“It created a new spark and excitement,” Northeim said about the new design. “After seeing several of the existing shows, I realized we needed just as much lighting bang and visual pop from the lighting system as we get from the many loud and bright experiments that end with explosions or flame effects.”
It took just a few CHAUVET® fixtures to transform the space. SlimPARâ„¢ PRO RGBA units acted as the side and backlighting for an even stage wash. The units' range of colors helped differentiate the themed shows. Hidden behind the large center stage were COLORrailâ„¢ fixtures that brought the background to life. The fixtures provided a color-changing backdrop that gave an animated look to the gear-shaped props used throughout the set.
“SlimPARâ„¢ PRO RGBA and COLORrailâ„¢ fixtures provided the best bang for the buck,” Northeim said. “Everybody was very happy with the capabilities of the fixtures.”
Northeim said the Gadgets Live installation led to a new test project at the museum using variable white LEDs. The museum also decided to use more CHAUVET® gear for their rental facility used for different events, such as weddings and parties.
