Grace Community Church installs Digital Riedel Intercom

(PresseBox) ( Noblesville, IN, )
Riedel Communications, a leading manufacturer of intercom, fiber and radio solutions, equipped the Grace Community Church in Noblesville, Indiana with an extensive communications infrastructure. At the heart of the intercom installation are Riedel Artist 64 and Artist 32 mainframes linked via fiber. A Performer digital partyline intercom system with various wall mount speakers and beltpacks also expands the flexibility of the installation.

One of the main objectives of building a new church facility was to provide enough room for all members of the community while keeping an intimate atmosphere within the church at the same time. Because of these considerations, the building consists of a large worship space, which holds up to 1,700, plus several other smaller worship areas and rooms. The resulting requirements for the intercom were not only to provide the communications infrastructure for the primary chapel, but to also include several other rooms and an audio/video control suite into the intercom matrix. While a Riedel Artist 64 matrix intercom mainframe is used in the main worship space, an Artist 32 mainframe is installed in another separate room. Various technical departments like video, lighting, sound and the director are connected via the intercom guaranteeing seamless services and other events.

"The challenge of the installation at Grace Community Church was the interconnection of the different rooms. Each room had individual local needs while having to interface to systems in other rooms. In addition we needed a variety of options including partylines, phone lines and radio transceivers, as well as more traditional control panel setups. The ability to connect a great variety of different signals to the Artist intercom made it possible to integrate the different technologies seamlessly," said system designer Jeff Miller of Sound Technology Consultants.

A total of 10 control panels are used in the different rooms and departments of the church. The five control panels in the main worship space connect the operator of the Pandoras Box, the video director and the technicians to the rest of the church. The other five panels offer connections to the audio room and integrate the chief technician into the intercom matrix.

Fiber and COAX-cables connect the individual elements of the intercom matrix. A Connect Solo interface integrates two telephone lines into the intercom installation.

A Performer digital partyline installation that covers a large part of the church expands the possibilities of the intercom. It's seamlessly integrated with the matrix intercom installation via three C44 system interfaces, allowing convenient configuration via the same software. A total of 15 digital partyline beltpacks are used at Grace Community Church. 18 CS-31 partyline splitters distribute the partyline signals. Connection points to the partyline are available throughout the entire building. Five additional CW-2 wall mount speakers in backstage green room and dressing areas expand the range of the partyline.
