Patton AVoIP Gateways Transform Real-Time Experience for City Church Congregation
FiberPlex 6000 series AVoIP Gateways provide a fully integrated onsite and live-streamed audio/video solution for visionary house of worship
GAITHERSBURG, MARYLAND: Patton—US manufacturer of Unified Communications, ALL-IP, and cloud communications products and services—leveraging its FiberPlex 6000 AVoIP gateway product line, has upgraded and future-proofed the house of worship (HoW) system at City Church.
The new audio/visual (AV) system improves the real-time experience for the entire congregation, whether onsite or remotely via streaming media.
"Our musicians, technicians, and the congregation have all noted that everything looks and sounds better," said Sarah Karlen, Arts and Communications Pastor at City Church. "People can receive the message without struggling to see or hear something."
Patton's Dante AV encoders and decoders bring all the A/V equipment and systems together into a unified platform that allows the team of staff and volunteers to focus on the art of the production, rather than the issues and limitations of traditional cable runs or devices.
The Dante platform is a complete AV-over-IP solution that allows audio, video, and control data to be transported over standard 1GB Ethernet networks.

The church uses Patton Dante AV encoders to connect all of its SDI cameras and sanctuary projection screens. The Dante Controller software routes and distributes video over the network to provide perfectly-synchronized video and audio.
Dante AV decoders connect multiple screens throughout the facility so they can deliver live sound, video, and graphics simultaneously to multiple areas throughout the church building.
"We're now able to efficiently share our message with more people in a higher quality way, and the Dante platform has made it possible," Karlen said.
By improving production quality, Dante technology makes the church more relevant to younger generations, Karlen added. Having a logical and easy-to-use system has been helpful for the church's many volunteers and students, too.
