Located in Warner Robins, Georgia, Southside Baptist is a congregation filled with uplifting music, encouraging messages, and an atmosphere of family unity.

“During the installation, the FLEXTour system went together very easily…”

Built on a foundation of excitement in sharing their faith, the church recently upgraded their antiquated LCD video system in a move to pave the way for a heightened worship experience.

The church opted to work with Nashville-based LED video manufacturer PixelFLEX™, to where the church is now enjoying the multitude of performance and maintenance benefits provided by a high-resolution FLEXTour 2.8mm LED video display.

“In our previous design, we had an array of 24 65-inch LCD TVs, with a two-inch bezel around each unit, so you can only imagine our challenges and frustrations,” noted Chris Clark, Southside Baptist Director of Media. “With the LCD display, it was impossible to create a seamless image, and it looked a bit clunky and cheap. Since I go to a lot of sporting events, I knew LED video would be an ideal solution, and we couldn’t be happier with our new high-definition, video system from PixelFLEX.”

A robust, high-definition and curveable LED video display, FLEXTour is designed specifically for the rigorous demands of live entertainment productions. With its unique rigging capabilities that allow for traditional and off-set configurations, each 500mmx1,000mm tile is fully front-serviceable and its integrated climbing ladder allows for quick access to displays flown high overhead. Built with the highest standard in components including the new NovaStar A8s receiving card, FLEXTour is completely flicker-free making it one of the premier LED video design solutions available today. 

Clark continued, “During our initial research, we also thought about the possibility of using a projection system, but it’s simply not as bright as LED video, and you have to worry about regularly changing bulbs. LED video is just better all-around, from both a maintenance and performance perspective.”

Getting started on the initial design, Clark knew that the size of the screen might present a small challenge. With a custom configuration needed to fit into the worship design, Clark also wanted to make sure that the image quality was something that no one in the congregation would forget.

“Physically speaking, we have a pretty odd shaped area where the video display hangs that is a little wider than a standard 16:9 format, roughly 29-feet wide and 11.5-feet tall,” explained Clark. “Since we didn’t want to change anything else about our worship design, I gave PixelFLEX our dimensions to see what they thought. We didn’t necessarily have a particular pixel pitch in mind either, but we really wanted something that was going to be colorful, bright, and completely clear. After that, they gave me a few options, and we chose the FLEXTour 2.8mm, which is insanely good.”
