As many churches and large event venues are adding additional monitors and projection screens, the term triple wide media is starting to circle around the industry. We’ve put together a basic introduction to triple wide media so you can decide if it might be a good next step for your organization.

What is triple wide resolution?
Triple wide resolution refers to a video, looping background or still picture that is specially designed to be projected on three screens. The actual resolution can vary from clip to clip (and projection program to projection program), but they typically run somewhere around 2400×600 or 3072×768.
Who uses triple wide resolution?
Triple wide resolution can really be used anywhere, but is particularly effective for big venues such as large churches, concerts, television studios and political rallies. By stretching one image across three screens, you create a panoramic image that engulfs your audience’s line of vision.
Can you give me an example of how triple wide is used?
Here is an example of how one church used a triple wide resolution image.
They had a triple wide resolution looping background that they set across three screens behind a worship band. The background was not overly complex, so it did not distract from with worship service taking place. Then, on two additional monitors, they took a still from the same looping background and placed the worship lyrics on top. When you put it all together you have a comprehensive visual experience that not only informs the audience, but also transports them to an entirely new environment.
Where can I get triple wide resolution material?
Triple wide resolution is relatively new for the stock footage scene, but there are some companies out there who are producing some really nice quality triple wide material. www.triplewidemedia.com is great because they offer all of their backgrounds and video in both triple wide, double wide and single resolution, so you can get the image that is perfect for your unique setup. Worship House Media also has a nice collection of multi-screen backgrounds that could be used in many different outlets.
