Menlo Park multi-campus house of worship celebrates impressive systems upgrade

Paul Wonsek Associates (PWA) of Marietta, GA, and Michael Garrison Associates (MGA) of Fresno, CA, recently implemented an impressive $2 million renovation of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church.

Atlanta, GA (3-14-2012) - Paul Wonsek Associates (PWA) of Marietta, GA, and Michael Garrison Associates (MGA) of Fresno, CA, recently implemented an impressive $2 million renovation of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church. This ambitious project included upgrades to the existing acoustics, audio and video systems in addition to other building systems upgrades. Menlo Park Presbyterian Church's "home campus" attracts a diverse group of people to multiple weekend services held in two separate venues. More than 3,000 people attend services over four sites on a weekend.

With their home campus in Menlo Park, California, the Menlo Park Presbyterian network delivers 11 services each weekend from multiple locations. The main weekly programs take place at the Menlo Park headquarters, and are then broadcast live to their satellite locations in San Mateo, the Bay Area and Mountain View. Worship services hosted in the Menlo Park sanctuary include both traditional and informal services, where a live worship band and video messaging enlist the newly upgraded projection and audio equipment.

Three retractable projection screens were installed in the 1,100 capacity main sanctuary: one 9.0'x 16.0'Stewart Filmscreen with Ultramatte 130 and two 7.2'x 12.8' Stewart Filmscreen with Ultramatte 130. With a long throw distance plus ambient light to contend with, three 10,000 lumen Digital Projection TITAN 1080p-700 projectors were chosen to deliver the imagery to each screen.

For Durst and MGA, the project was a resounding success. Said Garrison, "We went from working with a church concerned that their budget might limit what the systems could accomplish to people thrilled with the finished product."

Many thanks to Menlo Park Presbyterian Church, Michael Garrison Associates and everyone else involved that selected DP's precision displays for this commanding installation.
