  • A very private dinner

    When the works councils organize their annual dinner, it is each time a new event often highlighted by the choice of an original theme. The guests of this exceptional evening were transported in the mid-30s, in the middle of the prohibition period, for a total and festive immersion.
    Responsible for the lighting and decoration of the room, LS-Events has recreated the atmosphere of the roaring thirties, with lighting composed only of Starway projectors, allowing both the enhancement of the room and its decorative elements: 12 BoxKolor UHD battery projectors for entrance lighting and scenery, 12 Servo Color 4K and 6 StormLite HD for room and table lighting, plus 5 Servo BWS 20R for the projection of gobos and dynamic lighting.
    "We appreciate the Starway brand for the diversity of its products that allowed us here to make all types of lighting necessary for our scenery. On this benefit, we had a particular crush on our latest acquisition, the StormLite HD. In addition to their main function of strobe effects, they make it possible to realize washings on a very large surface with a perfect rendering of colors, an astonishing cocktail...", Stéphane Hamann, manager of LS-Events.

  • Night at the Zoo

    Located in Romanèche-Thorins in France, the Touroparc Zoo allows visitors to approach as never before more than 700 animals representing 140 species, originating from all the continents and coming from a great diversity of terrestrial biotopes and which bloom in a natural and green setting of 12 hectares.
    The management of the animal park and attractions asked GL events Audiovisual and its Sales & Integration department for spot lighting of certain parts of the park. GL events Audiovisual conducted night tests at the end of July 2018, and Starway's WindKolor was selected for its ability to meet the specifications. 36 projectors were delivered to Touroparc in the middle of August, the first "night mission" having taken place on August 31st.
     
    "The goal was to allow small groups of spectators to watch the wildlife of the park at dusk. It was impossible to draw power supplies for this installation which should also be able to evolve with the seasons in order to vary the light scenes presented to the public. The idea of ​​using battery-powered products was quickly imposed, as well as the constraint of having products able to withstand the elements and to blend in with the vegetation in all discretion. In addition, the easy access menu of the WindKolor also allows novice users to quickly set up light scenes without the help of a console", Stephan Perriand, Head of Sales / Integration at GL events Audiovisual.

  • Under the Magnum Sun

    What's more natural than a sunset on the Seine! But when it comes to mastering it is a different story. And when the Parisian agency UBI-BENE sells it to MARTINI for 8 days ... it is Magnum who finds the solution.
     
    The goal was to create a large light source, round and uniform, which could be graduated and able to change of color. After performing several tests with his client, Magnum realized that to be dazzling, it had to be 15 times brighter than a full-day screen. The only product that met all these issues was the Starway  DataKolor.
     
    "We first made a small model of 16 DataKolor which gave us full satisfaction. We then embarked on the big adventure, assembling more than 177 Datakolor to make a sun of 8m in diameter. The two problems encountered were to design a mechanical assembly and find a solution to make these projectors waterproof, which was not easy (we even cut some DataKolor). In the end, everyone was fully satisfied, under the Magnum Sun... ", Jérôme Chupin, Magnum's Managing Director.

  • Reborn in LED

    The Phoenix group gave on September 29 its only and unique concert in France at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris. A highly anticipated live by the French electronic music and pop rock band, awarded with a Grammy Award for Best Independent Album.
     
    As a tour provider, S Group strives to technically perfect an innovative scenography designed by Pierre Claude, light designer and console operator for the entire international tour, which, following the advice of Léon van Empel, CEO of S Group, has discovered and adopted the new Star Star StrongLite HD stroboscopes.
    "At the first briefing with the artists about the light design, I first realized that the project was going to be complicated. The idea was to play on a huge video floor of 11m x 9m reflected by a mirror of 11m x 10m itself inclined at 45 °. The light had to be discreet and out of the question to hang on or use the festival bridges hidden by this gigantic backdrop.
     
    My choice for stroboscopes was then turned to a classic model.
    At the time I was not convinced by what was done in LED; some did not have enough power, dimmer curves and colors were approximate, there was no random, they were too heavy and unsightly ... With a group of this size, we play as much in clubs only in the biggest festivals of the world like headliner: the power must follow.
     
    During the tour in Asia (without our kit), I was forced to use LED strobes, which allowed me to question my choice. I then asked my friend Leon van Empel what he had to offer me. He recommended me some Stronglite HD from Starway, a brand I did not know much about, but everything seemed to be on the technical sheet.
     
    I give full confidence to the choices and proposals of S Group, we then did the test on the next date (a few days before Paris). I was immediately charmed. The machines are discreet with incredible power, the dimmer and the colors are fine, and my technicians are delighted. We have in all 5 Stronglite HD against the light of the mirror, 5 against the light, and 8 in the side.
     
    Perfect for an Arena! I leave so confident for the big festivals", Pierre Claude, light designer.
