Christ Church Relies On Pliant Technologies Intercoms

News Image
A multi-site church with campuses in West Monroe, Ruston, and Sterlington, Christ Church has grown to become a leading house of worship in Louisiana. With roughly 2,000 congregants in attendance weekly at its main location in West Monroe, Christ Church takes pride in its ability to produce quality services to its mass audience, as well as to its online community that tunes in remotely. Christ Church, West Monroe, deploys Pliant Technologies' CrewCom Wireless Intercom System for seamless communication amongst its media and production team.

The West Monroe location has a full production setup, including eight cameras, and a separate in-house and online mix. For intercoms, the team utilises a CrewCom Control Unit (CU), as well as four of the brand’s CrewCom Radio Transceivers (RTs) placed throughout the facility: one in the video booth located at the top of the sanctuary, one placed behind the stage, another placed near front of house, which is located mid-sanctuary, and the last located in the front lobby in order to reach the parking lot for their outdoor events. The team has a total of 15 Pliant CrewCom Radio Packs (RPs) consisting of ten two-channel and five four-channel packs, and 15 Pliant single and dual-ear SmartBoom PRO headsets.

"With this setup, we have complete coverage of the entire campus. It's very versatile and we can go pretty much wherever we want with the comms units," said Craig Roberson, Media and Production Director at Christ Church, West Monroe. "With the ability to have multiple Radio Packs per Radio Transceiver at a time, our personnel are always in range, even if they are out in the parking lot for an event."
