New building, new setup
Hello guys! So, my church is moving into a completely new building in march 2013, and I thought I should ask here for some advice. First a look at our current setup and what we are bringing into the new building.
Two monitors + mouse and keyboard for the projector setup. An old, small lightmixer. (watching tour de france while doing some cleanup, lol)
Rack with kramer image mixer on top, followed by wireless setup and drawers for microphones and stuff.
Table with Yamaha sound mixer and internet router in background for wireless mixing control.
This setup is a fixed installation and has been like that for the last two-three years. In the new building it won't be permanent, because we are going to rent it out for exams, conferences and stuff. In addition, we won't use that old light mixer anymore, so we are going to get a usb-DMX setup with a computer or laptop.
So here is what I need help/input from you guys.
I know that the sound mixer needs to be as close as possible to the middle of the stage/room. But what do you prefer being next to it? Should we have sound in the middle then light and projector on each side? We need the Kramer mixer rack to be as close as possible to the projector, and then we need the other racks to be as close as possible to the sound. When we're doing shows, light needs more communication with sound, but during normal meetings and worhips sessions, light isn't that important.
At last, if you have any tips on the build itself. We have to take everything up before every meeting and down after every meeting as fast as possible. Also, if anyone has tips on good IKEA tables that works for setups like this, that would mean alot. IKEA is the only store I know of that exist in most parts of the world, including Norway (it is Swedish, after all..)
