    In these financially difficult times, maximizing the potential of facilities has become a key issue for the education sector. At the same time as delivering high quality education in line with modern expectations, schools need to ensure that their facilities generate their own revenue. These are the reasons why one Australian primary school has invested in DiGiCo, opening up a new market for the console manufacturer. Helensvale Primary, located on Queensland’s Gold Coast, recently finished a new performing arts centre,… View this post

    Total Events, based in Geelong Victoria, supplied a Harman-based audio system for background music, MC and umpires at the Geelong Lawn Tennis Club stands for the recent Davis Cup tennis tournament in Australia. The main challenge for Total Events was keeping a minimal layout without obscuring sightlines and the company’s stock of JBL Professional VRX Constant Curvature loudspeakers was well-suited for the application due to their low visual impact. Six JBL VRX918S powered subwoofers and 12 JBL VRX932LA loudspeakers were… View this post

Used analog consoles cost a fraction of their original price, so it’s not unusual to find club equipment older than the engineer running it. However, concert sound production is accustomed to the benefits that digital consoles provide. Let’s see what those benefits bring to live music… View this post
