Video walls have been growing in popularity at houses of worship, largely due to their brightness, image clarity, and limitless configuration possibilities. They’re also long-lasting and cost effective. Whether you are looking to display song lyrics, sermon points, or live IMAG video, LED walls help project your message in an unforgettable way to captivate your congregation. But video walls are not just useful inside the sanctuary. They can also be used for digital signage throughout the rest of the facility and beyond.

Here are some tips and considerations when planning to add an LED video wall:

Consider the size of screen that you need: Video screens can be as small or as large as desired, so think about how you’ll be using your LED display. Do you want to make a major impact, or do you need to convey information in a more intimate way? A welcoming LED wall, for example, needs to be much larger than a coffee counter menu video display.

Think about location: If the goal of your video wall is to welcome visitors and worshippers, it needs to be visible to every person as they enter your facility. And don’t forget to consider possible outdoor installation locations as well as those inside the sanctuary. If it’s purpose is to direct traffic, make sure it’s in a spot that the masses will be able to see.

Plan for the installation: Will you mount your video display to a wall, or will it be free-standing? Also, consider whether you’ll be able to hide cables and power cords, or if you’ll need to look at other methods of stowing them away.

Examine the surrounding area: How bright is the area where your LED wall or display will be situated? Does your LED wall have to be visible in sunlight, such as a roadside digital LED sign, or will it be used only in a darkened room?

Consider content: Initially, you may only plan to display images and text. But eventually, you may want to create a welcome video or showcase live worship services. You need to consider how you will control and feed content to your walls. Choose a video controller that not only controls and feeds content to your walls now, but also fits your goals for the future.

Prepare for the future: Think about how you’ll want to use your video wall in years to come. As your congregation grows, you’ll want your capabilities to keep pace.

LED video displays can be powerfully deployed throughout your facility to reinforce your message, providing a moving, inspirational worship experience that will not only capture the attention of your congregation, but increase interaction as well.

LED display systems are proven superior solutions for broadcasting messaging. Retail stores have long relied on the robust and budget-friendly technology, which is now being adopted by a diverse spectrum of organizations, including houses of worships. The leaders and administrators at churches and temples have discovered that replacing conventional printed signage with vibrant and dynamic LED displays captivates audiences and can dramatically enhance the worship experience.

On October 11-12, the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center in Dallas, Texas will play host to the Worship Facilities Conference and Expo 2017 (WFX). PixelFLEX LED will be on hand at Booth 1301 to demonstrate how integrating LED at worship houses is an affordable and effective way to greet guests, make announcements, promote engagement, and spread the word.

“We are very fortunate at PixelFLEX LED to have a number of technologies that are being used to create dramatic and exciting worship experiences across the nation, which is why we always enjoy coming to WFX,” said David Venus, PixelFLEX LED Director of Marketing.

As leaders in modern worship environments begin to understand the importance of visual technology, especially among younger audiences, several churches have turned to PixelFLEX LED to help integrate custom LED solutions to meet their specific needs.

Adam Frey, Technical Director for Substance Church in Minneapolis, MN, partnered with PixelFLEX LED to design one of the largest LED video walls in any house of worship. The church opted for the high-resolution and virtually flicker-free LED video FLEXTour™ LED video display as a tool to facilitate stronger community among church members and guests.

12Stone Church located in Gwinnett County, Georgia, came to PixelFLEX LED with a highly specific vision for the LED video elements they wanted to integrate into a new auditorium. Upon understanding their goals, PixelFLEX was able to design a breathtaking video wall consisting of 45 panels, which assists in staging unforgettable, high production value worship services.

Video wall projects can be rather unique, as revealed by the 3000 member First Baptist Church in Thomasville, GA, which offers traditional and contemporary worship services. To meet their one-of-a-kind needs, PixelFLEX LED helped develop a complete screen system that easily rolls up into the ceiling during traditional services and during sermons when the contemporary band is not playing. The design also employs two front serviceable side screens for lyrics, video, and IMAG.

Whether your house of worship is thinking about adding a road sign LED display or interior video wall, American-based PixelFLEX LED offers creative solutions, reliable products, and dependable service to make your vision a reality. “We are eager to demonstrate how PixelFLEX LED solutions are not only powerful, but user-friendly and cost-effective as well,” vows Mr. Venus. To learn more, please visit pixelflexled.com/house-of-worship/ today.

