In this edition of the SVC Podcast, SVC Contributing Editor Bennett Liles talks with Les Stephenson of Music Masters in Tallahassee, Fla., about the installation of a new video and surround sound system in the Florida State Senate Chamber. Stephenson details the system concept and talks about the steps taken to deal with the difficult acoustics presented by the presence of a huge metallic dome located over the room. He also discusses the rather creative ways in which equipment is disguised to blend with the room’s décor.
