LA HABRA, Calif. – With its two multisite locations, Eastside Christian Church recently moved to install a new LED video wall at their lone multisite location in Orange County, in the city in the northwest corner of the county.
For a church that began modestly in a living room in Fullerton, Eastside has grown to more than 6,000 congregants across its three campuses over an average week, to where back in November 2012, it moved their main location to its current spot in Anaheim. That location had previously been a Boeing-owned property, but over the span of 15 months, that site was converted to include a worship center, fellowship hall, along with classrooms.
While the church went with an Absen 40-foot LED wall at their Anaheim location over the last four years, with the individual panels consisting of a 6.25mm pixel pitch, Eastside opted for an upgrade at their La Habra location to a new custom front-serviceable ROE Visual wall consisting of panels at just a 3.9mm pixel pitch, covering a span of a 20-foot wide wall.
“I can show over 720p resolution, at 20 feet wide,” noted Eastside’s Chief Technology & Production Systems Director Chris Gille. By having LED walls installed at both locations, he added, “It almost feels like an Orange County quality standard.” And when describing the ROE Visual wall itself, he said, “There are solid colors, to where it looks painted … it is a beautiful wall. It is a key component to the video message and to the presentation.”
Originally, ROE Visual had installed the LED wall at La Habra in late September, to where it was first used for a service on Sunday, Sept. 25, but Gille noted that it was quickly realized that the panels needed to be front serviceable, which required a second installation round to make the solution one ideal for Gille and the rest of the Eastside staff.
Since the space which can seat up to 400 – made possible courtesy of a partnership with Whittier Christian High School - began utilizing the ROE Visual technology, Gille noted that the congregants have been impressed with the upgrade to an LED wall in the La Habra space.
“(The congregants) might not be able to articulate why (it’s better), but they say it’s great,” said Gille. “It feels like one of the measures of quality to get projection to LED where we can.”
One of the crucial elements to opting to go with ROE Visual was its proximity to La Habra, noted Gille, as the company’s headquarters in Irvine are less than 25 miles from the multisite location.
