PixelFLEX helps transform a new worship environment for Calvary Chapel

In Web Articles by admin

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.”

Using a Live Video Production Camera

by Paul Alan Clifford

There’s a lot that’s different about live production cameras from DSLRs or even consumer camcorders.

Let’s start with the lens. A production lens has the ability to use a servo-controlled zoom as well as a mechanical focus. While the aperture is normally controlled with a CCU, it’s also possible to control that with a ring on the lens.

Production camera usually have a large view finder, but may also have an eye piece and even a flip-out viewfinder.

Normally, you’ll mount the camera on a tripod with both pan and tilt locks. The tilt lock should always be engaged when the camera isn’t being controlled by an operator.

Some cameras can be used as camcorders as well and may have configurations which allow studio control that can be removed for field use. These cameras may also be used handheld and their controls make that easy.

VUE AUDIOTECHNIK Modernizes Sound System in United Methodist Church of Vista

In Web Articles by admin

untitledEstablished in 1954, The United Methodist Church of Vista (UMC Vista) has been committed to serving its community through spoken word, classic and contemporary worship services, and a music program that includes a chancel choir, praise band, hand bell choir and a developing children’s music ministry. When UMC Vista recently decided to improve the sound system in its sanctuary, they called on Sound Image to facilitate the installation of a new audio system built around VUE Audiotechnik loudspeaker systems.

VUE’s i-Class Integrator Systems proved to be the right solution for UMC Vista. Four VUE i-8 Compact Full Range Foreground Systems and two i-2×4.5 Surface-Mount Foreground Systems were hung on the ceiling between the fixtures, directed down toward the congregation seating area. The i-8s and i-2×4.5s provide consistent, even coverage across the congregation area without spilling sound toward the fixtures, causing unwanted sonic reflections.

In Web Articles by admin

Bethel%20World%20Outreach%20-%20web%201Originally founded in 1984, the Bethel World Outreach Church has seen its ministry grow to where they currently hold worship services in six locations nationwide. As part of this growth, the worship family located in Brentwood, TN, recently underwent a building campaign to expand their ministry even further and in doing so they wished to make LED video a part of their worship services. While attending the WFX tradeshow in Nashville, Senior Pastor James Lowe found his solution for the new facility which was FLEXLite 6.9mm LED video tiles from PixelFLEX.

“With our Bethel Build Campaign underway, we were also about to undertake a month-long sermon series where our pastor wanted to show HD video elements during the message,” began Technical Director Garrett Hestla. “This was something entirely new for us and since we wanted to bring LED video into the new facility as well, we started looking at all the LED video products that could really help deliver an impactful message. I’ve known about PixelFLEX for a while and so after our pastor also met them at WFX, we agreed the FLEXLite 6.9mm would be a great solution for our worship services.”
