Campbellsville, KY (November 4, 2008)–Ransdell Chapel, the heart of Campbellsville University in Kentucky, has installed an Allen & Heath iLive-144 at its FOH position.
A 900-seat facility, the Ransdell Chapel is used for various types of events including student orientation, bi-weekly student body worship sessions, an annual Pastor’s conference, worship arts conference, theatrical performances, symphonies, and full band concerts.
“Completed and dedicated in April of 2007, the new Ransdell Chapel is in constant use and every program is different from day to day,” explains Doug Price, the A/V coordinator for the University. “Often, they will have multiple events in a single day. They needed a system with easy channel and output configuration, total recall and flexible routing, so the iLive-144 was the perfect solution for Ransdell. The mix rack lives at the stage, integrates directly with their Aviom system with the iLive’s Aviom card, and connects to the mixing surface with two CAT5 cables.”
The Chapel’s iLive is configured with 48 inputs, 16 outputs, and the Aviom card in the iDR-10 Mix Rack and a further 16 inputs and 8 outputs in the control surface to handle wireless mics, CD players, DVD players, and computers for playback and recording. Scene recall is heavily used to switch between the various types of events, and administrative passwords and security levels are implemented to manage the different mixing engineers. DCAs and Matrix outputs are configured to feed the Lobby, Choir Room, monitor feeds, and record decks.
“Also, it goes without saying,” continues Doug, “that a number of folks with different experience levels would be mixing, so the iLive’s administrative “lock out” features and its overall ease of use made the decision easy for the Ransdell Chapel.”
The console was installed by Jim Cottrell from JCM Media with training and sales support from Marc Warling at Online Marketing.
