Champion Forest Baptist Church’s steady expansion over many decades has recently accelerated, inspiring the launch of satellite locations around its central Houston, Texas location. CFBC’s services are decidedly contemporary, with an energetic praise and worship band that’s unleashed at inspiring volumes and supported by full production video and theatrical lighting. Instead of receiving a simulcast from the central campus, each CFBC satellite has its own live pastor. The pastors at the different campuses work together to deliver a common message on a given Sunday. Based on their timely and professional work in the past, integration firm, Clair Solutions, installed the AVL systems at CFBC’s newest, 800-seat, satellite location as well as the student building in North Klein, Texas.
“We put in a new line array system manufactured by our sister company, Clair Brothers, along with a new DiGiCo console at CFBC’s main location many years ago,” explained Mike Mason, regional vice president at Clair Solutions’ Dallas office. “The Texas-based AVL consultants at Idibri designed that system, and we’ve worked with Idibri on numerous other successful projects in the Texas region and around the country. The folks at Champion Forest were really pleased with how that job came together, got exactly what they needed at a fair price, and it has continued to serve them well. They launched their North Klein location a few years ago by initially renting space in a school. When it grew to a size that justified its own building, CFBC again hired Idibri to design an awesome AVL system and Clair Solutions to make it a cost-effective reality.”

At Cedarview Community Church, we teach God’s word, prioritize worship, welcome God’s spirit, proclaim salvation, seek God’s face, serve God’s people and have a heart for missions.  As we strive to equip the local church body to grow and to be Christs’ extended hand to the community and world, we aim to do it with excellence and purpose by directing all attention to Jesus Christ. It’s important for the church to be focused on God’s word and to honor its authority over every aspect of our life and conduct.  With that comes a heart of worship, a sensitivity the Holy Spirit in line with New Testament Scriptures and desire to reach the lost. 

I have worked with Cedarview a few times. I actually attend the church and serve as their Technical Director, and over time – because of the age of the gear in the church – they needed to look at modernizing and replacements. In some cases, the church ran into emergency situations where gear needed to be replaced immediately.  As an integration contractor, we set up a stewardship approach which allows churches to plan for natural evolution for failure and obsolescence, identifying and planning for replacement equipment before it reaches a fail point.

Leading the Way for Live Streaming Services

After just two months of live streaming, the Olivet United Methodist Church in Coatesville, Pennsylvania, has been able to connect with church members from all around the world, including some who have moved away, some who were temporarily home-bound, and other who were on vacation. The new live streaming system was in place just before Christmas in 2018. In that time, the church media team has been able to live stream a candlelight service, the 2018 Christmas service, and a special baptism. The live streaming system has connected house bound parishioners like Tori Parker who commented “Glad I can be here, even from my couch as I recover from surgery.”

The system has also connected members of the church who have moved away from the area, like Agnes Miner who says “What a blessing to happen (though I’m not convinced things just “happen”) to check my Facebook feed just a few minutes before 10 this morning and discover the first live feed of your service! And then to discover Pastor Spiegelhalder was participating, and the service included the baptism of his great-granddaughter! It’s been 40 years since our family lived in Coatesville and were active at Olivet. What a joy to participate in the service remotely!” It’s comments like these that remind us why we live stream church services.

In the included video above, you will get the chance to see a behind the scenes look at the new church video production system installed in the Olivet United Methodist Church. This system includes two PTZOptics cameras, the PTZOptics Producer Kit and a whole lot more!

Greear lead pastor in 2001, where he also serves as one of the church’s Directional Elders and a member of the Executive Team. Recently, the church decided to deploy three video walls at the Brier Creek Campus, which in addition to being the church’s main campus, also serves as the primary broadcast campus. To ensure their investment would help maximize the effectiveness of their services, the decision was made to install the Rhodium Series LED Video Display from Lakeland, FL-based Vanguard LED Displays.
DP Design of Milwaukee, WI, an AV design / build firm with a nationwide reach that specializes in the worship market, was contracted to design and install the new video display system at The Summit Church. Company founder and CEO David Price, who oversees the company’s sales, system design, and installations, elected to deploy a total of 240 Vanguard Rhodium Series P4 video display cabinets. He discussed the project.

To support its transition to HD and ultimately 4K live production of weekly worship services, Long Hollow Baptist Long Hollow Baptist Church Upgrades to Panasonic 4K/HD Studio and Pan/Tilt/Zoom Cameras, 4K+ Laser Projectors for Live Production/Streaming of Worship
To support its transition to HD and ultimately 4K live production of weekly worship services, Long Hollow Baptist Church (Hendersonville, TN) invested in seven Panasonic AK-UC4000 4K/HD/HDR studio camera systems, as well as an AW-UE150 4K/HD pan/tilt/zoom camera and two PT-RQ22KU 4K+ large-venue laser projectors.
Take One Film & Video (Hendersonville, TN) provided design and system integration services for the upgrade.
Long Hollow’s 42,300+ sq.ft. venue—its broadcast campus–houses the main sanctuary, which can hold up to 2600 people. This location’s 8 a.m., 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. Sunday services are broadcast live to a satellite campus in Gallatin, TN, as well as to Facebook Live and the church’s web site — https://longhollow.com/. Entire worship services and the pastor’s messages are available on-demand on the site as well.
Tyler Hirth, Long Hollow’s Production Manager, said, “This upgrade was long overdue, with our prior SD gear really aging out. With the imperative to put entire services online–live and for VOD–the standard-definition video looked poor, at best. Also, our new system needed to be robust and flexible enough to support the many conferences and events we host in our worship center.”
