Belgium’s biggest night club hosts ArKaos Stage media servers19 November 2012
NOXX² Antwerp has completed its redesign with two ArKaos Stage servers driving video on a 30 square meter 3D sculpture and a 300 square meter LED ceiling.
Five years have gone by since NOXX² Antwerp first opened its doors to the public in September 2007, during which time it has become one of the biggest clubs in Belgium, able to accommodate up to 2,500 clubbers in five different areas.
Keeping up with the best clubs in the world, NOXX² is constantly improving. The management recently decided to renew the design of the main room with a spectacular 3D mapping projection driven by an ArKaos Stage media server. They also switched to another ArKaos Stage server for displaying visuals on the LED web that covers the entire ceiling.
When entering the redesigned main room, eyes are almost immediately drawn to the massive 3D sculpture, which forms the body for the revolutionary 3D mapping projection, unique in the Belgian club scene. Built right above the DJ booth, the huge 3D shape is composed of more than 80 surfaces animated with custom content designed by Konstruktiv.
The new video mapper extension, running on a dedicated ArKaos Stage media server, is said to have allowed fast and easy setup of the various animations on each surface with pixel-precise alignment. Thanks to MediaMaster Pro, the club operator can also quickly program new visuals directly from the lighting desk – a GrandMA2 Full Size – such as texts and animated logos that will be projected on the sculpture during special events or just to make every night unique.
Above, the 300 square meter colour web turns the whole ceiling into a giant LED screen. It is comprised of more than 120 DMX universes and was programmed into the club’s GrandMA2 from a second ArKaos Stage server running MediaMaster Pro with the LED Mapper extension.
