Brightening up Northview Church


Northview Church boasts seven campuses in the greater Indianapolis area, and its congregation continues to grow. Up to 2,200 attend services at the church’s main campus in Carmel, and are served visual content from a whopping 80-foot x 30-feet projection screen, as well as IMAG from smaller screens to the sides. The projection system catering to the giant, central screen was more than 10 years old though and losing its brightness. Therefore, Travis Carpenter, the church’s production service manager, sought assistance from Jon Cawston of JNE Productions, ultimately resulting in the installation of six Barco UDX 4K32 projectors.

The lack of brightness exuded by the old projection system was detracting from the worship experience, so Mr Carpenter looked into possible new solutions to add some brightness to the screen to fully engage congregants. He looked into various options, including replacing the screen with LED panels, however, infrastructure issues made this too costly at the Carmel site. Barco’s UDX 4K32 projector was finally chosen due to its bright, laser technology.

‘We did a demo in the space comparing the existing equipment to the Barco UDX,’ revealed Mr Carpenter. ‘There was no comparison.’

The installation took three days, ensuring no Sunday services were interrupted. This process included the installation of hydraulic lifts, implementation of additional voltage and the adjustment of image blending so that the six projectors form one large, seamless image. Mr Carpenter also upgraded Northview’s screen management solution to Barco’s E2 Master system, which is capable of managing a 4K projector blend with refresh rates up to 60Hz.

The screen is now much brighter than before and congregants are said to be more engaged than ever. ‘The UDX addresses the simultaneous issues of brightness, system flexibility, and frame delay,’ said Mr Cawston.
