Marcus Pointe Baptist Church

Pensacola, FL

All Pro Sound was recently asked to upgrade Marcus Pointe Baptist Church’s aging video projection system to high definition. The old system was rear-projected on a mirror system. In order to fulfill the need for larger screens, the rear projection room was abandoned, and video projectors with long-throw lenses were installed on the balcony face. Panasonic 3-chip DLP projectors highlight the video system along with Da-Lite’s new HD1.1 Progressive fabric screens, which provide a smoother and brighter HD image. Pro Presenter is used for graphics and video playback along with a Matrox TripleHead2Go, allowing for a nearly seamless 60′-wide image.

The center screen is retractable to allow the baptistery to be visible when desired. HD cameras from Panasonic complete the IMAG system along with a Panasonic HD video mixer. Marcus Pointe also does a live cut for the broadcast recording, and that is accomplished with the BlackMagic Design ATEM switcher. This feed is also modulated for RF HD distribution via the ZeeVee HD modulator.

The week the HD renovation was completed, Pensacola was hit with a massive rain storm, which produced lightning that had never before been seen in the area. A huge lightning strike hit the church, knocking out the audio console and lighting console. Within a week, APS had Marcus Pointe up and running with a new Allen & Heath iLive-T digital mixing console and LSC Clarity lighting control system.
