Big Adaptive coverage at Apostolic and Prophetic Conference

Big Adaptive coverage at Apostolic and Prophetic Conference

Published: WORSHIP

USA: Each year, King Jesus International Ministry hosts a variety of events around the globe, the largest of which is the Apostolic and Prophetic Conference (CAP). A crowd of more than 20,000 worshippers attends CAP at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida.

The 2016 edition of the conference took place at the tail end of the year and was staged in-the-round, featuring sermons, speeches and prayer sessions, live and recorded music. Miami-based Mix3 Sound was contracted to supply the audio solution for the event, turning to Eastern Acoustic Works’ (EAW) Adaptive sound system. The pro audio production company worked in collaboration with the manufacturer to deploy what is reportedly the largest Adaptive system implemented to date.

The system comprised 116 Adaptive units configured across 16 column arrays. Designed to differ from ‘mechanically-articulated line array and J-curve approaches’, Adaptive elements contain independently powered and processed acoustical components that provide all of the amplification, DSP, system diagnostics and networking functionality needed. The arrays needed to be hung higher than usual due too the 360-degree seating arrangement created by the in-the-round staging used inside the American Airlines Arena. This is where the Adaptive system came in handy, as it has the ability to do direct coverage down vertically.

‘Having this level of control allows us to easily make any changes necessary without having to lower the system, explains EAW Engineer, James Bamlett, who provided Mix3 Sound with assistance at CAP. Adaptive units can be positioned to direct audio coverage 90-degrees up or 90-degrees down, resulting in no need for down or up-fills.

‘The videowalls were not on any of the original drawings, but with the EAW Adaptive System we had the ability to change the coverage of the system to avoid hitting these videowalls without having to re-hang the arrays,’ Mr Bamlett continues. ‘This would not have been possible with a traditional line array system. Just through our software, we were able to change the pattern of the system and avoid reflections off the videowalls.’

The manufacturer’s Resolution software, which interfaces with Adaptive via Dante, was used to determine the optimal configuration. ‘In a traditional J-curve line array system you’d have to measure the room, plot the room dimensions and calculate the angles between cabinets, and then rely on a lot of pinning, hang points and a lot of physical work to match the characteristics of the room,’ notes Mr Bamlett. ‘With the Adaptive system, we’re able to go in and hang the columns in a straight line, and then through our Resolution software, we can define exactly what we want to cover. It’s a much quicker system to fly, requires less people, and the system is in the air faster.’
