Ireland - The INEC Killarney has recently purchased an Avolites Arena console as part of a major upgrade to the venue's house lighting rig and control system.
The sale of the British manufacturer's largest and latest lighting console was made by Avolites' accredited UK reseller A.C. Entertainment Technologies (AC-ET) who worked with the INEC Killarney to supply the new house rig and control network.
"The INEC Killarney has just installed over 100 ProLights LED moving heads and static LED fixtures, plus a full conventional rig featuring ETC and ARRI units," says the venue's house lighting designer, Kieran Somers. "We needed a console that had the power and processing ability to run the new system. Often, I have to design full lighting productions from scratch within very tight deadlines, so the console had to be intuitive to allow me to design and program effectively.
"I really like the Arena's quick-to-access interface," continues Somers. "It allows me to design and program quickly and also means I can live-control and design rapid-fire events to a very high standard."
Aaron Cripps, AC-ET's regional sales representative for Eire who dealt with the sale, says "We're pleased to be able to supply everything INEC needed, from our one-stop portfolio of entertainment technologies. We pride ourselves on offering customers a range of popular and leading brand solutions to choose from for their project - such as Avolites - to suit differing applications, technical needs and budgets."
The first artist to be supported with the INEC Killarney's new rig and control set-up was Spotify's 2016 Artist of the Year and winner of Choice Music's Song of the Year prize, Gavin James.
The venue has also hosted national and international music stars including Tom Jones, Snow Patrol, Kenny Rogers and The Script, whose lighting designer Jamie Thompson is an avid Avolites user.
