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

gdynia_stadium.JPG

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 The old stadium, which occupied the same site, sat only a few thousand fans and had an outdated feel, amplified (ironic pun intended) by a grossly underperforming sound system.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

BUENA PARK, Calif.—New York University’s Jack H. Skirball Center for the Performing Arts is the premier venue for the presentation of cultural and performing arts events for all of NYU and lower Manhattan. Since opening in 2003, the 860-seat Skirball Center has been an educational and community building resource, providing NYU’s first large-scale, professional performance space on campus.

Recently the Skirball Center replaced its older analog front of house console with a Yamaha PM5D digital audio console purchased from Scharff Weisberg. “About once a month a client would have to rent a digital board, and it was almost always a Yamaha PM5D,? states Ethan Bade, head audio engineer. “Our purchasing decision was made pretty clear after speaking with engineers who had brought in various consoles in the past, that a 5D would eliminate additional rental costs and save on set up time.?

SYMETRIX ARC-WEB TECHNOLOGY ALLOWS THE SOUND SYSTEM AT ST. JOAN OF ARC’S CATHOLIC CHURCH TO BE CONTROLLED FROM THE PULPIT ON AN ANDROID

st_joan_arc_church.JPG

BLYTHE, CALIFORNIA – AUGUST 2011: Just paces from the Arizona border in Blythe, California, St. Joan of Arc is not your average Catholic church. Father Henri Licznerski stays ahead of the technological curve, as evidenced by the church’s video system with three screens, several pan/tilt/zoom remote control cameras, and a digital video recording system. The recent addition of several hot condenser mics for the choir with accompanying monitors left the church exposed to a substantial feedback risk, and its multiple mixer locations invited busy fingers – however well-intentioned – to really mess things up. Licznerski called on San Bernardino’s Enko Systems, Inc. to provide a solution. In keeping with St. Joan of Arc’s embrace of technology, Enko’s Dave Chitty installed two Symetrix Jupiter 12 app-based processors and provided control from Licznerski’s Android smartphone via Symetrix’ ground-breaking ARC-WEB technology.

“They previously had no auto mixing at all,” said Chitty. “And more
