SEATTLE, WASHINGTON – SEPTEMBER 2011: Symetrix announces the release of the Zone Mix 761, which adds ARC-WEB compatibility to the powerful feature set formerly found in the predecessor Zone Mix 760, one of the company’s most popular products.

To ensure stunning audio performance and the flexibility to handle both simple and involved productions for a few dozen or up to seven-hundred audience members, a Symetrix Automix Matrix 780 processor serves as the brains for the new amphitheater’s audio system.

Passengers walking through the rotunda on the concourse between Delta Terminals 2 and 3 at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York have discovered a jewel of an installation for Delta Airlines featuring video display, playback and control by Scharff Weisberg.

Dubbed the Delta Diamond, the lozenge-shaped glass installation was created by Cigar Box Studios. The transparent structure is divided across the middle to offer two different experiences. One side shows a simulated BusinessElite class cabin with its comfortable custom seat alongside a cabin wall with windows; the other side houses a 3×3 videowall displaying a looped promotional video about Delta’s $1.2 billion expansion and upgrade of Terminal 4 at JFK.
