Company announces the addition of unique FiDef process to their benchmark minimum phase EQ

(FiDef brings out) …the best of the mix and the emotion of the mix…extremely effectively.”

— audio engineer Frank Filipetti

SANTA CRUZ, CALIFORNIA, USA, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — MAAT Incorporated, a manufacturer of exceptional performance professional audio solutions, today announced the release of thEQblue version 3.0, a cross–platform plug–in for correction and aesthetic equalization of all content including music, motion picture and game audio. The new version includes a world’s first, the addition of the exclusive FiDef® digital audio process.

Available for select workstation platforms, thEQblue v3 builds on the proven foundation of MAAT’s celebrated original, while bringing a new layer of subtle refinement to the already reference quality minimum phase equalizer. FiDef is a proprietary psychoacoustic process, developed in cooperation with neuroscientists and DSP experts, that activates a receptive listener’s subconscious. It makes digital audio content more compelling and brings audiences closer to the emotion of the music.

Since its introduction, both thEQblue and FiDef have been embraced by the top echelon of audio professionals as well as the masterminds at MAAT. Friedemann Tischmeyer, one of MAAT’s co–founders, was an early proponent of the FideliQuest magic. “We all know it intuitively,” Tischmeyer stated, “but your brain really does hear more than you might think.” He quipped that “…clients love it…we have put my outboard gear on notice!” FiDef itself has found a home in the workflows of prominent practitioners, from producer extraordinaire Gary Katz, to legendary engineers Elliot Scheiner and Frank Filipetti. Filipetti emphasized the potential of FiDef when he stated that it brings out, “…the best of the mix and the emotion of the mix…extremely effectively.” Al Schmitt, engineer emeritus, sums it up neatly with the sentiment that, “It (FiDef) doesn’t do anything except sound better.”

MAAT’s thEQblue plug–in is delivered in all modern formats, including cross–platform AAX, VST 2 and VST 3 as well as AU for macOS. Perpetual licenses for thEQblue are available in two tiers; thEQblue6 offers six popular series equalizer Architectures, while thEQblue12 extends the license to include the entire set of all ten series plus two additional parallel Architectures. Images and additional information, including user manuals and videos, are accessible anytime at MAAT dot Digital on the web.

The 6th Annual Haiti International Film Festival Set for August 14-15 is Accepting Short and Feature Film Submissions

The 6th Annual Haiti International Film Festival, a two-day film festival set for August 14-15, 2021, celebrates Haitian art and culture. Founded in 2015, HIFF provides a platform for Haitian filmmakers. The 2021 theme is #HaitianCollaboration and #Haiti.

2020 HIFF Winners for Feature: “Desrances” Dir. Apolline Traore; Documentary: “In Search Of Voodoo: Road to Heaven” Dir. Djimon Hounsou; Innovative: “Out Of Chaos: An Artist’s Journey In Haiti” Dir. Pascal Giacomini; and Short: “Rasin” Dir. Pierre Lucson Bellegarde.

Haiti Tech Summit, founded by Forbes 30 Under 30 Entrepreneur Christine Souffrant Ntim, partnered with HIFF to launch the first Haitian Mentorship Filmmakers Program on Haitian Independence Day in 2021. Selected short films will be showcased on Haitian Flag Day in May.

The theme for the short films is "What does Haitian Flag Day mean to you?" Selected shorts will be showcased virtually on Haitian Flag Day on May 18, 2021.

It is a dream to bring the Haitian Creative Community together through the Haiti International Film Festival, which has been illuminating the aspirations of Haitian Filmmakers since 2015.”

— Jacquil Constant, Executive Director for Haiti International Film Festival

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The coronavirus changed the way the world engaged in film festivals including the 5th Annual Haiti International Film Festival that went virtual for the first time in August 2020. Today, Executive Director Jacquil Constant announced the 6th Annual Haiti International Film Festival, set for August 14-15, 2021, is accepting submissions in the short, documentary, and feature film categories through FilmFreeway at filmfreeway.com/HaitiInternationalFilmFestival.

