Seeking to equip, encourage, empower, and impact its congregation for a meaningful worship experience, Brooks United Methodist Church (UMC) offers a comprehensive range of ministries to better engage its congregation. Guided by the Rev. Jason L. Robinson, the church recently opened its brand-new worship center. To ensure the congregation could hear clearly and enjoy the music, a capable sound reinforcement system was deemed essential. Ultimately, church management selected mixer and loudspeaker technology drawn from the catalog of PreSonus Audio Electronics (www.presonus.com) of Baton Rouge, LA.
SSP Custom Sound LLC of York, PA, a design / build AV integration and live sound production firm, was contracted to design and deploy the church’s new sound reinforcement system. After consulting with church officials, the decision was made to install PreSonus StudioLive RM32AI and RM16AI 32- and 16-channel rack mount digital mixers with Active Integration, cascaded through an AVB Network along with a PreSonus CS18AI Ethernet/AVB control surface. For loudspeakers, the SSP Custom Sound team deployed two PreSonus WorxAudio X3 all-in-one compact line arrays augmented by two PreSonus WorxAudio X115S high SPL subwoofers. Steven Pappas, owner, system designer, and audio engineer for SSP Custom Sound LLC, discussed the project.

Live Streaming: Logistics
Live streaming is spreading amongst churches like wildfire but before you jump onto the live streaming train, make sure you really understand what is involved in producing a quality live stream!
Next month the pro-AV industry will converge on Las Vegas for the 2018 InfoComm tradeshow. Billed as ‘the audiovisual and integrated experience event’, the three day show will bring together 1000 exhibitors, demonstrating thousands of products, to 44,000 attendees from 110 countries, and ADJ will be there in force. From a large booth located in the Event Production Pavilion, right at the heart of the show, the ADJ team will showcase a variety of exciting and innovative professional lighting, video and products at booth #C3428.
Clark, a leading provider of innovative audio, video and lighting solutions with offices in Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Dallas, recently installed two Yamaha RIVAGE PM10 Digital Audio Consoles at Saddleback Church in Lake Forrest, CA; one PM10 is used for front of house, the second for monitors.
“The church was looking for reliability, sound quality, increased channel counts and, of course, ease of use,” states Jeff Stewart, Senior Consulting/Client Development at Clark. “The client’s existing consoles were at capacity so we decided to look at the Yamaha PM10 for their requirements. We first learned about the new Yamaha PM10 through media announcements in various trade publications, and felt the RIVAGE would suit their needs. So we arranged several demonstrations for the staff, who were already familiar with Yamaha console technology.”

We end our series on video post-production and delivery, talking about storage and delivery of your content. Just like in the previous parts, how you intend to use your content will ultimately determine the delivery method, and storage that will work for you.
Have a Plan:
The biggest challenge I see with churches embarking on a video ministry for the first time, is that they don’t have a process as all. This is mostly because it started with a volunteer, and his or her personal rig (for shooting and editing.) It evolved into a team, but the source content became scattered. “Who has the clip of the guest speaker from last Sunday,” you ask? “Oh, that’s on Jeff’s computer – he’s out of town on business.” Of course, that’s the content that your pastor asked specifically for in this weeks’ video news segment.
