Crowds of up to 35,000 have traditionally gathered weekly in houses of worship (HOW) for religious services across the U.S., but with the emergence of a global pandemic, this practice came to an abrupt halt. Lockdowns across the country sent religious institutions scrambling to find new ways of connecting with congregants, and many found their answer in live streaming. Even though in-person services have partially resumed, some congregants remain reluctant to attend large-scale gatherings, while others now prefer the convenience of online services. To this end, live streaming in the HOW market is proving a trend with staying power. As a result of the pandemic, Atlanta, GA-based AV consulting and design firm STRATA has seen HOW demand for production systems with streaming capabilities skyrocket. Having designed custom video systems for religious institutions across Phoenix, Houston, Nashville, Atlanta, Jacksonville, and other regions for more than three years, the Strata team, whose cumulative industry experience exceeds 90 years, is more than well-equipped to handle the upswing in business.
