Elation lighting system for Legends Casino and Events Center

Legends Casino Hotel and Events Center, located in Toppenish, Washington, recently built a new events center and reached out to Elation Professional dealer Morgan Sound, Inc. of Lynnwood, Washington, for a vision to transform a 200' x 200' ballroom into a 1,750- seat concert and performance venue. Morgan Sound was contracted to design and install the audio, lighting, video, staging, and drapery systems.

 

They equipped the new events center with an all LED lighting system from Elation, consisting of 34 Seven Par 19IP Par lights, 16 Rayzor 760 moving heads, 12 Artiste DaVinci moving head spots, 10 Colour 5 Profile ellipsoidals and 6 Cuepix Blinder WW2 luminaires. Elation rep firm Audio Source and Jim Gragham was instrumental in getting Morgan Sound the fixtures and assisting with product selection and demos.

Essex Sound equips church with VUE AL-4 subcompact line array

Co-lead pastor Justin Hoeppner had been planning an audio system upgrade for New Community Church in Vista, California, for almost twoyears. The church seats about 600 with the aid of a balcony that extends out over half of the lower level.

 

“Our old system was tired, rundown and cranky. It had virtually no high frequency response which gave us a muddy mid-range,” says Hoeppner. New Community was founded in 1926 and their current building is more than 25 years old. They decided it was time for an upgrade.

 

After connecting with VUE partners Essex Sound and designing a system to cater to their building’s needs, the AL-4 line array was installed. To accommodate the shape of the auditorium, 120 degree wide dispersion horns were used to ensure proper coverage.

 

Two AL-4 arrays (eight elements per side) were suspended and wired in stereo by request. Two AS-215 subwoofers fill out the low-end. VUEpoint Beam Forming allowed the system to be aimed to cover the balcony and lower seating area, while attenuating hot spots.

DAS Audio loudspeakers installed at Copper Blues Rock Pub and Kitchen

DAS Audio loudspeakers installed at Copper Blues Rock Pub and Kitchen

Loudspeakers from the Vantec and Artec series catalogs of Valencia, Spain-based DAS Audio were recently deployed at the Copper Blues Rock Pub and Kitchen in Miami, Florida. Miami-based AV design/build firm Light F/X Pros was contracted to design and deploy the loudspeaker system at the venue.

 

“The venue operates as a restaurant, concert hall, and party room,” says Jhander Orihuela, Audio Engineer for Light F/X Pros. “As a result, the system required the SPL (sound pressure level) to provide solid coverage throughout the space, depending on the activities taking place at any given time, in addition to having both a high level of speech intelligibility and music reproduction capabilities.”

 

The primary sound setup consists of six DAS Vantec 20A active curved source line array elements - flown three enclosures each for the left and right sides. These are accompanied by four DAS Vantec 118A powered bass reflex subwoofers - placed two enclosures per side.

 

The delay systems at the Copper Blues Rock Pub and Kitchen are distributed throughout eight zones. Here, the Light F/X Pros crew deployed four DAS Artec 526A enclosures each for zones one and two, six Artec 508A enclosures for zones three and four, and another six DAS Arco 24T 2-way point source enclosures throughout zone five (the terrace). Completing the setup, an Ovi 12 loudspeaker fills the zone six hallway while ten DAS CL-6TB ceiling loudspeakers complete zones seven and eight.

Café OZ creates multiple experiences with Chauvet

More than 1.2 million Australians visit France every year according to a DGE and Banque de France survey. Those who happen to drop by a Café OZ will experience a familiar sense of home. For 25 years, these places have been treating customers to an “Australian Style” pub and club atmosphere in France with music, sports, and more.

 

There are three Café Oz locations in Paris and one in Bordeaux. Each has décor suggestive of the Land Down Under with Australian flags, posters and statues of native fauna like kangaroos. They also feature a collection of Chauvet Professional fixtures. Each venue has its own rig of lighting fixtures depending on its design and the general nature of its customer base according to Remy Zakine, artistic director of Café Oz.

