The Bridge Bible Church Looks to the Future with the Roland V-1200HD Multi-Format Video Switcher
The Bridge Bible Church Looks to the Future with the Roland V-1200HD Multi-Format Video SwitcherThis decade-old church in Bakersfield, California, chose the Roland V-1200HD as the foundational component that will act as the video hub for a future expansion including a possible satellite location and the need to add cameras and I-MAG projection
The Bridge Bible Church in Bakersfield, California, has plans for its future. The 12-year-old house of worship, whose sanctuary today accommodates 1,200 worshippers at a time – a total of 25,000 weekly across three Sunday services, is considering adding a satellite location sometime in the next year or two, which will necessitate the acquisition and integration of video cameras and I-MAG projection, something they don’t need currently thanks to an architectural design whose curved balcony makes for a pleasantly intimate worship space. But when The Bridge Bible Church makes its expansion move, its media infrastructure will be ready, thanks to the purchase earlier this year of a Roland V-1200HD Multi-Format Video Switcher. The Roland V-1200HD was purchased through Pacific West Sound, also in Bakersfield.
