    When St. Phillip’s College, located in San Antonio, Texas, built the Watson Auditorium 10 years ago the idea was to provide a state-of-the-art performing arts center for the college and surrounding community. Unfortunately, the sound reinforcement system that was installed, although adequate, had intelligibility issues and was not keeping up with the demands of the theater’s programming. The school contacted San Antonio Sound & Light who worked closely with system designers from Wrightson, Johnson, Haddon & Williams (WJHW) to remedy… View this post

    One of the hottest new venues in Minneapolis’s thriving live music scene, Icehouse is located in a former ice harvesting plant in the city’s hip Whittier neighborhood. The interior finishes—wood and brick ceilings and walls of metal, glass and brick—underscore the building’s industrial past even as the space has been reborn as a bar and restaurant featuring live performance nightly. But while these surfaces reflect the history of the room they also literally reflect a lot of sonic energy, which… View this post

    Situated to the east of Hofors Municipality, Gävleborg County, in Sweden, a small rural town with less than 1,000 inhabitants, the Torsåker Protestant church was completed in 1758, replacing the medieval church that had stood on the site since the 13th century. Outside the church are two rune stones, placed there during the 11th century and much sought after by adventurous tourists. Inside the church the altar piece and pulpit both date to the late 17th century, carved by master… View this post

    For many years Christ Baptist Church in Raleigh, North Carolina, used a converted office building as their worship center. They worked on raising funds to build a sanctuary that would serve the needs of the fledgling church for decades to come. That time arrived recently, and now Christ Baptist Church has a 1,200-seat sanctuary with a 150-seat choir. A/V integration firm Provision Audio/Video Services of Rolesville, North Carolina designed and installed a first-rate sound reinforcement system for the new sanctuary.… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   Our existing lighting system is pretty bad. When it was installed, money was tight and the church did what churches do; put in the wrong stuff, installed wrong. We have 72 channels of dimming installed, roughly 45 of which work. And some of the “working” channels won’t hold a full load, so we’ll have lights shut off at random intervals. When the electricians came out to survey the system, they spent about two… View this post

    Electric power companies have a good idea that has been applied to audio engineering. When they run power through miles of cable, they minimize resistive power loss by running the power as high voltage and low current. To do this, they use a step-up transformer at the power station and a step-down transformer at each customer’s location. This reduces power loss due to the I2R heating of the power cables. The same solution can be applied to audio communications in… View this post

Marked by the same installer-friendly approach as the company’s C5 Credenza Rack, the new Reference Lectern eliminates long waits, speeds up integration and reduces the effects of transit damage by shipping the outer wood surfaces separately from the internal rack structure. The Reference Lectern’s AV-focused design enables quick and easy customization. Each lectern features a fully customizable Presenter’s Panel… View this post
