Foothill Ranch, CA (May, 11 2009)--Renkus-Heinz has named its first factory-authorized commissioning specialists, appointed as part of a program to extend the community of specialists qualified to commission ICONYX- and RHAON-equipped audio installations.
Sam Berkow, Adam Shulman and Steve Sockey of SIA Acoustics; Stephen Solberg and Robert Ledo of CFA Consulting; Bruce Coffman of Touch Thirty Three Consulting; and James Brawley of James Brawley and Associates are the appointed specialists.
The announcement followed an intensive two-day training session at the firm's Foothill Ranch, CA, factory, part of which was spent onsite at the nearby ICONYX-equipped San Juan Capistrano Mission Basilica.
David Rahn, U.S. national sales manager, explains, "Our in-house system commissioning program has become very popular with ICONYX installers, and a lot of other integrators have been using it as well, perhaps to fine-tune a RHAON network or to optimize system performance. We've found this an excellent way of reaching out to our customers and learning more about their installations, and we have been increasingly supporting it with key engineering and application resources from the factory.
"Since more and more consultants are writing specs for our equipment, and given that this year we will have more ICONYX, IC LIVE and RHAON projects than ever, we anticipate a strong growth in demand for these services. The answer was to make these techniques available to our trusted regional consultants, empowering them to commission these systems on our behalf, and the program has been rolled out very successfully. We will, of course, continue to provide factory commissioning for complex projects, while these new resources will make the services available to even more customers."
