Fame – Your Club in Rottweil

May 6th, 2010 Posted in EUROLITE, References Tags: , ,

Fascinating nightlife can only be experienced in metropolises or major cities – that is not correct. Outside of Berlin, Hamburg or Munich there are spectacular opportunities to celebrate till the break of dawn. Care for an example? No problem. Let us take a trip to the beautiful province Baden-Württemberg. We are passing Stuttgart heading southwards, towards Lake Constance. At the halfway point, near Villingen-Schwenningen, we stop in Rottweil.

Rottweil is the oldest city in the province. It counts 25,000 inhabitants, 220 associations and a very special discotheque. The latter bears the name “fame” and is probably the most modern disco complex in southern Germany. 1500 square meters with four different areas should offer fair possibilities to turn night into day. And that is exactly what more than thousand people are doing every weekend. The “fame’s” popularity originates not only from its size or its lovely hometown. The answer lies in the mixture of good music and an extraordinary illumination.

It has been the Designgroup Professional GmbH from Böhlen near Leipzig who has taken care of the illumination. They are experts in equipping discotheques and stand out due to their modern design as well as the use of cutting-edge technology. Three years ago, the club owner asked Designgroup to help them. As soon as possible the former construction market should be rebuilt. Everybody involved was hard at work to bequeath a very special club to Rottweil. And after only six months they succeeded.

Since then, night owls can chose between four areas: fame lounge, fame disco, fame club and fame outdoor area. Highlights are numerous in this stylish and fashionable amusement park. An illuminated waterfall behind a bar, thousands of LEDs in the dancefloor and several, perfectly coordinated light effects around the DJ booth and the dancefloor. Only high-quality material has been installed. We are very proud that many Steinigke products were taken into consideration.

Designgroup is a longtime partner of Steinigke. For the “fame’s” interior light design, they decided to use many of our LED products. No wonder, as diodes dominate the scenery. The following light products can be found in Rottweil:

Eurolite LED WMS-8 RGB-Spots, dimmable Eurolite LED-Tubes 144, Eurolite LED RGB PAR 38 spots, Eurolite LED-floods RGB IP65 for outdoors and meters of the RL-1 Rubberlight.

But there is more to it than that. To install the lights high above the dancefloor, several truss circles from Alutruss have been mounted. As the club’s dimensions are quite huge circles with a diameter of up to 6 meters were necessary.

The interaction of technology, music and design offers unequaled opportunities. So everybody – along to the club’s slogan – can “experience a world of colors, first-class sound and party”. This might sound very ambitious, but it is definitely not immoderate. Just visit this world and find it out yourself.

Rocktent Nürnberg

DSC_0029Folk festivals enjoy a long standing tradition in Germany. Everywhere in the country, these celebrations abound. Generally with many carnival rides, tossing and shooting galleries, concession stands and the obligatory beer tents. It’s no different at the Nürnberg folk festival. Every spring and fall, the folk festival takes place at the Nürnberger Dutzendteich Park and attracts round about four million visitors. Somewhat bigger than a parish fair. Yet not only is the size of the spring and fall festival notable. Where musical entertainment is concerned, the operators offer something truly unique with their rocktent. Seating for 6,000 on over 3,300 m². A different band plays every night. And the tent is full nearly every night. No wonder. Especially the youth often wish for an alternative to the classical brass and wind ensembles. And this rocktent successfully offers just such a diversion. The rocktent has been an integral part of the folk festival world for the past 17 years and has meanwhile developed by leaps and bounds into a real attraction, without which modern folk festivals would be unthinkable. Sadis Event Management Service has organized the rocktent since 2008. Responsible for the realization is Christian Sandmann. A good selection of bands isn’t the only thing important to him. The right illumination to put the bands in the limelight is equally important. “A good show needs good music and good lighting” asserts Christian Sandmann. He therefore puts special trust in EUROLITE and FUTURELIGHT brand products on his 30 meter wide stage. “A large stage demands versatile and assertive equipment, and with EUROLITE and FUTURELIGHT I’ve got a good set-up“ so Christian Sandmann. The bands are enthusiastic about the illumination as well, he explains. Not surprising, judging from the deployed arsenal of lighting effects. This year the stage was lit-up with over 50 PAR spotlights, countless moving heads, among which the new FUTURELIGHT Eye-36 could be found, and a pixel mesh in four parts. Additional installations included audience blinders, theater spots, strobes and effect lighting. Next spring it will start all over again. Visitors will come to the folk festival, stream into the rocktent, and surely be thrilled with the music and the lighting. Who says traditional and modern ways of life can’t complement one another? The folk festival in
Nürnberg proves it can work.

Burj Dubai invests in Omnitronic products

January 7th, 2010 Posted in OMNITRONIC, References Tags: , , ,

ee1e2c1bThe highest building in the world has now been inaugurated and answers to the name of Burj Khalifa. It has a height of 828 meters, 189 floors, 54 elevators and 1200 power distributors from Omnitronic.

Higher, faster, farther. This is the device Dubai, the emirate on the Persian Gulf, has identified with. Best example therefor: the Burj Khalifa. Not only its height, also its costs from about 1.5 Billion US-Dollars are absolutely gigantic. The several hundreds of thousand square meters are mainly used for apartments, offices and hotel rooms. Only the best material has been used. In the end, the building, which can still be seen from a distance of 100 kilometers, should be a jewel from the outside and the inside. To play it safe concerning the power distribution of the whole tower, the constructors installed 1200 Omnitronic RLD-8 power distributors. The latter have each 8 IEC output plugs at their disposal, can be used for rack installation and deliver a clear view and easy handling via two extricable LEDs – the volt display also operates with LEDs. Another benefit: the 10 A breaker on the front panel. The Burj Khalifa shows that you can confidently trust on Omnitronic if you are planning to fly at a higher game.
