Palo Alto, CA (January 22, 2109)—The Oshman Family Jewish Community Center in Palo Alto, CA opened in 2009 and has since played a key role in the region's growing Jewish community. Expanding on that, the JCC recently opened a new, two-story learning center, providing classrooms, spaces for events and more. With the variety of spaces came a need for a variety of audio and visual equipment, too.
The building features a large area on each floor that can be divided in half by a moveable air wall, so overall, the facility can host up to four different events at once. Each of the four interactive classrooms required its own projector and dedicated audio equipment.
As a result, a new audio system in each of the community center areas was installed by Advanced Systems Group LLC (Emeryville, CA). “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.
Advanced Systems Group ultimately centered the installation 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.
