Situated in the Melbourne’s east, the community at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church was being crowded out by a suburb fast-tracked for urban growth.

Needing to relocate to a quieter location with room to expand, they became aware that a short distance down the road the St. James Uniting Church, with its striking mid-century early modern architecture, was looking to sell.

It looked a perfect fit. A deal was done which duly led to a full-blown renovation of the church, including a sensitive, high quality audio visual fitout in the heritage-listed building. This included a Martin Audio O-Line as the sound reinforcement system.

And they need all of that in an easy-to-use, powerful and cost-effective set up.”

The first plug-and-play endpoint that bridges AVB and Dante® networks, the PreSonus® AVB-D16 16×16 AVB-to-Dante Bridge enables you to send and receive up to 16 audio channels between PreSonus StudioLive® Series III mixers and a Dante network. With one or more AVB-D16s, you can easily integrate PreSonus StudioLive® Series III mixers, NSB-series stage boxes, and EarMix 16M personal monitor mixers with Dante-enabled DSPs and other Dante-enabled products, such as PreSonus CDL-12 constant directivity loudspeakers.

The AVB-D16 supports AVB audio at 44.1 and 48 kHz and Dante audio at 44.1, 48, 88.2, and 96 kHz. Built-in asynchronous sample-rate conversion ensures that the AVB-D16 provides precision clock isolation between the AVB and Dante networks for pristine, clear audio with no dropouts or artifacts. This also allows you to run different sample rates on the AVB and Dante networks, so even if you’re operating a Dante network at 96 kHz, you can still connect streams between your StudioLive Series III AVB network operating at 48 kHz with total confidence that the audio will be clean and error free.

It is a ‘no compromises’ tool, perfectly adapted to the current event landscape and, when paired with K1 and K2, is quickly and powerfully scalable for large-capacity events.”
