Brentwood Academy Preparatory School Chooses Key Digital for Multi-Use Gymnasium AV Upgrade

Compass Control Pro provides user-friendly control solution for Brentwood Academy faculty

June 16, 2021 – In the Brentwood suburb of Nashville, Tennessee, sits the Brentwood Academy coeducational independent Christian college preparatory school for grades six through twelve. For years the school experienced frustrating audio and video issues in the upper multi-use gymnasium while hosting sporting events, school assemblies, pep rallies, and chapel services. The academy complained that the room was difficult to work in and the necessary AV adjustments were not intuitive; issues that were exacerbated by the constant audio video change-over the gym underwent for the various events held in the room. 

The professional integrators at Audio Electronics, a full-service audio-visual company from Nashville, TN, knew that the gymnasium’s solution lie within the user-friendly, flexible, and reliable control system, Compass Control Pro by Key Digital, an award-winning developer and manufacturer of leading-edge digital video processing and video signal distribution solutions. Implementing Compass Control Pro allowed Audio Electronics to accommodate the varying video and audio requirements of the events taking place throughout the gymnasium and deliver the needed fluidity and synchronization of all media.

The integration of Compass Control Pro provided simple button presses to control the projectors, screens, audio system, and also adjust and prepare the room for the specific event type taking place. Key Digital’s hallmark control solution allowed for seamless and independent control of the multiple scenes in the school gymnasium.

“One of the most unique designs for this installation is the score table for the basketball games,” said DeWayne Rains, Vice President of Sales for Key Digital. “The score table announcer has a computer from which he plays the tunes to get the crowd revved up and he also has his own mic for announcing. With the incredibly customizable Compass Control Pro we made a GUI with two large mute buttons so he can put the iPad on either side of him and just reach over and press one button to talk. With that one button press the audio from all other sources mute and his mic is heard loud and clear. The school absolutely loves that feature. All of the settings that Compass Control Pro provides are simple and straightforward for the end-user, and everyone at Brentwood Academy is so happy that they can now easily control the settings of the gymnasium. The faculty appreciates all of the new adjustments we made using the Compass Control Pro solution.”
