Houston Northwest Church Makes the Transition From Analog to Digital with Installation of Soundcraft® Si3 Console

Houston Northwest Church is one of the city’s major spiritual centers, a Baptist church that can host more than 2,000 congregants. Music is an integral part of their services, which combine a contemporary and traditional feel with music that can range from hymns and gospel to rock and country. To help support this wide variety of musical styles, Houston Northwest Church (HNW) recently installed a Soundcraft Si3 Digital Live Sound Console.

“We needed a new console because our old one was past the ten year mark and showing its age,? said Clint Collins, HNW media director. “It was a 48-channel console and I had every channel taken up with a need for more room to expand. With the old analog configuration I had to have three full racks of outboard EQs, compressors, limiters and other gear, and our patch bay was over 25 bays long. We were long overdue more

SLJ Field Soundcraft Vi1™ Digital Console For French President Sarkozy

Soundcraft digital desks have piloted the sound mix for many leading rock bands over the years, but in the last six months they have also reinforced the speech of two world leaders.

Following the use of Soundcraft consoles during the visit to the UK of Pope Benedict XVI last summer, a Vi1 was again on duty in the Chateauroux region of France on January 20, as French President Nicolas Sarkozy addressed more than 1,000 health workers in the gymnasium of the local hospital in Chatillon-sur-Indre.

FOH engineer, Benoit Lasjuilliarias, confirmed that the President always favours using local service operators where possible on his regional more

Big-City Broadcasting in Small-Town Minnesota with Vaddio Camera Systems

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (February 23, 2011) – Just because you’re based in a small town doesn’t mean you can’t have big-city ambition. Husband and wife team, Doug and Beth Voss, run the audiovisual system at Grace United Methodist Church in Paynesville, a rural Minnesota town with a population of 2,200. Looking for a unique way to reach the extended Paynesville community they hired Intermedia Systems Group of Burnsville, Minn. to install a complete AV system featuring high definition video displays, a Vaddio HD PTZ remotely controlled camera system and a digital audio sound reinforcement system to back it all up.

The Objective
“Being ahead of the game was our goal,? explained Doug Voss. “We saw what other churches were doing with broadcasts and we didn’t want to do a substandard job. Should we use standard definition cameras because that’s what everyone else is using or should we plan for more

NEW YORK: At 111 years of age, The Victory Theater on West 42nd Street has staged every conceivable theatrical presentation, from straight plays to live burlesque, even a brief stint as a XXX movie house. In 1992, The Victory became one of seven historic theaters adopted by The New 42nd St. Inc. a not-for-profit organization created by NYC and NYS to revitalize the district. Renamed The New Victory in December1995 following a $11.4 million renovation, the theater now presents exclusively family-oriented shows and is mandated by its not-for-profit status to maintain tickets within the $9.00 to $38.00 price range.

By 2010, the sound system installed during the 1995 renovation was beginning to show its age. “We were basically OK with the EAW-based system, but it was mid-range, and inadequate for the more ambitious productions we’ve been mounting,” explains New Victory director of production, David Jensen. “Anthony Nittoli had more

rbdg_sunset-christian-center-1.jpg

ROCKLIN, CA — Sunset Christian Center in Rocklin, CA, has come a long way since it was founded in a small warehouse by Greg and Kathy Fairrington more than 20 years ago. It recently opened the doors to an updated sanctuary featuring improved acoustics and a state-of-the-art audio system aimed at attracting major Christian recording artists. The campus, originally constructed in 1994, presently includes a main auditorium that seats 1,200, as well as six other worship venues, themed children’s spaces, a preschool, and a gym.

The sanctuary was originally designed for the more traditional worship setup of a choir accompanied by piano. To accommodate more contemporary music in worship services as well as concerts, Sunset Christian Center’s biggest challenge was its acoustics and PA system. For Kevin Hartman, the church’s technical director, the first order of business at the time more
