Audio Video Setup and installation in Auditorium
Auditoriums are huge event spaces used for events that take place with large audiences. The purpose of the technology in an auditorium space is to assure that the presentation goes smoothly and efficiently.
An experienced team should put together a perfect Audio-Visual setup and design for auditoriums, that makes the experience, wonderous for everyone who attends the event.
Filling a large space with sound is challenging and requires an experienced team for the setup, whether it is for a high school musical, orchestra or live music venue. The goal is not merely whether performers can be heard, but ensuring that what the audience hears is what the performers intend. An excellent sound reinforcement configuration will allow as many of the audience members to catch the same sound quality as possible. To achieve this, you need to have a basic understanding of sound design for large venues.
The interior components of the Auditorium altogether with its parameters decide the equipment required. Upholstered seats absorb acoustic energy, as do drapes, curtains and other kinds of materials. A highly absorbent smaller auditorium may require more amplification than a large reflective one. Some of the surfaces that reflect sound are metal surfaces, cement and wood.
Choose amplification and speakers appropriate to room size.
Based on the size of the Auditorium, the amplification system is required to produce several hundred or thousands of watts of power to drive speakers so that the entire area gets filled with sound using equalization components. While small theatres require smaller integrated speaker systems that include low, mid and high-frequency drivers, large auditoriums may require component speakers where the bass (woofers), midrange and high-end speakers are each in their enclosures.
Speaker systems require companion amplifiers that use crossovers to divide the audio spectrum evenly.
Choose a mixing console that affords maximum flexibility for the number of audio sources required. In case of a live performance, the performers need to hear themselves, the speakers or headphones available on stage are monitors. The mixer used in the sound console should support sufficient monitor outputs to each performer. Monitors also require their amplifiers. The size of the monitor depends on the size of the stage, and the acoustic properties of the Auditorium. In some venues, the sound is better when each performer wears their headphones as an open speaker could reflect off the back of the stage towards the audience. However, all headphones are not always practical for some applications.
Select microphones do not pick up ambient sounds from the room as they are highly directional. Microphones should get placed as close to the sound source as possible as many auditoriums may have unpredictable reflective surfaces that cause feedback.
Providing a quality mix to performers on stage can be the difference between a memorable performance and a forgettable one. A good sound engineer ensures proper and perfect monitor setup on stage, which allows musicians to perform with confidence.
