SEATTLE, WASHINGTON – SEPTEMBER 2011: Symetrix announces the release of the Zone Mix 761, which adds ARC-WEB compatibility to the powerful feature set formerly found in the predecessor Zone Mix 760, one of the company’s most popular products. ARC-WEB allows integrators to build customized interfaces that operate on users’ smartphones or Internet-connected computers. In addition to ARC-WEB compatibility, the Zone Mix 761 shines with a modernized aesthetic similar to that of Symetrix Jupiter series and includes a new collection of logic outputs on the rear panel.

“The Zone Mix 761 steps into the shoes of the 760, which has been among our most popular products,” said Trent Wagner, senior product manager at Symetrix. “With twelve inputs and six outputs, it excels at three of the most commonly-required functions in small- to mid-sized installations: paging with automatic ducking; flexible routing and mixing; and comprehensive processing at the input and the more

SYMETRIX AUTOMIX MATRIX 780 THE BRAINS OF MIAMI COUNTRY DAY SCHOOL’S NEW AMPHITHEATER

MIAMI, FLORIDA – SEPTEMBER 2011: Located just north of its namesake city in Florida, Miami Country Day School (MCDS) is a private, non-denominational institution that serves 1,100 students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. With a deep history and a proven record of providing first-rate educations for its students, the prestigious institution attracts the children of Miami’s performing arts and music celebrities, among others. As a result, the performing arts and music departments have an unusually high bar to meet, a fact that influenced decisions surrounding a recently completed multipurpose amphitheater in the school’s quadrangle. To ensure stunning audio performance and the flexibility to handle both simple and involved productions for a few dozen or up to seven-hundred audience members, a Symetrix Automix Matrix 780 processor serves as the brains for the new amphitheater’s audio system.

Initially, MCDS could only find sound more

FROM SONIC MUD TO SONIC GOLD DANLEY GENESIS HORNS INSTALLED IN WASILLA SPORTS CENTER

WASILLA, ALASKA – SEPTEMBER 2011: At just over 100,000 square feet, the largest public space in the city of Wasilla, Alaska is the Curtis D. Menard Memorial Sports Center. It is capable of handling 5,000 visitors, which is a common occurrence at graduations, rallies, and, of course, hockey & indoor football contests. It opened in 2004, but its original sound reinforcement system was so ineffective that the facility had to rent a sound system for every event of consequence. Even then, intelligibility was marginal. The facility recently upgraded to Danley loudspeakers and subwoofers, which, by virtue of their exceptionally well-defined pattern control, minimize the reflections that had doomed all previous solutions to deliver crisp, intelligible sound.

“The original system consisted of four mid-grade horns in the middle of the room supplemented by a collection of 70-volt ceiling speakers,” explained Phil Ballard, principal of Sound Decisions, the firm that designed more

ASHLY AMPLIFIERS AND SYMETRIX PROCESSING OUTPERFORM THE COMPETITION AT POLAND’S GDYNIA MUNICIPAL FOOTBALL STADIUM

GDYNIA, POLAND – SEPTEMBER 2011: Located in the port city of Gdynia, Poland, the brand new Gdynia Municipal football stadium is home to Arka Gdynia, the city’s legendary football (Americans: read “soccer”) club. The new stadium is a source of civic pride, seating 15,000 in an environment of cheery colors, inviting architecture and modern conveniences. The old stadium, which occupied the same site, sat only a few thousand fans and had an outdated feel, amplified (ironic pun intended) by a grossly underperforming sound system. To complement the refreshing visual aesthetic, a brand new aural aesthetic wraps Gdynia Municipal Football stadium in clear, articulate sound. D.A.S. loudspeakers receive abundant, high-fidelity power from Ashly network-enabled amplifiers, which in turn receive a perfectly processed signal from Symetrix SymNet DSPs.

Piotr Nowinski, systems engineer at Sopot, Mega Music’s Poland-based audio/visual installation division, led the charge at Gdynia. “Another company executed the design for more
