Riedel’s MediorNet real-time signal transport, processing, and routing technology powers a unique drive-up ministry for Cherry Hills Community Church, a large house of worship based in suburban Denver. In response to social distancing measures, the church presents its Sunday services to worshippers gathered in the parking lot in their cars — with MediorNet providing reliable and expandable transport of all video, audio, and intercom signals between the control room and the outdoor stage. The gatherings are also streamed to various social networks and OTT channels.

“We had used MediorNet previously to handle camera feeds and intercom for an event taking place on the other side of our campus. Therefore, MediorNet was the first thing that came to mind when I was thinking about how to get interconnectivity between the building and a trailer set up in the parking lot that served as the front of house mix position for our drive-up services,” said Chris Thomas, Technical Arts Director, Cherry Hills Community Church. “Also, we had only three days’ notice to get the drive-up ministry up and running in time for weekend services. The Riedel support team was incredibly helpful, and they were able to show us via remote conferencing just how fast and easy it is to set up MediorNet with its simple drag-and-drop configuration.”

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.

Kevin Yamada, creative director and owner of Studio 637, has seen his business take on multiple roles in the video and audio production industry over the last several years. He recently began using Marshall Electronics CV502-MB Miniature Broadcast camera for use with musical, live stream and reality television programs. Beginning as a recording studio, Yamada has grown Studio 637 into a world-class facility offering recording, video and live streaming production services to clients with a myriad of projects ranging from music and television to corporate and non-profit events and productions.
As the studio’s services continue to grow, Yamada needed to ensure that his gear can accommodate his clients’ growing list of production needs. When he found out about Marshall Electronics’ CV502 camera, he instantly found a place for it in his arsenal of production gear. “We love the Marshall CV502 because it has great image quality,” says Yamada. “It’s small and discreet, and it’s loaded with a ton of great features. Its small form factor and black finish makes it the perfect camera to put right in the middle of the action without being in the way. It supplements our larger format cameras in that it can capture unique angles that would be difficult for a large camera and operator to achieve.”

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.”