 

At Café Oz Châtelet the 11°-48° zoom range of The Rogue R1 Wash allows Zakine to get wide coverage with the lights, despite the low hanging positions. Zakine has ten of these RGBW moving LED fixtures placed throughout the club. Accenting the features of the Café Oz Châtelet are 24 Épix Strip Tour fixtures that Zakine has placed in the room.

 

At Café Oz Denfert Rochereau Zakine uses two Rogue R2 Wash fixtures to create festive color tones at this location. He also called on two Rogue R1 Spot units to provide some accents. Café Oz at the Grand Boulevards houses a lighting rig that includes four Intimidator Trio and four Intimidator Spot 260 fixtures from Chauvet DJ.

 

In the Bordeaux location, which serves as a sports bar, after work meeting place, restaurant, and nightclub, the rig features four Rogue R2 Wash, four Rogue R1 Wash and four Strike 4 fixtures.

Wärtsilä chooses Martin Audio

Wärtsilä chooses Martin Audio

Wärtsilä Entertainment Systems has solved the challenge of delivering a nightclub experience at sea with the first ever installation of Martin Audio’s recently launched WPS optimised line array.

 

The latest member of the Wavefront Precision family was specified long before its official launch to cater to the entertainment needs of Scarlet Lady, the very first ship in the Virgin Voyages fleet.

 

“We started audio specification for the ship back in 2016 but thanks to the strength of relationship with Martin Audio we were able to glimpse into the future product roadmap and as a consequence believed that the product that would become WPS was a perfect fit for the nightclub,” explains Rob Shuard, Vice President, Design & Engineering of Wärtsilä Entertainment Systems.

 

‘The Manor’ nightclub is named after Virgin’s first music studio in England. The space was designed utilizing two ship decks of height to maximize how the room feels and mimic the structure of land-based clubs. Wärtsilä Entertainment Systems has equipped The Manor with an acoustic design as well as equipment to support DJ sets.

 

The set up in the nightclub consists of four WPS left and right of the stage, flown over two SX218 subwoofers. Supplementing this are a further four arrays, each of three WPS, flown over the dancefloor. The system is all powered by four iKon iK42 amplifiers supporting a 2 box resolution for enhanced coverage, consistency and control.

For recent productions of the plays “My Favorite Year” and “Children of Eden” at Mountview’s new theatre in London, Nic Farman used a collection of Chauvet Professional Ovation fixtures supplied by White Light, which are part of the theatre’s new lighting rig.

 

In both cases, the use of color was front and center in Farman’s design strategy. “I’m a big fan of using a rich color palette,” he says. “The rig I had in Mountview’s new theatre allowed me to play with everything from deep saturates to subtle pastels for both shows. Farman used eight Ovation B-2805FC fixtures and two Ovation B-1965FC units to wash the cyc, both from the top and the bottom.

 

Farman had to transform the theatre space into two very different productions in a short period of time, and with an essentially fixed rig. He credits his team Antony, the Production LX and Follow Spot Operators Alice, David, Emma and Issac as well as the Mountview staff with helping to make it happen.

Elation lighting system installed at new Rhythmic Gymnastics Centre in Moscow

The Irina A. Viner-Usmanova Rhythmic Gymnastics Centre, a new gymnastics venue in Moscow, Russia, houses an Elation Professional lighting system. Featuring a main performance arena and facade that resembles the wave of a gymnastic ribbon, the Centre can host any type of gymnastics event from local competition to world championship.

 

Elation distributor LPD Tech was contracted to provide the lighting system and chose the Elation Platinum FLX hybrid moving head. LPD completed the general design of the venue’s multimedia systems, including supply and installation of the sound and lighting equipment.

 

Located in the venue’s central arena, 26 of the Platinum FLX fixtures fulfill the main lighting role in a design completed by the LPD engineering team. The Elation lighting fixtures are controlled by a new Obsidian NX 2 lighting console in combination with Elation eNode4 Ethernet-DMX routers.

