Memphis Church Enhances Worship Service with PixelFlex LED Visuals

PLSN Staff • Projection Connection News • August 21, 2013

MEMPHIS, TN — Bellevue Baptist Church provided imagery depicting the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ for thousands of worshippers here recently via PixelFlex LED curtains that adorned the church stage. Tony Morris, the church’s director of technical services, opted to utilize the panels for the performance backdrop.

More details from PixelFlex (www.LEDCurtain.com):

“The flexibility really provides many advantages over the hard, inflexible panels,” noted Morris. “Install and tear-down is extremely easy. Additionally, the rigging hardware on the top is simple to attach to the truss and the interconnection between the panels is all very straightforward.”

The production team cleared out the 75-by-130-foot stage, which usually has a 65 piece orchestra and a 200 voice choir, to have a clean slate for creating the atmosphere desired. The panels (20mm- 5 Panels) were used as a backdrop flown from a truss to enhance colors behind the singers, small band and pastor presenting during service that morning. The church’s stage has a trim height of about 45 ft. above the stage and the crew trimmed out the panels at 25 ft.

Videos and images can be sent to the screen using any computer with a DVI-D connection – PixelFlex LED Curtains are available from low resolution to high resolution, allowing users to demonstrate simple effects or elaborate videos. The high caliber visual components of the curtains come with equally impressive customer service assistance and without the need for an extensive budget.

Pleased with the overall ease of set-up and tear-down, as well as the accessibility of the product, Morris said they are looking at additional ways of using PixelFlex in the future.

“It’s amazing just how bright those things are,” said Morris. “We plan to try to incorporate the PixelFlex panels in more elaborate productions moving forward to maximize the worship experience for our congregation.”

Bellevue Baptist Church, founded in 1903 and based out of Memphis, Tenn., is led by Pastor Dr. Steve Gaines and provides in church services as well as podcasts and television services for its members.
