Decatur, GA––When Messenger Media Systems of Covington, Georgia was called in to do the audio for the New Life Church, the primary challenge was providing a powerful system for a spacious sanctuary on a limited budget.
As Senior Systems Engineer Christopher Bragg, puts it, “The client had purchased an old high school which they used for administrative offices and built a large sanctuary behind it.
“It was a 2,000-seat church and they only had $100,000 for the audio system because they’d spent a lot of money up front for conduits and other infrastructure they didn’t end up using.
“Acoustically, the room is difficult. Lots of straight walls, hard surfaces and we didn’t have the budget for acoustic treatment at that point. That was the main difficulty, working on a small budget for a room that size.?
Continuing, Bragg says, “They wanted an aggressive (ie. loud) system for Gospel more

omniline-web.jpg

Just in time for the Royal Wedding later this month, Westminster Abbey recently commissioned the installation of new speech reinforcement, induction loop and CCTV systems, along with ancillary video, audio and data distribution facilities.

The new systems were designed and specified by Audio & Video Systems Consultants, Michael Hyland & Associates, the project needing to be completed ahead of the thanksgiving service which marked the 450th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth granting a Royal Charter to The Abbey in 1560, not to mention the Royal Wedding.

The upgrade and changeover was implemented so there was no impact whatever on the building’s daily services and various other events for which The Abbey is used. Equally, steps were taken to ensure that the work did not infringe on the many visitors who tour The Abbey daily. Furthermore, given the tight timescale, extensive workshop testing of the system racks was more

cad-hudson-_1.jpg

Hudson United Methodist Church has 400 active parishioners and, like many of today’s houses of worship, has two services on Sunday, a traditional service with piano and organ and a more contemporary presentation with electric instruments.

As such, they needed a microphone that could effectively accommodate live reinforcement and recording with exceptional reproduction. As Musical Director Leigh Conti explains, “We had done a number of recordings of the choir and organ and other instrumental situations, and we weren’t getting a full spectrum of sound. There was no bass, it was very tinny sounding and give us an accurate portrayal of what was actually going on.?

Fortunately Conti found a solution in the Astatic 1700VP Remote Variable Pattern, boom mounted microphone. As Leigh points out, “I spoke to (Astatic National Sales Manager) Gary Dixon and he suggested the 1700VP Remote Variable Pattern microphone, which was mainly for the purpose more
