RAI Televisions Cavalli di Battaglia Utilises Lighting Control by Jands Vista

The award-winning Jands Vista lighting and media control range has once again proved its flexibility and power by providing control for Italian national broadcaster, RAI Television’s primetime Saturday night entertainment show, ‘Cavalli di Battaglia’.

The show retraces the 50 year career of famous Italian actor, Gigi Proietti. Gigi hosted three primetime Saturday night, one man shows reliving the most iconic moments from his repertoire. Friends and colleagues from the entertainment world joined Gigi on stage, recreating famous sketches, music and cinematic moments.

The show’s lighting and video concept was a co-production by RAI Television and lighting designer, Umile Vainieri, who has followed the career of Gigi Proietti since his early days in the industry. The concept was developed accordingly, with conventional lighting used to recall the beginning of Gigi’s career as at this time it was the only technology available. It culminates in the present day with the very latest intelligent fixtures, and a massive LED video wall providing fast changing of background scenery in keeping with the high production values of modern entertainment shows.

As a longtime Jands Vista user, Umile was keen to use his lighting control system of choice for the show.

He specified the flagship Jands Vista L5 console on a rig featuring over 270 Robe fixtures, including Spikies, Pointes, LED Washes, BMFLs, Squares, DL4/7s, and Robin 100s – amounting to over 23 universes of DMX.

A separate Vista T2 console also provided control of the conventional fixtures, in addition to a Vista D1 providing full network wide redundancy.

Summarising his experience using Vista, Umile commented:

Jands Vista Italian dealer, RM Multimedia srl, provided all lighting equipment and technical support for the show production.
