Summit Video System Continued
was to have one long wall across the back of the stage, but due mainly to budgetary reasons, this was not possible. Summit wondered what an alternative plan could be, so during the design process our design team presented the idea to split the full wall in six columns. This still gives Summit the ability to create visuals for the lower half of the wall and gives them the starting place to easily expand in the future. When the church is ready, they now have the option of filling in the gaps between the existing columns to make a complete LED wall in future.
So, why did Summit go with LED wall over the more traditional route of projectors? One of the biggest advantages of LED walls over the traditional projectors is that LED wall offers more flexible options regarding the display size and shape. This creates the opportunity for a higher degree of creativity in the overall design of video graphics and presentation. Traditional projector setups also cannot complete with LED wall’s contrast ratio. Projectors usually display onto white projection screens and because of starting out with a white screen, getting the projectors to show an accurate black level is practically impossible. LED Walls on the other hand start off black and go up in in brightness, giving you a much darker black and a much brighter white. You can read more about this concept HERE.
Another reason LED wall was particularly a good choice for Summit was because of their lighting plans. Part of the upgrades for Summit, stay tuned for more, included adding a professional lighting system. With a larger and more complex lighting setup, projectors can easily become overpowered and washed out from the lighting or limit the number of lighting effects that could be used. LED wall can easily handle any lighting setup or even a room with lots of windows and you will never have to worrying about the light interfering.
As you have seen from the last several weeks, the video system install covered a lot of areas for Summit. From new cameras, displays and a broadcast room, this install really encompassed it all. As Lambda tries to highlight the biggest pieces, we hope to inspire you in your audio visual journey. If you’re tired of hearing about video, good news! Next week we’ll be back to talking about Audio.
