New Beginnings Christian Fellowship
New Beginnings Christian Fellowship, a church on 108th Ave SE in Kent, Washington.
New Beginnings Christian Fellowship had purchased some LED Tape and drivers to replace the lighting for their two crosses displayed in the sanctuary. LED tape is not always plug-and-play, and they needed it fo fit the contours of their crosses. They enlisted the help of PNTA Technical Services in installing the LED tape for them.
Type of Work: Lighting & Control
Our solution? In a few hours’ time onsite over the course of an afternoon and the following morning, PNTA installed the tape. It turned out that the corners of the crosses were too tight a radius to simply bend or bridge the tape, so PNTA cut and spliced the tape with several small soldered cables at each corner. The corners of the cross where the was only wire and no LED appeared much better than if the LED had gone all the way around, as the corners would have been much brighter than the rest of the cross.
At the end of the installation, PNTA patched the LED tape into the console for the client, saving them the hassle of figuring out available addresses and how best to patch them. We gave a few tips & tricks about a few functions of the lighting console to help speed up the programming process for them in the future. The previous cross backlighting had not been RGB, so taking a moment to expand upon the client’s knowledge of color programming at the console was worth the extra time.
