Imagine walking into a place of worship with a weak audio system. Picture this – the sound coming through the speakers is accompanied by a humming noise and the microphones are cutting in and out. Would you be able to focus on the service? Would you even be able to understand the words spoken by the clergy?
Having a quality audio-visual system is a critical technical component to churches and houses of worship. Sound and video systems can improve the congregation’s experience and engagement, allow for a more effective means of communication and provide the opportunity for members to hear the service in its entirety – even for those who are not physically present.
Communication is key in all religious institutions. It is vital for the congregation to not only hear words spoken by the clergy but to also understand the messages that are being conveyed. Having a professional sound system can allow for the congregation to become more engaged and focused, while also helping the service run smoothly for the congregation and the choir.
From the live singers to sermons being preached, to the videos that are projected – it is imperative that the soundboard controls are working correctly so that the service runs seamlessly.
Creating custom settings and sound presets for church services can save your clergy and choir members so much time and eliminate frustrations of getting the audio to the right settings. Creating custom settings on a digital mixer will allow you to set and store different A/V scenarios and with a touch of a button, all your settings come back to where you need them. As if that isn’t simple enough, the new digital consoles, otherwise known as control surfaces, can be controlled via an iPad, Droid or other tablets (including smartphones).
At CSAV Systems, we can design and install induction loop systems, which are the more popular form of an assistive hearing system. The hearing loop allows individuals to hear the messages throughout the service loud and clear. With the amplifier, microphone and a thin loop wire – induction loops systems eliminate hearing barriers for members who have assistive hearing devices.
We get it… sometimes life happens, and members of your church can’t physically attend service. Having live streaming set-up at your church can allow members to feel as though they are truly present. Live streaming can help keep all members of your religious institution feel connected and part of the church community. It can even increase the engagement of your current or new members.
For churches with overflow rooms, streaming the live service and offering a two-way microphone system is an effective solution for communicating messages in multiple settings. In doing this, members of the congregation feel fully present in the service, even though they are physically in another location of the building.
