Passau, located in Bavaria in the South of Germany, is steeped in history rich with Baroque influence. The city’s design is dominated by large squares, romantic promenades and majestic bridges, and framed by the Veste Oberhaus castle and the Mariahilf monastery, the historical center looks like a floating ship. At the heart of its spectacular skyline is St Stephen’s Cathedral – created in the 17th century by Italian Baroque masters and home to the largest cathedral organ in the world. This was the impressive backdrop for ‘Symphony of Light and Sound’ – a projection-mapping showcase displayed on the façade of the imposing building.
Symphony of Light and Sound celebrated 350 years of Passau’s Baroque masterpiece, with the multimedia show telling the story of the cathedral, and the documents and architecture within. The event also incorporated sacred Christian music and takes spectators on a journey back through time – visiting the church in all its iterations over the decades.

At Cedarview Community Church, we teach God’s word, prioritize worship, welcome God’s spirit, proclaim salvation, seek God’s face, serve God’s people and have a heart for missions. As we strive to equip the local church body to grow and to be Christs’ extended hand to the community and world, we aim to do it with excellence and purpose by directing all attention to Jesus Christ. It’s important for the church to be focused on God’s word and to honor its authority over every aspect of our life and conduct. With that comes a heart of worship, a sensitivity the Holy Spirit in line with New Testament Scriptures and desire to reach the lost.
I have worked with Cedarview a few times. I actually attend the church and serve as their Technical Director, and over time – because of the age of the gear in the church – they needed to look at modernizing and replacements. In some cases, the church ran into emergency situations where gear needed to be replaced immediately. As an integration contractor, we set up a stewardship approach which allows churches to plan for natural evolution for failure and obsolescence, identifying and planning for replacement equipment before it reaches a fail point.
Woodlawn Baptist Church is a community church with a congregation of 250. When its 11-year-old projectors came to the end of their life, we decided to upgrade the entire projection system in the sanctuary to provide a better experience. With the help of Shepherd Multimedia, Woodlawn Baptist Church has become home to two new Hitachi CPWX-8750 7,500-lumen projectors.
Inside the sanctuary at Woodlawn Baptist Church, we have an AV set up complete with two new Hitachi CP-WX8750 projectors and screens, one on each side of the stage, for the congregation to be able to follow along with song lyrics, Scripture readings, testimonies, and announcements before and during services. Because of the A-line shaped ceiling, we have permanently mounted the projectors on the side walls near the back of the sanctuary, which also allows for easier access to change out bulbs. Equipped with long-throw lenses, the two new projectors have integrated into the entire AV system for easy control.
The projectors that we were using before the upgrade to the new Hitachi projectors were eleven years old. The picture at that point was so dim we had to turn the lights completely off in the sanctuary to see images. With the increase from 4,000 lumens to 7,500, the new projectors are a great improvement. On top of that, we installed two larger screens above our platform, which really helps with visibility when compared to projecting onto the wall. As well, with the Hitachi Perfect Fit feature, we can easily fine tune the image to the screens week to week.

BenQ LK952 4K HDR BlueCore Laser Projector Delivers Clarity and Reduces Operational Expense at Frisco Bible Church
Frisco Bible Church in Frisco, Texas, is celebrating 25 years. Founded by Pastor Wayne Braudrick, the church started with a congregation of only five families at a time when the rural farm town’s population was only 7,000. Since that time, Frisco has experienced a record-breaking boom and was the fastest-growing city in the United States in 2017. It now has a population of almost 180,000 with Frisco Bible Church serving 1,500 members.
“We have a small-town vibe and being close to Dallas — the home of the Cowboys and the National Soccer Museum — sports have heavily influenced and brought our community together,” said Josh Chilton, Technical Arts Director for Frisco Bible Church. Frisco Bible Church lives by it’s mission, “We are a redeemed community, doing the great commission, by the power of the Holy Spirit, for the glory of God.” Through that mission, the worship and technical ministries create connections to reach the world.
In 2011, Frisco Bible Church moved into its current location. At that time, three standard lamp projectors where installed in the church’s worship center to deliver lyrics, background imagery, sermon PowerPoints, and occasionally live video. The projectors’ upkeep, however, was steep. The church had to replace the bulbs and filters annually. The church was spending almost $2,000 a year on replacement bulbs that slowly diminished over the course of the year, impacting services. The projectors’ color wheels were also burning out after only 9 years of use, and the rear projector was no longer in operation.
