All LED Lighting Systems
The lighting systems at First Baptist Church Naples went through an extensive renovation during this time as well. Paragon 360 upgraded the entire system to LED equipment, removing the need for dimmers. Front lighting for the majority of the stage area used Chauvet’s Ovation E-910FC, a full color mixing LED ellipsoidal with full RGBA-Lime color mixing. This very quiet, RDM capable fixture, features a very flat, even field of light with superior color mixing. In addition, (20) High End Systems SolaFrame 2000 fixtures were installed to be used for front-lighting. The SolaFrames, being such a powerful automated spot fixture, give First Baptist Church Naples the flexibility to use the fixtures for front lighting, and/or creating a very modern worship experience.
Backlighting was achieved by using the Chauvet Rogue R3 Wash fixtures, which is proving to be a workhorse with its bright, evenly dispersed light, smooth color mixing, and 12-49 degree zoom range. The upgraded house-lighting system features Chroma-Q’s Inspire XT fixture, which has a high quality white and colored output that is absolutely, stunningly beautiful. The Inspire XT is extremely bright, energy efficient, and provides First Baptist Church Naples with a worship environment that is completely immersive, inspiring and impactful. The system is primarily DMX over Ethernet using ETC Paradigm and ETC network nodes, with some traditional DMX infrastructure to support the embedded lighting in scenic elements. All of this is easily controlled with a grandMA2 lighting console, using 11 universes of DMX control.
