As dynamic display in the city has become essential, screen surfaces are multiplying. Whether it is to disseminate the communication of town halls and local authorities or commercial advertisements, the installer Lynxmedia offers high-performance solutions with a historical specialty to pharmacy pharmacies.
Lynxmedia integrates its screens in made-to-measure media or real street furniture. The majority of its non-transparent screens are made with Starway StarPanels. They are equipped with a Novastar TB3 interface which allows them to be controlled locally or remotely, while offering a stand-alone player that is easy to program.
“Indoors and outdoors, we make the majority of our screens with StarPanel video panels. We particularly appreciate their modularity and reliability, and their pitch is perfectly suited to near and far vision, required by the information needs of our customers. In addition, their high brightness allows us to manage a dynamic display that is always perfectly visible even with very strong sunlight, by automatically adjusting it thanks to an external sensor”, Alexandre Marchal, manager of Lynxmedia.
While DJ sets are topical in today's live streaming landscape, those organized by Night Event's Production are particularly noteworthy. Whether for FG with a shot on the Amp stage or for a broadcast on Twitch and Facebook with those shot in their premises transformed into a video set, the light signature is original.
Technical event provider, Night Event's Production has created its signature by integrating into its TV sets Starway LiciaKolor that they just acquired. Its 18 machines allow to obtain an original decoration and particularly remarkable effects by a very beautiful rendering to the image.
“We have just completed our Starway fleet, which is already rich in BoxKolor UHD and EventKolor, with LiciaKolor, which really won us over. On the visual side, the mirror effect of their chromed body allows them to be fully integrated into the decor, and their light tubes allow their use as much in markup as in subdued lighting. On battery and controlled by wireless DMX, they simply avoid the cables on the set. Since we have them, they are on all our lives and the reactions are there”, Tom Duval, manager of Night Event’s Production.
Starway, unique ...
Last week-end, gamers were invited to stay comfortably on their sofa to find the special “Winter” edition of Start To Play on Twitch, 100% digital and live! Dynamic and fun, several highlights were offered throughout the event, including esport competitions, conferences, challenges and interviews with prestigious guests.
A loyal provider and partner of Start To Play events which usually take place face-to-face, the service provider Standby wanted to continue to add its personal touch by offering its lighting design and LED screen on the Via Storia TV set. So in the background, a screen measuring 4 by 2.5 meters, judiciously placed on the ground and composed of StarPanel modules, made a very good impression by enhancing the images of interviews and video games. Also on the set, some BoxKolor UHD projectors which colored the spaces here and there.
“We wanted to rediscover part of the DNA of Start To Play events in digital and the big screen is an essential part of that. It seemed obvious to us to also offer it here to boost the staging. Our StarPanel screen, easily usable indoors once its brightness was reduced to 10% and the video synchronized, produced a very beautiful image rendering, for an exceptional live that the organizer and the spectators greatly appreciated”, Loïc Truntzer, manager of Standby.
Starway, the big game...
Since January 14 and throughout the winter holiday season, the dam of the valley of Tignes lights up every evening from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. It then impresses the whole valley thanks to a scenography designed by Nicolas Galloux, which sublimates the majestic character of the highest dam in France.
To achieve the light mapping of the entire structure, the S-Group Rhône-Alpes agency has deployed part of its fleet of automatic IP Aqua projectors from Starway. Installed at the foot of the dam and without any protection against bad weather and extreme temperatures, 7 Aqua 480 BWS and 10 Aqua 580 BWS ensure the show, without encountering the slightest technical problem.
“Although we have been using Aqua projectors for several months on many demanding services such as Fort Boyard, Asterix…, we must admit that here they have particularly impressed us. Despite a projection distance of 120 m at the bottom of the dam which extends 200 m at the top, we were able to achieve full lighting thanks to the perfect control of the luminous flux that these high-performance and resistant machines offer us”, Sébastien Gauthier, project manager at S-Group Rhône-Alpes.
At the foot of the Eiffel Tower, the Pullmann hotel was this Saturday the Parisian meeting place for lovers for an exceptional event, "Time For Love". A magical and unique moment for an unforgettable hotel night, accompanied by a gastronomic dinner and a concert live from the hotel and broadcast in streaming in each room.
To immortalize this very special night, the Parisian branch of the technical provider Production 85 imagined, thanks to an adapted selection of Starway projectors, a lighting to match the event. Outside, 16 Ariane 1430FC LED bars illuminated the entire facade. Inside, 8 Servo Color 4K and 6 Servo BWS 10R energized the stage image for live streaming.
“The lighting of the facade was complex because it was not possible to install the lighting on the sidewalk. We had to put the spotlight on only the hotel and restaurant caps while ensuring a homogeneous light, able to reach the top floor despite the many balconies. When we lit the Arianes, we were won over. Bright, beautiful colors and capable of generating very pure white, these are some exceptional bars. They will undoubtedly be a must for all the next events already scheduled by the hotel", Mickael Percot, Manager of Production 85.
The Grand Center district is a key element in the influence of the city of Cergy. For its end-of-year celebrations, the Cergy Pontoise agglomeration community decided to install beautiful illuminations in accordance with a "blue and white" color chart.
The lighting was entrusted to the company Backline which composed with the elements of the existing decorations: the trees and street furniture of the Place "Charles de Gaulle" and the large hall "Hubert Renaud", thus creating a backdrop lending itself perfectly to the game. 24 Starway's MiniKolor LED PAR illuminated the columns of the hall including its ceiling height, and the opacity of the curtains allowed the creation of an impressive natural cyclo with many chaser effects. 8 Servo Beam 2R positioned on the ceiling of this room were enough to manage all the external dynamic effects, with perfectly controlled beams highlighted by the humidity present in this season. On the "Place des Arts", Backline used 4 of its “Medusa” lights. This product, created in-house, uses the full capabilities of Starway's SupraKolor LED PAR with its 8 to 40° zoom perfectly suited to the dimensions of the luminaire. To bring dynamism and complementary colors to the Medusas, 4 Servo Beam 2R have been judiciously installed to make the Medusas in the wind even more “alive”. The existing Servo Beam 2R gobos proved to be a perfect fit for the theme of the event.
