Australian Church Works LED Video Wall
Adelaide, Australia’s Edge Church recently added a new installation of Pixapanel S10 LED video panels to the stage of its South campus, for a fresh, changing, and flexible worship background.
It's a story you might be familiar with, a large 48-foot by 9-foot panoramic projection screen on stage is a significant investment—and can provide a great canvas for a variety of media—but does represent a challenge over time in providing creative flexibility to give the stage a fresh look.Stage Presence
Taking an approach to enhance its stage presentation and creative ability, Edge Church recently installed 38 units of Pixapanel S10.
The units are scattered across the stage, driven by a Pandora's Box (Coolux) media server that allows both the lighting operator and video switcher to have dual control.
At any time during the service, the panoramic screen and the S10 panels can be mapped to provide one huge single image across the stage.
Pixapanel also installed static independent HD cameras to allow the church’s lighting operator to grab interesting shots around the stage and instruments, then manipulate the images via Coolux’s live video effects—all without the need to coordinate with the video team.
The HD cameras are also fed to an image magnification (IMAG) switcher to give the video director an additional four camera shots to work with.
