However, if you’ve been updating our site already, you still may find this Admin Login short cut useful.  Have a look at this short video.

Pro Presenter

Posted by on 5:32 pm in Graphics | 0 comments


Pro Presenter is the presentation tool we use for all our campuses and within each of our departments.  From Statik to GoKids at Rock Island, Bettendorf, QC West and Vida Nueva.

Pro presenter was developed by Renewed Vision.  By far the post powerful and easy to use presentation software for houses of worship. Pro Presenter can be used in either a Mac or PC environment, however, we have chosen to use an all Mac platform as our presentation OS tool of choice.

Below you will find the Pro Presenter 5 manual for those that enjoy reading tech manuals.  Enjoy:

We also know that many, enjoy simply watching a good tutorial online, with a mocha frapuchino at your side.  Well, lucky you.  The folks over at Renewed Vision of put together a few Basic & Advanced tutorials for your enjoyment.  Have a look at all “THE BASICS” first.  Then, click away at “WORKING WITH SLIDES”,”BEYOND SLIDES” and finally, yes you’ve reached it….. “ADVANCED TOPICS”  Wow, your fancy now huh…..

Please look over the basics as long as you think you need to get a good conceptual knowledge of them (till you kinda get it), then you’ll bring those new brain cells over to one of our presentation booths and train away (goof off till you get caught).  I didn’t till you nothing.

Now…. there exists those few, who like to travel in packs.  Commute in packs.  Even hunt in packs.  Those that hit the Red Robins with a stealthiness that only  velociraptors can equal them.  To those, we have an on hands, in class, full of the corniest most intellectual jokes ever from our Media Director (Adrian Campos),  on campus training.  Yeah baby, four times a year or once every quarter (which ever comes first)

We’ll post the next training and information below.  Next one is coming up, in late October 2013 (tentatively).

Camera Work

Heritage Church is one church – many locations, type of church.  We serve our other campuses through live simulcast.  For this reason, we’re always looking for great camera operators.  With this in mind, we’ve put together a small brief on camera operation.  Feel free to click on the link below, download for later viewing or view the online PDF at your leisure.

UPDATE – we have recently updated our control room to incorporate our Panasonic remote cameras in our worship center.  This said, the gear component of our camera work guide is not quite up to date.  If you are roving, you will find that the gear portion does in fact pertain to you.  However, if you’re manning any of our other cameras, it does not.  We will have an update to these controllers in the next few weeks

While browsing through pinterest, I found this interesting cropping guide, that though designed for portrait photography, would be great for a cropping guide for our video work. Here’s the complete article.
