Matt Massie, Sigmet Corporation’s Newest Sales Representative

Upstate New York, Sigmet Corporation is pleased to introduce our newest representative, Matt Massie. Matt is from the Town of Vestal. Born of a musical background, Matt took his father’s interests in music several steps farther by taking his hobby, the playing of drums, and building a career of connected fields around it. In his teens Matt developed an appreciation for the equipment that records and reproduces music. He did freelance installation of home theater systems throughout his 20s to pay for college. The logical extension of these interests was to find work in sales, which he did for a major musical instrument retailer for 7 years. Using that as a springboard, he leapt into Pro Audio eventually earning a position as the store’s Sales and Training Manager. He has since accepted a position at Sigmet and is very enthusiastic to pursue the next phase of his career. For contact information on Matt please download his v-card from the “Our Staff” page.

New Product Awards 2017Lighting Products – LED video display

Absen’s Acclaim Fixed Indoor LED Series brings together the best of LCD and LED by providing the benefits from both worlds.  Available in 1.5mm, 1.9mm, 2.5mm and 3.8mm pixel-pitch configurations, the Acclaim Series provides the perfect indoor direct-view LED solution for today’s markets including retail, corporate, transportation and house of worship.

The Acclaim 2.5 Fixed Indoor LED is a perfect fit for today’s house of worship market as it offers not only a bezel-free solution, but comes in a 27.5-inch” panel size that enables installers to create a 55-inch diagonal area that will work with any standard LCD VESA mount. The size allows the end user to work in a standard 16:9 aspect ratio and create pixel to pixel HD and 4K solutions. While just as simple to install and run as an LCD video wall, the Acclaim Series brings a complete focus to the screen without the distraction of gaps seen on LCD walls, allowing it to deliver clear and unbroken imagery.

Fitch Electronics and JBL CBT speakers at the CP Palm Beach Masters!


The CP Palm Beach Masters, presented by Sovaro™, is a leg of the Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping North American League, which began in August 2016 and spans across seven east and seven west coast venues in three countries: the United States, Mexico and Canada. A total of 14 athletes from the new Longines FEI World Cup™ North American league will qualify for this year’s prestigious Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Final, which will take place in Omaha, NE.

When it came to selecting a speaker for the Taylor Harris Club (a 300’ long two story VIP tent) at the CP Palm Beach Masters in Wellington FL, ascetics as well as sound quality lead us to the JBL CBT series. Having used these line array column speakers in church and school installs I knew it was the right choice for this job. The CBT 50 LA 1 in white blended in perfectly with the decor of the tent. We made a custom mounting bracket out of aluminum so we could hang 36 of the speakers from the structure of the tent. Using white speaker cable we were able to hide the wire in the troth of the upright column support of the tent. As we started to install the speakers in the tent we were getting very positive comments from the officials on how good the speakers looked and how well they blended in. and this was before we ever fired them up. This was a 4 day event with the big class on the last day. On the last day we had Johnny Rez from the Voice sing the National Anthem and before the jump off he sang one song. The comments from the audience in the tent were wow that sounded good, followed by where are the speakers? When the speakers were pointed out to them, they asked if the speakers were just added. They were there all week?  Its comments like this that makes our job worthwhile.

We were booked for next year’s event and are already planning on adding more JBL speakers to the outside of the tent. – Bill Fitch – Fitch Electronics Inc.
