KLANG Gets Into the Flow at Seven Rivers Church

Founded in 1983, Seven Rivers Church, a large and growing congregation in Lecanto, Florida, has adopted a KLANG immersive in-ear mixing solution for all of its stage monitoring needs. Installed as part of a full sound system upgrade completed last August by Louisville, Colorado-based Summit Integrated Systems, the church’s new KLANG setup is comprised of a DiGiCo Orange Box equipped with a DMI-KLANG card, which is capable of processing up to 64 inputs for 16 immersive in-ear mixes. The recent system retrofit project also saw the church install a new L-Acoustics A15-based PA system in its 1,000-seat auditorium, built in 2003.

Seven Rivers Church had been using IEMs for monitoring for a number of years prior to the upgrade, using a system that Seven Rivers Church Director of Worship Adam Hill describes as “serviceable” but lacking in sonic quality and functionality. While attending an InfoComm Show in nearby Orlando nearly five years ago, he encountered what was then a new brand for in-ear monitoring solutions in the US.

Marshall Electronics, a leading manufacturer of industry leading broadcast and proAV cameras and equipment, has collaborated with CyanView, designer and manufacturer of premiere universal camera control systems, to ensure that select Marshall cameras are compatible with its RCP control panel. This cooperation brings advanced color shading control to several Marshall cameras, as CyanView’s RCP supports Marshall Electronics Miniature HD Cameras (CV503, CV506, CV344, CV346, CV380, CV502), Zoom Block cameras (CV355, CV350) and its Lipstick cameras (CV226, CV225).

“Marshall grew up in the broadcast industry and we’ve been designing equipment for video engineers for over 40 years,” says Tod Musgrave, Director of Cameras at Marshall Electronics. “One of the key features of any camera used in a production workflow is to be able to remote paint and match cameras from the control room. We decided early on that all of our POV cameras had to have this ability and they needed to get integrated into as many third-party RCP and CCU decks as possible. The bottom line is making the customer’s job easier and that is what we have done with this collaboration.”

Ashly Audio, manufacturer of pro audio solutions, is adding new coursework to its Ashly University offerings to meet the expectation that 2021 will see a substantial uptick in pro AV integrations.

Ashly believes key verticals are poised for success as vaccine rollout continues across the globe.

Further, people who have been social distancing over the past year will likely soon be interested in returning to restaurants, live events, and sports – in a modified and safe manner – this summer.

Traders Point Christian Church is an Indiana-based church with multiple locations around Indianapolis. In 2020, the church presented their local AVL integrator, Force Tech, with the need for a new key light solution for one of their new mobile campus locations. “We wanted a fixture that had an LED engine, a full framing system, variable white control and the ability to fully pan and tilt. The fixture also needed to be road-worthy because our campus had to load in and out on a weekly basis,” states Alex Holt, Creative Experience Director at Traders Point.

Nick Olson, Sales Engineer at Force Tech, worked closely with Traders Point on the upgrade and proposed Elation’s Fuze Profile CW ™, an LED framing moving head with White LED engine and gobo / color options that can be used anywhere a fully automated ellipsoidal fixture is required. The church acquired the luminaire and first had the opportunity to use the fixtures while building out the lighting package for one of their new mobile campus locations.

As with many events last year, the annual Nuland Verlicht community celebration in the Netherlands had to transition to a virtual format in 2020. However, instead of scaling back, rising star Lighting Designer Bart Stofmeel instead used this as an opportunity to create a truly awe-inspiring light show in the large and atmospheric church that hosted the recording. Using hundreds of fixtures, including ADJ 7P HEX IP and 32 HEX Panel IP washes and Vizi CMY300 moving heads, he created a stunning backdrop to the evening of performances that was enjoyed by thousands of people from the comfort and safety of their own homes.

Nuland Verlicht (which translates to ‘Nuland Illuminated’) is an annual community event held around the village of Nuland in the Dutch province of North Brabant. Established by a group of local friends in 2016, it is designed to bring light to the darkness of winter, raise money for charity, and to give sick and disabled children (the event’s VIPs) an experience they will never forget. Nuland Verlicht usually consists of two parts: a parade of illuminated vehicles, each hosting a VIP guest, which travels through the streets of the community, and a party evening that brings together people of all ages.
