When Greater Grace Church in Ferguson, Missouri moved into their new facility, they required a new, state-of-the-art audio visual system. Audiovisual technology wasn’t enough, they needed both flexibility and ease-of-use and for this reason, they chose to work with PSNI affiliate Conference Technologies for design and installation.
Building an Optimal Experience
Greater Grace Church required new projectors, audio systems and a NLE edit station.
Because audio is one of the most important elements within an audiovisual install, Conference Technologies chose to build Greater Grace Church’s sound system around a 32-channel Yamaha M7CL digital desk and a Biamp digital signal processor. This offered optimal flexibility and ease of use within the production area.
Also integrated was a video production system around five Panasonic pan/tilt/zoom cameras. The camera signals and controls were routed to a production area behind the stage. Church technicians could mix the images with hymn lyrics and other materials from the graphics workstation on a Grass Vally Indigo mixer. These images are then routed to dual 4500 NEC projectors while recording the service in DV digital format. Users also have the option to mix to NEC LCD monitors in the lobby and other areas of the church.
Conference Technologies, Inc.® also installed an AVID Express system so that Greater Grace technicians could edit video from the services or other church events, sending the final program material to Charter Cable, as well as burning DVDs.
With these new AV systems, Greater Grace Church now has the tools it needs to deliver a seamless service for attendees.
