Community Announces Video Contest Winners

CHESTER, PA--Community Professional Loudspeakers has announced the winners of their first annual Online Video Contest.

The contest offered users the opportunity to create a short video about their favorite Community product or application, or to profile an installation they were particularly proud of. First announced in December 2009, the contest gained considerable interest during the 2010 NAMM Show in Anaheim in January 2010.

After reviewing a wide range of entries, the Grand Prize was awarded to Joe DiSabatino of JD Sound and Video in Chews Landing, NJ. DiSabatino's installation profile of the Church of the Incarnation in Mantua, NJ featured four Community SLS920 three-way cabinets, augmented by a single SBS22 subwoofer. DiSabatino was awarded a full Community Professional system that included a pair of S-Series S-3294 12-inch, three way, full-range systems and two S-Series S-215S dual 15" subwoofers.

Second Prize went to Charles Hatcher of Alpha Music in Louisburg, WV, whose profile of their recent installation project at the Ritz Theater in Penton, WV also featured the SLS920, along with an SBS45 subwoofer and a pair of i2W8 cabinets for front fill. Hatcher won a system that included two S-Series S-1296 12-inch two-way multi-angle enclosures, along with a pair of CVRS12 nylon padded protective transport covers. Both Hatcher and DiSabbatino also each won a pair of Community T-Shirts.

"We know that Community users are a wide and diverse group, and when we announced our video contest, we expected a wide and diverse range of entries," remarked Julia Lee, Community's Director of Marketing. "Needless to say, we weren't disappointed. Ultimately, we focused more on story telling and enthusiasm than on slick production, and these two entries really reflected what Community's users are all about."
