In an effort to provide the most effective and reliable presentation systems for its students and professors, the Columbia University School of Social Work in New York City has outfitted three of its classrooms with Hitachi 3LCD projectors. The classrooms feature CP-X809 projectors—one classroom contains two projectors placed side by side, while the other two classrooms each have one projector. Monolith Systems of New York City sold and installed the Hitachi projectors.

According to Josephine Tatel, AV Manager for the Columbia University School of Social Work, the School required the “lightest and brightest” projectors available.

“The classrooms are large and have high ceilings so the light weight and high brightness of the CP-X809 were a good fit,â€? Ms. Tatel said. “They met ease of installation and maintenance features we were seeking.â€?

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA, July 25, 2011 — After years of carting his collection of outboard gear from one studio to the next, Nashville-based freelance mixer Geoff Pillar opened his first recording studio earlier this year with assistance from Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro), the outside sales division of Guitar Center that focuses on the needs of professional users. Electric Thunder, which opened in January 2011, features a fully automated 16-channel Neve Genesys analog recording console, which Pillar purchased from GC Pro, the exclusive U.S. sales channel for the custom-crafted, innovative desk.

“Chad Evans is my rep, and he’s great. I can go to him for just about anything I need. Not only does he know the product, but I know he’s worked in studios before, so I trust a lot of his recommendations,� says Pillar. He reports that more
