One of our top clients, Blythfield Hills Baptist Church, recently underwent a moderate audio visual upgrade to the sanctuary of their Northview campus. The facility requested to use Allen & Heath products, with which they are familiar and use at their many other facilities. So Oncore AV was able to match them to a GLD2-112 console that would meet their needs. This particular model was ideal for Northview because they needed more faders on their surface. This particular model has an extra bank of 8 control strips, increasing the channel count to 28 fader strips in 4 layers.

We also provided a Mini Multi Out Option Card, specifically from Allen & Heath, that allowed the new Allen & Heath equipment to interface with their existing deployment of a Behringer in-ear monitor system. This helped to save the client money while still providing high quality functionality.

One of Oncore AV’s core beliefs is to help organizations and small businesses be seen and heard. Most recently, we had the opportunity to work with the local Blythefield Hills Baptist Church on their latest expansion to the new Ensley campus in Sand Lake. For this renovation, Oncore AV was challenged to design and install an entirely new A/V system that would work with the budget of the project as well as meet the needs of the church.
At Ensley, Oncore AV used JBL products like the CBT 1000line array speaker, a great choice for a place of worship, as they offer tapered horizontal wave-guide which delivers superior coverage in both the front and rear corners of a room and to provide consistent front-to-back sound levels and clarity. The speakers also blend in with the space’s decor aesthetic. The sleek design and low profile allowed the speakers to virtually “disappear” into the design of the back wall of the sanctuary.
The sleek design of the CBT 1000 speakers camouflages them against the background design of the sanctuary. Can you see them hanging just beneath the first row of lights?
Oncore AV strives to match each client with the ideal set of equipment that will compliment their space, function in accordance to their needs and work within their budget.

America’s Summer Place is full of excitement this time of year and Oncore AV is gearing up for a busy season of live event production. Several of those events take place annually at the Grand Hotel, one of Oncore AV’s most outstanding customers. The Grand Hotel, plays host to dozens of conferences, seminars and other events each year. Located on Michigan’s Mackinac Island, it is a beautiful place to spend a summer vacation as a guest, but it can also present as a bit of a logistical challenge in terms of transportation and equipment delivery for a live event.
Oncore AV’s first goal is to make sure that we pack light enough to fit all of our equipment, supplies and personnel onto the ferry from the lower peninsula to the island itself. Secondly, we need to coordinate transport from the mainland to the island through one of the ferry’s from Shepler’s Ferry Line which depart every thirty minutes. Once on the island, everything is transported by horse drawn dray as there are no motor vehicles permitted. So, we must ensure that everything we bring along can be fit onto the dray and be light enough to be pulled by the horses. Secondly, we pack all of our equipment in airtight and waterproof cases to protect from the elements. Because of our long relationship with the Grand Hotel, and as a general desire to provide excellent service, Oncore AV is willing to go the extra mile (or 240 miles) to satisfy our customers, regardless of the challenge.
No matter the challenge, Oncore AV is up to the task of ensuring that your live event is successful. To see if your event could benefit from Oncore AV’s expertise, contact us directly at 616-259-9193 or on the web!

Oncore AV has been supporting the Whitecaps AV and production needs for several years. Last year, we outfitted the event control booth with a new Carbonite Black Switcher. This year, we have added content creation to the services we provide to this outstanding client. In fact, you can see our graphic skills in action at all of the West Michigan Whitecaps home games this summer!
We work very closely with each of our clients, like the Whitecaps Creative Team, to make sure that the products, events, or graphics we are producing reflect their needs and their brand exactly. We strive to knock every project out of the park!
Be sure to check out some Whitecaps baseball this summer and see our work in person at Fifth Third Field. Their 2018 season opens on April 5th! You can find a schedule of the rest of their season here.
