There’s one thing for certain in church technology. The electronic equipment that helps us share the Good News will need to be repaired, replaced, or upgraded at some point. While it is easy to set tech goals for some of the bigger projects, it is equally important to plan for smaller maintenance tasks.
There are a lot of technical details to consider when forming a new church plant. Designing and investing in the right sound system can be one of the most important tech decisions a young church makes.
Churches face a major shift in how to worship in 2020 and beyond. Live streaming has become the go-to solution for churches and parishioners who want to stay connected, engaged, and spiritually fed. Pastors and tech team volunteers recently had to scramble to use streaming infrastructure to reach their congregation at home. Now they're faced with the challenges of improving their production workflow.
Technology serves an important role in just about every church, especially when it comes to audio, video, and lighting (AVL) systems. The increasing complexity of these systems requires special expertise in installation, programming, and service that is best provided by a quality church AV contractor.
The main sound system controller at your church goes by many names: soundboard, audio desk, mixing console, mixer, etc. They all refer to the same thing. Selecting the right soundboard for your church might be the biggest audio decision you make. It’s hard to mix good sound without a good soundboard.
Portable church speaker systems have a lot of excellent uses for a ministry and worship team. Some churches are completely portable and need quality sound on the go. A church might need portable sound systems for the youth group or summer camp. And sometimes a small portable speaker is the perfect addition to fill in sound on a large stage or for use during a special event. Portable speaker systems can be configured many different ways. However, not all portable systems are created equal.
Video projectors serve a vital role in today’s worship services and message delivery. It's true that flat panel displays and LED video walls are found in a growing number of churches. But it is the tried and true video projector that gets the job done for churches of all sizes around the world.
Projectors are popular for a number of reasons. They are easy to install and simple to use. And, they are often the lowest cost option for large format, high-resolution video.
