BUENA PARK, Calif. — A new learning centre was recently added to the Oshman Family Jewish Community Centre in Palo Alto, Calif. The two-story building features a large area on each floor that can be divided in half by a moveable air wall, so it can host up to four different events at once. Each of the four interactive classrooms includes a projector and dedicated audio equipment.

The Taube Koret Campus for Jewish Life is a welcoming, innovative, multi-generational destination where individuals and families live, learn, play and connect. The 8.5 acre site is anchored by the Oshman Family Jewish Community Center and since its opening in September 2009, the campus has created a hub for the region’s growing Jewish community.

Anew audio system in each of the community center areas was installed by Advanced Systems Group LLC (Emeryville, CA) and built around a Yamaha Commercial Installation Solutions (CIS) system. A Yamaha MRX7-D DSP processor with EXi8 analog input expansion unit and XMV4140-D Dante digital audio network amplifier are housed on the first floor of the center. Each of the four community center areas includes a Yamaha VXS10STW surface-mount speaker and six VXC8W ceiling speakers.

“Although it was a relatively easy AV install, the learning center has hard, glossy floors and windows, so we had to take the reflective surfaces into account for the audio performance,” explained Jodie Capriotti, sales account manager for Advanced Systems Group. “The modular, expandable, and easy-to-install Yamaha CIS system was ideal for this application.”
