SYMETRIX JUPITER DSP: INVADING LOWER ONTARIO ONE ESTABLISHMENT AT A TIME

langdon_hall.JPG

GUELPH, ONTARIO, CANADA – MAY 2011: The Weinstein Group is an A/V installation and event production company located in Fergus, Ontario, and its owner, Michael Weinstein commands a broad and deep knowledge of the many facets that go into a successful A/V installation or event. Over the decades that he has been building, tuning, and fixing A/V systems, Weinstein has observed that most systems go awry not through any fault of their own. Rather, it is the busy fingers of employees with just a little bit of A/V knowledge (a dangerous thing, you may recall) attempting to make “improvements” that are anything but. Recently, Weinstein has had great success “finger-proofing” his A/V designs at famed Langdon Hall Country House Hotel & Spa in Cambridge, the University of Guelph’s University Club, and the city’s Victoria Road Recreation Center using Symetrix’ new Jupiter-series of “zero learning curve” DSPs.

EVANSTON, ILLINOIS: Ryan Field is home to the Northwestern University Wildcats football team and, despite the team’s underdog reputation, the stadium is usually filled to a capacity crowd of over 47,000 fans. The team and the stadium are steeped in tradition – quite similar to the Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field. Founding member of the Midwest’s celebrated Big Ten Conference, the Wildcats football team was organized in 1876. The university completed Ryan Field in 1926, making it one of the oldest college football stadiums still in use. Though not quite so old, Ryan Field’s PA system is well into its third decade and exhibits a severely truncated low end and high end. School officials recently hired local pro audio design, rental and sales powerhouse TC Furlong Inc. to bring Ryan Field’s music reproduction into the 21st Century. Now, for every home game, TC Furlong temporarily installs just two Danley Jericho more
