New York Public Library
Brought in by the AV Systems integrator Shadowbox Design Management, Inc. handled the theatrical and architectural lighting as well as the drapery and rigging portion of the installation. This was part of a total project overhaul to help the auditorium keep pace with the growing demands placed on it by the cultural scene in its community. The client was very interested in replacing the older incandescent fixtures with LED products because of the cost and energy savings. Of course, in addition to these advantages, they’re also getting much better performance from their lighting system as a result of the features built in to these fixtures. Four of the Rogue RH Hybrid fixtures and seven of the COLORado Batten units were istalled around the auditorium’s stage. The Rouges were run over the stage to provide eye candy beam lighting as well as spotlighting. The ultra-intense output of the units (110,000 lux and 15 meters) helps create a professional touring environment in the auditorium, while the fixture’s unique prism layering feature allows more intricate looks to be added to the stage lighting.
