AVI-SPL Signs on to SystemsPlus™ Stop Loss

AVI-SPL, the largest global integrator of audiovisual systems and services, has announced it will join NSCA’s industry-specific insurance solution, SystemsPlus™ Stop Loss, which is part of the Health Solutions program.

The healthcare debate in Washington, D.C., has caused both small and large businesses to reevaluate their current providers and the best options for employee benefits, ease of administration and, most important, cost.

The Stop-Loss program is of great importance to a company like AVI-SPL because it allows both small and large businesses to take advantage of large-group discounts and lower rates. Larger groups have a lower percentage of their premium dollars committed to stop loss insurance. The program combines each individual group into one large group, thus maximizing cost efficiency and making more premium dollars available for claims and potential premium credits.

“I was impressed with the program that SystemsPlus offered to AVI-SPL and more

Remote Recording uses Fairlight’s New Xynergi to Record and Edit the 2009 Latin Grammys

xynergi-workstation-w_sidecarsmall.jpg

Karen Brinton, President of Remote Recording, and her audio recording team chose Fairlight’s Xynergi to record the 2009 Latin Grammys, which took place in Las Vegas in November at Mandalay Bay.

Peter Gary, Engineer in Charge, became interested in the Xynergi after he was introduced to the system by New York-based Dale Pro Audio, which is Fairight’s exclusive dealer for northeast USA.

Gary explains: “The flexibility of the Xynergi system is really incredible. We were able to record 128 channels along with HD/SDI video for hours on end with absolutely no issues. While in record, the system was also able to backup the previous sound check (all 128 tracks plus video) onto an external hard drive. This negates any transfer time after the show, saving the clients money and having the media ready to post on any DAW system immediately.?

Chief Helps Make AV the Center of Attention at The Vue

The Vue Game Room Screens

AV helps every space find its place at The Vue

MEMPHIS, TN—If there’s one especially defining aspect of The Vue, a newly-opened student center here on the east side of Tennessee’s celebrated river city, it’s that it refuses to be classified one way or another. It’s a concert venue. Viewed from another perspective, a study lounge, place to see movies…or conference room. Let’s not forget that you can get lost in the extensive game room either, drink your favorite hot beverage in the coffee shop, or simply pull up a big, comfortable upholstered chair and join a real, face-to-face conversation with others.

Yes, for those bent on forcing a single definition on The Vue, perhaps it’s best said that the 10,000 square-foot, multilevel facility takes aim at more

Mankin Media Systems meets upholding AV challenge at Louisville youth center

LOUISVILLE, KY—It may very well be true sometimes that the more things change they stay the same, but don’t count on it at Southeast Christian Church, a house of worship standing here at the gateway to the South that leaves decidedly new footsteps for all others to follow with the opening of its new youth center.

Called The Block, the 75,000 square-foot facility represents a vast departure from neighborhood rec centers and teen hangouts of the past, opting instead to create a positive environment for young people to congregate offering dedicated space for learning, socializing, concerts, gaming, and a lot more. Even outfitted with its own rock wall more

DANLEY STEPS UP TO THE PLATE AT TURNER FIELD

ATLANTA, GEORGIA: Poised for a future playoff berth with a hopeful mixture of youth and experience, the Atlanta Braves finished the 2009 season with a respectable record and much to look forward to. But for Turner Field, built originally for the 1996 Olympics and the club’s home ever since, 2009 marked the transition from possession of a dated sound system to possession of arguably the best system in major league baseball. Assailed by the elements, the old loudspeakers were showing signs of age, replaced by over four-hundred Danley loudspeakers with full weatherproofing, as well as customized rigging and coverage patterns to fit perfectly in the old speakers’ places. Not only did Danley deliver extensive customization, it did so within an extremely short timeframe.

The original equipment had been in place for thirteen years and the loudspeakers were beginning to deteriorate. The Braves more
