In Taibao City, Taiwan, a Southern Branch of the National Palace Museum has opened, driving cultural, educational, social and economical development to both northern and southern regions of Taiwan. To commemorate its inauguration, Aurora Lighting was called in to overview the design, and local distributor Jackson Yu of DLHG, to offer project support to the job.
A total of 61 fixtures were used, including 20x Fine Art 230 BEAM, 16x Fine Art 1500 Spot, 20x Studio Due City Color and 5x PASP 4K SKYBEAM luminaires. Controlling these automated fixtures was an MA2 Full-size and 4x W-DMX™ BLACKBOX F-1 units.
To enhance the important landscape surrounding the building, the lighting display for the opening ceremony took place by the lake side, which created a barrier between control and lighting rig: “We got worried about DMX runs until we realised DLHG were W-DMX™’s distributor in Taiwan!” said Scotty Chen of Aurora Lighting. “Jackson explained us the intricacies of this Wireless systems, including the data-safe technology, which adds redundant packs of DMX data to the transmission. “The system worked flawlessly” added Chen.
“The furthest distance between transmitter and receiver was 250 meters”, commented Jackson Yu, who’s been distributing W-DMX™ since 2013. “Whilst we spent 2 days setting up the lighting, the Wireless system took 2 minutes!” added Yu. When dealing with distances like this, W-DMX™ stands out from the competition and adds Invisi-Wire technology: it deals with DMX frame characteristics such as the break, mark after break, interslot timings and slot count parameters and recreates them exactly as they came in at the transmitter side. This increases the signal’s fidelity and makes W-DMX™ the most reliable system on the market.
Niclas Arvidsson, CEO of Wireless Solution Sweden, added a remark: “We are not popular by chance: users like Aurora and DLHG trust us for our technology and support, and their confidence means that more people are moving from cable to wireless technology. We loved to hear about this project, and hope to see many more”.
