The main concert hall in 'De Doelen' in Rotterdam (NL) underwent a major refurbishment that included a brand new lighting rig and control system. VisualDMX has been selected for controlling the house lights, stage lighting and LED fixtures throughout the hall. Key to this installation was the use of VisualTouch to allow stage staff to operate the lights in a user-friendly fashion, letting them choose from various predefined presets, whilst the house technicians can still access a more detailed set of controls.
The control system uses two Duple units connected to a small form factor PC running VisualDMX 24/7. Two separate touch screen computers run the VisualTouch software for remote controlling VisualDMX via the network.
The VisualDMX system was supplied by Controllux Lichttechniek.
Light artist Tamar Frank designed an installation 'Salacia' for the watertower in Middelkerke-Westende (Belgium). This installation was part of the temporary Beaufort03 art-project from 28-03-2009 to 04-10-2009, after which the local government decided to keep the installation in the tower. The lighting sequences play from an Elite. It controls 30 LED fixtures lighting the roof of the tower and 24 LED fixtures lighting the windows from inside.
It was the first time Visual Productions exhibited at the BPM 2009 show in Birmingham (UK) trade show for DJ's and other live performers.
It's a compact show, situated in only one the NEC's halls, but the exhibition was well organized and the attendance was impressive. During two days of non-stop product demonstrations and explaining the possibilities of Cuelux, we received great feedback from the UK market.
Lighting installer Turific supplied and programmed a VisualDMX system for the new Metrostation "Rotterdam Centraal" controlling more than 170 LED fixtures using 2 Frontiers. The installation makes use of the Action Editor in VisualDMX to automatically run scheduled actions and the Frontiers act as a backup system thanks to the stand-alone feature.
Visual Productions exhibited during the PLASA09 tradeshow in Earl's Court, London in September.
During the tradeshow we introduced the Cuelux software lighting controller to the British lighting industry. With Cuelux nominated for an Innovation award the response from visitors was very encouraging.
Thank you all for visiting us and we look forward to see you again next year at PLASA10.