"The COVID-19 pandemic was challenging and the film festival successfully pivoted to a two-day online event," said Constant. "If the COVID-19 curve flattens, we plan to return to our festival home at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre, 4800 Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. The core of our festival merges Hollywood with the Haitian culture and brings the stories that shape Haiti to a larger audience."

The theme for the short films is "What does Haitian Flag Day mean to you?" The selected short films will be showcased virtually on Haitian Flag Day on May 18, 2021 on the HIFF website. A major holiday in Haiti since 1803, Haitian Flag Day came to be when the revolutionary leader Jean-Jacques Dessalines ripped up the French tricolor flag. His goddaughter, Catherine Flon, used only the red and blue stripes from the French flag to stitch together Haiti's first independent flag.

"It is a dream to bring the Haitian Creative Community together through the Haiti International Film Festival, which has been illuminating the aspirations of Haitian Filmmakers since 2015," said Constant. "We are also developing a streaming platform for Haitian filmmakers to allow diverse audiences to experience Haitian films throughout the year."

Haiti Tech Summit, founded by Forbes 30 Under 30 Entrepreneur Christine Souffrant Ntim, partnered with HIFF to launch the first historic Haitian Filmmakers Mentorship Program on January 1, 2021 on Haitian Independence Day. Applicants can apply to the program at www.haititechsummit.com. The last day to submit an application is February 25, 2021. “The partnership combines two like-minded organizations that have a passion for changing the narrative and of Haiti through film and tech,” said Ntim.

The Haitian Filmmakers Mentorship Program is a month-long virtual experience throughout the Haitian Diaspora. Emerging filmmakers will have an opportunity to learn from Haitian established filmmakers to improve their careers. The mentees will produce a short film after the mentorship program concludes.

"The partnership with Ms. Ntim of Haiti Tech Summit on Haitian Independence Day was very significant for me," said Constant. "On January 1, 1804, Haiti made history by being the first Black Republic to gain its independence." Haiti celebrates every year on January 1, the same day as New Year's Day. Haiti Independence Day is an important holiday and the most important event in history as it marks Haiti's independence from the French colonial empire.

"We are proud to announce that the mentee's films will be showcased at the 6th Annual Haiti International Film Festival in Los Angeles and Haiti," said Constant. Since 2017, Haiti Tech Summit launched an inspiring 13-year initiative to change the future of the country via technology and innovation.

Wind Power Surpasses Coal in Texas

Wind Power Surpasses Coal in Texas

Wind Power Surpasses Coal in Texas”

— KAROL DONIMIRSKI

ZADAR, CROATIA, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Lone Star State seems to have been largely associated with fossil fuels for years. Although shale gas and oil have long dominated supreme in Texas, coal has also been a major part of the state’s energy mix for a long time, currently turning in at around 18%. Not for long, though. Via Texas, the winds of transition blast. Wind power surpassed coal in the total electricity balance of the state in 2020 for the very first time, “the newest sign of the growing popularity of the renewable energy in fossil fuel heartland of America,” as per the Financial Times.

The state has already been passionately gradually developing its wind power potential as the shale boom that placed Texas on the world energy map has been slowing off. Texas has become one of the pioneers in the national wind power revolution, “pulling in billions of dollars of the capital investment over the last decade as well as growing the generation of electricity steadily from fuel.” In the recent past, in West Texas’s oil fields, the refineries all along Gulf Coast, and then all the government halls whereby Texans work, from Austin to the Washington DC, clean energies and everything that could even be indirectly linked to a liberal agenda is anathema.

Around the same time as the United States shale-based economy crashed, the massive infusion of capital into wind power was a powerfully compelling chain of events to get more business executives on board with the transition to renewable energy. Capital has had a depoliticizing influence in Texas’ energy markets, as well as some extremely conservative people who are decidedly disinterested in the atmosphere or environmental concerns are getting really, extremely wealthy from solar and wind power as the petro-dogma disappears. As such, last year, wind energy accounted for a remarkable quarter of the electricity mix, not only surpassing coal but blowing breezily beyond it.

