VUE AUDIO MODERNIZES SOUND SYSTEM IN UNITED METHODIST CHURCH OF VISTA

In Web Articles by admin

untitledEstablished in 1954, The United Methodist Church of Vista (UMC Vista) has been committed to serving its community through spoken word, classic and contemporary worship services, and a music program that includes a chancel choir, praise band, hand bell choir and a developing children’s music ministry. When UMC Vista recently decided to improve the sound system in its sanctuary, they called on Sound Image to facilitate the installation of a new audio system built around VUE Audiotechnik loudspeaker systems.

VUE’s i-Class Integrator Systems proved to be the right solution for UMC Vista. Four VUE i-8 Compact Full Range Foreground Systems and two i-2×4.5 Surface-Mount Foreground Systems were hung on the ceiling between the fixtures, directed down toward the congregation seating area. The i-8s and i-2×4.5s provide consistent, even coverage across the congregation area without spilling sound toward the fixtures, causing unwanted sonic reflections.

PixelFLEX offers an artistic expression at Bethel World Outreach Church

In Web Articles by admin

Bethel%20World%20Outreach%20-%20web%201Originally founded in 1984, the Bethel World Outreach Church has seen its ministry grow to where they currently hold worship services in six locations nationwide. As part of this growth, the worship family located in Brentwood, TN, recently underwent a building campaign to expand their ministry even further and in doing so they wished to make LED video a part of their worship services. While attending the WFX tradeshow in Nashville, Senior Pastor James Lowe found his solution for the new facility which was FLEXLite 6.9mm LED video tiles from PixelFLEX.

“With our Bethel Build Campaign underway, we were also about to undertake a month-long sermon series where our pastor wanted to show HD video elements during the message,” began Technical Director Garrett Hestla. “This was something entirely new for us and since we wanted to bring LED video into the new facility as well, we started looking at all the LED video products that could really help deliver an impactful message. I’ve known about PixelFLEX for a while and so after our pastor also met them at WFX, we agreed the FLEXLite 6.9mm would be a great solution for our worship services.”

Mackie DL32R a Perfect Fit for CenterPoint Church

In Product News by admin

untitledLaunched in 2008, CenterPoint Church is a dynamic, fast-growing, nondenominational church that hosts contemporary-style services, including an amplified praise band, along with a wide variety of events, meetings, and other activities. Recently, CenterPoint constructed a small pod-type building that seats 50 or 60 people. Called the Mini Hub, it’s a versatile space with a small stage, great for midweek events and activities, often including music. For this cozy space, the church’s tech team sought an easy-to-use sound system that was versatile, had a small footprint, and offered the features, sound quality, and convenience of state-of-the-art digital technology. CCI Solutions of Olympia, Washington, which designed and installed CenterPoint’s audio and video systems, provided the answer: the Mackie® DL32R rack-mount digital mixer.

The fact that the DL32R fits in just three rackspaces is very important. “We don’t even need outboard processors,” Pastor Cross points out. “For instance, the mixer’s EQ is our only room EQ.” CenterPoint’s DL32R is mounted in a small, custom-built media cabinet with wheels so it can be rolled out for events. Should the console in the main sanctuary fail, the DL32R could be rolled in to replace it. “We mostly use the mixer in our small space but I wouldn’t be afraid to use it in a much larger venue,” insists Cross. The cabinet holds the DL32R, the wireless equipment, and a couple of pullout trays with a laptop. The iPad that runs Mackie’s Master Fader™ control app recharges in the cabinet when not in use.

KV2 Audio, a proven solution for the Romanian Pentecostal Church of God Kitchener

In Web Articles by admin

unspecifiedThe 900-seat church is typical of a church that has no acoustical management. The low ceiling fan shaped room had issues with standing waves, excessive noise from to many early reflections, and lots of bass stored in the corner. To complicate things more, the ceiling is parallel to the floor but the various levels of the flat ceiling helped – only slightly.

As with most typical churches, carpeted floor and padded seating give the room the performance of the room being 50% full when it is empty. What is also typical is that the carpeting and padded seating do enough absorption above 2000Hz that adding more absorption panels to manage the lower frequencies would also mean killing the room even more for congregational signing and any hope for quality acoustical performances. With the reverberation above 2K already less than 1.4 seconds and the frequencies below 1K were almost 2 seconds, there were not too many options available. In this case, it was found that frequency specific diffusion would be the best way to go.

Calvary Chapel South Bay Lifts Up their Sound with QSC WideLine

QVASOUTHBAYPROJECT2

Quiet Voice Audio (QVA) recently performed a major upgrade to the sound system at Calvary Chapel South Bay (CCSB), installing QSC WL3082 WideLine 8 Series Line Arrays with GP 188 and GP 218 Series Subwoofers, and dedicated PLD Series Processing Amplifiers. The line array loudspeaker system, installed in a left, center, right configuration, is designed to support the church’s three Sunday services, featuring a dynamic, contemporary Christian music program, and replace a 20-year-old system.

Jon Bart, QVA’s Owner and Senior Design Engineer, reports that the company has enjoyed a nearly decade-long relationship with Senior Pastor Jeff Gill at CCSB. “Our first few meetings with Pastor Jeff and Worship Leader Kevin Click gave us insight into the scope of the music department’s role in services and also the complexity of the coverage of the 1,700-seat venue,” he says.
