Bulgaria - The new International Congress Centre Burgas (ICCB) on the Black Sea coast of Bulgaria has installed an Elation lighting system in its largest event space designed and delivered by Elation Professional’s Bulgarian distributor, ProAudio.
The city of Burgas is an industrial, transport, cultural and tourist centre, and a natural location for an international conference centre. ICCB with its variety of event spaces, transportation access and nearby first-class hotels, fulfills that role. The modernly equipped complex houses six different spaces including three main event halls used for conferences, exhibitions, concerts, television broadcasts, gala dinners and more.
Building designers ATM Architects chose distributor, ProAudio to develop audio, video and stage lighting solutions for the venue. In the centre’s largest space, the 500-capacity Chernomorie Hall, ProAudio designed a lighting system that was not only flexible to cover the great variety of events the centre hosts, but also one that projects a high quality of light, a standard reflective of the venue and especially helpful when broadcast cameras are involved.
ProAudio chose and delivered a package of Elation white light and color-changing luminaires, and also handled system integration. The system was created in collaboration with production company SEG, a leading company in the Bulgarian event technology industry who often use the congress centre when organising services for clients.
The Chernomorie Hall lighting system includes warm-white LED Fresnels from Elation’s KL series, both KL Fresnel 8 and KL Fresnel 6 lights.
When colour is required, Fuze PAR Z175 fixtures with RGBW COB LED engine can provide full-colour washes. More colour comes from Colour Chorus 48 battens useful for floodlighting surfaces and stages in a variety of even dynamic washes. These are supplemented by Smarty Hybrid CMY colour mixing moving heads whose full-featured design includes plenty of colour and graphics options.
Lighting system control comes from an NX2 lighting console by Obsidian Control Systems. The fully integrated NX2 was a recommendation from rental companies that are expected to take part in activities at the venue.
Alexander Petkov, public area department head at ICCB comments, “Everything was precisely integrated and we achieved first-class quality service. It was a pleasure for us to work with the ProAudio team and have been impressed by their professional attitude towards us as clients.”
