Brief of the church audio visual requirements
The existing Ealing Green church audio visual system was in need of an upgrade. As part of a major renovation works Newtech Southern was asked to design and install a new audio visual system that would serve the new multifunctional community and religious space.
The client required an audio visual system that would allow audio and video inputs and outputs throughout the church so that services / events could be held in any area or in any configuration. 6 floorboxes were installed each fitted with microphone, laptop audio/ MP3, HDMI inputs, together with monitor speaker and TV monitor outputs. These floorboxes allowed microphones and music playback devices to be connected into the mixer and laptops to be connected into the video switcher which would then be displayed on either of the two portable 60″ LED monitors or projector. A 5000 lumens projector was installed on the balcony which could be used for large events with a portable floor standing 3.5m screen, in addition to the two 60″ monitor screens. Lapel and hand held radio microphone systems were provided in addition to a range of hand held (wired) microphones. All control equipment was installed with an oak equipment cabinet to match the churches interior with connection to remote speakers in the foyer areas. A hearing aid induction loop system was also installed. a slideshow of the completed church audio visual system –
The installation was carried out over several months by Newtech engineers in late 2015 and was divided into 3 phases – 1st fix cabling, 2nd fix installation of equipment and commissioning of the finial system. A training day was provided to ensure all potential operatives were comfortable with using the new system. The completed system was covered by Newtech’s 2 year maintenance which is applied to all new installations.
