FROM TRADITIONAL TO MODERN. DANLEY LOUDSPEAKERS RAISE THE LEVEL OF PERFORMANCE FOR FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF MIDLAND, TEXAS

fb_midland_exterior.JPGMIDLAND, TEXAS – JUNE 2009: Founded way back in 1892, First Baptist Church (FBC) of Midland, Texas is one of the oldest and largest churches in the Lone Star State. From humble beginnings, the congregation moved to its present campus in 1954, which contains dozens of program rooms, classrooms, and meeting halls, all architecturally focused around an impressive 1,200-seat worship center. FBC’s worship style has diversified with the times, and over the last two decades its Sunday program has split into four separate services – one traditional, two thoroughly modern, and the other bridging the gap. However, FBC’s sound system failed to keep up and languished for a decade, delivering a floppy, inarticulate performance for even the traditional service. Recently, Taipale Media Systems, Inc. of Allen, Texas, stepped in to design a Danley-centered system of uncompromising fidelity and power, and Summit Integrated Systems, Lafayette, Colorado, completed its installations just days before FBC’s big Easter production. more

SENNHEISER TEAMS UP WITH FOX SPORTS TO FIND THE NEXT GREAT AUDIO TECH

aldous_stevens.JPGCHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA – JUNE 2009: Delivering a successful sports broadcast for network television is as much art as it is science, but a confluence of forces are threatening to make it a lost art practiced only by a graying and ever-shrinking cadre of sages. Sennheiser has teamed up with FOX Sports to reverse that trend with an immensely practical, hands-on, trial-by-fire introduction to real-world sports broadcasting for promising students of telecommunications. David Missall, Sennheiser’s director of market development for the Eastern region, originated the program and selected its first student, junior Michael Stevens of Ball State University, to work with industry veteran Fred Aldous in the FOX Sports mix truck at the Coca Cola 600 NASCAR race in Charlotte, North Carolina. The experience was, in equal parts, demanding, eye-opening, and inspiring. more

SYMNET SOARS IN GOTHIC CHURCH

firstpresbyt_eriepa_exterior.JPGERIE, PENNSYLVANIA – JUNE 2009: Built in grandeur amidst the economic tide of the Great Depression, First Presbyterian Church of the Covenant in Erie, Pennsylvania is a spiritual and architectural gem.
