MIAMI GARDENS, FL. — Chauvet Professional took on the stage during the halftime show of the 2013 Discover Orange Bowl at Sun Life Stadium and broadcasted by ESPN. Nexus 4x4 eye-candy wash lights accompanied country singer Jake Owen, who entertained the large audience as the halftime headliner.
Dallas-based Randy Taylor, lighting designer and founder of Design & Productions design and creative services company, specified 36 Chauvet Professional Nexus 4x4 pixel-mapping fixtures for the show. Taylor placed three arrays of Nexus 4x4 on stage behind Owen: a central wall of 20 fixtures, flanked by two smaller walls of two-by-four wash lights. During the entire performance, the Nexus 4x4 delivered effects and acted as audience blinders, becoming the main lighting attraction on the stage.
Nexus 4x4 has 16 x 20-watt RGB COB LEDs and features interlocking hardware to build large arrays.
For the halftime show, the Chauvet team operated the wash lights through Kling-Net control on the ArKaos Mediamaster software. The cues were triggered via DMX from the grandMA lighting console, using the Enttec DMX USB PRO hardware/software interface.
“We are thrilled that lighting designer Randy Taylor decided to use the Nexus 4x4 lights at the Orange Bowl halftime show, after seeing it in action at LDI 2012,” said DeAnna Padgett, national sales manager for Chauvet Professional. “Nexus 4x4 is a beautiful, versatile fixture that looks great in arrays and really shines in a concert setting.”
