Professional Audio:
With a combined 35 plus years of experience in the professional audio business world wide, IPM is capable of providing to our customers the correct solution to their audio needs. With experience in a number of the Olympic venues, to the Vatican, sports stadiums world wide, Disney theme parks, theaters, concert halls, houses of worship, metropolitan train systems, we know audio and the needs of the clients.

We use only professional products as we know that they will stand up under the various demands of our clients and provide years of service. We have the equipment and skill to measure the audio system and rooms to allow us to properly adjust and optimize the audio systems to provide the best results for the room and its use.

It is with this back ground, that the team at IPM sees the need to provide on a local basis the best audio designs and systems available to meet their needs with analog, digital and networking audio systems.

Recording Studios:
One of the most challenging venues to design is a recording studio. This is another area in which IPM has expertise. We recently installed three recording studios at Sweetwater Music at their new head quarters in Ft. Wayne, IN.

Professional Video:
IPM has the experience and knowledge to not only provide High Definition video projection systems, but we can provide video rebroadcast for large events so everyone can enjoy the show.

One of our recent projects was the replacement and update of the forty foot rear projection screen at Granger Community Church in Granger.

Professional Audio and Video Recording:
We have the ability to record events and generate quality DVD’s for the client to distribute to their customers or members.

We have had the pleasure of working with Penn High School and Northridge High School in recording their choral concerts and creating DVD’s for the students and their families.

Stage Lighting:
IPM has designed and provided the needed lighting for stage productions, from theaters, schools, churches and performance stages.

Special Events:
We have provided sound, video and lighting for a large number of events with our portable systems and trained systems engineers. We have provided support to the Elkhart Jazz Festival, St. Joe County Fair, Wakarusa Maple Festival, River Oaks community events, Napa (CA) and Naples (FL) Wine Festivals and many more.

Acoustic Solutions:
One of the more challenging areas of sound that most audio companies fail in is the acoustic affects of the venue and how to best address the issues. This becomes a challenge in that the best way to treat a venue or room for acoustic problems is not always apparent.

IPM has the resources and knowledge to not only correct or improve the sound quality in an existing room/venue but also we have the ability to work with your Architect during the design phase to avoid audio issues with unwanted reflections. 

The Difference:
It is with the above knowledge and reaching experience that separates Imagination Pro Media from the rest and allows us to provide our clients with the quality systems to meet their needs and expectations.

IPM was contracted to build the Harman Pro Audio traveling show and training trailers.

Studer, Soundcraft, and AKG Go Mobile

Harman Pro North America is currently putting the finishing touches on a new semi truck with 53' trailer that will soon be used to showcase Studer and Soundcraft mixing consoles, AKG microphones and other Harman equipment to broadcast, contracting/consulting and recording professionals throughout the United States.

Modeled on the highly successful Crown truck, HPNA's new mobile demonstration and training facility will make its official maiden voyage to theNSCA Expo in March (16-18, Las Vegas) before heading out on Harman Pro road shows in April (10-12, Las Vegas) and May (23-24, Atlantic City). After that, it will be frequently out on the road visiting broadcasters from coast to coast.

"This vehicle affords us the ability to spend more time with both current and potential customers and familiarize them with our technologies in a self-contained, controlled studio environment," says HPNA vice president and general manager Kim Templeman-Holmes. "Being able to drive this facility right up to broadcasters' and systems integrators' front doors and allow them to be hands-on with our brands in a distraction-free, comfortable setting will undoubtedly prove to be mutually beneficial."

The new trailer comprises two well-isolated environments--one room permanently housing a Studer Vista 8 digital live production console, and the other being highly configurable to host a variety of different demo/training setups. Aside from featuring Studer, Soundcraft and AKG products throughout, the mobile facility is also equipped with products from several sibling Harman manufacturers, including Crown amplifiers, JBL monitors/loudspeakers and Lexicon processors.

Midwest Trailer of Chicago supplied the trailer as well as performed much of the customization, with Imagination Pro Media of Goshen, Indiana, handling the audio equipment installation and additional fabrication.

The tractor unit--a Kenworth T2000--features an onboard 30kW, single-phase power generator, while a second generator is similarly built into the front end of the trailer enabling it to independently offer full electricity and air/heat without the tractor attached.

Harman Hits the Road


NORTHRIDGE, CA—Harman Pro North America (HPNA) is currently putting the finishing touches on a new semi truck with 53-foot trailer that will soon be used to showcase Studer and Soundcraft mixing consoles, AKG microphones and other Harman equipment to broadcast, contracting/consulting and recording professionals throughout the United States.

IPM provided the audio and video for two of the major wine charities events in the US.

Naples Winter Wine Festival Selects SLS International's Loudspeakers

    SPRINGFIELD, Mo., April 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SLS International

(OTC Bulletin Board: SITI) announced today that Imagination Pro Media Inc. used multiple RLA/2s for the Naples Winter Wine Festival, held in Naples,Florida. The festival, which celebrated its fifth year, is a charity event that benefits many local non-profit organizations including boys and girls clubs, after school programs and orphanages.

  

   "When we started out with the Naples Winter Wine Festival it was their

first year," said an associate of Imagination Pro Media Inc. "It is held outdoors in a tent on the beautiful property of the Ritz Carlton. Last year, when we setup the speakers, we were faced with a small problem because we needed more speakers to cover the whole width of the tent. This year we were looking for a change and SLS' RLA/2 gave us that option. With two stacks of the RLA/2s we were able to cover the width of the tent because of their coverage pattern. It worked quite well and we were happy we had the SLS speakers this year."

 

    With the auctioning of an assortment of items including private label

wines, a car donated by Maserati, a Rolls Royce made specifically for this event, vacations revolving around vineyards and a diamond ring, the Naples Winter Wine Festival raised over $12 million. During the event, invited guests were given a video tour showing where previous auction money has benefited.

 

    "We are very excited to be part of this type of event," says Rod Falconer, national sales manager for SLS. "They are very focused on what they are doing and it keeps them wanting to raise the bar and do more each year. Through the quality of the sound provided by our RLA/2, we believe we are helping them enhance the quality of the event. The more they do for the kids the more excited they are about it. It really is a great thing to be a part of."

  

 Wisler plans to use the SLS units at similar charity auctions in Napa

Valley and Sonoma Valley this summer. "The SLS RLA/2s are great sounding speakers," comments IPM. "Whether we need to have flying speakers or ground stack them, they work wonderfully for that kind of application. They provide full coverage without having to turn the volume up too loud."

Jay Leno Uses MIPRO Wireless

The annual Napa Valley Wine Auction is a major charity fund-raising event in the U.S. The auction, which has raised more than $52 million for local health care, housing and other causes since it began in 1981, got a major makeover this year. Imagination Pro Media, a MIPRO dealer, set up the audio equipment for this occasion. Both ACT-series and MR-801 systems were used.

Jay Leno, the star of the NBC ‘’Tonight ‘’ TV Show, was hired to host the auction and is shown here using a MIPRO MH-801 handheld microphone as is actress Teri Hatcher of the hit ABC show “Desperate Housewives”. In addition, the show assistant, Ursula Hermacinski, was using a MIPRO MU-55HN headworn microphone and the auctioneers were using the ACT-series.

The event sponsors and guests have given high compliments to MIPRO’s wireless products, especially the ACT units. Imagination Pro Media commented, " We love the hand-held Jay was using ~ it sounds so good and has absolutely no handling noise".

The news was reported on the front page of the ‘’Wall Street Journal’’ on June 24, 2005.
