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.

FOH Engineer Tomas Wolfe Chooses Roland M-5000 OHRCA Live Mixing Console for The Neighbourhood and Other Artists
FOH Engineer Tomas Wolfe Chooses Roland M-5000 OHRCA Live Mixing Console for The Neighbourhood and Other ArtistsThe M-5000 has become the go-to front-of-house console for Wolfe working with The Neighbourhood, BØRNS, Belly, Everlast and other artists thanks to its high degree of flexibility that lets him adjust its workflow to his needs and not the other way around, and for great Roland sound
L.A. native Tomas Wolfe worked his way up from the bottom in live audio: he began with stints at the quintessential Sunset Boulevard music venues the Viper Room and the Roxy Theatre. Two years on the L.A. club circuit led to touring, which he discovered he had even more affinity for. That led to road gigs with a series of artists including BØRNS, Belly, Everlast, the Mowgli’s and most recently The Neighbourhood, on U.S. and European tour legs. It was during this time that Wolfe first encountered the Roland M-5000 OHRCA Live Mixing Console. It was love at first sight — and sound. “I had read a bit about the M-5000, so I went to the Roland offices in L.A. and checked it out, and ended up doing a couple of shows with it in L.A. I found that I really liked the sound and the flexibility of the workflow.”