 

A church’s main goal is to help the community and communicate effectively with their congregants. With smartphones and digital communication becoming the premier tools for presenting information and handling social interaction, churches can more effectively promote events and help their communities by using innovative LED technology. Static signage and banners must be continuously replaced, and can become outdated quickly. According to a recent study, 63% more people notice LED signs than traditional static signage. In order to attract new visitors and ensure important messages reach passing cars, effective signage is key. LED technology can also motivate people in the community to become more involved. Congregation engagement increases as communication about upcoming opportunities and events becomes more immediate and eye-catching to members.

Churches can use this new dynamic medium to interact with members and attract curious newcomers. LED signage is much more effective than banners or regular signs. It can be customized and tailored daily to specific needs and goals. Incorporating digital visual production into signage enhances the communication experience, as LED signs make all messages more striking and efficient. Effective signage is critical in order to reach a large population, particularly in areas with lots of traffic.

First impressions are critical to attract visitors, and professional LED signage can help direct attention and convey important messages. Creative interactive LED signs allow churches to get event announcements out to passing cars to increase congregation involvement and drive newcomer engagement.

Fellowship and community service are of paramount importance in church communities. By employing informative and vivid signage, congregants can get connected with past accomplishments and stay up to date with upcoming events or seminars in the community. LED signs make it easier for visitors to know what events they can attend and can be used as the first form of communication in welcoming newcomers.

As churches search for new ways to intensify their interaction with existing members and attract new ones, sharing messages and announcing opportunities for community involvement can be done most effectively with PixelFLEX’s award winning LED signage. They provide clear and detailed imaging to effectively communicate key thoughts and information. PixelFLEX has a large variety of award winning LED displays to create nearly any size or shape you desire.  Whether the goal of your church community is to increase member involvement, keep the community at large more informed about your events, or simply interact with newcomers, effective LED solutions are the answer.

Have you ever thought about the messages your church community conveys every day? Perhaps your message is one of service, of fellowship, and of family values. Your community wants long-time community members as well as visitors to feel welcomed and involved in the good work you’re doing together, each day, each season, and each year. Despite these positive messages, you may be experiencing some turnover in your membership in our ever-changing and increasingly mobile society. With so much turnover and flux in the community, it’s vitally important your church does everything it can to foster member involvement and consistent engagement – to serve its members and the larger world in a meaningful way.

Communicating the story and the mission of the church body effectively, and welcoming newcomers into the vision of that body’s future, is an essential part of fostering deep connection among community members and serving your church’s ongoing mission.

Visual aids have become an indispensable resource for dynamic churches seeking to grow and expand their outreach capabilities. LED displays are a powerful visual aid that many forward-looking communities are embracing, both to communicate with members and to reach the larger community. PixelFLEX solutions have become indispensable providers of visual aids to church communities. LED displays can be used indoors to support worship, and outdoors to make the public aware of what is happening in the church each week. PixelFLEX is a committed partner in communicating your church’s vision.

No technological innovation in the last twenty years has had more impact on attendance and retention at church services than visual enhancements. With growing competition for people’s attention in the form of handheld technology, churches can struggle to capture the eye of its congregation. All denominations are finding impressive ways to engage, inform, and entertain their membership utilizing LED displays. PixelFLEX has been a leading innovator in this relatively recent market, offering churches new possibilities to capture and hold an audience’s interest. Incorporating visuals into sermons, services, music, and announcements enhances the experience for all attendees.

Far more effective than a simple video wall, LED displays can be customized by size, configuration, and resolution. LED outdoor displays can notify passersby of church services and events. Lobby displays can act as welcome centers, creating opportunities to greet and direct new guests to offices, classrooms, or worship services. Incorporated into hallways and other focal points, LEDs can offer anything from purely decorative enhancements, to important announcements, to inspiring messages. With nearly infinite possibilities, LEDs can enhance the door-to-door experience of every church member.

PixelFLEX is an industry leader in harnessing the best of those possibilities for innovative solutions to answer the unique challenges churches face. PixelFLEX’s customizable indoor and outdoor LED displays and signage are striking, seamless, and efficient. Spend some time in one of our client churches and you’ll agree that PixelFLEX’s solutions look like your future.

Church communities that excel at breaking through the standard “noise” of life will stand a much better chance of drawing and retaining new members, which is key to ensuring the organization’s mission to serve.
