VisualDMX installed in Rotterdam concert hall
15 December 2009
The Netherlands - The De Doelen in Rotterdam underwent a major refurbishment this year. De Doelen was last reconstructed after the end of Second World War as part of the rebuild of this Dutch city and incorporates four individual concert halls that also double as a congress venue making it the largest of its kind in the Netherlands. The lighting design for the 2009 refurbishment was undertaken by the design team at ARUP headed by Rogier van der Heide. In particular the Grote Zaal's (Large Hall) renovation included a new lighting rig and control system.
VisualDMX software lighting control from Visual Productions has been selected for controlling the house lights, stage lighting and LED fixtures throughout the Grote Zaal. The project manager for this renovation was Harm Ruitenbeek, overseeing a wide array of important issues that the control solution was required to resolve. Key to this installation was the use of VisualTouch to allow stage staff to operate the lights in a user-friendly fashion, letting them choose from various predefined presets, whilst the house technicians can still access a more detailed set of controls.
Ruitenbeek states, "Personally we, De Doelen are very pleased with VisualTouch, especially the diverse possibilities that the system has to offer and the simple user-interface for the operator, which is ideal within our organization."
The control system uses two Duple units connected to a small form factor PC running VisualDMX 24/7. Two separate touch screen computers run the software for remote controlling VisualDMX via the network.
