Alpha Tech joins RADA in support of the Thato Kematla orphanage day

Thato kematla Day

On Saturday 28th July, Alpha Technologies, joined forces with RADA and spent a day with the Orange Farm orphanage Thato Kematla. Every year we gather to give back to the community for a day of music, food and entertainment. Thato Kemathla is an orphanage run by the wonderful and caring Disebo. The home currently houses 31 children aged from 3 months to 18 years. There are a few ladies who volunteer their time to make sure these precious children are cared for. Thanks to generous donors, their monthly food and staff are sponsored, ensuring that the children are provided for.

Saturday morning started off with us delivering much appreciated groceries/blankets and winter clothing to the children. A vibrant drumming session where each child participated with a drum, learning different rhythms and singing along to cultural songs set the tone for a vibrant and interactive event. . Whilst the team from Alpha Technologies grabbed a few paint brushes and painted the homes boundary wall, we had a staff member from Clamber Club entertain outside with various physical activities such as tug of war and soccer. Thanks to Rada we had a braai fired up where we were able to provide delicious boerie rolls and cold drinks for lunch whilst the children enjoyed music from the South African Production The Colour Purple. 

We would like to thank RADA, Joseph (CEO Alpha Technologies) and all who participated on the day to brighten up the lives of this community, and who took the time to give back to the youth of South Africa.

ShowMatch Rental

Bose Professional ShowMatch™ Systems Increasingly Adopted by Rental Sound Company Owners Worldwide.

ShowMatch is rapidly becoming the system of choice, and a smart business decision for leading rental and tour sound companies, based on its sound quality, compact size, selectable coverage patterns and scalability – allowing ShowMatch systems to handle a wide variety of sound reinforcement applications 

Framingham, MA, December 5, 2017 – Within the past few months, numerous sound and A/V rental company owners around the world have chosen the new Bose Professional ShowMatch™ compact line array system with DeltaQ™ variable-coverage technology as a go-to solution for their rental inventories. 

In the United States, Total Production Group (TPG) of Cerritos, California, is an example of a full-service A/V rental company that has adopted ShowMatch. Owner/partner Steve McAllister said going with a ShowMatch system was a very easy decision: “I’ve heard many different systems over the years, and I was very impressed by the coverage and clarity of the Bose ShowMatch system. ShowMatch is a great system for our company because it allows us to scale the rig for anything from a small corporate gig all the way up to stadium-size shows – and do it with amazing quality. It’s small and compact, and it’s just as capable of handling a symphony as it is for EDM shows – simply by reconfiguring the boxes. We’re finding lately that there is more interest in smaller, mid-sized systems that are scalable, because it gives us and our clients flexibility and easier logistics for moving the system from show to show. I know ShowMatch is going to become the workhorse of our audio systems.” 

Across Europe, ShowMatch systems are in use by over two dozen rental companies helping to fulfill production contracts for product launches, business conventions, jazz festivals, civic ceremonies and rock shows.

As examples, rental firm Xeos (Strasbourg, France) recently completed a series of events for French automaker Peugeot. In Italy, Sonique Live recently provided sound services for British rockers Marillion in concert at the 2,400-seat Teatro Degli Arcimboldi (Milan), while Star Service (Milan) helped support the multi-venue, outdoor Piano City Milano event series. Star Service recently added a 24-box Bose ShowMatch line array system with 12 SMS118 subwoofers to its rental inventory. 

In Asia, integrated audio-visual rental firm Really A/V (Shanghai, China), services a variety of corporate and entertainment industry clients like Victoria’s Secret and Alibaba Group, China’s leading e-commerce company. Really A/V recently acquired 24 ShowMatch line array modules and 12 SMS118 subwoofers. Vincent Gu, Sound Supervisor for the Shanghai Chinese Orchestra, recently mixed on the ShowMatch system. “This group is very much like western symphony orchestras, but with special musical instruments unique to China,” noted Gu. “The Bose system was extremely clear, with well-defined coverage for our concert in the Shanghai Opera House. I look forward to seeing this system becoming more available in local rental inventories”. 

In Latin America, regional rental companies specializing in live concerts and festivals are also adopting ShowMatch systems. T&S Group (Quito, Ecuador) recently held a ShowMatch training and certification event for area system owners and operators, along with local sound reinforcement technicians, highlighting the new Bose system solutions platform that includes Powersoft DSP and amplification. 

In Australia, FOH engineer Anatole Day recently mixed his show on a Bose ShowMatch system, in a ground-stacked configuration, with artist Guy Sebastian in concert at the Newcastle Civic Theater. “This was definitely the best-sounding show on the tour,” noted Anatole. “ShowMatch delivered high quality audio for the quieter songs as well as the louder ones.”

    New EdgeMax™ in-ceiling premium loudspeakers combine the superior coverage patterns typical of larger surface-mount loudspeakers with the visually appealing aesthetics of in-ceiling loudspeakers. Debuting an entirely new product category, EdgeMax loudspeakers feature proprietary Bose® PhaseGuide® technology, which provides room-filling coverage while improving overall sound quality compared to the performance of conventional ceiling loudspeakers.   Designed for mounting near wall boundaries, EdgeMax loudspeakers project high-frequency sound throughout rooms up to 20 m (65 feet) wide using only perimeter mounting locations, and can effectively cover an area that would require up to four conventional ceiling loudspeakers. EdgeMax loudspeakers can eliminate the need for ceiling speakers mounted in the center of rooms, or surface-mount loudspeakers mounted on walls. And because of their unique design and consistent coverage pattern, EdgeMax loudspeakers reduce the total number of in-ceiling loudspeakers required, enabling installers to move efficiently through the installation, creating great-looking and great-sounding end results. Additionally, EdgeMax loudspeakers produce excellent intelligibility for speech and full-frequency response for music, making them ideal for retail, commercial, educational and conferencing applications.   EdgeMax in-ceiling premium loudspeakers are available with two different horizontal coverage patterns. The EdgeMax EM90 model provides nominal 90-degree horizontal coverage and is intended for in-ceiling mounting near room corners. The EdgeMax EM180 model provides nominal 180-degree horizontal coverage and is intended for in-ceiling mounting near wall boundaries centered along target coverage zones. Both models feature 75-degree asymmetrical vertical coverage, optimized for ceiling heights between 2.4 m and 6.1 m (8 and 20 feet). Key features of EdgeMax in-ceiling premium loudspeakers:
  • PhaseGuide technology provides a unique asymmetrical vertical pattern for room-filling coverage when mounting near wall-ceiling boundaries
  • Provides improved room visual appearance for demanding interior designs by eliminating center-of-ceiling or wall-mounted loudspeakers
  • High-frequency compression driver for best-in-class audio quality with superior frequency response and coverage consistency versus typical dome tweeters
  • Eight-inch woofer with wall-boundary loading, provides extended bass impact
  • Two-way passive crossover with 70/100V transformer
  • New auto-hold, spring-loaded mounting arms for fast, easy installs
  • Magnetically-attached grille for quick access to wiring and tap settings
  • Coverage pattern similar to a surface-mount loudspeaker, enables stereo designs
  • UL1480A listing for air-handling (plenum) space installation
