AVIOM’S PRO64® SYSTEM HELPS PREPARE FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF CABOT FOR BROADCAST OF WORSHIP SERVICES

CABOT, AR, OCTOBER 19, 2009 — When the time comes for First Baptist Church of Cabot to begin broadcasting its services, it will be ready to go, thanks in part to its new Aviom digital snakes (WFX Booth 1124). Utilizing both Pro64® and Pro16® Series equipment from Aviom, the system gives the church a hybrid analog-digital network that supports the flexibility it’s looking for to support its expanding programs.

With plans to broadcast through a local digital cable channel in the near future as well as their need to send a televised signal to a separate worship venue on their campus, the church installed a broadcast booth to collect video signals from the four Sony studio cameras stationed throughout the sanctuary as well as a separate console to handle the audio. In order to accomplish this, the church needed a way to get more flexibility from its existing analog system that would also help transition it into working with digital audio and video.

The existing analog system takes inputs from the stage to an analog patchbay in the sound booth. First Baptist installed two Aviom Pro64 6416m Mic Input Modules and two Pro16 AN-16/i-M Mic Input Modules. Thirty-two channels from the patchbay are connected to the Pro16 modules, which feature a built-in passive splitter. These splits are connected to the analog inputs on the Yamaha LS9 used for mixing front of house. A digital copy of these signals is also sent from the AN-16/i-M modules, via Cat-5, to the broadcast booth, which is outfitted with a second LS9. Two Pro16 Aviom AN-16/o v.4 Output Modules provide analog inputs to the LS9.

The remaining inputs from the patchbay in the sound booth are connected to the 6416m modules, which feed both consoles digitally, via Cat-5. Each console is equipped with two Aviom 6416Y2 A-Net® Cards. Designed to operate as a self-sufficient entity, the broadcast booth is also complete with a server to store the video and audio inputs

The front of house console also prepares monitor mixing feeds, which are sent to Aviom Personal Mixers via one 6416Y2 card and an ASI A-Net Systems Interface module. Musicians monitor using Shure E3 in-ear monitors.

The ease of use and flexibility of the Aviom equipment makes it possible for church volunteers less familiar with the audio world to operate the system without a lot of training, easily make changes, while also providing them with a sound setup that is broadcast-quality.

“Like most churches, we have a lot of volunteers who work as engineers but haven’t had much experience in the digital realm,? says Ken Holland, associate pastor of worship and music at First Baptist Church of Cabot. “The ability to attain a digital/analog hybrid signal and send it in multiple directions is a really big function for us. As long as it continues to do what we expect of it, we’re completely happy.?

Aviom pioneered personal mixing with its Pro16® Monitor Mixing System and continues to break new ground with the revolutionary Pro64® Series of audio networking products. With tens of thousands of products in the field today, Aviom has set the standard for high performance, scalable digital solutions.
