AUTOSCRIPT HELPS IN TOUCH MINISTRIES CLEARLY CONVEY MESSAGING FOR BROADCASTS SEEN AROUND THE WORLD

ATLANTA, AUGUST 1, 2011—Behind the scenes of In Touch Ministries’ weekly television program In Touch With Dr. Charles Stanley, production has become much more comfortable and efficient thanks to the addition of teleprompters from Autoscript, the world’s leading teleprompting company and a Vitec Group brand. An easy-to-use solution for users and engineers alike, Autoscript LED 19 +TFT+ (LED19TFT) teleprompters have enabled In Touch to clearly convey important messaging despite bright lights, distance and other common challenges faced on a sound stage.

The goal of In Touch Ministries, the non-profit ministry founded by Dr. Charles Stanley, senior pastor of First Baptist Atlanta, is to lead people worldwide into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and strengthen the local church. While Dr. Stanley’s outreach began as a local broadcast in Atlanta, today the weekly television and radio broadcasts of In Touch With Dr. Charles Stanley can be seen and heard domestically more

WEBSTER, NEW YORK – AUGUST 2011: Namesake of famous statesman and orator Daniel Webster, the tranquil town of Webster, New York is the fastest growing suburb of nearby Rochester. The town lives up to its motto, “where life is worth living,” in part by supporting a top-tier school system. Recently, a voter-supported capital project to revitalize the aging components of the school system’s infrastructure provided the means to update the A/V systems in three area schools. Both high schools (Thomas and Schroeder) and one middle school (Spry) benefitted from state-of-the-art installations that center on Ashly Audio processors and amps. And because Ashly Audio is based in Webster, the new installations will directly benefit its employees’ children!

Led by principal Seth Waltz and audio designer Geoff Nichols, local firm AVL Designs designed all three systems. Local integrator Platinum Sound and Communications performed the installations. “The previous systems in these schools more
