markus_bozzetti.JPGLAS VEGAS, NEVADA – MARCH 2010: For decades, German sport on television has been associated with one program above all others – Sportschau, the weekend sports roundup produced by West German Broadcasting (Westdeutsche Rundfunk, or WDR) and broadcast on the main German public-service terrestrial channel ARD. As the Winter Olympics opened in Vancouver and German public-service TV channels began their long-planned transition to high-definition broadcasting, the much-loved Sportschau moved to a new timeslot on Saturday nights, and, from February 13, 2010, began transmission in high-definition with 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound. more

AUSTIN, TEXAS – MARCH 2010: Austin’s yellow DOG Studios is home to independent producer and engineer David Percefull, whose vital work with emerging artists and established indie acts has earned him deep respect from both sides of the microphone. The name and spirit of yellow DOG Studios has been with Percefull for fifteen years, originating with Buddy, a wonderful yellow Lab who made himself at home in Percefull’s original project studio in his long-time home of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Now back online in Austin, after the recent purchase of former Five AM Studios, yellow DOG Studios is brimming with mics, pres, outboard processors, and digital & analog recorders of such quantity and quality that reading them off in litany risks stopping the heart of any pro audio gear devotee. more

SUMMIT INTEGRATED SYSTEMS TAKES HISTORIC PATHWAYS CHURCH INTO THE NEW DECADE WITH DANLEY LOUDSPEAKERS

pathways_church.JPG

DENVER, COLORADO – MARCH 2010: Pathways Church in Denver, Colorado is unique in many ways. The church purchased the Temple Event Center, an historic Moorish-style Synagogue built by renowned architect John Humphreys in 1899. Both a local and national historic landmark, the Temple Event Center, as it is still known, overflows with ornate and sublime beauty, including elaborate stained glass windows, intricate woodwork, vaulted ceilings, and gold leaf stenciling. Though no longer functioning, a gigantic 1911 Estey pipe organ provides an impressive backdrop for the nearly 1,000 congregants who can sit comfortably on velvet-upholstered seats.

Given the classic architecture that surrounds Pathways, it may be surprising to learn that the church delivers a decidedly contemporary service, complete with a fully-voiced rock band. In contrast, it will not be surprising to learn that the existing sound system was hardly up to that more

NAPLES, FLORIDA – MARCH 2010: Since its first service way back in 1965 in the Music Room of Naples High School, part of the vision for Moorings Presbyterian Church in Naples, Florida has been to build a beautiful sanctuary to glorify God. It has been a long path, but completion within the decade of a flexible and functional Fellowship Hall and a community-supporting gymnasium and recreation center left that enduring target as the next step to accomplish in Moorings’ strategic vision. The church razed its existing sanctuary, saving the small original chapel from the wrecking ball, and built a new one in its place, wondrously sunlit and capable of seating some 750 congregants. A 49 stop, 63 rank pipe organ serves as its centerpiece, and a full-blown A/V system serves to support spoken word and all manner of classical and contemporary music. An Ashly ne24.24M DSP provides the brains for more
