LAMBEAU FIELD NEW HOME FOR DANLEY GENESIS HORNS

GREEN BAY, WISCONSIN – NOVEMBER 2011: It would be hard to overstate the cultural significance of Lambeau Field. Set in a mid-sized city in eastern Wisconsin, the 73,000-seat “Frozen Tundra” is home to the reigning NFL champion Green Bay Packers. Season tickets to Lambeau Field have been sold out for over half a century, and despite repeated seating capacity expansions, the average wait time for the 81,000 desperate souls on the season ticket waiting list is thirty years. In addition to the high drama of “regular” Packers football, Lambeau Field hosted the 1967 “Ice Bowl,” where -15-degree air (-45 wind chill) provided a merciless backdrop for a contest that would have been historic at any temperature. As part of an ongoing commitment to ensure that game day lives up to its reputation, the Packers recently heeded pleas to improve stadium sound. A new distributed system, based on Danley Sound Labs’ revolutionary Genesis Horn, Synergy Horn, and Tapped Horn loudspeaker technologies, now provides clarity, intelligibility, and punch that has exceeded all expectations.

ASHLY AMPLIFIERS POWER STATE-OF-THE-ART NATIONAL FLIGHT ACADEMY IMMERSIVE LEARNING CENTER

PENSACOLA, FLORIDA – OCTOBER 2011: It’s a fact that high school students in the United States are, on average, falling behind their international peers in the foundational subjects of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Numerous initiatives are in place to address this ominous knowledge gap, but none are so viscerally appealing as the National Flight Academy (NFA). Set to “sail” in early 2012, NFA is an immersive, high-tech, aviation-inspired learning program on the grounds of the National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola, Florida. Its multi-story building uses state-of-the-art virtual reality and technological wizardry to replicate the experience and STEM-demanding missions of a U.S. aircraft carrier. Students commit to serve several days on the “carrier,” during which they dramatically increase their STEM proficiency and, perhaps more importantly, enthusiasm. Ashly Audio amplifiers contribute to the convincing air of the NFA environment by providing 24/7-reliable power for sound effects and paging.

TIGHTER, EFFICIENT, MUSICAL, TRANSPARENT. DANLEY BOXES DELIVER FOR CANADA’S GRANT MEMORIAL BAPTIST CHURCH

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA – NOVEMBER 2011: Grant Memorial Baptist Church in Winnipeg, Manitoba was founded by Scandinavian immigrants in 1894. In the hundred-plus years that followed, Grant Memorial grew steadily into a cornerstone of Winnipeg civic life. Today, a residence for seniors and a K-12 school (serving over 800 students) share the modest property that also includes the church’s over 1,500-seat sanctuary (1,123 Main/430 Balcony) and multi-purpose auditorium. Until recently, the school’s renown for performing arts education was a bit of an irony, as the A/V system in the auditorium that supported its public performances, as well as weekend services, did not match the caliber of the content or talent. With some brotherly advice, Grant Memorial recently celebrated, as part of a number of other capital projects, a new Danley Sound Labs-based sound reinforcement system that is now perfectly musical and intelligible.

Dan Dugan Unveils E-3 Automatic Mixing Controller

The Dugan Model E-3 provides seamless automatic microphone mixing.

San Francisco, California — Dan Dugan Sound Design has introduced the Dugan Model E-3 Automatic Mixing Controller. The Model E-3 replaces the Model D-3 as Dugan’s top-of-the-line 8-channel automatic mixing controller with AES digital I/O. Through its interface with Dugan’s Model CP-2 control panel, the Model E-3 provides all the functions of the Model D-3 including the Dugan Speech System, the Dugan Music System, Dugan Gain Limiting and three automixing groups in a smaller and more economical box.

“The Model D-3 was our most versatile controller, but in the past few years advances in technology have made it possible to deliver lower latency, a smaller size and a lower price for the same capabilities,” said Dan Dugan. “We are passing these improvements on to our customers.”

AES3 Audio connections are made through a DB-25 connector; readily available cable squids can be used where XLR connectors are desired. I/O may also be switched to ADAT optical connectors, as in Dugan’s other E-series controllers. The E-3 can be operated from the Dugan Control Panel for Java (included in the purchase price), the Model CP-2 physical control panel (optional; two rack unit height) or the mute and bypass buttons on the E-3’s front panel. To make larger systems, the Model E-3 links with all other digital Dugans, including the Models D-2, D-3, E, E-1 and Dugan-MY16. Rack mounting accessories are included to mount a single unit, and two units may be mounted side by side in a single rack space.

Dan Dugan Sound Design automatic mic mixing products eliminate cueing errors, reduce feedback and ambient noise pickup, allow for smooth transitions between talkers, provide consistent system gain no matter how many mics are open, have the ability of handling up to 64 live microphones, and can be remotely controlled.
