Petaluma, CA (August 27, 2015)—Furman is protecting Dallas-based Sound Productions’ new sound, lighting and video products demo room against the vagaries of the Texas weather.
“Originally, we installed a power management system that we quickly lost confidence in,” explains Jeff Humphrey, vice president of sales and marketing at Sound Productions. “The system failed twice during brownouts, which were common this past spring due to unusually extreme weather in our area. Fortunately, the failures did not occur during business hours.”
The company installed the BlueBOLT-enabled Furman F1500-UPS, Furman P8 PRO-C and Furman M-8Lx power conditioners and a Furman voltage regulator into the racks of four live demo stations showcasing sound reinforcement, recording, contracting and mobile DJ products.
The room comes equipped with 10 top-selling digital consoles, a complete QSC line array speaker system, as well as five other major speaker brands, a broad range of lighting products and a full complement of mics and backline equipment to simulate a live sound environment. In the room’s FOH racks, four APB-DynaSonic MixSwitches are used in conjunction with two Presonus Central Stations which allow switching while auditioning the various consoles and speaker systems, all of which is protected and conditioned by Furman.
Since the system is running through the BlueBOLT-enabled Furman f1500-UPS, the Sound Productions team can monitor the system through the cloud-based power, energy and network management platform from anywhere in the world. BlueBOLT allows them to remotely reboot connected equipment in order to address a myriad of common system issues.
