ADVANCED BROADCAST SOLUTIONS INSTALLS HD VIDEO PRODUCTION FACILITIES AT HIGHLANDS COMMUNITY CHURCH

Initiative Enables New Video-Based Worship Center in Nearby City

SeaTac, WA, December 17, 2009 – Premier systems integration firm Advanced Broadcast Solutions (ABS) recently designed and installed a broadcast quality HD video production infrastructure at Highlands Community Church, a non-denominational Christian church in Renton, Wash. As part of its innovative ?Inside Out? project, Highlands added HD video production capability to better serve its rapidly growing congregation – and expand its reach to a second, video-based location in nearby Kent, Wash.

The church, with no space left to expand at its Renton location, considered buying or building a second facility, but found Seattle real estate prices cost prohibitive. “With our HD video strategy, we’re able to share a consistent, unified message with congregants at our two locations, while minimizing the cost of the second location,? said Gordon Strange, technical director for Highlands Community Church. “We record our Saturday evening worship service in Renton, then display that HD video at two Sunday morning services in Kent. With video as its foundation, our Kent location is actually an ad hoc worship center that we set up every Sunday morning in the auditorium of nearby Kent Ridge High School.?

The worship service in Renton includes the pastor’s sermon, announcements, and a variety of vocal and instrumental performances. The HD video shown at Kent focuses on sharing the sermon, which is supplemented with on-site musical performances and announcements.

At Highlands’ Renton campus, ABS installed a HD video production control room in the worship center’s balcony, built around a FOR-A HVS-300HS HD/SD switcher and Panasonic P2 HD record decks. Three Christie HD projectors and Da-Lite front projection 16:9 video screens are used for image magnification during the service, with footage from two robotic Panasonic HD PTZ cameras. Prior to its upgrade, the Renton facility showed only computer-based presentations on a single screen using a digital projector.

A major initiative, the “Inside Out? project included the systems design and integration work by ABS in Renton, as well as an upgraded lighting system at Renton and three 24-foot trailers of HD video gear to facilitate the Kent services. “I had hired ABS once before for a large-scale project I managed at another church. Since that was such a positive experience, I came back to them for this project,? said Strange. “They’re professional, dependable, and dedicated to quality work.?
