…The P.A. People updates Christ College

Christ College is an affiliated College of the Australian College of Theology. With heritage aspects to the project, The P.A. People approached this task with the experience of 40 years working on traditional buildings that date back 150 years. With the re-build of College facilities, there is now a new library, training rooms and a new chapel with overflow hospitality area.

The task included audio, vision and lighting installations.


The system comprised JBL FOH CBT-series speakers, Crown amplifiers, BSS Blu series DSP, Soundcraft Expression 1 mixing console and Shure wireless microphones


Components included: NEC PA-500UG projector and 180” motorized screen; Video signals are transported over HDBaseT infrastructure; vision switching via AMX DVX-3155SP presentation switcher. The complete audio, visual and lighting systems are controlled through AMX via two NXD series touch panels  – one from stage and one from the mix position.

The P.A. People also installed a Sony PTZ camera, mounted to rear of chapel connected to an Epiphan lecture recorder, essentially providing networked-based video streaming – enabling remote access for students and other audiences.


A simple FOH setup was provided, with modest fixtures; a single lighting bar is positioned to light the stage and showcases the stage floor which is built from 100+ year-old refurbished timber.

Project Manager for The P.A. People, Josh Jones said; “the College also has several LCD screens and we provided a digital signage solution using Spinetix HMP200 players and Elementi software. It is easily managed over their network from one computer.

Training was provided to the client’s staff with the AMX control allowing user-friendly capability.
