Party city in the desert Las Vegas has a new emblem – and what an emblem: High Roller is not just the biggest Ferris wheel in the world, but also Las Vegas’ top landmark. And as befits the city of gamblers, lovers, Elvis fans and party animals, once darkness falls, the 167m / 550 ft big wheel lights up the night with a brilliant spectrum of colours. Lighting specialists Martin Professional can claim the credit.
One of the greatest challenges was to offer visitors a unique experience from within the passenger cabins as well as from differing points and perspectives outside. Martin Professional’s Tripix range proved to be the best fit. At the time, they were the only products on the market with a converging light source, meaning the viewer sees exactly the light that the programmer intended. A classical RGB source simply wasn’t an option.
Germany's biggest New Year's Eve Party 2014 was once again held in Berlin. About a million visitors moved about between the Brandenburg Gate and the Victory Column. Music acts such as Frieda Gold, Adel Tawil and The Trans-Siberian Orchestra covered the musical section of events. The highlight of the evening was the spectacular fireworks. show. A big part of the success of the capital's mega party, however, was ROBE's eclectic event engineering.
Especially on the main stage at the Brandenburg Gate and at the party on the Strasse des 17. Juni, the spots, beams and flood lights of the Czech Republic's lighting technology producer, ROBE, were utilized. 14 Pointes were used on mobile LED wall risers for accents. 18 Pointes were attached to the roof's truss substructure, 12 additional ones were mounted in the side wings and six Pointes were mounted on the stage floor.
