USA - Everyday, millions of people around the world get on cycles, pedal diligently, and go nowhere. They aren’t complaining though. Indoor cycling (or spinning), where participants in group sessions pedal stationary bikes with flywheels under the watchful eye of a trainer, has taken off like a rocket, passing running and swimming as a fitness activity in the US, according to a recent Nielsen Survey. A key reason why cycling centres are powering their way into the hearts of so many people is because they offer immersive multi-sensory experiences that make it fun to stay fit.
Platinum Sound Light and Video is using a customised audio, music and lighting system to create this type of engaging atmosphere at an international indoor cycling chain. Colour changing Iluminarc Logic Tri-4, circular RGB fixtures controlled with a Logic 4x36 DMX unit, are providing the chain with the type of dynamic lighting environment that keeps indoor cyclists pumped up.
“Currently, we’ve installed the Iluminarc fixtures in over 100 of the indoor cycle centres and will be adding them to a projected 300+ future locations,” said Caleb Seastrunk, general manager of Platinum Sound Light Video. “The vivid colours and smooth colour changes we get from the Iluminarc fixtures are critical to creating the right kind of setting for our client’s customers. Not only are the colours bright, they’re also realistic, which encourages people to get caught up in the moment when they are at the cycling centre.”
Platinum is arranging 17 of the Logic Tri-4 units around the cycling dome at the centres, which have up to 55 stationary cycles. This surrounds cyclists with an immersive field of light. “Our client uses custom chase sequences and solid colors of light to reflect and change moods,” said Seastrunk.
