SurgeX International Commissions Global AC Power and Grounding White Paper

Audio Systems Group’s Jim Brown authors essential guide for consultants and integrators

BLUE BELL, Pennsylvania — SurgeX International, the industry leading manufacturer of AC power distribution and protection products for the global marketplace, announces the free availability of a new white paper, Power and Grounding for Audio and Video Systems: A White Paper for the Real World – International Edition.

Authored by Jim Brown of Chicago’s Audio Systems Group, Inc., the 43-page document was commissioned by SurgeX International to serve consultants and IT/AV system integrators as a core guide on the proper implementation of 120/230-volt AC power platforms with correct connection, distribution and grounding practices. An indispensable resource for anyone involved in complex system design and integration, the document has been published for complimentary distribution on the SurgeX International website at www.surgexinternational.com/pdf/SurgeX-Power-Ground-EU.pdf.

“The implementation of proper AC power and grounding practices for integrated systems is commonly overlooked,” says SurgeX International Director of Engineering Andy Benton. “So we asked Jim Brown to help enlighten our consultant and integrator base with a definitive white paper on the subject. There are only a handful of IT/AV consultants on the planet that understand these issues at the level that Jim does, and his course at InfoComm has become a requisite for professionals looking to secure CTS status and beyond.”

Brown, himself, adds, “I’m very pleased that SurgeX International saw a need for a global AC power and grounding white paper and commissioned our consulting group to write this document. To me, this demonstrates their commitment to the industry well beyond simply selling power protection and will ultimately help customers design trouble-free AC power platforms for complex integrated systems.”

SurgeX International, based in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, USA, has been providing patented AC power protection and distribution products to the professional IT/AV, industrial, education, government and military markets for over 18 years. SurgeX International is a member of the IAG family of products.

Miami University Graduates to L-ACOUSTICS

Loud & Clear installs KARA system at Millett Hall

OXFORD, Ohio – March 2013 — John D. Millett Hall on the campus of Miami University in Oxford, Ohio is best recognized as home to the school’s popular RedHawks basketball and volleyball teams. But the 9,200-capacity venue is also well known as the site for the school’s commencement exercises, as well as concerts and other events from a list of guests as varied as Yo-Yo Ma, Beck, Bill Cosby, The Fray, O.A.R., Bela Fleck, Jay Leno and the Dalai Lama.

With the facility’s aging distributed PA system struggling to even accommodate announcements at sporting events, the school hired Cincinnati-based L-ACOUSTICS Certified Provider Loud & Clear, Inc. to supply a sound reinforcement system each time it hosted a concert. Now, Loud & Clear has turned a satisfied rental client into an even happier fixed install client with the recent installation of an L-ACOUSTICS KARA system. more
