USA - Led by Pastor Jeff Crook, Christ Place Church in Flowery Branch, Georgia, has been serving the community since 1955 by providing a safe place for everyone to come together in worship. The church recently finished construction on their new sanctuary, designed to use the latest in technology to reach a growing congregation.
Requiring a theatrical lighting design that could create the ideal worship environment and front light for their high-definition video capabilities, the church worked with the AVL integration specialists PRODUCTION/co who designed a new lighting system using PHX 250W LED profile luminaires from Altman Lighting.
“We’ve worked with the church on everything from student camps to smaller jobs, so when they began with the construction of their new sanctuary, we were brought on board to oversee the complete audio, video and lighting integration,” comments Dustin Whitt, PRODUCTION/co. “We had seen the PHX LED in a fixture demo and were impressed with both its output and quality of light across the beam field, plus it has an attractive price-point as well.”
“We had reviewed a lot of the competing products, and while we found that some weren’t really reliable enough, we also didn’t like the white’s created by others,” adds Cason Cleveland, PRODUCTION/co. “When we saw the PHX LED profile luminaires, they gave us the ideal output, consistency and performance.”
“The stage itself measures between 42ft and 56ft from upstage to downstage, and is approximately 90-feet wide,” continues Whitt. “There are then three catwalks in the front of house with throw distances between 60 - 80ft, so we used 50 PHX 250W LED profile 5600K ellipsoidals with an assortment of lenses ranging from 10-19 degrees.”
"The visibility and lighting dynamics of the stage are light years ahead of what we had before,” concludes Robert Boley, technical director, Christ Place Church. “Having an even, front wash helps our camera volunteers to only worry about getting the correct shots, and not about having to refocus or change iris. In the end, our camera shots look cleaner, and the light provided by the PHX LED profile luminaires adds a much-needed depth to the entire stage.”
