Ayrton Ghibli installed in Sound Waves at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City has installed thirty Ayrton Ghibli LED profile luminaires with framing shutters in its Sound Waves theatre. Full Production Services in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey, provided the fixtures, which are exclusively distributed in North America by ACT Lighting, Inc.


Sound Waves is a 1,500-seat venue that features stand-up comedy acts from Monday to Thursday, headline acts Friday and Saturday and production shows on Sunday. It has hosted Broadway shows, nationally-known headliners and corporate events since the hotel and casino opened in June 2018.


“The theatre had no intelligent lighting fixtures prior to adding the Ghibli fixtures,” says Entertainment Lead Ben Lynford. “The lighting rig consisted of incandescent PAR cans and lekos. Our goal was to create a flexible and capable LED house rig that could meet the needs of such a busy, multi-purpose venue.”


Four motorized electrics over the stage are trimmed at 23’ above the stage and two more in the house at 27’ and 25’. A CAT5 network distributes data to fixtures over ArtNet from a GrandMA2 at front-of-house.


Twenty-six Ghibli profiles are hung from the electrics over the stage with four fixtures placed on the floor in various configurations according to the requirements of different shows. Ben Lynford credits Production Manager James Keaton with helping to research the Ghibli fixtures and execute the design of the rig.
