Australia - Perth-based PAV Events recently used their new PROLIGHTS PANORAMA IP65 Air Beams
as an integral part of the recent Big Bash League events held at Optus Stadium with lighting designed by Hugh Taranto.
PAV worked with the stadium’s Sports Presentation partner - Kojo Events to ensure the half-time light and firework show offered that extra wow-factor and that it fully synchronised with the stadium’s own in-built lighting systems.
“Hugh programmed the show on the venue’s new MA onPC and we provided all of the on-ground infrastructure,” commented Mike Bird, PAV’s Business and Technical Manager. “In fact, the entire production was Show Technology gear!
The Panoramas were wheeled onto the field in time for the celebration, two on each of four custom-made dollies. Located around the perimeter of the oval, the Panoramas swept across the stadium helped by haze and firework haze.
“As we are the in-house AV provider at Optus Stadium, we needed something to meet our demands for outdoor lighting at events and also to support Kojo with on-ground lighting for sporting events,” explained Mike. “Not only are the Panoramas IP-rated but they have incredible punch and offer a lot of flexibility. The Panoramas are going to be a great asset for all of our outdoor work around the city especially as there appears to be a distinct lack of searchlights in Perth. They’ll be great for indoor work too when we need a strong beam light.”
Mike further mentioned that the reliability of a Show Technology distributed product was a key factor in the purchase as was the backup and service offered. He noted that feedback from the client was excellent and demand for the PROLIGHTS Panoramas is growing!
