DOWNLOAD SYMETRIX SYMNET COMPOSER TODAY

symnet_composer.JPGSEATTLE, WASHINGTON – MAY 2012: Symetrix announces the release of SymNet Composer DSP configuration software. SymNet Composer is a major leap forward for installed sound DSP configuration software.

When performing basic Edge hardware configuration, Composer automatically identifies the type of audio I/O module installed in each of the Edge frames’ four I/O card slots (up to 16 channels of local audio). When connecting multiple Edge frames via Dante gigabit network audio (up to 128 channels total), quick and easy network management is accomplished entirely within the SymNet Composer programming environment. A fully open architecture application, Composer’s fast and fluid navigation accelerates the audio path design process. System designers exercise complete creative control selecting from a library of over 600 proven DSP processing, routing, mixing, and special purpose modules. A designer’s proprietary Super-modules (complex blocks of multiple DSP modules and routings) can be exported more

Imerge Launches Ultra Compact Playback Unit – Experience the Mini Client

Imerge, the internationally acclaimed provider of multi-room audio and video entertainment solutions, has launched a new High Definition Mini Client playback device that is ideally suited to installations where space is at a premium.

This powerful, compact unit works in conjunction with the new Imerge MS1-3D range of media servers to offer local playback of DVDs as well as music and 2D HD movies, including full HD audio.

Weighing just 450g and smaller than two DVD cases, the Imerge Mini Client is supplied with VESA 75/100 mounts so that it can be mounted or hidden behind a TV screen without being obtrusive or detracting from the room décor. On a Super yacht with many cabins, for example, customers can archive and store all of their music and movies on the main MS1-3D server, yet still provide playback to each zone individually and with no compromise in sound or picture quality.

Each Mini Client installed connects to the main MS1-3D server, which can be housed in an equipment room, using GB Ethernet, thus doing away with costly and unsightly wiring. As well as delivering 2D HD playback via the Mini Client, the main server can also store and play DVDs as well as 2D and 3D Blu-ray movies in full 1080p High Definition quality to larger screens and movie theatres. Should other additional 3D zones be required, more MS1-3D clients can be added into the system, thus also providing more local archiving.

Graham Boswell, Sales Director for Prism Sound, which now owns the Imerge brand, says: “The Mini Client, which was shown as a prototype at ISE 2012, was developed in direct response to installers’ requests for a playback unit that was small enough to be unobtrusive, yet powerful enough to deliver the quality that Imerge customers expect. With very low power consumption and being four times smaller than its nearest competitor, the Mini Client is ideal for situations where space is tight as customers can house the MS1-3D server elsewhere and simply tap into its power and archiving capabilities via Ethernet.”

The introduction of the MS1-3D and Mini Client combination consolidates Imerge’s pioneering work in audio and media servers by offering the market a 4th generation entertainment solution that cements its position as a market leader.

The MS1-3D is a complete media server combining the highest quality playback of music and movies with an extensive range of additional benefits, making it the most compelling high-end media server on the market. The unit includes a multiple language user interface for international customers and an iPhone controller app that puts the user in complete control of the system.

The new MS1-3D integrates fully with the companion XiVaSafe high-reliability redundant disk storage array, which ensures that customers don’t lose media in the unlikely event of a disk failure. The network storage can also be used to store user documents and features RAID-6 technology meaning that up to two disk drives can fail without losing content compared to just the one in competing products – an important consideration when systems are remotely located. Imerge-branded server products are complemented by the XIVA on-line music store and a range of hardware and software accessories.

Imerge
Part of what is popularly known as the “Cambridge Phenomenon”, Imerge is well-qualified to be the leader in its field. A spin-off from Cambridge-based technology consultancy “Scientific Generics”, it developed the world’s first hard drive-based audio server, the SoundServer, back in 1990s. In 2007 Imerge launched a multi-terabyte, 1080p-capable music/movies multi-room server which was hailed for setting new standards in usability and reliability, as well as delivering the very highest standards of audio and video performance. In 2008 Imerge launched the state of the art 1080p-capable MP1000 MediaPlayer which unlocked a breathtaking range of new installation possibilities. In 2008, Imerge changed the rules by introducing the world’s most advanced media server, the MS1, and its associated enterprise grade storage solution, the XiVASafe. Redefining the way we interact with our media, the MS1 has evolved into the MS1-HD, incorporating Blu-ray support, and the revolutionary new XiVA music store.

dB AUDIO AND VIDEO INSTALLS REALISTICALLY-PRICED PANASONIC-BASED HD VIDEO SYSTEM AT LIVING HOPE BAPTIST CHURCH

livinghopechurch_stage.JPGBOWLING GREEN, KENTUCKY – APRIL 2012: Living Hope Baptist Church in Bowling Green, Kentucky is not unlike other mid-sized churches. “Although we had always been happy to embrace new audio and video technologies over the years, the fact that we had fallen behind crept up on us slowly,” said the church’s creative arts pastor, Jon Farmer. In order to stay true to the church’s stated relationship with supporting technologies – “to better connect people with our message,” in Farmer’s words – Living Hope recently undertook a significant overhaul of its video system. Aided by the experts at dB Audio and Video of Gainesville, Georgia, the church now has a full HD presentation and recording system centered on Panasonic cameras, switchers, and projectors. Despite the truly vast improvement in performance, the cost was only a fraction of what it would have been just a few more
