CueCore installed at Papenburg CinemaCue Core goes to the movies
Germany - Visual Productions' German distributor, LMP, recently supplied a CueCore and other lighting equipment for the new Cinema Centre in Papenburg. Designed and implemented by Werner Post of W.P.highlights, his concept revolves around energy efficiency with the magic word for the overall design being "Emotional signage". The installation included the complete interior and exterior lighting.

LMP's own range of LED fixtures, V:LED were specified for the interior lighting of the new cinema building. Post opted for Visual Productions' CueCore, solid-state controller, to control the LEDs by DMX via V:LED USC-500 and dynamic RGB outdoor LED lighting. Post programmed the outdoor lighting using the CueCore's scheduler to trigger the colour changes he had in place. The CueCore's scheduler is not only capable of triggering on time, date and weekday but also on sunrise and sunset, which really allows for programming creativity in such an installation.

Alongside the scheduled lighting design Post wanted to offer the Cinema true flexibility and creativity with their outdoor 'canvas' of the building's facade itself. The CueCore allowed this to become possible with the implementation of the OSC protocol. Post made a simple remote control via an iPhone installed with the TouchOSC App.

The Cinema staff are thus able to easily change the exterior lighting to reflect the latest movie that is screening. Werner Post comments, "Our projects are always quality, with energy efficiency and durability of the technology crucial to our choice of products. The cinema complex was equipped with 59 LED spots with a total capacity of only 3,000 watts. Innovative solid-state lighting control was key to allowing reliable scheduled and manual control of my lights. The CueCore provided the answer."
