Wybron dims the lights in Tulsa
9 January 2009
USA - Wybron's mechanical dimmers and dowsers have been installed in a 5,600-seat arena in Tulsa, Okla. The Eclipse Iris IT, a mechanical dimmer/dowser, is attached to 48 sports lights at the Union Multipurpose Activity Centre, a facility owned by Union Public Schools and used for tournaments, trade shows, conventions, and more.
Here the Eclipses turn ordinary arena lights into entertainment lights, letting the massive fixtures go from bright to black - and back again - in quick time.
Technical manager Bryan Deyo is more than happy with the Wybron Eclipses. "I can honestly say I've never had one get stuck," Deyo said. "They're really a good unit."
Deyo often uses the Eclipses during basketball season to plunge the arena into darkness for player introductions, allowing him to use spotlights and moving heads for dramatic effects. Then Deyo opens the Eclipses, instantly flooding the arena with light so the game can begin.
