PROLIGHTS & Avolites deliver bold looks for !Audacious Church
!Audacious Church was first set‐up in the heart of Manchester City Centre in 2007, and has since expanded with an established campus in Chester. The Chester campus moved in to its own building in 2017, accommodating around 400 people. Since acquiring the new premises, it has undergone upgrades to the sound system, and interior design, and now most recently lighting equipment.
!Audacious Church’s Production Manager, Lewis Wilkins was in charge of selecting the products for the upgrade, and approached specialist entertainment equipment supplier, A.C. Entertainment Technologies (AC‐ET) to help with this. All products needed to be easy to use and accessible to their volunteer base.
Looking for versatile fixtures that could work at a basic level, but also oﬀered more complex features that could be utilised as the team’s skills develop, Lewis chose the PROLIGHTS DigiStrip, an LED video pixel strip. On the same principle, as most of the lighting operators are volunteers, Lewis wanted an all‐in‐one control surface that provided an intuitive, easy to use system – for this he chose an Avolites Quartz – their smallest all‐in‐one console.
“Steve has been great! When you’re on this side of the process you are always concerned about being the nightmare client constantly changing things, but he has been wonderful from start to finish, always up front about any shipping/supply issues. I will have no issue ordering from AC‐ET again.” Concluded Lewis.
