From June 4 to July 4, 2015, VALOOK worked with customer Icardi Producciones to light the Costanera Center Tower for America´s Soccer Cup. Icardi Lighting Designer Toni Amoros washed the building with 4kW searchlights displaying the color of the teams that were playing. Clay Paky Mythos projected a gobo onto the building and when a team scored, they projected the word “GOOOOOL”. DMX signal was sent using W-DMX WhiteBox units.

During Christmas, VALOOK also worked with Icardi using W-DMX on another stunning temporary installation on the Costanera Center Tower. LD Toni Amoros painted the tower in Christmas colors and the beautiful work could be seen from all of Santiago. At nine o´clock each evening for 15 days, the show started and lasted 15 minutes. Crowds of people joined around the tower to see it.

W-DMX was used to send signal to the 44 Xenon 4kW Searchlights providing the color. Valdivia explained, “The biggest challenge for this project was to send signal to the top floor of this building over 300 metres high and distribute it to 4 points around the building through high-traffic streets. We used 6 W-DMX WhiteBox F1 G4 2.4 GHz, 2 WhiteBox F2 G4 2.4Ghz, 6 directional antennas 8db and 2 directional antennas 5db for the 6 points of reception and transmission. Everything worked perfectly and without interference or signal loss.”

He adds, “In both events W-DMX was a great solution, especially for the America´s Soccer Cup because they had to send the signal from the top floor of the building where the control was located to the lights that were located on the street. For both installations, W-DMX worked to perfection and made these projects possible.” 

Niclas Arvidsson, CEO of Wireless Solution added, “Working with VALOOK is always interesting – they do a wide variety of projects which showcase their clients beautifully. We’re always looking to see what they’ll do next. They’re doing a great job in Chile together with their production partners to build the trust in Wireless DMX technology and work without DMX Cables.
