Industry Veterans to Lead Archimedia to Offer Unprecedented Mastering and Archive Solutions

New Technology Company Creates Industry’s First Toolset to Enable Greater Visibility, Quality, and Accuracy in Mastering and Archive Environments

DEL REY, Fla. — June 4, 2013 — Archimedia Technology, a new company whose technology and applications bridge the gap between content producers and their archives without loss of quality, today announced the appointment of its executive staff. Mark Gray will serve as CEO and president, Chi-Long Tsang will serve as chief technology officer (CTO), and Josef Marc will be the company’s chief marketing officer. These Emmy(R) Award-winning industry veterans co-founded the company to ensure video engineers and archivists can access, play, manage, and test files in mastering formats including JPEG 2000, ultimately making content deliverable more quickly at higher quality.

“At NAB this year, we looked around and saw 4K cameras everywhere, but no way to deliver and read the files. There are no tools in the marketplace to satisfy both the people who create these high-end, pristine master files and the people who archive them, so we decided it was time someone solved that problem,” Gray said. “We’ve all spent many years developing video archiving, digitization, and test technologies for some of the world’s leading archive companies, broadcasters, and digital cinema studios. Now we’ve channeled that expertise into technology that allows both archivists and production teams to make use of their master files, which are, after all, the best copies available. Archimedia gives these users innovative tools that they’ve never had before but have long needed — tools that streamline an incredibly complex process.”

Archimedia caters to the needs of media archives and libraries; studios; broadcasters; production and postproduction facilities; and mastering, quality control, and digital cinema facilities, many of whom have volumes of pristine master files in their vaults. Master files are the ideal format for converting to other formats, but there are no universal players or management tools to support such large and cumbersome files, so most facilities simply store the masters and use other lossy formats when editing or converting files for delivery. Archimedia products will give users a way to work with, interchange, and deliver copies of master files directly from their originals while eliminating the need to store multiple formats.

As president and CEO, Gray will draw on his long and successful career in the broadcast, professional television, and rich media technology markets. He most recently served as executive vice president of Front Porch Digital after he engineered Front Porch Digital’s acquisition of SAMMA(R) Systems. Gray had served as president, CEO, and co-founder of SAMMA Systems, and oversaw development of the Emmy Award-winning SAMMA migration process. Throughout his career, he has held several senior executive positions at global companies including Sony Corporation of America, Pinnacle Systems, and Chyron Corporation.

Tsang has worked in the broadcast and television industry for more than 20 years. At the forefront of design technology for some of the industry’s leading products, Tsang won the U.K.’s Queen’s Award for Innovation and Technology in 2007 and the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ Emmy Award in 2012. Tsang previously served as CTO for SAMMA Systems and vice president of engineering for SAMMA products at Front Porch Digital. As the driving force behind SAMMA, he has become one of the leading proponents of the use of JPEG 2000 in the archive sector. Tsang’s experience also includes a 13-year stint as chief software engineer at Snell & Wilcox (now Snell), where he created world-renowned products such as the TPG20, the world’s first multiformat digital test-pattern generator.

Like Gray and Tsang, Marc also came from Front Porch Digital and SAMMA, where he managed customer engineers designing digital media archives, asset management, and mass digitization systems, as well as online and cloud video services. As vice president of solution architecture for Front Porch Digital, he designed digital video archive systems for the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda. Marc has held several other high-level positions throughout his career, and as a media consultant to Sony Corp., he co-wrote a book on interactive television and online media companies.

Archimedia will announce its first product in mid-June, giving users a long-needed common system for cost-effectively making use of their master files.

BHV Broadcast’s Award-Winning Video Ghost Targets Digital Signage Market

Power along a co-axial video cable revolutionizes remote monitor powering

Owslebury, UK – BHV Broadcast’s award-winning Video Ghost phantom power system is providing the Digital Signage industry with a low-cost and reliable power source that eliminates the need for local mains power for monitors. Julian Hiorns, BHV managing director and designer of Video Ghost, revealed details of the system’s cost-saving and operational benefits from headquarters in Owslebury, UK. BHV is an international manufacturer of compact, cost-effective equipment for live and post-production with a strong global channel network.

“Video Ghost is ideal for short-term or permanent applications that utilize monitors for digital signage such as entertainment venues, retail establishments and houses of worship,” explained Hiorns. “Operational benefits include portability and rapid deployment – important features for mobile productions and difficult locations where monitoring is required, and the flexibility to send or receive video signals and DC power wherever and whenever the need arises.”

