Sterling Event Group are excited to announce their latest project in collaboration with The University of Chester. Lights, Camera, Action had never boasted such green credentials prior to Sterling Event Group supplying their School of Arts and Media main performance spaces with an energy efficient lighting solution upgrade as part of their exciting wider project to upgrade their lighting, power, control, and data systems.
After several years of working with The University of Chester to supplement their existing inventory of technical production stock, and an opportunity arising for them to proceed with their highly anticipated studio upgrades, Sterling Event Group were called in to provide their support. Their technical expertise and over 20 years’ experience within the industry enabled them to provide extensive guidance on the array of fixture options available to them. From the outset they worked closely with The University of Chester’s Technical Team Leader to devise a solution for the two studios (to be used for dance, drama, live music performances and conferences) that encompassed energy saving and production quality enhancing properties.
“They were able to provide advice on a range of fixture options and also presented a very competitive quote, arranging prompt delivery to meet our limited timescale.” said Colin Blanchard, Technical Team Leader, The University of Chester.
For Sterling Event Group, Chauvet were an obvious manufacturer of choice to execute this install as “with over 400 Chauvet fixtures in our rental stock we were confident to put a Chauvet option forward and could share our experience with their performance, reliability and support.” said Dan Charmer, Director, Sterling Event Group.
The final solution truly exhibited the advances in technology that the industry has seen in recent years and saw the delivery of a full move to LED for the main studio, new install to a second smaller studio, and additional loose kit. Across the two performance studios loads were cut from roughly 39KW to just 10KW (when all lights are set to white); whilst maintenance costs were also reduced, the user experience streamlined, and almost endless colour options provided.
The Chauvet Professional Equipment used included:
- Maverick MK2 Profiles
- Ovation F-915FC Fresnels
- Ovation E-910FC Profiles
- Ovation P-56FC Pars
