Legrand’s Joe Cornwall will co-lead the “AV Transport and Signal Distribution Masterclass,” presented by AVIXA in association with Legrand AV and Freman Solutions, June 21-23. Created with highly experienced AV professionals in mind, the three-day program will cover 12 hours of content spanning OTA and OTT delivery systems, AV payload, IoT, AVoIP codecs, AV structured wiring and local connectivity, HDCP, and color spaces with the opportunity for integrators to earn 12 RUs.

“From an in-depth exploration of streaming codecs and HDBaseT to a deep dive into HDMI 2.1 and the overachieving USB Type-C connector, we’re going to look at emerging AV technologies and the challenges they present to AV system designers, integrators, and users,” said Cornwall, CTS-D, CTS-I, ISF-C, and FOI, Technology Evangelist for Legrand AV. “It’s an ambitious goal, but the feedback from previous sessions I’ve taught tells me we’re on the right track. Every class has been bigger than the one before, and we’re going to keep our foot on the accelerator.”

So, You’re Ready To Go LED…But Is Your System?

As time goes on, the market continues to develop new, more flexible and efficient means to light the stage with LED technology. Originally, LED lighting fixtures were not capable of producing a high-quality light output. We now have access to high quality LED’s that can produce light almost as good as an incandescent fixture while also adding some very beneficial side effects, like color changing capabilities, lower power draw requirements and low heat radiation. They are used in all levels of production, from Broadway to High Schools.

Because LED’s have become almost commonplace in the entertainment industry, we often take for granted the changes that they can require to our facility’s infrastructure. Most venues that still utilize incandescent lighting systems continue to do so because of the cost to change their existing systems to allow the use of the new fixtures. An LED fixture differs from its incandescent predecessor because it is more of an electronic device than a light. With that difference comes special requirements for proper use. LED’s require both data, in the form of a DMX signal, and power be supplied to each device.

Good Help: Training and Trusting Media Production Volunteers

In Continuing Education, Image, Industry News, Web Articlesby Media

I’m a professional broadcast engineer and a minister. In addition to my weekday job at PTZOptics, I’m responsible for all media and audio/visual ministries at my church, Shiloh Ministries. We have a multicamera setup used for recording and live streaming, with all the productions effects you’d expect from a modern-day broadcast. We have the ability to track shots, introduce lower thirds, and even show social media comments. I’m also responsible for visual content used during the service, including video and slides. It’s far from a one-man operation, but I’ve been able to find plenty of good help by cultivating interest among congregants, creating a virtuous cycle of training and cross-training to ensure reasonable boundaries on my volunteers’ responsibilities. Over time, I’ve grown a team of volunteers I can trust to run a full-scale service broadcast without my help.

How to Choose The Right Wireless Microphone

In Audio, Audio Industry News, Continuing Education, home_page, Image, Industry News, Web Articlesby Media

Houses of Worship aim to create an immersive experience for their congregation. Services are about sharing the message and empowering others to lift their voices in praise and song. From the vocalists to small instrument groups and clergy, all need to be heard clearly and precisely throughout the sanctuary.

For many small-to-medium-sized Houses of Worship, they may not be able to employ a dedicated audio technology team lead to help set up microphones and ensure there is no disconnect between what you hear and what you see. This means that the tools you do purchase and learn need to be adaptable and easy to set up. When purchasing mics and wireless systems to power them, there are several things to consider when making the right investment for your sanctuary space.

Just Add Power, a leader in AV-over-IP distribution, today introduced a flexible new training option for its dealers: the Remote Installation Training Program. Like the company’s in-person training courses, the new program is designed to provide participants with an introduction to Just Add Power, HDMI over IP, and basic networking, while offering a hands-on experience setting up a system from beginning to end.

“Installers don’t have to complete our company training to set up a Just Add Power system, but our Installation Training sessions have proven very popular for those who want to understand the products well and know that they are using all of the tools and features provided,” said Eric Martin, training director at Just Add Power. “The Remote Installation Training Program was created to provide installers with the same knowledge and skills so that all of their Just Add Power projects will be a breeze.”