Video Ghost is an innovative and unique way to get power to a monitor on a stage floor or in an arena roof and is a true ‘fit-and-forget’ product. The multi-award-winning unit is capable of running DC power and SDI video signals in the same coaxial cable. Once installed, it’s done; no adjustments need be made. No special cables or connectors are required, and the system can be run from any standard 15V power supply. Equally at home with SD or HD signals, Video Ghost powers monitors at a distance of 500 feet. Adding Video Ghost to the signal path eliminates tedious (and expensive) mains power provision at the monitor’s location.

Video Ghost, also available in a rack mount version that holds four transmitters, can also be used to power cameras and SDI converters.

Auralex® Announces New Leadership Team

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, MAY 29, 2013 – Auralex® Acoustics, Inc., the world’s leading brand of acoustical treatments and currently celebrating its 35th anniversary, has announced several recent additions to its leadership team. The announcement was made by Auralex Founder and President Eric Smith and underscores Auralex’s ongoing global expansion.

First, Mark Henderson has been appointed CEO. Prior to joining Auralex Acoustics, Henderson had a successful global career with Dow AgroSciences, and also functioned as Executive Director of the Indiana Soybean Alliance and Indiana Corn Marketing Council, traveling abroad to grow both organizations’ market share.

Henderson received both his MBA and Bachelor degrees from Kansas State University.

Next, Dave Brune has been appointed Director of Sales. Brune brings over two decades of sales management and business development experience with leading global manufacturers including Sony DADC, Maxell Professional Media, Thomson Consumer Electronics, and Ampex Recording Media Corporation.

He later joined World Media Group as mastering engineer, then Plant Manager and VP of Operations. Starting in 2001, he served as studio manager and marketing director for The Lodge Recording Studios. In the spring of 2011 he decided to return to college to earn an associate degree in IT/Networking, which he completed in late 2012.

Willisoundz Upgrades to the Latest PhantomFocus™ Technology

- Top-tier Nashville session player John Willis replaces legacy analog PhantomFocus™ System (PFS™) with new digital successor at his Carl Tatz Design studio, Willisoundz -

Nashville, TN: As part of a recent studio renovation that included Carl Tatz Acoustic Lens™ modules by Auralex, custom console furniture by Sound Construction & Supply and a 60″ Samsung video monitor, Willisoundz studio owner John Willis chose to upgrade to the latest PhantomFocus™ System technology, replacing his 2006 legacy analog PFS to drive his Dynaudio Air 20 monitors.

During a recent Rode microphone shoot-out project at the studio with GRAMMY®-nominated engineer/producer/educator John Merchant, who is also owner of the award-winning Carl Tatz Design studio Red Door as well as a Dual PFS user, Merchant suggested that Willis move up to the new 2013 PFS technology. Although pleased with his earlier-generation PFS monitoring, the new system’s performance came as quite a shock. Even though he anticipated being impressed, he was not prepared for its impact. “When I first sat down to experience the new system, I was sick,” laments Willis. “It made everything so crystal-clear, 3D, and full-frequency range-accurate, I wanted to go back and remix everything I’ve ever done. Kudos to Carl and the new PhantomFocus System for continuing to make my little slice of home studio a world-class facility.”

When virtuoso guitar session player John Willis is not creating studio “magic” around town for the likes of Taylor Swift, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw and a long list of other top Nashville artists, he is working on any number of mainstream and independent acts as a producer/musician/engineer in his personal studio, Willisoundz. His studio production modus operandi has evolved into a sort of high-tech one-man-band/mad scientist approach that he controls like a musical Dr. Frankenstein, creating monster sounds from his “cockpit” array of recording and musical instrument gear. He advises, “Don’t settle for second place. Carl is the master – invest in your studio’s future with the PhantomFocus System.”

The Recording Academy® Local Chapters and Producers & Engineers Wing® Host Andrew Scheps and Others at Recent Events

P&E Wing Events Lead the Charge for “Quality Sound Matters” with GRAMMY®-Winning Engineer Andrew Scheps’ “Lost In Translation” Series and Other Sound-Quality-Branded Events

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (June 3, 2013) — As part of the ongoing “Quality Sound Matters” initiative, which educates about and demonstrates the importance of high-quality audio, The Recording Academy® Nashville, Texas and Memphis Chapters, together with the Producers & Engineers Wing®, recently presented a series of three events that featured a presentation by GRAMMY®-winning engineer Andrew Scheps along with conversations with locally based luminaries.

