PURESOUND ENLISTS RF SPOTLIGHT ANTENNA TO FIGHT INTERFERENCE

HOUSTON, TEXAS – MARCH 2013: On any given Sunday, the only thing packed tighter than a Houston megachurch’s pews is the radio frequency spectrum surrounding them. Today’s worship services are high-tech and high stakes – with pastors, musicians, and support staff relying on an increasing number of wireless audio devices to ensure each service goes smoothly for thousands of the faithful – and a potential nightmare for sound professionals responsible for delivering crystal-clear wireless audio.

No one knows this better than Wes Matthew, owner of Houston’s Puresound, a large provider of church audio/visual installations, rentals and sales. “Churches are going wireless with everything now,” said Wes. “Wireless nursery pagers, walkies, in-ears, instruments, hearing assistance, parking lot aids, security, and, of course, microphones.”

Even thirty miles outside the city, Wes discovered his RF scans at the church were consistently full. “I could never find an open frequency,” he remembered. “So I ended up just picking the least crowded channel and hoped for the best.”

For his installation, each room had seven lavaliers and a handheld wireless microphone fed to Sennheiser ew 100 G3 receivers with basic whip antennas. “After extensive troubleshooting, no matter what we did, we were still getting signal dropouts and hit with interference,” Wes said. “We dropped the RF Spotlight on the stage, and the mics have been solid. I haven’t gotten a call in the six months since the installation.” Chris Regan of RF Venue commented, “More and more devices are competing for less and less spectrum, so we designed the RF Spotlight to deliver spectrum efficiency to any brand of wireless system. We’re happy to be working with Wes and his clients to enable reliable performance under the toughest RF conditions.”

The RF Spotlight is designed to be placed on the floor or under a stage to optimize reception for nearby wireless microphones or IEMs, but minimize reception of unwanted devices outside of its local field. In churches, hotels and convention centers where multiple wireless systems operate simultaneously, the RF Spotlight enables wireless operators to increase the number of open frequencies available, lower transmitter power for longer battery life, and dramatically improve signal-to-noise ratio at the receiver.

ABOUT RF VENUE RF Venue manufactures wireless audio equipment including remote antennas, RF distribution equipment, and cable assemblies. The company’s primary antenna products include the interference mitigating RF Spotlight, the lightweight foldable helical antenna CP Beam, and the polarization diversity antenna dubbed Diversity Fin.

The company provides turnkey services for an extensive list of worship, theater, and commercial clients. The company specializes in digital audio system design, video projection and distribution, as well as stage theatrical lighting and control trussing.

TANGLES TAMED AT OKLAHOMA CHURCH WITH SYMETRIX JUPITER 12 AND JUPITER 8 APP BASED TURN-KEY DSP

OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA – MARCH 2013: Since its founding during the hard dustbowl years, Oklahoma City’s Southwest Church of Christ has grown steadily in membership. A series of buildings and sanctuaries of ever-growing capacity trace a path from the church’s first meeting, which took place in a member’s living room, to its modern 700-plus-seat sanctuary. Although only a decade old, Southwest Church of Christ’s latest building quickly amassed an ad hoc collection of sound reinforcement equipment that strained the capacity of the technician’s booth and often flummoxed the volunteer technicians who attempted to use it. Hoping to maintain its functionality while greatly simplifying the user interface, the church contacted Robert Rogers, senior design consultant with Audio Video Designs (AVD) of nearby Moore, Oklahoma. AVD used a cost-effective Symetrix Jupiter 12 app based turn-key DSP to replace all of the analog clutter. The church was so pleased with the improvement that they asked AVD to integrate their three fellowship halls, and AVD obliged using a Symetrix Jupiter 8 running the Sound Reinforcement #6 app configured to do room combining.

“The audio booth was cluttered with consoles, switches, and dials, with a few computers and screens thrown in for good measure,” explained Jeff Brocaw, design consultant with AVD. “They just kept adding on as new needs presented themselves. Not only was the sanctuary system controlled from the booth, so too were the more modest systems in the three fellowship halls.” Because the input sources and loudspeakers were all still in fine shape, AVD was able to leave them in place. However, new Crown and ElectroVoice four-channel amplifiers now power the system.

“Of course, money was a huge factor, and the Symetrix Jupiter 12 DSP was the logical choice,” said Brocaw. “We could eliminate all that clutter with the processing power in that single rack space unit, and they wouldn’t have to spend $20K on a digital console.” The twelve inputs of the Jupiter 12 collect outputs from all of the stage microphones, as well as from video playback devices and a pair of ambient microphones for use in recording. The Jupiter 12’s four outputs send signal to the main sanctuary system, the three fellowship halls, and a computer-based recorder, as well as hallways and other areas of the building. One of the outputs is currently unused and awaits future expansion.

