The Cannstatter Wasen is one of the largest folk festivals in Germany alongside the Munich Oktoberfest. The fair comprises large tents with visitors enjoying food and beer and music. For the tenth time already, German company SOUNDLINE Ton+Lichttechnik with owner Robert Reichle was responsible for the Göckelesmaier festival tent, both at Wasen and at the spring festival. In the Göckelesmaier tent at Cannstatter Wasen, which holds over 4,000 people, Robert Reichle relied on RCF audio equipment: the active Line Array System HDL 30- A was installed at the main stage, supported by numerous TT modules allocated throughout the entire tent.
 

Robert Reichle, Managing Director of SOUNDLINE Ton+Lichttechnik, explains why he chose RCF:

500 years after Leonardo da Vinci's death, the Museum of Science and Technology of Milan celebrates the engineer and humanist "Homo Universalis" with the largest permanent exhibition in the world. A spectacular setting guides the journey starting from the Florence of the fifteenth century. From the training of the young Leonardo to the contribution of the Tuscan engineer to his stay in Milan, invited by the Sforza family.

The New Galleries renew the historical setting with which the Museum opened to the public in 1953 and represent a unique cultural resource to inspire the new generations, the world of research, and enthusiasts of all ages.

Over 1300 square meters and 170 between historical models, works of art, ancient volumes, and installations revive the story through the evolution of Leonardo's thought in an emotional, physical, and intellectual experience.

For the occasion, the museum also renews the devices for the voice alarm and fire evacuation with an extension of the RCF DXT 3000 system previously installed. In addition to the MX 3500 units, new compact and powerful DP 1420EN loudspeakers, and BE3806 microphone bases with BM 3806 push-button extensions were installed.

MX 3500 is the master unit of the Voice Alarm system DXT 3000, dedicated to small and medium-sized applications where an EN 54-16 certified system is required. The system is equipped with powerful and exceptionally reliable Class D power amplifiers, that provide up to 500 W of total power. Depending on the model, each module is able to serve up to 6 independent zones. Moreover, a spare power amplifier facility is also available.

The internal power supply is EN 54-4 certified, and the back-up batteries can be included inside the cabinet, making the system a complete and extremely compact solution. The cabinet also features customizable finishing. The on-board DSP platform allows optimizing environmental equalization, maximizing voice intelligibility, background music, and performances. The system can be completed with emergency microphone consoles, allowing to add live announcements functionality.

Edison, New Jersey — When Celine Orlando, the city’s newest entertainment venue, was being built, they knew they could rely on local industry pro, Kevin Clouden, GC Pro’s Business Development Manager to procure a reputable sound system. Clouden has been a top seller of pro audio gear in South Florida for the past several years. Celine’s owners knew Clouden’s expertise would steer them in the right direction—sonically speaking.

Boasting a capacity of nearly 1,000 occupants, Celine Orlando is a multi-faceted entertainment space that hosts live music, corporate events, and private parties. It was created to fill the need for a centrally located, high-end entertainment complex.

Celine Orlando hosts five different spaces: a Speakeasy that takes guests back to the prohibition era, complete with antique furniture, elaborate drink menus, and an attention to detail that separates it from the rest of the venue; the Mezzanine is an elevated viewing area overlooking the main stage of the venue, offering guests the “next level” experience, with a full view of the stage, a private bar and VIP concierge service; the Rooftop Lounge is for hosting smaller events and overlooks the heart of downtown; the Sports Club at Celine is where guests can watch their favorite sporting events and features an additional area to relax and socialize; lastly, the Ballroom features an elevated state-of-the-art stage design, complete with a LED wall, lighting rigs and a top-of- the-line, RCF line array system and subwoofers.

