Martin MAC Quantum Profiles on Campus
Posted on Wednesday, March 9th, 2016
“I think we at CLS, along with Show Technology’s support, exceeded our clients’ expectations,” remarked Trevor Lloyd, managing director at CLS.
At the start of the project, Trevor turned to Paul Nicolaou for advice and he recommended the Quantums. This extremely bright LED profile fixture combines top-quality white light with a fast, smooth CMY colour mixing system and crisp gobo projection on surfaces as well as mid-air.
“It soon became apparent that they would be perfect for the job,” said Trevor. “Deakin has upgraded their largest lecture theatre installing new acoustic panelled walls, seating, the latest LED lighting, EAW line array, high spec cameras and projectors. To be able to light the lecturer wherever they may be standing, we chose five Quantum profiles. Three are used for front lighting and two for backlight.”
An AMX system controls cameras, projectors, sound, house lighting and stage lighting. Lighting scenes were first programmed and stored on a PC using Martin’s M-PC 2U/M-DMX which can then be triggered by the AMX system via remote login. Show Technology’s Branden Butler programmed the initial library of scenes.
CLS also installed twelve ShowPro Quad Colour LED PARs for wash lighting. Although colour and pattern projection were not essential, Trevor is sure they will be used to add interest and mood creation for future presentations.
