Houston Northwest Church Makes the Transition From Analog to Digital with Installation of Soundcraft® Si3 Console

Houston Northwest Church is one of the city’s major spiritual centers, a Baptist church that can host more than 2,000 congregants. Music is an integral part of their services, which combine a contemporary and traditional feel with music that can range from hymns and gospel to rock and country. To help support this wide variety of musical styles, Houston Northwest Church (HNW) recently installed a Soundcraft Si3 Digital Live Sound Console.

“We needed a new console because our old one was past the ten year mark and showing its age,? said Clint Collins, HNW media director. “It was a 48-channel console and I had every channel taken up with a need for more room to expand. With the old analog configuration I had to have three full racks of outboard EQs, compressors, limiters and other gear, and our patch bay was over 25 bays long. We were long overdue more

OneCall Manage Offers Constant Analysis And Updates of Telecom Carrier Invoice Changes

Latest Verizon Invoicing Changes Integrated Into OneCall Manage Software Suite

Red Bank, N.J., February 24, 2011— OneCall Manage, international provider of a data-driven decision making for Wireless Management (WM), today announced that its WM software suite updates and analyzes carriers’ invoices, including recent changes on Verizon Wireless invoice format.

Indecipherable invoices riddled with cryptic charges are the hallmark of telecom carrier billing. For WM vendors, a key challenge has been providing technology and service solutions that can download and accurately analyze carrier invoices at any given moment. Without a software suite that proactively accommodates the constant invoice changes, a WM vendor cannot determine erroneous and unnecessary charges effectively.

“If the wireless management software vendor is unable to decipher the latest carrier invoice changes, the customer ends up paying for them without knowing what they are paying for,? said OneCall more
