South Korea - Bethel Church in IllSan has invested in a new SSL L500 Plus live console and SSL stageboxes for FOH duties. The system was supplied and installed by South Korean SSL distributor HANSEO Broadcast & Music Tech Inc.
Bethel Christian Church has two chapels, one in Ilsan and one in Paju, NorthWest Seoul. The Bethel Church Pastor travels between the two, delivering a sermon from one, which is transmitted live to the other. Daily attendance at the Church is 8,000 - 10,000 people, with six services on a Sunday and a total congregation of around 20,000 people.
The input channel count on a typical service at Bethel Church is 64, with drum kit, bass, two guitars, keyboards, piano, orchestra, choir, soloist, and Pastor from stage. These go from SSL SuperAnalogue stageboxes, through the SSL BL II.D Blacklight II MADI Concentrator, and to FOH via a redundant optical pair. The console itself has an additional touch screen connected, as well as the SSL SOLSA online/offline control PC application.
Ilsan Bethel Church picked the SSL L500 Plus console after a carefully considered move from an older analogue FOH console to a new digital replacement. Tae Young Kwon, chief engineer at the church, notes: "We looked at a lot of consoles from all the main manufacturers. Our criteria included reliability, scalability, intuitiveness, price, and service. It was a difficult process, but in the end the deciding factor was sound quality. We chose the L500.”
