Kelley Technologies helped transform the Azure swimming pool at the Palazzo Hotel in Las Vegas into an outdoor “day club? with a JBL loudspeaker system.

NORTHRIDGE, California – The Palazzo Hotel, located on Las Vegas Boulevard, wanted to create a dance club environment by transforming its luxurious Azure swimming pool into an outdoor “day club.? To help accomplish this feat, Kelley Technologies of Las Vegas installed a high-end audio system featuring HARMAN’s JBL loudspeakers.

“JBL loudspeakers were chosen for this project thanks to their frequency response, power handling, and—most important for an outdoor club—weatherproofing. Since the existing infrastructure already used BSS products, it made sense to stick with them as well as Crown due to its built-in DSP with power handling,? said Art Martinez, Sales Manager at Kelley Technologies.

As FOH Engineer Jason Moore explains when asked about the criteria for the PA, “We were looking for the best possible sound we could get in a small, powerful package that would allow us to find a happy medium between amphitheaters, theaters and arenas.?

Production Manager Javier Alcaraz says that, “Delicate Productions, one of the companies competing to provide audio for the tour, had asked me to listen to the Martin Audio MLA system. So I went to a demo in North Carolina where I listened to MLA and was floored. I called Jason and told him, ‘I think this is the rig for you, where we are, and more

André Siebenaler, Chief Production Engineer for RTL

KIRCHBERG, Luxembourg — There were only smiling faces to be seen at Radio Télévision Luxembourg (RTL) when on July 28, Studer’s new Vista 9 digital console was used for the first time in the live production of the 7 o’clock news.

Only three days earlier, the former console had been removed and connections routed to a spare desk. At that moment, the engineering team from specialist installation company, BCE, zipped into action. BCE carried out a well-prepared operation to reconnect everything and network to the video embedders/de-embedders, the new digital lines and the monitoring in several rooms.

At the same time, Studer support engineer Rudolf Boltshauser was carrying out the programming and testing of the console, the labeling and the I/O.
