DANLEY LOUDSPEAKERS AND SUBS LEAD THE CHARGE AT CALVARY BAPTIST CHURCH

calvary_baptist.JPGSALT LAKE CITY, UTAH – JULY 2012: Founded in the late 1890s, Calvary Baptist Church has a long and proud history in Salt Lake City, Utah. Its high-energy gospel services have electrified parishioners since its inception, and, like other mid-sized churches, it has more or less kept pace with the technological advances that have defined the past century. However, the sanctuary’s 1990s-era sound reinforcement system lacked the power and clarity needed to maximize the impact of Calvary’s wonderful gospel musicians and vocalists, and the lack of a video system dated the experience. All that has changed since Audio Video Electronics (AVE) of Maple Grove, Minnesota installed articulate, yet powerful Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers and subwoofers and a thorough video system.

Not long ago, AVE performed an installation at Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in St. Paul, Minnesota, and the needs and circumstances of Calvary more

ASHLY PEMA 8125.70 COMBINED DSP/AMP PROVIDES BONUS PROCESSING AT MICHIGAN HOTEL

grandrapids_hilton.JPGGRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN – JULY 2012: In addition to comfortable rooms and splendid amenities, the Hilton Hotel in Grand Rapids, Michigan offers over 7,000 square-feet of flexible event and meeting space for wedding receptions, parties, conferences, and the like. An array of microphone and line-level inputs tie into a sound reinforcement system that had been working for the Hilton and its guests admirably for over a decade. When, after extended 24/7 service, one of the system’s Ashly amplifiers gave up the ghost, the Hilton asked for an Ashly replacement, counting on another long run of trouble-free performance. KVO Communications, the local A/V contractor and integrator, that has been providing the Hilton with technical support for events for over fifteen years, obliged that request and installed an Ashly Pema 8125.70. Not only does the new Pema 8125.70 give the hotel eight amplifier channels in a more

SYMETRIX JUPITER PROCESSOR AT THE TAI O HERITAGE HOTEL IN HONG KONG

taio_lookout_exterior.JPGHONG KONG, CHINA – JULY 2012: Tai O is a traditional fishing village on the west coast of Lantau Island, Hong Kong. An agreeable counterpoint to the bustle of the city, Tai O offers visitors a peaceful escape with all the charms of traditional village culture. Recently, Tai O Heritage Hotel restored the village’s 100-year old police station to its full architectural splendor, cleverly adding posh modern amenities without overwhelming the building’s tasteful minimalist aesthetic. Among those amenities is Tai O Lookout, the hotel’s fine dining restaurant, which affords patrons a scenic view from the top of the building. In keeping with the Tai O Heritage’s elegant atmosphere, Hong Kong-based A/V designer Sound Classy Holding Limited gave the restaurant a high-fidelity sound system based on the Symetrix Jupiter 8 turnkey signal processor and the Symetrix ARC-2e user interface. Sound Classy works directly with Sanecore more

DANLEY SOUND LABS’ FAMILY OF JERICHO HORNS GROWS TO FOUR WITH THE INTRODUCTION OF THE J4 “SUPER-TWEETER”

danley_jericho4.JPGGAINESVILLE, GEORGIA – JULY 2012: In addition to drawing on inventor Tom Danley’s decades of experience in the fields of professional sound and military acoustics, Danley Sound Labs, is now fully leveraging the might of its R&D team to expand the new family of Jericho Horns. Now composed of four members – the J1, JH 2, J3, and J4, the Jericho Horns provide stunning fidelity at great distances, applications that are commonly addressed with line arrays, but by ingenious design, the Jericho Horns sidestep the line array’s many faults to deliver phase coherence, frequency response, and imaging detail typical of a professional reference monitor. Whereas the J1, JH 2, and J3 represent variations on a full-frequency theme that fulfill the coverage requirements of different long-throw situations, the J4, while still being a Synergy Horn, is designed to address a problem long ignored by the more

