Alcorn McBride, the leading manufacturer of show control, audio and video equipment for the themed entertainment industry, has provided audio and video equipment for Media Matrix’s latest projects at the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma Capitol Museum and the US Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Nature Center in Southern Oregon.
Media Matrix owner Vinnie Cavarra explains why he chose Alcorn McBride for both projects: “Alcorn McBride is my go to company for audio and video delivery. Their products are top notch and the people couldn’t be better to work with.”
Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma Capitol Museum
At the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma Capitol Museum, Alcorn McBride provided their DVM8500 Digital Video Machine DVM8500 to play back a short film on basket weaving. Cavarra explains that he chose the equipment “because of its reliability and ease of operation. It’s a turnkey system for the client: No maintenance is required – it just works!”
US Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Nature Center
The BLM’s Nature Center at the New River Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC), located in the Coos Bay District of Southern Oregon, features a virtual walk-through of the flora and fauna of the region. The 10-minute looped video content for the mural slide show is played back on an Alcorn McBride DVM8500. In addition an AM4 Professional Digital Audio Player is used to generate the interactive animal soundtrack played when buttons are pressed by visitors. An AM4 is also used for another exhibit to play back oral histories of the original landowners.
Cavarra adds, “Alcorn McBride is a company that truly partners with me on these projects. Director of Sales, Scott Harkless is very supportive, and Product Manager, Mike Polder is great with technical solutions. They’re great people, very willing and available to help with set up and trouble-shooting. They’re absolutely phenomenal to work with.”
