NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – MAY 2011: The division of the Nashville Rescue Mission that serves men has been operating since 1954 and currently resides in the old Sears building, near the heart of Music City. Its 400-seat chapel is the spiritual gateway to the free services within, which include food, shelter, medical care and counseling. In order to secure a bed at the Mission, the homeless must simply attend a service. That commitment to spiritual enlightenment makes the Nashville Rescue Mission one of the busiest churches in the country, with a service offered 364 nights a year (only Super Bowl Sunday gets a rest!). Scott Oliver, a volunteer musician at the Mission and professional sound system designer and integrator at Nashville’s Pro Audio Solutions, recently turned the chapel’s tired, anemic old sound system into what many are proclaiming to be one of the best sounding rooms in Nashville with the help more

WAYNE, NJ – Montgomery Community Media (MCM), a nonprofit organization responsible for two PEG (Public, Education, and Government) channels serving Montgomery County, Md., has replaced its pool of DV-based EFP camcorders with five GY-HM700U and five GY-HM700UXT ProHD camcorders from JVC Professional Products Company.
