To Hill, the most challenging aspects during any of the five install phases, was in “getting the lighting just right and the white balance right on the cameras,” and the overall implementation of the cameras. For Guess, what he found toughest during the final two phases, was the “running of the cables, getting them to their destinations, along with hanging the projectors in the right spot and aligning them.” The cabling became an issue, for example, after running nine cables at one time through the roof, only to discover there were some issues with the VGA cable, and then having to pull out the VGA cable, only to have to reinstall it later.

To help the pair along with much of the work at Living Faith, Hill noted that “We had volunteers who are contractors, and we were able to use their expertise. We would ask them, ‘Can you do this?’ and they would then be there the next morning at 5 and help to hang things.”

The most notable equipment additions during the last two phases were a combination of six Hitachi projectors, two Matrox TripleHead2Go modules, a Kramer presentations switcher/scaler, and a pair of Apple iMacs.

Among that equipment, much of the focus during the fourth phase was to implement environmental projection to the space, as well as a lyrics projection upgrade. The phase moved along rather quickly, noted Hill, in large part to working with Camron Ware, a leading expert in environmental projection.

“With his help, we learned where we needed to put (the equipment),” said Hill. “It probably took just a couple of nights, as we had the lift in place.”

The tools installed for a successful environmental projection implementation were three Hitachi CP-WU8700 WUXGA projectors. Paired with the LCD projectors is an iMac controlling the system and one Matrox TripleHead2Go external multi-display adapter. Those projectors, he said, “are shooting from the back of the room, and we built a nice shelf for them. They can’t be touched, as they are sitting high enough, so nothing gets in the way.”

Such flexibility was crucial, noted Hill, “When we were looking at options, and looking at environmental projection, we wanted to be able to throw up a color, or things like sermon promos, or to make the whole wall look like water. When I threw that idea to the pastor and the board members, they were on board.” Guess concurred by noting, “The goal was to create an environment that was inviting, to make you feel, in a way that you couldn’t do that solely with lights.”
