Listen Technologies iDSP Assistive Listening System Chosen for Congregation Emanu-El Synagogue in San Francisco, California

EmanuEl

— Listen iDSP system’s ease of installation and intuitive operation allowed integrator Pro Media / UltraSound to get the system up and running in time for the High Holy Days —

BLUFFDALE, UT — San Francisco’s Congregation Emanu-El has been northern California’s landmark Jewish synagogue, and one of the most dynamic Jewish communities in America, since its founding in 1850. Now in its third site (a gorgeous structure dedicated in 1926, at Lake Street and Arguello Boulevard), the congregation is the spiritual home of over 2,100 households. With the temple’s membership in mind, the facility recently integrated iDSP (Intelligent Digital Signal Processing) assistive listening products from Listen Technologies Corporation, the leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of assistive listening products for over 16 years. Martinez, California-based firm Pro Media / UltraSound – a leading professional A/V integrator specializing in installations as varied as Levi’s Stadium [the home of the 49ers], the de Young Museum, the Santa Clara Convention Center, the San Francisco Opera House, corporate and worship facilities of all sizes and others – worked closely with Listen personnel on the project, completed in time for the High Holy Days.

The Listen Technologies components selected for the Congregation Emanu-El installation included LT-800-072-01 Stationary RF Transmitter (72 MHz); LA-122 Universal Antenna Kit (72 and 216 MHz); LA-326 Universal Rack Mounting Kit; LR-4200-072-P1 iDSP RF Receiver Package (72 MHz); LA-304 Assistive Listening Notification Signage Kit; and LA-381-01 Intelligent 12-Unit Charging Tray.

The systems were integrated in both the synagogue’s Main Sanctuary (1640 capacity) and smaller Martin Meyer Sanctuary (350 capacity). Pro Media / UltraSound Project Lead Patrick Waller explains how this installation came about: “Congregation Emanu-El has a number of elderly congregants and others with hearing loss or impairment. There were some assistive listening systems in place, but they weren’t compatible with certain hearing aids, or were just not effective for some members. Judi Leff, Director of Operations and Office Management at Congregation Emanu-El, is a longtime customer and friend of ours, and she contacted me about upgrading their assistive listening tools, and we explored a number of options. Products from Listen Technologies immediately came to mind, but some of our ideas were not feasible right away, because the space’s marble floors prevent wiring/looping techniques. Sam Nord at Listen let us know about their iDSP products being unveiled earlier this year. Everything clicked into place for the project, and we were able to move forward immediately. Everyone at Listen was so helpful during the planning process, and the installation was seamless and efficient.”

Pro Media / UltraSound installed and commissioned the system quickly, to have everything in place in time for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services, which are some of the most well-attended services of the worship year. Waller continues, “After the High Holy Days, we checked in with Judi to see how the iDSP systems had worked – she said that there were several congregants for whom it made a huge difference, and she even got an email from one who had been part of the congregation for decades, and said that this is the first time she’s been able to really hear the service in four years. And it was an easy installation – we basically got the system configured and handed it over to them. Plug and play!”

Judi Leff stated, “We are always trying to make sure we are compliant with ADA and offering the latest technology to our congregants. A more involved installation was going to cost many thousands of dollars, and as a non-profit house of worship, we were very concerned. When Pro Media / UltraSound figured out what a problem solver Listen iDSP would be, we were so excited, and our congregants were happy as well. One happy congregant emailed me: ‘I’m thrilled with the new system. It worked for me and I hope it continues. It’s the first time in about four years that I have been able to hear.’”

The iDSP line was introduced by Listen Technologies earlier this year. In developing the iDSP, Listen closely focused on the user experience and ease of dispensing, inventory management and battery management at the venue – all based on input from consultants, system integrators, venue owners and end users. The iDSP 72MHz receiver revolutionizes how an RF system works, offering precise clarity with 20 dB less hiss than other RF receivers. The integrated neck loop improves the experience for people who have hearing aids and cochlear implants with telecoils. The result is a significantly improved listening experience, including an integrated neck loop/lanyard; streamlined dispensing, collecting and care; and environmentally friendly advanced battery technology – in the smallest, lightest device of its kind.

The firm has recently expanded the setup in their mobile broadcast mix trucks with the addition of a RedNet 6 MADI Bridge from Focusrite.

