First ARP Church
First ARP Church in Gastonia NC built a beautiful family life center complete with a new gymnasium, youth area, and kitchen. The church brought in Selah Media to design and install a new AV system for the facility.
Selah Media designed a fully integrated audio, video and lighting system in the new facility that connects to the existing AV system on the campus. We installed a Pageantry Innovations cart that serves as the FOH location, and with a 60' tether, can be deployaed wherever needed depending on the program. A Yamaha TF mixing system was placed in the cart, which matched the other components on campus. We installed Presonus CDL12 and CDL sub constant curvature arrays in a right/left configuration. On stage we place a Yamaha RIO audio stage box, and a Hitachi laser projector for presentation. The gymnasium was also treated with Acoustics First acoustical panels to minimize reflections and increase intelligibility in the space.
The church utilizes VMIX for its video and streaming capabilities. We installed a PTZ optics camera in the gymnasium in a protective case, and integrated the audio from the cart into the camera. Programming in the gym can be live streamed from the church sanctuary with this configuration.
The new construction led to a re-configuration of the audio/video setup in the church fellowship hall. We installed a Yamaha TF rack in a wall rack, and installed a new Hitachi laser projector in the space.
In 2023 we began to work with the church in a on-going capacity in continuing education for the church tech team. We periodically attend rehearsals and services to bring the production quality to new levels of excellence. The church has an excited group of tech operators that do a fantastic job!
