LIGHT IT UP – DAY & NIGHT
Twelve Acme CETUS IP65 rated moving lights have been used to provide the main lighting element for the venue, lighting up the sky with powerful beams at night and helping to create atmosphere around the pool and dancefloor. Dotted around the venue are 32 Acme StagePAR Colour IP66 rated static fixtures, used to highlight the décor of the venue during both day and night. “There are two DJpower CO2 jets, five fog machines, and six flame machines,” reports Nathan. These are being used for special effects during choreographed shows and DJ performances, as well as being fired up for special occasions and celebrations happening at the venue.
“We chose VuePix Infiled LED panels for all of the screens within the venue because of their outdoor reliability and local support from distributors ULA Group,” states Nathan Wright. “And they have performed flawlessly!” We’ve got a NovaStar H-2 processor that’s dealing with all the splicing and the video processing aspects. But once again, turn it on, do a configuration and ‘job done’.”
“We have a long relationship with the ULA team and a great experience with VuePix product reliability and support. Considerations like availability of parts and adherence to warranty are absolutely critical for a venue of this type,” he confirmed. “Because if we have downtime, that really has a massive impact on the way people perceive a venue and its reputation. You have to select brands that provide you with confidence that we could actually continue to operate in any eventuality. For a venue like this, easy access to technical and product support is the most important thing.”
Cali Beach is already pumping, with national and international resident DJs and artists hitting the stage with sizzling tunes. “Artesian Hospitality are loving it,” concludes Nathan.
To everyone in Australia that’s looking for an escape I’d say come relax, eat, drink, play and embrace life at Cali Beach,” said Matthew Keegan.
“This is exactly what Surfers Paradise and our city needs. I applaud the team behind this development as it will be a beacon for locals and visitors. I look forward to seeing the evolution of Cali Beach into one of those must-visit destinations year-round”, comments Tom Tate, Mayor at City of Gold Coast.
So fire up and make your way to the Gold Coast’s hottest new destination. Soak up the expansive ocean views, let the sweet DJ tunes wash over you and know that this is The Place To Be this summer.
