The Dutch city Tilburg harbors its annual funfair that with 250 attractions and an estimated one million visitors is one of the largest of its kind. The fair has different themes for most days. The Tuesday featured “Tilburg @ Night”; an event that saw all public street lighting in the city centre being turned off, leaving the fair to be lit only by its own atmospheric lighting. Local sound & light supplier First Impression delivered a special eye catcher during this night. They positioned 10 pieces of 7000W Xenon Biglites throughout the city center, each controlled by a Visual Productions’ Elite.
The Dutch Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management selected VisualDMX and Canvix for the lighting control in the newly built multi-purpose seminar and presentation facility.
The venue (called "Lef Future Center") is housed in the office building of the department of Public Works and Water Management (Rijkswaterstaat) in Utrecht. Electrical installer Imtech (10.000+ employees) commissioned the lighting equipment including:
- 3x VisualDMX system
- 1x Canvix system
- 5x VisualTouch system (via Wifi)
- 1x 12-universes Art-Net dongle
- 10x Frontier
- 1x DMX Input
- 10x GPO
- 3x GPI
- 3x Din Rail DMX Splitter
- 14x DMX to Dali interface
In total, the Visual Productions' system is controlling:
- approx. 1600x Lagotronics DecaLED® Dot DMX
- 24x Martin Mac250 Wash/Entour
- approx. 400x XAL Dali spots
- Philips fluorecent lighting systems
- motorized curtains
Belgium installation company, RGB-LED Lightin’ Art was recently asked to create an eye-catching art installation for the building façade of law firm Oostvogels Pfister Feyten in Luxembourg. The building is located on one of the main through roads near Luxembourg City.
The light installation was a series of custom-made LED strips housed within 36 frosted glass balls. The system runs live via a computer running Canvix, with back-up images stored in an Elite. Oostvogels wanted their staff to be able to change the Matrix at will and to have the standalone Elite system available for when the offices were unmanned for longer periods of time.
Perhaps our favourite tradeshow; meeting many new users and distributors certainly made Prolight+Sound in Frankfurt a great week.
Thank you all for visiting, we hope to meet you again in 2009.
The biennial Dutch tradeshow Vakbeurs Theatertechniek offered Visual Productions the perfect stage for presenting its lighting control solutions to the Dutch stage and entertainment lighting market.
It was our company’s second time as exhibitor at this show, this year our emphasis was on the brand new Frontier fool-proof replay unit. Furthermore we offered the Dutch public a real premiere: the introduction of the Din Rail DMX Splitter; a very practical device especially for the installation market.