 

Running Obsidian Control Systems’ proprietary Onyx software, the Rhythmic Gymnastics Centre is the first installation in Russia of the NX 2 lighting controller.

Chauvet fixtures used at Campus Serge Kampf Les Fontaines

At Campus Serge Kampf Les Fontaines, a château nestled in a wooded area 57 km north of Paris, business leaders from throughout Europe gather surrounded by the most modern and advanced technical communications and analytic tools to invent new solutions to the issues of today and tomorrow.

 

Helping to liberate the spirit of discovery in campus guests, and encourage them to explore heretofore unknown possibilities, is “Let’s Dare,” a new immersive video and lighting environment created by Stardust Group with help from Chauvet Professional Épix fixtures.

 

“We have been the technical service provide to Serge Kampf Campus for some time,” says Stardust Group Development Director Eric Matouk. “Through our association with the campus we work on many events for CAC 40 companies. For the “Let’s Dare” experience we placed guests in a 180° video environment that evokes a ‘virtual reality’ sensation, but without the glasses. We want to engage our audience while still conveying a sense of real life.”

 

Stardust Group extended the impact of this immersive video wall by installing 60 Épix Strip IP fixtures. The company’s team, which included technical director Tony Gueniffet, site supervisor Cédric Cousin, audiovisual managers Tony Chauvin and Sebastien Parent, and systems operator Florimon, positioned 30 of the one-meter RGB LED linear fixtures in various positions on either side of the video wall. The strips were powered by three IP drivers. “We configured the Épix Strips in 300 parameters,” says Matouk. “They broadcast all content in real time.”

Vue systems installed at My Yard Live

Located in San Marcos, California, My Yard Live is a venue that brings together elements of a community center, park, upscale eatery, beer garden, and live entertainment venue. Mixed indoor and outdoor spaces offer multiple options.

 

My Yard Live owners called on San Diego-based AV King to design and install audio solutions for each of the audience environments across the venue. With open ceilings, highly reflective concrete floors and more than 17,000 square-feet hosting different environments and audiences, My Yard Live presented some challenges for AV King owner Fady Hermez.

 

“In the bar and other adult-oriented areas, the music needs to crank, especially in the evening hours,” explains Hermez. “In the kid’s patio area, the sound is more ambient. The louder the audio, the more the kids shout, so we needed to roll it back quite a bit. Finally, there’s a PA for the main stage that can handle live acts or DJs.”

 

For the distributed systems, Hermez selected the Vue E-352 Nano speaker, which features a center-mounted beryllium high frequency dome tweeter flanked by a pair of 3.5-inch high-output cone transducers. For low frequency, Hermez opted for the ES-269 dual 6x9-inch subwoofer with patent-pending Active Compliance Management (ACM) technology.

 

The subwoofers are mounted in the overhead truss while the ES-269 systems are mostly wall-mounted, just above head-height. A single subwoofer and two E-352 satellites are installed in each primary entertainment area, including the inside dining room, patio bar, and inside kids play area.

 

A total of four rack-mount VueDrive V-242 series systems engines provide power and processing for the E-Class systems, while a DBX ZonePro facilitates system-wide routing and delay control.

 

For the venue’s main stage Hermez selected a pair of Vue H-12 high definition two-way systems as mains, with HS-25 dual 15-inch ACM subwoofers handling the low end. Monitor duty comes courtesy of four Vue HM-108a compact monitoring system. All three H-Class systems on the main stage feature onboard VueDrive electronics, which deliver power and system access via the SystemVue software.

Earlier this year, the old and fading Pierre Cravey Ballroom in in La Teste-de-Buch, France, was reborn as the modern Le Theatre Cravey. The theatre’s new lighting system - designed by the Bordeaux-based Concept Group - features Chauvet Professional Ovation and Colorado LED fixtures.