“In this type of low-light urban lighting, the use of small Starway machines is ideal. Their lighting is sufficient and the life of their lamps allows lighting over long periods. In addition, their low consumption is a strong argument here where the daily electricity consumption is displayed on a huge counter in the reception hall of the urban community", Jacques Collette, manager of Backline.
In the heart of the main courtyard of the Departmental Fire and Rescue Service of the Ain, the statue of the war memorial is a real landmark for firefighters and related services, who celebrate there throughout the year numerous tributes and official ceremonies.
The original statue lighting project proposed to the installer "Concept Son" described the use of permanently recessed spotlights. But faced with the inability to provide a source of electricity without resorting to major works, they proposed an alternative, favorably received by the communication department of the Fire and Rescue Service: the use of battery-powered projectors. With the advantage of illuminating the statue when necessary, while offering the possibility to illuminate any other event in other spaces, it is quite simply 4 Starway AeroKolor battery-powered projectors that have been acquired for blue-white-red custom-made lighting.
“The Aerokolor, in addition to offering all the advantages of a battery-powered projector with high autonomy, delivers a great amount of power perfectly suited to the enhancement of a monument or a building. And if the use of lithium batteries may have awakened the sensitivity of our customers, the clarity of the information provided by Starway on the proper use of its batteries has helped to keep everyone in confidence”, Sébastien Michel, sales manager and partner at Concept Son.
Starway, highly autonomous...
Without artists! Without technicians! Without scenes! Nothing is possible... The ED&N scene, a well-know performance hall in Sausheim, hosted at the end of the year an unprecedented project in the region: "& 100Ciel". While it is no longer possible to come and applaud the artists on stage, everything is possible by streaming, hosting 100 artists on a dream set inspired by prestigious television variety shows.
With a technical management by TSE and lighting design by Loïc Marafini, the stage is illuminated under a beautiful collection of Starway projectors: 24 Callisto projectors set the scene for animations developed by 14 Servo BWS 20R, 16 Servo BWS10R and 24 Servo Color 4K.
“Callisto is indeed the essential projector of the moment. With the development of our streaming services, it is the ideal companion for the TV sets that we offer our customers. Whether for shows, music videos or institutional, it is always very appreciated by the directors and lighting designers”, Frédéric WALDT, design manager at TSE.
This year, the north of France is not lacking in the tradition of celebrating Christmas in the most beautiful magic of illuminations. The main cities dress their squares, theaters, monuments, hospitals and, for the most important of them, their belfries with light, as if to sublimate this long-awaited moment of pleasure and serenity.
A loyal provider of the city of Arras for its illuminations, One Events Live, has been widely requested by other cities in the region. A revival of activity which required the deployment of many Starway projectors. For the city of Arras, 140 FullKolor HD, 14 FloodLite HD, 12 WindKolor, 14 Ariane 1430FC and 8 CityKolor 5410HD were deployed for the illuminations of the belfry and the "Place des Héros", the theater, the church St-Jean-Baptiste and the hospital center. In Saint-Omer, 40 FullKolor HD, 14 Floodlite HD, 10 EarthKolor and 8 CityKolor enhance the "Moulin à Café theater", the "Place Victor Hugo" and the arches of the pedestrian streets. The belfry of the city of Comines also shines under the light of 14 EarthKolor, 13 BoxKolor UHD and 16 FullKolor HD. As for Béthune, the facade of the town hall, the "Grance Place" and the St Vaast church become magical thanks to 108 FullKolor HD.
“Our experience with the illuminations of the city of Arras spread widely to neighboring towns and we immediately invested accordingly to meet all demands. The very high reliability, quality and diversity of Starway projectors have reinforced their use across all services. This generated an intense level of activity for our structure, which was largely supported by the commercial and technical departments of Freevox. We are proud to have been able in our own way to give an optimistic impetus to the arrival of the new year”, the technical team of One Events Live.
Starway, the magic of light...
With the "Salle Polyvalente des Tilleuls", the Town Hall of Montsoult (95) has a very beautiful multipurpose hall. It offers a 10-meter opening stage in a real theater, ideal for hosting all activities of municipal life, ceremonies and cultural performances.
Its technical evolution has just been carried out by Rayflection, a way of continuing the action of its late manager Jeremy Power who had considered improving its lighting. It results in the additional installation of 6 automatic Starway Dino projectors.
“It was under the guidance of lighting designer Arthur Oudin that the choice was made to install Dino. Its exceptional weight / power / quality / price ratio makes it the perfect automatic for this type of installation”, Pascal Maltese, director of Rayflection.
Starway, all ready...
Identified by its yellow color, La Première represents the television and radio network owned by France Télevisions which broadcasts in overseas territories. Among the nine television channels that make it up, two of them recently inaugurated their new sets following the move to new studios, Martinique la 1ère and Mayotte la 1ère.
For these sets dedicated to news and magazines, Eurolight System, technical lighting service provider for France Télévisions, has created a new design with a beautiful combination of Starway projectors, including 40 Titan 1230HDL, 12 Servo Color 4K and 10 LiveKolor HD projectors for Martinique la 1ère and 34 Titan 1230HDL, 8 Servo Color 4K and 20 LiveKolor HD projectors for Mayotte la 1ère.
“The enhancement of television sets requires beautiful colors and a wide range of effects. With Starway projectors, we achieve the required precision perfectly. TThe Titans guarantee powerful illumination that can be easily focused using diffusers and they produce a homogeneous range ideal for coloring cycloramas, while LiveKolor and Servo Color express themselves above all on the dynamics of magazines”, Frederic Francey, director of Eurolight System.
Starway, the sense of colors...
The "Saut du Doubs" is a wonder of nature classified as a "Major National Site" and located on the Franco-Swiss border. With a waterfall of 27 m, this place is discovered every year by many tourists, during a very spectacular visit by boat trip to get as close as possible to this grandiose setting.
Taking advantage of the cancellation of the Swiss fireworks display normally organized each year, Equalizer Souns System offered for the first time an enhancement of the site on the French side by deploying in addition to the classic fireworks display a highlight of the waterfall. A very STARWAY service with 10 WindKolor, 2 AéroKolor and 2 EarthKolor projectors.
“The place required the use of battery powered projectors.

