Star Church in Indonesia recently installed a new video-friendly lighting package, which included over 65 CHAUVET Professional fixtures and was controlled by a ChamSys MagicQ MQ80 console.

 The church reached out to longtime vendor ASIIS for help putting the package together.

“The HD video camera is much less forgiving than the human eye,” said ASIIS’ Andy Mulya Sutikno, who oversaw the project. “The lighting in Star Church’s new building was designed to provide the color temperatures and smooth, even fields of light that would look great on camera without detracting from the live experience inside the church.”

Key to the new lighting design are the 16 Ovation F-165WW Fresnel fixtures that are flown on truss just beyond the stage apron.

“The color temperature and consistency of the light from these fixtures results in very natural skin tones on camera,” he added. “They also make it easy for the church to go from covering the whole stage to focusing on specific individuals. Moreover, with the even light field there are no distractive shadows.”

In addition to the Ovation fixtures, the new lighting system features 12 COLORdash Par-Hex 12 units, as well as 12 Rogue R2 Beam, 8 Rogue R2 Spot and 6 Rogue R3 Wash fixtures, plus 8 Ovation C-805FC cyc lights and 2 LED Followspot 120ST fixtures. There are also 12 COLORband T3 USB fixtures from CHAUVET DJ in the rig that work in conjunction with the Ovation cyc fixtures to provide backlighting. For atmospherics, the rig includes 2 Vesuvio RGB and 2 Amhaze Whisper foggers. 

“We considered broadcast applications with every fixture we installed in this church,” said Andy. “For example, the Rogue R3 Wash creates a very wide angle and natural colors, so it looks good on camera. It also can produce very appealing eye candy that looks great live or on video. Plus, it has very low floor noise. The Par-Hex 12 also gives us colors that complement skin tones.”
