FORWARD-THINKING NURSERY SCHOOL IN JAPAN INSTALLS ASHLY PÊMA INTEGRATED PROCESSOR AND AMPLIFIER

japanesenurseryschool_outside.JPG

HIMEJI CITY, JAPAN – JULY 2011: When it comes time for the sixty pint-sized pupils of Sugoh Nursery School in Himeji City, Japan to put on a show for their parents and caregivers, every budding voice gets heard. It’s not that they project especially well or even that the acoustics of the school’s modest movable stage are so divine. Rather, Sugoh Nursery School has a truly professional-grade sound reinforcement system centered on a cost-effective Ashly pêma integrated processor and amplifier. The system puts the polish on the students’ hard work and allows audience members to truly appreciate their efforts and accomplishments. That gets back to the students, of course, who are inspired to rise to even greater works.

The stage and its sound reinforcement system are part of Sugoh’s brand new state-of-the-art building, which replaces its former residence of 34 years. “The old building had a sound reinforcement system more

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON – JULY 2011: Symetrix, Inc., a leading provider of signal processing technology for the installed sound markets, has named Bormann Marketing, sales representative for Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota and western Wisconsin effective June 1, 2011. Coinciding with this appointment, Loft AV, Symetrix’ rep for Illinois and eastern Wisconsin (Milwaukee area), merged with Bormann Marketing, giving Bormann Marketing sales responsibilities for two key Symetrix territories.

Noted Paul Roberts, director of sales and marketing for Symetrix, “Opportunities to add a sales rep firm of the quality of Bormann Marketing are rare. Having Jon Bormann and his team handle the upper Midwest was a real coup for us. Then having Bormann Marketing merge with our current Illinois and eastern Wisconsin rep, LoFT AV, was icing on the cake. Combining the exceptional sales management skills of LoFT AV’s president, Barbara Sjodin, with the powerhouse team that is Bormann Marketing, is more

Symetrix Zone Mix 760 handles the audio for the stellar A/V system at Boston’s Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar & Grill – the newly-opened, second location at Liberty Wharf on Boston Harbor.

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS – JULY 2011: A beloved household name in Boston, Jerry Remy is a former Red Sox second baseman and the longstanding commentator for all of his former team’s games. Last year, he partnered with the Cronin Group Restaurants to create Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar & Grill just outside of historic Fenway Park. The venture was so successful that the group recently opened a second location at Liberty Wharf on Boston Harbor. An adjacent public dock with fifty slips allows patrons to arrive by land or by sea. Like its predecessor, the new location promises a game-day experience that rivals Fenway itself, with a 32-foot more

JUPITER ENTERS THE MINES

RAPID CITY, SOUTH DAKOTA: In addition to providing a top-tier education to 2,300 students, the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, or “Mines” for short, provides the venue for the Rapid City Area Chamber of Commerce’s Legislative Crackerbarrel sessions. They allow the public to voice its concerns and ideas with the local governing bodies. The Crackerbarrel sessions and several of the Mines’ larger lecture classes take place in the main auditorium of the New Classroom Building. Built in the mid-1990s, the auditorium seats seven hundred in a pie-shaped, multi-tiered room that can be divided via an air-wall into two 350-seat rooms. After two failed attempts to supply the large room with an intelligible, easy-to-use sound reinforcement system, local A/V integrator Haggerty’s Audio Visual supplied the master stroke. The new system centers on Symetrix’ new Jupiter “zero learning curve” processor with a pair of Symetrix ARC-2 wall panel remotes that more

ONE DANLEY JERICHO HORN COVERS 30,000 FANS AT TROY UNIVERSITY

TROY, ALABAMA: Located in southeastern Alabama, Veterans Memorial Stadium is home to the Troy University Trojans. Over the decades, a progression of additions and upgrades raised it up from a glorified grandstand to its current capacity of 30,000 fans. Ever on the lookout for improvements, the school contracted A/V provider, All Pro Sound of Pensacola Florida, who recently revamped the stadium’s sound system with Danley’s Jericho Horn, the JH-90 (a.k.a. the J1). The sound system went from great to fantastic, and now delivers reference-monitor fidelity to every seat in the horseshoe-shaped bowl at 6 dB over the previous system using just a single JH-90 that is positioned behind the upper portion of the scoreboard!

Partly as a consequence of its history, Veterans Memorial Stadium has a few unique features that affected the design of its sound system. Most notably, its scoreboard more

JUPITER GAINS CONTROL OF PARIS’ GARE DE L’EST

gare_de_lest_paris.JPG

PARIS, FRANCE – JUNE 2011: The Gare de l’Est is a train station that connects Paris to Germany, Russia, Switzerland, and other points abroad via high-speed rail, as well as serving as a hub for the Paris Metro. Built in 1849 and with significant additions, Gare de l’Est is one of the oldest and one of the largest train stations in Paris. But despite its age and historical significance (it was from Gare de l’Est that legions of French troops went to the Western fronts of both World Wars), the train station melds old and new elements to form an aesthetic that is strikingly contemporary. Recently, SNCF (France’s railway company) hired United Kingdom- and France-based Sound Directions to update its ticket sales area with sound reinforcement to deliver information and revenue-generating advertisements to waiting customers. Sound Directions relied on a Symetrix Jupiter more

ASPEN’S HOTEL JEROME TURNS TO ASHLY AUDIO’S DSP

ASPEN, COLORADO – JUNE 2011: For ski bums, well-heeled tycoons, and eccentric celebrities alike, Aspen, Colorado represents the perfect alignment of geology and the human passion for snow, speed, and splendor. Off the slopes, the idyllic town caters to the recreational proclivities of its unique visitors, for whom high-class food and drink are a natural part of the good life. Therefore, when the upscale Hotel Jerome and the Aspen-posh restaurant Silver Queen approached Colorado-based A/V designer and integrator Halcyon Productions with woes of ailing and difficult-to-control sound systems, co-owner Heath Manning prescribed Ashly Audio’s ne24.24M modular DSP together with the incredibly easy-to-use WR-5 wall mount remote control. The cost-effective units sound great and provide an appropriately simple level of control for the often harried staff of both establishments.

“User control is a critical issue in the commercial atmosphere of a banquet hall, restaurant, or bar, where the staff are more
