Purchasing the Right Broadcast Video Camera on a Budget

1 in 4 adults in the USA live with disabling hearing loss. At retirement age and above, that number is significantly higher (70-80%). Although hearing aids and cochlear implants do a great job in small group situations, they are almost useless in large spaces. Unable to distinguish between what the listener wants to hear, and every other noise in that space, the hearing aid amplifies everything, making for a very uncomfortable listening experience. For most people that wear hearing aids, this leads to them withdrawing from that environment and ultimately leads to isolation. In large public spaces, including places of worship, there are four types of assistive listening that have the potential to completely resolve this problem. In this session, we will explore the four solutions, discuss the pros and cons of each, and describe the ways that assistive listening not just improves the listening experience for the hearing aid wearer, but actively increases attendance for places of worship. 


Does Production Really Matter?

Does production really matter? Yes, it does! Oftentimes production is the last thing we put on the “to-do list”, however, last minute decisions cause impulsive buying that costs more in the long run. During this session keynote designed for both the Creative track (Digital Marketing/Social Media) as well as the Production Engineering & Technology track, we will discuss how technology can help your church grow and how to let technology serve both the congregation and the health of the team members using it.

The Qualities of Light used by a designer are Intensity, Color, and Movement. A lighting designer is responsible for Illumination, Mood, and Focus. In order to make the most of four out of six of these elements a designer needs to understand both the biology of the eye and the physics of color. Join us to learn how your eye works to see color and light. Then learn about how an understanding of the physics of color can enhance your designs.
