It was the first time he had used this particular product, but having used Anolis in his work for about 12 years, he was fully confident that the product met all the criteria of reliability and quality engineering, and knew that he would receive excellent back up and support from Anolis’ Australian distributor, The ULA Group.
Another primary reason to go with Anolis was brightness. It needed to be visible from afar and especially from the magnificent view of downtown and Elizabeth Quay from Kings Park on the mount opposite.
The ArcDots are fixed to a plate under both edges of the double-sided acrylic cover of the tubes which snake all around the space, and the two sides are independently controlled for additional dynamics.
The ArcDot power supplies are in eight different locations spread around the Quay all linked via a fibre network back to the e:Cue Light Engine controller which is integrated to the site wide system lighting controller, allowing The Artist’s Edge to change colour together with lighting on the trees, foliage, bridge, walkways, street lights and elsewhere. There are currently over 4000 sources in the complete lighting scheme.
