The Growth of Satellite Churches is Changing Their A/V Strategy
The Mountain Springs Church plans on growing the number of satellite locations in the next few decades and it is already developing an A/V installation and upgrade policy. Most recently, the church purchased three DiGiCo SD series digital mix consoles and uses a Panasonic PTW6300 6000 ANSI projector at their two locations. They also use Black Magic Design video switchers and ProPresenter projection systems. Sight and Sound Technologies did both installations.
For Hillcrest Church, which has 4,300 parishioners, hiring fulltime A/V staff members is necessary to accomplish its plans for growth. In the end as A/V systems evolved the church found it actually saved money because it wasn’t relying on and paying for contractors. Such additions include Panasonic PT-DW100U 10,000 lumen 4-lamp projectors, a 96-channel Avid Venue D-Show console, a Black Magic Design ATEM 2 M/E switcher and two Black Magic Design ATEM 1 M/E broadcast panels.
