SYMETRIX INTRODUCES SOLUS 16

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON – OCTOBER 2011: Symetrix announces an addition to the SymNet Solus product line – the Solus 16. “The Solus 4 and Solus 8 already provide two of the most popular form factors requested by integrators,” said Trent Wagner, senior product manager at Symetrix. “But input counts run higher in many types of installations, and we received a barrage of requests for a higher input form factor. The Solus 16 answers that request without requiring a jump to networked DSP or separate expansion I/O devices maintaining the high value for which the Solus line is known.”

Solus is powerful SymNet DSP hardware, ideal for small to mid-sized installations not requiring I/O expansion. The entire family of SymNet hardware, including Solus, is configured using open architecture SymNet Designer software. System designers have the option to use or modify Solus DSP design templates for basic projects, or, to create unique designs entirely from scratch.

The three Solus hardware offerings differ only in their audio input and output counts: Solus 16 with sixteen inputs and eight outputs, Solus 8 with eight mic/line inputs and eight outputs, and Solus 4 with four inputs and four outputs. Ethernet, ARC port, RS-232 port, two control inputs, and four logic outputs complete the control feature set. To simplify set-up, a front panel LCD displays system settings. Solus supports Symetrix ARC wall panels, third party control systems, and SymVue, a SymNet end-user control panel application.

TO ARRAY OR NOT TO ARRAY: DANLEY JERICHO HORNS PROVE TO BE A BETTER ALTERNATIVE FOR GVSU FOOTBALL STADIUM

lubbers_stadium.JPG

ALLENDALE, MICHIGAN – OCTOBER 2011: With a student body in excess of 24,000, Grand Valley State University (GVSU) in Allendale, Michigan is a major institution of higher education. Its football team is widely recognized as one of the fiercest competitors in the NCAA’s Division II, and it won the national championship in 2002, 2003, 2005 and 2006. It’s no surprise that football is a very big deal at GVSU, a fact reflected in the high-end accommodations of Lubbers Stadium, the school’s large (by Division II standards) football stadium. Its current capacity of 8,500 is regularly met and often wildly exceeded. At a home opener, over 14,000 fans crammed in to see the GVSU Lakers trounce Ferris State. When the school had finally had enough of Lubbers Stadium’s piecemeal audio system and the innumerable complaints it inspired, they hired ASCOM of Holland, Michigan more

SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA – SEPTEMBER 2011: Reel FX Creative Studios is an award-winning animation studio (Katy Perry, Rihanna, Audi, Looney Toons, Watchmen, et al.) with production facilities in Dallas, Texas and Santa Monica, California. Recently, Reel FX Creative Studios repurposed a space at its Santa Monica location to build a new 3D editing suite.

The duo have worked at such heavy-hitter studios as HBO, Light Iron Digital, Larson Sound, and others. Black has also worked for Skywalker Sound, director Michael Mann, and film mixer Paul Massey.

Citing its flexibility, high-end fidelity, and competitive price point, Black used a Symetrix SymNet Solus 8 to route, level, and condition output to more

CINCINNATI, OHIO – SEPTEMBER 2011: For over a century, God’s Bible School & College in Cincinnati, Ohio has been preparing young people for effective careers in the service of the church, both at home and overseas. A fully accredited college, GBSC offers its students a well-balanced curriculum together with all the social amenities of the larger colleges in the Buckeye State. Among its architectural gems is a beautiful 1,000-seat chapel housed within the Knapp Memorial Building, which, until recently, limped along with an underpowered and semi-functional sound reinforcement system. A new collection of Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers and subwoofers has breathed new life into the chapel – and at a very affordable price.

The musical portions of the services held by GBSC are best described as classical, infused with elements of southern gospel. Apart from the steady accrual of speaker failures in the old system, the school’s music department more

A GIFT FOR SAINT NICHOLAS: ASHLY GEAR TURNS TERRIBLE SOUND TO GOLD

st_nicholas_1.JPG

TARPON SPRINGS, FLORIDA – SEPTEMBER 2011: St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Tarpon Springs, Florida is an impressive structure. Built in 1942, it earned a spot on the National Register of Historic Places to help preserve its gorgeous exterior and breathtaking interior, which features white walls and ornate, gilded trim together with classical oil paintings and stained glass. However, as fine as St. Nicholas Church appears to the eye, its sound reinforcement has long been profoundly disappointing. Reverberant and boomy acoustics, paired with utterly ineffective audio processing and loudspeaker placement, ensured that St. Nicholas would not be eligible for a spot on the National Registry of Intelligible Places, were such a registry to exist. Recently, Tampa-based A/V integrator CSI used cutting-edge sound reinforcement technology, centered on an Ashly Audio ne8800 DSP with a WR-5 NE remote control and a Bosch steerable Vari-directional Array, to reign in the boom and splash. more

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON – SEPTEMBER 2011: Symetrix announces the release of the Zone Mix 761, which adds ARC-WEB compatibility to the powerful feature set formerly found in the predecessor Zone Mix 760, one of the company’s most popular products. ARC-WEB allows integrators to build customized interfaces that operate on users’ smartphones or Internet-connected computers. In addition to ARC-WEB compatibility, the Zone Mix 761 shines with a modernized aesthetic similar to that of Symetrix Jupiter series and includes a new collection of logic outputs on the rear panel.

“The Zone Mix 761 steps into the shoes of the 760, which has been among our most popular products,” said Trent Wagner, senior product manager at Symetrix. “With twelve inputs and six outputs, it excels at three of the most commonly-required functions in small- to mid-sized installations: paging with automatic ducking; flexible routing and mixing; and comprehensive processing at the input and the more
