W-DMX™ made a standard in Chile

  • 21 April 2017

In early January, the International Theatre Festival of Santiago de Chile did his annual aperture, in a joint production between two artistic groups, La Potagallina and Matucana 100. The first group – under artistic direction of Martin Erazo – developed a multicultural staging called “Sin Fronteras” (“Without Borders”), where actors from different nationalities called for the integration of Latin American people from all territories.

Lighting Designer Erasmo Cubillos was tasked to light the front of the Government Palace of Chile and the staging “Sin Fronteras”, a truck carrying the musicians, and several classic cars parading with many actors.

Four WhiteBox F-1 G4S Wireless DMX transceivers were used in these show, receiving data from another WhiteBox F-1 transceiver. Each of the four cars had several LED PARs, running lighting chases, contracting with the palace in the background.

The show was assisted by Julian Vivas and Francisco Valdivia, an experienced W-DMX™ user – “The systems from Wireless Solution are incredibly easy to use, and 100% reliable – we would never choose any other”, said Francisco.

The show also featured equipment from Avolites, Claypaky Sharpy and B-Eye K10 fixtures, in a collaborative work with Iluminación Chile, Icardi and Luzmila Chile.
