LED Technology Upgrade for Church Campus Creates Intimate Worship Experiences
Diversified was engaged by Christ Fellowship in the first portion of what will be a multi-phase technology upgrade to their main broadcast campus in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. The initial scope included an LED video canvas for the church stage, as well as stage lighting upgrades, associated video processing/scaling/media servers, and new monitor and broadcast audio consoles for the main auditorium.
Diversified assisted the church in evaluating several different LED wall manufacturer options, ultimately settling on 314 ROE Diamond series 2.6mm LED panels to create a giant canvas on stage over 8,400 pixels wide by 1,500 pixels tall – 72 horizontal feet of screen surface! Brompton Tessera SX40 processors provide scaling and image processing for the screen, along with a Green Hippo media server and Barco E2 canvas management provided by Diversified. The church carried out the installation of the screen themselves with remote support from the technology solutions provider and the result is truly stunning.
Stage lighting improvements are anchored by Robe BMFL Spot fixtures that Diversified helped the church source directly from another client who wanted to move in a different creative direction for their stage, as well as GLP Impression X4 20 Bar’s, Martin MAC Quantum washes, Chauvet Rogue R2 washes, Elation CuePix Blinder WW2’s, and Chauvet Ovation F-915VW fresnel fixtures. Combined with an existing inventory of Chauvet EPIX LED strips and various Colorado LED par cans, the result is a cohesive lighting design with multiple layers that allows the church to create intimate, detailed looks as well as big and epic room-filling experiences based on whatever moment is being created on stage.
Christ Fellowship has standardized on Avid S6L consoles for their larger worship spaces such as the Gardens Campus. Diversified supplied new S6L systems for both monitors and broadcast, which proved extremely valuable as the global pandemic caused the church to quickly pivot from in-person to strictly online gatherings for several months in 2020.
Whether responsible for turnkey end-to-end project integration or working alongside a talented staff team and simply filling in their gaps to ensure they achieve their goals, Diversified is at its best helping churches like Christ Fellowship fulfill their unique mission in their community.