 

“We had to rethink the entire technological core of the building,” says Stéphane Pouydesseau of the Concept Group, which also was responsible for installing an all-new audio system at Le Theatre Cravey.

 

“Our team worked very closely with the facility’s stage manager Frédéric Nadeau to define the audio and lighting products that were most appropriate for the building’s needs.”

 

Considered from the lighting perspective, the list of products included 10 Ovation E-930VW ellipsoidal fixtures and 10 Colorado 2-Quad Zoom wash units. “The ellipsoidals and washes are used from different positions depending on the show being performed,” says Pouydesseau.

Riverside Theatre invests in Robe

Riverside Theatres is a multi-venue performing arts centre in Parramatta CBD in the western suburbs of Sydney, Australia. Opened in 1988, its various venues include the 761-seat proscenium arch Riverside Theatre, the 213 capacity Lennox Theatre, and the Raffety’s Theatre which can accommodate an audience of 88.

 

In the last year, the Riverside has invested in Robe DL4S Profiles and LEDWash 300 moving lights for the main venue. These are the first moving lights they have owned and the second batch of LED lights to be installed in the space, part of a programme that will transition the entire complex to more sustainable light sources. The timing of the purchase was also designed to reduce the need for external sub hires of LED fixtures which had accelerated during the previous season.

 

The new Robes are now part of the standard house rig offered to incoming shows in the Riverside Theatre, where they can be swapped between different LX bars and the floor.

Speaking Rock Entertainment Center upgrades to Martin Audio

SRB Consulting & Design has installed a Martin Audio system consisting of WPC line arrays, SXH218 and SX118 subs and CDD12s as part of an upgrade at the Speaking Rock Entertainment Center in El Paso, Texas.

 

The sound system comprises five Martin Audio WPC a side - flown alongside the stage with outfills of four WPC on stage left - since the room is L-shaped. Eight SXH218 subs are ground-stacked on the floor directly under the edge of the stage.

 

The system is powered with 11 Martin Audio iK42 amps using one box resolution. The CDD12s mounted in the balcony are used for extra speech reinforcement in lower volume situations.

 

In addition, WPMs are positioned on stage for band sidefills along with four SX118s which are used for sidefills or drum fills, depending on the setup. Four CDD12-WRs are mounted above the outdoor bars and the doors leading into the facility.

ASC stattet Beach Club der „AidaNova“ aus

Auf dem Activity-Deck 16 des Kreuzfahrtschiffs „AidaNova“ kommen alle Familien-Freizeitbereiche zusammen; das Areal Four Elements und der Beach Club fallen weitläufig aus. Zwischen beiden Bereichen befinden sich der Mini Club, der Kids Club und der Wave Club für Teenager.

 

Der Beach Club ist als lichtdurchflutetes, karibisches Areal gestaltet. In Anlehnung an diese exotische Kulisse hat Amptown System Company (ASC) outdoortaugliche und auf die Architektur farblich abgestimmte Audio-, Licht- und Videotechnik eingesetzt, die der Luftfeuchtigkeit und den hohen Temperaturen trotzt.

 

Unter einem großflächigen Foliendom befinden sich ein Jacuzzi, mehrere Pools und eine Bar. Tagsüber verbringen Familien mit Kindern Zeit im Beach Club; abends verwandelt sich das Areal in eine Diskothek für Erwachsene.

 

Das Foliendach wird bei dieser Gelegenheit mit 560 Martin-Exterior-PixLine-10-LED-Videosticks illuminiert, deren Ansteuerung sowohl lokal als auch aus dem Broadcast Center (BCC) möglich ist.

 

Vier Christie-DLP-Laserprojektoren des Typs D13WU sind am DJ-Platz installiert und werfen ihre Bilder nachts in das Foliendach. Eine Lasershow mit Tarm-Lasersystemen aus der Laserworld Gruppe gehört ebenfalls zum Programm.

