Choosing the Right Mixers for Your Channel Count

In Audio, Audio Industry News, Continuing Education, home_page, Image, Industry News, Web Articlesby Media

This might seem like a basic question, but how you answer this question has potentially far-reaching consequences. My method is looking 5 years into the future and starting with where the needs of the sound system and input sources will likely be in that amount of time. This helps focus leadership to thinking about where growth is likely to occur, what goals can or should be achieved in that span of time, and how that affects the needs of the sound system.

Generally, my experience has shown churches tend to want a slightly higher channel count, if only to have the additional flexibility. This has tended to be a jump of about 8 channels or so. It’s rare to see a church move from a 16-channel mixer to a 32-channel or larger mixer. It does happen, but only if there is a plan for aggressive growth in the worship ministry.

HoverCam Partners With Zoom to Simplify Remote and Blended Learning

HoverCam, an innovative technology leader in the education market, announced that it has redesigned its Flex 11 software to fully integrate with Zoom, one of the chosen UC platforms for remote classrooms. HoverCam is already compatible with popular remote conferencing programs including Skype, Google Hangouts™, Google Meet™, and Microsoft Teams™. Now, teachers can initiate and schedule Zoom calls directly from HoverCam’s free, comprehensive document camera software. This integration eliminates any complexity, errors, and time wasted opening and switching between the two applications, delivering an intuitive workflow for teachers and an engaging, productive learning experience for students.

“We recognized some teachers were confused using their document camera, with Zoom requiring settings changes that interrupted their lesson and were a distraction to students,” said Bayley Pierson, HoverCam’s marketing director. “By integrating Zoom, we’re standing by our commitment to transform the teaching and learning experience — whether it’s in a classroom, remotely, or blended learning — by engineering simple, smart solutions. With Zoom capabilities built into Flex 11, teachers don’t have to spend valuable time wrestling with technology and can get back to creating an engaging, successful lesson. We recognize some users have security concerns and may not feel comfortable using third-party video conferencing programs, so we’ve made it easy to disable Zoom functionality within the software settings.”
