First Impression: Arri Skypanel LED Soft Light

The Arri SkyPanel certainly got our attention when we saw the new introduced last year.

Get Great Gear! KRK Systems Rokit4 Self-powered Nearfield Monitors

KRK’s Rokit series is affordable enough for even the most modest of buyers, with the smallest speakers in the line costing less than $300 per pair. That “baby” of the line—the four-inch Rokit4—is the focus of this review.

Laudable Loudspeaker Selection

CPM picks the brains of three church production professionals from well-known churches around the country— and provides advice on moving beyond mere brand-blindness to well thought out decisions about choosing loudspeakers.

Catching Rays: A Moving Light Selection Guide

With an ever-growing feature set and falling prices, it’s a great time to add flexibility to your worship environment with moving lights. Find out what’s new in LED, hybrids, and compact moving head fixtures.

It was surprising to find features on this desk such as gain tracking, digital tube emulation, and touch-sensitive controls.

Review: Mackie Reach All-in-One PA System

Built into the side of the cabinet IS Mackie’s EarShot personal monitoring system—Separate speakers on each side allow independent or dual control monitoring.

Review: SONY PXW-X180 XDCAM XAVC HD422 Camcorder

The PXW-X180 is a workhorse device that growing video or tech ministries could depend on week in and week out for a number of years. In my book, that’s the definition of a solid investment.

BackTalk: Don’t Delegate the Spiritual

Am I regularly seeking God’s presence and supernatural provision, or am I content to rely on my own understanding and talent? As a tech team manager, it’s up to me to model an example of reverence and humility for my team.
