Sun Valley Community Church
When Arizona-based Sun Valley Community Church made the jump from SD to HD production in its Gilbert campus three years ago, the house of worship began using FOR-A's HVS-300HS video switcher. Last fall, the church was faced with the decision of purchasing a new switcher for its nearby location in Tempe. Pleased with the ease of use and performance delivered by its FOR-A switcher, Sun Valley chose another FOR-A switcher to get the job done ? the HVS-100. The house of worship has been successfully using its HVS-100 portable video switcher since September 2013.
"Because we've been very happy with our HVS-300HS switcher, it was a simple choice to stay within the FOR-A family for our next switcher purchase," said Greg Gardner, Sun Valley's Video Technical Director. "We decided on the HVS-100 because of the new features that it offers, such as having the flexibility to assign one of the keys to any of the AUX channels, and the ability to reposition and resize the key as desired."
Sun Valley uses its new HVS-100 during services every weekend at its 1,300-seat location in Tempe. The church has been taking advantage of the ability to log in to the switcher via a Web browser on a laptop, smart phone, or iPad to control all aspects of the unit remotely.
"FOR-A's switchers provide great ease of use," explained Gardner. "The bottom line for me is that the reliability of the products and customer support from FOR-A has been phenomenal."
