What We Bring to Your Project
Taipale Media Systems, Inc. is a full-service consulting firm specializing in acoustics and performance system design for churches. Started in 1981, we consult with churches throughout the US and abroad.
Is your goal simply to make sure that you are using the equipment you already have to its fullest potential? Or are you ready to upgrade your current technical systems? Maybe you're launching a new building project and you need somsone to partner with you on the technical systems that will support your ministry. Or maybe your crew just wants some training from someone who has lived (for years) right where they are. Whatever your goal, TMS is prepared to come alongside you and help you get there.
Our scope of involvement varies with each project, however most of our clients appreciate the benefits of allowing TMS to take the lead position in all of the following areas.
Allowing TMS to take the lead role for the design of all the technical systems allows us to head off any logistical conflicts before they become a problem. For example, if there is a positional conflict between where a loudspeaker needs to go versus where a production lighting fixture needs to go, we can work that out in-house well before the installing contractor starts to put things in the air.
No project is too large or too small for TMS. We are comfortable designing acoustics and production systems for churches of any size. The majority of the projects that God seems to be bringing us these days include main auditoriums that range in size from 200 seats up to 4000 seats. Some are traditional, most have very contemporary worship music styles. We are also seeing more and more churches leaning heavily on in-house video production.
Is yours a DIY church? Maybe your sound tech has the desire to design your new sound, video or theatrical lighting system himself. They know what they want, but don't have the design tools, software, or knowledge in certain key areas to deliver a proper design. If you prefer the do-it-yourself approach, please know that TMS is entirely comfortable in coming alongside your techs to help them through that design process. We can provide as much – or as little – design assistance as they need over the course of a project.
Getting the Most From What You Already Have!
We would be greatly blessed to work alongside your project team to raise the level of technical excellence in your existing church, or to help you on your next building project. We can help you achieve the level of technical excellence that you have envisioned without losing sight of your budget realities.
Here is just a small handful of our recent and current projects. We would be honored to provide you with contact information for any of them. Please feel free to ask. Understand that the project teams at these churches had the same initial questions about our capabilities that you probably have. You might even notice that many of these churches are a long way from our offices in north Texas, and yet they ultimately hired us despite the distance factor! They took a chance and discovered firsthand that choosing the right designer is far more important than the cost of a couple of plane tickets. Chances are that if we’ve done a good job for these folks, that we’ll do a good job for your church as well. God’s laws of physics don’t change, and neither does our heart to do the best job we know how to do on each project. Let us know if you have additional questions.
