To celebrate Galway’s status as European Capital of Culture, Finnish light artist Kari Kola was commissioned to turn the beautiful Connemara Mountains emerald green and sapphire blue. The result—a massive artwork called Savage Beauty, with Lough Na Fuaiche in the foreground—owed its success to around 900 lighting fixtures, many from the GLP catalog.
With the illuminated area spanning 500 hectares (measuring around 6.5km wide and 700m high), this vast canvas is believed to be the biggest light art project ever created.

BenQ, an internationally renowned provider of visual display and collaboration solutions, has expanded its BlueCore laser projector lineup with the launch of new 4,000- and 5,000-lumen models. The LU710 and LU930 offer WUXGA resolution while the LH710 and LH930 boast 1080p resolution, allowing organizations to update their meeting rooms with state-of-the-art BlueCore laser technology that fits the budget. Furthering the value of the LU and LH series, they eliminate the cost of replacing lamps used by lamp-based projectors, as well as the time spent cleaning filters with an IP5X-sealed and certified filter-free chassis that protects against dust.
“BenQ created the first-available commercial laser projector in 2012,” said Carly Burton-Sallay, digital marketing manager at BenQ America Corp. “Since that time, our engineers have worked tirelessly to develop higher-quality images at more affordable prices. Our LU and LH BlueCore series projectors enable every IT manager to swap out their legacy projectors and affordably upgrade to a high-brightness laser. With the same dust-protection certification earned by the most popular mobile and smart watch technology, they offer the the ultimate package for superior presentations and collaboration with the benefit of a lower total cost of ownership.”
Up from two-hundred congregants fifteen years ago to over 1,600 today, Ephrata Community Church in Ephrata, Pennsylvania has enjoyed the blessing of continued growth. Managing that blessing has been challenging, however. It necessitated increasing from one service a weekend to four, which taxed staff and damped the development of a full network of relationships across the community. Hence Ephrata Community Church launched an ambitious capital campaign to design and build a new state-of-the-art sanctuary that would accommodate 1,600 people. Local AVL integration firm Clair Solutions worked with the church from the very inception of the project to design and install a system that would capably meet their needs and provide room to grow while still keeping to a strict budget.
Clair Solutions’ relationship with Ephrata Community Church began with a small video project many years ago. The church wanted a new center projector and screen in their previous sanctuary, and Seth Morth, Clair Solutions engineering manager helped coordinate that purchase. “They appreciated our command of the technology and the way we worked with the people who will operate it, as well as our transparency and forthrightness,” said Morth, who served as the point person on this new sanctuary project.
