New surface mounted control panel installed at the Holy Trinity Brompton (HTB) to provide to ‘self service’ management for its AV
The church, which has four other locations across South West London, is one of the first organisations to adopt the MCP1, installing the product in two areas of the building.
Here the church has a primary worship space, as well as a number of smaller ‘breakout’ rooms where meetings and other events can be held. These are located several hundred metres from the main building.
The AV facilities in the breakout rooms are designed to be ‘self serve’ by any user.
Featuring customisable touch controls, the MCP1 delivers remote control flexibility, with up to 36 parameters able to be assigned to the six control (plus home) buttons. Featuring an “elegant” brushed aluminium finish, dot matrix display that permits dynamic labelling, four user levels for access management and enhanced security, up to 16 MCP1s can be added to a system.
“The systems are set up to auto schedule, which resets the input level parameters overnight,” says HTB production supervisor Joe Sunley-Smith. “We have used the access management facilities to ensure that all settings are locked, so the only parameters users can change are the levels. We use zone control in one of the rooms, so users can also choose which zone is operational.
He continued: “When we planned upgrading the analogue system to digital, we wanted to standardise the rooms so people would be familiar with the systems, no matter which one they use. We are working towards this across all of our four main sites and breakout rooms.”
HTB worked with London-based PF Events for the installation.
