Dynamic, pixel-mapped civic lighting on a huge scale brings a Siberian city to life
– 1 x ENTTEC LED Mapper (ELM): ENTTEC’s award-winning LED pixel-mapping software.
As the host for the 3000 athletes and 10,000 guests from across the globe for the XXIX Winter Universiade Games (2-12 March, 2019), the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk needed to create a memorable experience for its international visitors. It certainly ticked that box and will continue to do so, thanks to the permanent, dynamic illumination of a cable-stayed footbridge over the Yensei River, plus the nearby Strelka District’s Museum Center and Great Concert Hall.
Featuring more than 15,000 individually-controlled RGBW pixels, over 2,000 linear RGBW lamps and 2 LED media facades, designers Ultimatum Group and artistic engineers Pitch formed a system of more than 200 DMX universes with over 100,000 DMX addresses. The spectacular light show is mapped and controlled using ENTTEC LED Mapper (ELM).
As well as the 550m-long Vinogradovsky pedestrian bridge, the project also involved the lighting of the wonderfully Brutalist Museum Center complex (the largest exhibition platform for contemporary art in Siberia) as well as the Bolshoi concert hall of the Krasnoyarsk Philharmonic.
“ELM is simply the best pixel mapping software with automation capabilities on market. Also, it offers the best balance between price and capabilities.”
Technical Director @ Pitch
A situational analysis study selected the best observation points from which viewers could watch the lights, and the team from Pitch adjusted the show to have the greatest impact from those spots, with different shows designed for weekdays, weekends and holidays, scheduled automatically after sunset. In addition, the installed technical solution allows for operation within an ambient temperature range of -40°C to +40°C, which is essential given the Siberian climate.
