D.A.S. AUDIO LOUDSPEAKERS HELP DELIVER THE MESSAGE AT SOUTH BISCAYNE CHURCH

In Install News by tfwm

Solid throw, wide horizontal dispersion, plus vocal and music clarity characterize new system attributes

South_Biscayne_ChurchSouth Biscayne Church is a faith and Bible believing, Southern Baptist Convention church that offers a high energy, always exciting worship experience for all ages. Bringing quality audio and video functionality to the church’s worship experience was a particularly challenging endeavor because the space was originally developed as a shopping center and, hence, not optimized for its current purpose. With careful planning and the right equipment however, services are a vibrant, contemporary experience—thanks in no small part to the sonic excellence delivered by loudspeakers drawn from the catalog of Valencia, Spain-based D.A.S. Audio.

GC Pro (Guitar Center Professional Division) of Atlanta, GA—working in conjunction with Tampa, FL-based Event Resource Group—ultimately designed and deployed a sound reinforcement system at the church utilizing D.A.S. Event 208A 3-way active line arrays, Event 218A dual 18-inch powered subwoofers, Action M12A 2-way powered stage monitors, and a DSP-26 stereo / mono processor for loudspeaker management. GC Pro Account Manager Brad Lyons engineered a fully comprehensive upgrade plan for South Biscayne Church’s FOH and stage audio, broadcast audio, video for IMAG (image magnification), and broadcast video. He discussed the project and his reasons for selecting D.A.S. Audio.

For the A/V upgrade, First Presbyterian called on systems integrator Audio & Light of Greensboro and system designer Curtis Kasefang of Theatre Consultants Collaborative, based in Chapel Hill, NC. The renovation took two years to complete; the first post-renovation service was held Sunday, December 21, 2014.

Designed in the Southern French Gothic style, the sanctuary is in the traditional form of a cross. It presents a 160-foot-long center aisle and an 85-foot ceiling with lots of angles, as well as dual lofts with pews, a rear balcony that is 33 feet above the floor, multiple alcoves, a pair of 64-foot-long transepts, and plenty of glass and hard surfaces.

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.
