Challenge: North Belfast’s Whitewell Metropolitan Tabernacle boasts seating space for over 3,000 people, making it one of Europe’s biggest church buildings. Definitely not a stranger to modern technology, Whitewell required appropriately powerful projection to convey the right message to its congregation in the church’s bright environment.
Solution: Whitewell opted for two Barco FLM R20+ projectors, augmented with Barco’s ScreenPRO Presentation System. The SXGA+, 20,000 lumens three-chip DLP FLM R20+ projector has the right light output to outmatch the strong ambient light conditions in the church. In addition, it offers both excellent live video feed quality from the five camera vision mix, or outstanding recorded footage.
Why Barco: Apart from projecting stunningly bright images with a very low delay, the FLM R20+ is known for its liquid-cooled, sealed optical engine. This not only prevents dust from entering the projector’s interior, but also reduces its noise levels to some of the lowest in its class. With Barco’s ScreenPRO Presentation System, the church’s staff can create a large number of show effects, including up to two independent picture-in-picture windows, smooth image transitions and borders effects.
