KLEIN + HUMMEL MONITORS TAKE MANHATTAN

ianstynes_brittmyers.JPGNEW YORK, NEW YORK – JULY 2009: Since opening Great City Productions in the Chelsea district of Manhattan in 2003, owner Britt Myers is constantly busy. Myers and Ian Stynes split – or rather double up – the role of chief engineer and tackle projects that range from indie rock records to TV spots with the support of an accomplished team of freelance engineers and composers. Until recently, Myers felt obligated, not only to work through the weekend but, to burn precious time testing mixes on every sound system he could get his hands on. But with the purchase of two Klein + Hummel 5.1 active monitoring systems, which translate beautifully, Myers has reduced his stress level. more

ASHLY AMPS UP LANCASTER COUNTY CONVENTION CENTER

lancasterconventioncenter.JPGLANCASTER, PENNSYLVANIA – JULY 2009: More than ten years in the making, the issues surrounding the building of the historic, yet thoroughly modern, Lancaster County Convention Center (LCCC) will live long in local lore. There were many delays. But the biggest holdup arose from the need to incorporate the landmark façade of Lancaster’s former Watt & Shand department store, which used to be on the National Register of Historic Places, into the plans. The delay, however, had an upside. LCCC’s comprehensive A/V system benefitted from network-ready Ashly NE8250 amplifiers, which didn’t exist when the system was originally designed! more

symvue_axiomtek.JPGSEATTLE, WASHINGTON – JULY 2009: Symetrix, a leading provider of audio processing solutions for the commercial, broadcast, and pro audio markets, has signed an agreement with Axiomtek to distribute the GOT-5100T-830 touch screen PC in the United States for use with SymNet’s groundbreaking SymVue real-time user interface technology.
