Understanding Speaker Placement

In Uncategorized, Web Articles by tfwm

by Bryan Cole

Speaker placement has to some always been a black art – sound being a technology that you can’t physically “see” it’s not always a simple self-explanatory thing. If you are installing a new sound system in your facility, one of the biggest influences on sound quality that you can have is to have an industry professional “measure” the room response using proper test equipment. This will allow you to understand more about what sound does to the room – or maybe better put – what your room does to the sound. So much of the end sonic product of a room is the result the room’s shape and structure, not the choice of loudspeaker as many would think. Unfortunately, churches all too often reach for the “best sounding” (aka best marketed) loudspeaker, and the result is less than hoped. A less costly loudspeaker, properly placed in a well-treated room, will allow your loudspeaker to do what it does best – deliver sound to the listener – while having the room do less of what it is good at: adding many more “out of time” arrivals at the listener’s ear.

Video Post-Production and Delivery: Part Three

In Extras, home_page, Video, Web Articles by tfwm

by John Chevalier and Bryan Cole

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.
