How Can Audio, Video and Lighting Help Engage the House of Worship Experience?

 

  • Enhanced live streaming for sermons?
  • Multiple high-definition (HD) projection systems that could be used during concerts?
  • What AV elements were key to making the house of worship experience exciting and meaningful, and also drawing in new members?

These were just a few of the questions asked by First Baptist Oviedo’s church leadership as they began work on their new facility.

From the depths of their 2,800 seat main sanctuary to an advanced production suite known as “the bridge,” this Florida church has since introduced three Sony PMW-EX3 camcorders for live streaming, a Digidesign digital mixing console for pitch-perfect audio and rear projection rooms for the ultimate worship experience. Discover more of their dynamic, user-friendly solutions with AVI-SPL’s video tour, featuring Oviedo’s senior production associate, Josh Felix, as well as Ed Sullivan, senior design engineer, AVI-SPL.

Free consultations from the Control Room Group. Who says there’s no such thing as a “free lunch?”

By David Jones, Sales Manager Control Room Group

Just recently, I had the opportunity to review a control center request for proposal that was sent to us by a client in one of our vertical markets. We had been working with this client on a regular basis over the past few years helping them design their control room facility.

De ja vu all over again set in as I was sure I’d seen the specification before. After a little investigation I was surprised to find that we had indeed responded to the very same specification not once but twice in the last year.

Each of the three clients had used the same firm as their consulting engineering company and each had been given the exact same specification down to the bullet points.

Although the three companies were prominent in the same vertical market, the problem is that the three had entirely different needs, missions and budgets insofar as their technology requirements in the control center. As I’ve mentioned before in my blog, there is no one size fits all control room design or set of control room technologies, but let me say it one more time – There is no one size fits all control room design or set of control room technologies.

The Control Room Group has more than 450 clients that we’ve designed and built control rooms for over the last eight years and we’ve never built the same room twice. The likelihood that these three clients had exactly the same control room requirements was pretty slim.

Also, as you might have heard me say here before that the Control Room Group works with all the manufactures of mission critical components to create a custom solution that is specifically designed to meet your unique control room requirements using common off the shelf components.

So, here’s where the “free lunch” comes in. If you’re in the process of designing a control room facility using an in house or outside resource (aka consultant) I’ll make you a special offer.

If you or your consultant contacts me at David.Jones@avispl.com before the end of the year – December 31, 2010 – we will provide your project with either a FREE system design that exactly meets your needs or a FREE system design review and subsequent comment and suggestion report.

So, maybe there really is such a thing as a “free lunch?”
