ARCHIVE: John Meyer’s Been Busy

During my visit to the Meyer Sound booth (5961), it quickly became apparant to me that Meyer’s legendary co-founder and chief, John Meyer, remains as busy as ever creating “his babies,” as marketing chief Kasi Miller described new speakers to me. Those babies in question include new line array speaker products and cinema speaker products that basically are coming to life simply because Meyer retains his passion for his industry and for inventing them.

A couple of them are so new, more…

ARCHIVE: AMX Motto: Simplicity

hpx-1600.jpgThe message being promoted at the AMX booth (4727) is “simplicity” this year, especially with a cool little widget that the company’s marketing manager, Jeff Kindig, calls “our sleeper product at the show.” That’s because AMX HydraPort Connection technology solves important, little problems, when compared to the mega signal switchers and other types of technology found across the show. HydraPort is a simple, little, table pop-up module column that is easily custom configurable by the installer or end user directly. more…

ARCHIVE: InfoComm Day 3

More companies took the show as an opportunity to make announcements, such as the agreement between Yamaha and Audinate. As of this month, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems will handle North American distribution of Audinate’s Dante-MY16-AUD networking card.

ARCHIVE: My Favorite Thing So Far: Q-Sys

It’s hard to pick a true favorite, but if I did…. So, Rich Zweibel and John Britton (the Media Matrix guys) inevitably had a next-gen idea–how could they not? They took their idea to QSC and the result is the Infocomm 2009 debut of Q-Sys. Not the greatest name, but nevermind. You’re going to want to know much more about this than I can tell you in a blog post, so at the end of this post I’ll provide some links and a schedule of Certification Training for systems designers and integrators.

You’ll need to learn about this, not only to do your job if you work with big installs, but to understand some key things about the future of DSP even if you work on a smaller scale. Besides if you like elegant technology, it’s just fun. Caveat here: I haven’t seen it work. I do know it’s already specified into some very high profile jobs with at least one very notoriously picky client. But for now, I’m so far impressed with the the idea, the design, and of course the personnel–Rich and John have made significant contributions to this industry going back to Cobranet.

On the booth I scratched the surface with Gerry Tschetter. He walked me through the basics of this new paradigm for audio routing, processing, control and monitoring. more…

Boom Box

dscn1791.JPGI wrote earlier about the LOUD organizational changes; this afternoon my visit to the Martin demo room (202C) was more about simple, primal pleasures. A big sub. It’s good they made it, you know it will be great and you can hear it yourself if you’re here. Here’s the picture–and another one for scale. It’s enormous. Makes me want to go to Glastonbury.
