For Immediate Release
Iroquois, ON, Canada â€“ March 28, 2011 â€“
Willow Creek Community Church prepares for their new campus launch in Huntley, IL with a Ross Video CrossOver 12 Solo compact production switcher.
Willow Creek chose the affordable Ross CrossOver Solo due to its ability to go HD in the future, as well as expandability for when their current campus moves locations or adds IMAG. Willow Creek goes on air with CrossOver Solo on April 3, 2011.
â€œWe chose CrossOver Solo for many reasons, but mainly because we have already had positive experiences with Ross Video,â€? said Matthew Wentz Regional Technical Director, Willow Creek Community Church. â€œOur main campus in South Barrington, IL already has a Ross Synergy and Vision, so cross training and troubleshooting will be much easier than trying to figure out a new interface.â€?
â€œAt Ross Video we appreciate customers like Willow Creek Community Church. Theyâ€™ve been a loyal Ross customer throughout the progression of our switcher lineup, and have also become RossGear, openGear and Ross Router customers,â€? said Dave Westermann, Regional Sales Manager â€“ Great Lakes Region, Ross Video. â€œThe Willow Creek staff has been great to work with, and has given us valuable product feedback over the years. We look forward to continuing our relationship for many more years ahead.â€?
