US church install for Vaddio24 November 2008
The projection and hallway system are designed to display high-definition video content, primarily drawn from four cameras and two computers in the sanctuary. Three 16:9 aspect projection screens are positioned on stage, while hallway monitors are at hand to enhance the overall experience.
The WallVIEW CCU H700 system is built around the Sony BRC-H700 high-definition pan/tilt/zoom camera, with three CCD megapixel sensors and a 12X optical zoom lens. Vaddio’s Quick-Connect CCU enables the user to make rapid adjustments to the colour, gain and iris functions of the H700. In addition, the Quick-Connect CCU’s cabling system allows the integrator to use standard Cat5 cabling to run both HD and SD video, camera power, black burst sync and camera control up to 500ft.
Vaddio president Rob Sheeley told II: “Due to the importance of image magnification in this application a true broadcast-quality camera was needed. The WallVIEW CCU H700 was such a great choice in this instance because you would need more than just the auto iris and white balance settings in the camera to control the variance of lighting in the church. In addition, they also have the options of controlling red and blue colour gain, colour hue and image detail. The CCU systems would provide all the image control they required.”
