DTS at Edith Cowan University

Posted on Thursday, February 4th, 2010

During the recent refit of the TV Studio at Edith Cowan University in the Perth suburb of Mt Lawley, John Culverhouse of Ashton Admor was asked to put forward a recommendation and solution for the studio. Wanting to use the latest technology he looked to the Perth Hills SVL office for advice on DTS led fixtures and what would be the most suitable solution to be used for the cyclorama lighting.

The DTS Fos33 led fixtures were then chosen and demonstrated to the studio manager who gave them the stamp of approval.

The DTS Fos33 led fixtures offered a number of benefits over the traditional the cyclorama using incandescent lights and this appealed to the studio. The FOS bars offered the ability to have a full range of colours controlled via DMX. This meant no more gels and gels changes offering a saving in labour costs and turnaround time for the studio. Other significant benefits included the low heat emissions, low power consumption reducing the energy consumption of the studio.

A total of five banks of DTS FOS 33’s were supplied and installed with each bank consisting of a wide, medium and narrow lens. This ensured a complete even coverage over the Cyc. Also supplied were five FOS33 tri bracket and a DTS Z1 power supply.

“The result is very pleasing” said John, “I am really impressed with the coverage and ease of use of the FOS 33’s. The support of Hills SVL and Lighthouse Distribution has been great right through the complete process”.
