Teletica Channel 7 in Costa Rica upgrades with Elation Lighting
Televisora de Costa Rica operates Teletica Canal 7, a private Costa Rican television channel that was the first television station in Costa Rica back in 1958. This year, Elation Professional automated luminaires were chosen as part of an ongoing lighting refurb.
During the install, Canal 7 lighting manager Alejandro Alvarez and his team handled rigging of the stage, including design and rigging of the TV lighting and intelligent moving heads, as well as configuring and mapping video, LED screens, and projectors. Alvarez is also behind the lighting console when many of the station’s shows air.
New additions to the rig include 10 Platinum Seven LED-based moving heads used for backlight wash with its 19 x 25 W LED face also making for an upstage effect light. According to Alvarez, the wash lights with their 7-color multi-chip LED engine have eliminated the need for Fresnel backlighting.
Six multi-functional Platinum FLX moving heads provide upstage looks and on-floor graphics effects. Alvarez uses the hybrid lights in both spot and beam mode. Elation Flex Pixel Tape is incorporated into the set for scenographic effect and is also used to simulate an LED screen at times. Alvarez also uses Elation EZ Kling interfaces for pixel mapping control. The new Elation lighting equipment was installed over a two-week period.
