As one of the largest churches in the United States, Willow Creek Community Church places a very high value on the power of video to connect with its congregation within the church and beyond its campuses.

SmallHD, a supplier of camera-mounted displays and monitors, has introduced its first reference grade monitor, which features 10-bit color processing to accurately display over a billion colors.
