Luminex Provides Show-Critical Networking Solution for Queensferry Crossing Bridge Reveal

Scotland – A.C. Entertainment Technologies Ltd. recently supplied Edinburgh-based rental & production company, Black Light, with Luminex GigaCore switches to provide a dual redundancy fibre network for the stunning ‘reveal’ of the new £1.35bn Queensferry Crossing bridge.

The lighting scheme, designed by event production company JMP Productions and supplied by Black Light, was switched on by First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon to commemorate the completion of one of the biggest infrastructure projects in Scotland in a generation.

With the structure spanning 1.7 miles / 2.7 kilometres over the River Forth, and the launch event attracting a huge amount of media interest, Black Light needed to ensure that the technical infrastructure for the ambitious lighting scheme performed seamlessly.

The ultra-reliable system they chose consisted of Luminex GigaCore network switches, plus 1km of fibre-optic cabling, to deliver control data to the 60 wash/beam lighting fixtures positioned along the central reservation of the bridge.

With the entertainment and event industries increasingly reliant on networking solutions, the Luminex range of high performance Ethernet devices are designed to offer the security of redundant backup cabling for show-critical connections in a simple, robust, “plug and play” manner.

AC-ET is the exclusive UK distributor for the Luminex range.
