Social Media WireLists25 300pxThe times we’re living in are requiring all of us to come up with new ways of doing things, particularly when it comes to group gatherings. If you are a pastor, a youth leader or one who handles the technology for your worship center, this extends to the holding of services and study groups. How can you lead your congregation remotely, particularly if you haven’t done it before? Facebook Live, YouTube and even your own website can offer you a way to reach out – we’ll leave the choice of platform up to you. In this list, we’ll discuss the five considerations for creating a remote worship experience, regardless of platform.


Social Media WireLists24 300pxYou’ve undoubtedly run into situations where you need to get your transmitter antenna away from the talent’s body, or where you could use a few more feet of reach for your receiver. We make & sell these coax antennas as the ACOAXTX and there is also a BNC version available as well – the ACOAXBNC.

That said, if you’re handy and have done a little bit of work with wiring, you can make your own! In today’s list, we’ll explain how to make a coaxial dipole antenna, using a few readily available tools and a pre-made cable.

6 Things You Will Need:


Social Media WireLists23 300pxThe M2R was designed originally as a personal listening receiver, often called an “IEM pack” (in-ear monitors) and thus, we used a very high-quality headphone amp for the design. The downside is there is no protection from 48V phantom power when the M2R is used as a camera hop receiver and is connected to professional microphone inputs. We have seen several M2Rs (and occasionally other receivers) come into repair with damage from this issue. This List will discuss what phantom power is, why it’s important, and how you should work with it to get the best results and avoid damaging your equipment.


Social Media WireLists22 300px The next time you're watching the news or a live narrative-type program - pay attention to the person speaking. You might notice their lavaliere mic, but more importantly, how it is placed. Chances are, it has a loop in it, with the mic head pointing up or down. Called a "Broadcast Loop" or "Newsman's Loop," this technique and mic head placement is effective for specific scenarios and, when hiding the mic isn't the main priority, can fix some common audio problems.

Why Would We Use A Loop?


Social Media WireLists21 300Videography is one discipline where sound and visuals converge, and while it is not exactly new, wedding videography remains one of the most profitable projects that videographers undertake. And the demands for it are more stringent than ever before. No longer are wedding videos a simple chronological record of the day – they have become dynamic films featuring cinematographic camera work and even soundtracks. One of the newest trends is to show a “trailer” containing moments from the ceremony during the reception, which means that the footage needs to be edited an hour or two after filming and most likely onsite! With all of this going on, someone (that would be you) has to be mindful of the most important reason why everyone is there on the day: to witness the vows. The videographer has to figure out the best way to obtain a clean audio track while at the same time being unobtrusive and inclusive of more than one camera set-up. Many videographers plant mics throughout the venue or have the partners speak into wireless mics, but this isn’t always practical, feasible, esthetically pleasing to watch and in cases where the wedding is in a church with strict requirements, might not even be allowed.
