Masque Sound (www.masquesound.com) unveiled its 70,000-square-foot facility in East Rutherford, N.J., and added another dimension to a number of live sound services in the process. A recent open house revealed increased space for technical support, networking and wireless system design and fabrication, extending the 67-year-old company's expertise in all things live: Broadway shows, touring musicals, live concerts and TV broadcasts, sporting events, corporate events and conventions.

Masque principals James and Geoff Shearing also announced a new division, Masque Entertainment, which will provide DVD production services for live concert and corporate clients. The division is headed up by executive producer/director Gerard Schmidt, whose credits include the Rolling Stones Four Flicks DVD, the Beastie Boys and Sum 41.
