November 2012 l 51 For the latest installation news UNITED KINGDOM Harman goes back to school By Erica Basnicki

THE FORUM is a £48 million (€59.8 million) facility in the heart of the University of Exeter’s Streatham Campus that features several technology- rich learning spaces, the centrepiece of which is the 404-seat Alumni Auditorium. Its AV system incorporates a

wide range of Harman Pro brands, supplied by UK and Ireland distributor Sound Technology and installed by GV Multi-media.

All audio within the auditorium is transported through CobraNet protocol devices – including BSS

GERMANY Sony’s DWX takes centre stage By Erica Basnicki

GERMANY’S DARMSTADT state theatre (Staatstheater Darmstadt) has installed a Sony DWX wireless system as part of a modernisation of its in-house facilities.

“After exhaustive research, we decided in favour of the best and most ‘future-proof’ technology that is currently available on the market,” said Alfred Benz, head of sound technology and sound engineering at the Darmstadt state theatre. “The system’s

versatile adaptability has also given us an additional benefit in respect of theatre operations.” According to German

distributor HL Audio, the DWM- 02D handheld transmitterswere one of the reasons the theatre opted for the DWX system, as

JBL’s ScreenArray loudspeaker system was implemented to satisfy the varied needs of the flexible space

Soundweb DSP – and streamed to appropriate areas via a pair of Ethernet switches installed in a separate remote amplifier rack.

The speaker setup features JBL ScreenArray cinema range cabinets powered by Crown CTs amplifiers, and an Assisted

Reverb System (ARS) as part of a 7.1 surround system. In the first Exploration Lab, audio is routed via a Crown CTs 600 amplifier to a pair of JBL CBT 100LA line array column speakers. A further four JBL CBT 100LAs are installed in the Exploration Labs’ Group Study room.

GV Multi-media’s Daniel

Victory commented: “The BSS Soundweb worked extremely well with the CTs amplifiers and JBL ScreenArray. We are extremely proud of what we have achieved at The Forum, creating at the heart of the university a hub of AV technology.”n

they can be fitted with capsules from other mic manufacturers. A total of 64 channels were installed, with HL Audio supplying 32 Sony DWR-R01D two-channel receivers, 20 DWM-02D handheld transmitters, 48 DWT-B01 pocket transmitters and eight DWT-P01 plug-on transmitters. The system was supplemented with additional kit from Thomann Professional Audio.n



SINGER-SONGWRITER DELILAH performed through the windows of Topshop on Oxford Street in London, thanks to FeONIC Technology’s Whispering Window devices. Multisensory marketing and

advertising consultancy 76MsMA designed the installation, using FeONIC Technology’s ‘invisible audio technology’ whereby small sound transducers are used to create very powerful micro- vibrations (less than the width of a human hair), causing resonant surfaces to emit high-quality immersive sound. Prask Sutton, chief consultant at

76MsMA, commented: “By audio- enabling the store’s windows, Delilah was able to perform right through them, so fans both inside and out were able to soak up the complete musical experience.” n

Keeping control of high performance systems is often a complicated undertaking. No matter how large or complex the sound system however, the new LM 44 from Lake will drive it with absolute precision, and minimum effort. LM 44 is a powerful, compact, full-featured digital audio system processor with peerless credentials.

The LM 44 provides four analog input and four analog outputs, in addition to 8-in/8-out AES3 and 4-in/8-out DanteTM
