US based lighting manufacturer Chauvet Professional provides the perfect fixtures for a temporary installation to wash a facility at Paramount Studios in show-stopping colour.


Technicolor and Paramount are two bold names in the entertainment industry, and the innovative companies have partnered to develop a brand new post-production sound facility at the Paramount Pictures studio lot. In order to celebrate the opening of this facility, almost 100 CHAUVET® Professional fixtures were used to create a multi-coloured ambience to the space.


Stage façades came to life under the vivid colours of 58 CHAUVET® Professional


COLORado™ 1-Tri Tour static wash lights and 40 CHAUVET® Professional COLORdash™ Batten Tri linear wash lights. The CHAUVET® Professional COLORado™ 1-Tri Tour static wash light was perfect for this particular project because it has specially designed lenses that allow the light from the 14 3-watt tri-coloured LEDs to converge before leaving the fixture. Optional colour blending filters further enrich the wash possibilities of this industry-leading light. Chauvet’s COLORdash™ Batten Tri linear wash lights were also used on the project because they feature a row of 8 3-watt


calibrated tri-colour LEDs that can be programmed to perform complex pixel mapping and intricate runway effects. The product is highly versatile, and also excels as a surface wash or foot/batten light. Multicoloured shadows were not an issue on this project thanks to special optics that blend colours before the light leaves the fixture, creating amazing visual effects. “Technicolor at Paramount wanted something very colourful and vibrant, and naturally,


COLORdash™ Batten Tri and COLORado™ 1-Tri Tour lights were the perfect choice to complement the opening of the


building, with smooth


colourful splashes of colour,” said Foxton Lewyn, lighting designer for the temporary installation and employee of Blue Haze Entertainment rental company that specified the lights.


Aligned along a low artesian fountain delineating the street from a terrace, the COLORado™ 1-Tri Tour wash lights created a beautiful ambience for the 500 guests mingling and enjoying hors d’oeuvres on the terrace. “We placed COLORado™ 1-Tri Tour fixtures on the


ground, using the yokes as stands, which work great every time,” Lewyn said. Also placed on the ground at the wall’s base, COLORdash™ Batten Tri linear wash lights turned Melrose Avenue into a rainbow-filled street, flooding the exterior of the stages and studios in intense colours.
