Event
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.”
Event
The 15th music festival Musikmeile Bedburg was again an event of superlatives. During one weekend, about 20 bands played on 9 stages, inspired more than 30.000 visitors, and all this for free. Technical service provider TSL Production took responsibility for the complete technical implementation of the event and supervised sound, lighting, stage and video. Across all stages, TSL used audio equipment from RCF. Christina Stürmer, Coby Grant and many other artists could rely on perfect sound conditions.

The technical support of Musikmeile Bedburg can be considered as a big event in its entirety and poses some challenges in terms of material and workforce. To equip all stages perfectly, TSL Production and its team of 25 professionals around company owner Frank Schmitz used a total of approx. 150 components from the RCF product family.

RCF rental partner Sonoloc equipped the popular Belle Ile On Air Festival in Brittany, France, with an HDL 30-A line array. Situated at Belle Ile en Mer, a paradise island off the Quiberon peninsula, on Brittany’s west coast, it was being staged for the fifth time since 2015, with ten bands playing across two stages. This is the only current music event on the island. It takes place on an open-air site, surrounded by the Vauban fortress, and offers an eclectic program in an exceptional and enchanting setting. 
 
In 2011 it boasted an audience of just 1,500 people but its year-on-year success resulted in almost 9,000 people attending this year. Promoted by Tomm Eo the line-up this year consisted of Emancipator, ASM - A State Of Mind, Deluxe, Super Temple Sound and Rone, representing different genres including Electro-Jazz, Reggae and House.  
 
PA coverage on the main Vauban stage was represented by two RCF hangs of eight HDL 30-A, with eight SUB 9006-AS handling the low frequencies. Meanwhile, the smaller Ramonette stage was equipped with two hangs of 12 HDL 28-A, with six SUB 9006-AS subwoofers. On both stages, infills were provided by four HDL 26-A, while a quantity of TT 25-CXA met floor monitoring requirements, with a pair of EVOX 12 as side-fills.

To enhance the cozy ambience, delicious food and beautiful views, good music and a professional sound system were also a prerequisite.
Installation
La chiesa battista di Tunbridge Wells nel Kent, Regno Unito, rinnova il sistema audio con un line array attivo ultra compatto a due vie RCF HDL 26-A bianco. L’integratore di sistema Adlib ha sostituito completamente il vecchio sistema comprendendo anche l'illuminazione e la proiezione video.

Afferma Tim Robinson di Adlib, "Il processo è iniziato nell'ottobre 2017 attraversando varie iterazioni lungo il percorso". Il sistema proposto ha superato le richieste e soddisfatto pienamente il budget disponibile. Dopo aver considerato varie opzioni, Robinson era convinto che "l'HDL 26-A ha fornito alla chiesa il miglior risultato disponibile". E continua: "La simulazione acustica in EASE Focus ha mostrato che potevamo ottenere un SPL uniforme e un bilanciamento tonale coerente per tutto il pubblico, massimizzando il guadagno prima del feedback sul palco. La disponibilità del sistema in colorazione bianca è stata la chiave di volta per l'abbinamento con la location".

Ciascuno dei due cluster comprende sette elementi HDL 26-A, integrati con una coppia di subwoofer HDL 35-AS da 15” appesi. Nonostante gli speaker siano attivi, non hanno inficiato sul peso massimo installabile. "Anche se attivo, l'HDL 26-A è ancora più leggero di alcuni concorrenti amplificati esternamente", conferma. "L'ingegnere strutturale aveva confermato che c'era del margine di carico, grazie al fatto che il PA si sarebbe installato direttamente ad una massiccia trave di cemento."

Uno dei criteri di progettazione era che anche tutti gli elementi per le basse frequenze fossero appesi. “La compatibilità tra HDL 35-AS e HDL 26-A ha reso questa decisione molto semplice. Per motivi pratici mantiene il pavimento sgombro e per ragioni acustiche massimizza l'efficienza e la coerenza degli array. Significa anche che non dobbiamo spettinare le prime file con i sub".

Inoltre, la fornitura di sei monitor wedge attivi a due vie RCF HD 10-A ha offerto ulteriore flessibilità. "Essendo speaker attivi, sono molto pratici per il cliente perché possono essere utilizzati in diverse configurazioni in altre parti della chiesa, ridistribuiti come tre PA stereo", afferma Robinson, ribadendo che preferisce sempre i monitor attivi in strutture multiuso come questa. Infine, una coppia di RCF MR 50 è stata installata nel foyer, pilotata dalla matrice inclusa nel mixer in modo che possa essere gestita in modo indipendente.

Ma, aggiunge, il sistema RCF non sarebbe cosí potente senza il controllo remoto RDNet. "La granularità di controllo offerta dall'amplificazione a bordo e dal DSP FIR in ogni box è meravigliosa e aiuta davvero a fornire la coerenza di tono che vogliamo per tutta la platea." RDNet Measure, il sistema di misura FFT a doppio canale a 4 ingressi incluso nell'ultima versione di RDNet, è un ulteriore vantaggio. Robinson continua: "Vedo molti tecnici, già utenti RCF o meno, che installano il software gratuito solo per quella funzione".

Per quanto riguarda la copertura, afferma: "L'area del pubblico è quasi esattamente quadrata, quindi la copertura orizzontale di 100° e la copertura verticale variabile [di HDL 26-A] la rendono ideale". Il nuovo PA gestirà comodamente sia la band che il parlato. In futuro c'é anche la possibilità di svolgere qualsiasi evento collaterale che la Chiesa desideri ospitare.

Riassumendo, l'installatore commenta: “Mi aspettavo che l’HDL 26-A suonasse cosí bene, ma l'HDL 35-AS ha superato di gran lunga le mie aspettative. Mi aspettavo un totale di quattro 15 pollici per fornire un bel sistema full range, che sarebbe più che sufficiente per una band, ma non pensavo a una potenza tale da far vibrare i pantaloni. Il fatto che l'HDL 35-AS sia così potente, nonostante il box sia fisicamente così piccolo per un 15 ", significa che c'è qualche stregoneria RCF da qualche parte!".

Infine, dice, il supporto ricevuto da RCF durante tutto il processo è stato esemplare. "Sono stati sempre molto disponibili e tutti i componenti sono arrivati in tempo dalla fabbrica, nonostante fossero nel mezzo di una pandemia".

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.

The RCF booth will also feature RDNet compatible VSA II Vertical Steerable Array models, with improved quality for highly reverberant spaces and a new additional black color and the new TT 4 series, with three new rider friendly speakers designed to deliver top quality sound for highly demanding events, both indoors or outdoors, small to medium sized areas and high quality installations. Its design provides the audio engineer with the best tonal balance and intelligibility while offering different design options, both in vertical and horizontal arrangement. TTL 4-A (line array), TTW 4-A (wide dispersion) and TTP 4-A (point source) are equipped with 2 x 10” LF woofers and high performance 4.0" compression driver on a rotatable/swappable waveguide. The TTL 4-A waveguide is 100° x 25°, the TTW 4-A offers 100° x 50° dispersion and the TTP 4- A is 60° x 25°. All models are powered by 2 x 800W RMS Class D amplifiers.
