Jeremy Carter works full time for Oakbrook Community Church as the Technical Director, overseeing the production areas of audio, video, lighting, graphics, the church website, and some IT responsibilities.
But occasionally, he is available to consult with other organizations on the design, install, testing, optimization and training of Audio, Video, and Lighting components (commonly called A/V/L Consulting.) In addition to his 18 years experience on the staff of Oakbrook, he has had training at the Meyer headquarters in Berkley, CA from one of the finest minds in the industry, Bob McCarthy. (You can check out Jeremy’s complete resume here.)
Jeremy utilizes this advanced training in system design, including the MAPP prediction software and “transfer-function” FFT software to tune and optimize systems to work as they were designed in each room. This method is vastly superior to the commonly used “RTA” method of attempting to tune a system.
Jeremy does not sell any equipment, nor is he an authorized service center for any equipment you may purchase on his recommendation. He can help you select appropriate, reliable, and dependable vendors for any equipment needs you may have – and he encourages organizations to have relationships with local vendors they know and trust.
