FROM TRADITIONAL TO MODERN. DANLEY LOUDSPEAKERS RAISE THE LEVEL OF PERFORMANCE FOR FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF MIDLAND, TEXAS

fb_midland_exterior.JPGMIDLAND, TEXAS – JUNE 2009: Founded way back in 1892, First Baptist Church (FBC) of Midland, Texas is one of the oldest and largest churches in the Lone Star State. From humble beginnings, the congregation moved to its present campus in 1954, which contains dozens of program rooms, classrooms, and meeting halls, all architecturally focused around an impressive 1,200-seat worship center. FBC’s worship style has diversified with the times, and over the last two decades its Sunday program has split into four separate services – one traditional, two thoroughly modern, and the other bridging the gap. However, FBC’s sound system failed to keep up and languished for a decade, delivering a floppy, inarticulate performance for even the traditional service. Recently, Taipale Media Systems, Inc. of Allen, Texas, stepped in to design a Danley-centered system of uncompromising fidelity and power, and Summit Integrated Systems, Lafayette, Colorado, completed its installations just days before FBC’s big Easter production. more

INFOCOMM, ORLANDO, FL, June 17, 2009 — One of oldest institutions of higher education in the U.S., with origins dating back to the 18th century, Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, provides its 2,100 students with a well-rounded liberal arts program, one that lives up to the legacies of both the school’s namesakes, Benjamin Franklin and revered former Supreme Court Chief Justice John Marshall. The school also prides itself on its athletic programs, and when it wanted to add a layer of advanced A/V technology for its squash courts, it turned to Xantech Commercial, a global leader in the field of audio/video remote control and distribution for 40 years, for advanced yet cost-effective solutions.

B&B Technician Dennis Heim completed the rackfilling, wiring and programming of the Xantech equipment. The project was completed in early April 2009. more
