Crossroads Church in Alberton redesign their stage look
2014/05/12

We were approached by Crossroads Church in Randhart Alberton, to design and oversee the visual upgrades to their new stage.  The stage size was increased substantially and as a result of which, the church required much larger projector screens than what they were using currently. 

The obvious solution for the system was Christie Digital, and with the help of Christie South Africa, we were able to offer the church an amazing price on two Christie LW555 WXGA units. Signal was processed by Kramer Electronics’ range of DGKAT transmission systems. All video and graphics was handled by Renewed Vision's ProPresenter 5. We installed three 50" LED panels on the back of the stage, which also made use of ProPresenter 5, to handle the media requirements. 

The lighting system provided needed to use as little power as possible, due to restrictions on site. We decided to use a selection of mixed white high power LED parcans, RGBW parcans and SMD5050 LED strips to create the halo around the screens.

Intelligent lighting was provided by the new ACM EXP-5R, which uses the new efficient 189 watt MSD 5R lamp. Needless to say the beams produced the by fixtures and super bright and cut through the auditorium to produce incredible beam and gobo effects. Lighting control is handled by an Avolites Titan Mobile system.

As a whole, the project turned out to be a complete success and the client was quite satisfied with the result. We look forward to the next phase of the system at Crossroads Church. The team of volunteers and staff are all very capable and were a pleasure to work with.