 

Blickpunkt im Beach Club ist eine 41 Quadratmeter messende, aus Absen-Modulen zusammengesetzte LED-Wand: Ein Großteil der Fläche wird von XD10-Kacheln gebildet; dazu hat ASC zwei hochauflösende XD6-Felder im 16:9-Format in die Wall integriert.

 

„Die Einbindung der Absen-LED-Module war möglich, da die Absen-Tiles unabhängig von ihrer Auflösung gleiche Baugrößen aufweisen“, erläutert Malte Polli Holstein, ASC Vice President Maritime Business. „Dass überhaupt zwei 16:9-Screens eingebettet wurden, ist einer Tür zuzuschreiben, die mittig in die LED-Fläche eingebaut werden musste und dem auf einem Rollriser platzierten Drumkit den Zugang zur Bühne ermöglicht.“

 

Der Content für die Bildwand ist auf Servern von XI-Machines abgelegt. „Die Speicherkapazitäten für den Video-Content im Beach Club sind großzügig dimensioniert“, sagt Bernhard Loesken, Senior Superindendent Entertainment/Mediatechnics Newbuildings für Aida. „Hier kommen vorwiegend Solid-State-Disks anstelle von konventionellen Festplatten zum Einsatz.“

 

Vor der LED-Wand befindet sich eine Bühne, auf der Live-Acts auftreten. Der Sound-Mix erfolgt über eine DiGiCo-SD8-Konsole, für den Monitorsound der Bands kommt ein Aviom-In-Ear-Monitoring zum Einsatz.

 

Für das Bühnenmonitoring hat ASC sechs M4-Monitorlautsprecher von D&B Audiotechnik ausgewählt. Seewasser-resistente Line-Arrays aus speziallackierten Vi8- und Vi12-Komponenten, kombiniert mit B22-Subwoofern von D&B verbergen sich in zwei Säulen, die mit akustisch transparenten und spezialbehandelten Gittern verkleidet sind.

 

Des Weiteren realisieren E8- und E12-Punktquellen-Lautsprecher des deutschen Lautsprecherherstellers im Beach Club den Sound. „Als Endstufen aus dem Portfolio von D&B werden an Bord ausschließlich die für Installationsanwendungen konzipierten Vierkanal-Modelle 10D und 30D eingesetzt; typische Touring-Amps sind hingegen auf dem Schiff nicht zu finden“, so Bernhard Loesken.

 

Die Lichttechnik im Beach Club besteht aus den LED-Washlights 210 und 320 aus der Exterior-Wash-Serie von Martin Professional sowie den Outdoor-Moving-Heads G-7 Spot und G-1 Beams von SGM Light.

Die Centennial Concert Hall im kanadischen Winnipeg verfügt über ein Fassungsvermögen von über 2.300 Besuchern und seit neuestem auch über ein auf LED-Technik basierendes ArcSystem-Beleuchtungssystem von ETC.

 

„Unsere gesamte Bühnenlicht-Ausstattung kommt von ETC“, erläutert Vince Paulich, Facility Supervisor in der Centennial Hall. „Wir arbeiten mit Eos-Pulten und Source-Four-PAR-Scheinwerfern.“

 

Im früheren Beleuchtungssystem der Konzerthalle habe Paulich bestimmte Bereiche nicht isolieren können, wenn er einen Dimmer hochgefahren habe. „Jetzt“, sagt er, „kann ich jedes Licht in der Anlage individuell ansprechen.“

 

Vor allem, wenn die Centennial Concert Hall nicht ausverkauft ist. „Bei manchen Shows ist nur der Hauptrang geöffnet, die Balkone oder andere Bereiche bleiben für die Besucher geschlossen. Jetzt kann ich diese ungenutzten Bereiche im Dunkeln lassen.“

 

Um von mehr Stellen aus auf die Lichtsteuerung zugreifen zu können, erhöhte das Team um Vince Paulich und Denis Crymble (Beleuchter in der Centennial Hall) die Anzahl der Paradigm-Touchpanels.

