Challenge

Houses of worship range from small, storefront spaces to much larger venues accommodating a wide range of crowds and activities.  As you would expect, the complexity and needs of the AV system grow commensurately.

From the main sanctuary or auditorium to the lobby and internet viewers, routing the proper audio and video from a wide range of cameras, digital signage players, and more needs to be easy, seamless, and reliable.

Live events such as these place even more pressure on the AV system to be able to help distribute the message being conveyed to the congregation.

Solution

Atlona’s Opus™ products are the perfect solution for any House of Worship. Comprised of HDBaseT matrix switchers of varying capacity, they provide an unmatched flexibility at a competitive price.

Integrating well with other audio and video equipment, the Opus products permit greater distances over standard CAT6 cables versus standard video wiring. Provisions for audio, video and control enable the flexibility to handle all types of usage from prayer services to meetings – even digital signage needs.

The Opus series family of products are designed to simplify your House of Worship needs.

Challenge

Divisible rooms require flexibility to accommodate AV applications based on whether the room is divided or open (combined). The AV system solution needs to be easily configured for a single AV presentation, or two simultaneous but independent presentation sessions, with a simple means of switching back and forth between divided and open-room AV modes of operation.

The AV system design also needs to provide connectivity for presenter devices in each divided room. Additional AV functions may include content sharing to overflow rooms and video conferencing.

Solution

Networked AV provides the most flexible and straightforward approach to system design for a divisible room. A standard off-the-shelf, 24-port Gigabit Ethernet switch serves as the heart of the system. Simple network connections to endpoint locations handle presenter and source device connections, the displays, a DSP, amplifiers for sound reinforcement, and cameras for video conferencing.

AV over IP system designs are very easily adaptable to large, multi-divisible rooms in convention centers. This is accomplished simply by increasing network switching capacity and specifying the appropriate quantity and type of endpoint devices.
