It’s exciting to see how these places of worship have evolved to become the centre of entertainment for the local community. Some of them even offer stage productions for schools or film nights for residents and congregation. With the rapid development of technology, we have observed that more and more places of worship are upgrading their outdated audio visual systems to keep up with the latest entertainment systems. It’s always a pleasure to help these places of worship enhance their audio visual capabilities.
There are always challenges when installing audio visual systems into churches as many have restrictions on where and how we can install display screens and projectors within the main body of the church. A majority of our installations have allowed us to install display screens on pillars that run the length of the church so we can install repeater screens for the congregation and large format screens at the front of the church.
Then the next issue is how do we install signal cables to these locations and distribute the signal to all the screens and projectors, using CAT6 cabling from a control point, under floors or around the church usually achieves this and then using CAT6 to HDMI converters, and in some cases we can use a wireless option where there is physically no way of installing signal cables to these positions.
In some instances churches have resorted to streaming their services, weddings and funerals so that people who are unable to attend can easily join in via zoom, youtube, facebook or another streaming platform so we have installed professional camera streaming systems to suit, with PTZ cameras, controllers and camera switchers so that the service can easily be streamed.
