogue extends the installation range at Integrated Systems Europe, assisting the architect and installer with application-focused series of high-quality products. The new RCF BUSINESS MUSIC line offers a complete range of products enabling Commercial Audio systems to be designed for both background and foreground music. It is conceived for all applications that require high audio quality, flexibility, and scalable architecture, allowing the distribution of different audio feeds in different environments, each with specific volume and equalization needs. It is the perfect solution from small to large installations, combining uncompromised sound quality, full processing features, exceptional power, easy configuration, and high scalability. The target application range is extremely wide and varies from retail stores to bars and restaurants, meeting rooms, education or public facilities, and in general to any A/V application. The new BUSINESS MUSIC line includes both Amplifiers and Speakers, with the aim of offering complete sound solutions and maximization of the overall acoustic performance. Amplifiers feature an extremely compact size (1/2 rack unit width and 1 rack unit height) making them ideal for both desktop and rack installation (with the dedicated optional accessory). Their accurate design, together with environmental robustness (IP 30 protection grade and high-efficiency thermal dissipation), represents a crossover point between professional and consumer markets. There are two Digital Mixer Amplifiers models, the DMA 82 (2 x 80W) and DMA 162 (2 x 160W), combining a powerful DSP platform with recallable speaker presets. These are factory-created and available on the website so that the user only has to set parameters for the environment rather than the speakers. The configuration is either via the front panel with a dedicated user interface and OLED display or RDNet, using the optional board, while it will also be possible to control some of the features of the device from third-party systems via a serial protocol to integrate with other systems. Finally, DMA can distribute four audio channels to satellite DPA units, allowing easy installation and scalable architecture. With on-board signal processing, the DPA 162 can be used to increase the installed power and build multi- room architecture after receiving a processed audio signal from the four-channel bus on just a single CAT5 cable BUS (with local stereo input alternative). Routing to power outputs can easily be affected via the DIP switch, while configuration can also be carried out using RDNet. Each unit can receive two mono or a single stereo channel from the 4-channel audio bus, with a local stereo input as an alternative. It also has a line output for the subwoofer. Expanding the features further are the RC 401 Remote Control and the BM 404 Paging Console. They can be used in conjunction with the DMA units. RC 401 offers basic Volume Control and Source Select; BM 404 can manage up to four zones, with up to four paging consoles connected in a daisy-chain fashion, interlocked. Speakers offer an acoustic performance inspired by RCF’s top-of-the-line audio products and high-value industrial design features. MF 33EN is a ceiling speaker designed for recess installation in false ceilings or panels. For wall mount installation, WMF 33EN speaker is available. While being a high-quality device for background music, the self-extinguishing EN54-24 certified cabinet and the highly intelligible voice reproduction make it perfect for voice-alarm and evac messages. RCF has also produced two Monitor speaker models — the MR 40T and MR 50T, both 2-way bass reflex speakers. Unlike their predecessors, these are now sold in pairs (in either white or black), with special bracketry designed for wall mounting, either individually or in clusters of four. Also on display, with five passive speakers models ranging from 5” to 12” woofer size, the COMPACT M series is perfectly suited to every environment with its sleek and neutral design, providing excellent acoustic performance for both background and foreground music, alone or accompanied by the 10-inch SUB S 10 and the 12-inch SUB S 12 subwoofers, delivering output power normally achievable with larger cabinets.
