Austria - Starnacht (Star Night) is one of the more popular televised live music programmes in German-speaking countries. Broadcast from Austria since 2000, the programme has several editions and is known for its diverse mix of national and international artists who perform amid a festival-like atmosphere against majestic backdrops like the Giant Ferris Wheel in Vienna or the spectacular peaks of the Alps.
Austrian-based full-service event technology supplier Droneberger Showtechnik specialises in television productions and has been lighting Starnacht shows since 2005/2006. The company, which operates from the town of Klagenfurt, sought a flexible luminaire to enhance the Starnacht stage in colour and effect and last summer purchased Elation Professional Paladin multi-effect lights to use on Starnacht am Wörthersee, Starnacht aus der Wachau and other events.
“The Paladin have played a very dominant element in Starnacht,” states Droneberger Showtechnik head Friedrich Droneberger, who handles lighting and set design for the shows and has been working on them since their inception. “We chose the Paladin because of its multiple pixel zone control. It was crucial for us that each LED segment be controlled individually so that we can customize the look across the face and pixel map video across them. Furthermore, the zoom range was crucial as was the fact that they are IP65-rated as these events are open air shows and you can always risk poor weather.”
Broadcast live on Austrian national TV channel ORF, last year’s Starnacht shows were again a big success. While this year's shows have been postponed due to COVID-19 regulations, the popular festival style music programme is set to return in 2021.
