                    [post_content] => When the nation’s largest church decides to relocate to a new facility, it takes a major construction effort. When the move involves transforming a former sports arena into an intimate worship experience for 16,000 congregants, the challenge is even greater. Led by Pastor Joel Osteen, the church took the Compaq Center, added a five-story building that includes a 27,000 sq.ft. media suite for audio and video production, replaced and renovated all of the systems throughout the campus, and created a facility that is unrivaled in both its capacity and the environment it offers for worship.

The project involved three separate but related challenges: live sound, television broadcast, and audio / video recording and post production. RBDG initially was sought out to design the new broadcast and production facilities, but also was asked to oversee acoustics within the main worship space.

The challenge of converting a sports arena to an intimate worship experience meant significant changes to the acoustics within the space, as well as making it a much quieter venue. RBDG also was dealing with a variety of noise and vibration issues - sound isolation from the concourse and a new chiller plant, and from traffic on the freeway just outside the building. A barrier beneath the arena seating was needed as part of the fire separation scheme for the new sanctuary, so RBDG devised one to serve triple duty in also achieving acoustical separation from the nursery spaces below and for low-frequency absorption in the main worship space.

For the Media Suite on the fifth floor of the new Family Life Center, RBDG provided architectural, interior and acoustical design services. The Center houses the video and audio production control rooms, camera shading, audio recording studios, post production, editing and graphics rooms, as well as the central technical equipment hub for broadcast and media systems campus-wide.

                    [post_content] => Nowhere is the increasing importance of music, media and production to houses of worship more evident than at Harbor House Studios. Situated just north of Dallas/Fort Worth in Keller, TX, the RBDG-designed facility is the recording arm of adjacent Anchor Church. One of the first on-site facilities to incorporate higher quality production components into church ministries, Harbor House Studios has full-fledged audio recording and video production capabilities. Its primary mission is to support the church's ministry, develop artists and support Christian music video production, but the facility also is busy with commercial secular projects as a for-hire studio.

Built from the ground up, the 3,100 sq. ft. recording facility includes a control room, tracking studio and two isolation booths (all of which are built on isolated concrete slabs); a video editing suite; central machine room; office; lounge; kitchen and associated support areas.

According to general manager Hyman Stansky, one of the facility's most significant features is its access to an acoustically tuned NC-15 auditorium that seats 500. "The availability of this type of room makes a world-class 'live concert sound' available to any band, orchestra, or choir that wants the acoustic 'feel' of a large hall but doesn't want to deal with the budget or scheduling issues that are connected with large-scale venues," he notes.

The control room, studio and isolation booths all feature maple hardwood floors. The studio's 17-foot ceilings provide a large acoustical volume, while clerestory windows (part of a system of low-frequency wall diffusion) let in natural light.

The church and studio share a common backstage area, allowing equipment to be moved easily between the two, and ensuring that performance and recording sessions can be quickly set-up or struck.

                    [post_content] => When the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) began planning its relocation from Minneapolis, MN to Charlotte, NC, it was decided that the new facility would include in-house production capabilities. BGEA produces 10 network affiliate prime time specials each year that air in the US and Canada. Evangelistic television programs and training materials are created and distributed worldwide. RBDG was chosen to design the technical spaces to meet the production needs of this international ministry.

Features of the 13,500 sq. ft. production facility with high-definition infrastructure include a Pro Tools audio control room with a dedicated equipment room, a 1,000 sq.ft.live room with 3 isolation booths, 3 Avid Adrenaline editing suites, an Avid Nitris DS editing suite, and a Final Cut Pro editing suite.

BGEA’s 1,100 sq. ft. Video Technical Operations Center has the capacity for 50 equipment racks. The digital broadcast infrastructure includes a Virage/Masstech media asset management system. The new production facility was completed in April 2005.
