The Rock Cathedral opts for Clear-Com
NIGERIA: Multi-site megachurch organisation House on the Rock has outfitted its newly built The Rock Cathedral in Lagos with Clear-Com’s FreeSpeak wireless intercom system and Eclipse HX-Delta digital matrix intercom system. The manufacturer’s West African distributor, Highway Audio Visual, assisted in the system design and drafting of the specifications for the project tender.
The Rock Cathedral based in Lagos is a multipurpose facility with a total floor area of 32,000 sq-m and a seating capacity of 14,000 people. The Rock Cathedral has the largest footprint for a single building in Lagos State and will soon house the headquarters of The Rock Foundation and the House On The Rock, which will then accommodate facilities for worship, education, healthcare, community development, reformation training, recreation and social rehabilitation among many other initiatives.
‘Having worked with Clear-Com products in the past I was confident that this was the intercom system that would work well for us,’ said Kolawole Oladunmoye, administrator, House on the Rock. ‘We chose the FreeSpeak and Eclipse HX Delta digital matrix due to the reliability and scalability that the systems offer. These two traits were key as the intercom system will be used for both The House on the Rock’s day to day activities as well as annual events which differ drastically in size.’
This includes the House on the Rock’s annual concert ‘The Experience’ which attracts a crowd of around 500,000. The event is comprised of 11 hours of uninterrupted music and worship so the organisers required a robust and reliable intercom system to ensure that the event runs smoothly.
‘Equipping a new facility can be stressful, so we are thrilled that we can provide The Rock Cathedral with a robust and reliable solution that will give them peace of mind,’ said Richard Palmer, regional sales manager at Clear-Com. ‘Our systems will allow the production teams to execute their jobs with confidence due to the reliable nature of FreeSpeak and Eclipse.’
