vol-banditThe University of Tennessee Volunteers roar back
USA - The University of Tennessee Volunteers roared into the football season defeating the Ball State Cardinals 59-10. Bandit Lites lighting director Alex Becker programmed a light show, integrating pattern washes on the field, movement chases and colour washes on the stands and field.
Bandit Lites provided Elation Proteus Maximus, two wireless solution black box for wireless DMX for fixtures across the stadium and a Chamsys Magic Q MQ500.
“I utilised the framing shutters on the Proteus Maximus to create the Power “T” at the top of the show and to highlight the VOLS spell out at the end of the halftime show,” said Becker, who shared the Elation Proteus Maximus fixtures were chosen for their high output and IP65 Rating.
“VOL nation is already the largest, loudest and most energetic stadium in the country and were enhancing it even more by adding a better fan experience with light shows,” finished Becker. “I believe lighting keeps the fans engaged throughout the whole game, and I believe we are doing something that no other school is doing. Yes, almost every stadium has the field lights that chase, but I don’t think anyone is doing programmed light shows prior to kick off or during halftime.”
The lighting continued into the night as the fixtures were also used to light the crowd during the game, the field during timeouts, the moments following PAT’s and other performances/chants during the game.
“Being a Tennessee graduate and an active part of many boards and organisations it is the right thing to do to take this environment to the next level,” says Bandit chair Michael T. Strickland.
