Soundcraft Vi4 Digital Console Provides Freight And Salvage With A Foundation For Musical Success

As a non-profit organization with a mission to foster musical success around Berkeley, California, Freight and Salvage Coffee House has hosted a wide range of musical performances for more than 40 years. When it moved to a new facility at the beginning of the year, it needed a state-of-the-art audio system that had the flexibility to handle anything from rock and roll to soft acoustical shows, which is why the venue opted for the Soundcraft Vi4 digital console.

Located in the heart of Berkeley since 1968, Freight and Salvage had been in the same building since opening its doors. When the decision to move was made at the beginning of the year, it needed to find a building that could provide a large auditorium for concerts, but also contain smaller rooms for its expanding educational program. Freight and Salvage relocated to an old building that was renovated to look more

Daktronics Completes Major Install At Minor League Hockey Arena With JBL AE Series Loudspeakers

Daktronics recently completed an installation at the Allen Event Center in Allen, Texas, using 25 JBL AM4215/95 loudspeakers placed every 30 feet to deliver even sound throughout the bowl seating area. The sound system is powered by Crown CT1200 amplifiers and uses an assortment of Harman products in to reach into the Arena’s bar and lounge area.

One of the largest manufacturers of LED video boards, Daktronics has used JBL loudspeakers for more than 30 years in all different types of installations. For the Allen Event Center, Daktronics was faced with the task of installing a sound system that could be played individually in the bar or lounge area for private parties, but also have the ability to be integrated into the larger system for hockey games and public skating events. Having used JBL loudspeakers such a long period of time, system consultant and installer Doug Dodge was more

Sound Image Deploys Crown I-Tech HD and Studer Vista 5SR For Taylor Swift’s North American Tour

Taking advantage of the power of Crown’s I-Tech HD series amplifiers and flexibility of the Studer Vista 5SR console, California-based Sound Image deployed 80 I-Tech HD amplifiers and a Studer Vista 5SR for use on country music star Taylor Swift’s tour throughout North America.

The 2009 tour, which included 52 concerts, sold out within minutes, prompting a second leg of the tour to be added for 2010. Sound Image’s FOH engineer on the Taylor Swift tour, Russell Fischer, stated, “The goal was to bring Taylor Swift’s brand of country pop music to life, and to get the show’s energy and feeling across to an already excited crowd.?

According to Fischer, Sound Image chose the Vista 5SR for its audio quality and versatile control surface. “The audio quality is the most obvious advantage over other digital consoles,? stated Fischer. “Being able to do six different things on more

Radio-Canada Acadie Takes To The Air With Studer Vista 5

In the first use of a Studer Vista 5 console in a CBC/Radio-Canada facility, Radio-Canada Acadie with main studios located in Moncton, New Brunswick recently purchased a Vista 5 for its television studio. Sold through Solotech Inc., the Vista 5 console features 32 faders in a 42-fader chassis.

When deciding on a console, Radio-Canada Acadie needed one that could operate daily without fail. “The Vista 5 is used seven days a week,? says Maurice Cyr, operations manager for Radio-Canada Acadie. “We have only one studio, one control room and one Vista 5, so the console must be dependable and perform well, day in and day out. If it fails, we can’t go to air since we have no backup or replacement available in our plant. Our operations dictate that we have an audio control board that is trustworthy, and so far the Vista 5 has not let us more

projectiondesign F35

Fredrikstad, Norway, December 14, 2009 –projectiondesign announces its new F35 series DLP® projector, the world’s first featuring Texas Instruments® WQXGA DLP® chip, offering 2,560 x 1,600 pixel resolution.

WQXGA features 78% more pixels than WUXGA resolution (1,920 x 1,200), and offers more than five times the resolution of a standard XGA display. The result is incredibly high pixel-density displays, which require fewer projectors to produce ultra-realistic images, with a sharpness and clarity unmatched by other display solutions designed for the simulation, training, and visualization markets.

“Bringing this new, ultra-high resolution imaging to market will increase efficiencies, reduce installation complexities, and provide a better return on investment for users,? says Anders Løkke, International Marketing & Communications Manager, projectiondesign. “For the same number of channels you now get more pixels, and more
