BARCELONA, SPAIN – MAY 2011: Two new hybrid restaurant-bars have stolen the limelight in Barcelona, Spain. Situated in the resurgent neighborhood of El Poble-sec, Tickets and 41° share the same prestigious proprietors, a roof & a wall, and a hi-fi sound system that parallels the ultra-modern, utterly-hip décor. Taken together, the sonic and visual vibe suggests the patron is savoring cuisine and quaffing libations of a promised and glorious future. Indeed, the New York Times listed Tickets as one of the “Ten Restaurants Worth a Plane Ride,” and would-be revelers at the ever-packed 41° will be turned away unless they secured a reservation in advance. Though separately zoned, the two establishments rely on a single, two-rack space Ashly pêma powered processor for all input conditioning, matrix mixing, loudspeaker conditioning, and amplification. It works tirelessly in the background, like a seasoned party planner, to make sure everybody at Tickets and 41° more

ATLANTA, GEORGIA – JUNE 2011: The 12,000 square-foot Ivystone and HomeStyle showroom is located on the busiest floor of AmericasMart in Atlanta, Georgia. Its patrons are the retailers of North America and the world, who flock to the merchandise mart to stock their stores with the hottest brands and latest products. For years, the sister companies limped along with an antiquated sound system that offered little in the way of user control. They recently hired local A/V firm Atlanta Sound & Lighting to replace the old system with something more befitting their industrial prestige. The new system centers on a Symetrix Jupiter 8 “zero learning curve” processor with Symetrix ARC-WEB remote. The fully-programmable ARC-WEB provides secure network control of input source and zone volume from any computer or smartphone, anywhere in the facility or anywhere in the world.

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH – JUNE 2011: Gracie’s Bar in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah promises and delivers something for everybody. It boasts two spacious patios and two floors of comfortable seating, along with a game room and a large, but wonderfully cozy bar. The drink selection is top-notch and the food, under the direction of respected chef Sean Wilde, is a draw in its own right. Utahans gather at Gracie’s to enjoy communal events, such as the Super Bowl or World Cup Soccer on twenty-two flat screens. The bar even brings in DJs and live music, but, until recently, its sound system was difficult to tame on such occasions. Gracie’s contacted Salt Lake City’s Performance Audio to redesign and reconfigure the sound system. Levi Walker, systems manager at Performance Audio, relied on Ashly Audio’s new two-rack space pêma integrated DSP + more

Louisa’s House & Electronics Wins First Powerline Control Systems Project of the Month Contest

Northridge, Calif. — May 31, 2011 — Powerline Control Systems, Inc., the manufacturer of PulseWorx lighting control for residential and light commercial applications, and inventor of Universal Powerline Bus® (UPB) technology, has announced that it has awarded Louisa’s Movie House & Electronics of Durango, Colo. as the Project of the Month winner for May.

Louisa’s Movie House & Electronics’ client needed a system which provided whole home automation for an 18,000 sq. ft. home. While the client demanded the best system available, it also needed to be simple to use and convenient, and the architect was insistent that each room could have no more than a two-gang light outlet. This meant that most lights had to go to lighting panels and keypads, making PCS’ products perfect for this installation. The installer placed 125 WS1D wall switch dimmers, 34 KPLD/R keypad dimmers, and 20 KPCW wall mount keypads, more

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON – MAY 2011: From Symetrix, engineers of the infinitely flexible and expandable SymNet 8×8 DSP and the ‘zero-learning-curve’ Jupiter processors, comes Solus, which couples the most powerful open-architecture SymNet processing to date with cost-saving fixed input/output counts for small to mid-size installations. With the easy-to-use SymNet Designer software, integrators can either use or modify the dozens of existing Solus templates or build entirely new designs from scratch. Currently, there are two Solus hardware units that differ only in their input and output counts. Solus 4 has four mic/line (+phantom) inputs and four outputs, whereas Solus 8 has eight mic/line (+phantom) inputs and eight outputs. Unlike other members of the SymNet family, the Solus processors forego input/output expansion in favor of reduced cost.

The Solus 4 and Solus 8 share the same rich set of communications and interface possibilities. Each boasts Ethernet, ARC port, RS-232 port, two control more

SYMETRIX JUPITER DSP: INVADING LOWER ONTARIO ONE ESTABLISHMENT AT A TIME

GUELPH, ONTARIO, CANADA – MAY 2011: The Weinstein Group is an A/V installation and event production company located in Fergus, Ontario, and its owner, Michael Weinstein commands a broad and deep knowledge of the many facets that go into a successful A/V installation or event. Over the decades that he has been building, tuning, and fixing A/V systems, Weinstein has observed that most systems go awry not through any fault of their own. Rather, it is the busy fingers of employees with just a little bit of A/V knowledge (a dangerous thing, you may recall) attempting to make “improvements” that are anything but. Recently, Weinstein has had great success “finger-proofing” his A/V designs at famed Langdon Hall Country House Hotel & Spa in Cambridge, the University of Guelph’s University Club, and the city’s Victoria Road Recreation Center using Symetrix’ new Jupiter-series of “zero learning curve” DSPs.
