Greenlight Introduces New Pricing For Popular Control System Monitoring Service

greenlight pricing

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – March 2015 – Greenlight Control LLC, developer of the popular cloud based service Greenlight, announced a price reduction per system to just $10 per month.  The new price, down from a launch price of $249 per year, makes an outstanding value even better.

 

“For anyone who was on the fence about implementing Greenlight service, this is a huge motivation to start doing so now,” said Greenlight CEO Steve Hosterman. “We are giving dealers every incentive to improve their service departments, from an amazing new price to one-on-one assistance while getting started.”

 

Greenlight has the strongest offering of any control system monitoring service, and is the only product that allows dealers to track AMX, Crestron, and RTI systems all from one web based interface. Greenlight drastically reduces costly onsite service calls by giving the dealer all of the tools necessary to remotely monitor, troubleshoot and repair client systems from anywhere in the world.

 

“Dealers across the country and around the world rely on Greenlight to keep their customers happy,” said Hosterman. “We listened to dealers who told us they wanted a flat monthly price.  Now rolling Greenlight into a service contract is a no-brainer.”

 

In addition to the new price, dealers have discrete control over which systems get charged for monitoring.  If a customer decides to not renew a service contract, the dealer can simply “un-license” that system and no longer pay for Greenlight service.  Dealers only pay for exactly what they need.

Blackburn College Revamps Auditorium with Danley Sound Labs Loudspeakers and Subwoofers

BlackburnCollege_AuditoriumCARLINVILLE, ILLINOIS: Located in the rural Illinois town of Carlinville, Blackburn College serves six hundred undergraduates. Its unique work program keeps costs low and campus community involvement high by employing students in a range of non-traditional student jobs under the direction of professionals, for nine of the campus’s sixteen buildings. A recent $3 million upgrade to the 430-seat Bothwell Auditorium continued that tradition, with the student construction crew providing much of the labor. Amid a range of new infrastructure is a new sound reinforcement system centered on Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers and subwoofers, which provide exceptional fidelity and pattern control.

“The old system was original to the building, which was constructed in the 1970s,” explained Ryan Winstead, sales design consultant with Advanced Audio and Lighting Systems (AALS) of Peoria, Illinois. “Their tech staff had a hard time making things sound good, and they had an especially hard time keeping stage mics from feeding back during theater productions. Part of our upgrade included a new Yamaha QL5-65 console, which scales functionality to the expertise of the operator. Accommodating different proficiencies was an important part of the upgrade.”

BlackburnCollege_SpeakerCloseup“Giving them much better pattern control was critical to the success of this installation, both in terms of keeping on-stage volume low and in terms of minimizing side and back wall-reflections to maintain fidelity and intelligibility,” said Winstead. “They also wanted stereo coverage, which would be useful for musical and theatrical performances and essential for movie presentations. Based on past experience, I knew Danley Sound Labs loudspeakers would give us the pattern control we needed with fidelity that would more than measure up to their expectations. I also knew that Danley subwoofers would provide excellent low-end support.”

To each sidewall, Winstead and his crew attached matching clusters composed of a Danley SH-46 at the top for principle coverage, a Danley SM-60 for downfill, and a Danley TH-115 subwoofer. Powersoft Duecanali 5204 amplifiers with integrated AESOP DSP provide power and modest processing for the system. The fact that all of the Danley boxes use passive crossovers minimized the number of necessary amplifier channels, which helped keep the project on budget.

In addition, AALS gave Bothwell Auditorium two Danley SM-100 low-profile loudspeakers for use as stage monitors, with plans for two more as funding permits. A Powersoft M50Q provides the necessary power. “Again, Danley’s well-known pattern control makes the SM-100 an excellent stage monitor,” said Winstead. “That, and its low profile. It has an inspiring sound and it doesn’t take up a lot of visual real estate.”

Blackburn College will celebrate the completion of Bothwell Auditorium’s renovation with a performance of Jim Beaver’s play Verdigris.

