Adding to its robust and expansive line up of Cinema EOS digital cinema cameras, Canon has introduced the EOS C300 Mark III, the nextgeneration Super 35mm workhorse cinema camera. The new camera features a new Dual Gain Output (DGO) sensor and, like the full-frame EOS C500 Mark II, employs a modular design and an interchangeable lens mount that allows users to customize the camera easily. The modular nature of the C300 Mark III allows individual Houses of Worship to tailor the camera to their needs. The camera offers clean HDMI, and up to 12G-SDI output, allowing for virtually seamless connectivity with many of the compatible streaming solutions. What’s more, an upcoming firmware update for the C300 Mark III (as well as its siblings, the EOS C500 Mark II and XF705) will enable the live switching of framerates, ideal for the dynamic needs of a wide variety of HOW content production, including broadcasting….
NewTek has long been a leader in providing houses of worship with solutions for video production. Using IP-based video technology – backed by the free-to-use NDI protocol developed in-house and made available to all manufacturers – the ability to live stream worship services, and make it look like regular TV, has never been easier or more affordable.
The company, part of the Vizrt Group, recently announced the latest version of one of its most effective solutions for the house of worship market: the TriCaster® Mini 4K.
What was already a complete, compact live multicamera video production system, the newly enhanced TriCaster Mini 4K adds groundbreaking features like Live Story Creator and LivePanel. These are built-in software offerings designed to make the production of network-quality shows even easier for lone producers or small teams – whether they are beginners or seasoned video professionals…
With the travel, gathering and distancing restrictions that come with the Covid-19 pandemic, Elation Professional’s sales team and product specialists are demoing some of Elation’s newest lighting products from the comfort and safety of their own homes in a video series called “Virtual at Home Demo.”
Published each week on Elation’s YouTube channel, each video provides an overview of the key features and unique benefits of some of Elation’s newest lighting products, a demonstration that gives lighting pros an opportunity to assess if a luminaire is right for their needs.
Describing GLP’s award-winning X4 Bar 20 as “one of the greatest fixtures ever designed”, E2i Design’s Josh Holowicki had no hesitation in specifying it as an essential component in a major technological upgrade at Church of the Highlands’ Grants Mill broadcast campus in Alabama, USA. His decision was backed by Broadcast Lighting Director, Griffin McCravy.
E2i has been a partner with the Church since 2012, providing solutions for their broadcast and extension campuses with lighting and LED video technology. But this latest project was a year in the making due to their determination to select the very best fixtures and build flexibility within the already constructed worship facility. In their determination to create a ‘tour grade’ technical infrastructure, the visual upgrade to the stage space is an exciting and ongoing process.
The challenges an audio engineer faces are never ending. So how do you roll with the punches while at the same time keeping a high-level of professionalism? And how do you ensure great sound? You’ll hear from experienced engineers Ron Cook and Tim Holder about FOH, live streaming and working festivals.
No input list, no sound check, no familiarity with the scheduled bands? 40-minute sets with only 20-minute changeovers? Need to build a setup on your console on the fly? You’ll learn about these situations and much, much more.
As more and more Houses of Worship turn to technology to stay with the times, many leaders are looking to enhance their video and audio production capabilities as a way to maximize worshipers’ experiences in- and outside of their facility.
Shure understands that HOW tech teams shouldn’t have to buy half a dozen products to film a highquality piece of video content one day and capture live music performances the next. Enter the MV88+ Video Kit, an all-in-one mobile solution for capturing professional quality recordings on-the-go.
With 64 built-in engines, LumiCore allows you to merge and route up to 64 x 4 input sources toward 64 newly defined universes. This way, LumiCore becomes the ideal solution to isolate your control setup in a house of worship, on a festival, or in a theatre or TV studio.
As technology is evolving towards full networked solutions (ArtNet or sACN directly to the fixtures), LumiCore provides all the flexibility of the LumiNode but directly on the network, with up to 256 input universes merged and routed towards max 128 output universes. All of this with extremely low latency….
Hosted from ADJ’s Los Angeles HQ by members of the company’s in-house team of technical experts, each of the new Stay Connected video broadcasts will focus on a different lighting technology or application. The presenters will showcase the latest ADJ products, explain their features and discuss ways in which they can be creatively deployed. Broadcast via Facebook Live, the videos will also feature interactive elements allowing viewers to ask questions directly to the product specialists on camera.
“Every day, I am hearing more positive stories from lighting professionals who are being able to get back out there and work in the business that we all love,” comments ADJ USA’s National Sales Manager, Alfred Gonzales. “However, there is still a long way to go until things are fully back to normal, so here at ADJ we want to continue to stay connected with our customers and users by continuing our series of Facebook Live videos throughout the summer. Each session will focus in on a different area of our product range, giving viewers in-depth insights and lots of valuable practical tips and ideas.”

Radio Active Designs (RAD) has teamed up with Practical Show Technology to host an RF webinar on Tuesday, July 7 at 4:00 pm EDT. One of the topics discussed will be the end of using production wireless equipment that operates in the 616-653 and 663-698 MHz spectrum as of July 13, 2020.
“Everything we have been talking about for years is finally wrapping up,” explains James Stoffo, CTO, RAD. “One of the 600 MHz auction winners began to energize three years ago, and the industry has been working through the TV channel repack ever since. The moment of reckoning is finally here – any equipment that can tune to the 616-653 and 663-698 MHz bands as of July 13 will lose its FCC type certification and will be illegal.”
