Madame Tussauds Installs BRICKBLASTER Pro Compact LED Fixtures in Las Vegas
Hidden and Track Mounted BRICKBLASTER Pros Provide the Perfect Lighting in the World's Most Famous Wax Museum
Amesbury, MA. - May 21, 2012 - For the redesign of the lobby and entryway at Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas, Herrick Goldman, of HG Lighting Design (Brooklyn, NY), required a compact yet powerful LED fixture. The BRICKBLASTER Pro RGBW and WWCW were selected due to their compact size, high intensity output and theatrical grade DMX512 dimming. At 4” cubed, and an amazing 50 watts, the BRICKBLASTER Pro can fit into places most fixtures can't.
The compact size of the BRICKBLASTER Pro allowed the fixtures to fit into hidden alcoves throughout the lobby while track mounted fixtures were utilized in the main hallway, which has an extremely low ceiling height of 8 feet. Additionally, variable color temperature white BRICKBLASTERs were used to illuminate the main entryway and the Madame Tussauds logo, as task lighting for the ticket counter and to provide the main source of lighting for use by the staff photographers.
The lobby at Madame Tussauds boasts a “paparazzi” theme and Herrick strategically programmed the fixtures to wash the area in red light while the white channel of the RGBW fixtures strobes to simulate camera flashes. Additional fixtures were hidden and are used to generate ambiance in the space.
"We installed the WWCWs at the box office. This area is open to daylight on two sides and we have recently needed to reprogram the fixtures for a dimmer setting as the employees complained that they were too bright", explains Herrick.
The BRICKBLASTER Pro RGBW contains red, green, blue and white LEDs to allow it to generate saturated colors along with pastel and white light tones and the WWCW allows for dynamic color temperature adjustment from 2800 to 6500 kelvin. The BRICKBLASTER series can be mounted using c-clamps, directly to most standard 120VAC track or to DMX data track (which provides full speed DMX512 control and power in a single track). The BRICKBLASTER series is ideal for use in entertainment applications along with themed environment, club, museum, studio and architectural installations.
