Installation
The Largest Forum installation in the UK Lincoln County Council, UK
In the largest installation to date of the RCF Forum 9000 system in the UK, specialists in local authority contracting, Sound Advice have completely renovated the media and communications systems of Lincolnshire County Council at their offices in Lincoln. Because of the County Councils location (Some councillors have to travel up three hours to attend meetings) they have turned to web streaming technologies. It is now possible for people to observe goings on in the Chamber over the internet. The solution was provided by Sound Advice under the leadership of Jon Hunnisett and in partnership with web casting specialists Public-i and RCF UK, who provided the conferencing equipment and software support. "Our initial one-line brief from the client was that the system had to do everything invisibly," explained Jon Hunnisett.
Lincolnshire had actually been a candidate for an AV systems upgrade for some time. According to IT manager and project co-ordinator Dave Walker of HBS, the Council's facilities management company, the previous system used in the Council Chamber was an analogue system installed in the 1980's. Demonstrations of various possibilities were carried out, and installation commenced in the spring of a completely new congress, sound reinforcement, presentation and camera system. The heart of the Council Chamber is now RCF's new Forum 9000 digital conference system. Jon Hunnisett explained what he sees as the main strengths of the system: "Firstly, it has excellent sound quality, which was very important to the client." That's something that the Councillors themselves have already commented on as being a real plus, according to Dave Walker. The second bonus is one of flexibility. Hunnisett again: "The system has so much functionality that can simply be unlocked with further software purchases. This means that the customer doesn't need to worry too much about what feature they should buy, and whether they can afford them at once. They can get on, buy the hardware and upgrade their solution later on without having to rebuild the system." RCF ultimately supplied a total of 117 delegate units for the Council Chamber, along with the FMU 9100 central control unit, one of its VM 9844 audio / video matrix switchers and three FDC9900 dome cameras. The three cameras are located discretely in the roof of the Council Chamber, and positioned to cover the whole room. The camera feeds are switched by the RCF FVM matrix unit and then pass into a Kramer matrix switcher, which delivers to the streaming hardware. Audio inputs are treated likewise.
Since the installation, the Council has asked for an alteration to the Forum software to better suit its needs. They want to be able to alter the 'waiting to speak' queue, and also would like a second screen for the chairman showing just a schematic overview of the Council chamber that would allow them to invite delegates to speak automatically. Jon Hunnisett: "RCF have been absolutely wonderful about this. They have done a software modification, which is now fully currently up and running in the installation. It's really intuitive, something that isn't always true of conference software." Dave Walker from HBS is very pleased with the installation, he concluded "The engineers from Sound Advice are amongst the most professional I've worked with, they did an excellent job."

At the third edition of Research To Business, the industrial research show that was held in Bologna on the 3rd and the 4th of May 2007, RCF was invited to display, inside the ASTER's stand, the innovative intelligent speaker system made in connection with the Regional Program for Industrial Research, Innovation and Technological Transfer.

RCF's intelligent speaker system project is one of the 20 chosen by ASTER (the consortium between Regione Emilia Romagna, Universities, Research Corporations and Companies) as examples of successful enterprise research. 
As a matter of fact in 2004 RCF presented a project regarding an innovative sound amplification system able to analyze the surrounding environment's characteristics altering, by auto-equalize itself, it's sound emission for an optimal output in every kind of circumstance.  RCF's R&D Team, cooperating with Padova's University and AEB Lab in Bologna, completed the project and made an intelligent active speaker
The innovative prototype is able to change it's equalization analyzing the environment's characteristics in order to adjust the listening in reverberating and noisy spaces. By cleaning the sound output from the environment factor, the speaker developed by RCF gives incredible quality benefits for both music and speaking listening.

The most intresting applications for this system are in pubblic address systems (train stations, airports, malls, ect.) where a system able to spread perfectly intelligible messages in every kind of situation represents an extremely important evolution in terms of security and correct information communication.

