Clay Paky Sharpys and grandMA2 Consoles Accompany Tim McGraw’s Two Lanes of Freedom Tour

Clay Paky Sharpys and grandMA2 consoles are heading out on the road with Tim McGraw as the country superstar kicks off his Two Lanes of Freedom 2013 Tour in support of his new namesake album. A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive distributor of both Clay Paky and MA Lighting in North America.

McGraw’s Two Lanes of Freedom Tour will play 30 cities across the country. It follows his incredibly successful joint Brothers of the Sun tour with Kenny Chesney, last year’s highest-ranking country tour in Billboard’s list of the top treks of 2012.

For McGraw’s latest show Premiere Global, which has been a vendor for the artist for the last decade, supplied 30 Sharpys and two grandMA2 full-size consoles. “The Sharpys are being used on the floor, on the rig and in the air for fanouts. They give a really big look,” says Steven (Creech) Anderson with Premier Global.

“The shape of the production is a big spider with arms coming down and pods at the end of each,” he continues. “There are lots of LEDs and video, and the Sharpys really enhance things. They’re great lights – everyone is trying to copy them right now, but there are no fixtures out there that compare to them.”

Lighting designer Pat Brannon went with “the ACL old-school look” by clustering four groups of four Sharpys on the rig and positioning 14 more on the floor. “I’ve used them before, but this is the first time I’ve had Sharpys on a tour,” he says. “I’m really happy with them. I like their narrow beam, the quickness and brightness of the lamp, and the great color choices. They’re small and lightweight but make a huge impact.”

Everything in the show, including the video content, is triggered by the grandMA2; a back up unit is also on hand. “We had a multi-user interface for two programmers,” says Brannon. “They could save to the same cue files at the same time, and that was great. The main feature is the video interface; I’m very fond of the DMX bridge that Control Freak provides. And it’s great to be able to write your own fixture profile.”

Brannon says he “loves the feel of the desk and using the NPUs. The speed and processing is unmatched by anything I’ve ever used.” He enjoys the new layout feature of the grandMA2 series, which he finds “very useful – it eliminates the old fashioned process of grouping. Now you can lay out in the exact formation that you have in the system. You can see what your fixtures are doing live by just looking on the screen.”

John Zajonc is production manager for the tour and Troy Eckerman was the programmer. Jeff Bertuch assisted on the video programming. Drew Finley is the content creator.

grandMA2 Helps Riverview Deliver for Zimmer at the AAOS Conference

Corporate event production company Riverview Systems Group Inc. of Milpitas, California chose four grandMA2 lights to handle lighting and display control for their client Zimmer at the AAOS (American Assoc. of Orthopedic Surgeons) conference in Chicago. A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive distributor of MA Lighting in North America.

One of the systems controlled a private area, another a public space and two served as back ups. The pair of grandMA2s in operation controlled lighting and automation of multiple screen systems, which included 32 x 20 Barco C5 LED wall in the main theater.

“We basically created a theme park in the booth,” says Riverview Systems’ Director Of Technical Design, Franco Berardi. “The whole booth was almost entirely composed of automated fixtures plus 280 Color Blasts. We turned a massive property the size of a city block into an immersive environment of color and evolving sensations. grandMA2 offered control and versatility of the technical cues, all remotely.”

Berardi says the Zimmer featured a main theater plus two 50-person private theaters; each had to be run and triggered remotely by one person. “We also needed two systems on the same network. We chose the grandMA2 for its robustness, its ability to network and its Telnet capability. We visited A.C.T Lighting to get training on the system.”

grandMA video fed the pixel-mapped truss above. “grandMA2 was used to control all the mechanics, automation, pixel-mapping, truss toners and things being lit in the booth,” Berardi explains. “It was like a ballet. We transformed the whole booth.”

The grandMA2 was controlled via High Resolution Systems’ UDC Timecode, which acted as “a bridge,” he says. “The show was very complex, but it was also glitch-free. We never had any problems with the consoles. They came through with flying colors.”

Berardi observes that, “nothing matches the grandMA2, or MA products in general, in terms of control. grandMA2 is bulletproof.”

Elidy-Big LEDs Join Queens of the Stone Age World Tour

Rockers Queens of the Stone Age have announced an extensive world tour, and Chromlech Elidy-Big LEDs will be hitting the road with the band. The tour kicks off in Europe in June. A.C.T Lighting is the exclusive distributor of Chromlech Elidy fixtures in North America.

Queens of the Stone Age just released a new album of original songs, “…Like Clockwork,” their first in six years. They made a live comeback in March at Lollapalooza Brazil and have summer tour festival dates set for the UK, Germany, Sweden, Finland, Luxembourg, Denmark, Poland, Hungary and Spain.

