W-DMX™ by Wireless Solution once again played an important role in the recent Lights in Alingsås event in Sweden. The event is Northern Europe’s largest lighting workshop in public spaces, this year attracting a record 87,622 visitors.
Once a year, leading lighting designers and companies are invited to Alingsås to demonstrate their expertise, attend networking events and hold workshops. For five weeks, the dark evenings of Sweden are transformed into beautiful lighting installations around the town.
The theme for Lights in Alingsås 2015 was ‘The Evolution of Light’, from the big bang to the present age, with a specific focus on how new technologies such as LED can help reduce the environmental impact. W-DMX was used to demonstrate the elimination of excess cable.
Lighting designers Bertil Göransson and Johan Moritz from the company Luxera were responsible for the installations, three of which used W-DMX: The Living Room under the highway with Workshop Head Reinhardt Gerber, using 1 W-DMX WhiteBox F-1 G4 Transmitter to control 24 Aster AX-3 fixtures; The rhythm of flames with Workshop Head Vivid Katarina Henning, using 1 W-DMX WhiteBox F-1 G4 Transmitter and 1 Receiver for one SGM –Spot, sending the signal to the other end of the site; and Yin & Yang with Workshop Head Andrea Hartranft, using 1 W-DMX WhiteBox F-1 G4 Transmitter and 1 Receiver for sending the signal over a street.
”When it comes to technology and the use of the Wireless Solution W-DMX system,” said Margareta Starmark, project manager for the Lights in Alingsås workshops, “It went very smoothly during installation and worked flawlessly during the entire event, so we are very happy.”
Niclas Arvidsson, CEO of Wireless Solution said, “Wireless Solution has worked with Lights in Alingsås in the past 3 years with great results. We were especially happy that the focus this year was on using products that help reduce the carbon footprint of traditional lighting. The WhiteBox series is our weatherproof, IP-65 rated solution for architectural and entertainment projects that seek a green alternative. The reaction was very positive.”