Ashly Saves the Day at Rocky Mountain Classical Academy

RockyMountain_ClassicalAcademyCOLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO – FEBRUARY 2015: Founded in 2005, the Rocky Mountain Classical Academy is a successful K-8 charter school in Colorado’s second-largest city, Colorado Springs. However, RMCA was split between two locations until the recent completion of a $17 million, 100,000 square-foot building to house all of its 1,000 students, with additional room to grow school enrollment by 33%. The building is community-oriented, featuring lots of open areas and gathering spaces with an abundance of natural light. Among them are an adjacent gymnasium and auditorium. With a clever arrangement of movable partitions, the two facilities share a stage that can be used for a wide range of events. When unforeseen budgetary issues threatening the audio/video systems in both rooms, the school district hired local A/V integration firm Sight & Sound Technologies to engineer a fix that would preserve the hoped-for functionality and reliability at a more affordable price. Sight & Sound swapped out the original design’s pricey processors and amplifiers for Ashly Audio’s affordable, network-ready DSP and nX Series amplifiers.

“As sometimes happens, the new building ran into extra expenses that they hadn’t planned for,” said Kris Johnson, COO with Sight & Sound Technologies. “They brought us in, and we got as close to the original system’s functionality as we could while still passing on a savings that amounted to hundreds of thousands of dollars. A significant component of that was moving to Ashly processing and amplification, which offers tremendous value in performance and reliability at a much more affordable cost. Importantly, all of the Ashly equipment that we installed is network-ready, so we can dial into the system from our offices to make any adjustments that the school requests.” In addition to the two sound reinforcement systems, Sight & Sound installed a Martin Professional PC-based control system with Chauvet Ovation series fixtures-based lighting system and a Panasonic HD projector/Draper motorized screen-based video system.

To handle the huge range of functions anticipated in the original design, Johnson installed an Ashly ne24.24M Protea™ digital matrix processor that, with the help of a Crestron control system, allows users to select preset scenarios and make adjustments to individual input channels. An Ashly ne4800 4-in x 8-out Protea DSP System Processor handles loudspeaker conditioning for the auditorium side, and an Ashly 3.6SP 3×6 DSP processor handles loudspeaker conditioning for the gymnasium side. A collection of five Ashly NE and nXe-Series network amplifiers, including an ne8250 8-channel 250W amp, an nXe4002 2-channel network 400W amp, two nXe8002s 2-channel network 800W amps, and an nXe1.52 2-channel 1,500W network amp, power the system. Tannoy VX12Q mains with six Tannoy VX6 fills cover the gymnasium, whereas Fulcrum DX1595 mains with US212 subwoofers cover the auditorium. Inputs to the system include a Behringer x32 console on a digital snake and an assortment of wired and wireless microphones. For simple events, the Crestron control system handles everything, so a tech is not needed.

“Ashly has been my go-to processor and amplifier manufacturer for years,” said Johnson. “I always know exactly what I’m going to get, and I love the programming interface. At RMCA, we did all of our programming ahead of time at the office, which made for a smooth installation. Ashly’s sound quality is excellent; it’s always clean and quiet. In fact, I don’t even think to worry about that anymore! The Ashly Protea processing is flexible enough that we were able to give the school all of the functionality they had hoped for in the original design. Ashly’s reliability has always been bulletproof, so I know we won’t be going back to deal with flakey gear.”

He continued, “Several school officials, including the president of the board, have to come to us to say how amazing the system is and how pleased they are that we made it work with their restricted budget. Before we came in, there was talk of cutting the A/V system entirely! It’s quite a turn-around.”

ABOUT ASHLY AUDIO Ashly Audio Inc. is recognized as a world leader in the design and manufacturing of high quality & high performance signal processing equipment and power amplification for use in the commercial sound contracting and professional audio markets.

About Torus Power

Toroidal isolation power conditioners by Torus Power are the world’s finest clean power source for audio, video, and control systems. Dramatically increasing performance levels of connected AV components from video displays to speakers, Torus Power Conditioners utilize Plitron Manufacturing’s patented NBT technologies and toroidal isolation transformers to eliminate virtually all power-line noise artifacts and protect equipment from potentially damaging AC power line events, while increasing system reliability and extending product life, by establishing clean incoming power from which connected components can draw upon and use. Thereby providing high levels of clean, instantaneous current, Torus Power products ensure that dynamic components—such as high performance amplifiers—are never starved for power.

 

Plitron Manufacturing precision-engineered products are a sought-after supplier of toroidal transformers and toroidal-based products for leading AV amplifier brands—as well as medical, broadcast, telecommunications, computer, power conditioning, UPS, energy, and more. Torus Power is manufactured to rigorous standards under Plitron’s ISO 9001 medical-level quality-control system in Toronto, Canada.
