Multi purpose event location Eskapade in Kapellen recently invested in a brand new audio and lighting system.
Eskapade is a multi functional event venue, located in Kapellen near Antwerp.
The venue is primarily used as a location for parties, performances and local events and has a flexible character, meaning it's equally suitable to host a presentation, a concert, or a party with a DJ.
With this vision in mind, the Community of Kapellen's Department of Youth, opted to upgrade their entire sound and lighting system and called upon Visual Productions' Belgium distrbutor, FACE for the job.
Jeroen Willems - FACE Account manager explains: "We wanted to keep the flexibility of the venue while providing them with a great sounding system and a lighting solution which is very straightforward to operate but still powerful enough to create an attractive visual experience. With the new setup we've successfully done just that.
Visually we expanded the existing lighting system, to created a more immersive experience; Both the stage and DJ Booth are brought to life by 6 Oxo 18MB LED washes.
The combination of the existing and new fixtures allow operators to create dynamic colour effects and vary between the respectively wide and narrow beams of the fixtures.
The light setup is plugged into a new Oxo DMX splitter and for control we run Visual Production's Cuelux on a touch computer.
Cuelux has a super friendly interface, so basic users can select presets to instantly change the room's look and feel, while more advanced operators still have the freedom to create dynamic visual experiences.
Although we've swapped the venue's mobile rig, for a fixed installation, we were able to maintain the room's flexible character.
They can continue to host events of various sizes, whether it's a party, presentation, or live performance. We look forward to seeing some great events there."

MSD is a Dutch manufacturer of key pharmaceuticals, based in Oss in the south of the Netherlands. Earlier this year MSD had an artwork presented to them in honour of their contribution to the pharmaceutical industry with the development of the contraceptive pill. The artwork resembles a packet of contraceptive pills and is controlled by a CueCore.
The artwork was designed by Dutch artist Sjef Hoogstede. The design company Ontwerpbureau Artron were responsible for the realisation of the artwork. They commissioned Dutch distributor, Full AVL to supply and program the lighting control. The CueCore was deployed utilising the internal clock and calendar to mimic the "female cycle" seen in a packet of contraceptive pills. Each day another pill is removed / unlit. In addition to the "monthly cycle", on festive days themed lighting is recalled, such as for Liberation day the pills are programmed with a red, white and blue animation.
Visual Productions will be closed for the summer from Monday 27 July. Normal service resumes on Monday 10 August.
During this time support will be via the forum only and may have a slight delay. We hope that this does not cause you too much inconvenience.
Support should also be available to you from where you purchased our products; the majority of our distributors remain open during this period.
Thank you for your support and business and we wish you a fun, warm, relaxing and of course busy summer!
Greetings Zoe, Maarten, Jurrien, Julien, Maarten & Thijs

The Visual Productions' Hungarian distributor Colossal has recently been involved in two beautiful lighting installations using the CueCore.
The first installation was for the restaurant called Prime Steak and Wine in Budapest. The CueCore is at the heart of the DMX network. In terms of lighting, the CueCore controls all the ambient lighting, the LED fixtures, the RBG colouring of 2 columns. The CueCore is also used to control the heating system on the terrace and the magnetic lock of the entrance door.
The CueCore has been programmed by Csaba Csanadi. He utilizes many of the features of the CueCore allowing for great flexibility but little work for the client . Says Csanadi,“There’s a slow transition between day and night light mode as well. It is scheduled to start 2 hours before sunset and nobody can notice it.”
There are a number of pre programmed scenes for events as well. For example the waiters can choose zones where they can activate a birthday show and the lighting changes to illuminate and highlight that zone. These scenes can be recalled and selected via an iPad user interface. The OSC protocol connects the CueCore to an iPad with TouchOSC App installed.
The CueCore is truly an important device in the restaurant. The owners were so impressed by the versatile and beautiful lighting that they asked Csanadi to install and program the lighting in their new restaurant “Fire”. Again by utilizing the CueCore Csanadi has delivered a highly creative and functional solution for his customer.