Though the building that houses Celine used to be a nightclub, it was gutted as part of its transformation, and there were initially many options on the table for sound reinforcement. “They were looking to bring in very popular EDM [Electronic Dance Music] DJs,” recalls Clouden. “The who's who of artists that have performed at Celine recently is astounding. Because of the level of talent that they wanted to bring into that venue, everything needed to be high quality and user-friendly, from a tech/spec point of view,” says Clouden. Performers thus far have included DJs Will Clarke, Noizu, Cocodrills and more, and celebrities like basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal, frequent the club.

The San Gerardo Hospital of Monza, one of the most prestigious health facilities in northern Italy, has undergone an important strengthening intervention. An articulated expansion project with new buildings and renovation of the existing buildings, aimed to provide a radical modernization and technological update. The redevelopment includes a complex RCF project for EN54-compliant fire evacuation systems and vocal announcements.

The work, for a total amount of over 200 million euros, brings the total surface of the hospital structure to approximately 196,000 sqm; given the particular complexity and extent of the projects, the intervention was divided into four phases which will see the definitive end to construction by the end of 2022.

The new hospital complex is divided into several areas, with different buildings, but well connected. Each building is intended to accommodate various care activities without interference. The complete replacement of all the elements of the facades was also conceived in order to achieve a radical improvement in thermal and acoustic insulation performance, increase the comfort of hospitalization, and the containment of energy consumption.

The entire system for service communications and voice alarm is based on the RCF DXT Series matrixes with numerous components from the RCF Voice Alarm product catalog. The installation includes a 42-unit master control system for the "New Avancorpo" and two 28 unit slave control interfaces "Sector AEA" and "Sector AEC" connected together with multimode optical fiber in a ring topology. Two microphone consoles are available for fire brigades to send pre-recorded alarm messages and emergency announcements to all areas - or groups of them. A table console allows complete system management and supervision of all the plants with a simple LCD display. From the table console users can address messages, evacuation calls, and announcements in the individual areas throughout the entire complex. The slave control units are each equipped with an additional VVF console for local emergencies. 

Numerous recessed PL series speakers, DU steel speakers, and CS column arrays are installed, as well as HD horn systems for outdoor areas. All RCF components installed are EN54 certified.

En matière de grands événements, le Prato della Valle à Padoue propose un scénario unique en son genre : environ 80 000 personnes se sont rassemblées pour célébrer le Nouvel An 2020 sur cette immense place. Le festival, soutenu par la ville de Padoue et organisé par Radio Company ainsi que Future Vintage Festival, avait invité de nombreux artistes et DJ. En tête d'affiche, le rappeur Fabri Fibra est monté sur scène peu après minuit.

Le Prato della Valle, avec ses 88 000 mètres carrés, est l'une des plus grandes places en centre ville d’Italie. Les techniciens de Mazzon Service connaissent bien ce lieu et attendaient plus de 50 000 visiteurs. La sonorisation principale était composée de HDL 50-A, le line-array le plus puissant de la Série HDL RCF. Grâce à l'organisation impeccable et à l'énorme succès rencontré, la ville de Padoue prévoit de renouveler l’événement.

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.”

Quand l'International Convention Centre Wales (ICCW), qui a coûté 84 millions de livres sterling, a ouvert ses portes en septembre dernier, il n'était pas seulement le premier du genre au Pays de Galles, mais cette entreprise commune entre le gouvernement gallois et le complexe hôtelier Celtic Manor Resort représente une incroyable surface de 26 000 m² dédiée aux réunions, conférences et expositions (l’équivalent de quatre terrains de rugby).

Le site intègre une salle principale de 4 000 m², sans piliers et reconfigurable à volonté, ce qui a posé de nombreux défis au prestataire technique/intégrateur Stage Electrics. La solution a consisté à spécifier un workflow complet issu du vaste catalogue de RCF. Cela représente près de 800 enceintes (et plus de 1 000 produits RCF au total) pour une sonorisation multi-usage dans la salle principale et des systèmes mobiles pour les salles de réunion, le tout intégré dans un environnement d’annonce et d’alarme vocale entièrement conforme.

