Lighting projects: Tryka, Avolites and James Thomas
"Previous lighting systems had perished in such environment, so we needed to be certain we were installing something that lasted," said Gordon Smith, Head of Technical Operations at the Caves,
Gordon Smith enthuses: "The LED lighting enhances the formation of the stalactites and stalagmites, enabling visitors to see the natural formation of the caves clearly. It is also cost effective and maintenance is simple when required. The lighting design has been well received by the public and the colour options offer a great deal of flexibility [for a variety of different events]."
Wireless solution for Trafford Centre
Avolites Ltd and dAFTdATA Ltd have supplied KD Decoratives with a bespoke wireless solution based on the Avolites eDMX system, to control the Festive Lights installation at the Trafford Centre in Manchester, UK.
A series of 30 "drop poles" are suspended from the Centre’s glass roof void, each pole mounted with between 5 and 15 LED fixtures.
A dAFTdATA HILDA opencase card with external antenna is mounted at the top of each pole. This handles the network selection, monitoring and data processing wirelessly to over 200 LED controllers, so the complete LED system is thus controlled - wirelessly - from one central location.
KD Decorative's Michael Gims says, "The ability to integrate the wireless DMX control element with the building's existing wired and wireless Ethernet systems has resulted in massive savings in installation cost and time”.
PixelEights rock at Levi’s® Flagship Store
JTE’s new PixelEights are rocking the streets of London as part of an exciting new window display at the Levi’s® Flagship Store in Regent Street.
Communications agency Logistik created and installed a compelling window concept, recreating the atmosphere and excitement of the Barfly venue in Camden.
Logistik’s project director, Attila Keskin explains: “I wanted to add some pizzazz to the generic par rig – something that would really wow the people in the street! The PixelEights were recommended by PRG and as I had used PixelLine 1044s in the windows last year – I was confident the fixtures would provide another dimension to the display. I am very happy with the result, loads of light is projected into the street and the effects really attract people to look in the window.”
All the lighting was supplied by PRG Europe London.
