South Korean church adds four Digico consoles

Four Digico mixers have been installed at Manna Methodist Church in Bundang New City, South Korea.

The installation comes not long after another church in the city – Jiguchon – upgraded to an SD7, demonstrating how the company’s consoles are gaining ground within the country’s house of worship market.

Featuring a state-of-the-art technical specification, the new Manna Methodist Church has a seating capacity of 4,000, with around 10,000 worshippers attending each week. Services include a live band, choir, organ and orchestra, so an audio system with a high input channel count was required, as well as facilities to mix live audio for broadcast on the church’s own online channel.

Manna consulted Digico’s South Korean distributor, Soundus Corporation, which supplied and installed an SD7 console at front of house, along with four SD-Racks and an SD8-24 to take care of the live broadcast mix. In addition, Soundus 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,” said 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.”

The set-up also utilises an Optocore fibre optic network to create a seamless solution throughout the church.

“The system is very versatile and is easily expandable for any future requirements,” concluded Byung Chul. “The church is very happy with it.”
