    The Britannia Stadium is the home of Premiership Football Club Stoke City. The grounds, which cost £15 million, opened in 1997 by Sir Stanley Matthews. As a top-flight arena with a capacity of 28,000 spectators, the need to clearly deliver information throughout the venue is of great importance. From safety announcements and music, to team changes and minutes of added time, stadium announcer Steve Buxton is a busy man. Until recently, Buxton mixed output received via walkie-talkie behind glass—a less… View this story

    As any live sound engineer will tell you, touring mid-sized clubs is not for the faint of heart. Confronting the daily surprises of a new room, with a new sound system and a new console, can make or break the band’s show - and their audience. For Val Foster, engineer for Seattle hip hoppers Grieves, the solution was simple - using Mackie’s DL1608 digital live sound console with iPad control, Foster can assure the band and audience a consistent show,… View this story

    In a region renowned as the birthplace of modern religion, this sprawling metropolis on the banks of the Nile is dotted with houses of worship large and small.
