Media Room

Our church is undergoing some renevations, and it will be necessary to move our whole FOH booth down to floor level.

What we're looking at is having FOH sound and a camera op raised about two feet off floor. Then behind them raised about 4 feet will a "media room" Basically FOH and rear projection, lighting, and simulcast. The media room will be enclosed and will have a large piece of glass so that we can see out.

One of my concerns was will the room need accoustical treatment of some kind. I was thinking it would need to be soundproofed so that FOH sound and our dedicated monitors in there wouldn't interfere.

Should it be sound proofed, or will it be fine just being a regular room.

I'm sure y'all need more information than what I've given, so if you need anything just ask.

Thanks!

I can say from experience that if you plan on mixing audio separately for video, then you would want to go the soundproofed route. Our media room is soundproofed naturally due to the fact that we are isolated by a couple of rooms and a hallway so we don't hear anything except for what we get over the snake.

Sound isolation will be necessary if you want the highest quality broadcast mix as well as com communications.
This will require special design of door closures, glass, wall etc. is paramount for correct isolation.
All conduit, corners, seems, etc. need to be properly sealed to keep sound transmission to a minimum.

Ok.

The audio for the simulcast does come from our broadcast board, but that board is located in the TV Production room. The media room will just house about 4 computers and a lighting board and the appropriate people to run them. During special productions, it'll probably also house the general director.

Even so, you'll still want to keep the STC down to a minimum between rooms. Someone well versed in isolation would be necessary.

That's what I wanted to know. We just had a meeting about placement of this room, and I brought up the fact that sound isolation of some sort would be needed. I just wanted to double check that before I go and really push for it to be done.

If built inappropriately, your Media Room will be very "boomy" due to the LF energy moving the walls. Additionally, you don't want any com traffic from the general director distracting the audience.
