In home_page, Install News, Uncategorized by Chris Hardin

With its goal of following in the Spirit of God and the footsteps of Jesus, St. Paul’s Wolf’s ECC (Evangelical Covenant Church) gathers to enable and equip people to impact lives for Christ. Offering programs for adults, youth, children, involvement in a food bank, as well as a program to help the homeless, the church has numerous opportunities for its members to get involved. St. Paul’s Wolf’s recently completed a substantial overhaul of its AV infrastructure, which in addition to a new sound reinforcement system also included new projection capability. On the video side of the equation, the church is now equipped with projection technology drawn from the catalog of Rancho Santa Margarita, CA-based Eiki International, Inc.

Reynolds AV of East Berlin, PA, a full-service design / build AV firm specializing in audio, video, and lighting services, was contracted to design and deploy the church’s new AV equipment. Karl Reynolds, the firm’s Project Manager, coordinates system design, project management, plus customer training and service for the company. After consulting with church management to determine their goals and requirements for the facility upgrade, Reynolds elected to install an Eiki EK-811W, 8,000 lumen WXGA DLP® laser projector to handle visuals in the sanctuary. He discussed the project and his reasons for installing Eiki projection technology.

In Audio, home_page, Install News, Uncategorized by Chris Hardin

Tasked with bringing the supernatural power of God to this generation of worshippers, King Jesus International Ministry was founded by Apostle Guillermo Maldonado and his wife Prophet Ana Maldonado. Today, the ministry has a global reach that extends throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.

He is responsible for all production and the related technical disciplines at King Jesus Ministry facilities, including a 6000-person sanctuary, a 14,000-square foot TV studio, a University, and more.

Danley Loudspeakers, Subs, and Amps/DSP Installed at Maryland’s Lighthouse Church

In Audio, home_page, Install News by Chris Hardin

Founded at the turn of the century – this century, Lighthouse Church in Maryland has been growing apace since the day it opened the doors at its original, 24,000 square-foot building. To accommodate the demand, the church opened satellite campuses and continually expanded the number of weekend services offered, but it was never enough. Thus, Lighthouse Church recently moved its flagship services to a new 74,000 square-foot building in Glen Burnie, Maryland. Solsound, a Maryland-based A/V integration and production firm that had worked with Lighthouse Church in the past, designed and installed a distributed Danley Sound Labs sound reinforcement system that includes Danley SH (Synergy Horn) loudspeakers, SM speakers, GO2 compact loudspeakers, TH (Tapped Horn) subwoofers, and DNA multichannel amplifiers with onboard DSP and Danley model processing templates.

With Fewer Boxes, Danley Sound Labs Revitalizes First Baptist Church of Ashland, Virginia

In Audio, home_page, Install News, Uncategorized by Chris Hardin

Ashland Baptist Church was organized by fifteen members on August 20, 1858. That first meeting was held in the Union Meeting House, currently the Masonic Hall on England Street, and served as the worship center until the dedication of the new church on Railroad Avenue. That “new” church building also served as a hospital during the Civil War. In 1967, the congregation moved to its present location. Since that time, several wings were added including a new sanctuary and fellowship hall to accommodate their growing congregation. When church leaders determined that a new sound reinforcement system was needed to improve intelligibility and musical impact, they also knew that it could not come at the expense of First Baptist’s sanctuary aesthetics. Audio/video integration firm RTW Media designed and installed a Danley Sound Labs system that satisfied both the sonic and visual objectives by minimizing the number of speakers that were required to provide precise, intelligible coverage.
