The 8th successive year of the famous ARMAGEDDON darts tournament featured all-important stage lighting by SES Technical – featuring cutting edge fixtures by high quality market leaders such as Avolites, Chauvet, Robe, Lanta and smoke and pyrotechnic effects by Le Maitre.
ARMAGEDDON, an event run by MDA Promotions, again took place at Hermitage Leisure Centre in Leicestershire. Famous names from the world of darts included former world champions Martin Adams and Gary Anderson, Dave Chisnall and Dean Winstanley.
SES Technical provided the lighting design, project management, installation and operation throughout the lively and fast moving event.
Lighting was of paramount importance for ARMAGEDDON: high quality fixtures that added clarity, excitement and ambience to the event were essential.
The Avolites Tiger Touch II console. This third-generation console (pictured below) is packed with enough power for complex shows, yet small and light enough to fly in standard hold luggage. The console features SMPTE timecode support and a redesigned button layout to match the entire Titan range.
The console was running the new Titan V10 OS. One of the most striking additions is the full 3D visualiser powered by the Capture engine, which allows the user to create and edit shows right inside the Titan interface and lay out fixtures in the space using the console’s encoder wheels.
Chauvet Professional Q-Wash 560Z-LED. An RGBWA moving yoke wash with a wide zoom range and a variable beam angle. It powers out an impressive 13,100 lux at 5 meters. It boasts 91 high intensity and calibrated red, green, blue, amber and white LEDs to ensure a uniform wash, excellent color rendering and a vast color palette of soft pastels and vivid hues.
Chauvet SlimPAR Pro H USB. SlimPAR Pro H USB is designed for any application that calls for a high-power, low-profile LED washlight with precise colors. Features include D-Fi USB compatibility for wireless control. SlimPAR Pro H USB has no moving parts and is flicker-free so it is ideal for quiet and on-camera applications.
