Nuthall Methodist Church

Nuthall Methodist Church in Nottingham is an active church that provides a variety of worship, fellowship and activity programmes for people of all ages from the local community.


NAV were commissioned as a church Audio Visual installer to upgrade the current AV set-up. Already installed were: a manual roller projection screen, ceiling mounted projector, AV control rack & speaker system. Although functioning, the existing projection system was starting to show its age and a brighter, sharper image was requested. A new projector would also be High Definition, ideal for the churches regular film showings. As with all church upgrades we assessed and considered the current AV equipment the church had already and suggested solutions that re-used their existing hardware wherever possible.

The current set-up also had some visibility/line-of-sight issues for the congregation to the rear of the church during Sunday services. Our site survey engineer proposed two wall-mounted displays installed half-way down the nave as ‘repeater-screens’ to duplicate the content on the main projection screen. We also incorporated an existing screen in the church porch in to the new system to further repeat the main screen content, as on occasion this area was used as an overflow when the church was at full capacity. Due to the distance that the displays were to be sited from the AV Rack, an HDMI-over-Cat5 Distribution System was required to successfully distribute Full-HD video signals to the displays. The existing AV system was based on the older analogue (VGA) video signal, both the AV Rack and Stage Input connection plates were upgraded from VGA and brought up to date with high definition HDMI inputs. A 3-Way HDMI Switcher was installed to facilitate video switching at the rack. Future plans to add a Blu-Ray player were considered and allowed for.
