Lambeth Conference 2008

18th September 2008

2008 Lambeth Conference - the worldwide conference which brings together Anglican Ministers from all over the globe and which only takes place every ten years. Peak were originally asked to provide event power supplies and event site distribution for the three week conference at the University of Kent at Canterbury, but with just a few weeks to go we were delighted to be awarded the contract for conference sound in both main venues as well. The main plenary sessions took place in a custom designed temporary structure, within which we flew our EAW line array PA speakers from our Litec FlyinTowers. Front of house sound control came from our Soundcraft MH3 and monitors were driven by a A&H ML4000. The EAW KF730 line arrays are a delight to deploy, and despite some last minute changes to the layout of the venue, we were able to quickly adapt allowing for even coverage throughout the 1600 seat auditorium. The new EAW UX8800 processors sound fantastic! In the Spouses' Venue, we installed a Mach system to support both speeches and musical acts. The diversity of stage activity meant the system needed to be at its most flexible. The system was controlled by a Yamaha M7CL desk. In total, four generators were deployed as two pairs of sync'd sets - and for added peace of mind they were remote monitored to ensure that if there were any problems, engineers could be on site as soon as possible. After three weeks of being on site, we are pleased to report that there were no problems with the system set up or solution we installed. The event received much high profile news coverage, including the BBC, Sky and other worldwide news organisations. You can also see more photos on the official event Flickr site.]]>
