Founded in January 1969, First Church Coral Springs has experienced dramatic growth over the years. While the original church—known as Robey Hall—continues to serve a number of important roles on campus, a larger sanctuary was constructed and, these days, serves as the primary worship space. Rain accompanied by lightning are routine occurrences in Southern Florida and, occasionally, lightning strikes cause electrical outages and related issues. Such was the case recently, which required the replacement of the church’s projectors—resulting in the deployment of new equipment drawn from the catalog of Rancho Santa Margarita, CA-based Eiki International, Inc.
Creative Sound and Lighting Solutions of Cape Coral, FL, an AV installation company that is primarily focused on the House of Worship market, was contracted to specify and deploy the church’s new equipment. After meeting with church management to ascertain their goals and objectives, the team decided to deploy a combination of two Eiki EK-600U 6,000 Lumen DLP projectors, one EK-601W 5,500 Lumen DLP projector, and an LC-WBS500 5,100 Lumen LCD projector. Rob Robinson, Creative Sound and Lighting Solutions’ system designer, discussed the project.
