“The operators in the Club love the ACME DotLine 360 LED battens,” added Darren. “They’re quite cool because their zoom works in two halves in two different segments, so you can get some great effects out of them especially in the air.”
Providing action over the dancefloor are ACME XA-400 spot movers and ACME CM-300ZR-II washes hung from a large square truss grid.
A pair of MDG ATME Hazers, one either side of the stage, supply atmosphere with Darren saying the second one is more for redundancy. They are run at only 10% yet still easily fill the venue. “We tend to always install two into clubs because sooner or later someone will spill a drink in one midway through a gig!” laughed Darren. “Or the bar staff are filling it up in the dark and pour fluid all over the machine!”
Control is via a ChamSys MagicQ MaxiWing and a Power Mac running ChamSys MagicQ and ArKaos Media Master Pro Software as well as a pair of HP E230t 23” touch screen monitors. ACME EN28 Art-Net DMX Converters enable 14 universes of DMX to be utilised in the venue, where everything is running in full load.
“We have a number of club installs that we have done where we have video and we usually install ArKaos along with ChamSys,” explained Darren. “The integration between the two works really well, in fact I’d say ArKaos works better with ChamSys than anything else. Together, they make pixel mapping very simple.”
Elite also supplied ChainMaster one tonne hoists and ChainMaster control.
