McKinney Church, Fort Worth Texas - Working in coordination with David McCauley of Bock Technologies, Dallas Tx; this 1200 seat sanctuary received a complete renovation of sound, acoustics, video and theatrical lighting during their recent remodeling project.
The sound system consists of 4 D&B line arrays, front fills and 6 double 18" sub-woofers, that deliver 35-18Khz, concert level sound.
A new 30’ LED video wall hung from a moveable winch system and 9 LED panels. The video system may be used for any video input including i-Mag from the newly acquired broadcast system designed by Bock Technologies. THE VIDEO SYSTEM CONSISTS OF A 30' WIDE LED WALL, 3 HUGE PROJECTORS FOR LIGHTING UP THE BACK STAGE AND SIDE WALLS WITH IMAGE BLENDING.
Theatrical lighting was enhanced by LED theatrical fixtures and moving heads. Media Design Group assisted the AV Contractor in design and engineering for the project. CONTACT US FOR YOUR NEXT PROJECT.
BROADCAST LIGHTING DESIGN for the City of Plano City Cuncil Chambers
MDG designed a new broadcast lighting system and room control system for the City of Plano. The original broadcast lighting was old and failing and was of the old incandescent style lighting, poor uneven coverage and the wrong color temperature for broadcast.
The new broadcast lighting system consisted of 360-degree coverage of the dais and front seating areas. Watch this sample video to see the greatly improved coverage, lack of shadowing and perfect color temperature of the video stream. We must note that the stream has been stripped down to 720p to save bandwidth.
MDG also designed a completely new room control system that allows remote control of the sound, video, broadcast lighting presets and much, much more. Note the touchscreens at the podium and 2 other locations to the left and right of the dais to allow council or presenter to have control over video presentations.
Whether your broadcasting video for production for national broadcast or for web streaming on Facebook, lighting for video is imperative to the success and quality of the video content. To make those systems seamless in operation, allow us to design the room controls so your users don’t need to be technical. Let us help you with that!

Note the even coverage, proper color temperature and lack of shadowing for every seat and podium.