Starway, in total freedom...
To celebrate Halloween, the Castle of the Loyère in Saône & Loire has been transformed for four days into a Castle of Chills. Children took advantage of the many, of course, frightening activities offered throughout a course which ended each day in the illuminated park.
Obviously, the lighting of the park helped to create the mysterious atmosphere.

Starway, fantastic ...
This summer in Bandol (83), it was enough to stroll in the heart of the city to discover illuminated alleys and flamboyant facades evoking its history through the personalities who crossed its path... At the rendezvous of this exceptional route, a lighting of the Town Hall, then a succession of videos and projections of images and imaginations, capable of transporting us into the history of the city.
This first edition of the "Lights of the City" emphasized the promotion of the town hall as the focal point of the event. For this, TSE, sound and light service provider for the event, deployed, according to a light design signed by Loïc Marafini, 14 Callisto LED bars, mainly used for dynamic lighting of openings, and 12 WideKolor HD from Starway.
“The Starway Callisto projectors recommended here turned out to be perfect for this very nice enhancement. This new generation of bars provides dual lighting: their 4° white LEDs provide great power and animation possibilities, complemented by their RGB LEDs arranged in a matrix. Satisfied with this acquisition, we will also be able to use their KlingNet compatibility to develop our animations on our future services”, Jérôme Bigeard, manager of TSE.

