CHAUVET® Professional Lights Another Season of Idol Puerto Rico

chauvet-pridol-web1.jpg SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — CHAUVET® Professional is once again the choice for a new season of Idol Puerto Rico show, which airs at 8 p.m. on Mondays on WAPA-TV Canal 4, one of the most viewed TV stations on the island. Having opted for CHAUVET® Professional SparkliteLED™ Drape backdrop drapes for the show’s first season, Lighting Designer David Ayala specified more than 70 CHAUVET® Professional fixtures for the current one, including the drapes that he uses as base for his design. Musique Xpress of Puerto Rico provided the luminaires.

chauvet-pridol-web2.jpg “With these drapes I managed to build the most important layer of my design for the television set,” Ayala said of the 10 CHAUVET® Professional SparkliteLED™ Drape fixtures, which are fully controllable and expandable tri-color LED star field drapes, measuring nearly 20 feet by 13 feet. “They were my base for color, and furthermore, they played an important role in the scenography.”

chauvet-pridol-web3.jpg For downlighting, Ayala placed 24 CHAUVET® Professional Q-Wash™ 260-LED moving heads in four sections of six fixtures each, on truss above the stage. Eight Q-Spot™ 560-LED powerful moving yokes shoot bright beams from the floor, placed four symmetrically, on each side of the stage, under the side video wall sections. Eight CHAUVET® Professional Legend™ 412 pixel-mapping moving yokes, four on each side of the center stage video screen, shine on the stage. “I am very pleased with the performance of the Q-Wash™ 260-LED fixtures, which are fast, compact and bright. And equally impressed with the Legend™ 412 and Q-Spot™ 560-LED lights,” Ayala said.

Six CHAUVET® DJ Impulse™ 648 strobe lights work fully on from the floor next to the CHAUVET® Professional Q-Spot™ 560-LED moving head fixtures, including one strobe light on Stage B, adjacent to the stage, as TV light. Four CHAUVET® Professional COLORado™ 1 VW Tour wash fixtures light the backstage and outdoor shots of participants visiting hometowns or signing autographs.
