CHAUVET® Professional Lights Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber

chauvet-jingle-ball-1-web.jpg LOS ANGELES, Calif. — CHAUVET® Professional Nexus™ 4x4 wash lights flawlessly performed next to top singers such as Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber during the two-day Jingle Ball concert produced by KIIS-FM radio station at the Nokia Theater. As preeminent fixtures in the show, 16 Nexus™ 4x4 bold, eye-candy wash lights accompanied artists like OneRepublic, Ne-Yo, Ellie Goulding, Jonas Brothers, Ke$ha, Sammy Adams, Flo Rida and more.

Visions Lighting’s Brandon Dunning was the house lighting designer for the show, and part of the team that came up with the successful design.

chauvet-jingle-1a-web.jpg Lighting Director for OneRepublic Erik Parker recognized the great performance of the Nexus™ 4x4 on stage. "These panels allow for great versatility with their bright RGB LEDs and the pixel-mapping capabilities,” Parker said. “Nexus™ 4x4 is an awesome fixture with tons of options for uses."

Echoing Parker’s comment, Roberts said he simply loved Nexus™ 4x4. “I like that it is capable of pixel mapping and the fact that it’s not just an effect light. I think it features great output and superior lenses, and it’s powerful enough to get creative and use it in different ways.”
