WAVE New Campus Design
Full AVL Design with Acoustic Design/Modeling and Room Shape. Foyer Design with LED lighting, Multi-media and Control System, Stage and Lighting Design.
WAVE worked hand-in-hand with the Church, and their architect to implement a fully-immersive audio and visual experience throughout the auditorium. The desire for a room that would provide a “simple elegance” while functionally creating a visual experience that would make those on stage feel like they were having intimate conversations with every person in the room was a primary goal.
The main auditorium features a high-impact audio system, providing high quality sound in every seat.
The acoustics of the space are optimized to enable contemporary worship, with tight bass and high-impact audio. Throughout the design stage, sound isolation was key to the design strategy, allowing the auditorium to operate in a crowded commercial development and adjacent to residential property. Noise control is key, providing a quiet, controlled environment for live recording and broadcast.
Dynamic visuals are provided by a large upstage LED wall, complemented by side LED walls arranged in a vertical layout. All video powered through Pandora media servers.
Every fixture in the sizable lighting rig is based on LED sources, providing both color mixing and automation as well as significant operational savings. Moving lights are controlled via a network-based lighting control system. Full integrated control of media servers and synchronization via timecode is provided throughout. All house and architectural lighting is integrated into the control system, will full color mixing throughout the audience, breaking down the “fourth wall” and immersing the audience in color.
Full Campus Design
WAVE’s AVL design extends outside the main auditorium and into the facility as a whole. A show-control system provides an immersive experience throughout the lobbies, integrating digital signage, color-changing LED lighting, and audio through multiple zones. The same design strategy extends into the Children’s theaters and throughout the offices.
The entire WAVE AVL system is integrated into a WAVE-designed enterprise IT network, supporting both the real-time production uses and the office user and server systems. WAVE implemented a fully-intelligent wireless network, and coupled the entire facility to the internet and to a dedicated fiber-optic network between campuses.
