Tech Tips – Managing Monitor Feedback

Managing Monitor Feedback

Audio feedback occurs when the output signal loops back into the input device, resulting in unwanted ringing, squealing and generally unpleasant noise. In the illustration below, feedback is represented by the output coming from a ceiling mounted monitor feeding back into a microphone with a

In this illustration, feedback is represented by the output coming from a ceiling mounted monitor feeding back into a microphone with a cardiod pattern. Although feedback can’t be completely eliminated, it can be managed by using a properly placed loudspeaker designed specifically as a floor monitor or using an in-ear type personal monitor system.

There are multiple factors that contribute to audio feedback. The next Tech Tip issue will address microphones.

We’ve Moved!

S&L Moves Operations to Thomasville

THOMASVILLE, GA — May 09, 2016

When I began a rebranding project including developing a website in October of 2014, owner and CEO Jason Jones revealed then that a move to Thomasville was already in the works; S&L was growing and it had long been his wish to move his company to the City of Roses.

The 20,000 square-foot facility was designed by architect Raymond Finger. It features a massive storefront with floor to ceiling windows, chiseled concrete and redwood siding. The purpose-built facility has 13 offices for sales, support and clerical staff, an oversized lounge area, three restrooms, a lobby, a video conferencing-capable boardroom with breakout rooms and an area for up to ten technicians, racks and service audio/visual equipment.

The largest portion of the building is occupied by 12,500 square-feet of warehouse space for rental equipment and to serve as a holding location for AV gear awaiting installation.

Construction was overseen by JCI Contractors. Interior space colors and finishes were selected by Clay Byars who also oversaw the rebranding. Many of the cabinets and counters were built and installed by International Design and Display Group. Lots of preparation and perspiration went into the construction and move.

S&L moved from a 7,500 square-foot warehouse in Cairo’s industrial park.

Getting Closer To Moving In

Getting Closer To moving In

After a cold Tuesday morning site meeting this week, I walked around the almost finished S&L Integrated campus in Thomasville, snapping photos of the progress.

All the walls are painted in tones and tints of blue and grey. Bathroom fixtures are in, interior glass has been installed, the ceiling grid has been hung awaiting tiles and the front lobby wood siding is almost complete.

Outside earthmoving machinery is constantly grading, preparing for paving, NeSmith Nursery is planting trees and shrubs and irrigation is going in the ground.

Lots of things have to be completed before the twenty plus employees move into the new Thomasville home. Flooring still has to be laid, office furniture has to be purchased, as well as mirrors and hallway lights hung. Tables and counters need to be built and a number of other tedious tasks have to be completed before moving day.

Stay connected for updates.

Greenwood Plantation Sparkles Under the Lights

S&L Integrated Systems helps Greenwood Plantation Sparkles Under the Lights

On a cool fall evening in October the “Preservation Barbeque,Membership Picnic ”, honoring people who preserve historic landmarks in Thomasville and Thomas County was held at Greenwood Plantation.  Mary Lawrence Lang, Developement Director at Landmarks explained “We first used S&L last year at The Lapham-Patterson house, and were very pleased with the lighting. We had never had professional lighting before, Madison Keaton knew exactly what options would work best for our needs and venue”. Both events were outdoor events that needed to showcase the venue as well as create a relaxed ambiance for the evening.

S&L provides Integrated Audio, Video, Lighting and Control Systems for Business, Government, Education, Healthcare, Worship and Live Production. “Listening to our clients’ needs and fitting a solution to their budget and timeframe is the key to keeping them happy.” explains Jason Jones, CEO and President of S&L Integrated.

Seven Midway Road Update 1.3

Seven Midway Road Update 1.3

There has been a lot of activity at the future site of S&L in Thomasville Georgia.
Flocks of geese have made the five acre lot and retention pond their new home over the past couple of weeks, perhaps anticipating the delivery of building materials as much as the team at S&L.

After the concrete slab was poured and the cement cured, the structural steel was delivered to the site on August 11. The following Monday workers began erecting the 12,500 square-foot warehouse structure.

Stay tuned for more progress the new building and on our upcoming new branding rollout.

It’s Official!

On a beautiful, sunny and warm May morning, the S&L team, family and ambassadors from the Thomasville Chamber of Commerce gathered at 7 Midway Drive in Thomasville, Georgia, to officially break ground for S&L Integrated Systems’ new facility. Jason Jones described the layout of the new building for ambassadors and friends.

Although the ground was broken a few weeks ago, the brief ceremony generated excitement from local business owners and Darlene Taylor, State Representative.

The new 20,000 square foot facility will feature 7500 square feet of office space for techs, salespeople and management as well as a lobby, showroom and conference room. Additionally, there will be a three-bay warehouse with a dedicated loading dock for semi trucks. The new building’s exterior was inspired by Starbucks in Seattle, Washington, and the interior design was inspired by Google headquarters in New York.
