Robe Lighting goes in at Trinidad nightspot29 August 2014
A major refurbishment at Club India Nex 5.0HD in Chaguanas, Trinidad, has resulted in the installation of Robe and Anolis LED lighting fixtures. Island-based creative design and engineering practice Streamline Systems handled the project which made use of ROBIN LEDBeam 100 fixtures as well as multiple other models from the Czech Republic manufacturer’s inventory.
The owner of the 800-capacity nightspot wanted a fresh new look to ensure the venue kept at the forefront of trend-setting on the island.
As part of the technical upgrade, the lighting designers chose ten ROBIN LEDBeam 100 moving lights and two Robe Faze 800 FT Pro hazer for atmospherics; together with 72 x Anolis ArcSource 4MC LED fixtures for the ceiling grid, with another 16 used to downlight a set of dangly glass-bead chandeliers.
The LEDBeam 100s are positioned at the front and back of the stage areas and are used in a truly ‘multi-functional’ sense for lighting both live performances and club nights and for their beams, strobing and wash effects. With the inbuilt selection of authentic colour temperature whites, they are also said to make very effective artist key-lighting.
Above the lighting rig on the stage is the grid of 72 Anolis ArcSource 4MC downlighters, programmed to produce matrix style effects.
The lights are controlled via a LightJockey system which is run day-to-day by a house lighting engineer.
The Robe and Anolis fixtures were all supplied through Robe’s US headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, with further support for the project coming from Robe’s club lighting specialist, David Chesal.
”It’s without doubt the smallest, lightest and fastest moving head I’ve ever used! It’s versatile enough to tour with Armin Van Buuren yet still within the budget for Caribbean nightclub installations,” commented Michael Pereira of Streamline Systems.
