Planetshakers makes a visual upgrade


Planetshakers Church, the Australian megachurch internationally famed for its touring worship band of the same name, has upgraded its visual production capabilities. The church wanted to incorporate stunning imagery and broadcast-quality production into its services, and turned to Grass Valley for solutions.

‘While we have over 17,000 weekly visitors to our church, we want to continue growing our congregation, making our church services and events accessible wherever people are,’ explained Chris Peterson, Planetshakers’ video manager. ‘It was imperative that our chosen camera technology provider could deliver unbeatable image quality and Grass Valley was the clear choice for us. As well as unmatched expertise in live production, Grass Valley solutions are easy to use for our volunteers and third parties and come with hallmarked reliability. Having local expertise and support on the ground was also a key factor.’

The new camera system not only delivers broadcast-quality HD visuals, but also offers a clear path to 4K UHD and HDR in the future. It is formed from Grass Valley’s LDX 86 cameras, chosen for their performance and sensitivity, as well as the GV-eLicense upgrade option which paves the aforementioned path to 4K UHD and HDR implementation.

‘As a contemporary church with a strong youth ministry programme, high-quality production is a crucial aspect of the Planetshakers Church experience,’ commented Ward Hansford, vice president of Oceania sales at Grass Valley. ‘The Grass Valley camera system helps the production team produce rich, high-quality content that engages the church congregation, whether in person or over a live stream, and connects them together. With an easy to deploy software upgrade option, the church can make the switch to 4K UHD and HDR as and when required.’
