The Netherlands - As part of their recent move to expand Podium Victorie’s audience capacity, the owners of the Dutch club recently decided to move to an inner-city location.
The venue’s owners wanted to install a state-of-the-art lighting rig to provide visiting bands with the most modern powerful high-energy support. Dutch distributor Rolight upgraded the club’s stage lighting using Chauvet Professional Maverick, Rogue and COLORdash fixtures.
In total, 20 Maverick MK2 Spot LEDs, 61 Rogue R2 Washes, six Rogue RH1 Hybrids and 36 COLORdash Par-Hex 12 RGBAWUV fixtures were specified for the stage. The versatile lighting rig ensures a practically unlimited selection of looks to fit a whole manner of needs, from bold rock ‘n roll looks to subtle theatrical scenes.
“The combination of Maverick LED spots, and Rogue LED washes and hybrids creates a perfect concoction of lighting for the main stage,” commented Rolight Project Manager Christian Borgers. “And thanks to the competitive price point of the fixtures, both the lighting crew and management could be happy about the installation.”
Maverick fixtures are used as back lighting, as well as front lighting for the band and effect lighting on the dancefloor. The powerful Maverick provides the punchy energy needed for high-octane rock shows.
“The fixture is a true workhorse,” commented Borgers. “Its super-bright beam cuts through any wash, and the optics keep the gobos very crisp all through the beam field. Even putting a mildly saturated colour over a projected gobo will not lead to colour shadows or uneven sharpness of the image.”
Complementing the Maverick fixtures is a selection of Rogue R2 Wash fixtures positioned from trussing upstage, downstage, stage left and right to the main grid above the audience.
Adding a different wash element to the overall look of the stage is a collection of COLORdash Par-Hex 12 RGBAWUV and COLORdash Par-Hex 7 RGBAWUV fixtures.
On the club’s smaller stage, Rolight installed 26 Chauvet DJ Intimidator Spot 155 units. Positioned in a grid formation to provide the stage with sufficient coverage and eye candy, the fixtures form the central visual element.
Perhaps most important of the venue’s considerations was for international touring bands and technicians to feel comfortable with the rigs in both venues, and be able to quickly adapt their set to the stage. Thanks to the rider-compatible setup of the Chauvet fixtures, the venue can cater to all levels of touring bands.
