ST PAUL’S METHODIST CHURCH INSTALLS SYMETRIX JUPITER DSP BEFORE AND AFTER SANCTUARY FIRE

OXNARD, CALIFORNIA – NOVEMBER 2011: After years of planning a complete renovation of its sanctuary, including an upgrade to cutting-edge A/V technologies, St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in Oxnard, California suffered a devastating setback one week before its completion. A fire ruined everything inside the sanctuary. Fortunately, no one was hurt, but so close to such a long-awaited rebirth, the fire was a demoralizing setback of several months. Sound Casework designed and installed St. Paul’s new A/V system, which was quick to install – and reinstall – thanks to the Symetrix Jupiter 8 “zero learning curve” audio processor at its heart.

Paul Svenson and business partner Dan Muller run Sound Casework, which melds an audio-visual expertise with those aspects of general contracting – specifically carpentry – that may impact sound. Svenson suggests his involvement in A/V design and installation is a convenient means to support his out-of-control “music habit.” Svenson is a church musician – a guitarist, bandleader, and composer – of forty years. He feels that some mainline churches may be facing some difficult situations. “When congregants have a tough time seeing or hearing what’s going on because a church’s A/V system pales in comparison to what those modern smart phones congregants carry around in their pockets… that church has a problem,” he states flatly.

However, Svenson sees good things happening for those churches with the fortitude and foresight to reinvent themselves, and he counts St. Paul United Methodist Church among them. After years of careful planning and saving, the church moved forward with a plan (by a church member who is also an architect) to renovate the front stage chancel area. At the same time, they would install a new sound system and six flat-panel screens for displaying contents of the hymnal. Because the sanctuary is used for more than just worship service, Svenson used the Symetrix Jupiter 8 and a Symetrix ARC-2i wall panel remote to deliver an intuitive, auto-mixed sound system that would not require a sound tech for modest events. At the same time, the system includes a traditional console for worship services or other events that require nuanced control at the hands of a professional.

Svenson has been happily using Symetrix’ Integrator series of processors – and now the Jupiter series of processors – since he first hooked one up to his laptop. “I was used to wrestling with gear from other manufacturers that sometimes took an hour to get into reliable communication with my laptop,” he said. “With Symetrix, a ‘Wizard’ pops open and twenty seconds later, literally, everything is connected and communicating! Both the Integrator series and the Jupiter series are powerful, cost-effective, and simple to program and install.”

A Bose MA12 line array with an MB4 subwoofer delivers content to the modestly-sized room, and QSC CX-series amplifiers provide the power. By using the Jupiter 8 and Sound Reinforcement 10 app from among the over sixty available, Svenson is able to deliver all of the input conditioning, matrix mixing, user control, and loudspeaker conditioning with just one single-rack unit. Indeed, by programming the MA12′s EQ curves into the Jupiter, he can forego the Bose processor for a cost and space savings. Four Sennheiser G3-series wireless mics and as many Telefunken M80 wired mics provide clear, reliable inputs. A Symetrix ARC-2i wall panel allows users to select an automatic system configuration for “meeting,” “wedding,” “memorial,” or “worship.” In worship mode, the system takes input from a Yamaha LS-9 console. Otherwise, the inputs are auto-mixed directly inside the Jupiter.

“They were one week away from the grand re-opening,” recalled Svenson. “Everything looked beautiful. It was only a matter of applying the finishing touches. The head of the church board came in at 6:30 in the morning the day after we had finished the A/V system to find the sanctuary on fire! If the fire department had been just ten minutes later, the building would have been lost.”

Though much of it was still apparently working, Sound Casework replaced all of the A/V equipment on the assumption that it was likely smoke damaged and thus unreliable. As with the original installation, the Symetrix Jupiter 8 made the re-installation a speedy process, and St. Paul United Methodist Church re-opened in full grandeur, delayed only a few months.

Full Spectrum: projectiondesign® releases FS32 IR NVG projector at I/ITSEC 2011

See projectiondesign at I/ITSEC 2011, Booth #2563, OCCC, Orlando, FL, 28 November – 1 December 2011

New FS32 IR infra-red enabled LED-illuminated projector acts to stimulate Night Vision Goggles (NVG) for unrivalled night-time vision and brighter day-time vision

Another striking innovation set to attract the attention of visitors to this month’s Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference is the new FS32 IR ReaLED™ projector from projectiondesign®. The FS32 IR is set to be the most powerful projector available in its class and is designed for stimulation of Night Vision Goggles in night-time training and simulation scenarios as well as critical, bright and full daylight operations.

