Soundus Corporation supplies four DiGiCo desks for Manna church
SOUTH KOREA: Soundus Corporation recently supplied and installed four DiGiCo consoles into the 4,000-seat Manna Methodist Church in South Korea, which attracts approximately 10,000 worshippers each week.
Services feature a live band, choir, organ and orchestra, so the audio system needed a high input channel count in addition to be able to mix live audio for broadcast on its own internet channel.
Soundus Corporation supplied and installed a DiGiCo SD7 console at FOH with four SD-Racks and an SD8-24 to take care of the live broadcast mix. In addition, the distribution company supplied an SD9 for a mobile audio system and an SD11 for the church video-editing suite.
‘The decision to use DiGiCo consoles was based on the SD7’s ability to handle more than 200 input channels, the dual engine offering stability, reliable redundancy and excellent sound quality,’ explained Soundus sales manager Byung Chul Park. ‘The church also needed additional mixing consoles and it was an obvious decision to stay with the same manufacturer.’
Utilising an Optocore fibre optic network, this solution has reportedly provided a ‘seamless solution’ throughout the church. ‘The system is very versatile and is easily expandable for any future requirements,’ concluded Mr Chul. ‘The church is very happy with it.’