Dante is clearly becoming an industry standard among many professionals and facilities. With the RedNet 6 MADI interface, we are very comfortable converting a Dante signal into something that we’re more familiar with, and vice versa. It’s a flawless, all-in-one tool.”

Audio-Technica’s Dante™-Enabled Products Compatible with Symetrix’ Newly-Released SymNet Composer 3.0

ATND971_ATND8677

STOW, OH, January 7, 2015 — Audio-Technica, a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 50 years, has announced that Symetrix’ newly-released SymNet Composer 3.0 open-architecture design software offers native integration of Audio-Technica’s ATND971 Dante™-enabled cardioid condenser boundary microphone and the ATND8677 Dante-enabled microphone desk stand.

Version 3.0 has built upon the native support of Audinate’s Dante media networking technology for select third-party devices in earlier releases, and extends support of market-leading products thanks to new partnerships with Audio-Technica and others. Users of the Symetrix SymNet Radius AEC, Radius 12×8 EX and Edge Dante-scalable DSPs are now able to streamline their configuration procedures and achieve network discovery, Dante signal routing, and audio setup of supported Audio-Technica devices.

Launched at the InfoComm Show in Las Vegas earlier this year, Audio-Technica’s ATND971 bridges the gap between audio and IT as the first wired microphone that transmits audio and control data together over Audinate’s Dante network protocol. A simple Ethernet connection allows the ATND971 network microphone to communicate across an existing network of Dante-enabled devices and, with the microphone’s programmable user switch, control any of those devices at the push of a button.

Gary Dixon, sales engineer, installed sound at Audio-Technica U.S., remarks, “The ATND series and Symetrix SymNet Composer 3.0 software provide a knowledgeable and creative AV integrator infinite possibilities for system design. The goal of Symetrix and Audio-Technica working together is to provide more options for control and connectivity, allowing for more profit opportunities for our AV integrators. The ATND series and SymNet Composer software transform the traditional tabletop microphone into a Dante networked audio user interface that can be customized by the AV integrator.”

Also integrated with Symetrix SymNet Composer 3.0, the ATND8677 Microphone Desk Stand fits gooseneck microphones with standard XLRM-type outputs, offering installers previously unavailable simplicity in adding gooseneck microphones to Dante audio networks.

Bose® FreeSpace® DS 100F Loudspeakers Provide Sound Upgrade in VIP Suite Renovations at Gillette Stadium

GilletteStadium_Suite_Photo1 GilletteStadium_Suite_Photo2

Extensive renovations were completed for a portion of the stadium’s suites in time for kickoff of the current season

Framingham, Massachusetts, January 7, 2015 – Management at Foxborough, Massachusetts’ Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots and New England Revolution, recently undertook phase one of an extensive renovation project for the venue’s 89 Suites. New receivers and TV monitors, better user control and Bluetooth® compatibility were goals for the new setup, but perhaps first and foremost was the audio. Numerous FreeSpace® DS 100F loudspeakers from Bose® Professional now grace each renovated suite.

“We are in the process of upgrading all of our suites in order to improve and enhance the experience for our suite holders and their guests,” said Jim Nolan, Senior Vice President of Finance, Administration and Operations for the Patriots’ organization. “This involved floor-to-ceiling renovations, including all new furniture, flooring, wall treatments and décor, televisions and a complete A/V upgrade for each suite. And very simply, when we think audio, we think Bose.”

“Bose was kind enough to meet with us and explore some options,” added Nolan. “We are thrilled with our final selections. The sound quality is incredible. You feel so much closer to the action. Bose is the industry leader and we are proud to provide our patrons with such immersive audio.”

A major goal of the renovations was to give suite visitors control over their experience, and touch pads act as the control centers for each room. Nolan stated, “With the touch pad control, we will give our guests choices as to what they would prefer to hear. They can listen to the stadium public address announcer or the audio from the televisions. We’ve made them Bluetooth enabled so that if somebody wants to play music off their smartphone in the suite, it gives them that option, too. We think it will be a lot of fun for our suite holders and a great way to entertain their guests. Everyone is thrilled with the addition of Bose audio. The installation was easy and met our deadline. We couldn’t be more pleased with their performance!”

About Gillette Stadium

The 68,756-seat stadium is the full-time home of the NFL’s New England Patriots, which have sold out the stadium for every home game since it opened in 2002.
