SYMETRIX SOLUS 16 REVITALIZES FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH OF APPLETON

appelton_fum_church.JPGAPPLETON, WISCONSIN: The roots of First United Methodist Church of Appleton, Wisconsin were planted 165 years ago when a frontier preacher named William H. Sampson gave a sermon in one of the few shanties that comprised the nascent town. Sorrows and joys enough to fill a book span the years between then and now, and presently First United is the spiritual home for over 1,300 residents and a cornerstone of community life. Long ago, the church outgrew its chapel and constructed a larger sanctuary on adjacent land. However, the chapel continues to serve the community on a nearly daily basis, hosting organizational meetings, prayer meetings, weddings and musical events – most notably involving students and staff from nearby Lawrence University. Metro Sound & Video recently modernized the chapel’s sound system with a Symetrix Solus 16 processor and Extron user control that will soon be more

SYMETRIX SOLUS AFFORDABLY INTEGRATES AUDIO AND CONTROL IN HISTORIC SWISS CHURCH

reformierte_pfarrkirche.JPGMESSEN, SWITZERLAND – JULY 2012: Home to nearly 1,500 Swiss residents, the charming pastoral municipality of Messen in northwestern Switzerland claims numerous buildings of deep historical significance nestled amid the rolling foothills of the Jura Mountains. Among them is Reformierte Pfarrkirche, a church whose foundation was laid before the year 1000 A.D. and whose current walls have been standing since 1480. Despite its age, or perhaps because of it, Reformierte Pfarrkirche was overdue for an A/V system upgrade, which Pro Sound Beschallungstechnik recently provided. Although the plans originally called for multiple hardware units to provide audio processing and system control, Pro Sound Beschallungstechnik simplified things and cut costs without compromising anything by using an open-architecture Symetrix Solus 8 processor for total system integration.

“Historic structures do not have to be incompatible with contemporary expectations for audio and video support,” said Harry Horlacher, pro more

“THE GATHERING” OF FINDLAY OHIO, WITH ASHLY NE24.24M PROCESSOR AND DIPOLE OPEN-BAFFLE LOUDSPEAKERS

thegathering_1131.JPGFINDLAY, OHIO – JULY 2012: The Gathering is an upscale restaurant in the mid-sized city of Findlay, Ohio. With a history stretching back several decades, The Gathering resides in an elegant 1890s-era building and is tastefully furnished and decorated to maintain turn-of-the-century charm. When a new owner recently took over, he decided to convert the previously unused third story into a bar. He committed the new bar to a “1900-industrial” motif that had to be adhered to in every respect. Regional designer and installer House of Hindenach A/V Systems obliged the aesthetic requirements and still delivered amazing, dimensional ambiance with the help of an Ashly ne24.24M processor and a horizontal array of custom-designed dipole open-baffle loudspeakers.

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
