W-DMX joins Natal Luz Gramado party
21 February 2012
Brazil - W-DMX by Wireless Solution Sweden recently helped bring a holiday shower of lights to the Natal Luz Gramado Festival in Brazil. Billed as the biggest Christmas party in the country, Natal Luz saw an audience of approximately 1.4m people. The season lasted 74 days - 3 November 3, 2011 to 15 January 2012.
Four W-DMX transmitters and 12 W-DMX receivers handled a flawless signal to 48 Moving Spot IM700, six Clay Paky Alpha Beam 1500,12 Atomic 3000, 36 Moving Wash IM575, eight Laser System DMX, 60 Fire Machine DMX, 36 Par LED 3W AQUALED, and eight fog machines; 120 Canais dimmers plus control was from a grandMA Ultra Light console and a grandMA NPU.
Daniel Ridano, owner of Lighting Bits based in Sao Paulo, was both the technical consultant and distributor for W-DMX for the show. Ridano has a background in lighting consoles and DMX control and has been a W-DMX consultant since 2010, with some of Brazil's biggest shows to credit, including the 100-year anniversary of the discovery of Machu Picchu in Peru and the Bradesco Seguros Christmas Tree in Brazil, recorded as the world's largest Christmas tree.
Natal Luz was commissioned by the Do Natal Luz organization and the technical production was handled by Veritas, with head technician Carlos Alberto Fumanchu and Carlos Fabio da Silva. Ridano commented, "They needed a DMX signal distribution system that could withstand long distances and a varied climate in a central area of town for a long period of time. After consultation, it was decided that W-DMX by Wireless Solution was the best way to solve this problem. It didn't let anyone down - the system worked perfectly throughout the entire season."
"We're very happy with Daniel's successes with W-DMX in South America," said Niclas Arvidsson, CEO of Wireless Solution. "He knows DMX technology extremely well and has made many big event possible."
Wireless Solution will be showing the latest products in the W-DMX G4 range during PLASA Focus in Austin, Texas this week.
