When it comes to organizing and producing live, broadcast, or streamed services, a reliable intercom system is crucial to maintain clear communication among all personnel involved. Whether the HoW is small or large, serving one facility or multiple buildings or campuses, the goal remains the same—to ensure services and events are broadcast to viewers in the best way possible. To achieve this, it is up to the crew behind-the-scenes, often volunteers with little-to-no experience, to keep in constant communication, especially when unexpected circumstances arise.
Finding the right intercom system to suit your needs now and in the future is an important decision. It is also valuable to find a system that fits your budget now yet can be scaled for possible future needs as your congregation grows. From simple out-of-the-box configurations to large-scale designs, Pliant Technologies designs and manufactures systems are dependable, durable and easy to use.
