Professional Lighting & Production - Spring 2018 - Page 17

Creativ Nation (formerly known as Le Diplomate) used SGM’s outdoor-rated P-2 and P-5 wash light fixtures for a crane illumina- tion project in Montreal. Creativ Nation’s client wanted to put promotional emphasis on a new 30-story retirement tower that was under construction. Their goal was to beautifully illuminate the crane structures while not hindering the construction process. The LED fixtures were the ideal solution because of their DMX technology, low power consumption, bright and powerful output, and ability to fit into the limited space. Place Bell, the new multi-purpose sports facility in suburban Montreal, has opened with an IP-centric infrastructure featuring a large com- plement of Luminex GigaCore switches. Place Bell’s 10,000-seat main arena is the home of the American Hockey League’s Laval Rockets and also hosts concerts and other entertainment events. The facility also houses a 2,500-seat rink with Olympic-size ice for professional figure skating and speed skating and a 500-seat rink for local ice hockey teams. All the live audio, video, broadcasting, and lighting in the venue runs over IP using Luminex switches. Solotech handled the integration of the arena’s video systems, LED screens, lighting, and intercoms, while TKNL was responsible for integrating all the audio and closed-circuit video. Trizart Alliance was the project consultant. Spring 2018 | 17
