Church Gets Subtle Color Changes with Wybron Fixtures

PLSN Staff • News • February 13, 2009

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO —Wybron’s Nexera color-mixing luminaires have been used to enhance worship services at Woodmen Valley Chapel, a 6,000-member church, with 10 Nexeras, in both profile and wash models, painting the back of the church stage, including the fabric draped on either side of the main projection screen. “It brings life to the stage. It enhances the senses,” said Mark Shrimplin, Woodmen Valley’s director of technical arts.

The Nexera combines a light fixture and CMY dichroic color changer in one unit. Features including a compact size, quiet convection-cooled operation and smooth color changes have helped the unit become more common at churches and small theatres.

“These have been so much easier for our volunteers to be able to change the colors,” Shrimplin said, adding that the changes are subtle and appropriate for a church atmosphere. “If it’s a distraction, we don’t use it.”

The Nexeras also work well with the church’s television cameras, Shrimplin adds.
