Winnipeg – August 2, 2011 – Christian artist, singer/songwriter Steve Bell is on a roll. With 16 solo albums under his belt since he launched his solo career in 1989, Bell is currently touring for his latest album, Kindness, but in the last few years he has also made a name for himself playing with symphony orchestras across Canada. To get the kind of melodious sound Bell is known for from his albums, he and his crew rely almost exclusively on Neumann microphones during their performances, whether Bell is performing solo, with his band or with one of a dozen symphony orchestras.

Considered a “happy accident� by Bell, the symphony orchestra tour began more than two years ago where he lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba, when he was invited to perform with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. Since that successful performance, Bell has more

Phoenix, AZ – August 2011… What might happen to our surroundings if people were to suddenly vanish from the face of the Earth? That’s the premise of Life After People, a new series on the History Channel. As each day, month, and year passes, the fate of a particular environment is examined. It’s hypothetical, of course, but the use of special effects, combined with interviews from top experts in the fields of engineering, botany, biology, geology, and archeology provides an unforgettable visual experience. For one particular episode, much of the information gathered for the program was accomplished through interviews—many of which took place on a military base. With a plethora of radio frequencies in the environment, capturing the audio with wireless microphones turned out to be a real learning experience, but it all came together—thanks to wireless technology from Rio Rancho, NM-based Lectrosonics. more

Los Angeles, CA––Loyola Marymount University recently completed a fully outfitted athletic center with four locker rooms, an upstairs conference center with two adjoining mini conference centers, and a full weight and workout room.
Simon Productions of Winnetka, California was chosen to install the sophisticated AV system for the facility. Owner Terry Stewart explains that he and his team were tasked to “create smart rooms in the conference area with LCD screens, complete audio systems and individual zone control for the conference centers.
“We also did the hallway sections throughout the facility as stand-alone zones with the capability to play independent sources throughout the building,� Terry adds. “Each of the locker rooms has their own independent sound systems with TV screens and plug-and-play systems for power point presentations.�
The project required extensive amplification, another challenge for Stewart and his team. As Terry points out, “We needed both 2-and 4-channel more