Lighting designer Paul Normandale is using 15 Elidy-Bigs on the tour hanging five in the air and placing five each on either side of the big screen behind the band. The fixtures, supplied by Upstaging, are deployed to display bitmapped content.

“I first saw Elidy-Bigs demo-ed in the UK,” says Normandale. “I thought they would work well on the tour since they’re a tungsten color source. And I was impressed with the unexpected nature of the effects you can create with them.”

French-made Chromlech Elidy fixtures are the world’s first LED matrixes capable of projecting volumetric graphics. They combine high-output, calibrated, warm white LEDs with specific optics to generate extremely narrow beams that far exceed the intensity of LED screens. Elidy fixtures are also decorative items that can blend easily into scenery, backgrounds and décor by using a wide range of accessories, including unique new customized covers. These covers are attached either magnetically or as a snap-on and change the panels’ appearance to take on different colors and textures, including wood, metal, mirror, leather, stone and even grass.

The Elidy-Big fixtures on the Queens of the Stone Age tour are a nine-tile configuration of the company’s 5×5 high-power LED matrixes.

Normandale reveals that the Elidy-Bigs are “working just great. Every day we find a new look we can create with them.”

Smart Monkeys, Inc. Introduces Five MxM Plug-Ins for Medialon Show Control

Smart Monkeys, Inc. has designed and published a series of five MxM plug-ins for the Medialon Show Control product line. The SMI MxM Series redefines the way Medialon users program shows and installations by offering easier programming, shorter code and faster computation.

“For the first time since Medialon Manager has become available to programmers around the world, an independent company is offering additional tools to improve the capabilities of Medialon Show Control software,” says Smart Monkeys co-founder, Stephan Villet. “We’re pleased to be the first third-party company providing Medialon MxM plug-ins. Our collection of MxMs is a powerful toolkit that allows programmers to be more flexible and work a lot faster.”

The SMI MxM Series consists of SMI Lists MxM, SMI Media Info MxM, SMI Tables MxM, SMI Strings MxM and SMI Variables MxM. Although Medialon users need a license to register each of the SMI MxM plug-ins and use them in programs, the software can be downloaded immediately from the Smart Monkeys, Inc. online store for testing features in the Medialon Manager Demo mode.

SMI Lists MxM gives extended power over List objects manipulations. Simple and easy to use, this plug-in enables users to search, resize, reverse and merge lists in seconds. They can sort a list and automatically keep associated lists synched to it. Commands such as “Convert to Medialon List” and “List Adjust Position” save time and many lines of code. Simple calculation (min, max, sum, average) is included and duplicates or empty items can be removed quickly. The plug-in is priced at $149.

SMI Media Info MxM is a very easy to use Media Metadata aggregator supporting numerous audio, video and picture codecs and formats. Users just select a media file and retrieve hundreds of metadata that can be used in programs and/or simply displayed on panel designs. The plug-in is priced at $49.

SMI Tables MxM brings the power of arrays, tables, databases and more inside Medialon Manager Pro or Lite with no additional software required. This MxM creates an advanced data structure natively within Medialon Manager. An SQL backend supports table functionality with quick sorting, filtering and a range of output options. Since the plug-in is based on SQLite, programmers experienced with SQLite can use standard SQL queries. The plug-in is priced at $299.

SMI Strings MxM makes strings manipulation even more powerful, offering a complete new set of commands never available before in Medialon Manager. Users can split, swap and trim strings; count substrings; convert or remove non-print characters; and check string format. It also introduces Regex (regular expressions) to Medialon programming. This codified method of searching is extremely powerful and well known to developers worldwide. With SMI Strings MxM and the Regex syntax, string computation is limitless. The plug-in is priced at $199.

SMI Variables MxM implements pointers and more for Medialon Manager changing the way users manage variables in projects and saving hundreds or thousands of lines of code. Correction, modification and improvement of projects are fast and efficient; users can loop, iterate, convert and manage variables with incredible ease. Distance, speed and temperature conversions are included. The plug-in is priced at $249.

In addition, Smart Monkeys, Inc. offers the SMI MxM Pack, which bundles all five plug-ins for $749, a greatly reduced price compared to individual purchases.

“”Medialon’s technical team is impressed with the powerful functionality Smart Monkeys’ new MxMs bring to the table,” said Eric J. Cantrell, North American Sales Manager for Medialon, Inc. “Opening up our system for third party developers to create plugins introduced the possibility for advanced functionality that even we hadn’t envisioned. It’s exciting to see power users like Smart Monkeys finding new and more advanced ways to adapt our software to make it even easier to use and more powerful.”

A.C.T Lighting Announces Leadership Changes

A.C.T Lighting, a leading importer and distributor of lighting products, has announced title changes and a promotion among its top tier leadership. Effective June 1 President and CEO Bob Gordon assumes Chairman and CEO duties. At the same time Ben Saltzman will be named President and COO.

