If CHAUVET® has its way, this year’s LDI attendees will get “infected”, the theme around which the lighting manufacturer is building its presentation spanning 2,500-square-feet of the trade show floor.
“Admittedly, we have a love affair with light—light fixtures, light design and lighting in general. Lighting is infectious. Our LDI presentation will seek to convey this with a dark nod to Halloween, which is the same weekend,” Berenice Chauvet, vice president of CHAUVET® said.
The creative team of CHAUVET® enlisted the help of lighting designer Chris Lisle, most recently involved in the Miranda Lambert tour, and Scott Chmielewski, president of Digital Media Designs and a programmer for Phish, to helm the controls and video integration that evokes this fascination of spreading infectious light.
Over 300 CHAUVET® MVP™ video panels will be interlocked into a large-scale wall framing out the booth on three sides to create an immersive experience for guests. Against that backdrop, a spider truss design with a rig of nearly 200 fixtures, to include the premiering COLORado™ Zoom Tour static wash lights and Legend™ 412 LED moving yokes, will loom large over the center of the booth. At the floor level, an “infected” runway will be flanked by Q-Wash™ 560Z LED moving heads and the new revolutionary Epix™ Series of pixel mapping fixtures running ArKaos’ debuting Kling-Net protocol.
Devoted to the CHAUVET® Professional line of fixtures, the center booth is flanked by two smaller ones, one dedicated to the CHAUVET® DJ line and another to its sister architectural lighting company, ILUMINARC®.
“I’m really looking forward to putting on a great show at the CHAUVET® booth at LDI,” Lisle said. “I’ve become a big fan of their products and their new lights are going to make this show a lot of fun to work on.”
The three booths combined display nearly 700 fixtures, across the three lines. CHAUVET® seeks to make an indelible impression on attendees and demonstrate its stake in the entertainment lighting market, CEO Albert Chauvet said.
“LDI is the biggest trade show for the lighting industry in the United States, and therefore one of the most important to CHAUVET®,” Albert Chauvet, CEO of CHAUVET® and ILUMINARC® said. “It gives us the chance to bring a number of forward-thinking products to the marketplace, as well as the chance to inspire our many customers, to thank them for their patronage and share our plans for the future.”
