“As soon as we started projecting song lyrics during mass, I noticed a big difference in the response of the assembly,” said Frances Santa Maria-Afuang, Chairperson of the Audio Visual Systems Committee. “Based on the volume of the crowd, we began seeing great participation—so much so, that you could actually hear the assembly participating. The people are now much louder in responding, which makes for a better mass experience all around.”
Going forward, the new projection system will also help St. Augustine Catholic Church expand its presentations to include new communications media, such as high-def video.
“Although we haven’t utilized the projectors’ video capabilities too much yet, the fact that they offer state-of-the-art video/DVD capabilities will enable us to start using these projectors and oversized screens for special events like movie nights for fundraising,” said Santa Maria-Afuang.
The ViewSonic projectors offer another plus—operational simplicity. According to Santa Maria-Afuang, the projectors are easy to connect and simple to use—even for non-tech-savvy lay people like herself.
“Overall, our new projectors and screens are definitely helping St. Augustine Catholic Church reach our objective,” she said. “It’s proving to be a great solution.”
