… Sydney church receives full AV upgrade
Strathfield Uniting Church recently underwent an AV upgrade; the new audio system includes a ‘simple mode’ and an ‘event mode’. The simple mode allows the minister or presenter to turn the system on - ready to use - at the push of a button, for a simple midweek meeting without the need for support from the technical crew. The event mode is used for larger events including full church services, where an operator is available to manage the signal levels for the band, for speakers and for the video system.
The audio system at St Mary & St Merkorious Coptic Orthodox Church was in poor condition due to environmental elements such as dust clogging up the components. The current system was also not secure with controls readily accessible within the church.
The unique architecture of St Michael’s Church in Baulkham Hills resulted in a challenging project for the Installs team. The Church is constructed in an octagonal layout with a pitched roof that meets in the centre. The existing system didn’t work effectively due to poorly placed speakers causing unusual reflections and unclear audio.
The electro-acoustic challenges of traditional stone Christian churches are many. Originally designed to disperse the sound of choirs and organs while filling their vaulted spaces with light, they rarely interact well with modern microphones and loudspeakers. In addition, their age and heritage status often makes incorporating wiring and any visibly modern technology physically and aesthetically difficult.
