A New Audio Video Installation Supports
Growth and Legacy at Houston’s Historic St. Rose of Lima Catholic Community

First established in 1946, St. Rose of Lima has become a vibrant part of the historical Houston community. The parish leaders reached out to LD Systems to support the recent facilities growth plan including enhancements to the parish’s church audio video installation. LD Systems installed a new sound and video system that uniquely complemented the modest sanctuary’s intimate environment and beautiful interior of the sanctuary.

The new sound system is comprised of two separate Renkus Heinz ICL-FR speaker column arrays and 70Volt ceiling speakers powered by an Atlas PA601 amplifier that will be used independently for spoken word, worship service leadership and music services. The flown Renkus Heinz speaker arrays include steerable beams via DSP software that allow for precise adjustment of coverage patterns. A JBL ASB6112 subwoofer, and a stage monitor to support music services were installed in the cantor area. An Ashly NE24.24m DSP will be used as the main mixer. Shure wireless microphones are used for services and an Ashly FR-16 remote control will assist with audio and instrument volume control.

The new video system installation included Da-Lite motorized projection screens mounted onto the existing stone walls flanking the altar. Two Panasonic PT-EZ580U projectors with long throw lenses were installed on both sides of the sanctuary avoiding any visual distraction from the building’s architecture and ornate decorative elements that adorn the sanctuary walls. An auto switching decora plate with HDMI and VGA connectors sends video signal to an Extron IN1608 for distribution and control is managed by an Extron MLC226 IP.

LD Systems is comfortable working in any size worship facility and we are proud to add St. Rose Lima to our growing systems integration client list.
