Successful baptism of fire for zactrack at the Studio 44
The automated spotlight operation system zactrack was used live at the TRENDventure 06 for the very first time. At the event of the Austrian lotteries and casinos it lit up the premises of Studio 44.
During the whole afternoon new trends in brand development, marketing and product design were being presented to trade visitors in a moderated show. Presenters and models were entering via catwalk across the auditorium stage.
The automated light tracking came into play for the moderator of the show, Mr. Thomas Nagy. He could move freely across the studio during the whole event thanks to the zactrack transponder, which was merely the size of a mobile phone. The position of the transponder was recorded by eight directional antennas 300 times per second and relayed to the zactrack DMX-control-unit, which in turn operated four spotlight moving heads with pinpoint accuracy. Thus, Mr. Nagy was at the intersection of the spotlight cones at any given moment. The proper lighting atmosphere was created, as before, using the studio-owned lighting desk Wholedog II.
The development team of zkoor is very pleased with the successful performance of its system and is thankful to the team of Studio 44 for their generous support.
Further installations at renowned stages across Vienna are to follow in the course of summer 2006.
