Southside Baptist Church in Warner Robins, Georgia, recently upgraded its dated LCD video system with a high-resolution FLEXTour 2.8mm LED video display provided by Nashville-based LED video manufacturer PixelFLEX.
Chris Clark, Southside Baptist director of media, explains: “In our previous design, we had an array of twenty-four 65-inch LCD TV’s, with a 2-inch bezel around each unit, so you can only imagine our challenges and frustrations. 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.”
Clark continues: “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, and after meeting with PixelFLEX, I knew that no matter what LED product we chose, it would be a PixelFLEX solution because working with them is like working with a friend.
“I am the full-time video technician at Southside Baptist and then we also have a volunteer crew that assists as well,” adds Clark. “During the installation, the FLEXTour system went together very easily, and as far as control, we come straight out of a computer running ProPresenter, into the PixelFLEX sending unit, and then to the LED screen in a very simple process. We are now using it for just about everything that you can think of, and it’s completely changed the experience for our congregation.”
