Corona: Elation rig lights new virtual live space

Livestream performance producers VYE have collaborated with Clair Global and production company Genetic Productions to create a pay-per-view livestream performance space at Clair Global’s facility in Nashville.


“We wanted to give fans everything they’re used to seeing at a concert with moving lights, video walls, etc. and blend that with video streaming and a multi-camera setup for broadcast”, states Danny Zacharias of VYE, who designed lighting for the livestream space using gear from Elation Professional and sister company ADJ.


Zacharias worked with Genetic Productions, now part of PTP Live, to secure lights and video gear while audio specialists Clair Global provided the space while handling the audio side and internet backend needed to support a streaming space.


Darien Koop, programmer and lighting director on the project, lent his expertise in broadcast lighting to bridge the balance between a concert look and one more appropriate for the camera. Directing in terms of overall color temperature, Koop will adjust to colder Kelvin looks on fixtures across the rig when changing from a concert to a studio look.


The 36 ft. wide by 24 ft. deep space is bordered with video panels on three sides. Fulfilling the role as the main profile fixture are 13 Artiste DaVinci LED moving heads. Twenty-four narrow-beam Dartz 360 LED movers wrap the stage to work from all around the room. They also help fill any negative space when the space is used for studio clients.


ACL Curtain LED battens serve a dual purpose, as traditional footlights for low light looks and for texture in camera shots from positions across the back edge and fronting risers. Filling holes with pixel effects or used to wash artists from sidelight positions are Chorus Line 16 pixel bars while WW Profile LED ellipsoidals are used as Lekos for frontlight. Cuepix Blinder WW2s punch out white light effects when needed. Populating the rig from ADJ are Hex Panel IPs for background eye candy looks, as well as Encore FR150Z white light Fresnels.


Clair Global’s Virtual Live Audience technology allows artists to interact with hundreds of their fans on video panels around the room. Surrounding the video panels are ACL 360i single-beam movers used to give midair texture. The lighting designer used Capture software to visualize his design, a lighting design package that he’s used exclusively for years.
