Church reaches out with AV

AUTHOR: Inavate

Aurora Multimedia today announced that Radiant Church in Colorado Springs, is using the company's WACI NX+ control system, WACI-PAD control panel, and IBZ-1041W wireless touch panel in its newly renovated facility. Installed by Cincinnati-based Worship Resources, a church audiovisual specialist, Aurora's control solutions are providing video switching between multiple projectors, cameras, monitors, and feeds for digital signage.

"Like many houses of worship, Radiant Church wanted to embrace technology to better engage its members in the church community and to help spread its message," said Tom Rutledge, owner of Worship Resources. "Radiant Church has more than 1,000 members, and a key way to reach them is through multimedia. To achieve this, the church's recent renovation included an updated A/V system and digital signage displays located throughout the facility."

Previously, Radiant Church was using one projector at the front of its worship centre and one at the rear, with digital switching performed manually. For the renovation, Worship Resources added two more projectors and monitors at the front of the worship centre, and replaced the projector in the back. Digital signage displays were added in the lobby and in the church's Mission Café coffee shop. For automated control of the video switching functions between the multiple projectors, cameras, and remote matrix feeds for the digital signage displays, Worship Resources utilised Aurora's WACI NX+ control system, WACI-PAD control panel, and IBZ-1041W wireless touch panel.

Aurora's WACI NX+ non-proprietary IP control system is accessed through any Web browser running on a wired or wireless Ethernet network. Numerous RS232/422/485, IR, relay, and DSP control ports are available, and a robust IR learner is standard.
