W-DMX and Hex36 at Royal Adelaide Show.
Posted on Monday, September 26th, 2016
Originally intended as “traffic lights” to start and stop the Drone racing, the Hex36 ended up being integrated into the rest of the show for ute racing, effects lighting and to engage the audience.
“The sheer brightness of the fixtures more than exceeded our expectations,” commented Ashley Gabriel, Staging Connections’ Regional General Manager. “Sixteen of them filled the main arena even if the stadium lights were turned off! The fixtures also had to withstand the Adelaide elements during the two week period they were in position facing high winds and driving rain as well as some warm sunny days – none of which affected the running or reliability of the Hex’s.”
Also making their debut were Staging Connections’ new Wireless Solutions BlackBox F-1 wireless DMX transceivers and BlackBox R-512 wireless DMX receivers with high gain aerials to control the fixtures.
“The DMX was solid even with 20,000 people in the arena and the general RF in the area too. We are very happy with the fixtures and equipment supplied.”
