Ebenezer United Methodist Church faces some unique challenges in terms of growth and its AV systems are key to managing that. Part of that is a new Yamaha CL5 digital console. The new console expanded the number of inputs on the stage to 32, and in the process allowed the church to go to a networked pair of CAT-5 strands instead of 14 new copper-wire runs. “The console also has a lot of nice features that make it friendlier to our volunteer-operator environment, including channel labeling and plenty of room for custom banks,” says James Mills, Ebenezer UMC’s director of technology.
