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.

'Art of Post' Art Show Features Creativity After Delivery
The creative folks in post-production often apply their artistic skills beyond their jobs. They sometimes even apply to it to art. This is every bit as true for technical and administrative people who don't have a specific outlet for their artistic impulses on the job. The folks at the bi-coastal visual effects and motion graphics company came up with a fantastic idea: let's put some of the work they've created in galleries. and call it "The Art of Post." Creative COW Associate Editor Kylee Peña responded strongly. "When I saw the Art of Post event featuring art created by post production professionals in Los Angeles and New York, I knew it wasn't just a new idea, it was necessary." Learn more about the remarkable event, enjoy the work of some remarkable artists, and perhaps think more broadly about what it means to be creative.
