ASHLY’S PEMA COMBO DSP/AMP IMPROVES THE LOFTY ATMOSPHERE AT CALIFORNIA COUNTRY CLUB

buttecreek_exterior.JPGCHICO, CALIFORNIA – JUNE 2012: Nestled amid meticulously manicured grounds, the stately clubhouse of Butte Creek Country Club (BCCC) in Chico, California is – in addition to the ideal place to relax after a round of golf – a fabulous setting for weddings, fundraisers, and other events. However, until local integration firm Tolar AVL installed a sophisticated Ashly Pema 8250.70 Protea(tm) DSP Matrix Amplifier with Ashly neWR-5 remote wall panels, the clubhouse’s single-source sound reinforcement system was a source of frustration for BCCC management and staff.

“BCCC operates a very high-end facility, and required a sound system to match,” said Chuck Mahar, sales director and project manager with Tolar AVL. “The previous system included a large rack of amplifiers stacked with 70-volt transformers. There was a complete lack of DSP or equalization that meant that the entire clubhouse had to commit to the more

Draper Screen Tensioning Improvements Get “Most Innovative Screen” Award at InfoComm

(Spiceland, Ind.)– Draper, Inc., has been recognized for the company’s efforts to improve tensioning for motorized projection screens. Draper’s tab-tensioning system improvement was named “Most Innovative Projection Screen” in the 2012 Systems Contractor News InfoComm Installation Product Awards.

Every Draper tab tensioned screen surface (including the tabs) is CNC cut as a single piece, and the tabs are then folded and RF welded. The result is a much stronger tab with no possibility of separation.

Draper's new tab-tensioning system.

“Making a tab tensioned surface in this manner eliminates the puckering that has characterized the edges of tab tensioned screens made by Draper and other manufacturers for years,” according to Draper, Inc. President John Pidgeon in a letter announcing the improvement to Draper dealers. “Prior to making this decision, we cycled a tab tensioned screen made in this manner over 30,000 times with no tab failure.”

With the change comes an upgraded warranty. Draper now warrants all its tab tensioned screens against tab separation for five years from date of manufacture.
