‘Converting a venue from conventional to LED lighting is always a challenge’
Belgium - ETC’s Source Four LED Series 3 fixtures have been selected to upgrade the Cultural Centre (CC) in Koksijde.
The popular centre has state-of-the-art facilities in its theatre and concert hall which regularly host a variety of performances including dance productions, comedy shows, arthouse film screenings and more. ETC dealer FACE led the successful installation of the fixtures at the venue with account manager Koen Ceulemans and team, alongside head technician at the CC Miguel Rooms and his technical team.
The CC previously used conventional tungsten lighting and made the change to LED lighting as part of a plan to reduce their environmental impact by 75%. The upgrade to the space includes 63 Source Four LED Series 3 fixtures placed Front of House alongside 40 ColorSource PARs and additional CYC fixtures to create beautiful smooth washes to enhance the stage lighting.
"Converting a venue from conventional to LED lighting is always a challenge - you have to consider the unique technical needs and restrictions of the building. In addition to this, you also have to consider the travelling theatre companies visiting the theatre as the transition to LED has to be an added value for them as well. We are always aiming to make this transition as smooth and easy as possible and were able to do so with ETC lighting equipment at the CC,” comments Koen Ceulemans from FACE.
Miguel Rooms also expressed his enthusiasm for the newly installed lighting fixtures: "The output of these fixtures is truly unparalleled, and the colour rendering is also very powerful. Source Four LED Series 3 was the most efficient choice for our venue and the fixtures have been very well received."
With wireless DMX/RDM and NFC technology built-in along with ETC’s innovative Set Light app, the team at the CC also benefit from ease of use and convenience as they control the lighting devices directly from their smartphones.
ETC market manager Tania Lesage comments: “The Cultural Centre of Koksijde has earned a reputation for its technical excellence and high standards and we are delighted that ETC's Source Four LED Series 3 product line has been chosen to upgrade the space. The fixtures were selected for their exceptional power, quality, and colour technology which has greatly enhanced the venue's capabilities. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the talented lighting team: Miguel Rooms, Fabrice Coppens, Aaron Jonckheere, and Ward Seru, for their hospitality and valuable contributions to this project.”
Following several successful shows since the upgrade with ETC fixtures, audiences will be able to see even more performances at the Belgian Cultural Centre after the summer break.
