Schnick Schnack Systems Gives The Voice an Accent

Schnick Schnack Systems LED Accent Lighting literally spins with the hot seats on NBC’s The Voice!  Chosen by designer Oscar Dominguez of Darkfire Lighting Design, Schnick Schnack Systems’ quality, camera-friendly, calibrated colors light the triangular podium on the front of each judge’s chair.  Naturally, whenever a critical red decision button is pushed, the LEDs behind the Plexiglas podium change colors and the chair spins around.

“The system consists of 42 10” LED S-Strips and 14 5” LED S-Strips, all driven by a Schnick Schnack Systems Long Distance (LD) Controller,” states Melanie Lekaj of TMB Sales.  “All in all it proved to be a trouble-free installation and was easily integrated into the show’s DMX control system.”  Melanie adds, “That’s the beauty of the Schnick Schnack system; it’s specifically designed to be 100% color consistent and reliable, and it is very easy to install, patch and program in stage sets of all kinds.”

Schnick Schnack Systems strips used on The Voiceare ideal for backlighting set elements such as stairs, edging strips and translucent surfaces or for accentuating set edges and profiles.  They can be used as a backlight with only 3-inch clearance from the backlit material, creating a harmonious blending of the individual LEDs within a strip.  Without diffusion material in front, they can also be used as a low-resolution LED video matrix for direct flicker-free viewing.  

Made in Germany, Schnick Schnack Systems offers a full range of professional quality LED products:  Strips, Tiles, and Panels in a variety of control types, sizes, and pixel pitches, along with a selection of power supplies, interfaces, controllers, and software.  Multiple product levels suit any size installation and any budget.  Compact, modular, and easy to use for quick installation and removal, the extremely flexible systems include a variety of mounting options.  High-bin LEDs, unique color-calibration, and special dimmer curve for TV cameras ensure quality and consistency of color, intensity, and luminosity across the entire range.
