On this episode of LED Talk, host Tyler Kern was joined by Jon Lewis, Lead Consultant and Sales Representative at PixelFLEX, and Chris Clark, Director of Media, Southside Baptist Church to discuss the ins and outs of LED in the house of worship.
Clark, for context, described why his Southside Baptist Church decided to move their screens to LEDs, and what the advantages have been. One advantage: LEDs do not have the same glare issues Southside’s old monitors did, which make the screens easier to view when stage lights are on during services.
Lewis described the process PixelFlex goes through when working with churches on their needs.
“Finding out how they are currently exporting video and how they are currently putting content together,” Lewis said, are key findings PixelFLEX goes through with churches on needs assessment. “How big a screen do you need, how are you going to push content, and how intricate can you get,” are all important considerations.
Clark detailed his fantastic experience working with Lewis and PixelFLEX on Southside’s needs.
“Start to finish the whole process and working with John and PixelFLEX was as good as it could possibly be,” he said.
A key point, Clark mentioned, is his church budgeted out their needs and then worked with Lewis and PixelFLEX on the project and timing. For Lewis, his suggestion is houses of worship should start their conversations prior to when they want to make their purchase, so the deliverables are ready when they need them.
Lewis provided examples throughout the discussion of various uses for LED in churches, and the types of request he and his team receive. In the end, Clark’s satisfaction with the move to LED, left him with nothing but praise, and suggested other houses of worship should look into making the switch.
