Citipointe Christmas Concert with SGM and Madrix

Posted on Thursday, February 9th, 2017

Citipointe Christmas Concert is one of Brisbane’s biggest carol events of the Christmas calendar. More than 5,000 people attended the Christmas spectacular in 2016, bringing some of Australia’s finest performers to the stage.

Ash Neuendorf from High Impact Lighting was selected as Lighting Designer and Operator for the event, selecting a combination of SGM LB100 and Madrix control to the stage design.

“Citipointe Christmas Concert 2016 included 8 x SGM TLD612 art-net drivers and approximately 200 x SGM LB100 (1,400 balls) to create a canopy in the roof above the stage.  As the stage is over 15m wide the LB100’s are an awesome way to create not only a great effect but help to fill out the large stage working with the other lighting and LED screen to complete the look.” said Ash.

The LB100 LED system was controlled from Ash’s operating position by Madrix control software. Being integrated to the MA platform for this job, Ash could trigger any of the pre-programmed scenes or effects in Madrix from the lighting console.

Ash continues to comment about his success with Madrix. “Since purchasing a Madrix license for a recent tour, I have been using it on every show to process high volumes of LED channels.  I have been extremely impressed with it’s reliability and how Madrix is able to map and output art-net events in different IP ranges seamlessly. Another key feature which I have enjoyed using is the effect generator; instead of just playing back imported video files, you are able to select a specific effect and then manipulate the parameters for the setup you are using. This can create some extremely dynamic looks when using LED to fill out the stage around conventional and moving lights.”
