32Technical Design Priorities Minimize/Eliminate Audio FeedbackThis may create restrictions where we can put the choir, altar, etc.Support the stage ‘look’ that we desireWe do not need to ‘show-off’ equipment to be successful.Hiding equipment is just as important to create the environment we want to for VYCDeliver high quality audioIt has to sound good after #1 and #2 is done in order to have a successful event.Support sounds ‘feeling’ and dynamic range required by entertainment, praise & worship, adoration, liturgyDeliver proper lighting brightness for stage effects & photography & video (30 frames per second)
