Newtech were asked to upgrade the dated sound system at St Mary’s Church, Lydney. The system was to support voice amplification, background music and live music from the church music group. The new system incorporated a digital mixing desk with wireless IPAD control, giving complete freedom when setting up and monitoring services. The churches music group sets up in two different positions depending on the event / service and so the Digital Snake (Cat6 cable linking the mixer to the music group stagebox) was wired to two different wall sockets, therefore allowing the Stagbox to be packed away when not in use, but brought out and connected into the relevant wall connection as and when required. A custom Oak equipment cabinet was provided to house all of the control equipment, this was chosen to blend into the church interior. New speakers were installed for the Nave as well as joining the Chapel.
