Medialon Supports New De Kunstlinie Theater With Stage Management System

Almere TheaterRapenburg Plaza has supplied the new De Kunstlinie theater in Almere, the Netherlands with a fully-controlled theater stage-management system controlled by Medialon Manager. Amsterdam-based Rapenburg Plaza designed and integrated the system into the building, which was finished last December after two-and-a-half years of construction. The architecturally-stunning theater is situated in the city center on the shores of Weerwater lake.

Medialon Manager software is used on four servers to control all of De Kunstlinie‘s technical controls; Medialon was also used to build the GUI of all the theater‘s technical controls.

The biggest challenge for Rapenburg Plaza in this project was dealing with various fiber networks and V-LANs to share the network with lights (ACN), sound (Cobranet), video (Video over LAN) and the Medialon Manager show control.

The show control system is run and controlled by Medialon Manager V4 and controls twelve KISS Box I/O interfaces, two DMX interfaces, four MIDI interfaces, two N-port servers, three UPS systems, an ETC Congo system, an audio system and an e:cue system.

The project takes advantage of Medialon’s Any Protocol capability, allowing the system to adapt to any communication protocol, and IP Control, natively supported by Medialon Manager, a must to integrate Kiss boxes with then new lighting protocol, ACN.

Integrator Rapenburg Plaza (formerly known as Ground Zero) has previously been responsible for show control/stage management systems for the Stadsteater in Göteborg (Sweden), and theaters and operas in The Netherlands and Scandinavia.
