What We’ve Done: openboxtechnolgy.com

Towards the middle of last year (2015) we at Open Box Technology started thinking about building our own website. As a company that builds websites for other people there was a lot riding on this project! We met to discuss our plans and identified ways our website needed to function.
Firstly, the website is a business tool, allowing people to learn about our work and contact us. Secondly, the website is effectively a demo site showcasing our web design and development work.Our website!

What We’ve Done: Growing Global Churches

Growing Global Churches (GGC) is a ministry helping grow the local churches involvement in global mission. They help pastors and churches who want to grow their involvement in God’s global mission by inspiring, facilitating, resourcing and mentoring them in order to develop a culture of mission within their church.

Open Box Technology (OBT) has been working with GGC to help them visually communicate in a way which is honest and appealing.

We started with a graphic mark that suggests movement like that of ripples spreading across a globe. This brings to mind the global spread of the gospel, a core part of what GGC is trying to achieve. The graphic mark incorporates the initials of the organisation while the complete logo also includes the words “Growing Global Churches”. Both the graphic alone and the complete logo have been implemented as a black version, a colour version and a white version.

What We’ve Done: Christ Church Gladesville

CCG Stained Glass Windows

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.

What We’ve Done: St Anne’s Ryde

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.
