Parkside United Methodist Church Sound and Video System

Parkside United Methodist Church Audio, Video and Streaming System

System Requirements

Parkside United Methodist Church in Camden, NJ was looking for a complete overhaul of their existing A/V system and also wanted to add a streaming system.  The sound system had to provide high-quality speech and music reinforcement for both the main floor and the balcony.  The Church wanted large screens on the left and right side walls so that everyone could see the lyrics or videos.


System Design

We took laser measurements of the sanctuary to determine the optimal screen size and projector brightness.  This information was also used to select the best loudspeakers for the room that would cover the balcony and main floor.  Working with our design team, we created a solution that would provide high-quality sound, video, and streaming.

Equipment list:

  • JBL CBT column loudspeakers
  • Dual Eiki 7,000-lumen projectors
  • Blackmagic switcher and video recorder
  • Marshall PTZ streaming camera

Result

The new sound and video system provides high-quality audio and video for both the main floor and balcony.  With social distancing requirements, this was critical as members are spread throughout the sanctuary.  The streaming system provides production-style remote viewing for members wherever they area.  The internal video system allows other areas of the Church to be used as overflow areas for viewing services.

St. Annes Episcopal Church Streaming and Digital Mixer System

System Requirements

St. Annes Episcopal Church, located in Abington, PA, needed the ability to stream their services in a simple and professional way..  They wanted a PTZ camera to capture various shots of the sanctuary as well a the rear of the Church.  The system also had to stream audio and video to several TVs throughout the Church used for overflow.


System Design

Our design team lead with the PTZOptics camera due to our extensive experience with them, as well as the performance and features of the cameras.  We used a 30X zoom camera, which allows for a closer zoom to the front.  Our installation team ran a wired internet connection from the Church’s router to the streaming laptop as well as an audio line out from the mixer so we had a clean audio feed from the sound system.  The system also includes an ambient sound pickup microphone so we can pick up the organ, choir and people singing. 

Equipment list:

  • One (1) PTZOptics pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) camera installed in the back of the Church
  • QSC TouchMix8 digital mixer
  • Shure boundary microphone
  • Petit HDMI RF modulator coaxial modulator system

Result

The new streaming system is easily operated from an iPad or laptop and allows the congregation to remotely watch services.   With the direct audio feed from the sound system, there is clear sound from all of the microphones.  The added ambient sound microphone picks up the organ, choir, and people in the pews for a full sound for people watching remotely.

Streaming Camera Hedding United Methodist Church

Hedding United Methodist Streaming System

System Requirements

Hedding United Methodist had a temporary streaming system to broadcast services and was looking for permanently mounted cameras with a controller and an audio feed from their sound system.  They wanted two cameras two capture various angles and have the ability to cut between shots.  The current setup was on a tripod in the front of the Church with cables all over the floor.  They wanted a permanent setup in the back of the Church, so the system can be easily controlled and was always ready to go.


System Design

Our design team lead with the PTZOptics cameras due to our extensive experience with them, as well as the performance and features of the cameras.  On the back wall, we used a 20X zoom camera, which allows for a closer zoom to the front.  On the side wall, we used a 12X zoom which has a wider lens and is ideal for closer shots.  Our installation team ran a wired internet connection from the Church’s router to the streaming laptop as well as an audio line out from the mixer so we had a clean audio feed from the sound system.

Equipment list:


Result

The new streaming system blends seamlessly with the Church and provides multiples angles of the entire sanctuary.  There are no more wires laying on the floor and the system can be easily operated from the back of the Church.  With the direct audio feed from the sound system, there is clear sound from all of the microphones.

St. John's Baptist Church Sound System

St. John’s Baptist Church Sound System

System Requirements

St. John’s Baptist Church in Ewing, NJ needed a new sound system that would enhance the coverage and quality of audio in the sanctuary.  Their existing system was comprised of two DJ loudspeakers mounted on the wall with an older analog mixing console.
