We were very excited when we walked into a job and saw the Lambda Audio Guides printed off and sitting on the desk. If you haven't already checked out the great resources on our website, now's the time! These guides will change the way you train your volunteers and are a solid resource for reminding yourself of the essentials too! Check out lambdaav.io/resources for Audio AND Video guides!!!
With the unexpected rise and spread of Covid19, it quickly created new problems for everyone. The Navigators ministry was faced with the task of taking their numerous in person conferences and converting them all into virtual online conferences.
Lambda AV designed a compact streaming system that would allow them to have a multi-camera live stream of all the keynote speakers. It also had the ability to run a full graphics system while being set up virtually anywhere.
...And that being a good thing
As we continue to provide AV support and solutions in these changing times, wanted to give you a quick update on the tech industry.
Due to the repercussions of the shutdown and the high volume of video orders during Covid, there is a national shortage of product. Though production is picking up again, most video product is now several weeks backordered. If you have any questions on if or when a product may be available, don’t hesitate to ask Lambda!! We would love to find a solution for you and help you continue to navigate through Covid.

The Summit Church upgrade covered Audio, Video, Lighting and general stage design. It was a big project for Lambda, so after the initial design and approval to move forward by the church, Lambda decided to approach the install in stages. We were able to add the equipment in a logical order over the course of two months. We did this for several reasons.
It took a lot of planning and time to build and integrate the updates to Summit, but everyone involved couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out!
The benefits of adding a broadcast room
Lighting was the last major piece Lambda designed and installed for Summit Church earlier this year. It made an incredible visual difference and impact to their main room. It was so much fun to see this design come to life and how incredible it looked.
For a more in-depth case study, we asked Brad Helzer, our main systems schematics designer, to write a little about what building the lighting system for Summit looked like:
The Black Magic Pocket 4k and 6k camera are some of our favorite pieces of gear that we use and install. This is evident by how often you see us talk and post about them. They are extremely versatile, and their price point makes them very accessible to a broad range of budgets.
One of the hurdles that occurs though when using the pocket 4k and 6k in live productions, is the lack of ability to control the camera settings from a remote camera control panel. This is something that, while not necessary for everyone, is crucial in making sure your camera colors match throughout the duration of your live production.
The Middle Things APC (ATEM Pocket Control) Solves this problem. The Middle Things APC allows you to control your BMPCC 4k and 6k over SDI with your ATEM switcher and camera control panel. This integration allows you to keep your workflow the same across the BMPCC 4k/6k and the Ursa Mini cameras. The APC gives you control over the Shutter, Iris, WB, Gain, Some Primary color correction and Zoom. The APC does this by converting the SDI Program out (that has the control data) from your switcher to Bluetooth control. This Bluetooth control signal is then sent to the connected BMPCC.
The APC further adds to the versatility of the Blackmagic pocket cinema camera 4k/6k and opens up possibilities for it to be even more creativity implemented in live productions.
