LONDON – Bringing dazzle to one of London's most high-profile venues, Storm Events used Chauvet's EPIX 2.0 to achieve a glittering pixel-mapping effect. “We joined all of the EPIX units end-to-end in twos, and spaced them at 250mm across the set,” said Production Director Andy White, noting that a total of 80 strips and bars were used.  “Our design alternated strips and bars back and forth with the strips set slightly higher than the bars to create a 2.3m high continuous image.  Using Kling-Net we were able to map the entire image in about 30 minutes.”
