AC-ET Supply SGM LT-100s to Static Light Company for Magnificent 3D LED Chandelier Display

16th May 2013

A.C. Entertainment Technologies (AC-ET) Ltd. recently supplied 162 x SGM LT-100 3D graphic LED tubes and a Green Hippo HippoCritter media server to lighting solution business, Static Light Company (SLC) for a magnificent interactive chandelier installation at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) event held in Barcelona, Spain.

Servicing clients in the motor tradeshow, exhibition and event industries, SLC design, manufacture, supply and install innovative lighting solutions for many clients around the world.

Appointed by brand experience agency Jack Morton Worldwide, SLC were asked to create an “almost walk-through interactive installation” for their client, Ooredoo’s stand at the high-profile mobile technology tradeshow event, MWC.

Researching the viability of products in the marketplace, SLC’s Andy Mama began searching for a product that had a convincing 360 degree viewable angle and that would allow for colour changing and pixel mapping effects. For this, Andy found SGM’s modular, lightweight LT-100 LED graphic tubes to be the perfect solution.

Distributed by AC-ET in the UK and Ireland to the rental and architectural lighting sectors, Andy came to the company looking to fulfill several requirements for his project. With four specialist product sales divisions, access to over 200 leading brands and in-house manufacturing services; AC-ET were able to provide SLC with the large order of 162 SGM LT-100 fixtures, 27 SGM TLD-612 drivers, a Green Hippo HippoCritter media server and hundreds of metres of cable - quickly, efficiently and within budget.

Working closely with Lighting Designer, Ross Corbett, the circular decorative chandelier feature was constructed from 162 LT-100 LED tubes, which were suspended at varying heights from a 3m box truss. The box truss was also used to carry and conceal all the power supplies and cables, which allowed for the tubes to be raised and lowered independently of the main truss, however “It turned out that this was hardly necessary, as the SGM LT-100 and cabling performed exceptionally reliably; it went up and stayed up – solid as a rock”, Andy explains.

Comprising of a series of one metre long pixel sticks loaded with RGB LEDs – each of the LT-100’s pixels can be addressed individually via DMX to create stunning 3D lighting effects.

Using the Green Hippo HippoCritter media server supplied by AC-ET, low-res video content was pixel mapped to the LT-100 tubes, creating dazzling colour changing effects and movements.

Andy comments “The reactions from spectators was thrilling…this was a really fun project which allowed us to introduce a technology rarely seen in a corporate tradeshow environment.”

Concluding, Andy explains “The service and support from AC-ET has been invaluable… the efficiency and speed of the supply was critical to the success of the project.”
