ARIS (RCF distributor, Russia) has organized the TTL SHOW - RCF line array workshop.
On July, 28 2011, RCF TTL 55 workshop took place on the open air near Klyazma storage lake. ARIS, the organizer of the workshop, presented to the guests a truly unique opportunity to listen and evaluate a touring system in a real touring environment.
The system of 82 kW RMS power and SPL of 145 dB consisted of 6 TTL55-A on each side and 6 TTS56-A in a cardioid mode. The intelligibility and coverage of sound were good even at the maximum remote point of 140m away from the system. Even the difficulties of the landscape were helpless in front of the RCF quality and professionalism.
The guests of the TTL SHOW were representatives of rental companies, integrators, dealers and sound engineers from Moscow and Moscow region, St. Petersburg, Smolensk, Krasnodar, Maloyaroslavets, Kolomna, Serpukhov, Kaluga and Voskresensk. The foreign guests from RCF were Federico Lugli, Sales Manager Europe & Middle East, and Emanuele Morlini, R&D Department Engineer & TT+ Product Manager.
Mr. Morlini has prepared an interesting and useful presentation which was presented with humor.
The event took place in a friendly atmosphere. All participants were happy and satisfied.
RCF S.p.A has recruited the experienced Mick Butler to its UK sales operation, enabling him to team up with former colleagues Phil Price and Dean Davoile.
Based in the north of England, he will take on a twin role, with responsibility for promoting the company’s entire Touring & Theatre (TT+) portfolio on the one hand, while serving as Regional Sales Manager (covering Scotland and the North of England) on the other.
Butler formerly worked alongside Davoile at Fuzion plc, where he was Area Sales Manager, and with Price at KV2 (as UK Sales Director). Most recently he was Area Manager Commercial Audio at Shure Distribution (UK) Ltd.
Relishing the challenge, the new RCF man said, “In terms of its depth and breadth the RCF portfolio is fantastic; you can hit all market sectors with quality equipment — and that was the prime attraction for joining; I have great admiration for the brand — and when this opportunity came along it seemed too good to miss.”
With equal experience in the MI, commercial and pro sectors, Butler sees his primary role as “growing the TT series in the touring and theatre markets and building brand exposure over the entire country.”
Welcoming him to the company, RCF Director of Sales UK Dean Davoile said, “We are delighted to have recruited a professional of Mick’s calibre. As someone I have worked with and respected for many years his connections will be invaluable, as we continue to gain market share and take RCF UK forward.”

RCF at Tour de France 2011
The Tour de France is the annual bicycle race held in France and nearby countries. First staged in 1903, the race covers more than 3,600 kilometres (2,200 mi) and lasts three weeks. As the best known and most prestigious of cycling's three "Grand Tours", the Tour de France attracts riders and teams from around the world being the most prestigious among the Grand Tours.
The race is broken into daylong segments, called stages. Individual times to finish each stage are aggregated to determine the overall winner at the end of the race. The rider with the lowest aggregate time at the end of each day wears a yellow jersey. The course changes every year, but the race has always ended in Paris. Since 1975, the climax of the final stage has been along the Champs-Élysées.
At this years competition 78 TV stations were broadcasting to 170 countries with more than 2 billions TV viewers. More than 30 million people cycling fans are along the route to see their heroes riding the daily stages of Tour de France.
Each competition day at the Tour de France starts with the advertising caravan starting two hours before the stage and drives thru the daily route. This caravan has become famous and is today a big part of the whole Tour de France. The sponsors decorate the caravan cars, vans and busses in funny and crazy ways. Along the route they through out gifts, like the legendary green PMU hand, caps and all sorts of gadgets.
The caravan is also playing loud music and this year the RCF speakers were fitted on several vehicles. The company La Cite Du Son-Sonowest from Rennes was responsible for the audio installation and works with RCF products due to the outstanding performances, reliability and easy integration.
In the vehicles were installed 40 pcs RCF Art 310 (passive version) and C5212 Acoustica speakers.
So you can say that RCF had the yellow jersey all the way to Champs-Élysées.

Tecnologia audio al servizio dell’arte moderna: la diffusione acustica nel Museo del Novecento a Milano
“A cavallo” tra Arengario e Palazzo Reale, il Museo del Novecento è dotato di un impianto di diffusione audio particolarmente efficace e “garbato”
Davvero notevole la ristrutturazione (ma sarebbe meglio dire: il ripensamento dello spazio) al quale il Palazzo dell’Arengario, nel cuore di Milano a pochi metri dal Duomo, è stato sottoposto negli ultimi anni per ospitare il museo del Novecento: l’intera arte novecentesca ripercorsa in ventisei sale che si snodano, secondo un percorso in ordine cronologico, tra il Palazzo dell’Arengario e il contiguo Palazzo Reale, collegato mediante una passerella aerea di recente costruzione.
