High Desert Church Relies on FOR-A’s HVS-2000 Video Switcher for Multi-Site Video Streaming

In Install News by admin

High Desert Church-1-resizedCalifornia’s High Desert Church is a multi-site house of worship with four campuses that serve a total congregation of over 8,000 people. Looking for a switcher that enabled them to live stream sermons from their main campus to their other sites, High Desert turned to FOR-A. The church recently purchased the company’s HVS-2000 video switcher to fulfill all of the growing congregation’s video production needs.

High Desert Church’s pastors speak live every weekend at their Victorville campus auditorium, and the HVS-2000 allows for a live IMAG cut at High Desert Church-1-resizedVictorville while also broadcasting to the house of worship’s other sites. The HVS-2000 offers plenty of inputs and outputs for the church’s needs, and its 12 AUX outputs gives operators more control over what’s being broadcasted.

Hour of Power At Shepherd’s Grove Gets Broadcast Friendly Background With ILUMINARC

In Install News by admin

Shepherds Grove Aqua_The Hour of Power broadcast from Shepherd’s Grove church has touched countless lives through its uplifting and inspiring messages. Recently, the church decided to enhance the quality of its world-famous broadcast services even further by switching to an all-LED lighting system. A key part of this lighting upgrade is a beautiful and engaging colorwash on the wall behind the altar, provided by a collection of 41 Colorist 12Qa linear RGBA fixtures from the ILUMINARC division of CHAUVET Professional.

“Chad Blake, the Executive Pastor of Shepherd’s Grove, and his team gave us a clear directive to add a new all-LED lighting system that would lend a fresh look to their worldwide broadcast services,” said Kent Flemming, project manager at Pacific Coast Entertainment, which installed the new lighting system. “Since moving out of the Crystal Cathedral, the Hour of Power hasn’t had the ideal lighting system for its broadcasts. Pastor Blake and his team wanted LED fixtures for the rich colors and quality of the light they deliver, as well as the added energy efficiency they bring.”

MichaelMontanari_ChristCommunityChurch“It is a phenomenal sounding console, but for us the flexibility and the configurability of the L500 is its biggest selling point.”

Christ Community Church Technical Director Michael Montanari has specified SSL L500 consoles for both Front of House and Monitor positions at its St Charles campus. The consoles were purchased from SSL Live partner TC Furlong.

The 2000 capacity St Charles Campus auditorium has a regular Saturday afternoon service and two Sunday morning services, as well as a number of larger events throughout the year, including special worship nights and visiting touring acts. The Sunday services are streamed live over a dedicated fibre network live to the church’s other three regional campuses. “We put a high value on production,” says Montanari. “Concert-style audio, but probably not at quite as high an SPL!”

As most production crew and artists at the church are volunteers, the challenge for Montanari was finding technology that could deliver a big step up in quality, as well as being intuitive and flexible enough to accommodate a wide range of operators: “We want really high end audio, we want it to be able to handle everything that a professional audio guy can throw at a console, but it also has to be able to be run by a volunteer.
