Furman’s PL-PRO DMC Power Conditioner Protects and Optimizes Performance of Sound Reinforcement System in Indiana Convention Center

PETALUMA, Calif. — June 2, 2011 — It’s hard for a facility to compete with major destinations for conventions and exhibitions if its sound system earns a reputation for poor and unreliable performance. At the Indiana Convention Center, such a detail could put a serious damper on a $275 million expansion project designed to increase convention business. That’s why the design team at Bowen Technovation chose Furman’s 20A PL-PRO DMC power conditioners to protect and optimize the performance of sensitive audio equipment in the convention center’s extensive new sound reinforcement system. more

tickets_41.JPG

BARCELONA, SPAIN – MAY 2011: Two new hybrid restaurant-bars have stolen the limelight in Barcelona, Spain. Situated in the resurgent neighborhood of El Poble-sec, Tickets and 41° share the same prestigious proprietors, a roof & a wall, and a hi-fi sound system that parallels the ultra-modern, utterly-hip décor. Taken together, the sonic and visual vibe suggests the patron is savoring cuisine and quaffing libations of a promised and glorious future. Indeed, the New York Times listed Tickets as one of the “Ten Restaurants Worth a Plane Ride,” and would-be revelers at the ever-packed 41° will be turned away unless they secured a reservation in advance. Though separately zoned, the two establishments rely on a single, two-rack space Ashly pêma powered processor for all input conditioning, matrix mixing, loudspeaker conditioning, and amplification. It works tirelessly in the background, like a seasoned party planner, to make sure everybody at Tickets and 41° more

ATLANTA, GEORGIA – JUNE 2011: The 12,000 square-foot Ivystone and HomeStyle showroom is located on the busiest floor of AmericasMart in Atlanta, Georgia. Its patrons are the retailers of North America and the world, who flock to the merchandise mart to stock their stores with the hottest brands and latest products. For years, the sister companies limped along with an antiquated sound system that offered little in the way of user control. They recently hired local A/V firm Atlanta Sound & Lighting to replace the old system with something more befitting their industrial prestige. The new system centers on a Symetrix Jupiter 8 “zero learning curve” processor with Symetrix ARC-WEB remote. The fully-programmable ARC-WEB provides secure network control of input source and zone volume from any computer or smartphone, anywhere in the facility or anywhere in the world.
