The Czech house took over the entire Business Design Centre building in Islington
The Czech house took over the entire Business Design Centre building in Islington.
Czech National TV's Olympic broadcast studio is located there, and the Pavilion features massive screens so the public can enjoy all the best of the Olympic action, together with food, beer, wine and digestives, chess, streetball, art, Czech Team merchandising and a host of other cultural offerings including a stage for live bands, DJs and other entertainment, with sociability high on the agenda.
AV Media's Project Manager Filip Klein explains that when they won the contract to co-ordinate all the technicals for the Czech House, it was a 'no brainer' that they would specify lighting from the Czech Republic's best known entertainment technology manufacturer.
Apart from this, with no air conditioning in the venue, it was essential that they utilised low heat emitting lightsources to keen the room at comfortable temperatures for everyone's enjoyment .
AV Media also already has Robe products in its inventory, "We like Robe not just because it's Czech," says Klein, "But because it's reliable and really excellent quality kit". With the Czech House running for 14 hours a day, all the kit was worked extremely hard for the two week installation.
The new purchases include a selection of Robe's latest Robin series products, - 20 Robin 1200 LEDWash and 40 Robin 600 LEDWash, six MMX Spots and eight Robin 600E Beams. These are utilized together with AV Media's existing ColorSpot and Wash 700E AT fixtures and ColorSpot 2500E ATs.
In addition to this, five curved set pieces used to divide up the space into separate areas - and like the Czech Team clothing designs, inspired by the work of artist Frantiek Kupka - are illuminated with a variety of internally mounted Anolis LED fixtures. hese are a mix of 60 Anolis ArcLine 80MC soft whites and ArcLine Outdoor optic 80 MCs.
