Vive Church (formally C3 Church Silicon Valley) continues to grow in the heart of the USA's technology epicentre now with 4 campuses.
Forefront recently assisted Vive with further upgrades, including lighting and additional audio consoles.
Vive's largest and original campus is located in Palo Alto, CA - and is in a facility where they bump in and out every Sunday. From there they routinely stream out to the other campuses and Facebook Live.
Being a rented facility, the lighting setup, in particular the main front wash lacked the focus and brightness required, so Forefront installed a dedicated front wash and back lighting setup with Arri fresnels that supply an even coverage that looks great for live and broadcast, and minimises the amount of light onto the cyclorama which Vive use to project video from floor to ceiling.
In addition, the latest Chauvet Maverick series MK2 Spot moving head and MK2 Wash LED moving head wash fixtures were added to enable great atmospheric looks.
On the audio side of things, Vive has had a Digico SD9 for a couple of years now at Palo Alto and keeping on the Digico platform which is user friendly and familiar to their volunteers, rolled out Digico S21's to their other campuses in San Jose & San Francisco with the newest Oakland campus to officially launch in August.
An additional Digico S21 was also added to the Palo Alto campuses to facilitate a dedicated audio mix for live streaming. This takes a duplicate of all the inputs running to the Digico SD9 on FOH & monitors, and makes use of the gain tracking function to maintain independent gain structure, unaffected by any changes on the other console.
