165 Solaris LED Linear Fixtures Light Up Jason Aldean

In their first significant use on a major tour, 165 Solaris LED 16x1 fixtures have been performing flawlessly on Jason Aldean’s 2014 Burn It Down tour.

“I chose Solaris 16X1’s because, based on my experience with the amazing Solaris Flare, I knew they would perform well for my needs,” says Mike Swinford, the show’s Lighting and Production Designer. “We use them to outline the overhead trusses and also to outline the T-shaped thrust. They’re performing very well and ride on the trusses everyday so they do not have to be handled at every show. As with the Flare product, I am really impressed by their high output, plus linear effects when used with the MA console driving them. The 16X1’s individual LED “pixel” control is a real plus”. Production personnel include Tour LD Keith Hoagland and Lighting Programmer Mark Butts. The Solaris LED product is supplied to the tour by VER.

Hippotizer Rackoon Media Servers Enhance The Santa Fe Opera

In their quest for continuous improvement through the incorporation of new technology into their productions, The Santa Fe Opera, in collaboration with Barbizon Light of the Rockies, has acquired a selection of the very latest in video technology. Included are five Hippotizer Rackoon media servers, in addition to four Panasonic 20K projectors, and a remote Zookeeper PC for networked Rackoon control. The powerful and flexible new system will allow the Opera to enhance existing scenery with mapped images; or to quickly and easily experiment with and create virtual scenery.

The first show this season to use the new media server system was Carmen, followed by a double-bill, The Impressario and Le Rossignol, opening this month.