DANLEY JERICHO HORNS DESERT DEMO COMPETES EFFECTIVELY WITH THE ROAR OF MILITARY AIRCRAFT

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – JULY 2012:danley_desert_demo_1.JPG In the days before InfoComm, representatives from Danley Sound Labs arranged an impromptu demonstration of the Danley Jericho Horn family of beefy point-source loudspeakers for long-throw applications. The team rented a 25kV generator and a lift and found an undeveloped industrial park in the desert adjacent to Nellis Air Force Base. Although originally arranged for the benefit of a few representatives from a large university who were considering a Danley Jericho system for their stadium, word of mouth swelled the number of attendees to nearly forty. They walked down the unused road to a distance of 1,500 feet from the source and marveled at the intelligibility of the Jericho cluster, set off against the intermittent roar of fighter jets, stealth bombers, and attack helicopters.

The Danley team used Lab.Gruppen amplifiers and a Danley DSLP48 processor to drive more

ASHLY’S VERSATILE TM-360 AMP/MIXER CHOSEN FOR NATIONAL CZECH & SLOVAK MUSEUM & LIBRARY

czeck_slovak-museum.JPGCEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA – JULY 2012: Established in 1974 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library (NCSML) quickly became a focus of cultural life in east-central Iowa and a tourist destination for travelers both national and international. A series of expansion projects led to a new building dedicated in 1995 by then-US president Bill Clinton, Czech Republic president Václav Havel, and Slovakia president Michal Kovác. A devastating flood in 2008 damaged over $8 million of museum and library collections and caused insurers to balk at the idea of covering the museum for fear the Cedar River would flood again. In an epic, but ultimately cost-effective solution, the NCSML moved its building to higher ground and simultaneously expanded to over 50,000 square feet. The NCSML recently reopened with an inviting gift shop designed to send visitors home with items that more

ASHLY’S PEMA COMBO DSP/AMP IMPROVES THE LOFTY ATMOSPHERE AT CALIFORNIA COUNTRY CLUB

buttecreek_exterior.JPGCHICO, CALIFORNIA – JUNE 2012: Nestled amid meticulously manicured grounds, the stately clubhouse of Butte Creek Country Club (BCCC) in Chico, California is – in addition to the ideal place to relax after a round of golf – a fabulous setting for weddings, fundraisers, and other events. However, until local integration firm Tolar AVL installed a sophisticated Ashly Pema 8250.70 Protea(tm) DSP Matrix Amplifier with Ashly neWR-5 remote wall panels, the clubhouse’s single-source sound reinforcement system was a source of frustration for BCCC management and staff.

“BCCC operates a very high-end facility, and required a sound system to match,” said Chuck Mahar, sales director and project manager with Tolar AVL. “The previous system included a large rack of amplifiers stacked with 70-volt transformers. There was a complete lack of DSP or equalization that meant that the entire clubhouse had to commit to the more

ASHLY TM-360 PUBLIC ADDRESS MIXER/AMP IDEAL FOR OFFICE MASKING SYSTEM

ashly_tm360.JPGNASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – JUNE 2012: When Southeastern Sound, Inc. of Nashville, Tennessee was asked to design and install a masking system for a new tenant build-out in a nearby office building, it was the sort of solid bread and butter job that called for a straightforward, affordable solution. The client requested that the system design be flexible enough to add an emergency announcement capability in the future utilizing the system.

Southeastern Sound senior audio designer Brian Cook used a cost effective Ashly TM-360 Public Address Mixer/Amp with integrated ducking to power the system.

“The client was renovating 5,000 square-feet of office space with 2,000 square-feet left open for cubicles,” explained Cook. “The employees in that open space would be taking calls of a potentially sensitive nature. Therefore, speech privacy was paramount.” After determining the dimensions of the room and the area that more

The new AEC card provides optimum wide-band intelligibility while offering flexible system configuration to meet today’s business and educational teleconferencing needs.

The AEC processing may be applied to the cards’ direct physical inputs or to any input routed to the card from within the SymNet Edge system. This more
