DMacChurch
DMac OldHall

DMacNewHall – also covers the Upper Room

The Vestry remains named DMac Router – it also covers the Upper Room and the Old Hall.

In the Church, the laptop at the back will now connect with the internet so that the projector can display any internet site, video etc.

Many thanks to Melville Paton for his considerable efforts and expertise in setting all this up.  Now - let's use it!


new consol

For some time, it had been planned to move the control of the sound system and projection system from the front of the Church to the corner at the back.   
An office desk was purchased to serve as a console which takes the sound mixer desk, the equipment for making recordings of the Service on to memory sticks for those unable to attend Church and the laptop which serves the projectors at the front and back of the Church.
With the mixer desk no longer hidden away in a cabinet, the operator can now adjust the microphone levels to provide a consistent level and quality of reproduction.    This is particularly useful for the microphone at the lectern where the voice level of different readers may vary.
