Extron electronics invited me (as well as about 40 other consultants) here to attend this training to inform us of their newest product offerings as well as new trends and changes in the world of AV design and integration.Trying to absorb the information given today for 8 hours was akin to the proverbial "drinking

Dedication service modifications

On Friday, Paul was asked by the youth pastor of ORBC to help set up a temporary overflow system for this Sunday. They’re expecting possibly up to 400 people in attendance at the 10:30 AM service, and they wanted to be prepared to send people to the fellowship hall to watch the service on a closed-circuit system if necessary. The church purchased a 3500 lumen Dell DLP projector, so we set that

Final touches

Today we finalized all of our installation. We installed a shelf for three amplifiers in the nursing room of the infant nursery. We installed an extra duplex outlet up on the wall where the amps could plug in. We also placed one of our two Network Sound wall plates here. The audio runs from the DSP in the sound booth to a wall plate in the sound booth. From there, the Network Sound plate converts

Closed circuit video and HD recording setup

Last October, ORBC began recording all of their Sunday AM and PM services as well as any special events that they had. Paul was asked to recommend what equipment to purchase. They needed something that could be operated with minimum personnel and lowest intrusion. The first purpose was to record all of the services to DVD. The main reason for this was for distribution to church members who couldn’t

Opening service report

Tim and I were able to attend the opening service at Oak Ridge Baptist this morning. Things went smoothly enough for a first service. Everyone was trying to get used to the new facility and find out where all the rooms were that they needed. It was a good crowd with about 300 in attendance. The auditorium is designed to seat about that number. The service went smoothly with a few minor AV glitches.

A long day at church

The youth room required a ceiling-mounted projector, a pair of wall-mounted speakers, amplifier, volume control, and VGA and 1/8” audio input. The youth pastor already had a Benq projector that was sufficient for the job, so we mounted that with a Telehook pole mount. This versatile mount allows for multiple adjustments including tilt and roll. This allowed us to mount it on the cathedral

ORBC installation heats up

Things are happening very quickly around the property now. The landscape is nearing getting finishing touches. The auditorium furniture is all installed. The last of the trim work and painting is being done. The last of our speakers were installed this week, and we had some help from a retired electrician from the church with all of the soldering. We’ll now concentrate on finishing up the

ORBC AV installation continues

Over the last two weeks we made some minor modifications to our design and equipment list to reduce the number of power points the church would need. We originally incorporated some Extron compact amplifiers for each room’s speakers, but we reduced the number of amps in order to not need so many plugs throughout the building. We designed the placement of the amps strategically for easiest access

After coordinating with the construction project manager and electricians, we developed a cost-effective, innovative design that will cooperate with the system being installed