It was this summer at Pradet (83) in the Caravero Park, among the rare concerts held by the municipality. And it is not without humor that Erick Baert, the new generation of imitators, allowed the public to meet more than a hundred artists during an hour and a half of show.

It was a real pleasure for us as well as for the technicians to showcase our Starway fleet: consistent, efficient and perfectly suited to current demand”, Marcel Martin, manager of 2MTS.
Starway, the magic of light.
This summer at Mag Scène, the consoles were all locked. A time of reflection which led to the creation of a design unit obviously bearing the name "Desk Locked" and led by Vincent Goepp and Joshua Duplany. To introduce themselves, they make a multi-faceted clip that showcases the artist Ears Bleeder and all the know-how of this new team.
A distinctive lighting that was able to draw on the entire Mag Scène park which gives pride of place to Starway projectors. In the end, about 20 Servo Beam 5R for the beams across the entire width of the stage, 6 Vega widely used in effects mode behind the artist, 3 StormLIte HD used as strobe and as a color changer under the floor grids and 2 DynaKolor behind each guitarist.
“We closed the screens, we thought about it, and we turned on again. We offer our lighting designs for any type of project and we like to use spotlights that give free rein to our creativity. This is the case with Starway. The Vega is totally atypical. We love its hyper graphics capabilities and ultra power for use with or without smoke, and even in broad daylight. The die-forging of the StormLite remains unique to create effects that stand out from the simple strobe and the 5R still generates perfect beams, even after many years of service”, Vincent Goepp and Joshua Duplany, lighting designers for Mag Scène.
Starway, limitless ...
How to return to the cinema without worry? Marc Animation found the solution in partnership with the municipality of Communay. An open-air and drive-in cinema for an exceptional session with the film Grease, which hosted up to 200 cars in front of Marc Animation's giant LED screen.

New this year, a live music scene was highlighted by 8 StormLite HD, used both in strobe effect and in colorimetry.
“The new Aperta LED beam projector is simply impressive for its power / weight ratio.

Starway, always higher...
When the weekend begins with a festive evening organized by a private company to wish greetings to more than 1,000 guests, and immediately goes on to a famous bodywork garage in the Lille region which transformed for the occasion its workshops into a DJ-Electro club open to the public and welcoming 5,000 visitors, everything is possible!

During this Christmas period, the main shopping street in Douai takes on the appearance of celebrations. At its center, the Henneron jewelry store lights up like a precious stone, an elegant choice of distinction to salute the perfection of a renowned jeweler.
For its first request for ephemeral and distinctive lighting, it was to the supplier and installer AT-Light that the jeweler turned to find a perfectly suitable lighting product. His selection quickly moved to Starway’s new Ariane 1430FC IP LED bar. Four Ariane are installed outside, also lighting the cornice of the building and four others inside, behind the windows of the first floor.
“For our installer and service provider activity, the Ariane 1430FC bar is ideal.
