In deciding to coordinate the five phases of installs without the use of an integrator, Hill explained that option grew out of work he’d previously done with the church.

Dating back a couple decades ago, Hill noted working on their sound system, to which he said, “A bit of trust was built there, after which he and Guess four years ago “worked on their youth facility, so we built further trust.”

When it came time to decide on doing this multiphase project, Guess said, “It showed the church that we could do the things that we wanted to do in-house, and that we could save the church on costs.”

Once the project was fully complete, Hill and Guess each discussed the high degree of positive feedback from members of the congregation, as well as the staff.

“I have heard from people who said they really love the change … once they realized that they were not going to be in a rock concert, and that it would enhance the service. We also have had comments from older members who have said that the lyrics are so much easier to read, or that the projectors are so much brighter,” said Hill. For Guess, “The reaction has been nothing but positive. When we were talking to the staff and some of the congregation, and the volunteers who were helping, there were some concerns about bringing in some new things … becoming more of a progressive church.”

Pertaining to the church’s use of environmental projection, Guess added, “Everyone is very pleased with it. We were concerned that it might possibly be distracting, but that has been nothing of the sort. It’s been an amazing reception from the congregation, from the oldest to the youngest; they have been incredibly pleased with that.

Over the last couple of months since the completion of the project, Hill noted that thanks in large part to working with Ware, no adjustments with the Hitachi projectors have been necessary, but that with the cameras and streaming systems, “We continue to tweak things on it weekly, as we learn.”

Those modifications, Hill, explained, “That can be from anywhere from adjusting white balance to eliminating hot spots.” One of the bigger changes, he noted in training the staff, is having them transition from using auto focus to manual focus predominantly. Guess added, “We are learning every service about those cameras … including being able to adjust the warmth of the picture or learning the better lighting angles. This will be an ongoing thing for our camera guys and for those who will learn them in the future.”
