ELC Lighting’s Green-Go system installed at Brisbane’s Nexus Church

A series of Green-Go digital intercom products from ELC Lighting have congregated at Nexus Church in Brisbane, Australia, to aid clear and directed communication between the team of AV operators. The church offers its 1,500-strong-congregation music and Bible-based training services across three sites and online, with an on-stage set up that features large LED and IMAG screens, a professional sound system and concert venue-like lighting. The technology is manned by a team of volunteers.


“The existing analogue, party line system was stretched to its limit and was no longer suitable - we needed more customisation and expandability”, says Andy Rogers from Brisbane Sound Group, which specified and supplied the Green-Go system. Rogers designed a system based on Green-Go Beltpack X and Wireless Beltpack X units, Green-Go Multi-Channel Rack Stations, a Green-Go Dante interface, Green-Go Headsets along with Wireless Antenna and battery charging units.


The team now has communication options from the in-room Production Booth, Video Control Room, Broadcast Audio Studio and the on-stage worship team. With the configured group and priority channels, it allows all the relevant team members - and only the relevant team members - to hear queues and quickly communicate technical issues.


“With 16-20 production team members rostered across three Sunday Services, as well as mid-week ministry events and large-scale conference events, the system is used regularly”, says Rogers. “Digital signal transmission means you can hear clearly in all production environments. We previously had a very high noise floor from analogue systems piggybacked across each other. That went away overnight using Green-Go.”


Rogers says that being network based and POE, deployment of the Green-Go products was straight forward with only a minor expansion to the church’s existing network infrastructure: “The Green-Go Dante Interface opened communication to the on-stage worship team, suddenly allowing for more accurate start queues and faster emergency communication, all resulting in less running around and stress at those key moments.”


“One unexpected benefit of adding Dante capability was the ability to improve our sound check process”, he continues. “With better and clearer communication, our soundcheck times became very consistent and predictable, allowing refinement of the process and we began hitting our service start times on time, every time. These small improvements go a long way to making the pastoral and eldership teams happy.”


Since the church invested in the new system, the Green-Go rack units have been in constant “on” usage. The team of AV volunteers were given basic training to configure and use the Green-Go system.
