The historic Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie, also known as the De Munt Theatre, has upgraded its entire staff communications infrastructure based on intercom equipment from Riedel Communications. Consisting of the Artist digital matrix intercom, Bolero wireless intercom in both integrated and standalone modes, and SmartPanel multifunctional user interfaces, the Riedel solution surpasses the theater’s requirements for highly flexible, reliable, high-quality, and future-proof intercom operations.
Located in the heart of Brussels at the Place de la Monnaie, the De Munt Theatre is one of the most prestigious opera houses in the world and the largest in Belgium, with more than 450 employees. Over its 300-year history, the theater has survived a revolution, a fire, and two world wars, as well as the normal passage of time and evolution of technology. The Riedel upgrade was part of a massive renovation project that closed the De Munt Theatre for two years beginning in 2016.

Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship (OCBF) was founded in 1976 by renowned pastor and author Dr. Tony Evans. Since those early days, the upward trajectory of the church in Dallas has blossomed it into a mission-driven mega-church with nearly 10,000 congregants. The venue seats around 3,280 people, shaped in a semi-circle, with large balconies and unobstructed sight lines. But as time passes, so too does the efficiency of audio components while the need for increased acoustical quality grows. The bottom line: the old equipment was outdated and no longer up to par. Along with upgrades to its lighting and video systems, installed by master AVL integration firm Clair Solutions, the church determined its best path forward to meet current and future needs was to install the best, most state-of-the-art, sound reinforcement system on the market. That’s where Clair Brothers comes in.
“The existing system was installed in 1995, and many of its parts were failing. Even when it worked properly, it wasn’t meeting the needs of OCBF’s more contemporary services,” explains Mike Mason, regional vice president for Clair Solutions’ Dallas office. “When it originally went in, the major requirement was speech reinforcement – most of the music was delivered via organ and choir. What they needed was a brand-new system that would take them to the technological cutting-edge, so they made the decision to gut everything and essentially start over.”

As a group of people on a faith journey, aligning themselves with Christ and His Word to make a difference for God’s glory, Crosstowne Church enables people to become learners, lovers, and leaders in their relationship with Jesus Christ and in the world around them. The nondenominational church recently upgraded its projection setup. This resulted in the deployment of EK-815U WUXGA (1920×1200) laser projectors, which were drawn from the catalog of Eiki International, Inc. of Rancho Santa Margarita, CA.
Southern Media Systems, Inc. of Charleston, an AV design / build firm and equipment dealer servicing the worship, government, and commercial markets, was contracted to handle the facility upgrade. David Major, the company’s owner, oversees Southern Media Systems’ sales, marketing, and installation operations. After consulting with church management to learn their goals and expectations, he penned a design that called for three EK-815U projectors outfitted with AH-A21010 lenses. He discussed the project and his reasons for selecting Eiki projection technology.
