Roland M-5000 OHRCA Live Mixing Console Chosen for Rose Heights Church in Tyler, Texas
Church integrates M-5000 with existing Roland M-48 Personal Mixing system as part of massive upgrade to church’s existing A/V infrastructure focused on user-friendliness and interoperability, allowing extensive networking and streaming capabilities.
When Shane Weber of Web Feat Productions, a media consulting firm that specializes in serving churches and not-for-profit organizations, was brought in to spec solutions for a new FOH console at Rose Heights Church in Tyler, Texas, he focused on his normal priorities: “When I come in, I really want to make a functional system for people to walk up to. It’s going to do everything they want it to and more, and it’s going to be as simple as I can make it.” Once a church makes an A/V upgrade a priority, a consulting or installation firm sometimes specs solutions that are too engineering-based and difficult for Sunday volunteers to wrap their minds around, he notes, again emphasizing the elegant simplicity that complements the functionality of a well thought-out infrastructure. With these things in mind, to Weber the solution was obvious: the Roland M-5000 OHRCA Live Mixing Console.

A Beautiful Pigeon Steals the Show in Jet Blue's "Recurring Dream"
SOAR HIGH ABOVE THE CITY WITH A BLISSFUL BIRD IN JET BLUE’S NEW AD FROM MULLEN LOWE, SMUGGLER’S BRIAN BELETIC & MPC LA
In this Cinderella story, a pigeon dreams he is a graceful flyer joyously perusing the city from high above instead of from his usual lot on crowded sidewalks, dodging the feet of annoyed pedestrians. The beautiful star of Jet Blue’s “Recurring Dream” is a photo-real CG pigeon who reflects contentedly about the joys of flying in style, including perks like room to stretch out, having all amenities within reach and enjoying a welcoming environment. That story, very much an analogy for the perks of flying Jet Blue, was directed by Smuggler’s Brian Beletic who does fine work putting viewers shotgun for an aerial adventure, which even includes a flight pattern over a giant bird seed fountain. Working closely with Beletic and Jet Blue agency Mullen Lowe, MPC’s team created the happy flyer and crafted his seamless integration into the commercial’s clever story.
