Construction began on Caroline Springs Anglican Church in 2007, with Factory Sound involved from the get-go. The Caroline Springs community, although relatively new, was growing rapidly and so this church needed to provide both for now, and for future expansion. Apart from the Sundays services, a variety of different events happen on a weekly basis within the church space, and so the complete audiovisual solution needed to cater for a spread of different activities.
A multi-function PA system, including projector and screen, capable of providing coverage for both speech and band performances in the chapel, with an audio feed to the foyer.
Functionality: Firstly, from the presenter’s point of view, we were able to provide a fully equipped lectern with microphone, audio and vision control on-board, enabling full control without the need for a ‘front of house’ engineer to be present.
Performance and flexibility: Building the Parish from scratch, it was the chance to provide this burgeoning community with high quality sound for many years to come. Two Nexo PS15 speakers (per side) were flown, offering excellent coverage for the entire parish. Ensemble performances can take place in any one of four locations in the room, so RSS Digital Snake is the perfect way to easily input the microphone feeds back to the FOH mixer location, utilising hardwired Cat5 points throughout the building infrastructure. Although the vision system has one projector currently, provision has been made for future TV screens, controllable via the Kramer matrix switcher.
Commissioned October 2008
