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.
