New Audio Visual Equipment for Port Moresby | PNG

Installing new speakers in to the hall at Nine Mile, Port Moresby.


Revival Fellowship Project Report:

661kg of new audio-visual equipment was installed at the Nine Mile hall (PNG) in July 2011.

On a busy Sunday or a special rally meeting the Revival Fellowship at Port Moresby may have 3,500 or more people in attendance.  That could include 200 – 250 observers.  The hall is approx. 60m long and 50m wide.  It is open to the world on three sides and there are no walls in front of the stage area.  From the pulpit, it is 50m to the furthest seat and 70-80m to where the mothers with young children sit.

In spite of the enthusiasm, dedication and passion of the music ministry, many people were not clearly hearing all of what was said from the pulpit and the value of the music and singing was somewhat diminished.  Even when the sound system volume was sufficient it lacked clarity and therefore was not carrying much meaning.  Due to factors like poor equipment and acoustics, much of the sound was distorted.

All that has changed...

The new system is installed and the music ministry team at the Nine Mile hall have been trained in its use.  There are three projectors with 2.7m x 2m screens showing the words to the songs, the scriptures used in the talks and video of the testimonies, the MC, the chorus leader or the Speaker.

At the first meeting where the equipment was installed, the mothers outside were beaming with tears in their eyes…so happy that they could see, hear and understand.  No matter where people were sitting in the hall they all had the same benefits - clarity of sound, a clear view of the speaker and no need to guess what was being said.  In fact you could walk to the toilets 100 metres away and still hear and understand.
