Grace Church of North Carolina has created a new campus located between Chapel Hill and Durham in North Carolina’s famed Research Triangle, featuring the CHAUVET Professional Ovation and COLORdash LED luminaires that CSD used to anchor the lighting system. 

“This church is fully contemporary in style, but its leaders also wanted an immersive environment with a sense of transcendence,” said Doug Hood, president of the CSD Group. “The even warm white front and stage lighting we got from the Ovation fixtures makes it easy for worshippers to see the stage and connect to the people on it. When you look at a well-lit stage, you are more likely to become immersed in what you’re seeing.”

The CSD team installed 12 Ovation F-165WW Fresnels and 16 Ovation E-260WW with 26-degree lenses on downstage truss for front washing and key lighting, as well as 16 COLORdash Batten-Quad 6 linear fixtures along the front of the stage for low angle color foot lighting.

In addition, 16 COLORdash Par-Quad 7 fixtures were placed in each of the truss structures to enhance the room’s architectural features and add color and warmth to the room.

“The truss warmers provide a sense of height to the room without full lighting,” said Adam Henderson, Operations Manager of the CSD Group. 

The Ovation fixtures also enhance the quality of Grace’s video recordings.

“This is a very forward-looking church and video is an important part of its outreach,” said Henderson. “We definitely had to light for camera.  The good balanced white wash and natural looking warm white light we got from the Ovation fixtures was important.”
