SSL helps Calvary Chapel Old Bridge with streaming


Calvary Chapel Old Bridge non-denominational Christian church, located in central New Jersey, has upgraded its broadcast facilities with a Solid State Logic Live L100 console, which joins an SSL Live L200 console at FOH that was installed during a PA system upgrade in 2017. Wired! Ministry, the church’s AV technology department, chose the L100 based on the performance and compatibility of the two Live consoles, making sure that congregants worshipping at home during the pandemic experience the best audio quality during livestreamed services.

“We’ve been very happy with our L200,” said Wired! Ministry’s Marshall Garcia. “We have it paired with an L-Acoustics speaker system and it sounds awesome. So, when our previous broadcast console was reaching end of life, it made sense to go with the L100. It’s nice to be able to swap files between the two consoles. They speak nicely to each other, and it’s great for training. It was a no-brainer for us.”

Wired! Ministry is responsible for the broadcast of four services per week, on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays, as well as special events, via livestream, YouTube and Facebook. The L100 in the broadcast booth, which overlooks the stage in the church’s 1,000-seat auditorium, is connected to the L200 over MADI. “We’re using the preamps on the L200 at FOH and we’re sending those upstairs to the L100,” explained Wired! Ministry’s main broadcast engineer, Nicholas Dunphy. Services, which feature a contemporary band incorporating drums, bass, electric and acoustic guitars, keyboards and several vocalists, are also recorded, enabling virtual soundchecks at both console positions via a Dante network.

To bring a sense of realism to the dedicated broadcast mix, the HOW has two microphones on the ceiling and two on the stage in the main auditorium. “We put in just enough of those microphones so that you feel like you’re in the room,” continued Dunphy. “We’re able to listen to what the end user is getting and can adjust the mix so that it feels like you’re at the service in your home.” The broadcast studio is outfitted with a choice of reference monitors, including KRK V6 and JBL speakers.

As things have turned out, the quality of the livestream has helped the church grow during the pandemic. “In our area, there were a lot of churches that weren’t livestreaming,” added Garcia. “Some churches closed down and people were looking for an outlet. They found our website and were enjoying viewing the live services and how it sounded. So, when things opened up, we had a flood of new people from other churches that we hadn’t met before. It’s been a blessing.”
