Grace Polaris Church plans for the future with Digital Projection


A multi-phased transformation project has seen Grace Polaris Church take delivery of two M-Vision 18000 projectors from Digital Projection to act as a platform for later upgrades that will bring the HOW a more modern and engaging worship experience. InteRise – a Solotech Company – was chosen to help transform the sizeable auditorium.

“We really wanted a full visual refresh,” explained Johnnie Barlow, video production manager at Grace Polaris. “Our previous setup made the sanctuary look somewhat empty given the large amount of space. We needed this update to match the size of the church and modernise it.”

Planning for the full renovation had not yet been completed, but the current video components for the church were rapidly failing. “For the longest time, we were holding our entire broadcast workflow together with spit, prayer and the hard work of a lot of dedicated volunteers,” continued Barlow. “Because the projection and image quality of our old system was so poor, we felt we couldn’t continue another year without doing something.”

The church needed a projector solution that would not only provide a powerful, instant improvement, but also act as a guide for the future renovation phases. “InteRise explained to us that the DP projectors they specified could easily bridge the gap between the old equipment and the new, so we made the decision to move ahead with adding the two models in advance of the rest of our AVL upgrade,” said Barlow. “The difference in what we had been seeing versus the new projected image was incredible. Even with a 30-year-old SD signal to drive the M-Visions, everything was remarkably brighter and cleaner.”

Powered by the M-Vision projectors, the wedge-shaped space now boasts two large screens set into angled walls on either side of the stage, allowing all congregants to enjoy an enhanced praise experience from every location in the room. Complementing the upgraded visuals, InteRise added new LED house and theatrical lighting systems, audio consoles, DSP amplification, wireless mics, digital cameras, switchers, routers, a full acoustic treatment plan and a broadcast control room.

“The DP M-Vision Laser 18K has changed my expectation for what can be done with a projector,” concluded Barlow. “With profound contrast, tack-sharp clarity and vibrant colours, our video production has never looked so good. It’s a powerhouse of projection that, for a surprisingly affordable price, can provide instant front-end improvement to any live production pipeline.”
