    Since 1917 when Spartan Stores opened as a coop, the organization has grown to include over one hundred grocery stores throughout Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana under the Family Fare, Glen’s Market, D&W Fresh Market, Felpausch Food Center, and VG’s Grocery brands. Recently the company added office space to its headquarters in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Because cubicles would populate the open space, Spartan Stores hired ASCOM Communications Contractors of Holland, Michigan to design a masking system that would allow its employees… View this post

    “Sound Reinforcement For Technicians” is a 3-day, in-person training program offered by SynAudCon that puts learning in the hands of the attendees. “When working on sound systems, we need numbers,” explains Pat Brown, SynAudCon owner and primary instructor. “Output level? Impedance of loudspeakers? System polarity? and more. This course is about learning how to take those measurements and how to interpret that data.” “Sound Reinforcement For Technicians” features an innovative iPod controlled hardware interface that emulates the instruments needed to… View this post

    An impromptu “plugfest” involving a new FiberPlex converter box earlier this month at the Las Vegas labs of top AV integrator AVDB Group solved a recurring problem with the growing number of platforms using the IEEE AVB set of protocols for AV streaming. “We needed a solution for the 100-meter (cable) limitation for our larger projects, which as you can expect of Las Vegas, is about as big as they get,” explained Bob Langlois, the general manager for AVDB Group’s… View this post

    Thanks in large part to funding as one of the EU’s latest members, Poland is investing heavily in its public transport, and Renkus-Heinz digitally steerable systems are a key part of the audio solution in three of the country’s major train stations. The EU’s expansion in 2004 brought Poland into the European Union, and the ensuing grants from Brussels have been wisely invested into major public projects to refresh the country’s infrastructure. The result is a new look for 21st… View this post

    With over five hundred stores, the Chadstone Shopping Centre in Melbourne, Australia is the largest shopping center in the southern hemisphere. In the run up to the recent holidays, Chadstone’s owners hired Corporate Initiatives of Nunawading, Victoria to install a video wall and sound system. The video wall would run advertisements for select stores in the shopping center, and the owners wanted audio support to make the advertisements as compelling as possible. The only catch was that the sound had… View this post

    The Audio Engineering Society (AES) has officially announced the publication of AES67-2013, a new engineering standard for networked/streaming audio-over-IP interoperability.  High-performance media networks support professional quality audio (16 bit, 44.1 kHz and higher) with low latencies (less than 10 milliseconds) compatible with live sound reinforcement. The level of network performance required to meet these requirements is available on local-area networks and is achievable on enterprise-scale networks. A number of networked audio systems have been developed to support high-performance media networking,… View this post
