Religious center focuses on faith with Fujinon HD lenses
The Abundant Living Faith Center (ALFC), in El Paso, TX, recently completed construction on a newly renovated building that now seats 3620 members. As part of this upgrade, three Fujinon HD ENG lenses on Grass Valley DMC 1000 cameras have been installed. IMAG images are displayed on a 31ft long center screen in the main auditorium.
Michael Garrison Associates (MGA), of Fresno, CA, integrated the technology systems throughout the ALFC’s revamped facility. The Fujinon HA 18X7.6ERM-M Premier Series 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.
A portion of ALFC weekly services are recorded for broadcast Sunday mornings on the local Fox affiliate. The services are recorded in uncompressed HD and then downconverted to SD prior to airing.
