Having already completed several studios for this organisation, we were invited to supply and install a further two studios (5 & 14), by a major multinational Systems Integrator.
In addition to the supply and installation of a complicated lighting grid, the project also required a fully redundant lighting control network. This was achieved by networking multiple ETC Eos Titanium consoles in order to control 16,000 DMX addresses. The two consoles were capable of controlling multiple studio spaces from the same control room. By partitioning the lighting rig using Eos software, we were able to present a robust and simple solution.
The system revolved around a single primary RPU with its own dedicated backup RPU. These RPUs were situated in the Central Apparatus Room, and the consoles would simply “client” into the network where relevant. Network monitoring was provided by ETC Conductor, which permitted others to interface via the Building Management System.
