Discovery Baptist embarked on a significant project to enhance its audio, visual, and lighting (AVL) systems within their building. As the existing systems needed a revamp, the organization looked to create an entirely new AVL infrastructure from the ground up.
Discovery Baptist started this project with the aim of modernizing their facilities and achieving a high-quality AVL experience. The challenge was to create a robust infrastructure that would serve them effectively for years to come. However, the organization faced budget limitations that restricted the implementation of all desired components. Our approach was to help Discovery Baptist in crafting a master plan that allowed them to gradually expand and optimize their AVL system as funds became available.
To balance quality with budget constraints, we carefully selected technology and equipment that would elevate the audio, visual, and lighting experience while staying within the specified financial limits. Notable choices include:
- Martin Audio CDD Series Speakers: These speakers were strategically placed to ensure comprehensive coverage of the room, delivering exceptional audio quality.
- Integrated Lighting Pipes: To seamlessly blend with the architectural aesthetics, we installed lighting pipes with built-in power and DMX controls. This allowed for flexibility in managing and adjusting lighting fixtures without interrupting the overall design.
- Audio Wall Plates: New audio wall plates were strategically positioned around the platform area, supplying flexibility for input and output connections, thus enhancing the overall audio experience.
- Yamaha TF5 Audio Console and Stage Box: The introduction of the Yamaha TF5 audio console and stage box improved audio control and quality, ensuring that sound production was top-notch.
- Chamsys QuickQ Lighting Console: The new Chamsys QuickQ Lighting Console offered advanced lighting control, enhancing the visual atmosphere during events and services.
- Projection and Screen Infrastructure: A single projector and screen were installed, with provisions made for the easy addition of a second screen and projector in the future, ensuring scalability as needs evolve.
- Camera Locations for Livestreaming: Future-proofing the AVL system, we identified and prepared locations for cameras to enhance their livestreaming capabilities when needed.
Discovery Baptist's AVL system upgrade project was successfully executed, aligning with the organization's vision of creating a versatile and high-quality environment for their services and events. The careful selection of technology, combined with the strategic master planning, ensured that the system can evolve over time as resources allow. This project serves as a testament to the power of thoughtful planning and innovative solutions in the realm of AVL systems. Discovery Baptist is now well-equipped to provide exceptional experiences for its congregation and community.
