Melbourne Recital Centre enhance the Salon with RUSH MH6

Posted on Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

Jasja van Andel, Technical & Asset Manager at Melbourne Recital Centre, has enjoyed the extra flexibility that their six new Martin RUSH MH6 fixtures has given the venue.

The venue has a fixed permanent lighting rig installed in the Salon which recently was upgraded to almost all LED. In order to add to the diversity of the room, some free range lighting was called for!

“We wanted some moving heads that we could place anywhere on the floor or add to the rig,” said Jasja. “Due to its small size and versatility, the RUSH MH6 allows us a different view point and adds depth to the performance area instead of just lighting from above. We can stick them behind the stage to light up the back walls, or scatter them around the floor.”

The room is not big, holding up to 140 people, so the fixture needed to be small as well as lightweight. Jasja has been impressed by the performance of the MH6; their versatility, size and easy programming make them an ideal fixture to use.

“They’re great for last minute additions to the lighting,” he added. “You do your event with your flown rig and then ask yourself: “how can we make this even better?”  It’s easy to add some of the RUSH MH6 fixtures and enhance the overall concert experience.”

The RUSH MH6 Wash offers a fully pre-mixed colour system from 12 x 10 W RGBW LEDs with a spectacular 10°–60° zoom. It also offers full electronic dimming, strobe effects and temperature-controlled fan cooling for quiet operation.