RCF applied the technology developed for this project also to a speaker, which is on the market today, for concerts and big events: the  TTL33-A

Event
Based in Rancagua, in central Chile, Juan Francisco Aguilera’s CYS Audio Profesional has been providing advanced RCF solutions, notably for prominent Latin American Christian singers, for the past 13 years. He has turned every time to RCF’s advanced TTL33-A active line array system as his preferred solution.
One such event in his native city was the recital by Christian musician Daniel Calveti in the Estadio El Teniente. Some 6,000 fans were treated to a concert played back through the TTL33-A system, designed by CYS Audio around two PA hangs of nine TTL33-A line array elements, with six floor-mounted ESW 1018 18in subs on each wing.
Another notable Christian music performance was by Costa Rican Danilo Montero, when 7,000 fans arrived in the city of Talca. Juan Aguilera this time provided coverage from seven TTL33-A enclosures each side with ART Series monitors providing front fills.
And in September there will be a further star of this genre appearing in Chile when Marcos Barrientos performs in Copiapó.
Along the way he has also provided coverage for the anniversary of the city in which he is based, when 15,000 people flooded onto the streets of Rancagua to hear Chilean artistes such as Andres de Leon and Grupo la Noche. He fielded 24 x TTL33-A enclosures — divided into two hands of nine elements for the main PA, with a further six modules forming the delay. He then turned to six ART Series speakers to provide front fills.
The TTL-33A’s flexibility makes it the perfect solution for events such as this — both indoors and out. Compact, with wide dispersion, this 3-way active line array offers incredibly high output and dynamics, extreme accuracy and high frequency extension.

RCF have recently provided the audio system for the Palazzina di Caccia (hunting lodge) of Stupinigi, one of the residences of the Royal House of Savoy, which was built by architect Filippo Juvarra in 1731. This out standing palace, located in the little town of Stupinigi near Turin, has been awarded World Heritage List by Unesco.
The project has been designed by the RCF Project Design Office, on the based on the original design made by Mr. Sergio Berno from the EL Engineering Service of Turin. The installation has been completed by Orion Gesta under the supervision of engineer Ivan Catellani.
The main audio system is the RX4000, a completely integrated system for voice evacuation, paging and background music and is EN 60849 CEI 100-55 compliant. The main control unit manages two more units, located in other parts of the building and are connected to the first through CAT 5e UTP cable. All three units are equipped with boards for the diagnostic of the amplifiers, and the speaker line (ground, short circuit, ect.) and microphone consoles.
The two slave units are also equipped with EOL boards to check the connection with the main central unit. Three different banks of recorded messages are controlled by the central unit.
The audio system has been divided into 11 zones, managed entirely by the main unit, CP4100, that process’s and sends all the standard paging an emergency calls that come directly from the fire alarm system.
The microphone consoles are a BM 4716 with an LCD display to control the system, that manages the announcements and the background music for all the 11 zones, and a fireman’s paging console, EN60849 compliant and that has the highest priority.
For the big oval shaped manor hall, which represents the core of the whole palace, DP1T/G sound projectors have been installed, that, thanks to their directivity and high audio quality, have proved the best choice for big reverberating spaces. Thanks to their compact size, high quality, controlled dispersion and very good frequency response in vocal reproduction, MQ80P have also been installed in the main hall.
To amplify the sound in the 4 corridors that start from the main hall, DU100X have been used. The compact sized DU100X are highly efficient speakers, with an outstanding versatility when used in this type installation procedure. To minimize the visual impact of the speakers in such an historic palace, the Orion Gesta installers have hidden them inside fireplaces or niches in order to preserve the integrity of the richly painted a fresco walls. Even MQ80P speakers have been camouflaged thanks to the niches in the balconies.
Thanks to this configuration the RCF system has allowed a uniform sound dispersion in the whole palace, with the advantage of just one main control unit that manage all the system simplifying the operations.
