DescriptionDespite the many challenges involved, a new landmark theatre, La Balise, was able to open its doors in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis. Located on the Atlantic coast between Nantes and La Rochelle in France, La Balise is a 100 percent LED facility, offering several possible configurations ranging from 630 seated, to almost 1600 standing. The venue is equipped with 136 ETC fixtures and an Eos control solution, all carefully installed by Melpomen Groupe B-Live. The theatre is adorned with 106 Source Four LED 2 fixtures – 96 Lustr HD and 10 Tungsten HD – with an assortment of lens tubes, Fresnel adapters and CYC adapters. 30 ColorSource PARs and a compact Ion Xe console complete the lighting package.
“I was surprised to find there’s been such a leap forward in LED compared to just a few years ago. Having already looked at various luminaires, I saw the ETC fixtures in the black box demo area at the JTSE show, and it was clear to me that, in terms of color, ETC is ahead of the game in LED.” – Maxime Drouillard, Technical Director
