Toronto, Ontario, Canada – July 2014… As one of the largest reality show franchises on television, Big Brother follows a group of strangers living together in a house outfitted with dozens of cameras and microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day, seven days a week. One by one, the House Guests vote each other out until, at the end of three months, the last remaining House Guest wins the grand prize. Big Brother Canada, produced by Insight Productions Company LTD. for Shaw Media Inc. and airing on both Global and Slice television, allows one to see how people react when forced into close confinement with others outside their comfort zone. Capturing the interactions of the contestants is what makes the show so interesting and to ensure not a snippet of dialog is missed, B3 Omnidirectional Lavalier microphones from Menlo Park, CA-based Countryman Associates are used extensively.

LONDON, ENGLAND: Michalis “MsM” Michael is a UK-based mix engineer with a growing and eclectic list of credits that includes several Top-20 singles, a number-one single, notable work on Diddy's Last Train to Paris and going on to assist the chief engineer of the Grammy Award-winning J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League. His work while assisting necessitated travel, which motivated Michael to shift his workflow from reliance on hardware processing. These days, he mixes almost entirely in the box (ITB) and relies on Metric Halo plug-ins to deliver sonically-solid sounds with zero hassle. His recent work on Tom Prior's Bad Advice EP to be released later this summer, which was produced in part by former Arctic Monkeys bassist Andy Nicholson, exemplifies Michael’s new workflow.

COLUMBIA, MISSOURI: The Columbia Performing Arts Centre in Columbia, Missouri is a private, not-for-profit dance school for children founded in 1998, and its students range in age from toddlers through college age. The school recently completed a major addition including four new studios. The addition replaced the nearby, but separate, studio annex allowing them to have all eight studios under one roof creating a safer environment for the students. Local A/V integration firm Sound Concepts Inc. was hired to design and install high-fidelity sound systems, both for the new studios and to preemptively replace the older components in the existing studios. Sound Concepts Inc. delivered an impactful, energy-efficient sound system centered on the Ashly nXp8002 two-channel Network Amplifier rated at 800W per channel with a built-in Protea™ DSP Processor. All nX Series amplifiers can be programmed to trigger a defeatable sleep mode where the amp draws less than 1 Watt of AC power.

GAINESVILLE, GEORGIA: Danley Sound Labs, maker of innovative loudspeakers and subwoofers, announces the expansion of its OS "Outdoor Series" of fully-weatherized loudspeakers, including a new fully-weatherized subwoofer. Although all Danley products are optionally available with level-2 weatherization, which includes fiberglass seams, stainless steel hardware, and protective coatings over all wooden components, the fact remains that those wooden components will have a shorter life span in the elements than they would have had in an indoor installation. In contrast, Danley OS products are constructed of molded plastic with a custom injection molded shell rated to last fifty-years. The cabinet is sealed so the inner components are also protected from harsh outdoor elements. The materials are sourced from within a half-hour of Danley's Gainesville, Georgia headquarters – a boon for large orders and/or short lead times.
