The church, celebrating its 28th year earlier this month, has grown to include two satellite locations, and averages around 10,000 each week at its Norcross location, where the LED video wall was rolled out for a first time during services over the Jan. 6-7 weekend. The decision to do it then, explained Pike, was because “our pastor had just written a book, and the release of it was the first week of January.” In addition, there was a release of a new sermon series, on the 10 qualities of a disciple, and the work associated installing new rigging, the LED wall, the Kinesys system, moving the old television wall into the lobby, as well as setting up a new campus, made the prospect of completing the install prior to Christmas impractical.

The most challenging aspects of the install, Pike explained, began with the rigging. “We have a Fly Loft above our stage, and the existing mother grid was in the way of the new LED wall.  Eventually, we got it the way we needed to go.”

Other updates as part of the work included installing a new video server, and upgrading to ProVideoPlayer 3 by Renewed Vision, used for the video wall moved to the church’s lobby. Despite those changes, the church did opt to stay with the same Avolites AI video server that it used with the prior television wall.

“And we had to do (the video wall install) in all of about a week,” he added. That tight timeline was needed, so that the church could successfully complete the work with “zero down time,” he said.

Despite the multifaceted elements that were part of this install, Pike indicated that the church opted to not seek the help of an integrator, despite having opted to hire Clark, a national integrator with a location in Atlanta, for prior audio and video projects. Such decisions in the past were “If something requires to be engineered,” but for this project, he added, “I hired a bunch of extra contractors to” finish the install.

To get it done in such a small window, Pike indicated much of the credit had to be linked to the preplanning done for the installation.

“We didn’t have people standing around wondering what the next step was. They knew what that next step was and when it needed to get done. The success was in the planning,” said Pike. “If someone is looking to do an install like this, plan, plan, plan.”
