CHURCH INDIAN TRAIL
WORSHIP TECHNOLOGY IN ACTION
HOUSE OF WORSHIP AV SYSTEMS
CO-DA has enjoyed a long history with FBCIT – Let’s recap some of our projects together.
First, we upgraded the Front of House Audio Console. With the expansion of the main stage and the growth of both the choir and orchestra, they were in desperate need of a new audio control system. We selected the Allen & Heath DLive series S7000 for the front-of-house and later added the C2500 for Monitor Mix. These consoles employ the use of several DM 64 and 32 input devices that are located behind the stage area in a dedicated room so as to be out of sight. DSpP processing and control are driven by QSC Qsys system with several I/O 8 flex devices and expansion units connected and programmed.
A new sound system was needed due to non-other than a lighting strike! After several days of consultation with several speaker manufacturers and the music and technical staff, the decision was made to go with Meyer Sound speakers for the mains, monitors, choir, and fills. Subs were also proud-based under the stage and Meyer Sound MM4s were used as front fills and choirs monitors with great success.
Another undertaking was to replace the projectors. For this swap, we chose Panasonic 15K lumen laser projectors fired on Draper permanent mount screens that were set out from the wall by 8” to allow for up and down lighting to be used in close proximity to the screens. These are maintenance-free and have a long-lasting performance at a great price.
Later, we were approached about adding a video wall backdrop to the stage. For this, we used Absen LED with 2.54pp in a 6’ tall by 20’ wide format. This was driven by ProVideoPlayer from Renewed vision.
Studio upgrades were needed to support the broadcast. We integrated Panasonic PTZ cameras with controllers. These cameras and computer graphics are fed into a Ross Carbonite 2 M/E switcher and then broadcast through the facility through the use of AJA Kumo video routing and audio embedding. AJA devices are also used at each viewing screen. Marshall Video products provide accurate engineering of cameras and Panasonic CCU controls are used for each camera.
