Pantano Christian Church Improves Music And Message Focus With L-Acoustics ARCS WIDE/FOCUS

Congregants praise new loudspeaker solution for its impact and intelligibility

Pantano3In today’s high-technology climate, the challenge facing many dynamic Houses of Worship is to maintain congregation engagement. At Tucson’s Pantano Christian Church (PCC), half of weekend services feature modern Christian rock, yet worshipers were regularly voicing they couldn’t properly hear the music or the message.

Nearly two years ago, when a new pastoral team stepped into leadership at PCC, they declared an upgrade to the worship spaces’ audio, video and lighting systems a top priority, and HOW systems integrator CCI Solutions was called in to specify and install an L-Acoustics ARCS “WIFO” (WIDE/FOCUS) loudspeaker system.

Todd Gathany, CCI’s senior systems consultant on the Pantano project, faced a difficult obstacle: the worship space actually consists of three distinct spaces. The main sanctuary has adjoining gymnasiums with their own bleachers in the back on both sides – with floating air walls separating them from the big room. The walls are moved to the sides for major events, opening the facility to a capacity of 2,000. Gathany notes, “The new PA that we designed had to work for all three spaces individually, but then had to easily come together to cover the entire space as one in a very cohesive way so the experience would be similar regardless of what room you’re in.”

Hollywood Sound, Powersoft, Symetrix and Yamaha bring Dante Networking alive at Temple Israel of Hollywood

In Install News by tfwm

b74dd15d-592c-416d-aa36-d186e02a2490Established in 1926, Temple Israel of Hollywood continues to be a beacon for Reform Jewish traditions and values. Today this multi-purpose cultural and worship centre hosts an increasingly diverse selection of events, with many taking place in its principal venue – the exquisitely-appointed Miller Hall.

The fully-equipped 5,000 sqft. ballroom stages a mix of live performances, cinema screenings and religious services. Clients are able to make use of an impressive AV infrastructure comprising over 200 channels of low-latency audio – which was recently the subject of a substantial overhaul courtesy of Hollywood Sound Systems (HSS).

The firm’s Brett M. Grossman served as digital systems design/programming lead on the project, and recalls that Temple Israel approached HSS with the core concept of “updating the digital technologies involved and moving forward with a networking infrastructure based around Audinate’s Dante networking” – the regular need to reconfigure the layout and change the mix position according to event type effectively demanding a flexible networking solution. Now, every physical input and output is individually addressable, while remaining space-efficient and allowing for the possibility of future expansion.

To meet the project’s unique requirements, Hollywood Sound Systems set about devising a system based around products from three familiar, Dante-integrating brands: Symetrix, Powersoft and Yamaha.
