Although some of the lesser expensive products were attractive, long-term support and serviceability from a reputable company were the deciding factors.


The Abundant Living Faith Center (ALFC) in El Paso, Texas, is a nondenominational, multicultural church with a large congregation of 30,000+ members and a spacious 3,620-seat main auditorium. The ministry sought to improve the quality of the auditorium stage’s visual backdrop and recently installed a large high-definition LED video wall by Elation Professional.

Design and systems integration company Michael Garrison Associates (MGA), who has a history of cooperation with the church dating back to 2004, replaced the mega-church’s original center projection screen with a 6mm pixel pitch EZ6 LED screen that produces high definition video. The EZ6 video wall is 38-feet wide by 20-feet high (20 x 11 panels, 1920 x 1080 pixels) and is suspended by eight chain hoists, allowing for vertical movement when desired.

After researching their options for high resolution LED video on both a technical and cost level, ALFC had several choices, according to MGA’s owner, Michael Garrison. Although some of the lesser expensive products were attractive, long-term support and serviceability from a reputable company were the deciding factors.

LED video options

“When you purchase a sophisticated product you need to think about service on both the hardware and software side,” Garrison comments, “and as a dealer we have to work with a manufacturer who is willing and able to stand behind the product. I told the church that they could save some money but that they’d be taking a risk. In the end, the church leadership decided they would have the security of not only MGA standing behind the product, but a reputable manufacturer in Elation who is based in the United States and has a reputation for taking care of their product.”

Technical support

MGA required support from Elation for some of the technical details, including assistance on how to rig the large screen—not only in the most cost effective way but in the safest manner, as well. “Elation also worked with us to color match with the side projection screens, and the result is great,” Garrison states. “We’ve had wonderful support in the installation phase but also before that in the design phase.” Next page
