Projection Lattice

Steven Hall with brings us another unique design at Life.Church.

Last fall the team at Life.Church rolled out new stage designs throughout most of their campuses. Mod Scenes helped Life.Church create 32′ x 18′ projection backdrops using Coroplast cutouts. As with their other products, these panels were made of fire rated plastic. Each backdrop was made to a 16:9 format to make projection easy and eliminate the need for masking.

Here is how the Canvas Diamond Projection Screen was built.

First a 35′ wide pipe was hung from manual chain hoists so that the backdrop could be raised as it was built. This made it easy to have lots of people work on the set at once. Next the team loosely zip tied on black Mod Scenes connectors. Then the first row of Triangle edge panels was attached to these connectors with nylon carriage bolts and wing nuts. Next a row of 4 way connectors and a row of Canvas (square) panels were connected. Once the first two rows were all attached, the zip ties were tightened, ensuring the row was level.

Each additional row was attached in a similar fashion, using nylon bolts and wingnuts to attach rows of panels, then rows of connector plates.

Each backdrop was projected onto with a single Epson Pro L1505U laser projector (12k). The projectors were fitted with a Epson V12H004U04 short throw lens. The team at Summit Integrated Systems assisted the team at Life.Church with the installation of the video systems.

In total, Life.Church has installed this or similar projection screens throughout 28 of their campuses.

Total, used 4 different projection sets across their different campuses. They are all available through

You can see some of the great visuals the team at Life.Church created with the Canvas Diamond Projection Set below.

  1. This design is so awesome. How could I accomplish this without dropping $15,000 on a projector like that? Can you rent projectors of that caliber? Did they really spend $15,000 at every campus? More info on the projection piece would be helpful even though the concept is cool by itself in theory.

  2. You can rent projectors like that from lots of different production companies. I have seen other churches use 6k to 8k projectors if they have low ambient light on the screen area with success. If you can control the light hitting your screen well you can accomplish something with a similar projector for $5000 or so.

  3. What is the size of your outside screens? Thanks
