Abundant Living Faith Center (El Paso, Texas) recently completed construction on its main auditorium, doubling its capacity to seat 3,620 members. As part of this upgrade, three Fujinon HA 18X7.6ERM-M Premier Series ENG HD lenses have been installed. The lenses come with a 2X extender and Digi-Power servo mounted on Thomson Grass Valley DMC 1000 cameras.
The lenses are positioned at a midpoint in the auditorium and were chosen for their ability to capture crisp HD images and provide congregants with close up shots of the pastor.
According to Jimmy Salas, Lighting and Video Director for Abundant Living Faith Center, the lenses excel in this requirement. "When you consider the size of the auditorium, getting good close-ups to project on the screens is very important," said Salas." Our center screen is 31 feet long, which demands a high-quality camera system and lenses. Thanks to the new video system, our church members can connect better with the pastor's message because they can truly see his emotion and the passion of his message coming through in the shot."
