Networking for AV

a systems intensive

Today’s AVL systems require robust and well-managed networks. In this intensive, we will take a closer look at some network switch basics and ways to troubleshoot issues. Whether you are thinking about or are already using Dante, NDI, QSys, and NVX, or have never heard of IGMP or PTP, this intensive is for you! We will look at some basic configurations, explore how traffic management and clocking work, and discuss some best practices for managing IP addresses.
INTENSIVE 2 - SWEETWATER

Managing Acoustics in Challenging Environments

AN AUDIO INTENSIVE

Good acoustics for worship are important for clear speech, musical performance, creating a sense of awe, and enhancing the overall worship experience for the congregation. They ensure that the spoken word is clear and easily understood and can help to create a rich, full sound that complements the musical style and creates a more engaging experience for the congregation. The challenge is that many tech teams are working with spaces that have poor acoustics, or spaces that were not originally designed for today’s musical format, making it difficult to control sound. In this session, we’ll explore ways to improve the acoustic environment and control sound in such spaces.

INTENSIVE 3 - MEYER SOUND

Critical Listening

AN audio intensive

Our ear / brain listening system is still the most powerful “sound analyzer” we have, and our listening skills improve when we are intentional about developing them. We’ll talk about how we perceive sound and some techniques for ear training, and listen to a variety of audio samples and discuss what makes them great mixes – or not. We’ll focus on listening deeply from both an artistic (musical) and technical perspective and present ways we can practice this as well as learn to recognize various mixing techniques and apply them practically in our live worship sound environments.

A Lighting Intensive

Let’s face it, lighting consoles & programming can be complex. That level of complexity can scare off a new volunteer before they even get a chance to run their first service. Through this class, Andrew will go in depth showing how Highlands sets up their grandMA3 consoles to be both volunteer friendly and incredibly flexible for a worship experience. He’ll teach you how to engage your volunteers and allow them to be at ease behind the desk so that they can have a positive service experience and want to come back and learn more week after week.

A Playbook For Building a Creative Team

A Leadership Intensive

The good news? There is a seat at the table for creative leaders. The bad news is, there’s a massive void in creatives who are stepping up in their leadership. This session is for every volunteer, do-it-yourself, 1 person team, dreamer, or creative staff member, who wants to build something bigger than themselves. This session will take some of the mystery and anxiety out of “leadership” and walk through practical steps you can take to grow and equip others on their team to do the same.
