Jünger Audio Helps Bethesda Cathedral Manage Its Audio Loudness Levels

Bethesda Cathedral in eastern Singapore has solved the problem sudden peaks in the volume of its AV presentations by investing in a Jünger Audio LEVEL MAGIC™ two-channel loudness normaliser. The unit has been added to the signal path between the Cathedral’s new Allen & Heath iLive digital mixing system and the distribution patch bay to automatically control the levels on any incoming signal source, regardless of its input level.

Bethesda Cathedral is built over four levels, with a 2000-capacity main sanctuary located on the third floor. This is supplemented by a 600-capacity chapel on the ground floor that is used as an overflow venue if the main sanctuary is full.

The Cathedral’s AV system has to send audio to three locations outside the main sanctuary, including to the overflow hall. Prior to installing the Jünger Audio normaliser, audio levels in the overflow hall were difficult to control, more

SYMETRIX ARC-WEB TECHNOLOGY ALLOWS THE SOUND SYSTEM AT ST. JOAN OF ARC’S CATHOLIC CHURCH TO BE CONTROLLED FROM THE PULPIT ON AN ANDROID

st_joan_arc_church.JPG

BLYTHE, CALIFORNIA – AUGUST 2011: Just paces from the Arizona border in Blythe, California, St. Joan of Arc is not your average Catholic church. Father Henri Licznerski stays ahead of the technological curve, as evidenced by the church’s video system with three screens, several pan/tilt/zoom remote control cameras, and a digital video recording system. The recent addition of several hot condenser mics for the choir with accompanying monitors left the church exposed to a substantial feedback risk, and its multiple mixer locations invited busy fingers – however well-intentioned – to really mess things up. Licznerski called on San Bernardino’s Enko Systems, Inc. to provide a solution. In keeping with St. Joan of Arc’s embrace of technology, Enko’s Dave Chitty installed two Symetrix Jupiter 12 app-based processors and provided control from Licznerski’s Android smartphone via Symetrix’ ground-breaking ARC-WEB technology.

“They previously had no auto mixing at all,” said Chitty. “And more

BUENA PARK, Calif.—Boulevard Professional (Oradell, N.J.) recently installed a NEXO GEO S12 line array system along with Yamaha LS9-32 and SB168-ES Stage Box at the Goodwill Church in Montgomery, New York. Several years ago, the company was called in to design and install a state-of-the-art sound system for a new worship space. Unexpectedly, funding was cut and it appeared the installation would be placed on the back burner. In a successful fund raising mission by members of church, the goal required to purchase and install a new system had been met, and by the fall of last year, work had begun.

The 700-seat contemporary church has a diverse, active congregation with 1,000 in attendance each week. A full band and six vocalists accompany the sermons. “It was very apparent early on that a new system for Goodwill Church would not just be for spoken word,? states James Cioffi, more
