We wanted to share what the top blogs of 2015 were that resonated most with our audience.

10. First Multiscreen Setup ever

The other day I stumbled across something that simply blew my mind. A multiscreen setup using old projectors and multiple screens from 1959! That’s crazy. In turn it ended up to be the first multiscreen setup!

8. Simple Multiscreen suggestions

Multiscreen can be very complex, but it doesn’t have to be. To create a great environment for your events, youth ministry or worship services, all you need to do is a few simple things.

5. The Multiscreen Module

When looking into mutliscreen or environmental projection there’s almost always a question about lyrics, control, confidence monitors, stage display and more. What can you put on the center screen versus side screens? Can you only put lyrics center or on all the screens?


4. Projection on Ceiling: pros & cons

I stumbled upon an event space the other day who used projection on the ceiling as a way to showcase a few projects in the desert or the work of several architect’s in their design of buildings in the Moroccan desert. It reminded me how projection on the ceiling can be used in an event or in a space as a great addition to the experience of the people in attendance. There are many benefits and drawbacks to projecting on the ceiling, so lets dive right in.

Many of you in our community use ProPresenter on a regular basis, and we thought it would be fun to share 6 hidden ProPresenter Tips and Tricks that you may not have known about just in time for Easter this coming week.

So here are my Top 6 ProPresenter Tips (You may not have known about):


1. Super Bowl Halftime Show

The first thing to talk about is the projection; oh my there was a lot of it! All in all there were 90 Barco 26,000 lumen projectors! That’s over 2 Millions Lumens of light… just from PROJECTION! Absolutely insane. The projectors for the 2015 super Bowl halftime show were all edge blended together to fill a projection surface of 18,000 square feet where Katy Perry danced (with sharks mind you) and bedazzled us with a performance to stand the test of time.  Fun fact: only 80 pj’s were in use… they had 10 spares lying around.