ReaLED™ technology: enabling night vision

The high resolution FS32 IR uses projectiondesign’s 2nd Generation solid-state ReaLED™ illumination system that works to improve and assist the creation of deeper black levels and brighter visual light output over any other competing LED projector.

Typically, LED projectors have red, green, and blue LED light sources. The FS32 IR adds a fourth LED that emits infrared light beyond the range visible to the human eye, thus enabling the projector produces brighter night vision imagery when stimulated by Night Vision Goggles.

LED illumination removes the need to use more traditional lamps and colour wheels, ensuring no recalibration and delivering a completely stable image, with an unmatched typical service life of 100,000 hours. Maintenance costs are drastically reduced ensuring the FS32 IR is the most cost efficient IR projector available.

The FS32 IR is available in HD (1,920 x 1,080) or WUXGA (1,920 or 1,200) resolutions.

Full Spectrum

The FS32 IR offers user configurable IR wavelengths to optimize alignment according to customer-specific requirements.

The flexibility of the FS32 IR projector is matched with its use in real-world simulation training scenarios. Often those that operate NVGs adapt their vision to unaided eye vision, alternating as needed to night vision. The FS32 IR has been specifically engineered to accommodate the Full Spectrum technique of light illumination for simulation and training applications, displaying RGB and IR simultaneously

When combined with today’s leading Image Generators in integrated systems, the FS32 IR ensures that training scenarios requiring day and night vision produce simultaneous viewing for day-time and with infra-red light for limited visibility. What’s more, infra-red power adjustments of the projectors can be made ensuring system flexibility and connectivity, which, unlike competing projectors, allows 0 – 100% output control.

The FS32 IR Smear Reduction Processing feature ensures the ability to reduce motion artifacts in high-speed imaging, while dramatically increasing the effectiveness of NVG stimulation, even in the darkest of simulated night scenes.

Mike Raines, Visual Simulation Manager at projectiondesign says: “The FS32 IR projector is the result of an intense period of receiving key customer feedback and our focused engineering effort to develop a product which sharply addresses the critical need of NVG training applications. Our efforts have gained considerable momentum and interest as the technology was previewed throughout the year.

“We’re delighted to now be able to announce its availability for effective, true-to-life simulation of low-ambient light operations. The projector is brighter than any competing product in day mode and the LED technology actually works to improve the night vision system capability. As such it is designed for full mission training, air-traffic control, ship-bridge simulation, and any application where the trainee is wearing Night Vision Goggles (NVGs).”

projectiondesign will exhibit their unrivaled product portfolio at I/ITSEC 2011 on Booth #2563 at the OCCC, Orlando, FL between 28 November – 1 December 2011.

projectiondesign® launches 2nd Generation LED projector, the FL35 wqxga

See projectiondesign at I/ITSEC 2011, Booth #2563, OCCC, Orlando, FL, 28 November – 1 December 2011

At I/ITSEC, the FL35 wqxga projector will be integrated in a six-channel ImmersiveDome™ system supplied by Immersive Display Solutions, and driven by the FlightSafety VITAL X IG.

Mike Raines, Visual Simulation Manager at projectiondesign explains: “The next generation of our LED projectors are based on the mantra of providing our customers with the best quality and innovation. Users will benefit from an image consistent over time. The higher resolution FL35 wqxga projector reduces the number of channels needed to configure simulation systems with clarity beyond eye-limiting resolution. In addition, the ReaLED engine has no restrictions on operation orientation which provides a dramatic increase in installation flexibility.”

The powerful feature set of the FL35 wqxga projector is designed for total predictability and low total cost of ownership. As with all projectiondesign professional projectors, the FL35 wqxga has a standard 3-year warranty and options for 5 year 24/7 warranty.

Unlike 4K resolution projectors, the FL35 wqxga uses industry-standard single cable IG inputs and has expandable inputs and outputs ensuring interoperability with exports and image processing interfaces.

The high resolution enables higher acuity systems or reduced channel counts, and makes it ideal for integration in multi-channel systems. For simplified integration, the FL35 wqxga is a single chassis solution, with five precision optical lenses, providing sustained high contrast, accurate color rendition and sharpness for unrivalled image quality.

projectiondesign will exhibit their unrivalled product portfolio at I/ITSEC 2011 on Booth #2563 at the OCCC, Orlando, FL between 28 November – 1 December 2011.
