2007 CEDIA Electronic Lifestyles Awards Entry:
Best Media Room

Our project was part of an interior renovation. We selected a 65in. plasma, ceiling-mounted LCR and surround loudspeakers, and an in-cabinet subwoofer based on the architectural constraints of the room. We have had excellent results with this loudspeaker setup in previous installations as dialogue is perceived to be coming from the screen with the benefit of eliminating any clutter on the display wall. more

JBL Professional Loudspeakers Perform Swimmingly For 2008 Summer Olympics At National Aquatic Centre In Beijing

Anyone who has ever witnessed or participated in an indoor swimming competition knows that acoustics play a significant part in the experience. Too reverberant and announcements become unintelligible; too sterile and the excitement and sense of place is diminished. JBL Professional Precision Directivity™ (PD) Series and Application Engineered™ (AE) Series loudspeakers are on the job at the 2008 Olympic Summer Games in the National Aquatic Centre in Beijing, to make certain that the sound will be exactly what it needs to be for the array of Olympic games taking place there August 8-24 this summer. more

ONCE YOU USE DANLEY YOU’LL NEVER GO BACK

ga_public_brdcast_1.JPGATLANTA, GEORGIA – AUGUST 2008: Despite the cliché of programs burdened by stodgy talking heads droning on about highfalutin subjects, the bulk of programs aired by PBS use engaging, colorful formats to educate and entertain about compelling subjects. Nevertheless, no previous program has approached the raw and visceral intensity of PBS’s ten part miniseries, “Carrier.” A documentary of life aboard the USS Nimitz, a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, the show balances the real life struggles and triumphs of the 5000-plus sailors who spend their every moment on the ship with enough roaring take-offs and high technology to have viewers with bona fide home theaters rumbling in their seats! As “Carrier” is the very first program produced by PBS in 5.1 surround sound, Georgia Public Broadcasting (GPB) revamped their soundstage with a full complement of musically accurate and high SPL Danley loudspeakers and subwoofers. This improved soundstage was used to preview the first two episodes of “Carrier” for the show’s producers, the upper management at PBS, and the station’s highest-tier donors. more

ATC LOUDSPEAKERS MAKE 251 MUSIC

brett_cookingham.jpgLOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – AUGUST 2008: Brett Cookingham and Matt Pavolaitis, founders, owners, and operators of 251 Music, are remarkably busy. In only a few short years, they have placed over 3,000 pieces of original, high-quality music, of every conceivable genre, on network television. On one day, they may be writing and recording a country tune and the next a blazing loud rock anthem, with some folk or jazz in the evening to break things up! They wear the many hats of producer, recording engineer, composer, musician, mix engineer, and mastering engineer – often simultaneously. Ardently opposed to using pre-recorded loops or samples, Cookingham and Pavolaitis record everything themselves in their well-appointed live room/control room/mastering suite. They recently received a significant leg up in that process with a pair of “relentlessly truthful” ATC SCM50ASL powered reference monitors. more
