nest-_1.jpg

The expanding Colombo Group, headed by former fabric head of promotion Steve Ball and Riz Shaikh, recently added its first live/dance club to a portfolio of London bars and gastro-pubs.

Occupying the site of the former Bardens Boudoir in Dalston, East London, is The Nest, where technology specialists Middlesex Sound & Light (MSL) were tasked with designing a flexible sound system around Martin Audio components.

Steve Ball and Matt Monhardt, general manager of the 300-capacity venue, had specifically requested Martin Audio. “Martin Audio is the best sound system we’ve heard in club situations,? he said. “We told Middlesex Sound & Light that we wanted Martin Audio loudspeakers and amplifiers because the impact and precision are so much better.

“We also wanted flexible zoning, allowing as much bass as possible on the tiny dance floor, while at the same time enabling the music level to be adjusted at more

Martin Audio Fills Comic Entertainments With Glee

glee_1.jpg

––Pacific Sound & Light’s Challenging Flagship Venue Installation––

Having provided technical infrastructures for three other Glee Clubs around the country, Paul Duffy’s Pacific Sound & Light faced their toughest challenge yet masterminding the new flagship venue, set in a former Jongleurs in Nottingham’s historic British Waterways Building.

Owned by Mark Tughan’s Comic Enterprises, these hybrid theatres host a diverse program of entertainment––from comedy to eclectic folk and emerging and established artists. But it was the enormous width and narrow depth of Nottingham’s main theater, complemented by a ‘letterbox’ balcony with raked seating and difficult sightlines that provided the real challenge. Pacific needed to source a sound system that would give even venue coverage across the frequency range — whoever was performing on stage. Having provided problem-free Martin Audio solutions to Comic Enterprises for the past ten years, the British manufacturer again became Paul Duffy’s first port of call.

Fairfax County Schools Takes Visionary Approach For Video Wall

fairfax-vf1.jpg

Fairfax, VA–-The Security Operations Center Office for the Safety and Security department at Fairfax County Public Schools was recently tasked to move out of their longtime facility and move into a new facility and rebuild their console to make use of the latest technology standards.

As Security Technology Specialist Jack Guglielmo tells it, “Fairfax County is the country’s 13th largest school district and we have two of our own safety and security departments, one doing safety risk management, one doing security. In our section, Security Services, one of many functions is to centrally monitor intrusion and fire alarms for about 230 different facilities. And we do that from a central console in our security operations center. And let me stipulate, we had to achieve state of the art on a limited budget.?

A key component of the new system is Middle Atlantic Products’ VisionFrame™ video wall that is more

Wavefronts At The Waterside

Advanced Martin Audio Cinema System At New £35m Aylesbury Theater

When Northern Light won a competitive bid to provide an advanced technical infrastructure for the new £35 million Aylesbury Waterside Theater, the company set out to design a fully-integrated system that was versatile, reconfigurable and able to carry out remote system diagnostics over a LAN via the resident PC.

Evenly dispersed sound was of paramount importance, since Aylesbury has three audience tiers (including fixed-seating balcony and upper balcony levels) and optional ground floor seating wagons to enable the 1200-seat auditorium to convert into a larger 1800-capacity standing space.

Thus Northern Light project manager Simon Cooper decided to base his sound reinforcement solution around Martin Audio’s purpose-designed Wavefront theater systems.

For the primary system, he chose 14 purpose designed WT3 arrayable 3-way compact theatre enclosures. These are designed more
