A Dramatic Change with Dynamic Lighting
Colegio Americano de Guatemala located in Guatemala City, includes a 500-capacity theatre that recently received a lighting upgrade of LED fixtures from Elation Professional supplied by audio, video and lighting integration company Aviitec. Giovanni Merida of Aviitec explains, “The initial focus was to improve the audio quality of the venue and consequently Aviitec presented the school with a proposal for a new microphone, audio and automation system while stressing to them that a lighting upgrade was also needed. I then contacted John Lopez at Elation to talk about the possibilities.”
“This is an exciting project because full LED in a theatre is unique for Guatemala,” Giovanni worked with Aviitec’s Julio Arenales and Elation’s John Lopez on the lighting design, which was pre-visualized for the client using Elation -distributed Capture Atlas™ lighting design software.
The lighting package consists of 10 Platinum Spot III™ moving heads, 12 SixPar 300™ fixtures, 11 ACL Curtain™ batten luminaires, each with 14 individual 15W RGBW LEDs, and an Antari F1 Pro Touring Fazer™ for atmospheric fog and haze effects. The rig was programmed on and operates using Emulation lighting control software with a MidiCon lighting controller.
