Christ Church Gladesville recently approached Open Box Technology to help them upgrade their Video system. We installed two things: a new HD system consisting of two new LCD screens allowing the preacher and singers to see song words from the stage; and, a Black Magic Designs 16×16 SDI matrix to allow easy distribution of video signals across the two new screens, the existing projection screen and the preview monitor. This system doesn’t just meet current needs but will also allow easy expansion in the future, allowing screens in more locations to be fed a range of signals.
Open Box Technology has been working with St Anne’s Ryde since 2013, supplying and installing new equipment for their audio visual system. Their AV system had been in use for about 10 years and was in need of updating. We supplied new EV ZXA1 foldback speakers, a few additional microphones as well as an Allen & Heath GLD80 console and stage box system.
The Allen & Heath digital console has allowed the reduction in outboard equipment required. Some of this equipment has been donated to other churches, and some reused in other areas of the St Anne’s facility. Further, the digital console has given more power to the operators, while allowing recall of the default settings. This ensures a basic standard of quality regardless of the operator.
Open Box Technology manages the Audio Visual and IT systems at St Barnabas Broadway. We are responsible for upgrades, servicing and maintenance, as well as general advice and assistance.
St Barnabas has a state of the art Public Address system. A D&B Audiotechnik speaker system and BSS London system processor take care of the reproduction responsibilities. A Roland M480 console, digital multicore and personal monitoring system takes care of the audio front end. The presentations are run through Pro Presenter 5 off a new Hewlett Packard PC.
For the past couple of years, Open Box Technology have been advising and supplying Audio Visual systems to Vine Church (Surry Hills) as it has grown from a small church plant into a vibrant inner city community. Vine Church faced the challenge of needing to set up in a school each week in a limited timeframe. We have helped advise and supply them as they build a quality portable Audio Visual system in affordable increments. The equipment Vine Church are using is a combination of equipment donated to the church as well as various items OBT has sold them. Buying equipment in stages and integrating with existing equipment has allowed Vine to manage budgets and the investment often required in purchasing AV equipment.
