Dynacord ProAnnounce™ System Installed at Dyess Air Force Base, Texas

August 10, 2005

Devin Welch of Bunkley’s Sound reported:

“The staff at the fitness center love the new system - the paging stations are especially easy to use, creating an effortless, intuitive interface with the matrix.”

“The fitness center at Dyess AFB is approximately 85,000 square feet in size. It has a gym, several racquetball courts, a pool, weight/cardio workout areas, a walking gallery and several classrooms. The base wanted the ability to page these multiple zones independently, and to increase the level of security and flexibility their old system provided. The design they gave us to work with was about five years old, and didn’t have any equipment specified. We’ve always had positive results working with Telex/EV equipment and with our Telex reps, and felt that ProAnnounce would not only fulfill the client’s requirements, but exceed their expectations. This was our first ProAnnounce installation, and, in using a combination of the best, most comprehensive product available and working with the best tech support team in the business, we were able to do this. The staff at the fitness center love the new system - the paging stations are especially easy to use, creating an effortless, intuitive interface with the matrix.“

Welch continued: “As a complete range of paging and matrix management products, ProAnnounce is supremely flexible and expandable. It offers a contractor the tools to specifically address the needs of their client with no superfluous hardware or confusing features, and also allows planning for additional equipment or zones to be easily integrated in the future if necessary. And again, working with Telex means that those products come with the best tech support backup out there. As the installation at Dyess AFB approached completion in early July, we asked Larry Benedict of Telex Pro Audio Group Tech Support to come down and double-check the system. Larry is an excellent technician, a good teacher, and we all learned a lot from him. He was very thorough and patient while working on the system - bearing in mind this was our first ProAnnounce job, this was critical. My confidence in the entire Telex/EV product line went up even more as a result of this level of service. It’s very reassuring to know you have technical support of this caliber available to you. In my nearly 20 years of dealing with commercial/professional audio, I have never encountered another company with this level of support. As a result, we were able to address the client’s needs with precisely the right amount of power, control and functionality.“
