Here is a short video of the test. The beams you see are the new Elation Platinum Beams (15R). The other lights are less visible in the video as they are washing sidewalks near each column. Building wash lights are next along with gobo projectors.
The wireless system for programmed lights along 4th Street (I mean Santa Clause Lane) worked perfectly last night during our first test of the 4 block wireless DMX system for tomorrow nights Light Up Louisville. It’s a good thing that Plan A worked because Plan B was...make Plan A work! We have over 150 lights controlled with Wireless DMX running the length of 4 city blocks. We used existing power from street light poles to power both the wireless system and the lights themselves. The system worked and we were able to control all the lights wirelessly. Thousands of hours went into the planning and now execution of this ambitious plan. After seeing what was accomplished in year one of the re-envisioned “Light Up Louisville & 40 Nights of Lights”, were even more excited about what this idea will evolve into in coming years.
