Akron’s The Chapel upgrades to JVC Professional Video solution


As an audio, video, livestreaming and lighting solutions provider, Medianet AV installs and supplies production services and equipment to a variety of organisations – most commonly churches throughout Ohio and the surrounding areas. Medianet AV owner Zac Novak and his team often choose cameras from JVC Professional Video.

In the early days of lockdowns, houses of worship turned to any available equipment to provide livestreamed services to congregates, which included everything from existing, ageing gear to off-the-shelf solutions from big box stores. More recently, however, Novak has seen an increase in the number of venues willing to invest in more professional equipment to improve this aspect of their production.

“After the first year or so, these venues began to realise their livestreams weren’t great and decided to upgrade to something better,” explained Novak. “We have been really focused on helping our customers replace consumer-level hardware to something more professional. One of our most important jobs as church integrators is to not only address the current requirements of our clients, who often work with tight budgets, but also project how their needs might evolve in the coming years. When it comes to cameras, JVC is always at the top of our list of recommendations for our clients.”

Among the many houses of worship where Medianet AV has installed JVC cameras is The Chapel in Akron. The large church located on-campus at The University of Akron in Ohio had a video system consisting of 13-year-old cameras and a video switcher, all running on 720p. The goal was to get the church’s system running on 1080p, while staying within budget. After reviewing several manufacturers, the Medianet AV team decided JVC’s GY-HC900 cameras were the clear choice. Also installed behind the scenes were the JVC CONNECTED CAM Studio and accompanying JVC monitors.

“The JVC equipment not only provided the same quality as other leading manufacturers, but it did so at a much lower price point, which was beneficial to the church,” added Novak.
