In the midst of a pandemic that has kept it’s most vulnerable at home, Houses of Worship have come to rely on livestreaming services to maintain some sort of normalcy in these trying times. First Presbyterian Church of Oklahoma City made the call to Video Reality to help in a much needed upgrade of their existing camera system. Keeping things as crystal clear for the viewer was key.
The first of two Lumens cameras, a 30x zoom pan-tilt-zoom, was mounted directly under the balcony at the South entrance of the
sanctuary, opposite the alter. This allowed for a wide view of the entire sanctuary as well as clear and concise close up shots.
The second camera installed is a 20x zoom pan-tilt-zoom camera mounted on the wall above the walkway, close to the audio booth for a pleasing aesthetic. Cable management will be key for this camera as cables will have to run in surface mounted raceways to the East wall then down to the audio booth.
In the audio booth, a Lumens Compact Camera Controller and a Roland Pro A/V HD Video Switcher were installed for total control and smooth transitions. A NEC LED Display Monitor was also installed for camera feed previews as well as additional options.
