SAN ANTONIO, TX--Originally built in 1926, the Aztec Theater, an acknowledged Meso-American fantasy world come to life, is a premier destination in San Antonio’s restored RiverWalk section.

SDR Specialties was called in for the project, working in tandem with architect Steven Durr Design and consultant Drury Southwest. A comprehensive design and build, the project required exceptional awareness and sensitivity of the Theater’s historical status in terms of a compact, efficient and unobtrusive installation.When it came to the equipment infrastructure for this complex project, Steve Hennig of SDR chose Middle Atlantic Products without a moment’s hesitation. Asked why, he says “I chose Middle Atlantic because of their reputation for quality. I’ve been using their products for years because they’re well made, always up to code, and all of the details are right, like the holes always line up perfectly, which can be very important. Their products are always right on the money.

“The challenge for the Aztec Theater project was that every time we had to drill a hole or change anything, we had to make sure that we maintained the authentic look and preserved all of the wall treatments from the original theater, something the client was very particular about.”

The sophisticated AV system integrates seamlessly with the historic venue and includes Extron AV distribution amps; Yorkville YSM2P studio monitors; an Aphex Dominator 720 peak limiter; a Crestron CP2E control processor; an Extron ISS 506 switcher and a Tascam DV-DO1U video player; Sony HVR Z5U handheld cameras and Sony BRCH 700 remote controlled cameras.

Asked to sum up the project, Hennig concluded, “ Bottom line, Middle Atlantic equipment was in integral part of our successful completion of this project. The company offers broader and more diverse configuration of products, which distinguishes them from their competition. This project required a unique design and unique product set only they could offer.”
