Willingdon Church, located in Burnaby, British Columbia, is using the Audience software platform from Markham, Ontario-based Capital Networks to power the digital signage network recently installed in the lobby of the multi-venue place of worship.
Willingdon enjoys a strong connection to the local community, where over 4,000 members attend weekend services which are simultaneously translated into 10 languages, reflecting the cultural diversity of the city of Burnaby. The church hosts a variety of musicals, weekly sermons, worship services and concerts in a pair of halls including the 1,300 seat Sanctuary venue.
The first phase of the digital signage installation includes eleven flat panel displays located in various locations throughout the lobby of the church. Messaging for the initial phase includes a variety of welcome messages to members and visitors, as well as the promotion of upcoming events at the facility.
The Audience software platform is responsible for the creation and management of content on the network, including the automation of daily room schedules. Local Authorized Audience Reseller, MVCC, located in Burnaby, provided the Audience software platform, while also providing installation services and ongoing network support to Willingdon Church.
Future plans for the installation include live streaming video footage from the main auditorium, menu board signage in the church cafe and incorporating the digital signage network into the Willlingdon Church emergency messaging system.
