Daystar Television Network, an award-winning 24-hour faith-based network with over 5 billion viewers worldwide, has completed a massive upgrade of its communications capabilities using Riedel Communications’ Artist digital matrix intercom and Bolero wireless intercom.

The Daystar installation consists of an Artist-128 mainframe equipped to support AES67, VoIP, Dante, and analog intercom signals; 28 SmartPanel App-driven user interfaces; and 10 Bolero antennas to support 20 intercom beltpacks. A separate Bolero antenna in stand-alone mode will support remote ENG shoots.

Los Pentecostales de Newport News is a Pentecostal church serving the Hispanic community in Newport News, Virginia. With seemingly-boundless energy, Pastor Mario Zunzunegui delivers impassioned services and encourages strong community bonds. The band that supports him is talented and sounds its best at high volume and with abundant bass. Los Pentecostales had a high-performance sound reinforcement system that most churches – and indeed many clubs – would find more than adequate. But when local production and integration firm Sound Ideas provided a Danley rig for an outdoor Covid-19 service, Pastor Mario and the rest of the congregation saw new possibilities for clarity and impact. After a successful indoor demo, the church now has its own high-impact Danley system composed of SM80F full range loudspeakers FLX12 monitors, and a DNA 20k4 Pro amplifier.

Los Pentecostales de Newport started out years ago with an MI-grade sound reinforcement system and upgraded significantly three years ago with the help of Sound Ideas (design and installation) and Winter Sound (the actual sale of the equipment). Sound Ideas owner Paul Popadak continued his involvement with the church maintaining the new system. Thus, when Pastor Mario heard that Popadak was helping area churches deliver outdoor services during Virginia’s Covid-19 lockdown, he asked him to help at Los Pentecostales.

Tennessee-based Q Ideas hosts live events that convene leaders for insightful conversations about current issues at the intersection of faith and culture. When the COVID-19 pandemic forced the annual Q 2020 Conference to go virtual, the production companies behind the event leveraged software from Renewed Vision to quickly create an engaging digital experience that far surpassed the reach of the original in-person plan.

The Q 2020 Virtual Summit took place April 22 and 23, providing an interactive online learning experience featuring two days of inspiring talks, audience participation, Q&A with presenters, and educational resources. Georgia-based Velocity Productions and Braintrust Creative had produced Q’s in-person live events for many years, but had just three weeks to plan – and within that, once given the ‘green light’, only two weeks to implement – the pivot from the physical event to virtual.

12Stone Church (“12Stone”) is a multi-site church with eight locations spread across the counties of Gwinnett, Hall, and Barrow, GA. 12Stone was founded by Senior Pastor Kevin Myers and has been serving the community for the past 33 years. In addition to their onsite ministry, 12Stone reaches over 20,000 people through their digital ministry. The church has been using a variety of Royer microphones for over 10 years—first for studio and live event production miking and, most recently, for streaming services production to better reach their congregation during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Russell Allen, Worship Development Pastor/Music Director and Audio Director Dennis Frazier oversee the various aspects of the church’s audio production. They’ve acquired an impressive arsenal of Royer microphones, including R-121s, R-10s, R-122s, and an SF-24 Stereo Ribbon microphone. According to Allen, “We’ve had these mics for a good 10 years or so, but we really zoned into the R-121s and R-10s on the guitar cabs as recently as 4 years ago. Services are very contemporary in nature. We have 8 campuses with a full 8-10 person live band/vocal team. There are typically 3-5 front line vocalists and a 5-person backline (drums, bass, keys, and two guitars). We typically program a 3 song set list (same songs at each campus) per weekend.”
