LynTec, a leading manufacturer of innovative electrical power control solutions for professional audio, video, and lighting (AVL) systems, announced that Sapphire Sound, in collaboration with GerrAudio, deployed LynTec’s AVL power control in the storied Jack Singer Concert Hall in Calgary. Part of Calgary Alberta’s Arts Commons facility, it is one of the most acclaimed venues in North America. It is home to the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, BD&P World Stage, and TD Jazz.
While COVID-19 forced the JSCH to remain closed to the public throughout 2020 and into the 2021 season, the not-for-profit space was able to use the downtime to overhaul its AVL systems. A feature of the overhaul was the installation of a flexible Meyer Sound system that can easily be reconfigured to accommodate multiple audience seating arrangements, depending on the type of show being performed on stage. To achieve this, the team at the Jack Singer brought in local AV integrator Sapphire Sound; GerrAudio Distribution, Meyer Sound’s Canadian distributor; and Meyer Sound to come up with a hybrid system.
