PixelFLEX LED Panels Brighten Sunday Service

Bellevue Baptist Church with the new PixelFLEX LED curtain

Thousands crowded into Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis, Tennessee recently for a Sunday service not soon to be forgotten. PixelFLEX LED curtains adorned the church stage with a vivid, bright and high-quality video screen celebrating the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, adding a more lifelike feel to the service.

Flexible in all directions, PixelFLEX LED curtains are able to bend and shape around structures for a more creative display, which is why Tony Morris, director of technical services for Bellevue, decided to utilize the panels for the performance backdrop.

"The flexibility really provides many advantages over the hard, inflexible panels," said Morris. "Install and tear-down is extremely easy. Additionally, the rigging hardware on the top is simple to attach to the truss and the interconnection between the panels is all very straightforward."

The production team cleared out the 75' deep and 130' wide stage, which usually has a 65 piece orchestra and a 200 voice choir, to have a clean slate for creating the atmosphere desired. The panels (20mm - five panels) were used as a backdrop flown from a truss to enhance colors behind the singers, small band, and pastor presenting during service that morning. The church's stage has a trim height of about 45' above the stage and the crew trimmed out the panels at 25'.

Videos and images can be sent to the screen using any computer with a DVI-D connection -- PixelFLEX LED curtains are available from low resolution to high resolution, allowing users to demonstrate simple effects or elaborate videos. The high caliber visual components of the curtains come with customer service assistance and without the need for an extensive budget.

Pleased with the overall ease of set-up and tear-down, as well as the accessibility of the product, Morris said they are looking at additional ways of using PixelFLEX in the future.

"It's amazing just how bright those things are," said Morris. "We plan to try to incorporate the PixelFLEX panels in more elaborate productions moving forward to maximize the worship experience for our congregation."

Bellevue Baptist Church, founded in 1903 and based out of Memphis, is led by Pastor Dr. Steve Gaines and provides in church services as well as podcasts and television services for its members.
