GLENDALE, CA, SEPTEMBER 21, 2011â€”Whether itâ€™s during corporate events and outdoor festivals, or the Congressional Medal of Honor ceremony and the Presidentâ€™s Election Night, Neptune Productions, Inc., relies on a Pro64Â® digital snake from Aviom, the exclusive developer of the worldâ€™s most powerful audio transport protocol, A-NetÂ®. The Pro64 system helps to ensure superior audio quality, while providing efficiency for several production considerations, including set-up time.
â€œWe really appreciate the ease of not having to run a big analog snake and the cleaner, more aesthetically pleasing appearance the Aviom system provides,â€? says Raffi Ganoumian, owner and VP, Neptune Productions, Inc. â€œIf you consider the convenience and decrease in labor costs it offers, the system pays for itself in the long run. The savings are incredible and it is worth the investment.â€?
Neptune Productions, Inc. has been providing audio, video, lighting, staging and power distribution services for the past 25 years. A full production services company, Neptune Productions, Inc., has the ability to successfully service small meetings to large, full-scale concerts and corporate events and frequently relies on Aviom to ensure a system that is easily adaptable to the needs of the event and consistent in providing superior performance.
â€œBeing able to utilize 32 outputs and 16 inputs on one system and have a 48 output and 16 input second system gives us the flexibility we need,â€? says Zac Wigal, senior audio engineer, Neptune Productions, Inc. â€œThe use of Cat-5 wiring tremendously helps ensure the reliability of the signal while eliminating the 300-foot load of snake trunk line. Not to mention the great sound with the ability to sustain performance during extreme weather conditions has been wonderful.”
The company uses the Aviom equipment for many events, including the recent annual Navasartian Games, Red Hat Society, United States Medal of Honor 2011 Ceremony, U.S. Navy Seabee Ball 2011 and President Barack Obamaâ€™s visit to Southern California. Typical event setup includes two Yamaha consoles: an M7CL-48 and a second M7CL-48 or an LS9-32. Both consoles utilize Aviom 6416Y2 A-Net Interface Cards, with one being used for front of house and the other as the monitor console. Systems vary between 32 and 48 channels, with about 12 return channelsâ€”requiring three 6416m Mic Input Modules and at least one 6416o v.2 Output Module used for returns.
â€œRecently we had an event with multiple rooms including a main room, press room and video control/record room, with each room approximately 300 feet away from another,â€? says Wigal. â€œVideo required 16 channels and the press room required the same. Using an Aviom 6416o v.2 Output Module in all three rooms, with a 6416m and a 6416o v.2 in the main room, connecting all modules and rooms via Cat-5 was a blessing and exhibited the flexibility the Aviom system offers.â€?
