untitledNew Audio System Provides Even Coverage, High Speech Intelligibility and Great Music Quality

Describing itself as “a real-life community on the move,” Old Fort Church completed its new building in time for Easter services in 2016. The church’s 300-seat worship center features modern video and lighting systems and a high-performance audio system with Community I SERIES loudspeakers.

Old Fort Church holds two worship services each Sunday. The first is a “blended experience” with a mix of traditional and contemporary worship styles. The second is a “modern experience” featuring videos and contemporary Christian music led by a praise band.

Calvary Aurora is home to a wide range of ministries geared towards children, youth, and adults from all walks of life. To further ensure that its message is relevant and engaging, the church recently upgraded its video projection capabilities—drawing from the product catalog of Rancho Santa Margarita, CA-based Eiki International, Inc.

The new video system was designed and installed by Brett Nelson of Nelson Audio & Light of Eldon, MO, a sound, lighting, and video integrator that caters primarily to the worship and education markets. After consulting with church leadership to ascertain their goals and expectations, the decision was made to deploy four Eiki projectors: two LC-HDT2000 HD widescreen projectors with 15,000 ANSI lumens brightness, a 3000:1 contrast ratio, and native 2K resolution, and two LC-HDT700 HD widescreen projectors featuring 7,000 ANSI lumens brightness, a 2700:1 contrast ratio, with native 1080p resolution.
