The technical team at Casino Koksijde extensively tested the different brands and luminaires available on the market. According to Miguel Rooms, chief technician for Casino Koksijde, there were several conditions that an LED luminaire had to meet. First of all, sufficient output and color correctness are a must. An accurate white, variable or not, was undebatable. In addition, it was essential that the new luminaires dim nicely and operate quietly. Functionalities such as color and a 1-channel mode, which could work for both white and color, were nice extras.
“The ETC Source four LED Series 3 X8 immediately met all our needs. A compact fixture of 305 Watts that could replace both our 1000 Watts and 2000 Watts fixtures was a pleasant surprise. The ETC also has the advantage that it is a modular lamp. In our front bridge, we have both 15°-30° and 25° - 50° zoom lenses. So on stage, we can use the same zoom lenses as well as the Fresnel adapters and still keep the same light and colors.” Miguel says.
In addition to replacing the PC, Fresnel, and profile fixtures with the Source Four Series 3 X8, Miguel and his team also chose the ETC Colorsource PAR to replace their classic PAR 64 fixtures.
“ With filters that we can easily place on the Colorsource PAR, we can simulate the different beam angles of a classic par. With this upgrade to a 166 Watts fixture, we make a substantial saving on our energy costs as well. Our horizon fixtures were the last piece of the puzzle where we were able to find a perfect match in the ETC Colorsource cyc fixtures, an additional upgrade to LED."
With this make-over, Casino Koksijde is future-proof and able to facilitate theater performances at the highest level for the next decade to come.
