When Ashland Christian Fellowship set out to do a complete lighting and architectural upgrade to its sanctuary, the pastors of the church decided the upgrade should include switching from a single, central projector, to a two-projector double screen set up. With the help of Pastor of Worship Rob Mackinnon, Ashland Christian Fellowship decided to install two Hitachi LP-WU9750B laser projectors in the new space. Mackinnon, with the help of David McLain of CCI Solutions, decided that Hitachi was the best choice for the job.

Ashland Christian Fellowship is a medium size church with three buildings and an outdoor courtyard that’s used for church services during the summer months. With a sanctuary built to host 500, the overall congregation at the church including multiple services is around 1,000. Earlier this year, Ashland Christian Fellowship began a series of sanctuary renovations to upgrade the interior, including the installation of a two-projector system. Mackinnon sought out the help of David McLain from CCI Solutions to ensure that Ashland Christian Fellowship got the best projector for the space and for the best price.

eagle-brook-church_22In a unique example of an EDM-style lighting fixture in a House of Worship, Nate Nohling, Lead Lighting Designer at Eagle Brook Church, a large ministry with six campuses across Minnesota, chose 156 ACL 360 Bar™ LED battens as the staple of a new lighting design.

“The number one thing I was shooting for when designing this set was impact,” Nohling explains. “I wanted to have a large quantity of fixtures that had the ability to create the impact we were looking for. That meant we needed a fixture that fit a price point that allowed us to have enough across all of our campuses to make an impact and a powerful beam from each fixture. We looked at a lot of different fixtures and the ACL 360 Bars were a great solution for what we needed.”

DiGiCo SD9s are “The Very Next Thing” for Casting Crowns on Tour

In Industry News by admin

digico_casting_crowns_4Most artists tend to pursue excellence in either the spiritual or the secular realms. Casting Crowns, however, has managed to stay at the top of their game in both, winning a Grammy Award and a Dove Award for their Contemporary Christian rock music that has successfully crossed the divide since 1999, when the band formed as part of a youth group at First Baptist Church in downtown Daytona Beach, Florida.

Casting Crowns is out on the road again this fall with “The Very Next Thing Tour,” which takes the group to arenas and churches across the Midwest, South and East Coast. The songs may be familiar to millions of listeners—the band’s career sales have exceeded 10 million records—but the sound is now even better thanks to a pair of DiGiCo SD9 consoles the band is using at front of house and monitors for the first time. The consoles were provided by Blackhawk Audio, which is also providing the JBL VerTec PA system and Meyer subwoofers that the band is carrying on tour.
