Finding a Voice


Lighting Designer Manuel da Costa chose a selection of nearly 200 Robe moving lights to add a touch of sparkle to the lighting for The Voice of


Germany. Having worked with the show since its first series in 2011, Da Costa was provided with quite a flexible brief for the lighting design. The most important thing was for the lighting to be flexible enough to suit each individual artist. Da Costa is a well renowned television lighting designer in Germany, and as he had worked with Robe products in the past, he knew he could use these to create the effects he had in mind. The total selection of Robe products was made up of 98 ColorSpot 2500E ATs, 62


Robe


The Voice of Germany Germany


ColorWash 2500E ATs, 26 ColorWash 1200E ATs and 2 ColorBeam 2500E ATs. A total of 74 of Robe’s ColorSpot 2500E ATs


were rigged within a trussing system above the stage, working together with the other 24, which were hung on a matrix of towers behind the stage and around the central video wall. The 88 ColorWash 2500E ATs and 1200E ATs were also positioned in the roof, whilst the ColorBeam 2500E ATs were positioned centre stage, to provide a dramatic silhouette of artists as they entered and exited the stage. Robe’s products were selected for the project because of the power and intensity that they could provide the stage. “Reliability, colour and output are excellent,” explains Da Costa, who also added that they are very fast moving and their smooth dimming is an excellent feature.
