Here’s a recent equipment Q & A that our Worship Pastor, Jason Hatley answered for a member of the CLI family:
Q: Our church is looking to do a satellite campus next year very similar to what you’ve done at The Journey.
We’re really pumped about going multi-site and expanding our ministry in that manner. In prepping for this transition, our tech guys had a couple of questions. Any insight you can give us regarding these questions would be great, thanks:
1. Projector Type? Screen Size?
2. DVD player model? Cable type to Projector?
1. Camera Type? Model #?
2. Signal Type? HD or SD? Digital or Analog?
3. Service Editing – Post-production or live switching
– Switcher (if live)? Editing Suite (if post)?
A: Sounds like things are really growing at your church. Honestly, I don’t know all the answers, but here’s what I do know:
1 – Projector’s are Eiki LCX-9 I believe (6500 lumens). Screens are 7.5×10 right now. We may go widescreen in the future.
2 – Play it through ProPresenter using Macbook Pro, adapter, and through BNC cable.
3 – Camera type – Panasonic HPX-300 high-def camera
4 – Signal type coming out of the laptop is a pure digital signal, but get downgraded to SD by the time it gets to the projector.
5 – We switch live. It’s an in-expensive switcher (not HD ready), so we’re considering replacing in the next year. I don’t know the model, but its a Panasonic I believe and cost about $5000-$7000. We edit using Final Cut Pro during the week, and then playback via ProPresenter in the locations.
I hope all of that helps!
