Credenza Racks Line Expanded with Deeper Options and New Mounts

Fairfield, NJ–– Middle Atlantic Products is expanding its offering of C5 Series Credenza Racks to include a variety of new sizes and monitor mounting options. Providing more flexibility to meet the needs of a wider variety of applications, the line expansion includes the addition of deeper models, extender kits and single and dual monitor mounts.

Deeper version Credenza racks provide an additional 4” of useable depth to accommodate deeper components including Middle Atlantic UPS systems with expansion batteries. A different option for accommodating deeper equipment is available for standard size Credenza Racks: new Depth Extender Kits are field-installable and add nearly 3” to the frame’s useable depth while staying within the overall depth of the wood surface.

Enhancing its usability for conference room applications, new Single and Dual Monitor Mounts are now available for attaching one or two larger monitors directly to the Credenza Rack. This useful alternative to wall mounting monitors can be further equipped with new camera shelves for videoconferencing systems.

Credenza Racks are designed with a steel frame that ships quickly from stock and a separate outer covering that can be tailored to the customer’s specifications. They are integrated with quiet, energy-saving thermostatically controlled fans that automatically run when needed.

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.

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.

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

Valencia, Spain – July 2012 … In late June the city of Valencia and its Valencia Street Circuit – a modern, thrilling route through the streets of the Mediterranean city, which includes 25 turns and a top speed of around 323 km per hour (201 mph) – played host to a number of events held in celebration of the Formula 1 European Gran Prix. D.A.S. Audio professional sound systems were on hand to provide sound reinforcement at some of these exclusive events as well as at the circuit itself, helping to bring the emotion of the world’s biggest motorsport event to the thousands of professionals and fans who descended upon Valencia for the race. more

Landmark Kansas City Venue Gets the Full Renkus-Heinz Treatment

Kansas City, MO – July 2012…  The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts is the centerpiece of Kansas City’s downtown revival. The futuristic 285,000-square-foot, $413 million project links the city’s downtown center with its landmark Crossroads Arts and Power & Light Districts, and is home to the Kansas City Symphony, Kansas City Ballet, and the Lyric Opera of Kansas City.

The two performance spaces – Muriel Kauffman Theatre and Helzberg Hall – were designed by renowned architect Moshe Safdie. Both were created using ultra-modern, sound-isolating building-within-a-building construction; a foundation, walls, and roof surrounded by fully independent foundation, walls, and roof.

The 1600-seat Helzberg Hall, home to the Kansas City Symphony, offers seating in a semi-circular “vineyard-style” configuration that surrounds more than 270 degrees of the massive 2700-square-foot stage, placing no seat more than 100 feet away.

Consultants Engineering Harmonics, whose team included Senior Consultant Martin Van Dijk, Associate Consultant Roer Gans, and designer Russ Noble, worked with Nagata Acoustics to design the sound system, which was installed by Clair Brothers. With the venue’s acoustics primarily designed for symphonic sound, the hall essentially called for dual systems – one for music, the other for voice intelligibility.

The main performance system is centered around Renkus-Heinz ST-Series reference point arrays, with left and right clusters of ST4, augmented by ST-2M cabinets. Rear and side fills are amply covered with ST2-R and ST2-MR boxes, while TRX62H compact systems provide over balcony fills. A dozen PNX112 Subswoofers are built into the stage lip, while 72 Iconyx SSL drivers are built into a custom baffle inside the balcony for additional coverage.

The innovative voice reinforcement system utilizes three Iconyx IC16-5 digitally steered arrays. The three columns are arranged in a 360-degree configuration, with each column covering a 120-degree pattern. The “voice stick” is concealed in the ceiling, descending from its soffit inside the 100,000-lb acoustical reflector canopy above the stage.

The massive, seven-story glass enclosed lobby was also treated to Iconyx systems to help with spoken word intelligibility, with three more Ic16-R arrays concealed behind a metal grille.

“The Iconyx definitely helped to focus the sound in a very challenging environment,” says Ciair Brothers Project Manager Dustin Goen. “I don’t see how it could have been done with any other kind of loudspeakers.”

Headquartered in Foothill Ranch, California, Renkus-Heinz, Inc. is the worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of audio operations networks, digitally steerable arrays, powered and non-powered loudspeakers, system specific electronics and fully integrated Reference Point Array systems.

 

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
