                    [post_content] => RBDG was commissioned as design architect and acoustician for NFL Films' new world headquarters, a ground-up 200,000 sq. ft. complex in Mt. Laurel, NJ. Designed to meet growing production needs of NFL Films and the constantly changing worlds of audio, video, and film technology, the facility is a combination of two buildings linked together with a two-story office bridge element.

The technical building houses all of the spaces where audio and video are recorded, edited, combined, broadcast, and archived. The audio area features three mix rooms, each with a studio, a mix-to-picture room, three pre-mix rooms, three music edit rooms, two sound transfer rooms and two large MIDI composition rooms.

Studio A, the largest of the three studios, can accommodate an orchestral ensemble. Studios B and C are smaller recording studios, each with a dedicated control room. The audio area’s central machine room holds racks of technical equipment that is accessible from any of the edit or control rooms.

The video area includes eight online edit suites, six of which use video projection for master monitoring. All suites are equipped with 5.1 surround audio and are designed for eventual conversion to nonlinear editing. Six telecine rooms allow NFL Films an astonishing capacity for transferring film to tape.

The large video central machine room has the capacity for 200+ racks of equipment, and provides NFL Films the capacity to integrate the next generation of HDTV hardware without taking current systems offline. A 6,500 sq. ft.  fire-proof concrete videotape vault in the technical building allows NFL Films to safeguard its extensive video library.

A 60' x 80' Sound Stage includes a two-wall cyclorama, motorized lighting grid, 'drive-in' access, and dressing and make-up facilities. A smaller 30' x 30' insert stage, as well as stage-area audio and video control rooms, surround the larger sound stage. Support spaces for set construction and production storage are also nearby.

The administrative building includes a 150-seat screening theater for previewing work in progress. A film processing lab develops the many miles of film that NFL Films shoots each year. Eight decades of football film history will be preserved in a 3,200 square-foot fire-proof, climate-controlled film vault.

                    [post_content] => For this 90,000 square foot building, RBDG designed technical facilities which include two audio recording studio complexes, a MIDI lab, a television studio with associated video and audio control rooms, two video post production rooms, eight booths, a digital graphics lab, central machine room, electronic newsroom, and a 30-foot mobile teleproduction vehicle with maintenance areas, along with traditional classrooms, seminar rooms and staff offices.

One unique aspect of each audio suite is the teaching lab adjacent to the control room. The labs provide an acoustically accurate listening environment for the entire class. Images from remote pan and tilt cameras in the control room and studio are fed to three screens in the labs. The students can actually see more at one time than they would if they were in the control room. In the audio studios, the control room by itself is a production facility. The adjacent teaching labs accommodate 25 students on tiered seating. A complex communications systems links the control room lab and studio to allow interaction among the students, instructor and production personnel.

Besides the design requirements of creating appropriate room acoustics within each of the diverse production spaces, the concentration of acoustically sensitive spaces demanded special attention to the sound isolation construction surrounding the individual rooms. These facilities also have exacting criteria for extremely low noise environments, which necessitated extraordinary acoustical performance from the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing infrastructure that serves them.

                    [post_content] => Sweetwater is one of the largest music instrument and pro audio retailers in the world. Their new company headquarters in Fort Wayne, IN is a destination for customers, manufacturers, industry professionals and the community, as well as an exciting work environment for more than 300 staff. The $35M project, which earned LEED ® Platinum certification, is located on 44 acres and features a 180,000 sq. ft. indoor campus uniting sales, service, and administrative offices with Sweetwater's massive high-tech warehouse, performance theatre and recording studio complex.

Russ Berger Design Group designed the 14,000 sq.ft. technical centerpiece of the new facility -- Sweetwater Productions' three recording studios and the 250-seat Performance Theatre. In addition to providing a home for Sweetwater's full-service Sweetwater Productions division, the studios allow Sweetwater to showcase equipment for their customers, test and evaluate gear in-house, and to provide training spaces for the Sales Engineers. Studio A's live room includes two isolation booths and is large enough to support full bands and ensembles. The main control room, which features a Digidesign ICON D-Control console, is configured for 7.1 surround sound. Studios B and C each have a control room and booth for recording voice or solo instruments.

All of the recording spaces are networked for both video and audio, and are interconnected with the Performance Theatre, a 320-seat conference room and an outdoor amphitheater, allowing use of any of these spaces for training, performance, or as recording spaces for large-format sessions.

The Performance Theatre is in constant use in product training for Sweetwater sales engineers, with four full sound systems, audio connectivity at each seat, a complete theatrical surround-sound audio system, and a high-definition video display including a 24-foot wide rear projection screen plus two smaller flanking screens for image magnification. The hall also features an E-coustics(LARES) acoustical architecture system with more than eighty speakers distributed throughout the room, enabling Sweetwater to dynamically change the acoustics of the theater. The variable acoustics make the theater a perfect setting for music performances and recording sessions by local musicians and guest artists.

A central mall connects these facilities with the Sweetwater retail store and offers such amenities as the Down Beat Diner, an employee fitness center and racquetball court, game arcade including golf simulator, concierge service, professional services, and Sweetwater's Academy of Music, featuring state-of-the-art lesson suites and classrooms. The Sweetwater campus provides a totally integrated studio, retail, performance, and work environment for both customers and employees unlike anything in the music industry.

                    [post_content] => In 2009 the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH completed a major upgrade of the GameDay Stadium theater. The goals: streamline program content updates, improve the theater’s acoustics, and make the rooms accessible for special events. Working with NFL Films, RBDG provided architectural, acoustic and infrastructure design consultation and completed the upgrade in 4 short months, just in time for the Hall of Fame Enshrinement.

The theater’s two rooms display separate yet synchronized programs, with a turntable floor to move the audience. From opening doors to rotating the theater, a controller synchronizes and triggers every element of the show, including all aspects of lighting and video playback. RBDG brought in Altel Systems Group to provide systems integration.

Projection was converted from 35mm film to high-definition video. In the theater’s larger room, a 1080p 15,000 ANSI lumens projector displays programs on a custom 30’x16’ Cinecurve screen. The 6000 lumens projector in the smaller theater needed to be housed within the room, so RBDG commissioned a custom soffit sound enclosure to control noise from the required ventilation and the projector itself. All new Electro-Voice theater speaker systems and DSP processing create top quality audio for the theater’s two rooms. RBDG was able to place speakers behind the perforated screens for an ideal surround experience.

A combination of Crestron and Alcorn McBride systems allows operators access to controls for the NFL Films program. Monitors provide views of the two audiences and the screens, so the operators can ensure that the screen images are correct and visitors are safe as the theater rotates. RBDG and Altel devised a method to provide access to additional media sources to make the theater suitable for third-party rentals for special events.

            [post_content] => The George W. Bush Presidential Center houses the 43rd president’s library, museum, and policy institute. Within the 226,000 sq.ft. complex, RBDG provided design of the interior, acoustics, broadcast lighting, and broadcast infrastructure for the television interview/broadcast and recording studio, a 360-seat auditorium, and the Presidential Seminar Room. All of these venues are served from a media control room and a shared media equipment room. Opened in May 2013, the building and grounds earned LEED Platinum certification, the highest rating and a first for a presidential library.
