The screens have been installed in the UCKG Park Station Cathedral in Johannesburg. Specified to ensure that all 7,000 members of the congregation have a clear view of services, the screens were recommended and installed by the project’s AV contractor, Questek Customer Care (QCC).
QCC selected dnp’s Supernova Screens primarily because of their ability to provide quality images in high ambient light conditions. Two Supernova 300 x 169cm Infinity Screens have been set up in the basement of the church, which is primarily used for baptisms, projected onto by a pair of 6000 ANSI lumens HD projectors. A further four Supernova 400 x 225cm screens have been installed on the main ground floor to display images broadcast from 10,000 ANSI lumens HD video cameras; two of the screens are mounted next to the altar.
To ensure that people at the rear of the cathedral have a good view, QCC has mounted screens on a frame, which is suspended from the ceiling by steel cables.
“The UCKG Park Station Cathedral installation in South Africa of Supernova Infinity is a breakthrough for dnp denmark into the church market on the African continent,” dnp global sales manager Soeren Kraemmergaard told IE. “We appreciate that the worship market now sees the benefit by using our optical screens in extreme ambient light operating conditions. The motto ‘seeing is believing’ is really coming alive here.”
