The Crossing goes live


The Crossing, a multi-site church with four different venues in Missouri, streams its services to its website, Youtube and Facebook. Due to the amount of people watching online, Stan Yoder, systems engineer at The Crossing, decided to upgrade the cameras with products from Sony.

Yoder chose to replace the church's cameras as they were 10 years old and created challenges with low light sensitivity. ‘We were always struggling to balance the needs of the room to get the lights low enough to create the right atmosphere,’ said Yoder. ‘It still needed enough light so anyone outside of the room could tell what was going on.’

After working with Deron Yevoli from Summit Integrated Systems, Yoder decided to purchase six Sony HXC HD studio cameras. Five of these are manned and one is used as a handheld camera. ‘The low light performance and colour reproduction are two of the top reasons we selected these cameras, but we’ve really come to love the MSU and the flexibility and ease it gives us to better shade the cameras,’ explained Yoder. ‘We were also able to tie it into our system so that selecting a camera button on the MSU also brings that camera up on the shading monitor. It’s been a great setup for our operators, who are all volunteers and not professional broadcast folks.’

As its video wall displays needed replacing as well, The Crossing also purchased four Sony Bravia FW55-BZ35F 55-inch 4K HDR professional displays from Modern Communications. ‘They are amazingly bright,’ said Yoder. ‘The quality of colour reproduction, as well as the consistency of video between each monitor is so much better.’
