Nashville, TN (December 2, 2004)–Yonsei Central Baptist Church, the second largest church in Seoul, Korea, has chosen three of Harrison’s new Trion audio consoles. The center will be home to two Trion’s as live/broadcast consoles and a third Trion configured for fully automated post production.
The Trion is Harrison’s latest Generation-3 control surface and exploits Linux and USB technology with the ease of Ethernet connectivity. A single Trion when used as a front-of-house console also provides the onstage monitor mixes from a stage-side remote controller. To share resources each console is networked, via fiber, to a Harrison digital.engine and have combined resources consisting of 288 mic inputs, 160 digital 40-bit channels, over 96 fader strips.
Founded by the charismatic Pastor Yoon, the ministry’s workshops and sermons have seen attendance levels numbering in the hundreds of thousands with this number increasing at a steady pace. The newly designed prayer center at the base of Yonsie’s Prayer Mountain is designed to accommodate tens of thousands of worshippers with a massive worship hall as well as large auditoriums for gatherings, prayer rooms, overnight lodging, and dining amenities for members and guests.
Tom Semmes, Harrison’s International broadcast sales manager commented on Yonsei’s needs and choice of audio consoles. “During my first visit, the church made it clear they needed a multipurpose system that would never sacrifice audio quality. Once I saw the scale of the project I knew we could provide both a totally integrated solution and the unsurpassed audio performance they demanded. They did their homework and recognized the advantages of our 40-bit end-to-end, Wide Pipe processing and new surface flexibility.”