The changes come at a time of unprecedented growth for A.C.T Lighting and ensure the company’s continuing success. The company, which is the exclusive North American distributor of Clay Paky lighting and MA Lighting among others, recently added Chromlech’s innovative LED matrixes to its product inventory. Earlier this year, A.C.T Lighting posted the highest sales volume in Clay Paky history for the second consecutive year marking a tripling in North American sales for Clay Paky in less than three years.

Bob Gordon founded A.C.T Lighting in 1993 with the mission to identify leading high-technology products, gain exclusivity, and stock, support and service those products as if they were their own. The company has offices in New York, Los Angeles and Toronto. “I’m extremely proud of all our accomplishments as we celebrate our 20th anniversary year,” Gordon says.

Ben Saltzman joined A.C.T Lighting in 2007 after successfully launching and running Scharff Weisberg Lighting. A graduate of SUNY Purchase with a BFA in Lighting Design, he spent time touring and working on Broadway before joining the highly renowned systems group at Production Arts Lighting.

WorldStage Provides Video Support for Multi-Tony Award Nominee “Lucky Guy” Starring Tom Hanks

Joining the long list of Broadway credits for WorldStage is “Lucky Guy,” Nora Ephron’s play about tabloid journalist and Pulitzer Prize-winner Mike McAlary, which stars Tom Hanks in his Broadway debut. WorldStage provides video support for the drama, which has garnered six Tony Award nominations for best play, lead actor, featured actor, director, scenic design and lighting design.

Video projection plays a key role in the play helping to establish a sense of time – it spans a 12-year period – and location, including newsrooms, bars and the streets of New York during the 1980′s and ’90s. Projection designer Robin Silvestri, creative director/partner in Batwin + Robin, worked with director George C. Wolfe to develop images composed of film noir-style fragments, shadows and elements rather than literal video clips.

The video system was comprised of a multitude of display devices and screen surfaces encompassing the stage, each of which were fed from a centralized Dataton WATCHOUT media server system. Each of the projection surfaces was atypically sized and oriented, which presented a number of difficulties. One such challenge was designing the projector array for the header banner that flies in and out landing at various predetermined trim heights each time. Measuring approximately 24 feet wide x 3 feet high and running across the top of the back wall, the header banner displays various newspaper headlines during the show.

“The difficulty was in trying to project imagery onto the banner in two different positions,” says Lars Pedersen, Director of Emerging Technology with WorldStage. “We used an edge-blend solution to fill the width of the banner and overshot the banner screen top and bottom so we had enough raster to provide coverage for the different trim heights. The accuracy of the automation system allowed us to pre-program the position of the content within the raster so it fell in the exact location of the physical screen.” Double-stacked Panasonic HD 6.5K projectors supplied the required resolution, brightness, and redundancy.

In a serendipitous moment Silvestri discovered that the black scenic slider panels that move across the front of the LED wall, allowing the wall function as a full piece or be sectioned off, could also be used as a projection surface. By using the header banner projectors and manipulating the media in WATCHOUT – including elevated train track elements and a subway animation -the design team was able to accomplish projections on another surface with using the same toolset.

An additional technical challenge was posed by the forced perspective ceiling panel above the set, which offers additional display surfaces: It starts as a slightly raked flat ceiling, then drops down to become an angled display for the NY Post newsroom and finally is lowered to serve as an almost vertical backdrop for the end of Act One.

“In its default position the panel, which is on an articulated arm, is laid almost parallel to the stage floor. Then it moves to a 45º angle to the audience and finally lowers to be perpendicular to the projectors,” Pedersen explains. He positioned two Christie DS+10K-M projectors side by side at the middle of the balcony to hit the panel and deliver maximum brightness and redundancy. He partnered with WATCHOUT programmer Bill Lyons to determine how to warp and map the imagery onto the panel as it travels to and assumes the various positions.

As a way to deal with the endless understudy possibilities WorldStage provided a separate control system comprised of a Coolux Widget Designer Pro package. The user interface, designed and programmed by WorldStage Technology Specialist Raul Herrera, afforded the operators a quick and efficient method of accessing and launching the appropriate Watchout show file. Comprehensive projector and playback control and status monitoring were included in the user interface as an added bonus.

Silvestri, who first worked with Pedersen 25 years ago, reports that, “he never lets us down. WorldStage was fantastic. It’s important to have confidence in a supplier, which I do in WorldStage.”

WorldStage Inc., the company created by the merger of Scharff Weisberg Inc and Video Applications Inc, continues a thirty-year legacy of providing clients the widest variety of entertainment technology coupled with conscientious and imaginative engineering services. WorldStage provides audio, video and lighting equipment and services to the event, theatrical, broadcast and brand experience markets nationally and internationally.
