City Theatrical SHoW DMX at Olympics opening

The Olympic rings on London's Tower Bridge.

30 July 2012

UK - City Theatrical's SHoW DMX Neo wireless DMX system was chosen to control the lighting on the most iconic of all symbols of the London Olympics, the Olympic rings on London's Tower Bridge.

Over one billion people worldwide watched on Friday, 27 July, 2012 as the Olympic torch passed under the bridge by speedboat on the way to Olympic Stadium for the opening ceremonies. Television crews worldwide will use the Tower Bridge and its rings as a backdrop for their Olympic coverage throughout the games.

Lighting designer Adam Bassett specified over 90 moving lights and a variety of other gear that required four universes of SHoW DMX wireless DMX to control, along with panel antennas with custom antenna extension cables, with Transceivers built into equipment racks. The SHoW DMX equipment was provided and installed by Neg Earth.

For in-depth coverage of the production behind the Opening Ceremony, be sure to check out the August/September issue of LSi - out soon!