In Nashville on April 25, Wimberley, Texas, on April 27, and New Orleans on May 1, the events known as “Lost In Translation” with Andrew Scheps provided an engaging, revelatory and humorous presentation of current audio format comparisons. Set in high-end listening environments, the demonstrations showcased the auditory differences of master recordings played back in different formats such as vinyl, CD, MP3, AAC and online streaming models. Scheps has engineered and mixed for some of the biggest acts in the business, including Adele, Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Linkin Park, Green Day and U2. He is a two-time GRAMMY winner for his work on the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Stadium Arcadium and Adele’s 21 albums and was named the 2012 International Engineer of the Year by the UK’s Music Producers Guild.

In Nashville and Texas, “Lost In Translation” was part of a larger presentation. In Nashville the overall event was titled “Quality Sound Matters” and focused on the importance of capturing authentic performances that sonically reflect the artist’s intent. Scheps’ “Lost in Translation” presentation was followed by a panel discussion including moderator Chuck Ainlay (GRAMMY-winning producer/engineer; Dire Straits, Emmylou Harris, Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert and many more) and panelists Ben Folds (singer/songwriter/composer/TV personality and owner of “Ben’s Studio,” formerly Nashville’s legendary RCA Studio A), Frank Liddell (producer/publisher; Lee Ann Womack, Miranda Lambert, Eli Young Band) and Bob Ludwig (GRAMMY-winning Mastering Engineer; Led Zeppelin, Daft Punk, Rolling Stones, Green Day and many more), as well as Scheps.

The Texas event, known as “Texas Retreat at the Rock,” was held at the picturesque Blue Rock Studios. Additional presentations were also part of these sessions, featuring mastering engineer Eric Boulanger of The Mastering Lab in Ojai, CA, and Boulanger and Scheps in a panel moderated by platinum producer/engineer Tim Palmer. Boulanger has mixed and/or mastered records across a variety of genres with credits including Colbie Caillat, The Bravery, Kate Bush, and Chris Botti. With the P&E Wing, Eric has taken a lead role in Apple’s “Mastered for iTunes” project, which aims to improve the quality of current and future downloaded music. Palmer is a GRAMMY nominee for his work on U2′s All That You Can’t Leave Behind, and he has produced artists such as David Bowie, Robert Plant, Switchfoot and Tears for Fears, written songs with Ozzy Osbourne and the Goo Goo Dolls, and mixed albums for artists including Pearl Jam and The Cure.

Maureen Droney, P&E Wing Senior Executive Vice President, stated, “‘Lost in Translation’ is an entertaining yet simple and practical exploration of the various formats delivering music to consumers today. Our ‘Quality Sound Matters’ initiative and related projects are helping provide the knowledge base for a new and developing era, so engineers, producers, artists and home listeners alike can have informed ears in regards to audio quality. We thank Andrew and all of our P&E Wing luminaries for helping us explore these concepts and educate minds and ears around the country with these recent events.”

NO6, Peepshow Post Merge

Bicoastal post house NO6 and London and NY based Peepshow Post Productions are joining forces, uniting two complementary talent rosters behind the deep resources of the combined studios. This new partnership, which will retain the NO6 name, will be positioned to handle all aspects of postproduction – providing editorial, finishing, color correction, and more in and between LA, New York, London and, soon, Chicago. Finishing and design services will be offered under the newly established SEVEN brand.


“We are the boutique with reach,’” explains NO6’s Jason Macdonald. “With the merger of our facilities and deep pools of talent, we have the resources of any large post house, but with a friendly, more personal vibe.”


Chan Hatcher adds, “Peepshow wanted to expand into LA and No6 wanted to expand into the UK. It was a natural fit.”


Aside from Macdonald and Hatcher, NO6’s Kevin Zimmerman, James Duffy, Justin Quagliata and Dan Aronin will join Peepshow’s Andrea MacArthur, Amanda Perry, Tony Kearns, Lizzy Graham, Christen Iversen, John Resner and DJ Joo. “There is such incredible talent across the three offices,” notes MacArthur. “We all share a real passion for the work, and this new venture will allow us to do so much more for any project in any market.”


NO6, which has traditionally taken on more comedy-focused projects, and Peepshow, with its eclectic background in visual storytelling and comedic spots, both expand their reach considerably with the new merger. The process has been streamlined by a long existing relationship between the two companies.


The merger also marks the launch of SEVEN, a new sister company representing the finishing and design services available in each location. NO6 and SEVEN will be represented by Shortlist Management on the West Coast, and Kelly Halpine and Gay Guthrey in the Midwest territories. East Coast representation will be announced in the coming months.
