Production Services – Paisley Abbey

As part of our ongoing support to Paisley Abbey, we were asked to provide Sound, Lighting and Video Livestreaming for the induction of Rev Elsbeth McKay. This involved a large amount of planning, as well as a full production team.

In order to provide full sound coverage to the abbey, 14 speakers were strategically installed, along with additional boundary and radio microphones for the service and the choir.

For lighting, we provided a full broadcast set of lighting to complement the livestream. Along with this, we provided a full uplighting kit for all parts of the abbey, fully controlled from our MQ40 digital lighting desk.

Our livestream component consisted of 3 cameras, with two remotely controlled PTZ functioning as primary cameras. With each camera fitted with a 30x optical zoom, these made shots easy to focus. We also provided a manual camera, for those tricky to operate shots.

To compliment the livestream, we provided a robust on-site network, providing wired and wireless access to our equipment and users of the abbey. With the system designed to failover, should the site internet connection drop. This provides an extra level of robustness to any livestream.
