DUBROVNIK, CROATIA – JANUARY 2011: The history of Dubrovnik, a walled port city on the Adriatic Sea in modern-day Croatia, runs deep. Its origins are controversial, but it is thousands of years old and has weathered centuries of control from an array of nations and empires, as well as centuries of independent rule. It was one of the first nation states to outlaw slavery and has enjoyed political neutrality amid its often-turbulent surroundings. Although an earthquake destroyed much of Dubrovnik’s ancient architecture in the seventeenth century, some still stands and the remainder claims a longer history than any extant city in the New World. Visia Dubrovnik 5D Theatrum (VD5T) celebrates the city’s rich heritage with state-of-the-art experiential technology, including a 3D projection theater with vibrating seats and wind effect plus the ability to deliver up to nine different languages simultaneously. Tehnozavod-Marusic d.o.o. of Zagreb, Croatia designed and installed the A/V more

MUMBAI, INDIA – JANUARY 2011: When considering equipment for his new studio, iconic Indian playback singer Hariharan sought an analog console that would produce a different sound than that of the various small, all-digital studios throughout the region. After researching and testing out several mixing desks, he and his sound engineer/producer KJ Singh decided that In the Mix needed an API 1608.

“We’d used an API Legacy console at Phase One Studios in Toronto to mix Hariharan’s last album, Jab Kabhi Bolna, so we got to appreciate the full API experience then,” said Singh. According to Singh, when the duo finished demo’ing their console options they found that the 1608 delivered the sound needed to set their productions apart from the competition.

“It just had that sound,” said Singh. “Plus, the 1608 has a small footprint, but is very big more
