Technology Systems for Churches – Stage Monitor Systems
Stage monitor systems used by performers and technicians come in many forms; for audio monitoring they may be portable wedge shaped speakers on the floor directly in front of the performers, permanently installed loudspeakers, headphones, or in-ear devices so as to produce no ambient sound level. For video, the monitoring system may be flat screens or projections placed in locations specifically for viewing of the presenters such as a video prompters. Monitors may also convey data, graphical information, audience response or signals that are for the use of the presenters or system operators. Regardless of the type of information, monitors that are designed to convey sound, video, or data should be dedicated entirely separate and independent from the systems used to address the audience. The control system for stage monitors are generally much more elaborate than front of house controls or projection placed but they provide audio video or other information about the systems. Audio monitors including in-ear monitors bring sound from another system source, like your pastor’s microphone, directly to the ear of the listener to help overcome background noise and poor building acoustics.
Technology Systems for Churches – In-Ear Monitor
In-ear monitors and wireless In-ear monitors are becoming more and more popular in sound systems for worship and for very good reason. Advances in technology have made current In-Ear Monitor (IEM) systems now more affordable than ever while still delivering all the benefits of better, safer audio monitoring that have made In-Ear Monitor the preferred personal monitoring system for professionals in virtually all musical, stage, and broadcast applications. Even though In-Ear Monitoring systems offer extraordinary benefits, implementing them isn’t straight forward and they don’t necessarily offer a safer listening environment without some careful preparation and operation. If your church production team is thinking about transitioning from traditional floor or side fill monitor speakers to In-Ear Monitoring, we suggest you read the rest of this article and call Torrence to consult with an audio system professional today.
