KUDO System Sings At Lexington Opera House

loh_kudo_flown.jpgLEXINGTON, Kentucky — The Lexington Opera House, which first opened in 1887 and was described by The Kentucky Leader as one of the “costliest, handsomest and most convenient Thespian temples in the South,” has certainly seen its share of amazing performances over the years. Al Jolson, John Phillip Sousa, W.C. Fields, Harry Houdini, Will Rogers, Mae West and the Marx Brothers have all graced its stage, not to mention countless theatrical and musical productions

With the advent of motion pictures, the opera house gradually fell into disrepair; however, the facility was eventually purchased by the city and spared the wrecking ball thanks to a full renovation and restoration effort in 1976. Now, more than three decades later, the opulent 944-seat venue has once again been “freshened up” with some much needed updates, the most notable being the addition of a new L-ACOUSTICS KUDO line source array system. more

VMP Announces “Forever Warranty? for Entire Product Line

Video Mount Products (VMP)STEVENSVILLE, Md., March 26, 2009 — Video Mount Products (videomount.com), a leading provider of mounting solutions for the residential, commercial, CI, pro, and security audio/video markets, is proud to announce it now offers a “Forever Warranty? for its entire product line.

“The ‘lifetime’ warranties offered by many mount accessory manufacturers have become convoluted,? explained Keith Fulmer, president of Video Mount Products. “What exactly does ‘lifetime’ mean? Each manufacturer may have a different definition. The life of the product it is mounting? The owner’s life? Putting a lifespan, such as 10 years, on their accessory, and after that period of time it is no longer under warranty? Quite simply, we have so much confidence in each and every one of VMP’ products, we have warrantied the entire line beyond anyone’s or anything’s ‘lifetime’…and we are not putting a lifespan on any one of our products.? more

Audio Company Exorcises Floor Exercise Demons

Question: What do a gymnastics meet, a youth fitness center, and a multi-ring circus have in common?

Answer: All three feature non-stop action going on all over the place at the same time.

While that can be visually exciting, it can also be highly disconcerting, especially when music is a key ingredient in one area, but a distraction in others. Additionally, each of these three events generally takes place in view of a large number of people, making some type of a PA system a must.

Until recently, Studio West Gymnastics in Torrance, CA was confronted with two such predicaments. more

-Eight of the versatile compact JFL210 enclosures give leading New England audio/video/lighting/staging services provider a scalable solution for a range of applications-

Whitinsville, MA, USA – March 24, 2009 – Boston area-based massAV knows corporate A/V, lighting and staging, with a client list that includes events for Chevrolet, the New England Patriots, presidential candidate Senator John McCain and the Massachusetts Innovation & Technology Exchange (MITX). In business since 1975, massAV stays on the cutting edge of event technology, so it was not surprising to find Steve Shepard, massAV’s Chief Engineer, attending SMAART training at EAW’s headquarters in Whitinsville, Massachusetts, late last year. During a break in the seminar, he noticed music wafting in from down the hallway and he followed his ears to the source: EAW’s famous “The Pit? product testing lab, where the EAW engineering team was tuning a brand new loudspeaker enclosure. It was Shepard’s first encounter with EAW’s recently introduced JFL210 Compact Line Array Loudspeaker, and it was love at first listen. more
