FOR-A Video Switcher Key in Faith Assembly Church Construction

Faith Assembly Church in Florida now features the FOR-A HVS-350HS HD/SD 1.5 M/E Video Switcher in its video control room.
February 06, 2013 | by Jessica Camerato

After two-and-a-half years of construction, Faith Assembly Church in Florida has finished its first phase and opened its doors for services. Once inside the 300,000 square foot space, the church live streams services to reach multiple continents, as well as several events including baptisms, wedding ceremonies, and concerts.

The video control room features a FOR-A HVS-350HS HD/SD 1.5 M/E Video Switcher, key to Faith Assembly’s video production. Encore Broadcast Solutions provided systems integration services and was tasked with the design, sales, and installation of all audio, video and lighting systems in the complex.

“We put a lot of time and effort into determining the products that would best fit the church’s needs,” says Gadiel Marquez, Encore systems design engineer. “We chose FOR-A’s switcher because of the flexibility it offers. The HVS-350HS brings powerful production value and has the ability to easily accommodate all of Faith Assembly’s video production needs.”

The Faith Assembly main campus includes six main venues with full audio, video, and lighting capabilities. The complex is completely integrated with HD/SDI capability and a common intercom channel runs through the campus. Each building on the property has the same video package, simplifying the learning curve for the mix of paid employees and volunteer staff.

“We did this to allow our personnel to familiarize themselves with the technology in one control room, then walk into another venue and have the exact same setup to deal with,” says Robb Hawks, Faith Assembly Executive Pastor. “We’ve made video production easier in other ways, too. All of the equipment in our dining hall is on rolling racks, so that we can easily transport the gear to another room if needed. The ability to quickly move production equipment from one venue to the next is particularly handy as we move forward with our next phase of construction in different areas of the complex.”

The auditorium in the main sanctuary seats 2,700 and features a multi-screen configuration (including a 60-foot wide main center screen).

Solutions also utilized include: DPI Quad Projectors, Hitachi HD cameras, Angenieux lenses, and Turbo Sound speakers. A 9x16 LED jumbo screen video wall was also purchased from the Orlando Magic as digital signage in the church’s bookstore.

“So much time and effort was put into this project,” says Hawks. “We’re extremely pleased with the level of sophistication we’ve been able to achieve technically and within our budget.”
