Toronto, Ontario, Canada â€“ September 2009â€¦ CinequipWhite Incorporated and Lectrosonics are pleased to announce that during the PAL show this past August 23rd and 24th at the Toronto International Centre, the two companies bestowed a Lectrosonics TM400 wireless system for test and measurement on one lucky show attendee. The lucky winner was Glenn Cooper, Technical Director at the Aultsville Theatreâ€” located on the Cornwall campus of St. Lawrence College, along the shores of the scenic St. Lawrence River in Eastern Ontario. The PAL show is Canadaâ€™s largest production technologies trade show for pro audio, lighting, video, staging, and software products.
Colin Bernard, Lectrosonicsâ€™ Director of Canadian Operations, commented on the decision to award one lucky show attendee with a TM system. â€œThe Lectrosonics TM400 wireless system for test and measurement is an exceptional audio engineerâ€™s tool for live sound applications,â€? Bernard said.
â€œThe TM400 was designed as the ideal link between calibrated test microphones and measurement equipment such as SIMÂ®, SIA SMAART LiveÂ®, TEFÂ® or other systems. By using a radio link, long cables can be eliminated, thus saving time and providing opportunities for additional measurements to increase accuracy. The ability to evenly distribute oneâ€™s voice throughout a theater is critical to the success of any production and the TM system is a first-rate tool for ensuring accurate acoustic measurements. Itâ€™s the ideal system to help with theatrical sound issues.â€?
In order to ensure absolute fairness and impartiality, the actual drawing was conducted by Al Kowalenko, Executive Director of PAL. â€œWe were absolutely delighted that the winner was a small, modern regional non-profit theater,â€? notes Arsenault. â€œMr. Cooper is exactly the type of person we were hoping to reach through this joint promotion.â€?
The Aultsville Theatre is a 680-seat, professionally equipped theater that has played host to a myriad of world-class performances. Glenn Cooper, the theaterâ€™s Technical Director, commented on his recent good fortune. â€œIâ€™m positively delighted,â€? said Cooper. â€œThe Aultsville Theatre is primarily a road house and, this being the case, we get many performers coming through who prefer to use their own sound rigs. The TM will not simply be used for a one time only set up but will, instead, be used help us provide quality sound for our patronsâ€”no matter which rig is brought in.â€?
