At AVI-SPL we like to take the opportunity to single out some of the valued manufacturers we rely on to bring our clients the quality solutions they expect. In a recently completed project for the Pennsylvania performance center ArtsQuest at SteelStacks, AVI-SPL employed Tannoy, Sony and Contemporary Research products.
Tannoy speakers throughout the public spaces handle foreground music and paging. AVI-SPL engineers say they were selected for their efficiency, audio bandwidth, coverage consistency, sound quality and aesthetic fit with the architecture.
A Sony HD Cam complements the NEC Digital Cinema projectors in the two theaters that comprise the Frank Banko Alehouse Cinema. HD-SDI video from the deck is fed into a processor to de-embed encoded digital audio in the AES/EBU format. Audio is routed to the Dolby Cinema processors where it is decoded and converted to left, center, right and surround channels for amplifiers. The HD-SDI video component is then sent to the projectors.
Contemporary Research Encoder/Modulators distribute video content from AMX digital video player/servers. They are also available to send feeds from the Musikfest Cafe video camera and other sources.
Watch a brief video overview of how AVI-SPL turned ArtsQuest at SteelStacks into a state-of-the-art performance center.
