Columns in the spotlight
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.