New Research Shows Private Jet Travel To Continue Strong Rebound; Retain New Customers Post-COVID-19

Security concerns may lead private aviation users to switch more flights away from the airlines; Over 95% of new flyers saying they will continue post-pandemic

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Key highlights of the Private Jet Card Comparisons' Subscriber Flash Survey:

– 96% of new private jet travelers plan to continue after the pandemic
– 30% of respondents say domestic terror threats and unrest may increase their percentage of private flights away from the airlines
– 68% expect to travel internationally despite new COVID-19 requirements that include private jet travelers
– Subscribers spent an average of $211,607 on jet card purchases over the past 18 months

Private aviation will continue to be a top performer in the travel and tourism segment in the near term and is well-positioned to keep its momentum in a post-COVID-19 world, according to new research.

A flash survey of subscribers to private aviation solutions buyer's guide Private Jet Card Comparisons found nearly 30% may switch some airline flights to private aircraft amidst concerns about domestic terror threats and unrest in the wake of the riots at the Capitol.

The research also found despite the upcoming COVID-19 testing requirements for anyone entering the U.S., more than two-thirds expect to travel internationally.

What’s more, 96% of respondents who started or restarted flying privately due to the coronavirus say they plan to continue after the pandemic ends.

Respondents to the survey, conducted via email from Jan. 15 to Jan. 19, were evenly split between subscribers who had been using private aviation before the pandemic and those who had started or restarted, seeking to minimize COVID-19 exposure. Previous research shows fewer than 20 touch points when using a private jet compared to over 700 with the airlines.

Over four in 10 respondents (41%) who are newbies said they would continue to fly privately "regularly" after the pandemic is over. A further 55% said they would use private aviation “once in a while after the pandemic is over.” Only 4% expect to stop private flights.

"The results show private aviation should expect a significant net gain in customers and flying post-pandemic," said Doug Gollan, Founder, and Editor-in-Chief of Private Jet Card Comparisons. "New private aviation users were very clear that once they started flying privately, they came to understand the broad benefits. Sadly, domestic unrest is now becoming a consideration as well."

FOR NEW PRIVATE FLYERS – POST-COVID-19 PRIVATE JET TRAVEL OUTLOOK:

– 41% plan to continue flying privately regularly after the pandemic is over
– 55% plan to fly privately once in a while after the pandemic is over
– 4% plan to stop flying privately once the pandemic is over

“I’m really not sure why I didn’t do this sooner,” said one new private traveler. Another added, “You can buy the cheapest car, or you can pay more for a nicer car, with a better ride, safer and more comfortable. Private jets are just a better way to travel if you can afford it, and if you can afford it, it makes a lot of sense in so many ways.”

A McKinsey analysis last year estimated there were only around 100,000 regular private aviation users in the U.S., although 1.5 million affluent households have the means. Private air charters are back to 90% of pre-COVID levels, largely driven by new users.

Of subscribers who were flying privately prior to the pandemic, 38% said they would likely increase the percentage of their flights using private aviation after the pandemic is over, with 55% saying usage will be similar to before COVID-19.

FOR EXISTING PRIVATE FLYERS – POST-COVID-19 PRIVATE JET TRAVEL OUTLOOK:

– 55% plan to continue flying privately regularly after the pandemic is over
– 38% plan to increase the percentage of their flights using private aviation after the pandemic is over
– 7% plan to decrease the percentage of their flights using private aviation after the pandemic is over

Several respondents were skeptical of cleaning and social distancing procedures by the airlines. Others added that decreased airline schedules mean much longer travel times and more problematic connections.

The riot at the Capitol, threats to elected officials in airports, and the possibility of more domestic terrorism and unrest is also spurring more respondents to private jets. Nearly a third (32%) of new private flyers said they might end up switching some flights away from the airlines to private aviation.

FOR NEW PRIVATE FLYERS – RESPONSE TO CAPITOL RIOT/DOMESTIC THREATS:

– 68% won’t change their mix of flights using private aviation and the airlines
– 16% may switch some flights to private aviation instead of using the airlines
– 16% say if there are continued incidents, unrest, or attacks, they may switch flights from the airlines to private aviation

“The stuff at the airport was quite concerning,” said one subscriber. Another said, “We fly to several state capitals, and there are less flights, to begin with, so this just makes it an easy decision to go private…It certainly makes sense to have a plane at the airport waiting to go if something did happen.”

