1992 called and it wants its rack panel back!

Until just this year, we've been limited to offering engraved rack panels with basic logos, and text file type layouts.  If it looked good in Ariel and with a 2D logo, we could do it.

Is your projector draining your tech budget?

Time. Money. Focus. If your projector requires lamp replacement, maintenance or repairs, it is draining you of resources you could be using to engage your congregation. Worship Facilities Magazine estimates that the typical projector used in Houses of Worship costs as much as $7,000 in bulbs, maintenance and equipment failure over its lifespan.

With a dust-free, lamp-free design, new laser projectors from Panasonic offer 20,000 hours of virtually maintenance-free operation. Plus, they feature high brightness and contrast for optimal daylight viewing.

This line-up starts at just $3699 for 5000 lumens.  One of the largest theme park chains in the world uses exclusively Panasonic laser projectors and the nation's largest restaurant chain dedicated to chicken wings has chosen the PT-RZ570 series as its standard for its corporate stores.  See the full line-up here.  

Don't sweat lamp failure, air filter warning messages, lift/scaffolding rental, and time.  Give your congregation all of the attention it deserves, and give up projector maintenance for good.

   

Make your wireless systems perform more reliably.

With the increasing challenges posed by FCC TV channel reassignment, the 600 MHz cell phone service rollout, and the increase of LED stage lighting and LED walls, wireless mic and IEM users will need to squeeze out every last drop of system performance to ensure reliable, drop free performance. This article will try to explain how out-of-band interference can jeopardize the performance of your wireless systems and what you can do to minimize it.

What is out-of-band interference?

Basically it is every signal picked up by your antenna that is not the signal from your intended transmitter. In other words it is stray RF interference, be it electrical motor noise, hash from your lighting and projection systems, assisted-listening system, security radios, comms and your other wireless mics and IEMs.

LED Wall Interference

Very soon it will also include an audience with new 600 MHz cell phones in their pockets and maybe signals from Microsoft Whitespace devices. Antennas aren't smart and simply shove every signal they receive into the front end of your receiver which directly affects the noise floor which you are trying to overcome. The interference from a high noise floor is likely the single largest external factor affecting the range of your wireless mics.

For your receiver to understand a signal it must be strong enough to overcome the background noise floor.

It's too loud!

Virtually every small and medium-sized church with a band fights the same fight. I've heard it called "platform wars", "volume wars" and similar descriptions, but in most cases the facts are simple -- the stage volume (monitors, instrument amplifiers and acoustical volume of instruments like drums) is simply too loud.  And that additional volume forces the sound system in the main seating area to be even louder and/or worse sounding than it needs to be. 

At my own church, we still fight with this most weekends and we're making progress.  The first step we took was to get as many of our musicians as possible on earphones or headphones, and to eliminate stage monitor speakers.  That cost us less than $1000.  We have some additional steps to take, but let's stick with solving the in-ear monitoring equation for now.  

What we did was to buy a simple headphone amplifier.  Today, let's look at the HA4x4 from Elite Core.  It's $119.99 and can provide up to four users the choice of between 1 and 4 different headphone mixes. 

How do you create a separate mix for ear/headphones?  Most audio mixers have auxiliary mix busses and just like you'd send a feed to a monitor amplifier, you can do the same to a headphone amplifier.  In this case, you can send up to four different mixes so that each musician can hear exactly what he or she wants to hear and at the precise volume they'd like, all without bothering anyone else or adding to the volume level in the seating area. 

Elite Core also makes wired bodypacks with volume control.  The WBP-VC gives the wearer a secure place to plug in the earphone mini-plug and an XLR connector for the connection to the headphone amplifier with a beltclip. Try the Elite Core Prohex-Core-18 at $37.99 to get the cable and volume control you need. 

Combine all of that with a set of earphones from Shure like the SE-215 at $99.00 or ATH-M30x headphones from Audio Technica at $69.00.

Next time, we'll talk about making some or all of this wireless, but we wanted to give you an affordable entry point for reducing stage volume in your facility. 

Let us help design a custom solution to quiet your stage volume today!
