AV Support: Investing in New Technology for Houses of Worship

Audio Visual Integrator · Craig Heiman · Apr 13, 23

House of Worship

The pandemic saw a dramatic increase in the adoption of audiovisual technology. The new adoption has occurred across many markets, including corporate, retail, higher education, and even houses of worship.

While many churches have been transitioning over recent years to incorporate new audiovisual technology to provide an enhanced experience for their existing congregation and reach a wider audience, the pandemic accelerated the adoption of new technologies. This has provided an unprecedented opportunity for houses of worship to improve technology and broaden their capabilities with av support services. 

Discover below how impactful it can be in your house of worship to invest in new technology from your local AV engineers

AV Support and The Value of New Technology for Houses of Worship

It’s important to think about the future. It is more than likely that for the foreseeable future, worship services and large gatherings will be a hybrid combination of in-person and remote participants. It is imperative to be able to support both audiences seamlessly. Creating a unified experience means ensuring video quality, sound quality and streaming technology are up-to-date and effective. When it comes to getting AV support, now is the time to upgrade technology to ensure remote viewers comfortably view worship services. 

There are many added benefits to offering online streaming options for worship services. Current members who are out of town or unable to physically attend can tune in, providing an opportunity to gain new members. Geographical boundaries are not an obstacle for people living further away from the house of worship. Potential new members can better understand each house of worship without even having to enter the building. This is perfect for people who may be new to an area and are trying to decide which house of worship is right for them. Member retention will likely improve with high-quality streaming options. 

Online streaming also allows houses of worship to overcome the capacity limitations of a physical worship space. For typically larger services, especially during holidays, streaming technology can broadcast the service to physical overflow rooms inside the house of worship, or people can watch from their own homes. No limit exists to who or how many people can participate in services. Remote worship services can still have all the components of a regular worship service. For example, remote viewers can donate online rather than being there to donate when the hat is passed around physically.

Making sure you have quality audio equipment in place is paramount. While the in-person audio can be flawless, it might not sound as crisp a virtual audio. Recreating the experience for those tuning in on their mobile devices or televisions is important. Viewers won’t watch a service they can’t clearly hear or see. Investing in high-quality audio broadcasting technology can increase remote viewers’ experience ever further to give people at home the same experience as in-person. Upgrading technology also creates a better experience for in-person worship. Higher-quality audio can help carry sound to people in the back of the house of worship and make it clearer to understand sermons and music.