Those who were flying privately prior to COVID-19 were less likely (26%) to be thinking about switching flights from airlines, with a number of respondents offering comments like, “No impact. I only fly private.”

FOR EXISTING PRIVATE FLYERS – RESPONSE TO CAPITOL RIOTS/DOMESTIC THREATS:

– 74% Won’t change their mix of flights using private aviation and the airlines
– 16% may switch some flights to private aviation instead of using the airlines
– 10% say If there are continued incidents, unrest, or attacks, they may switch flights from the airlines to private aviation

Overall, 30% of respondents say they may move more of their flying to private aviation due to concerns about domestic unrest.

Just over two-thirds of respondents (68%) say they expect to travel internationally despite the new U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 testing requirements, which include private jet arrivals.

FOR IMPACT OF CDC COVID-19 TESTING REQUIREMENTS FOR PRIVATE JET TRAVELERS:

– 31% say I would travel outside the US if I have confidence I can get tested locally before returning
– 28% say the new CDC requirements make it less likely I will travel outside the US
– 25% say I plan to travel outside the US, and it doesn’t have an impact
– 16% say I would travel outside the US if the hotel/resort provides testing on-property

About a third (31%) said they would travel internationally so long as they have confidence they can get tested locally before returning. A further 28% said the new CDC requirements would make it less likely they take international trips, while 25% said the new rule, which goes into effect on Jan. 26, doesn’t have an impact. Some 16% said they would travel internationally so long as the hotel or resorts provides on-property testing.

PRIVATE JET SOLUTIONS

In terms of private aviation solutions, 83% of Private Jet Card Comparisons subscribers use jet cards, 32% charter on a trip-by-trip basis, 12% catch rides on friends’ private jets, 6% have fractional shares, 4% own their own private jets, and 1% fly on private aircraft for companies they work for, but don’t own. Numbers add up to more than 100% due to subscribers who have multiple solutions.

Only 1% say they use semi-private services where they can split costs or buy single seats. Some 3% said they haven’t flown privately yet, but are looking at options, while under 1% said they haven’t flown privately in the past 24 months and don’t expect to fly privately in the next year.

Of subscribers who bought or renewed a jet card that included a deposit within the past 18 months, the average deposit was $211,607. Additionally, 6% purchased pay-as-you-go jet cards and memberships where they paid a joining fee but didn’t have to wire any funds to keep on the account.

For jet card users, 61% said it was the first time they bought a jet card from that provider, 40% renewed with an existing provider, and 26% said they didn’t need to buy additional hours. Numbers add up to more than 100% as some users bought jet cards from multiple providers. About 1 in 5 (19%) reported switching providers.

The survey garnered 145 responses with a 4% +/- margin of error. A donation of $10 per respondent is being made to Feeding America, enough to provide 14,500 meals to those in need.

ABOUT PRIVATE JET CARD COMPARISONS

The annual price of a 12-month subscription to the online private aviation buyer’s guide is $250 and comes with personal assistance via its JET CARD DECIDER service. Subscribers can compare providers and programs by 65 variables, including safety standards, company size and history, key policies, inclusions, and amenities, including lead time for bookings and cancelations, surcharges, and discounts. Exclusive QUICK COMPARE FLIGHT PRICING enables subscribers to compare the cost for specific flights between dozens of providers in seconds.

Unlike lead generation websites, Private Jet Card Comparisons does not sell subscriber contact data or accept referral fees from jet companies. The promise is to protect their privacy and offer subscribers continually updated data and unbiased guidance.

PROFESSIONAL TRIATHLETES ORGANISATION ANNOUNCES MARTIN TURNER AS EXECUTIVE PRODUCER FOR THE COLLINS CUP

Martin Turner Announced As Producer For The Collins Cup

PTO Logo

LONDON, ENGLAND, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Professional Triathletes Organisation (PTO) today announced that it has enlisted the talents of multi award winning director and producer Martin Turner to head the broadcast coverage for the PTO’s flagship event – The Collins Cup.

