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.
