From The Archives: Spring Product Showcase Event

Recapping our Spring Product Showcase with Allen & Heath, QSC, Shure, and more! 


On Thursday, April 19th HWPco and Peachstate Audio presented the Spring Product Showcase. The event was educational and hands-on featuring a masterclass in Allen & Heath mixing led by Kevin Madden. 

The event was a full house, with plenty of folks arriving early to get some hands-on time with the consoles prior to the session. First up, Kevin Madden gave an overview of the Allen & Heath product offerings, as well as the history of the company and how the technology has progressed.

After the overview, Kevin had the attendees gather around the three consoles to practice with some hands-on time. The three consoles, two D-Live 5500 and one D-Live 3500, provided a unique opportunity for the entire class to follow along real time.

After an hour of time with the consoles, the lesson concluded and attendees broke for lunch. A lunch of BBQ from Sugar Hill Smokehouse was provided, and attendees had some time to network with each other.

After lunch there was time to speak directly with Kevin Madden and Anthony Myers of HWPCo. All three consoles were still available to practice with, and many people took advantage of this opportunity with some extended hands-on time. Kevin answered specific questions and did some one-on-one demos, while Anthony discussed new Shure Motiv products, QSC K.2 loudspeakers, Barco products, Hosa, and more.

InfoComm 2018 Recap

Two weeks ago we ventured out West to Las Vegas to take in the latest product offerings at InfoComm. While three days isn't enough time to see everything (it spanned 550,000 net square feet of exhibits, demo rooms and special events space, making it the biggest InfoComm ever), we did try to find the newest and most exciting products for you. Many of these products debuted at the show and won't be available until later this year, while some of them are ready to ship!

Due to the large amount of products that we're recapping, we'll separate into three sections: audio, lighting/staging, and video/convergence. We'll link some of these product recaps to web pages or youtube videos so that you can see more for yourself.

AV Networking Made Easy Seminar Recap

On Thursday, October 25, 2018 Peachstate Audio hosted an event with Luminex Network Intelligence, DiGiCo, and West Penn Wire. The event, dubbed "AV Networking Made Easy" came from the tagline of Luminex network switches. The seminar was planned due to the rise of networking knowledge that AV Professionals need to know to set up IP-Based systems. We wanted to give customers a chance to learn solutions that would help them set up AV Networks without prior IT knowledge. 
Rex Austin, Southeastern Sales Manager for West Penn Wire, kicked off the morning with his presentation. He opened by introducing the customers to the product and what makes it different. He then moved to different types of Category Cables and Fiber, specifically those that might be used in networking. For a full video of Rex's presentation, please check out the video below from Peachstate Audio's YouTube page.

Atlanta Caribbean Carnival Parade 2018

Over Memorial Day Weekend, we were proud to sponsor a "float" in Atlanta's Caribbean Carnival Parade. The Atlanta Caribbean Carnival Bandleaders Association (ACCBA) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to  promote a broader understanding and deeper appreciation for Caribbean culture by seeking the interest of Atlanta Caribbean Carnival Groups and using the Atlanta Caribbean Carnival as a vehicle for the promotion of Caribbean Culture among the broader Metro Atlanta Community. 



Our customer Peter Kahn designed the float for the parade, complete with Yorkville & ElectroVoice loudspeakers and subs. Products included the Yorkville EF15P 15"  loudspeaker & 21" Powered Subwoofer Elite, and the ElectroVoice 15" Three-Way Loudspeakers. This rig packed some serious power!





If the staggering size of the float and the power of the loudspeakers aren't enough, let's take a peek under the hood and look at some of the media mixers and control proces…
