This summer, the centennial celebration of Cleveland Metroparks featured fireworks, events, and activities honoring the past and celebrating the future of Cleveland’s green urban landscapes. On a July evening, city dignitaries hosted a gala event which included dazzling outdoor lighting, supplied by ILC, and controlled by W-DMX wireless devices.
“We utilized our new W-DMX G5 units to drive data for Elation Q5 Volt fixtures,” explains Renee Herbert, Business Development Executive at ILC. “The event took place in the Brookside Reservation and was host to over 500 dignitaries and supporters of the Cleveland Metroparks. Around the event’s entrance area, we utilized 50 fixtures to light trees and foliage in Cleveland Metroparks’ green and gold colors. The W-DMX units transmitted reliable data over 500 feet and ran consistently for several hours. This project had none of the technical complications that we typically see when running a wide area wireless DMX system. We’ll definitely be depending on W-DMX G5 again.”