Comme l'a déclaré Russell Phillips, vice-président installations et développement de Celtic Manor, Stage Electrics s'est vu attribuer le contrat pour l'audiovisuel, l'éclairage (y compris l'espace public), les équipements techniques mobiles et le conseil en ingénierie scénique. Mais d'abord, Simon Cooper, qui a dirigé l'équipe d'ingénierie de Stage Electrics en tandem avec le responsable du développement commercial Saul Eagles, a dû lancer un rigoureux programme de réduction des coûts pour respecter le budget, sans pour autant faire de compromis.

Depuis plus de 15 ans, Stage Electrics connaît un énorme succès en installant des systèmes RCF dans des applications très variées, comme le souligne Dan Aldridge, leur directeur commercial et de projets.

RCF è lieta di annunciare una nuova partnership di distribuzione commerciale per l’Italia relativa ai prodotti DPA Microphones. 
 
DPA Microphones è l’azienda che ha trasformato i microfoni di misura più noti e precisi al mondo nei microfoni pro-audio più realistici e naturali disponibili sul mercato. 
Oggi DPA fa parte del gruppo audio italiano RCF Group. 

I microfoni DPA contano su oltre sei decenni di esperienza nella progettazione di microfoni innovativi. La lunga storia di precisione e ricerca della perfezione di DPA è tuttora immutata e rappresenta il più alto standard qualitativo in tutte le applicazioni audio in studio, broadcast, teatro, cinema e nel live professionale. Ogni microfono è assemblato a mano nella fabbrica all'avanguardia in Danimarca. Sono necessari fino a 200 passaggi per assemblare un microfono DPA. Durante il processo, ogni capsula viene calibrata fino a 15 volte prima dell'approvazione finale.
 
Lo sapevi?
  • D:dicate™ 4006A di DPA è uno dei microfoni pro-audio più accurati al mondo e deriva direttamente da uno dei più accurati microfoni di misura. 
  • Prendi una capsula microfonica DPA e ingrandiscila fino alle dimensioni di un campo da calcio. Ora avvia un motore a reazione, a 60 metri di distanza. Il diaframma si sposterebbe di solo 4 mm. Prova ora ad immaginare il movimento infinitesimale del diaframma alla dimensione reale di 4 x 5,5 mm.
  • I microfoni DPA vengono utilizzati per registrare tutti i tipi di suono, a qualsiasi livello in tutto il mondo, anche in Antartide, dove sono stati utilizzati per catturare il suono (molto silenzioso) dei fiocchi di neve.
  • Non solo sulla Terra. Sono stati usati due microfoni DPA - antenati del 4004/4007 - per registrare il decollo dell'Apollo 13, mentre un sistema microfonico basato sulle capsule DPA 4006 è incorporato nel Mars 2020 Rover che atterrerà su Marte nel 2021.

For the first time Integra FC, Germany’s largest series of amateur and pro-MMA events, made a stopover in the city of Trier at the Arena Trier. Athletes from 16 nations and martial arts schools from the surrounding area could prove themselves in front of the Trier audience. Event technology service provider TRIACS with managing director Udo Treimetten has been supporting the Integra Fighting Championships in all trades in all productions since 2015: Sound, light, video technology and live stream.
 
 
Wladimir Schwarz, Managing Director Integra Fighting Championship (www.ifc-mma.de) comments the joint work: “We have now been working together with Triacs GmbH from Föhren for more than 4 years to manage our martial arts events. The company TRIACS has the necessary know-how and the right feeling, which is important for our events. A sound system with high speech intelligibility and deep basses is vital for the moderation and the desired emotion when the fighters move in. The lighting and video concept is very well thought out and ideally implemented for us. Already during the planning phases and the delivered 3D visualisations, we were always impressed by our partner TRIACS. We are already looking forward to the next events which are currently being planned.”
