HOLLYWOOD’S MOSAIC CHURCH FINDS DANLEY GEAR PERFECT FOR CHALLENGING WORSHIP SPACE

J2-Frosted-Glass-RecoveredThe history of Mosaic Church goes back to the 1940s, when the then-called Bethel Baptist Church met for the first time with 35 members in a rented storefront. In the ensuing decades, the church broke records for missionaries and founded numerous churches throughout southern California and the world. Today, Mosaic maintains that drive with a (very) contemporary worship style that’s big on energy and spirit. The church moved into a new 750-seat sanctuary in 2012 with the sound reinforcement system that had been designed for its previous space. It didn’t fit very well, but now Mosaic is back to rocking concert-style services with a full-blooded Danley Sound Labs sound reinforcement system, with point-source clarity, low distortion, stellar pattern control, and abundant SPL.

Preston Trail Community Church Delivers a More Robust Spiritual Education

Preston Trail Church features Christie projector (2)Christie® was the solution Clark, a leading audio, video and lighting provider specializing in houses of worship, selected for Preston Trail Community Church in Frisco, Texas. Renowned for their exceptional reliability and brightness, six Christie 3DLP® projectors including the Christie Roadie HD+30K and the Roadster HD20K-J, light up the church’s interconnected worship spaces with crystal-clear images for a more robust service. The worship center includes the 1,800-seat auditorium featuring a two side screens framing a center screen, a 500-seat youth center, and two smaller spaces for younger children.

Since its beginning as a mobile ministry in 2004, Preston Trail’s unique presentational style of communicating the message has consistently resonated with the faithful and helped grow the congregation to over 3,000 worshipers. When its pastors decided to establish a permanent worship venue, they moved from an old manufacturing facility into a new, ground-up constructed building. Collaborating with Clark early in the facility’s construction, Preston Trail created an infrastructure upon which Clark could integrate top-of-the-line audio, video and lighting technology that would meet its current and future needs.

PixelFLEX helps transform a new worship environment for Calvary Chapel

untitledWorship Pastor Tony Monto uses FLEXLite 3.9mm LED video technology to create an ideal worship environment during a temporary relocation of the worship family.

Located in Las Vegas, NV, Calvary Chapel Spring Valley is a growing worship family who is also dedicated to building a strong educational foundation through the Calvary Chapel Christian School on site as well. As the congregation has now outgrown their current facility, they have temporarily relocated to the school’s gymnasium in order to hold their worship services. With a desire to bring LED video into the new facility as well, Calvary Chapel then took this opportunity to incorporate the technology into the gymnasium environment and they did so using FLEXLite 3.99mm LED from PixelFLEX.

“When we began our capital building campaign, we knew we wanted LED video in our new worship facility, but we also needed it to help create a more ideal environment in the gymnasium during our relocation,” began Tony Monto, Worship and Young Adults Pastor. “When looking at which LED product to choose we were driven by size and wanting to get the highest quality within our budget, but we also had to be aware of weight since the wall would be temporarily hung in the school gymnasium. Also keeping in mind that we would have to set-up and tear-down the wall each week, we first started looking at LED curtains, but as we started speaking with PixelFLEX they explained how the best solution would be the FLEXLite 3.9mm and they were completely right.”

Fulcrum Acoustic Unveils New Subcardioid Subwoofer

untitledFulcrum Acoustic, creators of high-performance professional loudspeaker technologies, have introduced the FLS115 Subcardioid Subwoofer.

A powerful complement to the companion FL283 Subcardioid Lone Array, the FLS115 is ideal for the most demanding venues, including performing arts centers, houses of worship, sporting facilities, and nightclubs.

Incorporating Fulcrum’s acclaimed Passive Cardioid Technology™, the FLS115 dramatically reduces excessive rear low frequency radiation without the need for additional drivers, amplifiers, or signal processing. The FLS115 delivers superior LF directional control and rear rejection without the loss of efficiency commonly found in active cardioid devices.

Like the companion FL283, the FLS115 enclosure and rigging are designed to accommodate up to 20 degrees of splay between adjacent cabinets, providing for more sharply curved arrays than comparable line array systems.

Valley Baptist Church Relies on FOR-A in Major Facility HD Upgrade

Church’s million-dollar control room upgrade was completed in under a week

Valley-Baptist-Control-Room-ResizedBakersfield, C.A.-based Valley Baptist Church built their SDI digital facility in 2005 when an HD control room wasn’t an affordable option. Last year around the tenth anniversary of its video production facility, the church decided it was time for an upgrade. Valley Baptist worked with systems integrator Technical Innovation’s Blue Hat Design to complete the church’s major million-dollar control room transition to HD in just six days. A major component of the upgrade was a FOR-A video production package that included: the HVS-2000 switcher, MV-4200 multi-viewer, FA-505 multi-channel signal processor, MFR-5000 routing switcher and LTS-60 media archiving server.

Valley Baptist Church often live streams video content – from Sunday services, Q&A’s with pastors, and special events, to streaming sessions during its popular Bible school. The house Valley-Baptist-Control-Room-Resizedof worship also shares its video content via social media and makes on-demand recordings available online. The church often relies on its volunteers for its video production, so Valley Baptist needed equipment that was both user-friendly and high quality for its HD upgrade. The HVS-2000 video switcher proved to be the best switcher for the house of worship’s needs.
