Showman Fabricators Uses SHoW DMX Dimmers at
Fabricators needed to build a lot of lightboxes for CNBC Studio using RGBA
LED tape – here's how they did it using SHoW DMX Three Channel
spoke with Grigor Grigorov at Showman Fabricators
http://www.showfab.com/ about their
recent CNBC Studio project :
CTI: Who was involved in the project?:
designer was John Casey, the lighting designer was Bruce Ferri, and Showman’s
project manager was Justin Kurtz.
CTI: Were there specific design, budget, time, or physical
constraints that you had to work within?
For us, the challenge was the quantity of equipment. This was a
relatively large-scale use of City Theatrical SHoW DMX dimmers for us – about
70 dimmers were installed into the studio.
CTI: Which City Theatrical products or services did you use,
and why did you decide on them?
We used the SHoW DMX dimmer for all LED control in both single and
triple dimmer personalities. We used SHoW DMX low-voltage dimmers since we
have had excellent results using them in the past.
CTI: Did you do any preliminary testing?
We fully assembled the scenery and set electrics in the shop prior to
installation in the studio.
CTI: What was your overall experience in working with
City Theatrical on your production?
As always, it was a pleasure to work with City Theatrical on this
project! They were very responsive to the few issues that came up.
CTI: Would you have done anything differently in
In hindsight, we would have taken a modular approach to our use of
the SHoW DMX units, rather than tailoring them to their lightbox area. Since
the completion of this project, we’ve done just that.
