Genelec Helps Take Kenneth Copeland Ministries On the Road in Hi-Def

— New remote production truck is equipped with a 5.1 surround array of Genelec 8130A Digtal Monitors and a SE7261A subwoofer to match the Genelec monitoring in place at the ministries’ own post-production facility —

NATICK, MA, May 6, 2013 — Kenneth Copeland Ministries recently rolled out its first high-definition remote production truck, fitted with a 5.1 surround sound monitoring array from Genelec, the world’s longstanding pioneer in active monitoring. The system consists of 8130A Digital Monitors and an SE7261A Active DSP subwoofer, part of the Genelec GLM.SE™ system with AutoCal™ Self-Calibration System, which is used to optimize the monitoring array in the truck’s audio area. The new remote production vehicle travels to ministry events, recording the messages for broadcast, streaming and post-production media such as DVDs and MP3 downloads.

The Genelec monitors aboard the new truck also serve to create a seamless and consistent monitoring environment in conjunction with the ministries’ Audio Production Suite, designed by the Russ Berger Design Group and located on the Ministries’ 1,200-acre campus in Ft. Worth, Texas. There, three Genelec 1037C Tri-amplified Monitors form the L-C-R array, supported by four Genelec 1032A Active 2-way audio monitors for the surrounds. (These are used in two pairs; one set is aimed at the audio operator and the other at the producer/client seating.) The post facility also utilizes a Genelec 7073A Active Subwoofer. The truck is also used as a control room when the Copelands record broadcasts at the ministries’ television studio on the campus; the vehicle is housed in a neighboring truck bay that is connected via fiber to the facility.

“We now have complete consistency of monitoring throughout our production chain, from remote truck to home base,” observes Ralph Robb, Senior Audio Engineer at Kenneth Copeland Ministries. Robb says the Genelec 8130A’s offer him a monitoring experience that is superior to other monitors. “The Genelecs are a professional tool that are excellent for letting me hear the nuances in the sound,” he says. “This is all about the voice, the spoken word, the message, and my ability to separate it from any distracting sound or noise around it. When Mr. and Mrs. Copeland speak in a large arena or hall, the PA system is going to get into the recording. We use lavaliere microphones, but they are omnidirectional – they give us a smoother overall response, but they also pick up more sound from the room. I need to be able to carve the frequencies we don’t want out of the recording, and the Genelecs are better at that than any other speaker.”
