ATLANTA – Despite already having an LCD television wall in the worship space at their main campus, the signs for a needed change and upgrade were becoming increasingly evident at Victory World Church’s Norcross location.

We looked at a bunch of products at WFX, NAB and InfoComm, and we were drawn to the Coleder products each time ...

“We were losing color quality, clarity, and it was becoming a little unreliable,” noted Stage and Lighting Director Charlie Pike. The television wall, comprised of “seamless” panels, “was becoming very dated.”

The LED video wall install could have been targeted to be completed prior to Christmas, but Pike indicated that with the various aspects of the work, such a plan was untenable. Instead, the new equipment was planned to be “installed at the end of December, and be commissioned by the first week of January. It was a challenge to get it shipped, inventoried and assembled, so to get everything done by the first of January.”

Installed on time, the install featured a Kinesys variable speed hoist system for the wall, along with seven Elevation+ units with Liftket motors, all using heavy duty truss. While the church opted to get the project completed without an integrator, Pike noted that a structural engineer was hired to ensure “that we were hanging (the LED wall) with the correct weight.”

Overall, the project ran about three weeks, including the installation of the motor system. In all, the church purchased 180 panels from Coleder Display for the main campus, and another 90 for a satellite campus, for a ground-supported LED wall at that location.

The prospect of moving to a Coleder LED wall at Norcross, Pike said, first began to bear fruit a couple years ago, after having seen the company’s product on display at InfoComm. “You could see it across the hall. Some (manufacturers’ LED walls) looked great, others did not, but the Coleder looked better than others in that price range. There were others that were more expensive, but it was a great compromise in features, price, serviceability and viewing experience.”

After that initial introduction to Coleder, he noted continuing to be impressed with what the manufacturer offered at subsequent conferences. “We looked at a bunch of products at WFX, NAB and InfoComm, and we were drawn to the Coleder products each time,” Pike explained. Among the features that particularly grabbed his attention, he noted, was cableless connection between individual LED panels. “Instead, all the connections are made in the bulkhead, where it comes up and down very quickly, as you just clip it and move on to the next (panel).”
