Qatar’s Coptic Church Reaches All the Way Back with Renkus-Heinz ICONYX

In Install News by admin

untitledAs the only church of its kind in Qatar, St. Peter & St. Paul Coptic Orthodox Church is a unique landmark in the capital city of Doha. It also represented a unique acoustic challenge for Maged Amin, Head of Design – Audiovisual, for leading regional systems integrator Techno Q. With high ceilings, an interior constructed largely of marble, a mezzanine level, and a 50 foot (15m) dome near the building’s entrance, St. Peter & St. Paul was beyond the reach of ordinary loudspeaker technology.

Begun in 2013, the design and creation of the audio system within St. Peter & St. Paul Coptic Orthodox Church has drawn on the determination and skill of all involved. For Techno Q, and for Amin in particular, the project required great patience, as ideas that were proposed at the very beginning were left waiting until the church was ready to move forwards. Nevertheless, throughout the long development, Amin’s opinion remained steadfast – with the church facing acoustic problems that would render a regular system unusable, the best solution was the Iconyx digitally steered array from Renkus-Heinz.

bridgepoint-chroma-q-inspire-copyright-pendley-productionsBridgePoint Church in St. Petersburg, Florida has set the goal of reaching the entire St. Petersburg peninsula by planting ten campuses over ten years. To achieve this, BridgePoint needs to be relevant to the community and fully enable their volunteers. Jands Vista lighting control systems and Chroma-Q® Inspire™ house lighting, recommended and installed by Pendley Productions (based in Cumming, Georgia) – and supplied by A.C. Lighting Inc. – are playing a role in achieving this goal.

Ensuring that volunteers are well equipped to work in any of their production spaces is a priority to BridgePoint. “We wanted to equip our spaces with the same control system, to have consistency with lighting,” states Michael McBride, lighting associate at BridgePoint. “We wanted to be able to start small, but build upon the lighting system as we grow. But we also wanted a system that is easy for volunteers to learn and operate – we want to focus on the volunteers, not on the gear.” Vista was the ideal system to meet these goals.