The Collins Cup will bring together the greatest professional triathletes in the world in a team competition to do battle to see who dominates the sport. Modelled after golf’s Ryder Cup, The Collins Cup is a competition among USA, Europe and the Internationals. Each team will consist of 12 professional triathletes, six men and six women. Eight athletes, four men and four women, will earn a place on their respective teams by way of the PTO World Rankings™ System and the remaining four athletes, two men and two women, will be selected by the non-athlete PTO Board Members with advice from Team Captains.

The format of USA vs Europe vs Internationals will add a whole new level of competition and pure excitement and by adopting a proven format like the Ryder Cup with its nationalistic intensity and having a points system that creates drama throughout the race, The Collins Cup will be a compelling live TV event that appeals not only to the fans of endurance sports, but also to the general sports enthusiast.

Martin Turner is no stranger to directing and producing award winning broadcasts. He won Sky Sports their first ever BAFTA for his coverage of England versus the All Blacks. In 2012 he created the world’s first dedicated Formula 1 Channel – Sky Sports F1 – and was awarded Formula 1 Broadcaster of the Year for two years in a row before becoming head of Sky Sports F1 coverage in Europe (UK, Ireland, Italy and Germany) in 2015.

Turner will build on the foundation already laid with the success of the PTO 2020 Championship at CHALLENGEDAYTONA® broadcast which was shown in over 126 countries, including prime time coverage on NBC-Peacock and NBC.

Sam Renouf, Chief Executive Officer of the PTO, stated: “We are thrilled to have Martin join the team as producer for The Collins Cup, bringing his world class experience and broadcast pedigree to the sport of Triathlon. Having delivered award winning broadcasts in globally recognised sports like Formula 1, he has a proven ability to drive innovative broadcast productions and compelling storytelling. This is key to creating a broadcast platform to leverage the excitement, rivalry and drama of The Collins Cup while showcasing the personalities, struggles, determination and achievements of our amazing PTO athletes to a wider audience”.

Martin Turner, commented: “The sport of Triathlon was born out of the desire to recognise who was the greatest endurance athlete on the planet. Today, the sport has unprecedented levels of engagement but its fans have been starved of quality television coverage. The PTO are changing that by creating world class sporting events like The Collins Cup and elevating the profile and status of these extraordinary men and women who push themselves to the edge of human endurance. It is very exciting to be a part of the PTO’s journey and my aim is to put innovation and world class storytelling at the core of our television product. It is about time that superstar athletes like Alistair Brownlee, Daniela Ryf, Jan Frodeno, and Lucy Charles-Barclay become household names and are recognised by all sport fans for their accomplishments. The time has come for the sport of Triathlon to take centre stage”.

About the Professional Triathletes Organisation

The PTO is a not-for-profit entity consisting of professional triathletes who have come together to promote and contribute to the triathlon community and celebrate the sport of Triathlon. A professional representative body is the natural evolution for sport and with its investment partner, Crankstart Investments, the PTO is now able to contribute its resources and the collective voice of professional triathletes to help our sport grow and thrive.

Seoul International Short Film Festival Logo

Seoul International Short Film Festival

Angelena Bonet's multi-award winning documentary "Change the World" is screening at Seoul International Short Film Festival from 17 – 23 January 2021.

It's an absolute honor to have my film screened in Seoul! Knowing my journey and music are resonating in this part of the world has truly touched my heart. My message is one of peace, love and unity.”

— Angelena Bonet

SYDNEY, NSW, AUSTRALIA, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Australian film producer and singer, Angelena Bonet, has her multi-award winning documentary film “Change The World” currently screening at the Seoul International Short Film Festival. Bonet’s biopic documentary film, which she has produced in its entirety, has won 135 film festival awards around the globe. The inspiring film is now being screening in Asia, most recently at the Tokyo International Short Film Festival in December where she was a Finalist. She has been the recipient of many awards including the 'Humanitarian Award' at The Jane Austen International Film Festival 2020.

