SYMNET EDGE INSTALLED IN PRIVATE SCHOOL

trinityschool_edge.JPGAUSTIN, TEXAS – JUNE 2012: Trinity Episcopal School of Austin has already grown from a startup private school to a K-8 institution of 450 students. Its exponential increase has spurred a succession of construction projects, the latest of which is a 750-seat multipurpose chapel for religious services, student performances, and community events. Trinity Episcopal School of Austin hired central-Texas-based Ace Audio Communications, Inc. to design and install a state-of-the-art audio/visual system for the new chapel. Ace Audio centered its sound reinforcement on an Allen & Heath iLive console paired with Symetrix SymNet Edge DSP. The two units are networked together using the next-generation Dante network protocol, which supports a huge channel count of lossless audio with imperceptible latency.

To maximize the new chapel’s flexibility without compromising its functionality, the school opted to build two stages, one along the width of the room and more

dB AUDIO & VIDEO OUTFITS NEW SANCTUARY AT PLEASANT HILL BAPTIST CHURCH WITH DANLEY SPEAKERS

pleasant_hill_church.JPGLAWRENCEVILLE, GEORGIA: Blessed with the burden of a burgeoning congregation that was filling its small sanctuary beyond capacity, Pleasant Hill Baptist Church in Lawrenceville, Georgia raised funds to build a new, 500-seat sanctuary adjacent to its old one. The roots of PHBC reach back 135 years, and the latest expansion represents a significant milestone in that long history. The church hired Gainesville-based dB Audio & Video to design and install a video projection system and a high-fidelity, high-output sound reinforcement system to support its spirited services. To meet that objective, dB Audio & Video specified Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers and subwoofers.

“High-energy contemporary gospel music with a full band sets the tone for the two Sunday services at Pleasant Hill,” explained Ronnie Stanford, systems advisor with dB Audio & Video. “The church was clear in its desire for a sound system that is more

ASHLY PROCESSORS AND AMPS A DYNAMIC DUO AT TWIN PEAKS RESTAURANT

twin_peaks_exterior.JPGSCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA: Owing to a successful recipe of “man food,” sports and sexy young waitresses, Twin Peaks Restaurant is one of the nation’s fastest growing chains. Part of its brand concept is to build “the perfect man cave,” which includes high-fidelity sound reinforcement to complement a profusion of screens. Clean Media AV recently helped complete a Twin Peaks Restaurant in its hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona. To meet the restaurant’s demanding A/V requirements with an utterly reliable, yet still cost effective system, Clean Media AV designed the system around Ashly Audio network-ready processors and amplifiers.

The new Twin Peaks Restaurant occupies 7,500 square feet, which Clean Media AV subdivided into multiple zones so that volumes and input sources could be finely controlled. Nearly seventy high-definition televisions dot the ceiling and walls, guaranteeing that patrons are well positioned to take in multiple games and events more

A HARBINGER OF THINGS TO COME!ONE DANLEY JERICO HORN COVERS AN ENTIRE HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL FIELD

newnan_highschool_jh90.JPGNEWNAN, GEORGIA: In many ways, Newnan High School is a unique place that delivers an award-winning education through the collective dedication and hard work of its individual teachers and students. However, Newnan HS also has a lot in common with other high schools in the area and around the country – a vigorous athletics program that raises school spirit among students and helps to bond neighbors in the larger Newnan community. Recently, the school overhauled its 4,300-seat Drake Stadium, expanding it to accommodate 6,000 fans and replacing its dated sound reinforcement system. Rather than concede to the trade-offs and limitations inherent in traditional stadium reinforcement designs, Newnan opted to install a single Danley Sound Labs Jericho Horn JH-90, which delivers point-source, full-frequency coverage for the entire stadium at a total system cost that was fiercely competitive.

The old system had relied on a distribution of limited fidelity horns. Their multiple sources, combined with echoes, led to what any sound professional would recognize as a serious intelligibility problem. However, because it was like the thousands of sound systems that fill high school stadiums across the nation, most Newnan fans simply shook their heads, acquiesced to garbled announcements, and wrote it off as “typical stadium sound.” With the renovation of Drake Stadium’s seating and press box, the school jumped at the chance to update the sound reinforcement system. While school officials certainly expected some improvement, they did not anticipate just how dramatic that improvement would be.

“They knew that they wanted the new sound reinforcement system located out by the scoreboard just beyond one of the end zones,” said LaDon Findley, principal and chief sound designer at Performa Technologies, the Millbrook, Alabama-based company that installed the new sound reinforcement system for Newnan HS. “The dilemma is that when it gets that far away, there can be a serious reduction in sound pressure level as the signal moves forward in time and space. Southern A&E of Austell, Georgia designed the system to include one Danley Jericho Horn JH-90, which was expressly designed to excel in such situations. Due to some remarkable physics, the JH-90 delivers full-frequency, phase-coherent audio from a single point source with tremendous power.”

Performa Technologies worked with StressCrete to design a custom pole on which to mount the 700-plus pound JH-90 that would safely take it up and over the scoreboard. One DSLP48 processor, four Danley 6.5k amplifiers and one Danley 3.3k amplifier power the massive loudspeaker. Because the distance between the loudspeaker and the control booth is so great, Performa Technologies put evolved and now-cost effective wireless technology to use. A Listen Technologies line-level wireless transmitter conveys signal from the control booth to the equipment rack.

“With just one Danley Jericho Horn JH-90, Newnan High School has received a tremendous upgrade in terms of coverage and intelligibility,” said Jereme Harris, operation manager at Performa Technologies and the person responsible for the installation. “To call the difference between the old system and the new system ‘night and day’ doesn’t even begin to describe it.”

ABOUT DANLEY SOUND LABS Danley Sound Labs is the exclusive home of Tom Danley, one of the most innovative loudspeaker designers in the industry today and recognized worldwide as a pioneer for “outside the box” thinking in professional audio technology.

SYMETRIX JUPITER AND ARC-WEB PERFORM AT THE COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION

cma_lobby.JPGNASHVILLE, TENNESSEE: Although the Country Music Association is perhaps best known for its annual CMA Awards show, the organization is constantly working to support and promote country music. The CMA’s headquarters in Nashville is a hive of activity and is frequently visited by the genre’s biggest stars and its most promising freshmen. Recently, the CMA decided to convert its atrium into a small-scale performance venue for intimate concerts, parties, and meetings. Morris Light & Sound of Nashville installed its sound reinforcement system, relying on the Symetrix Jupiter 8 processor paired with the Symetrix ARC-WEB Internet-based interface to provide system conditioning and intuitive user control that is accessible from the staffs’ smartphones.

“The idea was that, say, Garth Brooks or some other big name could stop by the CMA and play a small acoustic set as a ‘thank you’ to the staff,” explained John more
