Meeting Report – January 2012 – Tour Of The Indiana University Auditorium & Production Facilities

At this, the first of our meetings scheduled for the year which was held on January 23, 2012 at 6:30pm, we were privileged to be led on a tour of the  Indiana University Auditorium.

Gene Frazier and John DeLong led the section on a tour on the critically acclaimed facility which was originally built as a Federal Works Agency Project under the Roosevelt Presidency but which has recently undergone significant upgrades to its audio system.

A key focus of the tour was the recently installed L-Acoustics KUDO system, as well as an Avid Profile and a wiring project, all undertaken amidst a busy summer production schedule.

Hearing the constraints of the project and the quality of sound within the auditorium, all members were very impressed with the work accomplished by the house staff, outside vendors, and Robert Scoville who served as a consultant.

We’d like to thank the several dozen members who made the drive to attend. As always, those with questions or concerns are encouraged to contact us. To stay up to date on section activities, be sure to follow us on Facebook or Twitter.
