In a unique fixed installation where high performing sound systems are critical, North Shore Cinemas, a Marcus Theatres® Cinema in Mequon, Wisconsin has chosen Crown I-Tech HD amplifiers to power its UltraScreen® theaters. The theater is the first to deploy I-Tech HD to power its audio systems.

Mark Collins, Director of Projection Technology for Marcus Theatres, explained the decision to go with I-Tech HD’s for this environment was a logical choice. “I know that a lot of the technology in the amplifier was built with the tour sound market in mind. However, I think this type of application is even more demanding than having the equipment on the road because the amplifiers are constantly running. For cinemas you need power and reliability. These amps give us a ton of headroom and with Crown you know you are getting a great product,? said Collins.

Big Show Construction Management Brings Rocket Park Teaching Course To Life For New York Hall Of Science

RocketIf the concept was unusual – use engagement with a mini-golf course to teach young students about astrophysics – the challenge of making it work in the real world was equally unique. As the New York Hall of Science in Flushing Meadows, Queens, celebrates the instant acclaim of Rocket Park Mini Golf Course, they have Big Show Construction Management’s expertise to thank for putting proof to each putt.

With actual NASA Atlas and Titan rockets standing stately guard, museum docents guide young visitors through a nine-hole putting course in which each hole represents a different aspect of astrophysics. But for the Hall of Science, mere illustration would never do. Here instead, the players work through actually physics challenges – achieving proper ‘escape velocity’ to launch a ball into ‘orbit,’ avoiding space debris, and finding the correct angle for geosynchronous orbit.

grandMA Goes On 5-City Tour With Jay-Z

Jay-ZRapper Jay-Z began a 5-city summer tour with Ciara accompanied by grandMA. Lighting designer Patrick Dierson and Justin Collie of Performance Environment Design Group selected a pair of grandMA consoles, one controlling lighting and one controlling the show’s video. A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive distributor of grandMA in North America.

Since the logistics of the tour required Dierson to cover large areas with equipment that had to be erected quickly each day he simplified the lighting design to a standard three-truss set up. “The main thing the lighting had to achieve was filling in negative space around the video elements,” he explains. “Elation’s new Design Wash LED Pro, a standard moving-head LED wash fixture on five custom-made octagonal arrays, filled in the gap of the negative area.”

Dierson also employed Coemar ACL units and Main Light MF3s for audience lighting. “Because the more