Sale grandi e piccole, varie e monografiche, che dal celeberrimo “Quarto Stato” conducono, attraverso una riflessiva e affascinante camminata, all’arte degli Anni ’80, per un totale di 400 opere. I lavori sono iniziati nel giugno 2007 e conclusi nel 2010, con il Museo inaugurato appunto nel dicembre dello scorso anno.
In una simile ristrutturazione, che sfrutta al massimo gli spazi a disposizione, non potevano mancare gli aspetti tecnologici. Ci concentriamo in particolare sulla diffusione sonora che, in un ambiente museale, per di più così vasto, è indispensabile: RCF ha avuto un ruolo da protagonista, occupandosi di fornitura e scelta delle apparecchiature, progettazione e installazione.
L’esigenza era, vista la natura dell’ambiente (esposizione di opere d’arte, alcune molto complesse, vere e proprie installazioni dinamiche), costruire un sistema di diffusione audio il più possibile capillare (deve coprire tutte e ventisei le sale espositive) e allo stesso tempo poco invasivo sotto l’aspetto visivo. L’obiettivo è stato ampiamente raggiunto: il sistema ha il suo centro nevralgico al banco dell’accettazione, nella hall del Museo al pianterreno, e si dipana di sala in sala mediante diffusori acustici da incasso a controsoffitto o a parete, praticamente invisibili e di certo in grado di non guastare la visione delle opere. Ci conferma Aristodemo Preda di RCF, responsabile del progetto acustico, che “per ogni sala è stata fatta una valutazione ambientale per individuare la collocazione migliore dei diffusori acustici”, indi si è proceduto alla messa in opera.
L’impianto consente la “classica” diffusione di annunci (comunicazioni interne di servizio, avvisi rivolti al pubblico per presentazioni o conferenze che si tengono in una particolare sala del Museo) come anche la trasmissione di messaggi di emergenza, in ossequio alla normativa europea EN 60849, dedicata appunto agli impianti elettroacustici applicati ai sistemi di emergenza. “Per rendere più funzionale il sistema” – continua Aristodemo Preda – “ogni sala espositiva è stata considerata come zona a sé stante, sia nell’ottica di funzionamento standard, sia in condizione di emergenza.” Ogni area, infatti, è servita da una doppia linea di altoparlanti, ciascuna collegata a un proprio amplificatore per garantire in caso di guasto l’invio del messaggio di emergenza.
Per la gestione è stato utilizzato il DXT 5000, un sistema digitale a tecnologia distribuita, che consente a ogni componente di avere un proprio indirizzo fisico: questo permette la totale configurazione e installazione in accordo alle normative europee. Il monitoraggio dei dispositivi connessi, degli ingressi e delle uscite analogiche, è consentito dall’unità centrale del sistema (MU 1500).
Equipaggiando gli altoparlanti con la scheda SC 5926, il sistema può funzionare in modalità “diffusori attivi”, oppure operare in “modalità 100V” utilizzando l’apposita interfaccia MT 5708. Si tratta dunque di un sistema totalmente configurabile tramite il pannello frontale equipaggiato con 6 tasti e un display LCD o, più agevolmente, attraverso la sua interfaccia grafica che può essere installata su ogni PC (richiede Windows 2000 oppure XP).
Il sistema è esplicitamente pensato per soddisfare tutte le esigenze dei sistemi PA di ogni dimensione grazie ai moduli e alle periferiche implementabili.
Nel caso del Museo del Novecento, sono stati scelti, per le sale maggiori, diffusori acustici della serie Monitor Q, che uniscono un’elevata qualità di riproduzione a un innovativo design, in particolare i modelli MQ 60H e MQ 50C, mentre per tutte le altre zone sono stati impiegati diffusori acustici a due vie per garantire in ogni caso una perfetta riproduzione del messaggio inviato.
Insomma, un elemento fondamentale ma non protagonista, per così dire, il cui primo compito è nascondersi restando utile e fruibile, per accompagnare nel migliore dei modi un percorso appassionante che va da Pellizza da Volpedo al Futurismo, da Boccioni e de Chirico a Fontana, dall’Astrattismo all’Arte povera, in una location che per posizione (Piazza Duomo) e per pregio architettonico non potrebbe essere migliore.
