    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   One of the most challenging aspects of doing production in a church setting is that church happens every week. During the week we have meetings, stuff to fix and install, TPS reports to file and a host of other things to get done. It’s pretty easy to drop into mechanical way of doing things. Sometimes, we do things because we’ve always done them that way. Other times, we do whatever we inherited from… View this post

    Hi. My name is Craig, and I’m a gearaholic. I tried to find a 12-step program, but quite frankly if I have to move gear more than six steps, I’m going to need a hand truck because my back isn’t what it used to be. It’s not just that I like gear; it’s that I’m addicted to it. I fall asleep reading equipment catalogs. I bypass articles in trade magazines, unless they’re talking specifically about gear, to look at the… View this post

    SynAudCon announces an educational seminar providing a comprehensive introduction to emergency communication systems to be held in the Washington D.C. area on November 9-12, 2016. Important changes in NFPA72 include allowing the use of the house sound system for emergency announcements, and permitting ECS messages to be transported on a data network. These provisions open a new market for the sound reinforcement industry and an opportunity for collaboration between the sound reinforcement and fire alarm/mass notification industries. More than ever,… View this post

    I define a trend as a lasting change in the direction of a technology or market. Webster’s dictionary says, among other things, that it’s defined as “ a line of development.” A fad, on the other hand, is defined by Webster as “a practice or interest followed for a time with exaggerated zeal.” This led me to consider a “trend or fad” example in our industry: the line array. It’s true that these improved tools have taken the market by… View this post

      The human auditory system is equipped with two inputs - left and right ears. This “binaural” processing system provides us with the ability to localize where sound is coming from, something that a one-eared listener would have difficulty in doing. Playback systems may utilize any number of channels to surround the listener with sound, but two channels is always enough to simulate the human listener. Recording enthusiasts have long discovered the benefits of stereo microphones. While not necessarily “human-like,”… View this post

    This article is provided by Commercial Integrator   The last few months in my little corner of the AV industry has been met with some significant upheaval. At last count seven AV compatriots had lost their job or quit with no prospects on the table. The narcissistic part of me would claim that I was bad luck, but that’s just silly. Right? As I watch and help where I can, the question of what these fine AV professionals want to… View this post

    I first met Tony Hill while working with Chuck Colson’s Prison Fellowship in the late 1990s. Not a typical “sound guy,” he displayed a passion for the craft that seemed to fall second only to his passion for people. A minister in every sense of the word, with technical prowess to match. Now the owner of AV systems firm Ears 2 Hear Audio in Indianapolis, he’s never been content with his skill level, possessing a desire to continuously improve and… View this post

    Indiana Wesleyan University’s 350-acre campus is outfitted with the Phillippe Performing Arts Auditorium, where the university hosts a number of concerts, lectures, family camps, and more. Recently, the performance center required an audio overhaul to replace old and outdated microphones and sound equipment. The school tasked Phil Huber, technical coordinator of sound, lighting, and media group, and interim director, to identify a new microphone system setup. Huber turned to Shure ULX-D digital wireless and installed eight channels with a combination… View this post
