The Green-GO system has already gone out on international artist tours in Australia
Australia - Live entertainment supplier Chameleon Touring Systems has upgraded its communications solution from an old analogue party line system to a Green-GO digital package, to aid reliable communications between lighting teams on tour.
Green-GO dealer Event Communications Australia masterminded Chameleon Touring’s investment, drawing on extensive experience of digital communications solutions for the live music touring market.
“Chameleon’s previous comms systems were based around a basic single channel, analogue party line system which were starting to be less reliable, so it was time to update to current technology,” says Event Communications Australia’s Rod McKinnon. “We worked closely with Graham Walker at Chameleon Touring to curate a kit list of Green-GO products that we knew would offer clear, easy-to-use communications for the lighting crew working on upcoming tours that Chameleon were supplying. Chameleon Touring doesn’t supply talkback systems for their end clients, but they find it essential for their lighting teams, so they have reliable and consistent communications between all lighting personnel.”
The Green-GO system has already gone out on international artist tours in Australia, including The Killers, K Pop, and the most recent Lizzo tour. The Green-GO products now in Chameleon’s stock include 16 x Green-GO BPX wired beltpacks with 16 x Green-GO HS200D Dual muff headsets; two Green-GO SW8.1 PoE Switches and one Green-GO Interface-X.
Chameleon’s Graham Walker comments: “The technology, flexibility and simplicity of the system is what attracted us to Green-GO initially. One of the big draw cards was the fact there is no need for a comms matrix or master station, just a network switch, which means there is not one single point of failure, as the configuration lives on the beltpacks.
“The scalability of the product was also very appealing. It is very quick and easy to configure the system and then make changes when required to adapt to the evolving needs and budget of a show or tour.”
The Chameleon team is busy planning to use their Green-GO kit on upcoming tours for The Chicks, Sam Smith, Il Divo and Def Leppard/Mötley Crüe.
