Michael Meacham Creates “Pixel Ambience” with  Chauvet EPIX Fixtures at Osaka NightclubOSAKA, Japan – In designing the lighting for Vanity Osaka nightclub, LD Michael Meacham made creative use of wide structural columns in the center of the dance floor. He used Chauvet's EPIX 2.0 bars and EPIX 2.0 strips along with some adroit pixel mapping to incorporate them into his design. He also built EPIX 2.0 bars into the wall behind the DJ booth, added five configurations of 32 EPIX 2.0 strips each on the ceiling and positioned EPIX 2.0 strips behind the frosted glass in the VIP area. The LD accented the EPIX lighted columns with 20 Intimidator Spot LED 350 moving fixtures from Chauvet DJ in four groups of five. Meacham’s design utilizes the motorized focus of the Intimidator Spots to project crisp gobos over the dance floor.
