EAW Loudspeakers Selected for Philadelphia Eagles’ Lincoln Financial Field

Eagles1Whitinsville, MA, USA, November 17, 2009 – Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Philadelphia Eagles, recently enhanced its sound system with custom loudspeakers from EAW, a world leader in audio system solutions. The stadium opened its doors in 2003 and has since hosted a number of notable sporting events. Eagles fans are notoriously passionate, and an upgrade to its P.A. system was needed to effectively match and cut through their volume. A/V consulting firm Coffeen Fricke and Associates, Inc. developed a complex specification for the stadium’s system, and after considering several manufacturers, EAW was chosen, as they could provide that solution and manufacture the product to exacting specifications to meet the installation deadline. The sale was made by Columbia, Maryland-based Audio Associates, and the installation was handled by the Columbia-based Large Projects Group of the A/V integration company AVI-SPL (headquartered in Tampa, Florida). more

John Casali Uses B-Format ST350 Microphone On Robert Downey, Jnr’s Sherlock Holmes

The end of 2009 is currently the planned release date for the latest filmed addition to the Sherlock Holmes canon, starring Robert Downey Jnr and Jude Law in an almost irreverent take on the story of Baker Street’s most famous detective. Downey Jnr’s clumsy, tousle-headed, slightly risqué version of Holmes is far removed from the calculating, ice-cool character portrayed by the likes of Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett in the past, and yet somehow, it all works brilliantly. more
