Enhanced Video Systems
The Paragon 360 Video Team designed and installed a new video system that not only greatly enhanced Harvard Avenue’s worship capabilities, but also enables live streaming of the church’s worship services. At the center of the new video system are two 14′ wide fixed frame screens, with projection provided by two Christie 7,000 lumen projectors. A Sharp 80” Commercial LED Confidence Monitor mounted on the back wall of the sanctuary provides visual cues & text for the Pastoral & Worship staff. A Panasonic remote controlled Pan/Tilt/Zoom camera with 30X zoom lens was also mounted on the back wall, below the 80″ LED display.
A 12×12 HD Video Matrix switcher controls routing of the video signals, with clean switching between sources. The cameras, the output of the Graphics Computer, and external playback sources are all routed through the switcher, and are available for viewing on the video screens independently, as well as on the back wall confidence monitor. A video signal from the router is also provided to Harvard Avenue’s Livestream network video interface, allowing for live streaming of the church’s worship services & other events.
New Lighting Systems
The new Lighting System at Harvard Avenue consists of (16) ETC Source Four ellipsoidal fixtures for front lighting, and (17) Elation SixPar 300 LED fixtures for back lighting, with the entire system being controlled by a High End Systems Hoglet 4 console. A total of 55′ of black powder coated truss from Applied Electronics was utilized for the lighting system, with two ellipsoidal fixtures located on each side of the sanctuary on tormentor pipes.
The Paragon 360 Lighting Team also utilized an ETC 12 Channel SmartPack Dimmer as part of the new lighting system at Harvard Avenue, which provides for multiple options of lighting environment in the sanctuary during worship services and other events. Multiple Chauvet products were also used as lighting for stage set pieces, including six Chauvet COLORDash Batten-Quad 12 fixtures, four COLORDash Par-Quad 7 fixtures, and four COLORDash Par-Quad 18 fixtures.
