SYMETRIX ARC-WEB TECHNOLOGY ALLOWS THE SOUND SYSTEM AT ST. JOAN OF ARC’S CATHOLIC CHURCH TO BE CONTROLLED FROM THE PULPIT ON AN ANDROID

BLYTHE, CALIFORNIA – AUGUST 2011: Just paces from the Arizona border in Blythe, California, St. Joan of Arc is not your average Catholic church. Father Henri Licznerski stays ahead of the technological curve, as evidenced by the church’s video system with three screens, several pan/tilt/zoom remote control cameras, and a digital video recording system. The recent addition of several hot condenser mics for the choir with accompanying monitors left the church exposed to a substantial feedback risk, and its multiple mixer locations invited busy fingers – however well-intentioned – to really mess things up. Licznerski called on San Bernardino’s Enko Systems, Inc. to provide a solution. In keeping with St. Joan of Arc’s embrace of technology, Enko’s Dave Chitty installed two Symetrix Jupiter 12 app-based processors and provided control from Licznerski’s Android smartphone via Symetrix’ ground-breaking ARC-WEB technology.

“They previously had no auto mixing at all,” said Chitty. “And more

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK – AUGUST 2011: Andrew Dowling is charged with an impressive task: make a FOH mix translate to every seat in any random venue.

Auralex Introduces Digital Room Analysis Form

New Digital Process Creates Quicker Assessment of Customer’s Acoustical Needs

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, AUGUST 30, 2011 — Auralex Acoustics, Inc., the industry leader in innovative sound control solutions, launches the newest innovation to its Free Personalized Room Analysis service, a Digital Personalized Room Analysis Form (Digital PRAF). As a digital upgrade to the company’s existing Free Personalized Room Analysis service, the new digital form will allow for a more efficient customer experience.

The new digital process enables room information to be fed directly into the Auralex database, so the company’s Application Specialists can immediately begin evaluating the room’s acoustical needs.
