Church A/V Technology  - 
 
My wife preached this morning so I had the chance to try out recording video. I had this problem. Windows are covered with a curtain and ambient light is very limited. There were two lights , on the right is a CFL light and on the left is an LED CN160 light. I know lighting is not proper, I am still in the process of looking for the LED lights recommended in my previous post. The issue, there was a bright reflection that developed. Check pictures description for details. Camera used is a Canon Vixia HFR40. Camera is on Programmed AE setting, auto exposure and auto white balance. Camera is ~9feet away from the speaker, right in the middle (projector is also in the middle).

Church A/V Technology  - 
 
We are currently turning our living room to a "Church-like" hall. It's small and fits 20+ people (yeah, a bit packed - cause it is hard to find a good place that we can rent here in our area). Part of this is re-painting the walls. What is the best color for the walls and for the "stage"? We are going to try to eliminate ambient lights because we're going to be using a projector (BenQ MX662). I'm asking cause we will be recording video messages and some of the worship.

Thanks.

you guys are definitely 220v. there are quite a few devices  that auto switch depending on the voltage. basically built to work in both 110v regions as well as 220v regions.

When Theology and Technology Collide

As church technology volunteers and staff, we live in a fun world that is super gadget and software oriented where we play with social media, mess with sound levels, and find creative approaches to new announcement videos. But we also live in a world where Christian theology is our worldview. And while I believe that God is all knowing and all present, I personally have problems when we try to overspiritualize something that might not be true. Case in point, technology that is powerfully and fully impacting our life today.

My desktop computer won't turn on anymore (after cleaning it and installing Windows and other software).. So I am planning to build a new one. But I need some advice.

The one I built was an AMD A8 processor on FM1 motherboard. It was built two years ago and FM1 is already a "phased out" product. What platform (AMD or Intel) doesn't change too much? I want to build one that in two years, I can just upgrade the processor and need not replace the motherboard. Or there's not much I can do and after two years, the platform is already obsolete.

This computer is used for personal, Church and a lot of ministry work.

Thanks,

I think that gone are the days where you can plan on putting a new cpu in an old motherboard.  In general both companies will release 1 new cpu that incrementally upgrades performance over the first generation processor for any chipset.  But I don't generally find it necessary to upgrade.  
Now if you plan to get a system and put in an i5 now and upgrade to an i7 processor in 2 years that may be the best way you can upgrade performance in 2 years while spreading out the costs.  
I have a feeling that in 2 years if you look at the price/performance ratio you will find it more cost effective to upgrade both your cpu and motherboard, however.  
Good luck.  I do hope you find a solution.  
While they aren't ideal your current best bet may be intel LGA1155 Z77 chipset boards (granted they are 2 years old now).  You'll probably want to find one that has added PCI support as it's not native on that chipset.
You could also wait till the end of the year when both companies release new architecture.

Shot taken before service. It's our second Sunday using the projector (BenQ MX662 - donated, but bnew) which is bright even though the windows and curtains are open. I still need to remove the light receptacle/fixture in front of the pj that is partially blocking it. Screen is just our wall I painted with (~8 coats) flat white paint (projected screen is ~80"). Currently saving up for a real projection screen. #churchtechview

Story
Tagline
I am a son, brother, husband, father, friend, blogger (wannabe), IT enthusiast (wannabe), servant of Christ.
Introduction

I’m Marvin Cruz. I’m married with one son and we are living in San Jose del Monte City, Bulacan, Philippines.

Currently member of the iStudyEBS steering committee. iStudyEBS, a division of Explorer's Bible Study, seeks to use the internet and technology in providing an in-depth Bible study to all people all around the world.

I am also working on our computer services business (computer repairs, desktop publishing, web, etc). I took Computer Engineering but only finished the first two years (I thought Computer Engineering was all about fixing computers, but no, it’s all about math!). I also took Theology and was only able to finish 3 years (got married to my wife after she graduated Theology),

I am an Evangelical Christian (or Born-Again Christian as others commonly know it), and I won’t hide it.

I am also pursuing on using technology and internet as an avenue or instrument for the Lord’s ministry.
