QolorFLEX Wireless DMX Dimming at IIDA's 21st Annual Fashion Show
Architect Dore + Whittier was submitting a design for
the Robin Hood look to the IIDA Fashion Show and
reached out to Port Lighting to find out how they could
best integrate lighting into the costume. The theme of
the show was “portals”, and the design used interior
design materials such as jute webbing and burlap from
flooring tiles, rockwool insulation, and laser cut pieces
of cork flooring. They sought a way to illuminate the
jacket and boots by integrating LED tape.
Port Lighting used their LED installation experience
from interior or theatrical projects to craft an LED and
dimming solution that could look beautiful while moving
and on camera. The lighting team oversaw the testing
of LEDs and dimmers to use with the outfit, and the
drapery department sewed and assembled the outfit.
The lighting team from Port Lighting used four QolorFLEX
wireless DMX Dimmers, one for each shinguard, one in the back
plate, and one placed in a custom-sewn pocket on the right side
of jacket, each controlled wirelessly with a single SHoW DMX
SHoW Baby 6 device with an external panel antenna mounted
backstage, giving the model free movement over the course of a
two-minute choreographed walk down the runway.
“We went with QolorFLEX wireless DMX
Dimmers because we needed something
that was small enough to integrate into the
costume, could be controlled wirelessly, and
had a strong dimming curve so it wouldn’t
flicker on camera. QolorFLEX delivered.”
- Ron Kuszmar, VP, Architectural and Theatrical Lighting, Port Lighting Systems
QolorFLEX LED Tape and QolorFLEX 24x3A Dimmers at Evita at New York City Center in New York, NY
“We chose QolorFLEX because of its
reliability, color quality, and affordability.
The good thing about QolorFLEX is that
it is tough and can be reused, so it is
part of our repertory equipment now, for
ongoing production use.”
- Mark Mongold, Director of Production, New York City Center
QolorFLEX NuNeon, RGB and Accessories, QolorFLEX RGB LED Tape, and QolorFLEX 4x2.5A Dimmers in Freaky Friday Presented by Coolidge Middle SchoolDrama Department in Reading, Massachusetts
With a SHoW Baby 6 wireless DMX system already in place,
the creative team for Freaky Friday was looking for a way to
create an urban Chicago setting using bright, color-changing
LED products that could be controlled wirelessly. With limited
transition time between scenes and a cast including 55 middle
schoolers and an additional 45 students working backstage,
the ideal solution would not only add dimension and visual
interest, but also require minimal relocation after installation,
and be simple and safe to use in a high traffic area.
The script called for an oversized hourglass that would be
“broken” in half on stage. This presented one of the largest
challenges of the show to the creative team: Designing a prop
that could create a magical effect, while using two separate
lighting and wireless DMX control systems.
City Theatrical’s QolorFLEX NuNeon was selected as
the lighting solution to outline the Chicago skyline that
spanned the 40-foot-wide stage. The skyline was set in
two layers, one at each wireless DMX controlled portal, to
add dimension with color-changing RGB LEDs that have
the look and brightness of traditional neon, but with easier
setup and wireless DMX dimming control
SHoW DMX Neo® Used To Help Transform Charlie And The Chocolate Factory Into A World Of Pure Imagination
The new musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, has been the most eagerly anticipated opening in London's West End this year. With direction by Sam Mendes, set and costumes by Mark Thompson, and Lighting Design by Paul Pyant, it is this summer's golden ticket.
City Theatrical worked closely with UK specialist lighting contractor Howard Eaton to realize the demanding wireless DMX requirements. As well as using SHoW DMX Neo® Transceivers and Receivers, the production marked the first use of the new D2 and D4 Dimmers.
SHoW DMX Neo® Used To Help The Eurovision 2015 Stage
The outfits have been designed to complement the circular main stage at the Wiener Stadthalle in Vienna, Austria, which is hosting this year's contest. The stage contains a 30m-wide LED screen and 300 metres of LED strips.
Electro Velvet have spoken of their delight at their costumes, saying: "The whole Eurovision experience has been illuminating for us, and we can't wait to literally light up on stage in front of the entire world - it's going to be electric!"
Guy Freeman, BBC's head of delegation of Eurovision, added: "The creative team behind the concept have been working exceptionally hard to ensure that the United Kingdom has a visually stunning and memorable performance on the night of the grand final, and we can't wait for the world to see it."
