SpotlightSound Image is the 2009 PRO AV Spotlight Award winner in the House of Worship category, for their Eastlake Community Church project.

The Spotlight Awards recognize the best in professional audio/video design and installation. Entries in the Spotlight Award competition came from around the world, in vertical market categories including Corporate, Retail, Education, House of Worship, Government, Health Care, Entertainment/Arts, Museum, and Hospitality/Restaurant/Casino.

“The PRO AV Spotlight Awards are the premiere showcase for the best in AV installations. All of the installations entered in this year’s program were outstanding and choosing winners was no easy task for the judges,” said Jon Yoffie, Associate Publisher of PRO AV magazine. “These winning projects are truly the best of the best; they set the standard for what AV installations should bring to a project.”

Eastlake Community Church is a large, non-denominational, Christian church located in Chula Vista, California. The project was a design/build collaboration between Eastlake’s project development team, which included their Lead Pastor, Worship Pastor, and Creative Director, and a design, engineering and installation team from Sound Image’s Contracting Division.

“The Eastlake project was unlike others for many reasons, not the least of which was their desire to have an AV System that was uncompromised by the usual architectural, aesthetic or financial restrictions that face most churches. In other words, the quality and effectiveness of the AV System design and implementation became the priority in almost all critical decision-making phases of planning, development, construction and implementation” said Michael Fay, Senior Engineer with Sound Image.
