    Robin Hood Costume with QolorFLEX Dimmers   QolorFLEX SHoW DMX Neo 4x2.5A Dimmers at the IIDA 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.

      QolorFLEX SHoW DMX Neo 4x2.5A Dimmers in Evita at New York City Center

    As a leading center for dance and musical theatre in NYC, New York City Center puts on a wide range of productions annually, some of which call for certain lighting and scenic elements that can be re-purposed into following shows. The creative team behind Evita at NYCC planned to use five already purchased reels of QolorFLEX LED Tape, RGB+Natural White from a previous production to line five archways in the set design. They would also require additional reels of LED tape for other scenic elements, and would need them to be binned to match the exact lighting of the existing LED tape.

    QolorFLEX SHoW DMX Neo 4x2.5A Dimmers at Coolidge Middle School   QolorFLEX SHoW DMX Neo 4x2.5A Dimmers in Freaky Friday Presented by Coolidge Middle School in Reading, Massachusetts

    The creative team for a production of Freaky Friday was looking for a way to create 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.

    The hourglass was created in two sections, top and bottom, each controlled by its own concealed QolorFLEX SHoW DMX Neo 4x2.5A Dimmer and Mean Well Power Supply. The team used preexisting SHoW Baby units to control the dimmers wirelessly. This allowed the actors to separate the pieces on stage without any interruption to the effect.
