As the current situation caused by COVID-19 remains fluid, managing the overflow of information has become a complex challenge. VuWall is looking to partner with those who are on the front lines working to keep communities safe and healthy by offering its VuWall2 visualization tool as a free download, allowing organizations to create a temporary video wall solution.

“In this time of crisis, coordination teams within municipalities, newsrooms, and healthcare facilities are actively monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and managing response efforts. These decision-makers need to access all kinds of information in order to make fast decisions and share information with their colleagues and in some cases, the public,” said Paul Vander Plaetse, CEO at VuWall. “We hope that by offering our VuWall2 for no cost as a way to create a temporary emergency video wall control center, we can aid key organizations in managing this influx of data and help keep people informed. We want to assist as many organizations as possible, which is why we will be offering first come, first served setup and support.”

With live-streaming soaring, the class-leading Shogun 7 HDR monitor-recorder-switcher is in high demand. It’s easy-to-use live switching and multi-channel ISO recording function make it quick and easy to deploy into settings from houses of worship to colleges, to vloggers front rooms. It offers a no stress setup to create live multi-camera content in no time at all.

This weekend saw churches turning to live streaming to continue serving their congregations during lockdowns. One London church was able to stream their Sunday service direct to YouTube with the help of the Shogun 7. Like many British churches they had no existing live-streaming infrastructure so needed a simple solution that could be set up quickly by the more technical members of the congregation. Using borrowed older Sony FS700 cameras connected to the Atomos Shogun 7 monitor-recorder-switcher they were able to set up and operate a whole multi-camera system with minimal setup, all at a safe distance.

Danley Sound Labs’ SBH-Series Loudspeakers Moves Toronto’s Knox Presbyterian Church From Cavernous, Inarticulate Sound to Fantastic Intelligibility and Musicality

In Audio, Audio Install News, home_page, Image, Install News, Uncategorized, Web Articlesby admin

The history of Knox Presbyterian Church in Toronto, Ontario stretches back all the way to 1820, and it has been in its current building across the street from the University of Toronto since 1909. Its ornate, high-ceiling sanctuary accommodates 550 people and inspires congregants with its sublime beauty. Unfortunately, Knox’s sound reinforcement system was nowhere close to commensurate. Poor intelligibility was largely due to a renovation that radically changed the acoustic nature of the space rendering the previous system untenable. Couple that with a transition from traditional to contemporary music forms created the perfect storm that left the church with inarticulate sound. The AV integration department at local music store Sherwood recently changed all that with a new sound reinforcement system that leverages the exceptional pattern control of Danley Sound Labs SBH-Series loudspeakers. The new Danley system keeps energy off the walls and treats congregants to crystal-clear, point-source fidelity.

Hearing Is Believing: It’s All Danley Gear For New Land O’Lakes Campus

Now celebrating its twenty-sixth year, Grace Family Church started with just eighty people in a former jazzercise storefront next to a bar in Tampa, Florida. It has subsequently grown to over 12,000 members! To accommodate so many members, Grace Family Church operates satellite campuses. Its sixth campus opened in Land O’ Lakes, a suburb of Tampa, and AVL firm All Pro Integrated Systems, of Pensacola, Florida, helped design and install the AVL system there. Since many of the decision-makers at Grace Family Church had never heard a Danley Sound Labs system, All Pro arranged for a demo that proved persuasive. The now-finished system includes Danley’s patented point-source Synergy Horn loudspeaker technology, its patented Tapped Horn subwoofer technology, and seven Danley multi-channel amplifiers with built-in DSP and presets for every Danley loudspeaker and subwoofer. Perhaps in the spirit of its origins, the Land O’ Lakes campus is built into a former big box store… but instead of just eighty, it can accommodate 1,000 people!
