AES/APRS Event-I Didn’t Get Where I am Today . . .

LONDON: Careers are magically unpredictable. Many successful audio world icons, count a chance meeting, or the whims of fortune for their success. Others had a clear direction, some swear by training and hard earned skills. On Monday, May 16, 14:00 – 15:45 the AES 130th Convention will present I Didn’t Get Where I am Today . . . a panel moderated by Peter Filleul of the APRS. The 90-minute seminar will address the roads to success traveled by prominent artist/producer/engineers.

Panelists will describe their career influences, and discuss whether flexibility, a broad outlook and the “maverick” spirit are essential elements to achieving longevity in the audio business. They will muse on the expectations generated by audio education, training and, the tacit suspicion that “Mindset” is more important than ‘Skillset” in most employment areas.

Panelists include:

Dennis Weinreich: Bass player turned consummate audio engineer, built a more

Global Equipment Network, Inc. Delivers A Royal Listening Experience With Listen Technologies Solution

TLC Royal Wedding Viewing Party

Guests of the TLC Royal Wedding Viewing Party use Listen Portable Receivers provided by Global Equipment Network, Inc. to listen to the event in Times Square.

Jarrod Esposito of Global Equipment Network, Inc. knew he had the perfect solution when producers of the “Say Yes To The Dress? show on the TLC network approached him about providing an audio solution for a viewing party of The Royal Wedding in Times Square.

Producers were at a loss as to how they were going to overcome the New York City noise ordinance of no public address systems before 9:00 am. Not a good situation with the wedding festivities happening at 5:00 am.

What Esposito knew is that he could provide an individual listening experience to guests of the TLC event without breaching the noise ordinance. The producers were a little skeptical, especially with the need to provide a solution to 2,000 guests. Esposito was confident. He knew that not only could he deliver the solution for 2,000 people but that they would have a more

New Life Church Amps Up Sound System With Face Audio

new-life-sanctuary.jpg

Decatur, GA––When Messenger Media Systems of Covington, Georgia was called in to do the audio for the New Life Church, the primary challenge was providing a powerful system for a spacious sanctuary on a limited budget.
As Senior Systems Engineer Christopher Bragg, puts it, “The client had purchased an old high school which they used for administrative offices and built a large sanctuary behind it.
“It was a 2,000-seat church and they only had $100,000 for the audio system because they’d spent a lot of money up front for conduits and other infrastructure they didn’t end up using.
“Acoustically, the room is difficult. Lots of straight walls, hard surfaces and we didn’t have the budget for acoustic treatment at that point. That was the main difficulty, working on a small budget for a room that size.?
Continuing, Bragg says, “They wanted an aggressive (ie. loud) system for Gospel more
