CLOUD WORKFLOW [ Cont.from 20 ] creating those economies of scale that are difficult to achieve at individual companies." Both Nirvanix and Amazon allow a pay-as- you-go model, which in 2008 allowed a fledgling Extreme Reach to grow their business and then add more storage as they grew without a huge financial investment. Brackett says Extreme Reach is happy using both Nirvanix and Amazon S3 storage solutions, explain- ing they are very different from one another — a direct service model via Nirvanix versus a self-ser- vice model via Amazon. He likens Amazon to the discount warehouse RENT ALS [ Cont.from 42 ] ogy and production. "We have held workshops for Local 600, HBO, Comedy Central, NYU, and many others," explains Shipsides. "We also host workshops with the likes of Philip Bloom, THX and Doug Jensen." Information on upcoming classes can be found on their Website. But in order to train customers they need to keep up to date themselves. "We have to be familiar with it [ Cont.from 48 ] (+/-2dB). An input sensitivity model. "They are huge and you get great pricing, and a pretty good set of products for cloud, but you don't really have a high degree of service. You use them like you use the electric grid." Brackett says Nirvanix is more like your local hard- ware store, where you know the people there, and they do a great job for you day in and day out. You call them up and they will answer the phone. "You get a higher degree of service. You can work with their engineers to solve a problem. Amazon is a completely different order of magnitude of scale. But when you talk about storage and what we need as a company, Nirvanix has all the capacity we need." & RESELLERS in order to properly offer our clients the best solu- tions, whether in sales, rental or training," says Ship- sides. "We work with manufacturers directly to get new products and test them. Our staff evaluates the technology both in terms of performance and how well it integrates with other products that we sell. Many of our staff members have on-set experience, which helps in that process." MONITORS trim control adjusts for -30dB to +6dB. There are inputs for XLR, TRS, and unbalanced RCA. And, of course, the power switch. At less than $1,000 a pair, the Rokit RP10-3 offers something a lot of monitors at that price point don't: dominance. They look big, and the signature yellow woofer cones grab your attention. If you're looking to make an impact in your studio, take a look at the Rokit RP10-3. Even if they don't end up being your main mixing monitors, it's good to have "big" speakers to run a mix through when you need to "wow" a client. Though they've been around for over a decade, Event Electronics is now part of Freedman Electron- ics, which also creates Rode Microphones. After the acquisition, there were some major changes to Event Electronics, and the release of the Event Opal put a seri- ous new face to the Event name. The now Australia- based company retains the core belief of making low- cost, high-performance monitors. The 2030 is the first three-way monitor that Event offers. The tweeter and midwoofer are stacked on one side, and both are powered by one 120-watt amp (which is 80-watt continuous). The woofer is powered by its own 120-watt amp (80-watt RMS). There are two different models, "left" and "right." The low fre- quency amplifier features "soft-clipping" that prevents the amplifier's output waveform from becoming jag- ged or harsh no matter what the output level. The aluminum alloy tweeter uses ferrofluid to help control distortion and cool the tweeter voice coil. The tweeter and midwoofer are set into shal- low waveguides that help evenly disperse the signal for a flatter response.
