RIVERVIEW, FLORIDA – FEBRUARY 2011: The River of Life Christian Center in Riverview, Florida stepped boldly into the future with a dramatic overhaul, both sonic and scenic, of its new sanctuary. The room’s old sound reinforcement barely merited that appellation, and it would be a stretch to say there were lighting and video systems – just some lights and some video. River of Life hired Christian Sound Installations (CSI) to design and install a new A/V system that would catapult the sanctuary from uninspired husk to enlivened, state-of-the-art spiritual focal point. To realize that transformation, Paul Garner, CSI principal and chief designer, relied on Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers and subwoofers, together with a suite of energy-efficient – but unassailably awesome – theatrical lighting fixtures and video display technologies.

JUPITER RIDES THE BUS

CINCINNATI, OHIO – FEBRUARY 2011: The nearly two million residents of Cincinnati, Ohio and its greater metropolitan area rely on the Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority (SORTA) for timely, comprehensive bus service. To meet its obligation, SORTA maintains a rigorous program of bus maintenance and inspection in its huge central facility. Until recently, communication throughout the facility hinged on an intermittent, semi-functional paging system that, after thirty years of daily use, operated poorly. SORTA hired American Sound & Electronics from across the Ohio River in Covington, Kentucky to gut the old system and replace it with something that would work well and reliably. Trey Arrowsmith, systems designer with American Sound & Electronics, specified a Symetrix Jupiter 12 to form the heart of the new system based on its generous input/output count, low cost, and ease of programming.