Angelena Bonet is a warrior in the fight to end violence against women. With a fierce commitment to helping victims heal and take back their life, she brings to bear a multitude of talents, wisdom and personal experience. Only from the depths of her despair and darkest days has she truly found her voice and the courage to share her experiences and to speak out about issues generally swept under the carpet by society. Bonet has also produced a biopic documentary trilogy feature film series consisting of "Angelena: Change The World", "Angelena: Heart Of The Matter" and "Angelena: Light At The End Of The Tunnel" which are all available to rent or buy on Vimeo. A former Australian supermodel and actress, Angelena gave her career away after two life changing experiences, which she has chronicled in her documentary “Change The World”. Her soulmate and fiancé of three days, Erick Deeby, suddenly and unexpectedly passed away in August 2007. He had written and recorded instrumental pieces of music for her between 2005 and 2007. Bonet then wrote the lyrics and melody to his music after his devastating death and during her time of deepest grief. Then on May 26, 2012, she was a victim of a violent attack and was kidnapped and gang-raped but miraculously survived the attempted murder in Melbourne, Australia. Suffering Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as a consequence of the heinous crime, orchestrated by someone that she knew and trusted, she is now ready to share her story. The music she co-wrote with Deeby has become the soundtrack for her films and also won numerous 'Best Original Soundtrack' awards.

As a global ambassador for women and girls, Bonet believes that women’s voices need to be heard more than ever, especially as domestic violence has risen during the global Covid-19 pandemic. No longer can this sickness within our society be hidden and ignored. It’s a time of reckoning and humanity has the opportunity to heal and find a more harmonious was of being. She is honored to be instrumental in creating change and awareness by being transparent with her own experiences and encourage other women to stand up and speak out also. True power comes from within when we choose to take responsibility for our own healing and practice forgiveness and self love. She is an example that one can not only survive, but thrive.

Seoul International Short Film Festival is a place for unique and underrated films to be seen, films that experience with new methods of narrating their stories. Their festival has two sections, namely 'International' and 'Asian'. In the International section, they select films that explore the human condition and focus on the issues we are facing today. Independent films that deal with refugees and immigrants, the LGBT community, and women and their everyday struggles are our top priority. In the 'Asian' section, they focus on the problems in Asia such as the conflicts in the Middle East and how people in these countries live through war and chaos. A light is also shone on the cinema in the Far East. The selected films are judged by an outstanding group of juries who announce the winners after carefully watching and analyzing each film. At Seoul International Short Film Festival, they try their best to introduce and promote the film, and hope their reviews can help filmmakers with their careers. Official Selections are now screening from 17 – 23 of January and tickets are available on their website.

When the songs are experienced live it tends to be an amazing experience. We intend to recreate these emotions and excitement with the ‘Love Letters’ online concert.””

— Graham Russell

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 20, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Air Supply, the internationally successful rock duo from Australia is sharing their first live concert since the Pandemic began, in an online Internet performance on Sunday, February 14, 2021. The performance times are 8 PM in London, Los Angeles, New York and Sydney. The worldwide audience can select the city show-time that works best for their own time-zone. The concert will emanate from the Florida Theater in Jacksonville, FL, with all Covid-related precautions taken at the venue.

The streaming event dubbed “Love Letters” by Air Supply’s Russell Hitchcock and Graham Russell is to celebrate Valentine’s Day by sharing their many hit love songs with the global audience. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, during the performance Hitchcock and Russell will read select touching love letters supplied by long-time Air Supply fans (affectionately known as Air Heads).

Air Supply who celebrated their 45th Anniversary last year is known to perform over 100 concerts every year around the world and like many performers have been sidelined since March of 2020.

Russell Hitchcock explains, “We’ve been longing to get back on stage and once again harness that positive energy between our band and the audience. The ‘Love Letters’ event is a fab way to make up for lost time and reach as many music lovers as we can before getting back on the road in earnest later this year.”

Graham Russell adds, “Russell and I have always felt our songs such as ‘Making Love,’ ‘All Out of Love,’ ‘Lost In Love,’ ‘Two Less Lonely People.’ ‘Just As I Am,’ and so on, are meant to be shared with someone you love or those you want to love you. When the songs are experienced live it tends to be an amazing experience. We intend to recreate these emotions and excitement with the ‘Love Letters’ online concert.”