Partly because there are a lot of open microphones on stage, Brocaw used the “Gating Automixer” app with the Jupiter 12. The gates effectively eliminate feedback problems that the church was having with the old system. For Sunday service, the system operator makes adjustments from a computer running the Symetrix Jupiter software. “Now it takes very little effort to run a service,” said Fred Lowery, with the church. “When needed, we mix from within the app. For the simpler Wednesday service, the pastor can make any necessary adjustments from a Symetrix ARC-2e wall panel remote. He doesn’t even have to turn on the computer! The church fell in love with the simplicity of the new Jupiter-based system.”

In fact, they were so pleased that they requested a similar transformation of the ad hoc room combining system that they had constructed. With eight inputs, eight outputs, and an app easily-made to perform room-combining (Sound Reinforcement #6) the Symetrix Jupiter 8 was the obvious cost-effective solution. “As with the Jupiter 12, the Jupiter 8’s interface is sufficiently simple that church staff and volunteers can use it reliably,” said Brocaw. “That simplicity, together with processing power and affordability, made the Jupiter 8 the right choice.”

The Symetrix Jupiter 8 takes its inputs from each of the fellowship halls, and sends outputs back to each of the fellowship halls. Additionally, three hard disc recorders stand ready to capture events that take place in the fellowship halls. Users execute room combining by opening the matrix from within the Jupiter software application. Any input can be sent to any output, and by incorporating input from and outputs to the main sanctuary system, all four rooms can be combined in any desired configuration.

ENTASYS Helps Bring Modern Technology to Historic Church

The rolling hills and fertile farmlands along the Delaware River were among the first to be settled by European colonists, and the area is rich in historic buildings and landmarks. Among them is Alexandria First Presbyterian Church, whose main sanctuary was built in the late 1800s, and is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.

Despite being one of the older buildings in the area, Alexandria First Presbyterian is all modern on the inside, thanks to a sophisticated audio and video system designed and installed by Blackwood, NJ-based JD Sound and Video. The system includes distributed HD video, with multiple screens throughout, as well as a sound system featuring Community Professional Loudspeakers’ ENTASYS column arrays and VLF Series subwoofers.

“It’s not a large building, and it’s not very ornate,” says JD Sound’s Joe DiSabatino. “But they’ve invested wisely with the technology they’ve installed.”

As DiSabatino explains, the building’s old stone walls and hard surfaces make for a highly reflective acoustical environment, and achieving good spoken word intelligibility has long been a challenge. “It’s a large, boxy room with high ceilings, hard plaster walls, and lots of hard wood,” says DiSabatino. “It sounds great for the choir, but not for the sermon.”

JD Sound recommended a pair of Community ENTASYS column loudspeakers to cover the entire space. “We set up a temporary system for them to use during a service, and they were immediately convinced,” says DiSabatino.

The church uses quite a bit of music in their program, and DiSabatino recommended a pair of VLF208 subwoofers to fill out the frequency range. “We built the subs into the altar, underneath the stage,” he says. “They provide just that little bit of extra low end and kick.”

The ENTASYS also addressed the church’s aesthetic concerns. “The columns are painted to match the walls, and are barely visible,” says DiSabatino. Crown amps power the system, and a Rane HAL system provides DSP and enables the church to make multi-channel recordings of their services, with an eye toward webcasting in the future.

The church’s previous system, a pair of Community CSX loudspeakers, has been repurposed. “The kids have a gathering spot down in the basement, and the original Community system is still working fine, so it was perfect for that,” says DiSabatino.

“The ENTASYS system was the perfect solution,” DiSabatino concludes. “Coverage is consistent to every seat, even under the balcony, and we’ve got far more gain before feedback. And they sound terrific.”

Yamaha CL Premium Rack and Familiarity Key Factors For Youth Event

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Held in late January 2013 at the Pheasant Run Convention Center in St. Charles, Illinois, Willow Creek Community Church hosted Blast 13 a youth group retreat for approximately 1,400, produced by the Willow Creek Student Impact Ministry, with audio support provided by TC Furlong (Chicago).

One Yamaha CL5 digital audio console accompanied by two Rio3224-D input/output racks were used at front of house with a CL1 selected for monitor mixing along with two ProPlex Gigabit switches for network redundancy. “Network redundancy was important because of the high-profile nature of the event,” states Chris Wintz, Rental Manager, TC Furlong. “The crew at Willow Creek likes to have backup/redundant systems whenever possible.”

