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.

   

Your wireless microphones will soon be illegal again!

Fantastic news, I know.

In 2010, the FCC sold off the 700MHz radio spectrum for use by telecommunications companies -- essentially for use by public safety and wireless broadband service for mobile phones and in rural areas. 

In that process, television stations and wireless microphone users were forced to move out of the range that is specifically the frequencies between 698 and 806 MHz.  The tech community had to replace tens of thousands of wireless microphones.

In 2017, that process is repeating itself for the 600Mhz range. This time, the frequencies between 614-698 MHz are affected. And sometime between now and July 2020, with few exceptions, any wireless microphone operating in this range will have to be retired.

2010 was difficult for many users having to replace wireless microphones. What makes the 2017-2020 “repacking” different and even more difficult is that as the television broadcasters are moved from the 600 MHz frequencies, most are being moved into the existing 400-500 MHz space where unlicensed wireless microphones are (and will continue to be) permitted to operate.

Despite remaining legal, in some markets, we have already discovered some cases where legal wireless microphones will not be able to find a safe operating frequency due to the increased density of broadcast traffic. Large churches in Indianapolis, look out!

The repacking of those television stations will come in Transition Phases 1-10 between September 2018 and July 2020.

Warranty Registration Reminder - don't ignore this warranty card.

Many times, I am tempted to not fill out the warranty card when I buy something new.  I get lots of email.  I get lots of mail.  And in most cases, by getting you to fill out a warranty card, companies are buying your contact info so that they can send you marketing information.  Even so, there is at least one company whose warranty cards you do not want to ignore. 

Music Group offers a three-year warranty on most of the brands they represent -- Behringer, Midas, Tannoy, TC Group and Turbosound (the ones we carry).  However, you are required to register the product within 90 days to secure the three-year warranty.  Customers who do not register the product receive a one-year warranty. And it is our underdstanding that there are no exceptions to receive three-year coverage, if you have a problem and have not registered.

Please know that registration of all Music Group products is critical to recieving the extended three-year warranty that you've already paid for as part of the product price.  If it comes to it, register the product, and then unsubscribe from any marketing emails that you don't want to receive.  At least that's what I'd do if I were you.
