This summer, the first European installation of Emphasis was completed at the Royal Danish Theatre in Copenhagen as part of the venue's major technical upgrade.

The theater's Lighting Director Soren Nylin specified the technical details and ETC's dealer Bico Proffesionel A/S came up with the perfect solution. "We were looking to upgrade our existing control system, adding more functions and channels," said Nylin. "Having worked with WYSIWYG for a number of years, we were already very satisfied with the visualization tool, which has grown to become the industry standard."Royal Danish Theatre

"As the staff were already used to Expression and WYSIWYG, Emphasis was the next logical step, providing a seamless fusion between the two," said Soren Jorgensen of Bico. In addition to supplying the equipment, prior to the installation, Bico also provided the theater's staff with training on Emphasis.

Emphasis is a powerful and user-friendly control system, developed by ETC and Cast Lighting, to offer the most impressive drafting, visualizing and programming lighting control on the market. Revolutionizing the way lighting designers work, Emphasis is the only tool needed for the whole lighting process -- from concept, collaboration, pre-cueing, pre-production, programming and editing through to operation, archives and maintenance.

The Royal Danish Theatre is also using ETC's Expression Remote Focus Unit, ETCNet2 Ethernet system with ETCNet2 DMX Nodes and a Video Node, WYSILink, Unison architectural control system and Sensor dimming, in addition to a large selection of Source Fours.