Chauvet LED fixtures installed at Sakiai Culture House

Chauvet LED fixtures installed at Sakiai Culture House

At Sakiai Culture House, located in the southwestern region of Lithuania, a new lighting system designed and installed by Scenos Techninis Servisas (STS) of Vilnius, Lithuania, features a collection of Chauvet Professional LED fixtures.

 

Installed as part of a renovation of the 60-year old building, the new system features six Ovation E-260WW ellipsoidal fixtures, four Ovation B-195FC batten units, ten Maverick MK2 Spots and fifteen Maverick MK2 Washes.

 

STS positioned the Ovation fixtures from the stage’s lattice of trussing towers above and to the side of the stage. Although it was vital for the venue to retain the classic look of their old tungsten par cans, its management nevertheless utilized LED technology in order to minimize energy costs and improve reliability.

 

Among the many flexible features of the venue is its adjustable trussing system, which gives technicians the ability to raise and lower all four rows of truss for a number of production requirements.

Titan Fitness - an independently owned fitness studio in Coogee, a coastal suburb of NSW, Australia - is a 4-floor facility that has been open since 2009.

 

Its Spin Studio has recently seen the installation of 24 x Astera AX1 Pixel Tubes in a new LED lighting installation. These were supplied to installers Aeromic by Astera’s Australian distributor, ULA Group.

 

Two Pixel Tubes are mounted vertically in each corner of the room, with four rows of four tubes rigged in the ceiling above all the spin machines. All the tubes are controlled via an Art7 AsteraBox CRMX interface and an iPad running the Astera App.

 

A range of different sequences specifically for Titan Fitness have been programmed including walk in, warm up, cool down and high energy states which can be activated, changed and controlled in the app.

 

Some of the sequences are sound-to-light triggered. The Astera Art7 interface box listens for 32 discrete frequencies in the music, so when sound-to-light is applied it produces a dynamic effect.

Saskatchewan’s Casino Regina invests in Robert Juliat Oz followspots

When the Casino Regina Show Lounge wanted to replace some of its heavily-used followspots, Christie Lites Sales, a Saskatchewan dealer for Robert Juliat lighting fixtures, suggested a pair of Oz 600W LED followspots for the entertainment venue. “We wanted a direct replacement for the Robert Juliat Korrigan followspots we had previously, so Oz was the best option,” says Bruce Dumba, lighting director at the Casino Regina Show Lounge.

 

Casino Regina is owned and operated by SaskGaming, and is located in Regina’s Union Station building. The 800-seat Show Lounge hosts all types of entertainment: singers, bands, comedians, artist tributes, banquets, and is looked after by Ashley Seidler, manager of entertainment at Casino Regina.

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.

‘Le Premier Royaume’ at Puy du Fou, a walk-through show at the popular attraction in the Vendée region, is being illuminated by Maxime Chotard’s lighting that features a collection of 66 Chauvet Professional fixtures.

 

Chotard positioned his fixtures through the exhibit’s ten interconnected rooms. The lighting rig includes seven Ovation E-910FC ellipsoidals, 13 Colorado Batten 72X units, 21 Colorado 2 Solo washes, 22 Ovation B-565FC battens, two Ovation E-260WW fixtures and one Ovation F-915FC Fresnel.

 

“Throughout this show, I tried as naturally as possible to remove the barrier between the stage and the spectator through light,” Chotard explains. “Today in this show there are no visual boundaries between the very rich scenery, the actors and our visitors. Each scene has its own visual adventure, its own directions of light.”

 

“The IP index for the Colorado 2 Solo was a critical feature, since ‘Premier Royaume’ has many water effects,” he adds. “It was therefore necessary for me to have an adequate IP index depending on the rooms.”

