Since the 1990s, Sydney’s Darlinghurst Theatre Company have provided a forum for actors, writers and producers to express themselves on the professional stage. Proud champions of independent, sustainable theatre practice, they were chosen by the City of Sydney to be the managing company of the newly established Eternity Playhouse in Darlinghurst.
The P.A. People design and install audio and video systems tailored to the needs of modern learning facilities. One such solution is NCH TimeChimes which The P.A. People have installed in hundreds of schools. NCH TimeChimes is a user friendly program that can be loaded onto an existing PC and then interfaced with the PA system. No more boring bells, you can load any wave file you need - even the school song!
TimeChimes works using a list of times during the day when sounds will be played. Each day of the week can have its own list of times and sounds. You can also customise the timetable for a 2 week cycle, altering the schedule for each week.
The various features include:
- Plays bells, chimes or any other sounds at pre-set times.
- Can schedule times for automatic play on each day of the week.
- Easy editing and update of schedules.
- Includes 9 pre-recorded bell type sounds.
- Supports other wav and mp3 formats if you wish to customise bell sounds.
- Easy to use for day to day operations.
