When you are out clubbing with your friends, do you ever wish that the night would never end? Wish that you didn't have to worry about how to get back home afterwards? Wish the music, the lights, and all your friends could follow you to your house? Well that is exactly how one of our clients felt. He wanted to have a Vegas style mini-club in his guest-house overlooking the pool. This was exactly the sort of project we knew we wouldn't pass up in a lifetime.
The first feature of this miniature nightclub that immediately grabs your attention is the intricate geometric ceiling, built of over 300 feet of Firefly Floppy Flex LED tape laid into a tiered ceiling. This product is made to replicate the look of neon-signs, and looks INCREDIBLE as effects dance across the entire ceiling. Recessed Gantom RGBW fixtures set throughout the pattern and into the surrounding ceiling provide a colorful glow to the room that shifts and pulses along with the neon pattern.
Across two of the nightclub walls stretch over twenty five feet of Chauvet Video F3 Panels, creating a screen 2048 pixels wide. This array runs on a NovaStar processor, which in turn is provided content by Avolites Ai. Ai also provides content for the Floppy Flex ceiling, ensuring that the colors throughout the room always compliment one another.
Overall control is provided by an Avolites TitanNet Processor, which controls the Gantom fixture array, as well as several Martin MH10 Beam FX's, Rush Scanner 1 LED's, and Rush Par 3 RGBs. The TNP also controls Ai, dimmer circuits for practical fixtures in the club and patio, and even the breaker panel providing power throughout the club, allowing individual breakers to be turned off remotely once the party is done in the early hours of the morning.
In order for the client to control this unique room of his house, we programmed an intuitive API integration to the TNP, allowing a tablet to access the lighting system as a touch-screen controller. From here, one can pull up pre-set color pallets, as well as activate playbacks containing pre-programmed shows containing synchronized video wall and ceiling pattern content, together with complimentary moving-light effects and eye-candy.
In total, there are well over one thousand pixels of control throughout the ceiling of this mini-club, over twenty five feet of video wall, and an almost unthinkable amount of cables for such a small room hidden away within the walls and ceiling. The overall look is incredible, and we couldn't be more proud of the results of this project!
