The Modern Day Stained Glass.

The Church has existed for thousands of years and even in the earliest days, whether through sculptures, paintings, or stained glass, visuals and art have always played huge roles in telling the Gospel story. When it comes to church video, navigating through screen placement, video routing and distribution, and deciding between LED Walls vs. Projection can be overwhelming. Our team understands the need to make all of it simple and easy to comprehend, even for volunteers. Don’t worry, we’ve got your back.

Here A Screen, There A Screen.

Round rooms, square rooms, wide rooms, long rooms…you name it; we’ve worked with every shape room possible. No matter the shape, each requires one main thing: the ability for everyone to see what is happening on stage. Sometimes this means magnifying the presenter’s image on stage using IMAG and LED Video Walls, and sometimes this means a few large TVs mounted to the sides of the stage. Either way, we make sure everyone will be able to see what’s going on.

Screen placement is another thing we’re asked about. There are many ways to place video screens in a room, and there isn’t a standard set up that works well for everyone. Sometimes a single center screen works; sometimes only side screens are needed. We work with you and the venue you’re in to find the best layout for the experience you’re wanting to create.

LED Walls And Projectors - A Tale Of Two Displays.

When it comes down to it, each option provides its own benefits. Lamped projectors have been a staple in the church for years and they aren’t going away anytime soon. Laser projectors are a great option, albeit a bit pricier than their lamped counterparts, but won’t ever require purchasing new lamps. LED video walls have advanced to the point where this is now obtainable for many churches, big and small.

Outside of cost, the appearance of LED walls vs. projectors is definitely a factor to consider. With a projector, there will always be a large, white screen on stage when nothing is projected. However, an LED wall “disappears” when it’s not being used to allow for versatile stage designs and fewer distractions. In addition to this, LED walls look much better on camera when streaming or live broadcasting. It all comes down to what works best for your space and what fits your budget.

Wait... There Are HOW MANY Different Camera Types?

When it comes to camera options, it can all be a bit overwhelming. The recent shifts with 4K, 1080p, and HDR introduces even more things to consider. We make sure to keep up with all the advancements in cameras from cinema to broadcast equipment.

Typically, the best solutions are made up of multiple types of cameras to get the desired amount of flexibility from your system. A spec sheet can promise a lot of features but there is always more to the story with the camera. We aim to fully understand the “look” you want to make sure we’re able to select the right products to make that happen.

There And Back Again, A Video Signal's Journey.

Now that you’ve got video, where is it going? How is it getting there? Is it going online? Do you have a multi-site church and will it be streaming to other campuses? Do you just need a few video feeds going to other spaces in your building? Whether you have a room full of crying babies or a full overflow room, you’re going to need a solution to distribute video to all those separate locations. You’re also going to want a way to display weekly announcements slides and the like to different displays around the building. An essential within the modern church to keep people in the know. We make sure you have everything you need to distribute content anywhere there’s a screen.
