LED Stage Lighting Upgrade

Mount Tamborine State High School

The team at PLS performed a LED stage lighting upgrade of Mount Tamborine State High School's Theatre space. The staff and students were ecstatic with the upgrade as their arts night was coming up and they could showcase their brand new equipment in a spectacular fashion (as seen in the photos below).

All existing traditional hot-light and dimmers were removed from the stage at the request of the school, who were keen to embrace new LED technology and keep everything streamlined and simple for every occasion.

A full compliment of ProShop Hex 7 LED fixtures now provides vibrant colour wash options from both front of house and over-stage. 5 x ProShop LED Cyc100 Fixtures provide strong colour intensity and coverage to the fabric cyclorama, which is mounted on a retractable stretch frame for a clean, taught surface. 5 x Chauvet Spot Intimidator 355Z IRC LED Profile Moving Lights and 
2 x Chauvet Iimdator LED Zoom 450 Wash Moving Lights provide areas of special focus on and off the stage plus some great special effects to keep things interesting. A versatile Jands Vista Lighting Control System with M1 Fader Board and a Jands Power Distribution System add the finishing touches to the new LED lighting installation.

The Audio System has also been given an overhaul, relocating existing JBL Control 29 Speakers to Front of House positions, complimented by a small JBL Powered Subwoofer under-stage and a pair of JBL EON612 powered monitors. Sennheiser Evolution G3100 Series Wireless Microphones plus Shure PG81 Condensor Microphones now provide greater flexibility to live audio reinforcement for the space.

Subsequently, the school decided to carry out an Audio-Visual Upgrade to provide strong theming for events.  This included brighter images onto screens left & right of stage plus the introduction of a new on-stage installation projector to provide backdrops and moving images onto the taught cyclorama cloth at the rear of stage.  This system not only dramatically enhances aesthetics of the stage for presentation events, but provides a myriad of opportunities for scene-setting at future performing arts showcases and drama productions.  The school now boasts a dazzling, colourful and exciting stage to compliment the talent of their student cohort.