ASC stattet Activity-Bereich der „AidaNova“ aus

Bei der Gestaltung des Activity-Bereiches „Four Elements“ auf dem Kreuzfahrtschiff „AidaNova“ standen die Elemente Wasser, Luft, Erde und Feuer Pate. Das Areal erstreckt sich über die Decks 16 und 17 und ist durch ein Glasdach überdeckt.

 

Amptown System Company (ASC) achtete bei der Licht- und Beschallungstechnik darauf, dass die Integration von Medientechnik visuell mit dem Ambiente verschmilzt und die technischen Funktionen aufgrund der hohen Luftfeuchtigkeit nicht beeinträchtigt werden.

 

Die im Raum installierten Scheinwerfer - darunter Martin Exterior Wash 210 und SGM-G-1-Beam-Moving-Heads - entfalten ihre Wirkung insbesondere zur Nachtzeit. Die Scheinwerfer sind gemäß Schutzklasse IP65 gegen Staub und Strahlwasser aus beliebigen Winkeln geschützt.

 

Alle Lichter werden über eine zentral im Broadcast Center (BCC) untergebrachte GrandMA3-Replay-Unit von MA Lighting gesteuert. Unterschiedliche Lichtinstallationen der „AidaNova“ lassen sich vom BCC aus synchronisiert betreiben. Eine lokale Steuerung der Scheinwerfer direkt im „Four Elements“-Bereich ist ebenfalls möglich, wird jedoch nur bei besonderen Gelegenheiten initiiert.

 

Einen Blickfang stellt eine bezüglich ihrer Spezifikation für den Außeneinsatz geeignete Absen-XD10-LED-Wand dar. Sie ist zwölf Quadratmeter groß und zeigt tagsüber allgemeine Hinweise zum Programm an Bord. Gegen Abend können die Gäste diesen Bereich als Outdoor-Kino nutzen. Ein kleiner Dancefloor ist ebenfalls Bestandteil des „Four Elements“ und wird unter anderem als Kinder-Disco eingesetzt.

 

Die im „Four Elements“ installierten Lautsprecher von D&B Audiotechnik sind als seewasserresistente SWR-Versionen gegen Salzwasser geschützt, was gleichermaßen für die Line-Arrays - bestehend aus Yi-8- und Yi-12-Komponenten mit B22-Subwoofern - wie auch für die E8- und E12-Punktschallquellen-Lautsprecher gilt. Verstärkt werden die Line-Arrays von vier D&B-30D-Installationsendstufen.

 

Die Lautsprechergehäuse wurden mit unterschiedlichen RAL/NCS-Lackierungen verbaut. „Die Gehäuse werden beim Hersteller mit einer UV-beständigen Oberflächenlackierung behandelt“, erklärt Malte Polli-Holstein, ASC Vice President Maritime Business. „Das Research-&-Development-Team von D&B Audiotechnik hat auch die Leimholzschnittkanten der Gehäuse mit Öl gegen ein mögliches Aufquellen versiegelt. Alle Metallteile an den Lautsprechern, egal ob Rigging-Points, Frontgitter, Anschlussplatten, Schrauben etc., sind aus seewasserfestem V4A-Edelstahl produziert. Nicht nur die Medientechnik ist besonders geschützt, auch das Line-Array-Sonder-Rigging ist aus rostfreiem V4A-Stahl gefertigt, um einer möglichen Korrosion vorzubeugen.“

 

„Zwischen den Frontgittern und dem Akustikschaum der Lautsprecherkomponenten hat D&B Audiotechnik Meshgitter aus Edelstahl eingebaut - diese verhindern mittels einer zusätzlichen, wasserabweisenden Spezialbehandlung das Eindringen von Spritzwasser“, so Polli-Holstein weiter. „Befestigungslösungen aus dem normalen Portfolio der Hersteller werden an Bord von ‘AidaNova’ in der Regel nicht verwendet, da sie den erhöhten Sicherheitsanforderungen auf einem Kreuzfahrtschiff meist nicht vollständig gerecht werden können.“

Minneapolis Convention Center adds Ayrton Bora-S fixtures to main auditorium

Minneapolis Convention Center adds Ayrton Bora-S fixtures to main auditorium

The Minneapolis Convention Center has completed another phase in its continuing technology upgrade adding Ayrton Bora-S wash luminaires to the main auditorium. “We replaced our old wash units with a greater number of Bora-S and kicked up the rig a couple of notches,” says the Center’s Technology Coordinator, John Eberlein.

