To effectively integrate technology across multiple campuses, a crucial strategy is to prioritize the use of consistent brands. This approach simplifies the process of providing cross-campus training, enabling the church to train both staff and volunteers collectively in one central location. This flexibility also empowers the church to deploy leaders to various service locations as needed.
While financial constraints might limit uniform technology adoption, WAVE collaborated with Forest Hill to optimize resource allocation and align equipment wherever feasible. For a recent lighting upgrade, WAVE conducted training sessions for Forest Hill's production leaders that focused on the newly installed grandMA3 consoles, which were deployed across all six locations.
We designed various acoustical settings on each campus so each sound source can benefit from specific acoustic environments. Vocalist experience lush reverberation, while preaching can be in a controlled environment to enhance speech intelligibility.

"We've worked with WAVE on countless projects on our campuses, and the result is always the same: an incredible sounding room that looks great. What separates WAVE from the rest is their ability to provide a great sound no matter the circumstances. The relationship we've built with them is what brings us back again and again."