”Since the CL5 was already specified as the front of house console after the Willow Creek team attended a demo, and challenged with keeping the monitor mix area to a small footprint yet needing a system with ample mix buses, the CL1 was a one-stop solution,” says Wintz. “In the 13 years with have collaborated with the Willow Creek team, this was one of the most streamlined solutions we’ve put together.”

“We decided on the CL system for a number of reasons,” states Nathan Miller, Systems Designer/Engineer, Miller Audio Services (Chicago), audio contractor for the event (assisted by systems engineer Matt Satorius). “One factor was the ability to use the Premium Rack Portico plug-ins. We used the Portico 5033 EQ and 5043 Compression on the lead vocals at both front of house and monitors. We also used the U-76 plug-in at front of house across the drum bus as well as the Opt-2A plug-in to add a mastered sound to the IEM mix busses at monitors. The other major factor was the overall efficiency of the setup and strike. Switching to a digital snake really helped make the overall load in/load out easier. Not only were the FOH/MON runs much cleaner, but the split was much cleaner and easier to troubleshoot.”

Miller said the CL5s were easy to operate by event engineers Stephen Kendeigh and Ryan Pribyl due to console familiarity since the pair use Yamaha consoles for regular youth services. “Blast 2013 represented a major step forward not only in our audio system architecture, but in the overall sound quality of the event,” states Troy Bartholomew, Technical Director for the ministry who oversaw all of the production for the event. “Nathan’s choice of the CL Series streamlined our setup while giving us more features and flexibility than we have had in past events. Also, Ryan and Stephen’s ability to utilize the fantastic new features really elevated the audio experience for all of our students. Throughout the weekend, I received a lot of positive feedback from industry veterans, audio contractors, and Willow production staff who were able to come in and listen to the system.”

One of the largest churches in the U.S. with an attendance of 20,000 on any given weekend, Willow Creek regularly host retreats for youth and adults for their congregation. This particular event featured guest presenters along with a church house band of seven musicians and vocalists. For more information on Willow Creek, visit www.willowcreek.org.

Yamaha CL5 is the Cornerstone of Detroit Metro Church

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Cornerstone Baptist Church in Roseville, Michigan recently upgraded from analog to digital when it installed a Yamaha CL5 Digital Audio Console and two Rio 3224-Ds input/output racks. The church seats 2,000 and has a congregation of 1,300 with a blended worship consisting of full band, orchestra, choir, and worship team.

Sound Planning Communications, Inc. of Redford, Michigan, recommended the new CL determining it would be an ideal fit for the church upgrade. “The church required 72 inputs but price played a key factor as well,” states Nathan J. Cole, Director of Sales, Sound Planning. The system was installed with an integrated Waves plug-in package including Vocal Rider, C6, Bass Rider, and Renaissance De-esser.

“We have used Sound Planning for the past few years on several different projects, and they have always been great,” states Josh Scott, church TD. “Nathan Cole has always done a wonderful job helping us figure out what we need and meeting our budget. We had been looking towards purchasing a new console for about two years, and in addition to 72 inputs, we needed at least 16 AUX outputs because of our orchestra, choir, band, and other musical events we hold. Initially, we were looking at one that would have cost us $20,000 more than the CL and didn’t have Virtual Sound Check or an iPad app. The day I heard the Yamaha CL5 had been introduced, I called Nathan who told me that it was priced at $20,000 less than the other console we were looking at, and I was astounded!”

Scott said what he noticed right away was how clean everything sounded. “After our first weekend with the new console, I had people coming up to me saying that it was the best it ever sounded. Having the Waves system has helped me put the finishing touches on my mix. Also, not having to consistently re-patch inputs along with the ability to save channel settings has saved us a lot of time and frustration.”

“We have been delighted with the flexibility and intuitive nature of our Yamaha CL5,” adds church Worship Pastor, Dr. Nathan Platt. “The console is easy to navigate from the broadest spread of instrumentation we employ to the simplest public speaking setup. The CentraLogic section of the board is so user-friendly for sound operators who serve less frequently on our technical team, and the ability to save extensive presets has proved exceedingly helpful, as has the constant use of the iPad for operation outside the sound booth. We have been so pleased with the “bells and whistles” afforded us by Yamaha’s VCM technology and the freedom to employ various Waves effects, be it for compression, equalization enhancement, or signal clarification. These effects have made a world of difference with respect to the refinement of all our mic’ing.”

“The combined digital workflow improvements, sound quality, noise reduction, Virtual Soundcheck, and digital effects have the church thrilled with the CL installation,” Cole says. “Now that they have become more knowledgeable about Dante, they are excited and looking forward to future upgrades of their DSP using full Dante networking as well as wireless systems directly tying into the Dante network.”
