Karl and Brad -
You guys have taken the words and thoughts right out of my head.

I started the install business after Hurricane Katrina wiped out my  Real Estate brokerage and 90% of my live gigs.  Nearly everything we did the first year was audio related, but in the past several months we've dipped into simple projector installs.

Optoma and Hitachi 1500-2500 lumens projectors and VGA cable runs of well under 130 feet.  Most of these small churches simply want to connect their PC laptop or tower to the projector using EasyWorship or MediaShout in order to display the Scripture or lyrics.

A few have wanted the ability to control the projectors from both the Pulpit and FOH.  One wanted to switch that control wirelessly durring the service.

So its been a very basic and simple existance up until now.
(yes, seems members of this church have extensively visited some Super Churches and now they want the same toys)

Their AV staff simply does not have the education or experience to run the system they are asking for.  
I have one side of the crew asking for 24-36 channel multi tracking ability and the others asking for this multi source, three output video system.
(personally I think their room is not set up for this - no one person in the sanctuary will be able to see all three screens at once)

Thanks for the moral and mental support you two - You've put into words what I've felt about this last minute addition to their system.

And if I forsee more video system installs like this one I will indeed be teaming up with a video specialist.
Thanks again
Rain

Now do remember before you blow them off to find out what the vision of the church is. Actually, you should always do that first. If the vision and heart of the leadership is to become heavily media oriented, the funds and willingness to learn will be there.

I would heavily recommend you partner with (or acquire) the personnel that are very video savy. Taking a look at the current "landscape" as it were, I would bet that we will be seeing _Much_ more high end video being deployed in churches in the coming months and year. There is good money in it for those that are capable of it.

Of course your area and local market will be a big impact here.

Good Points Karl!
Atlanta we aren't, but the Mississippi Gulf Coast is rebuilding (since Katrina wiped most of our churches out)

Nearly every House of Worship is at least upgrading due to the influx of donations and funds.  Many are completely rebuildling and a good number of those are increasing their sq. footage in big ways.

So yes, I can see the need for the higher end video systems too.
(I guess the ones who broadcast their services have really been the only ones to use this level of equipment up until now)

These systems are actually completely different than broadcast video. Broadcast video is a different discipline altogether with it's own rules and pitfalls.

What we are talking about here is production video.

When you have both at the same time is when we _really_ start talking dollars.
