NAPERVILLE, Ill. – March 1, 2011 – The Compass Church—a 3,000-member, multi-site church located in the Chicago suburbs—selected the K-array KR200S loudspeakers to reinforce the live sound of its diverse and progressive worship services. The speakers are used in the church’s new multi-site location in the gymnasium of nearby Crone Middle School, referred to as the 111 Campus.

Main Light Introduces the LED-Powered LightStar Fiber Optic Illuminator

The Main Light LightStar LED-powered fiber optic illuminatorMain Light Industries, who manufacture and rent a wide variety of fiber optic-based products, introduces the LED-powered LightStar™ fiber optic illuminator, part of DiCon Lighting’s FiberLamp product line. LightStar uses an innovative LED light engine comprised of Red, Green, Blue, and White LEDs for a broad spectrum of color choices as well as reducing the power draw and weight. A key feature of the LED-powered LightStar is that it produces an output comparable to, or greater than, a fiber optic illuminator using a 150-watt metal halide light source. In a white color mix, the LightStar is equivalent to the 150-watt metal halide powered illuminators. By using an LED light engine there is no transmission loss with a color filter, so in deep, saturated colors, the LightStar has a greater output that is equivalent to 250-watt illuminators. more

Regardless of the on-going movement towards laptop recording, purists with the desire and the means to create full-scale, well-equipped studios continue to pursue their pro studio dreams. A pair of youthful Argentine brothers recently engaged the Walters-Storyk Design Group in Buenos Aires to create a high-end home studio for their Roma & Romma Records label.

Constructing the studio as an annex to the family home required particular attention to acoustic isolation. “Our clients wanted the freedom play and record any time of the day or night without disturbing their family,” explains WSDG-LA partner Sergio Molho. “They retained us for the design-through-construction, and complete turnkey systems integration of a professional studio with acoustically perfect live and control rooms.”