 

ACT Lighting, Inc., Ayrton’s exclusive distributor for North America, had demo’d an assortment of fixtures for Eberlein and hinted that Ayrton had something new coming soon.  “We decided to wait and see Ayrton’s new light, and I’m glad we did,” he says. The Bora-S fixtures were provided to the Minneapolis Convention Center by Gopher Stage Lighting of Minneapolis.

Erweiterung des Nexus-Netzes bei Radio Kuwait

Erweiterung des Nexus-Netzes bei Radio Kuwait

Stage Tec hat ein Nexus-Netz bei Radio Kuwait erweitert. Bereits Ende 2004 ging die erste große Nexus-Vernetzung des mittleren Ostens im Hauptschaltraum von Radio Kuwait in Betrieb. Ein zentraler Nexus-Star-Router und zwanzig sternförmig angebundene Basisgeräte sind für die gesamte Audiosignalverteilung im Radiosender zuständig. Jetzt wurden zahlreiche Nexus-Schnittstellen aktualisiert und erweitert.

 

So wurde erstmals mit den Dante/AES67-Karten ein IP-Format geliefert, um Produktionsstätten bei Radio Kuwait miteinander zu verbinden. Der Radiosender erhielt außerdem Nexus Monitor Control - ein GUI, das erlaubt, beliebige Signale in Nexus-Netzen ohne Mischpult abzuhören.

 

Ergänzt wurde das Projekt durch ein Update der gesamten Anlage, das diverse neue Features ermöglicht, wie beispielsweise die Erweiterung des Nexus-Netzes auf 63 Basisgeräte mit bis zu 64.000 I/Os.

 

Stage Tec lieferte auch drei neue Nexus-Basisgeräte mit zahlreichen Schnittstellen, die im Hauptschaltraum und in zwei Musikstudios eingebaut wurden. In das Nexus-Netzwerk sind eine On-Air- und zwei Auratus-Konsolen von Stage Tec eingebunden.

St. Louis Municipal Opera Theatre’s (“The Muny”) new LED lighting system features over 700 Chauvet Professional fixtures supplied and installed by Bandit Lites. In addition to the IP rated LED lighting, the new stage system includes one turntable, three tracks, five lifts for moving sets and actors, LED screens, and a protected orchestra pit.

 

Rob Denton, Lighting Designer at the 11,000-seat venue, was instrumental in the lighting upgrade and worked with Bandit Lites on its execution. He notes that the theater’s main goal was to create an LED rig that would be more flexible and energy efficient. “The new rig allows us to have a wider breath of looks than before, and the ability to unify our lighting with the Chauvet Professional F4 IP LED video walls,” he says.

 

Playing a key role in the new lighting rig are its 310 Ovation E-910FC IP color-mixing indoor/outdoor ellipsoidal units, 130 Ovation E-260WW IP warm white fixtures, and 205 Colorado 3 Solo pieces. Many of these fixtures are hung on a 183-foot span that runs over the downstage deck. From this position they provide front light, texture across the stage, and scenic element lighting.

 

Additionally, the Ovation fixtures along with a small number of the Colorado 3 units are positioned in a variety of side positions for cross lighting and template coverage. Ovation E-260WW and Colorado 3 Solo units are also flown on truss over the video wall and are used for downstage and full stage back lighting.

 

The backwall structure of the stage is uplit with 22 Colorado Solo Batten fixture, while Colorado 3 Solo  units provide downlighting. Adding another new dimension to The Muny stage are the massive back video wall and two side walls that are made with 238 F4 LED panels.
