Jun 15, 2011 12:58 PM
As worship media becomes more complex and professional, personal monitoring becomes a key step in the learning curve and perhaps the single most important way to upgrade the quality of the worship experience both for listeners and presenters . This webcast from Sound & Video Contractor looks at how to set up a variety of monitoring solutions for musicians, choir, and pastor, including floor-wedges, in-ear monitors and wireless belt packs, as well as how to integrate both wired and wireless support equipment including transmitters, antenna, limiters, digital snakes in ways that are effective but simple to use for non-professionals. We’ll also dig into the pros and cons of local mixes vs personal mixing systems, as well as best practices such as line checks, belt pack placement, cable and battery management, transmitter practices, redundancy and frequency/spectrum selection and analysis.
