ETC Desire LED gives Royal Danish Playhouse an extra sparkle
Date Posted: 10/26/2015
ETC's Danish dealer Bico has replaced 40 aging and energy-inefficient halogen fixtures which light the stage tower of the Royal Danish Playhouse - with just 17 ETC
Selador® Desire® D60XTI Lustr®+ LED fixtures
Bico's lighting designer Hans Henrik Schmidt says: "Originally, the tower was lit by some 40kW of lighting; the management were keen to reduce power consumption, so cut that by half, but were then, of course, disappointed with the output quality.
"After talking to us about how they could obtain the same high quality of lighting, but with lower power usage, we offered them 17 of the outdoor ETC
, which use a combined total of little more than two kilowatts."
, Schmidt was able to create a look that could be stored directly in the Desire fixtures. At night, all that the end users need to do is turn on the power and the Desire system will come on at the desired brightness and color without the need for an additional external control system.
ETCnomad is a standalone dongle which plugs into the USB slot of a computer and runs ETC
software, so that lighting can be programmed and played back anywhere.
With the Selador fixtures giving the copper clad stage tower extra sparkle, it is now just as eye catching as the glazed theater foyer and the river whose banks the Playhouse is on.
