We're back with our panel of pros to discuss the things that we do during the week to make the weekend smoother. So much of what we do comes down to planning and preparation. Take that seriously, and see what improves.
We're live from NAB! Our panel of experts brings us up to speed on some cool 4K video walls, the Blackmagic Studio Camera, Avid Everywhere, new switchers from Ross & Sony and much more.

It's drums, drums, drums! We talk with a drummer and FOH engineer on his process for getting the drums sounding great. Spoiler, it's not a magic plug-in!
We're all about effects today! Our panel talks about reverb, delay, convolution and impulse response—among other things. Get the duct tape ready, your head may explode!
We recap the Seeds conference (including the very cool opening Kabuki drop), and talk about how to succeed as a TD. If you're wondering what separates top pros from the rest of the pack, here's your chance to learn.
It's back to the mailbag! We tackle subjects such as how do you lead up, coming up with realistic budgets, mixing when all the inputs don't make it to the board, and over-spec'ing speakers. Plus two exciting new audio consoles In The News!
We talk with Phil Cooke about the difference between biblically inspired art and biblically based art. What should the Christian's response be to films like Noah, and how can we do a better job of utilizing technology and social media for advancing the Kingdom?
Satellite campuses are all the rage in the church now. Tonight, we talk about how to get video to those campuses, how to organize tech teams and more. Plus, In the News!
This week we debate whether 96KHz is better than 48KHz, talk about the new SSL Live console and discuss some rules of thumb for using EQ (many of which we break consistently).
Wireless mic's—the source of great utility or frustration. We talk about how to make them work better, and about the upcoming spectrum sell-off that will once again have us shifting frequencies.
Ever wondered how to get your broadcast mix to sound like the big Mega Church's? Today we talk with three guys who really know what they're doing. Even if you don't have lots of gear, your audio for video mix can still sound great.
This week, it's all about projection! We talk about lumen ratings (and why you can't trust them), digital vs. analog cabling, lenses, throw distances and more. And as a bonus, we cover the NAMM show just for fun.
This week we talk about visual silence, multi screen environments, visual worship and a host of other topics related to immersive worship environments. Plus, some great new products in the news!
And check out Luke's new book, The Wide Guide.
This week we go back to the mailbag! We tackle questions such as how to handle it as a volunteer when the worship leader is also over tech but spends all his time with the band; how to balance excellence in production with budget, capabilities and people; prioritizing people over production and how to handle drums in a small room.
This week it's all about system design and optimization, building projects and churches that build buildings with no thought to AVL whatsoever. It's about to get real!
It's the last show of the year! We take a look back at the biggest stories and products of 2013, and make some predictions about what's to come in the new year. Plus, a special call in from our producer, Katie. You won't believe from where!
Being that it's Christmas week, we solicited fun Christmas stories from our listening audience. And boy did we get some! We even throw in a dramatic reading of one! And somehow, we end up talking about LED lights at the end. Go figure.
How do you prepare for a building project? Not simply design, but making sure all the right things are in place for a project to succeed. And be sure to choose equipment your team can run. We're gearing up for building in 2014!
The best way to learn this trade is from someone who has already mastered it. This week we talk about mentoring; being a mentor and having a mentor. We all need to be building into the next generation of technical artists.
This week it's all about lighting! We recap LDI—or as our panel calls it, LEDI. Learn about the new LED-source moving head fixtures, LED houselights, LED video walls and a new console from High End. And you'll never guess who our sponsors are...
