House of Worship - Choir Monitors

Posted by Bill Francis | Mar 2, 2021

Churches are many things to many people. To us they are important places for groups to congregate and it has been tough for them to do so during the pandemic. So creativity has kicked in. Many do a prerecorded service every Sunday and leave it at that. Others hold church outdoors in the warmer weather. But most are interested in live-streaming their services.

As we do more of these types of installs, we're finding choir (video) “confidence” monitors to be just as important as the "front-of-house" screens the congregation watches. This sometimes can be tricky when it comes to site lines. No matter who is installing your system, it's important to make sure the front of house TV screens don't block the view of the choir monitor from the choir. And by the same token make sure the choir monitor is large enough to maintain "read-ability". A choir monitor can be -

  • Simply a big TV on the wall behind the congregation
  • A big TV hanging from a ceiling beam
  • A short-throw projector and large screen (or a white wall)
  • Small monitor(s) near the front of the sanctuary aimed at the choir

Basically, whatever is needed so the choir (and pastor) can see the content on the screen. of late, pastors have been asking for a separate monitor just displaying the live camera of them speaking.
