Denton, TX (August 19, 2020)—The 3,500-seat auditorium of Denton Bible Church (DBC) has a lot of room by necessity, so there was space for the house of worship to bring in a pair of DiGiCo Quantum338 consoles for both front-of-house and monitor mixing. At the same time, a new DiGiCo SD12 console was also installed as the church’s new broadcast audio console.
Both desks, plus the two DiGiCo SD-Racks installed along with them that sit on an Optocore network, were integrated and commissioned by Digital Resources, Inc., an AV systems integrator based in nearby Southlake.
Digital Resources Audio Sales Manager Lance Eddleman noted the SD12’s small footprint, allowed it to fit next to the church’s Pro Tools system as it took on DBC’s broadcast needs. Furthermore, the Optocore network allowed both desks to integrate well. “We also included the Optocore AutoRouter on the network, because it takes the consoles’ inherent flexibility and expands it,” he says.
The Optocore AutoRouter automatically discovers devices and adds them to the Optocore loop. When a mobile device is disconnected or powered down, AutoRouter automatically closes the loop with the remaining devices, discovering and switching links to establish redundancy, without any user action.
“That’s a big deal for this church because they rely heavily on volunteers to run their systems,” says Eddleman. “So for a small event, like a wedding or a funeral, they can use only the components of the sound system that they need to, such as a single console and SD-Rack, instead of having to turn the entire system on.”
DBC’s Preston Fuqua recalls, “With what we had before, we had to jump through hoops to add things onto the systems. Now, with features like the integration between the console software and external Waves plug-ins, we can do so much more than we ever could before, and so much more easily.”
