Technology leader LumenRadio's award winning CRMX RDM wireless system was recently used to provide extra excitement at a sold-out international Magners League rugby game at Dublin's newly rebuilt Aviva Stadium. Home of the Republic of Ireland national Rugby Union and Football teams, the state-of-the-art stadium is the only facility in the country with UEFA Elite classification. Also known as the Dublin Arena, it seats more than 50,000, and was refitted with the latest wireless broadcast and security systems before the doors reopened in May 2010.
Radio spectrum issues and interference have been hot topics in the British Isles for some time. When the idea of wireless controlled lighting effects was first introduced, the Aviva Stadium management was therefore apprehensive about adding yet another wireless system to the mix during a high profile event. LumenRadio's CRMX with its Automated Cognitive Coexistence was identified as the only wireless system that could coexist with all the other wireless systems present in the facility, and at the same time provide the level of performance and reliability required.
"The entire event went off without a hitch,” explains show manager Rob Jones at Gorilla Design, “and proved beyond any doubt that LumenRadio's technology excels in such demanding and crowded radio environments. The CRMX wireless RDM system was employed to control eight Syncrolite 7K Xenon fixtures and was used extensively during the show. The system's RDM functionality provided real-time monitoring of the system and contributed greatly to everybody's confidence in the setup. All the equipment was provided and supported by EQ Lighting in Dublin.”
