The rental company called in to convert the gym into a full production space were Poitiers-based sound and lighting company, SLJ Sonorisation, Eclairage, Vidéo. They built a lighting structure which was rigged in the roof while the President’s staff constructed the stage itself.

Shinnyo-en

In the last several years Shinnyo-en Buddhists have conducted the Saisho Homa fire rite ceremony in Taiwan, Paris and Berlin. This year, the prayer ceremony for world peace was brought to the U.S. for the first time and documented by turnkey production and event resource Gorilla Production Group with AV technical support from Video Applications Inc. (VAI).

The rite, held at Shinnyo-en’s head temple in Redwood City, California, was led by Her Holiness Shinso Ito, one of the few women Buddhist priests, who traveled from Japan for the event. Covering the ceremony for an overflow crowd and for followers worldwide posed numerous challenges, including being as unobtrusive as possible during the rite, dealing with space constraints and servicing two locations at a second venue.

MASQUE SOUND RE-TEAMS WITH AKUSTIKS FOR BROADWAY’S NEW VICTORY THEATER UPGRADE

NEW YORK: At 111 years of age, The Victory Theater on West 42nd Street has staged every conceivable theatrical presentation, from straight plays to live burlesque, even a brief stint as a XXX movie house. In 1992, The Victory became one of seven historic theaters adopted by The New 42nd St. Inc. a not-for-profit organization created by NYC and NYS to revitalize the district. Renamed The New Victory in December1995 following a $11.4 million renovation, the theater now presents exclusively family-oriented shows and is mandated by its not-for-profit status to maintain tickets within the $9.00 to $38.00 price range.

By 2010, the sound system installed during the 1995 renovation was beginning to show its age. “We were basically OK with the EAW-based system, but it was mid-range, and inadequate for the more ambitious productions we’ve been mounting,” explains New Victory director of production, David Jensen. “Anthony Nittoli had more

ups_individual.jpg

Fairfield, NJ––Middle Atlantic Products is introducing a new line of UPS systems that provide true individual outlet control, both remotely via RS-232 and IP, and locally using Middle Atlantic Power Manager™, a web-based interface for local monitoring and control.

The Middle Atlantic Products UPS also features Pure Sine Wave technology, integration with AV control systems and a unique sliding rear rackrail mount that more
