Manual Tab-Tension Screen for the ProAV Channel

In home_page, Industry News by tfwm

Elite ProAV presents the Manual Tab-Tension Series, as its premium grade non-electric personal to larger venue projector screen. The design features a manually operated bead chain clutch mechanism with a swift rolling sprocket that allows the material to stop at any point of its drop/rise operation. The tab-tension design allows the projection surface to be flat and taut so that ultra/short throw projectors may be used as well. The matte white material provides diffusion uniformity for everyone in the room to see the projected image with equal brightness. The housing is of a sturdy white enamelled aluminum construction. It is moisture resistant and available in a white finish. It includes flush sliding wall brackets that align with wall studs while allowing the installation to be perfectly centered.

Eiki Projection Technology Brings Clarity of Message to St. Paul’s Wolf’s Evangelical Covenant Church

In home_page, Install News, Uncategorized by Chris Hardin

With its goal of following in the Spirit of God and the footsteps of Jesus, St. Paul’s Wolf’s ECC (Evangelical Covenant Church) gathers to enable and equip people to impact lives for Christ. Offering programs for adults, youth, children, involvement in a food bank, as well as a program to help the homeless, the church has numerous opportunities for its members to get involved. St. Paul’s Wolf’s recently completed a substantial overhaul of its AV infrastructure, which in addition to a new sound reinforcement system also included new projection capability. On the video side of the equation, the church is now equipped with projection technology drawn from the catalog of Rancho Santa Margarita, CA-based Eiki International, Inc.

Reynolds AV of East Berlin, PA, a full-service design / build AV firm specializing in audio, video, and lighting services, was contracted to design and deploy the church’s new AV equipment. Karl Reynolds, the firm’s Project Manager, coordinates system design, project management, plus customer training and service for the company. After consulting with church management to determine their goals and requirements for the facility upgrade, Reynolds elected to install an Eiki EK-811W, 8,000 lumen WXGA DLP® laser projector to handle visuals in the sanctuary. He discussed the project and his reasons for installing Eiki projection technology.

Vista Systems’ Spyder picked for Video Projection System in Faith Bible’s New Sanctuary

In Install News by tfwm

Spyder X20 Front TransparentWhen Faith Bible Church, a Bible-centered church in The Woodlands, Texas, built a new 900-seat sanctuary, Houston-area AV contractor Hairel Enterprises selected a Vista Systems Spyder X20 0808 as a key component of the new video projection system.

Faith Bible marks the first use of a Vista Spyder by Hairel, which provided full AV and theatrical lighting for the sanctuary.  “I knew about Spyder and got in touch with Vista because I thought it would be a perfect fit for this installation,” says systems designer Bruce Simmons.  “My cold call to Vista turned into a four-hour conversation.  They arranged for a demo, and the church was elated by what they saw.”  The video projection system will be operational in late January 2015.

The new sanctuary has a raised platform area at its center.  A motorized 25×9-foot screen drops down from the ceiling for use in worship services and special events and productions.  Two additional 16×9-foot screens flank the center screen and are permanently affixed to the walls.  A two-projector center edge blend and the two outer single-projector images are accomplished with four Barco RLMW8 projectors and a Spyder X20 with 8 inputs and 8 outputs.
