Tod Bush Leadership Center Improves Live, Online Presentations with Brightline Presenter Lighting Kit

Brightline, a leading manufacturer of video lighting systems, today announced the Tod Bush Leadership Center in Addison, Texas, has installed a Presenter Lighting Kit in its main training room to help deliver better presentations for live and online audiences.

The TBLC offers faith-based training, retreat hosting, and affordable office space for churches and nonprofits. In early January, the center hosted an online seminary class focused on the mental health of full-time ministers. While the event was well received, Brian Summerall, director of the TBLC, was not happy with the “dull” presenter lighting.

“Lighting makes all the difference,” he said. “We have studio lights, but they’re obtrusive. We needed to find a solution – and Brightline was the solution.”

In late February, the Presenter Lighting Kit was installed in the main training room, which holds up to 35 people and is equipped with two PTZ cameras for live streaming. “We love the new lights,” said Summerall. “They are compact, easy to install, and they look great, especially with the back lighting.”

According to Summerall, the Presenter Lighting Kit delivers focused lighting that does not overwhelm the instructor or distract from the aesthetics of the room. “No one knows they’re there. They blend into the room until you turn them on,” he added. “The instructor is not going to notice, but the people online are going to see a big difference.”

“The Tod Bush Leadership Center installation is a perfect example of how the Presenter Lighting Kit can help speakers in live and remote settings,” explained Kathy Katz, Brightline managing partner. “Videoconferencing and streaming content will continue to be important for business and educational applications. Teachers, company executives, and others need good lighting that’s focused on them, where it belongs, without washing out presentations on nearby screens.”

Introduced last year, the Presenter Lighting Kit uses PoE (Power over Ethernet) and wireless control to deliver simple, affordable lighting for single presenters. It is designed around a familiar three-point lighting design, and uses Flex-T recessed lighting LED panels for drop ceilings or drywall. The PoE control unit allows for IP control for reduced installation costs, while its COR-TAP Wi-Fi hotspot allows access to system configuration through any web browser.

Alpha Sound Selects DPA for Famed Cathedral AV Overhaul Posted: 21/04/2021
Alpha Sound Selects DPA for Famed Cathedral AV Overhaul

St. Mary’s Cathedral is one of the most popular and beautiful Catholic churches in the Portland area. It serves as its parish’s diocese, hosting weekly masses, services and sometimes daily visits for a large, devoted congregation. The church needed to ensure its audio-visual equipment could convey its important messages in a smooth, intelligible manner—something that was previously lacking due its domed cathedral and marble walls. When it came time for an AV upgrade, St. Mary’s turned to Alpha Sound, a leading AV installer in the Pacific Northwest. With 40 years’ experience, the Alpha Sound team was ready to tackle the live acoustical issues at the cathedral while also choosing equipment that would not impede the church’s elegant décor. To accomplish this, the installer selected more than 20 mics from DPA Microphones, the largest DPA install to-date in the area.

Mo-Sys takes virtual production to a truer focus Posted: 20/04/2021
Mo-Sys takes virtual production to a truer focus

Mo-Sys Engineering, world leader in precision camera tracking solutions for virtual production, has solved a major creative limitation when using an LED volume for virtual production. Cinematographers who needed to pull focus between real foreground objects – such as actors – and virtual objects displayed on an LED wall – such as a car - have been unable to do this as the lens focal plane stops at the LED wall, meaning the car always remains out of focus.
