Many churches have had to transition toward online services and Lutheran Church of the Resurrection in Marion, Iowa had a decision to make. They decided to call Paradigm LED, LLC and partner with us for their live video streaming installation. The online services were going to continue and borrowing personal equipment from folks in the congregation was not a long term solution.
Paradigm worked closely with the team at LCR to determine their needs: Turnkey solution, professional quality, easy for volunteers to learn and use, and portable. Together we selected 2 cameras 1 PTZ and 1 Zoom, camera controller, video switcher, web presenter, streaming PC, and everything needed for the portable livestreaming suite. Their online videos look and sound great for the folks who need to attend services from home or remotely.
Paradigm LED, LLC, was approached by, Trinity United Methodist church in Huxley Iowa, about rebuilding their sound system. After several conversations, budgetary considerations, and plan modifications we settled on providing 1 center speaker and a rack mounted mixer. Due to the shape and size of the sanctuary Tectonic Audio Labs proved to be the perfect solution. We replaced the center cluster with 1 Tectonic Audio Labs DML 500. We specified an Allen & Heath Heath QU-PAC rack mount digital console due to its easy learning curve and space requirements. Their existing power conditioner, wireless receivers, and the console were mounted into a low profile rack case. Due to budgetary restrictions we repurposed the QSC RMX 1450 amplifier from the old system. As another cost saving measure we were able to reuse the speaker drive lines so we didn't need to run new cabling. The new setup looks smart, sounds great, and is easy to use.
Springs of Life Foursquare Church in Cedar Rapids has a new display in the Lobby!
Social distancing guidelines have necessitated holding some classes in the lobby. The 70" TV had been purchased to show song lyrics during early live stream services and was able to be repurposed as a lobby display. This new setup can show live video content from the main sanctuary, or teachers can plug an HDMI device into the wall plate to display classroom material locally.
