Ayrton Perseo supports Castle of Light in Edinburgh

Through November and December 2019, the city of Edinburgh, Scotland, was treated to the inaugural Castle of Light, a celebratory visualisation of Edinburgh’s history portrayed by a combination of mapping, projection, lighting and audio. As part of the lighting design, nine of Ayrton’s Perseo-S fixtures were used, in particular during the finale of the promenade performance.


NL Productions (NLP) were part of a consortium that created the Castle of Light and Phil O’Halloran, MD of NLP and Technical Production Manager for the event, explains why the Perseo-S was the fixture of choice: “The Castle of Light show was a huge event for the city; the historical narrative was told through extensive mapping and video effects, culminating in the finale piece in the Castle’s Crown Square where we mapped the entire front façade of the Royal Palace.


“Five Perseo-S units were to be rigged on the Palace roof with two more on the left and right PA towers at ground level. We had a very limited amount of power available in such an inaccessible location so the LED engine was a must.”


Together with the other members of the production consortium - War Productions, Double Take Projections and Andy McGregor Design - and with support from Ambersphere Solutions and Impact Production Services (IPS), NLP went through a shoot-out process to judge which luminaire would be best suited to this application and Perseo-S came out on top.
