AV Services of VA is proud to be a dealer for Presonus digital audio products. We are currently installing a Presonus 16:4:2 into a church where this app is perfect for adjusting monitor levels in the choir and praise band areas.
PreSonus has released what it claims is the first dedicated wireless control software for a small-format digital console: StudioLive Remote software for the Apple iPad. The app allows wireless remote control of any PreSonus StudioLive-series digital mixer’s channels, auxes, effects, subs, Fat Channel processors, and more. Not only can these functions be controlled from anywhere in a venue by the front-of-house sound person, but custom aux mixes can be simultaneously adjusted by any performer with an iPad.
StudioLive Remote, available free from the iPad Apps store, provides direct wireless control over PreSonus Virtual StudioLive software for Mac and Windows, which in turn controls the StudioLive mixer.
“While there are iPad apps for digital mixers costing tens of thousands of dollars, StudioLive Remote is the only iPad solution for affordably priced mixers,” says PreSonus CEO Jim Mack. “It’s a free app and is part of the free Virtual StudioLive computer-control system that also ships free with both our 24- and 16-channel digital mixers.”
StudioLive Remote is a true iPad app, not a port. It provides multiple views of the key StudioLive mixer controls. The Overview displays most-used parameters, such as channel levels, mutes, panning, EQ curves, and more for multiple channels at once. Users can click for a close-up view of Fat Channel processing, and navigate among gate, compressor, EQ, and so on with the flick of a fingertip. The Aux view shows the levels, panning, and Fat Channel processing for the Aux sends and internal FX buses. Price: Free

Digital menu boards will change restaurant industry
Last Updated on Monday, 25 July 2011 08:26 Written by victorB Monday, 25 July 2011 08:26
To begin I would like to state I am not stupid enough to believe the development of digital menu boards or digital signs are nearly as important as the development of computers. However, I do believe it is valid to make some comparisons.
If you are old enough to remember when personal computers first became available you know it took a long time for most people to start using them, even in business. In the beginning, we were told the primary benefit was to save time and reduce costs. What we later learned was they did not save time. Instead, they greatly increased our individual capability, capacity and quality of work. They allowed us to do much more, more quickly and more accurately. Computers allowed us to do many things we could not do without them. I delayed using them because it seemed like too much work to download the data and get the programs set up. Today, I don’t think we could survive without personal computers. Try taking them away and see what happens.
I can remember a few years ago when every executive had a secretary; now there are very few. As an example, it would take me all day working with my secretary and several other people to get a large proposal or important document composed, typed and ready to be delivered by overnight service to a customer. I can do the same thing today by myself, do it better and have it delivered in a matter of minutes.
Let’s compare personal computers to digital menu boards. Think about how much time and how many people it takes for a restaurant chain to make changes to the content in a traditional menu board system and have it displayed properly in the restaurants. It takes several weeks or a couple months. With digital menu boards it takes a matter of hours. One person can do it easily, better and the content is more effective. Consider how much more you can do with digital menu boards than with traditional boards. I won’t list them here, but the list is long. These are features you can compare with computers.
A true test of the value of a new technology is to see what would happen if you take it away after people have used it long enough to utilize its full capabilities and have them switch back to the old technology. Consider what would happen if you took away personal computers today. It would be a disaster. Although it would still be difficult to find someone utilizing the full capabilities of digital menu boards, how do you think they would react if they had to switch back to the old technology? Although I would say McDonald’s has not used its digital menu boards long enough to utilize their full capabilities, it is the best example I can think of. Ask its management how they would feel about replacing the digital boards in their McCafe units with the old menu board technology. It would be a huge problem.
I believe digital menu boards will eventually replace all the old boards, and many new capabilities will continue to be developed and utilized.
